Hi guys,

I don't know if this is happening to you too, but it's getting me crazy. Since the latest upgrade (firefox 75), I open the program and start working normally. After one hour or so, I can not open any new tab, I have to close everything and reopen firefox again to start opening the same pages I got before to continue working with one more tab. For the first hour, everything is working as normal.

This also happens if I try to open a new window instead of a new tab.

I have tried to reset the profile but this does not do anything. Also, I have tested to start in safe mode without any add-on, but the problem is still there.

Anyone with the same problem?

Thanks!

Would like a way to save the pinned and other tabs I have open in someplace, so when they get deleted I don't have to rummage thru last months History and dig out each one over again. A simple "Save this layout with date and name" somewhere would be great.

I'm having an issue when I select the Bookmarks or History menus from the toolbar. The final button on the bottom is cut off, which I think takes you to the pop-out window to view your library. The attached screenshot kind of shows what's going on. The cut off point is where the Windows taskbar starts, I wasn't able to capture it in the screenshot.

This has been asked elsewhere, but my situation is different as I run every Firefox session in a Sandbox which deletes after exit. I don't generally use Firefox signed in, but when I do sign in I get two emails every time, and it is driving me nuts.

I can find a preference or security setting to turn these off. The risk should be mine to take if I so wish it; hate nannying.

Anyone got a solution? Or even a suggestion.

When I reopen a closed tab, sometimes it would just load the previous page rather than the last opened page. For example, if I was on the Guardian homepage and I clicked on an article, closed the tab, then reopened with Cmd+Shift+T, occasionally it would load the Guardian homepage instead. I can get back to the article by going back a page (Cmd + left arrow), which is kinda weird.

I am running with ubuntu 18.04.3 and firefox 75

This is strange and i can't figure it out. I will be browsing along and, suddenly, I am in a new window. When this happens the current tab becomes a new window. As an interesting aside I also notice that the firefox icon does not show me that I now have two windows open. My suspicion is that I am pressing a wrong key but I can't seem to be able to do it on purpose so I have no idea what I am doing to cause this, or how to stop it.

thank you...........
