How many tabs can I open at a time when using Firefox 3.0.5 with Windows Xp?

Posted

I tried to open 25 tabs in one window using firefox 3.0.5 with windows xp. It would only let me open 10. Tabs I added after 10 were added, but tabs at the begining were erased. What do I have to do to open all the tabs that I may need without changing the firefox or windows version? Do I need to open a new browser window for every 10 tabs?

Start Firefox in Troubleshoot Firefox issues using Safe Mode to check if one of your add-ons is causing your problem (switch to the DEFAULT theme: Tools > Add-ons > Themes).
See Troubleshoot extensions, themes and hardware acceleration issues to solve common Firefox problems and Troubleshoot issues with plugins like Flash or Java to fix common Firefox problems

If it does work in Safe-mode then disable all your extensions and then try to find which is causing it by enabling one at a time until the problem reappears.
You can use "Disable all add-ons" on the Troubleshoot Firefox issues using Safe Mode start window to disable all extensions.
You have to close and restart Firefox after each change via "File > Exit" (Mac: "Firefox > Quit"; Linux: "File > Quit")
