I use a MacBook Pro with MacOS 10.11 and the latest version of FireFox (72.0.2) and I'm unable to figure out how to close multiple tabs at once.

With past versions of FireFox, I could bring up the context menu (by holding down the control key and clicking on a tab) and choose "Close other tabs" or choose "Close tabs to the right of this tab." I could also choose either option from the File menu, but all those options seem to be gone now and I can't even bring up the Context menu any more. Maybe if I had a two-button mouse, I could click the right button, but you should be able to do the same thing with the standard trackpad that comes with the MacBook. I'm sorry.

Anyway, how do you close multiple tabs?

Thank you so much.

Is there a keyboard shortcut to access the menu button and add-on extensions button (top right of toolbar, not the menu bar)?

locking as a duplicate of https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1250243

I'd like to know if there is a shortcut to toggle the "3-bar" menu button and extension button section of the toolbar. F6 only selects the address bar. Then hitting Tab only moves over to the search bar, and hitting Tab again just toggles through page elements. For instance, in Google Chrome what I am trying to accomplish would be done by hitting Alt and then left-arrow until I've selected the extension button I am looking for (or by hitting F6 and "tabbing" to the right to get to the toolbar buttons). In Mozilla, the only way I find I can access the extension functions or the "3-bar" button is with the mouse.

Hello,

Starting Firefox and going to https://www.israelweather.co.il/week.asp - I get the "Insecure Connection" page. If, however, I go to a different site and then go to https://www.israelweather.co.il/week.asp - Firefox displays the page.

Any explanation or a way to solve the issue?

Thank you.

All my life I could enter a website from the address bar simply by typing the name, and then hitting Command Enter (or CTRL Enter on Windows) on the keyboard, instead of typing the full extension .com. Ever since the recent update, it is not possible anymore! If I hit CMND Enter, it just takes me to google search results, as if I just hit Enter. I don't know if it's the same on Windows. this is soooo annnoying to have to change decades of habits!

this problem applies to new websites – not the ones that the search bar suggest, because suggestions already include full addresses.

is there a new shortcuts I am missing, or is it a bug with the new version?

The about:config trick doesn't work on Drudge. Chrome has an add-on that blocks autorefresh, but it doesn't work on Drudge, either. Apparently Drudge is hell-bent on autorefreshing his page every thirty seconds whether you like it or not. Has anyone figured out how to make Drudge stop autorefreshing? I used to use NoScript, but since Quantum, NoScript has been transformed into a monstrosity I can't make head or tail of.

Apparently I need to be a rocket scientist these days to make my browser do AS I WANT. WHERE IS THE DONT FOLLOW REDIRECTS BUTTON FROM A MILLION VERSIONS AGO?? TELL ME WHERE IS IT??? ITS CALLED A OPTION FOR A REASON; BECAUSE ITS AN OPTION; YOU CAN CHOOSE WETHER YOU WANT TO OR NOT ITS UP TO YOU! IF YOU DONT LIKE IT STAY AWAY FROM IT THATS ALL YOU NEED TO ; YOU DONT NEED TO REMOVE ONE FUCNTION AFTER ANOTHER. Now tell me how to make your BROWSER (cause thats what it is at this point when you keep doing EXACTLY THE SAME AS THE CORPORATE DO WITH THEIR BROWSERS). Let me repeat that, now tell me where I stop your browser from listening to all you OUT THERE and start listening to me. WAS THAT A GOOD QUESTION? DID I POST THAT CORRECTLY? I remember when firefox used to be at the frontier...

Firefox Quantum flashes white screen when I revisit idle tabs. This white screen has a loading disc (or flower) at its center. It seems that Mozilla has given Firefox a new "tab discarding" function like Chrome. I wish to disable it. If anyone knows what do I have to find and set to "false" on "about:config", let me know!

Closing as duplicate of /questions/1160066 ~J99

I sometimes go to Kayak to look at flights and in my Firefox browser whenever I start typing the address it then comes up automatically 'www.kayak.com'. Except the problem is that Kayak changed their default homepage to hotel related searches a year or so ago and every time I go to Kayak I have to click on flights to get to the page I initially wanted. So I just want to know how can I edit the auto-fill suggestion to show 'www.kayak.com/flights' instead of the way it currently shows 'www.kayak.com'.

I had a bookmark saved (https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/925973) that explained how to move the tabs toolbar back to the traditional location below the bookmarks toolbar. it said:

You can change this preference manually until someone figures out where it has moved in the UI.

(1) In a new tab, type or paste about:config in the address bar and press Enter. Click the button promising to be careful.

(2) In the filter box, type or paste tabs and pause while the list is filtered

(3) Double-click browser.tabs.onTop to switch it from true to false to move the tabs below the toolbars.

Now, browser.tabs.onTop no longer appears in the list.

How does one go about this operation now? I am much more comfortable with the tabs immediately above the window associated with the tab than the newer default of the tabs toolbar (in my case) 3 rows up from the window. I have the navigation, menu, and bookmarks all turned on.

Questions in the main support forum are only indexed by Google if they are marked solved. Questions that are deleted or marked as spam will not be re-indexed by Google. Questions that are closed for any reason by a Mod or Admins I believe fall in to the latter category.

Rather than try to look up the documentation or try to get my head around code it is far simpler to test this live on the forum thus this question. LMGTFY is a fairly rare target string. I will post ths question mark t solved then immediatly close it.

Question posted by a Moderator for test purposes.

I anticipate it will not show up on Google. (I will probably unlock the question later.) I can even test that by using LMGTFY. Note unless you explain exacctly how &/oir or provide the link to the relevant hit from the results of the search. The initialism LMGTFY may be considered offensive: rather like Read The Fine Manual.


Lets also try out the internal searches


N.B. If anyone has good reason to use LMGFY links for a helpful purpose all well and good but please use the full link not the shortened link so that it is clear what you are searching for. Please do not port obfuscated or shortened links on the forum (With the exception, maybe on the Android forum of shortened links copied from Mozilla documentation)
