For the last few updates of firefox I haven't been able to restore closed tabs with the regular keyboard shortcut (believe it was ctrl+alt+t and now ctrl+shift+t). The shortcut simply does nothing at all. It is frustrating as sometimes I close a tab by accident and then I have to go through the whole process clicking to find it instead of being able to bring it back up in half the time using the shortcut. I am on firefox 90.0.

Hello.

Cycling through unpinned tabs is easy, Ctrl+Tab does the job.... But what about pinned tabs?

People are more likely to have more pinned tabs open and saved to their browser than unpinned tabs, like myself, as surely, that is the point of pinned tabs.

So I cannot for the life of me understand why I can't find a keyboard shortcut to cycle through these!! Is it really possible for developers to overlook this simple but extremely useful and effective shortcut?!

Can anyone help?

Mike.

I had to reinstall Windows because of a blue screen of death I couldn't fix. My firefox and everything else was gone. I want to restore my Firefox tabs. I've clicked on history, manage history, then Import and Backup, then Restore, and then I tried choosing the file from before I had to reinstall, but when I click on that file and click open, I get the message, this will replace all of your current bookmarks with the backup. Are you sure? I click ok, but nothing happens. These are the files in the sessionstore-backups folder: previous.jsonlz4 recovery.baklz4 upgrade.jsonlz4-20210504152106 upgrade.jsonlz4-20210527174632 upgrade.jsonlz4-20210622155641

Help! In Firefox 89 (as in all previous) all open tabs lined up at the top (first screen shot). When I updated to 90, they disappeared and only one (current) tab shows up at bottom right (second screen shot). I cannot find a way to see all open tabs as before - only when I close the current tab will the entire lineup of open tabs show for a moment and then go back to the single current open tab. I can't work this way and it's driving me crazy. I've searched online, tried changing settings in about:config and nothing seems to want to put all open tabs back up top where they were. What am I missing? (More - I am trying to upload a screen shot and just get the spinning gear. The file is below the upload size limit. I'm going to try submitting this anyway.)

Hi,

I know this is been asked and discussed multiple times over the years. But the current [CTRL+TAB] and [CTRL+PGUP/PGDOWN] are less that optimum for people who use Mac's.

We like to use CMD+[CTRL/SHIFT]+Left/Right. If there would a menu item for the two operations then it's quite easily do do via keyboard settings. But as that has been removed we're stuck with something which doesn't really work on notebook as there aren't any PGUP/PGDOWN keys ....

Please make it programmable or add the "Next Tab..." and "Previous Tab..." back to the Window menu.

Cheers.

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".

Hallo,

ich bin entsetzt nach der neuen Version.

Wie bekomme ich die TABs von der Taskleiste wieder nach oben unter die Lesezeichen und vor allen stört mich, dass nur der TAB sichbar ist, der im Zugriff ist.

Ich sehe nicht mehr wie viele TABs geöffnet sind bzw. ich kann nicht gezielt meinen Wunsch-TAB anklicken, sondern mich mit >Strg< und >Tab< zum richtigen klicken.

Ein angehefteter TAB unten links, no go, wir lesen ja nicht von unten nach oben.

Meine alte USERChrome.css funktioniert nicht mehr und im WWW finde ich nichts was hilft.

Für Eure Hilfe vielen Dank im Voraus.

When I open a new tab, Firefox shows Google search in a bar in the middle of the page. If I try searching in it, it starts searching in address bar instead with a black background and white script. How do I stop that and search in the Google bar? Settings does not give an option to stop this new annoying "feature". Also, why can't new tab go to my home page instead (which is Google advanced search)?

With the new "tab line", all the tab-line looks the same across multiple Firefox windows: they have the same background color, and the only difference is that those "inactive windows" shall have tab-names in a slightly fainted color.

Attached is a screenshot with a "custom theme", as configured here: https://color.firefox.com/?theme=XQAAAAIWAQAAAAAAAABBKYhm849SCia2CaaEGccwS-xMDPsqufDOWr6IhCp9RnjnsdP9GNu2SjSQBIXJelHlUb_p3iV0Tk_tp5WixtO7xQnun54TM0zzonAd6w0T64epRIX-MPh_WdfDW_w-yhADmUgnb68gPKrs8qenrbJlNLa8ExfeSsKaaHfQ-9sW8GyKyObiSlDh9ijHuiE5lJEM3vAAjTa46EQ7ytUeVh0LL3__uhviAA

Please advise if I am missing something super simple to configure: basically, I'd like to apply a different background color when the Firefox window is inactive. (The Solarized dark theme does part of the job, by leaving an noticeable boarder when the Firefox window is not maximized.)

It also helps if I can completely disable this new "theme" feature and restore to the the old way that these "tab-lines" are rendered.

Thanks a lot!
