Hello, When i create a new tab (cntrl + T) I can no longer just start typing and have that be a google search. Now I need to manually click in the search bar. Is there a way to enable it so creating a new tab automatically puts the text into the search bar field?

Not sure why this stopped working, maybe a recent update. Thanks for your help.

I just reinstalled my operative system, and with that my Firefox settings got reset. I know there is an entry in about:config to prevent ads from opening new tabs and pop ups without authorization, even from legit websites like the login pop-up windows when doing a sign in in Google, in those cases to allow the windows it's needed to click on the lock icon next to the URL bar and allow it from there. The problem is that I don't remember the name of that setting and I have spend an hour looking for it on Google.

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!!!!

Yesterday I had Picture-In-Picture (shortened into pip for next mentions) working on youtube, then after one day, PIP no longer works on any of the websites, including youtube. I tried disabling and enabling pip, entering troubleshoot mode, and none of them worked. Not reinstalling because it will be annoying to log in everywhere I've had account at.

Any solution?

So for starters I am fully aware of the "When you open a link, image or media in a new tab, switch to it immediately" setting, it is turned off.

What I want to do is be able to open new tabs from my bookmarks bar without immediately switching to them. Regardless of middle mouse click or right click and open new tab. Considering the mentioned setting is turned off I would assume that would solve the problem but it hasn't. It has however made it so when I'm browsing or looking through search engine results it doesn't open a new tab right away. But when I have a home/new tab open and am opening tabs from my bookmarks bar, it unfortunately switches to the new tab immediately. I have had this working on a previous install but am stumped as how to replicate.

Any help appreciated, thank you!

Recently the V-like icon/button appeared at the right-hand end of the top line of my Firefox windows. This Tab Search could be invaluable to some, but I have no need for it. If I start to get too many tabs I just use another window. However, I click on it constantly when I intend to minimize the window. I have been clicking on the - icon/button in EVERY WINDOWS APPLICATION since Windows began, and as it has ALWAYS been the LEFT-MOST item in the UPPER RIGHT CORNER I haven't had to think about it in decades. But now it isn't the left-most, that is now tab search.

Please, please, PLEASE provide a configuration option to remove Tab Search from the top line.

Thanks!

How to make "Reopen Closed Tab" actually reopen closed tabs again?

Up until Firefox 116, Reopen Closed Tab (Ctrl+Shift+T) would reopen closed tabs, and Reopen Closed Window (Ctrl+Shift+N) would reopen closed windows. There was a clear bifurcation, so I could freely close windows and not worry about it polluting my tab history in another window.

The latest change has thrown out that advantage, and now Reopen Closed Tab reopens both tabs and windows, while Reopen Closed Window still just reopens windows. This makes the later essentially useless and the former much more difficult to use for me.

I assume this was done to just continue copying Chrome in all respects since that's how it handles it, but the changelog just vaguely states, "This change is in anticipation of upcoming changes to recently closed tabs."

Does anyone know if there's a setting to separate the two functions again?

Is there a way to always show the tab close button on the tabs? Or perhaps to show the button on hover of the tab? Chrome does this and I find that very helpful, in cases where I want to close a tab and do not want to re-open that page.

Some context: When you have many tabs open (I know, who does that?) and you want to close some of them, but do not want to select those tabs, currently you can right-click and scroll through the menu to the `Close Tab` option. This is slow and a bit clunky. The `Close Tab` menu option is buried in the bottom-middle of the list.

This issue is somewhat complicated by the fact that I use the excellent Auto-Tab Discard extension to discard/sleep tabs. (https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/auto-tab-discard/) So when a tab is discarded, and you click on it, the tab reloads. Which is silly when you just want to close it.

Anyone aware of a way to always show the close-tab button, or show on hover?

Thanks!

it's extremely annoying to have to stop what i'm doing and play "lets find the active tab" when i have tons of youtube videos qued in open tabs. in opera, the logic is there out of the box, but in firefox, it doesn't exist. why such logic wouldn't exist is beyond me, but i see this as an annoying problem that needs fixed. i want to simply glance up at the tabs and see which one is playing without having to spend time digging through the open tabs to find the one that's playing or having to freakin memorize which one it was i don't have time for that.

i followed the guide in this thread: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1291998 i did exactly everything as instructed but it did absolutely nothing, no change at all.

On some websites (namely, twitter), middle clicking a post opens it in a new tab. However, whenever this happens, the new tab is always focused, is there a way to prevent this from happening?

This does not occur on websites such as Youtube.com, where middle clicking a video opens it in a new tab, but does not focus it. This is the preferred result.

Likewise, when middle clicking a bookmark, the newly created tab is also immediately focused. Is this preventable aswell?

Thank you for your time.

In the new version of the Developer Edition the options "close tabs to the right" and "close other tabs" are in a sub-menu named "Close Multiple Tabs" inside the context menu. Is there's a way to change this so that they will appear directly in the main context menu? I use "close tabs to the right" often and I find this very annoying.
