When I open a new tab and then search, and then try to search with google then search option does not provide me results. or if I try to even open google through the tab, Firefox does not provide me any results. This started happening recently. I have tried clearing the cache and cookies and the issue resolves for a bit and then starts again. I even have removed and tried a fresh install of firefox and I am still seeing the same results. I need help as this is getting annoying.

Hello My desktop Firefox (iMac) did an automatic update and now I have the floaty tab redesign and I intensely dislike it. Is there a way to make the tabs look like how they did before? I am so unhappy. It's ugly and I can't tell the tabs apart very well (they have no dividing graphics). I am this close ---><--- to Time Machining myself back to the previous Firefox version. Help? Thanks Elizabeth

I run FF on both a Windows machine and a MacBook Pro. On the MBP the browser does not save my tabs, despite "restore previous session" being selected. I do not have this problem on the Windows machine.

I have tried uninstalling and reinstalling the browser but it has not made a difference.

I'm running the latest version of the browser and the OS is Big Sur.

With today's Firefox update, the edges of the tabs, that allow me to visually distinguish between the multiple tabs that I always have open, disappeared. Now, it is only the font/text that is visible when looking at my browser's multiple tabs. The edges have disappeared, only showing up as a faint shadow when I hover the pointer over a tab. And depending on the name listed on the tab, this makes it very difficult to distinguish one tab from another. This change to the way that Firefox looks is making it difficult for me to maneuver between tabs, and get my work done.

I tried changing colours, as well as the different themes, but in all cases, the edges remain invisible. Attached is a screen image of the different colour/themes, showing that in every case, the edges of the tabs remain invisible.

Is there a way to bring the edges back into view? Thank you in advance for your assistance.

Hello Mozilla Community,

While selecting all my tabs to move some of them to another window, I misclicked and it opens them all twice.

Immediately after I made the mistake to accept closing what I thought was the doublons, but instead it closed them all except for the few doublons remaining.

There were many important tabs opened months ago, that's why I'm asking help.

I don't know what happened but I found this thread (https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1310742) and followed some of the steps.

I managed to recover the recovery_backlzk4 in excellent state from around twenty minutes before the problem, and tried to read the URLs from it with this person's tool: https://www.jeffersonscher.com/ffu/scrounger.html

It did not work, so I don't know what to do.

Can someone explain me if there is still something to do about it or not?

Thank you very much

My firefox updated to the (horrible) new tabs, and now there's an incredibly annoying black line that appears over my Facebook tab that I can't find any way to get rid of. What does this mean? What is it for? How do I kill this stupid thing? With the (terrible) way the new tabs distinguish between the active tab and the inactive tabs (basically just a slightly different, nearly indistinguishable shade of off-white), this black bar is the most striking visual element on my row of tabs, so it grabs the eye the way the active tab should, and it's confusing and distracting.

Hi,

I'm using Firefox 89.0 (64 bit) on Lubuntu OS via Mozilla Firefox for Ubuntu Canonical - 1.0.

Despite selecting Restore previous session in settings, and quitting firefox using Ctrl-Q, firefox does not restore the previously open tabs. I have to click on history -> Restore previous session for the tabs to load.

This issue started recently. Please fix the bug.

Thanks, Ajit

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?

Did firefox just make the forward and back navigation buttons useless because firefox is going to open a new page or tab every time we click on anything?

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!

How can we remove the "New Tab" option when right clicking a tab? I find this feature absolutely useless as there's already and "+" tab button to create a new tab. I used to be able to reload tabs easily and quickly by Right-Click tab, Left-Click and the Reload option was selected. NOW, I have to move the mouse down to the Reload option, or press the "R" key on the keyboard. Simple things, yes, but something that is easily annoying if it's added when it's not needed and having to change the way we use the browser. What would of been nicer is that "Pinned" tabs would always be pinned, regardless if that window was the last to be closed or not.

I have my Firefox settings to open search results links in a new tab. I can get this to happen with Google, but I *rarely* use it. I prefer Bing. My settings are for links to open in a new tab, and they won't do that with Bing.

I have read what others have suggested about fixing this problem. I made changes in about:config with no result. I opened in Firefox safe mode and didn't find anything on my own. Will check out any tips though.

This has only recently become an issue. I know that Ads have always opened in the same tab and I do not care to right-click or use ctrl.

Another issue I suddenly had with the latest new design update was that when I used the Bing search box, it started switching to an address bar search. I was able to fix that.

Anyone know a sure cure?

I don't now what happened but my tab bar has a different look to it now. Possible a Firefox update changed the look of my tab bar, but nonetheless, it is now harder to see the tab bar. It seems to have a more transparency look to it making it harder to see the tabs. How do I change the tab bar look to what it used to look like, which was easier to see? Can someone help? Thank you.

Last time Firefox updated, I managed to find information online about moving the website tabs so they were below the bookmarks instead of at the top of the screen. It was a huge pain-in-the-butt to do.

After a recent re-install, the tabs have moved themselves back to the top of the screen and nothing I do seems to be able to move them back below the bookmarks.

Is there a way I can move the tabs that doesn't involve spending hours hunting through posts on the web, changing hidden Firefox settings, and recoding .css files?

If not, why do you not give the option to move the tabs wherever the user wants? Especially when it makes far more sense to have the website tabs directly above the website being viewed, at least in my opinion?

I'm currently using Firefox 85.0.2 (64-bit).
