A crucial piece of security awareness does not work the same in 4.0b7. When hovering over a link, Chrome, Opera, and Firefox-3 all show the URL at the bottom left of the screen. But we cannot guard ourselves against phishing attacks in the same way with 4.0b7 because it puts the link's URL up in the Location Bar instead, where it gets truncated.

This "feature" appears to be undocumented; it is not mentioned in the Release Notes.

What config setting do I need to change to get the link's URL to show up down in the Status Bar again? (Or should I say Add-On Bar, since "Status Bar" no longer shows up under Menu -> View -> Toolbars.)

In previous betas of firefox on a mac, the three-finger scroll on the trackpad used to do full page up and full page down (as it does in other applications). In version 4 beta 7, for some reason the three touch trackpad action now opens the 'Firefox Group your Tabs' feature. I've searched in the preferences menu and can't see where to edit or fix this. Can anyone help?

Thanks

Alice,

Flash does work fine in Safari, so it seems to be just beta 7 that has this problem. I don't see any extensions that might be blocking flash (and haven't installed anything new between beta 6 and 7), but I will try a testing profile shortly.

Looking over the release notes, I don't see anything particularly specific to this. Possibly WebGL is interfering, or the new accelerated rendering that went in? I'm not sure how to go about checking if either of those caused the problem.

Normally, I can type the name of the website followed by ctrl+enter and I can access it right away. For example, after I type "google" into the address bar, I normally press ctrl+enter afterwards, and it would automatically become "www.google.com" in the address bar. If I do it now, nothing happens. Not only that, if I type the url and click enter, nothing happens either. Is there any way to solve this problem?

For now, the only way to browse is to press the go arrow to launch the web. The shortcut has malfunctioned.

All other letters and my desktop font is normal! Hmm, i recently reinstalled win7 x64, and maybe something is wrong with that :) But, my display drivers are up to date... I must say that font on most websites are pretty clean (not in Gmail), but their names in tabs and Menu bar is still kind of dimly. The text in the adress bar looks like it is in lower resolution - a little pixelated :)

I have tried to fix it by disabling nvidia 3d vision plugin and microsoft silverlight, but none does the trick...any other suggestions ?

thanks

To begin, I utterly despise the changes to the URL Bar and the removal of the Status bar. In order to stay with the latest version of Firefox I am attempting to recreate the look and feel as best I can.

I have already installed the Status-4-Evar extension. The only thing that remains is to remove the status information and the target URL from the bar.

Are there any settings in about:config that will allow me to make these changes?

EDIT: Status information can be removed by toggling. status4evar.statusInUrlBar. Still looking for a way to remove the target URL...

Hi,

I'm having a bit of a problem in Firefox 4.0b7

Some (=not all) of my bookmarks menus and folders are invisible, as well as the semi-automatic pre-typed texts or some contextual menus (e.g the "This happened" menu in this very page).

If I start in safe mode it works, but if I uninstall all addons and themes, I still have the issue.

Don't know what to try...

Here is a screenshot of the problem : Screenshot

This happens even in safe mode. It seems to be a default function that I don't like and can't figure out how to get rid of.

Whenever I start typing a search term, url, or whatever into the Location Bar/Url Bar/Awesome Bar (whatever you want to call it), everything works fine... Unless the term starts with "m". If it starts with "m", for some reason (and I can't find any documentation on this), the Bar decides to look at my open tabs and auto-fills with one of them. I don't want this function. I want to just have it put an "m" as if I were typing any other letter.

To be more clear: When I type a "g" in the Bar, this comes up (brackets mean highlighted): g[mail . com/]

When I type an "m" in the Bar, this happens (brackets means non-url text): [Switch to tab:]http://www. pandora. com/#/paused

(urls don't actually have spaces, obviously... just preventing links from being made) It's pretty annoying that I can't start terms with an "m"...
