    Actually, I think they need more than the red, yellow, green buttons. I think they need a button dedicated to this function, but not the green button, because people expect that to maximize it.

    ...and once the window has been maximized and one wants to return it to a smaller size? What then? It only stands to reason that the button that maximizes a window will also minimize it back down; otherwise it would be maximizing in perpetuity. The green button was correct before the alteration; it maximized the mini-player into a full-sized player, and minimized the full-sized player back into a mini-player. No 4th button is needed. What's needed is a fix to this; it seems like a small glitch, but it's actually quite annoying.

    Standard functionality for the green button is to toggle between maximum size and a smaller user defined size. The previous behaviour did not ever maximize the window size, it just switched between the mini player and a user defined size - the only way to get full screen was to resize the window by hand.

    Switching it back would lose the feature of maximizing the window. Adding a fourth button would preserve both options. What would the problem be with adding a new button for toggling the mini player?

    Although I can't readily find how to submit a bug report, I too would like to see the old functionality replaced. The only easy way to use iTunes in the background is as the MiniPlayer. It may break Apple's UI guidelines, but in some ways, so does having a MiniPlayer.

    Please bring back the MiniPlayer toggle!

    You can run itunes in the background with quicksilver I think.

    It's actually more the issue of seeing what's on, and not blocking everything with a large window, for me.

    Yes! They listened...thanks, Apple. iTunes 9.0.1, just out, returns the zoom button behavior we're used to. MiniFinder toggles with mainscreen; alternate screen size comes when you hold Option down.

    Yes! It's back! The latest iTunes update "fixes" it. My green button minifinder is back! Thank you Apple!
