It shouldnt. Firefox 9.0.1 should look like this by default. If it does not, you have likely modified something to change the appearance.

If you are using my view as a reference, dont. I add the bookmarks toolbar and dont use it as I like the appearance of the Personas to show thru.

Select View/Toolbars/Customize to open the toolbar palette. Drag the Activity Indicator (throbber) to the end of the URL bar.

Mid page here explains modifying the toolbars.

No I am talking about the circular arrow/X at the end of the URL bar. It used to turn red (FF 8) but went away with FF 9.
Thanks for the activity indicator though. I will pull it down if I can't get the red back

Do you mean maybe this - the "Refresh page" button?

Have 9.0.1. The Firefox.exe process uses about 30% less memory than the version it replaced.

I upgraded. We are on Verizon wireless in a rather slow area and I see absolutely no difference. Didn't seem to speed anything up. If they already have 10 beta I sort of wonder why 9?

Firefox 9.0.1 is the current released version.
Firefox 10 is in beta
Firefox 11 is Aurora
Firefox 12 is Nightly

This thread (part of Mozillazine) is updated daily as the compilations are completed for each version.

Many testers will pull the versions of their choice and test it against their configuration, settings, operating system, etc and report as they find bugs.

Usually by the time a versions is in beta is has gone thru some extensive world wide testing. You can see by the page above they continue to remove bugs and keep washing the program until it meets the release requirements.

....have that version, too. On the PC, the memory usage clocks from 64k to ~~98k (this is totally dependent of browser/browsing usage/intensity). This is an extremely wide variance. However, the "real feel" first load is considerably faster than any previous versions I've used...

I typically use the browser with "Private Browsing" engaged...(unless I'm using it as my file explorer)
