Hey I think version 69 still had the 'Recently closed tabs' view, but I cant find it on version 81. I already searched this site and also googled it.

I closed a tab accidentaly that i opened some time ago. So searching through my history won't do it since it was an article of a site where i opened and read like 20 articles, I also cant remember the name of it.

I guess it was removed in favour of a more simplistic UI? If so I would really like the devs to consider adding that back in, I know that there is an option for reopening the tab right after closing it, but it is possible to miss it or your device just bugging/slowing down on you when you do this. This happened a few times to me.

Thanks in advance!

Working at a project, had approx 20 to 30 tabs open for that and left it over night to continue today. The comp seems made a general update and restarting today seems Mozilla had upgraded too and appears with a specific mask (something new for me) as it wants by all means to enter a profile name finally to start working, i did, but having badly to recognize that all searched and open tabs are closed and deleted even from Chronik so that a week work just vanish .... I am absolutely angry about that .... at least update could offer and warning about to close and safe tabs as the update is going to delete them all.... aaaaarghhhhh

I'm having a weird problem with Firefox for a long time now.

I'm using the latest version, for windows, x64bits - 81.0.2

Sometimes, I press Ctrl+T to open a new TAB and I type an address or paste an address and it just won't load the page... It stays loading, loading and it does nothing.. BUT If I open another tab (Ctrl+T or in the plus sign) and paste or type and address, everything works... This can happen again on the same window or in another window... I just don't know what is happening... I haven't switch to another browser because I love Firefox to much, but I'm getting a bit tired of this problem...

Any hints on why this is happening ?

How to set Firefox to open new tabs on the left, not on the right of the tab list?

Hyperlink is ok, it opens on the right of the current tab, but not the Ctrl+T or when opening link from the pinned tab. Tab is placed to the far right. Current setup is not logical. If pinned tabs (important ones which you visit often) are on the beginning, and the tabs you are actively working on are on the opposite end of the tab bar. You want to open new tabs near the pinned ones.

When Firefox has been running for some time it becomes very unresponsive. This is a very well known and very longstanding problem. The only solution is to simply restart Firefox. Unfortunately, if one has multiple tabs open, restarting Firefox will not reload those opened tabs. This is a gigantic PITA as this user usually has more than ten tabs open, many with various and sundry search results. Which I then have to laboriously open new tabs for and re-enter all the different search terms.

Is there any way to restart Firefox WITH those tabs ?!?!??!?!

After more than ten very satisfactory years of Firefox use do I really have to switch to another browser that doesn't require constant restarts and pray that I can find equivalent privacy and ad-blocking extensions ?

I had like over 100 tabs lol but I had a Windows Update. My laptop froze while I had Firefox open. After the laptop restarted, I realized the new patches didn't get applied before Windows started up again, so after Windows started back up, (I did not open Firefox at all during this cycle) I went to Windows Update and hit Restart to apply the updates. After the updates got patched in and Windows restarted, I went to open Firefox and it just opens the home page.

I do have Restore Previous Session upon Startup checkmarked.

Tried restoring from the 3 line Menu button but the Restore option is not there.

Did try under History in the Menu bar but my Recently Closed Windows and Recently Closed Tabs are greyed out.

Tried the Library icon's Recently Closed Windows and Recently Closed Tabs within History and they both show up as (Empty)

Went to my Profile's folder into the sessionstore-backups folder and there's only 2 small 44kb files there both that were created when I started Firefox up: recovery.baklz4 and recovery.jsonlz4 ... the sessionstore-backups folder itself was also created when I started up Firefox after my Windows Update.

I read thru stuff like https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1204253 I do not have any files that have previous.jsonlz4 or upgrade.jsonlz4 like mentioned in my sessionstore-backups folder... not sure if they may be somewhere else like in 1 of the Temp folders somewhere else in Windows folder.

If I uninstall last Windows Updates, would it revert my Firefox Profiles folder to what it previous was or does Uninstalling last Windows Updates have no effect on the Firefox folder?

Hello from France,

When I do cmd+T to open a new tab, I write the web address and press the Enter key, Mozilla opens a second (inactive) tab and let me (aloooone!) in the first (empty) one. Furthermore, sometimes, when I do cmd+T, it opens a new tab but when, after this, I do cmd+L, it doesn’t let me write anything. I have to touch the search bar with my finger.

Only with my iPad (iPad pro 2020)...

Any idea/explanation?
