    why do Tabs in Firefox 4 not cover titlebar in Linux?

    At my work Windows is used and Firefox 4 was installed today. The Tabs cover up the titlebar like in Google Chrome. Tabs aren't covering up the titlebar in ubuntu. Wats going on?

    Re: Firefox 4 Adblock Plus Add-on

    I can confirm that it's working for me, so the site isn't lying to you. I'm using my old Fx 3.6 profile, and adblock's still installed from that (v1.3.3).

    Which version are you trying to install? Are you using a new profile, or an old profile?

    Re: Firefox 4 Adblock Plus Add-on

    When you say it isn't there, are you saying it was removed from the add ons list or just removed from the interface?

    I installed FF4 my windows/tri-boot machine just to fool around with it. I like the tabs above the browser, not above the address bar. I tab switch more that play with the address bar. Feh on four. (Unless there is a place to config where you want it)

    Uninstall NoScript, then install the newest version.

    Firefox 4 no longer extracts the extension xpi file prior to installation. It loads the extension directly from the xpi. So perhaps you experiencing issues with the old extracted folder in your old profile. Not sure tho.

    Re: why does Mozilla maintain multiple versions of Firefox?

    Though there are stable and development releases it is the users choice weather to install or not. Development releases are needed for testing what are to become the next updates in the stable release.

    Re: Firefox 4 Mega Thread

    Is there a way to move the tabs above the browser window instead of above the address bar? I tab switch more that type something in the address bar. I am still using 3.6.15 on this machine, I just tested it quickly on a Windows machine.

    Yeah. I was bummed when I saw GTK firefox. Windows looks a lot better. Plus the TABS cover up the Titlebar in Windows but so far not on my Linux box :*(

    The problem is that title bar are controlled by window managers so IMO you can't get rid of it from the program itself. I am looking for a solution too.

    Re: Firefox 4 Adblock Plus Add-on

    By "not there", do you mean it isn't in the list of installed extensions? Or you just don't see an icon in the bottom right corner? Do you even have a bottom right corner any more?
