I lost over 700 tabs yesterday when FF Crashed. When it was re-opened, I only had one Tab and none of my pinned tabs were there and all the other tabs were gone. All Tabs Helper had all but about 30-40 tabs suspended and I had opened and closed FF many times in the past and it had always reopened the complete list of Tabs with all but the pinned tabs suspended. I really don't want to go into history and tell it to open all the tabs from the last month, this is definitely asking for trouble. I am posting this from EDGE so as not to screw up any chances of a full recovery if possible. Thanks, Ed

firefox tab name edit: can a user name tab at will ?

right now it has LOGO and "Home" but i want it to read something like OSC-US Office of Special Counsel-Independent Agency-Home because i just do.

i have three other bookmarks for OSC: i can edit the bookmark name from "properties" but have never known whether i can also edit the name shown on a tab.

LOGO Home isn't too helpful to me. but even just knowing that i CAN'T edit tab names will be helpful to know, so i can stop thinking about it and get some sleep after another bag of chocolate-chip cookies. being an american right now is plenty stressful.

who named them "cookies" anyhow?-is it bc they kind of leave crumbs? did i win?

thank you for helping. i do appreciate it.

I had Firefox opened in a main windows with maybe 50 tabs of tabs I wanted to look at (documentaries, stand-up shows, stuff from work etc). I opened a second window and while navigating in the second window I mistakenly close the main. As one does, I hit Open recently closed window. Guess what? Firefox opens a window from yesterday and a few more empty ones, but not the one I just closed. Can someone help me with this?

Default position for new child tabs

I used to be that if you clicked a link and "Opened in a New Tab" that this child tab would appear to the right of all existing tabs.

In the later versions of FF, these child tabs are inserted directly after the parent tab that created them.

This may make logic sense to some people but, maybe because I'm dyslexic, position is critical and all my existing tabs beyond this child have just been moved up one place, which I find very confusing.

I often Open a New Tab for temporary tangents, so I don't lose my place in an existing page, but this means that my primary tabs are tromboning right and left as I open/close.

Is there a parameter that I can change in Config to set the behaviour back to adding new tabs to the end of the list?

Problem began with not being able to open a new tab. I updated to FF 78.0.2.

Now I still cannot open a new tab and my tabs are superimposed on my bookmark folders. Clicking on that menu bar opens a folder, not a tab. FF is unusable.

Also, the three coloured buttons, appear down on the webpage rather than in the menu bar. In order to get them out of there, I have to create a title bar that holds only them and the title of the page I'm on which seems a waste of space. Can I get them on the bar next to the search box?

Image attached.

Thanks for any help. Greatly appreciated.

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?

Regards,

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!

Hi,

I had a window open with many tabs. I opened a new window with 1 tab. I accidentally closed the window with the many tabs, then closed the one with 1 tab. Now, I would like to restaure the window with many tabs but since it wasn't the last closed, Firefox restaure the one with 1 tab. How can I do since I'm trying to restaure a window that wasn't the last closed?... I have red: "If you close each window one by one, only the tabs of the last closed window will be reopened the next time you start Firefox".... So I'm afraid it's not possible but never know ?...

Thanks! Cyril

Hi, I've been having this issue for a few months now, and it can get really annoying. Like the title says, the right side of Firefox is cut off a little for me, both in fullscreen and windowed fullscreen. This problem occurs on all websites, and is only fixed when I restart in safe mode, though I don't think any extensions that I have could be causing this problem. Any ideas would be much appreciated.

When I start Firefox only the focused page is loaded. All other pages are blank as I set 'Clear history when Firefox closes' to 'automatically clear' the cache on exit. If I click on another tab it refreshs it. How do I to get every page to load on startup? Firefox treats pinned and normal tabs differently. On restart I have to 'Select all Tabs', then 'Reload page' every time. It used to load all pages automatically but now it doesn't. | Is there an extension? Or an About:Config entry I can change or insert? Private browsing is not used. Pages are open in tabs not windows. I have 20+ tabs open all the time. About half are pinned. Side Note - I would be happy to see the "Reload All Tabs" menu option reinstated.
