Firefox will not create new tabs

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?

Please continue here: [/questions/1285975]
Using an Apple computer and Firefox 75.0 ... In in my toolbar (where the File, Edit, View options are), and I go to History > Recently Closed Tabs ... I see many recently opened tabs listed. How do I stop "Recently Closed Tabs" from accumulating? I want that list to always be clear.

Thank you.

I want to have my posts on Voy Forums to be about 4 to 5 inches wide. Now when I type a post, it fills the whole page and it's hard for people to follow. I need to set the default margin for posts. How can I do that without having to use the "Enter Key"?

How can I remove the Extension (Yahoo ….lbar and New Tab) area from blocking typing space?

When I open up a new tab, sometimes the window is short and because the Extension is long I can’t type unless I expand the window. See image below. I don’t want to expand the window because I am using the side by side view ( one doc is half the screen and another doc is the other half of screen). How can I remove the Extension (Yahoo ….lbar and New Tab) so its not blocking the available typing space?

See image attached with screenshots

Hi, running FF 42.01b on 64 bit Windows 10

Each time I load FF, the options page opens as well as my home page.

I have changed a few settings and thought maybe I need to save the settings, but can't see a save setting option. Not sure why this is happening. Have uninstalled, cleaned settings and re-installed, same thing.

Advice appreciated.

What is the point of clearing my history or having is disabled if recently closed tabs shows where I have been. This is crucial for someone who is having their account monitored by someone else. How do I delete recently closed tabs and is there anyway to disable that?

This is in response to JSCHER2000 reply to me about my original question: "Windows 10 Annaversary update installed, now I cannot, "Restore Previous Session"???? Then he (jscher2000) asked me: "...How far did get? When you are in the Profiles folder, you should see one or more folders with a random alphanumeric string on the left side, and a word or a word following by a number on the right side. For example:

9ded0vb6.default

There not much else there to look at other than one or more folders that follow that naming pattern.

I've tried many many different suggestions how to remove the throbber image on the tabs while pages are loading.

This isn't really a question. This is a solution, at least for Linux users:

1) First, run these commands from a terminal:

 cd ~/.mozilla/firefox/*default* && mkdir chrome
 cd chrome
 echo '.tab-throbber { display: none !important }' \
  >> userChrome.css

2) Restart Firefox

Yay, no more stupid animation burning 22% CPU and eating my laptop battery!

You're welcome!  :-)

I have tried to stop Firefox opening multiple tabs by removing it as my default browser. It now asks me every time but is still not completing the download.

Closed as duplicate, please see and continue with original thread /questions/1132062. ~J99

After asking about this yesterday (and thank you for responding to my query), I have followed your suggestion to Change the action for a content type, I have Reset actions for all content types, and deleted mimeTypes.rdf. Now Firefox doesn't automatically create dozens of tabs - the only difference is it asks me every time because Firefox is no longer my default browser. It would still open dozens of tabs if I typed yes. It's not actually downloading anything, or if it is I don't know where it's putting it. I don't understand why this is still happening - but has only happened since upgrading to Windows 10 last weekend. Thank you.
