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 upgraded from FF 3.6.15 to FF 4. It says it's "up to date", but it's exactly the same (except many of my addons not working, which was to be expected). Tabs are in the same place, there's no new button to consolidate the menu bar, there's no new nothing! I've tried upgrading 5 times now, with the same result (even restarted the computer each time). I use WinXP, sp3.

When I upgraded to Firefox 4 my Bookmarks toolbar was still there but instead of going across the entire screen, on the right side is the drop-down Bookmarks menu (with options Show All Bookmarks, Bookmark this Page, and all my bookmark folders). When I turn the Menu Bar back on it disappears from this place since it is in the Menu Bar instead. I would like to have the Menu Bar hidden, but I don't want the Bookmarks menu taking up room in my Bookmarks toolbar either. Is there any way to move it (or remove it)?

In Firefox 3, when I happened to close the program on having multiple opened tabs, Firefox asked me if I wanted to save and remember the opened tabs, so that I could retrieve them at the next Firefox restart. Firefox 4 does not do this anymore. Is it because I have not configured it correctly somehow, or is this normal? How can I recover this function? Thanks in advance, Andrea

I like Firefox 4, but a very important feature that I loved that was only even in Firefox was not to be found in 4.0 but it was in 3.

Firefox would automatically redirect me to pages that would often appear first in Google when I typed them in the location bar. For example, if I typed ps blog it would b=me to the PlayStation blog, if I typed gmail, it'd bring right to Gmail, ect. But not it's just searching for what I type. When I type gmail it will just bring up a google search of gmail.

I tried to see if changing some options in about:config but nothing worked so I reset what I changed.

Please help! I'm debating whether to go back to v. 3.6.16!
