I don't have Tools and options with all that cutesy c*** like FF used to have. FF4 has two different option bars under Orange Firefox drop down menu box and another options drop down menu box from options. So how the Hell do I save a browsing session? Then how do I reopen it? Can I set this thing to reopen last browsing session tabs like normal browsers do? And can I get through this stuff without having the damned thing crash every 5 minutes? Thanks- keimanzero

I tried looking for any option in the tools, but did not find any.

Please help.

On Hotmail.com, any attachment forces FF to blink or reload every 2 or 3 seconds, rendering the site unusable.

I recently upgraded to 4.0b to use the mobile features. When I try to retrieve my mail on Hotmail.com, if there is an attachment, the page.....particularly the attachment blinks or seems to reload ever 2 or 3 seconds, rendering the page unusable. With some effort, I am able to close the session. To get my Hotmail, I am forced to open an older version of Firefox which, as always works just fine. I have followed the instructions in "help" and I have cleared the history but it didn't resolve the problem. I have had no other problems with 4.0b

I'm not sure how it got onto to my system, but I've had a pop-up called "ask Jeeves" everytime I've logged onto Firefox 4 Beta. I want my "AOL" homepage. I keep trying to put it in the "house box and that seems to work, but I don't want to have to open firefox and be recieved by a load of advertising, it's certainly not a Google search engine and is full of adverts. I have "adblock plus, and for the most part it seems to solve all the issues about unwanted pop-ups. Has anyone any ideas? I'd much appreciate it, thanks to you all.

Address bar getting jumbled up with previously typed URLs

About 2 days ago the address bar started acting up. If i'm already visiting a website, and want to type in a new address, the current URL doesn't disappear from the bar, so i have to type over it, which in turn makes it completely jumbled and unreadable.

So basically it doesn't erase the current URL from the address bar when attempting to type a new one, and instead it overlaps it, making the letters blurry and distorted.

Flash only works in Firefox 4 beta 11 when I put it in 32-bit mode. I have never been able to get it to work under normal conditions. I have uninstalled every other plug-in and re-installed flash and the results are the same.

Not only does flash not work for beta 11, but flash has never worked for any previous version of Firefox 4 beta under default settings. After searching through Firefox support forums, I have found this to be true for many other users, as well.

Has anyone discovered the cause of this problem?

After further research, I feel this should be categorized as a plugin issue...

Firebug 1.7X A10 causes two Title bars (the standard windows bar, and a second just inside with the new orange Firefox tab...both with minimize/maximize/close buttons), plus other odd behavior listed below:

Any saved tabs from before the install/enable are gone. Choosing Addons from the menu does nothing. After opening a new empty tab the Addons manager does load. Choosing Feedback->Makes me xxxx, does nothing. Hitting reload button does nothing URL bar (page address) stays the same between tabs (though the loaded page changes) Firebug addon works fine.

After getting to the Addon Manager (this took a bit of work to do), and disabling Firebug, all problems disappeared. My previous tab history also returned.

This seems to be unique to WinXP. I have installed this Firebug version with Win7 successfully.
