Windows 7: Alt+Tab question using Windows Aero Snap feature

Alt+Tab question using Windows Aero Snap feature

Hi everyone!
I really hope what I'm looking to achieve is possible since it would make my life that much easier :)
I'm a translator and I use the Aero Snap feature to dock two Word documents side by side (one is the original text and the other is my translation). This is extremely useful since I can scroll on both of these documents without having to actually have the specific document I wish to scroll in as the active window.
I also use Firefox for general help with translations, looking for information, etc...
What I desperately need is to be able to Alt+Tab from having both these documents displayed to Firefox and then from Firefox back to having both of them displayed again.
As it currently stands Alt+Tab from Firefox obviously only opens up one of these documents and when I click to bring up the second Word document I lose the Alt+Tab back to Firefox since now I can only Alt+Tab between the two Word documents.
Is there any other key combination that would allow me to achieve what I'm trying to do?
Thank you so very much for taking the time to read and help if you can :)

Odd question - regarding the snap auto maximize feature
Hi everyone, This is a strange question but after spending an hour trying to find an answer on the web, I figure I would try here. The snap feature that maximizes folders when you drag them off screen produces a really neat graphical effect that I would love to reproduce. The portion that is...
Aero Snap question.
I am only able to snap windows to the left or right side of the screen. Dragging a window to the top maximizes it again. I thought I read somewhere that with Aero Snap you could snap to the four corners so that if you wanted you could have four windows one in each corner. I can't seem to do that....

Windows usual 'snap to grid' feature is gone???
Hi, I'm hoping that somebody can tell me where snap-to-grid is gone to. I see it just fine on the desktop but if you delve into a directory there seems to be no way to turn off auto arrange/snap to grid. Therefore this is turning out to be a bit of a pain. If you want to copy a bunch of files...
