This has been happening over the last month or so. I'll be browsing with multiple tabs open and then for no apparent reason a few of my tabs will just close themselves. I'm not clicking on anything or using any shortcuts. Without any input on my part a group of maybe 3 or 4 tabs just suddenly close themselves, while the rest of my tabs remain. It doesn't seem to matter what pages the tabs are open to: google, amazon, whatever... Anybody have any ideas what's causing this? I've already tried updating, restarting, and disabling add-ons.

I regularly have 4 to 6 pinned tabs open, but would still like to be able to open my regular tabs with the `cmd+1–9` shortcuts. Is there a way to configure Firefox to use a different shortcut for the pinned tabs? It would be great to be able to have something like `cmd+option+1–9` be the pinned tabs, with `cmd+1–9` be the regular tabs.

I opened a recipe tabs weeks ago and for the past week it keeps opening back up every time I open FF. It doesn't replace any tabs that I have open already, it just opens a new tab and it is there, stalking me, every time I open the browser. I can't get it to STOP popping up. Help!!!

I absolutely love the new containers feature of Firefox. Well done, FF crew!

One feature request: when I'm on, say, a tab in my Work container and I do a Cmd-T to create a new tab, I'd like to have that tab open in whatever container I was on -- so in this example, the new tab would open in the Work container. I know there's an menu item to open a tab in a specific container, but this would make it 2 steps faster. Is this already possible?

I had a whole bunch of tabs that had been open for quite some time on my browser that I was planning to go through. I have my browser set to restore tabs / previous session each time I open so all the previous tabs remain there, and have had no problems for a long time. However the last time I tried to close Firefox it gave a warning saying I was trying to close x amount of tabs. I thought it a bit strange considering it hadn't asked me this before when closing but didn't think anything of it and closed the browser, only to open it next time to find all my open tabs had gone rather than being restored as normal.

I hadn't knowingly changed any of my settings and its still set to 'Restore previous session', and I can't work out a) why it hasn't restored it and b) what changed to prompt it to ask me if I wanted to close my tabs and then remove them rather than what it has always done!

After using Firefox for some time (from 10 to 20 minutes, usually), it simply refuses to open any new tabs, while all that were open previously continue to work normally. Click on "+" sign next to the last open tab simply produces no reaction, and the same is with "Open Link in the New Tab" command from the right-click menu. When restarted, problem disappears, just to reoccur a few minutes latter. This has started to happen about a month ago, all of the sudden. Has anyone experienced something similar? I'm on Win7, using the latest version of Firefox. I have tried to start Firefox with all the plug-ins disabled - nothing has changed. Thanks in advance!

Hi, I have a pinned tab on my firefox session. And every time I open Firefox it's there. But now I don' want it there, I've unpinned the tab and close it. But it keeps appearing pinned every time I open Firefox. My configuration for the start page is: Start of Firefox (Default) (or something similar, I don't have it in English) And my session is shared between my home and work computers (maybe this can be related) The pinned tab is open.spotify.com that opens another firefox window to log in. I haven't had any problem with other pinned tabs.

Thanks and sorry for my english.

By "work" I mean the page loading content. The tab itself opens if I open a link in a new tab, but that tab stays empty other than the url, with a gray loading ball on the top. On the other hand if I open the same link inside a preexisting tab, the content loads immediately. I have tried opening another tab and manually copy-pasting the same link as well, but that leads to the same problems as opening it in a new tab, as does clicking and dragging links (including when I drag the link to a preexisting tab, not just when creating a new tab).

The links I have tried include google, youtube, and wikipedia, so I doubt it's a specific issue with the websites I'm visiting.

Tabs permanently & silently crash >50% of the time -- freshly updated, fully reset firefox (linux)

I'm on Arch Linux, everything is up-to-date including video drivers and Firefox (64-bit/74.0), but this doesn't matter because this issue has been happening for approximately a year through many updates. All other programs are working fine, which might cast doubt on hardware/graphics issues.

ISSUE: When I make a new tab, whether with Ctrl+T or "+" tab button, or even Ctrl+Shift+T for opening a working tab I closed recently, the tab will be useless. I know this will happen because either (a) the tab doesn't show the firefox new tab page, but a gray screen, (b) the address bar will not respond, (c) one or both of the previous, and a small yellow box pops up for less than a second that says "a script is causing your page to slow down.."--this bar goes away immediately; I had to take a screenshot to read it. There is no notification of a crash other than this brief bar. Sometimes an existing tab will freeze, demonstrating the page until I scroll, whereupon new parts scrolled to of the page are just gray, and even old parts that have been scrolled off-screen come back gray, and the page is effectively an image since it's unresponsive, and even typing a new page into the URL bar doesn't do anything.

What makes this particularly disruptive is that by seemingly random chance and independent of the site being visited, the tab will be useless. The tab can't be made to work again, it will be frozen until closed and another tab created. This happens more than 50% of the time and either has gotten worse or more annoying to me over time. Usually I will middle click a link ten times and open one of 1-3 tabs that worked. Recently I closed several tabs but wanted to restore one, so I spammed Ctrl+Shift+T, but half the tabs were broken and irrecoverable (except through History).

WHAT DOESN'T WORK: I reset firefox and updated everything for this post. I have no addons installed, and the plugins are OpenH264 (1.8.1.1), Shockwave Flash (32.0.0.344), and Widevine Content Decryption Module (4.10.1582.2). There are no recent crash reports in about:crashes.

Super looking forward to fixing this, the browser is unusable in its current state. Worth mentioning, this also happens on my Windows machine, but I'd like to fix it first on Linux unless Windows is helpful for diagnosis.
