Hi there!

My recommended by pocket feature disappeared after the most recent Firefox update. Im currently running 78.01 version. I also tried about:config and the browser.newtabpage.activity-stream.feeds.section.topstories is set to true, but pocket recommendations are still missing from the homepage. Your help will be much appreciated.

Does W10 treat .css files differently than W7? Trying to get tabs on bottom, and old solution not working in W10

Hi all, I just got a new laptop and am trying to get FF the way I like it. This new laptop is W10, and the FF version is 78.0.1.

My old laptop (W7) also has FF 78.0.1.

I created a Chrome folder and a userChrome.css file in my new computer. I copied and pasted the "tabs on bottom" code I have been using on my W7 computer into the new file on my new computer and it is not working.

I have looked all over the web for several hours now and have tried several different versions of the code, tried turning the "legacy toolkit" line (in about:config) on and off and nothing has worked. I also can't find any information on why this code would work in W7 but not W10.

Does anyone have any thoughts?

Hi I attached this to an already solved question and I'm afraid I won't get a response. After update to 72.0.1 Tabs merged with Bookmarks Toolbar. The solved solution of new text for the userChrome.css file doesn't work. The userChrome.css text jdevlin supplied does not work on my Firefox. I had to create a new chrome folder as this update seems to have deleted it. I pasted the text into the userChrome.css but there was no change. What am I doing wrong?

Really need help on this, Firefox is practically unusable like this.

Thanks!

Until the most recently Firefox update (7/1/20), when I clicked in my address bar, it would drop down and show the web sites I visited most frequently. Now, when I click in the address bar, it shows a bunch of random websites, some of which I only visited once a long time ago. How do I get the drop down menu back to how it was before the update? Thanks.

when there's an open private window and you close the non private window first , all the tabs are closed and when you open firefox again all tabs are cleared and just a new tab is open

this is not desired behavior I guess and i've lost all the open tabs multiple times this way because sometimes private windows remain left open in another desktop or just minimized (and you shutdown the PC or just close the Firefox and all the tabs are gone!).

is there any settings for this ? if not then this is a bug report I guess

I want each new tab to go the Google search page. Why can't I do this?

As it is, in the 'new tab' settings, there's a grand total of just TWO choices - either Firefox's home page, or a blank page. Seriously, is that it??

Grateful for any assistance...

Hi, Currently, it is possible to close tab only from line of Tabs on the top of the window. Unfortunately in this view, it is impossible to see the long name of Tab (in case if you have tens of it) and the user should open each Tab before close it. Would you add functionality to close Tabs from the Tabs dropdown list ( just add X at the right side of each line) or add some Tab Manager view (as you have for Bookmarks) with same close Tab function?

Thank you.

When I am on a Firefox webpage and it site says something like "Click Here" to open a how to file or a pfd or a statement to print...those types of things. Once I click on the button Firefox starts to open new tabs, one after another. It never stops. I end up shutting down Firefox before it finishes. I counted 55 new tabs at one point. But, the new material never shows up either! Any suggestions?

This question was asked a few months ago and is archived now. It gave a detailed explanation of how to make the tab text bold. I followed the instructions carefully, but it did not work. Maybe this method doesn't work in the current version of Firefox (77.0.1 as of this writing)? The solution involved adding to or creating a userChrome.css file, which I did (the answer also referenced the filename "userContent.css", which I also tried without success).

The solution said to create a css file that contained this text:

#TabsToolbar .tabbrowser-tab .tab-content {
  font-weight: 800 !important;
}

put it in a folder named "chrome" in the user profile folder, and then restart Firefox, which I did, but it had no effect.

Anyone have another solution, perhaps that works with a later version of Firefox? Thanks much.

Hi guys!

I have the following problem: 2 days ago I viewed a Youtube video. After viewing it I closed that tab. Since then I have watched countless other Youtube videos, each time closing the tab once I viewed it. However, every time I start my Firefox after firing up my laptop this particular Youtube video that I watched 2 days ago is running in a tab.

Can someone please help me get rid of this?
