For years I have been using Firefox. If I clicked on a hyperlink in any of my programs, Outlook messages, websites etc, Firefox opened a new tab. That behaviour has suddenly stopped for websites including this one occasionally. It seems to still work for Outlook. Has Firefox changed its policy?

The advice on https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1283295 is to edit browser.link.open_newwindow (3) 1:current tab; 2:new window; 3:new tab; But that is already set to 3.

What other settings might work? And why has this been changed?

Open links in new tab setting does not working, even in safe mode

'Open links in new tab' and 'When you open a link, image or media in a new tab, switch to it immediately' settings do not work, even in safe mode. I'm on Version 96.0.2.

Changing these settings manually also does not solve the issue, tabs still open in the current window:

browser.search.openintab and make sure its value is set to true.

browser.urlbar.openintab and browser.tabs.loadBookmarksInTabs set to true.

Only thing that works for this function is CTRL + Click. Shouldn't these settings work if applied?

Thanks.

When I close FF seems to close correctly I can close all programs then shut down the laptop But when I restart the computer then start up FF, Fire Fox tries to reload the last Browsing session. No crash had happened and I always start a new session. The message that I receive has been clipped and attached. I have tried to close using the x at the open tab and the x at the top right corner I get the same results.

Hi all, for the past two days or so my Firefox has been crashing very often. It seems to have started out of nowhere as I did not change any settings.

I have tried:

Refreshing Firefox Uninstalling and reinstalling Disabling and removing all extensions Running in troubleshoot mode Disabling themes

Yet it still crashes - usually when switching tabs, but it often crashes on it's own while I'm not even doing anything.

Any help would be fantastic

there seems to be a problem when the web site you go to has a extension or calls an outside source to load an add on program within the site which causes a 404 error. I don't know if it is caused by an update or not. But using MS edge everything works and loads as it did before on fire fox. Is there a change in the SW that could have caused this to happen?

I know this has been raised before, but since the last update, Firefox tries to reload the tabs that were open when it last closed. That's annoying enough, but it doesn't do it every time ... very frustrating! I've read a heap of previous posts and tried most of the suggestions ... nothing works. Some of these go back years, but it's a new problem for me that coincides with the most recent upgrade. If it's a bug ... Mozilla needs to fix it! If it's something I'm doing differently, some assistance (from anyone) would be appreciated. Thanks!

Walmart website no longer works properly with latest Firefox 96.0.2 64-bit. It works properly with Chrome and other browsers. You can log onto the site and search for products but when you try to add a product to the cart nothing happens. You also can't actually go to the cart. Last time I used Walmart was a few weeks ago and everything worked fine!

I always used a theme that is dark on the top side (tab area), after the last update, all pages went on darkmode without me making any change, google search, twitter, whatsapp web, even the initial firefox page. The only way to turn that off is to deactivate my theme. I dont want my browser to be entirely on dark mode. How can I roll back this change?

Old laptop is nearly trash, need to transfer profile to new one.

But, it is not clear if Sync actually imports the old profile onto the new computer, creating a profile file.

Since I won't be using the old laptop, I don't need "syncing" between devices, I just need the old profile on the new computer. Is sync the best way to do this? thanks

Firefox won't display tax statements on Caliber.com I had to use Microsoft Edge. Caliber Home Loans allows a user to print last years tax documents. When I click on the document in Firefox it blinks but does not bring up the document. When I sign in to Caliber.com using the Microsoft Edge browser and go to my account and click on the tax document they open in a new tab. I can then view and print them, which I did. I know I can always switch browsers to get my work done, but I like Firefox and wanted you to know there is a deficiency in your browser when viewing tax documents on the Caliber.com web site and the same weakness may be on other web sites if not addressed. Thanks, Jeff

(This note is a reply to a thread that was started late last week. For some reason, I wasn't able to access the details again when I came back to it today.)


The problem is I'm having trouble accessing protected files from my employer.

A grey message box comes up when I try to do so that reads as follows:

"Currently in safe reading mode. This document cannot connect to:

https://learninghub.phsa.ca/courses/20165/react-adult-protection-curriculum-models-1-overview-of-legislation-and-documentation

If you want to enable this function, please check the Trust Manager preferences to disable safe reading."

When I go to 'Preferences' and click on Trust Manager, I'm still not able to access the protected files.

PS I was unable to take a screen shot of this grey box.
