I have nero backup set for incremental backup at 1330 hrs weekly/sturday. After the backup Firefox report "Download Sort" and forecastbar as incompatible, where they were originally reported as compatible. Had to install roboform twice as site for downloading update was not up to date itself. This may have been part of issue as FF is sensitive to how may remove/installs it does in a session.

I have been using Firefox on my Windows 7 based computer (Ultimate x64) and I didn't experience this when using v3.6 and earlier versions. But ever since I updated to v4 (beta 1 and now beta 2), I have noticed that when I have multiple tabs open in Firefox, it shows up as Windows in Windows 7-taskbar... If I hover the pointer over to, and place it above the Firefox Icon (or click it), a LOOOOOooonng list shows up with each tab.. But that wasn't the case when using v3.6 for example, instead, each window showed up, but the tabs didn't show until I opened the actual Firefox-window, and this is exactly how I would like it to be.. I have been searching with lights and without finding any answer/s, search the settings-tab and other locations where this feature might show up, but I can't seem to find it, Im completely out of ideas and I need your help.

Best regards // Martin Johansson, Sweden

I had all sorts of problems getting styleable elements to work in Firefox 3.6. The below code works:



Test

 article { display: block; border: 1px solid red }



Welcome This is a test.



However, it works only because of:

display: block;

when styling the HTML5 article element. If I leave the above code out of the style then the red border is not displayed properly. This code works fine in Chrome and even versions of IE when the article element is added to the DOM.

The current options for opening a new tab in firefox is to either open at the right hand end of the tab strip, or to open it at the right end of the related content tabs. If the number of tabs between the current tab and the new tab exceeds the number visible across the window, there is no visible indication that the click was successful and a new tab was opened. Is there a way to get Firefox to open a new tab to the right of the current tab but to the left of the related content tabs. This means that you would always see the new tab being opened. It would also mean that if you accidentally opened the tab in the foreground rather than the background, the related content tabs would still stay in order (albeit from right to left rather than the current left to right).
