In the last few week I have had trouble with "right clicking and open in new tab". I don't know if it's because of the latest update or not. Sometimes, not always, when I try to right click on a link or a button and open in new tab, it looks like it's going to open, the new tab appears there for a few seconds, and then it disappears. I have tried "control" left click and I can sometimes get that to work if I do it several times rapidly. I first noticed it in Facebook, but now it can happen on almost any website. I had version 80.? when I first noticed it, I now have 81.0 and I still does it. Any ideas? It's not that some website don't allow right clicking for copyright reasons, I an familiar with that, this is different in that it attempts to open a new tab and within a few seconds it disappears. Before you ask, I have checked for virus's and malware.

New install of macOS Big Sur and latest Firefox for Mac. There is a bug that is preventing tabs after the second tab from being able to close. It doesn't seem to matter if those tabs are in focus or not.

Hello. It would be good to get "Close tabs to the right" and "Close other tabs" back from submenu to the main menu and get an option to assign keyboard shortcuts for those commands. This would take just one line more and save a lot of time. Thanks.

Hello,

I urgently ;-) need a shortcut to switch between open browser windows. It seems to be one of the basic ones, but is nowhere to be found.

Solutions using Tilde do not work for me becuse it's not available on my Apple keyboard.

Why not use Command +< or Command + > respectively, like many other apps do?

And why not at least let me configure that in a simple fashion myself???

Thanks for any solution!

Hi, I re uploaded FireFox and when I used to open a new tab, it used to show all the previous sites I had been on like Yahoo, Amazon, Ebay and such. Even though I checked the Top Sites (4 rows) to show up when I click on a new tab..the 4 rows of sites I have viewed are not showing up yet..

So, how I do fix this and or when will I be able to see the 4 rows of sites I have just viewed?

Thank you.

A lot of times, I'll have a lot of tabs open while working on a project. This takes up a lot of memory, and when I need to switch what I'm working on, I'd rather not keep the window open to improve performance. However, I'd like to easily reopen the tabs that I had before. I know there is a "previously closed windows" feature, but that only seems to save them for a while and is unreliable; additionally, I don't want to dig through my history to find the sites I was on before. Is there any way to do this?

I would like to restore the warning of closing multiple tabs before closing. I am on Firefox 80.0.1. There is not box under Menu > Options > General tab of "Warn me when closing multiple tabs". When going into about:config and searching browser.tabs.warnonclose the value is true.

I'm not sure where else to look to restore this option.

Can anyone Help? Thanks

Hi,

I synced my tabs from my old laptop to my android device. All the tabs were there in the "synced tabs" folder. I did not open the tabs in my phone thinking they are all safe there (I didn't know about the 7 day sync period, although I restored well within that period).

When the laptop got repaired, I tried to sync back the tabs from the android device. But as soon as sync was done, within few minutes, the synced tabs were gone from both the phone as well as the newly repaired laptop..!! Apparently the sync was again done and overwrite/erased the saved tabs in my android phone. This happened since I did not open any of the tabs in my android device. All of the saved tabs were gone.

I feel, this feature of saving open tabs is a myth. There should be some feature to restore the synced tabs from an older date. Just like a restore point in windows work.

Due to this 'myth', i lost a lot of work that was done over many months.

Before rolling out a feature, thorough testing should have been done. Loopholes like these should have been taken into consideration and patched.

Thanks Aj

Hi. When (re)opening a number of bookmarks, e.g. from MySessions v2020.7.0 or OneTab v1.29, just recently, not before, it opens them in reverse order. Is there a way to adjust/fix/set that list top becomes left most and list bottom right most in the horizontal list of tabs? I am sure it is not those two extensions, since it worked before. Would be great if FF had a feature to reverse all tabs t1, t2, t3...t97, t98, t99 to reverse order t99, t98, t97...t3, t2, t1. How can this be done with existing FF, tools or extensions? Or is there a setting in about:config that would allow correct/reversed (re)opening order? Thank you!
