1. Linux support
- This is partly done. There are still glitches in it though. #DONE

2. Extra items in the menus
- I don't use some of the applications that the extension supports. If you can tell me why they should be there, I may add them.

3. Minimize application to tray after selectable period of inactivity
- This could be done (note to self nsIIdleService), and I am considering it

4. Minimize the application if the turbo icon is clicked. #DONE

5. Add short cut keys to restore a minimized window

6. Changing the settings like "Only display on icon" should be applied instantly.

7. A "boss key" and related functionality could be implemented.

8. Support for more applications like Instantbird, Chatzilla and Spicebird

9. Support for more platforms, such as 64bit Windows and 32bit Linux

10. Maybe a hidden setting for always start minimized.

About when the window restores, and minimizes
http://codefisher.org/forum/viewtopic.php?pid=3874#p3874
Don't minimize popup windows, use the chromehidden attribute to detect. chrmehidden is non empty for popups

Please post any of your feature requests here and I will update this post to reflect the current requests and extension's status.

Known Bugs

* On Linux there are problems with the tray menu of the icon created when the -turbo flag is used to start the application.
* Again on Linux windows are not restored to the same place as before they were before being hidden
* Empty tab sometimes opens http://codefisher.org/forum/viewtopic.php?pid=2609

I'm not sure if you'd call this a feature or a bug, but with Thunderbird I notice that when it's minimized to the tray, when I get a pop-up alert for a new email and click on the alert, the Thunderbird window pops up then immediately minimizes back to the tray.

It'd be nice to just click on the pop-up and have the window open.

Yes I know, I have gone over kill on preventing the window from restoring. There are some cases where it wants to and I don't want it too, and some where it should.

Try version 1.0.3 at http://codefisher.org/download/minimize/ it will always let the window restore if something activates it.

I just installed 1.03, but I get the exact same behaviour.
Oh well, it's a minor thing. This is still a really handy extension.

Ok, maybe I did not change everything I thought I had in that minor release. Next time then...

Thank you for this great add-on that i use on thunderbird.

I'd love to see some new features:
1. ask the master password before restoring application
2. place icon on tray although it is not minimized and clicking the icon minimizes the application.
3. an option to place minimize icon on toolbar.

thanks in advance

1. I worry this could just lead to a false sense of security. I could just kill the process and open it again in save mode (no extensions enabled). Consider locking the screen instead.

2. There is already an option to always show the tray icon. I guess this could be extended.

3. There is already a toolbar button available in the customize toolbar window.

If you have been following some of the other threads you would see that 1.0.3 is known to crash all the time. Fixed that in 1.0.4, and then another bug in 1.0.5

What wording you suggest?

been trying to i thought some were vista (hate the OS) specific
One of the flowing:
Only show one tray icon.
Only show one system tray icon.
Only show one tray icon at a time.
Only show one system tray icon at a time.
For people that don't know what a tray icon is:
Only show one tray icon. (By the clock)
Only show one system tray icon. (By the clock)
Only show one tray icon at a time. (By the clock)
Only show one system tray icon at a time. (By the clock)
or link tray icon/system tray icon to a picture or page
i honestly took a wile to figure out what it meant it read smother without the 'ever'

Request:
�Never show on taskbar
Would require
�Minimize from try icon (already on todo list)

Yes I guess the word "ever" does not really add much except possible confusion.

As to the request, no that is certainly not easily doable. Trying to mess with that could totally screw up everything.

i know there is a windows tool called 'tray it' i don't know if the source is public or not may be worth a look if you ever attempt it

I think it would start go beyond what I want the extension to be.

Also when I checked the windows API for M$ windows it does not look like there is any easy way or doing it. So I guess if it can be done it would be horribly messy.

Not sure if it's a known bug (apologies if so): with MinimizeToTray Plus 1.0.5 installed in Firefox 3.5.3, on restoring from the tray icon, the window is no longer maximised, as it was before being minimized to the tray, but is in the "restored" state.

Thanks,
Tim

Known problem, It is my current easy way around another problem. I am looking for a more permeate solution.

Hi
Great add-on, very simple, but does what I expect from it.
One small request, though: When closing the last window with CTRL-W, Firefox closes instead of minimizing to tray. Can you please implement that?
Thanks, refi

I that sounds fairly easy to do. I will tray and get that fixed in the next day or so.

Note to self the functions are BrowserTryToCloseWindow() and BrowserCloseTabOrWindow()
