I desperately miss a forward/backward button that allows me to surf back and forth across tabs in my entire survival history. The current system is completely overloaded and you can't find the last tab again.

Thanks

My tabs failed to open after a Firefox crash. There is nothing else than a 2 kb file in sessionstore backups. Is there anything else I can do, or is all lost? 1200 is a lot, and those tabs hold great value to me. So I'm kind of desperate right now. Any help would be immensely valued! (I will start using a session backup plugin for sure.)

For a long time this scenario has worked fine.... I have multiple tabs open, we'll just say A & B. In Tab A I click something I know will generate a pop up on this page in a while, but I manually swap to Tab B to start working on something else. When the pop up appears in Tab A, I can see the text of the tab go bold, and my view remains on Tab B so I can continue as I want.

But now suddenly, when I switch to Tab B, once that pop up appears in Tab A my view is forcibly changed to Tab A instantly. Pretty inconvenient since it interrupts what I'm doing in Tab B.

How can I go back to the original behavior?

I lost a session with many tabs.

Unfortunately "Restore previous session" was not available. I found a upgrade.jsonlz4 file with a date and time which would have the tabs on it. The size is larger than other ones so I figured this was the best option. I coppied this and pasted it into profiles. Renamed it sessionstore.jsonlz4... Renamed the sessionstore that was in there already to sessionstoreOLD Restarted firefox and when I click on restore previous session button I just get 2 blank tabs.

I then tried the other files which are significantly smaller but still no dice.

I tried the jefferson scrounger and it just gets stuck on "processing"

Any help would be much appreciated.

Please see screenshot of the files I had available to me and saved to a usb.

Recently having problems with very slow running and freezing so performed a refresh. Now I seem to have lost all my tabs that automatically opened when starting Firefox. Can I get them back from the Old Firefox Data folder that the Refresh process created on my Desktop or do I have to start again and remember all 78 tabs that used to be on my Home Page?

Pasting an IP into the address bar (from Excel) and pressing ENTER/Return from either the keypad or (sometimes) keys area changes the address bar to [Google search] (empty) - my IP that I've pasted is gone and the website from the IP is not open.

This is happening since the last update. I have not 88.0 version.

I don't have google as search engine! I have Foxy Gestures and uBlock Origin add-ons.

Hello there. I was curious if there was a way to lock individual tabs in my firefox browser. If there as an extension I am willing to do that as well. For example. I would like to lock individual tabs behind a password if my family were to come in my room you would not be able to access a certain tab without a password. I have discovered the "Primary Password" setting but I am looking to lock a tab not my login passwords. Thank you for the help!

The tabs on one of my Firefox windows got really small. Very small and very annoying when trying to click on one tab. I don't know how it happened, and I can't find a way to change them back. I did the usual stuff: rebooted the PC, closed Firefox and restarted, closed that one window and opened it again. No change in the situation. I didn't open, or close, any new tabs on that window. Like a little kid would say: "It was like that when I got here!"

I've seen the threads on minimum tab size and such, but I don't think that will help me, because the tabs in the other windows haven't changed.

I've attached some pictures to illustrate the relative sizes of the tabs. The one with larger tabs is from a crowded window, the one with smaller is from the window I'm complaining about. They were normal size, now they aren't. Help! Please?

I have noticed since the last update, when I click on a new tab in a window that is older and has about 6 or more, the new location will just spin and not connect. If I open a brand new window, or go to another browser, the location is fine and comes up quickly. I have cleared the cache but I do not want to do this everytime I get into an older browser window. Anyone else see this? This is very definitive and has just started happening.

I'm currently on firefox developer edition with the system theme. I've just now upgraded to latest version (v. 89.0b3 64 bit).

Everything is fine except the tab title of the current tab. The color is right but the shape is wrong. It should be rectangular but instead all four corners are rounded. Moreover, it's not connected to the rest of the page so there is a gap between the background color of the current tab (grey) and the background color of the page (black) making the whole thing look like it's floating around the browser space (see attached screenshot).

I've also noted that the top bar, the ones containing the title tabs and the main icons (close, enlarge, minimize) has become huge!

So my questions are:

- Is there a way to have rectangular tab titles again? If not possible through options, is there an add-on I can use? I search the add-ons page but the themes I found are for changing colors, they do nothing for the shape of the tabs. - How can I shrink the top bar?

Thanks
