When I press F9/F10 for the new feature in Panther called "Exposé", there is a
small window that shows up and I cannot get rid of it. Its a small thing, but
its quite annoying...

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Closed all windows in program.
2. Restarted
3. Checked preferences menus etc.

Actual Results:  
Nothing was fixed.

Expected Results:  
Mozilla Firebird should have shown only the windows that I actually had open
when using the Exposé feature.
I have noticed for some time that when I alt-~ through the open windows in
Firebird there is a hidden window of some kind: the other windows title bars
will dim, but there is no apparent window. It seems that this is the same
problem, now revealed more easily using Expose.
Confirming. See also Bug 223545, this bug's twin in Mozilla Proper, and Bug
150028, the original Hidden Window on Mac bug (featuring the option-minimize and
command-~ appearances of the elusive window)

the hidden window gets the menubar functional again incomplete workaround of Bug 21296 and keeps 
the firefox open if no window is visibly open.
fixing this would make firefox on mac look much cleaner.

Can confirm this behavior using Mac OS X 10.3 and Firefox 0.9.1

Its probably the most annoying cosmetic bug I've noticed, and definetly needs
fixing before 1.0

Interesting, it doesn't occur when I am running in dual screen mode with my CRT,
only when I am running using my Powerbook's LCD screen by itself.
To stop a window from being affected by Exposé, you should be able to adapt this code: http://

However, the hidden window will still be noticeable when using command-tilde to cycle windows.
The CGSTagSticky hack doesn't block the movement of the window during Exposé's
"Show Windows", only during "Show Desktop".
I do *not* witness this behavior using Firefox 0.9.1 under OS X 10.3.4.

I have the same setup and witness this behavior when pressing both F9 and F10.
So I don't think this has been fixed.

Sometimes, you'll see this as a minimized winodw in the dock.
