I am trying to set it up so I can have more than one tab at a time or dont have to go to the corner to find a list of tabs or go to a diffrent window to open one. I have the box in the corner with the numbers but that sometimes vanishes entirely so I only have the one tab and would like it to be like most browsers where you can see them all at the top. I cant get the extension that manages it because the only computer I have is one given to me by my job that's a chrome book and doesn't support those extentions, I tried. About:config doesnt work it just tells me that's not a site or gives me advice on how to use it which isn't really helpful when I can't even search it or find the spot for it. The tabs section in the settings only offers to put it on top or bottom of screen or to have it inactive or not, or automatically close them, there is no option to have more than one tab. Please help I've tried everything I can think of and everything I could find online.

When dragging a tab into a new window, how do you stop it from being full screen like previous window

I am wondering if it is at all possible to adjust the settings when pulling a tab into a new window. For example, if I am running Firefox fullscreen I would like the tab that I pull to be opened in windowed form. I noticed that this is typically the case when using Chromium-based browsers, but noticed that on Firefox it stays in the format as the previous window. (if already windowed the pulled tab will also be windowed) is there a way to ensure that the pulled tab will always be windowed?

MacOS FF dev edition 102 When I roll my mouse over a link, in pops up the URL in the bottom left (i.e. status bar as safari calls it) but there's no indication of if the link will show in the current tab or a new tab. in safari, the end of the URL states "in new tab" if that's the case.

so i just started up my computer, and i have the start up preferences set to restoring previous session. this usually works out just fine, even when firefox updates. however, this time (for the second time all around) it didn't go right. for some reason, the tabs opened up are from over two months ago from june, rather than my previous session. this is the second time something like this has happened to me.

i checked my homepages, and the alternate profile, and both seemed normal. (the homepage is the firefox home and the alt profile is the bare, the profile before i imported my bookmarks, passwords, add-ons, etc etc) reopening my previous tabs hasn't been too much of a hassle, but i don't want to make a habit of this. i have very limited technical acumen, so please be detailed and specific in your reply, i do genuinely need my hand held here.

if you have any more questions for me i'm happy to answer. thank you in advance!

I've been using multi-account containers for a long time. I've always used 'ctrl + shift + # of container' to open new tabs in a specific container. Recently, that feature has stopped working - but only for some containers? I can still open containers 1 and 2 using that shortcut, but my other containers just don't respond.

I've tried deleting the unresponsive containers and creating new ones, but that doesn't fix the problem. They work great otherwise - I can still open them with my mouse. Is there a fix for this?

I want to select multiple Tabs from a bookmark folder to open in the background.

On Chrome this used to be quite easy: Just open the Dropdown, click whichever tabs you wanted to open with the Mousewheel and done.

On Firefox you need to enable new tabs to open in Background first. I managed to find the setting for that with google after a while. You need to go to advanced settings by typing about:config into your url bar.

Then you search for browser.tabs.loadBookmarksInBackground and click "enable".

But this didn't fix the other issue I had, that the dropdown menu always closes as soon as I click anything.

Is there a way so it stays open until I'm done selecting the pages I want?

Your previous reply message to me is below at the bottom of this reply. My answers are inside your reply.

I tried to reply to you yesterday from the help site on FF, however on the last word, I misspelled that word, I attempted to correct it, it should have been easy enough because it was the last letter on the last word, I put my curser at the end of the last word and as I tried remove that letter, BOOM, the whole message disappeared. Hopefully it was sent but I haven’t heard a response yet so I’m assuming the message went into lala-land. Are you saying that your previous session isn't restored [Yes, none of the tabs were restored. Also, under the history tab, the “recently closed tabs” were grayed out so that menu command was useless.] or are you looking for the menu command to restore the previous session? Also, every time I reboot FF or my Computer, none of the previous tabs are restored. If the former, are you exiting before restarting your computer or shutting down? You should do that and you should use the exit command (either in the menu or the keyboard shortcut). I suggest you also allow enough time for the process to finish before restarting the computer or shutting down. Can you help me with this? What is the fix for this issue?

This is the first time, that an update lost all of my tabs. Is there a way to access previous sessions, other than the most recent one? I would like to access a session from last week, and see if I can get my tabs back. I'm very unhappy about this and I've not been able to restore my tabs. The current tabs are place holders, and they do the reflect what I had before the update.

This morning, I needed to join a Teams meeting. After I'd clicked the link, I was asked if I would allow Microsoft to use my audio and video; I ticked "Allow". But, when I joined the meeting, I found that I could hear and be heard but I couldn't be seen; my video icon refused to react when I tried to get it open. It was only when I came in through Edge that I could be both heard and seen. Is there any way I can get into a Teams meeting through Firefox? (I have downloaded Teams on to my desk top.) Steve
