    Re: Firefox 4 Mega Thread

    Thanks for your efforts to give us all an easy upgrade.

    Pitty FF doesn't use it's own window frame like in the Win7 Installation. It should be possible as Chromium does it too under Gnome.


    I had to get the Firebug Plugin from www.mozilla.com, the Add-On Updater seems to have problems connecting to the server. Well it works now, so who cares.


    Great work.

    Thanks lovinglinux for providing this information. I have now installed Firefox 4 and like what I see thus far.

    Just one question: is there a way to move the Home icon back across from the right to the left side?

    I looked through this thread, but didn't see anything (or missed it if it was there).

    Great job, also with your website and FlashAid

    Nearly all buttons can be moved to where you want. Right click on any toolbar and select Customise ... Drag'n'drop until you're happy. Watch out for the "merging" buttons like home/reload/stop which will merge or not depending on position and order.

    Okay, now I am really embarrassed

    Worked fine for the Home icon, but I cannot find the Stop and Reload icons

    EDIT: cancel that; double embarrassment time. It's been one of those days; brain freeze. All sorted now, thanks.

    Very nice... Tabs stay the same size, so I don't have to move the cursor when closing tabs individually.

    I can get rid of that silly search tool! The trick is to drag it into the customize window. Same with the Home button and etc.

    The bottom bar is called 'Add-on Bar' for those of us who prefer to keep the gmail manager down there.

    App-Tabs are teh way cool, as well.

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

    Go to Mozilla site and see what solutions do they have for this problem. I'm not sure but if Firefox 4 is still a Beta probably it will be hard to solve this.

    Don't see it. I tried firefox-stable first, and Ubuntu told me there was nothing to upgrade.

    I did not INTENTIONALLY install them side-by-side. Both times I tried this install, I said Upgrade or Update.
    Every time I hear the word "Progress" my fur bristles!

    Re: Firefox 4 Mega Thread

    since installing Fx4 I get this message when I run Update Manager:


    W: GPG error: http://ppa.launchpad.net lucid Release: The following signatures couldn't be verified because the public key is not available: NO_PUBKEY 9BDB3D89CE49EC21

    Can someone please help me figure out how to fix what's wrong? Should I uninstall Firefox?

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

    I'm not sure that everybody here understands the issue. What Arex Bawrin wants to do is not to make firefox look like the windows version but to get rid of the very top bar (the one with the minimise, maximise and close tabs on them). Look closesly at his screenshots and you will see.

    Chronium did this beautifuly, freeing up precious screen space and also creating a very pleasing look. Firefox has finaly caught up but unfortunately only on the windows version, which is a shame. I hope that mozilla fixes this at some point soon.
