Hi I just updated to FF3. In my last version of FF2 before prompted to update to 3, the address bar was obviously different!
In FF2, i typed all my usually used sites in there & they would stay there & i'd just click on them as i needed!
Now, i see that all links in sites stay in the address bar & sites that i want to stay there seem to disapear within minutes!! I types the addy for this site & the next time i used the drop down address bar, it had gone!!!
Can i alter this?? or is it possible to download FF2 & keep using that & ditch the rubbish that is FF3 & stop the prompts to update!!
There is nothing in 'recent tabs' & only half of the addresses i typed in the dropdown bar are in 'most visited'. Does it mean i have to go to bookmarks & most visited to see my sites!! that were in dropdown? Also i don't want links i click on to appear in dropdown address bar!!
I also can't get rid of my bookmarks in the dropdown bar. These are only sites i bookmarked for when i need them (rarely), thats why i keep them in bookmarks, not in my regularly used dropdown list. I c;ick on them when highlighted & they just reappear.
Looks like you will need to go back to FF2. If you need to download it again click here and select version you want from the list. Just be aware that older versions are less secure and are no longer patched !
Well i went back to 126.96.36.199 version & it does what i want! I know new don't always mean best & for me, i prefer how 2 works. I just hope i don't keep getting prompted to update. I was before & kept saying 'never' when it asked & yet each day i was!
It maybe not as secure, but thats what my up to date AV/Mal/Spyware & Firewall are for aint it?
