I have the preference turned on to warn me when quitting the browser with open tabs. However, Firefox asks me if I'm sure I want to quite and close tabs for every tab that I have open (up to about 10, and then it just quits).

There should be a way.

A way = An option if enabled, this happens:

The browser starts to remember the state of the tab he/she was in.

For example, if I am learning by watching "How to build a portfolio website?" video on YouTube or some website in FullScreen, then if I switch to next tab pressing "Crtl + Tab", where I can see my portfolio website which I am editing from VS Code realtime. Now if I press "Ctrl + Tab" again, I want to see my YouTube video in same way, it was left before (i.e FullScreen).

Please, for the love of God, give students like us this functionality where students are not annoyed by having to go to fullscreen again and again.

(If you don't understand what I am trying to say then, do watch see this: https://imgur.com/a/yjibtLG )

Remember the state of fullscreen-ness, your highness. It's a painful process to repeat every single time.

Students learn millions of things every single time through the internet these days. The total amount of time that we save by providing this option is just mindblowing.

Let save time. Let make Firefox intelligent. Pass this idea at least.

There should be some sort of option in about:config where the browser starts to remember the state of Fullscreen videos especially when he/she does this by pressing Ctrl + Tab.

How to align all tab content (tab text, tab icon) on left but keep tab close button on right in userChrome.css

I am currently using a css theme that makes firefox look somewhat like safari, so all of the tabs' content (the text and icon) are lined up in the center. However, the close tab button also ends up lining up in the center, and I'm not sure how to fix that, because of the following code:

/* Center all content */ .tab-content { display: flex; justify-content: center; align-items: center; margin-top: -1px; min-width: 100% !important; padding: 0 10px !important; }

the align-items: center makes it so that the close tab button is also in the center. How can I change the position of the close tab button individually?

Hello everyone,

So I am having this issue that I have attempted to fix but when I fix one issue it seems to cause another. So I use MacOS with Firefox as the default browser, both of which are running the latest version. I use SwissCows as the search engine and the problem I encountered was that when I would click on one of the search results, it would open the link in a new tab. As one may imagine, this would get confusing quickly. To fix the issue, I went into advanced preferences and adjusted browser.link.open_newwindow and browser.link.open_newwindow.restriction values to 1 and 0 respectively. It fixed that problem, but now I have a new problem. Certain links from third party email app or log ins from extensions will open in the current tab instead of opening in a new tab.

Any advice or is this just something that I am going to have to learn to deal with?

Firefox opened today with its page, rather than "restoring my previous session:. I notice now that in Options-General I cannot select restore previous session because it and "warn when quitting the browser" are greyed out, leaving "always check firefox is your default browser" as the only item I can select. What has happened?

When I'm minimized or maximized the browser, there's these white bars that appear around the browser. If I restart the browser, the bars will be gone for awhile and it will happen again. See attached image for a clearer idea of what I'm saying.

Also, if I minimize the browser completely, I can never open it again until I close and restart the browser. Not sure what is happening.

So when I use Firefox on my devices (2 PCs and 2 phones) often I notice that moving from one to another that a lot of tabs (most recent) are not synced. Everything is fine if I manually sync but I don't want to have to do that every time I open a new web address. It says it will sync automatically when I close the browser and I have it set to restore previous sessions so I know the browser is keeping the tab information but sync does not work that way. Am I expecting too much or is this not the way its supposed to work? It honestly feels like the auto sync works to some extent but its only updating/syncing maybe once an hour while I browse. This issue is not not device specific. They all seem to have very slow or bugged sync use where the most recent tabs are not synced unless they have been open for a very long time.

What are the events that trigger a sync if any and/or can I manually set the frequency at which it auto syncs? I really sucks when I leave a page open at the office for 10 minutes shut down and go home and its not synced. None of these devices have any internet connection issues and everything else seems to work just fine. I am also running the latest as of Friday version of Firefox on all my devices. This has been an issue for me for years. I was finally annoyed enough to look for a solution and found none. So here we are. Any help is appreciated!

Problem began with not being able to open a new tab. I updated to FF 78.0.2.

Now I still cannot open a new tab and my tabs are superimposed on my bookmark folders. Clicking on that menu bar opens a folder, not a tab. FF is unusable.

Also, the three coloured buttons, appear down on the webpage rather than in the menu bar. In order to get them out of there, I have to create a title bar that holds only them and the title of the page I'm on which seems a waste of space. Can I get them on the bar next to the search box?

Image attached.

Thanks for any help. Greatly appreciated.
