However, my upgraded browser looks just like the old one with no new features. I have upgraded two computers with the same results. Why don't I have the new features?

In the past, I used to have an auto complete function that would take me to a website even if I didn't type the entire URL.

For example, just typing "you" in the address bar would take me to youtube without any extra searching or clicking.

I know currently the "awesome bar" is similar and shows the url, but that still needs me to click and search.

On the previous version - 3.6.17, the Navigation Toolbar has arrows to go back one page, go forward one page, and a drop down tab for recent pages. The new version leaves out the drop down tab. I use it constantly. But since it is not there, I went back to the previous version. Any way this can be fixed?

When I typed in a word, for ex, "space", originally FF would take me to "google search" with all the options for "space" in that search. Suddenly, "yahoo search" butted in and my searches are redirected to that place. I went through the forums etc. They had suggested "about:config", "keyword.url". Then right clicking and setting on "reset". Well, when I do that, my "reset" function is not available. It is faded. Then, I right click on "modify", and type in the one search option for google available in forums etc:

"http://www.google.com/ig?ie=UTF-8&oe=UTF-8&hl=en&aig=0&reason=1"

From here on, when I go to awesome bar and type in "space", it does not take me to that "google search" page, but it takes me either to my own "igoogle" page, or if I sign out of igoogle, it takes me to a regular google home page.

Then, I want what I searched for to be in the google's or igoogle's search box with all the "google" search results available. '''But the search box is empty.

What to do now?

I hope that I am clear about the issue. This I could not find in the forums/help pages.

Thank you for your help.

ps. Vista, Newest updated version of FF (4).

I've had a quick look in options, but I can't see if there's a way to have the drop-down list of pages visited.

I find it useful if I want to go back to before a page where I was submitting information in a form, otherwise it gets all "Do you want to submit this again?" etc etc.
