Why am I losing my open tabs. I have it set to open where left off.

This has happened about 3 times recently. It is a huge inconvenience as I have multiple windows with a lot of tabs open in each. It is too active and difficult to save them all as bookmarks. I thought if you were signed into your account, that would automatically remember what your open tabs were.

I think it has something to do with clearing history. A couple times that function seemed to stall. Like this time. This doesn't happen all the time though. I can clear data & history, have all my tabs sitting there, and they are restored when I go back in, as usual.

I am going to have to change browsers if this continues because I need all my working tabs, many which I will not even remember, to get back to manually.

I just turned sync on (was reluctant to do that as I don't know all the specifics how it works). My mobile phone open tabs did not wipe out as I feared probably because looks like I'm not signed in there. Might have lost everything there also. But does having sync turned on keep things stored in your account so it can't get wiped out?

Firefox preventing Win10 going into sleep mode

Hi I read these articles and they doesnt help to resolve the problem https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1349609 https://support.mozilla.org/bm/questions/1206172 https://www.reddit.com/r/firefox/comments/ip88y7/firefox_is_preventing_windows_10_from/?rdt=53488

Problem: I have Win10. Firefox 107. I have noticed that if I have opened only regular/textual web pages in my tabs like news/articles then PC goes to sleep after specified time of inactivity. But if I open in the one tab some media content like videoclip/animation/movies and put media content on pause then PC doesnt go to sleep after specified time. PC goes to sleep only by manual command (Start>Sleep). Even If I close the tab with media content PC doesnt go to sleep after specified time. I should or totally close the browser with all opened tabs or manually select Start>Sleep.

Could you help to resolve this issue ?

On the screenshots are shown that some of firefox processes couldn't stop making some activity, every second they make some web request or disk operation. May be this is reason why PC cant go to sleep. But again, this is happen only or some media content is put on pause or some tab with media content has been closed.

When I try to open a link from an external software, in my case mostly discord, that which I click on, I get the profile manager opened, ask for which profile I should open from. If I already have the Firefox window for that profile open, I have to close the whole window and then it opens with all the tabs with a tab for the link I clicked on.

I would like to open tabs like how Chrome does, not asking for profile (yes, I know, I can just make things open on only one profile but I want to choose which one I want it to every single time without manager) and instead opens up from the profile window that I just had on.

I would like to open external links on an existing window and not close to open it.

So, ultimately, make my Firefox open link from the latest profile window I was on, and it does not require to close an existing window to open the link.

Hello! Since updating to the last version (119.0.1), Firefox started keeping my open tabs between sessions. This is a behavior I don't want, and the only solution that I found told me to enable "clear history on close", however that is also not ideal, because I don't want to clear my history. The "Open previous windows and tabs" setting is off and my homepage is set to Firefox Default. I don't know where else to look for such a setting, except in the about:config, but even there I'm not sure which one is causing the issue. Any assistance would be appreciated.

Windows 10 Pro 21H2, Firefox 119.0.1

New Firefox is making me angry everytime I use it. New tabs are doing what they want, they never open near the site that i'm watching. Sometimes they open in the middle of other tabs, sometimes at the end. That is so problematic and frustrating that i would download an opera if i can't change it. I use about 90 tabs and that's the way I'm using Internet, I won't change it. I have searched in settings but there is nothing. Old mozilla haven't done this. Can someone help me?

Ctrl+Shift+T opening new tabs instead of restoring closed ones

I'm facing a bewildering problem with Ctrl+Shift+T, which has only started in the past few hours and persisted through troubleshooting.

In short, it's opening a default new tab when I press that combination, rather than reopening the last closed tab, as is its normal function. The problem is not that the tabs themselves are lost -- the "Reopen Closed Tab" drop-down menu entry is still available on right-click, and seems to function as expected. Similarly, I checked about:config to see if there was a problem with sessionstore or sessionrestore, both of which are at their default settings and can't be causing this. Rather, something about the combination itself is no longer working.

I ran Firefox in Troubleshoot Mode to see if any of my settings were causing this. The problem persisted there, so that doesn't seem to be the case.

A little over a month ago, I got a new phone and synced up my desktop and mobile (Android) Firefox tabs, which I hadn't done previously. This is really the only thing I can think of that would lead to any issues, but it's impossible to match the timeframes -- I noticed this problem today, five hours ago. (The failure for ctrl+shift+t to work includes tabs that were opened from mobile sync.) I make heavy use of this keyboard shortcut and would've noticed it earlier if it started earlier.

Something about Ctrl+Shift+T itself is not properly being 'translated'. Ctrl+T works as expected (opens a blank tab), which is the same thing the Shift version is doing. Both my Ctrl and Shift keys are working fine in other respects (e.g. shift key capitalizes letters and adds special characters), so it's not keyboard hardware. It's not "inconsistent" -- it consistently works for everything else, and consistently doesn't work for this.

I'm using Firefox 122.0 on Windows 11.

It seems every time I update Firefox they add something else I don't like. Recently, I did the update, and now my tabs are too tall and I can't access my menu, and/or they interfere with the Min and Max l buttons on the top right.

How do I adjust the height of the tabs so they don't go all the way to the top of the browser screen?

Hello. I was having issues with my open tabs in FF crashing in the past 24 hours. I had to restart FF this morning to get the problem to stop.

To my dismay, it appears that all of my Onetab data saved over the past year was wiped out in the process. I'm a writer, and I save these links for article research, and would like to recover as many as possible.

Any assistance would be appreciated! I use Idrive for backup, and would need to know the directory pathway if they were to help me to recover this data (if that's even possible).

Thanks in advance! Claudia

Hi, it has occurred to me that I lose the browsing history of tabs that were open for a long time. By browsing history i mean the sites that show up in "Go back one page" arrow. The issue is that after a website has been open for some time (this seems to be in range of days, perhaps weeks) the browsing history of that tab is forgotten and the Go back one page arrow goes blank. I would like to be able to keep this history for eternity, is there any way to enable that?

To be clear, I use the feature to save tabs of my previous sessions and also the Simple Tab Groups extension.

Thanks in advance, Alex

Tabs always start in mute mode. I can turn it on by pressing speaker logo in the tab. The problem is when I shift to a new tab, the previous tab mutes automatically.

Greetings, for some reason lately over the last couple weeks I have noticed that when I open a link to a site that I've had in my bookmarks for years it now opens that link or that page and then within a couple seconds another tab will open for advertisement or possibly even the duplication of the originally called upon link in the previous tab. I would like to stop these additional tabs from opening automatically without my request.

thanks in advance,
