    Firefox's matter ... ???

    Generally, when i download a file, firefox will opened a small download's window for me.
    Let's say ... if I minimize both windows.
    The window, which able to be re-maximized is the download's window only.
    I unable to maximized the FF's main window.

    Is it normal? how can it be solved?

    In order to re-maximized the main window is:
    I select the downloading file, and open the download page.

    I might be helpful to name your desktop being used, in all the ones I use unity or gnome 3 the main FF window is available as well as the download window.

    If you are using unity you should see a little dot left of the icon in the left panel I believe, just clicking the FF icon should bring up both I believe.

    I rarely use unity anymore though I may not have this correct.

    Yup I see it! If the download's window was showed ... it will be 3 dots/triangle.
    But no matter which dot/triangle I click, the main FF's window would not show up.
    How can it be fixed?

    Hard to tell if this is just user error, or not understanding the desktop, or you have tweaked say compiz, or who knows what, you might just try
    Code:
    unity --reset
    in the terminal to reset the desktop.

    What if you double click the icon in the side panel? Unitys default behavior is to open the last opened window if clicking on a stack of minimized windows.
    Double clicking ti should bring up both windows and you can choose the one to reopen.

    No matter, which I click ... dot/triangle or Firefox's icon ... the only show up window is the download's window only. the main window would not show up.
    In order to make the main window to show up, I required to choose the downloaded file, right-click, and click open the download page.
