I have to use Mac in my work from yesterday and I'd like to know how can I make active one particular window if I have opened let's say 3 firefox windows or 3 terminal windows by one mouse click. Is there any way I can have list of all way available open applications and its windows?

To add to Mark's answer, with one mouse click you can also left-click and hold the application icon in the dock, and it will lay out the windows associated with that application using Exposé. Then you can select the window you want.

not ergonomic in my opinion but the best available ... – Radek Jul 15 '10 at 4:00

If you cmd (or right click) on the the app in the dock you get a list of the apps windows to choose.

There is also a third party app Witch that gives a list of windows to select

I do like the right click. I wish there will be available list of all apps windows of all running applications at all times somewhere on the screen – Radek Jul 7 '10 at 0:31
Witch will provide that list – Mark Jul 8 '10 at 0:14
