Open a window then option-minimize brings all Mozilla windows to the dock. With
Jaguar it has been reported users can close windows from the dock... this could
cause problems with jaguar and mozilla.
Confirmed using FizzillaCFM/2002052918 (rv1.0.0). The Hidden Window is shown in the Dock 
following an Option-Minimize operation.

Hmmm... doing some reading this looks like the OS is doing the work here. 
Option-click even does utility windows which 'you can't minimize' (in other
applications). Even with custom windows

I'm not seeing a minimize event which could be ignored. 

I suppose some kind of idle-time task could always be unminimizing the Hidden
window, to hack around it, but ick.  I don't know enough Mozilla guts to propose
anything serious.
this also happens when cycling windows (command-` aka command-~), causing
something of a ui issue - no visible window has focus.
