Windows 7: Firefox or Win7/64 issue?

Apologies for the terminology issue. I thought a new window was a new instance... as opposed to just a new tab in an existing window.

Would a new instance look any different in my taskbar compared to a new window? If not, how are they differentiated?

Lastly, any idea why a new window wouldn't open without going through the hoops mentioned in the OP?

No problem on the terminology - glad you got it worked out.

A new 'instance' would not look any different in the task-bar. There is no way to tell them apart just like your groupings in the task-bar. Aero-peek will display your tabs in the task-bar, but another 'instance' would still show up in the same manner. You would only truly notice another 'instance' when you have two entries in the task manager with firefox.exe - similiar to what Chrome and IE8/9 do, but per tab instances is not ready for Firefox.

Sorry, I have no idea why the hoops were required - as someone stated: 'Computers'
