Love the new apps tab but how do I make them permanent? When I get them set up I go to tools-options-general-use current pages. However when i restart firefox, the app tabs are gone and the program starts with some generic firefox home page (not my custom set-up which is I-Google, gmail, weather, facebook and business mail account). I'm running window 7 ultimate on my desktop and windows 7 home premium on my laptop. I'm using a hardwire T-1 cable connection to the internet. My ISP is AT&T.

Tabs are not working properly, when I open a Tab up I get blank screen and when I select a site from Bookmarks it loads on the first tab instead of the tab I opened up. and when I click the X to close the Tabs I opened it won't close. and everything else ceases to work. I can't open Feedback to submit feedback about this bug, nor can I access Add-Ons to see whats Enabled and what's not.

I should of stuck with Beta 4.0.2 instead of upgrading to Beta 4.0.3 because everything was working fine then until this new update destroyed Firefox. I'm going to have to use another browser until this is fixed, because I can't use a browser like this. There's just too many bugs now. :/

I'm using FF 3.6.8. When I open a web page I need to use the zoom out feature on each page to get the full page to display on my screen. Generally, two clicks on the mouse wheel, holding the control key, does it. How do I get this page size setting permanent on FF so I don't have to re-size when I open a page?

Also, the contrast is now horrible so I can't read certain boxes on web pages such as the one below this box where it says This Happened. It is all black

My download speed with the current version of Firefox has been between 165 and 250 Kbs. I installed 4.0 Beta 3 and the download speeds remained the same. I am running Windows 7. I had Verizon check my DSL lines and they tested 1.2 Gbs download and 0.75 Gbs upload. I even had a tech come out to verify we had no line problems.

The downloads are so slow that I often can not get a YouTube video to run without stuttering.

I have ESET Anti-Virus and firewall.
