After upgrading to Firefox 12, my Tab Bar has reverted back to being on top of the address bar.

How do I make it go back below the address bar and quick links?

All of the information that I have found seems to be out-of-date.

Ever since upgrading to version 12.0, whenever I click on certain links the browser just "reloads" the same page I am on rather than loading the new page in the same tab. When this happens it's not opening the link in a new tab or window, instead just for a second the tab I am on says "connecting" and has the circular busy indicator, and then I'm right where I was before. In order actually follow a link I'm having to context click and then click Open in a new Tab.

On a lot of websites the links follow as usual and open the new page in the same tab. Others don't however, such as the search results page from google. I'm wondering if this is something to do with the new anti-duplicate tab feature, and if so, how do I disable that? I'm on OSX 10.6.8. Thanks.

Since I updated to Firefox 12 I cannot change my homepage to 'use current pageS' > the only displayed option is singular 'use current page'. And even that one does not work properly. If I focus on a different 'current page' the previous 'current page' still remains my homepage. The problems started after I updated to Firefox 12 last night before going to sleep. Overnight the very very annoying ASK.COM toolbar was automatically installed and set as my homepage. No idea how - I didn't want and/or do it. And when I finally had re-created my set of 15 tabs that I use as my homepage, I could not 'make them my homepage'. Even after uninstalling Ask.com completely there was still the option to select ONE page as homepage. What went wrong? How to solve it?

In an online game I play, the ablilty to reload several pages rapidly is key. To achive this we would go into offline mode, click the attack button on 4 pages, go online, hit reload all tabs then hold enter on the "To display this page, Firefox must send information that will repeat any action (such as a search or order confirmation) that was performed earlier." box, and it would rapidly hit yes to each box, sending 4 attacks to land at the same second.

But now it just does the one box then stops, making me try to just click it as fast as I can with my mouse. Pausible to achive still, but not as acurate at all. My keyboard settings are set to repeat as rapidly as possible, I've had experience doing this for years in the game, and it worked a hour or two ago when i did it, then fire fox asked me to update and afterwards its not doing what it use to.

After upgrading from Firefox 11 to 12 I'm having serious problems with Firefox over-caching pages.

For example if you: Go to a URL where you can enter comments. If after comments are entered you are sent back to the same URL Firefox is showing the old page (without your new comments). You have to do a refresh to see the new page (with the new comment)

Even if the page has PHP headers: header('Cache-Control: no-cache, no-store, must-revalidate'); header('Pragma: no-cache'); header('Expires: 0');

Firefox ignores this too.

My bookmarks are sorted A-Z; after the last folder (W in my case) the individual bookmarks are properly sorted A-Z, all of which is as it should be. However, after the last properly sorted bookmark, there is a horizontal line and sorting of the folders starts again. This sort is not a 100% dupe of the first sort, but most of it is. What is the meaning of the horizontal line and why the two separate sorts? How can I get all of the bookmarks (above and below the line) to sort as a single list from A to Z?

I just updated to the latest version FF 12. After the update I can't open tabs anymore. There isn't even a button to open a new tab. The "Open link in New Tab ..." command opens the link in a new window instead.

It doesn't seem like a configuration problem. I was just wondering if a patch or fix update will be coming out soon?

In the meantime I have to use Chrome as a backup, and it's kind of a drag. :(
