Issue

I have another kind of problem with Firefox

Description

My browser was automatically updated to version 3.6.7. After this update, I am unable to switch between tabs by clicking on them. I can close whichever tab I wish, but this is a major inconvenience to have to close a tab I wish to continue browsing.

This happened

Every time Firefox opened

updated to version 3.6.7

I have nero backup set for incremental backup at 1330 hrs weekly/sturday. After the backup Firefox report "Download Sort" and forecastbar as incompatible, where they were originally reported as compatible. Had to install roboform twice as site for downloading update was not up to date itself. This may have been part of issue as FF is sensitive to how may remove/installs it does in a session.

This happened

== After install of Roboform upgrade and remove reinstall because of wrong version.

I have been using Firefox on my Windows 7 based computer (Ultimate x64) and I didn't experience this when using v3.6 and earlier versions. But ever since I updated to v4 (beta 1 and now beta 2), I have noticed that when I have multiple tabs open in Firefox, it shows up as Windows in Windows 7-taskbar... If I hover the pointer over to, and place it above the Firefox Icon (or click it), a LOOOOOooonng list shows up with each tab.. But that wasn't the case when using v3.6 for example, instead, each window showed up, but the tabs didn't show until I opened the actual Firefox-window, and this is exactly how I would like it to be.. I have been searching with lights and without finding any answer/s, search the settings-tab and other locations where this feature might show up, but I can't seem to find it, Im completely out of ideas and I need your help.

Best regards // Martin Johansson, Sweden
