Okay, so I have the option set in Preferences -> General for "Restore previous session".

However, when I restart the browser, all my open tabs are lost EXCEPT for any pinned tabs.

Does anybody know why this would be?

When reopening FF, defaults to previous single malicious tab which is COMPLETELY preventing me from deleting it - how can I get rid of same without having to open an entirely NEW session??

[Both antimalware operations run - Malwarebytes premium trial, and RogueKiller (in Safe Mode) came back as there being no detections / clean, BTW; does that mean any infection hasn't migrated to my PC from FF?]

Tried accessing 'places' file on my desktop as seemingly directed; cannot open with another browser (Opera) nor otherwise - to further clarify, malicious tab in question will not allow me to: close it - by either clicking on its 'x', or right-clicking to use 'Close Tab' option in pulldown menu, nor use the previous page arrow, or return to home / the Google search engine screen, ANY other tab which is part of that session.....is there any way to change the default function so it DOESN'T automatically land every time on THAT precise tab upon reopening, and I can then go to History / previous sites visited to delete? Again, there are a LOT of webpages the links of which I haven't had a chance to copy & paste into an email for myself, and I'm hoping that completely eliminating them all, can be avoided......thanks

In chrome if you drag a tab away from the tab bar it becomes its own window while still dragging and as such you can drag a tag out and snap-it to the screen edge in one motion.... But... in Firefox a dragged tab only become a window after you left it go and the windows title bar isnt even positioned where it was dragged to.

So is there a way to make my firefox tabs behave like chrome tabs do?

I move my tabs around a lot and this is literally the only reason i use chrome instead of firefox.

How to Unlearn "Always Open This Tab in a Container" - Remove Site

Hey There!

I have set photos.google.com to automatically open in a tab container called "Google."

Now I would like remove this automatic function, as i might be opening that website in different container tab, since i have a mutipule google accounts spread across different google accounts.

Is there a way to remove or unlearn the "Always Open This Tab in a Container" for a specific domain?

As far as I can tell you can only change the container the automatically opens, but you can't just unlearn it.

Any suggestions?

Maybe add a unlearn option to the menu in the attached picture?

I was doing some research yesterday and had a multitude of tabs open with various stages of information. I took a break and when I returned, Windows had rebooted in order to make/install some Windows updates. As a result, I "lost all the open tabs".

Is there a make Firefox remember what tabs I have open such that, if the computer crashes, reboots or I accidentally hit the "X" in the upper right-hand corner, Firefox will remember all the tabs I had open and go there when I open Firefox again???

I have Firefox 84.0.1 (64-bit), supposedly the latest version at this time.

TIA, Luis

Hi! I have a lot of tabs in Mozilla browser. Sometimes I open one of them separately - but mostly I work in one window. I closed that window with loads of tabs - but after I started it again - Mozilla showed me just 1 tab. I entered History and tried to restore closed windows - and got all 1-tab-windows for the last couple of days - but not the window with all my tabs! I tried to restore the reserve copy - https://skr.sh/i/301220/1VuOM7Wm.jpg?download=1&name=%D0%A1%D0%BA%D1%80%D0%B8%D0%BD%D1%88%D0%BE%D1%82%2030-12-2020%2013:58:34.jpg - but none of them works! Please, help!

I really hate Bing as a search engine. I set my home page to Google, but every time I open a tab my only choices are the Tab page or Blank page. I don't want either. I want to land on my chosen web site, in this case, Google.com. The previous versions of Firefox that I've had always allowed this. Please allow people to chose their own open tab page. Thanks!

Hello, For some reason my Firefox upgraded without my permission last night. I usually refuse the pop ups because every time there's an update it takes me forever to get things back the way I like them.

That said, this time around I can NOT get the tabs to reposition underneath the address bar. HELP?

I have this in my userChrome.css which I believe is where the setting / option should be.


@namespace url(http://www.mozilla.org/keymaster/gatekeeper/there.is.only.xul); /* TABS: on bottom */

  1. navigator-toolbox toolbar:not(#nav-bar):not(#toolbar-menubar) {-moz-box-ordinal-group:10}
  2. TabsToolbar {-moz-box-ordinal-group:1000!important}
  1. TabsToolbar {
position: absolute !important;
bottom: 0 !important;
width: 100vw !important;

}

Why? I note there are over 2300 people who have reported this issue. The Extension, Tabs Backup and Restore looses saved sessions and replaces them with sessions with only a few tabs. 1. What can I do until someone fixes FF? 2. When it is going to be fixed? Is there an extension that works to restore pinned tabs?

I have now spent several hours re-pinning tabs.

Hello guys, I have trouble for a few days, when I open a new Tab, Firefox automatically switched to it, whereas this behavior is disabled in the settings, for a long time... As you can see on the screenshot. I try to reactivate it, and nothing happened, so I disabled it, but no result either.

Do you guys notice the same trouble ?

As a webgroup site manager I usually have a single window open dedicated to multiple pages within the site. I can have as many as a half-dozen tabs ALL with the same name - (then the page-in-use). But all I can see/read is the first part. Is there a way to 'customize' the contents/name/words showing on a tab? Or a way to change the color of the tabs to help differentiate which one is which? I'd like to be able to change "main@beta.groups.io | Messages" to just "Messages" because "main@beta.groups.io | Pending Messages" looks exactly the same until out-of-sight in the tab. Or, I'd be happy enough to make "Messages" green and "Pending Messages" to orange.

When I click on a link, Firefox opens the link in a new window, even though I have "Open links in tabs instead of new windows" checked in Options. I want links to open in a new tab in the same window. I'm updated to the most current version of Firefox, too. How can I fix it?

Thanks, Leah

I have 945 tabs that show up in what I'll call the "Bookmark Took Bar" just below the home page tool bar. Most are duplicates. I want to clear these and only have a few important tabs (bookmarks?) in the bookmark tool bar. Can you help me.

Are books marks the same as tabs. How can I prevent this from happening again?
