MacOS FF dev edition 102 When I roll my mouse over a link, in pops up the URL in the bottom left (i.e. status bar as safari calls it) but there's no indication of if the link will show in the current tab or a new tab. in safari, the end of the URL states "in new tab" if that's the case.

FF 78.0.1 Can't get tabs on bottom to work - despite fact that .css file is working on another computer

Hi all, I just got a new laptop and am trying to get FF the way I like it. This new laptop is W10, and the FF version is 78.0.1.

My old laptop (W7) also has FF 78.0.1.

I created a Chrome folder and a userChrome.css file in my new computer. I copied and pasted the "tabs on bottom" code I have been using on my W7 computer into the new file on my new computer and it is not working.

I have looked all over the web for several hours now and have tried several different versions of the code, tried turning the "legacy toolkit" line (in about:config) on and off and nothing has worked. I also can't find any information on why this code would work in W7 but not W10.

Does anyone have any thoughts?

I have the preference turned on to warn me when quitting the browser with open tabs. However, Firefox asks me if I'm sure I want to quite and close tabs for every tab that I have open (up to about 10, and then it just quits).

If I have many windows open in Firefox, is there a way to sort them in the windows pull-down menu. Right now they aren't sorted alphabetically or anything. Wondering if I can grab them to re-arrange or if I'm just stuck with the random order they are in.

Thanks

Not sure if it matters but using Firefox 81.0 on a Mac.

Recently I've been experiencing a weird bug when hovering over tabs (see attached screenshot). This started not too long ago, maybe a month or so. It happens randomly and disappears if I relaunch Firefox. Initially I thought that this only occurred when my computer is connected to an external display, I'm using an old MacBook Pro with an integrated Intel graphics chip. So I figured maybe it was struggling with the resolution of my external monitor. But now it happened without it being connected to the monitor. Has someone experienced this?

Dear Sir,

It happen to me recently, when I put on middle button, Firefox sent me directly on new tab just opened. Or I want stay on the main search page(primary tab). I try to do Firefox Reset, Restart with Add-ons disable, Clear startup cache... Nothing. Especially, It happen to me when Firefox account is connected. All my computer do the same. I set up a new Ubuntu and install a new Firefox, but no account connected. I work correctly.

Best Regards. Sri

I have been getting this error lately. Later I noticed it only seems to happend when Firefox is running. literly can't find anything online what so ever. So this is baffeling. I don't believe I have done anything to make it happen. I have had like 1,350 tabs before Firefox had an update (and it fked it up) so it might of been some update. Firefox hasn't been nearly that good sense. Im prob at 150-200 tabs right now and I have never seen this message. Also firefox LOVES ram. I have 16GB and over time it EATS it. like 12gb and when i hit 99% the computer slows down of course and I have to restart. All bc of firefox... see pic

I have used firefox for many years and really like it overall. One real problem is not being able to open new tabs to my home page (or what ever page I define to open). I have contributed to the project several times over the years but I am considering a replacement because of this issue. My hope is you might provide some solution without an addon, which always brings overhead. Please advise. Joe
