I found when pressing Alt+Enter in the address bar, the link will open in a new tab, which is nice. But if I press Alt+click a link in the page, the link does not open in a new tab (while Shift+click can open in a new window as expected). I'm not sure if it's a problem, but I hope Firefox can have this feature so that opening a link in a new tab can be more convenient.

Besides, in some browsers, drag a link to a nearby place will open in a new tab. However, in Firefox, this manner does not work, unless I drag a link to the tabs bar.

Tab cannot be fixed to the left edge. Pinning a tab locks it to the left edge of the tab bar, but it no longer holds. A <mark is displayed at the left end of the tab bar. I can't identify if it's due to firefox settings or add-ons. The version of firefox is 87.0 windows10 64bit I got into this situation after restarting firefox.

I really like my new window URL, but I only need to see it once a day. The blank page new tab is great for someone like me whose attention gets hijacked by interesting Pocket articles.

I have a link on my toolbar to a text scratchpad URL: data:text/html, <html contenteditable>

It's great for grocery lists, YouTube comments, etc. and if I really need to save the text it's no problem.

Is there a way to turn that URL into the default new tab URL?

hi there!

is there a way to open a firefox tab in a new private window? it's something i'm wishing for all the time!

(google posts from many years ago state a way to select this option from the menu, but if it worked it no longer is in the menu.)

my reason for needing this so often is that i have many add-ons that block trackers, ads, etc, which are disabled for my private mode. so if a tab won't load, it would be the easiest way by far to get it to do so!

thanks for any help!

When I was voice chatting with my friends, I wanted to screen share a tab in firefox, but I couldn't. It didn't say anything, the only thing I could share was the voice chatting app and my recording software. I was also going to screen share my game so I can show it to my school friends but it didn't show the game I wanted to play. I was also in a tutor and was about to share a tab but there was no tab share option. And yes, i did set permission to share my screen. I don't know how to fix this.

Hello! Since I do not see any options for submitting an enhancement request, I thought I'd do it in this forum. Maybe there is an answer already out there that could get answered here? I am a software business analyst, who specializes in usability and process management. Being one of the older users of Firefox (as are many of us 'old folks') ;), I would like to ask if there is any possibility/functionality of being able to change the tab appearance once you've installed a theme extension? Depending upon the theme installed, the tabs are translucent. This is understandable based on being able to see more of the theme, BUT... For those of us who are older, sight impaired, etc., Often it is difficult to see the words on the tab and which one is highlighted. I for one, usually have multiple tabs open relative to my work. It would be so helpful to be able to choose an option to change the tabs to:

  1. 1 Using opaque scale/slider bar (to increase or decrease), or just an option to make the tabs opaque.
  2. 2 Change the font to bold if desired.
  3. 3 Change the color of the text to white or black.
  4. 4 Make the current tab a little more pronounced (i.e., highlighted)

Thank you for your consideration of these development enhancements which would help many users. Should there be an answer out there already of how to accomplish at least one of these requests, (of which I will apologize for I cannot find any info or extension yet), I would be most grateful for your assistance with these options. Cheers!

I have several tabs. Last I closed a bunch I was over 200, so it's a bit annoying when I start Firefox to do something, and randomly it'll start up the tab(s) of Facebook I have among the many.

It doesn't matter what tab I was on when I exited Firefox last, Facebook will be loaded without fail. I tried it several times with different sites, and I never exited with Firefox being the page I was on last.

Often my tab list on the top will be scrolled over (not by me, it happens when the Facebook tab loads) and I will have to scroll back to find the currently open page's tab. (The loaded page, whatever I was on last is on the screen, no problem with that.)

Anyway, I could list several reasons why this is a nuisance, but the thing is: I do not know why this is happening, it is disruptive, so I wish to understand the problem and stop it from happening.

This has persisted throughout several versions of Firefox, so I do not think it has to do with updates, but I do have the Facebook Container and F.B Purity addons.

Hi,

I am using custom links ('thunderlink://...') with a registered handler. This always worked well and still does.

However it seems like the newest releases of firefox (not sure when exactly it started) open a new tab, with just the link in the address bar, before calling the handler. Which leaves me with unnecessary, blank, open tabs.

Any idea how I can suppress the opening on a new tab on such custom link?

Thanks!

The use-case where this happens most for me is when I want to open two different email inboxes at once:

  • I type "mail" into the search bar in a new tab.
  • The autocomplete suggestions show from my history the two email inboxes.
  • I middle click one of the links
  • Firefox opens the link in a new tab, I am still focused on the new tab (this is wanted), but the search bar is cleared, and I must now type "mail" again to bring up the suggestions again.

The previous browser I used did not do this, and coming over from that browser it makes it quite annoying to have to type "mail" twice. I do not want to put the links into bookmarks and access them that way.

Today I updated my Firefox Developer Edition to version 89.0b2 and now I just can not look at this browser anymore, "Inspired new tab design" is taking too much space and now became largest and at the same time least information-dense panel in my entire desktop! I searched around the web for a bit in hopes that I will find a theme or an add-on that will revert this particular change but no luck. I really want to revert to old UI look (at least tabs bar), there should be default theme or option to get back to old style. After some investigation I found userChrome.css but don't really want to install it (maybe this is actually the way of doing this kind of styling). Please help me revert UI design to old one.

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.
