Yes, I can use the <ALT><TAB> to bring and cycle the applications, but
it was annoying everytime I have to cycle the applications. If I could
use the mouse to click the application on the panel, it saves me lot
of time.

I've never seen that kind of problem either in FC and Debian. I have
no clue what kind of the setting can be used to fix it, appreciate
anyone advice.

No the resolutions are not switchable.
