During my work i often need to have massive amount of tabs, and want to switch between them quickly. And i cant find solution to tab size change, aside of "workarounds" that are "planned to be shit down". Is there a way to do it on permanent basis? I don`t mind those tabs be wide as they are now (although prefer them to be smaller, about 6x times) if i can, for example, have second and third string of tabs. That should be sufficient. But still i cant find a way to do so. I also saw mention of "user feedback" in another thread (currently locked) and would be willing to participate in said feedback.

I recently did update FF, and the + sign that was next to the tabs which allowed me to open a new tab disappeared. Is this a new "feature," or is there something I can do to get this back?. I've attempted to customized the toolbar, but there doesn't appear to be the + on that or a way to open a new tab - just a new window. Thanks in advance.

Say I have 50 tabs open and I accidentally close the bottom tab and hit "Undo" in the popup. Instead of placing the tab back into the spot it was previously in the list, it is placed at the very top of the list so I have to scroll way up to the top to open it. This wouldn't be the end of the world but you also can't rearrange tabs....

Title is pretty self-explanatory- I'm wondering if there is a way to save all current tabs upon exit of firefox, opening the same tabs when opening the browser again.

I've seen the same issue posted here dating back to 2011 but the answers provided don't seem to work for me.

Any help is appreciated.

Thanks!

I generally have loads of tabs open, and until recently this wasn’t an issue (perhaps until last upgrade?), but now, I can hardly move between tabs, the drop down list showing tab selection doesn’t work, nor does the left/right arrows. When I delete a tab, it leaves a ‘space’ where the tab was, only ‘back filling’ after I’ve opened up another tab to full screen mode and then minimised it again, at which point it goes to the very left-most tab and the only way I can get to tabs further down the list, is by deleting them in the manner described. I’ve actually got 2 laptops (Win 7 & 8.1), and it’s now happening on both of them. This might have something to do with memory management/the computer’s page file, but as things stand, I’m SERIOUSLY going to be switching to another browser - despite sticking with Firefox for many-a-year. BTW, I’m actually writing this on my phone, as I couldn’t now do it on either of my laptops (hence I’m currently unable to attach anything/provide screen grabs etc. I guess the only way to ‘clear’ this issue, would be to either close/restart Firefox or my laptop - neither of which I really want to do. Is there a way that I can use an earlier version of the browser and prevent it automatically updating? Yours, a now very frustrated longtime user,

Hello,

For a couple of months there has been a change in Firefox that I haven't had time to address.

When I do a search, and click on a link, it opens in a new tab, instead of the tab the link was in. I don't want multiple tabs open. It uses a lot of resources.

In the screenshot below, I did a search in the first tab, clicked a link, and the 2nd tab opened.

Anyone know what I am missing in the settings to stop this?

My normal process for opening a new tab is to press Ctrl+t and start typing the URL I want, then press enter once auto-complete shows the correct URL.

Sometimes I want to open a bunch of tabs at once, so while the first tab is loading I'll press Ctrl+t again and start typing in the next URL. If I wait until the page has started loading this works as expected, and the new tab opens with the cursor in an empty URL bar. However, if I press Ctrl+t immediately after pressing enter, the new tab's URL bar will contain the URL from the previous tab.

I can't always reproduce this reliably, it only happens when I'm working really quickly and I usually don't notice until I see that the URL bar contains both the old and part of the new address. It may also be more common with websites I haven't visited recently, I usually encounter it when paying bills which happens about once a month.

I'm on android nightly 94. Some recent changes started grouping tabs in two different way, both of which have degraded my experience in the app.

The first is grouping inactive tabs, I have Firefox set to not automatically close inactive tabs but I'm still kind of paranoid Firefox is going to close them anyway. Even if it won't, then it's just hiding them from view and makes me forget about them. I would rather they got some kind of icon or label instead.

The second is the very new search term labeling. This isn't a bad idea, but in practice it's absolutely miserable. My search terms are full to the brim with typos that google gracefully handles but firefox just leaves as incoherent labels on my tabs that makes no sense. Plus I will frequently reuse an open tab for a new search, meaning the label is completely irrelevant to what's now in the tab. The worst part is that the vast majority of my tabs are in a group labelled "other", meaning this feature just poinlessly segregates a handful of tabs and pulls them all the way to the top of the list. When it does decide a tab gets a label, that also means they're no longer in recently created order, so I have no sense of static positioning in the tab list. Plus it makes the tab list way longer overall.

Attached is a screenshot exhibiting my inability to type accurately on a phone keyboard and the search labels inability to correctly match the contents of a tab.

All in all, I think these features a huge downgrade in terms of usability, I have a short term memory disorder and I know it makes things much harder on me. I would like to be able to disable them somehow, but I can't find any toggles or anything anywhere.

Apparently Firefox doesn't realize the importance of Tabs to many of its users. As a Senior, I depend on the separation of the tabs. I see many others complaining about this issue, including those who rely on the separation for business purposes. FireFox chose to answer one user's request by saying they're moving on and basically, the user is just going to have to deal with it.

I love(d) Firefox, but it's time to say good bye. The tabs are a make/break issue for me. I've started the migration back to Microsoft Edge, which does allow tab separators, at least for now.

I hope that Firefox will reconsider at some point and allow us to put separators in just as it does on the Favorites Bar.

Thank you.

Ok I'm a big time safari user and have a pile of pinned tabs 50% were for work and the other 50% were personal. With the latest release of firefox with the security of cross site tracking you offered I moved all of my personal tabs to firefox.

My problem is that when I open firefox the pinned tabs are gone. I've added them 3 times they are pinned therfore I want the to stick around. why does firefox seem to throw them away.

I have very specific urls that I want to keep open and pinned tabs allow me to do this, If firefox can't keep them for me I will have to just go back to safari (no I don't want chrome)
