Usually I can click the "open a new tab" button to open a new tab but now, when I click the button, nothing happens. I even tried right clicking and choosing the option: "New Tab", but still no tab opens. However, new tabs do open if i click a link and it leads to a new window. I'm not sure why? How can I fix this??

We are running XP, and have 3 different user accounts on one desktop. We are very excited by the Firefox4 features, but one user has much less comfort with changes, and doesn't want to lose browsing comfort in 3 before he has a chance to get used to using 4. May take a while....

Is there any way to download Firefox 4, perhaps into a new location. Or a new user account. And use this as a 'teaching tool' while still retaining 3?

Or can we upgrade to 4, redownload a version of 3, and import that user's previous bookmarks to the new download of 3, until we get him comfortable.

The answer is probably no. But if there is a creative way to do this, without another computer available, that would be great. If not, we upgrade and deal with the frustration and whining here.... 4 is too good to pass up.

Ideas? Linda

I saw that new FF 4 came out so I wanted to upgrade to it. But wanted to know if my installed add-ons on 3.6 will be usable in FF 4. Also, should I make a back-up copy of bookmarks or will they be passed on to newer version? If add-ons don't transfer what is the average time in which people usually remake their add-ons to be usable in newer versions?

Could not go back to Yahoo home page because back button inoperative.

Have reverted to FF 3.6.16, but would like to use FF 4 if possible.

I have faithfully updated Firefox on my Windows XP system and now use Firefox/3.6.16. I also run Photoshop Elements 6.0, which requires quite a bit of memory. It is currently getting slowed down because plugin-container.exe is consuming anywhere from 25% to 50% of my memory. If I use Task Mgr to shut down this task, things are much better. Is there a downloadable version of Firefox that does not include plugin-container.exe, and if so, can I replace my current version with that one?

I would love to have them all together as they used to be - much more user friendly that way. I have tried installing alternate themes, but the coding of this version over-rides the themes.

I like a minimalist toolbar with only two rows of small icons. after the last row with the Google toolbar, there's about an inch of blank space before the browser tabs. I'd prefer to have more space for the webpages.

I tried dragging and dropping and moving things around and it doesn't work. I feel that FF has a minimum height constraint and won't let me make the toolbar thinner. Is this true?

The topic tabs at the top of the page ("News", "Sport", "Life and Style" etc) are larger than they should be and make more than one row when there should be just one. Below that the whole page is squished to the far right, so most of the page is blank except for a thin colum where article headings, text and pictures truncated and unreadable. No problems with other websites, no problems with The Guardian website if I use Internet Explorer. Any ideas? Thanks. I am not sure what other information would be helpful. :(

There's not much I can do with this browser if I can't access a fundamental button like "tools." Any help would be appreciated. TIA
