Missing Window and tabs, not in history

I love how the new tab page clearly states "Never fear losing a closed tab again.", and then when a window disappears it is followed by zero history to recover it. I have not restarted Firefox, let alone my computer since the last time the window was seen (about half an hour ago). It's not in my Alt+Tab tray hiding. I don't even remember closing the tab--though it's possible my keyboard double pressed when I was closing another window. (It's old and has a tendency to double hit keys). But now I have lost a window with at least 20 tabs open--mostly things i had yet to deal with and don't remember the URL to get back to it.

What use is my history and ability to reopen accidentally closed windows if everything just disappears from it within half an hour after the window could've been closed?

I would prefer to keep most of my browsing on Firefox, but I can't constitute that if I'm going to lose months worth of saved tabs randomly.

Dear Firefox Team, since updating, I've been enjoying the new Firefox View function. Sadly, as I'm using a few tweaks here and there (vertical tree tabs, modified chrome.css to remove horizontal tabs, etc.), its not visible at the place where it originally belongs. Because of that I'm searching for a way to include it in my workflow. To do this, I've made it my Homepage, and now, I'm trying to change it to my NewTab page as well. I find it more useful than clicking on a random website. I have tried to achieve this with addons and inside about:config; but as you know, "about:newtaburl" has been removed a long time ago.

Do you have an Idea how I could achieve this, or do you think it would be possible to create an option to this in a future release?

Thank you for reading my message, who knows maybe I can give you an Idea

Hi Today I updated Firefox to version 106.0 and I can't get rid of the "arrow button" from top right (screenshot attached - near the minimize button, I marked it). The function of this button is clear for me - tabs management. But I can manage my tabs without special button for it. I want to remove it. I tried right clicking on it, but the "remove from toolbar" option is unavailable. I tried to customize toolbar, but it won't work either (I can't take it from te toolbar).

How to remove this button?

Currently in Windows 11 running Firefox Version 106.0.5 (64-bit).

About three days ago I noticed that I can no longer paste images from Firefox directly into messaging platforms. Didn't think too much about it, until today when I attempted to copy an image from Firefox into a graphics program (Affinity Designer) and what I got instead of the image was a string with the following text:

"C:\Users\squir\AppData\Local\Temp\1659928653877.webp"

I searched online and found that refreshing Firefox should fix the issue. It did not. Attempted to replicate in Chrome and Edge, was able to successfully copy images from both browsers. Attempted to replicate in other graphics programs: With Corel Painter, Inkscape, and Paint I was able to copy-paste from both Chrome and Edge, but not with Firefox.

Once again, I have refreshed Firefox, checked for updates in both the OS and browser, restarted the computer and the problem still persists.

Would appreciate any suggestions as to how I can fix this issue.

I've been unable to play twitter videos at all. For videos and audio posts on other sites, there's usually a delay for a couple seconds before it plays. I disabled all my add-ons and it made no difference. If I try to play 2 different things at once, both of them will chug if play at all.

Does anyone know what the cause might be? I tested videos and audio in another browser and they work fine.

I have two audio devices for audio output (speakers) on my PC. One is for music and the other is a Jabra device for conferences. When using Google Meet, only one of the devices is available to me (the music speakers). What is strange is that when I am using Zoom or Teams both devices are available and selectable.

Echo cancellation would be better if I could use the Jabra device for Google Meet calls.

I am using Firefox / Windows 11 (Version 10.0.22621 Build 22621).

Thanks in advance!

Firefox Lags While Typing After Last Update

Long story short, it's in the title. After the most-recent update, Firefox has been hanging whenever I type, and I'm right in the middle of typing a novel. The CPU usage spikes, according to the Firefox Task Manager, to 300% or MORE just from typing a few words. Even right now, typing this, the screen is sentences behind where I am in my typing. Took an entire minute for the page to catch up. On a single paragraph.

The hanging/lag does not occur when I navigate between pages, stream videos on Youtube or Netflix, or other things which should be about 100x more resource-intensive than typing a few sentences. And yet, that's all that does it.

