Change the userChrome.css file to below and save it in the same location (see last post)...

Simplified and corrected code:

Code:

/* hide firefox button */
#appmenu-button-container {
position: fixed !important;
top: 99999px !important;
}
/* adjust tabbar position */
#navigator-toolbox[tabsontop="true"] #TabsToolbar {
padding-left: 0px !important;
padding-top:1px !important;
padding-right:115px !important;
}

I am quite excited about Firefox 4.0, and looking forward to it. More so, after reading the positive response here from many members. Really looking forward to it. Any idea about the release date?

Probably somewhere in November this year provided you don't encounter too many buds. :D

Whoa! November? :eek:. I think it might be sooner, since the beta was out this month. But yea, if there are issues encountered, then it might get delayed. Firefox 3.6 release was a delayed one, but the result was that the final product was very stable. So, looking forward to a stable Firefox 4.0.

Seems like Firefox 3.7 will be released before Firefox 4.0? I saw 3.7 alpha5 on the download site, along with 3.6.8, and Firefox 4.0 beta 2.

Hi,

For anyone interested, some bad news about Firefox 4:
Mozilla plans to silently update Firefox (security patches)

The good part is:
Quote:

Mozilla will let users change the default silent service to the more traditional mode, where the browser asks permission before downloading and installing any update.
I hope this includes the option to uncheck auto-updates and check manually.

Ehhh..., it turns out both are good news for me. Personally I don't like to be reminded of updating too often. It should update automatically for me.

I am not in favor of the silent updates feature, which Mozilla have supposedly taken from Google Chrome. I would like to know about the updates that are being done, and the changes that have been made. I want things to be in my hand.

Also, I think this feature would introduce another process in Firefox, like the Google updater that Chrome has. I really dislike those kinds of processes that always run in background, and take up unnecessary memory.

I read the article and it says that a wide number of users have complained that Firefox updates too often. These are the people that want that the software should just keep running and not bother them with updates and all. These are the people which are not bothered about security and all. Even if such users are wide in number, I don't think its a good idea to just introduce this service because of such demands.

With changing trends, I think Mozilla will incorporate this, and it surely is a bad news, at least for me. The good thing though is that Mozilla will keep the silent update optional. I think I will opt to be reminded first.

Still, this is a change I dislike.

With growing competition, Mozilla are following the copy-trend, which is not good, and which I did not wanted to see Mozilla taking up... but sigh, nothing can't be done. Everywhere it is the same... just follow the trend.
There is nothing originality left anywhere.

Yeh, I'm one of them. :D That's why another good thing about online apps is that you don't need to bother about updates. If the developer finds any hole, they will patch it up automatically when I access them. :)

Came across this:
Make your old add-ons work with Firefox 4

No personal experience.

Hi,
I recently downloaded the portable version of Firefox 4/ beta 3 to give it a whirl without messing up my Firefox 3.6.8 settings.
Besides a lot of my favorite extensions and themes not working with the latest beta, I noticed that I can't run Firefox 3.6.8 & 4.0.b3 side by side.
Anyone else noticed this and maybe found a work around?

I also couldn't make a couple of custom settings with userChrome.css to work (like background image).
Any ideas?

@vasa1
I'm going to try that config hack to see if I can get my extensions to work.

Thanks in advance.
