The dot which goes back and forth on a tab while a page is loading stopped working. A page will still load but I have no idea when. I uninstalled firefox and reinstalled it that didn't work.I tried the troubleshoot mode nothing there helped.....I downloaded the latest update.....still no help....I've never seen this before and I've been using firefox since it's beginning. There's only a hourglass shaped icon in the tab now.

Will there be a generic icon for websites without favicons?

I don't know if this is a problem with my installation, but websites without specific favicons (e.g.: https://forum.librivox.org/index.php?sid=fd7dca1ba59c207dd25121695677d565) don't have a placeholder icon in the tab. Is this intended behavior? There's the globe icon for bookmarks without favicons, couldn't that be used if a website doesn't have one? I think that would contribute to some visual consistency :)

I have looked across various support forums for information on this, I only see posts regarding favicons and bookmarks, not the tab itself, so apologies if this has been asked and answered already!

As the title says, ctrl+tab simply doesn't do anything anymore for me. All the other hotkeys (ctrl+t, ctrl+1, etc.) are working normally. I haven't changed any settings or installed any extensions lately. It still doesn't work if I restart into Troubleshoot mode.

I really can't figure out what happened.

Question about 'Show tab previews in the Windows taskbar' in the 118.0.2 version

I have not updated my build to the 118.0.2 version yet, the reason for that is because I've read a couple of reports of people suggesting that the 'Show tab previews in the Windows taskbar' from 'Settings > General > Tabs' is enabled by default, and thus there is no longer an option to turn it off.

I don't like to clutter my taskbar with tab previews, that's why I've always kept 'Show tab previews in the Windows taskbar' turned off.

Is this true? or is the option to keep 'Show tab previews in the Windows taskbar' on or off still available in the 118.0.2 version?

Hello at Mozilla Support,

I'm having this issue where sometimes, when I double-click to download a link or open a downloads item, it opens the same bookmark page instead. This is the page, and not sure if it's alphabetical, since this pages starts with an 'a' "https://authorspublish.com/#optin" Wondering how I can get this to stop changing the page I am on and opening the bookmark.

Thanks, Sonya

After 107.0.1, the tab bar disappears

In fully updated Windows 10 (x64), running either 64-bit or 32-bit Firefox, the tab bar in the current Release channel of Firefox disappears. No changes have been made to the Firefox profile on my computer, including no edits in CSS, etc. (I never bother with such things). Updating to 108 and higher causes the tab bar to disappear. In 108+, a single tab appears "somewhere" at the bottom of the window (its location appears to be random), and the New Tab button ("+") is gone as well. Disabling all extensions has no effect. Reverting back to 107.0.1 (either 32-bit or 64-bit) fixes the problem. This situation has been tested several times with the same result every time. Consequently, I have edited the Firefox registry policy to disable updating so I can run 107.0.1 without constantly getting the Firefox "nag window." Any thoughts on this problem would be greatly appreciated.

Hi, least night I was using Firefox and all was fine. I closed it as usual. This morning all of my tabs were gone! I still have my bookmarks but the tabs are gone. Is there any way to get them back? I can only assume that this is from the recent update?

Hi,

I have an issue that about:config > browser.link.open_newwindow keeps setting itself to '2', so I have to repeatedly go in and reset it to '3'.

Not entirely sure what could've caused this, all I've been able to find is this here support article with another bloke having the samme issue, but what seemed to be only once.

I haven't done much in way of troubleshooting, as I'm not really sure how to go about doing that for a browser.

If I had to guess, it would be either something updating, or an extension yanking my chain, so here's the list of every extension I have installed:

1Password - Password Manager Allkeyshop - Compare Game Prices Bitwarden - Free Password Manager Buster: Captcha Solver for Humans Dark Reader Disable YouTube Cards Duplicate Tab Shortcut Fast Copy Links Honey NordVPN - A VPN Proxy Extension for Firefox Return YouTube Dislike Tab Reloader (page auto refresh) uBlock Origin

When clicking a link to a website, it opens my default browser, which is firefox, but it opens a new window with no add-ons, custom settings, cookies, a blank browser. After the recent update as of 3 November 2023, all my add-ons and settings were completely reset, as well as bookmarks all deleted, so I created a new profile to save all my settings. The new window that gets opened does not have any cookies, so it is not logged into anything. It also cannot combine with my other firefox windows and tabs.

Firefox 110.0 64 bit on Linux Fedora 37. Happens with my default setup and also when running with extensions disabled. Default font. English Language.

If I got to this website https://www.endesaclientes.pt/uPortal2/MyEndesa/index.html#/login, right now, it is in maintenance mode. It's tab label shows up as "Em manutenção..." when it should display "Em manutenção". In case this text field munges my text, see image of the tab, and the letters between "uten" and the final "o" are supposed to be a c with a cedilla and an a with a tilde.

Do I need to change my configuration to add the proper font in tabs?

How do I remove pocket from Firefox?

The published solution does not work. When I type "about:config" in the URL, then "pocket," and change the "extensions.pocket.enabled" to "false," the pocket page still shows up after I close a session or a screen asking me to sign in to pocket. I am always closing unnecessary pocket related tabs.

As I remember, one time it worked but only for two days and then the some form of the pocket page showed up again.

Restarting Firefox does not change anything. Please advise.
