Is it possible? Like, for example, you click a link on Discord then it open a new tab AND it makes it the active window.

It would be a bit like this config "browser.link.open_newwindow.override.external" set to "3" not for a window but for a tab + it would make this window the active one.

Browser Tabs Icons Getting Cropped Out - Firefox

Hello,

I'm New To Firefox And I Was Messing Around With The userChrome.css File To Make The Browser More To What I'm Used To.

I Know That I Can Reset It If I Need Too But I'd Like To Find Something Similar To How The Chrome Browser Manages It's Tabs.

I Tried Some Code And I've Got Thus Far:

.tabbrowser-tab {

   min-width: initial !important;
   height: initial !important;

}

.tab-content {

   overflow: hidden !important;

}

Although Chrome Makes The Tabs Go Out Of The Half Screen Window After 44 Tabs, Firefox, With The .css Code, Starts Cropping The Icons After 22-25 Tabs (Depends On The Icon) And Makes The New Tabs Scroll To The Right. I'd Like To Code In Something That "Squishes" The Icons In The Middle Of The Tab Window Just How Chrome Does (And With Around The Same Limit Of Tabs Before Scrolling). Idk Why It Does This And Have No Idea How To Proceed. I've Tried Looking At Other Forums, Posts, And Still Have No Idea On How To Proceed. There Might Be Something Like This Already Coded In So I Can Simply Just Change The Values But Yea.. I Still Haven't Found It. :/

Anyways, Thanks For Stopping By. :D -E

Hi!

I have some serious problems with my Firefox!

First it won't open in any page I want it to. A message appears "Oops! Your tab just ceashed" It wants me to click on the following link: "Restore this tab", but nothing happens when I do it! If I try to click in one of my shortcuts on the top of the page, nothing happens either!

Today I tried to uninstall it, and then go get the latest version, but it won't uninstall! I tried to uninstall it using the Windows (7 Professional) Control Panel, but nothing happens when I click on Unistall Mozilla Firefox!

What else can I do?

Thank you!

Hello,

I'm currently trying to log-in on Postman application. This aplication when log-in button is pressed a tab on firefox is open with the postman site log-in. The trouble comes when trying to re-open the tab on another container. It breaks the log-in. To resolve this I would be interesting to some way to choose an specific or default container for new or incoming tabs.

Ctrl + T no longer opens a new tab, but instead brings me to the third tab I have open. If I have less than 3 tabs open, it either does nothing (for one tab) or brings me to the second/third (for two or three tabs). Other keyboard shortcuts are not glitched like this. Why is this happening and how I can fix it?

I have already reinstalled Firefox and restarted my computer, but neither of those have done anything.

When I close tabs, and the computer stops working and I check the Task manager it turns out that firefox still runs 20-30tabs in the background when most of then have been closed and have just 4 running!!!

This occupies 100% of disk and CPU, and thw laptop stops functioning and freezes!!!!!!

And this happens all the time! How do we make firefox actualy close the tabs properly?? Without having to dig through task managerto close them again one by one?

When I get a list of search results I often select more than one, and I do that by right-click and 'open in new tab'. This has stopped working all of a sudden. I can see Firefox opening a new tab, but it immediately closes it again. Opening in the same tab works fine but not a new tab. How do I fix this? Other than using a browser that doesn't fuck me around of course.

So, I've noticed that if I open a new tab while in full screen (ex: watching a youtube video in full screen) it doesn't automatically select the search bar for me to type in. I know this is a very minor problem, but it really bugs me. Can this be changed from preferences or any other way? Thanks in Advance

Edit: I copied this issue from someone who already raised because this exact thing annoys me too even if it's small one. Is there any solution to this problem?

Firefox has a frustrating habit of closing windows and not restoring them properly. I had 2 windows with a multiple tabs open in each and Firefox will successfully reopen both windows until it doesn't. I tried all the methods with going into history or using the previous.json file in sessionrestore-backups but that file only had 1 window. Now I'm trying to use my browser history to see which websites I visited but all that shows up are the closed tabs - not the windows or the websites I was on before the tab was closed.

Where can I find full browsing information to restore my lost tabs? Alternatively I heard before Firefox updates it creates a snapshot of tabs/windows. How can I access this as a backup?

I dislike Chrome, but it honestly is much better at saving previous sessions.

OS Version: NAME="Fedora Linux" VERSION="36 (Workstation Edition)" Firefox Version: Version 104.0.1 (64-bit) Mozilla Firefox for Fedora fedora - 1.0

Issue: I have "Ctrl+Tab cycles through tabs in recently used order" enabled. When I press(and hold) Ctrl+Tab I don't see the thumbnails of the tabs I'm cycling through.

When I create a new profile (on about:profiles) sometimes I get Thumbnails on Ctrl+Tab, sometimes not. Removing all Addons doesn't have an effect.

Does someone know how I could go about debugging this issue?
