As an avid user of Firefox, I love the ability of using the add-ons, that is till you started pushing v4 and now v5. Most of the add-ons I use are NOT yet available, and that is a shame. I love the feel of v3.6.17, and unless the add-ons I've come to rely on and love make their way to future versions, you'll cut your own success, as I and others like me, will have NO use of a browser without our loved add-ons. I urge others who see my point, to bring it to your attention (in massive numbers), Mindblower!

On the previous version - 3.6.17, the Navigation Toolbar has arrows to go back one page, go forward one page, and a drop down tab for recent pages. The new version leaves out the drop down tab. I use it constantly. But since it is not there, I went back to the previous version. Any way this can be fixed?

I use both Themes and Personas. I'm talking about themes. My present FireFox version is 3.6.17. I'm very happy with some four years of use now! But I really would be frustrated if most of my themes disappeared!

I did a backup using MozBackup, so if FF4 drives me crazy like some reviews I've read. I hope the backup would work.... I'm still hesitant about the upgrade. I can deal with the new features of FF4 well enough but don't want to lose my Themes... I like to decorate! Any help would be greatly appreciated. You can email at My Email

Thank you!

I had wine spilled on my old computer and it no longer works but I was able to transfer all of my files and information onto an external hard drive after. Is it possible to find and transfer my bookmarks to my new computer from the information I was able to save, or are they gone forever since I wasn't able to make manual backups?

I have FF (ver 3.6.17) open and when I click on the "+" on the far right most tab to open a new tab (the tool tip even says "Open a new tab"), nothing happens. I click on File, New Tab and nothing happens. I opened up a new browser window, clicked on the tab next to the currently opened tab and nothing happens. I've clicked Tools, Clear Recent History, Everything. I've restarted the PC. Nothing seems to work. This only started being a problem a couple days ago. Any idea what could be wrong?

I tried to upgrade Firefox from 3.6.7 to Firefox 4.01 but when the update is complete, the browser is not displaying correctly e.g. there is no address bar. Here is a screenshot: http://i.imgur.com/zBujK.jpg.

I downgraded to 3.6.17 and then installed Firefox 4.01 again but this does not solve the problem, nor does exiting the browser and entering it again, or restarting the computer.

Re my Acer XP: How do I know if I've installed Firefox 4? I've gone through the motions three times and have not been told I was successful. When I look at "About Firefox" I'm told I still have version 3.6. What gives

That's pretty much it. If you need more information I'll need some guidance from you, such as specific questions. Thanks.
