Ok, let's see if I get your point: left click on the minimization
button minimizes to tray, instead of the main part of the toolbar;
right click opens a drop down.  I don't find that surprising because I
have a number of applications, mainly utilities and email-related apps,
that respond that way.  It's become common over the years, sometimes
with a setting that gives users a choice.  It's the 'major' apps like
browsers and MS Office that have stuck with minimizing to the toolbar
on a left click.  Have I understood correctly?
