I use a MacBook Pro with MacOS 10.11 and the latest version of FireFox (72.0.2) and I'm unable to figure out how to close multiple tabs at once.

With past versions of FireFox, I could bring up the context menu (by holding down the control key and clicking on a tab) and choose "Close other tabs" or choose "Close tabs to the right of this tab." I could also choose either option from the File menu, but all those options seem to be gone now and I can't even bring up the Context menu any more. Maybe if I had a two-button mouse, I could click the right button, but you should be able to do the same thing with the standard trackpad that comes with the MacBook. I'm sorry.

Anyway, how do you close multiple tabs?

Thank you so much.

How to switch back Firefox display after displaying Source Page View with Ctrl-U

The CTRL-U shortcut displays the source version of the current page. In some specific situations, this feature can be useful, but not very often for regular users (in contrast to developers). Unfortunately I can't find a way to switch back from this view: Ctrl-U isn't a toggle and there's no other shortcut that could be used to display initial view again. Also, I haven't found a menu command useful in such situation.

Also it is impossible to disable Firefox shortcuts selectively. Thus if you press Ctrl-U by chance then you cant view the original rendered page version and you lost what you entered in editing fields on the page.

Is there a way to achieve some level of control over this unwanted "improvement"?

I have some sites that I visit specific pages on. For example, https://www.futilitycloset.com/category/technology/. When I start typing "fu", Firefox suggests first the base domain, futilitycloset.com, even though I never go to the main page. I've tried using shift+delete when the base domain is selected, but it's still there the next time I type "fu". Is this possible?

Ease of access to my university portal on startup

Hey guys! I'm a student and so it's useful for me to make my university's student portal as my homepage. However, whenever I start up Firefox, it goes to the 'Authentication required - Mozilla Firefox' popup login area before I can get into my portal. The details are already auto-filled, but I have to hit OK every time. It's more of a quality-of-life and very minor problem, but would there be a way for me to just click the Firefox icon and instantly be logged in automatically? Maybe a custom URL to set as the homepage, or some other way I have to go to make this happen. Thanks so much all! Any replies would be massively appreciated!

I have a website which makes ajax requests to some endpoints which can take more than a minute (depending on how busy the server might be). In the recent version of firefox (81), it seems like after about a minute, the request appears to time out without an error message. I checked against other browsers and none seem to have the same issue.

Was this behavior expected out of version 81? I don't see anything in the release notes about this kind of change.

There is a business opportunity for future web browser upgrades to add a function in settings for the browser to auto remember the last used zoom level e.g. +150% settings based on the unique website address. As different web publishers use different font sizes between different web domains or even within the same article, it makes ergonomic and business sense for our global aging population to have a browser that targets this untapped opportunity or to be better marketed to the elderly. This can be a delegated project to a highly skilled outsourced engineer to max your profits, salary increase, and max charity donations to orphans

Hi everyone :)

I didn't find anything about it: I'm looking for a shortcut to open links in the private window without opening the context menu (right click)

I know that.....:

  • CTRL + Click open in a new Tab (Or middle click)
  • CTRL + SHIFT + Click open in a new Tab and focus on this new tab (or SHIFT + middle click)
  • SHIFT + Click open the link in a new Window

But actually I didn't find any combination to open it in a new private window. Even the context menu "Open Link in a new private window" isn't what I'm looking for as I don't want the new window to be on top.

Is there a way to do it, maybe an extension ?

Thanks for reading, Alex.
