Hi,

I made a shortcut to enable me choose an FF profile each time I want to use FF. Here's the code: "E:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox\firefox.exe" -profilemanager -no-remote

I also set FF as the default browser.

My problem occurs when I'm clicking a link form Mozilla Thunderbird while opening an instance of FF and then the FF profile manager shows up. I was asked to choose a profile to open the link with.

I prefer when I'm opening an FF instance, links from my Thunderbird will open directly in the current FF instance I'm opening instead of asking me again which profile I want to use.

Any suggestions of how I can do that?

Thank you..

The Navigational Toolbar buttons like the Back, Forward, Reload, Stop, Home etc are spread across the entire toolbar. Earlier, they used to be clubbed together. Clicking Home or Reload was as easy as simply taking the pointer to the top left corner of the screen and clicking the button. Now, I need to really start hunting for the Home or the Reload button if i require to use it. Please can we club these buttons to one side of the page so that you don't have to look for them all across the toolbar?

Under Windows 7, it was possible in Ffx 4.0b8 to see a preview of all tabs in the windows taskbar and select a tabs from the preview to show it. It was usefull, for example, only to check if the iGoogle page updates and there is new mail or this kind of things.

The taskbar icons looked like several pages when several tabs where opened.

Now, in 4.0b9, all this disappears, I can only see the preview of the actual active tabs and not the others tabs. I can't select an another tabs from the windows taskbar. The icon in the taskbar doesn't look like several page when several tabs are opened

Shortly stated - All my Google Fonts look the same in Firefox 3 (latest build) and Firefox 4 beta 9

I have tried disabling/enabling all plugins/extensions one by one and all at once.

I have tried removing Firefox 3 completely and installing Firefox 4 Beta to no effect on Google Web Fonts.

I've also made sure that Tools > Options has Javascript enabled as well as "Allow pages to choose their own fonts, instead of my selections above" - Advanced is enabled.

I need help please, I like to do all my web development in Firefox so going between Chrome and Firefox (works in Chrome just fine) is a bit of a pain.

Here's the screenshot of how my Firefox see Google Web Fonts (btw same applies to any page with Google Fonts or Font Previewer of Google.)
