Windows 7: Help with opening pinned icons

Help with opening pinned icons

If I have multiple Firefox browsers open that are not in full screen mode, once clicked on, that screen disappears before I can reach it with my pointer.
This happen with all pinned icons that are not in full screen mode or a small notification box.
Someone mentioned that Lenovo maybe had an update that messed with the settings.
Any thoughts?

Opening files with pinned programs, and other tips
So recently I've seen that some people still use quicklaunch, which perplexes me a bit. I can't think of anything you can do with quicklaunch that you cannot do with the regular pinned icons via a keypress or two.
