In most standard Windows applications, the title bar and tab colour follows the default Windows settings, e.g. (in my case) the title bar and tab colour of active application windows is blue. This is true even in Thunderbird. Since FF 89, title bar and tabs are something between white and light gray, which is extremely user-un-friendly. FF developer team should return to the previous colour scheme. Yes, I know the circumstances of free software but this is NO excuse to alienate millions of users. Developers that change fully functionable software just, well, just to CHANGE it should consider that they are doing WRONG. Could anyone tell them? I am just user, not developer and I am not willing to learn developer tools like BugZilla just for this simple guiding principle.

Hiya,


I'm having a minor inconvenience with firefox 91.0.2 for a few months now. It's popped up a few months ago and hasn't resolved itself in between updates.

I'm guilty of having many (well over 20) tabs open at the same time and around the 20th or 30th tab even, usually one of the (newly opened) tabs, simply never loads. If I open the same link in another tab, the link (any url) does load. See the screencap below.

This is on a windows 64 bit machine OS build: 19043.1165 (21H1) Windows Feature Experience Pack 120.2212.3530.0

I'm running Norton 360 Antivirus software.

Will try running in safe mode, to see if it still happens and confirm in a reply to this message.

Hoping you guys might have some suggestions.

BTW: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1317506 is probably the same problem, unfortunately the thread has been archived. This one: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1285104 also seems similar.

I generally have loads of tabs open, and until recently this wasn’t an issue (perhaps until last upgrade?), but now, I can hardly move between tabs, the drop down list showing tab selection doesn’t work, nor does the left/right arrows. When I delete a tab, it leaves a ‘space’ where the tab was, only ‘back filling’ after I’ve opened up another tab to full screen mode and then minimised it again, at which point it goes to the very left-most tab and the only way I can get to tabs further down the list, is by deleting them in the manner described. I’ve actually got 2 laptops (Win 7 & 8.1), and it’s now happening on both of them. This might have something to do with memory management/the computer’s page file, but as things stand, I’m SERIOUSLY going to be switching to another browser - despite sticking with Firefox for many-a-year. BTW, I’m actually writing this on my phone, as I couldn’t now do it on either of my laptops (hence I’m currently unable to attach anything/provide screen grabs etc. I guess the only way to ‘clear’ this issue, would be to either close/restart Firefox or my laptop - neither of which I really want to do. Is there a way that I can use an earlier version of the browser and prevent it automatically updating? Yours, a now very frustrated longtime user,

In one of my windows, 9 out of 10 pinned tabs have been lost and replaced with "new tab" (which are all empty, of course).

The only unusual thing I can remember was using a private window a few days ago (a feature that I had never used before). Is this the cause of this bug???

Thanks.

Help!! How do I hide the tab bar in version 92?

I put off updating to version 92 because I knew what would happen: I'd have to jump through hoops to hide the tab bar again. I NEVER use tabs. I have a wide screen monitor and I prefer opening new windows to using tabs. In that way I can look at 2 or more pages at the same time.

Referencing these threads: 1281774 1307368 1317055 https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1333680 (I posted a reply to this thread, but I can't view it and the moderator has apparently closed it thinking this problem has gone away)

We can ascertain that NOTHING seems to help this condition. In fact these threads apply to me as Win 7 / 64 bit apply to me. This started probably about 1.5 years ago.

I too have this problem and yes, it is random. BUT once locked in with this condition, it may "get stuck" for another 5 attempts for the same link. BEST Example, I do surveys every Friday and Saturday night. I use my netscape (AOL) email account. At random, while clicking on the survey link the tab will come up blank and no matter what you do, you CANNOT get this tab to do ANYTHING. No reload, no clicking on a new bookmark, no clicking on home, or typing in the address bar and pressing enter on THAT particular tab. How often does it happen? Maybe 12 times a month (during survey time: maybe every other weekend).

One step further on this. My wife's account on the PC actually does this on a DAILY BASIS REPEATEDLY EVERY DAY when she opens FireFox. In her case, it can ONLY be solved by closing and reopening FireFox after waiting like...say...2 minutes after previously opening it? I have tried opening new tabs etc as mentioned above (including the old right clicky trick and using the "Open in new tab" function). Kinda silly when you have like 27 tabs of blankness. Considering it is her account on the Pc, ok, maybe the "refresh" function might work on her? BZZZT! Nope.

Current version. I can attest that a PC at my 2 jobs that both have Win 7 and at least one, if not both, have 64 bit versions and do NOT display this malady. Also, I did re-install FF about 2 years ago for some other problem. I just ran the troubleshooting more...no go. Per this lead, try https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/topic/the-latest-supported-visual-c-downloads-2647da03-1eea-4433-9aff-95f26a218cc0... and guess what? No such help . Anyone have have something to kill this bug?

Apparently Firefox doesn't realize the importance of Tabs to many of its users. As a Senior, I depend on the separation of the tabs. I see many others complaining about this issue, including those who rely on the separation for business purposes. FireFox chose to answer one user's request by saying they're moving on and basically, the user is just going to have to deal with it.

I love(d) Firefox, but it's time to say good bye. The tabs are a make/break issue for me. I've started the migration back to Microsoft Edge, which does allow tab separators, at least for now.

I hope that Firefox will reconsider at some point and allow us to put separators in just as it does on the Favorites Bar.

Thank you.

Ok I'm a big time safari user and have a pile of pinned tabs 50% were for work and the other 50% were personal. With the latest release of firefox with the security of cross site tracking you offered I moved all of my personal tabs to firefox.

My problem is that when I open firefox the pinned tabs are gone. I've added them 3 times they are pinned therfore I want the to stick around. why does firefox seem to throw them away.

I have very specific urls that I want to keep open and pinned tabs allow me to do this, If firefox can't keep them for me I will have to just go back to safari (no I don't want chrome)

Hi there

I experience an issue with Firefox on one of my computers only. Windows 10, just updated to version 92.0 (but to be fair this is an issue that lasts for years now). I cannot receive any Tab from my other computer or smartphone, nor can i share (i don't see the option in the list when i right click on a tab). Of course it is connected to sync with all my other 4 devices. Maybe there shall be some "user preference" on that specific computer that should be reset ?

Thanks in advance for giving hints and leads, hopefully that should not be too serious.

The setting Restore previous session, on settings, general, is marked. History is kept, and the previous tabs are on the history menu (no restore session option is available, however).

Things I tried: Started on safe mode. Deleted startup cache. Refreshed the profile. Turned off add-ons.

So far, nothing works. When I close the browser with tabs open and I open it again, it starts with my homepage only.
