MacOS FF dev edition 102 When I roll my mouse over a link, in pops up the URL in the bottom left (i.e. status bar as safari calls it) but there's no indication of if the link will show in the current tab or a new tab. in safari, the end of the URL states "in new tab" if that's the case.

FFox 101.0.1 (64-bit) running in Linux Mint 20.3

Just installed the latest Mint (clean install) and the latest FFox.

FFox tabs are arranged along the bottom of the window! Tabs only appear below the bookmarks panel on the left. On the right, the browser panel is atop the tabs, so the tabs can't be seen. New tabs can't be seen. There appears to be no setting to control top/bottom tab placement -- of course, I want tabs across the top and visible, please. Help!

Also, above "Preferences" > "General" (about:preferences#general), there's an info box that says "Your browser is being managed by your organization". Help!


Regards, Mark.

I can have a youtube video on two tabs, but I cant play both of them. I want to do this because I want to play "1 hour of silence occasionally broken up by AUUGHHH" to jumpscare myself randomly while watching another youtube video because I am a masochist. Whenever I play a video on one tab and go to the other and play that one, the other one pauses. Please help me satisfy my masochistic desires. Thanks in advance :)

A long time ago, I saw a list of open tabs in all windows, not just in one window, as it is now. (By the way, Google has added such a feature to Chrome. Clicking on the arrow allows us to see any open tab and navigate to it.) I am currently using Tab Manager to search for a tab. But the tab manager is not the best option because it is too slow to open and requires too many resources. Can I restore the old behavior to see tabs in all windows?

these tabs are kept open for my Phd. thesis about giants and I am in great need of them. please, do all that you can to restore them for me.

I am trying to set it up so I can have more than one tab at a time or dont have to go to the corner to find a list of tabs or go to a diffrent window to open one. I have the box in the corner with the numbers but that sometimes vanishes entirely so I only have the one tab and would like it to be like most browsers where you can see them all at the top. I cant get the extension that manages it because the only computer I have is one given to me by my job that's a chrome book and doesn't support those extentions, I tried. About:config doesnt work it just tells me that's not a site or gives me advice on how to use it which isn't really helpful when I can't even search it or find the spot for it. The tabs section in the settings only offers to put it on top or bottom of screen or to have it inactive or not, or automatically close them, there is no option to have more than one tab. Please help I've tried everything I can think of and everything I could find online.

I went to settings and set firefox to open links in a NEW TAB instead of a new window, but it still opens links in a new window. I did a search on google and when I click on the link for the website to see the information it is still opening in a new window. How can I fix this so I don't have a lot of new windows. It's irritating to have to close all those stinking windows just to get back to my original window. I just want the links I click on to open in a new tab.

This has happened twice now - I've had a main window open with 100+ tabs and a second window open with only one tab. All settings are as described to save history, etc. After closing Firefox and later restarting, only the window with a single tab is restored. I've saved the session backup files in another location and manual copied and renamed them into the main profile folder but in each attempt, only the single tab window was restored, which is obviously not what I want. I know the 100+ tabs are in the file because of the filesize and because I've used https://www.jeffersonscher.com/ffu/scrounger.html to scrounge the URLs from the backup file. But the point is that Firefox is NOT extracting the data from this file and restoring the other window, which makes me suspect there is a bug or problem with session restore when more than one window is open at the time of shutdown.

Thanks for any suggestions. Bob
