FireFox is NOT Broken

Tools -> Options -> Advanced -> Browsing Options -> Hide Tab Bar When Only 1 Website Is Open.

Deselect it and you always get the tab bar. Why don't people look at the preferences before they complain?

The google bar extension is broken though.

It can't seem to remember the search words as I switch between tabs for some reason.

"It can't seem to remember the search words as I switch between tabs for some reason."

yeah well, it still beats the hell out of the tabs in IE

Hehe, that it does.

However, it would be really really nice if this worked right.

Anyone else get this behavior?

Nope, I still have an outstanding bug on Livejournal and Firefox 0.9x though.

The built-in search box, or the Google Bar extension? Because the built-in search box (which searches Google, if you'd like) remembers my search terms across tabs.

The extension.

Yeah, that Google bar extension is hosed.  And Firefox doesn't block popups nearly as well as IE + Google bar.

Firefox does a 100% job at blocking popups. Sports analogies about giving 110% aside, how could IE + Google Bar be MORE effective than 100%?

This may just be a setting I can't find, but is there a way to have more than 2 simultaneous downloads?  IE seems to handle as many as you'd like up to your available bandwidth.  Example - my cable modem connection has about 300K+ bandwidth.  With IE I could have 4 files downloading all at about 75K, but with FireFox I can only get 2 going at around 150K.

No that big a deal, just a convenience thing that I got used to doing with IE and want to do the same with FireFox.

One of the biggest bug I've noticed is whenever I click on some link, the page would sometimes leap around, and only if I click it again in that new location, it'll work.

Weird.
