There's supposed to be a "Search Tabs" button in the title bar:

https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/search-open-tabs-firefox

This button doesn't show up for me, see screenshot. Do I need more tabs? I tried opening about 30 of them, but the button still isn't there.

Hello, I didn't open Firefox from the 8th, I closed it normally as I always do with no worries since Firefox always launches with all my tabs+bookmarks saved and never remove cronology by itself. Guess updating must have done something, so I've read on the net and then here about some probable solutions, did find some files like recovery.jsonlz4 and .baklz4 along previous.jsonlz4 and sessionstore.jsonlz4 and saved them up in another folder, putting them back in the profile I've had on Firefox, but that didn't seem to have helped at all, Firefox still launches with nothing on and I don't know what to do anymore, so I've registered to ask for support here. Thanks.

Hi. This just started happening, I think after the latest update (Firefox 87). When doing a Google or other search clicking a link used to open a new tab, leaving the original tab intact. Now clicking the link opens in the current tab. If I hold down 'ctrl' the link opens in a new tab. In Options I have 'Open links in new tabs....' checked. I also set 'browser.tabs.loadBookmarksInTabs' to true. I have turned off all add-ins and nothing has an affect. Any suggestions?

I just recently upgraded to Firefox 87.0 (64-bit) for Windows 7. Before the upgrade if I wheel clicked on a link it would open up in a new tab. Now it does absolutely nothing. I've even tried holding the wheel click for 10 seconds, still nothing.

I have verified the following settings in about:config; browser.tabs.opentabfor.middleclick=true middlemouse.contentLoadURL=false middlemouse.paste=false middlemouse.scrollbarPosition=false

When I was doing a search for related questions to this problem I found a user 3 years ago had a similar problem, and that they had an addition setting: middlemouse.openNewWindow=true. This setting no longer seems to be there. I have no idea if this setting was recently removed, and is the source of my problem, or if it was removed a while ago and my problem is the result of some other change. I have restarted Firefox twice, and even rebooted my laptop, in an effort to fix this problem. Nothing has worked. Depending on what I am doing I rely on using the wheel click HEAVILY, as it is much simpler to close a tab then to hit the back button 4, 10, or 20 times to return to where I started, or if I'm trying to keep track of what links I've followed from doing a search without having to re-do the search and hope I get the exact same results (with Google I never do).

At this time I am already heavily inclined to just return to the previous version of Firefox, despite how much of a pain that will be, however this is a recently released update, so I feel I should give the devs a chance to fix any new bugs from the update. That, and I won't have the time around work for several days, probably over a week, which makes it more practical to give the devs a chance to release a patch that fixes the problem.

I have open half a dozen or so tabs related to one subject. I would like to put them all into one "super tab", such that only the super tab shows as an open tab. Then, by clicking on that tab, it would show the tabs within it, any one or more of which could be selected. Is this possible, and if so how is it done? Perhaps there's an add-on or extension that would do this.

I have already created a multi-tab bookmark that sorta, maybe accomplishes the same thing. But it's not as convenient as what I envision as described above.

Thanks for any advice or words of wisdom.

When I mistakenly delete a tab I would like to me able to restore it. If it does not already exist, it could be added to the Firefox menu. When I have many tabs open, sometimes I would like to open yet another tab and I mistakenly delete the last tab rather than clicking on +. This might be because the + is not bright white and seems a bit gray, or because I have so many tabs open the delete sign X does not appear.

I have selected the option "Restore previous session". Normally, it works fine, but if the last Firefox window closed before was in private mode, it doesn't - instead I get the last sessions of this private window. I'm not quite sure, but I think this behavior was different (= Firefox restores always the tabs from the last non-private window) before one of the last updates.

I recently "refreshed" Firefox to solve a printer problem and that worked. But, now I'm having a problem with tabs. Prior to the "refresh" I kept 8-9 tabs always open and they ran across the top of the page with a "new tab" at the right end of the string. I could open a new tab, keep it open, and close it. Now, the new tab is at the upper left and when I search for a new site and open a tab that tab stays at the upper left. When I close that new tab, Firefox closes and I have to start all over again. My standard pages load but I must sign in to every page.

What do I need to do to get the "new tab" to the right of my standard string of tabs and be able to close that new tab without Firefox closing down and forcing me start all over.

I'm running Win 10 on an HP laptop.

Thanks

When more than one tab is open, to close ALL tabs by clicking the "X" in the far upper right, a pop-up alert warns and asks if the closure is intentional. A constant annoyance is when I mistakenly close the WRONG tab when multiple tabs are open. Why is there no similar alert to confirm my choice to close a single tab? It would save me time and frustration.

Hello dear support! I would like to immediately warn you that I used Yandex translator to write the text, so there may be grammatical errors :) I've been using Firefox for a very long time and I'm happy with everything. But recently I have encountered the" problem " of opening tabs, it has always been there, but I am not comfortable using it.When you search for material intensively by links, when you open any link on the search page by clicking the left mouse button or using the right mouse button "open link in a new tab", in both cases a new tab opens, it throws there and you have to move back to the search page from the opened tab and open another link that I also need, which is inconvenient. In this regard, a question. Is there a setting in the browser so that by clicking on the right button I do not go to an open tab, but it opens itself, and I immediately open new links without going to them initially and I would decide which one to go to first. This feature is implemented in Opera, but I want to stay with Firefox.

Sincerely, Mr. Mozdor

Hi community, when i have only one tab opened in Firefox i can click on the "close tab"-X or Ctrl+W. This action will close Firefox, but it won't close the tab. So when i start Firefox this last opened tab, which usually would be closed after clicking on the X, will open at start again.

This behavior drives me crazy. If i want to close Firefox with the only tab opened remaining until restart, i usually would click the red X of the Windows forms control elements.

Is there any option in "about:config" which really can close the last remaining tab, while also closing Firefox?

Thank you
