Regarding the sponsored ads in the new tab screen, the help link states, "Mozilla is paid when users click on sponsored shortcuts."

I just wanted to know if Mozilla is paid for each click or for each unique click. If I click it 100 times on the same computer, does Mozilla get more income than if I were to only click it once?

Hello, Yesterday I accidentally removed the icon that allowed me to quickly open a new window by the tab on the right. I was looking for how to turn it back on, and unfortunately I could not find such information or option in the settings. It makes it very easy for me to work and search for information. In the attachments I will send a screenshot of what it looks like with me now and what icon I am referring to; I downloaded a picture from the Internet where it is. Thank you in advance for your help.

How to prevent a Firefox window to accept new tabs from outside?

I use Firefox on Linux, on a wide screen, usually with multiple windows open at the same time.

Specifically, I have a smallish window containing a calendar view. It's annoying that new tabs get created in that small window, because I have to move them manually to another window and resize that. I'd like to be spared the clicks and drags to get that done, or always needing to remember to move the focus to another Firefox window after doing something with the calendar.

Is there a way to accomplish the following: 1. When I've got a Firefox window open that I don't want new tabs in 2. And I open a link from outside Firefox (say, from a mail in Thunderbird or from my IDE) 3. A new tab doesn't get created in the window from 1. 4. Even if that window has the focus. 5. Instead, the URL gets opened in either a new tab in another Firefox window or a new Firefox window

I'm fine with a stable add-on, if that's what it takes to do this.

Any ideas greatly appreciated!

I've mentioned this before but never have found good answers or feedback. Too often (well more than I'd like) I've closed Firefox and when I come back (start up Firefox again) my previous Tabs are lost. And, there is no option to restore previous session, nor closed tabs. Firefox keeps history, why can't it keep a history of previous tabs. And, why does it frequently not provide: Restore previous session. It seems that keeping a history previous tabs for a period of time isn't that difficult. Please enlighten me. This has happened to me (losing the previous tabs) more than care to remember.

Firefox has stopped restoring the previous session when launched.

I have the relevant option checked in the settings and have tried deleting the sessionstore* files in the profile folder.

The only sessionstore files I could find were in the sessionstore backups folder with no "*sessionstore*" files within the main/profile folder itself.

This is on a machine running the abysmal windows 11

Hi

Running Firefox 71.0 (64 bit)

Well seems Firefox has been messing this up again.

Anyone have the new work around solution to get my tabs back on the bottom again. They were fine this morning then shut down and went out to lunch and when I came back they were back on the top again after months of being where I wanted them below my bookmark bar.

Thoughts on this?

Thanks Dave

Firefox updated and now my tabs are above the address bar, I hate it. I have went through all the information I could and created a new chrome folder, downloaded the css and changed user preferences but it sets the tabs to the bottom of the screen not just below the address bar. I think I need a different set of code for the css but cant find a copy. Does anyone know what to do?

When you're in a fullscreen tab, like a youtube video, and use the command for a new tab (ctrl + t) you are not directly in the address-bar in that new tab.

If you're in a non-fullscreen tab and use the command, then you are directly in the address-bar.

This is inconsistent and annoying. If you are watching an English youtube video and you come across a word you don't know, and you press "ctrl + t" to get to a new tab, you're not in the address-bar to type something like "meaning word".

Is this a bug? Is this an intended feature? How do I fix this? Is there a setting for this in about:config?

I lost my tabs again today at start-up. I went to history & did "Open All In Tabs" for about 200 tabs...most of the important ones did not come back. I can't be doing this on a regular basis. You've spoiled me with the tabs staying on the browser every day. But, even though I've used Mozilla for years, I may have to find something else I can trust! This is twice now...I can't spend this kind of time trying to recover things (many of which I can't get to).
