I used to be that if you clicked a link and "Opened in a New Tab" that this child tab would appear to the right of all existing tabs.

In the later versions of FF, these child tabs are inserted directly after the parent tab that created them.

This may make logic sense to some people but, maybe because I'm dyslexic, position is critical and all my existing tabs beyond this child have just been moved up one place, which I find very confusing.

I often Open a New Tab for temporary tangents, so I don't lose my place in an existing page, but this means that my primary tabs are tromboning right and left as I open/close.

Is there a parameter that I can change in Config to set the behaviour back to adding new tabs to the end of the list?

When I have multiple pages open and navigate off the page and work on something else using another program, When I hove over the Firefox icon in my Windows 10 taskbar it shows multiple pages in the fly out menu. What I'd rather have is simply a return to all the full screen tabs. The issue is intermittent, due to my newness to Firefox. Is there some way to change this?

I have chosen to delete cookies and site data when Firefox is closed. However I want to make certain exceptions. That normally works fine.

However that are certain sites that are listed in the "Managing Data"-list that are not proceeded with a "https://www...", a typical example is "google.com".

I have not been able to add such sites to the exceptions.

If I just write "google.com" in "Address of website", and choose Allow, the system automatically adds a "https://www.../ in front so the exceptions list looks like . . https://www. google.com . and the cookies listed as google.com are deleted when I close Firefox.

How can I add such sites to the exceptions?

Yesterday I updated Firefox to version 82 and now it won't start up, it seems to immediately crash. There is no error report dialog box. This is on Windows 10 with the latest patches. I tried restarting the computer, installing Firefox 82 32-bit and 64-bit versions, uninstall + reinstall, and safe mode, but none of these work. (This is on a corporate laptop so I have a limited ability to change internal system settings.) The Windows error from the event log is:

Faulting application name: firefox.exe, version: 82.0.0.7592, time stamp: 0x5f8738dd Faulting module name: ntdll.dll, version: 10.0.17763.1432, time stamp: 0x80224f6f Exception code: 0xc0000409 Fault offset: 0x00000000000a4740 Faulting process id: 0x2998 Faulting application start time: 0x01d6a816d74b6186 Faulting application path: C:\Program Files (x86)\Mozilla Firefox\firefox.exe Faulting module path: C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM32\ntdll.dll Report Id: 5ed88218-3f48-47be-8c6c-aa5af98c902b Faulting package full name: Faulting package-relative application ID:

I installed Firefox 81 and that works fine, but it constantly tries to updated and every time I restart it crashes again. It also seems like I can't access my saved logins/passwords in this older Firefox version because it's using a different profile. I'm trying to avoid updating Firefox on my other Windows 10 computer in case it fails in the same way.

Please let me know if you need any more information. Thank you.

How do I contact Mozilla Firefox to ask if I'm able to access to my Firefox profile on their cloud server?

Windows 10 would not update so I contacted Microsoft Support and a technician spent two days trying to various methods to get the updates installed on my computer. After several failed attempts it was determined a Windows "reset" was needed. The reset stated it would uninstall apps but save user data. However, it appears the reset uninstalled and wiped my profile off the computer.

I've already asked a previous question using the Mozilla Firefox support section and verified the profile is in fact gone. No backups are available to rollback using Firefox and the backup profiles in the "Windows.old" and "Windows.old(1)" both contain saved profiles from after the reset.

It sounds like my last option is contacting Mozilla directly to verify my account information and see if they can access my profile on their cloud server?

So how does someone do that? Thanks

For some time now, Firefox has been incorrectly identifying the type for a large percentage of JPG images, and saving them with the PNG suffix instead. Graphics programs cannot open such mislabelled files, requiring me to manually find and rename such files to give them the proper .JPG suffix to match their file type.

This is far beyond a minor issue, and needs to be addressed immediately. Please. Any suggestions on how to deal with this?
