The best example of pinned tabs functionality on web browsers can be seen on what MacOS Safari is doing. Safari maintains pinned tabs across multiple windows and sessions, it also remembers the initial url used when the pin was placed, that means that when you open a new Safari session, the pinned tabs will always display the url you pinned and not the last page you visited on that tab. Firefox pinned tabs lack real world functionality, this point can be proven by seeing how many Firefox extensions for specific sites are on the extension browser. Please add this functionality, it could be one optional preference on the Settings page.

Hi

Trying to make sync work the way I want. Initial question:

I've synced tabs between Windows desktop and Android. Now I would like to bookmark all those tabs in the desktop browser, without opening them first. I've found out how to view them in the side bar, but I see no option to bookmark all tabs.

It would be nice to have synced Tabs in the Library window and Options panel.

Problem I had two versions of Firefox open. Window "A" (my primary window) had many open tabs. Window "B" had only three tabs open. Like a knucklehead I accidentally closed the wrong window, "A". Upon restarting only the "B" version was there.

Possible Solution Two days ago I cloned my "C" drive as a backup. Although the Profile folder on the backup will only have 90+% of the tabs - I can gratefully live with that. I just need to know what files to copy over from the backup drive Profile folder to the messed up drive's Profile folder. I am hoping it will be that easy and I can copy the tab files and not the entire Profile folder. Thanks.

I have a large number of tabs open. I have tried closing a lot of them but whenever Firefox restarts, it reopens ALL the old tabs, including the ones which I closed individually during the previous session, ie it ognores the fact that I specifically closed some of the in the previous session. I need to reduce the number of tabs substantially but Firefox is preventing this. I am NOT a technical expert. Thanks to anyone who can help.

Mozilla makes it so difficult to use its features- for example I find nothing that says Restore Previous Session. I went to the stuck of three lines at the top right and went to hisotry, click on recently closed window and absolutely nothing came back.

Mozilla people lies too much and cares nothing about good communications, awesome instructions  and technical support.

Prevent Firefox from opening external link in current tab

Hello,

Firefox is currently opening external link in the current tab, without any possibility to go back. For example, whenever I follow a link from a program (e.g. a pdf reader), when I press F1 in LibreOffice etc., the page being opened in Firefox will replace the current tab (and the history for that tab will be disabled).

'This is a problem for several reasons': 1. One can't go back to the current since it's gone from the "go back one page". 2. If I am doing something in the tab, everything will automatically disappear, without any warning. 3. Since the current page will disappear completely, it can be tricky to know what tab content is being "overwritten".

Thank you in advance! Regards

Why isn't the Restore Previous Session choice available on the Open Application Menu? Even if I click the checkbox under Tools/Settings/General/Startup: Open Previous Windows and Tabs (version 107/windows 11), I am presented with a tabula rasa screen on reopening my Firefox session. Your help/support says to go to the Open Application Menu/History and choose Restore Previous Session (located between Recently Closed Windows and Clear Recent History). However the Restore Previous Session is not listed. Not sure why Firefox can't get this right since you have had it right for the almost 20 years I have chosen it as my default browser.

I'm pretty sure that until recently i had no problem using ctrl-click to get the right-click menu on a link, clicking on Open Link in New Tab, and having that link open in a new tab.

Now I get nothing. I did recently 106.0.3 (64-bit) on my mac.

None of the solutions to similar problems that i've found on Support seem to help. What's up?
