    Thanks! Just a small suggestion: instead of right-clicking on the tab bar (which is indeed easy to confuse with clicking on a tab), it is easier to left-click in the main menu View -> Toolbars. Same options, but easier to find, IMHO. 🙂

    Thanks! BTW, you say “Right-click on the tab bar…” Many people might interpret that as “Right-click a tab…” You actually have to right-click an EMPTY place on the tab bar. And it’s not really a “bar” at all—at least not a visible one. (It’s where the tabs appear, but most people perceive tabs as being part of the pages whose titles they show.)

    It may be clearer to say, “Right-click the empty space to the right of your open tab(s).”

    Cheers, ander

    Thank you! Thank you! Since I upgraded to 5.0 the tabs were above the toolbar. What a confusing mess that way. Thanks again!
