I began on the Web with the NCSA Mosaic browser. I then progressed through Netscape Navigator and into Mozilla ("Mosaic killa") and the original Firefox betas. O, how I wax nostalgic for the "good old days" back before Satan discovered the Internet and decided to condemn us all to eternal damnation via the advent of tabbed browsing.

I gave tabs a chance. They only caused clutter, confusion and consumption of screen real estate. Anything that could be done in a new tab could be done much better in a new window. I've been biding my time, waiting for the majority of Web users to realize that tabs were useless and foolish, but alas, the majority of Web users are apparently... useless and foolish.

The next great crime to be committed was for the first Firefox option to change from New Window to New Tab. It took me nearly a year to overcome my habitual clicking on the first option, unintentionally opening a new tab, then having to waste time closing it and going back to carefully scroll down to the next option of New Window.

We were given SOME reprieve with the options to uncheck "Always show the tab bar" and "Open new windows in a new tab instead," but what we really needed was an option to "Open new TABS in a new WINDOW instead." Better yet, one that would say, "Completely disable tabbed browsing and remove all 'tab' options from menus and hotkeys."

Now the Apocalypse is upon us, and with Firefox 23, we are forced to have a stupid TAB at the top of our browser window. We should NOT need to use an add-on or manual code to make it go away. I have trodden the path of righteousness for as long as I could muster, but yea, I grow weary, and the Dark Side is calling me to finally click that box that says "Install Google Chrome."

As for my question.... If I were to join a dating site, should I be upfront and admit my shameful browser choice to prospective partners in my profile, or wait until we know each other better so they are more willing to accept such a flaw in my moral character?

I use to have a dropdown menu for my bookmarks set up above my bookmarks toolbar. I believe it was the manage bookmark menu. how do I get this back? Its sudden disappearance has frustrated me greatly, and I would very much like it back. I preferred using it instead of hitting ctrl+b to open the side bar. I hate that side bar. I do not want to be forced to use the side bar. I want my manage bookmarks button back. How do I get it back?

When I click on "search tools," the options are no longer displayed (for ex., the tool that allows one to do a date-limited search or to search for videos of varying lengths). I happened to have one search page open prior to updating, and the drop-down menus for the search tools still appear on that page, but if I click on them, the menu doesn't drop down, so I can't change the options. When I do an image search, the results page only displays 20 or so images, and the rest of the results show up only as grey rectangles w/out any image. The search tools are working normally in the other browsers I have installed, but Firefox is my default browser (and I'm happy with that), so I'd like to fix the problem. I'm not sure whether it's associated w/ the updates I made yesterday, but that's the only thing I can think of that's changed. Prior to that, the search tools were working properly.

RE: TABS ARE WINDOWS! The Windows bar already functions as a tab bar. Those tabs are called "windows." So, I find Firefox tab windows superfluous. How can I disable them completely from Firefox 23? I don't need what is essentially TWO windows bars covering up the entire width of my widescreen monitor's image! I already have a Windows bar at the bottom of my screen and, if I really wanted to, I could change ITS position to the top of the screen, so that it would LOOK like the Firefox tab windows bar. Firefox TABS are, essentially, a superfluous SECOND WINDOWS BAR.

Here are my reasons for why I'd rather use Mozilla's Firefox, than Microsoft's Internet Explorer or Google's Chrome. I love and admire Firefox for Mozilla's intent on good security, for Firefox's Personas add-on, and for Firefox's free use of the Ad-Block add-on which, as you know, has the distinct virtue of reducing screen clutter--the last of which is my motive for wanting to get rid of the SUPERFLUOUS Firefox tabs "windows" bar. I am dreadfully sick of companies forcing miscellaneous bars (mostly representing marketing campaigns trying to sell me something) into my browser (and down my throat) every time I download something. (In case you haven't guessed, I am deliberately referring to your Firefox tabs bar as a "Firefox tabs 'windows' bar," because TABS are WINDOWS!)

After installing version 23, I went to About:Config to change the placement of the tabs to not on top. But now the tabs are centered, i.e., the first tab is on the center of the screen, and other tabs follow on the right with empty space to the left of the first tab. I guess I must have accidentally reset another value. How do I reset this issue.

Hi, recently I re-installed Windows 7 due to technical issues. Until now, I have been able to read Korean on Firefox, but for some reason, now Korean characters show up as boxes. I've gone through other forums and follows all the instructions dealing with Character Encoding, but nothing seems to work. The funny thing is Korean seems to work in all other browsers, but I really prefer Firefox over the others :P Also, I've re-installed Windows several times on other computers, but this is the first time I've faced this problem. Help would be much appreciated, thank you!

Also, I've attached some screenshots in case they help. http://i.imgur.com/5NDzs6e.png http://i.imgur.com/BR9HOM4.png
