Hello guys, this would be a little awkward. Since I've run into this problem a limited number of times and I can't reproduce it. But it does appear frequently and is very annoying. I had to ask here for advice and help.

The device I use is a MacBook, running the official version of Firefox, and as far as I know this problem has been there for at least half a year. I'm used to keyboard operations, usually I use Cmd+T to create a new tab, then the cursor is focused on the address bar, and I type the URL. Since I'm typing an address that I visit often, maybe I just type the first few letters, the URL gets autocompleted, and then I just hit enter and the page opens in my new tab. But sometimes I hit enter twice (eg not English input method). At this time, I noticed that in addition to the URL I wanted to open, there's an additional tab. This tab was blank, or the page I just visit.

From my personal understanding, I may have performed the above operations to create a new tab or clone a tab at the same time. But I don't think my operations will cause these to happen concurrently.

Below are the extensions that I have installed, in my impression I don't get this bug in Windows, but I don't use Windows a lot. In addition, my MacBook keys may be sticky, or it may be a system problem.

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!

After Firefox crashed today I restarted it and I got a session and tabs that I last used over a month ago, and none of the simple fixes worked. But not to worry, I thought, because important folders (including Firefox's Profiles folder) get backed up automatically every night, and just yesterday I reset my "homepage" to include all the currently open tabs. So I thought restoring my session and recovering my open tabs would be a simple matter of replacing current files with backed-up versions of those files. But I can't figure out which files to use or if that strategy is even possible. For example, some of the support materials state that recovery.jsonlz4 in the sessionstore-backups folder gets updated continuously with session and tabs information, but on my system that file abruptly stopped being updated in July. Similarly, previous.jsonlz4 and upgrade.jsonlz4-*** stopped being updated in May. (FYI, sessionstore.jsonlz4 gets created when I close Firefox, just like it's supposed to, but I don't have any backed-up versions of it because it only exists when Firefox is closed.) And the tabs currently listed in the "homepage" are also from a month ago, and I can't figure out what file those tabs are stored in. Help!

But whatever I do, either clicking on the Restore Tab, or trying to open any page, it doesn't do nothing at all, it remains on that page!

Woke up this morning, opened up Firefox and the Trolls have been busy rearranging things during the night. My profile manager disappeared, but I was able to fix that. Now my tabs are out of place and I cannot find what to do to put the Tabs back on bottom, "The way they Should be". Help, please.

Anne,

Also, I am not real computer literate, so draw pictures if necessary.

Hello- When using Firefox 104.0.2 (64-bit) today, I meant to right-click on the bookmarks bar but accidentally right-clicked on the address bar and clicked unclicked "Menu Bar." No big deal, just re-clicked the Menu Bar to bring that back. Unfortunately, at that same time as the initial mistake was made, my entire window bar moved up above the address bar, instead of being directly above content (below address bar) like it had always been. I've read numerous (mostly very old) threads about this being a known issue, and the fix is changing some css coding or something like that (way above my skill level). Plus, those problems all seemed to be triggered by a sofrware update. This was not during any sort of software update. It was during use, and seemed evidently trigger by that mis-click. Any suggestions? Thanks!

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.

Although I had long ago selected "Open Previous Windows and Tabs" in Start-Up, my windows and tabs were not restored when I inadvertently quit Firefox this morning and restarted. I then went to the three horizontal bar Application Menu > History to look for "restore previous session", but that button was missing.

So I have two questions: 1. Why didn't my selected preference, "open Previous Windows and Tabs " at Start-Up work? Is there a fix? 2. What has happened to my "restore previous session button in the History tab of the Application Menu, upper right of toolbar? Has Firefox deleted the "restore previous session" button? Can I reinstall it in some way?

I'll be grateful for advice. Thank you

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.

On some websites (namely, twitter), middle clicking a post opens it in a new tab. However, whenever this happens, the new tab is always focused, is there a way to prevent this from happening?

This does not occur on websites such as Youtube.com, where middle clicking a video opens it in a new tab, but does not focus it. This is the preferred result.

Likewise, when middle clicking a bookmark, the newly created tab is also immediately focused. Is this preventable aswell?

Thank you for your time.

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?
