I rely on the previous sessions being restored after (the more and more frequent) updates for my work, as I usually need to keep track of many tabs.

Is there a way to save and restore all the currently opened tabs across multiple browser instances? (WITHOUT sharing this outside my computer!)

If you're going to tell me it does this 'automatically' well, yes, it usually does, except for the times when it doesn't.

Hi,

Just got version 89.0 installed. And I totally don't like what happened to the tabs. They are visually disconnected from the page they belong to and transformed to some kind of buttons (at least when selected. When not slected only the caption is visible) . I cannot even imagine why such a useless change is done, but in terms of UI design this is not a good step. It makes things less clear.

I would like to have to old tabs back, but cannot find a theme which can do this.

Is there a setting with which I can set to old tabstyle back?

Thnx

Please, PLEASE put back the space between the tabs in the Proton version of Firefox. As a web designer, I don't understand how any designer on your staff or any supervisor would okay what looks like a seamless tab bar. The UX is horrible.

I've temporarily changed the about:config to mimic Photon. But I understand you are going to get rid of that ability in the about:config file.

Why do you tweak a decent UI into an unusable one? This is becoming an epidemic. Similar things happen on Facebook and with Photoshop (where "upgrades" make parts of the application unusable—that is, they no longer work).

My browser opens new links in new tabs. I want them to open new links in the same tab.

Others inquire about the same issue get a response saying:;

"Did you try it? Some sites add a target="_blank" attribute to links. Links with these attributes are supposed to open in a new window when left clicked. However, Firefox by default opens these links in a new tab in the current window. By setting browser.link.open_newwindow to 1, these links will instead open in the current tab/window."

I need step-by-step help understanding what I need to do to set the browser are suggested in the above response.

I have just updated to Firefox 17; I have used it back from version 3, and I feel it's time to say goodbye to Mozilla Firefox!

I have used a lot of other programs, and I don't think there is any other program that updates as frequently as Firefox - every couple of months there is a new version!

It's not bad thing itself, but very, very bad thing is that, each time I update Firefox, one third of my plugins and addons are not compatible with new version! That completely ruins my joy of surfing the internet; since updating from Firefox 14 to current Firefox 17, I have lost at least five addons that were very important for me; the last one, now, is Tab Mix Plus, it's not compatible with Firefox 17, and my Firefox now looks completely different from what I'm used to, I cannot use it!

This has become unbearable any longer: I cannot cope with constant updates of program and addons, and finding replacements for addons that became incompatible! I want to browse internet, and not always to maintain something within Firefox!

You offered me some half of dozen years of excellent experience of browsing the web, but you've become too user enemy for my liking; , so bye, bye, Firefox!

I installed ShopAtHome toolbar, now Yahoo has hijacked my new tab. How do I fix this to the last visited tabs?

Multiple forums have addressed the fact that Yahoo is hijacking new tabs. I installed the ShopAtHome toolbar - which I love - but then I get Yahoo installed (mysteriously and uninvited).

I would like the new tab to reset to its default of: either the panels of previous sites, or the blank page. The prior issues relating to netassistant do not work.

Any help would be appreciated.
