I upgraded to FF 4. The Norton toolbar 5.5 is incompatible. I want to know if I am still protected by Norton while browsing even though the Norton toolbar is not installed. According to the Norton settings, the web protection is on and working. If I am still protected I will wait for an updated Norton toolbar to be available, otherwise I will need to know how to uninstall FF 4 and reinstall FF3.6.

I'm using Firefox 4 on Ubuntu 10.10 on a mac. When I tested http://get.webgl.org/, it says "Hmm. While your browser seems to support WebGL, it is disabled or unavailable. If possible, please ensure that you're running the latest drivers for your video card. For more help, please visit the support site for your browser.". I found http://videos.mozilla.org/serv/mozhacks/flight-of-the-navigator/ more helpful, as it says "Could not initialise WebGL, sorry :-(". What am I supposed to do now?

The previous version of Firefox allowed F-Secure to activate a toolbar for checking websites and reporting suspicious ones. Also, it allowed F-Secure to rate google search results in terms of their safety to visit. These features do not seem to work in Firefox 4. Is there a way to fix these problems and if not how could I roll back to my previous version of Firefox?

Thanks

Since the recent download of Firefox 4, I've been getting this message while trying to open my browser:

A script on this page may be busy, or it may have stopped responding. You can stop the script now, or you can continue to see if the script will complete.

Script: chrome://tavgp/content/libs/include.js:595'

It gives me the options to continue or stop script. When I choose continue, nothing happens. When I choose stop script, Firefox opens up. The thing that annoys me the most is that there's a 'don't ask this again' check box that does not seem to work because I've been clicking that every single time.

This is the first time this has happened for any Firefox version.

With the toolbar options configured with menu bar, nagigation bar, bookmarks bar and tabs on top I get no Firefox button, a full menu layout before the address box. If I uncheck the menu bar, I get the firefox button, but no address bar, and a blank line between tabs and bookmark bar

Unchecking the navigation bar removes the empty line between tabs and bookmarks.

I have removed all incompatible add-ons, and looked for any likely culprits in about:config without success. Any suggestions?

I have a number of bookmarks across the bookmark toolbar. Most of them fit in Firefox 3 but now Firefox 4 has stuck in unwanted icons resulting in most of my bookmarks not displaying! I don’t want the icons! I want to see my bookmarks! How do I get rid of the unwanted icons? Also, I used to be able to access additional toolbar bookmarks (which wouldn't fit across the toolbar) by clicking on the right side. How all I can get is ALL bookmarks and I can't get to the additional ones! I waited for 40 minutes in live chat only to be dismissed with a no answer available, try elsewhere response.

I decided to upgrade to Firefox 4.0... now I cannot 1) figure how to get my tabs below the url line, 2) find a refresh button, and 3) get my status bar up at the bottom.

I've found a status bar addon, but it didn't work. I don't think I should be needing addons to make a browser work like it did before. These are not useful changes; these are just changes for change's sake...

The past two days, my tabs either say "New Tab" (as if I had just opened a new tab) or "Connecting..." (as if the page were still loading), after the page has finished loading. Pages load properly, but the site name doesn't appear on the tab. Sometimes the loading symbol (green circle for my skin) is still going on the tabs that say "Connecting...". Any idea how to fix this?

Your new Firefox 4 is impressive. I went through all the educational videos you are offering. My Problem is that after downloading the new Firefox 4, I do not find the new Firefox (menu) button that is supposed to include all the menu options (File, Edit, View,..., and Help). I would like to have the new Firefox (general menu button) instead of all those old version menu items beside each other.

My best regards,
