Greetings, recently firefox 96.0.2 crashed running on windows 10. I had installed it long ago and I had tabs that were were active and I had installed 7 add-ons (extension). when I opened firefox after crash, I discovered 1 - no tabs existed, 2 - settings were as though it was a fresh install (I had to configure settings all over again) 3 - and no extensions I looked for restore under menu bar (the 3 stacked up lines) so far I have been unable to restore my old tabs and extension etc

I hope there is method to bring tabs back (most important). I tried to copy last month history with no success. Thank you for your help in advance. -Sed

When I have a handful of tabs open, they start scrolling off-screen, despite the fact that there is plenty of room on the tab bar. In fact, tabs never seem to populate the right 50% of the tab bar. I have found plenty of advice about how to set minimum and maximum sizes for the tabs themselves, but that is not my problem. I want to be able to see all of my tabs when there is plenty of room to show them. Any way to solve this?

Since probably FF94, i can't remove single page windows (like popup) by turning them into a tab anymore.

Before when a popup window appeared i moved it to the already opened main window to turn it into tab to not have ton of "recently closed windows". But since FF94, when i move a window, instead of disappear after become a tab, firefox only duplicate the webpage (i have the new tab and the identical webpage window). Until now the only way i have to remove the annoying windows is to kill firefox app with windows task manager and uncheck them in the tab recovery.

How i can have firefox able to really move windows into tab like before instead of copy them? Or have a way to permanently delete unwanted windows i don't use anymore in the "recently closed windows" list without killing the task.

Also moving tab from a firefox window to another work normally (no duplicate), the problem occurs only when FF windows has a single tab.

Hello, I have been using Firefox for years without problems, but recently this came about out of the blue: for every action typed into the window, be it a search string or URL, or even about:config, Firefox opens a new window.

I didn't tweak any configuration options, it's not any of the extensions (removed those) nor a theme (using default). Also, this https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1293906 was not useful.

This is an extremely annoying issue. Please help.

I accidentally clicked on the x in private mode. It didn't warn me before closing the many many open tabs in private mode!!!

What the heck?!

Firefox is updated to the latest version that was offered.

I'm using an ancient" machine but that shouldn't matter. If the box is checked to warn me first, then it always should, regardless what operating system or mode I'm in.

Very disappointed. Please fix or advise a solution I might try to prevent something similar in the future.

But I don't know what in the world I could have possibly done differently.

One checkbox being checked that claims to be to receive a warning before closing multiple tabs at once should be enough.

The images or symbols for different websites are not loading in tabs. I have reset several times. I have closed out of the widows and nothing. Is there a fix to have tab images populate normally? I attached a snip of 4 different websites all had images in 2021 and now they will not load.

In v.96.2.0, when a new tab is opened (either with the "+" or menu "new tab"), I do get a new tab - but in this version I no longer get the 3 vertical dots beside the address bar to allow me to, for instance, access my bookmarks or history. My choice is limited to the bookmarks already on the homepage. This was not the case with previous versions.

If, after I create the new tab, I do select one of the homepage bookmarks - say, Google search - the 3 vertical dots reappear and Incan get at my bookmarks ... but now I've got an unwanted extra tab open.

Weird.

See attached image. Things I want to be able to do, which were once easily accomplished with Tab Mix Plus. When I type in search bar, open in new tab. When I type in address bar, open in new tab. Have new tab open at far right (be the last tab) so it is easy to locate. Ability to protect pinned tabs to protect them from being accidentally closed. Currently, links still open in new tabs but not bookmarks and history. I'm in over my head. I just don't know how to get things to work the way they once did with Tab Mix Plus and don't know why this wonderful add-on isn't valued by Firefox. Thanks!

Please, please, for the love of Odin, can someone PLEASE help me... Asking here, is my absolute last resort. Usually, I work at finding solutions to my own problems when it comes to computer stuff like this, as it helps me to learn; but here, I'm pretty well stumped... I want to set up my Firefox Android browser to switch AUTOMATICALLY to new tabs that I have just opened from the Open link in a new tab option, found within the long-press context menu. Currently, when I select that option, the new tab opens in the background, and I get the standard New tab opened - Switch infobox/button... What I actually want however, is for Firefox to automatically switch to the newly opned tab, rather than me having to hit the Switch button before it times out, or press the tabs button on the top-right, and then select the new tab, from the tab view window.

There are few add-ons for Firefox Android in any case, and one that achieves my aim is just not there. There is also, rather irritatingly, no option to do this in Firefox-Android's settings menu... I've searched online for info that relates to any solution that can be achieved through about:config options, but I just kind find an option to do this... browser.tabs.loadInBackground seemed to be the one I needed, if set to False but my version of FF Android, doesn't have that option available.

I'm using the current version of Firefox nightly (because the standard FF Android, doesn't let you access about:config)

Can someone please help me?

velatura 7/20/21, 2:09 PM : Is there a way to bookmark, or save to reading list, all open tabs? This is possible on the Mac but does not seem to be an option on iOS. Please add this feature, if it isn't already implemented.

The request and two responses have been archived. Has this been resolved? If not, is it on your software roadmap? If so, how far out might we expect this much needed feature?

Thanks!

If you use userChrome.css to customise the tab toolbar, you might see the height of the tabs increase with Firefox 96.0.2. For me the fix was to add an entry to userChrome.css:

   #tabbrowser-tabs:not([secondarytext-unsupported]) .tab-label-container {
     height: initial !important;
   }

This counteracts a change in 96.0.2 which sets the height of that element to 2em.

About 10 days ago, Firefox on my iPhone 7plus changed the way it handles my tabs. Now, every time I click off a tab or close a tab to go to the next one, it instead takes me to the top of my tabs, and so I am spending all my time scrolling back down my tabs to get to the one I’m using. Also, if I’m in a tab, and I click on a link to open in a new tab, instead of it being put into my tab list right after that tab, it is put at the very end of the tab list, so that once again I am scrolling all the time. Why did they change such a good browser for something so non-intuitive, or is this a problem that can be fixed?
