Firefox does not retain the contents of the tabs open ?

Posted

Firefox does not retain the contents of the tabs open, whenever it changes between one and the other the browser reloads the content, this is extremely harmful to someone who uses a monthly limit internet plan. How do I disable this function?

Hello HEAL,

This sounds like one of the new features that came with the update to Firefox 67.0 :

https://blog.mozilla.org/blog/2019/05/21/latest-firefox-release-is-faster-than-ever/

If you want to disable this feature :

Type in the address bar about:config and press Enter (promise to be careful, if asked)

Type in the search bar and look for the preference :

browser.tabs.unloadOnLowMemory

and set its value to false

Then close and restart Firefox.

'Hope that helps ......
