How do I move the menu bar to the top centre of the screen, between the Firefox page message and the minimise button (I have W7, but the Firefox button did not appear)?

First, I have Windows 7, but I did not get the Firefox button at top left. Instead, I have a Firefox summary message about the page I am on. I cannot alter or remove this message: it is not a toolbar.

Hence, there is unfilled blue space between this page summary at top left and the page control buttons at top right. I would like to move the menu bar into this space so that I can gain space vertically, by cutting two bar lines to one. (Or, I want to incorporate the message bar into the menu bar.) But the menu bar does not seem to be movable. I want to keep the menu bar open. So approximately 4 percent of the visible page is always wasted blue space. Help please.

In Firefox v3.6* whenever you closed the browser you were asked if you wished to save your open tabs so that they reopened next time you launch Firefox. Even when updating extensions/add-ons and being forced to restart Firefox this would happen. It was very useful but in v4.0.* this functionality no longer appears to exist.

Why doesn't the back button have a dropdown to jump back multiple levels in Firefox 4? Is there an option to re-enable that?

Before I upgraded to Firefox 4, the back button (as it is in every other browser under the sun,) had a dropdown so you could skip one tier of going back and drop back multiple levels. This is especially important when there is a site redirecting you and you can't rewind past it with single Back clicks. However, FF4 doesn't have this -- at least not by default -- and I don't see it anywhere in the options to add it. Is it hiding somewhere I haven't found, or was that removed?

In the previous versions of Firefox, there was a small arrow button attached to the back/forward buttons. Clicking this arrow showed a menu of the last 10 sites you visited and allowed you to jump back or forward, without having to press the back button 5 times, for example, to get to the fifth last site you visited. Where did the little arrow go? Can I turn it back on somehow?

The diagram on http://www.mozilla.com/en-US/firefox/central/ shows lots of nice features but none of them are actually present in my browser. No button with all the menu options, no bookmark or favorite button to right of Home button. All the nice features seem to be fiction. What is up with that?

BTW, my version number as displayed in Help>About Firefox, is 4.0.1.

I often rely on my Norton Toolbar for sites, and it does not work with the new updates. Can I uninstall recent Mozilla updates until this add-on works with Mozilla, or am I stuck? Thanks!

It's probably really easy to figure this out and uninstall the updates but, well, I'm slightly tech-illiterate! I use my Norton Toolbar a lot for those sites I visit infrequently, and this non-compatibility issue is the same reason I stick with Mozilla over Chrome, but now I can't even use my Norton information with Mozilla. Thanks.
