Tabs Unexpectedly Opening in New Windows in Full-Screen Mode on MacOS

Hi firefox community,

I am using Firefox version 127.0.2 as my main browser on MacOS Sonoma 14.5. For the past few months, when using Firefox in Mac's full-screen mode, I've been experiencing an issue where one of the multiple open tabs unexpectedly displays in a separate window the moment I click on it.

This behavior didn't occur previously, and I believe it started happening about 3 months ago. It doesn't happen every time, but occurs a few times a day when I least expect it, making it difficult to identify the specific conditions that trigger it. I use a Magic Trackpad, and after switching to full-screen using the three-finger gesture, the moment I try to activate a specific tab, that tab alone displays as a separate window in full-screen mode.

Is it possible that a Firefox version update has changed this behavior? If this is a Firefox issue, is there a way to capture debug logs to have the developers investigate it?

Alternatively, if there's an option to prevent tabs from opening in new separate windows, that would be an effective workaround. Could you please let me know if such an option exists?

Best regards,

I'm talking about how when you go to fill out a text input, it'll suggest that input next time you go to a similar field. Well, that system just saved my social security number as an input after I filled out a government form. I would like to turn this feature off now, and delete the history of it if I can. Is there a way I can do that?

I'd attach an example image of a different website, but the box goes away when trying to take a screenshot.

tab recovery?

Hi, my pc (I think the ssd/os) just quit on me, is there a way for me to build a new system (reformat) onto a new drive and either using the old drive (if accessable) or "the cloud" recover all my old tabs from that pc onto the new one? I had a list of tabs saved, but it hasn't been updated in a couple months (yes, I have a lot and can't remember them all).

I'm hopeing it's as simple as putting the old drive as a secondary drive and copying the "appdata" folder or something to the new pc.

System: windows 7 (yeah, I don't want to give it up) on evga mobo with i7-x990 cpu and maxed out ram. Samsung ssd (2.5"). Most all "personal data" is stored and accessed from my nas, just don't know how to do that for the tab hostory.

Hi, I have local saved html file which loads images from our security cams The html has only code like this

<html>
<head></head>
	<body>
<script type="text/javascript">
  var height_array = new Array();
<script type="text/javascript">
  var height_array = new Array();
  var width_array = new Array();
  width_array[1] = 320;
  height_array[1] = 240;

<img src="http://192.168.2.2:78/livefeed?oid=1&size=640x480&t=" width="320" height="240" onload='setTimeout(function() {src = src.substring(0, (src.lastIndexOf("t=")+2))+(new Date()).getTime()}, 1000)' onerror='setTimeout(function() {src = src.substring(0, (src.lastIndexOf("t=")+2))+(new Date()).getTime()}, 5000)' alt='' />

<.../script....>

No matter what I change in the "normal" settings - Firefox is not loading the page at all.(file:///Users/drew/Downloads/CAM2.html)

In the left bottom corner it only shows "Performing a TLS Handshake with 192.168.2.2". And thats it. Every other browser is able to open the page and show the camera pictures, only Firefox not. Is there a easy fix for this?

OK - I must be missing something. On my previous browser, Opera, if I wanted to see details of my passwords then I needed to put in the computer password, so keeping them quite secure. However, Firefox seems to let anyone using the browser to access the full details of all my passwords, even offering to copy them! This has to be the most insecure approach possible - surely this can't be correct, can it?
