A lot of times, I'll have a lot of tabs open while working on a project. This takes up a lot of memory, and when I need to switch what I'm working on, I'd rather not keep the window open to improve performance. However, I'd like to easily reopen the tabs that I had before. I know there is a "previously closed windows" feature, but that only seems to save them for a while and is unreliable; additionally, I don't want to dig through my history to find the sites I was on before. Is there any way to do this?

Hi, I am using FF v80.0.1 on ubuntu 18.04.

I noticed that whenever a tab is loading there is now a static (non-spinning) icon. Previously it was spinning. I want it to spin.

In changelog for 80.0 it says:

> For users with reduced motion settings, we’ve reduced a number of animations such as tab loading to reduce motion for users with migraines and epilepsy.

Is there a way to disable this feature?

PayPal pops up a window, which I want to dock as a tab in the main Firefox window.

How do I do that? The "natural" way was to grab the popped-up window and drag it onto the hamburger menu. A quick search only revealed a preference setting to force pop-ups to be tabs, but that is before-the-fact, whereas I would like an after-the-fact solution.

Thanks in advance.

I would like to restore the warning of closing multiple tabs before closing. I am on Firefox 80.0.1. There is not box under Menu > Options > General tab of "Warn me when closing multiple tabs". When going into about:config and searching browser.tabs.warnonclose the value is true.

I'm not sure where else to look to restore this option.

Can anyone Help? Thanks

Hi,

I synced my tabs from my old laptop to my android device. All the tabs were there in the "synced tabs" folder. I did not open the tabs in my phone thinking they are all safe there (I didn't know about the 7 day sync period, although I restored well within that period).

When the laptop got repaired, I tried to sync back the tabs from the android device. But as soon as sync was done, within few minutes, the synced tabs were gone from both the phone as well as the newly repaired laptop..!! Apparently the sync was again done and overwrite/erased the saved tabs in my android phone. This happened since I did not open any of the tabs in my android device. All of the saved tabs were gone.

I feel, this feature of saving open tabs is a myth. There should be some feature to restore the synced tabs from an older date. Just like a restore point in windows work.

Due to this 'myth', i lost a lot of work that was done over many months.

Before rolling out a feature, thorough testing should have been done. Loopholes like these should have been taken into consideration and patched.

Thanks Aj

Hi. When (re)opening a number of bookmarks, e.g. from MySessions v2020.7.0 or OneTab v1.29, just recently, not before, it opens them in reverse order. Is there a way to adjust/fix/set that list top becomes left most and list bottom right most in the horizontal list of tabs? I am sure it is not those two extensions, since it worked before. Would be great if FF had a feature to reverse all tabs t1, t2, t3...t97, t98, t99 to reverse order t99, t98, t97...t3, t2, t1. How can this be done with existing FF, tools or extensions? Or is there a setting in about:config that would allow correct/reversed (re)opening order? Thank you!
