Problem began with not being able to open a new tab. I updated to FF 78.0.2.

Now I still cannot open a new tab and my tabs are superimposed on my bookmark folders. Clicking on that menu bar opens a folder, not a tab. FF is unusable.

Also, the three coloured buttons, appear down on the webpage rather than in the menu bar. In order to get them out of there, I have to create a title bar that holds only them and the title of the page I'm on which seems a waste of space. Can I get them on the bar next to the search box?

Image attached.

Thanks for any help. Greatly appreciated.

When I start Firefox only the focused page is loaded. All other pages are blank as I set 'Clear history when Firefox closes' to 'automatically clear' the cache on exit. If I click on another tab it refreshs it. How do I to get every page to load on startup? Firefox treats pinned and normal tabs differently. On restart I have to 'Select all Tabs', then 'Reload page' every time. It used to load all pages automatically but now it doesn't. | Is there an extension? Or an About:Config entry I can change or insert? Private browsing is not used. Pages are open in tabs not windows. I have 20+ tabs open all the time. About half are pinned. Side Note - I would be happy to see the "Reload All Tabs" menu option reinstated.

Ever since IE changed to tabs on top firefox coders followed like mindless automatons without any regard to/for Mozilla community and users. We are sick and tired of being ignored. We want/need tabs bellow address bar. Now, tell us how to simply get tabs below address bar or tell the coders to provide us with the option. And, we don’t care about any excuses as previously provided or outright ignored by them.

In the last few week I have had trouble with "right clicking and open in new tab". I don't know if it's because of the latest update or not. Sometimes, not always, when I try to right click on a link or a button and open in new tab, it looks like it's going to open, the new tab appears there for a few seconds, and then it disappears. I have tried "control" left click and I can sometimes get that to work if I do it several times rapidly. I first noticed it in Facebook, but now it can happen on almost any website. I had version 80.? when I first noticed it, I now have 81.0 and I still does it. Any ideas? It's not that some website don't allow right clicking for copyright reasons, I an familiar with that, this is different in that it attempts to open a new tab and within a few seconds it disappears. Before you ask, I have checked for virus's and malware.

Hi, I've been having this issue for a few months now, and it can get really annoying. Like the title says, the right side of Firefox is cut off a little for me, both in fullscreen and windowed fullscreen. This problem occurs on all websites, and is only fixed when I restart in safe mode, though I don't think any extensions that I have could be causing this problem. Any ideas would be much appreciated.

Thanks!

Hi,

I had a window open with many tabs. I opened a new window with 1 tab. I accidentally closed the window with the many tabs, then closed the one with 1 tab. Now, I would like to restaure the window with many tabs but since it wasn't the last closed, Firefox restaure the one with 1 tab. How can I do since I'm trying to restaure a window that wasn't the last closed?... I have red: "If you close each window one by one, only the tabs of the last closed window will be reopened the next time you start Firefox".... So I'm afraid it's not possible but never know ?...

Thanks! Cyril

Default position for new child tabs

I used to be that if you clicked a link and "Opened in a New Tab" that this child tab would appear to the right of all existing tabs.

In the later versions of FF, these child tabs are inserted directly after the parent tab that created them.

This may make logic sense to some people but, maybe because I'm dyslexic, position is critical and all my existing tabs beyond this child have just been moved up one place, which I find very confusing.

I often Open a New Tab for temporary tangents, so I don't lose my place in an existing page, but this means that my primary tabs are tromboning right and left as I open/close.

Is there a parameter that I can change in Config to set the behaviour back to adding new tabs to the end of the list?
