Since probably FF94, i can't remove single page windows (like popup) by turning them into a tab anymore.

Before when a popup window appeared i moved it to the already opened main window to turn it into tab to not have ton of "recently closed windows". But since FF94, when i move a window, instead of disappear after become a tab, firefox only duplicate the webpage (i have the new tab and the identical webpage window). Until now the only way i have to remove the annoying windows is to kill firefox app with windows task manager and uncheck them in the tab recovery.

How i can have firefox able to really move windows into tab like before instead of copy them? Or have a way to permanently delete unwanted windows i don't use anymore in the "recently closed windows" list without killing the task.

Also moving tab from a firefox window to another work normally (no duplicate), the problem occurs only when FF windows has a single tab.

I restored Firefox, which left a folder named "Old Firefox Data" on my desktop.

How do I delete it? I can't!

Even if I remove the "read only" property and remove the "deny delete" setting, the damn thing won't go away!

How.Do.I.Kill.The.Folder???

I don't seem to remember Chrome or even Edge making the decision to clutter my Desktop indefinitely for no reason at all...

A very important parent Bookmark folder disappeared again!

When I do a Search, I can find Bookmarks that are in the Parent Bookmarks folder but as I have reported before, the HUGE issue is that there is NO way to find where the parent Bookmarks folder or the Bookmarks in the parent Bookmarks folder using the Search function! How can I find the parent Bookmarks folder and where the Bookmarks are that were in the Parent Bookmarks folder?

I have added many Bookmarks since yesterday so I do not want to try to do a Restore.

I need to find the Bookmarks that disappeared soon.

HI,

Using Firefox ver 96.0.2 (64 bit) Windows 8.1

When starting up Firefox it suddenly has started to search for previous sites but cannot find them. Always before it always started up with selected homepage. I have checked my settings and the only one that from my understanding could have any effect on this is

- Open previous windows and tabs

which I have not selected.

On another computer with windows 11 it works fine.

Best Regards Marten

6 hours ago, I shut down my Windows 10 laptop to buy lunch.

1 hour later, I turned on my laptop. But then Firefox stopped loading any tabs. My Internet — my other browsers like Chrome and Edge — have all been working perfectly. See below — Firefox in "Troubleshoot Mode" works perfectly!

Therefore, is one of my ≥ 30 Add Ons the glitch? How can I most productively suss out which Add On, without disabling each of my ≥ 30 Add Ons singly?

When I open Firefox, I'm getting ** 12 ** instances of Firefox opening up and spamming the hell out of my hard drive (even slowing down other processes), even without opening a page (I have mine set to not open any pages on loading Firefox). This is annoying and intolerable. I have looked around to find a workaround, but the only post was from last year, and gives instructions to turn off recommended settings, then says to set Firefox instances to 1, where there is no way to do that in that section on the version I'm running. So, how do I fix this? I want the hard drive spamming stopped.

Ever since I updated to Firefox 96, I have been receiving the error message "Hmm. We’re having trouble finding that site." at times. Refreshing does help. This did not seem to happen with Firefox 95. I am currently on Firefox 96.0.2. I tried restarting the computer, tried refreshing Firefox, tried disabling hardware acceleration, etc., and the issue still persists.
