I have updated to firefox 4. Several plugins do not work such as McAfee Security but Windows Media Player plugin does not work. I have uninstalled firefox 4 and Media Player plugin. I reinstalled everything but the Media Player plugin failed again. The screen just remains blank. The blank screen occurs when testing Media Player using the Mozilla test link. I would like to go back to firefox 3.6 since I cannot use firefox 4 with all the problems but I cannot find any archived versions.

I have FF4 beta, this started since FF4 beta 7. I work on Windows 7 ultimate 64 bit.

The problem is that I can't see drop down menus unless they have alot of items, nor context menus (like highlighting a text then right-clicking it), auto fill bars don't show the auto fill info entered before .. the menu itself appears, kinda. but it's transparent and the I can't see the items, don't know where to click to select the thing I want.

I haven't got this problem before 4.0b7 .. after I got it, I thought it was one of the plugins, so I disabled them all but still have the problem!

An image describing the problem is here, taken now on this page, I highlighted a text, and right-clicked it: here you can see the menu is somehow appearing, surrounded by the red border, but I can't see it!

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?

I decided to upgrade to Firefox 4.0... now I cannot 1) figure how to get my tabs below the url line, 2) find a refresh button, and 3) get my status bar up at the bottom.

I've found a status bar addon, but it didn't work. I don't think I should be needing addons to make a browser work like it did before. These are not useful changes; these are just changes for change's sake...

I have two Computer Administrators on my Windows XP - Mozilla Firefox 4. Even before the 4 Version, this happened. While typing in one User Account, the screen would automatically switch to the other User Account, by itself. If I went to Answers.com, and asked a question, the answer would come back to my other User Account. I had this problem two years ago, and Comodo Geek Buddy fixed it, but didn't tell me how to do it. I no longer have them re: Funds. I asked Rogers Tech Support, and they claim 'this is impossible to happen'. So, I didn't get any help there. They tried Remote work on my computer, and still couldn't fix it. I even told them what to do to see what I mean by switching accounts by itself, and they wouldn't, as they repeatedly told me, 'this is impossible to happen'. Both of the two User Accounts involved are Computer Administrators. Could this be the problem? On second thought, I don't think so, as Geek Buddy was able to fix it, with the two Computer Administrators.

Thank you in advance. I upgraded to firefox 4, and since then I have had a problem. When opening a new tab I have chosen to be directed to google.com. In the past my cursor automatically went to the search bar on that page when I open a new tab. After upgrading the cursor just stays in the address bar, but I would like it to automatically move to the google search bar on the page. Does anyone know how to fix this? Thanks again.

I use the mouse wheel for scrolling on my desktop and the "middle" button in conjunction with the pointer nub on my laptop (lenovo W500 thinkpad) to simulate a mouse wheel. At the point in time I upgraded firefox to V4, this function quit working. I've tried it in IE and it still works there, and it still works in OpenOffiice.org swriter, so it isn't something changed in the hardware or OS (XP). Any suggestions?

My home page has a banner on the top, which includes tabs for support, web mail, contact us ,etc. The banner box is blank, but because I know where the tabs in the banner are I can still use them. I had the same problem on my old XP laptop. I also have it from time to time on my Vista PC.

Other symptoms along with this problem are, Yahoo mail will not load, and on Facebook I can't enter comments ( I can enter the comment , but it will not post when I hit enter.) I used to be able to exit Mozilla and reboot and it would go away for awhile on the other laptop and PC, but now I can't stop it from happening every time on this one. I have FF4, just d/l it, I allowed pop ups, all to no avail.

I have Norton 360 on all puters, along with System Mechanic, but this happened when I used Kaspersky and a different registry cleaner on the XP laptop only.

Naturally I have pop-up blocker functional but there is a new and really, really annoying "coupon" pop-up that is always on Amazon but also on other sites. Close the coupon window and it pops up every time I navigate to look at any product. It really is bad and vexingly doesn't even offer anything that the Amazon template doesn't already offer ("free shipping" above a certain expenditure on some items etc.). It has a distinctive green border and appears on other sites as well. How did they get around your software? How can I make this stop?

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?

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.

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?
