I lost my tabs. Firefox has been opened and closed several times after losing tabs. I went here https://www.jeffersonscher.com/ffu/scrounger.html. I was able to find the file containing my lost tabs, it is sessionstore(1706800631216_9931f324-5558-4488-a36c-a5b3cb9e8c54_event_jsonlz4).json What do I do with this file now? Thank you.

Hi

Trying to make sync work the way I want. Initial question:

I've synced tabs between Windows desktop and Android. Now I would like to bookmark all those tabs in the desktop browser, without opening them first. I've found out how to view them in the side bar, but I see no option to bookmark all tabs.

It would be nice to have synced Tabs in the Library window and Options panel.

Is there a way to always show the tab close button on the tabs? Or perhaps to show the button on hover of the tab? Chrome does this and I find that very helpful, in cases where I want to close a tab and do not want to re-open that page.

Some context: When you have many tabs open (I know, who does that?) and you want to close some of them, but do not want to select those tabs, currently you can right-click and scroll through the menu to the `Close Tab` option. This is slow and a bit clunky. The `Close Tab` menu option is buried in the bottom-middle of the list.

This issue is somewhat complicated by the fact that I use the excellent Auto-Tab Discard extension to discard/sleep tabs. (https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/auto-tab-discard/) So when a tab is discarded, and you click on it, the tab reloads. Which is silly when you just want to close it.

Anyone aware of a way to always show the close-tab button, or show on hover?

Thanks!

I have enclosed a screenshot showing what happens when I want to go to a new tab on the two computers I use most often. One is my desktop which has Windows 10 Home. The other is my laptop which has Windows 10 Pro. The Windows 10 Home was installed most recently and is the latest version of Windows 10, my tech guy told me; and also the latest version of Firefox 123.0.1. The laptop version of Windows 10 is older. The Firefox version is also 123.0.1.

My hope is that there is a setting I have not uncovered that lets me put some kind of mark on a new tab, as my laptop has had for a few years. This makes it very easy to open. The newer, later Windows version but same Firefox 123.0.1 on the desktop must be right-clicked in the space to the right of any open site, and then the user must scroll down to the "New Tab" line and click on it. Obviously this requires my user clicks and more time, simply to get a new tab that gives me a blank site that I prefer.

I appreciate whatever guidance or suggestions anyone can give.

Hello, I'm currently running firefox developer edition and i'm facing a weird bug: When firefox is started, opening a web url from outside of firefox window does'nt work and display error message: "Firefox is already running but is not responding...". It expects that i close all instance of firefox instead of just opening url in a new tab.

I am using FF 115.7.0 on a Mac. I normally use tabs but when I need a new window, it opens with every one of my bookmarks in a tab. I can open a subject in a new window from an article in a tab from a different window but I just can't open an empty window without getting all of my bookmarks opened in (many!) separate tabs.

Thanks for any help.

I loved Firefox. Yesterday. Today, I very much dislike it. My nice, neat desktop is not overwhelmed with the tab, url, and bookmark bars now taking up fully one-third of my viewable screen. The pinned tab icons are enormous, and I've spent hours and hours trying all the proposed fixes but none of them work. This is like a cartoon of a browser with gigantic everything since I have to manually change the size of every single web page I visit. The pinned tab icons are so huge they are literally blurry. And, yes, it's as easy as Ctrl + 0, but in my line of work, I browse hundreds of webpages a day, and this is just not acceptable.

Just to be able to see a tiny segment of this page to type this question (i.e. how do I fix this or at least roll it back to the way it was yesterday?), I have to minimize the page to 67% (from the 150% it starts every page at) and the TOWERING tabs and bookmarks and enormous search bar are blocking out the top third of my entire 17" screen, so I can literally only see--again at 67% no 100%--this comment box. And only the part I am writing it, if I wanted to use bold or whatever options are up there, I would have to SCROLL up just to see them. This is just insane. And completely unworkable. I don't have hours to spend fixing every page, scrolling up and down to see a single image or comment box plus editing options. There must be a way to fix this or roll it back to my delightfully compact, unobtrusive tabs, search bar, and bookmarks and make it so every webpage I visit isn't so huge that I have to scroll not just up and down to see what I saw yesterday with ease but from left to right, too! Honestly. This is just dreadful.

Hello! My Firefox version is 91.11.0esr Several months ago Firefox starts behave this way. It's much more convenient when speaker button always appears on tab. It's absolutely incomprehensible why developers did it with Firefox. Who likes to waste time searching for noisy tab. I wish it work like before.

Opening links / tabs behaviour help

I've recently made the switch to Firefox coming from Opera, and there's a few behaviours I'm missing / haven't figured out how to set up to match what I'm used to. Could someone point me in the right direction?

1) When I click an external link (e.g. in Discord) to open in browser (Firefox is now default), it opens the link but it overrides the currently selected tab rather than opening a new tab.

2) Following on from that, clicking the link also doesn't make Firefox the active window. Previously if I opened a new link from elsewhere, the other browser would come to the front. Can Firefox do that too?

I currently have it set so that opening a link in a new tab doesn't switch to that tab. Which is behaviour I want (if I'm doing that in Firefox itself).

Hello everyone.

I've been using Firefox for quite a few years now and I'm used to keep my pinned tabs open after closing and then opening a Firefox windows.

Yesterday I noticed that after closing the navigator with the "X" in the tool bar menu, as I usually do, the pinned tabs are not "recovered" when opening again.

This happened randomly without configuration changes involved and drivers/firefox are updated to the last version available.

Moreover, I've tested the same in my notebook and it works just fine, as it keeps the tabs open when a new window is open.

Is there any troubleshooting for this or do you have any idea what could have caused this to happen?

Let me know if you need any additional info. Thanks in advance!

How can I set tabs to automatically preload when I open the browser? I'm just trying to switch from Chrome to Firefox and I can't find such a setting here, although it is a very convenient functionality. I mean that when I open the browser, I can click on any of the tabs and it will be (partially or completely) immediately ready to work without additional loading.

When you open a link from the sidebar while holding ctrl, firefox opens it in a new tab and switches to it immediately; whereas when you click a link from a webpage with ctrl, it does not switch to the new tab (unless you hold shift as well, or check "When you open a link, image or media in a new tab, switch to it immediately" in settings > general > tabs). I would like if firefox does not automatically switch to opened links from the sidebar (history, bookmark, etc.), when I open them with ctrl? (I know I can hold shift to do that, but I was wondering if there might be a preference in about:config to change the reverse this behaviour for sidebars)


Thanks, Ibr.
