I have verified that the settings are to open links in a new tab but they still open in a new window and the new window has tabs I previously closed. This problem arose after Microsoft did an update to Windows 10 in which my default browser (Firefox) was replaced with Edge. When I reset Firefox as my default the problem appeared. Prior to the update links opened in a new tab as I intended.

Is it possible to have several PiPs running simultaneously in separate 'windows'?

The PiP view is actually really useful just for losing all the window decorations - panels, info/status/bookmark/title/tab bars etc.

It would be useful to be able to pop out two, three or more different videos (e.g. multiple youtube videos) to arrange them around the screen with optimal scaling/space usage to fit them all in.

The title basically says it all already. In the documentation of the new tab page it tells you how to remove them, but not how to add them. There should be a way however. For some reason, the pocket suggestions disappeared from my new tab page, and I haven't found a way to get them back. I know from another machine that under settings there should be a check box that you can tick to enable or disable pocket suggestions on the new tab page, but on the system in question, this option is simply not there. How to fix?

using the CTRL+TAB to show open thumbnails tabs visually is a great feature firefox have over other browsers and what encouraged me to leave chrome. have only 6 inst very effective - this needs to be dynamic (for at least 10-15 tabs) and going over the web is seems a lot of people asked this feature.

Is there a way to change this? if not where can I ask a feature request?

Tried it with and without these running and FF fails to save my tabs, regardless of shutting down the browser or the OS. This does not occur on Win10 or my Linux distros. I've been trawling forums and help pages and the Interweb casually for weeks now, without success, but getting quite frustrated now; so posting this as a last resort. Thanks in advance of any suggestions.

All the thumbnails except for the starting page are blank when restarting the browser. I need to click on each and every tab to make the thumbnails show.

Is there a way to change this? It drives me up the wall, especially when having to restart multiple times -which happens a lot due to several factors. I have vision problems and need the thumbs to show to find my way around quickly.

Thanks.

Every now and then, although I have my browser set to open with all previous tabs in place, it does not, and they are lost. But there seems no way to have them reopen and I lose a lot of info this way. This is even though the settings are such that it says to open all the tabs from last time. Any answers

locking as a dupe of - https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1299540

Had a browser crash while changing watching a sports program online. Using FF v79 on W7. I want to change the tabs to a more rounded look. I had a theme installed that did this, a light weight theme. Since the crash I can no longer find the theme to install. The crash folder did nothing to restore these rounded tabs.

As usual, the latest Windows 10 update has caused a few annoying issues. One is that whenever I share something to Facebook from an external site like a newspaper, after the share popup has disappeared I am left with a completely empty tab. Is there any way of stopping this happening? I'm not an expert and don't feel confident about messing with codes, so a simple fix would be appreciated. I've added the troubleshooting information as offered on this page, but have no idea whether this would be helpful!

Hi all,

I'm having an issue that's only just started happening in the last couple of weeks I'd say where I'm on YouTube and I open a few videos in new tabs to watch and they just start playing on their own which is really annoying. I've got the autoplay function set to block both audio and video. It doesn't happen with every single video but it happens with most.

And sometimes I find that I go into the tab, click the play button and it plays the last second of the video and shows the end card. Not too much trouble but a bit baffling. I was wondering if it was maybe still playing in the background but not loudly announcing itself this time.

Another issue (though I don't know if it is an issue) is that I like to have Twitch going in the background if I'm waiting for a streamer to start streaming so I can hear once they do but the page doesn't actually reload unless I go back to it and I find I've missed the first 20min. I don't get why some pages load and keep keep going in the background while others don't. Any way to fix this?

Cheers!

As a tab addict who likes to pick up where I left off, I have Firefox set to open previous tabs on start up. Today, I opened Firefox to a single new tab. None of the dozen or so tabs I had open yesterday appeared and the theme shown as Enabled (a leaf pattern) is not what's displayed (plain blue coloring).

I looked at about:profiles to check whether this was a different profile and if I could revert to one that contained yesterday's session. No luck, the few listed did not contain my previous tab session and settings. Interestingly, in my D:\Users\username\AppData\Local\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles there was a profile that didn't appear on the about:profiles page but it also did not contain my most recent session.

When I look at the folder of the current active profile, there are no files in its root and the subfolders within the profile contain very few files.

Quite simply, it appears as if the profile I was using was mostly deleted. (see screenshot) Given that I closed the browser and then shut down the computer normally last night, how does this happen?? Is there any way to get my previous tabs back?

I should also note that there's no "Restore previous session" menu option in my browser as shown in https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/restore-previous-session. My Firefox is version 80.

(My apologies if this query is under the wrong topic heading. Mods, please move accordingly.)

Will try to explain. Not talking about the website tabs as favorites in the top row - but about module tabs to show up in the top row in a program. When I open a program (work related) - there are modules in the program such as "Participants," "Financial," "Vendors," and so on. When I click on a module, it opens up in a new browser. Problem is, when it's in a new browser, it doesn't identify participant/case I'm working on. I want the "Participants" module tab to appear in the same page in the top row so I can see which case it is - and be able to switch tabs on the same page (like you would with different websites on Firefox homepage). I tried to paste a snapshot of it here but didn't allow me to. In Chrome - I can click on a module/link, then on the top header right click my mouse to select the option to "Show as Tab" - then the tab will appear on the same page and I can easily identify which participant/case I'm working on. I prefer to use Firefox - however it doesn't offer that option to show as tab. I was using Internet Explorer, IE - but the program is no longer supported by IE. Is there a way in Firefox? Thank you.

Hello,

When I open a new tab the cursor automatically locates to the address bar at the top of the page rather than the search bar in the middle of the page. I think an update may have caused this but I'm not certain.

Is there a way to make the cursor automatically appear in the search bar rather than the address bar?

Many thanks
