The arrows, left and right for forward and backward used to have a drop down arrow that listed all the pages so you could just hop to where you wanted to go. I used that nearly every time I used FF3. Now it is gone. Any ideas?

How can I download a pre-4 version of Firefox since I can't get RoboForm to work with 4.0?

I want to download the version of Firefox prior to the new 4.0 one as I can't seem to get my copy of Roboform to install on my system now for some reason. Not sure that the install prob. is a result of FF 4.0, but it started after I installed 4.0. Another reason I want to go back to 3.? is that I'm not a big fan of the new interface. Had no problems with the old interface and prefer it.

Thanks.

Tom

I got a new laptop today and in when setting it up I imported my Firefox profile from my last computer. Since I did that, the appearance in4.0 has reverted to what it looks like in 3.6.16 on the old computer. I would prefer not to delete everything and start again since there are quite a few bookmarks and the like that I use daily.

Is there a solution that I've missed? I've cleaned out my add-ons, changed the theme back to "default," and everything else I can think of, but it's still "broken." The only thing that looks "right" is that the tabs are above the address bar, and that's it.

This version of Firefox does not offer to "save settings"; a major error. The advice to alter file name is not tenable. That file is not possible to alter having reached it through Firefox when open.

I closed Firefox and hunted through every Firefox file and could not find it. Catch 22; won`t accept change when Firefox open and not there when Firefox close. This is an… (read more)

I have read the explanations of ease of use by dropping the bookmarks bar and moving the tabs to the top. If that works for some then great. The nice thing about personal settings, is that they need to be for ease of use to the individual. When I follow this advice; "How do I put tabs back on bottom like they used to be?

At the top of the Firefox window, click on the Firefox button, go over to the Options... arrow and uncheck Tabs on Top. "

First, I cannot find a Firefox button, so I right click in the blank area to get options. Then I check the bookmarks bar and uncheck the tabs on top. That works until I shut off my computer. And then I have to do it all over again when I reboot.

Can I get the permanent option for these choices?

the older version allowed me to save all open tabs by giving it a name, i.e. April 29, but I can't find it in the new version. Is there anything like it available? If so, I really want it back

Tonight, for example, I have many tabs open which I'd like to close but re-open tomorrow.

I'd like to save them all as "April 30" in my Bookmarks... the 0ld version allowed me to do this, but I can't find this in the new version.

The only way I don't seem to lose those open tabs I'm working with is by doing "Contol + Delete", but I know this shouldn't be done all the time...

There must be a better way, but if there isn't, would I be able to get back and work with the old version?
