In the new version of the Developer Edition the options "close tabs to the right" and "close other tabs" are in a sub-menu named "Close Multiple Tabs" inside the context menu. Is there's a way to change this so that they will appear directly in the main context menu? I use "close tabs to the right" often and I find this very annoying.

Since I updated to 77.0.1 firefox has for unknown reason has concluded that there is a system administrator which has disabled updates. It says so in setting (topleft) and in about firefox (instead of update button). I have been able to change all other settings that I know of. I have also refreshed the browser once, disabled all addons once, and deinstalled it to reinstall the latest version once.

Is there a solution for this bug?

When I try to checkout on a site using Shopify, the credit card fields are unusable. The form fields turn into animations, almost like an animated GIF and will not stop. It is difficult to describe what is going on. Here's what it looks like:https://i.imgur.com/mTJfDeD.mp4. I don't know how else to illustrate the issue. This has been going on for the past several versions of Firefox. I'm currently using 79.0b3 (64-bit) on a Mac.

I updated to Firefox 5, under the help button in the browser "about Firefox" shows the new version, but my shortcut buttons on my monitor still show "Firefox 4.0 Beta 10". Most updates also update the shortcut buttons. Is there a way I can do this?

When I select the "New Window" button or "Open in New Window" from the context menu, a new Firefox window opens - however, the toolbars are completely different from the original open window. Specifically, the URL location bar is missing.

I can add it back, but the change then modifies my original toolbar setup.

More bad behavior: Even if I modify the new window back to the way I wanted it, new windows opened from that window revert back to the modified version, with no location toolbar.

Can I disable the resubmit when I hit the back button

After submitting a form (say a search form) and then clicking on a link on the results ("action") page I wish to go back to the form page and change the form criteria. However, when I hit the back button Firefox always wants to re-post the form data before I can go back any further in the history. Very clunky. Is there a way to prevent this re-post and just have it open the cached page?

Google Chrome does this nicely by just displaying a page in lieu of the form's "action" page that gives you the option to re-submit or you can simply click back to go back to the form page. I don't think Firefox should force you to resubmit a form if you are just trying to navigate backwards through your history.

I used to get around this by using the split back button to choose the form page directly, but the FF4/FF5 default navigation buttons don't have this any longer (that I can find anyway).

Is there an about:config setting that will prevent this forced re-submit?

I was a beta tester for Firefox 4, but I want to stay with stable releases that are compatible with my plugins for now. Each time I start Firefox 4.01, it pompts me to update to beta 5.0, which it refers to as an important security and stability update. I believe 4.01 is the most up-to-date general release, and I'd like Firefox to stop prompting me to update to a beta.

From time to time the personal security code entry matrix on my online bank's website will not accept all of my code's 6 digits. I can't remember now whether this was happening before I installed version 4.0 or whether it started then. The point is it hasn't always been a problem.

I've only just installed version 5.0 so have not had the time to see whether it has inherited the same glitch.

I do not have this problem with Safari.

My bank, Société Générale, tell me that other Firefox users are experiencing the same problem, but can offer no help other than to observe that it is clearly a Firefox problem.
