Since I have purchased my new laptop I am no longer always given the option to open new links in new tabs rather then new windows. I have my settings/ preferences selected to open new links in new tabs. This is important to me. It is frustrating. I do hope there is an easy fix. Thank you.

Is there any way to change the behavior of the middle click when used on the forward and back buttons in the toolbar? Currently, it opens a tab in the foreground. I want it to open in the background. I know Ctrl + Shift + Left/Middle click works but I would prefer just using the middle mouse button.

I had this Problem several times.

I have set my browser to restore the last Sessen when reopening. Sometimes i am a bit stupid and am not closing my main window with many tabs and my pinned taps for mail, contacts, ... which i regularly need

Aaaand sometimes the "Chronik" (History) for recently closed Windows is empty, nothing opens in the sub menu and i have to manually recreate all my pinned tabs. And this is super annoying.

Today i returned to my pc. I opened firefox and I have seen that only my window with youtube and video streaming has reopened and i failed to restore the important window because nothing appeared in the sub menu.

Maybe you can help me. I like firefok but always restoring my pinned tabs is super annoying.

Regarding the sponsored ads in the new tab screen, the help link states, "Mozilla is paid when users click on sponsored shortcuts."

I just wanted to know if Mozilla is paid for each click or for each unique click. If I click it 100 times on the same computer, does Mozilla get more income than if I were to only click it once?

I'd love to have a feature where I can choose to open all my synced tabs on a new device at once instead of having it as a list under synced, as it would look on the original device I have them opened on. Maybe have that option to open all tabs under synced.

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!

I've mentioned this before but never have found good answers or feedback. Too often (well more than I'd like) I've closed Firefox and when I come back (start up Firefox again) my previous Tabs are lost. And, there is no option to restore previous session, nor closed tabs. Firefox keeps history, why can't it keep a history of previous tabs. And, why does it frequently not provide: Restore previous session. It seems that keeping a history previous tabs for a period of time isn't that difficult. Please enlighten me. This has happened to me (losing the previous tabs) more than care to remember.

The first Tab that pops up upon opening Firefox does not pick up the entire word/subject I am looking for. I use an Ipad/IOS and my search engine is Bing. When I type in the subject I am searching for, only half of the first word is picked up. I have to move to the next open tab to retype the word. It only happens on the first tab. Example: looking for Genealogy. It only picks up “ealogy” the first 3-4 letter ALWAYS MISSING. Can someone help. Thank you, Lynn

When I open a new tab in iOS, it does not appear automatically appear in the tab switcher, and only shows up if I toggle to private browsing and back to normal. Then once I go to a tab and open the tab switcher again, same problem. I had this problem start over a year ago, and in that time, after waiting through multiple updates to see if it would solve itself, I did an uninstall/reinstall (which did solve the problem for a few days before it came back), cleared website data, got a new phone, and did the uninstall/reinstall again. Nothing works except the uninstall/reinstall, which works for a week tops (not worth having to redo my pinned pages and open tabs every time though). Please help me figure out what’s going on here.
