I admittedly have way too many tabs in one session, but haven't had too many problems with concerning losing any tabs or being unable to restore my previous session. However, Firefox froze while I was browsing and I restarted my computer and opened up Firefox and was not able to restore my previous tabs. Usually if I restart my computer without exiting Firefox, the option always is available when I reboot Firefox. I am not sure why this is suddenly not an option, but I am desperate to get these tabs back, or even just a list of what each one was instead of the actual tabs. I read about ways to do this, but some seem dated and I did not understand how to do any of them. I am not sure how to find sessionstore.bak/js, which seems to be the most recommended way of fixing this issue. I currently have Windows 10 with the latest version of Firefox as of this posting. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Power went out and now FF has none of my tabs from previous session. I'm not positive and maybe someone was trying to help in my absence but I don't think I restarted FF twice without saving a backup copy of the .js lot. The last time I went through this was in Dec. 2016. I don't want to have to go there to restore. HELP

I have done everything from changing the pipe to %7C , scanning for malware , resetting my homepage to just one , and just about every other solution stated in your help community!! I had this problem once before , I did something and it worked! That was a few months ago so I don't remember what I did! It's like that Firefox is not remembering any changes that I make! And yes , I looked up solutions as to why that Firefox isn't changing my preferences or saving my changes also! And I have tried almost all of those solutions too! Nothing is working... thank you for your time...

For the last several versions of Firefox one of my two homepages on opening the browser is frequently replaced by a new tab; clicking on the home icon always opens the missing homepage (along with a second copy of the other one that is open), but this is now getting annoying. I was hoping an update would fix the problem, but of course this has not happened.

The problem began several FF versions ago just about the same time I updated CCleaner, so I considered the possibility that the latter was deleting something that interferred with my FF tabs; after having uninstalled that version of CCleaner, however, and reinstalled the previous one - the use of which had never coincided with the tab problem - the continued issue with the new tab was clearly not due to CCleaner, so I could only assume that the problem was with FF itself. (Note: I had not installed any new plug-ins or extensions at the time the problem began.)

Thanks.

For unrelated reasons, I did a clean reinstall of Mac OS 10.11.1 and downloaded a fresh copy of Firefox and several add ons: noscript, better privacy, a cookie manager and adblock plus. I notice that the issue persists. It occurs from multiple apps e.g. I often drag an untrusted url from an email in Apple Mail or from Facebook in Safari to the Firefox dock icon to open it in my more secure, locked down browser (Firefox).

Sometimes when I type an address in the address bar and click "Enter", the active tab just closes instead of loading the page. I get no error warning. I'm not certain but I think it has also happened at least once when I clicked a link on a page. As far as I can tell, it's not a specific site, or type of sites. It's not a common thing, only happens once in a while.

Not even an exaggeration. It's only 9 pm and I've already submitted over 80 crashes for today alone.

For Hardware Acceleration, I've tried to disable and enable and disable it again with no change. I tried to read around and turned on "Prevent accessibility services from accessing your browser" as well, hearing that some people have tried that with results. I do not have an actively scanning antivirus running, nor firewall. I had this issue before the upgrade to Quantum. I did a completely clean upgrade in hopes of fixing it, and I'm still having issues. Daily. It's been ongoing for several months at this point.

Here's some of the IDs of the last reports: 10 each. Unsubmitted reports:

New tabs are preserved but existing tabs are not opening the URL they were last closed at.

For example, If I am on page 1 of a forum/comic on a tab and I move to page 3 and then close the browser. When I open it is at page 1 again. If I then press next to page 7 as the forum/comic has moved on, read the latest and then maybe close the browser a day later, on re-opening it will open to either 1 or 3.

This is across 3 firefox installations, ON 3 PCs.

I just noticed that Open Tabs were set to sync but I actually have no tab crossover between the browsers and they don't restore unless you choose to being them over so each browser with a particular tab open should update that one on re-open, not take it from an instance that does not have that tab open.

Anyway, it is really starting to pee me of as when I re-open my home instance it is not opening Cyanide and Happiness about 30-40 commics behind the last one read.

It all worked perfectly before Quantum and none of my settings have changed.

