Hello all,

I'm having an issue with my FF browser and opening tabs. When I hold ctrl and left click on a video, it opens the video in a new tab (which I want) but it opens the tab twice. This doesn't happen on every site I visit. I opened FF in troubleshoot (safe) mode and this issue still occurred. I thought that maybe its the mouse on my laptop but I opened Chrome and didn't have this issue at all. Is there anyway to fix this? It isn't a huge problem, just a major inconvenience that I'd rather not have to deal with. Thanks in advance.

My old same tabs open over and over again each day even though i have closed them!! I lost all my most current tabs and haven't been able to get current tabs even though I ask to restore current tabs I got very old ones. they are lost. I just want it to stop loading the same old tabs that I close each day I have to close 16 tabs. leaving only one tab open then close Firefox. then restart my pc and the same very old tabs come up each time. I have done this at least 10 times. I eventually tried to restore history of one tab opened to try to get something different -- when I closed my browser I only had one tab open. I have been having this problem since I tried to pin some tabs about a week ago and I have been having this problem since. Please help! I need a lot of support.

We have used FF on various devises for many years. It WAS a stable and reliable browser. Recently it has become an almost constant source of irritation and frustration. Apart from other things, like certificate and site loading issues, often, when we reduce the browser and reopen it all except the home tab disappear. And restore session is always greyed. Yes, we have searched for solutions and tried myriad fixes - none work. We have been forced to defile our macs with chrome. Apple are still lost in the jungle on safari.

Sorry, but you have stuffed up a once great browser. .

Is it possible to password protect one specific tab?

I have a tab with my gmail open, and I use google to login to other sites, so it is sensitive. Some months ago my computer was remotely hacked and someone could get into my mail through firefox when I was not using it. I would prefer not having to log out every other minute and keep receiving email notifications, but make it impossible for someone to open that tab and poke around.

Note: I use Malwarebytes Premium since then, so maybe this is no longer necessary.

I just installed FF 99.0.1 on a new Windows 10 H1N2 install on my portable. If I have Restore last Session enabled, FF will correctly restore all tabs, except pinned ones. They no longer show up as pinned or regular tabs.

On other machines I have, same windows version, same FF version, pinned tabs survive restart as pinned tabs on the left side of all tabs.

I've looked high and low in options for anything that modifies pinned tabs behavior, and read various help content and such, but no clue. The only thing I think of is that on my portable this is a new system install, and on the other machines there have been many updates of OS and FF over the years.

Does this ring any bell with anyone?

Thanks.

I need handoff enabled on macOS and iOS in order to copy and paste items from my Mac to iPad using Universal Control (I checked by seeing the cross device clipboard not working when either is turned off). I want handoff disabled in Firefox only, shouldn't there be a way to disable it within Firefox? Seeing Firefox tabs randomly automatically show up in Safari on my iPad is annoying and spam.

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.

Starting about 13:00 Thursday 06/02 multiple (100+) search tabs for items on E-Bay listed 24 hours prior randomly result in an error page with a child with an orange hoodie saying: "We looked everywhere. Looks like this page is missing. If you still need help, visit our help pages."

Entering the error title on a successful title search does result in a successful search the tab for which can then replace the tab which resulted in the error page.

There can be zero results, or many results, I do not see a pattern with this as to if there were results or not.

This would be happening about 5% of the time, however considering how time consuming recreating hundreds of searches would.....

E-Bays says transfer Firefox tabs to Gmail and see if problem persists.

They said no one else has reported this.

Any ideas.

No recent changes to computer, or Firefox. Windows 10.

I'm in Windows 11. FF 101.0.1 64 bit.

In Edge Chrome when I drag a tab from my 1st monitor to my 2nd one, it opens a new window from that TAB on the desired monitor, in Firefox it merely makes another tab on the original monitor and maximizes it over the top of the original window.


Maybe there is a setting? Or an ADD-ON That fixes this? OR is this a FIREFOX limitation??

EDIT: The ISSUE is I want to have VERTICAL TABS in FIREFOX so I have to resort to using TAB CENTER REBORN and this does not support moving tabs to another monitor.

I want to select multiple Tabs from a bookmark folder to open in the background.

On Chrome this used to be quite easy: Just open the Dropdown, click whichever tabs you wanted to open with the Mousewheel and done.

On Firefox you need to enable new tabs to open in Background first. I managed to find the setting for that with google after a while. You need to go to advanced settings by typing about:config into your url bar.

Then you search for browser.tabs.loadBookmarksInBackground and click "enable".

But this didn't fix the other issue I had, that the dropdown menu always closes as soon as I click anything.

Is there a way so it stays open until I'm done selecting the pages I want?
