** Summary changed:

- Could not start a Firefox session minimized on System Tray or Task List; windows pop up on desktop instead.
+ Could not start a Firefox session in background; windows pop up on desktop instead

** Description changed:

  Binary package hint: firefox
  
  A Firefox session is opened automatically when you start Firefox, if you
  have chosen "show windows and tabs from last time" in Startup
  preferences. Furthermore, if you do not close Firefox 3 explicitly
  before logging out, the saved session will be opened automatically after
  logging in next time. A Firefox session can contain a lot of windows
- that are opened on top of each other in the desktop and you can not use
+ that are opened on top of each other on the desktop and you can not use
  your computer while windows keep popping up.
  
- I would like to get Firefox opened minimized so that I can use my
- computer while Firefox is starting up. It would be nice, if would be
- able to choose to work by a Firefox window while some other Firefox
- windows are "opening" in background.

  I can not start Firefox minimized by command "kstart --iconify firefox
- &". Even if I could, I am not sure, if this would open the session
- minimized, when Firefox starts automatically after logging in.

- I can start e.g. OpenOffice.org iconified (to the Task List) by

- Actually, I would like to have all applications started minimized or in
- system tray, when a saved desktop session is returned after logging in
- to desktop environment.
