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?

I have been forced to create a new profile because, after an update to version 17.0, Firefox persisted in opening tabs from the previous session. Unfortunately another problem developed, namely, the constant appearance of a series of thumbnails in a new tab, a facility that I definitely do not want. After consulting Mozilla help and forums I tried all of the suggested solutions to no avail.

I eventually went about:config browser.newtabpage.enabled and rendered it false. The annoying thumbnails have disappeared!!!!!

While enquiring about the same product from different sites, say, I decide on one site before all others have completed downloading their info. However, to ensure I do not cancel/lose all the sites being investigated, I desire to stop them downloading while I examine the chosen site. Should the chosen site prove unacceptable, I can simply continue with the downloads from the other sites by clicking on "Reload" in each tab. Presently, this is not possible as I have to kill each tab which means I lose that option. Please help. Where am I missing it? (I have just chosen Mozilla and cancelled Google Chrome - I am sure you chaps can help). Kindest regards, Paul.

When I used to hit "Tab" it opened with a page full of my favorite "thumbnails". Somehow I have managed to delete those, which is fine--as long as I can restart building those thumbnails. The site that pulls up every time I hit "Tab" is http://www.searchnu.com/406?tag=newtab. I don't particularly like that search "engine?"--and would at least prefer to have Google pull up as a default (even if I can't have thumbnails). I have read thru your various "help" suggestions, but can't seem to improve this situation. I realize I hit something yesterday that removed "cache" ????---and that is the probable cause of my present situation. Can you help me restore my thumbnails---and/or make the "Tab+" at least default to Google? Thanks for your help- shnolan

Working on Firefox 19.0.2 for windows. I have imported the whole firefox profile from previous computer to a new one - after the import one thing got broken:

- when I open a new tab (about:newtab setting) it opens the new tab with the tiles of previously used websites fine but in order to put any address manually in the browser URL I need to click on the browser address bar first -> while on the another machine I see the default setting is that I can type in the Url bar right away after opening the new tab (without need to click the url bar extra)- I hope you you understand what I mean). Any way to restore this functionality?

Thanks in advance

Whenever my wifi goes down and the ATT notifier comes up, most of the icons on my tabs all change to the ATT blue ball -- I have emptied the cache, deleted history, etc., Even downloaded a couple of the Firefox (version 20.0.1) add-ons to try to resolve this issue to no avail. The Pinterest "pin it" tab on the favorites bar has NEVER shown, just an empty box - bit it had shown in previous versions of Firefox. I have had this problem in the past and found a successful fix; however, did not print it out and now can't find any solutions that have been successful. Drives me nutty!!! Any suggestions? Thanks in advance!!

Every time I open Firefox I get a box showing Window and then last site I visited with a "this is embarrassing" message and telling me to close tabs. There are no tabs open, so there are no tabs to close, as I just opened it and haven't done anything yet. I tried making sure to hit "home" after I'm done and shutting down from the beginning page, but still happens. Please tell me what I can do to make it open correctly. thank you.

I know how to set homepage correctly. I am an experienced user. My issue is when I start up Firefox 20.0.1 it always starts up two tabs. The first is the correct homepage. The second is a blank tab which it switches to. I only want the first tab which is the homepage. How do I stop the second tab from opening. The homepage is set only with one URL and is correct.

When a new firefox window is first opened, the text on the tab (e.g Mozilla Firefox Start Page) and the logo to the left of it becomes misaligned, almost like the text has been 'cut in half' vertically and not placed back together accurately. The fullscreen button and the 'open a new tab' button overlap too on the top right hand side.

To get into fullscreen mode, cmd+ctrl+F have to be pressed twice. Once to get the browser back to 'normal' the way the tabs should look, with the tab texts and logo normal, and second time gets it into full screen.

This happens everytime a new window is opened. Only happens once per window.

I have attached a link to an image here via photobucket so you can see what it looks like - http://i1282.photobucket.com/albums/a533/RGomes11/ScreenShot2013-05-14at215321_zps5b08b7ed.png
