So, despite selecting "Allow Audio and Video" in the Site Preferences, "AUTOPLAY BLOCKED" continues to show on a tab, and it only goes away once I access the tab. This particularly happens on Youtube media.

You may find attached to this question an image of my about:config settings.

What further can be done to fix this?

In settings, Start-up, I have the box checked for: "open previous windows and tabs" but it doesn't work. In order to do my work I need the 23 tabs I currently have open to show up again after a reboot of the browser or computer. What gives? How long will it take to get this corrected? Please give me help. Thanks, Mark

I've tried everything and read all the instructions but none work.

I want to select multiple Tabs from a bookmark folder to open in the background.

On Chrome this used to be quite easy: Just open the Dropdown, click whichever tabs you wanted to open with the Mousewheel and done.

On Firefox you need to enable new tabs to open in Background first. I managed to find the setting for that with google after a while. You need to go to advanced settings by typing about:config into your url bar.

Then you search for browser.tabs.loadBookmarksInBackground and click "enable".

But this didn't fix the other issue I had, that the dropdown menu always closes as soon as I click anything.

Is there a way so it stays open until I'm done selecting the pages I want?

Your previous reply message to me is below at the bottom of this reply. My answers are inside your reply.

I tried to reply to you yesterday from the help site on FF, however on the last word, I misspelled that word, I attempted to correct it, it should have been easy enough because it was the last letter on the last word, I put my curser at the end of the last word and as I tried remove that letter, BOOM, the whole message disappeared. Hopefully it was sent but I haven’t heard a response yet so I’m assuming the message went into lala-land. Are you saying that your previous session isn't restored [Yes, none of the tabs were restored. Also, under the history tab, the “recently closed tabs” were grayed out so that menu command was useless.] or are you looking for the menu command to restore the previous session? Also, every time I reboot FF or my Computer, none of the previous tabs are restored. If the former, are you exiting before restarting your computer or shutting down? You should do that and you should use the exit command (either in the menu or the keyboard shortcut). I suggest you also allow enough time for the process to finish before restarting the computer or shutting down. Can you help me with this? What is the fix for this issue?

I openend a few tabs since so History recovery doesn't seem to work. This is such a critical tool, why not just have a button to do this? Why make us hunt & peck every time?

I can have a youtube video on two tabs, but I cant play both of them. I want to do this because I want to play "1 hour of silence occasionally broken up by AUUGHHH" to jumpscare myself randomly while watching another youtube video because I am a masochist. Whenever I play a video on one tab and go to the other and play that one, the other one pauses. Please help me satisfy my masochistic desires. Thanks in advance :)

A long time ago, I saw a list of open tabs in all windows, not just in one window, as it is now. (By the way, Google has added such a feature to Chrome. Clicking on the arrow allows us to see any open tab and navigate to it.) I am currently using Tab Manager to search for a tab. But the tab manager is not the best option because it is too slow to open and requires too many resources. Can I restore the old behavior to see tabs in all windows?

Hi I attached this to an already solved question and I'm afraid I won't get a response. After update to 72.0.1 Tabs merged with Bookmarks Toolbar. The solved solution of new text for the userChrome.css file doesn't work. The userChrome.css text jdevlin supplied does not work on my Firefox. I had to create a new chrome folder as this update seems to have deleted it. I pasted the text into the userChrome.css but there was no change. What am I doing wrong?

Really need help on this, Firefox is practically unusable like this.

Thanks!

I like to open all urls and links in a new tab because then I don't loose the original tab's contents. So I have set browser.tabs.loadBookmarksInTabs to true. Alas if I click on a link in the history library it still replaces the actual tab. I know that I can do a middle click or a right click to get a new tab but I would appreciate if I could set the standard behavior to open a new tab. Is there a setting for this?

https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/containers seems to suggests that it's possible to hide all tabs in certain containers, but does not explain how to do that.

"Hide and Show: Assume you use your browser for both Work and Personal tasks. When you come home at the end of the day, you don’t want to be thinking about “Work” anymore, but your browser is full of Work tabs. You can “Hide” your Work tabs and proceed with your Personal tasks. Then the next day, when you are back at work, you can “Hide” your Personal tabs and “Show” your Work tabs."

On an aside, I'm also getting pretty confused between collections (mobile), containers (desktop), sessions, tab groups, etc... they all seem to have overlapping but different functionality.
