As long as Firefox has added the containers feature in the last updates, the actual behavior of the new tab button needs to be updated, or at least configurable. If you're in a specific container, new tab opens a no-container tab. I believe this should be the actual container of the active tab, instead of a no-container.

Does anyone know how to disable Firefox from opening two windows when clicking on a link through a mail application? If Firefox is closed, every time I click on a link through a mail application, Firefox opens the link AND a second window set to my homepage. It is so annoying. Any tips?

Don't know if this is connected to my previous question about being unable to login to bt email. After refreshing Firefox, left click on a link opens it in same tab instead of separate tab. In options, Open links in tabs instead of new windows and When you open a link in a new tab, switch to it immediately are both checked. This is happening on my pc and laptop. I know I can centre wheel click or right click and open in new tab but why has behavior of years stopped working. I am fast losing faith in Firefox.

Firefox was hanging up. I got frustrated and I ended the session using task manager. On restart my windows came back, but the tabs were missing the page information. I ended the firefox session again, and did a restart of windows for good measure, hoping to get everything restored.

Then, when windows restarted, I restarted firefox, and I was presented two options - SAFE MODE, or REFRESH. I did SAFE MODE. Things looked ok, so I ended that session, and tried restarting again, hoping to restart normally, without SAFE MODE on. I got the same two options again - SAFE MODE or REFRESH. So, I thought REFRESH would get me back to my prior session. Nope. That reloaded a bunch of things, like bookmarks, etc. and gave me a new session.

So, I looked under the three line menu. No ability to RESTORE PREVIOUS SESSION!

I also looked in my profile as found in ABOUT:SUPPORT - PROFILE FOLDER, and in my SESSIONSTORE-BACKUPS folder in my profile folder my RECOVERY.baklz4, and my RECOVERY.jsonlz4 have todays date as DATE MODIFIED, but only are 33kb each - way to small for the hundreds of tabs I had open in multiple windows - I believe.

So, do I have any other recovery session folders available that I might be able to use?

hi guys and girls of mozilla,

ive a little issue with a custom homepage i made which i want to use as my new tab page. im on linux and use firefox 76.0.1 (64bit).

i set up a autoconfig.cfg file with this code:

// var {classes:Cc,interfaces:Ci,utils:Cu} = Components;

  • set new tab page */

try { Cu.import("resource:///modules/AboutNewTab.jsm"); var newTabURL = "/home/joe/.mozilla/firefox/h75u1z1z.default/startpage/index.html"; AboutNewTab.newTabURL = newTabURL; } catch(e){Cu.reportError(e);} // report errors in the Browser Console

i also set up a autoconfig.js file with this code:

// First line should be a comment pref("general.config.filename", "autoconfig.cfg"); pref("general.config.obscure_value", 0); pref("general.config.sandbox_enabled", false);

theyre saved in lib/firefox and lib/firefox/defaults/prefs

i then put firefox to open new tabs with a blank page. now it works like this. when i click open a new tab i get a blank page. but in the urlbar is the file selected. now i only need to press enter and i have my new tab page.

the question now is- how can i force firefox to press enter for me. that it opens the file directly and doesnt need me to press enter.

can u spot any errors in the code i copied from a thread in reddits/r/firefox CSS forum?

or is there a setting i can change which makes it the page opens by itself?

ill add two pics- one when i just opend the new tab and one after i clicked enter

I am trying to restore the tabs from a crashed session. I have successfully done this in the past by renaming the lost session in the sessionstore-backups folder, but this is no longer working for me. I have the session file I need, but even when I rename it, when I reopen firefox it keeps reverting to the most recent session which has none of my tabs. I have tried deleting every file in the sessionstore folder except the one I want firefox to use, but it will not use it; it overwrites it every time with the more recent session. How can I get firefox to load the session file I want? Thanks for your help

Whenever I load a website, there is a brief left-to-right blue streak across the tab when that website loads. I would prefer to not have this, it's not matchy with anything else on my desktop and I find the animation distracting.

It doesn't seem to be connected to any of my add-ons. I'm using the Firefox Light theme. Is this just a theme thing, and I should get a different one? Or is there a way to get this to stop.I checked about:config and past forum discussions and didn't see anything obvious. Thank you!

I have just updated to Firefox 17; I have used it back from version 3, and I feel it's time to say goodbye to Mozilla Firefox!

I have used a lot of other programs, and I don't think there is any other program that updates as frequently as Firefox - every couple of months there is a new version!

It's not bad thing itself, but very, very bad thing is that, each time I update Firefox, one third of my plugins and addons are not compatible with new version! That completely ruins my joy of surfing the internet; since updating from Firefox 14 to current Firefox 17, I have lost at least five addons that were very important for me; the last one, now, is Tab Mix Plus, it's not compatible with Firefox 17, and my Firefox now looks completely different from what I'm used to, I cannot use it!

This has become unbearable any longer: I cannot cope with constant updates of program and addons, and finding replacements for addons that became incompatible! I want to browse internet, and not always to maintain something within Firefox!

You offered me some half of dozen years of excellent experience of browsing the web, but you've become too user enemy for my liking; , so bye, bye, Firefox!

I installed ShopAtHome toolbar, now Yahoo has hijacked my new tab. How do I fix this to the last visited tabs?

Multiple forums have addressed the fact that Yahoo is hijacking new tabs. I installed the ShopAtHome toolbar - which I love - but then I get Yahoo installed (mysteriously and uninvited).

I would like the new tab to reset to its default of: either the panels of previous sites, or the blank page. The prior issues relating to netassistant do not work.

Any help would be appreciated.
