It seems intuitive to me that opening multiple tabs (w/ one copy of Firefox running) should be more efficient than opening multiple copies of Firefox, but I can't find anything about this when I google it or search your site. Which is better, or does it not matter? If one is better over the other, is there a lot of difference?

f it matters, I usually have 4-6 tabs open, but sometimes 10 or so. He usually has 4-6 copies of Firefox running, w/ 1 or 2 tabs each.

I'm tired of arguing this, so I'd really like to know. Thank you!

I have history turned off so images aren't cached for the New Tab Page and have to be reloaded when Firefox is restarted. Also, some of the sites that I have pinned are using HTTPS and wont allow their images to be cached.

Is there a way for me to set a custom image for each pinned website? Either a custom screenshot that isn't in the cache or an icon of some sort? Anything would be better than a blank box there.

Thank you

This just began to happen yesterday. I have a MacBook Pro 10.7.5. I can always get to the first page that I open in a new browser, but any page after that that I try to open in a new tab will seem to load but the page is blank. This does not just happen with one website I have tried myriad of different sites.. only the first tab loads in a new browser. I am having to open a new browser if i want to go to another link - very frustrating..

Also, none button work in FF, such as Home, Back, Forward, or refresh. This is so aggravating!!

There is no "Tabs on Top" option.

Tab Mix Plus will move it to bottom of view-port, but not below address bar at top of view-port.

Extremely awkward; makes navigation difficult and harder to locate tabs, being more distant from view-port.

The new tab behavior is driving me nuts. It keeps re-centering on tabs nearest the start of the list when I move a tab. How do I change this?

I don't want to download an app. I would rather add a new string in about config or just change of the ones in there to false. It's making my work life rather difficult, to be forced to go all the way back to the end of my list after moving one tab just to have to do it again. I mean it's to the point where I might consider changing browsers if they had tab scroll bars.

Edit: At this point I will download any app. Please make this stupid feature stop.

I cannot open a new tab by clicking the + sign in Firefox. This feature works in Chrome and IE. I have uninstalled and reinstalled Firefox. I have done all the available updates. I have done a reboot 2x. Ctrl T will not open a new tab either; however, I can do a search for something and right click to open in a new tab. I use the tabs frequently and really miss them.

HELP!!!

At one point the names of all my Tab Groups appeared above the Tabs. That is, on every page there's a horizontal list of open Tabs. Above that there used to be a similar looking horizontal list of all Tab Groups. Now that horizontal list of Tab Groups is gone. This was useful for rearranging and re-categorizing Tabs into different Groups because I could see the whole page for any given Tab, and could move the Tab to a different Tab Group simply by clicking on the Tab and dragging to to any Group in the Tab Groups section above the Tabs section. This was usually easier than rearranging Tabs on the Tab Groups page (accessed by clicking the "Group your tabs" icon at the upper right of the display). I don't know how this feature got there or why it went away, but I liked it. How can I get this back?

I have used Firefox for years and have always used Tabs instead of opening new windows. I have always been able to click the little "X" on the right side of the tab to close it. I am finding now that I cannot close the current tab by doing this. I have to click on another open tab and then click on the other tab I wanted to close.

I have looked through the Options many times trying to see if there is a setting I need to change, but have not found anything.

Is it possible in this version of Firefox (v17.0.1) to close the current tab?
