Holding Ctrl + W / Ctrl + T performs close/open tab action successively instead of performing it once.

Is it a bug or a design decision. I mean if I have a lot of opened tabs and I intend to close just one tab, then a slight delay in releasing the key combination would result in closing rest of the tabs. Shouldn't it be like Press and Release key combination to perform the corresponding action which would ensure the action is performed just once. That is what it was like on Chrome and Edge.

This has been happening over the last month or so. I'll be browsing with multiple tabs open and then for no apparent reason a few of my tabs will just close themselves. I'm not clicking on anything or using any shortcuts. Without any input on my part a group of maybe 3 or 4 tabs just suddenly close themselves, while the rest of my tabs remain. It doesn't seem to matter what pages the tabs are open to: google, amazon, whatever... Anybody have any ideas what's causing this? I've already tried updating, restarting, and disabling add-ons.

I regularly have 4 to 6 pinned tabs open, but would still like to be able to open my regular tabs with the `cmd+1–9` shortcuts. Is there a way to configure Firefox to use a different shortcut for the pinned tabs? It would be great to be able to have something like `cmd+option+1–9` be the pinned tabs, with `cmd+1–9` be the regular tabs.

Firerox properties target field filled up with URLs (having FF open preset tabs)

HI everyone, On my desktop, I have a Firefox shortcut that has a bunch of tinyurl in the target field that opens a load of tabs for me.

Other desktop firefox shortcuts open the browser normally on my homepage.

The problem is, the target field isn't big enough, there's only room for 5 tinyurls. Or to be exact, any after the first 5 are ignored. Really, I need more, as many as 10. Is there another way of achieving this?

Note that I want this to be applied to a single Firefox desktop shortcut, so I can have one shortcut open the brower 'preloaded' with these tabs and another shortcut that opens the browser normally.

Thanks

Paul

I cannot fathom why Firefox doesn't have the drop-down list of open windows/tabs, is in some kind of rational order. This is crazy, as it could easily be in either chronological or alphabetical order! Hunting all over the list, every time I want to find a particular tab is hugely frustrating and time consuming...

I opened a recipe tabs weeks ago and for the past week it keeps opening back up every time I open FF. It doesn't replace any tabs that I have open already, it just opens a new tab and it is there, stalking me, every time I open the browser. I can't get it to STOP popping up. Help!!!

Open a new tab while on a container-ed tab & have the new tab in that container

I absolutely love the new containers feature of Firefox. Well done, FF crew!

One feature request: when I'm on, say, a tab in my Work container and I do a Cmd-T to create a new tab, I'd like to have that tab open in whatever container I was on -- so in this example, the new tab would open in the Work container. I know there's an menu item to open a tab in a specific container, but this would make it 2 steps faster. Is this already possible?

A number of websites constantly crash on Firefox on my home office computer. I can open them on the home office computer with Chrome. I can open them using my Firefox synced account on another computer in the house.

I can only open the websites in safe mode. I completely reinstalled Firefox using Revo-uninstaller, reinstalled, and tried to open the websites without syncing my account and they crashed so I guess this eliminates my sync ID as the problem and any add-ons since there were not any after the Revo-uninstall.

I'm using Windows 10 64-bit with 16 GB RAM and the latest version of Firefox with Bitdefender antivirus. I deactivated all add-ons and plug-ins and still it crashes.

I did a full scan with bitdefender and malware bytes and found no threats with either. I optimized the hard drive. I turned off hardware acceleration.

Lost all open tabs, unsure why this has happened

I had a whole bunch of tabs that had been open for quite some time on my browser that I was planning to go through. I have my browser set to restore tabs / previous session each time I open so all the previous tabs remain there, and have had no problems for a long time. However the last time I tried to close Firefox it gave a warning saying I was trying to close x amount of tabs. I thought it a bit strange considering it hadn't asked me this before when closing but didn't think anything of it and closed the browser, only to open it next time to find all my open tabs had gone rather than being restored as normal.

I hadn't knowingly changed any of my settings and its still set to 'Restore previous session', and I can't work out a) why it hasn't restored it and b) what changed to prompt it to ask me if I wanted to close my tabs and then remove them rather than what it has always done!
