Working at a project, had approx 20 to 30 tabs open for that and left it over night to continue today. The comp seems made a general update and restarting today seems Mozilla had upgraded too and appears with a specific mask (something new for me) as it wants by all means to enter a profile name finally to start working, i did, but having badly to recognize that all searched and open tabs are closed and deleted even from Chronik so that a week work just vanish .... I am absolutely angry about that .... at least update could offer and warning about to close and safe tabs as the update is going to delete them all.... aaaaarghhhhh

I'm having a weird problem with Firefox for a long time now.

I'm using the latest version, for windows, x64bits - 81.0.2

Sometimes, I press Ctrl+T to open a new TAB and I type an address or paste an address and it just won't load the page... It stays loading, loading and it does nothing.. BUT If I open another tab (Ctrl+T or in the plus sign) and paste or type and address, everything works... This can happen again on the same window or in another window... I just don't know what is happening... I haven't switch to another browser because I love Firefox to much, but I'm getting a bit tired of this problem...

Any hints on why this is happening ?

How to set Firefox to open new tabs on the left, not on the right of the tab list?

Hyperlink is ok, it opens on the right of the current tab, but not the Ctrl+T or when opening link from the pinned tab. Tab is placed to the far right. Current setup is not logical. If pinned tabs (important ones which you visit often) are on the beginning, and the tabs you are actively working on are on the opposite end of the tab bar. You want to open new tabs near the pinned ones.

When Firefox has been running for some time it becomes very unresponsive. This is a very well known and very longstanding problem. The only solution is to simply restart Firefox. Unfortunately, if one has multiple tabs open, restarting Firefox will not reload those opened tabs. This is a gigantic PITA as this user usually has more than ten tabs open, many with various and sundry search results. Which I then have to laboriously open new tabs for and re-enter all the different search terms.

Is there any way to restart Firefox WITH those tabs ?!?!??!?!

After more than ten very satisfactory years of Firefox use do I really have to switch to another browser that doesn't require constant restarts and pray that I can find equivalent privacy and ad-blocking extensions ?

I had like over 100 tabs lol but I had a Windows Update. My laptop froze while I had Firefox open. After the laptop restarted, I realized the new patches didn't get applied before Windows started up again, so after Windows started back up, (I did not open Firefox at all during this cycle) I went to Windows Update and hit Restart to apply the updates. After the updates got patched in and Windows restarted, I went to open Firefox and it just opens the home page.

I do have Restore Previous Session upon Startup checkmarked.

Tried restoring from the 3 line Menu button but the Restore option is not there.

Did try under History in the Menu bar but my Recently Closed Windows and Recently Closed Tabs are greyed out.

Tried the Library icon's Recently Closed Windows and Recently Closed Tabs within History and they both show up as (Empty)

Went to my Profile's folder into the sessionstore-backups folder and there's only 2 small 44kb files there both that were created when I started Firefox up: recovery.baklz4 and recovery.jsonlz4 ... the sessionstore-backups folder itself was also created when I started up Firefox after my Windows Update.

I read thru stuff like https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1204253 I do not have any files that have previous.jsonlz4 or upgrade.jsonlz4 like mentioned in my sessionstore-backups folder... not sure if they may be somewhere else like in 1 of the Temp folders somewhere else in Windows folder.

If I uninstall last Windows Updates, would it revert my Firefox Profiles folder to what it previous was or does Uninstalling last Windows Updates have no effect on the Firefox folder?

The add-on extension "NewTabURL" (by "sogame") provided the option I want and used for a number of years. But it stopped working when Firefox was updated to version 16.0. When I click for a new tab, all I get is a completely blank tab. How can I automatically have the new tab always be a copy of the current active tab?

Can the extension "NewTabURL" be revised to work in version 16 and/or version 17? If not, how else can I get the new tab functionality that I desire? I can't seem to find any other extension that provides that functionality.

I have just updated to Firefox 17; I have used it back from version 3, and I feel it's time to say goodbye to Mozilla Firefox!

I have used a lot of other programs, and I don't think there is any other program that updates as frequently as Firefox - every couple of months there is a new version!

It's not bad thing itself, but very, very bad thing is that, each time I update Firefox, one third of my plugins and addons are not compatible with new version! That completely ruins my joy of surfing the internet; since updating from Firefox 14 to current Firefox 17, I have lost at least five addons that were very important for me; the last one, now, is Tab Mix Plus, it's not compatible with Firefox 17, and my Firefox now looks completely different from what I'm used to, I cannot use it!

This has become unbearable any longer: I cannot cope with constant updates of program and addons, and finding replacements for addons that became incompatible! I want to browse internet, and not always to maintain something within Firefox!

You offered me some half of dozen years of excellent experience of browsing the web, but you've become too user enemy for my liking; , so bye, bye, Firefox!

hi all

Having updated to Firefox 17.0 (from 16.0.2), for some reason I don't get warned when closing multiple tabs any more.

I've confirmed the relevant options are selected and am 100% certain this was working fine before updating Firefox today.

I've replicated the problem on my vista 32bit platform and on XP 32 bit too.

I also looked at the changelog for Firefox 17 but can't see any explanation for this change in behaviour, although I wonder whether this might have something to do with it "772319 No option to disable the "Close other tabs" prompt."

As I use Tab Mix Plus (add-on), I've also checked Firefox in safemode and have found the native tab warnings not working, so have concluded it's an issue with Firefox (rather than something to do with an extension).

I've checked "about:config" and "browser.tabs.warnOnClose" is set to true, as is "browser.tabs.warnOnCloseOtherTabs".

Any help would be appreciated.


Thanks,

Gary
