Firefox will not create new tabs

I was using the tree style tabs add-on. Firefox popped up a message about a problem with that add-on, which I unfortunately clicked on, and all my tabs vanished. Now not only do I not have my tree-style tabs, Firefox will not create new tabs at all, and "restore session," or "restore all tabs" does nothing. FWIW, in safe mode, it will still give me standard abs at the top.

The Add-ons page offers me "find alternative add-ons," but will not download the alternative it offered me.

I've been a loyal Firefox user since the very first iteration of Firefox, but this has got me ready to bail and find another browser. Really pissed that it gave me no option to read up on what the problem was before killing all my tabs and refusing to allow me to even make new ones in the standard top tab mode without safe mode. I understand there being a problem with an add-on, but this sort of behavior is beyond the pale.

Anyone encountered this problem? Any solutions beyond changing browsers?

Please continue here: [/questions/1285975]
Using an Apple computer and Firefox 75.0 ... In in my toolbar (where the File, Edit, View options are), and I go to History > Recently Closed Tabs ... I see many recently opened tabs listed. How do I stop "Recently Closed Tabs" from accumulating? I want that list to always be clear.

Thank you.

I want to have my posts on Voy Forums to be about 4 to 5 inches wide. Now when I type a post, it fills the whole page and it's hard for people to follow. I need to set the default margin for posts. How can I do that without having to use the "Enter Key"?

MSN is my home page. I right click on links that I am interested in, choose "Open Link in a new tab" and they used to pop open on my tab line. Suddenly, when I upgraded to Firefox 63.0.1 it fails. It fails to open in a new window also. It just disappears.

Other web pages work just fine. So I am perplexed.

I often want to keep a tab open and go back to the search. It used to be that clicking on a search result opened a new tab,but now it replaces the search with that link so that I have to back out of it to get to the search and use history to see where I have been. This is a dealbreaker for me. There does not appear to be any way of restoring this behavior, even in about:config. Help

Would like a way to save the pinned and other tabs I have open in someplace, so when they get deleted I don't have to rummage thru last months History and dig out each one over again. A simple "Save this layout with date and name" somewhere would be great.

Updated to Win10, FF opens tab to a unsaved/unwanted legitimate website almost everytime I run it.

Since I updated to Windows 10, when I start FireFox about two-thirds of the time it will open with all my previously opened tabs but then open a new one to the Logitech website (http://www.logitech.com/en-gb). I do have two Logitech products on my PC and the only thing that has changed was the upgrade to Win10.

I have gone through the settings for FF and cannot find a reason why it should. There are no mysterious extensions or plugins.

I have gone through all the settings for Win10, particularly the Privacy ones and turned off everything that I do not want.

I was running an older version of FF but I have updated to the latest version but that has not fixed it.

When waking up my Macbook from sleep in the morning and Firefox has been left open since the day before I get the following behavior in my tab bar when resizing the firefox window: https://media.giphy.com/media/1n5GTrxJwnQmnmW6Ga/giphy.gif

At work I have multiple larger screens than the laptop screen itself.

The only way to get rid of it is to close all open tabs.

How can I remove the Extension (Yahoo ….lbar and New Tab) area from blocking typing space?

When I open up a new tab, sometimes the window is short and because the Extension is long I can’t type unless I expand the window. See image below. I don’t want to expand the window because I am using the side by side view ( one doc is half the screen and another doc is the other half of screen). How can I remove the Extension (Yahoo ….lbar and New Tab) so its not blocking the available typing space?

See image attached with screenshots
