Can you attach a screenshot?

Use a compressed image type like PNG or JPG to save the screenshot and make sure that you do not exceed the maximum file size (1 MB).

Hi cor-el,

here are two screenshots of my problem (FF5 and a Seamonkey screenshot which looks like what I try to do on FF5).

The key point for me is that on FF4/5, I always miss the first tab as for me it looks like more or less "hidden" in the bookmark panel, even weeks after upgrading my ff3.6.

thanks for your help

Sorry. You can't change that behavior in Firefox AFAIK.

I always have my bookmarks open on the left of my screen (ctrl + b) and I hate that the new version has the tabs all the way to the left.

As a work around, I added as many "space" buttons as necessary to push the tabs over to line up with the edge of my window.

Just right click in the grey area to customize tool bars to drag & drop "space" sections to the left of the tabs. Hope that helps you.  :) Starr
