I have disabled all extentions, add-ons, started up in Safe Mode or tried any other suggestions placed on the forum, but still, tabs are not saved.

I don't find a "enable" or "disable Save Tabs" in the preferences

As suggested, in the profile folder I have renamed the formhistory.sqlite to formhistory.sqlite.bak and sessionstore.js to sessionstore.js.bak

No saving of Tabs. Any suggestion? Tkx Yve

The reload circle goes and stops and goes and stops when I open email on Hotmail site. Photos in emails flash (appear-disappear-reload, etc., endlessly). All worked perfectly this morning, and then this afternoon new version installed, and now it's so messed up as to be unusable on that site. No problem in IE8. Disabled ABP, and it's not causing the problem (although I did send them a report).

Is there a fix for this?

It's great that the menu can now be displayed in the tab bar with tabs-on-top, but it would be even better if the titlebar itself could be hidden! I believe this is already the case on FF4/Windows 7. Maybe I have just not discovered how to turn on this feature?

Firefox 4 is using 100% CPU after a few minutes of browsing. It will not go away, even if you close all tabs containing Java/Flash content. The only solution is completely close the browser and re-open it but it doesn't take long for the problem to reappear. My problem is a little different than others, I don't suffer a performance hit but my fan goes into overdrive and it's using 100% of (1) core of the CPU. I can't specifically tie it to any particular Plug-in or Add-on, but can say it's happening every time I use the browser. The only solution I've found is to disable Hardware Acceleration. This is a bit disheartening, since it's a very important feature to the new browser. This happens on my MacBook Pro 13" late-2009 model, but I haven't tested it on my PC yet. I updated Java and Flash to be sure I had the latest versions. Running out of ideas... hoping someone could offer some help?

This is driving me nuts having to log back in to every site every time I close FF. I also lose 'preferences' like turning off Google instant/safesurf (resets to on/moderate every time). I have tried clearing all private data then closing FF then deleting the cookies.sqlite file, and it is still happening. Anyone have any other suggestions?

Since updating from FF4b9 to beta10, FF does not ask anymore whether to save open tabs on exit. It simply closes at once and does not restore my tabs at the next start. Is there a change of behavior or some setting, which changed its default or is this simply a bug in beta10? All FF4 versions up to Beta9 worked fine.

Over the last few weeks of having to reinstall my OS, I've had major problems getting Firefox Sync to do its thing and synchronise a couple of years worth of data. After a few minutes, I am receiving the following error at the bottom of the page: "Sync encountered an error while synchronising: Unknown error. Sync will automatically retry this action." Which is not particularly helpful in solving the problem!

As there are no tools provided to edit data "in the cloud", there is also no way I can see to remedy this by deleting any corrupt entries. Which does not seem very promising option to me for backing up this data, some of which is very important!

Firstly, I was wondering if anyone else has been receiving this error? And secondly, I was wondering if there was any way of manually downloading the data outside of Firefox if there isn't a remedy? I would really not like to use the nuclear option and reset my account. If it is possible to get it back then I'll be able to make a safe backup and transfer my information to xmarks, which I have found is more reliable. I guess you could argue I should be making backups like these in the first place if this information is so important, but I trusted the convenience and reliability of Mozilla to handle my data, especially as before Weave came along I had never realised how valuable keeping my history between computers can be!

I am having this problem between Mac, Ubuntu and Windows versions of Firefox 4. Hope you can understand my frustrations.

The address bar on my Lenovo notebook running Windows 7 in Firefox 4 never displays the address of the website I am visiting. If I type in an address the address stays as I typed it no matter what page I visit and the other open tabs always display the typed address.

Forward and back buttons do not function, backspace does work for page back.

I want to stop it going to OpenDNS when I type a word in the url area. I want it to go to Google.

I have changed the keyword.URL to http://www.google.com.my/search?q=

But this only works for terms with a space in it. For example: Typing: "word1 word2" will go to Google Typing: "word" Goes to OpenDNS

Furthermore... If I type in "eBay" it will take me to eBay.com (as I would expect) but if I type in another site like "tip20" it goes to OpenDNS.

How do I fix this once and for all.

Per the subject line. Before my last system reboot, Panorama was fine. Now the feature is gone -- along with all the open tabs represented by the other Panorama groups I had!

I only just noticed the change, but perhaps it happened earlier, after reboot, when Firefox updated itself. But I could be wrong about the precise timing and, in fact, I think I HAVE used it since the last reboot.

Honestly can't think of anything I've done to cause it to go. Exiting and restating FF doesn't restore it. Good feature, miss it badly. And the open tabs that were lost!
