Windows 7: Flip 3D (Window Switcher) in I.E / Firefox context menu

Flip 3D (Window Switcher) in I.E / Firefox context menu

I want to add Flip (window switcher) 3D to my web context menu.
I had contact with somebody (elsewhere) who told me he was on this site who'd adapted what he'd done on WinXP and was adapting it for win7 and nearly cracked it. The scripts, reg entries, whatever, he sent me were as he said, in Alpha. I gave them a try but, at the time, it wasn't reliable, although FF was better (was Alpha after all. And yes, I did check for what I thought may be "nasties"). Sometimes it would be in context menu, then it wouldn't. But I've lost him (?).
If anyone else has an idea, please let me know.I'm willing to test.

B.T.W I've got it in all the other context menus, it's just annoying when you've got the web full screen and you can't get at them without minimising the window. AND I do know the keyboard short-cuts.

Yea that's the sort of thing, although a (small) compromise, if you use Flip 3D it shows all, web and explorer pages. Can't comment on above but from your piccy it appears to be the web pages only but I'm willing to compromise (Hell, I'm married!!) and I'll give it a go.

Win+tab shows IE or FF as a window, but this extention shows open FF tabs only. Do you want all the open windows and FF tabs at a time, or something else ?

Try this: type about:config into FF filter on "preview" turn "browser.taskbar.preview" on and also browser.alltabs.preview

Window switcher instead of Alt tab?
I'm thinking of replacing alt tab entirely with the 3-d version. The only downside I see is that you can't use just 1 alt-tab to quickly switch to your last active window. Is there another reason to use the old alt-tab other than personal preference? It is quite a thumb cramper to curl under...
