Hello, I would like my tabs to be different colors. I used to use an add on called Colorful Tabs, but then when Firefox updated years ago, it wouldn't work anymore. How can I do that? I see that add on is back but it says Not monitored for Security. What to do? thanks!

Magically? As in Evil, Stupid Magic. Turn off computer. Turn back on 2 hours later: New Tabs page has Completely Reset. All Saved Tabs are gone? Really. Who thought this was a good idea? Let's fuck with the users and screw their saved bookmarks. Nice. Twice, over the past 2 months. And, my other extensions should In No Fucking Way be the Issue. C'mon developers, quit trying to make Firefox 'prettier'..! Just make it work consistently.

Hey guys, in my website history I found a link for a website that I didnt visit and also it happened while I was away. No one has access to my laptop.

Is it possible thats a mistake? Or that while my laptop was in sleep mode he somehow went there? But I didnt have internet connection then.

It was microsoft support website https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/office/examples-of-office-product-keys-7d48285b-20e8-4b9b-91ad-216e34163bad?wt.mc_id=enterpk2016&ui=en-us&rs=en-us&ad=us

Any ideas what it could have been?

I have a new Windows 10.0 Pro computer and installed lates version of fire fox. Now I try to implement automatic "open link in new tab" as I had in my previous PC. My internet search was unsatisfactory. The only solution I founf was to right click the link and use the option "open link in new tab". This works but is cumbersome compared to the old version. I also found some help to change certain values in "about:config" from false to true. But they did not work. Does the new version of firefox block the desired adjustment?

The new tab + sign, until now located immediately after the last open tab, has moved to the far right of the tab bar. Although it is still usable, I prefer the old location. Was this an (un/)intentional change by Firefox or is it a glitch? Is there a way to restore it to its original position? I read the similar question by GrokSurf (9/1/17): https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1173831 and the solutions presented didn't seem to apply to my situation: -The only things on my tab bar are my tabs and, to the far right, the print and new tab buttons. -My theme is the default theme. -I opened Firefox in safe mode and the new tab button was still on the far right.

Any help will be appreciated!

Hi. Is there an option to prevent closing Firefox losing all my pinned tabs if I close Firefox windows in the wrong order?

I'd like to use pinned tabs is to keep tabs and their scroll positions across sessions, but I lose mine continuously simply because I accidentally close my FF windows in wrong order (original window not last - very easy to do!).

Thanks, Tim

FF frequently fails to restore tabs losing all my previous work before I've finished. It's very annoying and frustrating. In search help the answer is not simple to understand. Please tell me, what is sessionstore and where can it be found? Why is there not a button to fix this problem? If sessionstore gets corrupted frequently as mine seems to (according to the answer) why not have a sessionstore back-up and a routine to correct the problem or at least easily recover from the corruption?
