Sinced upgrade to 4.0 the hyperlinks on my own website are no longer underlined. They're fine in FF 3 and all other browsers tried.

I am using Win 7 and have just upgraded to Firefox 4. In my plugin section, when I enable a program, the word disabled immediately appears next to the program name. This happens to every plugin program that I have. Thus, when I am using Firefox and the need for a plugin is required, I received a message telling me that program is disabled even though the word enable still appears on the plugin line. I never had this problem in any of the Firefox 3 browsers. How can I correct this problem?

In the previous version of FF, it recreated a new tab, but when I just tried it, the closed tab replaced an existing tab in my browser. Both were on the same website, was that why? This was not what I wanted -- I did really want it to reopen the closed tab while leaving the existing one alone.

I know there is one in the tab bar but the way I setup my Firefox, it's useless... I need the old button that was customizable.

I always used the "New tab" button in my old version of Firefox. Now with version 4, it's not available anymore

I can't understand why it's removed... It was working well.

I went to a website which I need to look more than one thing up on, so I pressed ctrl+t to open a new tab, and started typing in the address. It filled it in for me from my history, I clicked it (to be as specific as possible, I clicked on the website it suggested me with in the drop-down menu from my history, like it does when you start typing in an address/keyword), and it just brought me back to the previous tab instead of loading the website in the new one I opened. I looked through my settings--both Tab-Mix Plus settings and Firefox settings--to see what could be causing this, if it was something I could enable/disable, but I didn't see anything. This is a really annoying feature and I would like to disable it. I know it doesn't seem like a big deal, but it's a really irritating thing to me... I guess I'm slightly obsessive-compulsive that way.

I know there are ways of getting around it, but, as I said, I find it really irritating and I'm stubborn. If there's a way to disable it I would really like to know.
