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

In settings, Start-up, I have the box checked for: "open previous windows and tabs" but it doesn't work. In order to do my work I need the 23 tabs I currently have open to show up again after a reboot of the browser or computer. What gives? How long will it take to get this corrected? Please give me help. Thanks, Mark

I've tried everything and read all the instructions but none work.

I was downloading Davinci Resolve on a 2021 Lenovo Laptop running Windows whatever it is, and then the software asked to restart. I said NO because I wanted to make sure all my tabs would be safe. I literally am caretaking two parents and had a BUNCH of tabs open for each of their needs and my own. I had maybe 7 browser windows open and each one had several tabs open.

Usually random updates and restarts have NEVER ever lost my browser windows or tabs. But this time? After I said DO NOT RESTART, it did a glitch anyway without restart and lost ALLLLL my tabs!!!!

I could see all the 7 windows at the taskbar but nothing was loaded on them.

For the first time there was no "restore previous session."

YES I tried to do the whole Jason restore of previous sessions, copied a folder onto my desktop, deleted the ones I was told to, and for some reason the new session updated the old session on the desktop and it all failed and now that is gone. My last hope was the ONE file that was not session updated (not "recovery," not "previous") but an "upgrade" file and when I clicked on it, I get the box that went nowhere when I tried the exe file nor save (attached screenshot). Now it has restarted too many times to restore the "previous" session.

Yes I still have my browser history BUT.........

My only hope is going through literally THOUSANDS of website history I still had but one month literally had 4000 sites (I do a lot of research). So many were important but not thousands. I have been perusing each one, one by one but WHICH could have been an OPEN TAB????

Is there ANY easy way to see which of the thousands was actually an OPEN TAB???

Thanks in advance.

After the latest update (117.0 64-bit) I now do not see the '+' sign in the tab bar. I have 40 tabs open (please, no negativity - it's always worked for me), but if I close all of the tabs it reappears. Re-open the original 42 tabs and it's gone again. Close them and it reappears, etc. Now for the fun bit: starting from scratch with a new window - the '+' is there, but open 20 more tabs and it goes.

So some website didn't work for me and I pressed "forget" button thinking it only removes history from a particular website (no). That's it - EVERYTHING COLLAPSED, session is lost, all tabs gone. Trying to restore from "sessionstore.backup" - no result. Trying from synced - oh sure CRAP IS TURNED OFF like always for NO reason

Thanks a lot, douchebag morons. Hope you all die + anyone suggesting to copy "sessionrestore" gets testicle/boob cancer + anyone suggesting to turn sync on can eat my crap

Wrong tab in focus after pulling different tab away

If I have many tabs open, and pull one away, instead of the previous tab saying in focus, it clicks to a different tab.

If I have 5 tabs open:

  1. Tab1
  2. Tab 2
  3. Tab 3
  4. Tab 4
  5. Tab 5

I'm focused on Tab 3. If I pull Tab 5 away, it snaps me into Tab 4 even though I was previously on a different tab.

I think this isn't a bug but not desired?

Although I had long ago selected "Open Previous Windows and Tabs" in Start-Up, my windows and tabs were not restored when I inadvertently quit Firefox this morning and restarted. I then went to the three horizontal bar Application Menu > History to look for "restore previous session", but that button was missing.

So I have two questions: 1. Why didn't my selected preference, "open Previous Windows and Tabs " at Start-Up work? Is there a fix? 2. What has happened to my "restore previous session button in the History tab of the Application Menu, upper right of toolbar? Has Firefox deleted the "restore previous session" button? Can I reinstall it in some way?

I'll be grateful for advice. Thank you

Locking this thread, please continue here: [/questions/1444052]
I had to delete Firefox on my iPhone because links in emails wouldn't open anymore. Yes, it was set for default.

When I re-installed it, the tabs don't close. I hit the X to make a webpage go away and open a new tab. Hit that X when I'm through. Then close an empty Firefox on my phone.

When I reopen Firefox, I get all these little miniature webpages of the tabs I closed. I don't want them. I closed them because I was through. You guys are wasting my time making me close them again and again ...

Please tell me how to set Firefox on my iPhone so that when I open it I get my homepage with shortcuts I have chosen and nothing else.

Thank you, Roxanne

Your previous reply message to me is below at the bottom of this reply. My answers are inside your reply.

