The Menu Bar at top of the screen does not look right after the Help entry. File thru Help is fine and have a white background. After that I can see my screen background with icons for Print, Downloads, and others superimposed. Some of the icons can hardly be seen as they blend right in with my Wallpaper. Furthermore the line above the Menu Bar has it's own problems: It has the Firefox logo followed by some writing that go for for about 6 inches followed by stuff from my wallpaper. In other words, starting from the top of the screen I have two short lines of stuff with a white background followed by a see through view of stuff from my screen wallpaper. Starting with the Navigation Toolbar everything is fine. I don't have this problem with IE8. Can anyone shed some light on this problem. Thanks, JWare

I have read a lot of threads, but I have not found that any help. I just reformatted my hard drive and installed FF4 fresh. . I open firefox to my homepage. No tabs opened at this point. If I right click on on the page to open a new link by opening a new tab, it stays on the current page and opens a new tab in the background. My problem is if I am on a page and I open a new tab by selecting a BOOKMARK, it switches to the new tab immediately. I want to stay on the current tab and have the bookmark tab open in a background tab. Any help? Thanks.

P.S. I have tried checking and unchecking "When I open a link in a new tab, switch to it immediately", I have tried safe mode, I have tried disabling all of the add-on's....nothing seems to work.

When the link is there I am not given an option to save the image, just options relating to the link.

How can I save such an image?

Sometimes my wifi connection is choppy (darn that microwave popcorn!) and I hate it when I'm in the middle of reading the links in Drudge and it reloads....sometimes shifting the layout a bit or just hanging while it waits for some adserver to respond.

Is there any way to stop this from happening? Tried Freezing the tab. And for some reason, firefox is not preventing this page from automatically reloading like it does others.

Any ideas?

I don't have Tools and options with all that cutesy c*** like FF used to have. FF4 has two different option bars under Orange Firefox drop down menu box and another options drop down menu box from options. So how the Hell do I save a browsing session? Then how do I reopen it? Can I set this thing to reopen last browsing session tabs like normal browsers do? And can I get through this stuff without having the damned thing crash every 5 minutes? Thanks- keimanzero

Thank you in advance. I upgraded to firefox 4, and since then I have had a problem. When opening a new tab I have chosen to be directed to google.com.

After upgrading the cursor just stays in the address bar, but I would like it to automatically move to the google search bar on the page. Does anyone know how to fix this? Thanks again.
