Hi,

Thanks for any help in advance.


Of course the new Firefox is messing with me...But I have one specific question...

Facts...

1) I own a iMac...17 inch...So I can open lots and lots of tabs at once.

2) I just rebooted my computer back to brand new.

3) I'm working on finding all my old stuff, but can't seem to find two specific items...

In the previous version, and before I rebooted, I had about 40 tabs (Including Cluster Tabs) opening-up whenever I started a browse session. But now, I can't seem to control the size of the tabs, so they get less narrow as I had them?

I've already downloaded "Vulcanize Tabs" but that's no help...I think it was a specific theme that allowed me to do this, but many of the themes don't work with this new version of Firefox.

I suspect I'll just have to wait until the themes are updated? Or, do you have a better idea?


Also...

I want to get rid of the "X" on each tab and only have a close tab button on the far right of my tabs navigation bar.


Any help?

If so, thanks again!

Ps...Is there a way to reverse my downloading of this newest Firefox version and go back to the previous one until this new one gets many of the bugs worked-out?

I mistakenly typed in my password immediately following my username and now it remembers that "username" every time I go to sign in. I do not want to delete all my saved passwords or cookies and have specifically gone in and deleted all cookies related to this specific website. How do I get Firefox to "forget" that one username?

About a week ago, Firefox started going into "work offline" mode every few minutes, knocking me off my wifi each time. Then I have to go into my list and re-select my network to get back online. I don't have any trouble with my wifi if I don't have Firefox open. Any easy fixes for someone who's not super techy? Thanks.
