Every time I open a new tab or go to a tab that I have open, when I come back after my computer has been asleep and try to search for something or refresh a tab, it will give me an error message. I have to close the tab and search again then it works, sometimes I have to do it 2 or 3 times to get it to work. This just started happening with MacOS Catalina 10.15.7 and FireFox 103.0.2 updates in the last few weeks. I tried restarting my computer and I deleted the Firefox app and reinstalled but nothing helps.

I recently had to reinstall firefox due to a few issues. Before the reinstall, when I opened a new tab it would open as my home page. After I reinstalled it, I was able to set up my homepage URL but there is no option for new tabs to open wth the same page. The only options for new tabs are blank page or the default firefox homepage. This was never an issue before the reinstall.

How do I fix this? Has the option been moved somewhere else?

My job requires me to use Setup in Salesforce, but when I try to open any of the Setup pages, it says it can't load the page and prompts me to open a new window. When I open the new window, it still doesn't display setup, just the homepage. Please help! I'd rather not use Chrome for this.

After the last update my Tab Heading text, actually all text outside of the main body of firefox got much smaller. Why does this constantly keep happening? Anyway how do I fix this and I don't mean using Zoom. I've already use Windows display to make things bigger but it did not affect the above text.

Hi,

I have a problem connected with shortcuts on tabs in Mozilla Firefox. When I click a tab with right mouse click then I can for example close tab by just clicking W, or I can pin a tab using P. And it works great on Windows 10. But on my Macbook clicking buttons on keyboard does not do the required action, it just kind of hovers over the option i chose. I mean, when you look on the attached image you can see that for example in "New Tab" letter "w" in underscored (so I can click "w" and then the tab closes). Is there an easy fix for that?

Thanks

Same as question 1337885, which was marked "solved", despite never being solved. (Solved for a few months is not solved!)

Does every user seriously have to go through the rigmarole of manually editing a CSS file in order to have a usable UI? (as per https://ourtechroom.com/tech/get-back-old-tab-design-firefox/, for example)

Multi-account containers, multiple gmail accounts - signing out issue

I'm trying to keep my work gmail and personal gmail in separate containers. I've assigned mail.google.com and accounts.google.com to my Work container, and it works fine in that container.

When I try to sign IN to my personal gmail in a personal tab, it still works fine if I select "Would you still like to open in this current Container?" -> "Open in container". But when I sign OUT, I get the same prompt multiple times and each opening a new tab. I believe this is because gmail does some redirecting during the sign-out process. If I don't go through all these container prompts, I don't get signed out.

I'm probably missing something obvious, but how exactly do I achieve different gmail accounts in different containers if they all use the same domain?

Cheers!

When I click on a LINK or if I right click on a LINK a NEW Window opens with the opened NEW Tab. Happens about 99% of the time.

I am running Apple OS High Sierra, 10.13.6 on an older iMac Mid 2011. My Preferences have always been set, or checked, General_Tabs "Open links in Tabs instead of NEW Window."

The result is a Firefox screen full of Single Windows with Single Tabs. Some Windows I may continue to add Tabs to but most of the time I copy the link from the NEW Window and paste the link on the older Window. If I am in a hurry the result will be many many Opened NEW Windows with one or two NEW Tabs. See attachments. This has been going on for at least 6 months now.

Note your checkbox titled "Email me when someone answers the thread" does not work but please email me at "[email removed from public]".

Thanks in advance!

I have Firefox running and have several tabs open. I have checked the proper boxes to save and re-open the tabs from the previous close. This works amazingly well; often for vastly extended periods of time, as in months or years. Then I accidentally close the main window holding the desired tabs while having a second window open with some temporary webpage I was using earlier in the day hidden behind another window. Yes, it's almost not too late to save the mistake but it is often late in the evening and I just don't have the time to remember or find the correct steps to restore the lost tabs. Like what just happened to me at the end of my last session. I try and fail, and then try sleeping! Also, if a tab sits for a few sessions without actually being activated by a mouse click, my experience suggests it is lost from history.

Pease for the love of gawd fix this!!!

There are several obvious choices for the programmers to consider. 1.) close the "main" and all other windows open with Firefox. On restarting Firefox open all the previously open windows. 2.) let the user assign or define a master opening page with the desired web pages set as tabs. Then until 100 thousand years have passed always open this page with the defined tabs as set by the user. :-) 3.) do something else even more magical.

Finally, if anyone can update the steps to restore session tabs for version ~102. I've viewed several Q/A on restoring TABS but they seem to no longer apply. I cannot restore from history, so I'll need to go a little deeper into the woods. Thank you so much!
