The firefox icon initially is orange/red blue, but after a couple of weeks loses all its colour and becomes grey. It is like this for all new tabs I open after this. When I refresh firefox the colour usually returns, and if I uninstall and reinstall the fox has its colour back. Does this loss of colour indicate something is going on eg I have been hijacked, or the extensions I have are incompatible, or?

I installed FVD speeddial to customize my new tabs/homepage and it first it ran fine. But then a few days ago whenever I tried to change the image displayed on dial (bookmark) it would just show a white square / rectangle. No matter what I set it to (auto preview etc.) this is all it would display. Now it's doing this for everything. I even uninstalled and tried the add-on New Tab Tools instead but am having the same problem.

I have, on average, about 10-15 tabs open and pinned in Firefox, at any given time at the office. There are times when I want to prevent people from looking at a tab or several tabs. Is it possible to use a password on a tab(s) to prevent people from seeing what I was looking at?

Thanks.

I opened a tab in private browsing mode, but the site I was couldn't save on private browsing mode. It had something to do with the flash. I can't just re-open the tab on normal mode because the stuff I made would be lost. Is there any way I can switch the tab without losing the information?

I've searched forums and tried reloading with add-ons disabled, tried reinstalling, but nothing helps. Once I have four tabs open, it won't load more. The tab shows my destination address in the address bar, but just spools and won;t load. No error message. I suspect it's something to do with the latest update (I think installed last week?), but am not sure.

I was using the tree style tabs add-on. Firefox popped up a message about a problem with that add-on, which I unfortunately clicked on, and all my tabs vanished. Now not only do I not have my tree-style tabs, Firefox will not create new tabs at all, and "restore session," or "restore all tabs" does nothing. FWIW, in safe mode, it will still give me standard abs at the top.

The Add-ons page offers me "find alternative add-ons," but will not download the alternative it offered me.

I've been a loyal Firefox user since the very first iteration of Firefox, but this has got me ready to bail and find another browser. Really pissed that it gave me no option to read up on what the problem was before killing all my tabs and refusing to allow me to even make new ones in the standard top tab mode without safe mode. I understand there being a problem with an add-on, but this sort of behavior is beyond the pale.

Anyone encountered this problem? Any solutions beyond changing browsers?

This is NOT my first comment on this issue. I just refreshed Firefox again today, doesn't resolve the issue: Firefox spawns tabs from sites I visit. No Rhyme nor reason... At one point today I counted 45 non-requested tabs created. After resetting FF I went back to Facebook almost immediately when I looked at the top bar I had SEVEN open Facebook tabs. only addin I use is 'noscript' I have been a FF user for years and if I can't resolve this issue I will give up FF.

In private browsing window, logged into youtube, switched off autoplay, turned video volume from 100% to 50%, switched video quality from 360p to 720pHD and turned on video captions.

Upon opening a new video in new tab, everything is reseted to defults except autoplay and still logged in.

Does not occur at firefox 56.1, upon updating to firefox 59++ this issue occured and reverted to 56.1. Currently at firefox 68.3esr and having a better experience except this volume resets.

Tried to use about:config with 'privacy' inputted, didn't notice much changes compared from 56.1 vs 68.3esr. Messing with cookie settings didnt work either. No addons are installed. Typed many searches and no avail.

Is it a bug or a design decision. I mean if I have a lot of opened tabs and I intend to close just one tab, then a slight delay in releasing the key combination would result in closing rest of the tabs. Shouldn't it be like Press and Release key combination to perform the corresponding action which would ensure the action is performed just once. That is what it was like on Chrome and Edge.

I have tried previously listed fixes, like changing browser.search.openintab, browser.urlbar.openintab and browser.tabs.loadBookmarksInTabs to true, and of course the checkbox is selected in my preference to open links in a new tab but none of those have worked. I already know about Cmd/ctrl+click but the point is I shouldn't have to do that when I've already stated the preference and it is a pain when you are sifting through long pages of search results. I am using Google search and there is no option in Google preferences to open in new tab, so I'm assuming this is on FF's end.

My question says it all, but once again: I am browsing videos in youtube, cooking videos. I right click on a sidebar video to open in a new tab, and it does; the unfortunate thing is - the link opens in the tab I am browsing from as well!!

Also (not as important as above) - why do videos need to be opened twice in youtube?

Thanks! Rocket57

Synchronisation der neuen Tab-Umgebungen (Firefox Multi-Account Container) nicht möglich - unterschiedliche Sichheitseinstellungen ?

1. Ich möchte auf allen Geräten die gleiche Tab-Umgebung (Firefox Multi-Account Container) haben, da ich die vorgegebenen Tabs des Multi Account Containers umbenannt und die Anzahl erweitert habe. Eine Möglichkeit zur Synchronisation hierzu finde ich in den Einstellungen jedoch nicht.

2. Ich möchte für die Tabs unterschiedlich strenge Sicherheitseinstellungen anlegen. Ich sehe jedoch keine Möglichkeit hierzu, außer, dass ich das Programm Firefox für jede Tab-Umgebung separat öffne und dann die Sicherheitseinstellungen abändere. Ich habe dann das Programm Firefox vielleicht 5 oder 6 x am Bildschirm geöffnet.

Google Translation:

1.I want to have the same tab environment (Firefox Multi-Account Container) on all devices, because I renamed the given tabs of the Multi Account Container and expanded the number. However, I do not find a way to synchronize this in the settings.

2. I want to create different security settings for the tabs. However, I see no way of doing this, except that I open the Firefox program for each tab environment separately and then change the security settings. I then opened the Firefox program maybe 5 or 6 times on the screen.
