Someone asked some days ago when the third-party add-on installation permission feature would be implemented. It has landed on Aurora ( FF 8 ), along with other features:
I was wondering why they didn't implement the same "load on-demand" feature, similar to the one provided by Bar Tab extension and the panorama feature. They did now:
To activate this feature, select ‘Don’t load tabs until selected’ in the General preferences.Restore tabs on-demand: For users that have lots of tabs open, we’ve added a preference that allows tabs to load on demand, resulting in faster start-up times when windows are restored.

I lost my menu bar; this is the bar with File, Bookmarks, Help etc. But when I press "Customize", I see the Menu Toolbar. When I right click on the bar, there is no option to enable the Menu Toolbar. This is firefox version 6.0. I am running Xubuntu 11.04. Any ideas?
Note: Pressing the Alt-button does not bring up the menu bar.

Did you push F11 ?
However, and this is my question, I tried to put a launcher for it on my Desktop, using the command "profilemanager-bin" without the quotes of course. When I click on the launcher, I get this error message:I extracted it to my home directory, and am following the instructions as detailed in https://developer.mozilla.org/en/Pro...rofile_ManagerCode:There was an error launching the application. Details: Failed to execute child process "profilemanger-bin" (No such file or directory)
I can start it by navigating and drilling down to the file profilemanager-bin and then double clicking it (per the instructions in the link), but when I try the command in the terminal I get "command not found", or in a launcher, I get that error message.
How can I create a launcher for it instead of tediously navigating for it every time? (Not a big deal since I don't use it much right now, but would be nice to have it in a launcher, plus there may come a time when I want to use it more frequently.)
I don't like the fact that firefox 6 is out, but debian sid still has 5

I would like to know if anyone else can reproduce a problem with Tab Groups (Panorama)?
- First create two different groups and add a couple of pages to them.
- Then click a page inside a group so it maximizes
- Move your mouse without clicking the page and check if everything is highlighted
It appears to me that the pages comes out from Panorama as if the left-mouse button is already clicked on the page, thus highlighting the text while you move the mouse.
These are my updated Firefox benchmarks, showing the performance improvement of the upcoming FF 7:
I saw on lifehacker that someone mentioned that they had upgraded from 3.* to 6 using the same profile, and making a new profile made firefox quicker and less memory hungry.
Is this primarily for windows or will it help with firefox on ubuntu?
