"Don't load tabs until selected" ... Where is the setting so that it affects the tabs when I click "Open all in tabs" from History?

I am trying to reload all the tabs from history, it's a couple thousand. I am not concerned about system RAM I have 16GB. I know it will be slow, I'm not looking for any warnings or questions about why I have to reload that many tabs or how to work with the restore.bak sessionstore files.

The question I need an answer to is, "What setting do I need to change so that when I reload multiple tabs, it doesn't say "connecting" on all of them even though I have already selected "Don't load tabs until selected"

Seems that my Video Download Helper as well as Download Flash and Video add-ons on my PC have suddenly stopped working this past week (Jan 2014). Did Youtube suddenly block downloading of *ALL* their videos? I knew they stopped VEVO vids from downloading a while back, but the regular FLV and MP4 videos just all of a sudden stopped appearing in VDH's and DF&V's menus about a week ago. The icons for each of them up in my toolbar also stopped lighting up when the videos play on screen, like neither program can detect the videos anymore to download them. I looked thru the topics listed here on this help site as well as Google Search and there's nothing about Youtube/Google blocking the downloads, only some mention that Youtube might be about to institute a system where you have to start paying to save their videos a year ago. Does anyone know for sure? I'm using FF 26 with the latest versions of both downloading programs (installed back in November). Videos were downloading fine until about a week ago. Thanks.

How to completely disable Tab Groups?

I don't use Tab Groups and have no need for them. I didn't even know they existed until my tabs starting disappearing.

When I close all tabs I get to the Tabs Group screen. Pressing the Tab Group button doesn't work at all. There I find my missing tabs. When I try to open them they don't open. They start to expand to full screen, but never get there. They just return to the small Tab Group size. I have to close Firefox and start all over.

I have no idea what causes my tabs to go into a new Tab Group, but it happens a lot. When I hit the '+' ("Open a new tab" button) sometimes the new tab is now my only tab and all my other tabs are in a Tab Group that I cannot access. It also happens when I switch to a different tab. I click on the tab and suddenly its my only tab. All others have been grouped and lost since my tab groups will not open.

I would like to completely disable Tab Groups. It's a feature that only causes me frustration.

I recently downloaded PowerISO and it changed my search engine to Bing. It did not install any program or plugin that I can plainly see. When I go to control panel and "Uninstall or change programs" I don't see a Bing, nor do I see a plug-in or extension on Firefox. I was able to change my homepage back to Google, but now Firefox always searches through Bing whenever I open a new tab.

So, my main tab works fine, but all my tabs automatically search through Bing. How do I fix this?

Today, I wanted to view a model on thingiverse using their thingyview. This javascript 30 viewer uses webGL. I remember using it in former firefox versions quite often.

Now, it won't work. It works in Google Chrome and Opera with no problem, so I assume this must be problem of browser configuration, not drivers.

When I open Firefox there is a box in the middle of the screen where I usually place items that I want to look up. Previously, if I put an item or name in this box and clicked it, numerous websites would appear. Now nothing happens. If I go to the address bar and put in a valid website address, nothing happens. However, the websites on my Bookmarks still function Please help. I also note that when I access the search engine box, there are no search engines listed. My wife is a Facebook person, and I don't know if this somehow has changed by Firefox settings.

Trying to sync FF to new computer (from Windows 7 to 8.1). I get the 12 dig code from the new computer and enter it on the old one. Nothing happens. Step 5 in the Sync instructions ("When the code is accepted you will see a Device Connected message and your device will immediately begin syncing. Click Finish to close the setup window. ") doesn't happen. I do not see "Device connected". All that happens is that the box returns to the Welcome! text and asks if I want to set up an account or if I have one already.

On the new computer, nothing changes. The "Next" button under the generated code does not light up.
