Firefox will not create new tabs

I was using the tree style tabs add-on. Firefox popped up a message about a problem with that add-on, which I unfortunately clicked on, and all my tabs vanished. Now not only do I not have my tree-style tabs, Firefox will not create new tabs at all, and "restore session," or "restore all tabs" does nothing. FWIW, in safe mode, it will still give me standard abs at the top.

The Add-ons page offers me "find alternative add-ons," but will not download the alternative it offered me.

I've been a loyal Firefox user since the very first iteration of Firefox, but this has got me ready to bail and find another browser. Really pissed that it gave me no option to read up on what the problem was before killing all my tabs and refusing to allow me to even make new ones in the standard top tab mode without safe mode. I understand there being a problem with an add-on, but this sort of behavior is beyond the pale.

Anyone encountered this problem? Any solutions beyond changing browsers?

Please continue here: [/questions/1331097]
I just upgraded to Firefox 87.0 (64-bit) for Windows 7. After the upgrade the wheel click to open a link in a new tab isn't working. In fact, doing a wheel click does absolutely nothing now. I have relied HEAVILY on using wheel clicks to open links in new tabs. In fact, depending on what I am doing I am more likely to open a link in a new tab than to just follow it, as it is easier to close a tab then hit a back button 4, 10, or 20 times to get back to where I started.

I have verified the following options in about:config; browser.tabs.opentabfor.middleclick=true middlemouse.contentLoadURL=false middlemouse.paste=false middlemouse.scrollbarPosition=false

When searching to see if others were having this problem I noticed a user from 3 years ago had this problem in the Linux version, and that they had listed an option for middlemouse.openNewWindow=true. This option is now missing from about:config. I have no idea if it was in the previous version of Firefox or not, or if it being missing is the source of my problem or not. I have restarted Firefox itself a couple of times, as well as rebooting my computer, the problem is still there.

At this point I am already highly tempted to attempt to return to the previous version of Firefox just to get this one feature back, simply because of how regularly I rely upon it. The only reasons why I'm not at present is to ask for help fixing this problem and that I probably won't have the time around work to fight with it for several days.

I want to have my posts on Voy Forums to be about 4 to 5 inches wide. Now when I type a post, it fills the whole page and it's hard for people to follow. I need to set the default margin for posts. How can I do that without having to use the "Enter Key"?

FF 78.0.1 Can't get tabs on bottom to work - despite fact that .css file is working on another computer

Hi all, I just got a new laptop and am trying to get FF the way I like it. This new laptop is W10, and the FF version is 78.0.1.

My old laptop (W7) also has FF 78.0.1.

I created a Chrome folder and a userChrome.css file in my new computer. I copied and pasted the "tabs on bottom" code I have been using on my W7 computer into the new file on my new computer and it is not working.

I have looked all over the web for several hours now and have tried several different versions of the code, tried turning the "legacy toolkit" line (in about:config) on and off and nothing has worked. I also can't find any information on why this code would work in W7 but not W10.

Does anyone have any thoughts?

BidenFox for President - Free Tabs for Everyone!

Now that you've elected BidenFox Android as your browser you will receive free tabs every day, all day. You get free tabs if you open a Bookmark and free tabs if you open Top Sites. And because you've upgraded without questioning our policies, we'll give you free tabs whenever you open anything in any Collection.

That's right, we've given you Collections! We want you to stop using those Trumpmarks, the trusted and private URL's you rely on throughout your day. We didn't spend anytime on making Trumpmarks more useful, like the ability to rearrange them in any order, something you've asked for year after year. So forget Trumpmarks and use Top Sites or Collections because you can never get enough free tabs.

And a bonus: If you have shortcuts on your phones Home Page, every one will open a new tab. More importantly, we now govern the behavior so it exits to Firefox, not back to your phones Home Page like past versions.

Thank you for electing BidenFox for Android as your browser. Only 4 more years until the next one.

I give up. I simply am not finding what I need to find. Windows 10 instructions don't seem to help either (Yes, I am running Win10). If I have to do a screenshot, instead of verbal description, I'll just forget my curiosity. Thanks anyway.
