This used to work on my Mac using Firefox and Mac Mail but now it doesn't. Opening regular links are unaffected. I can still click and open easily. This only happens when I try to use the feature, to open links behind mail. When I right click nothing happens. Nothing is opened.

I set up sync on my previous laptop and synced with two other PCs some time ago. A couple of months ago I damaged that laptop and it no longer works. However, the tabs open on that laptop when it died are still appearing in "Tabs from other devices" on my new laptop and the two other PCs.

How can I stop this from happening?

OS Windows Vista; Firefox 27.0 Suddenly, new tab has a load of big size icons and looks like a copy of MS Windows8. Definately not a look I could ever want. Loads of icons - most I have never used nor visited or visit on a rare basis. so I have no idea where they were selected from. I did not select this options. I have bookmarks and use them. I want the same blank tab to appear. No idea why a new tab should have anything other than blank. Located info to switch this off. There is no option to switch it off - only add more tabs or mess about with layout and theme. so these instructions are not correct or I have located bug of extreme annoyance.

So I attempted to change the about:config as per instructions. browser.newtab.url;about:blank however, this does not fix. I rechecked and it is set as about:blank. So I tried reopening Firefox, but when I select new tab, I still get all the advertising icons.

So what else do I need to fix in about:config to remove absolutely everything to do creating new tabs inbany other way than blank and ready for use.

I'm using thousands of tabs, of course with the option "don't load tabs until selected" activated so FF is supposed not to have to load really more content in memory compared if I was just opening one tab.

But my Firefox is using more than 2GB of memory just to boot up i.e. loading the list of the tabs with their little icon, a tab and the extensions. I tried to boot FF in "without modules" mode it doesn't even manage to boot. That was quite annoying but OK but now my ff is randomly CRASHING (I am probably around 3000 now) ! The memory problem is here for a lot of time but the crash is new but I believe it's more the tab number than the new version responsible for it.

I cleared cache and cookies, it doesn't solve anything.

How I'm suppose to solve this problem ? Just deleting my beloved tabs ?

I believe there's a deeper problem in the way Firefox manage "this unload until selected" option because it isn't acting as if theye were not here.

My system is otherwise quite stable except my system clock can go back in time a little bit, is it a possible reason for the crashes ? Is there an 'hardcoded' limit number of tabs opened ? Shall I post on Bugzilla where no one seems to listen to anything ? Or you just consider this a 'non normal usage' and do not even care ?

Thanks to anyone helping me and sorry for any mistake in english.

PS: FF lacks a simple way of knowing how many tabs you've got.

I was using an older version of FF because the newer versions had messed up private browsing and I had the option of deciding if I wanted tabbed browsing. I switched to a newer version because a lot of sites didn't work with the older version.

I went into tools - tabs and checked what I used to use not to get tabbed browsing. Doesn't work.

Please tell me how to get rid of tabbed browsing and how to switch back and forth to private and regular browsing without opening a new tab/window.

If I can't get rid of tabbed browsing I guess I'll muddle along with an older version.

I'd rather not have to install an add-on that mimics previous versions where the tabs had color. Thanks.

(edited for language. please read Forum rules and guidelines -m)

I've always had my tabs below my address bar and I find it incredibly annoying and inefficient to have it above my address bar as well as above my bookmarks bar.

Before this update I could fix this terribly designed annoyance by painstakingly going into about:config and setting browser.tabs.onTop to false instead of for say having the OPTION to change this in settings. This was not very obvious to someone that likes OPTIONS rather than being forced to conform to bad new design decisions, but at least it worked.

With this latest update however, going into about:config and setting browser.tabs.onTop to false no longer fixes the now mucked up tabs tool bar being on top of rather than below the address bar.

Is there any other way to change this, or am I stuck with this?

I know that firefox once put the tabs on top, but I had that fixed with setting in "about:config" the value for "browser.tabs.onTop" to "false". Now, after upgrading Firefox to v.29 this entry is still set to the false value, however, I can't get the tabs below the adressbar (which is super annoying). Any ideas how to resolve this?

Bring me back my old firefox UI. I hate firefox 29. It doesn't help me do things quicker and the those bl**dy curvy tabs! Try that with 20+ tabs open...

Please, please revert this retro step in your next version. There's nothing that I'd call an improvement. And a leaky bandaid in the form of an addon is waste of good intentions.

Dear Mozilla - PLEASE put the TABS BAR at the top of each window BACK the way that it was in version 28. That means I would like to see you:

* restore the FULL DEFINITION LINES around EACH tab, not just the tab that you are currently looking at
* restore the TITLE of the tab that you are currently looking at to the TOP of the tabs bar, centered
* restore the BOLD TYPEFACE to the font-style used as the title for each tab. Enough of this dimmed typeface BS for the tab title fonts. You know what BS stands for right?
You ask the question "What do you want your Web to look like?"  Well I don't think anybody really cares about what I want the Web to look like, but I would very much like YOU to care about what I want my WEB BROWSER to look like - and it's NOT what you have done with version 29.0.  Gee thanks for your time. JB

I've been using Firefox for a long time, and Firefox for Android for a while too. I loved tabs, it is one of my favorite features in Firefox.

Ever since I bought my tablet, I've used Firefox. I often will click on a link to open it into a new tab. These tabs are then opened in the background, and I work through them one-by-one basis.

Today, however, it stopped working that way. If I click on a link and open it in a new tab, it automatically brings that page to the front, not in the background like I want it to.

I've searched the settings, Mozilla's faqs, and other forums, but no one seems to be having a simular problem. I know I didn't change anything in the settings to cause this.

Any advice as to help me get new tabs to open in the background again would be great.

Thanks so much! -MouseKitty

Okay, I've asked this question on previous posts, regarding a problem with tabs and web pages loading.

I still have NO solution and its extremely frustrating. I dont want to hear the usual "script" to do this and that cause NONE of those have worked. and PLEASE read what I've written BEFORE you respond to me.

I have a Sony Vaio laptop with windows 7 installed. I log onto my home page on FF. I click to open a "new tab" I have a blank page (which I'm supposed to have) I click a bookmark to open it on that page. I just stays blank, and loads and loads and nothing comes up (or if it does come up after a bit, the page is all "off" and the margains are crooked) but 99% of the time, NOTHING LOADS. I then have to hit the "reload" button in order to get the page to load and it does.

Question: Would YOU want to have to do that EVERYTIME you load a web page??? I dont think so. Talk about wasting a LOT of time.

So, can ANYONE PLEASE help me, and make it easy to follow. THANK YOU Sue
