With the new "tab line", all the tab-line looks the same across multiple Firefox windows: they have the same background color, and the only difference is that those "inactive windows" shall have tab-names in a slightly fainted color.

Attached is a screenshot with a "custom theme", as configured here: https://color.firefox.com/?theme=XQAAAAIWAQAAAAAAAABBKYhm849SCia2CaaEGccwS-xMDPsqufDOWr6IhCp9RnjnsdP9GNu2SjSQBIXJelHlUb_p3iV0Tk_tp5WixtO7xQnun54TM0zzonAd6w0T64epRIX-MPh_WdfDW_w-yhADmUgnb68gPKrs8qenrbJlNLa8ExfeSsKaaHfQ-9sW8GyKyObiSlDh9ijHuiE5lJEM3vAAjTa46EQ7ytUeVh0LL3__uhviAA

Please advise if I am missing something super simple to configure: basically, I'd like to apply a different background color when the Firefox window is inactive. (The Solarized dark theme does part of the job, by leaving an noticeable boarder when the Firefox window is not maximized.)

It also helps if I can completely disable this new "theme" feature and restore to the the old way that these "tab-lines" are rendered.

Thanks a lot!

I use the session restore option, but when I open a new firefox window (by detaching a tab) and forget to close last the window with most tabs, the restored session is the single tab that I detached. This has happened a couple of times, but I can't remember exactly how to solve it, just that there was an action that would 'pop out' the previous session, like opening a new window and closing the last tab there. any tips?

This has been happening for the last several Firefox updates, and it's an incredibly frustrating issue that makes me not want to ever exit the browser or update it. I'm not sure when or why exactly it started happening, but I believe it was after an update at least 3+ months ago.

For some reason, when the browser opens from having been closed due to restart or update etc, and it restores my prior browsing session - it only ever restores 3 pinned tab as pinned. For some reason, it's always specifically just 3 tabs, and it's usually whatever the first 3 pinned tabs were. I always have at least 10 pinned tabs open due to the nature of my job. The tabs that are no longer pinned are restored in what looks like a random order, mixed in with my other tabs. Also, other tabs that weren't pinned, are restored out of order. This makes it difficult to find a tab and get it back to the order it should be in.

I always just have a single window open. There are many tabs open as I work with a lot of cloud software at the same time.

i have tried starting a whole new session from scratch, even uninstalling and reinstalling the browser. Doesn't seem to help, the issue returns on every launch. This looks like a bug to me, but I didn't find anything on it.

I recently updated to Firefox 89.0. I like the new look and feel, but ever since updating, I no longer see the little red notification emblem on the tab in Firefox when I have unread messages.

I've attached an image showing the tab in Firefox 89.0 (Left side) and the same Discord session in Firefox 88.0.1 (Right side). In Firefox 88.0.1, the notification emblem shows on the tab, but in FF 89.0, it doesn't.

Does anyone know if this is this a bug or some kind of option that I can change in FF 89.0?

Thanks for any help or advice anyone has to offer!

The previous version of firefox would show which tab was making noise with a little megaphone symbol. But the June 2021 update changed that function so the symbol only appears when you hover the pointer over the tab. Not very convenient or useful. I was wondering if there was a setting or add on that would restore the previous noisy tab identification function.

Please fix this issue and let us only use the private mode at a time and don't allow the normal mode window to open along with it.

Thanking you in anticipation!

I've followed the advice in all the threads I can find from the last three years about how to handle a situation where you cannot use "restore previous session" in history.

As of approximately 7am this morning my computer was fine, I closed the lid (to let it sleep) while I was at work etc, but found that my laptop had restarted when I went to wake it up tonight around 8pm. It appears as though at 7:47 there was a crash of some sort.

It doesn't look like a "sessionstore.jsonlz4 " was created, and when I try to see previous versions of literally anything in "(c:) > users > [my info] > app data > roaming > Mozilla > Firefox > Profiles" ALL are without one despite the folder properties showing a "created" date that fits with when I created a firefox account two -ish years ago.

Every folder in the second profile (which shows that it was created today) is empty.

Has anyone else heard of an update overwriting all history like this? I had a, frankly, problematic number of tabs open (across three windows, each with a different general theme, ie general stuff in window a, weird hobby in window b, and A Lot of tabs for a personal project that I mostly didn't have bookmarked in window C), and have never had anything remotely like this happen before.

Is this a hopeless cause? What can I do to prevent this from happening again?????

Any advice would be appreciated. The tabs lost in my "personal project research" window represent about six months of weekends worth of effort and I'm so upset about it that I can barely articulate how stupid I feel for having passively allowed this to happen because I was tired last night when I got home from work and ignored the "update" prompt in the top right corner (normally I make sure to save my session and update, but I thought "eh, I'll do it tomorrow when I get home from work").

On Androis, Firefox Daylight gives a popup message when closing a tab in the list of tabs. If the list of tabs is longer than the screen, it blocks the bottom most tab's close icon. Therfore closing two (or more) tabs in rapid succession is not possible.

This is something I often do, when I noticed I left open a lot of tabs that I don't need anymore I always have to wait for the popup disappears to close the bottom most tab.


The popup could be smaller or block the tab from moving behind it.

There is a design flaw in a recent update of firefox for android. When I am trying to close tabs quickly from the bottom, the "tab closed, undo" button is now positioned directly over the X mark on the next tab to close the next one and I have to wait until it goes away to close the next tab. This is extremely frustrating and I am hoping this is fixed soon. It is taking 3 times as long to close my tabs in the order I would like to. The button just needs to be very slightly thinner and the X mark for the next tab will not be blocked anymore.

I ALSO WANT TO ADD THAT I STILL CANNOT REORDER MY TABS ON ANDROID AND IT IS DRIVING ME INSANE. PLEASE FIX!!!!

As the title suggests, sometimes when I launch a site marked for a container, it will open a new tab and show the URL but not load the page. Refreshing doesn't fix it, and I have to copy/paste the URL into a new container tab. This only happens when opening from a shortcut, not from history search or typing the URL. It seems to be happening across all containers I have. I'm using Windows 10 and the latest Firefox. Any help appreciated!
