Re: [dwm] File browser window pop-up in web browser

I have tried moving around the windows with MOD+left mouse click, to see if
any windows were hidden. Only the single terminal and Firefox was open. I
also tried MOD+k for the sake of trying, but to no avail. I haven't put
anything in config.h about Firefox or Iceweasel (I left it at default), so
maybe I'll need to do something about that.
