I am using Firefox 4.0 Beta 2 on Vista Ultimate and the browser.tabs.tabMinWidth doesn't seem to work (have set it to 150). I've restarted the browser since setting this configuration, but that hasn't had any effect.

Has this setting been deprecated/removed in Firefox 4.0?

Firefox was started with command: firefox.exe -no-remote -P FF-4.0-B2

When multiple windows of a program opens in Windows 7, they 'stack up' on the bottom toolbar. However, in Firefox 4 I get this 'stack effect' whenever I have multiple tabs. Is there anyway to make it so that each tab is just seen as a part of one Firefox program, so I don't have it stacking up.

This happened

This was not an issue until v3.57 and beyond. It looks like lines are written on top of each other. Most forms are unreadable and you see or fill in any online forms. I could easily provide many screen shots.Seveal versions ago Mozilla sent me an add-on that completely fixed the issue. I cannot remember the name of the add-on and have exhausted my search. But it exists. Mozilla tech guy responded to my question with a link. Unfortunately, I can't find it any longer. He said it had to do with high dpi settings and the 16x9 format of the Samsung I use as a monitor.

When I navigate (click on) to a bookmark in either the bookmarks folder or in a folder on my bookmarks bar it remains highlighted when I reopen those folders until I mouse over it again. This happens all the time to the point that I can have dozens of bookmarks highlighted in a browsing session.

I use Windows 7 Home Premium and Firefox 4 Beta 2.

When I visit blogs and other websites that frequently use embedded Youtube videos, or embedded video from other sites, the controls don't work in Firefox 4 Beta. Any time you click the volume, slider or any other control at the bottom it instead opens up the video's origin page in a new tab.

I navigate to Gmail in FF 3.6.8 or 4.0 and log in. The site begins to load but after about 3 seconds it crashes the browser. The crash appears to be tied to the calendar sidebar widget loading, but that may just be a coincidence of the timing.

I have uninstalled and reinstalled Firefox 3.6.8. That didn't help.

I loaded Firefox in safe mode, disabled / uninstalled all the plug-ins and that didn't help.

So I installed 4.0 to see if that would fix it and it hasn't.

I am on a Dell XPS 1530 with Windows Vista.
