When I mistakenly delete a tab I would like to me able to restore it. If it does not already exist, it could be added to the Firefox menu. When I have many tabs open, sometimes I would like to open yet another tab and I mistakenly delete the last tab rather than clicking on +. This might be because the + is not bright white and seems a bit gray, or because I have so many tabs open the delete sign X does not appear.

I recently reinstalled firefox on Windows 10 and see that the ">>" button with More Tools is disabled when I edit the toolbars. Now I have to move additional plugins to a "Hiding menu" which basically is the Bookmarks menu. I want to see my bookmarks always and do do not want to see additional plugins always as they distract me. I've always hid them in ">>" button and this was perfect for me.

How to reenable the hiding functionality?

It is my understanding that in Private browsing mode, tabs aren't isolated from each other and all tabs share the same (in memory) cookie jar and thus, for instance, existing third-party cookies are possibly sent in the same private session.

Why multi-account-containers addon is not avaliable in PB when it can be beneficial?

Hello, It seems that since Firefox updated to 86.0.1 64bit I can not longer play videos on FOX News. I do have uBlock Origin and Privacy Badger and I have used them for years. By trial and error of disabling each of my addons one by one to see which one could be the culprit I found that by turning off uBlock I am able to play Fox News videos. I kept Privacy Badger turned on and it blocks the advertisements and trackers and I can view Fox News videos with that. I would also like to add that I have not changed any settings in my Options. bold text Now I have noticed the same problem with Edge Chromium in viewing Fox News videos and I had to turn off uBlock and turn on Privacy Badger for that browser in order to see them on Edge. I have always used Firefox for years as my default browser. Does anyone else have this problem or do you have any info on whether Fox News has done something with there site to where you can no longer use Adblockers like UBlock. I have no problems with viewing videos on any other website i.e. YouTube. Thank you for your time in reading this and for any info.

Regards

After Firefox 86.0.1 updated ublock stopped working on private browsing. It works on opening up as a normal browser. I uninstalled 86.0.1 and rolled back to 86.0 and now private browsing is not blocking ads. Again it is working on normal browser.

I have set firefox to default to opening in private browsing mode and the breaking of ad blockers is not very helpful.

I would like to know how to fix the issue.

Best Regards,

Ramkumar

Before the most recent FF update all links I clicked on in a search results page would automatically open in a new tab for each seperate site. Now the links always open in the same tab, which means I can't navigate to research effectively. I've been through all the Options with no solution found. Am using Windows 10. I know I can make a seperate click to open a new window or tab each time, but it is much more user-friendly for new tabs to open automatically. Thanks.

As I am on the computer all day, I find it helpful to get around slow page loads and stuck videos by clearing my Browser Cache frequently. As many as 20 times daily.

I have to do these exact steps: 1) Click on Tools>Options>Privacy & Security. 2) Scroll down, wait while cache data is gathered before the Clear Data option becomes active 3) Click on Clear Data 4) Uncheck the Clear Cookies box 5) Click Clear.

I do understand that by using the right settings, I could have Firefox clear the cache automatically, but that would just mean frequently closing Firefox and opening it right back up, losing all my open tabs in the process, so that option really doesn't work for me.

It would be really nice if Firefox could just put a button to Clear Cache (and only the cache, not the cookies) right on the Menu Bar. It would be one quick click and done!

Am I missing something - is there a way to customize my menu bar to do this, or is this something Mozilla is looking into?

When I open Google Translate, large grey text labels appear next to the icons, obscuring what's beneath. For example beside the double arrow icon it says "swap_horiz," which covers up some of the menu items. I think this is a Firefox, and not a Google, problem because this happens only on my desktop (Win 10) and not on my laptop (also Win 10). It also doesn't happen on any other site. I'm sure some switch somewhere got thrown accidentally. Has anyone had this problem?

How do I get the new Firefox to look at the old hard drive to find the data?

I have noticed in Firefox 86.0.1 64 bit that in the past few days the search results screen has been shifting to the right and not centered. I have noticed this as well on my wife's laptop. I have refreshed Firefox on my HP desktop and her HP laptop and it still happens intermittently. When it does this the only way to correct this is to restart Firefox. We both have Windows 10 Home Version 20H2 Installed on ‎2/‎24/‎2021 OS build 19042.868. I was wondering if this is a known bug and if anyone else is seeing this.

Thank you
