The tabs I had open were important to me and I went on a deep dive into the history of China and I'd like to reopen all of those tabs even if they are to be made public as I don't know if I can remember to reopen all of them.

Is there a way to find the tabs I had opened???

Any help would be appreciated!

When I want to look for an open tab, even one I just used ten minutes earlier, and open the drop-down menu, I find it's in no order, neither chronological nor alphabetical. This is a ridiculous and time-consuming, cumbersome inconvenience, and I can't believe there's no way to select what kind of order it's to be set for. Hopefully, there is, and I've just not been able to find it.

I've already read two utterly useless help articles, both telling me to click on things that DON'T EXIST! Like a downward arrow, next to the Plus sign on the tabs toolbar... not there. Or the Manage History found at the bottom of the the menu that opens when we click on History, . .. not there! So that was no help, and if new versions removed those things, why aren't the help articles updated to reflect that?

I have headphones that support multi-point Bluetooth , the idea is that the sound in them should switch between the two sources when one of them has sound playing.

This feature works everywhere except the Mozilla browser. After pausing, it's as if the tab won't let go of my headphones, as if to say that the audio is still playing. That's why my headphones aren't switching to the phone until the media tab that was playing the audio is closed, not paused.

Headphones are OK, other programs OK.

One of the latest FF updates broke my workflow. (https://xkcd.com/1172/) I'm using the browser in full-screen mode all the time (13" doesn't provide that much of vertical space), and now it shots down every time I tap ESC — which, as you may imagine, I do a lot. Don't like being that guy, but this _really_ breaks the flow. Could you tell, is it 1) intentional change; 2) and configurable behavior. What can I do to revert this particular thing?

How can we remove the "New Tab" option when right clicking a tab? I find this feature absolutely useless as there's already and "+" tab button to create a new tab. I used to be able to reload tabs easily and quickly by Right-Click tab, Left-Click and the Reload option was selected. NOW, I have to move the mouse down to the Reload option, or press the "R" key on the keyboard. Simple things, yes, but something that is easily annoying if it's added when it's not needed and having to change the way we use the browser. What would of been nicer is that "Pinned" tabs would always be pinned, regardless if that window was the last to be closed or not.

Sometimes when loading a page, and the page is slow to respond, I will see a strange situation: The page is totally blank (the F12 tool does not display page content). The refresh button is gray (disabled), or sometimes although the refresh button enabled, the url textbox is "about:blank", which means I cannot actually reload the page I want to read. I have to re-navigate to the page through the link in the previous link. I'm not sure whether I got across. I hope the issue can be fixed.

Is there a way to save a session or your set of tabs? My "Open previous windows and tabs" is checked on. But occasionally the app will erase the tabs when you've relaunched or quit the app. Such an easy request for Mozilla never to implement into the feature of this web browser.

From searching the forum, I understand that links that do not specify a target window always open in the same tab.

Other than holding the Control key down when left-clicking the link, or right-clicking and having to choose "open in a new tab", is there a way to FORCE all links (in Gmail) to always open in a new tab (in either options or preferences)?

In my about:preferences I have browser. link. open_newwindow parameter set to 3 (which I understand does not help for links that don't specify a target window).

In my settings for Tabs, I have check boxes enabled for Open Links in Tabs Instead of New Windows and also for Switch to New Tab Immediately. Neither works for links that do not specify a target window.

It seems to me (and I may be wrong) that Firefox ALWAYS previously opened ALL my Gmail links in a new tab, regardless of whether they specified a target (or not). So, I'm suspecting I may have inadvertently changed a setting to cause this behavior?

Any thoughts will be greatly appreciated as this current behavior (i. e., clicking a link in an email message overwriting Gmail in the current tab and bringing up the clicked link) is a real nuisance. Thanks.

Please, please, please, stop changing things that were working just fine. Every time you make one of these pointless UI changes it pushes me towards Chrome. I really prefer Firefox and have used it almost exclusively for over a decade. But how am I supposed to be able to use it when I literally can't read the interface? With every update I am sent to google various solutions posted by other users trying to remedy problems caused by the latest update. I shouldn't have to dive into about:config every time the FF developers decide to play with the source code. I shouldn't have to install UI addons to maintain intuitive workflow. I shouldn't have to append userChrome.css with code copy-pasted from some forum. And this is to say nothing of the users that are inexperienced enough or unwilling to make such changes. Most just switch to Chrome. Sure, some of it is personal preference. "Do you like large tabs or small tabs? Do you like square tabs or rounded tabs?" But when I LITERALLY CANT READ THEM, that's not something ANY user should have to google or fix on their end. That is the developers dropping the ball. Fix this. Firefox developers, YOU fix this. Because I am DONE with midnight scrambles to repair what someone else broke.

This morning all of my tabs from the previous Firefox session were lost. When I tried to restore the session, I'm seeing that this option is not available from any of the menus. My preferences haven't changed, so I don't know why the tabs were lost when I closed the session last night, to begin with. I'm running 94.01 on Mac OS Mojave 10.14.6.
