Windows 7: why does a thumbnail minimize a browser?

why does a thumbnail minimize a browser?

I have my Firefox browser window open on my external monitor and Windows Live Mail 2011 open on the main monitor of my lappy. When I move my cursor to the taskbar, and over the email thumbnail on the taskbar, the larger thumbnail comes up. FINE; but WHY does it make the browser window disappear? I believe this is a new "feature" of Windows 7 but so far I don't like it and would like to turn it off if possible. I want the browser window to STAY as is. Thanks!
