Hello. I've just recently refreshed Firefox. Before I did that, I had a home icon next to the round refresh icon on the upper left of the menu. Now I don't have it. And I can' click to the home icon to get a new home page of Firefox! And I am NOT a happy camper. Did you all forget to put that on there or what?

Yes, I am fully aware that I can click the plus sign to get a new page. But I love the home page icon. Is it coming back by any chance?

Hi, I'm trying to find a way to disable Firefox from automatically switching to new tabs when I click "open to a new tab" (I do a lot of research so I like to open a bunch of links in a row, and constantly having to switch back is annoying lol) but I've been browsing all the advice/tutorials (most seem to be from 2018) but I seem to be missing some of the options? Specifically the option for this preference in the tab settings. Have they been removed or just moved? or is there something more I need to do to find them?

I'm also looking for the option that lets you toggle firefox warning you about closing multiple tabs

(the image with the fb container add on is my setting, the other is from a support site/tutorial)

I have deleted all of firefox on my computer and profiles and cleared all of mozillla from my registy. With a clean install and no extensions, I still get a new tab every time I right click on a link. The context menu I wanted to use and select open link in new tab does appear, but the new tab is already opened. I have to click in an open area to remove the menu. I have switched to the brave browser for now, and it behaves exactly like firefox used to.

i want to play multiple(2) youtube videos at the same time in different tabs inside the same firefox window , what about:config commands do i need?

example listen to one tab in the background while watching another in the foreground tab, in the same firefox window.

second thing: is there a about:config or add-on that gives a mute/unmute for each individual tab located inside the tab header of each tab like a speaker button mute or unmute for individual tabs?

I remember being able to fix this before, but I can't find the config category for it now. Basically, no matter what is already open in other tabs, I always want Firefox to follow my directions and open whatever website I type in the URL in my current tab. I don't care if, say, Twitter is already open in an earlier tab. If I type in twitter.com, I want it to open in that tab, not switch to the previous tab. For example, there may be some sites that update regularly, but I want to hang onto the older version for a bit, so I leave it open. But then if I want to see the newer updated page, Firefox will not allow me to do it. What do I have to search for to switch to True or False to change this?

My power died recently, after which I opened Firefox, expecting to be greeted with the about:sessionrestore page but it was just a blank white page for some reason. The tab name still had "about:sessionrestore" but it was just blank, no window to select and restore. I backed up the sessionstore-backups folder and found the session I need to restore (recovery.jsonlz4). I dunno why, when I uncompressed that file, it saved that broken session as well. So the file looks like {Session with broken about:sessionrestore page -> Broken about:sessionrestore tab -> Session I want -> Tabs I want}

Is there any way to manually restore this nested session? I attached some images to help clarify. I don't really know how to work with json files, I'm using a freeware viewer to read the uncompressed session file. Thanks for any help.

As soon as the latest version arrived (which of course it did without my permission, as usual,) I will click on something which always used to open a new tab but now opens a new window. I have tried to screenshot my settings page which clearly is checked in the box that says open new tab, NOT new window, but my mouse does not show up a screenshot choice like it usually does. I am a computer novice with a brain disability so any explanation from you will have to be ridiculously simple. thanks so much

I have Linux Mint 20.1 Cinnamon OS. Why does Firefox keep opening links in new tabs after using the search bar? I narrowed it down to being the Yahoo search engine. I switched it to DuckDuckgo, but is there a way to keep it with yahoo without new links always popping up? I've already tried opening up Firefox in safe-mode and I double checked to make sure I don't have any extensions/add-ons.

With the latest update a lot of ease-of-use has gone away. Include is the fact that tabs that are playing sound only show an icon when I hover the mouse over them. I can not seem to about:config to get the sound icon to remain, despite changing the setting. This means if multiple tabs are playing I have to search all the tabs individually. It also means I cannot quickly switch to the desired tabs muting and unmuting as I prefer.

While this is a specific problem which I hope you can solve readily, it is a part of a pattern I have seen over some of the more recent updates, where useful features are removed in favor of aesthetics. It was this very mistake that lead me to leave internet explorer for firefox. Leave us the ability to turn on and off what we like, instead of forcing us to accept whatever you think is the trend.
