Hello,

I'm currently trying to log-in on Postman application. This aplication when log-in button is pressed a tab on firefox is open with the postman site log-in. The trouble comes when trying to re-open the tab on another container. It breaks the log-in. To resolve this I would be interesting to some way to choose an specific or default container for new or incoming tabs.

When I want to open a bookmark in a new tab, there's no Settings button. If I'm in a tab I wish to keep open, the Settings button is there. I'm able to use it to open the new tab, and then I can't go anywhere unless I know the address, because I can't access my bookmarks. I've been waiting a long time for this to be fixed. I don't see any logical reason for this, so I wonder if I'm missing something or if a setting got changed. Please help me access my bookmarks from a fresh tab.

I'm on Windows 10. Every time I open up a new tab, I cannot see either the saved links or bookmarks. It's like they have been wiped from the page. I can still access the bookmarks. I've tried the about:newtab and about:home fixes but neither have worked. None of my extensions are doing it, either.

Thanks for your time.

Good morning, There are multiple questions. 1. Now everytime I click on a link in an article it opens a completely different page of firefox instead of just making a tab on the line with all the other tabs. It also loads that new page half way off the screen on the right hand side and I have to drag it over, open it full sized and then screw around with cutting and pasting the url into a new tab on the old firefox page. How do I stop it from doing this? It's realllllly annoying.

2. It is screwing up some of my graphics by putting horizontal lines into the picutres to where you can't view it. Specifically on jigsaws from jigsawplanet.com. I work on a gaming site and this really impacts my ability to do my job (or have fun).

3. One one particular site HEXrpg.com, I set my view at 120% and every page I go it it reverts it back to 100%. This did NOT used to happen and it only seems to be happening on that particular site..... However, it could be on other sites as I've had to set my entire computer to 120% now so I can read the posts on that one site and now everything is too big for my screens in the other sites.

I don't know what you guys were trying to do, but whatever it was, can you please put it back to the way it was before this last (possibly last 2) updates. If not I'm going to have to switch to Edge or Chrome and I really don't want to have to do this because I've been with Firefox forever. HELP!?! Deborah DeVane

Quite a few news websites seem to be circumventing Firefox’s reader view feature. This includes my favorite tech website arstechnica.com which insists on using text that is too small to read. Now reader view can only be activated on this website on desktop. This is now the case with a bunch of websites recently. I hope you guys are working on this. Thanks again!

hi, back a month later after posting this ( https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1387447 )

i didn't get a chance to implement the solution because by the time i had received it, i had already opened everything back up manually, and closed out firefox multiple times (when i first started up and noticed missing tabs), which i presume created a new session. i can soundly say its happened and i think i've pinned down the issue. it seems that when i update firefox, it restarts tabs from around the time of the previous update. is there something that could be causing this? i've scrounged my session back up data, and none of them contain my previous tabs, and my alternate session doesn't either. my actual previous tabs are shown in my recent history, so there should be no reason it opens tabs from august right? this time after the update firefox disabled all of my add-ons and my theme, which it has never done to me before.

(i also noticed two login.json from may and june respectively that have been labelled corrupt. could that be an issue? my latest one however, seems uncorrupted, from the day of and day before posting this reply.)

if you could kindly help me, please do. thank you in advance.

Is it possible? Like, for example, you click a link on Discord then it open a new tab AND it makes it the active window.

It would be a bit like this config "browser.link.open_newwindow.override.external" set to "3" not for a window but for a tab + it would make this window the active one.

Even though these two systems offer very similar features, they can’t work across platforms. This means that new features like Message Reacting, Typing Bubbles, and Read Receipts will not work when an Android is texting an iPhone, or vice versa. This does not mean that iPhones and Androids can’t text, however.

3 days ago I closed my main Firefox Windowby accident, while other windows were open. To restore, I just used the normal "recently closed windows" option and reopened my windows. Immediatly, all my tabs that were assigned to "Containers" were duplicated, and I lost the "Simple Tab Groups" order. For each tab on a container, a second was created without an assigned container. Fine, i thought, just closed 130 tabs that were unassigned, and moved them to the right Groups again. Next day, i open firefox, same thing. All tabs duplicated (but now on the proper groups). Closed 130 duplicated tabs and moved on. But I can't spend 5 minutes each day doing it! Testing more, I realized that every time I close and reopen Firefox, all the tabs assigned to a Container get a copy. If i close and reopen firefox 10 times, i will get 10 copies of all tabs, with no assigned containers to them, ending up with 1300 unnecessary tabs.

I just cant figure out how to fix it. Any advice?
