I only have to click my tabs once to switch between web pages. To open a new tab, I just hit "control +C" and it opens one immediately. I like having them lined up at the top of my screen instead of at the bottom.

Is there a better way to switch between windows?

It use to be that I didn't care for tabs either because I'm use to using the alt-tab buttons to switch between windows. However you can do the same with tabs only use crtl-tab to switch between your tabs. Here are some Firefox shortcuts...

Ctrl+T               Open a new tab
Ctrl+W               Close the current window or tab
Ctrl+Shift+T       Undo close tab (re-open the last closed tab)
Ctrl+Tab               Switch to the next tab
Ctrl+Shift+Tab       Switch to the previous tab
Ctrl+[0-9]               Switch to the 1st, 2nd, 3rd, 4th, etc. tab
/                       Open the "Find Text As You Type" widget (bottom of screen)
'                       Open the "Find Links As You Type" widget (bottom of screen)
Ctrl+G               Find the next occurrence of a search phrase
Ctrl+Shift+G       Find the previous occurrence of a search phrase
Ctrl+K               Move cursor to the Web Search widget (top right of screen)
Crtl+F                    Activates the find option (F3 will go to next find)
Alt+D                    To bring you to the address bar

A few months back I installed the Firefox addon for PDF that allows me to choose to download or open a PDF. It upgraded last week, and added a new feature. I tried it out and it really works. It will allow you to save a web page as a PDF document. Saves a lot of copy and paste and you don't loose the formating. If you're a web page saver like me, this is very helpful. I also use the scrapbook addon but for some things PDF is better.

I installed scrapbook for firefox a couple of weeks ago after seeing the tutorial on youtube. Scrapbook is suppose to let you save things as pdf's but I couldn't get the feature to work and later I couldn't find the file location or view it without going through firefox first. So I went back to pdfcreator to save webpages.

However, I'll have to check out the pdf addon now that you've recommened it.

Any problems with the new version of Firefox?

Also, I am having problems with flash in Firefox. Anyone else?

I ended up eliminating flash in Firefox. I do have the newer version of Firefox, and not an older one. Do not know if that will make a difference. The flash was keeping me from running certain things that I needed to run.

I've been using the new Firefox since the day it came out. I have not had any problems with it. According to the articles I've read it's suppose to be more secure (relatively). 3.1 will be out soon to compete with google's new browser called "Chrome" and Microsoft's new IE 8.0  These apparently offer a better way of browsing the web anonymously and supposedly Firefox 3.1 will be their catch up in this area.

As far as flash goes... I have not had any problems. I try to keep the flash version up to date and I also use the addon called "flashblock" which allows you to decide if you want flash to play on the page you're looking at.

I updated my addons today and now I have a permanent Google request to download information from my computer for their site ratings.  I cannot close it out since I refused their request! Thanks Mozilla and Google. Just love those companies that don't allow you to close out their screen. Just like the pornography junk that comes in unwanted and does not allow you to close with the "x".  The Illinois governor has a lot of company these days.

Firefox has begun "a new thing." When I click on Bookmarks to go to a website, it wants to bookmark Firefox startup page. It is quite consistent. Recently I uninstalled Keyscrambler until a better version is issued. That is the only thing that is different. WDYT?

Did this just start recently or has it been doing it since you've updated firefox? I'm running version 3.05 with no problems.

Keyscrambler!!!  thanks for the reminder... I knew I was missing a plugin.

No, not since updating Firefox, since removing Keyscrambler. It is exceedingly consistent.

I have had both for quite some time, as well - then all of a sudden Keyscrambler started scrambling programs outside its realm, so I suspended it for the time being.

Yes, I have had problems too in the past. Not with what you are having with this particular situation, but I have had programs or different things start happening all of a sudden which I never had problems before.

Right now Firefox is working fine, so I am ignoring those little popup boxes telling me there is an upgrade. When a major upgrade comes along, then I'll do it and hope that all my addons will also upgrade.

This is a problem with many users. See the MozillaZine forum: http://forums.mozillazine.org/viewtopic.php?f=38&t=886965&st=0&sk=t&sd=a

Thus far, there is no good, long-lasting fix.

Firefox 3.5 is now available.

You can download it here http://www.mozilla.com/en-US/

If you have it already - just click on help, then check for updates.

For those concerned with privacy this version has a really neat feature called "private browsing". In this mode doesn't leave an tell-tale signs of your online activity.
