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.

and found FF did not copie All of my bookmarks...so i deleted them...thinking I could take the same steps again (copie the bookmarks again). This is not possible!! If I click the file button, the "import"line/text (so to speak) is light gray, and I can't click it....so I'm not able to copy them anymore to FF for a 2cnd time. Is there anyone who has an idea how to fix this?! Thanx, Debora

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.

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.
