I am using Firefox 4.0 Beta 2 on Vista Ultimate and the browser.tabs.tabMinWidth doesn't seem to work (have set it to 150). I've restarted the browser since setting this configuration, but that hasn't had any effect.

Has this setting been deprecated/removed in Firefox 4.0?

Firefox was started with command: firefox.exe -no-remote -P FF-4.0-B2

When multiple windows of a program opens in Windows 7, they 'stack up' on the bottom toolbar. However, in Firefox 4 I get this 'stack effect' whenever I have multiple tabs. Is there anyway to make it so that each tab is just seen as a part of one Firefox program, so I don't have it stacking up.

I just upgraded to Firefox 4.0b2 from 2.6.8, and when ever I open up the history sidebar by using Ctrl+H, the text looks compressed and pixelated. It's not really a big problem, but I just want4ed to let you guys know about this problem.

Oh yeah, this also happens with the bookmarks sidebar.

With forum sites that run using vBulletin, when you mouse over the subject line of a thread in the forum, you get the first sentence or so of the post (about 80 or so characters). When browsing Forums that are running on vBulletin, prior to the installation of Firefox 4 Beta 2, this works. However, after I upgraded from Firefox 4 Beta 1 to Beta 2, this no longer worked. Does anyone know a fix for this, or is this a bug in Beta 2? I've checked other sites that use vBulletin, and they have the same problem.

I navigate to Gmail in FF 3.6.8 or 4.0 and log in. The site begins to load but after about 3 seconds it crashes the browser. The crash appears to be tied to the calendar sidebar widget loading, but that may just be a coincidence of the timing.

I have uninstalled and reinstalled Firefox 3.6.8. That didn't help.

I loaded Firefox in safe mode, disabled / uninstalled all the plug-ins and that didn't help.

So I installed 4.0 to see if that would fix it and it hasn't.

I am on a Dell XPS 1530 with Windows Vista.

I'd like set firefox to download directly to the file without saving downloaded part to Temp folder.

e.g.: I'm downloading file ubuntu-10.04-i386.iso, firefox makes 2 files in selected download folder ubuntu-10.04-i386.iso and ubuntu-10.04-i386.iso.part. Earlier when firefox downloaded file saved downloaded part to file ubuntu-10.04-i386.iso.part but nowadays it saves downloaded part to some Temp folder on System partition. Thanks for support
