IMPORTANT NOTE: I already have the Check mark clicked in Settings to "open links in tabs instead of new windows" so please don't suggest that.

I tend to have a lot of tabs open (more than 100) in Firefox. Until it recently updated, no matter how many tabs I had open, if I opened a new tab, it would do so in the same window. Now, after the update, I have about 60 tabs open and anytime I open a new tab from my current window, it will after a few seconds switch to opening a new window, which is very annoying.

Does anyone have any suggestions on how to fix it?

Thank you very much for your help!

I searched this forum but couldn't find an answer. I have "restore last session" turned on, but I'd like Firefox wouldn't reopen my last visited site after I close the browser by closing the last tab. In other words: if I close the browser by a regular means (by clicking the rightmost upper X, or by right-clicking the taskbar and choosing close window) it goes to the last viewed site when I reopen the browser – and that's ok – but when I close the last tab and the browser closes, I don't want to see this site again when I reopen Firefox. Is there a way to achieve this? By the way, this is the standard behavior in Google Chrome.

Hello folks,

How about if you remove that extra step to choose the option of closing other tabs. At the moment we have to right click on the tab, choose "Close Multiple Tabs" and then choose the actual option. Because this option is used quite a lot, I think it would be better to see that option as soon as we right click.

Thanks, Marco

Hi,

I lost all my windows and tabs on the latest firefox upgrade and I am trying to restore the session.

I've done this many times in the pat and I know it is as simple as renaming the old session file and moving it, but I never seem to remember exactly what I need to rename and move! I wish there was a simple tool that did this, as I always seem to waste a lot of time trying to remember and figure it out.

Anyway, I found the previous session in the backup session folder . I renamed it: "sessionstore.jsonlz4" and moved it to the main folder - but this didn't work. Actually, whatever happened it erased the file! Fortunately I still have another version of the file backed up.

What do I need to name this file and where do I need to put it so that Firefox will recognize it as a previous session and allow me to load it?

Thank you for your help.

At several occasions, but not in a reproducible manner, when I open pages' links (or bookmarks toolbar's links) using middle-click button (i.e. using "Open Link in a new tab"), the tab opens up, shows the URL it should load, but seems to stop there and never actually loads the website. Sometimes, the URL won't even show up in the omnibar. When this happens, the "Reload current page" is grayed out, so I need to click the omnibar and hit enter to force the URL to load, or click the original link again. Most of the time, reclicking with middle button on the same link works fine again. I did not see any common pattern regarding which links generate this behavior or not, but I will keep trying to find out.

This behavior does occur even in safe-mode (all addons disabled).

Hello everyone,

So I am having this issue that I have attempted to fix but when I fix one issue it seems to cause another. So I use MacOS with Firefox as the default browser, both of which are running the latest version. I use SwissCows as the search engine and the problem I encountered was that when I would click on one of the search results, it would open the link in a new tab. As one may imagine, this would get confusing quickly. To fix the issue, I went into advanced preferences and adjusted browser.link.open_newwindow and browser.link.open_newwindow.restriction values to 1 and 0 respectively. It fixed that problem, but now I have a new problem. Certain links from third party email app or log ins from extensions will open in the current tab instead of opening in a new tab.

Any advice or is this just something that I am going to have to learn to deal with?

Firefox opened today with its page, rather than "restoring my previous session:. I notice now that in Options-General I cannot select restore previous session because it and "warn when quitting the browser" are greyed out, leaving "always check firefox is your default browser" as the only item I can select. What has happened?

Middle-click to open in new tab is wildly inconsistent, even on the same link on the same site in the same session. I'd say it works about 10% of the time after the recent 78.0.1 update. I verified my mouse's middle-click operation at https://www.onlinemictest.com/mouse-test/, so I know the middle-clicks are registering and the problem is with Firefox.
