The tabs on one of my Firefox windows got really small. Very small and very annoying when trying to click on one tab. I don't know how it happened, and I can't find a way to change them back. I did the usual stuff: rebooted the PC, closed Firefox and restarted, closed that one window and opened it again. No change in the situation. I didn't open, or close, any new tabs on that window. Like a little kid would say: "It was like that when I got here!"

I've seen the threads on minimum tab size and such, but I don't think that will help me, because the tabs in the other windows haven't changed.

I've attached some pictures to illustrate the relative sizes of the tabs. The one with larger tabs is from a crowded window, the one with smaller is from the window I'm complaining about. They were normal size, now they aren't. Help! Please?

I have noticed since the last update, when I click on a new tab in a window that is older and has about 6 or more, the new location will just spin and not connect. If I open a brand new window, or go to another browser, the location is fine and comes up quickly. I have cleared the cache but I do not want to do this everytime I get into an older browser window. Anyone else see this? This is very definitive and has just started happening.

Greetings: My computer was shutdown and restarted by a colleague and I seem to have lost my browsing history and all the open tabs from my last session are not retrievable — restore previous session is not available / appears grey'd out. I am on a macbook pro running Big Sur and I do have a time machine backup of that last session — can I get back those open tabs and browser history from my time machine? Can I do it a la carte or do I need to wipe my whole computer and restore from there? Thanks in advance for your thoughts, Sam

I have no extensions/addons/themes installed and even restarted in safe mode, I also fiddled with the toolbars but to no avail. Thanks.

I'm currently on firefox developer edition with the system theme. I've just now upgraded to latest version (v. 89.0b3 64 bit).

Everything is fine except the tab title of the current tab. The color is right but the shape is wrong. It should be rectangular but instead all four corners are rounded. Moreover, it's not connected to the rest of the page so there is a gap between the background color of the current tab (grey) and the background color of the page (black) making the whole thing look like it's floating around the browser space (see attached screenshot).

I've also noted that the top bar, the ones containing the title tabs and the main icons (close, enlarge, minimize) has become huge!

So my questions are:

- Is there a way to have rectangular tab titles again? If not possible through options, is there an add-on I can use? I search the add-ons page but the themes I found are for changing colors, they do nothing for the shape of the tabs. - How can I shrink the top bar?

Thanks

I have several tabs. Last I closed a bunch I was over 200, so it's a bit annoying when I start Firefox to do something, and randomly it'll start up the tab(s) of Facebook I have among the many.

It doesn't matter what tab I was on when I exited Firefox last, Facebook will be loaded without fail. I tried it several times with different sites, and I never exited with Firefox being the page I was on last.

Often my tab list on the top will be scrolled over (not by me, it happens when the Facebook tab loads) and I will have to scroll back to find the currently open page's tab. (The loaded page, whatever I was on last is on the screen, no problem with that.)

Anyway, I could list several reasons why this is a nuisance, but the thing is: I do not know why this is happening, it is disruptive, so I wish to understand the problem and stop it from happening.

This has persisted throughout several versions of Firefox, so I do not think it has to do with updates, but I do have the Facebook Container and F.B Purity addons.

The use-case where this happens most for me is when I want to open two different email inboxes at once:

  • I type "mail" into the search bar in a new tab.
  • The autocomplete suggestions show from my history the two email inboxes.
  • I middle click one of the links
  • Firefox opens the link in a new tab, I am still focused on the new tab (this is wanted), but the search bar is cleared, and I must now type "mail" again to bring up the suggestions again.

The previous browser I used did not do this, and coming over from that browser it makes it quite annoying to have to type "mail" twice. I do not want to put the links into bookmarks and access them that way.
