Firefox's pinned tabs closing

Hello everyone.

I've been using Firefox for quite a few years now and I'm used to keep my pinned tabs open after closing and then opening a Firefox windows.

Yesterday I noticed that after closing the navigator with the "X" in the tool bar menu, as I usually do, the pinned tabs are not "recovered" when opening again.

This happened randomly without configuration changes involved and drivers/firefox are updated to the last version available.

Moreover, I've tested the same in my notebook and it works just fine, as it keeps the tabs open when a new window is open.

Is there any troubleshooting for this or do you have any idea what could have caused this to happen?

Let me know if you need any additional info. Thanks in advance!

I stupidly upgraded to the worst system in the world, Windows 11, and the silly animations caused serious strain on my device. I disabled the animation effects in settings, but now when I use Firefox as usual, the loading page icon animation has become a static hourglass icon, which is unfriendly. How can I enable the loading page icon animation while keeping the system animation effects turned off?

I've just installed Firefox 113.0 and my tab bar is now above the toolbar and bookmarks bar. Up until 112, the tab bar was below the bookmarks bar. I have no changed anything in UserChrome and in fact that file is still dated 2020. I've searched but haven't found an explanation. Anyone know what changed or is this just a bug? Thanks

On a Mac, OS 11.7.7. When I have right-clicked with my Apple mouse on an link in a website page, I've been shown the option "Open page in a new tab". That option has just disappeared on me, unless I simultaneously press the Control key. What can I do to restore that function (without simultaneously pressing Control)? Even if you cannot answer my question, it would be helpful to know whether the problem is in a Firefox setting or an IOS setting.

I'll be most grateful for your help. Thank you

Hi!

Let's start by saying that I love Firefox, that I use it as my primary browser everywhere and I love that is not based on chromium. However, for reasons to me unknown is missing a very important feature (natively at least): tab grouping. This feature is extremely simple to implement and in today life, where in most jobs (I'm a researcher) you have to deal with a tons of tabs opened in your browser, being able to effectively organize them is a must.

My question is: has Firefox the intention to implement (again) this feature? Will this happen soon?

I'm really trying my best to not switch to a competitor browser and I really want to support Firefox and hope that it gains more and more users. But for this to happen it really needs to be on par with time. How come every other popular browser has a very good tab grouping feature and Firefox doesn't?

Please, let me know if there's a chance to see this feature implemented in reasonable times. Sooner or later, you will probably have to do that reagardless.

Wish you the best, A.

Till version 112 I used this in my userChrome.css to get back the close buttons on tabs, but only when I hover over them (active or inactive tabs): .tab-close-button{ display: none } .tabbrowser-tab:not([pinned]):hover .tab-close-button{

   display: -moz-box !important

}

But now with version 113.0.1 it doesn't work at all and no X appears when I hover over my tabs.

I tried adding #tabbrowser-tabs[closebuttons="activetab"] on top of the previous code, but it made the X appear all the time.

How could I update this code so I get the desired result only when I hover over a tab?

Since one of the last updates the behaviour for the tab re-sizing got messed up.

When there are only a few tabs with full size, those as well as the additional plus icon is shown. But when there are more tabs and they are re-sized, then the right side gets cut off. First the new tab icon dissapears and then also the last tab get's cut off.

I attached a screenshot with three firefox browser windows showing the problem, as well as a forth one with only 3 tabs open, which are shown in full size including the new tab icon.

This is a new problem as the tab resizinng and the new tab icon used to work perfectly fine no matter how many tabs were opened.
