Keyboard shortcut Alt+1 doesn't switch to first tab, but it works normally with other numbers

I got extremely used to switching between tabs with Ctrl+(number) when I was on Windows, and now this feature is kind of broken for me on Linux. I have checked and can confirm that I don't have a shortcut already set to this key binding, so there is no conflicting going on.

The weird thing is that I am able to use all the other numbers (2-9) with no problem, and they work as intended. If anyone knows how to fix this problem, I'll be happy to hear the solution.

I lost all my tabs recently & wanted to restore them. The advice via Help topic was to click the 3 horizontal lines, click history & then click "restore previous session" However I do not have that selection. I have the other shown but not restore previous session. I do have the latest version of FF & am on chrome. I was able to restore my tabs one at a time, but in the future I would like the ability to easily restore the whole session. Thanks for any suggestions.

Searching for open tabs among many windows needs improvement

Currently using FF v94.0.1 64-bit (I usually lag an update or two behind to ensure stability -- my highest priority -- and avoid surprises.)


1) I notice that unless there are a sufficient number of tabs opened across a browser window as stretched to a given width, thus triggering the left-right ("<" , ">") tab-scroll arrows to appear, the TAB MENU itself (aka "List all tabs" button, a "v" down-arrow on the far right) is not present. Nor is there an equivalent way to initiate a tab search within the main MENU BAR (FILE, EDIT, VIEW, etc.) that I could find. This restricts access to the SEARCH TABS feature.

This "automatically keep-it-tidy feature" is not really an issue when only a single browser window is open. However, I have many windows (on different topics of interest), each with many tabs.

I can switch to another browser window that has enough open tabs to have triggered the TAB MENU, then search from there. Or I can use the address bar "%" method).

(Actually, I'm pleasantly surprised that Firefox, running on my older PC, is stable with hundreds of tabs open as accumulated over many months. Clearly I should change my habits!)


2) On your support page titled "Search open tabs in Firefox" at https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/search-open-tabs-firefox , it describes (via examples) using the "List all tabs"/TAB MENU button to access the "Search Tabs" feature. It also outlines using the address bar "%" method.

Unless I misread the article, what it does not make clear, is that the "Search Tabs" feature works the same as "% xyz" in the address bar; whereas using "%xyz" (note the missing space) yields different results (apparently the same as "xyz %"; but "xyz%" yields nothing). Nor does it explain the reason for the different results or the importance/desirability/weirdness of using one method over the other -- it simply presents the examples. I believe this help page could use some expansion/clarification.


3) I noticed that when performing "search tabs" via either the address bar (using "%") or via the TAB MENU, the results do not include any open tabs using "containers" (apparently the same as any open tabs within "private" windows).

I am increasingly using the "container" features by opening then permanently assigning many "sensitive" web sites to one of the container categories. The increased security is a nice idea.

However, with many browser windows open, each with many tabs, this inability to search for and conveniently find open tabs is increasingly frustrating and is nudging me back towards NOT using containers.

Can't some solution be found to maintain the privacy between tabs (and perhaps even private windows) while permitting a tab search to work more thoroughly?


In summary, I simply want to be able to find ALL occurrences of any partial string of searched-for text within ALL tabs in either their title OR address, normal AND container tabs, and preferably in normal AND private windows.

At present I see only a list of 12 results and no means of listing more. Sometimes my "known" open (normal/non-container) tab is not present in that short list (perhaps a preference/sort order is needed for tab titles vs. addresses).

Why not a "List more results", or a selector button to scroll-list "10, 20, 40, 100, ALL", or a button to open and continue with a listing of ALL matching results in a separate pop-up window, etc?


Thanks for all your good and hard work!

I work with salesforce and got a MacBook Pro a few days ago and now I worked in some chart and wanted to switch between Columns with the tab button but It won’t work. I always have to click the next column with the mouse. This is taking a lot of time and with a windows pc, I works totally normal. But know I’m really confused what to do. Because when I press the tab button I only goes to the forward and back button and so on

I need so use Firefox as salesforce only works perfectly fine with Firefox. In safari i can switch like with a windows computer

Can someone please help me?

Thank you in advance!!
