User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.9.0.13) Gecko/2009080315 Ubuntu/9.04 (jaunty) Firefox/3.0.13
Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.9.0.13) Gecko/2009080315 Ubuntu/9.04 (jaunty) Firefox/3.0.13

I'm using Xubuntu Jaunty on AMD64.  When I minimize FireFox Alt Tab does not bring it back to the foreground.  There is no icon or anything else to click on to bring FireFox to the foreground.  When I minimize Mozilla Thunderbird it responds to alt tab nicely.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1.  Run Firefox from the Xfce Panel (Xubuntu jaunty)
2.  Minimize it
3.  Try to bring it back with alt tab.  You can't.  Try to bring it back by clicking on anything in Xfce Workspace.  You can't.
