Hi, I have updated to the latest verson 75.0, and I am a little uncomfortable for the default action when I open a new tab, the cursor focused on the address bar , and the address bar was widened and made a little shadow to the bookmarks bar which caused discomfort for me, because I always open website by bookmarks bar, no need for typing the full address in the adress bar. I have searched the config options but none is effective and also tried about:config, is there anyway not to widen the address bar or is there a configuration when I click the bookmark in current tab,it will open in new tab not replace the current tab .If it is possible by not downloading a lower verson,please let me know how to config it,thank you.

In the new version of the Developer Edition the options "close tabs to the right" and "close other tabs" are in a sub-menu named "Close Multiple Tabs" inside the context menu. Is there's a way to change this so that they will appear directly in the main context menu? I use "close tabs to the right" often and I find this very annoying.

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.

In English : Hello, I use several hundred tabs (don't judge me ^^). And I would like to be able to list open tabs like you can do with bookmarks and history. You can indeed filter and select in bookmarks and history. For example, I would like to filter all open tabs containing "foo", and select the ones I want to close among those. And not to do it one by one. Is it possible ? Thank you.

En Français : Bonjour, J'utilise plusieurs centaines d'onglets (ne me jugez pas ^^). Et j'aimerais pouvoir lister les onglets ouverts comme on peut le faire avec les marque-pages et l'historique. On peut en effet filtrer et sélectionner dans les marque-pages et l'historique. Par exemple, j'aimerais filtrer tous les onglets ouverts contenant "toto", et sélectionner ceux que je souhaite fermer parmi ceux-là. Et non pas de le faire un à un. Est-ce possible ? Merci.

I'm on Firefox 79, Windows 10. I get jarred by the new tab navigation behaviour, where Ctrl-Tab brings you to the most recent tab rather than the next tab shown along the top. However, I can see its merits. I would like to be able to use both, effortlessly, without having to delve into the preferences to switch behaviour. Is there a way to do this?

How to auto download 20 tabs on startup?

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.

Hard to hit the "right spot" on the X icon when closing a tab - only a very small area gets a response

When I try to close a tab, if I place my cursor over the X icon and click, nothing happens. If I carefully hover the tip of my cursor over the very bottom of the (invisible) box around the X, the box will turn darker grey and I can finally click and close the tab. I'd estimate the grey box around the X is 1cmx1cm, but only the bottom 1-2mm elicit a response.

I have restarted Firefox and my computer. My browser version is up to date. I am not using any extensions. I am on a 2009 Mac running Yosemite.

On the previous Firefox browser I had on my Android phone, I set it to close all my tabs when I closed the browser. I've just updated to the new Firefox on Android and I can't find the option to do this. I have to manually close all the tabs every time I close the browser. Surely they haven't given us less options and features in the new version?!

Pressing quit in the app closes the tabs but it doesn't also close the app down on my phone.

I'm lost, I tried countless of different "solutions" on the web to restore the previous session before I updated my old Firefox. When I update from version 54 to the newest one, all my open tabs are gone, or FF opens tabs from YEARS ago. I have a full backup of the original V54 instalation including the Mozilla folders in LocalLow, Local and Roaming. So swapping files is no problem.

I badly need all the open tabs again for productivity reasons alone. I hope someone knows how to restore the previous session before the upgrade.
