when i visit the youtube and some other video websites and scroll the pages, the flash player would just mess up with the firefox interface. And i'm pretty sure that has something to do with the aero transparent effects. Does anyone has the same problem?

I am on a mac and I just upgraded to Firefox 4 Beta 7 today through the update tool from the help menu and restarted both my computer and firefox afterward. Now flash videos do not work on any site and games do not load on facebook. They worked in Beta 6. I tried reinstalling flash from adobe's site and restarting the browser, but the problem is still happening. How do I fix it?

When customising toolbars I clicked "Restore Default Set". The reload/stop button was removed from the address bar. Not only can I not seem to get it back there, now I don't even have a smart button, only separate Stop and Reload buttons.

Occasionally, when I have multiple windows open with multiple tabs in the windows and I switch between a window or tab, the Firefox window flashes for several seconds. After the window flashes, I am sometimes taken to the correct tab or, sometimes to a different (incorrect) tab on the other window. Also, sometimes when this happens, the entries in the Window menu take the same name (for example, if it were to happen now, I would have two windows named 'Submit Feedback' in the Window menu).

When I mouse over a hyperlink on a page in 4.0, I can no longer view the URL address in a narrow horizontal bar at the bottom of the page, nor view the "load progress" of the URL when I click on it ... which I could formerly see in the same narrow bar.

In Firefox 3.6 and previous, I could always view the URL of an embedded hyperlink by mousing over the link and checking a narrow horizontal field at the bottom of the web… (read more)

In Firefox 3.6 and previous, I could always view the URL of an embedded hyperlink by mousing over the link and checking a narrow horizontal field at the bottom of the web page. When clicked on, that hyperlink would begin loading the desired page, and I could watch as Firefox logged on to the remote server ... at least to the extent of knowing that the server had been contacted and that the page was loading. It's like "flying blind" now -- I can't view either of those things.

I'm not sure yet, but I think I like the disappearance of the status bar in 4.0b7. However, there is an unintended side effect that is problematic. Now when I have FF fullscreen, if I select text with the mouse, there is no zone on the screen where I can move the mouse to cause the viewport to scroll downwards while I am selecting.

As a workaround I can push the down arrow while I am selecting, but this is not quite as handy as the old behavior. If you decide to keep the status bar vanished, I suggest defining a zone at the bottom of the window (at least when fullscreen) that will cause the viewport to scroll downward while the cursor is in that zone.

Thanks!

I have Firefox 4 Beta 7 version. There are many addons which are not supported and hence disabled. But a few of them (Power Twitter, FlashGot, DownloadHelper to name a few) are supported, but I don't find them anywhere in the browser, as in the previous versions. I need to get back my addons, plus I need to know where they are. Please help.

I've totally tricked out my Firefox 4's appearance like this. Did it with a bunch of addons and about 4-5 Stylish styles (note: The add-on bar auto-hides).

Problem is, when I start the browsers, sometimes the settings seem to have changed: the bookmarks go back to the bookmarks bar, the awesomebar goes beside the navigation and home buttons, tabs go bottom, and worst of all, going to customize shows all the add-on buttons missing, like the StumbleUpon one in the upper-right.

I've saved a copy of the localstore.rdf with the settings I want, and whenever the above problem happens, I overwrite it. If it happens again, I double-overwrite the file and it gets ironed out. Thing is, I don't know when the problem is going to come up, and what, if anything, is causing it.

I'd like it if the settings in the localstore.rdf were frozen and didn't change unless I specifically made any changes to it (from Firefox). Any ideas? I tried read-onlying the file while using Firefox, but it seemed to remove the read-only tag when I checked it later. Will try it again if anyone thinks it works.

I am having trouble accessing Internet sites--especially if I want to move from a downloaded site to a link within it. All I get when seeking to dowload is a blank page and the word Done at the sceeen's foot.

There is also some kind of message in the tool bar referring to 'gif' What can I do to improve this?

I have downloaded the Beta 4 version in the hope that it might have resolved this issue, but the same thing occurs.

Any help gratefully received. Des Evans
