Hi All,

This is my first post. I have just upgraded to Firefox4 from 3.6. The "go back/forward one page" button doesn't have the drop down option to select a specific page to go to. Am I missing something.

I recently upgraded to Firefox 4. In Firefox 3.6, it was set up that if i typed something into the address bar, facebook for example, it would automatically go to facebook.com. Where is this option in Firefox 4?

I like Firefox 4, but a very important feature that I loved that was only even in Firefox was not to be found in 4.0 but it was in 3.

Firefox would automatically redirect me to pages that would often appear first in Google when I typed them in the location bar. For example, if I typed ps blog it would b=me to the PlayStation blog, if I typed gmail, it'd bring right to Gmail, ect. But not it's just searching for what I type. When I type gmail it will just bring up a google search of gmail.

I tried to see if changing some options in about:config but nothing worked so I reset what I changed.

Please help! I'm debating whether to go back to v. 3.6.16!

While logging into google mail, I get a prompt to remember password. I select 'never remember password for this site'. But when I clear my cache and sign in again it prompts me again...

Why does it remember passwords (if I select that option) and not delete them when I clear my cache, but delete the preference about not remembering the password.

So how do I get it to remember the passwords I have saved and remember my preferences for not remember when the cache has been deleted. I tried deactivating 'remember passwords for sites' in options but then it doesn't remember the passwords I have already saved.

I want it to be able to remember passwords for the sites I have save passwords, then never ask me again when I log into other sites

It wasn't a problem until I upgraded to Firefox 4 as the new prompt is so big and annoying

I delete my cache multiple time daily as I design web pages and need to refresh the content.

Is there a way to export autocomplete entries to a new computer? I know how to export bookmarks and saved passwords, but what about all the information for commonly-used online forms, like name, address, phone, email, etc.? I'm using Windows XP and Firefox 3.6 now and am about to get a new computer with Windows 7. Thanks.

I installed Firefox 4 on a new computer running Windows XP, but I still have the old look and layout of Firefox. I want to use the new look with the all in one drop down menu bar.

This is a fresh install of Firefox 4 with no previous version installed. Below is what mine looks like.

I'm using Firefox 4.0 and an addon called Personal Titlebar https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/personal-titlebar/

"Anything placed on Menu Bar will be moved to Title Bar."

This is my situation http://img863.imageshack.us/f/ff4u.jpg/

I realise it may be as easy as adding a single line to userChrome.css (I know where to find it), but I have no experience with actually writing that line. Can any of you help me here? Help would be much appreciated

I got a new laptop today and in when setting it up I imported my Firefox profile from my last computer. Since I did that, the appearance in4.0 has reverted to what it looks like in 3.6.16 on the old computer. I would prefer not to delete everything and start again since there are quite a few bookmarks and the like that I use daily.

Is there a solution that I've missed? I've cleaned out my add-ons, changed the theme back to "default," and everything else I can think of, but it's still "broken." The only thing that looks "right" is that the tabs are above the address bar, and that's it.

I would like to save all of my tab groups, both for backup purposes but also for migration to another computer. How can I do this as a single operation?

The same consideration would apply to restoring all the tab groups from a previously saved session.

I checked the "What are App Tabs?" and read the following descriptions:

App Tabs notify you with a blue highlight when they change.

  • If you have Gmail set as an App Tab, for example, and you are using a different tab when a new email is received, your Gmail tab will glow.

I'm wondering the exact meaning of "change" because after I pinned Weibo.com(biggest twitter-like website in China) as an App Tab, new messages won't make the tab look different. So I want to know if there is an API to do the job or it's just the customized feature for only limited websites by Firefox itself. Thanks!

When I go to edit and click find no window opens and so I can not enter the word(s) that I am searching for on the webpage. The same result comes with using Ctrl+f. Infact, when I click on the edit menu, I noticed that Find is not followed by the usual .... Does that mean that the Find feature is not part of this newer version of Firefox and if so why?
