Hi,

Firefox = 121.0.1 64-bit Win10 = 22H2 (19045.3930)

Not for the first time but the 3rd in the past few months I was closing a tab in Firefox and my PC immediately reset. No warning, just straight to blank screen as soon as I closed a tab (I had 4 open). Next thing I knew it was going through re-boot. No crash report in Firefox.

This last time I had Facebook open, I had a video in Facebook popped-out, it had finished playing and I went to close the FB tab.

Ian.

For ages I've had my tabs automatically restored when opening Firefox. But as of the last few days it won't. The old links are saved so I can restore them one by one through history but that's not automatic. And if I click on restoration in History it will bring up a whole bunch of old tabs not neccessarily from the last session.

I'm on the same computer as I've been for over a year, so I don't know what what the problem is. I've searched on it and tried to re-check the box for this function. But it won't apply...

All of a sudden, I can no longer open new tabs in Firefox just by clicking the top bar (sorry, don't know how to describe this: the space that sits just below the line with 'File', 'Edit', 'View', 'History', etc. (Menu bar?) Formerly, when I had a tab open I used to be able just to click that line and a new tab would open. To open a new tab now I have to look to the right of the screen, and press the '+' button (Open a new tab Control+ 1) that appears in that same area just below the that is there. Not nearly as convenient. Please tell me how to fix this as simply as possible (I am not very computer literate). I have done nothing to change anything in the Firefox settings, so don't know why this happened all of a sudden. Very frustrating. My bookmarks all disappeared too, by the way, thoughI figured out how to resstore them to top of screen. I am using Windows 10 Thanks in advance, A frustrated Cynthia

I use an addon to display my tabs in a tree on the side of the screen. As such, the horizontal tabs at the top of the screen are unnecessary, and I would like to remove them.

I've tried to follow a few other guides on how to do this, without success. I've created a userChrome.css file in the "chrome" folder of my active Firefox profile. It currently looks like this:

  1. tabbrowser-tabs {

visibility: collapse !important; min-height: 0 !important; }

tab{ display:none!important; }

However, the tabs remain. I've tried a few other permutations of these rules. I've made sure to save the text file and restart firefox multiple times. It also persisted across a PC restart.

What am I doing wrong?

Today when I close many tabs using control w firefox seems to randomly jump around when choosing which next tab to close

I wish to have firefox always close the adjacent tab to the tab I just closed

This should be the default behavior ... I do not see any setting for this ... is there an addon to do this ?

I am using the latest firefox on ubuntu

      • UPDATE*** below answer for setting `browser.tabs.selectOwnerOnClose` has no impact on this

So I enabled push notifications for Google Calendar. Every time there's a notification, Google Calendar ask if I want to enable "Switch to this tab" for their notifications. I accidentally turned it on, then I managed to turn it off. Except it now keep asking me if I want to enable it.

Looking at the settings, the only two options available are "Always ask" and "Yes", with no way of just saying no... why?

Firefox changed the design on tabs and other features some time back. The whole user experience has been worse since the UX design was changed. For example, it's impossible to find out without going through tab after tab, which one is active and playing. I wish there was an option to reverse back to the old design.

Hello,

I am wondering how to remove the web icons/favicon from tabs (and windows if possible) for specific websites, but not all websites. I know you can hide all favicons using 'userChrome.css' and the code:

.tabbrowser-tab .tab-icon-image { display: none !important; }

Is there any way to configure this to block just a site like Wikipedia, without blocking everything else?

Thanks.
