Issue with titlebar hiding buttons with FireFox 4

I am having an issue with the titlebar covering the tab buttons on FireFox v4. See attached.

I like and use the titlebar so I don't want to disable it. Can I move it's position? Can I disable it on a application basis?

Jon has said that the next beta will support FF4, but in the meanwhile, you can customize the position of the tab buttons in Firefox instead...

(what I did: right-click the tab bar, click Customize, put "Space" items to the right of the tabs until there is an empty space made available for DF buttons. Three "space" items worked for me.)

Update to the new Beta 2 and it plays nicely with Firefox 4.

Actually it is much better however it covers about 1/4 of the drop down arrow. For mine it looks like it needs to move over a couple of pixels.

Which version of Windows are you using, and are you using Windows Aero, Basic or Classic? Which build of Firefox are you using?

Beta 2 appears to be working fine for me with Firefox RC. Can you post a screenshot of what you're seeing, and the information from the Troubleshooting tab in the DisplayFusion Settings window? Thanks!

Hmm wont let me put the troubleshooting because it exceeds the characters. What parts do you need?

What is that icon to the right of the dropdown arrow? Is that a FF4 feature, or something added by a FF addon?

It looks like you can customize that area, and add as many icons as you want. Unfortunately it's impossible for DisplayFusion to detect this, so you'll need to use the Compatibility Settings to manually adjust the TitleBar Button Offset:

Odd I don't remember adding that button but maybe I did. Anyways its not that big of a deal since it doesn't really block the drop down. If it bugs me that bad I will do what you suggested.

Thank you for your support and product.

Just to follow-up, the New Beta 6 has much improved Firefox 4 support.
