shortcut to minimize todoist popup in gmail/firefox?

I was wondering if there is a keyboard shortcut (or some non-mouse-based way) to minimize and/or maximize the todoist popup window that sits in the lower right corner of the screen during gmail sessions? this would be especially useful after entering a task via the "add to todoist" button.

No, unfortunately there is no way to do this with the keyboard shortcuts at this time, mainly because Gmail itself has quite a bit of shortcuts that would cause issues.

Bummer! Well, if you all could figure out a workaround that would be awesome. Maybe it minimizes itself automatically after you're finished adding a task via the "add to todoist" button? Just a suggestion.

If you have a Mac you could use the (AMAZING) third-party software Keyboard Maestro to accomplish this like I just did. Attached is the image file of the macro I made to assign the hotkey of "⌘+Enter" to do both minimize & maximize of the Todoist box within Gmail.

I'm attaching two screenshots because I can't get the macro to all fit on screen at the same time.

There should really be an easier way to accomplish this, but this gets the job done.
