I used to get a display in the middle of a "New Page" with Firefox - recent revisions have removed that and I only get a Google search bar at top of new page. Help is appreciated. What I am looking for is displayed in images from my Chrome browser - similar, but not like the way Firefox displayed it.

Just now, as I was in the middle of something, Firefox popped up a usage tip about tabs. I find this disruptive. Is there a way to turn these off? If I want to know how to do something, I'll look in the help.

It's fine when you create a new feature to display a tab when I first launch after an upgrade, or to have the Help menu show a Latest Features item, but please don't interrupt my work with pop-ups.

For the moment, I don't see anything in Preferences about this. Is there an about:config setting I can add to suppress this feature?

I remember using Firefox before and when I clicked a regular link , it would open it in the current tab, but when I used my MMB, it would open a new tab. I can get either one to work individually, but not at the same time. Is there a way to have both active at the same time?

When trying to print in Firefox all I get in the print preview window is a spinning wheel. It is only doing this with Firefox. Printing works fine with Edge and Google Chrome. It just started doing this a couple of days ago. Restarting has no effect. Any ideas?

With recent releases, I've started noticing that Firefox UI freezes seemingly randomly. When it does, the UI doesn't respond to interactions, and there's no visible change in the UI, either - for example, if I switch to a different tab after the UI froze, there's no visual sign of switch happening. However, if I were to alt-tab to another window, then then UI looks as if it had responded behind the scenes. I.e., the tab switch were somehow kept pending until at the point of alt-tab.

I've had this happened on two different machines, both running the latest version (106.0.1), but this was observed even with 105, I think.

FWIW, I'm on Linux; I've tried both with and without hardware acceleration. Unfortunately, I don't have consistent/sure reproducer; not have I observed any particular pattern of interaction that'd lead to this.

I was going to file a bug, but thought posting here before I do that.

Firefox just stropped working for me. Would be unable to load any pages after 5-10 minutes until I restarted the browser. No other troubleshooting worked so I had to refresh firefox and now my firefox private network add on is gone. All my other add ons are still there but I can't re-download private network without paying a subscription, even though I have had it installed for years. How do I access that add on? I don't understand why I would need to pay for something I already had and only lost becasue firefox malfunctioned.
