Context menu - why "open in new window" is second and "open in new tab" is the first? In FF3.x there is reversed.

In FF 3.x two commands: "open in window" and "open in new tab" have got just this order. But - I don't know why - in FF 4.x the order is reversed. Every time when I click right button of my mouse and select the second option - where in FF 3.x I've got "open in new tab" I can see web site in a new window, not in a new tab.

How can I change it? I tried editor menu and I edited userchrome.css, but it's not working or I don't know how to change it. Without it I must uninstall FF 4.x because it's unusable.

So far the Firefox upgrades are nothing but trouble to me and my computer. Where is the homepage. Why when I open Firefox from the desktop shortcut do I not get a homepage, but rather the last page I visited. I was doing bills, and finished but couldn't find the log off button, so closed the page, and then closed firefox. When I re-opened, it opened right to the page where I was still signed into my account!!!!!!! A security failure if I ever saw one. There is not one thing I have found to be helpful since Firefox first updated me to 3.6.14, then quit responding completely! So I tried the 4 Beta, and it is so far a disaster.

Firefox 3.6 and All betas of 4 will keep my user/pass for sites, then after 1-4 days it removes them, prompting me again. I've been a tech for 12 years, I never had issues before 3.6 and others I know with same browser have same issues (different computers). In short, firefox doesn't keep passwords. Why? Do I need to switch to chrome? That seems to work

Well with firefox 3.6 when you have multiple tabs open and close the browser it ask you if you want to save your session for later, firefox 4 only warns you about closing multiple tabs and doesn't save them for later restoring of your session. Hopes this becomes part of the final release because that is one firefox's most useful features.

Firefox 4 Beta has problem when printing shipping pages from Amazon Marketplace, it shows and prints strange symbols instead of the packing slip and the label. Do you have any idea why is that?

Well, I installed it 2 days ago and yesterday when I tried to print a packing slip and a label for Amazon customers it printed so many strange symbols that were nothing like what they are supposed to be, not even close. When I printed it with another browser it was all fine, so it is obviously a problem of the new version of my favorite browser. Probably something with the encoding, but since I'm not a computer geek, I cannot give more info. :(

I just downloaded Firefox 5 and it said that my Yahoo toolbar will not work with it. Is this true? If so I will not use this new version and will switch to another browser if Firefox stops supporting the Yahoo toolbar. Thank you.

Saved form data and logins are not sorted alphabetically anymore

Go to gmail, double click in the "username" field, suggestions appear in a drop down box. If you have more than 1 gmail account they are no longer sorted alphabetically, they are sorted by the order entered! (with the newest entered on the bottom)

I believe that this is related to the files formhistory.sqlite and signons.sqlite not being sorted properly.

Also the addon "Form History Control" will NOT sort these fields alphabetically. Setting browser.formfill.bucketSize to 99999999 or 9999999 in about:config does not work either!

I installed a printer to my netbook and it was printing fine. Then it seemed like in the past week, everything I was printing(just via internet, not a word docs) started printing funny. Very large scale and lettering (kern) is very stretched out as well. This seems to have happened since new updates have occurred. I have beta 12. I am very frustrated as I use this printer to print business documents, invoices, and mailing labels and this looks a bit amateurish and childlike. Please help!

I migrated from my 2006 MacBook to a brand new i7 MacBook Pro (OS10.6.6) and discovered that Flash is broken in Firefox 4.0b12. I get a black box where I should be seeing Flash video.

Flash works just fine in Safari, so the problem is likely specific to Firefox 4.0b12.

Has anyone else had this problem?

When I first load the Bookmark toolbar, all is displayed correctly. That is to say, the Firefox interface is in its new sleek look with the Firefox Button flush with the top of the page (on the left).

When I close and restart Firefox Beta 4 .0b12, there is a space where the Bookmark Toolbar should be, and an http page title has appeared in the traditional place in the top left border. The Firefox Button has moved down to between the title bar and the address bar.

I can reset it by unchecking the Bookmark Toolbar and then re-enabling it again. This lasts only as long as the session. When I restart Firefox, the display corruption has returned: title bar in place and Bookmark toolbar not visible.
