I just came back to Firefox after about 2 months, as Microsoft crushed my OS with their fall feature update. I could not get many items running, and just had to start from scratch.

That being said, I surely do not recall that every time I clicked a link, it would open in a new tab. I mean, every single time. Who ever thought that was a good idea.

Anyone have a clue as to what's happening here? I usually only want a new tab to open when either I choose it as a right-click option, or when builders have invested it specifically in their code, as they know it will navigate away from their site, etc...

I would be most thankful to get this baby back running like normal. Your help is appreciated!

Btw, fresh windows 10 install. The only extensions I have running are adblock, lastpass, blur, downloadthemall and new tab homepage (which just let's me determine the page address.)

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.

Hi, I have updated to the latest verson 75.0, and I am a little uncomfortable for the default action when I open a new tab, the cursor focused on the address bar , and the address bar was widened and made a little shadow to the bookmarks bar which caused discomfort for me, because I always open website by bookmarks bar, no need for typing the full address in the adress bar. I have searched the config options but none is effective and also tried about:config, is there anyway not to widen the address bar or is there a configuration when I click the bookmark in current tab,it will open in new tab not replace the current tab .If it is possible by not downloading a lower verson,please let me know how to config it,thank you.

So after wiping my system for a fresh windows install, I pulled out the backup.json4 and recovery.json4 from my backup drive and plopped it in place of sessionstore.json4

And all of my tabs and windows came back! So far so good!

But then after closing some tabs and moving things around, when I close the session out again, it doesn't update the sessionstore file, or any of the stuff in the backup folder to reflect those changes.

When I open firefox again it starts as a session with all my windows/tabs after the file-replace.

I use firefox for managing tutorial videos, which involves separating them into different windows/tab arrangements, so any tips on how to resolve this issue and get firefox to start updating the sessionstore would be appreciated.

Thank you!

Dear Mozilla, please implement an "Open-Tab-Next-To-Current"-functionality. A bit better than in the Addon "Open Tab Next To Current". Because the newly created tab opens at the end and "runs" back to the place i want it.

i really want that feature. since so many years, mozilla team has done a great job but didn't implement an option or enable and disable opening tabs next to current.

Normally, if I click a pdf file on-line, I get the question to open or save. If I choose open, I get a separate pdf file in my Windows task bar to open. Yesterday, this behavior was different. The PDF file became a little icon in the bottom left of my screen, and when I clicked that it opened the pdf in a browser tab. Today this is gone and it is back to its old way. I prefer the tab. Do you know why this happened or how to get that back?

Can the Mozilla team PLEASE fix this properly as it appears to mess up a few folks. And the answer is NOT having to quit and restart. They should be presevered in their own right. And please can you implement synching of Pinned Tabs across my login domain. Ta muchly

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).
