The Firefox icon often disappears from the toolbar when I go to another window like Outlook or Media Player. When I close down all other windows it reappears again. What can I do about that?

When it has disappeared I can open Firefox again using the menu or the opening icon on the toolbar, but then it only shows up blank, so without the tabs that were opened before. Closing down all other icons on the toolbar is the only way to make the Firefox icon reappear and for me to open Firefox again with all my tabs. Please excuse my English, the jargon is difficult.

Can you go back to that Firefox window via Alt + Tab ?

Thanks for your reply, cor-el. The odd thing is, this problem hasn't occurred again since I posted it. What kind of magic is that? :-))

It really is odd, since I had it at least twice a week for several months. So far, so good, then. I'll wait a while more, and will then close it as being solved. I guess that's the procedure. We'll put it down to temporary bugs or pc mysteries. Though I like the magic option more...

Well cor-el, in the meantime this problem has happened again a few times and I have been able to solve it by your advice alt+tab. It took me a little while to understand how that works, but now I know. Thanks a million! You're great and somehow, Firefox feels good.
