Stupid Gnome question....

Am I stupid or is this just not possibel:
If I have 4 or more Nescape windows open in Gnome, the task symbols in the taskbar move together into one task. But I really don't want this. How do I turn it off?

I don't think you can turn it off. I believe that the task symbols run as a process of the program list and not as a Netscape process. The 4 open windows, i assure you, are acting independantly of each other, it is just that it takes less memory to run the icons all at the same time than to stagger them.

hey Config, they become one, but you just place your mouse pointer on top of it, and you can select independetly from each other. They still preserve the same order as well, but now its like a sticky note sort of thing,

Well, thank you for answering this old thread..... well, I eventually figured it out on my own... you can simply choose, when grouping starts - but I'm not using gnome at the moment anyway. I have used Mandy 8.1 at this time but I switched to SuSE
