Has anyone noticed for a while now that sometimes when selecting as tab, the page remains blank? It appears the page load process is interrupted. The url is erased from the navigation field. I use the and the "Reload in address bar" addon, which puts a "Reload Current Page" button in the navigation field, and that button disappears as well, along with the other "Reload Current Page" button on the navigation toolbar.

Also, when trying to login here, I got this error message. See attached

Playing youtube video on Firefox has become a hazard. The power consumption sharply rises whenever a video is plying AND (specifically) when the this youtube tab is the one open (current). As soon as I move to another tab and let the video continue playing this problem disappears and resource consumption looks normal. Then if I go back to the youtube tab then it spikes again sharply.

It has been like this for a week or couple of days now.

When I was voice chatting with my friends, I wanted to screen share a tab in firefox, but I couldn't. It didn't say anything, the only thing I could share was the voice chatting app and my recording software. I was also going to screen share my game so I can show it to my school friends but it didn't show the game I wanted to play. I was also in a tutor and was about to share a tab but there was no tab share option. And yes, i did set permission to share my screen. I don't know how to fix this.

I'm using a tab handling extension (Simple Tab Groups) that uses the 'hidden tab' feature. I can see dozens of tabs hidden by the extension. I want to get rid of some of them. Is there a way to close more than one? Currently I'm only trying closing one by one on the drop-down menu...

Hi,

I am using custom links ('thunderlink://...') with a registered handler. This always worked well and still does.

However it seems like the newest releases of firefox (not sure when exactly it started) open a new tab, with just the link in the address bar, before calling the handler. Which leaves me with unnecessary, blank, open tabs.

Any idea how I can suppress the opening on a new tab on such custom link?

Thanks!

Middle clicking autocomplete suggestions in the search bar opens them in new tabs but clears my search

The use-case where this happens most for me is when I want to open two different email inboxes at once:

  • I type "mail" into the search bar in a new tab.
  • The autocomplete suggestions show from my history the two email inboxes.
  • I middle click one of the links
  • Firefox opens the link in a new tab, I am still focused on the new tab (this is wanted), but the search bar is cleared, and I must now type "mail" again to bring up the suggestions again.

The previous browser I used did not do this, and coming over from that browser it makes it quite annoying to have to type "mail" twice. I do not want to put the links into bookmarks and access them that way.

Today I updated my Firefox Developer Edition to version 89.0b2 and now I just can not look at this browser anymore, "Inspired new tab design" is taking too much space and now became largest and at the same time least information-dense panel in my entire desktop! I searched around the web for a bit in hopes that I will find a theme or an add-on that will revert this particular change but no luck. I really want to revert to old UI look (at least tabs bar), there should be default theme or option to get back to old style. After some investigation I found userChrome.css but don't really want to install it (maybe this is actually the way of doing this kind of styling). Please help me revert UI design to old one.

It's very often nearly impossible to activate scrolling on the tab overview page on my s7 edge. The scrollbars don't appear and the page seems to be fixed. The whole overview page itself is moved down the screen instead of scrolling the content. This is annoying. Any help is welcome.
