Using 74.0a1 (2020-01-29) (64-bit) I can't get the open new contaner menu to pop up. This has happened for several days now. I can only create a container tab by creating a new global tab then right clicking on it and choosing 'Reopen in Container'

Hi I'm having occasional BSODs at the moment, usually get an IRQL message. Main annoyance though is that after reboot all my tabs in Firefox are gone, including the pinned tabs which I use for common sites. Everything else is fine though. But redoing this every time getting very annoying. Is there something I can do to stop this?

How to share the tabs across all open windows?

Hi, I work in GNU/Linux + Gnome with several tabs (around 100). They have different context (research, personal, related to a course, and work; are some examples). I use several windows with several tabs each. I would like to have one group per window, to be able to close a window and not losing the tabs it had, (to close all the windows and be able to reopen them).

I cannot find a way to organize my tabs in such a way that windows don't isolate their tabs. There are plenty of add-ons to group tabs. But all of them end up hiding/unhiding the tabs of only the current window.

It looks that the underlying architecture is this: OS has Firefox. Firefox has Windows. Windows have tabs. Tabs are manageable only in the window they belong to.

Therefore, every window is only aware of its own group of tabs.

What I am looking for is a different approach, or at least the illusion of it: OS has Firefox Firefox has Tabs. Tabs are manageable, from any instance of a window.

Therefore, the window is only a viewer that is aware of all the tabs.

The plug-ins: Panorama Tab Group, Simple Tab Groups, and similar work a bit, but if I open a new window, and do some browsing, the old window does not know anything in the new window.

Is there a setting/plugin that can solve this problem? maybe I am missing some setting or I just don't know how to use the plugins... Thanks for your time. Best

HI everyone, On my desktop, I have a Firefox shortcut that has a bunch of tinyurl in the target field that opens a load of tabs for me.

Other desktop firefox shortcuts open the browser normally on my homepage.

The problem is, the target field isn't big enough, there's only room for 5 tinyurls. Or to be exact, any after the first 5 are ignored. Really, I need more, as many as 10. Is there another way of achieving this?

Note that I want this to be applied to a single Firefox desktop shortcut, so I can have one shortcut open the brower 'preloaded' with these tabs and another shortcut that opens the browser normally.

Thanks

Hi

Firefox 72.0.2 Win 8.1

When I open a new tab, the whole page doesn't load until I select that particular tab.

Is there any way of loading the content of a tab completely without having to select it, in the same way as the content would load if I open in a new window instead?

Foe example, if I were to load an Amazon page in a new tab, some of the content loads, but the page waits for the tab to be selected before loading everything else.

Many thanks

Hi, I have firefox version 72, I run the browser in normal mode, where I have about 90 cards open. Additionally I opened firefox in incognito mode today and worked there on facebook pages. I closed the browser in normal mode first, then the one in incognito. Now when I open the normal mode I don't have those 90 cards. I have "Restore previous session" enabled, I was logged in to my firefox account at shutdown. Is there any way to restore these many cards? I do not have the "Restore previous session" button in the drop-down menu.

I cannot fathom why Firefox doesn't have the drop-down list of open windows/tabs, is in some kind of rational order. This is crazy, as it could easily be in either chronological or alphabetical order! Hunting all over the list, every time I want to find a particular tab is hugely frustrating and time consuming...

How to stop firefox closingsibling tabs

Scenario: 1/ I have a search-engine tab open, and open several other pages (tabs) from this 2/ I then close the search-engine tab 3/ Firefox sometimes (not always) pops up a box to warn it's going to close multiple tabs unless I click the box to stop it

How can I stop firefox popping up this box and closing tabs that I never asked it to? I just want it to close the ONE tab that I asked it to. I know there is a setting to stop the box appearing, but that means that the tabs will be closed without warning. That's not what I want.

This is a really annoying "feature" in recent firefox versions and despite much searching, I can't find any solution to it

Windows 10 Pro, Firefox 72.0.1 64bit. Long ago, I enabled "Show tab previews in the Windows taskbar" in Options and until a week or two ago, whenever I hovered over the Firefox icon in the taskbar, a small image of the web page in each tab would appear above the taskbar. If I hovered over an image, it would then become full screen and readable. Now, hovering over the image produces a blank, greyed out screen with a rotating blue circle that eventually becomes a tiny image. This happens on all tabs except the tab for Firefox Options. This tab operates normally and will appear normal when hovered over. I have included screen prints of the above problem and hope you can provide a solution.

Hello everyone. I am an old FF Windows user, but faced something new since moved to FF on Mac. It does keep previous session when I try to troubleshoot - so I mean starting it, opening couple of tabs and trying to restart - but unfortunately it does not if FF kept opened for days or weeks. That's a pain, as lot of pinned tabs collected to the moment and I simply do not remember what was that weeks ago and it's not so easy to search throughout the history.

Of course, Startup set to Restore previous session and History set to Remember. I am aware there might be sessionstore.js or something like this, but might be there is some additional magic option to be set to avoid the issue? I am aware of that "last window to close - the only to remember" problem. This is not the case.

Just one window. Only pinned tabs. Clean window on start. No option to restore previous session (it's empty).

Appreciate any idea. Thanks.

P.S. I have found this thread, unfortunately it was left unanswered and archived: https://support.mozilla.org/ru/questions/1174479

Hello, and thanks for reading my post.

I have Firefox 73.0 on a Windows 10 PC and, as in the past, have configured this version to "restore previous session" at startup by checking the appropriate box in Tools --> Options.

However, I've noticed that, when restarting Firefox (from it simply being "off", not necessarily from a crash of some kind), the various windows I had open DO restore...but in a different order than before.

How can I make them come back in the same order, please? (Please note that, for now at least, I'm asking about individual windows, not specifically about tabs within the same window.)

Thank you very much, Bram Weiser
