The font-rendering in Firefox 4 RC doesn't look quite right; the fonts are too light and seem a bit blurry. With hardware acceleration disabled, they look much better, but I'd rather not disable hardware acceleration if possible since I would lose out on the benefits of it. Here are some comparisons: Internet explorer and Firefox 4 RC font-rendering and Firefox 3.6.15 and Firefox 4 RC font-rendering You can also see how the spacing is a bit odd with Firefox 4 RC.

This is on Windows 7 SP1 64-bit with a Radeon HD5850 (latest drivers) if it makes any difference.

Is my only option to disable hardware acceleration?

In FF 3.x two commands: "open in window" and "open in new tab" have got just this order. But - I don't know why - in FF 4.x the order is reversed. Every time when I click right button of my mouse and select the second option - where in FF 3.x I've got "open in new tab" I can see web site in a new window, not in a new tab.

How can I change it? I tried editor menu and I edited userchrome.css, but it's not working or I don't know how to change it. Without it I must uninstall FF 4.x because it's unusable.

After installing 4.0b5 i noticed that the Add A New Tab button is moved all the way to the right (right next to the panorama button) and is not right after the last opened tab. After opening enough tabs to fill out my url bar the Add A New Tab button suddenly went in a position that was right after the last opened tab. That effect lasted until i closed Firefox, after what the Add A New Tab button was again at the far right. Is this how it suppose to work or is it a bug ? Since i would do anything to have the Add A New Tab button right after my last opened tab is there a way to make it stay right after the last opened tab or ill have to wait for a another version ?

I didn't notice this issue with earlier betas of FF 4 so I guess the problem came up when I upgraded from version FF 4.0 Beta 4 to Beta 5. I don't have this problem on Chrome 7.0.517.0 dev or IE 8.

Just an FYI: My video card is an XFX Radeon HD 5850 running the ATI Catalyst version 10.8 driver.

How do I change the minimum tab width in 4.0b6? Having tabs 140px wide is painful.

We (the users) used to have "browser.tabs.tabMinWidth" working in about:config but now it is not working anymore. Setting browser.tabs.tabMinWidth to zero let us have tabs showing only the icon, allowing for a lot of tabs being visible at the same time for fast navigation.

Having to load an addon to change tab width (assuming such an addon can even do that now) seems counterproductive.

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?

Address bar and search bar are too large in Firefox 4.12 Beta. I can make one of them smaller but it makes the other one larger to refill the space. Any way to make them both smaller so I can acquire a little more real estate to add one or two more icons? I'm already using "small icons" in the "customize" section. Also, can I move the "home" icon to the left of the address bar since I use it regularly?

How do I make the toolbars smaller? Since upgrading to the latest version, they are twice as tall as they used to be. The text in them is still a reasonable size but the toolbars take up twice the vertical space they used to. This has nothing to do with the size of the page I'm viewing so Ctrl+ or Ctgrl- has no effect.

Thanks for any help. Attached is a screen shot showing the wasted space at the top of my screen with the new toolbars.

Just installed FF 4RC1 on Win 7; nice, and seems much faster. One minor thing has me a bit perplexed: I'm missing the small "+" tabs at the end of each tab that are used to open a new tab. I just have the "new tab" icon on the toolbar. I installed also on my wife's Win 7 computer and the small "+" tabs are shown on hers. Can't seem to find an option that would control this. Anyone know the answer to this little puzzle?

Firefox has updated its browser. I am currently working on the updated ESR channel (I need to use Java) version 60.2. Now when I want to bookmark a page and click on the blue star I cannot see my entire list of folders in order to sort the page into the right place. I know they are still there because I can see them when I click "Bookmarks" at the top of the page but the functionality isn't there. I searched for an answer but nothing seems to fit my situation. Thanks.

So far the Firefox upgrades are nothing but trouble to me and my computer. Where is the homepage. Why when I open Firefox from the desktop shortcut do I not get a homepage, but rather the last page I visited. I was doing bills, and finished but couldn't find the log off button, so closed the page, and then closed firefox. When I re-opened, it opened right to the page where I was still signed into my account!!!!!!! A security failure if I ever saw one. There is not one thing I have found to be helpful since Firefox first updated me to 3.6.14, then quit responding completely! So I tried the 4 Beta, and it is so far a disaster.

Privacy and security setting require too much time and too much to have to learn just secure access to the Internet? Why don't you get it? Firefox users need to have default suites of security setting from which to choose. Examples: Maximum Security: High Security: Medium Security: Low security: Roll my own by picking and choosing.

Clicking on any of these security categories should list what is included and maybe an option to change something.

Once an option is chosen, subsequent changes and updates to features within that option should be automated and a 'What's new/changed in the chosen security category be added within security updates emails.

As it is I have to spend hours figuring what alll this stuff means just to get security internet acces via a Firefox - not that other are better.
