In the current version of Firefox, if (which is very rare) I go and open more than 17 tabs, some go off the one end of the top of the screen, and I must scroll over to find them. If I remember, on a very old version it was either 15 or 11 tabs before that happened.

Is there a way for me to change the 'limit number of tabs before they go off the end'? I would rather like to do that, but I have not found how. I would be most grateful if you can help.

Thanks,

Peter

With recent versions of Firefox, I haven't found how to open all tabs from another synced computer. They use to be displayed in bookmarks or history lateral menu and I could use the right button to open all. If this option has been removed, I don't understand why going steps back.

Hiya I want to be warned when quitting multiple tabs BUT I do not want the session restored when opening again. This used to be possible but now in Settings if I untick Restore previous session even though Warn you when quitting the browser is ticked it does not give a warning when I quit Firefox. So this means if its unticked then if I accidently hit the close button I loose all the open tabs in firefox. If ticked I have to close all the tabs manually each time I close firefox to prevent thm opening when I start Firefox again. Im on Windows 10 Pro 21H1 with Firefox 93.0 any idea if I can change this behaviour in the advanced prefs? (about:config) thanks for any insights A

Hello. I've just recently refreshed Firefox. Before I did that, I had a home icon next to the round refresh icon on the upper left of the menu. Now I don't have it. And I can' click to the home icon to get a new home page of Firefox! And I am NOT a happy camper. Did you all forget to put that on there or what?

Yes, I am fully aware that I can click the plus sign to get a new page. But I love the home page icon. Is it coming back by any chance?

I have deleted all of firefox on my computer and profiles and cleared all of mozillla from my registy. With a clean install and no extensions, I still get a new tab every time I right click on a link. The context menu I wanted to use and select open link in new tab does appear, but the new tab is already opened. I have to click in an open area to remove the menu. I have switched to the brave browser for now, and it behaves exactly like firefox used to.

Hi, Opened firefox today on my desktop pc and the open tabs at the top of FF just stroll to the right/end of my tabs as soon as i put the mouse over them to select one.

try use left arrow or scroll wheel to go to the left and just immediately mouse over to click a particular tab and before can immediately scrolls back to the right/end.

also have noticed when at the right of my open tabs mouse over any tab and whereas before would get the pop up showing the title of the page now just flashs the title up for a fraction of a second not even enought time to read it.

plus now have tried to select from the drop down box in this ask your question dialog box but when click on down arrow to select the appropiate section just flases up the options for a fraction of a section giving no time to select one. Have found only way to select is to use the arrow keys on my keyboard

thanks ian

I've recently updated to 92.0.1 and I've noticed that when I download a PDF attachment or file that firefox opens in a new tab rather than using the default adobe program. I've looked at settings and applications and changed to to "always ask" but I don t get any option to use adobe to open it or any other program. Also it seems to save the file in the downloads folder as a "firefox html document" and not a pdf file

Clicking a Facebook or Instagram link in a Google search opens a new tab and kills the Google tab. Why? I have to restore the closed tab (and its history) from History > Recently Closed Tabs. This has not yet happened with any non-Facebook-affiliated tabs.

I know that Facebook is evil, but damn.

Firefox 92.0, 64-bit (This has happened in the last five or so versions.) Windows 10 Home, V. 20H2, OS Build 19042.1237, Windows Feature Experience Pack 120.2212.3530.0
