How do I find/search for a "container tab" name from hundreds open among multiple windows?

(Previously asked -- but not answered -- in a roundabout way: "Searching for open tabs among many windows needs improvement", https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1360159 )

I find myself, surprisingly, juggling between hundreds of open tabs on topics of interest -- and FF remains nice and stable!

Lately, I have been increasingly assigning/using "container tabs" (vs New Private Window) for shopping, banking, etc. -- very handy.

However, I noticed that I can no longer FIND any of those tabs by name using the search feature of the "List all tabs" button (or via the "%" method). Only traditional/normal tab names appear to be searchable from among those open among multiple windows.

This is rather crippling time-and-effort-wise. I find myself unnecessarily duplicating already-open tabs simply because I can't easily find the "old" ones anymore.

Someone previously suggested trying the extension "Tab Manager Plus"; but as I reported in my previous post, (for me) it caused hesitations and overall FF response became sluggish with my laptop's fan kicking in often -- unacceptable. (Also, apparently no updates since 2018, and I see recent user comments of losing windows full of tabs.)

Is there any good built-in solution I've missed?

Hello,

I urgently ;-) need a shortcut to switch between open browser windows. It seems to be one of the basic ones, but is nowhere to be found.

Solutions using Tilde do not work for me becuse it's not available on my Apple keyboard.

Why not use Command +< or Command + > respectively, like many other apps do?

And why not at least let me configure that in a simple fashion myself???

Thanks for any solution!

It's so frustrating that the keyboard shortcut for closing tabs is right beside the one to quit Firefox. I've lost countless hours because of this, and it's so easy to accidentally do. Is there a way to keep this from happening? A simple "Are you sure" confirmation dialog would be great, or I really like the Chrome "hold command-Q" to exit feature. This seemingly simple function is proving extremely difficult to accomplish.

Yes, I'm aware of session restore, but (1) It does not preserve my window arrangement. I use multiple desktops for various tasks, and they each have related browser windows. (2) I need to see webpages exactly as they were when I opened them. Sessions expire, dynamic pages are refreshed, content is removed etc. That is all lost.

I do not want to disable session restore completely. It can still be useful. But, I do not want to trigger session restore automatically every time. Manual activation is ideal.

regarding: "browser.tabs.warnOnClose" I do not want a warning for closing multiple tabs. I often have many windows open and that warning gets annoying. It also doesn't prevent me from accidentally quitting when I only have one tab open.

I tried setting browser.warnOnQuit to true, but it's ignored.

I simply want a confirmation when I use the keyboard shortcut to QUIT. That's it. No side effects. Can Firefox do this?

I had Firefox opened in a main windows with maybe 50 tabs of tabs I wanted to look at (documentaries, stand-up shows, stuff from work etc). I opened a second window and while navigating in the second window I mistakenly close the main. As one does, I hit Open recently closed window. Guess what? Firefox opens a window from yesterday and a few more empty ones, but not the one I just closed. Can someone help me with this?

Hi guys, I have a problem with firefox. The option to undo close tab (whether its the shortcut, or the right click on tabs menu) doesn't work correctly for me, it always open a randomly closed page from a while ago and not the recently closed one.

I thought it was a problem with how I close the tabs (ie. if i click on the x or ctrl+w, or the mouse wheel) but it doesn't make a difference, the undo closed tab still doesn't work right.

I tried looking for a solution on here and online but found nothing concrete. So, I appreciate any help.

I searched this forum but couldn't find an answer. I have "restore last session" turned on, but I'd like Firefox wouldn't reopen my last visited site after I close the browser by closing the last tab. In other words: if I close the browser by a regular means (by clicking the rightmost upper X, or by right-clicking the taskbar and choosing close window) it goes to the last viewed site when I reopen the browser – and that's ok – but when I close the last tab and the browser closes, I don't want to see this site again when I reopen Firefox. Is there a way to achieve this? By the way, this is the standard behavior in Google Chrome.

When I start trying to open multiple tabs at once Firefox autofills the address bar with the address I was at when I hit CTRL+T. I don't know if I'm just doing it too fast, or what is going on but it's really frustrating.

For example, I'll go to reddit, while reddit is loading hit the hotkeys for a new tab, and it'll have reddit autofilled when I want it to be blank because I want to go to twitter or something. It's pretty frustrating and I wind up opening more tabs than I'd like and closing the incorrect ones. Would appreciate some assistance please.

Hi. When (re)opening a number of bookmarks, e.g. from MySessions v2020.7.0 or OneTab v1.29, just recently, not before, it opens them in reverse order. Is there a way to adjust/fix/set that list top becomes left most and list bottom right most in the horizontal list of tabs? I am sure it is not those two extensions, since it worked before. Would be great if FF had a feature to reverse all tabs t1, t2, t3...t97, t98, t99 to reverse order t99, t98, t97...t3, t2, t1. How can this be done with existing FF, tools or extensions? Or is there a setting in about:config that would allow correct/reversed (re)opening order? Thank you!

I'm using Firefox as my browser, on a desktop Mac (OS). Please write out any possible solutions to my problem with as much detail as possible, step-by-step. (I'm recovering from a concussion, and at least for now, I need instructions to be very detailed. Thanks.)

I did a Refresh. (I've never done a Refresh before.) In the past, my tabs would be automatically restored if I quit and then re-opened Firefox. I assumed this would happen after the Refresh. My tabs did not get restored, and Restore Previous Session (in History) is greyed out. Same when I click on the button that looks like three horizontal lines, at the top right-hand corner of the menu bar. When I went to the Restore Tabs page that comes up when you re-open Firefox, the box that usually shows the tabs from the previous session was empty.

Please can someone help me get back the tabs I had just prior to doing the Refresh.

Is there a way to get access on desktops to the saving tabs to collection feature already available on firefox for android version? I find it really useful feature. In fact, I've had to start creating my collections on Edge explorer until see this feature in Firefox... Really useful to get back to your research about certain topic. A way for me to be able to close tabs early and keep all much organized. I see it much more useful for desktop than for mobile version...

Hi,

I synced my tabs from my old laptop to my android device. All the tabs were there in the "synced tabs" folder. I did not open the tabs in my phone thinking they are all safe there (I didn't know about the 7 day sync period, although I restored well within that period).

When the laptop got repaired, I tried to sync back the tabs from the android device. But as soon as sync was done, within few minutes, the synced tabs were gone from both the phone as well as the newly repaired laptop..!! Apparently the sync was again done and overwrite/erased the saved tabs in my android phone. This happened since I did not open any of the tabs in my android device. All of the saved tabs were gone.

I feel, this feature of saving open tabs is a myth. There should be some feature to restore the synced tabs from an older date. Just like a restore point in windows work.

Due to this 'myth', i lost a lot of work that was done over many months.

Before rolling out a feature, thorough testing should have been done. Loopholes like these should have been taken into consideration and patched.

Thanks Aj
