I refreshed FF today and the above unwanted behavior happens.

Each time I click home (FF immediately goes there) yet another blank tab opens with it. Compared the settings with my lap top set up the same way. There, no extra tabs open. How do I turn off getting new blank tabs. Thank you!

How do I dismiss the warning message about closing multiple tabs without closing all other tabs?

Using Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit SP1 Firefox 73.0.1 64-bit When I close several tabs, a message box appears telling me that tabs will be closed in 20 seconds, or to click to avoid that. If I dismiss the box by clicking on the window-frame "X", Firefox closes too many tabs. (The box disappears after a few seconds.) I wish not to see that box. I wish Firefox to do nothing I do not trigger myself. How do I eliminate that function entirely?

Silly...really silly but irritating

After the latest update  when I select the bookmark menu dropdown and hover over a folder...they all open / expand  on the right instead of the left.

Why? And how can I change this back so that the folders open on the left of the folder menu?

When I am on a Firefox webpage and it site says something like "Click Here" to open a how to file or a pfd or a statement to print...those types of things. Once I click on the button Firefox starts to open new tabs, one after another. It never stops. I end up shutting down Firefox before it finishes. I counted 55 new tabs at one point. But, the new material never shows up either! Any suggestions?

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.

I don't know if I am just getting paranoid, but now when I open a new tab, I am seeing an "advert" at the bottom of the screen.

I say advert, but for want of a better term....

See attached. Some details have been hidden for my privacy.

Is that red rectangle at the bottom "legit" or does my machine have gremlins in it?

So I've made a few changes in userChrome.css to resize the tab sizes with some code that I've collected. In summary, I've changed the height and width as well as hid the tab title.

The problem that I've run into is that the tabs will kinda glitch out and the extra space won't collapse when the tab is closed (as shown in one of the screenshots). It seems to have to do with setting the width of the tab, since when I comment out the css styles to make them normal size again, tabs close properly.

I'd appreciate any thoughts y'all have. Thanks

I've installed firefox on my new mac to match my desktop pc a little better. It works smoothly on desktop, but on this mac it seems to be nothing but trouble. Every time I reset my macbook I have to login to firefox manually, and then I'm faced with all my top sites missing. It's been mitigated slightly by adding bookmarks to my highlights page, but I'd still like to not login every time I reset. Any help would be greatly appreciated!
