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?

when there's an open private window and you close the non private window first , all the tabs are closed and when you open firefox again all tabs are cleared and just a new tab is open

this is not desired behavior I guess and i've lost all the open tabs multiple times this way because sometimes private windows remain left open in another desktop or just minimized (and you shutdown the PC or just close the Firefox and all the tabs are gone!).

is there any settings for this ? if not then this is a bug report I guess

When choosing "Open Link in a New Tab" on MSN, no tab created. (Firefox 63.0.1 on Win 10 home 1873.) Fails on Create Window also. Works on links other than MSN

MSN is my home page. I right click on links that I am interested in, choose "Open Link in a new tab" and they used to pop open on my tab line. Suddenly, when I upgraded to Firefox 63.0.1 it fails. It fails to open in a new window also. It just disappears.

Other web pages work just fine. So I am perplexed.

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.

Hello, I'd like to open url links clicked from any program in a private tab. Firefox is my default browser. Links open in new tab, which is okay. I browse in private mode all of the time, but clicking links opens in normal tab, then it cashes the content, cashes history etc. Most of the stuff (from for example discord) is a one time thing, silly and probably even useless stuff.

Is there a possible way to force windows10 to use "firefox.exe -private" as the default handler to open firefox ? I don't really mind if it opens a new window instead of new tab as long as it remains private.

Thank You for Your time.

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.

I think this issue started with 66.0.4, as I noticed it before the update to 66.0.5.

I am no longer able to drag tabs, either within the same window or to a new window.

I also noticed that I can't drag bookmarks around on the Bookmarks Toolbar.

I tried running Safe Mode, and uninstalled and reinstalled with no addons, but the behavior is the same.

Let me know if I can provide any additional details. I'd appreciate it if anyone can offer any help with this.

How to stop Firefox from closing multiple tabs when I only want to close single ones?

When closing tabs by clicking it's own "close cross/button" I often get a popup sayin I'm about to close x many tabs. If I don't click the popup firefox closes also tabs that I haven't clicked to close (because I want them to remain open). If I don't clikck the popup, the tabs that get closed seem to be ones that I've opened through a tab that I do want to close.

As you can guess, this is highly frustrating. I have loads of tabs open at any given time and I'm using Tree Style Tabs to keep them a bit more organized. I haven't found anyone else with this problem so could it be causing this behaviour?

Using Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit SP1 Firefox 73.0.1 64-bit When I close several tabs, a message box appears telling me that tabs will be closed in 20 seconds, or to click to avoid that. If I dismiss the box by clicking on the window-frame "X", Firefox closes too many tabs. (The box disappears after a few seconds.) I wish not to see that box. I wish Firefox to do nothing I do not trigger myself. How do I eliminate that function entirely?
