Firefox4 Tabs and Bookmarks: work around for unhappy users

more options

I have read the explanations of ease of use by dropping the bookmarks bar and moving the tabs to the top. If that works for some then great. The nice thing about personal settings, is that they need to be for ease of use to the individual. When I follow this advice; "How do I put tabs back on bottom like they used to be?

At the top of the Firefox window, click on the Firefox button, go over to the Options... arrow and uncheck Tabs on Top. "

First, I cannot find a Firefox button, so I right click in the blank area to get options. Then I check the bookmarks bar and uncheck the tabs on top. That works until I shut off my computer. And then I have to do it all over again when I reboot.

Can I get the permanent option for these choices?

Chosen solution

Create a new profile as a test to check if your current profile is causing the problems. See:

There may be extensions and plugins installed by default in a new profile, so check that in "Tools > Add-ons > Extensions & Plugins"

If that new profile works then you can transfer some files from the old profile to that new profile (be careful not to copy corrupted files)

Yes, I found that before and I should have mentioned it. If that worked before this version, it does not work with this particular trouble in Firefox 4.
