Recently, the tabs started to appear at the bottom of the screen instead of my preferred top, seemingly out of the blue. How may I restore them to the normal position, please? On line articles don't seem to help, it must be simple?

When I close a tab, by default Firefox selects the next tab on the right or the one on the left if the closed tab was the right-most tab. There is an option in about:config

browser.tabs.selectOwnerOnClose

When this option is set to True, firefox will focus the owner.

Neither of these two behaviours is particularly useful. I want Firefox to select the last vieved tab, not the parent, and not the one to the left/right. Currently I'm using add-on Select after closing current which does exactly what I want, however previous versions of Firefox could do this out of the box, and so can Chrome. I think most users would find it useful if this was the default behaviour, thanks!

Hello, Let's start with 'I'm not a great techie' - I have looked for the answer to my problem but either can't find it or the reply is too complex for me. I'm using Firefox 86.0.1 (updated 13 March I think) on a Mac. Recently Firefox has been crashing a lot and I used 'Restore session' to restore my tabs (7 windows, 111 tabs). I used Restore Session because the Tab Session Manager app has been stuck on 06.02.21 for ages (6 windows/50 tabs, for some reason it only shows that session, and nothing since). This morning I had to restart my Mac and this time Restore Session only restored the last two tabs I opened, maybe because I have been tinkering with Firefox preferences in order to solve the problem (trying to find out where the Tab Session Manager backup folder was for instance, which I couldn't). So my question is: how can I restore my olds tabs of 7 windows/111 tabs? Ideally with the session I am using now, which would make it 8 windows/122 tabs in all) And I have an additional small query: in my attempts to solve the above, I clicked the small red 'Autosave browser exited' (on the right of 'Add tag' in Tab Session Manager) in order to see if that helped. I must have clicked the small X because 'Autosave...' disappeared and I can't find a way to restore it. My thanks to all of you who help nincompoops like me.

I have configured Firefox to open eleven tabs when it launches. Intermittently, after Firefox has been open for a while, I find those eleven tabs duplicated so that I have twenty two tabs with the extra tabs in the same order as my startup tabsa. It just happened a minute ago. I have no idea what causes this to happen. I don't think it's anything I did. I'm on MacOS Big Sur 11.2.3 and Firefox 87.0. The last time it happened, I think I was on Catalina.

Sorry for the confusion but I need help! My computer just crashed, and after it restarted I opened FF again, and it opened up my windows and tabs where I left off like normal, except 1 of them (the one i was most recently using) opened back up the tabs I had open probably around a month ago, instead of the ones I was just using. To make it worse, they're not in my history either. The other windows are fine with their current tabs, but this one that I was using for work just decided throw itself back in time, and I need to know if there's some way I can recover the closed tabs?

Why, why why? Why is every step forward (supposedly) for Firefox a step back for my experience?

Why do you continue to break things instead of fix them? Why?

Okay, enough of my rhetorical questions, here is my real question:

With my install of 78.8.0, my tabs moved above the location bar again. How do I get them back to below?

I don't see another place to post this. If someone provides a link to a tracker I'll be happy to repost. I should also probably open these items in different posts. I will do so if required.

I see a few places where Multi-Account Containers can be improved:

1) More icons - ability to use all Google Material Icons, even if the ID is manually entered 2) More colors - with color wheel or entry of #RGB 3) From the Multi-Account Containers Support page, "The sync feature will align Multi-Account Containers on different computers" - This does not appear to be working with v87 on two systems. 4) Also from that page, "Assign a website to a container" does not appear to be documented: Three dot Page Actions in address bar > Alway open this in a container.

Am I missing existing functionality or documentation?

Thanks!

Hello, I use Windows 7 with a Gateway computer. On the "new tab" page I pin sites,but, they are removed sooner or later for new sites. When I pin a site , I expect it to remain . So, even if I do not visit a site for a long time, is there a way to keep my pinned sites from being displaced ? Also, instructions say, "to show more or fewer top sites" to hover until the edit link appears. I try hovering all over but can not get the edit link to appear. Any help will be much appreciated. Thank you

Just added New Tab Version 1 to Firefox version 72.0.2 with DuckDuckGo as Search Engine and default page.

When I call for a new tab I get the message - "Access to the File Was Denied" and "The file at moz-extension://7b4a03b3-0438-454e-bf65-9629bce7ae58/newtab.html is not readable."

However, if I then click on the Firefox Home Page Icon (little house icon) I get straight to the Home Page with the search function available.

Anyone know why I get this interim error message, or why I don't get transferred straight to the Home Page?

When Instagram plays a video and I move to another tab (other than wherein instagram.com is open) then suddenly the Instagram video stops playing completely.

How on earth is this possible in "privacy first" Firefox? When did I gave permission for a video to stop playing just by clicking another tab?

I want a standard HTML5 video to continue to play in any of the tabs that are open regardless of which tab I am clicking-on in the middle of play. Once upon a time that was the case. I want to go back to that state please.
