Double-click to minimize windows

I've lost the ability to double-click a window's title bar to minimize it to the dock. I double-click and nothing happens. Maybe I turned this off by accident? Is there a preference somewhere for this? I can't seem to find where I would have shut it off.

That setting, for double-clicking to minimize, is in your Appearance pref pane.

confirmed for Snow Leopard

This feature is still enabled in the Appearance settings in Mac OSX version 10.6.4.

Both DeltaMac and mattdanger are very correct--go to Appearance from System Preferences in the Apple menu and check 'Minimize when double-clicking a title bar'. That should fix everything here.

It's actually in the "General" pref pane now in Lion.
