When I open Firefox , multiple tabs open!! I have done everything from changing the pipe to %7C , scanning for malware , resetting my homepage to just one , and just about every other solution stated in your help community!! I had this problem once before , I did something and it worked! That was a few months ago so I don't remember what I did! It's like that Firefox is not remembering any changes that I make! And yes , I looked up solutions as to why that Firefox isn't changing my preferences or saving my changes also! And I have tried almost all of those solutions too! Nothing is working... thank you for your time...

When I open a new tab, I no longer get a blank page.

I am concerned that my computer may have a virus, so I will do a scan. How do I remove the above link and make it stop appearing when I open a new tab? I just want a blank page.

Firefox doesn't open tab in background with CMD

I know there is https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1071788 and https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1061460 but suggested `browser.tabs.loadDivertedInBackground` doesn't work for me - it simply opens everything in the background which is even more annoying.

At this point I would consider this a bug - I don't give a rat's nose about what magic javascript (pseudo-)developers but if I hold CMD button and make a click I want window to be opened in the background! (it seems that gmail is the main culprit, but probably most of google-produced FantasticCreation is affected by it…)

Is there a way to preserve/archive full page queues for tabs?

I don't know if it scales based on memory and how many tabs you've got open, but usually even with lots of tabs, the queue for how many pages you can navigate forward or backward for a given tab will go 30-40 deep before I start to lose the oldest pages from those queues. But if I end that session and restore it later, the tabs won't remember anything past the ten or so most recent pages. Anything beyond that is shed.

So, before I terminate the frozen session of Firefox I'm looking at, is there a file I can go pick out and back-up (like a sessionstore/recovery.js if I was looking to preserve certain sessions in general) that will allow me to restore the session without shedding a ton of pages I have queued up in various tabs?

Thanks.

I have google as my homepage, I have my email and my facebook as a pin in the toolbar and I have for quite some time opened other tabs to check school email and things on my online learning page for school. I was able to do this as recently as 4 hours ago, now I cannot open new tabs. Not sure what happened, I disabled add-ons like the post suggested and nothing.

This problem has already been mentioned in a previous thread, but alas due to the combative and impolite nature of the user who brought it up the thread has been closed. Nevertheless the issue persists, and probably could be considered a threat to privacy. There are 2 suggested settings that could circumvent the problem in the previous thread. Unfortunately they do not seem to work. The previous thread: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1046264

Would it be possible to suggest this problem be dealt with by the developers in a later version of Firefox?

I'm currently using Firefox Quantum 64.0.2. Basically, I'd like the X that lets me close a tab with just a click to stay visible. Currently, it's only visible on the active tab. Is there an add-on, a tweak in about:config, or some userChrome.css code available to keep that X visible all the time on all the tabs?

As a default, the new tabs screen should be blank, just like it always was.

I do not want a work around, or to have to mess with this.

I DO NOT want to see google, or any other product, showing up by default when i open a new tab.

This feels like the Microsoft strong arm tactics of the late 1990s. If I want to use google I will...BUT I DO NOT WANT IT FORCED ON ME!!! I trusted Firefox and allowed their updates and today they abused my trust by trying to shove products down my throat. I am furious.

Google seems to be the new evil empire, just like Microsoft used to be....

"MEET THE NEW BOSS, SAME AS THE OLD BOSS".

It looks like it is time to find a new browser, it looks like Firefox has sold out to Google, this is sad day.

I do not want a work around, I want new tabs and windows blank by default.

I hope this is fixed in the next day or so, otherwise I switch to the new browser my friend told me I should be using anyway.... JUST LIKE WHEN I LEFT INTERNET EXPLORER LONG AGO.... AND I NEVER LOOKED BACK and I have never opened IE again.

Please don't make me reboot my whole system and clean it all out.... I would rather stick with Firefox, but you need to fix this. I need to be able to trust you.

The "Firefox is already running, but is not responding" is really hostile and unhelpful. I don't want to mess with multiple Firefox profiles. I want to record the local file in the active Firefox history.

Just add the local file in new tab on the Firefox that is already active. Should work like click a bookmark in firefox, so why not treat this the same way? Needless to say, that this is what Chrome does.

Would be okay if Firefox pops up a prompt like "do you want to open the local file in a new tab or window?"

For some reason, when I started my computer this morning the tabs were all bright blue. When I click on another window and change focus, it reverts to the light gray that it should be, however going back resumes the problem. Starting in safe mode does not help, and turning off hardware acceleration does not help. I have restarted both the browser and my computer, and the problem resumes. The only thing that seems to change it, is when I change it to certain themes like space, who completely change the color of it. The default, dark, and light themes all are affected by this bright blue tab bar.

This is not so much a question, as an answer that some people desperately need.

Ever since Version 34, Firefox has done a superb job of restoring the tabs that the user has created, either on restarting Firefox (if that option is chosen) or on request.

The details of how to restore tabs are covered in Firefox's basic help online, and even how to deal with several crashes in a row (such as in an addon) ruin the normal backup file are also well explained.

However, today I accidentally pressed Alt+F4 twice on my poorly-designed keyboard and closed my main window, with 93 tabs, and another Firefox window as well. I'm not sure this is exactly what happened, but I lost all 93 of my tabs.

I read many of the postings in which people give various suggestions, but none worked. Every time I restored a version of the sessionstore.js file I saw the same lonely empty tab. Restoring prefs.js did nothing, and neither did making changes in the internal configuration constants.

I tried refreshing/resetting Firefox (which preserves bookmarks), but I still couldn't restore the tabs. It was now clear that the problem was in sessionstore.js (and all its backups) for sure.

I'm writing this for people who must restore their windows or tabs, and don't mind getting technical about it. That was my situation.

The solution was to realize that the sessionstore.js file contains JSON code, which is an efficient way to represent integers and strings arranged in a tree structure.

I figured there must be a JSON editor somewhere, and it turns out there is a great one available online, at www.jsoneditoronline.org . It can read a file on your computer, edit it, then save it back on your computer.

As soon as I viewed sessionstore.js in the editor, it was obvious how easy this was going to be. The top level of the tree is understandable. I simply grabbed the data representing the window with 93 tabs, and dragged it from the list of closed Firefox windows to the list of open windows. This automatically moved the history of each tab, and even the strings entered into forms.

After copying sessionstore.js back to the Firefox profile, I started Firefox one more time. The playing of Pandora signalled that my tabs were back and functioning once again.

Now, editing JSON code is not something that everyone is ready for. And your problem might not be reflected in the JSON tree so simply. But, for technical-minded people who don't want to lose their tabs or windows to a mistake or a crash, this technique can be just what's needed when everything else fails.

What is the point of clearing my history or having is disabled if recently closed tabs shows where I have been. This is crucial for someone who is having their account monitored by someone else. How do I delete recently closed tabs and is there anyway to disable that?
