Thanks Marius, I have Compiz Config activated and am sure it's a setting 
that I need to get to but I don't know which one.

An example of what I need: when Thunderbird is in the proces of sending 
a long mail with attachments, I used to be able to click on the 
Thunderbird launcher icon to see miniatures of all the open Thunderbird 
windows, then I could click on the Inbox miniature window and go there 
while the mail is still being sent on the other window. Now I have to 
wait until the mail is sent off before I can access the Inbox.

The other feature coupled to this, that I miss, is when more than one 
website is open in Firefox, there used to be the corresponding number of 
pointers in the icon, showing that multiple sites are open. Again, I 
could simply click on the launcher icon and could then see miniatures of 
all the open sites to select the one I wanted.
