Whenever I switched or opened a new tab in Firefox 3.5 the tab remembered all the pages that were visited in that tab, and would show a dropdown list when I clicked the small arrow next to the back/forward buttons.

When I switched tabs the dropdown would show the pages that I used to get to the page in the second tab.
Now all tabs have their history lumped together in 1 place and I have no idea how I got to many of the places I find.

When I first open up FF, and open up new webpages, I get a pop-up message saying "2". Before I updated to FF4, the pop-up would say "The website at _____ says: 2". Has anyone heard of this before? It's getting annoying. I thought maybe it was from not updating FF but it's still here!

I've upgraded our XP pc to Firefox & I don't have the new Firefox button - I've still got the old File - Edit etc menu at the top. The Tabs etc have all changed - it's just the button that hasn't appeared. My husband has a different XP user on the same pc, and he does have the new button, rather bizarrely (since, presumably, we're both running the same software!).

When a new tab is opened via launching a URL from another application on Windows (e.g. Outlook), the tab close buttons disappear, even with only two tabs. By carefully grabbing the right window border and dragging *inwards* (i.e. making the window narrower), the buttons suddenly appear on all tabs, thus illustrating that it's not a problem with the tab widths.

I downloaded Firefox 4 after reading and viewing the online ad. Unfortunately it doesn't look anything like the version i saw in the video. Is this because I run an iMac on OS X 10.5.8? There are some changes but nothing like the video said. Thanks, Craig

The tabs are above the address bar and the refresh button is at the end of the address bar but not a lot else is different. Private Browsing has to be accessed from the Tools menu. In other words, most of the features that were to be on the front screen are absent. Thanks for your assistance. Craig

When I create a new tab and enter the URL of a site already called up on another tab, instead of downloading the site again in the new tab, Firefox switches to the tab with the site already called up. How do I turn off the "switch to tab" feature?

How do I turn off the "switch to tab" feature? Why? The site I want runs a Java program, and I want the program to run multiple times. I looked in Tools > Options > Tabs and found no way to turn off the "switch to tabs." I looked thru the entire Options and found nothing. I thought Tools > Options > Advanced might hold the key to a solution, but I found nada.

There is a backup button in FF4 that is larger than the round one in FF3. But to the right of the forward button there used to be a dropdown that would list the last dozen pages. Can this function be enabled in FF4 or do I need to look for a plug-in to do this. I can't believe they took it out.
