I'm running firefox 3.6.3 on XP Media Center, and I was just playing with shortcuts. All of a sudden, I had a window pop up with thumbnails of all of my tabs in it! I've never seen it, and I closed it and now I can't get it back.

Anyone know how to get this up?

windows key and tab

That doesn't do it. That just switches between the stuff in the taskbar.

This is a new feature of Firefox, which is not enabled by default. If you saw it, then it's enabled and is accessible by clicking the small button with four white boxes on the far right side of the tab bar.

To enable it, open a new tab and enter about:config in the address bar and press enter.

In the search field, enter browser.allTabs.previews. Double click the resulting setting to turn it on (true). Restart Firefox.

I hardly use it since I don't have so many tabs up at once that I can't remember each one but if so then I just look at the tab titles to know which one is which. It helps if you have a lot of tabs open from the same website where the tab listings look the same though.
