I have deleted all of firefox on my computer and profiles and cleared all of mozillla from my registy. With a clean install and no extensions, I still get a new tab every time I right click on a link. The context menu I wanted to use and select open link in new tab does appear, but the new tab is already opened. I have to click in an open area to remove the menu. I have switched to the brave browser for now, and it behaves exactly like firefox used to.

Hello, I would like to use the search function in the tab again. How can I adjust this? At the moment it is so that when you enter it it appears right above in the link line (see picture). I would like it to be in the search below, directly in the tab. Before version 88 this was possible. Why was it removed?

hallo, ich möchte wieder im Tab die Suchfunktion nutzen. Wie kann ich dies einstellen? Zur Zeit ist es so, daß bei einer Eingabe es gleich oben in der Linkzeile erscheint (siehe Bild) Dabei möchte ich es unten in der Suche, direkt im Tab haben. Vor Version 88 war das möglich. Warum wurde es entfernt?

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

Is it just me or is it impossible to click on links and stay on the same tab? Or am I now doomed to have 20 tabs open while searching for stuff on ebay, ect? Did firefox just make the forward and back navigation buttons useless because firefox is going to open a new page or tab every time we click on anything?

Hi,

I'm using Firefox 89.0 (64 bit) on Lubuntu OS via Mozilla Firefox for Ubuntu Canonical - 1.0.

Despite selecting Restore previous session in settings, and quitting firefox using Ctrl-Q, firefox does not restore the previously open tabs. I have to click on history -> Restore previous session for the tabs to load.

This issue started recently. Please fix the bug.

Thanks, Ajit

I've recently updated to 92.0.1 and I've noticed that when I download a PDF attachment or file that firefox opens in a new tab rather than using the default adobe program. I've looked at settings and applications and changed to to "always ask" but I don t get any option to use adobe to open it or any other program. Also it seems to save the file in the downloads folder as a "firefox html document" and not a pdf file

I set "Open links in tabs instead of new windows" and it opens the bookmark link in a new tab in W10. It opens the bookmark link in the current tab in W11. Both are v93.

My preference would be the W10 way.

Not sure why this would be an OS related issue but there we are.

Why must a new tab/window open when I click a link?

Am I missing a setting?

For the last few updates of firefox I haven't been able to restore closed tabs with the regular keyboard shortcut (believe it was ctrl+alt+t and now ctrl+shift+t). The shortcut simply does nothing at all. It is frustrating as sometimes I close a tab by accident and then I have to go through the whole process clicking to find it instead of being able to bring it back up in half the time using the shortcut. I am on firefox 90.0.

Hi guys.

I can't characterize websites because of the favicon overlaid by the speaker symbol (directly in the YouTube tab).

Is there a way to display the speaker symbol and the favicon at the same time? Or not display the speaker symbol at all, because it is important for me to know which website is in the TAB. I don't need to see the speaker, but the favicon of the website. See attached screenshot.

Of course, the speaker icon only appears when audio is active on a particular website (for example, this applies to a YouTube website).

Thanks.

Hello, I need advices. When I open a new tab in firefox I can't navigate anywhere. If I put an address site it won't try to load it (navigate to it) and if I click an address in my bookmark it won't navigate at all either. The first page I open everything is going good, navigate and so on, but with all others new tabs nothing happens.

Do I do something wrong?

Thank you for your help. Best regards and thanks for your job to all of you.

Hi, Opened firefox today on my desktop pc and the open tabs at the top of FF just stroll to the right/end of my tabs as soon as i put the mouse over them to select one.

try use left arrow or scroll wheel to go to the left and just immediately mouse over to click a particular tab and before can immediately scrolls back to the right/end.

also have noticed when at the right of my open tabs mouse over any tab and whereas before would get the pop up showing the title of the page now just flashs the title up for a fraction of a second not even enought time to read it.

plus now have tried to select from the drop down box in this ask your question dialog box but when click on down arrow to select the appropiate section just flases up the options for a fraction of a section giving no time to select one. Have found only way to select is to use the arrow keys on my keyboard
