I have always used FFM as well (I just can't live without it, it
seems, as I sometimes want to focus a window (IRC chat) without
bringing the entire window to the foreground). The main issue that I
see is that it's hard to open the menu with the mouse, so I'm using
F10 or Alt+Letter for that. Otherwise it works quite well here, and
I'm pretty sure that you and I are not the only FFM users..

So perhaps these anomalies are also specific to screen/monitor
layout/setup etc.?
