As stated above, Pocket has disappeared from both the Firefox Home Content section and from new tabs, despite all values properly set in the about:config settings. This issue began a few days ago. Any clues on how to fix this?

Thanks very much!

Firefox mysteriously starts closing tabs in the background whenever I'm logged in to my other Mac user profile

Very strange behavior... when I switch from my primary user profile on my mac over to my work one (while leaving the primary one, and Firefox, open), my Firefox tabs start closing in my primary profile in the background, one by one.

And it's directly correlated to amount of time spent in the work profile... if I switch over to the work profile, then switch back a few minutes later, all FF tabs are still there. But if I remain in the work profile for 20+ minutes then switch back, a few tabs will have closed. If I'm in the work profile for hours, when I switch back 10 or 15 tabs will have closed.

I know it's not an add-on issue, because I've tested it while in Safe Mode, and it still happens. I don't even know how to begin troubleshooting this. Anyone have any ideas?

I regularly open links in a new tab to read later, especially for websites that I know will be slow to load (my internet is not great).

For the last couple of months, sometimes when I open a link in a new tab, it loads the link in the tab I'm in in addition to the new tab. If I go to the new tab immediately, wait for it to load the page completely, and then go back to the original tab to continue browsing in that tab, it's fine. If I open the link in a new tab and stay in the original tab to continue browsing further, the original tab will load the link in addition to the new tab so that the link is open in two tabs and the page I was on isn't in any tab. The back button still works, but it is INCREDIBLY annoying.

It doesn't do this on all links, but it consistently does that when I am using my Outlook email via webbrowser, and clicking on a link in the Washington Post email digest to a Washington Post article. For a while I thought it was just some weird thing in the Washington Post emails, but I have noticed it happening on other websites as well, most recently when I was on tumblr and clicked on a gofundme link.

Is this a general Firefox problem? a problem with an extension?

In the latest versions of firefox for PC, the "close other tabs" menu item has been moved to the "close multiple tabs" context menu. This is very inconvenient to use, please return a separate menu item "close other tabs" as it was before, or give the user a choice for setting this parameter.

Firefox opened today with its page, rather than "restoring my previous session:. I notice now that in Options-General I cannot select restore previous session because it and "warn when quitting the browser" are greyed out, leaving "always check firefox is your default browser" as the only item I can select. What has happened?

Hello everyone,

So I am having this issue that I have attempted to fix but when I fix one issue it seems to cause another. So I use MacOS with Firefox as the default browser, both of which are running the latest version. I use SwissCows as the search engine and the problem I encountered was that when I would click on one of the search results, it would open the link in a new tab. As one may imagine, this would get confusing quickly. To fix the issue, I went into advanced preferences and adjusted browser.link.open_newwindow and browser.link.open_newwindow.restriction values to 1 and 0 respectively. It fixed that problem, but now I have a new problem. Certain links from third party email app or log ins from extensions will open in the current tab instead of opening in a new tab.

Any advice or is this just something that I am going to have to learn to deal with?

I have the preference turned on to warn me when quitting the browser with open tabs. However, Firefox asks me if I'm sure I want to quite and close tabs for every tab that I have open (up to about 10, and then it just quits).

When I open Firefox a tab for gmail opens every time, but cannot be closed (there is no "X" on the right side of the tab). Therefore, when browsing in other tabs, gmail is always open. How can I close it, or better yet, remove from my computer? It does not show up in the list of programs on my computer within the Control Panel.

Hello folks,

How about if you remove that extra step to choose the option of closing other tabs. At the moment we have to right click on the tab, choose "Close Multiple Tabs" and then choose the actual option. Because this option is used quite a lot, I think it would be better to see that option as soon as we right click.

Thanks, Marco

Hi,

I lost all my windows and tabs on the latest firefox upgrade and I am trying to restore the session.

I've done this many times in the pat and I know it is as simple as renaming the old session file and moving it, but I never seem to remember exactly what I need to rename and move! I wish there was a simple tool that did this, as I always seem to waste a lot of time trying to remember and figure it out.

Anyway, I found the previous session in the backup session folder . I renamed it: "sessionstore.jsonlz4" and moved it to the main folder - but this didn't work. Actually, whatever happened it erased the file! Fortunately I still have another version of the file backed up.

What do I need to name this file and where do I need to put it so that Firefox will recognize it as a previous session and allow me to load it?

Thank you for your help.

This is on Windows 10 Home Edition 64-bit Since latest update to version 79.0 (64-bit), Firefox is shutting itself down automatically whenever I click to close an active tab and there is only one extra tab open that is an empty “Private Browsing” tab. Before the latest update to version 79.0 (64-bit), Firefox did not shut itself down automatically. The blank “Private Browsing” tab would remain open and Firefox would keep running normally. Thanks for any help.
