Hello!

when I turned off my computer, I had a number of important tabs open. Usually when I turn off my computer and turn it back on, I just "restore" my previous session and my tabs are there. However, Firefox upgraded automatically and gave me no option to save my tabs or restore them. Now all I am seeing is new tab and new window as options. :( I need my previous sessions because I don't remember all the urls out of my head. Please help.

Kind regards,

-Rusty

Hi, I use a PC under W7.

with FF88, the zone of the activated/unused tabs was above the screen, below the listed tabs bar (like in the snapshot).

With FF89, this zone is now empty (background in blue in the snapshot) and only the active tab appears below the window (on the right down in the snapshot for the current tab).

It makes FF simply unusable ! Need your help to come back to a normal situation : all tabs in the blue bar where they were.

thanks a lot for your help. Regards, Philippe

I have several hundred tabs, tick them all and want to bookmark them, but that never works. I'm not sure what "tick them all" refers to.

There's no built-in way to bookmark all open tabs across all windows at once, but Firefox does have a feature to bookmark all of the tabs in the current window to a new folder. The shortcut is Ctrl+Shift+D, or you can find it on

classic Bookmarks menu on the optional menu bar optional Bookmarks menu button for the main toolbar Does that feature work? If not, is there any error message?

Are you still able to add one bookmarks manually, for example by clicking the star icon in the address bar? If that doesn't work, it can indicate a database problem (more details if needed).

I will also add that the "Settings" menu does not open! Settings, formerly called Options, should open an internal page in a new tab. If you type or paste the address about:preferences into the address bar and press Enter, can Firefox show the page?


==Ctrl+Shift+D = NOT WORK / NOR REACTION / NO MESSAGE ERROR /NOTHING HAPPEN This marks 1000 Tabs, but nothing else can be done, no reaction, no error, no message, I don't know how to write or add 1000 tabs to the bookmarks, I asked a many developers, for 3 years and no one can help, I tried 100 different ways and there's nothing I can do, do I really need to lose my data? "Reset firefox completely" = data loss Even moving the profile and trying to restore it always ends with the same problem, still nothing works, how to save all 1000 tabs to a text file, even the best of the best ways fails, because after saving it is 0KB, no data !!!

Hello, I have been using Firefox for years without problems, but recently this came about out of the blue: for every action typed into the window, be it a search string or URL, or even about:config, Firefox opens a new window.

I didn't tweak any configuration options, it's not any of the extensions (removed those) nor a theme (using default). Also, this https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1293906 was not useful.

This is an extremely annoying issue. Please help.

Hello, I had just recieved the new redesign of Firefox on my system and so far I am loving every bit of it.

However, I am a person that frequently opens many, MANY tabs and likes to keep them organized by draging them around on the tab bar. Since the new redesign I can no longer move my tabs around or open new windows by detaching tabs. Is this on purpose and supposed to have been a "feature" with the redesign? I have tried reinstalling firefox as well without success in fixing the issue.

Hi! Years before I got accustomed to use the very useful function of "properties" of the tabs. Within its' windows I was able to annotate handy, personal informations, such as IDs, passwords and also some short summaries. Then, after recent updates - (my current version is 89.0.2 - 64 bits) - surprisingly this function is no more available! My question is : why was this funtion taken away ? And also : how is that possible to annotate tabs henceforth ? Thanks for your attention.

I don't know if its an issue with the theme or Firefox itself (I think it's Firefox because it already happened on previous versions), but when I open certain number of tabs, or a tab with certain characteristics that I don't know, the whole row of tabs increases its height. And it annoys me. Thanks beforehand!
