The add-on extension "NewTabURL" (by "sogame") provided the option I want and used for a number of years. But it stopped working when Firefox was updated to version 16.0. When I click for a new tab, all I get is a completely blank tab. How can I automatically have the new tab always be a copy of the current active tab?

Can the extension "NewTabURL" be revised to work in version 16 and/or version 17? If not, how else can I get the new tab functionality that I desire? I can't seem to find any other extension that provides that functionality.

hi all

Having updated to Firefox 17.0 (from 16.0.2), for some reason I don't get warned when closing multiple tabs any more.

I've confirmed the relevant options are selected and am 100% certain this was working fine before updating Firefox today.

I've replicated the problem on my vista 32bit platform and on XP 32 bit too.

I also looked at the changelog for Firefox 17 but can't see any explanation for this change in behaviour, although I wonder whether this might have something to do with it "772319 No option to disable the "Close other tabs" prompt."

As I use Tab Mix Plus (add-on), I've also checked Firefox in safemode and have found the native tab warnings not working, so have concluded it's an issue with Firefox (rather than something to do with an extension).

I've checked "about:config" and "browser.tabs.warnOnClose" is set to true, as is "browser.tabs.warnOnCloseOtherTabs".

Any help would be appreciated.


Thanks,

Gary

I have been forced to create a new profile because, after an update to version 17.0, Firefox persisted in opening tabs from the previous session. Unfortunately another problem developed, namely, the constant appearance of a series of thumbnails in a new tab, a facility that I definitely do not want. After consulting Mozilla help and forums I tried all of the suggested solutions to no avail.

I eventually went about:config browser.newtabpage.enabled and rendered it false. The annoying thumbnails have disappeared!!!!!

How do I stop FF from restoring previous session, I've already played with all the options I can find but nothing stops it unless I delete history each time.

Recently, FF has started opening my last tabs when I start a fresh session. I have already checked to make sure that none of the applicable settings are enabled, such as under Options->General: When FF starts "SHOW MY HOMEPAGE" is selected. But for some reason, it opens my last session. The only way I've been able to get it to stop doing this is by having it delete my browsing history after I close the session. I don't want this since I often use my history to re-find information I need for class research. I have made certain that all my settings are the same from before FF started doing this. It only started doing this after the computer was turned off for a long weekend.

I've already searched through the Mozilla help pages and all I can find is how to restore the previous session or similar. I don't want to restore my previous session, I want it to stop restoring my previous session without having to delete my browsing history each time.

It seems intuitive to me that opening multiple tabs (w/ one copy of Firefox running) should be more efficient than opening multiple copies of Firefox, but I can't find anything about this when I google it or search your site. Which is better, or does it not matter? If one is better over the other, is there a lot of difference?

f it matters, I usually have 4-6 tabs open, but sometimes 10 or so. He usually has 4-6 copies of Firefox running, w/ 1 or 2 tabs each.

I'm tired of arguing this, so I'd really like to know. Thank you!

I have history turned off so images aren't cached for the New Tab Page and have to be reloaded when Firefox is restarted. Also, some of the sites that I have pinned are using HTTPS and wont allow their images to be cached.

Is there a way for me to set a custom image for each pinned website? Either a custom screenshot that isn't in the cache or an icon of some sort? Anything would be better than a blank box there.

Thank you

This just began to happen yesterday. I have a MacBook Pro 10.7.5. I can always get to the first page that I open in a new browser, but any page after that that I try to open in a new tab will seem to load but the page is blank. This does not just happen with one website I have tried myriad of different sites.. only the first tab loads in a new browser. I am having to open a new browser if i want to go to another link - very frustrating..

Tab Mix Plus will move it to bottom of view-port, but not below address bar at top of view-port.

Extremely awkward; makes navigation difficult and harder to locate tabs, being more distant from view-port.

The new tab behavior is driving me nuts. It keeps re-centering on tabs nearest the start of the list when I move a tab. How do I change this?

I don't want to download an app. I would rather add a new string in about config or just change of the ones in there to false. It's making my work life rather difficult, to be forced to go all the way back to the end of my list after moving one tab just to have to do it again. I mean it's to the point where I might consider changing browsers if they had tab scroll bars.

Edit: At this point I will download any app. Please make this stupid feature stop.

I cannot open a new tab by clicking the + sign in Firefox. This feature works in Chrome and IE. I have uninstalled and reinstalled Firefox. I have done all the available updates. I have done a reboot 2x. Ctrl T will not open a new tab either; however, I can do a search for something and right click to open in a new tab. I use the tabs frequently and really miss them.

At one point the names of all my Tab Groups appeared above the Tabs. That is, on every page there's a horizontal list of open Tabs. Above that there used to be a similar looking horizontal list of all Tab Groups. Now that horizontal list of Tab Groups is gone. This was useful for rearranging and re-categorizing Tabs into different Groups because I could see the whole page for any given Tab, and could move the Tab to a different Tab Group simply by clicking on the Tab and dragging to to any Group in the Tab Groups section above the Tabs section. This was usually easier than rearranging Tabs on the Tab Groups page (accessed by clicking the "Group your tabs" icon at the upper right of the display). I don't know how this feature got there or why it went away, but I liked it. How can I get this back?
