I'm a realtor and I use firefox as my browser bc I have all apple products and an esign portal that I use doesn't work with explorer. Two days ago firefox stopped allowing me to open my MLS browser Navicamls.net. I can open it on internet explorer or any other computer that is not a mac, but I can no longer open it using firefox.

it's extremely annoying to have to stop what i'm doing and play "lets find the active tab" when i have tons of youtube videos qued in open tabs. in opera, the logic is there out of the box, but in firefox, it doesn't exist. why such logic wouldn't exist is beyond me, but i see this as an annoying problem that needs fixed. i want to simply glance up at the tabs and see which one is playing without having to spend time digging through the open tabs to find the one that's playing or having to freakin memorize which one it was i don't have time for that.

i followed the guide in this thread: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1291998 i did exactly everything as instructed but it did absolutely nothing, no change at all.

I recently had to reinstall firefox due to a few issues. Before the reinstall, when I opened a new tab it would open as my home page. After I reinstalled it, I was able to set up my homepage URL but there is no option for new tabs to open wth the same page. The only options for new tabs are blank page or the default firefox homepage. This was never an issue before the reinstall.

How do I fix this? Has the option been moved somewhere else?

Every time I open a new tab or go to a tab that I have open, when I come back after my computer has been asleep and try to search for something or refresh a tab, it will give me an error message. I have to close the tab and search again then it works, sometimes I have to do it 2 or 3 times to get it to work. This just started happening with MacOS Catalina 10.15.7 and FireFox 103.0.2 updates in the last few weeks. I tried restarting my computer and I deleted the Firefox app and reinstalled but nothing helps.

So I can't believe Firefox has been around this long and still hasn't made a tab preview like the one on the new google chrome update. I can't even find an add-on anywhere. So please devs make this a feature. I know that there is an option to see the preview of each tab in the windows taskbar but that is just messy when there are a lot of open tabs because you can't just click on the open window and jump right into you left off you have to look through each and every open tab to find the right one. IMO this seems like a great add-on considering other browsers already have their own version of this. Below is the Preview tab that firefox already has and it just sucks imo.

Hello, please how do I set up the browser so that the duplicate tab opens next to the one I want duplicated. Now the duplicated tab opens at the end of all the open tabs which is really annoying and not logical at all. I am using windows 10. Thanks

Hello, I'm currently running firefox developer edition and i'm facing a weird bug: When firefox is started, opening a web url from outside of firefox window does'nt work and display error message: "Firefox is already running but is not responding...". It expects that i close all instance of firefox instead of just opening url in a new tab.

Do you have any idea?

I'm working on version 105.0b2 with two profiles on an ubuntu 22

so i just started up my computer, and i have the start up preferences set to restoring previous session. this usually works out just fine, even when firefox updates. however, this time (for the second time all around) it didn't go right. for some reason, the tabs opened up are from over two months ago from june, rather than my previous session. this is the second time something like this has happened to me.

i checked my homepages, and the alternate profile, and both seemed normal. (the homepage is the firefox home and the alt profile is the bare, the profile before i imported my bookmarks, passwords, add-ons, etc etc) reopening my previous tabs hasn't been too much of a hassle, but i don't want to make a habit of this. i have very limited technical acumen, so please be detailed and specific in your reply, i do genuinely need my hand held here.

if you have any more questions for me i'm happy to answer. thank you in advance!

I'm using three synced Firefoxes on respective Windows PCs. Everything is syncing just fine, except for the windows name of one of those PCs. The list displays what seems like its first default windows computer name (i.e. DESKTOP-xxxxxx). Is there a way to update those names?

Hello, From FF 99 I have removed the floating tabs with CSS code but after updating to 104 instead of the active tab being differentiated with a shadow it now has a black border. Is there any way to change that back while still keeping the CSS code I have for the floating tabs?

The code I have is: .tab-background{ border-radius: 0px 0px !important; margin-bottom: 0px !important; } .tabbrowser-tab:not([selected=true]):not([multiselected=true]) .tab-background{ background-color: color-mix(in srgb, currentColor 5%, transparent); } .tab-background{ border-color: transparent !important }

Thanks.

Hello, for my study I'm searching a lot of information on different websites for different school subjects and have currently accumulated over 1000 tabs open/active in my Firefox (web) on my laptop. I usually open websites and don't close them with the assumption and just to be on the safe side I might need them later. However, I would like to group/bundle these tabs into different categories according to the subjects I'm working to keep it manageable. Is this possible (preferably not by means of an add-on)?
