    Why on earth does Fireworks CS4 ALWAYS open documents full screen?
    I can tell this is an after effect from you guys adding that tabbed interface garbage which was a stupid idea in the first place.
    I mean look at this scenario that I encounter several times a week, I had a layout and want to shove a bunch of photos into it, so I drag all the photos onto my fireworks icon when I already have my document open then normally these would all open cascaded and sized the same as the file allowing me to drag them all into fireworks in a few seconds.
    Since CS4 I drag them onto the icon and I’m greeted with 20 full screen windows even if the documents are all under 400×400 pixels big, does this not seem really stupid to you? I mean you have to admit if I did have your useless tabbed interface activated then it would still be stupid.
    Maybe in future you should consider how people actually work using your software instead of trying to fix the problems with the windows GUI with bad ideas like tabs, because lets face it thats why you added tabs, window management in windows is HORRIBLE because of the MDI interface which makes it a tedious nightmare, so to fix that you added the stupid tabbed interface, fair enough windows users are used to garbage so probably think that a sh*t sandwich with “tabbed interface” written on it is a good idea, however mac users already have brilliant window management and you managed to break the damn thing with this terrible release.
    Thank god my boss who insists on fireworks is leaving so I won’t have to suffer this trash much longer.

    We have just released several new Fireworks Tutorials – with CS4 and ‘CS3 & below’ versions – both for beginners and professional web designers – URL: Can you please direct me where to submit these so the Adobe Fireworks developer community can benefit from them.
