I lost all my tabs recently & wanted to restore them. The advice via Help topic was to click the 3 horizontal lines, click history & then click "restore previous session" However I do not have that selection. I have the other shown but not restore previous session. I do have the latest version of FF & am on chrome. I was able to restore my tabs one at a time, but in the future I would like the ability to easily restore the whole session. Thanks for any suggestions.

I work with salesforce and got a MacBook Pro a few days ago and now I worked in some chart and wanted to switch between Columns with the tab button but It won’t work. I always have to click the next column with the mouse. This is taking a lot of time and with a windows pc, I works totally normal. But know I’m really confused what to do. Because when I press the tab button I only goes to the forward and back button and so on

I need so use Firefox as salesforce only works perfectly fine with Firefox. In safari i can switch like with a windows computer

Can someone please help me?

Thank you in advance!!

Hi, I have got an issue concerning switching tabs. Thus, here is the thing: I work with multiple tabs, and if I open a new tab (Firefox home), start typing and when you have to switch tabs by ctrl+tab so you do it, a text in a new tab text always will be selected. Seems like no problem, however, If I accidentally press keys (except for arrow keys), all search text will disappear right away. Arrow keys only can move a cursor. Therefore, it is just annoying because you always wanna press arrow keys.

Sorry for my English but I hope you got it rightly.

Firefox closes multiple tabs when I'm closing only one (using x on tab). It doesn't happen every time. But it seems like it happens when I am working on something. I will open a new tab to research something I am working on. Sometimes I open one tab, sometimes three or more. Once I find my answer I will close the unneeded tab(s) and it will also close the main tab I'm working with even though I didn't click the x on that one. When closing old tabs to left this never happens. Only the tabs to the left of what I'm working on. I'm afraid to close tabs now. I tried it in safe mode and was still able to recreate the problem. I also made sure that the browser is up do date. It is. I'm on a Lenovo ThinkPad with Windows 10 Pro 20H2. Processor Intel(R) Core(TM) i7-3520M CPU @ 2.90GHz 2.90 GHz Installed RAM 8.00 GB (7.60 GB usable) System type 64-bit operating system, x64-based processor Drive SanDisk SSD PLUS 240GB SATA III 6G/s 2.5" 7mm

Ideas? Thanks!

There are lot of previous topics on "Bookmarks Toolbar "Only Show on New Tab" option not working"

But I DON'T like the proposed solution at all.

"New tab" is really new- which was just appear in tabbar. Regardless of a new tab content, it could be whatever of:

  • blank page (my case)
  • Firefox Home page
  • Some addon start page

The new tab should be still "new" to make a decision to show the bookmarks tabbar in it.

So, the tab is new when:

  • it was just appear
  • the tab content is rendered only once (didn't go to any other URL)

As a programmer, I'm sure it's not difficult to fix, isn't it?

From the number of the previous reports you can see how many users don't expect the current behavior (for me, Firefox 94.0 don't show bookmarks tabbar in new blank tab).

I lost 300ish tabs because I clicked the "restore previous session" button a few seconds before I got the final confirmation that my internet was activated because I was impatient. Following various other similar questions, I've used ShadowExplorer to grab the previous.jsonlz4, recovery.baklz4, and recovery.jsonlz4 and through the use of https://www.jeffersonscher.com/ffu/scrounger.html I have confirmed that they are the correct browsing session or are close enough. I cannot get Firefox to use these files when they're in the Users/Name/AppData/Roaming/Mozilla/Firefox/Profiles/string of characters.default-release folder (renaming the current iterations to replace them & even removing them from the folder didn't work, it still restored my session of looking up how to restore the session before that one), and I'm worried that it's because they aren't complete sine the scrounging tool eventually stops showing characters in its display (instead it's four zero's arranged in a square) and it can't identify beyond the first 5 tabs. There weren't any truly important tabs open, mostly stuff that I came across by chance that I thought I'd look at sooner than I did and will be difficult to find again and a backlog from various YouTubers I'm subscribed to because I hate "watch later". Is there anything I can do, or should I just give up on restoring this session?

I have recently switched from Chrome to Firefox. So far, it is going very well. There is just one issue that bothers me with regards to how Firefox handles opening new private windows.

In Chrome, when you right-clicked on a link in a regular window and opened that link in an incognito window, it would (assuming you had an existing incognito window open) open it in an existing incognito window.

I was just wondering if there exists any method of replicating this (albeit quirky) behavior within Firefox.

As it was in Chrome, Firefox opts the same path and disables fully-fledged tabbed window opening with "window.open()" options. Dear browser vendors, world is not made of SPA but it has MPA(Multi-Page Application) too. We have a large enterprise multi-window web application. Hundreds of fields cannot fit into SPA's small windows and we need full pages.

So we are opening some kind of workspace windows(New Tabbed Window) and users open many tabs over there. Let's say user is using AppA then its child windows as tabs, than s/he needs to open AppB, it opens a new browser window(if it is not tabbed, its child windows open in app A window) and opens child windows as tabs.

Historically, window.open API had many options for new windows, yes world changed and ignoring them has some logical reasons but; At least add this tabbed option as a new option in window.open() call ie. "complete-window=true". It would do what CTRL+N is doing.

Please, to fix it with a configuration is not an option for thousands users.

[Locked as a duplicate of https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1362864. Please follow up there, thanks.]

When I start to move a tab to another location, a small box attached to the bottom of the tab appears with the same info that's on the tab. If I move the tab to a different location, many of my tabs disappear and I have to find them in bookmarks to put them back. Is there any way to remove that little box attached to the bottom of the tab?

Hello, My macbook was very slow and Firefox kept it crashing, so I thought I would tidy up my FF windows and tabs. I used the tip I copied below, but nothing happens when I click the bookmark folder which contains all my tabs (in fact I have several such folders). I have looked around for a solution, in vain. Can someone help? The easier the better as I am not a techie. My macbook's MACOS is Catalina (up to date for my macbook pro 9.2, mid 2012), and I'm using FF v. 95.0.2. Many thanks.

Copy of Mozilla help tip: To bookmark all open tabs at once: Right-click on any of the tabs, choose Select All Tabs from the context menu, then right-click on any tab and select Bookmark Tabs…. Give the new bookmarks folder a name and choose which folder to store it in. Click Add Bookmarks to finish.
