So here is my issue. I have about 500 tabs open on my Firefox browser. Whenever I need to restart my computer, I close my session, restart, reopen Firefox and it loads my entire session no problem. The neat thing about this is that when I do this, the tab title (along with the website icon) is preserved but the actual page only reloads when I switch to that tab. For example, imagine I have a YouTube video titled "Programming in Python", the tab would say "Programming in Python - YouTube" with the YouTube logo to the left of the title. There is definitely some kind of cache magic going on because say if that video was taken down on YouTube, the title would still be preserved until I switch to that tab. In my latest reloaded session, I noticed that tabs #250-500 failed to load the tab title and instead show the website URL with the icon I attached below. Is there any way to reload these tab titles without actually refreshing the page manually one by one (kinda like how Firefox does it on startup)? This is kinda how I navigate and it isn't helpful seeing just a URL.

Using Firefox on Linus Mint

Before the latest "upgrade" there were two options relating to tabs "Close Tabs To The Right" and "Close Other Tabs" Now there is an options marked "Close Multiples Tables" which means I have to make an extra, painful and unneccesary click before being able to close tabs.

Is there a way to return it to how it should be?

Now, to close all tabs or tabs on the right, you need to do 2 clicks and use the drop-down menu, which is very inconvenient. All this appeared in a recent Firefox update. I ask you to return everything back. Google Chrome made the same change recently and it was met very negatively.

I have a ton of tabs open on my iphone and was looking for an easy way to clean them up. I have everything synced up between my macbook and my iphone. Is there a way to close tabs on my iphone from my macbook? Going through all of the sidebar tabs on a big screen is so much quicker but I'm not seeing a way to close tabs across all devices. Any advice would be great. If this isn't possible, this would be a great feature to have added to firefox. Thanks.

According to he description of “pinned tabs” (https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/pinned-tabs-keep-favorite-websites-open):

   “Pinned Tabs are small, can't be closed accidentally and open automatically when you start Firefox.”

Unfortunately, this is no true. Often, I find that my pinned tabs end up moved to another window. I cannot say why it happens, but it certainly does, and often. I suspect it is related to dragging the mouse when I am trying to click. I am disabled, and sometimes my attempt to click results in some dragging. If you drag a pinned tab off the left edge of the window, it moves the pinned tab to a new window and unpins the tab. At this point, it is quite easy to accidentally close the tab, and the tab will no longer be automatically opened when Firefox is started.

It should not be so easy to drag a pinned tab to a new window. This behavior should be changed.

Today my PC switched off after an accidental power disconnection. Previously if such an event would happen, upon restart Firefox would ask if I want to restore previous session after "a crash" (also showing a sad bear icon) and i would restore my previous session successfully. Alternatively, I would manually press the "restore previous browsing session" button in the menu (if not prompted automatically to do so upon starting Firefox). However, today, after the disconnection, when I tried starting Firefox, it first ran some update before opening up and didn't give me the window asking if I want to restore previous browsing session. The button for restoring previous browsing session manually in the menu was also greyed out. Somehow the option/preference to restore previous session seems to have been unselected (but not by me!)... I have already tried working with some solutions I found through Google searches about this problem and posted on this forum (including working with previous.js - a file which I can not find) but I haven't been successful though I am not sure if I was getting everything stated right. In the sessionstore-backup folder I could only find recovery.js and recovery.bak files only, nothing else, despite folder settings being set to show hidden files. I must note though that my browsing history is still there, and again, having already opened my Firefox once, I have not closed it again so it's still running on the first instance (currently on the latest version of Firefox) after the crash/restart/update/failed-restore-of-previous-browsing-session...I hope that's hopeful :(

Please help, I had critical stuff I was working on through multiple tabs over the past "few months" and it would be a nightmare to try and comb through the history to restore it piece by piece considering that it shows even the stuff I had closed and was no longer working with...restoring the session would greatly help  :(

The latest update placed Close Tabs to the Right and Close Other Tabs in a submenu. To me this is a confusing change as I now need more clicks to achieve the same thing.

Also I feel that the context menus are too crowded in Firefox. I suggest a padding between the items.

When I create a tab by clicking on a link, normally the tab will open to that link after a small delay. But some tabs just sit there, seemingly dead to the world. I've tried refreshing by hitting enter, or when possible (which it usually isn't) the refresh button on the taskbar, but nothing happens.

If I create a new tab, and cut and paste the link from the old one to the new one, usually the new one will open right away (after the usual delay). Meanwhile, the old one just sits there.

This has happened before (in much earlier versions of Firefox) in a small percentage of cases, but it is now happening with some frequency. I am currently using version 78.0.1 (64-bit).

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.
