Single click acts like double click on tab? Mac 10.15.4, FF 76.0.1 (super annoying on 4K screen)

if I am selecting tabs rapidly, say select tab number 5, then quickly move to tab 7 and single click to show it. Suddenly FF enlarges to fill the screen as if I selected the tab and double clicked it. This does NOT occur if I do it slowly. I often do this to move two tabs closer together so I can keystroke between them for comparison (changing tabs using the keystroke does not cause the problem)

I have been very careful to ensure a single click occurs, and I can replicate it to happen every time. If I move SLOWLY, and click say after a second, it behaves as I would expect and simply selects the tab.

Since I have a 4K screen, FF is usually in the middle taking up about 1/3 of the area and is very usable. When the screen is blown out to the edges, text is hard to read as lines are so long, and I can't see other apps I have up for reference without resizing the window.

BTW, the double click does not do a mac ZOOM, enlarging the window to be 'full screen' as happens when clicking the green dot. Instead if behaves exactly as it does when double clicking on a tab, enlarging the window to go edge to edge and under the main menu to the bottom of the screen.

I tried doing a safe mode restart, and the same problem occurs when no extensions are loaded.

Is this a setting or preference somewhere, and can anyone else see this happening? I only have 1 mac to test on. Mac OSX 10.15.4, FF 76.0.1

When opening Firefox and it's restoring tabs from the previous session, it loads different tabs compared to how I left them. How to fix this?

Imagine the following scenario: 1. I go to a search engine and look for "dogs". 2. From the result page I click on a link to a dog page. 3. I close the browser. 4. I open the browser again later. 5. The tab that is supposed to be the restored dog page is the dog result page of the search engine instead.

It seems like firefox sometimes isn't saving the actually last page but instead some of the previous ones.

I am using Firefox 76.0.1 with addons uMatrix, uBlock, OneTab

Thanks for the help, cheers

Just wondering if anyone else is having the same issues, every so often, when I open a new tab and enter a website name and hit enter the tab closes and returns me to the main tab that I had open. It never happens twice in a row and is often unpredictable when it happens. Unsure if it is a bug or just some setting that might be causing it? I am using an up-to-date browser in a windows 10 environment. Thanks for any comments or suggestions.

Don't know if this is connected to my previous question about being unable to login to bt email. After refreshing Firefox, left click on a link opens it in same tab instead of separate tab. In options, Open links in tabs instead of new windows and When you open a link in a new tab, switch to it immediately are both checked. This is happening on my pc and laptop. I know I can centre wheel click or right click and open in new tab but why has behavior of years stopped working. I am fast losing faith in Firefox.

I was trying to customize the Firefox, I'd spent hours on it, no ideal solution yet.

1. I'd like to use "right click" instead of "mid click" to close a tab. 2. remove "x" on the tab 3. use"shift+ right click" to get tab menu. 4. always open in a new tab when I type in address bar. 5. always open in a new tab when I drag a link. 6. stay on the current tab when I open a new tab.

I was using another browser, as to the privacy issue, I had to switch to Firefox. If I can get all those preferences back, that would help alot. Any help would be appreciated.

bold textHi, I love pinned tab functionality. I use them to keep open pages that I often need to go back (mail / social / monitoring etc). I'd like to configure a pinned tab to *never* navigate to a different url, is this possibile?

A pinned tab navigates to a different URL when: - the tab is selected and I click on a link on a different app. ( for example Outlook) - I type a new URL on the address bar.

I would like to configure Firefox to always use a new tab in these 2 cases. Similar to what happens when I click on a bookmark link.

thanks!

Using Firefox on Linus Mint

Before the latest "upgrade" there were two options relating to tabs "Close Tabs To The Right" and "Close Other Tabs" Now there is an options marked "Close Multiples Tables" which means I have to make an extra, painful and unneccesary click before being able to close tabs.

Is there a way to return it to how it should be?

I have a ton of tabs open on my iphone and was looking for an easy way to clean them up. I have everything synced up between my macbook and my iphone. Is there a way to close tabs on my iphone from my macbook? Going through all of the sidebar tabs on a big screen is so much quicker but I'm not seeing a way to close tabs across all devices. Any advice would be great. If this isn't possible, this would be a great feature to have added to firefox. Thanks.

I used to use the Developer's edition of Firefox until a few months ago when the Network->Request tab of the Developer's Tools stopped displaying parameters. I've read many posts talking about a 'Params' tab, but I don't seem to have a tab with that name and have always found parameters under the Request tab. I don't recall downloading any updates, and I don't use any add ons. It just simply says "No parameters for this request" - despite being 100% certain there were parameters. I attempted several uninstall and reinstall attempts, but was never able to get them to reappear.

I switched to regular Firefox (Currently on version 78.0.2) and the problem was not present, until earlier this week. Now I am at a loss. I've searched and the only thing I've been able to find is a situation 3 years ago on Firefox 58 that was resolved.

This is happening for both POST and GET requests. Any suggestions are appreciated.

So when I use Firefox on my devices (2 PCs and 2 phones) often I notice that moving from one to another that a lot of tabs (most recent) are not synced. Everything is fine if I manually sync but I don't want to have to do that every time I open a new web address. It says it will sync automatically when I close the browser and I have it set to restore previous sessions so I know the browser is keeping the tab information but sync does not work that way. Am I expecting too much or is this not the way its supposed to work? It honestly feels like the auto sync works to some extent but its only updating/syncing maybe once an hour while I browse. This issue is not not device specific. They all seem to have very slow or bugged sync use where the most recent tabs are not synced unless they have been open for a very long time.

What are the events that trigger a sync if any and/or can I manually set the frequency at which it auto syncs? I really sucks when I leave a page open at the office for 10 minutes shut down and go home and its not synced. None of these devices have any internet connection issues and everything else seems to work just fine. I am also running the latest as of Friday version of Firefox on all my devices. This has been an issue for me for years. I was finally annoyed enough to look for a solution and found none. So here we are. Any help is appreciated!
