I have set a number of pinned tabs and leave a few other tabs always open. I set Firefox to restore the tabs when I close it and reopen it. Most of the time I have just one Firefox window open and this works fine. Occasionally, however, I need to open a second window usually with just one tab and if I forget and close the main Firefox window with the pinned tabs, etc before the single window one, Firefox reloads this single tab when I reopen it. Is there a way to avoid this behaviour?

Sometimes when loading a page, and the page is slow to respond, I will see a strange situation: The page is totally blank (the F12 tool does not display page content). The refresh button is gray (disabled), or sometimes although the refresh button enabled, the url textbox is "about:blank", which means I cannot actually reload the page I want to read. I have to re-navigate to the page through the link in the previous link. I'm not sure whether I got across. I hope the issue can be fixed.

I have used firefox for many years and really like it overall. One real problem is not being able to open new tabs to my home page (or what ever page I define to open). I have contributed to the project several times over the years but I am considering a replacement because of this issue. My hope is you might provide some solution without an addon, which always brings overhead. Please advise. Joe

I have Firefox set to restore all my tabs that were showing on my previous session. My question is are those tabs actually "open" and adding to the workload of the laptop every day when I power up again? When I do click on one it takes a while to actually open, but during that session if I go back to that tab it instantly is open. I have several hundred tabs saved this way at any time, but am assuming they are not open until the 1st time I open one each session. Thanks!

When I use the History window, I usually open a number of sites rather than just one. When I select "open in new tab", the focus jumps from the History window, where I'm working, to the new tab, which I would instead like opened in the background while I continue working in the History window.

Is there a setting to stop this change of focus from happening, and if so, what is it called and where is it located?

Hey guys,

I'm running my laptop on the latest version of Fedora, and using the latest version of Firefox although this issues has been happening with previous versions of Firefox too.

I'm not sure why but I'll be working and using Google sites fine sometimes (mostly gmail, google,google slides), but other times i will put the address in and nothing will happen, no timeout or anything as if I didn't do anything. I was even working with Google slides one time and I got signed out in the middle of my work and had to use a different browser to access slides again.

Anyone have any idea what my issues is?

Thanks.

In previous versions, I could open an image within the same tab, now you can only open it in a new tab and if it's on a malware site, tough luck. Also, for one Firefox process there used to be a single window in the taskbar, now it's one for each tab, and that's completely pointless.

The add-on extension "NewTabURL" (by "sogame") provided the option I want and used for a number of years. But it stopped working when Firefox was updated to version 16.0. When I click for a new tab, all I get is a completely blank tab. How can I automatically have the new tab always be a copy of the current active tab?

Can the extension "NewTabURL" be revised to work in version 16 and/or version 17? If not, how else can I get the new tab functionality that I desire? I can't seem to find any other extension that provides that functionality.

I have just updated to Firefox 17; I have used it back from version 3, and I feel it's time to say goodbye to Mozilla Firefox!

I have used a lot of other programs, and I don't think there is any other program that updates as frequently as Firefox - every couple of months there is a new version!

It's not bad thing itself, but very, very bad thing is that, each time I update Firefox, one third of my plugins and addons are not compatible with new version! That completely ruins my joy of surfing the internet; since updating from Firefox 14 to current Firefox 17, I have lost at least five addons that were very important for me; the last one, now, is Tab Mix Plus, it's not compatible with Firefox 17, and my Firefox now looks completely different from what I'm used to, I cannot use it!

This has become unbearable any longer: I cannot cope with constant updates of program and addons, and finding replacements for addons that became incompatible! I want to browse internet, and not always to maintain something within Firefox!

You offered me some half of dozen years of excellent experience of browsing the web, but you've become too user enemy for my liking; , so bye, bye, Firefox!

hi all

Having updated to Firefox 17.0 (from 16.0.2), for some reason I don't get warned when closing multiple tabs any more.

I've confirmed the relevant options are selected and am 100% certain this was working fine before updating Firefox today.

I've replicated the problem on my vista 32bit platform and on XP 32 bit too.

I also looked at the changelog for Firefox 17 but can't see any explanation for this change in behaviour, although I wonder whether this might have something to do with it "772319 No option to disable the "Close other tabs" prompt."

As I use Tab Mix Plus (add-on), I've also checked Firefox in safemode and have found the native tab warnings not working, so have concluded it's an issue with Firefox (rather than something to do with an extension).

I've checked "about:config" and "browser.tabs.warnOnClose" is set to true, as is "browser.tabs.warnOnCloseOtherTabs".

Any help would be appreciated.


Thanks,

Gary
