Greetings, for some reason lately over the last couple weeks I have noticed that when I open a link to a site that I've had in my bookmarks for years it now opens that link or that page and then within a couple seconds another tab will open for advertisement or possibly even the duplication of the originally called upon link in the previous tab. I would like to stop these additional tabs from opening automatically without my request.

thanks in advance,

Every day I have to work and use my pinned tabs. But now, they disappear every time Firefox restarts, notwithstanding that your settings indicated Firefox will reopen all tabs on the next session. Why? Where I live there are blackouts every day, especially during the night. So I have to close all my programs, turn off my computer, and restart it early in the morning in order to work. Please turn back to reopen pinned tabs every time Firefox reopens!

Today when I closed Firefox and reopened it the option to restore previous session was not shown, as a result I have lost half my pinned tabs (I managed to redo the rest from bookmarks) which were vital. I tried going into history but the option was greyed out.

This happened yesterday too but after redoing half my tabs I went to open gmail and it restored all my tabs, I tried the sane today but it failed so am stuck with half my tabs.

Please do not suggest I use synch as I only use one device.

Middle mouse button to close a tab not working properly

Hello.

Since some time (few months, can't really say when this started happening), the middle mouse button click on a tab stopped working as before. I will describe the expected behavior and how it (still) works on the same computer with a different browser (Chrome):

1. Hover over a tab 2. Middle-click closes a tab 3. Tabs right to the closed one move left 4. Middle-click closes a tab 5. Steps 2-4 may be repeated unless there are no tabs opened 6. Leaving the tabs bar (if any left opened) will now rearrange the remaining tabs (increase their width, etc)

Now, here is the not so great behavior I am facing in Firefox: 1. Hover over a tab 2. Middle-click closes a tab 3. Tabs right to the closed one move left 4. Middle-click rearranges the remaining tabs (increase their width, etc) 5. Middle-click closes a tab 6. Steps 2-5 may be repeated unless there are no tabs opened 7. Leaving the tabs bar (if any left opened) will now rearrange the remaining tabs (increase their width, etc), if you have left at last step 3

See, there is this extra step #4 which is really bugging me enough to actually come and ask for a support.

I am on Ubuntu 20.04, using latest version of Firefox (to date).

Many thanks!

My laptop updated system just now without closing the browser. After restarting, there is no restore option for firefox. No recently closed taps and windows. But the history is correct stored. I had opened 3 windows with many tabs. I/m wondering if there is any method to restore the windows instead of click the history one by one. There are hundreds of tabs....

Nothing changes. When I start Firefox, it simply won't load all tabs. How do I fix this?

How do I get back a previous session of Firefox (windows)? Firefox froze up. I restarted my computer. Now my session in Firefox doesn't show up at all in 'History'. Isn't there a way to recover a previous session?? I've never had this issue before and had a lot of important tabs in that session that would take many hours to try and find in my complete history from all links.....

I use to be able to open a new Tab and automatically get the home page to appear, now it seems that I either get a generic Firefox home page or a blank one. This is not what I want nor need, if it was I would have chosen it. What is the point of having a home page if you cannot use it??? Having the home page icon now becomes a special icon for a page one just likes to use every time they open a new tab that you have to click on every time you need it. It just happens to be EVERY TIME I open a new tab.

Thanks for your help.

Is there any way to make the tabs more clearly defined from one another? All the tabs seem to blend together visually. There is no line that separates each tab from the one next to it. It's very annoying visually. Can this be changed with a setting?
