When I am in Fullscreen mode, the toolbar at the top disappears and only appears when you mouse-over the top of the screen.

Is there a setting somewhere so that when I go to fullscreen mode, I can choose to keep the address bar, tab bar and the bookmarks bar visible (not auto hide)?

I seem to be in the beta channel. Which I am finding that for my busy lifestyle, has too many incompatability issues with add ons and extensions. I don't have time to keep finding and waiting for new solutions and upgrades from your developers. I just upgraded to firefox 7 and lost some add ons that I'd rather still have.

1. can I just go back to firefox 6.3.4 or wherever I was

2. should I switch to some "slower" upgrade channel, and where would I find this?

I have been having this problem for quite some time now and it finally bugged me enough to post about it. Anyway, on the Gawker Media sites (specifically Deadspin for this example) embedded videos from Viddler show a "Video not found" error message. However, if you get the link from the video and watch it directly it works fine. Also if you go to viddler.com and watch any video, they work fine. It appears as though something is messed up in how Firefox handles the embedding of the videos. Not sure if it is an HTML5 thing, a Gecko thing, or what but it works fine in G0ogle Chrome.

Here is a link of an example of what I am talking about: http://deadspin.com/5833185/espn-is-airing-a-tv-commercial-for-grantland and if you get the link for the video and go to it directly it works fine: http://cdn.static.viddler.com/flash/as3/full-publisher.swf?ref=&key=8ed093e8 The actual link was: http://www.viddler.com/embed/8ed093e8/ but I had to change it to http://www.viddler.com/player/8ed093e8/ based on advice from: http://www.viddler.com/forums/bugs/7491/

I am running Firefox v7.b1 and I tried it both with and without my add-ons enabled. My Flash and all other plugins are up to date. I had the exact same problem with Firefox v6 as well. Please fix this issue. Thanks

I am using Firefox on my 27" IMac as the default browser, and it works well. I need it to default to a more zoomed in setting. I know I can zoom in using "Command +", but I am compelled to do this after every screen. How can I change the default screen setting for a larger display of Firefox every time, consistent with the large and fine pixeled display at 2560x1440?

I am using Firefox 7.0, Mac OSX 10.7.1, on a mid 2010 27" IMac with an I7 cpu and 16Gb of RAM.

Thanks!

Since I upgraded to Firefox 7.0 in the last month, my CPU has been running at 100% or higher off and on. I've turned all my extensions off (Adblock Plus, NoScript, Flashblock, Ghostery, Leechblock, WOT), and it's still doing it randomly. It gets to the point where my CPU is running incredibly hot, and I've started forcing the software to close before it can get too overheated.

Any help or insight would be greatly appreciated!!!

The Sun Java Addin is always disabled with FF 7. What gives?

I installed the latest Java Runtime Environment 7.0.0.147 (x86) but no luck. :(

It is really annoying to update an FF these days because of these incompatibility issues. Mozilla needs to work closer with other software developers to ensure that they have all the add-ins compatible at the time of release :(

Can the "Firefox first-time run after update" (aka. "What's New" and "Add-on compatibility check") be disabled?

We plan to deploy a Firefox update on our campus. The issue I have is this: after the update, the "Add-on Compatibility checker" pops up, then the "What's new" page shows up on the first start after the update. The issue here: we use Deep Freeze to prevent the kiddos from doing any software-based mischief on the machines. But if we push the update out at night, during the maintenance windows, they will be frozen back in pre-first-time-run mode. Thus, each time a student boots the PC up after that, they will get both the compatibility popup and the "What's new" page.

Is there a way I can disable that during the upgrade, so the students will not have to click those 2 items away? I would like for Firefox to just silently disable any incompatible add-ons and not to display the "What's new" page. I found ways to do that, but they involve editing omni.jar and such. I would rather have an official, documented way of doing this.

Thanks!!
