I want FF to open multiple sites when I first load the program. But, I don't want them all to be included as a home page selection. I can do this in Chrome and Edge, but I don't see how in FF. Currently, every time I hit the home icon in FF, all tabs are reloaded to the same tabs that are already open.

Hi,

I have installed Firefox on my kids Android tablets and the tabs bar is missing and I am not able to turn it on. Without the tabs bar they cannot easily switch between tabs, they also don't immediately see what pages they have open - without clicking the tabs button. The tablets are 10" and running Android 10 and the latest Firefox.

Desktop FireFox browser v. 84.0.2 (64-bit)

I made the mistake of asking to always open a site in a container and for it to remember my choice. Now I can't get it to open in no container. The context menu choice to "Reopen in Container" => "No Container" seems to ignored.

The issue: I have to different logins for a site (dev.azure.com). I open one in the work container and the other in no container. I didn't realize the open in container would operate only on the domain, which makes sense in hindsight. However, now the site is broken for one of the sites, and I can't find where to reset this choice. How do I do that?

It been now the second time that upon opening firefox, it doesn't open the previous session but a new one. It's the second time that I loose ALL my tabs. The "restore previous session" is greyed, I tried the about:sessionrestore but it doesn't give me the possibility to restore the previous session, and on my computer, the sessionstore backup just has the restoresession from today. Is there any way to avoid this?

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.

Links suddenly not opening in a new tab (since last update?)

Hi. I've been using Firefox for Mac for ages and when clicking on a link, it would open the page in a new tab.

However, since the last update (84.0.2 (64-bit)) when I click on a link it opens it in the same tab.

I've checked options in "preferences" and can't find any option other than "open links in tabs instead of new windows".

I have also gone into "about:config" and checked the "browser.link.open_newwindow" which is correctly marked 3 (tabs).

I've disabled all add-ons but this did not solve the problem. :(

I'd appreciate any help ;) Thanks

I found when pressing Alt+Enter in the address bar, the link will open in a new tab, which is nice. But if I press Alt+click a link in the page, the link does not open in a new tab (while Shift+click can open in a new window as expected). I'm not sure if it's a problem, but I hope Firefox can have this feature so that opening a link in a new tab can be more convenient.

Besides, in some browsers, drag a link to a nearby place will open in a new tab. However, in Firefox, this manner does not work, unless I drag a link to the tabs bar.

I have Firefox set to restore tabs from the previous session. That works great ... until I set Edge as the default browser in order to do some troubleshooting. Then I set FF back to the default browser, started FF, and the tabs weren't there from the previous session. There was only one tab, the which was the Homepage. Is there some way that I can restore all of those tabs when I start FF?

Hi,

With the up-to-date version of Firefox Androind 84.1, Youtube videos(m.youtube.com) won't play in the background (on a tab that isn't on the foreground or in another app) any more. Downgrading to an older Firefox version does allow background playing. Is disabling updates the only option to maintain this function?

When Firefox is launched on my Mac desktop, it takes a long time to display a browser window, and the window is filled with innumerable tabs whose origins I can't understand. I have tried many of the remedies suggested for dealing with too many tabs, and none seem to work. I trashed the Firefox application and the folder /User/Library/Application_Support/Firefox, restarted the Mac, and Firefox works well for a while, but when I do a Google Search the browser window is suddenly populated with huge numbers of tabs that seem similar to what I have seen in past occasions, and Firefox stalls. Are there some other files containing a record of all these tabs that I can delete, to stop this from happening?

I can't "Refresh Firefox", because Firefox is unusable at the point when the problem occurs.

I just came back to Firefox after about 2 months, as Microsoft crushed my OS with their fall feature update. I could not get many items running, and just had to start from scratch.

That being said, I surely do not recall that every time I clicked a link, it would open in a new tab. I mean, every single time. Who ever thought that was a good idea.

Anyone have a clue as to what's happening here? I usually only want a new tab to open when either I choose it as a right-click option, or when builders have invested it specifically in their code, as they know it will navigate away from their site, etc...

I would be most thankful to get this baby back running like normal. Your help is appreciated!

Btw, fresh windows 10 install. The only extensions I have running are adblock, lastpass, blur, downloadthemall and new tab homepage (which just let's me determine the page address.)
