Windows 7: Taskbar flashing for Firefox with new Gchat Messages

19 Jan 2011   #1

Windows 7 Home Premium x64
Taskbar flashing for Firefox with new Gchat Messages


This is my first post, and I have been unable to find a satisfactory answer after searching through the forums.

I am currently using Windows 7 Home Premium x64 with taskbar grouping turned on. In previous versions, the taskbar icon would flash when a new gchat message was received from within Gmail. However, with the grouped icons, they no longer flash on new messages.

Is there a way that anyone has found to enable this without ungrouping the icons? Is this something that can be fixed by the people at firefox or gmail? Or is there a windows setting I can change.

Thanks again for your help, please feel free to ask any questions.

I do not have an answer, but I would like to second the importance of finding a solution for this problem. As it stands, grouped icons are UNUSABLE for me.
