Firefox+Firetray in KDE ubuntu 12.04 #50

Hi...

If firetray for TB is just perfectly integrated and useful in KDE (through desktops and activities) it may be not the same with FireFox...

As long as there is only one window open for firefox, it behaves as expected :

a- minimize or close gets the FF icon in sytray
b- click the icon re-open the window on the current desktop (and THAT is great)
c- and right-click you can quit FF.

But if the main window of FF has opened a secondary window (any dialog-box or page...) then :

a- ...gets ONE icon in systray - should not be one by opened window ?
b- ...re-open all previously active windows - it seems natural
c- ...quit ALL the windows in once meaning that on next re-opening of FF one will have as many instances of FF as they were previously active windows before quitting - which can quick become pretty annoying.

In my mind and on y pc it's very clear - hope my words are too.

Hi,
oh ok, so this is a usability-UX question.

But if the main window of FF has opened a secondary window (any dialog-box or page...) then :
a- ...gets ONE icon in systray - should not be one by opened window ?

No, but notice the hidden windows' names in the popup menu of the tray icon, so you can possibly restore only one. Suppose you have now 10 FF windows open. Would you like to have 10 tray icons also ? And even then, how do you know which one you'd like to restore ? We'd need the title of the page in the icon tooltip.

b- ...re-open all previously active windows - it seems natural

You mean by clicking on the tray icon right ?

c- ...quit ALL the windows in once meaning that on next re-opening of FF one will have as many instances of FF as they were previously active windows before quitting - which can quick become pretty annoying.

You mean by clicking on the Quit link in the popup menu, or with Ctrl-Q, ...?
Isn't this FF's defaults behaviour ?
Since I believe it's FF's default behaviour, I'm unlikely to change it, but what behaviour do you expect instead ?
