There seems to be a javascript issue on youtube (+ other sites), as nothing happens when I click my username "tab" next to Sign Out, where a menu should expand. I've unintalled FF, reinstalled, removed most addons, and checked settings. Works in Chrome.

Also on youtube there's an issue with "James Blunt, live from London" bar at the top of the page not disappearing when I click the X.

I am having trouble installing a few add-ons. It started when I tried to install the McAfee Site Advisor, and I figured "Ok, maybe it's just a problem with that" and let it be. I didn't know why it had worked on the family PC but not my laptop, but I let it slide. Just recently however, I was unable to install the Amazon Add-on "wishlist button" OR the "Wishlist toolbar." I even went with the 1.3 one that is supposed to be compatible with the new firefox versions, and still nothing.

I have tabs open in the "usual" browsing mode. I go into the private browsing mode, browse in the mode and then go back to the usual mode. All transitions are via the menu. When back into the usual mode, all I see are the app tabs. All other tabs are not seen but are there grouped separately, seen only when I go into panorama. I see the grouped tabs in the upper left corner.

The problem is reproducible.

In Firefox 3 there was a button that would open a new tab. This button was next to my location bar (next to the home, refresh, etc buttons), and also usable when I didn't have any tabs open (unlike the + on the tabbar, which is only there when I turn on my tabbar). Although there is a button I can add that will open a new window, I would like to know if it is possible to have similar button that will open a new tab.

When I first open up FF, and open up new webpages, I get a pop-up message saying "2". Before I updated to FF4, the pop-up would say "The website at _____ says: 2". Has anyone heard of this before? It's getting annoying. I thought maybe it was from not updating FF but it's still here!

I installed FF 4.0.1 and I'm loving it! The only issue, and it's a BIG issue, is that I have to press Alt every time to make the menu at the top come up so I can view my bookmarks list! This is VERY annoying, so I'd like to know if there's any way to add a bookmarks button or something that will do the same as hitting Alt and then clicking 'Bookmarks'.

Thanks in advance

There is a backup button in FF4 that is larger than the round one in FF3. But to the right of the forward button there used to be a dropdown that would list the last dozen pages. Can this function be enabled in FF4 or do I need to look for a plug-in to do this. I can't believe they took it out.

I upgraded to Firefox 4 Win 7, but a needed extension is incompatible with version 4 and automatically disabled. I need to revert to the previous version of Firefox until the necessary extension is updated for compatibility with Firefox 4. I have located on my hard drive the most recent installation file, Firefox Setup 3.6.6.exe. I need to know the best way to revert to that version and preserve and transfer all my bookmarks and settings. Thanks!
