I left my PC for a looong time (more than a month). Came back, booted Windows and started FF - and only one window reopened, despite when I closed it there was two. And "recent windows" in "history" - grayed out.

A small remark - I use my FF in weirdly advanced mode, I have many tab groups (through addon), and two windows - one with long-run tabs I need, another with temporary ones, which I lost now. There was some important sites/history. How can I restore it back?

(and what has happened to the forum? Why Mozilla buried it's community in such an awful way so it's sooo hard to find? 0_0)

FF92.0, Big Sur. I really just noticed that the scroll bar on the right hand side disappears rather quickly (in just a second or two). Is there some way to make it hang around? Really pretty annoying having to make it show up by manually scrolling with a mouse wheel.

When you search the History sidebar for a query, Firefox lists all URLs that match the query. Yet, there is no date column; nor is there any visible way to view when a certain item on the list was accessed. Is there some option that makes the search results in History more user friendly so as to show dates?

Original question:

> I want the new tabs to open next to the current tab and not at the end of my 644 tabs. Use to open next to the current tab and then I had to reset FF and now I can't get it back the way I had it. What do I need to add or change to get the behavior I want and had?

Hi,

Using FF 91, I'm unable to remove autocomplete entries in the url field. I'm following the instructions from this page:

https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1300485

and the KB entry on which this page is based: http://kb.mozillazine.org/Deleting_autocomplete_entries

On a Windows 10 PC, I've tried using both the Delete key and the Shift+Delete but the entry I'm trying to get rid of keeps coming back. I also removed all cookies associated with this url.

Would greatly appreciate your help.

I run Firefox on my Mac. Recently, the display of internet pages has changed by not showing background fill colors and showing bold borders of table cells. Images show what I see currently versus what displays on other devices (and on Firefox until recently). I cannot find a way to return the display to its previous settings. Thanks for any advice and assistance.

Most times I access a web site with calendars (e.g. when trying to book travel) the calendar(s) that appear show the correct day and date but when I click on the desired date it populates the field with an incorrect date.

For example I will choose Thursday 22 April 2021 from the calendar but when I click on that date to populate the travel date it will show as Thursday 20 April 2021. This problem happens on most of the sites where a pop-up calendar displays and more often than not an incorrect date appears when I exit the calendar.

Hello all, I regularly open up pop up windows to do my job, containing lots of column data. Until recently, the columns would squeeze down as small as they could - depending on data field and font size - meaning the bottom scroll bar was unnecessary. However, in last 1-2 weeks(?) the data columns seem happy to spread themselves out menaing I always have to scroll right to see the last few columns. Is there anything like a 'make the columns fit if they're capable of doing' command/shortcut? Thanks all.
