The scroll bars look and operate exactly the same as they did in Fx 22.

Is there a setting I need to turn on?

Or maybe I am confused: I am expecting "new style" scroll bars to behave like those in Safari and in other Mac native application (bouncing, and disappearing when not in use).

Last night my computer (Win 7 Dell laptop - Firefox) did an update. It restarted and when I turned it back on, the computer gave me a message that said "preparing your desktop" before I could log in. When I logged in, it was almost as if the computer was brand new - the desktop theme was new, it said my mouse was ready to use, and then it said that internet explorer 10 was updated. I clicked on Firefox as usual, expecting it to give me the screen where it asks me if I want it to restore all of my tabs, and it was the Mozilla home page and firefox was barebones in the sense that it didn't have any of my add-ons, or even the basic, file, edit, view, history, bookmarks, tools, help buttons on the screen. When I went into the history, it only had today listed, and no websites!!! I am freaking out and I really need to know how to get everything back to the way it was. I had a Personas add-on with 36 backgrounds that I adored, and I don't want to have to go back and re-download all of my add-ons, not to mention there is no way, I would be able to remember or pick up where I left off with all of those tabs I need for work. Please help me!

This morning Firefox did an update, or something, and it changed the look for the toolbars. It added a new tab, and a plus sign. I made sure that none of the "tab" options were checked in the options, none are. I downloaded an old version, removed the new version, then reloaded with the old. I did this with two older versions. I don't want anything on the top left that has anything to do with tabs. It wasn't there before this morning.

Every time I google something, in addition to getting the search result in the tab I was currently using, https://www.google.se/blank.html opens in another tab and the focus changes to the new tab. This is getting really f-ing annoying. It's annoying enough that the new tab opens, but what really frustrates me most is that it has to focus the new tab every freaking time, even tho I have "When I open a new link in new tab Switch to it automatically" (Tools > Options > Tab) unchecked. Please help before I break something expensive!

Also, sometimes a key is shown before the lock. I'm wondering if they have anything to do with my real problem, which is a sudden (1 - 2 weeks ago) inability to sign out from my Facebook account?

One other problem starting at about the time is the occurrence of yellow shading behind the toolbar.

Thanks for any clues that might help.

I may be working in one window when suddenly I get a message that says "We noticed that you may have signed in or signed out in another window. Click OK to reload your page."

I may have been working in another window but I didn't sign in or sign out over there, so I don't know why I frequently get this message.

I have taken a photo (screen shot) of the window with the message if that would help.

I can get a new tab by holding the CTRL and choosing a link on the current page. (Not a great solution).
