Firefox keeps pinning ads for random pages that I have never visited. It happens inconsistently, but sometimes when I open Firefox there will be a random ad page pinned. Even if I unpin it, and reopen Firefox the same ad page will be pinned again. I have tried looking it up in settings but could find anything, that make it pop up.

So Amazon audible popped up a firefox session with a talking book after I shutdown. So firefox saved this session to restore next time.

I shut down firefox while I:

1. I understand the file sessionstore.jsonlz4 in session store is a backup of the old tabs. So I saved it

2. I then copied it to the sessionstore folder under the profile. (I only have one folder under the profile folder so it must be the correct target). As a precaution, I also copied the file and renamed it previous.jsonlz4 and recovery.jsonlz4

But I cant get firefox to load it. Firefox stubbornly loads the tabs i just used and then creates new files called previous.jsonlz4 and recovery.jsonlz4 which overwrites my backed up files

So my question is how do I make firefox use the backup file I saved?

TIA/gary

The default browser behavior when I click on a link on a page is to open a pop up window in the current tab. In these cases I'm clicking a link on the pg to my social media account in order to publish a new post linking to my own content.

The new unwanted behavior on clicking the link is for it to open my social media account in a new tab. I want clicking that link to open a pop up of my social media account in the current tab. Is there any about:config setting controlling this, which I can change?

Hi,

First of all, I should ask: Is there a such feature gained with settings or addons that highlights my previous tab, that I didn't closed, but moved from to current tab?

For example: I have 20 tabs opened. And I'm lurking between them so I need to know what was the previous tab where I was before moved to the current tab.

If this feature does not exists I kindly offer to implement it.

Thanks

If I click on any link to Facebook, Facebook then takes over that tab so I cannot return to where ever I was before i clicked on the Facebook link. For example, I have a tab for DuckDuckGo. If I do a search and a link to Facebook appears, and I click on it, I go to the whatever the link is pointed to - but the BACK Button will NOT take me back to DuckDuckGo. The history for that Tab only shows the Facebook page. How can I correct this?

Hello, Yesterday I accidentally removed the icon that allowed me to quickly open a new window by the tab on the right. I was looking for how to turn it back on, and unfortunately I could not find such information or option in the settings. It makes it very easy for me to work and search for information. In the attachments I will send a screenshot of what it looks like with me now and what icon I am referring to; I downloaded a picture from the Internet where it is. Thank you in advance for your help.

I use Firefox on Linux, on a wide screen, usually with multiple windows open at the same time.

Specifically, I have a smallish window containing a calendar view. It's annoying that new tabs get created in that small window, because I have to move them manually to another window and resize that. I'd like to be spared the clicks and drags to get that done, or always needing to remember to move the focus to another Firefox window after doing something with the calendar.

Is there a way to accomplish the following: 1. When I've got a Firefox window open that I don't want new tabs in 2. And I open a link from outside Firefox (say, from a mail in Thunderbird or from my IDE) 3. A new tab doesn't get created in the window from 1. 4. Even if that window has the focus. 5. Instead, the URL gets opened in either a new tab in another Firefox window or a new Firefox window

I'm fine with a stable add-on, if that's what it takes to do this.

Any ideas greatly appreciated!

Hello all,

As the subject suggests, I’m trying to figure out how I can recover about 180 tabs I lost while the inactive tabs setting was enabled. I don’t remember Firefox crashing - I just noticed a few days ago that all my inactive tabs were gone and have since been trying to find a way to recover them, with no success.

Which is why I’m here. Is there a way to access Firefox’s iOS files? From my research, I’m thinking it’s possible info on tabs might still be stored somewhere in those files.

Thanks in advance!

When you're in a fullscreen tab, like a youtube video, and use the command for a new tab (ctrl + t) you are not directly in the address-bar in that new tab.

If you're in a non-fullscreen tab and use the command, then you are directly in the address-bar.

This is inconsistent and annoying. If you are watching an English youtube video and you come across a word you don't know, and you press "ctrl + t" to get to a new tab, you're not in the address-bar to type something like "meaning word".

Is this a bug? Is this an intended feature? How do I fix this? Is there a setting for this in about:config?
