    another complaint

    when you click on something that normally opens a little mini window like for the add picture on here... it dims the screen and opens a fucking horrible looking little square that is about as pleasing to the eye as a fucking used tampon :puke:

    mozilla definitely pooched this version of firefox
    so far i am not at all impressed



    and i cant get rid of this stupid fucking "Bookmark this page" star that is polluting the damn address bar

    no more multi page back or forward... ** wait never mind... its there you just have to right click for it now **

    does it do the stupid 404 hijack like chrome does?

    that and the wonky ssl trust are the reasons i dont use chrome as my regular browser. all our crap at work is self signed SSL and my primary monitoring tool has 8 self signed ssl windows inside it. sucks bawls even when you follow the docs for adding a key to your trusted chain it never works right.

    damn that was a long explanation of a short question.

    I love FireFox, but I've noticed something. Not sure if it is my laptop or what.
    A lot of the time, when I go from page to page.
    I can't go back, as if I opened a new tab versus going from page to another in the same tab.
    Odd.
    its okay because 90% of the time I open a link I always "new tab".

    no, nothing like facebook. they simply changed the look/feel of the 'alert' box.

    This has happened to me, but it seems to be site specific.

    I am pretty sure there is a setting that you can set the behavior of a link. I'm at work right now or id try and find it. All links open in new tabs for me.

    Upgraded to 4 I hate the look. Is there a skin or something to bring it closer to the old look?

    right click and check "menu bar"
    uncheck "tabs on top"
    then get the "Old Location Bar" add on
