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 :)

Hello,

I urgently ;-) need a shortcut to switch between open browser windows. It seems to be one of the basic ones, but is nowhere to be found.

Solutions using Tilde do not work for me becuse it's not available on my Apple keyboard.

Why not use Command +< or Command + > respectively, like many other apps do?

And why not at least let me configure that in a simple fashion myself???

Thanks for any solution!

Apparently, Firefox 71 for Mac no longer allows tabs be dragged within a browser window to reposition them. Is there a way to fix this? Am I missing a setting?

Formerly, one could reorder tabs in a Firefox browser window by clicking and dragging. One could also click and hold a tab and move it to create a new window or take a tab from one window, click and drag it to another window. I am no longer able to do this on my Mac laptop, after updating to Firefox 71. I can't seem to find a special setting in Firefox 71. Is there one or a way to allow tab movement? Or do I need to revert to the previous version of Firefox?

Hello!

I have firefox 74 (64-bit), after one of the bluescreens that sometimes happen for my laptop, my Firefox tabs became very, very transparent.

This is it how it looked before: https://puu.sh/Fnzh1/b606c91b73.jpg

This is how it looks now: https://puu.sh/FLYyk/63fb3fab0e.jpg

As you can see, in both cases I have 3 tabs opened and some other firefox window below. However, opacity is very high in the first case and you almost don't see anything else aside of the 3 tabs opened, while in the current situation is like non-existent and if not the difference in the size of the tabs, you wouldn't even notice that these tabs are not from the current window, but from some other window below!

Can someone help me understand how it happened and, more importantly, how to fix this problem? I tried searching options for things like 'transparency', 'transparent', 'opacity', etc., but couldn't find anything :-(

Hi, I have a pinned tab on my firefox session. And every time I open Firefox it's there. But now I don' want it there, I've unpinned the tab and close it. But it keeps appearing pinned every time I open Firefox. My configuration for the start page is: Start of Firefox (Default) (or something similar, I don't have it in English) And my session is shared between my home and work computers (maybe this can be related) The pinned tab is open.spotify.com that opens another firefox window to log in. I haven't had any problem with other pinned tabs.

Thanks and sorry for my english.

so after the new firefox update all of my settings were changed back to default, and I often use alot of different windows and tabs and leave them open, and then some times close them to speed things up and so the computer does not crash or over heat do to running multiple windows at once, then if i need to find a tab from another window i closed, i will go into the history panel and reopen that closed window that contained the tab or set of tabs.

I had my firefox set so it would hold on to the last 10 or so closed windows, but after the update it got set back to default so it only saved the last 3, and last night (7/1/19) it erased one of my closed windows (i had 4 windows open and then closed one) after i closed another window and then that window took the place of it and the other was just erased. i looked around and could not find an answer to solve this issue. i found one question that was similar and they were told to use 

'jeffersonscher'

i used that with all of my different json files and json update files and all the tabs were and sessions were showing up but i could not find any of the tabs from that one window that was closed and erased 

is there a way to reopen or find that closed window that got erased?
