Firefox has started hiding all tabs in a window except the active tab. This has happened in two different windows. I have no idea how to hide tabs and don't want to. How can I unhide the tabs. When I try to do it one by one, the first tab rehides when the 2nd one appears. Can I unhide multiple tabs at once? Do I have to unhide them one by one, and if so how? How do I stop Firefox from hiding tabs?

Whenever I close my app, it doesn't restore my tabs. Since I checked "Confirm before closing multiple tabs", any attempt to close Firefox will warn me. It should not be doing this. I have been using Firefox for almost a decade now, and it started acting differently all of a sudden (most likely after an update).

Suddenly today my browser had switched any current tab to the bottom of my window, but it also only lets me see one at a time..which means I can't see multiple tabs open unless I close the current one. My tab bar is gone entirely and was up-top as it's always been, just under the URL box.

I didn't hit any key combos that I know of that would cause this, and I can't seem to find anyone else with the same problem when I search for a solution. Does anyone know what I can do to fix this?? It's very odd and annoying, I've never had it happen before now..

I took a screen-shot of the problem, showing what happens when I open a site or any tab:

Thank you very much for taking a look and any help with this strange issue,

-Chris

When I go into Firefox & I bring up my bank for example if I go to another tab to bring up something else most times it won't do it. So then I have to shut it down & open it up again which is intensly annoying. This never used to happen say a year ago.

My tabs do not open correctly. They are squeezing in between the < and > and I have to try to find it? There is a big bracket showing between those two < > arrows.

I have no idea what happened but before the tabs started acting crazy, when I opened FireFox it was very, very small print that I had to resize with the 'Control, mouse up' move.

I got into Firefox and Poof! All of the Tabs at the top of the screen were gone. The "Recently Closed Tabs" offering in History is not highlighted. I've used that before to get them back. Now, how do I get them back? I was saving them for reading later. I'd like ME to be in charge of Tabs. Seems like I'm not. All tips welcome! Thank you. CD Happel

Hi, yet again, I've opened Firefox to find just one tab, a Mozilla ad in this case; the 40 or so tabs I had open are gone. I had prepped for a day's work ahead and had opened the tabs I needed for research and work, ready to start in the morning. I don't know what's causing it; I do know that this most often happens when I've shut down Firefox, then go to Thunderbird for a last check of emails, and click on a link in an email which opens Firefox.

Is this a bug? Does Firefox just not like being opened via an email link? Is it a problem if a Firefox private window has been left open inadvertently, even though Firefox was properly shut? Or is it just Firefox updates that cause this problem? It's been happening for a while now, and is really frustrating and costly, workwise. Yes, I do have restore previous session ticked. I've shared the data report below - at the time of this post, not at the time of opening Firefox. Any help would be really appreciated, especially if it's simply explained :) 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.

Ctrl + T no longer opens a new tab, but instead brings me to the third tab I have open. If I have less than 3 tabs open, it either does nothing (for one tab) or brings me to the second/third (for two or three tabs). Other keyboard shortcuts are not glitched like this. Why is this happening and how I can fix it?

I have already reinstalled Firefox and restarted my computer, but neither of those have done anything.

I find this does not happen when I opened Mozilla and searched for an answer, but if I am in almost any other site, and click a link, it oens in a new window and is so narrow, it is unusable until I stretch i. This is a pain, and never happened ubtil about 1-2 months ago after an update.

Please let m know if anyone has a solution to this irritating challenge.
