Hi,

I've got 12 pinned tabs that load at Firefox start and need them to be pinned. Problem is Firefox loads only 3 tabs simultaneously, from left to right. Consequence it takes ages to load all of them and especially the last ones.

I tried to find an about:config setting to mod this behavior, unsuccessfully.

Settings I've already changed (x2): browser.tabs.remote.warmup.maxTabs 6 network.http.max-connections 2000 network.http.max-persistent-connections-per-proxy 34 network.http.max-persistent-connections-per-server 12 network.http.max-urgent-start-excessive-connections-per-host 6

Please could you point me to the correct setting ? Thanks a lot.

Hi, this isn't quite a tab recovery as the session hasn't ended, it just won't display the window. But it's in private browsing so I don't want to close the window since I understand that nothing will be saved from that session. But is there somewhere I can access a list of tabs while the session still exists? I'd hate to lose them all.

Now i always get this in Firefox "Playback Error There's something wrong. Please try again later. "

And yes it is just Firefox. I know that Firefox is killing the ability to listen to Amazon Music as it works perfectly fine in Chrome and Microsoft Edge but not in Firefox at all. I've tried several days - it won't play it.

Really is uninstalling and basically killing Firefox the best?

Does anyone know how to make Firefox warn me when I hit Close on a single tab? Occasionally I accidentally hit the "X" on a single tab that I didn't intend to close. I've searched Help with [warn close "single tab"] but very apparent that putting 2 words in quotes does NOT require them to be together in the search. It returns 106 pages! I saw that it was do-able in older versions of Firefox but since they changed the field to True or False you can't put a 2 in it. I think Firefox is great except for this very irritating flaw. Thank you..

Last time Firefox updated, I managed to find information online about moving the website tabs so they were below the bookmarks instead of at the top of the screen. It was a huge pain-in-the-butt to do.

After a recent re-install, the tabs have moved themselves back to the top of the screen and nothing I do seems to be able to move them back below the bookmarks.

Is there a way I can move the tabs that doesn't involve spending hours hunting through posts on the web, changing hidden Firefox settings, and recoding .css files?

If not, why do you not give the option to move the tabs wherever the user wants? Especially when it makes far more sense to have the website tabs directly above the website being viewed, at least in my opinion?

I'm currently using Firefox 85.0.2 (64-bit).

The only choices given for opening new tabs is either the FireFox page or a blank page. We USED TO be able to set it for what WE wanted, rather than what YOU want. I want to be able to (again) set it so any new tabs opened, come up with my choice, Google.com, rather than the two choices you have chosen. I realize that "changes" are what keeps programmers (I useta was one) employed, but how about programming what your loyal users want? That used to be the case, but now, it seems the "changes" are just done to keep said programmers employed! I am hardly the only one who bemoans the loses we have gone through as someone (who probably doesn't even use FF!) makes it look like they want instead of how we want. Nuff said?

Thank you for years of enjoyable use. Now why not start providing that again?

Hi community, when i have only one tab opened in Firefox i can click on the "close tab"-X or Ctrl+W. This action will close Firefox, but it won't close the tab. So when i start Firefox this last opened tab, which usually would be closed after clicking on the X, will open at start again.

This behavior drives me crazy. If i want to close Firefox with the only tab opened remaining until restart, i usually would click the red X of the Windows forms control elements.

Is there any option in "about:config" which really can close the last remaining tab, while also closing Firefox?

Thank you

Hello dear support! I would like to immediately warn you that I used Yandex translator to write the text, so there may be grammatical errors :) I've been using Firefox for a very long time and I'm happy with everything. But recently I have encountered the" problem " of opening tabs, it has always been there, but I am not comfortable using it.When you search for material intensively by links, when you open any link on the search page by clicking the left mouse button or using the right mouse button "open link in a new tab", in both cases a new tab opens, it throws there and you have to move back to the search page from the opened tab and open another link that I also need, which is inconvenient. In this regard, a question. Is there a setting in the browser so that by clicking on the right button I do not go to an open tab, but it opens itself, and I immediately open new links without going to them initially and I would decide which one to go to first. This feature is implemented in Opera, but I want to stay with Firefox.

Sincerely, Mr. Mozdor

When more than one tab is open, to close ALL tabs by clicking the "X" in the far upper right, a pop-up alert warns and asks if the closure is intentional. A constant annoyance is when I mistakenly close the WRONG tab when multiple tabs are open. Why is there no similar alert to confirm my choice to close a single tab? It would save me time and frustration.

I recently "refreshed" Firefox to solve a printer problem and that worked. But, now I'm having a problem with tabs. Prior to the "refresh" I kept 8-9 tabs always open and they ran across the top of the page with a "new tab" at the right end of the string. I could open a new tab, keep it open, and close it. Now, the new tab is at the upper left and when I search for a new site and open a tab that tab stays at the upper left. When I close that new tab, Firefox closes and I have to start all over again. My standard pages load but I must sign in to every page.

What do I need to do to get the "new tab" to the right of my standard string of tabs and be able to close that new tab without Firefox closing down and forcing me start all over.

I'm running Win 10 on an HP laptop.

Thanks

Dear Mozilla, please implement an "Open-Tab-Next-To-Current"-functionality. A bit better than in the Addon "Open Tab Next To Current". Because the newly created tab opens at the end and "runs" back to the place i want it.

i really want that feature. since so many years, mozilla team has done a great job but didn't implement an option or enable and disable opening tabs next to current.
