Two months ago, I updated to Windows 11. Two days ago, there was an update for Windows. Now my Firefox will not open the tabs. Is there some setting I need to change someplace? Also when I use the Google search it will not search for anything as well. When I opened MS Edge, sometimes I can get my tabs to open. When I close down the next time I open Firefox it will not open my saved Tabs

I always have automatic updates enabled, using latest Firefox version. I have enabled the options 'Open Previous Windows and tabs' or in earlier versions it was 'restore previous sessions' on my system windows 10 pro from past 2 years.

I have lost about 15+ precious tabs in firefox (1 week of my research work). Even in history it is not showing those tabs.

I was doing my research work / thesis, gone through about 500+ webpages / articles and selected the best, and aligned the tabs in sequence. Today i have opened the 'Private Window' doing some surfing, After few minutes I closed my 'Firefox window of research' as that was using 'too much' amount of ram. After 15 minutes i have closed the 'Private Window' also.

When i opened firefox again all my tabs of Research Windows (1 week of my work) are gone, not even in history.

I must be using Google Chrome for that because chrome does not have any issues with 'Restoring Sessions' with 'Incognito Window'.

I found this: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1292666 that might offer what I need. But I can't find the browser.ssb.enabled configuration they mention there in my about:config

Hello. My pinned tabs keep disappearing - I now understand what is causing this, but I'm wondering if there is a workaround? I'd really like for my pinned tabs to show on any/every new Firefox window.

ISSUE: If I have more than one Firefox window open, and at some point during the day I close them in the wrong order, I lose all of my pinned tabs, permanently.

As an aside ... just in case the devs are reading: this seems like a very bizarre choice for default behaviour; why make it so incredibly easy for a user to unwittingly lose potentially dozens of pinned links? It's also not very obvious why it happens and have seen numerous people struggling with this issue. However, I appreciate that's how it is, so I'm simply hoping there's a solution :)

Before anyone says: 'just use tabs instead', I normally do, however, for reasons I won't go into (related to a very popular 3rd party plugin) some things open in a new window by default - there is no option to open them in a new tab, so I regularly end up with more than one Firefox window, and it would be nice to know that one false move doesn't decimate all the pinned tabs I've made.

Updated web browsing. Generally, tabs don't have a clearly defined visible outline. Bookmarks, too much space between rows, so e.g. less bookmarks are visible - have to scroll down to find. Make firefox easier to use, not harder. Need to have defined contrast on the page for each process or thing that you're doing e.g. buttons, lines, whatrever should have a clear contrast so you can see quickly. Time should be spent doing what it is you're doing, not spent trying to see firefox properly etc.

This has been happening over the last month or so. I'll be browsing with multiple tabs open and then for no apparent reason a few of my tabs will just close themselves. I'm not clicking on anything or using any shortcuts. Without any input on my part a group of maybe 3 or 4 tabs just suddenly close themselves, while the rest of my tabs remain. It doesn't seem to matter what pages the tabs are open to: google, amazon, whatever... Anybody have any ideas what's causing this? I've already tried updating, restarting, and disabling add-ons.

I regularly have 4 to 6 pinned tabs open, but would still like to be able to open my regular tabs with the `cmd+1–9` shortcuts. Is there a way to configure Firefox to use a different shortcut for the pinned tabs? It would be great to be able to have something like `cmd+option+1–9` be the pinned tabs, with `cmd+1–9` be the regular tabs.

I opened a recipe tabs weeks ago and for the past week it keeps opening back up every time I open FF. It doesn't replace any tabs that I have open already, it just opens a new tab and it is there, stalking me, every time I open the browser. I can't get it to STOP popping up. Help!!!

I absolutely love the new containers feature of Firefox. Well done, FF crew!

One feature request: when I'm on, say, a tab in my Work container and I do a Cmd-T to create a new tab, I'd like to have that tab open in whatever container I was on -- so in this example, the new tab would open in the Work container. I know there's an menu item to open a tab in a specific container, but this would make it 2 steps faster. Is this already possible?

I had a whole bunch of tabs that had been open for quite some time on my browser that I was planning to go through. I have my browser set to restore tabs / previous session each time I open so all the previous tabs remain there, and have had no problems for a long time. However the last time I tried to close Firefox it gave a warning saying I was trying to close x amount of tabs. I thought it a bit strange considering it hadn't asked me this before when closing but didn't think anything of it and closed the browser, only to open it next time to find all my open tabs had gone rather than being restored as normal.

I hadn't knowingly changed any of my settings and its still set to 'Restore previous session', and I can't work out a) why it hasn't restored it and b) what changed to prompt it to ask me if I wanted to close my tabs and then remove them rather than what it has always done!

After using Firefox for some time (from 10 to 20 minutes, usually), it simply refuses to open any new tabs, while all that were open previously continue to work normally. Click on "+" sign next to the last open tab simply produces no reaction, and the same is with "Open Link in the New Tab" command from the right-click menu. When restarted, problem disappears, just to reoccur a few minutes latter. This has started to happen about a month ago, all of the sudden. Has anyone experienced something similar? I'm on Win7, using the latest version of Firefox. I have tried to start Firefox with all the plug-ins disabled - nothing has changed. Thanks in advance!

Hi, I have a pinned tab on my firefox session. And every time I open Firefox it's there. But now I don' want it there, I've unpinned the tab and close it. But it keeps appearing pinned every time I open Firefox. My configuration for the start page is: Start of Firefox (Default) (or something similar, I don't have it in English) And my session is shared between my home and work computers (maybe this can be related) The pinned tab is open.spotify.com that opens another firefox window to log in. I haven't had any problem with other pinned tabs.

Thanks and sorry for my english.
