I am trying to restore the tabs from a crashed session. I have successfully done this in the past by renaming the lost session in the sessionstore-backups folder, but this is no longer working for me. I have the session file I need, but even when I rename it, when I reopen firefox it keeps reverting to the most recent session which has none of my tabs. I have tried deleting every file in the sessionstore folder except the one I want firefox to use, but it will not use it; it overwrites it every time with the more recent session. How can I get firefox to load the session file I want? Thanks for your help

hi guys and girls of mozilla,

ive a little issue with a custom homepage i made which i want to use as my new tab page. im on linux and use firefox 76.0.1 (64bit).

i set up a autoconfig.cfg file with this code:

// var {classes:Cc,interfaces:Ci,utils:Cu} = Components;

  • set new tab page */

try { Cu.import("resource:///modules/AboutNewTab.jsm"); var newTabURL = "/home/joe/.mozilla/firefox/h75u1z1z.default/startpage/index.html"; AboutNewTab.newTabURL = newTabURL; } catch(e){Cu.reportError(e);} // report errors in the Browser Console

i also set up a autoconfig.js file with this code:

// First line should be a comment pref("general.config.filename", "autoconfig.cfg"); pref("general.config.obscure_value", 0); pref("general.config.sandbox_enabled", false);

theyre saved in lib/firefox and lib/firefox/defaults/prefs

i then put firefox to open new tabs with a blank page. now it works like this. when i click open a new tab i get a blank page. but in the urlbar is the file selected. now i only need to press enter and i have my new tab page.

the question now is- how can i force firefox to press enter for me. that it opens the file directly and doesnt need me to press enter.

can u spot any errors in the code i copied from a thread in reddits/r/firefox CSS forum?

or is there a setting i can change which makes it the page opens by itself?

ill add two pics- one when i just opend the new tab and one after i clicked enter

Don't know if this is connected to my previous question about being unable to login to bt email. After refreshing Firefox, left click on a link opens it in same tab instead of separate tab. In options, Open links in tabs instead of new windows and When you open a link in a new tab, switch to it immediately are both checked. This is happening on my pc and laptop. I know I can centre wheel click or right click and open in new tab but why has behavior of years stopped working. I am fast losing faith in Firefox.

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 :-(

Just wondering if anyone else is having the same issues, every so often, when I open a new tab and enter a website name and hit enter the tab closes and returns me to the main tab that I had open. It never happens twice in a row and is often unpredictable when it happens. Unsure if it is a bug or just some setting that might be causing it? I am using an up-to-date browser in a windows 10 environment. Thanks for any comments or suggestions.

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.

Imagine the following scenario: 1. I go to a search engine and look for "dogs". 2. From the result page I click on a link to a dog page. 3. I close the browser. 4. I open the browser again later. 5. The tab that is supposed to be the restored dog page is the dog result page of the search engine instead.

It seems like firefox sometimes isn't saving the actually last page but instead some of the previous ones.

I am using Firefox 76.0.1 with addons uMatrix, uBlock, OneTab

Thanks for the help, cheers
