I back up my profile directory, but it seems to be overly large. It contains over 100K files and over a GB of space. I couldn't find any command or extension to clean or compact it. Am I missing anything?

Is there back-support for FF 4.x? If not, why not?

I'd like to roll back to FF4.x until my add-ons are updated for 5.0, but I can't find 4.0 on the mozilla website (even though I can find 3.6.x). Is there a plan to have 4… (read more)

I'd like to roll back to FF4.x until my add-ons are updated for 5.0, but I can't find 4.0 on the mozilla website (even though I can find 3.6.x). Is there a plan to have 4.0 support, or has it been so completely superseded by 5.0 that it's actually unsafe to use?

As general feedback, I'd like to suggest that the compatibility check for add-ons happen *before* confirming the update: it's just unnecessarily frustrating when something breaks and it's too late to go back.

since firefox4 (also applicable for firefox 4.01 and 5.0) i get a lot of "file not found" errors when i open firefox and firefox restores the session. with firefox 3.x i don't had this error.

if only ~3 tabs are open, there everything is loaded without problem but most of the time i have >15 tabs in the session and about 50% of them are loaded with the "file not found" error.

i tried some of the solutions i found in the forum:

  • disabled ipv6
  • disabled dns prefetch
  • disabled all plugins/addons (created a new profile)
  • disabled proxy

the firewall is correctly configured, other browsers work without problems (even firefox 3.5).

I watched the video after the update and the screen in the video does not look like my screen. I like having to have fewer toolbars to take up the room on my screen. How do I get that same set-up on my computer. I like having the app tabs on the one bar so I don't have to have several bars to navigate to different sites. I also really like Firefox in general and have used it several years. I would really like to figure this out. Thanks.

Somehow, during an earlier installation, the organization of my bookmarks got bashed. Since I was installing a new version of FireFox (version 5), I wanted to clean up my bookmarks, so I was hoping to download them in html, correct them offline, and then reimport them. However, I no longer seem to have the 'organize bookmarks' option.
