Hi!

I've a problem with my Firefox! Each time I try to launch it, I get the same annoying message: "Oops! Your tab just crashed. We can help. Choose Restore this tab"

But whatever I do, either clicking on the Restore Tab, or trying to open any page, it doesn't do nothing at all, it remains on that page!

Photo included.

Please help!

Thank you!

Hello guys, this would be a little awkward. Since I've run into this problem a limited number of times and I can't reproduce it. But it does appear frequently and is very annoying. I had to ask here for advice and help.

The device I use is a MacBook, running the official version of Firefox, and as far as I know this problem has been there for at least half a year. I'm used to keyboard operations, usually I use Cmd+T to create a new tab, then the cursor is focused on the address bar, and I type the URL. Since I'm typing an address that I visit often, maybe I just type the first few letters, the URL gets autocompleted, and then I just hit enter and the page opens in my new tab. But sometimes I hit enter twice (eg not English input method). At this time, I noticed that in addition to the URL I wanted to open, there's an additional tab. This tab was blank, or the page I just visit.

From my personal understanding, I may have performed the above operations to create a new tab or clone a tab at the same time. But I don't think my operations will cause these to happen concurrently.

Below are the extensions that I have installed, in my impression I don't get this bug in Windows, but I don't use Windows a lot. In addition, my MacBook keys may be sticky, or it may be a system problem.

hi, back a month later after posting this ( https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1387447 )

i didn't get a chance to implement the solution because by the time i had received it, i had already opened everything back up manually, and closed out firefox multiple times (when i first started up and noticed missing tabs), which i presume created a new session. i can soundly say its happened and i think i've pinned down the issue. it seems that when i update firefox, it restarts tabs from around the time of the previous update. is there something that could be causing this? i've scrounged my session back up data, and none of them contain my previous tabs, and my alternate session doesn't either. my actual previous tabs are shown in my recent history, so there should be no reason it opens tabs from august right? this time after the update firefox disabled all of my add-ons and my theme, which it has never done to me before.

(i also noticed two login.json from may and june respectively that have been labelled corrupt. could that be an issue? my latest one however, seems uncorrupted, from the day of and day before posting this reply.)

if you could kindly help me, please do. thank you in advance.

Hi,

I have browser.tabs.insertAfterCurrent and browser.tabs.insertRelatedAfterCurrent set to false because this is what best suits my needs in most cases. However, there are some occasions when I'd like to open some links in a new tab after the current one and not at the end. Is there a way, shortcut/addon/anything I could achieve this?

Thanks!

This might already have been solved, but I can't seem to find it.

Problem scenario: Two Firefox windows, on separate monitors. The primary monitor is where I do all my browsing, but the secondary one I only have a tab with some type of static page. (Documentation, media, or auto-refreshing page on localhost for web-dev, etc..).

My issue is that sometimes I alt+tab to the second Firefox window by mistake, then tab to e.g. Discord and open a link in it before I have tabbed back to my main Firefox window. Windows/Discord/Firefox will then choose to open the link in the Firefox window that was last active/brought to the front, instead of my main Firefox window on my primary monitor.

Possible solutions:

  • UI Setting in the settings menu when you have more than 1 window open, to toggle if the window is the main window.
  • Figure out what is the active window by logging time it has been active compared to other window(s) - probably not ideal, in case you go AFK with the "wrong" window switched to the front.
  • Ability to set main window by drawn screen size. In my case, my main window is on a 2560 x 1440 monitor, while secondary monitor is just a 1920 x 1080.
  • Query the OS what monitor number is the primary, secondary etc - then assign Firefox window to the applicable monitor number.

Hi, Ik wil een bug melden met Firefox. Andere browsers (Chrome en Edge) hebben hier geen last van. Op dit moment gebruik ik versie 105.0.3 op een Windows 10 desktop.

Als ik een *ics bestand heb gedownload en importeer in mijn google agenda, blijft Firefox tabbladen openen. Ik moet de browser met de X afsluiten. Add ons: Adblocker Ultimate, Pinterest save button, Flagfox and LT (Taal tool in Nederlands).

Bovendien als ik 1 voor 1 door mijn tijdlijn scrol op Facebook begint Firefox als een dolle naar beneden te scrollen, zonder dat ik dan nog de scroll slider aanraak.

Misschien krijgen jullie meer meldingen en is dit op te lossen met een update?

Hoping there might be a solution for how to recover a long term ongoing browsing session after it has disappeared. After the last computer restart, I opened Firefox and tried to restore the last session like I have done countless times in the past but the "Restore previous session" button under history was greyed out. Firefox has always been reliable over the years about recovering tabs up until now.

Any advice? Thanks in advance for the help

I opened Firefox today, and the screenshot opened in a new tab. I *never* want to see *ANY* of these popups at all ever. I've already gone into about:config and turned off "Whats New", Studies, and Pocket (first thing I do on any Firefox install). I still see things like this, or "Try New Themes" or other ones like that. I would hope there is a universal, forever and always "TURN THIS OFF" setting that I'm not seeing. Thanks for your time.

If not, can this be "bug reported"? As it is clearly a bug not to allow users to disable this.

I'm on Windows 10 if that makes a difference.
