Will try to explain. Not talking about the website tabs as favorites in the top row - but about module tabs to show up in the top row in a program. When I open a program (work related) - there are modules in the program such as "Participants," "Financial," "Vendors," and so on. When I click on a module, it opens up in a new browser. Problem is, when it's in a new browser, it doesn't identify participant/case I'm working on. I want the "Participants" module tab to appear in the same page in the top row so I can see which case it is - and be able to switch tabs on the same page (like you would with different websites on Firefox homepage). I tried to paste a snapshot of it here but didn't allow me to. In Chrome - I can click on a module/link, then on the top header right click my mouse to select the option to "Show as Tab" - then the tab will appear on the same page and I can easily identify which participant/case I'm working on. I prefer to use Firefox - however it doesn't offer that option to show as tab. I was using Internet Explorer, IE - but the program is no longer supported by IE. Is there a way in Firefox? Thank you.

I'm lost, I tried countless of different "solutions" on the web to restore the previous session before I updated my old Firefox. When I update from version 54 to the newest one, all my open tabs are gone, or FF opens tabs from YEARS ago. I have a full backup of the original V54 instalation including the Mozilla folders in LocalLow, Local and Roaming. So swapping files is no problem.

I badly need all the open tabs again for productivity reasons alone. I hope someone knows how to restore the previous session before the upgrade.

As a tab addict who likes to pick up where I left off, I have Firefox set to open previous tabs on start up. Today, I opened Firefox to a single new tab. None of the dozen or so tabs I had open yesterday appeared and the theme shown as Enabled (a leaf pattern) is not what's displayed (plain blue coloring).

I looked at about:profiles to check whether this was a different profile and if I could revert to one that contained yesterday's session. No luck, the few listed did not contain my previous tab session and settings. Interestingly, in my D:\Users\username\AppData\Local\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles there was a profile that didn't appear on the about:profiles page but it also did not contain my most recent session.

When I look at the folder of the current active profile, there are no files in its root and the subfolders within the profile contain very few files.

Quite simply, it appears as if the profile I was using was mostly deleted. (see screenshot) Given that I closed the browser and then shut down the computer normally last night, how does this happen?? Is there any way to get my previous tabs back?

I should also note that there's no "Restore previous session" menu option in my browser as shown in https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/restore-previous-session. My Firefox is version 80.

(My apologies if this query is under the wrong topic heading. Mods, please move accordingly.)

Hard to hit the "right spot" on the X icon when closing a tab - only a very small area gets a response

When I try to close a tab, if I place my cursor over the X icon and click, nothing happens. If I carefully hover the tip of my cursor over the very bottom of the (invisible) box around the X, the box will turn darker grey and I can finally click and close the tab. I'd estimate the grey box around the X is 1cmx1cm, but only the bottom 1-2mm elicit a response.

I have restarted Firefox and my computer. My browser version is up to date. I am not using any extensions. I am on a 2009 Mac running Yosemite.

I'm using Firefox as my browser, on a desktop Mac (OS). Please write out any possible solutions to my problem with as much detail as possible, step-by-step. (I'm recovering from a concussion, and at least for now, I need instructions to be very detailed. Thanks.)

I did a Refresh. (I've never done a Refresh before.) In the past, my tabs would be automatically restored if I quit and then re-opened Firefox. I assumed this would happen after the Refresh. My tabs did not get restored, and Restore Previous Session (in History) is greyed out. Same when I click on the button that looks like three horizontal lines, at the top right-hand corner of the menu bar. When I went to the Restore Tabs page that comes up when you re-open Firefox, the box that usually shows the tabs from the previous session was empty.

Please can someone help me get back the tabs I had just prior to doing the Refresh.

Hello,

I urgently ;-) need a shortcut to switch between open browser windows. It seems to be one of the basic ones, but is nowhere to be found.

Solutions using Tilde do not work for me becuse it's not available on my Apple keyboard.

Why not use Command +< or Command + > respectively, like many other apps do?

And why not at least let me configure that in a simple fashion myself???

Thanks for any solution!

Hi,

Google Chrome have just dropped an update featuring Tab groups. Holy smokes it is good.

As somebody who frequently has over a thousand tabs open, this is such an awesome feature. Any chance of Firefox getting it?

When I start trying to open multiple tabs at once Firefox autofills the address bar with the address I was at when I hit CTRL+T. I don't know if I'm just doing it too fast, or what is going on but it's really frustrating.

For example, I'll go to reddit, while reddit is loading hit the hotkeys for a new tab, and it'll have reddit autofilled when I want it to be blank because I want to go to twitter or something. It's pretty frustrating and I wind up opening more tabs than I'd like and closing the incorrect ones. Would appreciate some assistance please.
