Hi all,

After a recent update to firefox I didn't like the premade colour themes, so I made my own. There is one thing that bothers me though, and I'm not sure how to change it: As you can see in the attached image, the tab I'm currently on has a clear distinct colour. However, all the unselected tabs have the same colour as the background. I find it annoying that this makes unselected tabs harder to spot, and makes it harder to see where one tab begins and the other ends. It is minor, but it annoys me. Does anyone know a way (either via settings or the add-on firefox color) for me to make the unselected tabs stand out from the background?

Thanks in advance.

(firefox version 89.0 64 bit)

My browser opens new links in new tabs. I want them to open new links in the same tab.

Others inquire about the same issue get a response saying:;

"Did you try it? Some sites add a target="_blank" attribute to links. Links with these attributes are supposed to open in a new window when left clicked. However, Firefox by default opens these links in a new tab in the current window. By setting browser.link.open_newwindow to 1, these links will instead open in the current tab/window."

I need step-by-step help understanding what I need to do to set the browser are suggested in the above response.

Hi,

Just got version 89.0 installed. And I totally don't like what happened to the tabs. They are visually disconnected from the page they belong to and transformed to some kind of buttons (at least when selected. When not slected only the caption is visible) . I cannot even imagine why such a useless change is done, but in terms of UI design this is not a good step. It makes things less clear.

I would like to have to old tabs back, but cannot find a theme which can do this.

Is there a setting with which I can set to old tabstyle back?

Thnx

I rely on the previous sessions being restored after (the more and more frequent) updates for my work, as I usually need to keep track of many tabs.

Is there a way to save and restore all the currently opened tabs across multiple browser instances? (WITHOUT sharing this outside my computer!)

If you're going to tell me it does this 'automatically' well, yes, it usually does, except for the times when it doesn't.

Hi! I do Duolingo on a daily basis. Many/most of the tasks comes with audio, and then... the tab changes size - to show a "Playing". A short time after the sound has stopped, it will change back. I react every time, and it is very disturbing. I really don't need to have such information in the tab/window, because I usually/always hear when Firefox is presenting sounds. I want to find somewhere to turn that "notification" off. Is that possible?

Hello,

I just installed the new update. The new tab design is totally confusing/unclear to me. Especially the fact that the new tabs don't have a "seperator-line" to the next tab. Thats totally disturbing to me. It's really difficult for me to keep the overview about my normally around 60 tabs now. Is there an option to switch back to the old tabs look and feel? Are there other options to customize the look of the tab bar?

Thanks in advance and Greetz!

With the latest upgrade the tabs look nasty and just icon with name of the tab - no border. How can I get them looking like they used to look prior to the upgrade, please?

Another question is why after an upgrade do my settings for a new tab to open automatically to Google with the cursor in the search box get removed. Is there a way to get it right and save it so it remains with each upgrade. I don't like searching in the address bar.
