Multiaccount containers multiplying my tabs?

3 days ago I closed my main Firefox Windowby accident, while other windows were open. To restore, I just used the normal "recently closed windows" option and reopened my windows. Immediatly, all my tabs that were assigned to "Containers" were duplicated, and I lost the "Simple Tab Groups" order. For each tab on a container, a second was created without an assigned container. Fine, i thought, just closed 130 tabs that were unassigned, and moved them to the right Groups again. Next day, i open firefox, same thing. All tabs duplicated (but now on the proper groups). Closed 130 duplicated tabs and moved on. But I can't spend 5 minutes each day doing it! Testing more, I realized that every time I close and reopen Firefox, all the tabs assigned to a Container get a copy. If i close and reopen firefox 10 times, i will get 10 copies of all tabs, with no assigned containers to them, ending up with 1300 unnecessary tabs.

I just cant figure out how to fix it. Any advice?

On some websites (namely, twitter), middle clicking a post opens it in a new tab. However, whenever this happens, the new tab is always focused, is there a way to prevent this from happening?

This does not occur on websites such as Youtube.com, where middle clicking a video opens it in a new tab, but does not focus it. This is the preferred result.

Likewise, when middle clicking a bookmark, the newly created tab is also immediately focused. Is this preventable aswell?

Thank you for your time.

Hi, this is an idea: To be able to sort the order of tabs.

Often I'll be browsing for something one day, then move on to something else and continue browsing/researching the first thing again later or the next day. Suddenly I have lots of tabs on differrent subjects open and no way to organize the order of them, with using bookmarks/collections, which would be timeconsuming. Being able to reordering them would be really helpful, and also make the „swipe between tabs“ a lot more useful, without having to scroll back and forth through tabs within different subjects.

And especially on my tablet, where I have lots of tabs open when researching this would be great. :)

Hope you'll consider this.

I had a number of tabs open today (~40). Because Firefox started to malfunction, I had to restart Firefox. It happened to me before and I knew that I can restore my previous session so I safely closed the tabs.

When I restarted it, I opened a tab and then I tried to open the Application Menu, but accidentally closed the window. Now, when I've re-opened Firefox and attempted to restore the previous session only that last tab appeared.

Is it possible to recover the pre-previous session? I use Ubuntu 18.04. Where is this information located? and how can I retrieve it?

I have tried searching all self help topics. I have tried all available settings options. I have upgraded to the latest version 104.0.2. However, nothing seems to fix my problem which is that Firefox will not restore my previously open tabs when I reopen it. This problem started a few weeks ago. I have selected [Open previous windows and tabs] I have selected [Firefox will remember History]

Can you please help

I've been using multi-account containers for a long time. I've always used 'ctrl + shift + # of container' to open new tabs in a specific container. Recently, that feature has stopped working - but only for some containers? I can still open containers 1 and 2 using that shortcut, but my other containers just don't respond.

I've tried deleting the unresponsive containers and creating new ones, but that doesn't fix the problem. They work great otherwise - I can still open them with my mouse. Is there a fix for this?

Hi

Running Firefox 71.0 (64 bit)

Well seems Firefox has been messing this up again.

Anyone have the new work around solution to get my tabs back on the bottom again. They were fine this morning then shut down and went out to lunch and when I came back they were back on the top again after months of being where I wanted them below my bookmark bar.

Thoughts on this?

Thanks Dave

URL autocomplete shows mail.ru

Hi Firefox-Supporters,

I use Firefox for Android for long time. I use

  • Firefox for Android Version 104.1.0 (Build #2015898515)
  • Addons: uBlock Origin, Privacy Badger, NoScript, Decentraleyes
  • Autocomplete URLs (Settings - Search - Adress bar): active
  • Firefox for Android linked with a Firefox account and my Firefox Windows installation

Since about two weeks I sometimes get mail.ru as an Autocomplete URL suggestion when I am starting to type 'm', which should show mydealz.de as my by far the most visited website with letter m (visits: 10 or more / day). Sometimes the Autocomplete Feature still suggests mydealz.de. For months and years, it always suggested mydealz.de as expected, I have never seen any suggestion for mail.ru . Now I am wondering why sometimes mail.ru is suggested, as I did not make any (intentional) changes to my setup. Do you have any tips on finding the source for that suggestion? I was wondering if any app/addon or similar is opening the website in the background, as I did not open it intentionally.

Things I already checked/actions I made to find the potential source or at least fix the issue

  • Searched bookmarks (Android and Windows) for mail.ru - no bookmark set
  • Searched search engines (Android and Windows) for entry for mail.ru - no entry set
  • Searched history (Android and Windows) for visits of mail.ru - no entry
  • Delete browsing data (Android): works short-term, first suggestion after deletion is is monero.org with letter m, mail.ru showed after a few times typing 'm' in the adress bar.
  • Searched for newly installed apps on android phone - max. 1-2 new apps installed within the last weeks, would classify them as reliable.
  • Searched for newly installed apps and total scan for viruses on Windows Laptop - no new Apps installed, no virus found by MS Windows integrated scanner.

Would be glad if anybody got any tips on this.

