Firefox 67. After last update, I cannot get new tabs to open at the end. The suggestions for earlier versions of Firefox don't work.

I want a related tab to open as the next tab and a new tab to open at the right end of the tabs. Under about:config, I tried to change browser.tabs.insertAfterCurrent and browser.tabs.insertRelatedAfterCurrent. No combination of true and false makes any difference - a new tab always opens after the current tab.

The "Customize..." feature lets you move around icons and other things in Firefox's interface. When you apply these customizations, they *should* be saved in your browser, so that the next time you open Firefox, you have the same customizations you applied earlier. Whenever I restart my computer, these settings are completely reset to their defaults and I have to apply the same customizations every time. How do I fix this???

Hi, I recently installed the new firefox on my mac and lost all my bookmarks. No problem, I imported them and they appeared. But every time I restart my Mac, I have the same issue - no bookmarks, browsing history, passwords gone and I have to do it all again. Super annoying. Sometimes a screen appears asking me to start a firefox account to sync bookmarks etc - just add my email and password, which I do and it tells me my password is wrong. Which it isn't. So I try another email and password. Again it tells me its wrong. Argh. Stuck in a tech black hole and can't get out! Help please...!

on other browsers I can see the time and exact date of my browsing history. I cannot seem to find that on Firefox. It lists the last 7 days all together as far as I can see. I cannot tell which day I was at which site. The SORT doesn't seem to help either. Am I missing something? Can I get exact date and time from Mozilla? Thanks

Sine the release of Mozilla's accounts, Firefox refuses to allow me to save a homepage. Firefox also has 3 popups telling me to get an account (Which I have and am signed in to) almost every single time I open it. Is there a fix or should I just switch to Chrome? (Flash was not installed when this problem began)

When surfing the web, I find that Firefox doesn't close a tab when I leave a page..and will end up with multiple open tabs which seems to slow the browser and/or the current page that I'm on. I can't find a setting that will change the way that Firefox addresses this.

Today I got a new case for my computer so I moved all of the hardware into the new one, keeping my configuration the same however. The only changes that I am aware of are the hard drives are probably in different SATA ports than they originally were. The PC was shut down correctly before I moved the components, and the passwords were definitely there, and logging into sync is not returning the passwords.

I am running Arch Linux with LXQT with Firefox version 67, and have also noticed that I have a logins.json.corrupt file in my default profile folder.

Thanks

A little background- This is on my work computer. The main web portal I use for my job produces a separate window for "reminders." If I fail to close that window before exiting from my main browsing session, it will warn me that I am attempting to close multiple tabs. I get no such warning if I close the reminders window first. I don't know if that's related or not, but I figured it was worth mentioning.

I have "Restore previous session" turned on in the Options, but lately when I start up in the morning, my tabs sometimes fail to show up. I'm not given the option to restore the session, either in the menu tab, or just when the browser starts up. What can I do to fix this?

I'm have been trying to get Firefox Sync to work on my account to no avail. For some reason, it sees Firefox for Android as "Web Session, Firefox Mobile 67." I downloaded Firefox from the Play Store. However, It shows Firefox for Android as "none connected." I'm getting real frustrated as I really want to use Firefox Sync but it has been an absolute pain to get it working. If anyone could help me with this problem I would really appreciate it.

BT are changing their email system. My main email is on the new system and my other email is on the old system. I can get to the login box. If I go to my second email I can access my emails but if I go to my main email (which is on the new system) it continually tries to load and I cannot get on to it. This has been happening since last Tuesday (4th June,2019) before this it was working. I have suspended Adblock for the site and stopped blocking cookies but it still won't load my email account. I downloaded Chromium and I can access my email account this way. I spoke to someone at BT and they said that it was a problem with Firefox as I could access my email account through Chromium.

I do not understand why I can access the email account that is on the old system and not the one which is on the new system. I find this very frustrating, as I want to use Firefox not Chromium, and it was working before Tuesday.

I use Linux Ubuntu.

When I got the last 2 or 3 updates of firefox, there were some websites I could not fully access. One of them is accounts google which also means not my youtube account either. All this in non-private browsing. I tried disabling all extensions, I tried in safe mode, and nothing changed. Also some other methods which did not work. And when I get to accounts google to sign in, I click on the next button and nothing happens. So, I tried private browsing and was able to sign-in to youtube and accounts google. I've tried all types of combinations on my content blocking but to no good result. I need a solution, please.

HI. I keep having to go in and mark the box to automatically save passwords. Everytime I use firefox it has reset back to not saving the passwords for any of the sites I usually save them for. It's been doing it for a couple of weeks now. I go in and tick the box then have to refresh the site I was on and it will then work. What could be causing this issue please.
