    Given that it tells me that at leats 3 plugins I use at home and two I use at work won't work in Firefox 5, I'm ignoring this upgrade for the time being. Firefox 4 may not be perfect, but at least the tools I use work!

    BTW, does anyone know a way to disable the new stupid tab bar behaviour? I'm not a Chrome user, I don't like the Chrome-like behaviour of the tab bar, I'd rather not get used to it as the whole point of FFirefix and its addons is to tweak it to your own liking, and it's causing me to close infinitely more tabs by mistake than I ever have done before. I've not been able to find anything in about:config or on the Google, if anyone else knows a way I will be eternally grateful...

    Firefox Menu -> Options -> Menu Bar

    This turns the menu bar back on and gets rid of the Orange "Firefox" Menu
    Tabs are all along the top bar now..

    Sorry, I should have been clearer... I like the tab bar along the top like that

    What I meant was the change in FF5 (not 4) where tabs remain the same size as you close them, instead of immediately resizing to fill the tab bar. I can understand the logic with regards to closing of multiple tabs, but I have a ten year habit of doing it the old way, since Phoenix 0.7, so I'd like the old way back!
