The close tab icon ("x" box) does not appear on the tabs. Safemode and no add-ons, new window with only 2 tabs, still the same behavior. Why? How to fix?

It would seem the key is explained by the browser.tabs.closeButtons setting ( http://kb.mozillazine.org/Browser.tabs.closeButtons ). Mine is set to 5. If I set it back to the default of 1, then I get the close buttons ("x") showing up on the tabs again (or on the active tab only, if there are several). But 5 is not a valid value according the description. I'm sure that *I* did not change it to 5. So anyway, I changed it in safe mode back to the default of 1, and the close icons appeared immediately. Yeah! So then restarted firefox to have the add-ons working again. This caused it to be be automatically changed to 5 again. Grrrr!

Is there no way to trouble-shoot which add-on is screwing with the setting? I mean, other than turning them off one by one and restarting firefox each time? That could take all day.

Problem 1: All update (beta, RC) fails in my computer. After download, when I click in apply button, Firefox closes and a process "firefox.exe"starts with (~2.800 kB) and nothing happens. Every time and every versions in my 2 computers (Vista and Seven). It occurs since ~10 version (9, 10, 11... i don't remember.

When I download the exe from Mozilla, the update works.

Problem 2: Since the ~10 version or flash version, mostly embedded youtube videos doesn't load in firefox (in all pcs again). In youtube site it works, but embedded only shows a black square. In Google Reader it occurs all the time.

Heya, I recently have added to my blog a star ratings feature which allows users to rate the blog. When I tried the preview for the first time, it worked dandy [in the preview ] and was displaying everything. When I saved the addition [from the code editing section] and opened the blog in normal view, the star ratings had gone. The space for them in the page is still there, but I cannot see them. opening in another browser [namely chrome] made it work fine, but how do I get around this issue?

I need to be able to load fresh copies of webpages and bypass the cach each and every time I visit a website. I have scoured the web and it seems no one knows how to accomplish this without pressing a bunch of buttons every time I visit a web page.

IE has a setting to check, I can't believe Firefox does not.
