Safari window cannot be minimized

    Something is very strange. The yellow minimize button on the Safari is greyed out, the minimize option from the window button is greyed out, and I get an error sound everytime I press Apple key + M to minimize the Safari window. I did not tweak anything in my preferences, and now that I'm trying to tweak the minimize option back into existence, I can't find it anywhere. The Safari Help is no help at all.

    The minimize option of all other applications are working just fine. It's just Safari that is being weird.

    How can I fix this? :confused: Thanks.

    If you don't find any other solution, you can try to reset Safari. Go to Safari -> Reset Safari…

    Be warned:

    I did that, as a sort of last resort, but the minimize option still wouldn't work. Finally, I had to resort to using Expose massively for the rest of the night, and then, quite annoyed, shut down the computer before I went to bed.

    Now Safari is back to normal. How strange.

    Edit: I do remember even restarting my entire computer last night, but to no avail. Maybe my Safari needed to sleep for eight hours, having been through a difficult tour of duty lately. Haha! :)

    Yes, really weird. Maybe someday I'll find out why that happened. Thanks, PatrickGaerlan.
