Firefox links play controls in different tabs. If I listen to music in one tab and watching video in another, when I pause video, music will stop. But if I want to stop one source to listen another it stops both. It's annoying. Can I fix it?

Recently I've been experiencing a weird bug when hovering over tabs (see attached screenshot). This started not too long ago, maybe a month or so. It happens randomly and disappears if I relaunch Firefox. Initially I thought that this only occurred when my computer is connected to an external display, I'm using an old MacBook Pro with an integrated Intel graphics chip. So I figured maybe it was struggling with the resolution of my external monitor. But now it happened without it being connected to the monitor. Has someone experienced this?

Dear Sir,

It happen to me recently, when I put on middle button, Firefox sent me directly on new tab just opened. Or I want stay on the main search page(primary tab). I try to do Firefox Reset, Restart with Add-ons disable, Clear startup cache... Nothing. Especially, It happen to me when Firefox account is connected. All my computer do the same. I set up a new Ubuntu and install a new Firefox, but no account connected. I work correctly.

Best Regards. Sri

Dear Firefox support,

When I use Firefox, the top of my window (with the tabs, pinned pages, toolbar, and everything immediately above the window I am working on) automatically hides itself. When I hover my mouse over where it used to be, the toolbar and tabs drop down so I can see them, but then when I move my mouse away again they disappear. I don't know how to turn this off, I'd really appreciate some help! (I like seeing my tabs when I browse)

Thank you!

Tab switching priority when closing a tab

I could be crazy, but I think this behavior has recently changed in Firefox. I often open links in Facebook (or Reddit, or Twitter, etc), which opens a new tab to the right of the (origin website's) tab. When I am finished reading the link, I will use CTRL+W to close that tab, and it used to switch back to the previous tab from which I clicked the link. In other words, if I open a link in a new tab, when I closed that new tab it switches back to the tab where I clicked the link from (assuming I navigate to no other tabs or websites).

However, the behavior now is different in where Firefox will switch to the /next/ tab on the right, instead of back one to the left. This adds extra steps to navigating websites which have a lot of external links, such as any social media platform, because I have to manually switch back to the website's (Facebook) tab after closing the new tab.

I have looked at a few other articles and questions and browsed the options and even the about:config settings and didn't see anything specific to this.

I like to have pinned tabs for the front and back end of my website and a couple of others pages. However, because all the tabs show is the same favicon there is no other way to distinguish them and I am constantly clicking through them to find the pinned page I want.

Can someone please tell me if there is a setting or option to change this behavior or width of the pinned tabs?

Thanks in advance. Paul

I have 5 pinned tabs lately, and many unpinned (20-100s). Recently one of the pinned tabs, Twitter specifically, has been unpinning itself at random(?) intervals. I can re-pin it just fine, it's just a little odd. None of the others do this.

I am running with Tree Style Tabs and per-site Containers (but not Twitter or FB specific container extensions). And other extensions like ABP and NS, but I doubt they relate, while these might?

When I open a tab, I get this notice: "Open Network Login Page": "You must log in to this network before you can access the internet."

When I close that tab, I can proceede as normally.

If I click on that button where it says "Open Network Login Page," I get another screen where that button is gone, and it says "You must log in to this network before you can access the internet."

Here is the URL: https://detectprotal.firefox.com/success.txt

Both of these pages has a question mark in a circle, but this is not clickable.

I am enclosing screenshots.

This is Firefox version 82.0.3 I use a Mac Book, version 10.14.6

Thanks!
