  1. I don't use it - all it does is take up more space on my screen.

    Then I have to go back and "clear from bar" -

    I just want to be rid of it - but how?
    I don't have the "always show the tab bar" selected in tools

    Thanks!

    How about don't use it?

    Don't open things in new tabs, uncheck all options to open new links, etc in new tabs, and use ctrl-n instead of ctrl-t when opening a blank?

    Or.. you could use IE6

    That's what I'm asking - how to stop it.
    I've unchecked everything I can find about it -
    so where do I all look?

    And I do have that first button (open new window) checked

    And don't even MENTION ie!

    Can you provide your FF version? The option stated above works in 1.5.0.11
