Is there a way to switch easily between specific windows belonging to the same given application?
For example, open Firefox, maximise the window; then, open its History window (History menu -> Show all history), maximise it too. Is there an easy way to switch between these two maximised Firefox windows, without necessarily minimising the current window (or other windows in front of the required window)? Similarly, if I open another application alongside, how can I quickly go to the Firefox window of my choice?
I have tried Alt+Tab, but when coming back from another application, which of the Firefox windows I end up with seems indeterministic.
Under Gnome, I would find the window I'm looking for in the bottom bar.
Under OSX, I would right-click on the application's icon and choose the relevant window from the list.
Under Windows 7, I would click on the application icon and choose from the smaller windows.
Is there something similar that's not activated or not visible by default in Unity? Hovering my mouse until I've found somewhere worth hovering over hasn't been very successful so far.
I would prefer a click-based solution, but solutions involving key short-cuts instead are welcome.
