In Firefox 4 the "close tab" button does not appear in the "File" pull down.

This button does appear in Firefox 3.6.16 but is now gone.

I need it when I have two windows open, each with one tab open and I want to close one window.

The only option presented to me is "Quit" which closes both windows...

This does NOT happen every time Firefox opens. It happens every time my computer opens.

On some news websites such as huffingtonpost.com, the main articles are associated with a photo. When you place your cursor on the upper right hand corner of the photo, a "Quick Read" option is shown. Clicking on that brings up a brief summary of the article. The Quick Read option appears in FF3 but does not now that I have installed FF4.

I am using FF 4.0.1 and have been a FF user since the earliest version released - never really had any issues UNTIL FF 4.0.1.

Every time I start up FF now, I get the error message: "The proxy server is refusing connections". I am not using a proxy server.

I have to go to Tools>Options>Connection Settings to select the "No Proxy" option EVERY TIME I start up FF. It does not remember this setting and keep resetting itself to think I'm using a proxy server. This must a be bug and I've seen many others post about this issue but haven't really found a workable solution as yet.

I have tested with Chrome and Explorer and don't have this problem with those browsers.

If there is a fix for this incredibly annoying, time-wasting problem, please share it.

Thanks

In Firefox 4, How could I move the personnal bar above tabs? Is it possible? Because personaly with the new tabs bar on top I find that it should be better to have my bookmarks on top of this. Thanks by advance. (ps: off topic, I just don't understand why removing things from the user: dropdown history list in the forward/backward buttons wihtout giving him the choice somewhere..)
