I am usually careful to keep the number of open tabs in my browser to an absolute minimum, to conserve memory. Is this not an issue with Firefox Preview? It seems to invite open tabs with Collections, as well as opening a new tab with every search. Should I not be concerned? Thanks for your guidance.

Are there any tricks to getting a Chrome URL page as the new tab?

The one and only website that I want as my new tab is a bit laggy and takes a while to load, probably because of CloudFlare.

And I'd like to have a huge page to see all of my bookmarks in, to make it easier to organize my bookmarks. Instead of using the bookmarks sidebar or the Library window.

So I thought why not combine the two things that I want? Make my new tab open up to the Chrome bookmarks page, and then if I want that laggy website it can be one of the top bookmarks listed. Or if I want to organize and see my other bookmarks instead, I can just ignore that top bookmark and focus on the other bookmarks.

Well my New Tab URL won't let me and it is a Firefox restriction so he couldn't add the feature even if he wanted to.

But surely there is a trick or workaround that might not involve extensions?

If so, please let me know.

I want chrome://browser/content/places/bookmarksSidebar.xhtml as my new tab page.

The extension was changing it to http://chrome://browser/content/places/bookmarksSidebar.xhtml which broke it.

I need to find all doctor's appointments for a specific doctor in 2018 and 2019. However, the Firefox search tool only allows me to search within one current calendar page. How can I do a search to find and locate a specific name within ALL my calendar pages across multiple years at one time, like I can do in my Microsoft Outlook calendar?

Hi, I thought I would check out firefox preview version, I realize it's a work in progress.. but I was just wondering if possibly sometime in the future if a dedicated home button might be added ? At least for me, that would make me like the browser even more, also I miss being able to utilize the lastpass password manager extension. Thanks, David

I'm use to have many Firefox windows open at the same time (usually 5-8), each one with dozen of tabs and it's difficult remember in which window a certain tab is open. So I think it would be useful hava a command to list all windows and tab open and be able to save this list in another program (text, spreadsheet, presentation or whatever. I searched in Firefox help, but find nothing: is my fault (so, please, suggest ho to do it) or a lack of feature? Many thanks

I have some sites that I visit specific pages on. For example, https://www.futilitycloset.com/category/technology/. When I start typing "fu", Firefox suggests first the base domain, futilitycloset.com, even though I never go to the main page. I've tried using shift+delete when the base domain is selected, but it's still there the next time I type "fu". Is this possible?
