As I say, the online help files refer to an "Organize Bookmarks" option, which no longer exists, as far as I can see. I know a lot of "research" went into the Firefox upgrade, and I certainly wouldn't wish to seem unappreciative, but...


Thanks for any help anyone can give.

My opened windows were saved before so I didn't have to open all of them every time I use the computer, but they are always gone now when I start every day, so I have to go to the History and start looking for whatever I was working on the previous day. Since I normally have more than one window opened , it is really a pain. Why was the save and quit taken out of Firefox 4? It is really needed!

The version worked fine so far, but I am just not pleased with the layout and would rather switch back to the latest 3 version. My online MBA Program can work in IE sometimes (perish the thought), but it is optimized for firefox. That is what led me here and I have been devout ever since.

In the past, I used to have an auto complete function that would take me to a website even if I didn't type the entire URL.

For example, just typing "you" in the address bar would take me to youtube without any extra searching or clicking.

I know currently the "awesome bar" is similar and shows the url, but that still needs me to click and search.

I have to use Safe Mode to make changes to Options since updating to 4.0.1

Since installing 4.0.1 from 3.7.16 I have noticed all the Options check marks are missing and the only way it seems to change the settings in Options is to use Safe Mode where the check marks become visible. The same thing is occurring with the preferences of some of the add-ons as well. I would guess some kind of Config. problem. Some feedback to address this issue would be greatly appreciated. Although version 4 is faster I'm already missing the older version that worked with no major bugs and am seriously considering either installing the older version or changing browsers.

I look at a picture from a photo-site - size 11 MB. I decide to save this picture > right click > save image as.. The download window opens and FF downloads the picture once more which is already somewhere in FF's cache or memory.. I can see that data comes from the internet and not from a local place on my computer and the process can be rather slow, when the remote server is slow.. I find this as a waste of bandwidth.. Is it possible to avoid this behaviour?

I ran into this when working in gaiaonline.com on Firefox 3.6, I believe it was .6. It could have been a later version. But it was 3 for sure. I was signed into one profile on one window, and my sister was signed in to hers on a different window of Firefox at the same time. I was wondering if there was a way to achieve this on Firefox 4.

In an earlier version of Firefox, if I right-clicked on a hyperlink, I would get a right-click menu that included the Properties item, which, when I click on it, would pop up a window that would give me the URL of the hyperlink, before I clicked on it. I could also copy that URL. I've installed a new version, and that right-click menu is gone, replaced by a lot of FlashGot choices, and also a Save As.. and Save for the link, neither of which actually tell me what the address is..

When I typed in a word, for ex, "space", originally FF would take me to "google search" with all the options for "space" in that search. Suddenly, "yahoo search" butted in and my searches are redirected to that place. I went through the forums etc. They had suggested "about:config", "keyword.url". Then right clicking and setting on "reset". Well, when I do that, my "reset" function is not available. It is faded. Then, I right click on "modify", and type in the one search option for google available in forums etc:

"http://www.google.com/ig?ie=UTF-8&oe=UTF-8&hl=en&aig=0&reason=1"

From here on, when I go to awesome bar and type in "space", it does not take me to that "google search" page, but it takes me either to my own "igoogle" page, or if I sign out of igoogle, it takes me to a regular google home page.

Then, I want what I searched for to be in the google's or igoogle's search box with all the "google" search results available. '''But the search box is empty.

What to do now?

I hope that I am clear about the issue. This I could not find in the forums/help pages.

Thank you for your help.

ps. Vista, Newest updated version of FF (4).
