Making tabs open next to the tab you have open

I just got the beta version of firefox 28 version 1. I have tab mix plus as my tab manager. When I went to 28 it stopped opening my tabs next to the one that I am using. It now open them at the end of the line of tabs. I mean that if I have 15 tabs open, as I do now, and I am focused on the 5th tab and want something to open next to it, it will no longer do so it will open after the 15th tab. I have tab mix set to have the tabs open after the tab that I am focusing on.

I realize that most will find this unimportant, but it is a pain in the rear when you want the tab in one place and it opens in a different different place!

Firefox used to save passwords for yahoo Mail, but lately does not seem to be working. I have 2 mail accounts and passwords with Yahoo. I have read through and clicked all the things about allowing passwords to be saved but nothing is working. I do not have this problem with Explorer. If this is just something that Yahoo has done to shut out Firefox then so be it, but if there is something that can be done I would appreciate the help.

I read through other Q&A's on this, looks like a big problem all over, but many of the so-called solutions about bookmarks, etc I can't understand what to do. Many say "solved" but I do not see any solution.

If I try to load videos that are hosted on YouTube, they will not load, they will not even show a placeholder to show that anything should be there. If I go to YouTube, the site will not load with any video. All I get is a list of links to subscribed channels and my account and all that crap, nothing that looks even remotely like a video. This has occurred only since 28 beta 2 was installed.

How do I make Firefox Sync synchronize manually?

This is my situation:

I sync my bookmarks, passwords and extensions using Firefox Sync.

When I start up Firefox, it asks me for my master password because Firefox sync wants to sync on startup and I have a master password set up.

So what happens is, I'm typing a website address, the master password dialog pops up, receives focus, and I accidentally type a part of the website address in the password dialog, which I dismiss using escape, and then I have to retype the website address.

A solution for me would be to disable automatic syncing (or at least just after startup).

Is there a way of doing this?

(I'm not scared of the about:config, but couldn't find anything there that would fix this. Alternatively, could I file this as a feature request in Bugzilla, or as a UX issue?)

I've been using FF Touch for a few days now - and love it! From I will like it even more when it's available in the Windows store so I can install it on my Surface RT. However I have a few basic user questions: 1. The only way I can find to access the Favorites and History is by launching a new tab - is there another way? 2. How can I define Home, Search prefs, etc? 3. Touch doesn't sync with the desktop version; will the production version? 4. Any idea on when this will be available in Windows 8 store? 5. Clear cache?

I use Firefox on three PCs and FF Sync is enabled on all of them. Two out of three PCs display the "quick dial" feature on the new tab page (6 most used pages) while the third PC only displays a blank page. Why is this not synced? Or is it supposed to be synced in the first place? (I have "Options" checked in sync options.)

recently (about few months ago), i found the profile drop down menu on www.zhihu.com no longer works. i also noticed that other mouse over funtions are disabled too.

oddly, the problem only seems to appear on firefox on my laptop. other browsers on this computer(ie, chrome) or firefox on my other desktop computer works completely fine. so i don't think it's a website-related issue.

methods tried but didn't help: turning off hardware accelaeration. clear cookies. safe mode. reset firefox. migrating profiles and firefox program files from desktop computer to laptop. completely reinstall firefox.

any idea?

and sorry for my poor english expression, it is a second language and i'm not very good at it :-)

Nightly crashes on startup and does not produce a crash report as of the latest update. It ran just fine yesterday and I have not made any changes to my system. I am running on Win 7 64 bit with all recent updates. I have also attempted to open Nightly in safemode using the shift key but it crashes before it is able to do so and have also tried using a different profile as well. Note: I am posting this through the Firefox Beta build and not Nightly. Attached is the windows crash report.