There are no problems with lag when using Chrome, Discord, or other internet-based programs for typing. There are some issues with my word processor, Open Office Writer, but only when Firefox is open and running too, even though the two don't interact, to my knowledge.

I have followed every step on this page: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/firefox-hangs-or-not-responding This page: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/troubleshoot-and-diagnose-firefox-problems And this page: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/firefox-uses-too-much-memory-or-cpu-resources beyond upgrading my computer, because it is absolutely ridiculous to consider doing that given the circumstances. It's only Firefox having the problem, after all.

In addition, I have reinstalled my keyboard driver, turned off cursor highlighting (it wasn't on, but I enabled it and disabled it again, just in case), and removed any delay in repeat keys in the keyboard config. No difference.

Honestly, I don't know that there's a community-based solution for this, but I'm willing to be wrong about that. I just want to make certain someone more official than myself is aware of the problem.

Thanks in advance, -Tyr

Is there a way to delete a bookmark from the book-mark drop-down window (accessed from triple horizontal bar/right side of browser) but retain the same book-mark that had been saved in a folder created in Other Bookmarks? I discovered that when you delete a book-mark entry from drop down menu, the same entry is also deleted from its saved location in Other Book Marks. I was trying to reduce number of unsorted entries in drop down menu while saving (and retaining) the same link in the Other Bookmarks section and folder. I want to continue using the sorting and discrete folder saving possible with the Other Bookmark section but clean up the clutter in the unsorted bookmark section.

Recently I started a new job and received a laptop, so I've been setting up the laptop with all my stuff, including Firefox. At first I used Firefox's account sync feature, but it doesn't sync everything - my extensions' settings (not the extensions I have but what their settings are), my toolbar customization, all the sites I'm logged into, and maybe some other things are not sync'd. So instead I tried a different solution which has worked for me before - copying my profile folder on my PC and pasting it into the laptop. This mostly works, except suddenly Firefox warns that a lot of my company's websites are a potential security risk with the error code SEC_ERROR_UNKNOWN_ISSUER. I can get past this, but the real problem is some of these websites - namely GitHub - don't load any CSS anymore. I can access the site but it's ugly. Normal GitHub works, only my company's GitHub (which has a different URL) doesn't.

If I switch back to the other profile, it works. But I'd really like to avoid having to manually sync up my extension settings and other things. Is there any other way to resolve this? Thanks.

On or about Nov 3rd, after restarting Firefox (106.0.5 (64-bit)), I cannot get the "Bubblez" game to load. I am a long time Firefox user, but consider myself a Novice in technical terms.

The game is at https://wellgames.com/free_online/bubblez/

Thinking the game server might be down, I tried the Microsoft Edge browser, and the game plays as usual. I have not(to my knowledge) changed any settings or preferences inside Firefox, not added any new addons. I restarted Firefox in SafeMode, and the game still fails to load. It is stuck on the green circle as indicated in the attached screenshot.

Any help will be appreciated.

Is this a known issue for the new update? Whenever I try to click Recently Closed Windows in particular, it just does nothing. It has the grey highlighted bar that shows it wants to do something, but then does nothing. About 1 out of 100 times when i click Recently Closed Tabs, it WILL open to show my recently closed tabs, but generally does the same thing as Recently Closed Windows. I know I have recently closed tabs because I restored session and it is currently showing all my old tabs I had open prior to the update. I also tested to see if my recently closed had just reset by opening a new window and closing it, but it still just does nothing. I use the Recently Closed Windows quite a bit and it's quite irritating that it appears to be broken.

Firefox just updated itself to v106 (x64). Opening Microsoft outlook web mail (https://outlook.office.com/mail/) gives me the opening envelope between 5 & 10 times, then an error screen that says "multiple redirects detected". Hitting the 'refresh' link works fine, and no trouble after that, so maybe a sign in issue? Seems to be a new problem; didn't happen yesterday.
