When I pin a tab, then quit Firefox, the pin is lost forever.

Most other tickets I've seen are about restoring them, but I'm looking for some setting to change so that I can pin tabs.

My history is set to: Remember My setting to delete all cookies and site data on close is unchecked

Any ideas?


Thanks a million!

I just reinstalled my operative system, and with that my Firefox settings got reset. I know there is an entry in about:config to prevent ads from opening new tabs and pop ups without authorization, even from legit websites like the login pop-up windows when doing a sign in in Google, in those cases to allow the windows it's needed to click on the lock icon next to the URL bar and allow it from there. The problem is that I don't remember the name of that setting and I have spend an hour looking for it on Google.

I've recently made the switch to Firefox coming from Opera, and there's a few behaviours I'm missing / haven't figured out how to set up to match what I'm used to. Could someone point me in the right direction?

1) When I click an external link (e.g. in Discord) to open in browser (Firefox is now default), it opens the link but it overrides the currently selected tab rather than opening a new tab.

2) Following on from that, clicking the link also doesn't make Firefox the active window. Previously if I opened a new link from elsewhere, the other browser would come to the front. Can Firefox do that too?

I currently have it set so that opening a link in a new tab doesn't switch to that tab. Which is behaviour I want (if I'm doing that in Firefox itself).

Will there be a generic icon for websites without favicons?

I don't know if this is a problem with my installation, but websites without specific favicons (e.g.: https://forum.librivox.org/index.php?sid=fd7dca1ba59c207dd25121695677d565) don't have a placeholder icon in the tab. Is this intended behavior? There's the globe icon for bookmarks without favicons, couldn't that be used if a website doesn't have one? I think that would contribute to some visual consistency :)

I have looked across various support forums for information on this, I only see posts regarding favicons and bookmarks, not the tab itself, so apologies if this has been asked and answered already!

When i have like 50+ tabs pinned then firefox breaks and we cannot scroll tabs anymore. Of course closing tabs doesn;t work with Ctrl+W, but then we need some different shortcut for closing pinned tabs (like for example Ctrl + Shift + W) or just you fixing this bug ;) I attach 2 screenshots that show what happens with Firefox when having too many tabs pinned. I can't navigate through tabs anymore.

I am sending tabs from Firefox mobile to Firefox desktop (Arch Linux) (on a regular base for years). All worked fine. After a new install two weeks ago the Firefox desktop receives the tabs and opens them as supposed. But after a day or three when I open Firefox desktop it opens all previous tabs again together with the newly sent tabs. I deleted the Firefox profile and installed from Firefox sync but the problem occurs. I deleted all devices in sync and added my 2 devices (desktop and mobile) again but it didn't work. Does anybody have a similar problem (and a solution)?

For a few days now this thing with the tabs is driving me crazy. When I click on some link a new tab opens, then I click on another link another tab opens. Following some instructions I went to about:config where I was asked to look for neww, then change the default from 3 to 1. That solved the issue with opening multiple tabs, but now when in gmail and I click on a link it remains in the same page and I have to keep getting back to gmail to continue reading my emails.

That was not the behavior before. When I clicked on a link in my email I was taking to a new tab. Which was OK. But then lately every time I click on something it keeps opening new tabs. This is so annoying.

What can I do to go back to the settings I had a week or more ago.

This is FRUSTRATING!!!!

Thanks so much for your help on this matter.

So for starters I am fully aware of the "When you open a link, image or media in a new tab, switch to it immediately" setting, it is turned off.

What I want to do is be able to open new tabs from my bookmarks bar without immediately switching to them. Regardless of middle mouse click or right click and open new tab. Considering the mentioned setting is turned off I would assume that would solve the problem but it hasn't. It has however made it so when I'm browsing or looking through search engine results it doesn't open a new tab right away. But when I have a home/new tab open and am opening tabs from my bookmarks bar, it unfortunately switches to the new tab immediately. I have had this working on a previous install but am stumped as how to replicate.

Any help appreciated, thank you!

I have two computers, one for personal use and one for business. Somehow the tabs between the two computers are being shared and I cannot disable it. Both browsers are signed into different Firefox accounts, Sync is turned off on both, and there are no connected devices. Yet despite that, when I go to one computer, it pops up a Firefox icon (see attached) in the taskbar that lets me open the tab open on the other computer. This is incredibly frustrating and Firefox should not automatically share this information, and should not make it so difficult to disable.

I had a number of tabs open today (~40). Because Firefox started to malfunction, I had to restart Firefox. It happened to me before and I knew that I can restore my previous session so I safely closed the tabs.

When I restarted it, I opened a tab and then I tried to open the Application Menu, but accidentally closed the window. Now, when I've re-opened Firefox and attempted to restore the previous session only that last tab appeared.

Is it possible to recover the pre-previous session? I use Ubuntu 18.04. Where is this information located? and how can I retrieve it?
