Is there a functionality to view Tabs Side-by-Side, or Vertical yet? Or is there a plan for it; similar to the recent version of Edge Chromium? I have read several questions; and their work-around solutions of using a side bar or sing two windows and arranging them side-by-side. Neither functionality offers synchronized scrolling. I used Tile Tabs or We Tabs add-on in the past which was great.

Tabs Unexpectedly Opening in New Windows in Full-Screen Mode on MacOS

Hi firefox community,

I am using Firefox version 127.0.2 as my main browser on MacOS Sonoma 14.5. For the past few months, when using Firefox in Mac's full-screen mode, I've been experiencing an issue where one of the multiple open tabs unexpectedly displays in a separate window the moment I click on it.

This behavior didn't occur previously, and I believe it started happening about 3 months ago. It doesn't happen every time, but occurs a few times a day when I least expect it, making it difficult to identify the specific conditions that trigger it. I use a Magic Trackpad, and after switching to full-screen using the three-finger gesture, the moment I try to activate a specific tab, that tab alone displays as a separate window in full-screen mode.

Is it possible that a Firefox version update has changed this behavior? If this is a Firefox issue, is there a way to capture debug logs to have the developers investigate it?

Alternatively, if there's an option to prevent tabs from opening in new separate windows, that would be an effective workaround. Could you please let me know if such an option exists?

Best regards,

I use multiple windows with multiple tabs in each window. I am wondering if Firefox can be improved so that when I open a link in a new tab it opens in my CURRENT window (the one I'm looking at in front and the one in which I asked to add a new tab) rather than a window in the background or minimized. Firefox chooses to open new tabs in the last window in which I opened a new tab, even if they're in the background or minimized, which gets very annoying because I am constantly switching between windows to work on different topical projects. If this could be fixed I would appreciate it! Thanks.

Hello all. I am looking for a way to prevent the width of tabs from resizing when either adding or subtracting tabs from the tab bar. The only reference I can find to this issue is a 2014 post found here: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/989387. The suggestions therein do not apply to the current FF version. Among other things, the suggestion to go to the setting "browser.tabs.animate" does not seem to apply to the current FF version since I can not find such a setting. Like the OP in the 2014 post, the auto tab resizing drives me nuts! (Maybe he/she and I are the only people in the whole FF world community who are bothered by this?!) I would much prefer the tab width to stay the same and use the arrows on each side of the tab bar to access tabs that do not fit across the screen when many tabs are open. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. I am using FF 128.0 with Win 10 22H2 build 19045.4651. Thanks for any suggestions. John H

This has been happening for a while now, it’s been happening multiple times a day and at random times. I can’t switch to other tabs or if I want to switch to a tab that’s like 5 tabs away, it will just group the tabs together. I can’t use the X button either to exit these tabs. While this happens my Mac acts weird and highlights random things as well. If I want to open a link it will open a whole new window for that tab although I turned that feature off in preferences. The only way I can fix this temporarily is to shut my Mac down and then get back in.

Hi,

Since the last update (I'm on 127.0.2) or at least very recently in the last 2 weeks, my tabs previously closed with Firefox as a whole that should open with Firefox, on start up, don't and I'm redirected to my homepage.

(I have tried finding help on other posts of the same nature but can't seem to make it work hence the new post.)

I have tried changing my homepage to verify it was redirecting me to it. It did. I have tried restarting my computer. Didn't work. I have tried disabling and re-enabling the options. Didn't work. I have tried all this on my work and personal computer. Same results. (They do not share the same settings)

I feel like Firefox opens my previous tabs, opens Firefox once again on the homepage and then closes the window with all tabs. I'm saying this because it happened 2 to 4 times that after I restart my computer, it opens 2 windows on 2 different windows desktops like I did when I worked before. (with the previously closed window on the second window opened...) Also, another reason for me to believe this is : the newly opened windows have a format which I used to open my second and third Firefox windows with that were very different from my first one (usually full screen).

I am lost at what I could try to do to fix the issue. I'm not sure how much of what I shared can help to find a solution so I tried to dump as much related info as I could.

Thanks for reading me, Ludovic

OS Version: Windows 11 Home, 23H2 Firefox Version: 127.0.2

I have several virtual desktops: Desktop 1, 2, 3 and 4. Case 1: Assume that there is at least one opening Firefox window in any virtual desktop. And, if I try to open a new window in Desktop x (x = 1, ..., 4), it will appears in Desktop x as expected. Case 2: Assume that there are currently no opening Firefox windows in any virtual desktop. And, if I try to open a new window in Desktop 2 or 3 or 4, it will only appears in Desktop 1.

it's extremely annoying to have to stop what i'm doing and play "lets find the active tab" when i have tons of youtube videos qued in open tabs. in opera, the logic is there out of the box, but in firefox, it doesn't exist. why such logic wouldn't exist is beyond me, but i see this as an annoying problem that needs fixed. i want to simply glance up at the tabs and see which one is playing without having to spend time digging through the open tabs to find the one that's playing or having to freakin memorize which one it was i don't have time for that.

i followed the guide in this thread: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1291998 i did exactly everything as instructed but it did absolutely nothing, no change at all.

I'm on the latest version of Firefox, 106.1, and I'm missing the Firefox View button on my MacBook Pro 13". It is showing on my Mac Mini M1, and both are logged in and syncing properly using my Firefox account.

When I type in about:firefoxview on my MacBook Pro in the URL bar, I see the page but noticed it says "New colorways are on the way" on the right. On my Mac Mini, I see the "Independent Voices" text and an option to "Try colorways".

Bug? Some weird setting on my MacBook? Both are running macOS Monterey, 12.6.

Why isn't the Restore Previous Session choice available on the Open Application Menu? Even if I click the checkbox under Tools/Settings/General/Startup: Open Previous Windows and Tabs (version 107/windows 11), I am presented with a tabula rasa screen on reopening my Firefox session. Your help/support says to go to the Open Application Menu/History and choose Restore Previous Session (located between Recently Closed Windows and Clear Recent History). However the Restore Previous Session is not listed. Not sure why Firefox can't get this right since you have had it right for the almost 20 years I have chosen it as my default browser.

In Firefox 114.0.2, the tab foreground color for most NYTimes.com pages initially is black, but after an instant, the foreground color now becomes gray. The background color is a similar gray, so the tab symbol for the NYTimes (beginning with an ornate letter T) cannot be distinguished from the background. The NYTimes tab foreground color used to remain black.

For an example, go to https://www.nytimes.com/. The tab foreground colors for some NYTimes pages remain black; for example, go to https://help.nytimes.com/hc/en-us. I think this tab foreground color change began recently, less than a month ago. This problem does not occur for web sites other than the NYTimes. Restarting my computer does not help. This tab color problem does not occur in Edge or Chrome.

Thanks for any info
