Hello, I have been using Firefox off and on for the last year or so, and there's one thing that always gets me to stop using it, whenever I download a file I cant see the file size of it in the "Save As" dialog, Internet Explorer and Opera has this feature and it's one of the things that I really need, I have tried that extension that does this (I forget the name of it), but unfortunately it is not for Firefox 4 :(

Thanks you for your help :)

I upgraded from FF 3.6.15 to FF 4. It says it's "up to date", but it's exactly the same (except many of my addons not working, which was to be expected). Tabs are in the same place, there's no new button to consolidate the menu bar, there's no new nothing! I've tried upgrading 5 times now, with the same result (even restarted the computer each time). I use WinXP, sp3.

I unintentionally clicked the 'Do this always for these types of files' in the downloads window when it would pop up. But now I want to edit those settings - instead of always saving, I'd like the download button to just open the file instead. I can't figure out how to edit that default 'Do this always for these types of files' settings - please help!

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.

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,

Ahmed El-Meadawy http://democracygame.wordpress.com/
