I went to settings and set firefox to open links in a NEW TAB instead of a new window, but it still opens links in a new window. I did a search on google and when I click on the link for the website to see the information it is still opening in a new window. How can I fix this so I don't have a lot of new windows. It's irritating to have to close all those stinking windows just to get back to my original window. I just want the links I click on to open in a new tab.

MacOS: Change the Shortcut for Next and Previous Tab

Hi,

I know this is been asked and discussed multiple times over the years. But the current [CTRL+TAB] and [CTRL+PGUP/PGDOWN] are less that optimum for people who use Mac's.

We like to use CMD+[CTRL/SHIFT]+Left/Right. If there would a menu item for the two operations then it's quite easily do do via keyboard settings. But as that has been removed we're stuck with something which doesn't really work on notebook as there aren't any PGUP/PGDOWN keys ....

Please make it programmable or add the "Next Tab..." and "Previous Tab..." back to the Window menu.

Cheers.

With the latest upgrade the tabs look nasty and just icon with name of the tab - no border. How can I get them looking like they used to look prior to the upgrade, please?

Another question is why after an upgrade do my settings for a new tab to open automatically to Google with the cursor in the search box get removed. Is there a way to get it right and save it so it remains with each upgrade. I don't like searching in the address bar.

Yesterday, Firefox updated and moved my tabs bar up to the top of the window, and got rid of the button that lets me move them to the bottom. They used to be below the bookmarks toolbar which is where I like them.

Last time I could right-click the Tabs bar and there was a button called 'Tabs on top' which I could disable, and the tabs moved back to the bottom. But they got rid of that and I can't find where it's gone.

I use FireFox 88.0.1. in Windows 10 (x64, ja-jp), I set it up to open last sessions.

But It doesn't work sometimes.

When FireFox is already closed, and I open files which click URLs in other programs (like a Discord, MS Teams etc.), then FireFox open them and It doesn't restore last session.

So, FireFox was closed -> I reopen the FireFox normally ( OK )

But, FireFox was closed -> I click some URLs or open Files(they are connected with FireFox) -> FireFox REOPEN ( AND MY LAST SESSION GOING SOME WHERE!! )

I don't know this problem occured from me (such as mistake of settings).

I'm wating for your kindly answer.

Hello,

When I go full screen mode on firefox (version: 87.0 64 bit) and mac (version: Big Sur 11.2.3) both the top and bottom apple tool bars go away (which I want to happen) but the firefox search bar and bookmarks are still there on top.

When I go FS on my windows computer, the full web page displays and then when I hover op top the firefox search bar pops down until I hover off it, this is what I want to happen on my mac!

See attachment of firefox search bar staying while in FS mode and please help! Thank you for your time.

Hi. I would like to restore my previous session when I open Firefox (last version of the browser installed). The option is turned on, but nothing happens when I close the browser and I open it again. The support says I should see "Restore previous session" after "New Private Window", but this option is not there. In the history, the list of recently closed tabs is always empty, there are juste one or two links in the recently closed windows (it seems to be a random list). Can someone help me ? I don't understand why it doesn't work. Thank you :)
