Every time I quit Firefox it closes all my tabs. I have "restore previous session" checked in the preferences. Is there something else I can do besides making pinned tabs? I just want my normal tabs to open when I reboot Firefox. Thanks.

This problem appeared suddenly after restarting Firefox. I can't move or drag tabs nor items in my bookmark tab.

I've tried starting it in safe mode, to no avail. I've tried quickly reinstalling Firefox to remove any possible add-ons which would cause this problem, but even that didn't resolve the issue. Any help would be appreciated.

On desktop, whenever I left-click on a link to a Facebook or Instagram page, the page opens in the same tab, but the top-left back button is grey (unavailable) as if I had opened a new tab. I noticed this problem maybe two weeks ago, it only happens in Firefox, and only with links to Facebook or Instagram.

HERE IS THE ANSWER Here is the answer to get TABS BELOW with Firefox V90 . . copy all of this code below the broken line into your - userChrome.css - file and save it. You can modify the 45px in this line if you wish to get an appropriate height . . just experiment with different numbers till you get it right --menubar-height: 45px; /*30px|41px=11px; caption buttons on menubar*/

Also to make the tabs wider or narrower, modify the line which is coded width: 50vw !important;

Finally you must enable - css - in Firefox, by typing about:config into your address bar, and search for toolkit. When all the toolkit options appear change the one which says toolkit.legacyUserProfileCustomizations.stylesheets to TRUE by click the icon in the right hand column. Than close Firefox and reopen, and check how it looks This will enable your - css - file to be read, and interpreted and accepted by the Firefox browser.

The problem started when I reset my new page. Because two tabs were open, it set the second tab as part of the home page. When I noticed this, I reset it (selecting through bookmarks) with a single tab. Unfortunately, it persists in opening two tabs whenever a new window is open, either when starting Firefox or through a link. Hitting "Home" does NOT open a new tab.

One of your FAQs advised removing pipe characters in the home page setting, but this does not apply in this case.

Can you help?

Thanks,

Mark.

Hi

Running Firefox 71.0 (64 bit)

Well seems Firefox has been messing this up again.

Anyone have the new work around solution to get my tabs back on the bottom again. They were fine this morning then shut down and went out to lunch and when I came back they were back on the top again after months of being where I wanted them below my bookmark bar.

Thoughts on this?

Thanks Dave

I had opened my Firefox and, before I restore the previous session tabs, my computer shut down, so it only restored my homepage (the only tab available at that moment). I had dozens of tabs to restore from last time... Is there a way to recover those tabs from a history of tabs or something? 10th june would be fine.

The article https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/containers suggests that there is the following feature: “Assign a website to a container, so that a specific website will always open in a specific container.” I installed the extension Firefox Multi-Account Containers version 6.0.0, but I do not see this feature in the about:preferences#containers or in the context menu of a tab.

Copied from a duplicate question:

I often open links in emails (Mozilla Thunderbird) and from command line. Links need to go to different containers. Is it possible to choose a container before a web page is downloaded?

Recently updated Firefox to FX65 and as expected had the 'Tabs on top problem return.' Followed advice given earlier in <Tabs not on Bottom> forum post and found that there was no 'chrome' folder in my Profile folder so created one and then added the 'userChrome.css' corrected file to move my Tabs back to the bottom. However, on restarting Firefox this fix did not work on my laptop. N.B.: it worked fine for my desktop PC.

So i now need help please?

Had to use restore on my computer recently and after I did, Firefox seem to have lost the ability to save the tabs I had open since the last time I used it, can't remember how it was configured to save the tabs after each session. Also the restore previous session was greyed out so the previous session was not kept, was only able to recover some of the tabs by looking through my history, at this time I can't just close Firefox and open it to my previous tabs, it starts from a new session. Will be closing Firefox from now on till a solution is found from my Task Manager, since this usually lets me restore Firefox previous tabs since it acts like a crash.

I liked the idea of pinned tabs because I was thinking of them as being a way of having multiple "homepages", i.e. when I open my browser, they open automatically. However, they're stored in session data, which means that pinned tabs get lost whenever I close my browser because I have Firefox set up to clear a bunch of different session/history data on close. I'm not sure which setting is causing this, but I'd like a way to have a page open on startup without having to compromise my privacy, so I'd prefer to just pin tabs on startup somehow without having it be related to session history. Is there any way to do this?
