When I right click and choose Field or Group Properties I am missing some tabs from the ribbon:
All I see in my ribbon is Data, Merge and Details

I was looking at another persons InfoPath and it showed
Data, Display, Size Advanced and Browser forms

Is it because of the template I am using or something? properties boxfieldprop1.jpg

These properties are dynamic base don the type of data and the type of control.

In the Data Source pane on the right you have your fields.  This is the raw data elements.  If you right click and get properties there you get the smaller property box since there is no adjusting size for instance in the raw data.

If you drag a field onto your view, say as a text box, then go to proprites of that text box control you will get the expanded properties since a control has a lot more display type options.

Data fields are just the data values and can be used multiple times in multiple controls. Controls are the specific elements that allow the user in the view to interact and manipulate the data such as a text box, date picker, drop down, etc.

If it is browser compatible you will see the browser tab otherwise you will not.
