When I use Fedora 16, I found for a program only one instanse can be started. Only one Firefox can be started, only one gedit can be started. That's OK, but only one terminal can be started, that seems unconvinient to me. How can I start more than one instances for a program? Thank you!

This shortcut will open a new terminal window:

Shift+ctrl+N

This will open a new terminal tab:

Shift+ctrl+T

For mouse/click lovers also going to the file menu in the terminal menu bar will give similar options.

Can you check if right-clicking the Firefox or Terminal icons shows the option "New Window"? This will open a new instance of the program, but I'm not sure if it is part of Gnome 3.2 (F17) or only in Gnome 3.4 (F17).

Press your winkey. Type the word "keyboard".
Under the "Keyboard Shortcuts" tab, click the '+' for custom shortcut.
Name it "Terminal". The command is gnome-terminal. I used <ctrl>+<alt>+T to launch it.
