And seeing the terror on the faces of the people, QIII did speak to them, saying "Fear not the Terminal, for it is a road both swift and secure to the Great Mysteries of Linux without passing through the dangers of The Land of Ten Thousand Competing Desktop Environments."
When I have 2 tabs open in Firefox and close it it saves the 2 open pages (I have tab control installed as an addon).
When I restart or logoff and back on and open Firefox, it is not behind the top panel for some reason.
But, if there are not more than one tab saved it opens behind the top panel just like everything else.
For now I will just hide the top panel. Found you have to press ALT+SUPER plus right click in Gnome Classic to get to the menu for autohide.
That's why I love Ubuntu: you learn something pretty often.
Alt + Super + rightclick is needed if you are running compiz with desktop effects.
Alt + rightclick does absolutely nothing to a panel in that situation.
The changed behavior is undocumented, inconsistent, undiscoverable and annoying ... until you find out about it and get used to it. Then it is merely one more quirk.
UPDATE: OK - just tried it and both alt + rightclick and al t+ super+ rightclick now work. Looks like there was an undocumented change back.

Life's a pitch. And then you sing!
Just to verify, I logged into Unity and nothing works on the top panel, I tried ALT+Right Click, ALT+SUPER+Right Click and nothing.
I also tried just right click and nothing.
Nothing works at all on my top panel in Unity and in Gnome Classic, the only thing that works for me on the top panel is ALT+Super+Right Click.
When I go to System Tools > Preferences > Keyboard Input Methods a box pops up that says
"Keyboard Input Methods (IBus Daemon) has not been started. Do you want to start it now?"
I clicked Yes and in the box it says this:
"IBus has been started! If you can not use IBus, please open System Menu -> System Settings ->
Language Support and set the "Keyboard Input Method" to "ibus", then log out and back in again."
Then Ibus Preferences opened up.
If I logout and back in the IBus Daemon is not started and it asks the same thing.
But, under System tools > System Settings > Keyboard Layout I have not changed anything.
