locking as a dupe of - https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1299540

Had a browser crash while changing watching a sports program online. Using FF v79 on W7. I want to change the tabs to a more rounded look. I had a theme installed that did this, a light weight theme. Since the crash I can no longer find the theme to install. The crash folder did nothing to restore these rounded tabs.

As usual, the latest Windows 10 update has caused a few annoying issues. One is that whenever I share something to Facebook from an external site like a newspaper, after the share popup has disappeared I am left with a completely empty tab. Is there any way of stopping this happening? I'm not an expert and don't feel confident about messing with codes, so a simple fix would be appreciated. I've added the troubleshooting information as offered on this page, but have no idea whether this would be helpful!

Hi all,

I'm having an issue that's only just started happening in the last couple of weeks I'd say where I'm on YouTube and I open a few videos in new tabs to watch and they just start playing on their own which is really annoying. I've got the autoplay function set to block both audio and video. It doesn't happen with every single video but it happens with most.

And sometimes I find that I go into the tab, click the play button and it plays the last second of the video and shows the end card. Not too much trouble but a bit baffling. I was wondering if it was maybe still playing in the background but not loudly announcing itself this time.

Another issue (though I don't know if it is an issue) is that I like to have Twitch going in the background if I'm waiting for a streamer to start streaming so I can hear once they do but the page doesn't actually reload unless I go back to it and I find I've missed the first 20min. I don't get why some pages load and keep keep going in the background while others don't. Any way to fix this?

Cheers!

Firefox on my android tablet was just upgraded, but now I cannot see all of my open web pages next to each other on top of the screen anymore! Now I first have to press the number at the right and then I see all the tiles on the left, but it was much quicker to see all of the open web pages at the same time at the top, so I could switch much quicker. Is there a way to get the old layout back? Thank you!!!

Hallo, mein firefox für android ( samsung note 10+) hat sich automatisch aktualisiert. Ich hatte vor dem update eine add on instaliert. die addon ermöglichte das abspielen von z.b youtube videos im sperbildschirm. Das ist nach dem update nicht mehr möglich. Finde auch kein addon.. ich finde es sehr schade, da ich sehr oft musik im internet höre und dabei mein gerät im hosensack trage. Was ohne sperrbildschirm nicht möglich ist. Wäre schön wen sie mir weiterhelfen köntet.

Mfg

Why can I not change my tab view to a different set up? With the new update I can no longer change my tabs view from LIST to Group (it was 2 columns wide that looked like a mini window of what each tab was). I do not like the LIST style (it's essentially tabs that are listed as rows and I have to scroll up and down to see) that it is now set to on my Galaxy Device. I switched to Mozilla over a decade ago due to your browser allowing me to control nearly every aspect of my browser setup. If this is not something that can be given the option to change, I will probably find a new browser for my android device.

Hi there

Since the new version of Firefox on Android launched, everytime I select a new Bookmark it opens a new tab.

If possible, I'd like to change it so opening a new Bookmark simply opens it in the last tab I was using.

Is there a way of doing this

With the previous Firefox on Android, I could go into open apps on my phone, swipe to close Firefox, and it would close the app and all the tabs I had open would close as well. I've recently updated to the new Firefox on Android and this no longer works. Doing this will close the app but not the open tabs.

You can set it up so that if you press 'quit' within the app, this will close all the open tabs and the app. However, it only looks like it closes the app and if you go into open apps on your phone, you'll see Firefox as still being open.

So rather than being able to close the app and all open tabs in one quick action, I now have to go into the menu in the app, press quit, then check open apps and swipe to close Firefox. Please sort this out and make it as simple and easy as it was before.
