I upgraded to Firefox 4.0.1. It has a funky new look. Can I make it look it did before I upgraded? Thanks.

I upgraded to FF v4 for a very short period of time.

For a multitude of reasons I went back to 3.6.16

My suggestion would be to do a google for make firefox 4 look like 3.
Many must want to do the same thing because there are plenty of hits. Some seem to have some tutorials on how to do it.

I can see where mozilla tried to go and that was to try to look like chrome but it turned out to be clunky and terrible to navigate and of course almost none of my current add ons work...

Well, I downloaded 4.0 a few days ago. It proceeded to completely clog my system, made it lag all the time. After 3 days I finally said, screw it, I'm going back to 3.6. And I did and then all the trouble stopped. In the meantime, I tried every tip out there to "speed up your system" with firefox, etc. I'm convinced 4.0 is just not ready. I'm not switching anytime soon. They had a good thing and appeared to get it wrong with 4.0. Anybody else have this problem? I'm running a slightly older system with XP, but it doesn't have trouble with anything else.

I'm having my own set of problems with 4.0.1. Every time I save a bookmark, it's not remembered the next time I power up my computer. I'm really thinking of going back to FF 3.6.17

You can turn on the menubar in Firefox 4 and it makes it almost like Firefox 3.
You need to adopt to the new changes in Firefox sooner or later because they are not going to support 3.x for long.

I have been using version 4.01 of Firefox on two different machines now for about 2 days. Just be aware of a few things:

Right-click on the toolbar area and you can turn on or off the menu bar. You will also find an item in this right-click menu to put the tabs either at the top or at the bottom of the tools area.

As you found, the Norton Toolbar works in Firefox 3.6.16 and 3.6.17, but if you want to be sure that the Norton Toolbar is available in version 4.01 of Firefox, then you need Norton Internet Security 2011 or Norton 360 Version 5. You can find several discussions about this in the Norton Community Forum.

The bookmark system in Firefox is not at all as easy to handle as the favorites system in Internet Explorer. In IE, much easier to use and understand.

Note also, I have been using Firefox 3.6 on the old computer for about 4 months.

Unlike most of you I have found 4.0.1 to be a good change. Simply cause it runs faster. I could not make the switch to chrome when it came out ,but this seems to be a good mix.
