Is there no way to save tabs each time I now close my browser? I don't want to bookmark them as almost all are not to be saved. I used to close my browser and be able to reopen the save tabs when I started my browser the next time, now I can't, it's totally crippled my abilities online and what I am using my browser for and leaving me lost now.

My POS system is set to open in firefox as defult page. So it would be nice if I could open it in full screen by default.

So Can I know, Is there any way to make the firefox window open in full screen by default?

I know that Firefox can expand to fill my entire screen with its Full Screen feature by togglling Full Screen keyboard shortcut of F11 key. But just I want to enable that feature by default.

Any suggestions on how to revert to full screen by default would be greatly appreciate.

Thanks in advance.

My browser opens new links in new tabs. I want them to open new links in the same tab.

Others inquire about the same issue get a response saying:;

"Did you try it? Some sites add a target="_blank" attribute to links. Links with these attributes are supposed to open in a new window when left clicked. However, Firefox by default opens these links in a new tab in the current window. By setting browser.link.open_newwindow to 1, these links will instead open in the current tab/window."

I need step-by-step help understanding what I need to do to set the browser are suggested in the above response.

Hello, for my study I'm searching a lot of information on different websites for different school subjects and have currently accumulated over 1000 tabs open/active in my Firefox (web) on my laptop. I usually open websites and don't close them with the assumption and just to be on the safe side I might need them later. However, I would like to group/bundle these tabs into different categories according to the subjects I'm working to keep it manageable. Is this possible (preferably not by means of an add-on)?

Hello, I switched to Firefox from Chrome, however, the browser is missing one of the most important features I use almost all the time - swipe left to go back and swipe right to go forwards. I checked about:config and browser.gesture.swipe.left is set to Browser:BackOrBackDuplicate but it does not work. All answers on Mozilla Support and elsewhere are outdated or do not answer the question at all. Please fix this, it is the reason why I switched back to Chrome twice before. Any help is appreciated.

I went to settings and set firefox to open links in a NEW TAB instead of a new window, but it still opens links in a new window. I did a search on google and when I click on the link for the website to see the information it is still opening in a new window. How can I fix this so I don't have a lot of new windows. It's irritating to have to close all those stinking windows just to get back to my original window. I just want the links I click on to open in a new tab.

After installing the new version 106.01, restoring recently closed windows in History doesn't work even though it is highlighted as being active, but nothing shows or happens when pointing at and clicking on "Recently Closed Tabs".

(I accidently closed one of my two windows and therefore lost all my tabs.) (I know I can restore the tabs one by one, but that will be a huge task.

So what can I do to restore my lost Firefox window?

Thanks in advance. Jens Giertsen Denmark

Good morning, There are multiple questions. 1. Now everytime I click on a link in an article it opens a completely different page of firefox instead of just making a tab on the line with all the other tabs. It also loads that new page half way off the screen on the right hand side and I have to drag it over, open it full sized and then screw around with cutting and pasting the url into a new tab on the old firefox page. How do I stop it from doing this? It's realllllly annoying.

2. It is screwing up some of my graphics by putting horizontal lines into the picutres to where you can't view it. Specifically on jigsaws from jigsawplanet.com. I work on a gaming site and this really impacts my ability to do my job (or have fun).

3. One one particular site HEXrpg.com, I set my view at 120% and every page I go it it reverts it back to 100%. This did NOT used to happen and it only seems to be happening on that particular site..... However, it could be on other sites as I've had to set my entire computer to 120% now so I can read the posts on that one site and now everything is too big for my screens in the other sites.

I don't know what you guys were trying to do, but whatever it was, can you please put it back to the way it was before this last (possibly last 2) updates. If not I'm going to have to switch to Edge or Chrome and I really don't want to have to do this because I've been with Firefox forever. HELP!?! Deborah DeVane

I've asked this question a long time ago, and received no answers. I resorted to resetting it every time, however a new problem has come about, forcing me to ask again.

Whenever I open my browser, my tabs have reset themselves to default width. I prefer them at a wider width, so I navigate to about:config and edit the browser.tabs.tabMinWidth to 100. I have to do this every time.

However, for some reason doing this now also hides/removes tab close buttons on each tab, which is problematic to my style of browsing.

I had an userCSS file, but even after removing it as a test, the problem persists. If it matters, my style of browsing has me keep two windows open at any given time. I did try to change it with only one window open, but the change did not stick.

Only tab-specific add-ons I have are FoxyTab and a tab suspender.

Any help is appreciated, be it making sure the tab close buttons do not disappear, or be it making sure the tabs remain at minimum of 100 width.

Hi!

I had two Firefox windows open at the same time, one with a lot of tabs open in it, and one with only a few open. I was going to close firefox in order to restart the computer, and closed the window with many tabs in it first, and then I closed the window with only a few tabs in it. The next time I started Firefox, only the window with a few tabs in it loaded, and not the other window in which I had the vast majority of all opened tabs. And I can't find any way to restore the tabs from the other window either. I have looked under the History menu, but I don't see any option to restore a previous session there, so I'm guessing that Firefox thinks that it already has restored the previous session when I opened it up again.

So, how can I restore the tabs I had in the other window, with a lot of tabs opened?
