I cannot open a new tab by clicking the + sign in Firefox. This feature works in Chrome and IE. I have uninstalled and reinstalled Firefox. I have done all the available updates. I have done a reboot 2x. Ctrl T will not open a new tab either; however, I can do a search for something and right click to open in a new tab. I use the tabs frequently and really miss them.

HELP!!!

At one point the names of all my Tab Groups appeared above the Tabs. That is, on every page there's a horizontal list of open Tabs. Above that there used to be a similar looking horizontal list of all Tab Groups. Now that horizontal list of Tab Groups is gone. This was useful for rearranging and re-categorizing Tabs into different Groups because I could see the whole page for any given Tab, and could move the Tab to a different Tab Group simply by clicking on the Tab and dragging to to any Group in the Tab Groups section above the Tabs section. This was usually easier than rearranging Tabs on the Tab Groups page (accessed by clicking the "Group your tabs" icon at the upper right of the display). I don't know how this feature got there or why it went away, but I liked it. How can I get this back?

I am using Firefox Version 17. Previous versions had a triangle on the right end of the toolbar that would show a list of tabs open on the window. I no longer see it.

It was described in the "Help" instructions as follows:

There is a tiny little button, you may have been ignoring. It does something wonderful. It looks like a really small downward triangle. Use that little button to engage the tab list.

I have used Firefox for years and have always used Tabs instead of opening new windows. I have always been able to click the little "X" on the right side of the tab to close it. I am finding now that I cannot close the current tab by doing this. I have to click on another open tab and then click on the other tab I wanted to close.

I have looked through the Options many times trying to see if there is a setting I need to change, but have not found anything.

Is it possible in this version of Firefox (v17.0.1) to close the current tab?

It's maddening that I can't fix something so simple.

When I click on the "+" a new page opens with unpopulated entries for websites. I've tried the steps in "New Page Tab" and managed to drag and drop a bookmark from my "library".

The prompts look OK but the site does not appear in the vacant entry box. It looks like it should work. Is there a simple (stupid) step that I'm missing?

Thanks, Stan

Both the New Tab button and the "+" were working fine until this morning. Since this afternoon, however, they both stopped working. I click on both of them and nothing happens. I am unable to open a new tab. I am forced to open several browsers in order to work with different windows. I followed the suggestion of another user and checked the add-ons, and nothing happened. I do not have ASK bar, so that is out also. Can you help? I ran out of resources. Thanks!

A website I visited recently required that I upgrade to the latest version of Silverlight. I did this, and Firefox said it needed to be restarted. When I restarted Firefox, even though it asked me to save my tabs on that initial restart, my tabs weren't saved. Now, whenever I close Firefox, the warning that I'm about to close x number of tabs pops up, and there is no option to save my tabs. Clearly upgrading Silverlight was the cause of this error, but how do I re-enable the option to save tabs?
