The + for adding a new tab is located at the upper right hand corner of my Firefox screen. Is there a way to have it show up next to the last tab that was opened? My Firefox at home has the + next to the last new tab. My Firefox at work has it on the upper right hand corner. The attached file shows what I am talking about with the + circled in red and the yellow arrow showing where I would like it to be if this is possible. Thanks.

When Firefox is launched on my Mac desktop, it takes a long time to display a browser window, and the window is filled with innumerable tabs whose origins I can't understand. I have tried many of the remedies suggested for dealing with too many tabs, and none seem to work. I trashed the Firefox application and the folder /User/Library/Application_Support/Firefox, restarted the Mac, and Firefox works well for a while, but when I do a Google Search the browser window is suddenly populated with huge numbers of tabs that seem similar to what I have seen in past occasions, and Firefox stalls. Are there some other files containing a record of all these tabs that I can delete, to stop this from happening?

I can't "Refresh Firefox", because Firefox is unusable at the point when the problem occurs.

Desktop FireFox browser v. 84.0.2 (64-bit)

I made the mistake of asking to always open a site in a container and for it to remember my choice. Now I can't get it to open in no container. The context menu choice to "Reopen in Container" => "No Container" seems to ignored.

The issue: I have to different logins for a site (dev.azure.com). I open one in the work container and the other in no container. I didn't realize the open in container would operate only on the domain, which makes sense in hindsight. However, now the site is broken for one of the sites, and I can't find where to reset this choice. How do I do that?

I want FF to open multiple sites when I first load the program. But, I don't want them all to be included as a home page selection. I can do this in Chrome and Edge, but I don't see how in FF. Currently, every time I hit the home icon in FF, all tabs are reloaded to the same tabs that are already open.

Multi unwanted tabs are opening every time I open Firefox. When closing Firefox I tell it to close all tabs and when I reopen Firefox they all come back. I have even tried closing them all individually, one at a time, and they still return after closing. How do I modify it so that I get to only the ones that were open at close?

I recently had to uninstall and re-install Firefox to deal with a software conflict issue. I then reset all of my preferences, including using www.google.com as my homepage. Before the re-install, private browsing tabs opened as a different, darker color theme than regular tabs, and they opened on the Firefox home page. Now, they open on the same Google home page as the regular tabs and are the same color as regular tabs, which can be confusing. How do I get back to a darker-theme private browsing tab? Thank you.

I recently "refreshed" Firefox to solve a printer problem and that worked. But, now I'm having a problem with tabs. Prior to the "refresh" I kept 8-9 tabs always open and they ran across the top of the page with a "new tab" at the right end of the string. I could open a new tab, keep it open, and close it. Now, the new tab is at the upper left and when I search for a new site and open a tab that tab stays at the upper left. When I close that new tab, Firefox closes and I have to start all over again. My standard pages load but I must sign in to every page.

What do I need to do to get the "new tab" to the right of my standard string of tabs and be able to close that new tab without Firefox closing down and forcing me start all over.

I'm running Win 10 on an HP laptop.

Thanks

Locking this thread.
Please continue here: [/questions/1331097]
I just upgraded to Firefox 87.0 (64-bit) for Windows 7. After the upgrade the wheel click to open a link in a new tab isn't working. In fact, doing a wheel click does absolutely nothing now. I have relied HEAVILY on using wheel clicks to open links in new tabs. In fact, depending on what I am doing I am more likely to open a link in a new tab than to just follow it, as it is easier to close a tab then hit a back button 4, 10, or 20 times to get back to where I started.

I have verified the following options in about:config; browser.tabs.opentabfor.middleclick=true middlemouse.contentLoadURL=false middlemouse.paste=false middlemouse.scrollbarPosition=false

When searching to see if others were having this problem I noticed a user from 3 years ago had this problem in the Linux version, and that they had listed an option for middlemouse.openNewWindow=true. This option is now missing from about:config. I have no idea if it was in the previous version of Firefox or not, or if it being missing is the source of my problem or not. I have restarted Firefox itself a couple of times, as well as rebooting my computer, the problem is still there.

At this point I am already highly tempted to attempt to return to the previous version of Firefox just to get this one feature back, simply because of how regularly I rely upon it. The only reasons why I'm not at present is to ask for help fixing this problem and that I probably won't have the time around work to fight with it for several days.