Kind regards

For a few days now this thing with the tabs is driving me crazy. When I click on some link a new tab opens, then I click on another link another tab opens. Following some instructions I went to about:config where I was asked to look for neww, then change the default from 3 to 1. That solved the issue with opening multiple tabs, but now when in gmail and I click on a link it remains in the same page and I have to keep getting back to gmail to continue reading my emails.

That was not the behavior before. When I clicked on a link in my email I was taking to a new tab. Which was OK. But then lately every time I click on something it keeps opening new tabs. This is so annoying.

What can I do to go back to the settings I had a week or more ago.

This is FRUSTRATING!!!!

Thanks so much for your help on this matter.

Hello i've been having some problems on the latest software of yours i'm most of the time watching livestreams but from update v.100 of your software it became weird tab suspends after some in activity which is a problem for me

i found a solution through ABOUT:CONFIG and disabled these 3 for videos 1 - media.suspend-bkgnd-video.enabled 2 - media.resume-bkgnd-video-on-tabhover 3 - browser.tabs.unloadOnLowMemory

for videos and live streams it was good it didn't suspend but my problem now since update v.102 is that video plays but the CHAT stops and doesn't reload until i reopen firefox to the front of my programs

although it is runnning in the background and NOT MINIMIZED

even when the live stream has some lags and re-buffer it doesn't rebuffer or refresh the page to reconnect to the live stream until i force my firefox in front of my programs or games and again it was not minimized

if there is an option in the about:config to change this please tell me i'm already losing my mind as i missed one of my friends live stream because of that suspension

thank in advance

I use the Feedbro-Addon, which creates an own tab. Its url is: moz-extension://285d678c-ecb3-4003-923d-835fc9d8e0bc/reader.html

If I use it as a normal tab (instead of a pinned tab) ... it survives a Firefox restart. But if I use it as a pinned tab (which I want) ... it disappears after a Firefox restart.

I suppose it has to do with it being an addon-page instead of a "normal" page.

Is there a way to make it stay permanently pinned?

Firefox updated and now my tabs are above the address bar, I hate it. I have went through all the information I could and created a new chrome folder, downloaded the css and changed user preferences but it sets the tabs to the bottom of the screen not just below the address bar. I think I need a different set of code for the css but cant find a copy. Does anyone know what to do?

In the new version of the Developer Edition the options "close tabs to the right" and "close other tabs" are in a sub-menu named "Close Multiple Tabs" inside the context menu. Is there's a way to change this so that they will appear directly in the main context menu? I use "close tabs to the right" often and I find this very annoying.

I loved Firefox. Yesterday. Today, I very much dislike it. My nice, neat desktop is not overwhelmed with the tab, url, and bookmark bars now taking up fully one-third of my viewable screen. The pinned tab icons are enormous, and I've spent hours and hours trying all the proposed fixes but none of them work. This is like a cartoon of a browser with gigantic everything since I have to manually change the size of every single web page I visit. The pinned tab icons are so huge they are literally blurry. And, yes, it's as easy as Ctrl + 0, but in my line of work, I browse hundreds of webpages a day, and this is just not acceptable.

Just to be able to see a tiny segment of this page to type this question (i.e. how do I fix this or at least roll it back to the way it was yesterday?), I have to minimize the page to 67% (from the 150% it starts every page at) and the TOWERING tabs and bookmarks and enormous search bar are blocking out the top third of my entire 17" screen, so I can literally only see--again at 67% no 100%--this comment box. And only the part I am writing it, if I wanted to use bold or whatever options are up there, I would have to SCROLL up just to see them. This is just insane. And completely unworkable. I don't have hours to spend fixing every page, scrolling up and down to see a single image or comment box plus editing options. There must be a way to fix this or roll it back to my delightfully compact, unobtrusive tabs, search bar, and bookmarks and make it so every webpage I visit isn't so huge that I have to scroll not just up and down to see what I saw yesterday with ease but from left to right, too! Honestly. This is just dreadful.

Hello. I have had an issue with new tabs not opening in Firefox for about two days. My browser is updated to the latest version. The best way to describe the issue is like this: every time I boot up the browser, everything will be working fine. Then, within 4-5 minutes, tabs will stop opening. Every time I want to open a new webpage in a new or already existing tab, it will get eternally stuck on the loading stage. However, if I have something like a youtube playlist running in one of the tabs, it will switch from video to video with no problem. If I close the browser and try to open in again, it won't open (although I've already figured out that the latest issue can be solved with an administrator mode). Other browsers are working fine and don't have such issue.

I have tried reloading the browser, reloading the computer, cleaning cache/history/cookies, running the browser without any addons, running the debug mode, reinstalling the browser (twice), running the antivirus check, creating a new firefox profile. Nothing helps. Also, the problem persists in the debug mode - when I open it, the pages load for 3-5 minutes and then the tabs stop opening as well.

Please suggest what can I do to fix this issue.

everytime I open firefox, it automatically switches tabs like these which require authentication to log in. even though their password is saved, I am still required to click in sign-in button.

Its really annoying that these kind of tabs get opened automatically, and then I have to switch back. Is there a way to disable this autoswitch or better, let the authentication happen automatically since the password is already stored ?
