You have a point here.

Sorry for the misunderstanding. My point was that, with GNOME 3, the
problems your mother was having have been solved, and minimization now
works way better, paradoxally.

Exactly: your mother was using minimization for things that don't really
need minimization. And, in this case, I fully recommand not to use
minimization. But for the apps I mention, minimization does make sense,
and though a better solution might be found, allowing those apps (and
only them) to use minimization (the way I described it before) would fix
it for me.
