I am using Firefox 4.0 Beta 2 on Vista Ultimate and the browser.tabs.tabMinWidth doesn't seem to work (have set it to 150). I've restarted the browser since setting this configuration, but that hasn't had any effect.

Has this setting been deprecated/removed in Firefox 4.0?

Firefox was started with command: firefox.exe -no-remote -P FF-4.0-B2

When multiple windows of a program opens in Windows 7, they 'stack up' on the bottom toolbar. However, in Firefox 4 I get this 'stack effect' whenever I have multiple tabs. Is there anyway to make it so that each tab is just seen as a part of one Firefox program, so I don't have it stacking up.

When I close Firefox, the CPU usage always rise to 100% for about 1 minute and affect my working. Then I pressed CTRL+ALT+DEL and found that 'firefox.exe" still working after closed the window and usage is 100%, which slow down all my normal processes.Sometimes I need to stop the process manually.

It will not appear in 3.6 but it jam CPU seriously in 4.0 beta but I think it should be a bug and I hope it will not appear any more after final release.

This is affecting my computer using ANY version of firefox all the way down to v2.1 (the earliest release I've tested.). The tabs and buttons are gigantic and I can't figure out why. This is with the default theme, default add-ons, and default extentions. I've uninstalled firefox, removed all mozilla/mozilla.org/mozzilla-addons registery keys and rebooted and reinstalled. No matter how many times I do this no matter what version of firefox I install it does this. This is the only program affected so I don't believe it is an issue with my PC. IE7/Opera/Chrome/Safari are all working wonderfully but I prefer Firefox for my default browser. Yes, I have a custom shell for my Windows XP but I have disabled it and replaced the original shell and it's still having the issue. Can anyone help me out?

Screenshots from FF4B1 (but remember, it's affecting any installed version). http://i28.tinypic.com/t7lw13.png http://i28.tinypic.com/4l1xqe.png http://i31.tinypic.com/2ceiw48.png

Whenever the new "Firefox" drop-down menu is enabled (i.e. "Menu Bar" is disabled under View -> Toolbars -> Menu Bar), the title bar (the area of the window adjacent to the "Firefox" button and the minimize/maximize/close buttons) blinks every so often, seemingly randomly, usually a couple of times per minute. Note that when Menu Bar is enabled, no blinking occurs. This doesn't appear to affect performance, but it is pretty annoying. I'm running Windows 7 and I have the transparency options enabled.
