How can I replace the hourglass icon in the url bar, without setting the the ui.prefersReducedMotion to 1, which will then increase the url bar enlarging when opening a new tab?

Bottom line: I want no hourglass icon while loading and disable the "expanding/enlarging" URL bar

Any help will be much appreciated!

I've spent quite alot of time setting up my Firefox "New Tab" layout with the 32 site links I want and all the right logo pics to go with them (sounds simple, but it was NOT), and so on and so on. Now, I'm wondering how I can save all that work so that if something goes awry (Say WHAT??), I won't have to recreate it again (which I probably wouldn't have the willpower to do). I've done lengthy searching on the internet looking for this answer but have not found one. I have "Saved This Page" under "File" but will that will save all the formatting, the layout, the links, logos, etc. of the New Tab page? I don't know that nor am I confident of that. ''''Does anyone know if there a way to save all the user customization of the "New Tab" layout? Also, why can't I take a screenshot of a New Tab page? The tool icon grays out when on a new tab page.

I desperately miss a forward/backward button that allows me to surf back and forth across tabs in my entire survival history. The current system is completely overloaded and you can't find the last tab again.

My tabs failed to open after a Firefox crash. There is nothing else than a 2 kb file in sessionstore backups. Is there anything else I can do, or is all lost? 1200 is a lot, and those tabs hold great value to me. So I'm kind of desperate right now. Any help would be immensely valued! (I will start using a session backup plugin for sure.)

I lost a session with many tabs.

Unfortunately "Restore previous session" was not available. I found a upgrade.jsonlz4 file with a date and time which would have the tabs on it. The size is larger than other ones so I figured this was the best option. I coppied this and pasted it into profiles. Renamed it sessionstore.jsonlz4... Renamed the sessionstore that was in there already to sessionstoreOLD Restarted firefox and when I click on restore previous session button I just get 2 blank tabs.

I then tried the other files which are significantly smaller but still no dice.

I tried the jefferson scrounger and it just gets stuck on "processing"

Any help would be much appreciated.

Please see screenshot of the files I had available to me and saved to a usb.

Pasting an IP into the address bar (from Excel) and pressing ENTER/Return from either the keypad or (sometimes) keys area changes the address bar to [Google search] (empty) - my IP that I've pasted is gone and the website from the IP is not open.

This is happening since the last update. I have not 88.0 version.

I don't have google as search engine! I have Foxy Gestures and uBlock Origin add-ons.

Hello there. I was curious if there was a way to lock individual tabs in my firefox browser. If there as an extension I am willing to do that as well. For example. I would like to lock individual tabs behind a password if my family were to come in my room you would not be able to access a certain tab without a password. I have discovered the "Primary Password" setting but I am looking to lock a tab not my login passwords. Thank you for the help!

The tabs on one of my Firefox windows got really small. Very small and very annoying when trying to click on one tab. I don't know how it happened, and I can't find a way to change them back. I did the usual stuff: rebooted the PC, closed Firefox and restarted, closed that one window and opened it again. No change in the situation. I didn't open, or close, any new tabs on that window. Like a little kid would say: "It was like that when I got here!"

I've seen the threads on minimum tab size and such, but I don't think that will help me, because the tabs in the other windows haven't changed.

I've attached some pictures to illustrate the relative sizes of the tabs. The one with larger tabs is from a crowded window, the one with smaller is from the window I'm complaining about. They were normal size, now they aren't. Help! Please?

Hello! Since I do not see any options for submitting an enhancement request, I thought I'd do it in this forum. Maybe there is an answer already out there that could get answered here? I am a software business analyst, who specializes in usability and process management. Being one of the older users of Firefox (as are many of us 'old folks') ;), I would like to ask if there is any possibility/functionality of being able to change the tab appearance once you've installed a theme extension? Depending upon the theme installed, the tabs are translucent. This is understandable based on being able to see more of the theme, BUT... For those of us who are older, sight impaired, etc., Often it is difficult to see the words on the tab and which one is highlighted. I for one, usually have multiple tabs open relative to my work. It would be so helpful to be able to choose an option to change the tabs to:

  1. 1 Using opaque scale/slider bar (to increase or decrease), or just an option to make the tabs opaque.
  2. 2 Change the font to bold if desired.
  3. 3 Change the color of the text to white or black.
  4. 4 Make the current tab a little more pronounced (i.e., highlighted)

Thank you for your consideration of these development enhancements which would help many users. Should there be an answer out there already of how to accomplish at least one of these requests, (of which I will apologize for I cannot find any info or extension yet), I would be most grateful for your assistance with these options. Cheers!
