Hiya,


I'm having a minor inconvenience with firefox 91.0.2 for a few months now. It's popped up a few months ago and hasn't resolved itself in between updates.

I'm guilty of having many (well over 20) tabs open at the same time and around the 20th or 30th tab even, usually one of the (newly opened) tabs, simply never loads. If I open the same link in another tab, the link (any url) does load. See the screencap below.

This is on a windows 64 bit machine OS build: 19043.1165 (21H1) Windows Feature Experience Pack 120.2212.3530.0

I'm running Norton 360 Antivirus software.

Will try running in safe mode, to see if it still happens and confirm in a reply to this message.

Hoping you guys might have some suggestions.

BTW: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1317506 is probably the same problem, unfortunately the thread has been archived. This one: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1285104 also seems similar.

When I press New Tab, it always sends me to the Firefox Default Homepage. I only have 2 options for the New Tab page. The Firefox Default and a blank. I would like the option to choose what page is displayed when I press New Tab.

Is this possible?

Thanks

Exactly what it says on the tin. For the record, I've followed the instructions listed here and set my google search to not open up new searches in new windows ("tabs)" but the problem continues. I think it's a firefox one but I can't find the about:config setting to fix this if it even is that.

Three times now I have lost over 150 open tabs on Firefox and have spent hours trying to recover them but to no avail.

I have tried absolutely everything I have read in multiple support posts such as clicking on the 3 lines, trying to go into history, etc. The best I can do is go into my history to see thousands of website that I have been to in the past several months, but seemingly no way to restore only the 150 tabs that I had open.

Several of the posts refer to trying to find previous files with names in them such as "session..." and "json..." etc. but I cannot find any of these files on my hard drive.

MESSAGE TO FIREFOX DEVELOPERS: Please please please add an option to load a previous set of tabs that were open a week or two ago. Not an option to open the websites I was on, but the actual saved tabs. Very frustrating!!!!!! It's not reasonable to expect someone to go through 3,000 web pages in the history to find the 150 that I opened and left opened for a reason. A couple of hundred hours of my time in research down the drain.

Please help. I'm using the latest firefox browser on Windows 7. Thanks.

I have already reset fonts in the preferences and enlarged my mac screen overall but I just need to change the darn font used when I click on a tab. Can it be done?

The tabs are no longer visible anywhere. Every single update makes Firefox worse. Who the hell is doing this? How am I supposed to use this browser? If you want me to switch browsers, just say so. Just pop up a dialog box that says "we do not want people using Firefox, please download another browser."

Tried to open Yahoo mail - got message saying this version of Firefox does not support the latest Yahoo mail - update or use older version with limited functions in mail. Updated Firefox browser via link provided - installed - started browser - Home page opens OK - click new tab - try to open mail - new tab appears with black dot moving left / right but nothing else happens - whatever web site I try to open will not open in a new tab - but using the tab which opened with home page on - all websites open ok. Effectively can only have 1 tab open.

Is there no way to save tabs each time I now close my browser? I don't want to bookmark them as almost all are not to be saved. I used to close my browser and be able to reopen the save tabs when I started my browser the next time, now I can't, it's totally crippled my abilities online and what I am using my browser for and leaving me lost now.

Hello everyone, I have always been a fan of the sync feature. i have 3 devices i use everyday with my tabs open between all of them. now, just recently i switched to linux and ported over my 500+ open tabs using the sync feature by just clicking "Open all taps" button. while playing around i missed up the os and had to reinstall it. now i am here in firefox looking at my synced tabs little window and there is no "open all tabs" button anymore. where did it get moved to? i looked everywhere and i couldn't find it. i cant just spend two or so hours opening all my tabs manually...

Thank you for your time.

I was just upgraded to Firefox 91.0. Immediately, pdfs only open in browser tab window after update, no matter what my settings say to use. I have tried "Save File", "Always ask", "Use Windows default app", and my usual choice "Use Adobe Acrobat". Makes no difference. The pdf always opens in a browser tab within Firefox. It was working in 90.0.2, which was the previous installed version before the 91.0 update.

Any suggestions as to how I can fix this?

Hi! I'm going nuts. I have Firefox set to NOT remember sessions when I close and re-open. But every time I re-open the (latest) Firefox on my (up to date) Mac, 3 tabs reappear. It doesn't matter how often I delete history or cookies or empty caches. They are not even 3 tabs from the most recent session! They are from a week ago. And no, they are not pinned tabs!

And yes, I have reinstalled Firefox.

Any idea what I should do?

Many thanks!
