When I signed in this morning, Windows 10 updated to the new MS Edge.

I don't use Edge.

When it was finished, my Firefox tabs were no longer there.

How do I restore the previous session?

Apparently, Firefox 71 for Mac no longer allows tabs be dragged within a browser window to reposition them. Is there a way to fix this? Am I missing a setting?

Formerly, one could reorder tabs in a Firefox browser window by clicking and dragging. One could also click and hold a tab and move it to create a new window or take a tab from one window, click and drag it to another window. I am no longer able to do this on my Mac laptop, after updating to Firefox 71. I can't seem to find a special setting in Firefox 71. Is there one or a way to allow tab movement? Or do I need to revert to the previous version of Firefox?

Hello!

I have firefox 74 (64-bit), after one of the bluescreens that sometimes happen for my laptop, my Firefox tabs became very, very transparent.

This is it how it looked before: https://puu.sh/Fnzh1/b606c91b73.jpg

This is how it looks now: https://puu.sh/FLYyk/63fb3fab0e.jpg

As you can see, in both cases I have 3 tabs opened and some other firefox window below. However, opacity is very high in the first case and you almost don't see anything else aside of the 3 tabs opened, while in the current situation is like non-existent and if not the difference in the size of the tabs, you wouldn't even notice that these tabs are not from the current window, but from some other window below!

Can someone help me understand how it happened and, more importantly, how to fix this problem? I tried searching options for things like 'transparency', 'transparent', 'opacity', etc., but couldn't find anything :-(

Hi, I have a pinned tab on my firefox session. And every time I open Firefox it's there. But now I don' want it there, I've unpinned the tab and close it. But it keeps appearing pinned every time I open Firefox. My configuration for the start page is: Start of Firefox (Default) (or something similar, I don't have it in English) And my session is shared between my home and work computers (maybe this can be related) The pinned tab is open.spotify.com that opens another firefox window to log in. I haven't had any problem with other pinned tabs.

Thanks and sorry for my english.

How do I reopen a closed window that got erased in Firefox?

so after the new firefox update all of my settings were changed back to default, and I often use alot of different windows and tabs and leave them open, and then some times close them to speed things up and so the computer does not crash or over heat do to running multiple windows at once, then if i need to find a tab from another window i closed, i will go into the history panel and reopen that closed window that contained the tab or set of tabs.

I had my firefox set so it would hold on to the last 10 or so closed windows, but after the update it got set back to default so it only saved the last 3, and last night (7/1/19) it erased one of my closed windows (i had 4 windows open and then closed one) after i closed another window and then that window took the place of it and the other was just erased. i looked around and could not find an answer to solve this issue. i found one question that was similar and they were told to use 

'jeffersonscher'

i used that with all of my different json files and json update files and all the tabs were and sessions were showing up but i could not find any of the tabs from that one window that was closed and erased 

is there a way to reopen or find that closed window that got erased?

I updated firefox and i am guessing the settings defaulted IDK... but when i try to print labels from etsy or any selling plantform they do not open up in a new tab. instead, they open on the same page so I have to always use the "Go Back Page" button which is annoying. Previously I was just able to purchase the label and it would either download to my desktop or open in a new tab. But that doesnt happen anymore. Someone please help.

Thanks in advance

When I have 2 or more tabs open and try to go back and forth the tabs web pages close down and have to download the site info. Why don't the sites info stay up in the tab so I can go back and forth without having to wait each time I go back to a tab site. This makes researching very painful.

For some reason it updated without asking/notifying me about it. Then after it restarted it reset EVERYTHING. I don't see the Apps anymore, the shortcuts on toolbar are gone/back to defult items & I can't restore any of the past backedup sessions from the past week! I had at least 150+ tabs in 4 windows. And I already tried the "History> Closed tabs"restore thing. It only restores the LAST session, since I've been trying to fix/figure this out for at least 12 hours & nothing has restored the tabs from about 13 hours ago. Note: My Bookmarks & History (I've previously set to saved before the sessions I've had to restart during) are fine, it's only the many tabs that I can't restore is my sudden problem.

I have to manually shut down the computer to make it stop loading new tabs with the phone number. When I re-start I need to close all the tabs it created (last time it was over 60 tabs). I think it is a bug in Firefox, or my version is defective. I have not yet tried to re-install Firefox.

Bug report? Why does an additional tab open to, generally, the last site I visited, every time I restart Firefox?

After turning on the phone and returning to Firefox (Android remembering most of the apps I was previously running) it first takes me to a new tab on the end. It dosn't matter whether I had closed the tab as a not of interest (the site opens back up again) or the tab is still open (a second copy now opens), I am first taken to a new tab that I don't want to see. This is especially bad if I had closed an 'inappropriate' site that a misleading ad took me to and someone else wants to use my browser...

Last night I decided to check the monthly weather forecast just before going to bed. I googled, "weather" then clicked through to a website before realizing it wasn't the one I meant to click. I backed out and clicked another link further down the list. I thought to myself, "That's going to screw me up in future because the wrong website will be a visited link and I'll mistake it for my preferred site."

I'm a long-time Firefox user and upgraded to Quantum when it first came out. I had made a cursory inspection of some of the new features at that time, and remembered the little counter-clockwise arrow in the toolbar was supposed to be a shortcut for deleting a set time frame of browsing history. Remembering this, I clicked it and a little menu popped up with options for how much history to forget. I clicked the option to forget 5 minutes.

I'd had multiple windows with multiple tabs open and they all disappeared instantly. I don't know if the browser crashed or simply intended to restart itself, but when it reopened there was only one window with no tabs.

I quickly hit the three bar menu button in the top-right and navigated to Library > History > Recently Closed Windows. Both this menu and Recently Closed Tabs were entirely empty.

My secondary Windows were of secondary importance, but my first and primary window had a large number of pinned and ordinary tabs that I did not want to lose. Tabs that I have been saving for months - some more than a year. Many that I migrated from Firefox I to Quantum. In the past, they have always been recoverable through the History. Now they seem to have been erased without a trace because I clicked, "Forget 5 minutes" from the toolbar.

I tried using Window's System Restore to reset my computer to a restore point from yesterday, but this had no effect on my Firefox session. Is there any way to reverse this and recover the session I've been using daily since before Quantum had been released? Is it anywhere?
