Permanently pin the tab of an addon

I use the Feedbro-Addon, which creates an own tab. Its url is: moz-extension://285d678c-ecb3-4003-923d-835fc9d8e0bc/reader.html

If I use it as a normal tab (instead of a pinned tab) ... it survives a Firefox restart. But if I use it as a pinned tab (which I want) ... it disappears after a Firefox restart.

I suppose it has to do with it being an addon-page instead of a "normal" page.

Is there a way to make it stay permanently pinned?

Hello i've been having some problems on the latest software of yours i'm most of the time watching livestreams but from update v.100 of your software it became weird tab suspends after some in activity which is a problem for me

i found a solution through ABOUT:CONFIG and disabled these 3 for videos 1 - media.suspend-bkgnd-video.enabled 2 - media.resume-bkgnd-video-on-tabhover 3 - browser.tabs.unloadOnLowMemory

for videos and live streams it was good it didn't suspend but my problem now since update v.102 is that video plays but the CHAT stops and doesn't reload until i reopen firefox to the front of my programs

although it is runnning in the background and NOT MINIMIZED

even when the live stream has some lags and re-buffer it doesn't rebuffer or refresh the page to reconnect to the live stream until i force my firefox in front of my programs or games and again it was not minimized

if there is an option in the about:config to change this please tell me i'm already losing my mind as i missed one of my friends live stream because of that suspension

thank in advance

Restore lost tabs after crash when restore previous tabs methods aren't working

Hello! My computer crashed recently ending my Firefox browsing session along with the 3 windows and likely close to 50 combined tabs I had open. Upon re-opening Firefox I'm pretty sure I clicked "Restore previous session" on the page that pops up with that prompt as I normally do expecting all previous windows and tabs to reappear, but for some reason it didn't load as usual and instead reloaded a new window saying that I'm on the latest version of Firefox with 1 additional blank homepage tab instead of my previous 3 windows with multiple tabs. In that new window the "Restore previous session" option from the menu bar was greyed out and nothing appeared in the "Recently closed windows" or "Recently closed tabs" areas. I ended the new window using the End Task feature in Task Manager and have not opened Firefox back up in hope of being able to recover the now 2 (or I guess 3 if the restore re-load is considered a new session) sessions ago windows/tabs.

I have tried 2 methods to get my previous tabs back: 1) sessionstore-backups subfolder in the Profiles folder - the recovery.jsonlz4/baklz4 are both from the newer blank tab session, the previous.jsonlz4 is from 2 months ago, and the upgrade.jsonlz4 files are also older from 2 months ago so none of those files have the data I'm looking for 2) ShadowExplorer to find an older version of the sessionstore-backups, but this too did not have helpful files from either the recovery/previous/upgrades file types after extracting and seeing only 3 tabs from the older session they logged

Before reopening Firefox again, is there any other method or attempt I should try to restore the now 2 sessions back 3 windows and their tabs? Any relevant help or advice would be greatly appreciated!

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.

Firefox updated and now my tabs are above the address bar, I hate it. I have went through all the information I could and created a new chrome folder, downloaded the css and changed user preferences but it sets the tabs to the bottom of the screen not just below the address bar. I think I need a different set of code for the css but cant find a copy. Does anyone know what to do?

This has happened twice now - I've had a main window open with 100+ tabs and a second window open with only one tab. All settings are as described to save history, etc. After closing Firefox and later restarting, only the window with a single tab is restored. I've saved the session backup files in another location and manual copied and renamed them into the main profile folder but in each attempt, only the single tab window was restored, which is obviously not what I want. I know the 100+ tabs are in the file because of the filesize and because I've used https://www.jeffersonscher.com/ffu/scrounger.html to scrounge the URLs from the backup file. But the point is that Firefox is NOT extracting the data from this file and restoring the other window, which makes me suspect there is a bug or problem with session restore when more than one window is open at the time of shutdown.

Thanks for any suggestions. Bob

I'm having an issue every few months, where I usually keep Firefox open with 10 or so tabs as pinned and sometimes I open a new window for something else on another monitor. When closing the PC, I generally close on my main monitor and forget about the new window, so I lost all tabs. Because I use Open previous windows and tabs. How can I recover the window with my tabs without having to always go into sessionstore-backups folder and restore manually with the scrounger from the recovery file?

Thanks, Eduard

I had a number of tabs open today (~40). Because Firefox started to malfunction, I had to restart Firefox. It happened to me before and I knew that I can restore my previous session so I safely closed the tabs.

When I restarted it, I opened a tab and then I tried to open the Application Menu, but accidentally closed the window. Now, when I've re-opened Firefox and attempted to restore the previous session only that last tab appeared.

Is it possible to recover the pre-previous session? I use Ubuntu 18.04. Where is this information located? and how can I retrieve it?

Hi

Running Firefox 71.0 (64 bit)

Well seems Firefox has been messing this up again.

Anyone have the new work around solution to get my tabs back on the bottom again. They were fine this morning then shut down and went out to lunch and when I came back they were back on the top again after months of being where I wanted them below my bookmark bar.

Thoughts on this?

Thanks Dave

For a few days now this thing with the tabs is driving me crazy. When I click on some link a new tab opens, then I click on another link another tab opens. Following some instructions I went to about:config where I was asked to look for neww, then change the default from 3 to 1. That solved the issue with opening multiple tabs, but now when in gmail and I click on a link it remains in the same page and I have to keep getting back to gmail to continue reading my emails.

That was not the behavior before. When I clicked on a link in my email I was taking to a new tab. Which was OK. But then lately every time I click on something it keeps opening new tabs. This is so annoying.

What can I do to go back to the settings I had a week or more ago.

This is FRUSTRATING!!!!

Thanks so much for your help on this matter.

I'm trying to recover a profile that has the most recent history, tabs and pinned tabs that I seem to have either lost or overwritten yesterday. I can try to reconstruct from my actual history but I don't remember everything I had open. I'm also not sure what to do with all the profiles that are associated with my browser. The version with my actual name is not the default and is an initial version I used on an older computer.A ny easy answers would be appreciated. It's frustrating that there is no way to contact them Mozilla directly.

Thanks

In the new version of the Developer Edition the options "close tabs to the right" and "close other tabs" are in a sub-menu named "Close Multiple Tabs" inside the context menu. Is there's a way to change this so that they will appear directly in the main context menu? I use "close tabs to the right" often and I find this very annoying.
