Hmm, better overall than Beta 3...but that right-click menu has just "got" to work, or at the least like it does in AB 11 Build 46...

or else a lot of use goes down the digital drain.

Am checking it out with both MS and Logitech mice ( mouse-si ? ) again...

Hopefully Beta 5!

UPDATE: Sorry! Didn't specify earlier that I meant to say that it's Vista that didn't work, however, XP Pro / Home, SP1 and SP2, continue to work OK with the latest Beta's right-click menu.

3- right clik drag pictures problem , i use right clik+mouse left to go back and right clik+mouse right to close window , problem is the right clik+mouse movement on the version 11.5 on a picture make the picture get draged and will open on a new window insted of go back or close my window.

Still no Search (and optional button link to) in the side bar.. as far as I'm concerned 11.5 removed my most daily used feature.. again, I saw no point in removing this! :roll: Anderson.. do us a favour and put it back, please. It's quick, convenient and most of all - it's what we're used to!

He've said that there's no point for this feature since everything's available from the search bar.
But I agree,There's no point in removing this feature.

I don't like the Search Bar.. its "anyways" present, which I don't like, and takes up browser window space...

Again: "Bookmarks" has a dropdown menu, a side bar menu and a toolbar of its own - all optional to use. Therefore why can't Search?

By that logic, it seems that the only reason Bookmarks is in the sidebar is so we can search them? Also, the functionality between the bookmarks and AutoFills are pretty much the same... why not combine those?

We also don't have one-click access to editing search strings nor to clearing all search keywords. Now that I've a widescreen monitor, I was keeping my sidebar open more.

That argument seems a bit silly. (Not trying to kill the messenger, though. ;))

ALL Beta changes should increase Beta numbering

Is this silent update marked Beta 5 -- or even Beta 4a -- as ANY reasonable change, even silent updates, should be?

That is, the "Beta count" should increase. If not, then we all eventually wind up with confusion.

I did not installed new beta for now. What about translations ? Do we need to do a new one ? Or only few new phrases are needed to be translated ?
