I just installed Mozilla Firefox and am going through a tutorial that states that one of the nice features is the + button in the tab bar. I don't have a plus button and cannot figure out how to make that happen. I can add a new tab, but it still doesn't give me the plus button, which I would like to have.

I would like Firefox to simply quit when I shut down the machine. I don't much care whether it saves my context or not, I just don't want it to generate a prompt that delays the shut down. I saw the settings that are required for the prompt to appear, and I don't want to change them just to make the prompt not appear.

Firefox will not start after upgrade from 3.0.1

I have Firefox 3.0.1. I would like to upgrade to 3.6, but if I try to upgrade to any version, I cannot open Firefox. It is not like the other "Will not start" problems, because in the Task Manager, firefox.exe pops up, then goes away instantly. I have tried using Safe Mode, doing a clean install by uninstalling Firefox and my profile, cleaning the registry, then using CCleaner, then trying to reinstall, but the problem persists. Sometimes firefox.exe doesn't even show up in the Task Manager. I also cannot use any version of IE(even if I wanted to), Safari or Chrome. They all have the same results. I suspect that it is not a problem with Firefox, but with my computer, but I don't what is wrong. Can anyone help me?

I have followed all of firefox's steps for enabling java in the preferences dropdown. I can provide more details if you need them.

I open a new Microsoft Word Document and it immediately minimizes to the task bar at the bottom of the screen. When I go to maximize the document, it "disappears" immediately to the left going off the screen. I am having the same problems with emails when I try to forward or create new emails. They will not hold long enough for me to write on them - they disappear off the screen.
