Old closed tab randomly reloads - multiple devices

Many, many months ago I did mundane search and opened a webpage in a new tab, as per normal. Nothing particularly stood out about this search and when I was done, I closed the tab. I didn't do anything different. I didn't save a bookmark or change any settings. I just looked at the webpage and then closed it when I was done. (It was a web article on some random tech site, if that matters)

Anyway, now whenever I open up my Firefox browser there seems to be a random chance that this previously closed tab will open on loading. And when I say random chance, I'd say about 1 in 5 chance. It doesn't always happen.

Just to be clear: I do have the browser set to restore my previous sessions. This is a setting I want to have on. However, this tab was not part of my previous session as I specifically closed it - and continue to close it every time it opens itself. Also, my Homepage is set to default and nothing else.

Not only that, but there are two very peculiar details about this case that make it very, very strange: 1. When I originally opened (and closed) this tab, I was using normal Firefox. I have since switched to Firefox Nightly. All of my other tabs that I like to keep open had to be searched and loaded up manually, one by one, after I did the switch. This one tab, however, is just showing up on its own. 2. Opening Firefox on a separate devices (second desktop PC, laptop, android phone) will occasionally load up this tab.

I do have my browsers set to sync, which is what I'm assuming is why it's following me around. But I don't understand why nor how to stop this specific page from loading after I keep closing it time and time again. Plus, why aren't any of my old tabs from my old Firefox browser following this same behavior after moving to Nightly? - I've closed hundreds, if not thousands of tabs. Why is this one following me around?

Since the last Firefox update to 108.01, or that is when I first noticed this problem. When I have many tabs open right to the end of the tab bar the new tab + disappears off the screen. The more tabs I open it does correctly automatically reduce the width of the tabs but pushes the + tab off to the right, this never use to happen before it always kept the new tab + in view.

Hello, sadly I have the problem since a few days that firefox opens a new tab with the same error every time I google something or click on a new page/subpage etc. The URL on the error page is all the time "https://0.0.0.1/" mentention of course a page loading error. I don't know why firefox keeps oppening new tabs with this URL. I allrady tried to use the clearing function and even reinstalled the software, nothing worked. Maybe somebody can help me solving this problem, it is very annoying to have multiple new error-tabs per minute in a normal work flow. Thanks and best regards, Thomas

Hello! My Firefox version is 91.11.0esr Several months ago Firefox starts behave this way. It's much more convenient when speaker button always appears on tab. It's absolutely incomprehensible why developers did it with Firefox. Who likes to waste time searching for noisy tab. I wish it work like before.

Just like the Android version of Firefox does! It opens the new tab(s), but load each tab at visit!

Desktop Firefox also does this at [History / Restore Previous Session]. All the previously opened tabs are opened again, but each of them only loads at visit.

This is I would like to have as default behaviour with newly opened tab(s) in Firefox. > Tab opens. > It hasn't loaded yet! > At visit it loads the content.

PS: I tried, but didn't work: > about:config _ browser.sessionstore.restore*demand (switch) > Addon _ LoadTabOnSelect 3 (But it worked weirdly.)

Your previous reply message to me is below at the bottom of this reply. My answers are inside your reply.

I tried to reply to you yesterday from the help site on FF, however on the last word, I misspelled that word, I attempted to correct it, it should have been easy enough because it was the last letter on the last word, I put my curser at the end of the last word and as I tried remove that letter, BOOM, the whole message disappeared. Hopefully it was sent but I haven’t heard a response yet so I’m assuming the message went into lala-land. Are you saying that your previous session isn't restored [Yes, none of the tabs were restored. Also, under the history tab, the “recently closed tabs” were grayed out so that menu command was useless.] or are you looking for the menu command to restore the previous session? Also, every time I reboot FF or my Computer, none of the previous tabs are restored. If the former, are you exiting before restarting your computer or shutting down? You should do that and you should use the exit command (either in the menu or the keyboard shortcut). I suggest you also allow enough time for the process to finish before restarting the computer or shutting down. Can you help me with this? What is the fix for this issue?

I am using FF 115.7.0 on a Mac. I normally use tabs but when I need a new window, it opens with every one of my bookmarks in a tab. I can open a subject in a new window from an article in a tab from a different window but I just can't open an empty window without getting all of my bookmarks opened in (many!) separate tabs.

Thanks for any help.

Please, I want my tab's x back no matter how many tabs are open. My monitor is very large so I can see. Looking for close tab after right click, is a problem for my eyes as I have to get up close to my monitor and then it takes too long to find the close tab. Just a few hours ago, the x disappeared, even on the tab I had open, and I didn't have as many tabs open as I usually do.

I did some looking and i found that you had changed it a long time ago but it only just affected me now (my (computer is not even a year old), even my laptop had the x on each tab (although I haven't used it in two weeks). I rely on the tab's x, especially the tab that I have open, no matter how many tabs, there is no x anymore at all, unless i have fewer than seven tabs open on my 27 monitor. I even changed the minimum tab size without result. No x on the tabs, no x on the tab I'm using. Thank you for your time spent reading this old woman's rant, i'm sorry for the bother. I would appreciate your help. Thank you, v.l.duff ginduf@gmail.com

It's suppose to open a blank page. I set my preferences to open a blank page for a new tab. This never happened before until I updated my Firefox. I am using 110.0 Firefox browser on my Mac. I am running Mac OS 10.15.7

Never had this problem before and I did a clean install.

I am developing an extension that will fix YouTube spacebar issue (after recent YouTube update after Alt Tabbing from other window, spacebar is not working to Pause/Play videos).

The problem is that my extension is not working anywhere except on https://www.mozilla.org.

I've already added "*://*.youtube.com/*" to "host_permissions" in my manifest.json file and it's displayed as "Can always read and change data on this site" on YouTube, but it does nothing. On https://www.mozilla.org my extension is activating properly (writes test message in console).

I added my extension on "about:debugging". Can it be related with that? Appreciate any help!

I know this is most likely a feature, but it's been annoying the hell out of me since I switched from Chrome and I don't know how to disable it. I have looked at multiple (~3) Reddit threads (two of which were archived) which gave me a total of 0 answers, I've looked at other forums, and I've found, get this, nothing. It's so annoying when for whatever reason, my music gets paused and then it's not at the volume I need it to be at, so I turn it up and then almost immediately turn it back down because of the audio fading. All I want is to know how to disable this, PLEASE.

Image interactibility has changed since the last Firefox update.

It used to be I could do a Google search and I could click on the images on the main search result page (under the 'All' section, not the 'Images' section) and they would open in a new tab immediately.

Since the update when I click on an image it docks the image to the right...when I need it to open in a new tab.

If I can't get this fixed I will be going back to a previous version.

Help!
