With no extensions enabled, FF4b2 hangs after a short while. I don't really know how to get more information on this.

Another way to hang FF is to open the add-on manager and click "Update add-ons"

This happened

Every time Firefox opened

== I upgraded to b2 from FF4b1 and tried to upgrade add-ons

In the latest edition of FireFox 3, my ability to log-in or provided feedback to forums at various website (e.g. newspapers: WSJ, local) became disabled. Either the log-in/feedback buttons don't show or they don't work. I upgraded to FireFox 4, hoping that would solve the problem. It didn't. However, using Chrome, I don't encounter the problem. What has happened to my FireFox browser??

For example, this link (http://www.coloradoan.com/) is the home page of my local paper. The white area, just above the headline box, should contain my profile and picture information, but it's missing. If I use Chrome, it's there. What gives?

Just upgraded to FF4.

When i start it up, all the menus (File, Edit, bookmarks, etc) are displayed with all UPPERCASE characters. I've tried disabling all add-ons, creating a new profile, deleting registry entries, fresh install. Nothing I do fixes it. When I go back to 3.6, menus look fine.

I updated to Firefox 4 today, and was generally pleased - until I restarted firefox4, it didn't remember my open tabs (just has 1 blank one), gets rid of my bookmarks toolbar, and has two Title bars.

when i enable the menu bar, all options are greyed out. but when i disable it again, the bookmarks come back and the 2nd title bar goes away. the whole thing is weird and annoying. here's a picture to help visualize: screencap

thanks for any advice
