1. Firefox4 coming with new design with excellent performance.
2. Firefox4 is 6 – 10 times faster and quicker than previous version, you can feel its speed in startup time and performance of webpage.
3. One change which I like more in firefox4 is “Switch-to-Tab” option, when you are opening a new tab or typing some site in the address bar which is already open on that window, Firefox will check to see if you already have that site open, if so you will be directed to the existing site tab so that you don’t end up opening a duplicate of page of same site.
4. Tap group: If you have too many tabs open on your window, Firefox4 will gave you the best option to organize tabs in to groups by name. To get started select the Tab Groups icon from the right side of the tabs, drag and drop your tabs into manageable groups and gave the related names to the groups or simply you can move to the group by right click any tab.
5. All Tabs placed on the top of the address bar which gives you more space to make you easier to focus on the content of the sites.

11. Firefox Sync: you will be able to open your pages, navigates those pages if you close your desktop and you want same environment when you open again any time without having to go and recreate every device you open subsequent to that.
12. Form complete: I hope this option will make you to save your valuable time. If you tired of typing out the same answers again and again, now Firefox4 has solution for that, when you are filling bank registration form Firefox4 will suggest you the information for each field based on your most common answers for similar fields in other forms.

By labeling a site with names or categories that are related to site, like, you can name both www.yahoomail.com and www.gmail.com with the “mails” tag. When you enter “mails” in the address bar, both sites will be shown as results. Number of tags you can create and single site can have more than one tag.
15. Firefox4 is not available on Apple’s IPhone because of terms and conditions of Apple store, but it is available for Android mobiles.
