Firefox updated and now my bookmarks are wonky. I can't edit existing ones and when I create a new one and hit "choose" to select a folder to put it in, only a half dozen of my folders show up. I have something like thirty folders! Where are they? And how do I get them to show up again?

I have windows 7 Professional. When I click the star, I am offered an option to save the link in the Other Bookmarks folder. If I click the drop-down arrow, I am offered 3 choices, Bookmarks Toolbar, Bookmarks Menu, or Other Bookmarks. Sometimes I am offered Choose. If I click either of the first two, I am asked for tags. If I click Choose, I am dumped into one of these choices. How do I see my bookmarks and choose one? Thank you.

I have firefox 4.0 RC1 on my laptop and on my desktop. On my desktop, the bookmark button on the toolbar is gone, but on my laptop the button on the toolbar is shown. I've seen a few post about having the button removed through coding but I don't really know much about that.

If anyone can help, that would be awesome. Maybe a step by step?

I hope this is the right place to be asking these kind og questions. I haven't been able to find any answers to this, so I'm hoping for you to be able to answer me. :)

I love how the new Firefox 4 browser is progressing, and especially love the improved speed and thus the ability to use a web app such as grooveshark, which is now almost entirely based on JavasScript, rather than Flash. Since I'm now able to use Grooveshark I'm absolutely in love with the new idea of an app tab.

My two questions has something to do with the new app tab feature, which is as following:

Firstly: When I'm using an web app in my app tab, am I ever going to be able to hide the navigation bar? Is there made plans for the development of that particular feature?

Secondly: Is there made plans for persistent app tabs across multiple windows? I find it rater odd, that my pinned app tabs is not showing on all of my browser windows if should I choose to have multiple windows open. I know that this probably will be a bit difficult to implement. What will happen when interact with one app tab on one window, and then opens the same app tab on another window? Unless app tabs runs as seperate programs, it would be hard to maintain... But nevertheless my question is still the same. Is there made plans for persistent app tabs across multiple open windows? :)


Hope you can answer my questions since I have had a hard time trying to search for them myself in the interwebs!

Privacy and security setting require too much time and too much to have to learn just secure access to the Internet? Why don't you get it? Firefox users need to have default suites of security setting from which to choose. Examples: Maximum Security: High Security: Medium Security: Low security: Roll my own by picking and choosing.

Clicking on any of these security categories should list what is included and maybe an option to change something.

Once an option is chosen, subsequent changes and updates to features within that option should be automated and a 'What's new/changed in the chosen security category be added within security updates emails.

As it is I have to spend hours figuring what alll this stuff means just to get security internet acces via a Firefox - not that other are better.

To begin, I utterly despise the changes to the URL Bar and the removal of the Status bar. In order to stay with the latest version of Firefox I am attempting to recreate the look and feel as best I can.

I have already installed the Status-4-Evar extension. The only thing that remains is to remove the status information and the target URL from the bar.

Are there any settings in about:config that will allow me to make these changes?

EDIT: Status information can be removed by toggling. status4evar.statusInUrlBar. Still looking for a way to remove the target URL...

I opened a new window in Firefox main window. The new window looks nothing like the main window of Firefox 4 Beta. And when I have tabs in new window, the URL doesn't seem to change. Infact, it doesn't change at all in any tabs. It remains unless I manually change it.

I do not encounter this problem in main Firefox window. Only if I open a new window from the main. Why is that?

Have a look at the screen caps I did.

Main Window New Window

You can also notice the tab I'm at and the URL it displays in the New Window image. You can see what I'm talking about here.

Per the subject line. Before my last system reboot, Panorama was fine. Now the feature is gone -- along with all the open tabs represented by the other Panorama groups I had!

I only just noticed the change, but perhaps it happened earlier, after reboot, when Firefox updated itself. But I could be wrong about the precise timing and, in fact, I think I HAVE used it since the last reboot.

Honestly can't think of anything I've done to cause it to go. Exiting and restating FF doesn't restore it. Good feature, miss it badly. And the open tabs that were lost!
