Safari problem - My Yellow "minimize window" icon disappeared!

You know those 3 icons on the top left of the Safari screen?
Sure you do.

Well, my yellow "light" never lights up any more?
Maybe you know why?

My Safari Version 3.1.2
Mac OS X 10.4.11

Try opening a QuickTime movie and view it in full screen mode, then quit QuickTime.

Let me know if this has any effect on the Safari minimise window button coming back to life.

FYI, the other methods for minimising windows are Command M & double-clicking the window's title bar.

Command M & double-clicking the window's title bar also did not work.
But guess what, quitting QT as you suggested - WORKED!

Now what was THAT all about????

VirtualTracy - did Quicktime have anything to do with removing the minimze feature
in the 1st place?
Fastmac - why bother if you add nothing?
