I have many tabs like 200-300. Firefox crashed today. I also have 4GB page file on top of that. Strange! After I restarted Firefox it was using only 6.8GB RAM. Perhaps memory leak. BTW if I have browser.cache.disk.enable set to false. Is page file still used?

Thanks for help.

Hey!

First time I get that, I usually lose my tabs due to my mistake but this morning after starting my PC all the tabs were gone with no option to restore or any error message. I backed up my previous session json and other files by hand but every time i copy it back into my profile folder and rename it sessionstore.jsonlz4 it just gets deleted after I open firefox and none of my old tabs get loaded. I scrounged the files before and saw that they contain my lost tabs, I just can't seem to restore them. I tried reinstalling firefox too but that didn't help.

Did the restore system change or is the backup corrupt ? Thanks!

I was using Duck Duck Go to search on subjects, and as I was looking at the pages it listed I suddenly could not open any of the links returned at all. I have Firefox set to open links in a new tab, but it stopped working suddenly, and would not open the links at all. Why might this be?

I have this option enabled, so when I open a new tab, it instantly switches to it. This works when I install Firefox, but it stops working later for some reason. I tried to start Firefox in safe mode under another profile (with no addons) didn't help.

Today I opened my Firefox and all my tabs are gone. I was able to find a backup in sessionstore-backups, but when I renamed it to "sessionstore.jsonlz4" and replaced the one in the main profile folder, opening Firefox still don't gave me any tabs, just the default "new tab".

When holding Ctrl and clicking the back arrow at the top left manually, it opens a new tab with the URL of the previous page, as it's supposed to. But for some reason, when I hold Ctrl and press the back button on my mouse, it doesn't do the same. This is quite annoying, as sometimes I need to navigate back, but keep the current page open as well, and this forces me to move my mouse cursor all the way to the top left and back again

Mac OS 10.10.2 Firefox 78.9

Problem: When I go back from full screen mode, the half top of tabs(more like the 2/3 part to the tab) becomes not clickable. Only way to solve it is just to restart the browser.

There is another thing that could provide a bit more info. No matter whether I've ever made it full screen or not, the 2/3 top area of the tabs will never turn grey when I put my mouse on it.

No add-ons and themes installed. Tried safe mode and it didn't works.

The same bug exists on the other Mac, which runs an older version of firefox.

as seen https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1233468

Managing container still isn't easy. You can reopen a tab in a "no container" by clicking ON the tab itself but this option isn't available in the "always open this site in"

There NO option to move the "X coloc" tab to a "no" container.

For site that open new tab it doesn't open new tab in the same container

Exemple : Spotify i managing 2 account (one for me, one for the kids). I chose to alway open it in the "green" container, but as i try to login with Gmail while in the green, it open in a new "no container" tab instead of opening in a "green one". Worst i can see it going from green to orange no black.

So, only way to really do it for not : "X coloc tab" an use a private browsing

Hello, please forgive my language since it's not my native one, I hope it will be understandible...

Since the last firefox update, I've got an issue with my tabs. I use a lot of them (3000+) and it wasn't a problem until now : when I started my computer, firefox launched all the tabs of my previous session, but they loaded only when I selected one of them. I could still launch other program, play games etc

Now when I launch my computer, my memory is sucked dry by firefox (50% to 80%), firefox take a massive amount of time to launch and load my previous session (5 secondes before update, 5-10 minutes now) and I can't use it without some serious lags. If I try to open new tabs it's getting worst and worst. I've try to restart it, repair it etc, but when I try to reload my tabs with a backup, the same issue happen again...

Does someone has an idea to fix this ? Or what the problem can be ?

Why, why why? Why is every step forward (supposedly) for Firefox a step back for my experience?

Why do you continue to break things instead of fix them? Why?

Okay, enough of my rhetorical questions, here is my real question:

With my install of 78.8.0, my tabs moved above the location bar again. How do I get them back to below?

Hello,

When I go full screen mode on firefox (version: 87.0 64 bit) and mac (version: Big Sur 11.2.3) both the top and bottom apple tool bars go away (which I want to happen) but the firefox search bar and bookmarks are still there on top.

When I go FS on my windows computer, the full web page displays and then when I hover op top the firefox search bar pops down until I hover off it, this is what I want to happen on my mac!

See attachment of firefox search bar staying while in FS mode and please help! Thank you for your time.

There is a little robot in my search bar, that makes my search bar orange with a lighter orange stripe pattern. When I hover my mouse over the robot it says "this browser is under remote control". I have googled and looked everywhere for more information about this, as I am completely unaware on what it is. Could someone tell me what it is and what it does? I really just want to make sure it isn't a virus, and that I don't need to keep covering my camera anymore.

Thank you so much.
