Please, can we have a Windows menu with the Moz functionality? It's the 
main reason I mostly use Moz instead of Firefox.

When I think about it, I'm not sure I know why I use Firefox. I use 
tbird because of all the settings I created when I decided to try it 
out, and mostly I only have one window.

I've only got seven Moz windows open atm; a dozen is more usual, and in 
a single window a couple of dozen tabs (I just counted one).

I really need the list of windows to find others.
