Greetings,

I have happily used Firefox for a very very long time and all has been well until the last month or so.

I have a brand new laptop with Windows 11 Pro and Firefox 126.

Each time I open the machine to begin a new day and open Firefox, all my tabs are gone from the previous session; this is not good for my research, studies, and business activities. I have read a lot about this issue online and (1) find that under Settings, History, there is no "restore previous session" option; and (2) I have several times already cleared the "sessionstore" folder and copied the files for later reuse.

Further, "Open previous windows and tabs" is checked off; always has been. I have checked other relevant settings and they all seem fine; but to no avail.

What would you suggest?

Thanks, Donald Sanders

Is there a setting to avoid firefox swapping to new tabs, when ctrl-clicking search results in address bar?

Sometimes I want to search on multiple things through the address bar, but usually I search on google instead because every time I ctrl-click to open the searches, firefox automatically switches to that tab which means I have to swap back to the other tab, every time I open a new tab through the address bar.

It's only a problem in the search bar. Bookmarks and links on webpages open in new tabs, without swapping to those tabs.

I'm using PAC file that returns SOCKS5 proxy, however in my Network Monitor I see actual IP addresses rather than proxified. This is contrary to what Chromium does and it makes no sense. I need to know which requests were successfully proxied.

Is there a ay to enforce it or as usual Firefox is 10 years behind Chrome?

When FF loaded for first time after update had message about being able to fill in PDF documents. Even said give it a try on a option block. Then it displayed a form with blanks to enter name etc. However I wasn't able to enter name or data in the fields they sent me for trying it out. I could do other things with PDF FF displayed, draw, add text box, but not enter data on the form they sent to try it out. Wish I had saved the PDF they sent to show the new feature.

I Use Mac OS Firefox as my primary client for Gmail, and I always compose emails in a pop-out window. Ever since Firefox 124, these pop-out windows include the tool bar and bookmarks bar, eating up a bunch of space. I do want those bars displayed on my main firefox window, I don't want them displayed on the pop-up Gmail compose windows. Is there anyway to get Firefox revert back to this old behavior?

For introduction, sorry if My English was very bad.

Suppose I was in YouTube (https://youtube.com) domain name, then from that URL, I went to https://youtube.com/history (that is, all in the same domain name YouTube, but different URL) by clicking the history button. The same I did when I clicked https://chat.openai.com/c/d93ac426-c5d1-451b-abc4-fc82739f..... from https://chat.openai.com/c/d93df...... (went from one chat to another) or to https://chat.openai.com/ (went from current to new chat) by clicking the list of chats at leftmost vertical panel. When I saw the top left corner of Firefox browser, the "round circle arrow" reload button was not change to "X" or any other symbol specified that the page was going to different link (different URL). Previously I have had went to this https://github.com/microsoft/playwright/issues/15781 page, and mostly not specified the problems at all. I went to ChatGPT and it said that "I must change the 'false' to 'true' of browser.tabs.remote.separateContentProcess object/variable in about:config. When I searched for that, it seems I found browser.tabs.remote.separatePrivilegedContentProcess" and I have had toggle this to ensure if YouTube, ChatGPT, or other domain will refresh/reload the page when it went to different URL in the same domain, but nothing happens.

The problem is, this is not happen in Chrome Browser. Because of Firefox is my default browser, multi-functional, configurable, I want to make this behavior can also happens in Firefox rather than Chrome. Is there any solution of this?

Hello,

I'm using a PC with windows 11 and my Firefox is up-to-date 124.0.1 (64 bits).

1- It's been several years since a "full screen <=> rest of page" transition was implemented on youtube (using the scroll wheel for example). Is there a way to completely hide YouTube's vertical scrollbar in full screen mode?

I've checked with Opera and Edge browsers and their behaviors are normal in my mind, as the bar is simply hidden in full-screen mode, no matter where I move the cursor. https://ibb.co/nkJzb8S

On Firefox, it is hidden but only if you don't move the mouse or hold the cursor over the scroll bar. https://ibb.co/VW3JTzp Is this an expected behavior in Firefox?

Otherwise, I've tried a couple of "hide scrollbar" style add-ons, but nothing worked, at least for this particular vertical bar, in full screen mode. I also tried the Troubleshoot mode, and to delete the internet cache with no more success. Here's how it looks in pictures (moving ones :) ) to make it clearer https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UrJa60LHEws

2- Another question please, why are add-ons disabled on mozilla.org pages, and is there a way to enable some of them on there ?

Thanks for your attention and any help you can provide. Damien F.

Previously I've been able to select search suggestions using the keyboard when typing into a search bar. As of a few days ago this no longer works on some sites like YouTube, but does work on others like Google. The issue is not to do with num lock or scroll lock, and my browser is up to date (124.0.1 Ubuntu Snap version).

this was asked before by myself

/questions/1284841

and again by another user

/questions/1402855

the code was

  1. navigator-toolbox {
 max-height: 0;
 overflow: hidden;
 transition: ease all 3s;

}

  1. main-window:hover #navigator-toolbox {
 max-height: 100vh;
 animation: 0s pop-in;
 animation-fill-mode: both;
 animation-delay: 2s;

}

@keyframes pop-in {

 from {overflow: hidden}
 to {overflow: unset}

}

the issue now i have with firefox 124.0.2 is that the transition is now instant when my mouse enters or leaves the window and one of my addon buttons (roboform) no longer works with this userchrome.css edit.

its been a few updates ago it broke maybe 15 or so and now im wondering if there is a better updated script that works like it used to.

Hello, I'm looking for a way to add a shortcut, similar to:

CTRL + Click = open link in new tab SHIFT + Click = open link in new window

What I want it to do is open a link in a Private mode window, to avoid having to open the right-click menu.

I came across this person asking for something similar (they specifically want the private window to not appear on top, I do not care if it gets automatically focused or not) https://support.mozilla.org/bm/questions/1317416

The only answer links to a list of "command line options" and points to the private ones. I understand how you can use these to change how the Firefox shortcut behaves, or to open Firefox in a specific way from the "Run" command, but I do not know how, or if it is even possible to apply these settings to a specific shortcut-click combination.
