Will there be a generic icon for websites without favicons?

I don't know if this is a problem with my installation, but websites without specific favicons (e.g.: https://forum.librivox.org/index.php?sid=fd7dca1ba59c207dd25121695677d565) don't have a placeholder icon in the tab. Is this intended behavior? There's the globe icon for bookmarks without favicons, couldn't that be used if a website doesn't have one? I think that would contribute to some visual consistency :)

I have looked across various support forums for information on this, I only see posts regarding favicons and bookmarks, not the tab itself, so apologies if this has been asked and answered already!

When I pin a tab, then quit Firefox, the pin is lost forever.

Most other tickets I've seen are about restoring them, but I'm looking for some setting to change so that I can pin tabs.

My history is set to: Remember My setting to delete all cookies and site data on close is unchecked

Any ideas?


Thanks a million!

Hi guys.

I can't characterize websites because of the favicon overlaid by the speaker symbol (directly in the YouTube tab).

Is there a way to display the speaker symbol and the favicon at the same time? Or not display the speaker symbol at all, because it is important for me to know which website is in the TAB. I don't need to see the speaker, but the favicon of the website. See attached screenshot.

Of course, the speaker icon only appears when audio is active on a particular website (for example, this applies to a YouTube website).

Thanks.

Mike

Is there a way to always show the tab close button on the tabs? Or perhaps to show the button on hover of the tab? Chrome does this and I find that very helpful, in cases where I want to close a tab and do not want to re-open that page.

Some context: When you have many tabs open (I know, who does that?) and you want to close some of them, but do not want to select those tabs, currently you can right-click and scroll through the menu to the `Close Tab` option. This is slow and a bit clunky. The `Close Tab` menu option is buried in the bottom-middle of the list.

This issue is somewhat complicated by the fact that I use the excellent Auto-Tab Discard extension to discard/sleep tabs. (https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/auto-tab-discard/) So when a tab is discarded, and you click on it, the tab reloads. Which is silly when you just want to close it.

Anyone aware of a way to always show the close-tab button, or show on hover?

Thanks!

I don't know if I'm the only one who used this feature, but when I opened a new tab I could just drop some copied text in there, go to another tab do something, then go back to that new tab where the text was copied, take the copy once more from the bar and go back to the previous tab. The text in the new tab didn't disappear all the time when new tab was "opened". Currently in version 89.0 this functionality disappeared and when I change from new tab to other tab text from the "search bar" disappear, the funniest thing is this functionality saved me a lot of time because I didn't have to play with any notepad or anything to store copied things. Is there any option to bring it back?

Hi, I use a PC under W7.

with FF88, the zone of the activated/unused tabs was above the screen, below the listed tabs bar (like in the snapshot).

With FF89, this zone is now empty (background in blue in the snapshot) and only the active tab appears below the window (on the right down in the snapshot for the current tab).

It makes FF simply unusable ! Need your help to come back to a normal situation : all tabs in the blue bar where they were.

thanks a lot for your help. Regards, Philippe

I don't know if its an issue with the theme or Firefox itself (I think it's Firefox because it already happened on previous versions), but when I open certain number of tabs, or a tab with certain characteristics that I don't know, the whole row of tabs increases its height. And it annoys me. Thanks beforehand!

Whenever I search something and follow a link, or if I'm on a page and click a link to another site or page, the history in the tab gets overwritten.

I've only noticed it this month and if I'm looking for something quickly its extremely frustrating having to re search with the same parameters over and over or remember to open every search in its own tab.

I've had a hard time searching this issue, I don't know if my terminology is right or if it's just a very niche issue I'm having.

Any help would be EXTREMELY appreciated.

I've noticed this happening in the past week. Example #1 I used Google search to look for Japanese dogs & clicked on Wikipedia In addition a tab on debt popped up on its own. Here's a link to it: https://go.debthelpguide.com/api/offer

Example #2 I logged into citi.com to check my credit card activity In addition a tab which was of a sexual nature popped up on its own. I was so shocked I didn't think of saving a link for it.

It doesn't happen on all tabs I am using. Thank you in advance for your help.

Hard to hit the "right spot" on the X icon when closing a tab - only a very small area gets a response

When I try to close a tab, if I place my cursor over the X icon and click, nothing happens. If I carefully hover the tip of my cursor over the very bottom of the (invisible) box around the X, the box will turn darker grey and I can finally click and close the tab. I'd estimate the grey box around the X is 1cmx1cm, but only the bottom 1-2mm elicit a response.

I have restarted Firefox and my computer. My browser version is up to date. I am not using any extensions. I am on a 2009 Mac running Yosemite.

For a few days now this thing with the tabs is driving me crazy. When I click on some link a new tab opens, then I click on another link another tab opens. Following some instructions I went to about:config where I was asked to look for neww, then change the default from 3 to 1. That solved the issue with opening multiple tabs, but now when in gmail and I click on a link it remains in the same page and I have to keep getting back to gmail to continue reading my emails.

That was not the behavior before. When I clicked on a link in my email I was taking to a new tab. Which was OK. But then lately every time I click on something it keeps opening new tabs. This is so annoying.

What can I do to go back to the settings I had a week or more ago.

This is FRUSTRATING!!!!

Thanks so much for your help on this matter.
