So Amazon audible popped up a firefox session with a talking book after I shutdown. So firefox saved this session to restore next time.

I shut down firefox while I:

1. I understand the file sessionstore.jsonlz4 in session store is a backup of the old tabs. So I saved it

2. I then copied it to the sessionstore folder under the profile. (I only have one folder under the profile folder so it must be the correct target). As a precaution, I also copied the file and renamed it previous.jsonlz4 and recovery.jsonlz4

But I cant get firefox to load it. Firefox stubbornly loads the tabs i just used and then creates new files called previous.jsonlz4 and recovery.jsonlz4 which overwrites my backed up files

So my question is how do I make firefox use the backup file I saved?

TIA/gary

The default browser behavior when I click on a link on a page is to open a pop up window in the current tab. In these cases I'm clicking a link on the pg to my social media account in order to publish a new post linking to my own content.

The new unwanted behavior on clicking the link is for it to open my social media account in a new tab. I want clicking that link to open a pop up of my social media account in the current tab. Is there any about:config setting controlling this, which I can change?

Firefox keeps pinning ads for random pages that I have never visited. It happens inconsistently, but sometimes when I open Firefox there will be a random ad page pinned. Even if I unpin it, and reopen Firefox the same ad page will be pinned again. I have tried looking it up in settings but could find anything, that make it pop up.

Readability of Tabs in Version 89

Updated to version 89 and am not pleased with the visual/graphic interface changes. The tabs are very difficult to read. The new graphic layout fails to clearly identify each tab as a distinct entity or thing to be selected. The text just looks like a long string of text and in some instances of long names on a tab the text just fades away to nothingness.

Please make each tab a "distinct thing by creating a different colored edge on three (3) sides of the tab. Or perhaps have 3 levels of lightening/darkening the table to differentiate it from the background on which it is displayed.

Does the development team have a graphic designer and/or have the changes reviewed by a group of graphic designers?

Please change this please or put the user in charge of how they want it displayed.

is it possible to configure all new tabs in v89 to be the same as my homepage, which in my case is Google.com? I don't like the Firefox home because when you start to enter a search, you get thus list of visited websites etc ... which is very annoying and gets in the way of my work (not all search methodologies are the same).

Patrick thank you

So the new tab bar has been dissolved together into a mush of text, there is no definition between the tabs and the background.

My eyesight isn't great and the new update has made Firefox very difficult to use. Please bring back the tab defining features and the contrast between the tabs and the background. 'Modern' doesn't always mean better!

It would also be nice if you would respect the general Windows settings that make these components visible. Discontinuity between different apps makes it very difficult to navigate the browser.

All of a suddenly my webpages are about 2" square. I can force them to zoom, or stretch them but I'd really like to skip these steps and have things back the way they were before the latest update. I've tried several suggestions to no avail. Once fully opened, the rest all open fine. Anyone? TIA Alexa

Subject says it all. "How to revert to 'browser.tabs.ontop=false' functionality in Firefox 89.x?" I hate the Proton layout where tabs are now positioned at the top. I want to revert to what I had before — via an add-on, I think — because the new style creates visual dissonance. I HATE the new style. I want a layout that does not do my head in. I do not care that someone(s) in the development team thinks tabs.ontop is better; it is not better for me.

I recently switched from a Huawei P20 to a Samsung Galaxy S21 Ultra. Under tabs settings I have grid selected on both phones. The Huawei phone shows the tabs 1 pane wide and 2 high and you scroll up and down to view them all. As such, the tabs are very easy to read. The Samsung shows the tabs 2 panes wide and 4 high. The panes are small, difficult to read and show far too much info to be comfortable (at least for me). Is there any way to set the size of the grid layout or is this a preferred layout for Huawei. I recently gave up on Google Chrome because they disabled the "tile" feature for their tabs.