I tried to reply to you yesterday from the help site on FF, however on the last word, I misspelled that word, I attempted to correct it, it should have been easy enough because it was the last letter on the last word, I put my curser at the end of the last word and as I tried remove that letter, BOOM, the whole message disappeared. Hopefully it was sent but I haven’t heard a response yet so I’m assuming the message went into lala-land. Are you saying that your previous session isn't restored [Yes, none of the tabs were restored. Also, under the history tab, the “recently closed tabs” were grayed out so that menu command was useless.] or are you looking for the menu command to restore the previous session? Also, every time I reboot FF or my Computer, none of the previous tabs are restored. If the former, are you exiting before restarting your computer or shutting down? You should do that and you should use the exit command (either in the menu or the keyboard shortcut). I suggest you also allow enough time for the process to finish before restarting the computer or shutting down. Can you help me with this? What is the fix for this issue?

when I open a new tab why does it open this website (https://search.rspark.com/?ytm)????

It's suppose to open a blank page. I set my preferences to open a blank page for a new tab. This never happened before until I updated my Firefox. I am using 110.0 Firefox browser on my Mac. I am running Mac OS 10.15.7

Never had this problem before and I did a clean install.

I know this is most likely a feature, but it's been annoying the hell out of me since I switched from Chrome and I don't know how to disable it. I have looked at multiple (~3) Reddit threads (two of which were archived) which gave me a total of 0 answers, I've looked at other forums, and I've found, get this, nothing. It's so annoying when for whatever reason, my music gets paused and then it's not at the volume I need it to be at, so I turn it up and then almost immediately turn it back down because of the audio fading. All I want is to know how to disable this, PLEASE.

It is ABSURD https://bigthink.com/neuropsych/tab-overload/

Why browsers UI didn't change from 1999, when we know it causes tab overload, brain has to constantly filter everything it sees and how we engage with information is cruical in this age. All we get after 24 years are 4 categories to group tabs. I had even 3000 tabs peaking, average 1000+ reading philosophy. Einstein said: "human stupidity is infinite"...

Bookmarks are atrocious, you cannot even scroll panel with mouse holding bar, cannot cltr+f for existing folders, bookmark manager doesn't find existing folders, it sorts folders with bookmarks together contained under a folder... Doesn't have even tags, with thousands of bookmarks and folders, it would take 10 minutes to find fitting folder... I didn't also find any good 3rd party solutions really...

There are tab manager addons, but if you have again a lot of different tabs, it won't help you, it is useful for short-term workloads, but then you have nothing to store things in more permanent way. Also making notes all the time with reading would cost too energy especially if you need to research many things together... There is prototype of AI that saves all things based how you hover cursor over text etc. It would be great if it supported AI tracking and then highlights important info and makes notes, it is not publicly available yet in some solution...

Note taking programs suffer from same issues, missing core features, chat with AI is still very rudimentary and won't help you bring some small notes or piece of info you read 2 years ago, or something specific on-demand... When note taking program cannot even collapse notebooks on main view and you have seeing like 100ths different entries, or doesn't show available tags and selecte multiple of them quickly together under each notebook...

bottom line: there is no tab management really and all addons are really basic and doesn't support long-term intelligent storage for a lots of tabs so you find what you look for later, bookmarks are unuseable after certain amount (again no good third party solutions i saw...). Note taking programs all suffer from same issues, missing core features, again it is impossible to navigate any else way except using tags, but then if you have many then what, you cannot use tags to find thing nested under 20 other things, some specific bit of info, it will still be vehement to sort, if you cannot use multiple things together like jump to notebook and then see all tags what are there available, which would work better, you cannot remember all tags in each notebook you have... All solutions that exist missing core features and are overly simplistic and vehement... This gave me executive dysfunctions...

And if i give feedback to devs of absolutely logical core things, or what could be better and is missing and what stems from purpose and function and is self-evident: they tell me i am brilliant, it is ABSURD... Don't know what to say... 2023 there is still not way to efficiently make notes, capture knowledge... Even my former 160IQ friend said he had millions of files on disk basically has no idea where anything is... Learns everything from memory as he reads it before he goes to next things... It is really dumb in information age, so much interesting things from what we read is permanently lost, there is no really good way to capture info and link it and bring it easily later... Just diet, or healthy lifestyle can be complex and many different areas that are related and are under 20 other things... IT is impossible to find something later... It is absurdly bad how devs don't realize these things and normal ppl tell you you are crazy if you have over 10 tabs, while it was shown today work can generate easily over 100 tabs and it is important to manage information well... Yet there are no solutions, would have to hire programmer for every small thing i notice somewhere is missing, or is vehement useless basically...
