I just installed Mozilla Firefox and am going through a tutorial that states that one of the nice features is the + button in the tab bar. I don't have a plus button and cannot figure out how to make that happen. I can add a new tab, but it still doesn't give me the plus button, which I would like to have.

I would like Firefox to simply quit when I shut down the machine. I don't much care whether it saves my context or not, I just don't want it to generate a prompt that delays the shut down. I saw the settings that are required for the prompt to appear, and I don't want to change them just to make the prompt not appear.

I have a laptop that I upgraded: ubuntu8.10 -> ubuntu9.0.4 java stopped working in yahoo bridge. (firefox = 3.0.19) I followed Sun's instructions putting the link to the correct .so file to java6u20 plugin but that did not help. I tried clearing cache. still nothing. I have another PC with firefox3.0.19 and there is no java plugin but there are two flash plugins (1 free, the other non-free) it is at ubuntu8.10 and java is working just fine in that firefox. I have followed all of firefox's steps for enabling java in the preferences dropdown. I can provide more details if you need them.

I open a new Microsoft Word Document and it immediately minimizes to the task bar at the bottom of the screen. When I go to maximize the document, it "disappears" immediately to the left going off the screen. I am having the same problems with emails when I try to forward or create new emails. They will not hold long enough for me to write on them - they disappear off the screen.

This feature was in version 3.6.18, why would you remove it from version 5.0! It allowed users to bookmark all the open tabs on the current window and give it a name. This awesome feature allowed the user to save all the open tabs in case of a system crash or power failure or whatever.
