I lost that session of around 2000 tabs back in May 1, and I backed it all up onto a folder. When I followed all the existing steps (closing Firefox and replacing the current stuff with the backups), it only took me to a blank "about:restore" tab and popped up an about:support tab.

When I tried loading it into the scrounger (https://www.jeffersonscher.com/ffu/scrounger.html), it crashed the tab no matter how many times I try. I decompressed it and it loaded the uncompressed JSON without a problem, but it won't let me click "save embedded session (first found only)"

Hi, I would like to know how to use the keyboard to select, move, group, bookmark, load, and close multiple tabs with the keyboard all without loading the unloaded tabs. I've recently started using Tree Style Tabs add-on and I wish I could use the keyboard when doing these tasks. I've read somewhere about a firefox-native function that should allow this to happen by enabling in userChrome.css profile: .tabbrowser-tab {

  -moz-user-focus: normal !important;

} but it doesn't work... anyone able to work with tabs efficiently using keyboard only?

Thanks.

I have my mailto set up for outlook. ONCE AGAIN, when I am logged into firefox, and I am on a tab I need to share for work, I select SHARE, and the message shows the option for OUTLOOK. I click OUTLOOK button and next message says "CHOOSE WHICH ACCOUNT TO SEND THE EMAIL FROM" (which is ridiculous) but provides NOTHING TO SELECT FROM. Constant searching on the internet and community to solve firefox problems leads to old solutions where instructions do not even apply anymore. I really do not want to have to move back to Google Workspace just so I can send a tab. Yes I can send a link, copy paste create new email, copy over narrative into subject line -- but why did this stop working? Before the update everything was fine. I am frustrated.

I have many tabs open, and when I close one of the tabs in a middle of the panel I get all the tabs next to the closed one slide left at its place, and this position persists until moving the mouse cursor outside the tabs panel. How can I maybe disable that "mouse focus at closing" to make tabs slide from left to right at once? Thanks in advance!

How to permanently delete a pinned tab so it goes away FOREVER and NEVER COMES BACK?

I created a pinned tab for Google Voice while I was troubleshooting this product. I then decided to get rid of Google Voice in my life and port my phone number to a new VoIP service. Bye Bye Google Voice.

I no longer need or want this pinned tab to keep popping up multiple times on my tab bar. It is like the beast that wouldn't die.

I can mute it, I can unpin it, I can close it, I can club it over the head with a baseball bat and shoot it with a machine gun, but there is no way I've found to PERMANENTLY DELETE A PINNED TAB FOREVER.

It just keeps coming back. Please tell me how to make it stop without resetting my entire browser.

Up until a few days ago, I was able to freely transfer open Firefox tabs between three different Windows (10) PC's. Now the tabs will only transfer if I perform a sync.

I have no clue as to why this changed. In an effort to fix this, I've signed out of the account on all machines, and logged-in again. Not sure what else can be done by way of troubleshooting.

Please assist.

Having lost my tabs display plus all of the top of page 'task bar' I was at a loss. I posted in an incorrect thread. Luckily jscher2000 answered my problem when directing me here to a new thread. My display had changed to a pop-up display. He suggested I try F11 and hey prestos! I now have a (slightly modified) standard screen display with all functions restored.

Many thanks Mr jscher2000!

The font that is used when I click on a tab and view the bookmarked list is difficult for me to read. It's large enough but the serif and thin nature of the tab is a problem for me. I have already reset fonts in the preferences and enlarged my mac screen overall but I just need to change the darn font used when I click on a tab. Can it be done?

Exactly what it says on the tin. For the record, I've followed the instructions listed here and set my google search to not open up new searches in new windows ("tabs)" but the problem continues. I think it's a firefox one but I can't find the about:config setting to fix this if it even is that.

Hi there

I experience an issue with Firefox on one of my computers only. Windows 10, just updated to version 92.0 (but to be fair this is an issue that lasts for years now). I cannot receive any Tab from my other computer or smartphone, nor can i share (i don't see the option in the list when i right click on a tab). Of course it is connected to sync with all my other 4 devices. Maybe there shall be some "user preference" on that specific computer that should be reset ?

Thanks in advance for giving hints and leads, hopefully that should not be too serious.
