Locking this "beta" thread. Firefox 22 was released yesterday.


I have a Windows 8 laptop on the Beta channel. I updated to Firefox 22 Beta yesterday and noticed that the Roboform toolbox was missing. I reinstalled Roboform, just to make sure, but it was not present in the browser windows, nor is it on the Toolbar menu. It does show as an installed add-in, and the toolbar is present in I.E. 10 and Chrome.

Before the update, I was able to use Stylish to get this functionality. However, something is broken with how -moz-box-ordinal-group functions. The only valid entries are 0 (places it above the Menu Bar) or !0 (places it at the very bottom).

Neither of those two places are what I desire. Here is what I'm aiming for, from top to bottom:

Menu Bar
Bookmarks Toolbar
Tabs
Address Bar

See this Stylish for a picture of what I used to have:
http://userstyles.org/styles/46274/firefox-4-bookmarks-toolbar-above-tabs-enhanced

So, my question here is, how can I restore this functionality? Having bookmarks below the address bar does not follow logic, in my mind. And this "now things are easy to customize how you want it!" thing that Australis is supposed to allow... doesn't let me customize it how I want it.

Any help would be appreciated, be it a config setting, a plugin, or some CSS I can plug into Stylish.

Today, I noticed an advertisement on a page I visited. This advertisement was labelled "Download Keeper" and showed a few pictures with products and prices in dollars. I didn't expect such advertisements on the site in question and so I looked more closely at it. In the mark-up, I find a lot of elements containing classes starting with SF_ like SF_IIAD_EXPL and url's starting with http://www.superfish.com. Also, some javascript files are loaded from http://rvzr-a.akamaihd.net. Then, I looked at my add-ons and found 4 suspicious ones: DDoowload keeper 1.6 DoWnlOad KeeEper 1.6 Download keeper 1.6 DownnlOadd KeepEr 1.6 How could these have come here? I certainly didn't add them intentionally. Will they have come in with some software installer? Is there some way I can prevent these types of add-ons to be installed?

There is right now literally no obvious way to bookmark a page. This is a serious flaw in the browser.

The Forum instructions say to restore it from "Customize." But it's not there, just the bookmark menu button, which does not allow you to bookmark a page. It then says restore defaults. That doesn't restore the star either. Does anyone know how to get it back once it's gone? It should not be so difficult that I can't figure it out.

Yahoo Mail is asking me to add an application (a Yahoo Mail app) for "mailto" links. I don't want it. Closing the notification works for as long a refresh, which means I'd be forever closing the notification, thus I want to disable the notification in about:config but what exactly do I need to disable?

Update. Here is someone with a similar problem: http://superuser.com/questions/363827/how-can-i-disable-add-application-for-mailto-links-bar-in-firefox

There's a single tab and a plus sign next to it in 23. I thought we had the ability to turn that off.

While I'm here, I'll also say that for a while now it's been weird, opening a new window flashes open for a moment and then flips back to my original window. It makes multi window browsing difficult, sometimes.

Before you ask, no, I never use tabs. I detest tabs.

I would like at least consider switching away from Google Chrome but one of the features missing is a session manager.

In Chrome, I have one window open with my personal accounts logged in and another window in a separate profile (no conflicting cookies, etc.) with my work accounts. I'm not about to start making special shortcuts to send arguments when opening FireFox to force the browser to open with a certain profile. Is there any progress down the pipeline to add this feature with some sort of GUI manager? (It seems like this would have done the trick, but it's incompatible and Experimental https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/profileswitcher/ with the latest update).

I'm glad you guys made an update where the browser is faster on many websites but missing features like this won't bring back people like me to your browser yet. I would like to consider switching, but I'm still surprised this has not been added.

I woke up this morning to find that firefox updated without my permission. this annoys me. What annoys me the most, however, is not having to re-customize every thing on the toolbar, but the fact that there is NO REFRESH BUTTON. I liked having a refresh button. it was very handy. I liked having it to the left of my address bar. Why can I no longer have a refresh button to the left of the address bar? the only one I can seem to find in imbedded in a very awkward and inconvenient place inside the address bar. I feel this is unacceptable. When looking at the page made to advertize firefox, it stats that it was "Made with a mission to put you first." this is not putting me first. this is taking control away from me and making the interface that much less intuitive. I would like to have my refresh button back. I do not want to have to go through antoher workaround like downloading a classic theme and screwing with that. I just want the refresh button. now, where is the refresh button and how can I place it where I want it to go? it's a simple question, yet I have not found any answer for it anywhere on this site.
