    Re: how can I make firefox 4 look like windows?

    Actually I prefer your Firefox 4 picture for Ubuntu over my Firefox 4 in Windows. To each his own, I guess.

    Edit: Stupid me - I have been using Firefox for years and didn't even know I could change its appearance. I guess that's because its default has been fine up to version 4. I've got it the way I want it now.

    You would need to use an emerald theme to get a transparent window border. There are about 25 themes currently compatible with FF4 , but they won't give you transparency .

    Actually if you go to System>Preferences>Appearance You can change the windowing environment buttons to "look" windowsish
    Any thing other than that would be themes from mozilla.

    I tried uninstalling and reinstalling but its still the same. do you know a fix?
    Yes, it is a known bug in Flash-Aid 2.0.5, which has already been fixed in 2.0.6 and approved by Mozilla today. So all you need is to update your extensions via Firefox or download the new one. Sorry for the inconvenience.

    Try starting Firefox in safe mode. Could be another extension causing this behavior.

    The firefox-stable ppa has a 64bit build for Lucid. I haven't used 64bit for a while, but they usually work fine.

    Depends. Some extensions authors like to keep the extensions updated since the first beta came out. Some prefer to wait for the final version to upgrade their extensions and some projects are simply abandoned.

    Check the extensions page at Mozilla site to see the last time they were updated. If they haven't been updated for more than a year, then most likely they will not be updated. You can also try to force the compatibility. See my first post.

    That depends on the tab content, but Firefox 4 is a lot faster and should handle it.

    I would recommend using BarTab extension. You need to get version 2.1b2, which is compatible with FF 4.

    https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/fir...rtab/versions/

    That extension allows to prevent the tab contents from being loaded until you actually click the tab. This is extremely useful for those who work with many tabs open all the time and reduce startup time a lot.

    "Firefox (en-GB) is incompatible with Firefox 4.0)"

    Ubufox too, but I can't see what Ubuntu integration can actually improve?

    the closest you can get without much hassle would be with the strata relodad theme here https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/fir...rata-reloaded/

    With your image in comparison I have to admit the Ubuntu original theme is far better.

    Thanks! I'll check out my favorite extensions.

    If things look good, then I'll upgrade.
