Firefox will not create new tabs

I was using the tree style tabs add-on. Firefox popped up a message about a problem with that add-on, which I unfortunately clicked on, and all my tabs vanished. Now not only do I not have my tree-style tabs, Firefox will not create new tabs at all, and "restore session," or "restore all tabs" does nothing. FWIW, in safe mode, it will still give me standard abs at the top.

The Add-ons page offers me "find alternative add-ons," but will not download the alternative it offered me.

I've been a loyal Firefox user since the very first iteration of Firefox, but this has got me ready to bail and find another browser. Really pissed that it gave me no option to read up on what the problem was before killing all my tabs and refusing to allow me to even make new ones in the standard top tab mode without safe mode. I understand there being a problem with an add-on, but this sort of behavior is beyond the pale.

Anyone encountered this problem? Any solutions beyond changing browsers?

When I am on a Firefox webpage and it site says something like "Click Here" to open a how to file or a pfd or a statement to print...those types of things. Once I click on the button Firefox starts to open new tabs, one after another. It never stops. I end up shutting down Firefox before it finishes. I counted 55 new tabs at one point. But, the new material never shows up either! Any suggestions?

I want to have my posts on Voy Forums to be about 4 to 5 inches wide. Now when I type a post, it fills the whole page and it's hard for people to follow. I need to set the default margin for posts. How can I do that without having to use the "Enter Key"?

I often want to keep a tab open and go back to the search. It used to be that clicking on a search result opened a new tab,but now it replaces the search with that link so that I have to back out of it to get to the search and use history to see where I have been. This is a dealbreaker for me. There does not appear to be any way of restoring this behavior, even in about:config. Help

Would like a way to save the pinned and other tabs I have open in someplace, so when they get deleted I don't have to rummage thru last months History and dig out each one over again. A simple "Save this layout with date and name" somewhere would be great.

FF 78.0.1 Can't get tabs on bottom to work - despite fact that .css file is working on another computer

Hi all, I just got a new laptop and am trying to get FF the way I like it. This new laptop is W10, and the FF version is 78.0.1.

My old laptop (W7) also has FF 78.0.1.

I created a Chrome folder and a userChrome.css file in my new computer. I copied and pasted the "tabs on bottom" code I have been using on my W7 computer into the new file on my new computer and it is not working.

I have looked all over the web for several hours now and have tried several different versions of the code, tried turning the "legacy toolkit" line (in about:config) on and off and nothing has worked. I also can't find any information on why this code would work in W7 but not W10.

Does anyone have any thoughts?

When it became version 78.0.2, the menu to close the tab on the right side was gone and I was very confused. As a result, it was pushed into the submenu. I've been using Firefox because it has a menu to close the tab on the right, but if I can't immediately access this feature, I should consider switching browsers. Please move this menu from sub to main as soon as possible.

Updated to Win10, FF opens tab to a unsaved/unwanted legitimate website almost everytime I run it.

Since I updated to Windows 10, when I start FireFox about two-thirds of the time it will open with all my previously opened tabs but then open a new one to the Logitech website (http://www.logitech.com/en-gb). I do have two Logitech products on my PC and the only thing that has changed was the upgrade to Win10.

I have gone through the settings for FF and cannot find a reason why it should. There are no mysterious extensions or plugins.

I have gone through all the settings for Win10, particularly the Privacy ones and turned off everything that I do not want.

I was running an older version of FF but I have updated to the latest version but that has not fixed it.
