it seems that every single tab gets its own unique window, now i feel that this is inefficient as well as making being organized out side of firefox a harder task. Since when you close any of the windows that hold 1 tab it removes it from the master window and the group menu.

Now hopefully this is just a bug caused by the new as well as great packaged feature that the grouping tool is.

I don' t like Firefox maximized so I use the smaller square next to the X in order to keep it at around 2/3 my screen size. That way I can see part of my screen in the background. All of a sudden, I can either maximize the window or, if I click the smaller box which is supposed to simply make it a smaller window, the whole thing disappears! Gone. Nada. No nothing. I can't get it to do anything and have to go to the task manager to maximize it though the taskbar shows it's still open, not minimized to the tray.

This happens sporadically and the only way I can change it is to open a new window, copy all my tabs over to the new window and then close the maximized one. I've tried closing it with the Ctrl, Alt or shift button pressed then exiting or Xing out of it, but no combination has worked.

Not happy with this at all!

Where can I find FAQ on using tab groups in Panorama? Mine seems very buggie to the point where it seems pointless.

When right-clicking on tab, the Move to Group --> always shows New Group even though I've named that group (ie., FireFox Support). The tab also remains visible on main screen even though its content is also showing in the group. Is this how it's meant to be or is my version not displaying properly?

Is there also a method of forcing the apps tabs to refresh automatically so they stay current? I have tabs for Facebook and Twitter, and would like those to refresh so I can see if there are waiting notifications.

I must add that I'm brilliantly pleased with this new version of FF. Fast, clean and impressive. I do wish there were user manuals for those of us who prefer knowing what we're doing rather than flying blind.

Thanks in advance for your assistance.

Hi,

I'm sure in 3.n I right clicked on a bookmark to choose whether to open it in a new window or a new tab, or to flick through a number of bookmarks to open two or three at once. In 4.Beta when I right click a bookmark I don't get an option to open it in another window or new tab. I don't get an option to open it at all.

Was this removed deliberately? & if so why? Seems a wierd thing to take out.

This question pretty much states it clearly. FavIcon; spinning round and round like those little pictures on a slot machine. Doesn't happen on any other website that I've visited since installing FF4, and doesn't happen in IE8 or FF3.6.*

Hijacked network settings (proxy)

I am running windows 7, and using Firefox 4.0b7.

Somehow I got a hold of the "backdoor:win32/cycbot.b". I ran "Dr.Web CureIt!" and then "MalwareBytes". It was found and removed, but now, whenever I open Firefox, the connection setting defaults to using http proxy of 127.0.0.1, with a port setting of 55030.

I have to go in, delete the proxy and reset every time I launch Firefox. IE, once backdoor was removed, is opening just fine and retains its settings.

I also noticed in the file named prefs.js, the following lines appear and can not be removed. When I do remove them, they reappear as soon as I launch FF.

user_pref("network.http.max-persistent-connections-per-server", 4); user_pref("network.proxy.http", "127.0.0.1"); user_pref("network.proxy.http_port", 55030); user_pref("network.proxy.type", 1);

My search bar has never worked. Not when I had Firefox 3... and not now. I had to add a google toobar, in order to be able to search. This made Firefox very wide and ugly looking. I didn't like it and so I don't want to add it again, now that I have Firefox 4. Please help! I go to add search engines, but they just don't appear when I add them. Why is this?

The Google Search Bar in the top right corner no longer contains the Google Search Engine. I tried adding it by going to Google.com but when I tried to add it, it didn't recognise anything to add. I also tried going through the list of Search Engines provided by Firefox but there are so many different ones created by so many different people, I had no idea which one to choose.
