My search bar has never worked. Not when I had Firefox 3... and not now. I had to add a google toobar, in order to be able to search. This made Firefox very wide and ugly looking. I didn't like it and so I don't want to add it again, now that I have Firefox 4. Please help! I go to add search engines, but they just don't appear when I add them. Why is this?

Where can I find FAQ on using tab groups in Panorama? Mine seems very buggie to the point where it seems pointless.

When right-clicking on tab, the Move to Group --> always shows New Group even though I've named that group (ie., FireFox Support). The tab also remains visible on main… (read more)

When right-clicking on tab, the Move to Group --> always shows New Group even though I've named that group (ie., FireFox Support). The tab also remains visible on main screen even though its content is also showing in the group. Is this how it's meant to be or is my version not displaying properly?

Is there also a method of forcing the apps tabs to refresh automatically so they stay current? I have tabs for Facebook and Twitter, and would like those to refresh so I can see if there are waiting notifications.

I must add that I'm brilliantly pleased with this new version of FF. Fast, clean and impressive. I do wish there were user manuals for those of us who prefer knowing what we're doing rather than flying blind.

Thanks in advance for your assistance.

Hi,

I'm sure in 3.n I right clicked on a bookmark to choose whether to open it in a new window or a new tab, or to flick through a number of bookmarks to open two or three at once. In 4.Beta when I right click a bookmark I don't get an option to open it in another window or new tab. I don't get an option to open it at all.

Was this removed deliberately? & if so why? Seems a wierd thing to take out.

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...

The Google Search Bar in the top right corner no longer contains the Google Search Engine. I tried adding it by going to Google.com but when I tried to add it, it didn't recognise anything to add. I also tried going through the list of Search Engines provided by Firefox but there are so many different ones created by so many different people, I had no idea which one to choose.
