  1. i have my pc on 7/24 and have done so for the last 5 years. i just do not get tabs at all. why? i open firefox multiple times and minimize and maximize the page i need. i guess i am not geek enough to understand why tabs are to die for. i’m not much on keyboard shortcuts either–in fact not at all. so, it fills me with only dread that firefox 4 may be geeked out to the point that i can’t even use it at all.

  2. How about disabling tabs altogether? All they do is take up space on the desktop. If people got used to looking at the bottom ‘status bar’ where the ‘tabs’ were already as a new window it saves space on the desktop. TABS SUCK!
