I use firefox because is the best in every aspect, but opening a new tab in it and typing, it takes me to address bar instead of search bar and that is annoying. Firefox search bar is useless in that way. Thanks for listening.

Whenever I search something and follow a link, or if I'm on a page and click a link to another site or page, the history in the tab gets overwritten.

I've only noticed it this month and if I'm looking for something quickly its extremely frustrating having to re search with the same parameters over and over or remember to open every search in its own tab.

I've had a hard time searching this issue, I don't know if my terminology is right or if it's just a very niche issue I'm having.

Any help would be EXTREMELY appreciated.

Is there a way to always show the tab close button on the tabs? Or perhaps to show the button on hover of the tab? Chrome does this and I find that very helpful, in cases where I want to close a tab and do not want to re-open that page.

Some context: When you have many tabs open (I know, who does that?) and you want to close some of them, but do not want to select those tabs, currently you can right-click and scroll through the menu to the `Close Tab` option. This is slow and a bit clunky. The `Close Tab` menu option is buried in the bottom-middle of the list.

This issue is somewhat complicated by the fact that I use the excellent Auto-Tab Discard extension to discard/sleep tabs. (https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/auto-tab-discard/) So when a tab is discarded, and you click on it, the tab reloads. Which is silly when you just want to close it.

Anyone aware of a way to always show the close-tab button, or show on hover?

Thanks!

I'm on Firefox 79, Windows 10. I get jarred by the new tab navigation behaviour, where Ctrl-Tab brings you to the most recent tab rather than the next tab shown along the top. However, I can see its merits. I would like to be able to use both, effortlessly, without having to delve into the preferences to switch behaviour. Is there a way to do this?

Hard to hit the "right spot" on the X icon when closing a tab - only a very small area gets a response

When I try to close a tab, if I place my cursor over the X icon and click, nothing happens. If I carefully hover the tip of my cursor over the very bottom of the (invisible) box around the X, the box will turn darker grey and I can finally click and close the tab. I'd estimate the grey box around the X is 1cmx1cm, but only the bottom 1-2mm elicit a response.

I have restarted Firefox and my computer. My browser version is up to date. I am not using any extensions. I am on a 2009 Mac running Yosemite.

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.

Hi, I use a PC under W7.

with FF88, the zone of the activated/unused tabs was above the screen, below the listed tabs bar (like in the snapshot).

With FF89, this zone is now empty (background in blue in the snapshot) and only the active tab appears below the window (on the right down in the snapshot for the current tab).

It makes FF simply unusable ! Need your help to come back to a normal situation : all tabs in the blue bar where they were.

thanks a lot for your help. Regards, Philippe

Clicking a Facebook or Instagram link in a Google search opens a new tab and kills the Google tab. Why? I have to restore the closed tab (and its history) from History > Recently Closed Tabs. This has not yet happened with any non-Facebook-affiliated tabs.

I know that Facebook is evil, but damn.

Firefox 92.0, 64-bit (This has happened in the last five or so versions.) Windows 10 Home, V. 20H2, OS Build 19042.1237, Windows Feature Experience Pack 120.2212.3530.0

Thank you.

I've noticed this happening in the past week. Example #1 I used Google search to look for Japanese dogs & clicked on Wikipedia In addition a tab on debt popped up on its own. Here's a link to it: https://go.debthelpguide.com/api/offer

Example #2 I logged into citi.com to check my credit card activity In addition a tab which was of a sexual nature popped up on its own. I was so shocked I didn't think of saving a link for it.

It doesn't happen on all tabs I am using. Thank you in advance for your help.

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.
