The pinned shortcuts on my newtab page have all disappeared once again. I've gone to about:config > browser.newtabpage.pinned and my shortcuts are all listed. But only blank boxes show up on the page. It will not accept a new entry when I try to enter one. It goes back to the blank white box. Why does this keep happening? Can anyone give me a Firefox for Dummies way to fix this?? Thanks!

Today when I close many tabs using control w firefox seems to randomly jump around when choosing which next tab to close

I wish to have firefox always close the adjacent tab to the tab I just closed

This should be the default behavior ... I do not see any setting for this ... is there an addon to do this ?

I am using the latest firefox on ubuntu

      • UPDATE*** below answer for setting `browser.tabs.selectOwnerOnClose` has no impact on this

I am on a brand-new machine and having trouble setting up the Firefox browser.

When I click on a link it opens in a new window with all the tabs ready opened.

How do I open a tab without opening a new window?

Also, how do I set Yahoo.com as my default search engine?

Thank you for sharing your wisdom

Got up this morning and FF said all my tabs were crashed - GAH! Could not open ANY new tabs, not even a blank tab, without getting this message. Clicking on restore tabs did nothing. Closing & opening FF did nothing. Cleared startup cache & uninstalled ublock origin (the only extension I had) but that did nothing. Refresh firefox did nothing (except lose some of my preferences). Went to about:crashes and all it says is "No crash reports have been submitted." Every other suggestion I found online was beyond my comprehension. FF DOES work in troubleshooting mode only, but I lose some important functions in that mode. I've been using FF almost since it was born and have NEVER encountered a problem like this before. I hope someone can help!

Hello Good People,

I installed Firefox a few days ago and it was looking good. I don't like that icon in the top-left hand so I right clicked it and removed it. All was good. However, today there is a blank black space in the corner as if the icon was back (but without an actual icon). It's only a small thing but it bugs me. I want the tabs to be shifted all the way over to the left like they have been up to today. It's triggering my OCD. Anyway, any advice appreciated.

Best Wishes

I have many tabs open at the same time and I'm noticing tabs from Urban Dictionary in particular are automatically changing to suspicious sites, quite a few porn sites in fact.

Is this something Urban Dictionary is doing to direct viewers to sponsors or is there a bug in my FF browser?

Yesterday, I was invited to update Firefox on my desk-top PC running Windows 10. When I did, all of my open tabs were absent from the new version. Luckily the old version was still open with my open tabs. Today, my old version opened again with the open tabs and a window that said the automatic updated didn't happen. It invited me to update again. I clicked on "More information" and it went to an error message. My question is, how do I save all of my open tabs when I update Firefox?

Why am I losing my open tabs. I have it set to open where left off.

This has happened about 3 times recently. It is a huge inconvenience as I have multiple windows with a lot of tabs open in each. It is too active and difficult to save them all as bookmarks. I thought if you were signed into your account, that would automatically remember what your open tabs were.

I think it has something to do with clearing history. A couple times that function seemed to stall. Like this time. This doesn't happen all the time though. I can clear data & history, have all my tabs sitting there, and they are restored when I go back in, as usual.

I am going to have to change browsers if this continues because I need all my working tabs, many which I will not even remember, to get back to manually.

I just turned sync on (was reluctant to do that as I don't know all the specifics how it works). My mobile phone open tabs did not wipe out as I feared probably because looks like I'm not signed in there. Might have lost everything there also. But does having sync turned on keep things stored in your account so it can't get wiped out?

Is there an add-on that enables when clicked links are opened in new tabs ---> THAT TAB's volume ALREADY muted ?

Here the scenario that presents the issue that I'm curious about.

I go to a lot of sports websites to check game times, scores, box score statistics, etc.

While at pages listing the scores of multiple games that are still being played (in-progress), there's an option to click a link on any individual game to see per-player stats about their performance so far in that game, etc.

So, when I click a right-click a link and select to open it in a new tab, fine, it opens okay, no problem there.

However, within the page of the newly opened tab, there is usually a right sidebar column, that is mostly a series of ads and links to related content, yet, there's always at least 1 (and sometimes 2-3,etc) that have embedded video highlight reels in players embedded directly into the page that automatically begin playing when the page/tab loads. It may take a few seconds, maybe up to 30 seconds, but it will eventually start. And, as you probably can guess, yes, of course you have to sit thru a 30-second ad before the real content.

These are little sidebar embedded video players on my 27" 4K screen are no more than a few square inches, with tiny little control buttons, such as pause, volume sliders, etc, the usual array, and a "[+]" expand-icon to expand the player size to full-screen.

So therein lies the nuisance. And it is really annoying. When the tab opens, that little highlights-reel video player is off to the side, very small, barely noticeable to begin with, and at first page load, usually SILENT. But that doesn't mean it's muted, it's not- it just hasn't fully loaded yet and self-started began playing YET.

And then when it finally does, the volume is usually at a default setting of MAXIMUM. And it is LOUD.

It's a pain in the neck that anytime I click a link at any of these kinds of sites by major sports networks that over time you learn to expect that the page is gonna get audio-hijacked whether or not the user is even remotely interested in that content (way over there in that little inky-dinky player on the right), and it just absolutely RUINS the user-experience overall IMHO.

I'm looking for an ADD-ON / EXTENSION that remedies this, ...or-- asking any of you developers who may be reading this to take this post VERY SERIOUSLY. I absolutely can't believe I'm the only user P.O.'d with this horrible "SNAFU" with major sports networks websites. To call it an "inconvenience" is the understatement of the century.

Just to be clear, ad-block has absolutely no effect (ZERO) on this. Cookies ? I'm using Privazer in addition to Firefox's own Privacy & Security settings and built-in cookie cleaning capabilities. And I have used that tandem for years, with remarkably fantastic results, no complaint there, everything works great as far as that is concerned. Except of course the issue of this post/inquiry - this problem doesn't get fixed by clearing cookies or caches, it's apparently loaded & controlled at the server-side, so I'm looking for a way to over-ride that by the client-side by having new tabs open with volume muted as default page-load value (if such a thing is possible).

Also, the above scenario, is my most frequently encountered PERSONALLY, however this issue happens also at quite a number of other website pages where sidebar video content is regularly displayed such as tabloid/ journalism websites, product review websites, and the list goes on and on.....


Getting back to the title of this post ::: "" Is there an add-on that enables when clicked links are opened in new tabs ---> THAT TAB's volume ALREADY muted ? "" .... if there already is an option for this in firefox open new tabs settings please remind me where to find it..... because I am pulling my hair out over this... thanks all.
