I can see the "statusbar issue" have been discussed a lot, but couldn't find a satisfying answer.

I haven't used Internet Explorer for several years in benefit to Firefox. I hope I can keep it that way while I am also able to stay up to date at the same time.

After recently updated my FF 3.6(I think) to 4.0.1, and plenty of time trying to customize the new looks and location of bars and buttons etc to my likings, I need help with a few things:

1. How do I disable the "link hover preview bar" and make it appear on the Add-on Bar(the old statusbar replacement)?

2. How do I remove the X(close button) on the Add-on bar? I don't know if its only me, but something at the back of my head mistakes it for a pop-up or something else that needs to be closed. Very annoying to have to re-enable it every time.

3. How do I put a "border" around the new Add-on bar so it doesn't look like an extension of the webpage im currently at? The lack of a border might be the reason why I subconsciously think it's a popup. But even so, I still see no reason for the X.

4. The new colorless buttons/icons makes it easy to miss click (they all look too similar now), can I get them old ones back?

5. How do I make the Reload button and Stop button stay separate buttons instead of one combined button?

6. Lastly, I am used to have a button at the right side of the last tab to open a new tab. Now I need to add another button at the top instead. Or can I get the old "open new tab" feature back somehow?

Thank you for your time.

I don't understand the benefit of "Tab Utilities Options" and want to remove it. How please? I tried that feature because "Fox Tab" was no longer available with the 5.0 upgrade.

I loved "Fox Tab". A click and go to a website you had added to "top sites" previously. With the 5.0 upgrade, that feature is no longer available. That was a disappointment. Is there a similar feature "add on" that is like "Fox Tab" compatible with 5.0. If so I would like to know about that. Or better still....make "Fox Tab" useable with Firefox 5.0 If upgrades cancel previously downloaded features that really work...what's the point?

I can't open any blank tabs, but I can right click and open a link in a new tab. I haven't changed anything, and I don't have the Ask toolbar at all, which is the only answer I could find on the forums, so it doesn't help in my case.

There seems to be no way to change the default behavior of the cancel button of the download manager.

I would like to be able to break a download connection without losing what I have downloaded so far.

At the moment to achieve this I pause the download, move the files, then cancel the download. This is messy and has caused me to make mistakes in the past.

thanks for any suggestions.

The nag screen to make me update is coming up every two days when I click 'ask me later'. This is not 'later' in my book, it is going to take longer than two says for my av supplier to update their plug-in, I'll bet.

Ok, I know in the grand scheme of things it's not a big deal but ffs, even Adobe can get their head round giving you a choice of how long before you want to be nagged again. And they used to be really demanding!

Been trying to get HTML5 video to work in Firefox 4 and 5. It doesn't work. I've used Fireogg to process the video but all I get is a big "X" on screen. The code I'm using works in Safari, Opera and Chrome. This has been going on for months now and I don't appreciate having to jump thru hoops to do such a simple thing for Firefox. It's absurd. Every other browser works. Check below for the code.
