So after wiping my system for a fresh windows install, I pulled out the backup.json4 and recovery.json4 from my backup drive and plopped it in place of sessionstore.json4

And all of my tabs and windows came back! So far so good!

But then after closing some tabs and moving things around, when I close the session out again, it doesn't update the sessionstore file, or any of the stuff in the backup folder to reflect those changes.

When I open firefox again it starts as a session with all my windows/tabs after the file-replace.

I use firefox for managing tutorial videos, which involves separating them into different windows/tab arrangements, so any tips on how to resolve this issue and get firefox to start updating the sessionstore would be appreciated.

Thank you!

I don't know if its an issue with the theme or Firefox itself (I think it's Firefox because it already happened on previous versions), but when I open certain number of tabs, or a tab with certain characteristics that I don't know, the whole row of tabs increases its height. And it annoys me. Thanks beforehand!

I have once again lost all my pinned tabs. The answers to this I'm seeing are random and unstructured. This is becoming an issue for me as I use this function frequently. Can the Mozilla team PLEASE fix this properly as it appears to mess up a few folks. And the answer is NOT having to quit and restart. They should be presevered in their own right. And please can you implement synching of Pinned Tabs across my login domain. Ta muchly

For the last few updates of firefox I haven't been able to restore closed tabs with the regular keyboard shortcut (believe it was ctrl+alt+t and now ctrl+shift+t). The shortcut simply does nothing at all. It is frustrating as sometimes I close a tab by accident and then I have to go through the whole process clicking to find it instead of being able to bring it back up in half the time using the shortcut. I am on firefox 90.0.

Last time Firefox updated, I managed to find information online about moving the website tabs so they were below the bookmarks instead of at the top of the screen. It was a huge pain-in-the-butt to do.

After a recent re-install, the tabs have moved themselves back to the top of the screen and nothing I do seems to be able to move them back below the bookmarks.

Is there a way I can move the tabs that doesn't involve spending hours hunting through posts on the web, changing hidden Firefox settings, and recoding .css files?

If not, why do you not give the option to move the tabs wherever the user wants? Especially when it makes far more sense to have the website tabs directly above the website being viewed, at least in my opinion?

I'm currently using Firefox 85.0.2 (64-bit).

HERE IS THE ANSWER Here is the answer to get TABS BELOW with Firefox V90 . . copy all of this code below the broken line into your - userChrome.css - file and save it. You can modify the 45px in this line if you wish to get an appropriate height . . just experiment with different numbers till you get it right --menubar-height: 45px; /*30px|41px=11px; caption buttons on menubar*/

Also to make the tabs wider or narrower, modify the line which is coded width: 50vw !important;

Finally you must enable - css - in Firefox, by typing about:config into your address bar, and search for toolkit. When all the toolkit options appear change the one which says toolkit.legacyUserProfileCustomizations.stylesheets to TRUE by click the icon in the right hand column. Than close Firefox and reopen, and check how it looks This will enable your - css - file to be read, and interpreted and accepted by the Firefox browser.

Hi,

I noticed that when I open a specific site, the tabs bar becomes huge, and when I close it, the bar goes back to its normal height. For example, it happens when I go to this page: Problematic Site

I have no idea why it happens. I remember that it did happen before, but I only noticed now that it has something to do with having some specific pages loaded. So I know it has happened because of some other sites, but I don't remember which ones.

Even if I change the tab, the tab bar stays big, as long as the problematic page is loaded (even on the background).

This also happens in safe mode, so it's not because of my extensions, I imagine. Also happening on another laptop here.

Does anyone have any idea why this is happening?

Thanks,

I have several hundred tabs, tick them all and want to bookmark them, but that never works. I'm not sure what "tick them all" refers to.

There's no built-in way to bookmark all open tabs across all windows at once, but Firefox does have a feature to bookmark all of the tabs in the current window to a new folder. The shortcut is Ctrl+Shift+D, or you can find it on

classic Bookmarks menu on the optional menu bar optional Bookmarks menu button for the main toolbar Does that feature work? If not, is there any error message?

Are you still able to add one bookmarks manually, for example by clicking the star icon in the address bar? If that doesn't work, it can indicate a database problem (more details if needed).

