In v3.X... you could get to prior pages viewed on a site/tab by clicking an arrow that was part of the Forward/Back navigation arrows. Clicking the arrow gave you a drop down list of the prior pages you had viewed (from that tab). That feature is missing in v6.0. Any way to get this back?

Just upgraded to FF 6.0 (or is that 4.2? :/), and got this message ""Java console is incompatible with Firefox 6.0". At first I thought it was because I was on Java 6.26, but after upgrading to 7 the problem is still there. A fairly glaring bug after so many BETAs...

You prompted me to install Firefox 6 this evening, as it addresses serious security/stability problems, but when I did this, the Rapport icon vanished from the address bar. Reinstalling the current version of Rapport has not fixed this. The same thing happened a few months ago with Firefox 5, and it took Rapport a week to develop a new compatible version. Why has this happened again? Do you not check this before launching new versions? Or, why at the very least do you not warn us beforehand that some programs will not work for X days? I'd prefer to be without the latest Firefox for a week or so rather than without Rapport - not least because my bank requires me to use Rapport.

Please advise ASAP.

i like having the menu bar on the firefox desktop, but i hate the way it has been set out. if you enable the menu bar, then it reduces the effective area available for viewing a web page. please don't copy google chrome's layout, chrome is a lousy browser. the old firefox layout is better than the new one. if you guys can't help me then i will simply use the older (3.6) version of firefox. thankyou for your time.

I initially was trying to figure out why most times I am unable to open a pdf (often labelled as "printer-friendly version") from a web page. I went to your help and was suggested to check my plug-ins by going to "manage add-ons". well, it never finishes opening, it just spins and spins until I give up. which is the same thing that happens when i try to open a pdf on a web page.

I've added 3 add-on buttons and 1 command-button to the navigation toolbar:

  1. Web of Trust
  2. Adblock Plus
  3. NoScript
  4. Full Screen toggle

When I toggle Firefox 6 to full screen these 4 buttons jump to the extreme right.

Why does Firefox 6 do that? It is somewhat annoying. This did not happen in Firefox 4.1 and earlier. Please compare the two screenshots on screenshot 1 screenshot 2
