Problem I had two versions of Firefox open. Window "A" (my primary window) had many open tabs. Window "B" had only three tabs open. Like a knucklehead I accidentally closed the wrong window, "A". Upon restarting only the "B" version was there.

Possible Solution Two days ago I cloned my "C" drive as a backup. Although the Profile folder on the backup will only have 90+% of the tabs - I can gratefully live with that. I just need to know what files to copy over from the backup drive Profile folder to the messed up drive's Profile folder. I am hoping it will be that easy and I can copy the tab files and not the entire Profile folder. Thanks.

Upon restart, Firefox has kept dropping (not loading) hundreds of tabs. 555 tabs, as also listed in my sessionstore, but after loading is finished, only about 330 is actually loaded of those. Previously, there have been similar issues with different sets, and loading the full set over, and over again, sometimes the full set or very close to the full set is loaded, indeed. But it is clear that there's a bug or at least a very inconsistent behaviour in the code somewhere. How can this be propely troubleshot and fixed? Happy to help. Thanks.

When I snap Firefox to one side of the screen to fill half my monitor, I'm presented with so much padding that there is in fact more screen estate reserved for nothing than there is for tabs. Is this supposed to be normal behavior? I'm using a 4K laptop monitor with 300% scaling, which gave me no wasted space issues in the past.

Mozilla makes it so difficult to use its features- for example I find nothing that says Restore Previous Session. I went to the stuck of three lines at the top right and went to hisotry, click on recently closed window and absolutely nothing came back.

Mozilla people lies too much and cares nothing about good communications, awesome instructions  and technical support.

Lets say I have several Tabs loading endless . I want to select those multiple Tabs and stop them to load simultaneously and not one by one. Just like in the operation "Reload Tans" I want something similar for stopping the loading.

Lets say, I select multiple Tabs (Ctrl + Select or Shift + Select) and if I press also Esc they should all Stop from loading.

How can I do that ?

Normally, when I have the command key held down when clicking on a link, that link will open in a new tab. But some websites, for some inexplicable reasons, are programmed to force users to stay in the same window nevertheless.

So how can I force the link to immediately open in a new tab when I have the command key held down, instead of having to resort to holding down the control key, clicking the link, and then having to click on “Open Link in New Tab”?

Hello,

Firefox is currently opening external link in the current tab, without any possibility to go back. For example, whenever I follow a link from a program (e.g. a pdf reader), when I press F1 in LibreOffice etc., the page being opened in Firefox will replace the current tab (and the history for that tab will be disabled).

'This is a problem for several reasons': 1. One can't go back to the current since it's gone from the "go back one page". 2. If I am doing something in the tab, everything will automatically disappear, without any warning. 3. Since the current page will disappear completely, it can be tricky to know what tab content is being "overwritten".

Thank you in advance! Regards

A couple days ago, late, I accidentally closed my main Firefox window before a little window that I'd forgotten was there - and all my 76 tabs disappeared. 1st thing yesterday I tried - 3bar / history / recently closed tabs - but the only thing in there was the one tab from the small window. Urg! I tried that and - 3bar / history / manage - where I could see my tabs but could only restore 1 at a time - not good for 76 tabs. I read a bunch of different questions about this same issue, and tried the suggestions, including some app called scrounge, but none of these restored my tabs. Help!!!!

Hi!

In my firefox 105.0.3 I am logged in to my Office365 Outlook webmail. I have also configured firefox to handle mailto so that it opens outlook.office.com webmail. When I click a mailto link on a homepage it opens up a new mail to compose but in the same tab. So my question is, is it possible to make firefox open the compose page in a new tab?

Thanks

Why isn't the Restore Previous Session choice available on the Open Application Menu? Even if I click the checkbox under Tools/Settings/General/Startup: Open Previous Windows and Tabs (version 107/windows 11), I am presented with a tabula rasa screen on reopening my Firefox session. Your help/support says to go to the Open Application Menu/History and choose Restore Previous Session (located between Recently Closed Windows and Clear Recent History). However the Restore Previous Session is not listed. Not sure why Firefox can't get this right since you have had it right for the almost 20 years I have chosen it as my default browser.

If I pause a video (e.g. Hulu) in Firefox and close the lid on my laptop, that video will begin playing again automatically when I open my laptop again, even though I never pressed play. This happens whether Firefox is the foreground app or in the background.

Is this expected behavior? If not, how can it be turned off?

Thanks for your help.

Hi.

Since two or three wees aprox. "Ctrl+Tab cycles through tabs in recently used order" stop working. It doesn't matter if I check or uncheck the box. The behaviour is always the same: CTRL + TAB go to the next tab and with SHIFT to the tab before.

My version: Windows 107.0 (64-bit)

What could be happening? Thanks in advance.