I will also add that the "Settings" menu does not open! Settings, formerly called Options, should open an internal page in a new tab. If you type or paste the address about:preferences into the address bar and press Enter, can Firefox show the page?


==Ctrl+Shift+D = NOT WORK / NOR REACTION / NO MESSAGE ERROR /NOTHING HAPPEN This marks 1000 Tabs, but nothing else can be done, no reaction, no error, no message, I don't know how to write or add 1000 tabs to the bookmarks, I asked a many developers, for 3 years and no one can help, I tried 100 different ways and there's nothing I can do, do I really need to lose my data? "Reset firefox completely" = data loss Even moving the profile and trying to restore it always ends with the same problem, still nothing works, how to save all 1000 tabs to a text file, even the best of the best ways fails, because after saving it is 0KB, no data !!!

I believe this is a bad interaction between my Device's theme and Firefox's behavior. In Firefox for Android, whenever I close a tab, a "Tab closed. Undo" popup comes up. This in and of itself isn't too bad, but the problem is it's *exactly hovering over the last tab*.

So if I want to close multiple tabs in a row, I can do that for any tab *except* the last one. If I want to close the last two tabs, for instance, which I often do, I have to tap close on one of them, wait 5 seconds for the popup to close, then tap the second.

I've tried tapping on this popup, but it does nothing. It would be nice if tapping on the popup closed it. But ideally, the popup would not obscure the "close tab" button on the last tab

Maybe the popup could push the tabs up, so it's under them rather than on top of them? To be honest, I don't care what the solution is, just offering some.

Sorry to rant - it's just very annoying for what I find to be a very common UI interaction with Firefox for Android. I'd really like to just be able to close my tabs in any order, without thinking about it, and without waiting 5 seconds between tabs for a popup...

I'm using Firefox 90.0.12 on a OnePlus Nord N200 5G running Oxygen OS 11.0.0.0.DE17AA (Android 11).

Hi Everybody! I use Firefox Nightly 91 for Android and I wish to know how I can reverse the ordering of my tabs.

I don't want to rearrange my tabs (which seems not possible and has been answered here several times already). I just want to have the possibility to reverse the ordering: currently, my "latest" tabs are at the bottom of the list but I want them to be at the top. Just that.

By the way, if I remember well it was like I wish it to be on a previous version but was suddenly reversed after an update.

If there is an appropriate entry for that in about:config, I'll be a happier user!

Thanks in advance!

Running Windows 10 64 bit with the latest updates on Firefox of 89.0.2. I cannot open a new tab to the google search bar by just opening a new tab. It defaults to showing a google search bar, but Firefox will not allow me to type into it. I am constantly redirected to the address bar to write my google searches or to a separate "search" in the same address bar, depending on which option I selected in settings.

I only have two options in Settings: 1) Use the address bar for search and navigation or 2) Add search bar in toolbar. I have Google set as my search engine.

Your previous version of Firefox did allow me to do exactly what I wanted. Now I cannot.

Under "New Tab" you only allow for 2 selections; Firefox home or a blank page, the latter of which does not show the personalized "rows". If you allowed a Google option there, it might resolve my problem.

I attached a picture of my new tab; it shows the search bar for Google, but it now says "Firefox" where it use to have the ever changing "Google" Logo. I do not mind the Firefox logo, but I seriously am upset that I am forced to type searches in the address bar. Who does that?

Furthermore, by forcing me to type in the address bar, its much harder to see what I am typing and allow for me to make corrections. Once I hit enter, it sends me to a typical Google search page, where I can then make changes, but this seems like an annoying step.

Am I missing something, some setting someplace where I can type in the search bar I indicated on my attachment?

On a side note: Thank you for adding a "Personalize" button on a new tab. It now allows me to add rows for shortcuts. Before I had to:

1. Load about:config?filter=browser.newtabpage.activity-stream.topSitesRows in the Firefox address bar. 2. Double-click on the preference browser.newtabpage.activity-stream.topSitesRows and change its value to the desired number of rows and click ok. 3. Check the New Tab Page to see the change right away and modify the number of rows accordingly if needed.

Which I technically have yet to change, because I prefer more than the 4 row limit you set. You will see those shortcuts in the attachment for the new tab.

Thank you for your time. Be safe and have a good day. :)
