Firefox 4


Out of curiosity I was running Ubuntu 11.04 off a CD.
In Firefox 4 I could find no open location on the tool bar. Am I missing something?

Thanks

View -> Toolbars?

Maybe I am missing something. In my current version of Firefox I just go to file, open location and type in the URL.
I cannot see how it can be easily done in Firefox 4. In Firefox 4 when I hit file there is no open location that comes up.

So you are talking about the address bar?

You should be able to go to view -> toolbars -> customize window and reset the default view.

Thanks

Perhaps my options are limited because I am running it off a CD.

Or maybe the address bar just isn't there? Right click and see if you can enable it?

Where should I right click?

Do you think that running it off the CD is a factor?

Up near file, edit, view, etc...

And honestly it should be there, otherwise how else could you navigate around web sites?
