    Does anyone that uses this feature know what to do with multiple windows of the same app? I minimized 3 Firefox windows, then can only get one back. Is there a way to make this work with multiple windows? I was hoping for a stacks like feature.

    Click and hold the icon on the dock to use dock expose, that will show all the minimized windows.

    Yo, you need to go work for Apple. Implementing Stacks into that would be killer.

    Thank you, that is what I wanted. I found if I right-clicked that I could pull up the windows, but this is a better way.

    Well, I just figured that would be the obvious way to do it.

    It would be very similar to the way 7 (and vista to a certain extent) handled windows. And i would love it too.

    Other than this issue the thing that irks me the most is that you cant tell at a glance if there are minimized windows or not. If i'm really busy i cant remember if i have multiple firefox windows open or not.

    Yeah, a little badge like the iPhone has would be sweet. Just a number added with how many windows are minimized.

    Whenever you Exposé you'll see the minimized windows anyway.

    Exactly what Expose needs right now!

    That tiny diamond is practically invisible; and certain apps like Firefox don't show it.

    It would also help if there is more contrast in this new Dock menu. Light gray on a dark translucent gray background? iSquint! :p
