I've installed firefox on my new mac to match my desktop pc a little better. It works smoothly on desktop, but on this mac it seems to be nothing but trouble. Every time I reset my macbook I have to login to firefox manually, and then I'm faced with all my top sites missing. It's been mitigated slightly by adding bookmarks to my highlights page, but I'd still like to not login every time I reset. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

If I shutdown my computer while Firefox is open, it will start up automatically with all of my previous tabs open next time I turn on my computer. It does this faster than my VPN can start up, thus exposing my true IP to what ever sites I had open when I turned off my computer. Is there any way to make it so that Firefox doesn't do this?

When I right click on a link and choose "open in new tab" or highlight text and do a search from the context menu, can I set my preferences or about:config so that browser does not jump to the new tab immediately? In other words, I want to stay on the page I'm on and have the new link tab load in the background. I hope I have explained this adequately. Thanks.

Whenever I load a website, there is a brief left-to-right blue streak across the tab when that website loads. I would prefer to not have this, it's not matchy with anything else on my desktop and I find the animation distracting.

It doesn't seem to be connected to any of my add-ons. I'm using the Firefox Light theme. Is this just a theme thing, and I should get a different one? Or is there a way to get this to stop.I checked about:config and past forum discussions and didn't see anything obvious. Thank you!

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.

Since I upgraded to version 77.0.1, my startup tabs don't function properly. I have Gmail, Facebook, and Google Calendar as my 3 tabs but Gmail no longer loads. I just get a blank tab. I have to manually type in the URL to get gmail to load. After manually typing in https://mail.google.com/mail/u/0/#inbox and bringing up gmail, I went back to settings and set Use Current Pages but that didn't help.

These are the settings in Options, Home: https://mail.google.com/mail/u/0/#inbox|https://www.facebook.com/?sk=h_chr|https://calendar.google.com/calendar/r?tab=mc

Any ideas? These have been my 3 startup tabs for a very long time!

Hi, I had lost around 25 tabs because I opened Firefox from the 'Private Window'. So this is how it happened. First I opened normal Firefox with all the tabs intact. Then I opened a private window and closed the main Firefox. Then from the private Firefox I opened a new window and all the tabs were gone.

I thought they were just gone in that particular window but when I restarted Firefox again but all the tabs were really gone. Since I had cleared all the history earlier I couldn't recover them.

In Opera this doesn't happen. When I open a normal Opera window from incognito mode, it too opens a window without all the tabs, but all the tabs are restored once I restart Opera again.

Is there a way to not lose tabs.

Regards

When I create a new tab I no longer get a search block in the centre of the page in addition to the one at the top of the screen. How can I restore this feature.

How do I hide tabs title in Firefox. It is a feature I really like in Chrome : when you have a lot of tabs, the only info that remains in the tab is the favicon. In Firefox we get a useless 4 letters title and it takes a lot of space in the tab bar for no added UX/UI benefit (I still need to mouseover the tab to know the title, and this is fine by me, I just want to reclaim the useless space to display more tabs).

Hi guys!

I have the following problem: 2 days ago I viewed a Youtube video. After viewing it I closed that tab. Since then I have watched countless other Youtube videos, each time closing the tab once I viewed it. However, every time I start my Firefox after firing up my laptop this particular Youtube video that I watched 2 days ago is running in a tab.

Can someone please help me get rid of this?
