How to align all tab content (tab text, tab icon) on left but keep tab close button on right in userChrome.css

I am currently using a css theme that makes firefox look somewhat like safari, so all of the tabs' content (the text and icon) are lined up in the center. However, the close tab button also ends up lining up in the center, and I'm not sure how to fix that, because of the following code:

/* Center all content */ .tab-content { display: flex; justify-content: center; align-items: center; margin-top: -1px; min-width: 100% !important; padding: 0 10px !important; }

the align-items: center makes it so that the close tab button is also in the center. How can I change the position of the close tab button individually?

There should be a way.

A way = An option if enabled, this happens:

The browser starts to remember the state of the tab he/she was in.

For example, if I am learning by watching "How to build a portfolio website?" video on YouTube or some website in FullScreen, then if I switch to next tab pressing "Crtl + Tab", where I can see my portfolio website which I am editing from VS Code realtime. Now if I press "Ctrl + Tab" again, I want to see my YouTube video in same way, it was left before (i.e FullScreen).

Please, for the love of God, give students like us this functionality where students are not annoyed by having to go to fullscreen again and again.

(If you don't understand what I am trying to say then, do watch see this: https://imgur.com/a/yjibtLG )

Remember the state of fullscreen-ness, your highness. It's a painful process to repeat every single time.

Students learn millions of things every single time through the internet these days. The total amount of time that we save by providing this option is just mindblowing.

Let save time. Let make Firefox intelligent. Pass this idea at least.

There should be some sort of option in about:config where the browser starts to remember the state of Fullscreen videos especially when he/she does this by pressing Ctrl + Tab.

I have Tweetdeck in a pinned tab. There are a lot of columns, which I navigate by swiping left/right on my Magic Mouse. When I swipe to the left, to return to the first column, it often swipes a little bit too far and Firefox interprets that as a request to "back arrow" to the previous page, which is my Firefox home screen.

Is there any way to disable this behavior, so that a long left swipe will move the screen all the way to the left edge and stop there, without going all the way back to the Firefox home screen?

I have verified that the settings are to open links in a new tab but they still open in a new window and the new window has tabs I previously closed. This problem arose after Microsoft did an update to Windows 10 in which my default browser (Firefox) was replaced with Edge. When I reset Firefox as my default the problem appeared. Prior to the update links opened in a new tab as I intended.

Is it possible to have several PiPs running simultaneously in separate 'windows'?

The PiP view is actually really useful just for losing all the window decorations - panels, info/status/bookmark/title/tab bars etc.

It would be useful to be able to pop out two, three or more different videos (e.g. multiple youtube videos) to arrange them around the screen with optimal scaling/space usage to fit them all in.

The title basically says it all already. In the documentation of the new tab page it tells you how to remove them, but not how to add them. There should be a way however. For some reason, the pocket suggestions disappeared from my new tab page, and I haven't found a way to get them back. I know from another machine that under settings there should be a check box that you can tick to enable or disable pocket suggestions on the new tab page, but on the system in question, this option is simply not there. How to fix?

using the CTRL+TAB to show open thumbnails tabs visually is a great feature firefox have over other browsers and what encouraged me to leave chrome. have only 6 inst very effective - this needs to be dynamic (for at least 10-15 tabs) and going over the web is seems a lot of people asked this feature.

Is there a way to change this? if not where can I ask a feature request?

Tried it with and without these running and FF fails to save my tabs, regardless of shutting down the browser or the OS. This does not occur on Win10 or my Linux distros. I've been trawling forums and help pages and the Interweb casually for weeks now, without success, but getting quite frustrated now; so posting this as a last resort. Thanks in advance of any suggestions.

All the thumbnails except for the starting page are blank when restarting the browser. I need to click on each and every tab to make the thumbnails show.

Is there a way to change this? It drives me up the wall, especially when having to restart multiple times -which happens a lot due to several factors. I have vision problems and need the thumbs to show to find my way around quickly.

Thanks.

locking as a dupe of - https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1299540

Had a browser crash while changing watching a sports program online. Using FF v79 on W7. I want to change the tabs to a more rounded look. I had a theme installed that did this, a light weight theme. Since the crash I can no longer find the theme to install. The crash folder did nothing to restore these rounded tabs.

As usual, the latest Windows 10 update has caused a few annoying issues. One is that whenever I share something to Facebook from an external site like a newspaper, after the share popup has disappeared I am left with a completely empty tab. Is there any way of stopping this happening? I'm not an expert and don't feel confident about messing with codes, so a simple fix would be appreciated. I've added the troubleshooting information as offered on this page, but have no idea whether this would be helpful!

Hi all,

I'm having an issue that's only just started happening in the last couple of weeks I'd say where I'm on YouTube and I open a few videos in new tabs to watch and they just start playing on their own which is really annoying. I've got the autoplay function set to block both audio and video. It doesn't happen with every single video but it happens with most.

And sometimes I find that I go into the tab, click the play button and it plays the last second of the video and shows the end card. Not too much trouble but a bit baffling. I was wondering if it was maybe still playing in the background but not loudly announcing itself this time.

Another issue (though I don't know if it is an issue) is that I like to have Twitch going in the background if I'm waiting for a streamer to start streaming so I can hear once they do but the page doesn't actually reload unless I go back to it and I find I've missed the first 20min. I don't get why some pages load and keep keep going in the background while others don't. Any way to fix this?

Cheers!
