I often open multiple pages such as two or three and want one on top the other below but if I click minimize they all get hide. How could I view multiple pages?

Please someone reply and oblige.

Re: viewing multiple pages in Firefox

Does it help you to have two midsize pages side by side? Also you know you can open a web page then reduce it to in icon on the taskbar, then double click on the big firefox icon to open a second browser for a second web page. this way you will not have tabs. after you open second browser make it midsize. Then make the icon full size then midsize. Then place pointer on top edge of browser hold down left click and move left or right.

I am not sure this will work on your system. When I have multi pages open the firefox icon on my task bar has offset images like playing cards. When I place my pointer on that icon small boxes appear above the icon. If I move my pointer up to the image I want and left click it is restored full size. I have windows 8 your vista may be different. When you have multi pages do you have multi tabs at the top of the page? If so change pages by left clicking on the tab you want.

Hi, Thank you for reply yes I do got Vista and I can see tabs, let me give you an easy example. If I want to move images or files from one folder to another we can minimize one window and drag and drop on the other. We can see the fully opened windows behind the minimized window right. This is how we can do in web browser. Do I need some Add-ons something like Browser splitter?

Thank you.

Re: viewing multiple pages in Firefox

You are now asking a different question. If you try to an image from one web page display to another web page I think the web page would not like this as you are changing the web page display. I only know that if you use the right click button on your mouse while the pointer is on a photo it will display many options. You can save image to a file, email image or open link in new window. You have many options. If my first answer helped you go back and click on the yes button under my answer.

Yes this is what I wanted to do. Ok I will follow your steps and see. Thank you for help.

I have just applied your method and it worked. Just I wonder when I open two or three tabs why don't it appear in the task bar?

Thank you for solving my problem.

Glad I could help did not understand problem at first. Also want you to know you can have 3 or 4 browsers open at the same time. Open the first browser go to your web page reduce it to an icon on taskbar. Open another browser with the big icon get web page, reduce to icon. And so on notice as you build up icons they overlap. Put pointer on the icon stack and small images appear above, move pointer up to the one you want single left click will make it full size.
