Address bar and search bar are too large in Firefox 4.12 Beta. I can make one of them smaller but it makes the other one larger to refill the space. Any way to make them both smaller so I can acquire a little more real estate to add one or two more icons? I'm already using "small icons" in the "customize" section. Also, can I move the "home" icon to the left of the address bar since I use it regularly?

Whenever I hover on a link, the URL shows at the bottom left screen instead of the address bar itself. How do I change it? I want to see the URL whenever I hover a link back to the address bar, beside the URL of my current page. Thanks!

How do I get FF4 to use Google's I'm feeling lucky feature?

I first thought it was something in DNS, but yet this is not a problem in FF3.6.13

My web browsing workflow was as follows- Type name of website in address bar, hit enter, wait for mozilla.org homepage to load.

Now if I do the exact same thing in FF4b12, I get a google search results page instead of the mozilla.org homepage.

Why is that? And where in about:config can I go to fix that?

I have tried this on two different internet connections, my home ISP using the ISP provided DNS and at my workplace where we run an in-house DNS server.

I am on a Mac running Snow Leopard 10.6.6, I use AdblockPlus and FirefoxB persona.

See the google query differences below- FF4b10/11 used it and it works the same in FF3.6

http://www.google.com/search?ie=UTF-8&oe=UTF-8&sourceid=navclient&gfns=1&q=mozilla

This is the query in FF4 b12- http://www.google.com/search?q=mozilla&ie=utf-8&oe=utf-8&aq=t&rls=org.mozilla:en-US:official&client=firefox-a

Do you see the difference??

I'm talking about the customizable button toolbars on the right. I open the Customize window, sure the Bookmark drop bown menu appears, yet there is another bookmark toolbar I can use, which only opens the Bookmark window on the left on my browser.

I want the Drop down button, but it simply vanishes once I close the toolbar customization window! This never happened on Win 7 but now on Win XP something's not right.

I know that the Firefox button can be shown on Windows XP too by hiding the Menu Bar. But why is it not default? If Windows XP users do not know that Firefox button can be shown by hiding Menu Bar, they will not only not be able to access the Firefox button but will also not be able to enjoy tabs-on-titlebar. Describe Mozilla why it is not default???

I have attempted to print from pop ups (insurance authorizations) and just a print of the current web page and they all come out jumbled up. All the data is on the page but its not in the format necessary. It used to print out in the same layout as what I was seeing on my monitor, and now its not. At all.

I've been trying to print shipping labels from UPS.com; the print out was only widely spaced characters, not the document format I needed. My bank statement (https://cibng.ibanking-services.com/) will not print properly either. Switching to Internet Explorer (current version) makes all the printing issues go away.

Other than that, FF4 is running with no problems.
