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.

I downloaded Firefox 4 after reading and viewing the online ad. Unfortunately it doesn't look anything like the version i saw in the video. Is this because I run an iMac on OS X 10.5.8? There are some changes but nothing like the video said. Thanks, Craig

The tabs are above the address bar and the refresh button is at the end of the address bar but not a lot else is different. Private Browsing has to be accessed from the Tools menu. In other words, most of the features that were to be on the front screen are absent. Thanks for your assistance. Craig

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.

There is a backup button in FF4 that is larger than the round one in FF3. But to the right of the forward button there used to be a dropdown that would list the last dozen pages. Can this function be enabled in FF4 or do I need to look for a plug-in to do this. I can't believe they took it out.

I upgraded to Firefox 4 Win 7, but a needed extension is incompatible with version 4 and automatically disabled. I need to revert to the previous version of Firefox until the necessary extension is updated for compatibility with Firefox 4. I have located on my hard drive the most recent installation file, Firefox Setup 3.6.6.exe. I need to know the best way to revert to that version and preserve and transfer all my bookmarks and settings. Thanks!
