I have Google's Gmail, Calendar and Keep applications set as individual tabs. For a long time every startup would load those tabs in a logged in state as I had left them when shutting down. Recently I had to clear cookies etc, and since then no more auto-sign-in during startup.

Suggestions?

I would like to set the tabs to display below the address bar in Firefox 89 64bit. I believe the setting is in about:config but I can't find it. Firefox does this every so often and I wish they would just have a button to say tabs on top, or tabs below address bar.

"What's the point of a 'tab' if there's no tab? Text floating around at the top of the page is not a tab."

Hello, I had just recieved the new redesign of Firefox on my system and so far I am loving every bit of it.

However, I am a person that frequently opens many, MANY tabs and likes to keep them organized by draging them around on the tab bar. Since the new redesign I can no longer move my tabs around or open new windows by detaching tabs. Is this on purpose and supposed to have been a "feature" with the redesign? I have tried reinstalling firefox as well without success in fixing the issue.

New redesign update 89 somehow changed New Tab design. I don't know how it should look, but I think this is not what is intended. There is only one setting left - an amount of rows, which doesn't solve this alignment problem. Highlighting an item also looks misaligned.

Firefox updated and now my tabs are above the address bar, I hate it. I have went through all the information I could and created a new chrome folder, downloaded the css and changed user preferences but it sets the tabs to the bottom of the screen not just below the address bar. I think I need a different set of code for the css but cant find a copy. Does anyone know what to do?

Is there a way to use older look without downgrading the whole browser to previous versions?

In my opinion the new design is an absolute eyesore. None of the themes available even resemble what I liked about Firefox. I always adored this browser for simplicity and clarity, but they completely overdid it in the current version.

Firefox updated itself this morning to Version 89.0(64-bit) on my Windows 10 desktop. Now, when I open a new tab and start to type an search term into the search box on the Firefox home page on that tab, it begins typing in the address bar instead. Is this the new normal, or a glitch?

Is separated tab a bug or bad design? If the second, how can I revert to logical tab, that connected to its page? (And why the hell such ugly design decision passed?)

As I can see Themes show proper design with connected tabs: https://user-media-prod-cdn.itsre-sumo.mozilla.net/uploads/images/2021-06-02-08-11-27-3907e9.png

My Sessions and Session Boss know I have all my tabs open presently. I can't see the tabs & I can't right click a bookmark and see a 2nd tab open. I had the tabs at the top and just under the bookmarks bar. Now it is just one long blank bar. I disabled and then re-enabled proton, which is the worst upgrade experience ever. I changed to a simple theme, still no tabs. I downloaded the previous version 88, but it will start a new profile. I just want where I was 2 hours ago. I'll attach an image of the left upper screen with the blank tab bar.

Hello!

when I turned off my computer, I had a number of important tabs open. Usually when I turn off my computer and turn it back on, I just "restore" my previous session and my tabs are there. However, Firefox upgraded automatically and gave me no option to save my tabs or restore them. Now all I am seeing is new tab and new window as options. :( I need my previous sessions because I don't remember all the urls out of my head. Please help.

Kind regards,

-Rusty

Would love to just go back to my old browser look, but if not, is there a way to: 1) Not have the "floating" tabs? In other words, have the tab outlines clearly showing? 2) I find it very annoying to see the "PLAYING" constantly popping-up in my tab when playing solitaire. Is there a way to disable that?

On 6-2-2021 the Firefox /browser was automatically updated (errgh!). Now, my tabs are all gone and the History is empty. They were not merely recreational or random. Please help. Thank you in advance!

I think this happens routinely. Can the Mozilla people prevent the problem in the first place? How can I tell the angst they cause their users? I see others begging for help with this problem.

My firefox installed a new update, 89, and now my tabs are missing, except that the active tab is floating down at the center bottom of the screen. i can still navigate with keyboard shortcuts, but i don't know how many i have open, what they are, and personally DO NOT like navigating with shortcuts if i don't have to.

why is it necessary to keep messing with tabs? weren't they just fine below the address bar back in the day? How is ruining the user experience worth whatever was even trying to be done here?

image is how my firefox looks right now

I don't know if I'm the only one who used this feature, but when I opened a new tab I could just drop some copied text in there, go to another tab do something, then go back to that new tab where the text was copied, take the copy once more from the bar and go back to the previous tab. The text in the new tab didn't disappear all the time when new tab was "opened". Currently in version 89.0 this functionality disappeared and when I change from new tab to other tab text from the "search bar" disappear, the funniest thing is this functionality saved me a lot of time because I didn't have to play with any notepad or anything to store copied things. Is there any option to bring it back?
