Click on Icon on toolbar -> maximizes all windows

Hi there!

i was wondering if there is a posiblity to configure the toolbar(icon bar???) as follows:
if you click on the icon from firefox, for example, and you have 3 firefox windows open, you'll get a small popup with a preeview of the 3 firefox windows...
What i want is more like mac os x. if you click on the firefox icon, you'll get all 3 windows maximazing at the time, and the one on fucus is the latest before minimizing.

is there any possiblity for this?
thank you very much!

Really...comments about copying who and what are not necessary...if they were copying OSX Microsoft would have been sued the hell out of by Apple already...

Icon Size on Desktop Toolbar
I've searched for a while now but can't seem to find a way to increase the size of the icons on the desktop toolbar. Maybe it's something that can't be done but it'd be good because they look silly that small when you have large icons set on the taskbar
