In the previous version of FF, it recreated a new tab, but when I just tried it, the closed tab replaced an existing tab in my browser. Both were on the same website, was that why? This was not what I wanted -- I did really want it to reopen the closed tab while leaving the existing one alone.

I know there is one in the tab bar but the way I setup my Firefox, it's useless... I need the old button that was customizable.

I always used the "New tab" button in my old version of Firefox. Now with version 4, it's not available anymore

I can't understand why it's removed... It was working well.

The arrows, left and right for forward and backward used to have a drop down arrow that listed all the pages so you could just hop to where you wanted to go. I used that nearly every time I used FF3. Now it is gone. Any ideas?

I got a new laptop today and in when setting it up I imported my Firefox profile from my last computer. Since I did that, the appearance in4.0 has reverted to what it looks like in 3.6.16 on the old computer. I would prefer not to delete everything and start again since there are quite a few bookmarks and the like that I use daily.

Is there a solution that I've missed? I've cleaned out my add-ons, changed the theme back to "default," and everything else I can think of, but it's still "broken." The only thing that looks "right" is that the tabs are above the address bar, and that's it.

I have just upgraded to firefox 4.01. In the new features page it shows a FIREFOX button and a new look to the page with more new features... However, my upgraded browser looks just like the old one with no new features. I have upgraded two computers with the same results. Why don't I have the new features?

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.
