Question win 7 os I have a bookmark folder the contain both espn and cnn. When a middle click on it to open both sites and leave them open for a while and then go to middle click on another bookmark folder that contains both speedguide and foxsports it wont open either speedguide or foxsports. The only way i can I can get both new sites to open would be to open a new instance of firefox and then middle clicking on the bookmarked folder that contains both speedguide and foxsports. This happens with any bookmark folder that has been open for a while. I've tried trhis in FF safe mode and also with a new profile and the problem still exists. This happens only with FF 4. It never happened with any version of FF 3. Any ideas? thx

FF4 seems to have redraw issues with the scrollbars after having been maximized and then restored to normal size.

Just installed FF4 on Windows XP SP2. I'm using the "Silver" version of the standard XP style. The theme used in FF4 is the default one and I only have the latest AdBlock Pro installed.

Nearly always after having had the FF4 window maximized and then restored to normal size the scrollbars are no longer redrawn correctly.

I didn't have this issue with earlier versions of FF.

Visiting the Forums the sidebar info is incorrect. For example I am advised:

System Details

   Windows XP
   Firefox 3.6.16


Wrong!!

I am using Vista and Firefox 4.0


On this page the info is correct.

These silly inconsistencies suggest that this version has been inadequately tested.


Upgraded and now bitterly regret it! This info is wrong; the Google search bar no longer works correctly - beginning to lose confidence in the browser!

Thanks for the upgrade to Firefox 4! Unfortunately, you don't say anywhere that it's not compatible with OSX 10.4. Might want to fix that so that other users don't run into this issue.

After the latest upgrade to 3.whatever, Firefox asked if I'd like to upgrade to 4.0. I said yes, assuming (since Firefox has always been compatible before) that it'd ins… (read more)

After the latest upgrade to 3.whatever, Firefox asked if I'd like to upgrade to 4.0. I said yes, assuming (since Firefox has always been compatible before) that it'd install and work. It didn't. Why? Because Firefox is no longer supporting OSX 10.4, apparently. This should probably be noted SOMEWHERE so that trusting people like me don't screw up our existing Firefox.

I downloaded Firefox 4 yesterday and everything was fine. Today, I clicked on the tiny arrow in the top-right corner and made my first tab group and entered it. When I entered it, all my bookmarks had the default icon and all of my history was erased. I closed the group and went back to my main tabs and everything was gone. Restarting didn't help. The only history I have is Today.

Now the this item is part of the "new tab" option. So you can choose either have it next to the tabs, OR, as a button on the toolbar. In all previous versions I had the new tab button in my toolbar, and also, the embedded + button next to the tabs. So i could add a new tab either way.

Could you please revert this back ? Thanks!!!

i don't like the New 4 i was much happier with the other 3.6.14? how can i get back the other. Ive looked at the control panel and only the new on is in there. Your opening statement says that you like to have feed back from your clients, and so here it is. the new is not beginner or even intermediate user friendly!!! could you have a little brief picture show of what the new change would look like before we click on the update.
