Previously this seemed to driven by an addin which I removed. Now each time Firefox updates itself every 1-2 days this problem reappears without the original addin. Because the chinese characters float over the top of the tab name it makes it difficult to read the tab name is is plain irritating.

I have a complex home tab set up. It consists of 8 tabs. every day when I re log into my system and start firefox the home tabs are erases and I get Yahoo as my home screen. I re set my browsers tabs to my desired urls and go to options and say use current tabs as home. Every time I do this the next day it happens again. I will add that my home system is a Mac and work system is a PC they are synched. I am running 17.0.1. I am flipping out. How do I stop this problem

Each time I click the "Open a New Tab" button, how do I make FF open to my homepage and why isn't this default behavior?

Firefox does not default to your homepage when you manually open a new tab. It should do so. Is there a way to make FF do this? Is it an addon? If so, should this not be default behavior and just be incorporated into the browser?

There used to be a 'Recently Closed Tabs' in the old orange Firefox 28 menu. Now it seems version 29 only has a 'Restore Closed Tabs' menu item in its 'History menu'. There seems to be no option to restore individually closed tabs. I'm always closing a tab by accident, and the old method was very fast and easy.

Another person asked about this, but it seems his only solution was the 'Undo Closed Tabs Button' Add-On: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/997285?esab=a&as=aaq

In the old menu, you had access to your recent history, 'Clear Recent History', 'Restore Previous Session', 'Recently Closed Tabs', and 'Recently Closed Windows' in one easy to access spot. Now all that is buried, or doesn't seem to exist anymore.

Is there any way to re-configure the new menu to include at least the 'Recently Closed Tab's menu again?

I have literally tried everything, from the general option menu to directly using about:config to fix this problem. It happens all the damn time, and after dicking with it, I can usually fix it, but this time, I cannot get firefox to restore tabs from my previous session. I have it set to restore my previous session in the general options menu, it warns me when I close multiple tabs, private browsing is disabled. I don't know what else to do. I've scoured this site and tried every solution I could find, but none of them are working. Firefox had frozen, so I had to ctrl/alt/del to close it, and when I restarted it, my session was gone forever. I've done this before and it's never dicked with the settings. I realize that there's a 'restore previous session' option in the history, but I want it to load automatically. It's getting really bothersome with the amount of times firefox has done this.

For whatever reason there is a search engine embedded in the data of my Firefox software called "sweetpacks" or something of the sort. I cannot remove it and I am getting very irritated by this. I have uninstalled everything that registers on my computer, and I have even uninstalled and reinstalled the Firefox browser. Nothing is working to remove this.

I like to keep alot of tabs and windows open so that i can switch quickly between tasks. Sometime on tab will have an annoying add that will play while trying to watch video in another tab. Is there a way to mute individual tabs? If not you should do it. Google it, people want it! (if there is a way and the answer is on google, then I feel like a fool)

Thanks!

I have tried

(1) In a new tab, type or paste about:config in the address bar and press Enter. Click the button promising to be careful.

(2) In the search box above the list, type or paste newtab and pause while the list is filtered

(3) Double-click the browser.newtab.url preference and change from the default (about:newtab) to about:blank.

When i double click on the browser.newtab.url it gives me the option to edit the url address. If i delete it or if i replace it with about:blank it just goes back to the url it has set.

Status: user set, Type: string, Value: http://search.conduit.com/?ctid=CT3314958&octid=EB_ORIGINAL_CTID&SearchSource=69&CUI=&SSPV=EB_SSPV&Lay=1&UM=2&UP=SP31A63AA1-176A-4724-A794-2FC07C141F7E

The last time i had this issue i solved it by deleting and reinstalling firefox. I don't want to do that every time this happens. Ideally I would like to be able to type into the address bar automatically when I open a new tab, without clicking there. That was my previous setting and it seemed to change without reason. It did not come back when i reinstalled firefox.
