I am so fed up losing my pinned tabs.

I want a Firefox facility where I can have permanently pinned(locked tabs) and normal pinned tabs.

The permanent ones must not be able to be removed without myself physically clicking and removing them individually and are persistent when opening new browser instances, cannot be cleaned/removed by other cleaner programs are not saved in History.

Permanently pinned tabs should show a mark on the tab like a red padlock.

I use One Tab, but that has it's down side in that it clears my Tabs from the browser in to one single tab and then it is difficult to manage them, there are others and they all have their failings.

Please provide this locked tab facility.

I am looking for a way to enable Firefox to copy and paste PNG images with transparency. Right now, copy/pasting a transparent image replaces the transparent areas with solid black. This feature works as expected in all other mainstream browsers (it's something I use a lot in my workflow as a graphic designer for a website).

This bug has existed for a while, I'm hoping by now there is at least one extension that fixes it, or some kind of workaround. Thanks to anyone who can help.

This is not a big issue but I have to double touch the “X” to close Firefox on my touch screen Dell XPS 13. If I use the cursor and click on the “X” Firefox closes fine. Chrome, Edge, etc. close with a single touch so this appears to be unique to Firefox. I opened Firefox in safe mode but it still required a double touch. I have uninstalled and reinstalled Firefox a couple times. I have tried this on a similar laptop with the same results (i.e., required a double touch). Any suggestions would be appreciated.

I love how the new tab page clearly states "Never fear losing a closed tab again.", and then when a window disappears it is followed by zero history to recover it. I have not restarted Firefox, let alone my computer since the last time the window was seen (about half an hour ago). It's not in my Alt+Tab tray hiding. I don't even remember closing the tab--though it's possible my keyboard double pressed when I was closing another window. (It's old and has a tendency to double hit keys). But now I have lost a window with at least 20 tabs open--mostly things i had yet to deal with and don't remember the URL to get back to it.

What use is my history and ability to reopen accidentally closed windows if everything just disappears from it within half an hour after the window could've been closed?

I would prefer to keep most of my browsing on Firefox, but I can't constitute that if I'm going to lose months worth of saved tabs randomly.

Hello, I may be in the wrong place, but I do not know all the proper terminology or definitions. I use Firefox for my browser. I have for many years. Starting yesterday, I was unable to access my History, I tried the other items across the top of the screen and none of them are accessible. Somewhere I saw I should click on a menu button for finding history: I cannot find a menu button "in the upper corner". I kept looking for help and was sent in circles. I also kept seeing something about Firefox Accounts; and Firefox Accounts vs. Mozilla Accounts: I have NO idea what that means. I tried to sign in: no. So, I think I have created a Firefox account now, with a password and done the "reset". I also do not know what that means, but here I am. Please someone tell me how to get help: help that does not assume I already know the answer. Thank you.

Hi, It would be of great help to me if you could give me an advice how to fix my Firefox browser in order to be able to use it with sound. It used to work untill a few months ago, but once, with no reason, just stopped playing sounds , no matter if I accessed a news channel, Youtube or other site that uses sounds.. for this purpose I am forced to use Chrome or Microsoft Edge, but I like more Firefox. I mention that I have an i7 laptop with a Windows 10 OS. Thank you.

I have been using the coderanch.com website for more than a decade and most of the postings include listings of source code which I was (past tense) able to cut a paste into my own development environment. With the latest version (107) of Firefox this has broken, the document now gets numerous non-printable characters (decimal 160) for the leading indents of the code. I'm assuming they are being somehow substituted for the tab character.

Here's an example

https://coderanch.com/t/755856/certification/Questions-errata-Sybex-OCP-Study

I went back to version 105 and the problem went away. Also Chrome does not have this problem.

Please fix soon as it is impacting my ability to help others on the coderanch site.

I have the exact same issue as the following users, and have yet to find a solution to the problem. "In MacOS Big Sur 11.1 on my MacBook, I have set MacOS to automatically switch between Light Mode and Dark Mode. But I notice that Firefox does not handle this well. When I have used my MacBook Dark Mode and switch back to Light Mode, Firefox still hangs in Dark Mode. The only way to solve this is to choose Light Mode in System Preferences instead of automatic."
