Bug report.

After upgrade to Firefox 16 this morning. Any time I close multiple tabs I get a Confirm Close dialog box. Checked or unchecked the "Warn me when closing multiple tabs" under General in the Options has no effect. It always prompts me to confirm close.

I have seven saved tabs that open each time I start Firefox. But sometimes 2 or three of these saved tabs open as "new tab". But if I close Firefox and immediately reopen it, all the tabs will open as desired. This happens 2 or three times a week, but not always. I am running Firefox on an HP laptop with Windows 7 operating system. Web connection is thru a cable company. Where should I look first for a solution?

I typically keep a lot of tabs open on my firefox browser and seem to have now lost them — a HUGE problem for me as its become a critical way for me to save and return to ongoing research.

whenever I quit FF I usually restore previous session immediately on opening back up the program but I must have spaced on doing that this last time since I was juggling a lot of other work/ calls at that moment, had to shut down my laptop and leave (only to find now when I am re-opening it that all those tabs are gone. Either that or there is a bug preventing me from opening a previous session.

Bottom line: its no big deal if I could just restore a session from say one day ago and then reconstruct whatever tabs I'd added since by looking through my history, but that doesnt seem to be an option.

I have seen posts of people trying to do something like this on PCs but I was afraid to try that any of that on a Mac for obvious reasons.

Does anyone know if what I am looking for is possible for Macs and if so could you please explain?

Fingers crossed and trying not to freak out too much,

Sam

I finally had to abandon version 56.2 because it wasn't working right (although now I wonder if version 66 will work any better). I need more than one tab row -- having tabs scroll out of sight just doesn't work for me. If I can't have that, then I want the ability to make the tabs narrower so I can get more of them on one row.

Why doesn't Firefox have these features by default? Why do they keep "upgrading" it and leaving out logical features? Upgrades usually mean MORE FUNCTIONALITY, but I'm not seeing that with Firefox.

Regarding the tab rows, please don't refer me to Github. I have no idea what to do with raw code. I need an extension. Thank you.

I update BitTorrent to the latest version today and after that my search bar on the top right changed from Google to "Conduit Search" That was easily fixed with two clicks but for some reason it also changed what happens when I open a new tab from the default new tab page with the pinned book marks to this: http://i.imgur.com/dmU463W.png

I looked up some stuff to help and found the information on "about:config" to change the "browser.newtab.url" value to "about:newtab" however when I attempt to do that I get the window that is supposed to come up prompting me to input the new value, I put in the value and nothing changes, it remains with this Conduit Search stuff. Closing Firefox afterwards does not fix the problem and I have tried the process several times to make sure it was not just a one time bug. It also does not work for any value as leaving it blank or changing it to "about:blank" did not solve the issue.

So the new tab page of Firefox, used to have 15 quicklink tiles. However at random last night, it decided to go to 10. I cannot find how to set it back to 15. This is quite annoying as I use these websites often, is there any way to fix or set how many are displayed? As currently they only appear when the zoom setting is set to 80%. Which I cannot read anything at.

Not even an exaggeration. It's only 9 pm and I've already submitted over 80 crashes for today alone.

For Hardware Acceleration, I've tried to disable and enable and disable it again with no change. I tried to read around and turned on "Prevent accessibility services from accessing your browser" as well, hearing that some people have tried that with results. I do not have an actively scanning antivirus running, nor firewall. I had this issue before the upgrade to Quantum. I did a completely clean upgrade in hopes of fixing it, and I'm still having issues. Daily. It's been ongoing for several months at this point.

Here's some of the IDs of the last reports: 10 each. Unsubmitted reports:

I had approximately 200 tabs grouped in approximately 30 groups in Firefox 31.0 (latest version). The grouping showed up when I clicked the icon on the left of the "minimize" button or pressed CTRL+SHIFT+E. It is called "Firefox - Group Your Tabs". I also use Xmarks, but I turned off tab synchronization recently.

Usually all the tabs and their groups were saved when I closed Firefox. Today I opened Firefox and all the tabs and groups were gone! Instead there opens some search engine called Trovi (www.trovi.com) with "Results by bing". Its the same in Chrome, Opera and IE.

My OS is Windows 8.1 Update 1 with all updates installed. My antivirus is Avast! with all updates installed. There must have been some malware installed obviously, but I didnt get any alert. I have run a "Complete system test" in Avast! with latest updates, which is the most in-depth scan I know (without restaring my laptop HP ProBook 4730s). No virus has been found.

I am suspecting a program called "Search Protect" version 2.16.10.61 from "Client Connect LTD". It has been installed along with PowerISO 6.0 x64.

I tried to run System Restore, but it seems all the restore points I have ever created are deleted now! I discovered this by opening System Properties -> System Protection -> System Restore. However "Protection" is "On" for my system drive.

How can I restore my tabs and groups? It is extremely important to me.

Since today, Firefox crashes every time without fail if I open a new tab (either using keyboard shortcut or the new tab button). This more or less makes firefox unusable. I tried to reinstall but didnt work. I also attempted to disable all addons. I'm not sure if I have to uninstall a plugin?

Note: Opening an link from another page does not result in a crash.
