If I assign a certain site to a container and close and reopen Firefox, the site still loads but is not assigned to the container anymore. It only does when I set a site to always open in a specific container. Is it supposed work like this, or can I change this somehow? It is fairly inconvinient if I have to reassign every site to the right container every time I start Firefox. Thanks in advance.

Hello. My Firefox (PC) has just updated to version 93.0. The problem now is that whenever I open a new tab, it is in dark mode, and the entire page is black. Only the address bar is white and visible. I have New Tab Overide, and each new tab should open the Google home page. So something is going on... I have never set dark mode as a preference for Firefox or Windows. Thanks to whoever can help me. Florio

Recently after the last update I lost all the tabs and also the possibility to recover them through "restore recently closed windows", as it wasn't clickable anymore all of a sudden. Moving files in the firefox profile folder isn't making any difference, perhaps I'm not doing it correctly. Anyway I only have files from the day in which I lost everything, so nothing from days earlier as it seems. Please help, the tabs vanished all by themselves, I didn't have a role in it, though I absolutely need to get them back

With recent versions of Firefox, I haven't found how to open all tabs from another synced computer. They use to be displayed in bookmarks or history lateral menu and I could use the right button to open all. If this option has been removed, I don't understand why going steps back.

Hiya I want to be warned when quitting multiple tabs BUT I do not want the session restored when opening again. This used to be possible but now in Settings if I untick Restore previous session even though Warn you when quitting the browser is ticked it does not give a warning when I quit Firefox. So this means if its unticked then if I accidently hit the close button I loose all the open tabs in firefox. If ticked I have to close all the tabs manually each time I close firefox to prevent thm opening when I start Firefox again. Im on Windows 10 Pro 21H1 with Firefox 93.0 any idea if I can change this behaviour in the advanced prefs? (about:config) thanks for any insights A

my windows 10 20h2 computer crashed 8/29/2021. Firefox was up to date. I built a new computer. I have access to the files off the old hard drive. I have 5 Firefox windows open with over 100 tabs of items I am researching How to I get all the tabs and windows to open in chrome on the new computer? I copied the entire profile directory of files into the new profile folder on the new pc and it still opened only the 1 standard home tab. Since Firefox did not shut down properly I expected the restore pages prompt to come up. Current version of Firefox is 93.0 (64-bit)

Hello. I've just recently refreshed Firefox. Before I did that, I had a home icon next to the round refresh icon on the upper left of the menu. Now I don't have it. And I can' click to the home icon to get a new home page of Firefox! And I am NOT a happy camper. Did you all forget to put that on there or what?

Yes, I am fully aware that I can click the plus sign to get a new page. But I love the home page icon. Is it coming back by any chance?

Hi, I'm trying to find a way to disable Firefox from automatically switching to new tabs when I click "open to a new tab" (I do a lot of research so I like to open a bunch of links in a row, and constantly having to switch back is annoying lol) but I've been browsing all the advice/tutorials (most seem to be from 2018) but I seem to be missing some of the options? Specifically the option for this preference in the tab settings. Have they been removed or just moved? or is there something more I need to do to find them?

I'm also looking for the option that lets you toggle firefox warning you about closing multiple tabs

(the image with the fb container add on is my setting, the other is from a support site/tutorial)

I have deleted all of firefox on my computer and profiles and cleared all of mozillla from my registy. With a clean install and no extensions, I still get a new tab every time I right click on a link. The context menu I wanted to use and select open link in new tab does appear, but the new tab is already opened. I have to click in an open area to remove the menu. I have switched to the brave browser for now, and it behaves exactly like firefox used to.

i want to play multiple(2) youtube videos at the same time in different tabs inside the same firefox window , what about:config commands do i need?

example listen to one tab in the background while watching another in the foreground tab, in the same firefox window.

second thing: is there a about:config or add-on that gives a mute/unmute for each individual tab located inside the tab header of each tab like a speaker button mute or unmute for individual tabs?

I remember being able to fix this before, but I can't find the config category for it now. Basically, no matter what is already open in other tabs, I always want Firefox to follow my directions and open whatever website I type in the URL in my current tab. I don't care if, say, Twitter is already open in an earlier tab. If I type in twitter.com, I want it to open in that tab, not switch to the previous tab. For example, there may be some sites that update regularly, but I want to hang onto the older version for a bit, so I leave it open. But then if I want to see the newer updated page, Firefox will not allow me to do it. What do I have to search for to switch to True or False to change this?

My power died recently, after which I opened Firefox, expecting to be greeted with the about:sessionrestore page but it was just a blank white page for some reason. The tab name still had "about:sessionrestore" but it was just blank, no window to select and restore. I backed up the sessionstore-backups folder and found the session I need to restore (recovery.jsonlz4). I dunno why, when I uncompressed that file, it saved that broken session as well. So the file looks like {Session with broken about:sessionrestore page -> Broken about:sessionrestore tab -> Session I want -> Tabs I want}

Is there any way to manually restore this nested session? I attached some images to help clarify. I don't really know how to work with json files, I'm using a freeware viewer to read the uncompressed session file. Thanks for any help.
