Let's say I have 20 windows open, each with 30 tabs on. Instead of these windows consuming resources and sitting open, I want a really, really easy way of "saving" each window as is (as they're organised by topic), closing them, and then by hitting just a couple of buttons voila, I can see all the potential windows, select what I need and have it open, and easy to shut again in reverse.

How can I do this? I can't make head nor tail of Firefox bookmarks - have examined the menu option, have read the articles, still as clear as mud. For example, "save all tabs" doesn't seem to mean save all tabs, it just means save tabs in the window you've maximised. Then after creating its own folder in Bookmark menu, when I added a new tab to it I thought that would update. It doesn't. Then I manually did another "save all tabs" for that menu - and the new tab didn't appear.

I don't even know if Bookmarks is the way to even attempt what I'm trying to do here in my question. Does anyone have any great tips on how to minimise the firefox window clutter, but have it really accessible easily?

Thanks.

When I open a tab and go to a website, Firefox returns me to the previous page, no matter how many times I try to go back to my chosen site.

For example: I open a tab and my default page appears. I type in a website or click on a bookmark, and Firefox will get me there. However, the site I'm on won't stay; it keeps returning to the default page.

I've refreshed Firefox and reinstalled it, but no change. I put Firefox into Troubleshooting mode, but I didn't know what to do after that.

Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you very much!

Ok, so it might just be a coincidence or not. But after an update on my portable version of FF, when I go to youtube.com I get lots of blank bits. (See 1st picture)

Can't click on any of the elements.

I've cleared youtube cookies, signed out, signed back in. Still the same.

New Private window does the same.

I haven't found any other sites/pages behaving badly.

Chrome displays youtube fine (See 2nd pic), so it's not youtube.

Any help would be great. Thanks. j

Hello, i need to enable and disable for privacy reasons, the setting "media.peerconnection.enabled" (aka WebRTC) via GUI to avoid to go everytime into about:config settings, search for the string, and double click it to disable or enable.

If is fleasible i prefer to add a custom icon in the customization tools bar windows, so i can drag it and move into the upper part of firefox freely (for example i would like to have it above url bar in the left corner, above the 3 lines application menù.

Thanks in advance if someone can help me.

When you cancel a program, you cannot start another one because Firefox is not responding and first the"old" Firefox must be stopped. This is onerous. Why not automatically (i.e. with a software delete) stop the "old" Firefox each time a Firefox-supported program is cancelled?

Before this Firefox update I had an add-on or extension or something where you could click on it and it would close all tabs, but save the links in another tab, by date. Unfortunately I don't remember what it was called.

Thought maybe 'pin' something, but that's basically unsearchable as there is something else called pins.

It was great, cause you could simply go to the tab and see all of the saved links, by date. It opened up every time Firefox started and I never had an issue. Saved HUNDREDS of links and now it's just gone! No history of it existing. How do I get it back??? This is terrible. Tons of work stuff saved there.

-Yes, I understand bookmarks and have plenty of those and they are still there. -Not related to Pinterest, just think it was called Pinned or Pin Something.

TIA!

Sirs;

I've searched for this solution and all say "Click on the FireFox Button" which does not exist, so what is the real anser.

I never ever, as in "HELL FREEZING OVDEER" want anything in the windows default "Downloads" Directory, so need this solution ASAP!

My downloads must go to the "RIGHT" folder depending on the "TYPE" of download for I download things for 1.) Windows, 2.) Linux, 3.) Programs, 4.) Install Packages, 5.) Support Items, etc. so having the right files in the right place is essential, especially since all must "SYNV" with my LINUX server.

Cheers!

Dear Sir/Madam Hi I live in Iran and I use the lovely FireFox browser for many years I have got in the trouble with Logins and Passwords on my browser. Last day, when I was working with my laptop while the Firefox browser, the Acrobat Reader DC and a text document were on the background suddenly I had to restart my laptop. after that, when I wanted to use the FireFox, I found out that all of the saved logins got lost and now there is no saved logins on my browser. I logged in my FireFox account again to recover the lost information, but unfortunately that was useless.

I have many important saved logins and passwords on my browser. Is there any solution? I need your help to solve this issue.

there is an screen of the empty list of Logins and Passwords on my browser.

yours sincerely

I've noticed this issue happening randomly, some of my toolbar bookmarks listed on the sidebar just up and disappear from view. As if they were never there. But I know they're still saved because when I click to Manage Bookmarks and check them there, they show up fine. The toolbar just randomly hides them for whatever reason, and I can only fix it by closing Firefox and opening it again.

I'm on the current version. I remember accessing about:support and clicking on Verify Integrity while trying troubleshoot some other issue, but don't know if that could've caused it though.

Dear Mozilla Firefox Support Team,

I am writing to inquire about the keyboard shortcut to display a PDF file in two-page view in Firefox. I have searched through the Firefox keyboard shortcuts documentation, but I have not been able to find this information.

I frequently view PDF files in Firefox, and I would find it very convenient to be able to switch to two-page view with a keyboard shortcut. This would save me time and effort from having to click on the two-page view button in the PDF viewer toolbar.

I would be grateful if you could provide me with the keyboard shortcut for two-page view in Firefox. If there is no such shortcut, I would also be interested to know if there is any way to create a custom keyboard shortcut for this task.

The new 'search tabs' icon is incredibly annoying and distracting. So far, I've found no way to get rid of it or disable it. I already tried using the 'customize toolbar' action, but the icon would grey out and return to its position, so that was a bust. I've attached a picture of it below.

It is on the right upper corner of my Firefox window.

Thank you in advance.

Speed test on a freshly booted machine is 100/100Mbps ... very often after viewing a youtube video in Firefox, this Speed test can slow down to below 20Mbps which results in a poor streaming experience ... I have a 150/150 fiber connection and the modem speed test doesn't change ... nothing to do with anything downstream ... not running anything else except FF ... always running with the latest up to date version(s) ... things of note: the process count goes up when this occurs ... even if FF is restarted it doesn't resolve this issue ... only a reboot resolves the issue ... when rebooting there is always some UNKNOWN process that needs to be manually terminated before the reboot process runs.

I suspect one of the multilayered (FF appears to open multiple sessions with streaming) processes may be getting widowed and left running and not releasing resources which causes less and less bw to be available ... this appears to occur mostly if I either Fast Forward or try to click forward or backward on a stream timeline suggesting to me that the current timeline may not be closing properly ... process manager doesn't reveal any processes linked to firefox but there are numerous svchost processes which I expect may be involved

Are there other ways/tools to narrow down this issue so the Mozilla team might be able to fix this ... I use FF exclusively but this has become more and more of an annoyance.

My i7 2TB 2.6GHz 8GB laptop is unable to move beyond W7 64b pro but I have had the same experience on a W10 64b Pro machine so very skeptical that this is an OS related issue.

Ultimately if FF kept track of the PIDs it opens it should be able to force them to close if they refuse to close on their own. Kill Process tree ... or ... perhaps provide a log that is user accessible identifying opened PIDs so that a user could manually kill widow processes without having to reboot.
