I solved the problem: When I first put my computer up, I had some trouble with the HDMI signal on my monitor. So I connected both cables, so I could switch easily, whenever necessary. I forgot about it and apparently Ubuntu started seeing it as two different monitors. So the windows disappeared onto the 'other screen', which was non-existent and that ...
