New windows are hidden and inaccessible. How can I get to them?
Mac 10.6.6 - Firefox 4.0
If ever I accidentally open a link in a new window it does not show up. It is listed under the Window menu, but no where else. I have tried all the Mac shortcuts to get all windows to show, but it is never among them.
The only thing that fixes this is to completely shut down firefox and restart it.

Any new window I open is hidden. Restarting firefox does not correct this for me. Even the downloads window is inaccessible.
I've had the same problem but I have a work around for it.
1. Do you use dual monitors? 2. Is Firefox displayed on the 2nd monitor?
1. Move the visible Firefox windows to the primary monitor. 2. Close Firefox completely. 3. Open Firefox.
As long as you keep Firefox on the primary monitor, you should be able to open new windows and drag tabs to create new windows as much as you want.
P.S. Any devs reading this, please fix!! Its really annoying.
SAME ISSUE. Very frustrating. Please fix!
Sorry.. 10.7.2 FireFox 8.0.1
