Loaded updates for Firefox and other suggested pkgs day before yesterday and now whenever I hit the minimize button at the top right, the windows disappear altogether. Doesn't matter what the app is, I've tried it on terminal, openoffice, browser, etc.
Checked the processes (ps -aef|more) and the app is still running...somewhere out there in bit bucket limbo. FWIW, I put the apps on a separate workspack, and as far as the workspace is concerned, it shows that it's not running at all, even tho the process is still running.
I had another browser up in Hulu, paused a movie, hit minimize and it naturally disappears. A few minutes later I hear the movie playing but I don't have a browser/Hulu up anywhere that I can see, so I have to kill the browser process in order the get rid of the movie.
Am I doing something wrong? I don't think so.
Something else new: I sudo su to root in a terminal and it only asks for the password the first time I do it. After that, I kill off the terminal windows and open another one and it never asks for the password when I sudo. For all I know that's how it always has acted, but I don't care for this feature, myself. Again, if I've configured something dumb on this thing through the GUIs (I did nothing as root), please let me know.
