Hi

Trying to make sync work the way I want. Initial question:

I've synced tabs between Windows desktop and Android. Now I would like to bookmark all those tabs in the desktop browser, without opening them first. I've found out how to view them in the side bar, but I see no option to bookmark all tabs.

It would be nice to have synced Tabs in the Library window and Options panel.

The best example of pinned tabs functionality on web browsers can be seen on what MacOS Safari is doing. Safari maintains pinned tabs across multiple windows and sessions, it also remembers the initial url used when the pin was placed, that means that when you open a new Safari session, the pinned tabs will always display the url you pinned and not the last page you visited on that tab. Firefox pinned tabs lack real world functionality, this point can be proven by seeing how many Firefox extensions for specific sites are on the extension browser. Please add this functionality, it could be one optional preference on the Settings page.

Problem I had two versions of Firefox open. Window "A" (my primary window) had many open tabs. Window "B" had only three tabs open. Like a knucklehead I accidentally closed the wrong window, "A". Upon restarting only the "B" version was there.

Possible Solution Two days ago I cloned my "C" drive as a backup. Although the Profile folder on the backup will only have 90+% of the tabs - I can gratefully live with that. I just need to know what files to copy over from the backup drive Profile folder to the messed up drive's Profile folder. I am hoping it will be that easy and I can copy the tab files and not the entire Profile folder. Thanks.

I know this is most likely a feature, but it's been annoying the hell out of me since I switched from Chrome and I don't know how to disable it. I have looked at multiple (~3) Reddit threads (two of which were archived) which gave me a total of 0 answers, I've looked at other forums, and I've found, get this, nothing. It's so annoying when for whatever reason, my music gets paused and then it's not at the volume I need it to be at, so I turn it up and then almost immediately turn it back down because of the audio fading. All I want is to know how to disable this, PLEASE.

I have a large number of tabs open. I have tried closing a lot of them but whenever Firefox restarts, it reopens ALL the old tabs, including the ones which I closed individually during the previous session, ie it ognores the fact that I specifically closed some of the in the previous session. I need to reduce the number of tabs substantially but Firefox is preventing this. I am NOT a technical expert. Thanks to anyone who can help.

Upon restart, Firefox has kept dropping (not loading) hundreds of tabs. 555 tabs, as also listed in my sessionstore, but after loading is finished, only about 330 is actually loaded of those. Previously, there have been similar issues with different sets, and loading the full set over, and over again, sometimes the full set or very close to the full set is loaded, indeed. But it is clear that there's a bug or at least a very inconsistent behaviour in the code somewhere. How can this be propely troubleshot and fixed? Happy to help. Thanks.

When I snap Firefox to one side of the screen to fill half my monitor, I'm presented with so much padding that there is in fact more screen estate reserved for nothing than there is for tabs. Is this supposed to be normal behavior? I'm using a 4K laptop monitor with 300% scaling, which gave me no wasted space issues in the past.

Mozilla makes it so difficult to use its features- for example I find nothing that says Restore Previous Session. I went to the stuck of three lines at the top right and went to hisotry, click on recently closed window and absolutely nothing came back.

Mozilla people lies too much and cares nothing about good communications, awesome instructions  and technical support.

Lets say I have several Tabs loading endless . I want to select those multiple Tabs and stop them to load simultaneously and not one by one. Just like in the operation "Reload Tans" I want something similar for stopping the loading.

Lets say, I select multiple Tabs (Ctrl + Select or Shift + Select) and if I press also Esc they should all Stop from loading.

How can I do that ?

Normally, when I have the command key held down when clicking on a link, that link will open in a new tab. But some websites, for some inexplicable reasons, are programmed to force users to stay in the same window nevertheless.

So how can I force the link to immediately open in a new tab when I have the command key held down, instead of having to resort to holding down the control key, clicking the link, and then having to click on “Open Link in New Tab”?

Hello,

Firefox is currently opening external link in the current tab, without any possibility to go back. For example, whenever I follow a link from a program (e.g. a pdf reader), when I press F1 in LibreOffice etc., the page being opened in Firefox will replace the current tab (and the history for that tab will be disabled).

'This is a problem for several reasons': 1. One can't go back to the current since it's gone from the "go back one page". 2. If I am doing something in the tab, everything will automatically disappear, without any warning. 3. Since the current page will disappear completely, it can be tricky to know what tab content is being "overwritten".

Thank you in advance! Regards

A couple days ago, late, I accidentally closed my main Firefox window before a little window that I'd forgotten was there - and all my 76 tabs disappeared. 1st thing yesterday I tried - 3bar / history / recently closed tabs - but the only thing in there was the one tab from the small window. Urg! I tried that and - 3bar / history / manage - where I could see my tabs but could only restore 1 at a time - not good for 76 tabs. I read a bunch of different questions about this same issue, and tried the suggestions, including some app called scrounge, but none of these restored my tabs. Help!!!!

Hi!

In my firefox 105.0.3 I am logged in to my Office365 Outlook webmail. I have also configured firefox to handle mailto so that it opens outlook.office.com webmail. When I click a mailto link on a homepage it opens up a new mail to compose but in the same tab. So my question is, is it possible to make firefox open the compose page in a new tab?

Thanks
