Closed around 300+ tabs by mistake without closing FF

Hello Mozilla Community,

While selecting all my tabs to move some of them to another window, I misclicked and it opens them all twice.

Immediately after I made the mistake to accept closing what I thought was the doublons, but instead it closed them all except for the few doublons remaining.

There were many important tabs opened months ago, that's why I'm asking help.

I don't know what happened but I found this thread (https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1310742) and followed some of the steps.

I managed to recover the recovery_backlzk4 in excellent state from around twenty minutes before the problem, and tried to read the URLs from it with this person's tool: https://www.jeffersonscher.com/ffu/scrounger.html

It did not work, so I don't know what to do.

Can someone explain me if there is still something to do about it or not?

Thank you very much

The tabs, since your last update, now play the audio (on Fox News in particular,) doubled up with a lag. Clicking on the feature will stop one of the audios, but will also stop the video leaving only audio and a frozen video.

Suggestions?

With today's Firefox update, the edges of the tabs, that allow me to visually distinguish between the multiple tabs that I always have open, disappeared. Now, it is only the font/text that is visible when looking at my browser's multiple tabs. The edges have disappeared, only showing up as a faint shadow when I hover the pointer over a tab. And depending on the name listed on the tab, this makes it very difficult to distinguish one tab from another. This change to the way that Firefox looks is making it difficult for me to maneuver between tabs, and get my work done.

I tried changing colours, as well as the different themes, but in all cases, the edges remain invisible. Attached is a screen image of the different colour/themes, showing that in every case, the edges of the tabs remain invisible.

Is there a way to bring the edges back into view? Thank you in advance for your assistance.

Hello My desktop Firefox (iMac) did an automatic update and now I have the floaty tab redesign and I intensely dislike it. Is there a way to make the tabs look like how they did before? I am so unhappy. It's ugly and I can't tell the tabs apart very well (they have no dividing graphics). I am this close ---><--- to Time Machining myself back to the previous Firefox version. Help? Thanks Elizabeth

When I open a new tab and then search, and then try to search with google then search option does not provide me results. or if I try to even open google through the tab, Firefox does not provide me any results. This started happening recently. I have tried clearing the cache and cookies and the issue resolves for a bit and then starts again. I even have removed and tried a fresh install of firefox and I am still seeing the same results. I need help as this is getting annoying.

The new version, 89.0.1, has removed the contrast and separation of the tabs, making it hard to read now. Why?

I don't mean to be rude, but if you could get the decision-makers who authorize drastic changes to the appearance of the browser when a new release comes out to just stop "fixing" things that aren't broken, that would certainly satisfy me. I'm not picky about color schemes and "themes", but now the browser is difficult to read, and it wasn't before. I need to know how to restore the appearance of my browser to be the same as in the previous version, or I'll finally have to quit Firefox after all these years and switch to a different one. I don't want to have to do that, but I don't think I can manage to deal with this new hard-to-read low-contrast version. I'm sure someone thought this design looked "cool", and was therefore an improvement. I don't want to stifle anyone's creativity, but the browser I use has to be easier to read. Maybe the next release will offer a choice between the "look and feel" of the previous version versus this one. Thanks for considering my problem (and it is a problem for me), and I'll keep my fingers crossed.

Hi, In Mac OS, in Firefox's latest update 89.0, when I enter to full screen mode, address and tab bar (Tool bar) get lost, and they only visible when you hover the mouse on the upper side of the application. How can I disable the feature and be able to see the toolbar in full screen mode?

Similar question's answer answer, says that when we right click on Minimize button we can unselect Hide Toolbars. But there is no such option for me, I can only find setting for bookmarks bar.

With several tabs available, I used to be able to put my cursor on a tab (of course it opens) but holding the cursor on the tab, I could drag it right or left to rearrange the order of tabs. Now that doesn't work any more. I have to assume it is because of a recent upgrade in Firefox version. I have version 89.0.1 and I also miss the box around each tab, which more distinctly visually identifies the tab. Now the only one with a box around it is the one selected. The loss of surrounding box and the inability of dragging the tabs is probably connected. Suffice to say I do not like this "improvement" and would like to go back to the previous tab system....

I have my Firefox settings to open search results links in a new tab. I can get this to happen with Google, but I *rarely* use it. I prefer Bing. My settings are for links to open in a new tab, and they won't do that with Bing.

I have read what others have suggested about fixing this problem. I made changes in about:config with no result. I opened in Firefox safe mode and didn't find anything on my own. Will check out any tips though.

This has only recently become an issue. I know that Ads have always opened in the same tab and I do not care to right-click or use ctrl.

Another issue I suddenly had with the latest new design update was that when I used the Bing search box, it started switching to an address bar search. I was able to fix that.

Anyone know a sure cure?

Hello dear supports. As the title says; For example I have 4 tabs open and when I switch to one of them, Firefox automatically reloads it and that causes problem specially when I'm offline. I'd like to reload the tabs myself, every time I want.

Is there any way to stop Firefox from auto reloading tabs?

The "browser.tabs.unloadOnLowMemory" parameter was already set on false when I checked. These solutions didn't work for me. https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1259963 https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1260025 https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1260121
