This isn't a constant issue for me, but occasionally the browser will suddenly break such that when I switch tabs, nothing actually updates until I do something like restore/maximise the window. I can still interact with the page itself, but whether using the mouse or keyboard shortcuts, changing, opening, or closing tabs, or even typing in the navigation bar, won't do anything until I resize the window again. I haven't been able to figure out any pattern to when this state triggers, but after it does, it doesn't clear up without closing and reopening the browser. I have recorded a video showing this behavior but I am unable to upload it here, and still images would not properly convey the issue.

When I click a link either form a web page or from an email I get a whole new window rather than a new tab in the existing Firefox window. This new window is stripped back without the usual menu of options at the top. Is this EDGE taking over my life? I have Firefox as my default browser.

Hello,

I am wondering how to remove the web icons/favicon from tabs (and windows if possible) for specific websites, but not all websites. I know you can hide all favicons using 'userChrome.css' and the code:

.tabbrowser-tab .tab-icon-image { display: none !important; }

Is there any way to configure this to block just a site like Wikipedia, without blocking everything else?

Thanks.

Firefox changed the design on tabs and other features some time back. The whole user experience has been worse since the UX design was changed. For example, it's impossible to find out without going through tab after tab, which one is active and playing. I wish there was an option to reverse back to the old design.

How to keep browsing history of individual tabs.

Hi, it has occurred to me that I lose the browsing history of tabs that were open for a long time. By browsing history i mean the sites that show up in "Go back one page" arrow. The issue is that after a website has been open for some time (this seems to be in range of days, perhaps weeks) the browsing history of that tab is forgotten and the Go back one page arrow goes blank. I would like to be able to keep this history for eternity, is there any way to enable that?

To be clear, I use the feature to save tabs of my previous sessions and also the Simple Tab Groups extension.

Thanks in advance, Alex

So I enabled push notifications for Google Calendar. Every time there's a notification, Google Calendar ask if I want to enable "Switch to this tab" for their notifications. I accidentally turned it on, then I managed to turn it off. Except it now keep asking me if I want to enable it.

Looking at the settings, the only two options available are "Always ask" and "Yes", with no way of just saying no... why?

I use an addon to display my tabs in a tree on the side of the screen. As such, the horizontal tabs at the top of the screen are unnecessary, and I would like to remove them.

I've tried to follow a few other guides on how to do this, without success. I've created a userChrome.css file in the "chrome" folder of my active Firefox profile. It currently looks like this:

  1. tabbrowser-tabs {

visibility: collapse !important; min-height: 0 !important; }

tab{ display:none!important; }

However, the tabs remain. I've tried a few other permutations of these rules. I've made sure to save the text file and restart firefox multiple times. It also persisted across a PC restart.

What am I doing wrong?

All of a sudden, I can no longer open new tabs in Firefox just by clicking the top bar (sorry, don't know how to describe this: the space that sits just below the line with 'File', 'Edit', 'View', 'History', etc. (Menu bar?) Formerly, when I had a tab open I used to be able just to click that line and a new tab would open. To open a new tab now I have to look to the right of the screen, and press the '+' button (Open a new tab Control+ 1) that appears in that same area just below the that is there. Not nearly as convenient. Please tell me how to fix this as simply as possible (I am not very computer literate). I have done nothing to change anything in the Firefox settings, so don't know why this happened all of a sudden. Very frustrating. My bookmarks all disappeared too, by the way, thoughI figured out how to resstore them to top of screen. I am using Windows 10 Thanks in advance, A frustrated Cynthia