Cheers,

Rob.

First, I just had a major system crash, had to re-install Linux Mint and through my own stupidity, relied on the wrong backups for my firefox configuration. So I lost my Firefox 52 install with all of my extensions (that still worked). Now, I'm running v. 57 Quantum, and a few things aren't working correctly.

First, the MAJOR problem: when I open a link from a bookmark, it's clobbering an existing tab that I was using (that's why it was open, obviously). That is completely unsat and can not be allowed to continue. How do I correct this? I can't find the option under settings-->tabs to fix this problem.

Second issue (major annoyance): I can no longer create a bookmark directly in a bookmark folder on the bookmark toolbar. I used to be able to open that bookmark folder, and the first option was to bookmark the currently open tab. That option has vanished, and i use that all the time. How do I restore that?

Actually, one more issue: I have two tabs that are pinned and are supposed to be protected (i.e., nothing can clobber them, and I can't close them without deliberately turning the protection off (context menu right-clicking on tab). I need that back, because for some reason, firefox thinks it's ok to open a bookmark in those tabs, too, when it most definitely is NOT ok.

Thanks, Jim Graham

При закрытии последней вкладки всегда открывается вкладка "Новая вкладка"(см. скриншот). Её нельзя закрыть, пока не закроешь само окно приложения. Аналогично, нельзя закрыть при помощи панели задач Windows. Эта вкладка сохраняет в себе закладки других сайтов. Но есть существенный недостаток: закладки нельзя настоить вручную, они возникают случайным образом. Из-за этой владки сложно закрыть Firefox.

Using FF 29.0 or 29.0.1, session storage seem badly broken.

All commands for restoring previous sessions are disabled (whether or not they are from an extension), and even when the browser gets restarted (for example when an extension is installed or updated) all the sessions get lost: I click Restart in the extensions tab with 10 different tabs opened, and the restarted Firefox window contains NOTHING but the default startup page (on which, by the way, the search box doesn't work at all).

Before someone asks, I've already tried all the standard suggestions:

1) Tried with a new empty profile with NO extension at all 2) Tried deleting ALL profile info, uninstalling FF, then reinstalling and using the default empty profile with NO extensions whatsoever

And the problem is still there: session storage does not function (sessionstore.js doesn't get created).

The only thing that solved the problem was reverting back to FF 28, which I have done.

(By the way, this bug led me to discover another thing which I consider a total ergonomic failure: in FF28 the "check for updates" button in the about dialog MUST be called in another way: this button DOES NOT check for updates, it INSTALLS updates! In fact, if clicked, it does not check and tell me if a new version is available: if the new version is available, having clicked "check" is interpreted as "Download and immediately install the update", and NOTHING can be done to stop this when clicked; even closing FF results in the updated version being installed as soon as downloaded, and the only way to get back to the previous version is to download the specific installed from mozilla and reinstall it! This is NOT a version check, this is a forced update a la M$!)

Any other suggestion form the experts?

Environment: MAC OSX 10.9.5 Firefox 32.0.3

Firefox keeps consuming lot of memory when you keep refreshing a tab after an interval.

I opened a single tab in my firefox and logged into my gmail account on that. At this stage the memory consumption was about 400MB. I refreshed the page after 10 seconds and it went to 580MB. Again i refreshed after 10 seconds and this time it was 690MB. Finally, when i refreshed 3rd time after 10 seconds, it was showing as 800MB.

Nothing was changed on the page (no new email, chat conversation, etc. nothing). Some how i feel that the firefox is not doing a good job at garbage collection. I tested this use case with lot of other applications and websites and got the similar result. Other browsers like Google chrome, safari, etc. they just work fine.

For one on of my application with three tabs open, the firefox literally crashed after the high memory consumption (around 2GB).

Can someone tell me if this is a known issue in firefox? and is firefox planning to fix it? Right now, is there any workaround or fix for this?

At this point I would consider this a bug - I don't give a rat's nose about what magic javascript (pseudo-)developers but if I hold CMD button and make a click I want window to be opened in the background! (it seems that gmail is the main culprit, but probably most of google-produced FantasticCreation is affected by it…)
