Firefox was hanging up. I got frustrated and I ended the session using task manager. On restart my windows came back, but the tabs were missing the page information. I ended the firefox session again, and did a restart of windows for good measure, hoping to get everything restored.

Then, when windows restarted, I restarted firefox, and I was presented two options - SAFE MODE, or REFRESH. I did SAFE MODE. Things looked ok, so I ended that session, and tried restarting again, hoping to restart normally, without SAFE MODE on. I got the same two options again - SAFE MODE or REFRESH. So, I thought REFRESH would get me back to my prior session. Nope. That reloaded a bunch of things, like bookmarks, etc. and gave me a new session.

So, I looked under the three line menu. No ability to RESTORE PREVIOUS SESSION!

I also looked in my profile as found in ABOUT:SUPPORT - PROFILE FOLDER, and in my SESSIONSTORE-BACKUPS folder in my profile folder my RECOVERY.baklz4, and my RECOVERY.jsonlz4 have todays date as DATE MODIFIED, but only are 33kb each - way to small for the hundreds of tabs I had open in multiple windows - I believe.

So, do I have any other recovery session folders available that I might be able to use?

New Tabs and even sometimes first tab do not load any page and become just "dead"

Open in New Tab and Ctr T is like a roll of dice now, the same page sometimes loads sometimes doesn't, usually closing FF and re-opening solves it.

This has been happening quite frequently so I tried several builds and solutions, uninstalled and reinstalled with new profile, safe mode, no add-ons or themes, both 32 and 64 bit, ESR, etc.. (I'm on Win10 64 bit)

If anyone is experiencing something similar or have an idea let me know please I've been using Firefox for longer than I remember and I would hate to switch now

In the new version of the Developer Edition the options "close tabs to the right" and "close other tabs" are in a sub-menu named "Close Multiple Tabs" inside the context menu. Is there's a way to change this so that they will appear directly in the main context menu? I use "close tabs to the right" often and I find this very annoying.

I am using Firefox 76 on Ubuntu 18.04 LTS and sometimes after I do a system restart or shutdown, the previous session I had disappears . I am using the Tab Group Manager add-on and have the restore previous session option enabled, yet it still happens. Any ideas on how to solve this or if it will be patched?

Thanks,

I closed Firefox browser on my computer completely today, when all my tabs were still open. Usually, if I do that and then open Firefox again, it restores all my tabs automatically.

I want to avoid that to prevent other people using my computer from seeing my tabs, but I don't currently have access to my computer, only my phone.

In other words, I want to disable my previously open tabs from opening when Firefox is opened.

Here is what I did: 1. Signed in with Firefox on my phone 2. Synced 3. Deleted history 4. Went to *phone* browser settings and chose not to restore tabs (in settings - advanced).

Would that be enough or is there something else I can do?

Thank you.

hi, i got a new computer and I was customizing Firefox but the one thing I can't figure out is it keeps loading old tab when closed and a new Firefox window was started. My Startup home page is set to a newspaper

I've looked thru options and troubleshooting and can't find something that works. I have unchecked everything under tabs in options. I'm running Windows 10 with all the updates and the latest Firefox.

I have avoided upgrading to the latest Firefox for over a year now because new versions always move the tabs back to the top of the browser window. But this time when Firefox reloaded it upgraded itself and I had no choice. I was a graphic artist for decades, and it makes no sense to have the tabs all the way at the top, because your eye has to jump up to the top, away from the window itself, every time you want to move between tabs. It makes no sense, but so far Firefox has ignored these complaints (I'm not the only one) and has not offered a simple toggle in preferences or somewhere to move the tabs where they should IMO be.

I seem to have lost the instructions to do my own coding to move the damn things, and I would really appreciate if someone could tell me how I can move them back where they belong. And Firefox, PLEASE. People have been requesting this for several years now that I'm aware of, so PLEASE make this simple change and allow users the choice of how their browser windows should look.

I am trying to restore the tabs from a crashed session. I have successfully done this in the past by renaming the lost session in the sessionstore-backups folder, but this is no longer working for me. I have the session file I need, but even when I rename it, when I reopen firefox it keeps reverting to the most recent session which has none of my tabs. I have tried deleting every file in the sessionstore folder except the one I want firefox to use, but it will not use it; it overwrites it every time with the more recent session. How can I get firefox to load the session file I want? Thanks for your help

Formerly, one could reorder tabs in a Firefox browser window by clicking and dragging. One could also click and hold a tab and move it to create a new window or take a tab from one window, click and drag it to another window. I am no longer able to do this on my Mac laptop, after updating to Firefox 71. I can't seem to find a special setting in Firefox 71. Is there one or a way to allow tab movement? Or do I need to revert to the previous version of Firefox?

As long as Firefox has added the containers feature in the last updates, the actual behavior of the new tab button needs to be updated, or at least configurable. If you're in a specific container, new tab opens a no-container tab. I believe this should be the actual container of the active tab, instead of a no-container.

Used to be able to move a tab into a different window by dragging it there. No longer works (Win 7, FF75 and now 76) despite your help article that says to do just this--so how can I do this? I'm trying to consolidate a bunch of tabs currently in their own windows, into just one window which will hold all the tabs on a related subject.
