Is there a way to remove the close button when i only have a single tab open? I constantly click the close button whenever i have a single tab open when i mean to click the new tab button. I dont see the reason why there should be two close buttons (one on the tab, and one on the upper right of the window)

Does anyone know how to disable Firefox from opening two windows when clicking on a link through a mail application? If Firefox is closed, every time I click on a link through a mail application, Firefox opens the link AND a second window set to my homepage. It is so annoying. Any tips?

Apparently, Firefox 71 for Mac no longer allows tabs be dragged within a browser window to reposition them. Is there a way to fix this? Am I missing a setting?

Formerly, one could reorder tabs in a Firefox browser window by clicking and dragging. One could also click and hold a tab and move it to create a new window or take a tab from one window, click and drag it to another window. I am no longer able to do this on my Mac laptop, after updating to Firefox 71. I can't seem to find a special setting in Firefox 71. Is there one or a way to allow tab movement? Or do I need to revert to the previous version of Firefox?

As long as Firefox has added the containers feature in the last updates, the actual behavior of the new tab button needs to be updated, or at least configurable. If you're in a specific container, new tab opens a no-container tab. I believe this should be the actual container of the active tab, instead of a no-container.

Used to be able to move a tab into a different window by dragging it there. No longer works (Win 7, FF75 and now 76) despite your help article that says to do just this--so how can I do this? I'm trying to consolidate a bunch of tabs currently in their own windows, into just one window which will hold all the tabs on a related subject.

Hello!

I have firefox 74 (64-bit), after one of the bluescreens that sometimes happen for my laptop, my Firefox tabs became very, very transparent.

This is it how it looked before: https://puu.sh/Fnzh1/b606c91b73.jpg

This is how it looks now: https://puu.sh/FLYyk/63fb3fab0e.jpg

As you can see, in both cases I have 3 tabs opened and some other firefox window below. However, opacity is very high in the first case and you almost don't see anything else aside of the 3 tabs opened, while in the current situation is like non-existent and if not the difference in the size of the tabs, you wouldn't even notice that these tabs are not from the current window, but from some other window below!

Can someone help me understand how it happened and, more importantly, how to fix this problem? I tried searching options for things like 'transparency', 'transparent', 'opacity', etc., but couldn't find anything :-(

Hello Community,

I always used Firefox as PDF-Viewer and it worked fine. But since the last update it is not possible to view PDF-files anymore: whenever I click on a PDF or a link to a PDF - Firefox creates new tabs endlessly. When I quit Firefox and restart it I have lots of new and empty tabs in the browser, but no PDF. It's very annoying because I have to close them all manually and can't view PDFs anymore.

I have not installed any new software, no registry hacks, have changed nothing in the browsers config, so I suppose it has something to do with the update to 76.0.1

Any ideas? Thanks in advance.

Sometimes when closing Firefox, something has opened a new browser session that i didn't know about, and I close it too, and since it only has one tab open, it becomes the save session with only that open tab, thus i lose all my tabs from the first session, how do i recover all my tabs them from the first session? Sometimes, if Firefox has crashed, it asks if you want to recover your previous tabs, but only if it crashed! I would like an option to force that same recovery when you open Firefox and all your previous tabs are gone and replaced by one stupid tab you really didn't even want in the first place and not have to find every previous tab one at a time. If there was a recent history of sessions or at least the previous 2 sessions we could recover all the lost tabs from that first session! This has happened many, many times to me and if very frustrating to loose all my open tabs and have to start opening all my old tabs that i use all the time!

The newest update has a feature which annoys me a lot, and that is that opening a new tab seems to enlarge the search field temporarily. I find it very irritating and causes me to waste a click in my workflow just to get rid of it. I'd very much like a way to disable this feature - it definitely diminishes my usability experience!

I lost "restore session" page when I restarted my computer having forgot to force stop Firefox from Task Manager. Is that session stored somewhere in computer?

I usually force stop Firefox from task manager before turning off my computer  in order to have the "Restore Session" tap open BUT this time I forgot and simply turned off the computer with Firefox still running and when I opened firefox again I lost ALL MY TABS. (I'm crying). "Restore Previous Session" button is no longer pushable. I only have the option to start a "New Session". Can someone help me retrieve this session from somewhere in the Harddrive of my computer or somewhere in the cloud. I tried browsing through my firefox history but cannot find a single trace of the "restore previous session" tab.

Please help. I'm all balled up...It's all gone...
