When I click on a link, Firefox opens the link in a new window, even though I have "Open links in tabs instead of new windows" checked in Options. I want links to open in a new tab in the same window. I'm updated to the most current version of Firefox, too. How can I fix it?

Thanks, Leah

I have 945 tabs that show up in what I'll call the "Bookmark Took Bar" just below the home page tool bar. Most are duplicates. I want to clear these and only have a few important tabs (bookmarks?) in the bookmark tool bar. Can you help me.

Are books marks the same as tabs. How can I prevent this from happening again?

When I paste an URL with a port number in the address field of a new tab and press return, then the port number gets removed.

Example: I paste "http://localhost:5707/typo3" and press return Firefox then tries to connect to "https://localhost/typo3/", which is SSL and has no port number.

How can I disable that behavior?

This happens with Firefox 84

I have been using Firefox for many year. I have uninstalled and reinstalled Firefox recently.

I have a PC with Windows 10.

I typically have 5-6 browser windows opens (going back for year). 3 Ancestry.com search windows, one LDS Search window, and Yahoo e-mail window and sometimes fantasy sports window. I spend most of my online time doing genealogy research at ancestry.com.

Until a few months ago when I open a new Ancestry.com page in a tab, the page opened in the same tab. This is what I have been used to and expect. Within the last few month when I open a new ancestry.com page in a tab it opens in a new tab. Eventually I have 10-15 tabs opens which is don't like.

In "option" in the category "tabs" I have the 1st 2 boxes checked, the 2nd box being "Open links in tabs instead of new windows".

Is there something I can co to stop all these new tabs from opening when I am opening new ancestry.com pages in an ancestry.com tab?

Just when I think I have it figured out, I don't. When I open Firefox, I want outlook.live.com to be the first thing I see in the first tab and I want it to always stay that way. I'm constantly having to change my Permanent Tabs and it's a waste of my time. And when I select to open a tab, half the time I never get a chance to open a different tab before the website opens and then everything is screwed up again. I have tried to open the tab first, but that doesn't seem to work.

At first I thought I needed to open a tab for Firefox Home Page to sign in, but I'm ALWAYS signed in. In the menu options, I see "exit" but nothing to log out. Do I presume that I am always logged in to Firefox?

Do I need a separate tab for Grammarly? I have the extension in my add-ons and after I choose it and sign in I don't know what to do with this add-on. The only options I see are to keep a tab open for this, but I usually close it after logging in. Is there something else I need to do? I cannot minimize this page.

I have the newest version of Firefox on my OnePlus 6. Since the browser updated itself, every action short of clicking a 'next' link opens a new tab. Why? What is the rationale behind this? Why doesn't clicking the 'back' button close the newly opened tab? Is there a security or safety reason for this change? And most importantly HOW DO I TURN THIS OFF? Having a function that automatically closes tabs after a day/week/month/whatever doesn't resolve the issue, it's a tiny band-aid over a gaping wound. 5 minutes of browsing through bookmarks should NOT result in 12 open tabs that need to be closed.

Issues when opening tabs from collections

More of a piece of feedback than a question: when opening tabs from a collection (using firefox Beta), it seems that the browser treats this as restoring a previously closed tab rather than opening a new tab and navigating to a site/bookmark. This ... is problematic. And causes some weird behaviour. - Oftentimes (and seemingly at random, can't tell whether this is due to updates or if it just changes at will) tapping a site in a collection causes it to be opened in a background tab, instead going to and refreshing whichever open tab was last displayed before opening the new tab. This makes the new (collection) tab appear at the top of the tab list rather than the bottom, and is overall extremely annoying. - Sites added to a collection seem to remember (some?) previous navigation history, meaning that visiting that site and then navigating "back" to get to the home screen instead navigates to whatever was visited previous to saving the site to the collection. This is entirely consistent for the collection entries where it happens. This is not how an equivalent of a bookmark should work. - Often when opening a site from a collection, it seems that what is opened is a cached version from the previous rather than actually refreshing the site from the web. I previously had this issue for a very long period, before it finally went away, but has recently returned again. Checking a news site or forum and having to remember to refresh it manually after opening is, again, extremely annoying.

Magically? As in Evil, Stupid Magic. Turn off computer. Turn back on 2 hours later: New Tabs page has Completely Reset. All Saved Tabs are gone? Really. Who thought this was a good idea? Let's fuck with the users and screw their saved bookmarks. Nice. Twice, over the past 2 months. And, my other extensions should In No Fucking Way be the Issue. C'mon developers, quit trying to make Firefox 'prettier'..! Just make it work consistently.

Hey guys, in my website history I found a link for a website that I didnt visit and also it happened while I was away. No one has access to my laptop.

Is it possible thats a mistake? Or that while my laptop was in sleep mode he somehow went there? But I didnt have internet connection then.

It was microsoft support website https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/office/examples-of-office-product-keys-7d48285b-20e8-4b9b-91ad-216e34163bad?wt.mc_id=enterpk2016&ui=en-us&rs=en-us&ad=us

Any ideas what it could have been?
