Is there no way to save tabs each time I now close my browser? I don't want to bookmark them as almost all are not to be saved. I used to close my browser and be able to reopen the save tabs when I started my browser the next time, now I can't, it's totally crippled my abilities online and what I am using my browser for and leaving me lost now.

Hi,

Google Chrome have just dropped an update featuring Tab groups. Holy smokes it is good.

As somebody who frequently has over a thousand tabs open, this is such an awesome feature. Any chance of Firefox getting it?

PS Love Firefox, great browser!

My browser opens new links in new tabs. I want them to open new links in the same tab.

Others inquire about the same issue get a response saying:;

"Did you try it? Some sites add a target="_blank" attribute to links. Links with these attributes are supposed to open in a new window when left clicked. However, Firefox by default opens these links in a new tab in the current window. By setting browser.link.open_newwindow to 1, these links will instead open in the current tab/window."

I need step-by-step help understanding what I need to do to set the browser are suggested in the above response.

I searched this forum but couldn't find an answer. I have "restore last session" turned on, but I'd like Firefox wouldn't reopen my last visited site after I close the browser by closing the last tab. In other words: if I close the browser by a regular means (by clicking the rightmost upper X, or by right-clicking the taskbar and choosing close window) it goes to the last viewed site when I reopen the browser – and that's ok – but when I close the last tab and the browser closes, I don't want to see this site again when I reopen Firefox. Is there a way to achieve this? By the way, this is the standard behavior in Google Chrome.

Move Tab: Ctrl+Shift+ PgUp/PgDn No Longer Works After Firefox Update

Hi. I'm currently using Firefox 86.0 in Linux (Ubuntu 20.04 64-bit) and for aeons I've been using Ctrl+Shift+ PgUp/PgDn to move tabs left and right, but a couple of updates ago I lost the ability to do so. Actually, I should say using the LEFT Ctrl and Shift buttons no longer works, as I ended up trying the right ones and I can still re-order tabs that way. However, I'm just so used to having my left hand working on that side of the keyboard, I always automatically press the left Ctrl+Shift, so I'd really like to get back to how things were until very recently. I was hoping doing another update to 86.0 yesterday would fix it, but it hasn't so here I am.

I've searched all over the web for a remedy, but all I see is people repeating the key combo, people recommending extensions that no longer exist (and I don't really want to install addons for something that used to be the default). I have not installed any addons for ages, have not tinkered with any settings (I can't even find any for key bindings) - all I did was let my system update Firefox, and that key combo was gone. (Note: since my system and apps get updated together, I can't actually be certain with was updating Firefox that did this, but I see no changed keyboard behavior elsewhere).

If anyone knows how to fix this, like a key in about:config or whatever, please let me know. PS: While searching the web, I've seen a lot of talk about related (Ctrl+Shift) combos I've never used - like Ctrl+Shift+ End to move the tab to the very end - and none of them work; the only Ctrl+Shift combo that works, and only with the right Ctrl+Shift, is Ctrl+Shift+ PgUp/PgDn for moving tabs left and right. I thought I should add that just in case it's related.

Hi!

I had two Firefox windows open at the same time, one with a lot of tabs open in it, and one with only a few open. I was going to close firefox in order to restart the computer, and closed the window with many tabs in it first, and then I closed the window with only a few tabs in it. The next time I started Firefox, only the window with a few tabs in it loaded, and not the other window in which I had the vast majority of all opened tabs. And I can't find any way to restore the tabs from the other window either. I have looked under the History menu, but I don't see any option to restore a previous session there, so I'm guessing that Firefox thinks that it already has restored the previous session when I opened it up again.

So, how can I restore the tabs I had in the other window, with a lot of tabs opened?

Hello folks,

How about if you remove that extra step to choose the option of closing other tabs. At the moment we have to right click on the tab, choose "Close Multiple Tabs" and then choose the actual option. Because this option is used quite a lot, I think it would be better to see that option as soon as we right click.

Thanks, Marco

When I open a tab, I get this notice: "Open Network Login Page": "You must log in to this network before you can access the internet."

When I close that tab, I can proceede as normally.

If I click on that button where it says "Open Network Login Page," I get another screen where that button is gone, and it says "You must log in to this network before you can access the internet."

Here is the URL: https://detectprotal.firefox.com/success.txt

Both of these pages has a question mark in a circle, but this is not clickable.

I am enclosing screenshots.

This is Firefox version 82.0.3 I use a Mac Book, version 10.14.6

I was just upgraded to Firefox 91.0. Immediately, pdfs only open in browser tab window after update, no matter what my settings say to use. I have tried "Save File", "Always ask", "Use Windows default app", and my usual choice "Use Adobe Acrobat". Makes no difference. The pdf always opens in a browser tab within Firefox. It was working in 90.0.2, which was the previous installed version before the 91.0 update.

Any suggestions as to how I can fix this?

Now Unable to Restore lost tabs (>70) and windows (4-5) from those previous sessions [On opening Firefox, "Restore session" button was missing and the firefox window displayed a blank page]. I closed and opened Firefox and have been unable to restore previously open tabs and windows (Using Firefox Version 88, Windows 10). Please advise.

Firefox was acting normally keeping my open tabs when I open the browser this morning. I don't know what happened. I left the computer for a couple hours this afternoon. I opened Windows and found a "new desktop" which I didn't want. I clicked on it and it took me back to my normal desktop. I had left Firefox minimized. Maybe this is what has removed my settings in Firefox. Now when I open Firefox, my saved tabs are gone. I've tried twice putting them back in. I check Options to make sure that restore session is checked. Each time I close, I get a single tab and have to re-open all of my favorite pages all over again. My Windows 10 version is 20H2.

What can I do in options that will allow my open tabs to stay saved?

Please reply.

I got an error on one of my open or pinned tabs (do not recall which it was). I do not recall what the error was and did not screenshot it because I was sure that closing Firefox and restarting it would fix the issue. I did just that, closed Firefox and reopened it to find that ALL of my pinned and open tabs were GONE. This also happens if another instance of Firefox is opened and I close my main one first by accident and then close the other Firefox instance - ALL TABS LOST.

This is what I have done: • I started to restore the pinned tabs as I could remember what they were but I was not able to remember the open tabs that were not pinned • I searched for lost tabs on the web and on the Mozilla support site but was not able to find any useful help - most of it seems outdated or no long compatible with my version of Firefox. • I looked for the sessionrestore files on my local PC but could not find them - this must have changed in some version of Firefox between version 42 and version 82 that I have. • I looked in the AddOn store to find something that would help restore and prevent this issue - but found nothing. A very old post, from 2012, indicated one that did this but it is no longer available. • All of the Options in Firefox to restore previous session, reopen previous tabs and all that were blank.

This is VERY frustrating in that it results in lots of down time to recreate what was open and is equivalent to working on a document for days or weeks only to find out that the Microsoft file got corrupt or did not save properly.

I am using Firefox version 82.0.2 (64-bit).

Two questions: 1/ Is there any way I can get the pinned and open tabs back from the previous session? 2/ What can I do to avoid this issue EVER happening again.

Thanks!!!!
