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.

Until the most recently Firefox update (7/1/20), when I clicked in my address bar, it would drop down and show the web sites I visited most frequently. Now, when I click in the address bar, it shows a bunch of random websites, some of which I only visited once a long time ago. How do I get the drop down menu back to how it was before the update? Thanks.

when there's an open private window and you close the non private window first , all the tabs are closed and when you open firefox again all tabs are cleared and just a new tab is open

this is not desired behavior I guess and i've lost all the open tabs multiple times this way because sometimes private windows remain left open in another desktop or just minimized (and you shutdown the PC or just close the Firefox and all the tabs are gone!).

is there any settings for this ? if not then this is a bug report I guess

I want each new tab to go the Google search page. Why can't I do this?

As it is, in the 'new tab' settings, there's a grand total of just TWO choices - either Firefox's home page, or a blank page. Seriously, is that it??

Grateful for any assistance...

Hello, I'd like to open url links clicked from any program in a private tab. Firefox is my default browser. Links open in new tab, which is okay. I browse in private mode all of the time, but clicking links opens in normal tab, then it cashes the content, cashes history etc. Most of the stuff (from for example discord) is a one time thing, silly and probably even useless stuff.

Is there a possible way to force windows10 to use "firefox.exe -private" as the default handler to open firefox ? I don't really mind if it opens a new window instead of new tab as long as it remains private.

Thank You for Your time.

Hi, Currently, it is possible to close tab only from line of Tabs on the top of the window. Unfortunately in this view, it is impossible to see the long name of Tab (in case if you have tens of it) and the user should open each Tab before close it. Would you add functionality to close Tabs from the Tabs dropdown list ( just add X at the right side of each line) or add some Tab Manager view (as you have for Bookmarks) with same close Tab function?

Thank you.

When I am on a Firefox webpage and it site says something like "Click Here" to open a how to file or a pfd or a statement to print...those types of things. Once I click on the button Firefox starts to open new tabs, one after another. It never stops. I end up shutting down Firefox before it finishes. I counted 55 new tabs at one point. But, the new material never shows up either! Any suggestions?

This question was asked a few months ago and is archived now. It gave a detailed explanation of how to make the tab text bold. I followed the instructions carefully, but it did not work. Maybe this method doesn't work in the current version of Firefox (77.0.1 as of this writing)? The solution involved adding to or creating a userChrome.css file, which I did (the answer also referenced the filename "userContent.css", which I also tried without success).

The solution said to create a css file that contained this text:

#TabsToolbar .tabbrowser-tab .tab-content {
  font-weight: 800 !important;
}

put it in a folder named "chrome" in the user profile folder, and then restart Firefox, which I did, but it had no effect.

Anyone have another solution, perhaps that works with a later version of Firefox? Thanks much.

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?

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).
