I updated to Firefox desktop browser ver. 85.0.1 and also did a refresh. Now I have lost the ability to set the opening of a new tab just to the right of the current/active tab. I can only have a new tab open to the far right of ALL of the tabs open in any given window. How can I set browser to open new tabs just to the right of the current/active tab? Thanks!

I am at very high risk of COVID19 pandemic due to my age and severe health conditions. I depend on technology. My health providers communicate through Whats-app, and I am an amateur of the source. Supposedly it is supported by Firefox. When I attempted to get it, Firefox required permission to introduce extensions in my computer, but I got scared by the consequences of the permissions described there.

 Isn't it possible to get the benefits of Whats-app services without exposing privacy and functions that much?  I will highly appreciate prompt guidance.

Hi All,


Env: Windows 10 (Build 19041.264) Firefox version: 85.0.1 Antivirus: Symantec Endpoint Protection (latest updates as its a corporate laptop)

I have had this issue recently with Firefox (v85.0.1). All was working then suddenly one day the Firefox wont open any pages, it just stays blank. No google, no internal or external website. Tried the Private mode of Firefox and still the same. Cant even open Developer Tools. Cannot go to clear the cache or anything. Basically the Browser just sits blank. Cant click on reload button as its greyed out. Try to go and select 'Options' menu and nothing happens. Try about:config and does not work.

I saw some forums on Firefox forums itself suggesting possible possible malware, so I removed firefox, removed the folders from my user's AppData folder, run the symantec endpoint protection to be sure and no issues were found. Then reboot Windows and re-installed Firefox last week and it started to work. Today, I have hit the same problem again. So not sure whats going on. Anyone has faced something similar? Other browsers like Chrome and Edge are working okay.

Hello, I installed Firefox yesterday on a new install of El Capitan 10.11.6. All went smoothly until today, when I started having Firefox crashing continuously. I didn't personally install any Plug-ins, and I even disabled hardware acceleration on Safe Mode this morning. After a few minutes of normal browsing, Firefox started crashing again, and now it doesn't open at all. I am attaching all of today's submitted and pending crash reports, in case someone can help me. I have no idea what to do!

  • If I have Firefox 85.0 on Mac

when I close window then Firefox asks me You are about to close 222 tabs. Are you sure you want to continue?

or when I quit Firefox then Firefox asks me You are about to close 218 tabs. Tabs in non-private windows will be restored when you restart. Are you sure you want to continue?

Why do I see these messages and why the number of tabs differs?

Yes, I tried to view the crash reports and there's nothing there that is of any use. Because of this problem,I now have to use Chrome when attaching files to emails! I never have a problem with Chrome. I think I have resolved my issue as I'm writing this- I'll just use Chrome for everything BINGO! So tell me FIREFOX, how CAN you help? Anyone? Anyone?

Hi. I have an annoying problem. I have my TV hooked to computer and have 1 tab of firefox on the tv screen and 1 on the computer. My computer is the main screen. The problem is if i close the tab on the computer i cant get a new one up unless i go over to the tv and start that and drag a tab from that window back over to the computer screen. Any way to prevent that? Can i run 2 different applications, one on each screen or can i do so my computer only recognize that one screen is being used when the other one is turned of? Because it also sometimes open new windows of other applications on my tv even if its turned of and pc is set to main screen.

Although Firefox 78.7.1 ESR 64bit does install under Windows 10 Home 64 bit Versions 2004 & 20H2, the application simply refuses to load displaying the Windows 10 rotating blue circle hinting of an underlying problem with Firefox, Task Manager confirms that Firefox is not loaded and hung as an application. Although Mozilla stipulates that Firefox 78 ESR is a Windows 10 compatible application, that compatibility must have ended with Windows 10 version 1909.

I run Windows 10 Home 64bit on a plain vanilla Intel Z170 chipset desktop computer, equipped with 64GB DDR4 2133 memory, AMD Firepro V4900 graphics card & no other exotic or esoteric component hardware .

That very same hardware previously ran Windows 7 Professional SP1 64 bit perfectly & ran Firefox 78.7.0 ESR without any issues.

I have therefore decided to drop the Mozilla ESR releases and go with the current version 85 instead which installs & runs perfectly under Windows 10 Home 64 bit in either version 2004 or 20H2. By the way I did configure Windows 10 Home to use Firefox as my default browser but since Firefox 78.7.1 ESR never managed to load and run properly I could not confirm if Firefox knew it was the default browser.
