The main reason that I use Firefox 3.6 and not IE or Chrome is the bookmarks sidebar and how easy it is to create new bookmarks by clicking and dragging a tab into the bookmarks sidebar. Is this an option on Firefox 4?

If not, why the new system is better? Can you explain the assumptions behind the design of the new bookmarks system?

Is it that the typical user no longer needs to find bookmarks from a month or a year ago?

I know that my son age 13 doesn't use bookmarks at all, but then he doesn't visit very many sites.

I just downloaded Firefox 4 and i had a problem about my Norton spy-ware toolbar not being compatible, but anyway the most important thing that makes me pick Firefox over any other web browser is that i am able to save tabs and then exit. I think this was the greatest things because i could leave turn my laptop off and save power and when i got back i cold resume what i as doing. My question is just will you ever have this save tabs and exit function again or at least a way people would turn the function on by will.

How do I move the menu bar to the top centre of the screen, between the Firefox page message and the minimise button (I have W7, but the Firefox button did not appear)?

First, I have Windows 7, but I did not get the Firefox button at top left. Instead, I have a Firefox summary message about the page I am on. I cannot alter or remove this message: it is not a toolbar.

Hence, there is unfilled blue space between this page summary at top left and the page control buttons at top right. I would like to move the menu bar into this space so that I can gain space vertically, by cutting two bar lines to one. (Or, I want to incorporate the message bar into the menu bar.) But the menu bar does not seem to be movable. I want to keep the menu bar open. So approximately 4 percent of the visible page is always wasted blue space. Help please.

The diagram on http://www.mozilla.com/en-US/firefox/central/ shows lots of nice features but none of them are actually present in my browser. No button with all the menu options, no bookmark or favorite button to right of Home button. All the nice features seem to be fiction. What is up with that?

BTW, my version number as displayed in Help>About Firefox, is 4.0.1.

I look at a picture from a photo-site - size 11 MB. I decide to save this picture > right click > save image as.. The download window opens and FF downloads the picture once more which is already somewhere in FF's cache or memory.. I can see that data comes from the internet and not from a local place on my computer and the process can be rather slow, when the remote server is slow.. I find this as a waste of bandwidth.. Is it possible to avoid this behaviour?

In previeous firefox versions, next to the back button was a drop down arrow that allowed going back multiple pages. Where did it go?

In older firefox versions, there was a button that brought up a dropdown selection of the last 10 or so pages, but I can't figure out how to get it back in the new version. This is a problem because my school website uses a lot of ID-verification transition pages between links, so when I try to hit the back button, it sends me to the verification page and then right back to the page I was on, and there's no way to go back without opening up my history, something that can be a hassle if I'm looking at things in multiple tabs. Is there anything I can do?
