Why must a new tab/window open when I click a link? In settings I see to "open new tab instead of new window" but instead of having a bunch of tabs I am done using (like from a google search to an actual webpage) I would rather just have my current tab switch to the link I am choosing. Am I missing a setting?

I use iCloud.com for my email. A couple days ago my launched message windows (such as opening or replying to a message) will not come forward of the main screen. The tabs appear as thumbnail previews (see attached), but will not display on top. They stay behind the main window screen and cannot be used.

I am on current Firefox version (88.0.1), and did several refreshes which would fix it temporarily, but then it reverts back. I did a complete uninstall and re-installed, but this still has not fixed the problem.

This appears to be only on this PC: I have another almost identical box where Firefox displays the iCloud tabs correctly.

I'm now having to use MS Edge to send or reply to messages from iCloud.

In Firefox, when I need to use more than 1 tab at a time - for example filling in an official form, when I have to go to my email to retrieve a code sent, when I go back to find the original form I was working on, it has closed or gone. It is proving impossible for me to fillout out forms on offcial sites or for some services becsue when I leave to go to my email, I have to restart the form filling from the start?!! I would be grateful for an VERY easy to follow, jargon free (assume I am very simple - it's OK, I do not mind) solution. becasue i am unable to work when the site i am working on closes everytime I have to go somewhere elase for info.

Nnother issue is, if more than one tab is open, can I just click backwards and forwards onto different sites/pieces of work? I used to be able to do this in Google, but in Firefox it has proved impossible. If more than one tab is open, where would the other tabs be? On top, or at the bottom of the screen?

The add-on extension "NewTabURL" (by "sogame") provided the option I want and used for a number of years. But it stopped working when Firefox was updated to version 16.0. When I click for a new tab, all I get is a completely blank tab. How can I automatically have the new tab always be a copy of the current active tab?

Can the extension "NewTabURL" be revised to work in version 16 and/or version 17? If not, how else can I get the new tab functionality that I desire? I can't seem to find any other extension that provides that functionality.

hi all

Having updated to Firefox 17.0 (from 16.0.2), for some reason I don't get warned when closing multiple tabs any more.

I've confirmed the relevant options are selected and am 100% certain this was working fine before updating Firefox today.

I've replicated the problem on my vista 32bit platform and on XP 32 bit too.

I also looked at the changelog for Firefox 17 but can't see any explanation for this change in behaviour, although I wonder whether this might have something to do with it "772319 No option to disable the "Close other tabs" prompt."

As I use Tab Mix Plus (add-on), I've also checked Firefox in safemode and have found the native tab warnings not working, so have concluded it's an issue with Firefox (rather than something to do with an extension).

I've checked "about:config" and "browser.tabs.warnOnClose" is set to true, as is "browser.tabs.warnOnCloseOtherTabs".

Any help would be appreciated.


Thanks,

Gary

I have been forced to create a new profile because, after an update to version 17.0, Firefox persisted in opening tabs from the previous session. Unfortunately another problem developed, namely, the constant appearance of a series of thumbnails in a new tab, a facility that I definitely do not want. After consulting Mozilla help and forums I tried all of the suggested solutions to no avail.

I eventually went about:config browser.newtabpage.enabled and rendered it false. The annoying thumbnails have disappeared!!!!!

How do I stop FF from restoring previous session, I've already played with all the options I can find but nothing stops it unless I delete history each time.

Recently, FF has started opening my last tabs when I start a fresh session. I have already checked to make sure that none of the applicable settings are enabled, such as under Options->General: When FF starts "SHOW MY HOMEPAGE" is selected. But for some reason, it opens my last session. The only way I've been able to get it to stop doing this is by having it delete my browsing history after I close the session. I don't want this since I often use my history to re-find information I need for class research. I have made certain that all my settings are the same from before FF started doing this. It only started doing this after the computer was turned off for a long weekend.

I've already searched through the Mozilla help pages and all I can find is how to restore the previous session or similar. I don't want to restore my previous session, I want it to stop restoring my previous session without having to delete my browsing history each time.

It seems intuitive to me that opening multiple tabs (w/ one copy of Firefox running) should be more efficient than opening multiple copies of Firefox, but I can't find anything about this when I google it or search your site. Which is better, or does it not matter? If one is better over the other, is there a lot of difference?

f it matters, I usually have 4-6 tabs open, but sometimes 10 or so. He usually has 4-6 copies of Firefox running, w/ 1 or 2 tabs each.

I'm tired of arguing this, so I'd really like to know. Thank you!

I have history turned off so images aren't cached for the New Tab Page and have to be reloaded when Firefox is restarted. Also, some of the sites that I have pinned are using HTTPS and wont allow their images to be cached.

Is there a way for me to set a custom image for each pinned website? Either a custom screenshot that isn't in the cache or an icon of some sort? Anything would be better than a blank box there.

Thank you

This just began to happen yesterday. I have a MacBook Pro 10.7.5. I can always get to the first page that I open in a new browser, but any page after that that I try to open in a new tab will seem to load but the page is blank. This does not just happen with one website I have tried myriad of different sites.. only the first tab loads in a new browser. I am having to open a new browser if i want to go to another link - very frustrating..

There is no "Tabs on Top" option.

Tab Mix Plus will move it to bottom of view-port, but not below address bar at top of view-port.

Extremely awkward; makes navigation difficult and harder to locate tabs, being more distant from view-port.
