    Hey guys.

    Ok I'm a computer geek and all, but this one has got me puzzled. New Firefox 4 is doing a weird thing on some websites, including RealJock. When you click a link it loads the page, however not once, but 3 times very quickly. So when you then proceed to hit "back" you have to do it 3 times to actually get out of that page. This quickly becomes annoying.

    I've noticed that this only happens when I'm logged in. I checked and this behavior doesn't occur in Safari. I also disabled all FF Addons and even deleted all RealJock cookies to start fresh, but no luck.

    Has anybody else had this issue?

    Hmm I thought it was just me. Yes annoying. And if my computer shuts down unexpectedly for some reason it won't restore my previous tabs.

    Firefox upgrade FAIL

    Having the same issue myself -- I'm wondering if it has something to do with concurrent TCP sessions per tab..maybe you're 'back'-ing each session or something?

    Just installed Firefox 4 a couple of days ago, and haven't had the type of problem you're describing. For the most part, it's been a pretty standard browsing experience.

    Don't think Firefox understood what the term 'upgrade' means...same problem here with the back button. Plus I had to reorganize all the buttons that they seemed to think worked 'better' spread all over the place... I'd give them a D grade on this one. Let's see how fast they come up with a patch - they are getting tons of comments on this issues alone

    Same here. No issues at all.

    I also have the back button issue. Makes no sense but hopefully they'll make an update soon. Until then I'll just have to click thrice.

    In general Firefox has done a fantastic job on the new browser.

    There just seems to be a bug. Now the question is whether the bug is in FF4 or somewhere in the coding of the cookies, sessions and server-side scripts.

    I'm gonna put together a bug report for the Mozilla team, guys could you please list a couple websites that gave you similar problems?

    Thanks

    I'm wondering if Firefox fixed this issue already?

    For the guys who are having problems, when did you install FF4? What O/S?

    Same questions for those with no problem.

    I installed FF4 two days ago, March 29
    Windows XP SP3

    I'm on Win7 Ent., experiencing the issue with both the thick- and thin-apped versions.

    The lesson here is not to upgrade to V4. Thanks, men --

    Well, to be fair...it's a minor annoyance. Most of the web apps that I use generally have some sort of hyperlink back to the previous section. There's really only a small number of sites that are annoying for now...I'm sure it'll be fixed with the next patch.

    Who had a choice if you want to use FireFox? GoogleChrome is shiny & all but....ehh.icon_neutral.gif

    I noticed that the "re-load" button is gone...or moved who-the-hell-knows-where!

    Using WinXP, that's my only gripe so far....besides it seems to take longer to load up and get a new page.

    Oh, and sometimes....sometimes, my UserName/Password has to be entered 2 times on some webpages....won't seem to work first time.icon_rolleyes.gif

    The reload button is moved. It now mimics Explorer and is at the end of the URL box.

    So along with having to click 'back' 3 times and it not saving my prior tabs like it used to I now have to constantly remember where the reload button is. Wow, good job Firefox. icon_sad.gif

    Wow. That's weird. I upgraded to FF4 on my XP and W7 machines. No issues.

    Also, in case you guys didn't know.. you can rearrange/add/remove the buttons on your toolbar. I fixed mine so that it looks like FF3. Honestly, I think FF4 is pretty good. It's faster that FF3. But I think the Firefox button is stupid. Trying to mimic Windows Ribbons a bit. Got rid of it and brought the normal menu bar back. Also, hiding the status bar by default is another dumb move.

    Agreed. Funny, on the Mac, I haven't noticed much difference at all...then again, nothing that I do when I'm home is really all that crazy. I really don't get why removing the status bar was a good idea. I guess they were trying to maximize visible space?

    I always wait a while before installing new versions of Firefox. That way, there's time for bugs to be worked out and extensions to be updated.

    For me.. AdBlock Plus, NoScript, Web Developer all had new versions and worked right away. Those guy are pretty much on top of things when new versions of FF comes out.
