When firefox is in full screen mode, as soon as I take my mouse cursor to switch tabs the Mac Os action bar (bar with close and minimize icons on it ) covers the tabs and make it hard to switch tabs, same happens while reaching for address bar which extremely annoying and frustrating.

I see other applications handles it really well for this situation so its not the macos issue. I reported this on twitter too but no satisfying response. I like firefox and don't want to switch back to other browser so please fix this. This issue is extremely frustrating and impacts the core functionality of the firefox or browser in general.


I have attached images from Chrome and source tree, both are third party application. Best handling of this action is done by safari, which smoothly animate and make the space for close and minimize buttons along with the tabs but that's a first party app and not sure if the same can be achieved by third party apps.

I am running Big Sur but this was happening even in Catalina.

Thank you!

Hi,

I just downloaded Firefox on my new PC (laptop) but for an unknown reason opening a link in a new tab doesn't work. Opening a link in a new window doesn't work either, and opening the link in a new private window does not work either. It is getting frustrating to say the least, as I've never encountered this problem before and I have no idea what to do. :)

Thank you kindly in advance for your help!

When I open a link in a New Tab, Firefox continually returns a blank page. (Previously, Firefox would happily open up to 10 or more Tabs for reading later, without batting an eyelid)

Firefox even declined to open my Home Page a short while ago.

The only extension I am using is Adblock Plus, and even disabling it, or restarting in Safe Mode, makes no difference.

I am using Firefox release 83.0 - and I've tried turning off Hardware Acceleration - again, no difference.

Any help/advice much appreciated Robin

For last few weeks whenever I open a new web browser in firefox the screen display now open slightly off screen with the top having moved up (and also a little to the right) making the scroll bar barely visible and tabs not visible. I can grab and move sometimes but it has become a consistent problem and I do not know why. Nothing has changed that I am aware of. How can this issue be fixed? Thank you

I HAVE SYSTEM RESTORE ON MY FIREFOX. When I purposely restarted my computer, for an unknown reason, a session came up but my previous session did not automatically restore as usually it does. I did something in that window and was thinking about something else and deleted it, ie: the session. OH S _ _ _! Just lost my restore previous session opportunity..... I opened another session (and restore previous session was grayed - not available) and have not closed my session nor re-started since. Is there any other way to go back and recover my lost session windows and tabs? .... not from the previous session that I accidentally closed, but from the session before that? Thanks in advance.

Hi there

since a few weeks it happens daily that by accident I transfer a tab into a new firefox window obviously by moving/clicking the mouse quickly in a way that leads to this new window. then I need to copy the email adress, close the new window and make in the original window again a new tab and paste it there and place it on the right spot. not really handy... not sure what changed in firefox since this did not happen in the past. did there change sth or how better said how can I avoid that this is happening, can I lock tabs that they will not get a new window. does someone know this problem? Thanks Andy

I'm using 83.0 64bit on Windows 7 SP2. This problem occurs randomly.

I try to open a site; say reddit.com, on a blank tab and it stalls. It never loads. The grey ball on the tab title moves side to site and the page is blank. I open a new tab and type in the same url and it loads fine in the 2nd tab. (The 1st tab is still blank and loading... ) It's not just reddit.com. This problem happens on any sites, Google, vk.com, facebook, etc... When the tab stalls once, it never works with any of the URLs I type in or click from bookmark.

I tried clearing the cache and cookies but it didn't help.

Any suggestions?

The + for adding a new tab is located at the upper right hand corner of my Firefox screen. Is there a way to have it show up next to the last tab that was opened? My Firefox at home has the + next to the last new tab. My Firefox at work has it on the upper right hand corner. The attached file shows what I am talking about with the + circled in red and the yellow arrow showing where I would like it to be if this is possible. Thanks.

When I access Task Manager from the Firefox menu or just type about:performance the screen comes up, but it only shows information for Task Manager itself (low impact) but doesn't show information about open tabs / websites or add-ons. I was trying to use it to see if one of my open tabs was impacting browser performance. I have the latest version of Firefox.
