    All sorted now. Shame they don't offer you the option of using the 'Classic' view when installing.

    How often does your average (and I stress average here. I mean like your Mum, not those more like ourselves who want more from our browsers) use any of the functions in the menu bar? At most, people regularly use their bookmarks and occasionally history, which have a sidebar. Your average person isn't interested in the 'View Source' or 'Page info' options, so they've been hidden by default. You can turn them back on if you want, but most people don't want them, so they're not there.

    This approach makes software simpler for the less technically inclined. They can get started and get what they want from it much easier and without distraction this way.

    It's a relatively common approach to interface design these days, and it makes a whole lot of sense when you think about it.
    fair point but they also hide the bookmarks menu by default though ive managed to add it to the far right of the bookmarks toolbar

    I like it so far, only been using it for about 30 mins but the only thing that has disappointed me is the lack of a status bar. I used to have this switched on so i could monitor the progress of a page loading. Now i just have to wait. Blergh!

    It shows me the status with a little green bar on the tab, and I'm pretty sure it did it even before TabMixPlus went on (although you should add that anyway)

    More importantly have they cut down on the bloat and stopped it crashing all the time? Recent versions of Firefox since 3.5 have felt like a poor copy of IE and I've moved onto Chrome now, much faster and less buggy

    I don't think any progress has been made with either GPO support or a native MSI. However, you can still centrally manage preferences using autoconfig.

    I like the App Tabs in FF4..

    FF4-App-Tabs.PNG

    Right Click a tab and it "Pins" it - making it available every time you open FireFox
