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?

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?

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.

Operating System: Windows 7. Scenario: In Microsoft Outlook Web App, I click on an email. Email opens up in a new tab (which is how I like it to). But when I try to "x" out of the tab it won't. This never happened in the previous Firefox versions. This only began to happen when I updated Firefox from version 35 to the latest 38.0.5. HELP. How can I remedy this situation. Any help is most appreciated. Thanks.

When I reopen a closed tab, sometimes it would just load the previous page rather than the last opened page. For example, if I was on the Guardian homepage and I clicked on an article, closed the tab, then reopened with Cmd+Shift+T, occasionally it would load the Guardian homepage instead. I can get back to the article by going back a page (Cmd + left arrow), which is kinda weird.

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

Every time i click a link, a new tab opens. This has become very frustrating, as i have tried almost everything! This is also happening in Google chrome. I have tried searching 'about:config' into the address bar, but I'm just not sure what to look for or what to do when i find it. I have also tried changing my Firefox settings, but alas the problem continues to occur.

I don't know why/how its happening, but its really annoying! Help would be much appreciated if at all possible. Thanks :)

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?
