Hey there, I've had a few tabs pinned over the past few weeks for things that need to be done. However I had two windows open and I closed the one with the pins before the 2nd window. Recently closed windows is empty and restore previous session restored the session from yesterday rather than the one just closed. Is there anything else I can do or are the pins gone? Thanks

when there's an open private window and you close the non private window first , all the tabs are closed and when you open firefox again all tabs are cleared and just a new tab is open

this is not desired behavior I guess and i've lost all the open tabs multiple times this way because sometimes private windows remain left open in another desktop or just minimized (and you shutdown the PC or just close the Firefox and all the tabs are gone!).

is there any settings for this ? if not then this is a bug report I guess

Surely one warning is enough! Any way to change that?

I want each new tab to go the Google search page. Why can't I do this?

As it is, in the 'new tab' settings, there's a grand total of just TWO choices - either Firefox's home page, or a blank page. Seriously, is that it??

Grateful for any assistance...

Hello, I'd like to open url links clicked from any program in a private tab. Firefox is my default browser. Links open in new tab, which is okay. I browse in private mode all of the time, but clicking links opens in normal tab, then it cashes the content, cashes history etc. Most of the stuff (from for example discord) is a one time thing, silly and probably even useless stuff.

Is there a possible way to force windows10 to use "firefox.exe -private" as the default handler to open firefox ? I don't really mind if it opens a new window instead of new tab as long as it remains private.

Thank You for Your time.

How to automatically select (jump to) tab sent (shared) from another device on Firefox Sync account

Hello,

I use Firefox on a few devices, one of them being Mac connected to a projector. When I share tabs (url) from any device to the Mac, it receives it, loads it on a new tab to the right of the active tab, but it doesn't switch to it automatically. The tab shows a blue dot until I manually click on it.

Is there a way to auto switch the tab that was just received?

This is not related to the "When I Open a Link in a New Tab, Switch to it Immediately" option in preferences, which only changes the behavior of links opened on the same machine, but not the ones sent from another device.

I want to achieve this mainly to automatically play YouTube videos on the projector, but also other pages that I would like to see on the big screen without having to reach the mouse on the mac.

I guess this should be supported natively, but looking at the about:config I couldn't find anything obvious. I only wan to use third party extensions as a last option.

Cheers! Airton

Hi, Currently, it is possible to close tab only from line of Tabs on the top of the window. Unfortunately in this view, it is impossible to see the long name of Tab (in case if you have tens of it) and the user should open each Tab before close it. Would you add functionality to close Tabs from the Tabs dropdown list ( just add X at the right side of each line) or add some Tab Manager view (as you have for Bookmarks) with same close Tab function?

Thank you.

Hi,

I'm the sort of user who usually has multiple tabs open all the time. In recent versions of Firefox for Windows (I don't remember at which version this problem started), some of my tabs will "forget" the URL they had loaded when I close the browser, then re-launch it later.

That is, the tab will contain a perfectly valid webpage initially, but after closing Firefox then re-launching, the same tab will come up with a BLANK address bar and a BLANK page. I then have to re-enter the address (or select from history drop-down or bookmarks) to reload the page.

I have no idea why this would be happening, but it can be quite annoying, as I use those websites all the time.
