Hello FF/Moz Community,

I want to right-click on links and open them in a new tab (easy). BUT I want to stay on the original tab where I'm clicking the links. Currently when I right-click a link FF opens the new tab and I'm moved to active tab. The original tab is one or ten tabs to the left.

Any suggestions on how to do this?

Thank you.

Hi

I guess this applies for any web browser, but is there an option to disable this with Firefox...? Basically, whenever my BT connection goes offline, Firefox decides to take it upon itself to open up just to tell me it can't connect/that the web is offline etc. It's seriously annoying. I know it's offline as the hub light will change from blue to green/orange etc. It's even worse if I'm doing something else, such as playing on a game, and it's interrupted by the web browser opening itself. :-\

Any suggestions? Thanks.

I would love it if I was able to group tabs in Firefox. Many other browsers are able to do this, but I love using Firefox and don't want to switch. However, I will if this functionality isn't implemented. I understand that grouping used to be a feature, so I am assuming it wouldn't be that hard to implement. Thank you!

I had a number of tabs open today (~40). Because Firefox started to malfunction, I had to restart Firefox. It happened to me before and I knew that I can restore my previous session so I safely closed the tabs.

When I restarted it, I opened a tab and then I tried to open the Application Menu, but accidentally closed the window. Now, when I've re-opened Firefox and attempted to restore the previous session only that last tab appeared.

Is it possible to recover the pre-previous session? I use Ubuntu 18.04. Where is this information located? and how can I retrieve it?

Middle-click to open link in new tab will mostly open in background but sometimes switch to it immediately

About 99% of the time when I middle-click a link in order to open it in a new tab, it will open the tab in the background. However, every once in a while middle-clicking will open the link in a new tab and switch to it immediately.

I want the tabs to be opened in the background, and my Firefox preferences are set accordingly (i.e., I have not enabled "When you open a link, image, or media in a new tab, switch to it immediately").

Is this a bug, or am I unknowingly modifying my middle click to trigger switch-immediately somehow? If I am, I'd like to know how because there are some times when I'd like to open a link in a new tab and switch to it immediately—just not at random 1% of the time.

I'm trying to recover a profile that has the most recent history, tabs and pinned tabs that I seem to have either lost or overwritten yesterday. I can try to reconstruct from my actual history but I don't remember everything I had open. I'm also not sure what to do with all the profiles that are associated with my browser. The version with my actual name is not the default and is an initial version I used on an older computer.A ny easy answers would be appreciated. It's frustrating that there is no way to contact them Mozilla directly.

Thanks

I run firefox 98.02 on several devices, on linux (Ubuntu 20.04.4 LTS, Ubuntu Studio) and at some point either the windows devices which still have send tab to device menu item are not sending or the linux device is not receiving the tab. The latter is probable as the menu item is no longer in the menu. Is there an "about:config" setting to get that back? Thanks.

Hey, with the latest firefox update I have a problem dowloading pdf files from Whatsapp web. When downloading the pdf it automatically opens up in the same tab, effectively closing whatsapp web. Very annoying, especially when im trying to look at multiple files send in the chat, because every time i need to open whatsapp web again. Instead of opening the file in the same tab I would like it to open either in a new tab or a new window but can't find any settings option that would allow me to do so.

Please let m know if anyone has a solution to this irritating challenge.

Hello, For no reason I can easily identify, the plus symbol labeled tab to open new tabs from the browser has disappeared. I can still easily use the right click of the mouse or the control t keyboard trick, but I would much prefer the convenience of the ever available and accessible plus tab option. Your help to restore this feature would be very much appreciated. I use a Dell pc laptop with Windows 365 and Firefox. Thank you, Milagra Tyler [email removed from public]

This is unbelivable in my opinion. I have lost my last session after updating the Firefox. I hve used Firefox more than 10 years. I am a researcher at a university. My last session is so valuable because I spent weeks to reach some academic sources and articles. And all of those were opened as different pages in my last session. Normally, I have "restore my session after every closing/opening the Firefox setting. However, after the last update, this feature did not worked and I have lost the session. I am waiting to hear solutions from responsible people. If this problem would not solve, I will share my story with everyone I can reach.

So, a few minutes ago, I was trying to open a tab, and suddenly my tabs froze. When I clicked on the tabs, nothing happened. I couldn't get back to any of the pages I was on. So I exited the browser, and when I reopened the browser, even my pinned tabs were gone. This has happened a few times in the past. I used to just brushed it off, but I don't have the patience right now. What if this happens when I'm in the middle of typing out an essay? What if my progress isn't saved then? I can't have that happening, so I need to know. What should I do when my tabs are frozen and unresponsive?
