I use this addon

Select After Closing Current

But apparently I'm not using it correctly.

When I close a tab, it defaults to the tab on the right, which, to me, IMO, is counter intuitive.

And just as bad, when I restart the browser, it opens to the tab on the right much of the time, instead of the current active tab.

Is there something I can do can do about this?

Apparent duplicate password manager

I use Firefox and ESET Antivirus on Windows 10 I am using the Firefox password manager with a Primary Password. When I open a window to a bank or other sensitive site ESET Antivirus Banking and Payment Protection automatically opens a new Protected window. The password manager then fills in the login details for the site or offers a choice from a listbox if I have more than one login for that site without me having to provide a password for the password manager. Clicking on "View Saved Logins" from the listbox opens the password manager Search Logins window also without me having to enter a Primary Password. I can now view Usernames AND Passwords without having to enter any Primary Password. This appears to be an out of date copy of the passwords in a unprotected file since it is missing a few recently created entries. When using an standard Firefox browser window everything seems to work as expected with the Primary Password being required to activate the Pasword Manager and the recently created entries are present. One other point which may be relevant is that when viewing the same username/password in both the valid and the duplicate versions the window addresses are identical. This suggests to me that the Password Manager keeps the username/password data and a list of that data as separate enties and that what I have is actually one set of data with two seperate lists of the data. This makes me nervous about trying to delete anything from the unprotected list in case I am deleting the original data. This state of affairs may have come about when I was setting up Firefox Sync and inadvertantly Sync-ed Password Manager with Primary Password turned off. I have since turned off Sync but with no effect on th problem. Is there any way of deleting this apparent additional password list? The alternative seems to be to just uninstall Firefox and ESET Antivirus and re-install and hope that all the data is cleared out in the process and the re-import a password file.

Hello, I'd like to disable the new translate prompt in Firefox. While I greatly value Mozilla's commitment to innovation, I've found this new feature to be somewhat disruptive to my user experience.

I speak different languages and therefore use websites in multiple languages and having this prompt appear multiple times is a bit annoying. I can’t imagine being the only user with this issue. It’s very irritating.

I didn't find a way to disable this feature in the settings. Is there another way? I know I can modify it by adding languages that I don't want to have translated but I'd like to disable it entirely. I know this might be a non-issue to some people but I just hate this popup and I don't want to see it again. Thank you very much!

When you open a link from the sidebar while holding ctrl, firefox opens it in a new tab and switches to it immediately; whereas when you click a link from a webpage with ctrl, it does not switch to the new tab (unless you hold shift as well, or check "When you open a link, image or media in a new tab, switch to it immediately" in settings > general > tabs). I would like if firefox does not automatically switch to opened links from the sidebar (history, bookmark, etc.), when I open them with ctrl? (I know I can hold shift to do that, but I was wondering if there might be a preference in about:config to change the reverse this behaviour for sidebars)


Thanks, Ibr.

EDIT: I've solved it by installing Kaspersky's extension. I have been troubled by an issue that every time I perform a search on some websites, the page will first freeze for ~10s, during which I can't click on anything on the page. However firefox itself is not totally freezed, like I can switch tabs without any issues, but if I click on the icons of extensions (such as my adblocker) it won't give me any response. After the freeze the page started to load normally. I have tried disabling all extensions, reinstalling firefox, updating to beta, and disabling security.tls.enable_0rtt_data, but none of these works. Other browsers on my device work normally, including Edge and Chrome. Websites that freeze during a search: Google, Bing, Musescore, Duckduckgo Websites that DO NOT freeze during a search: Github, Youtube, Twitter I have encountered this issue both on 117.0.1 and 118.0.

I have been using the Walgreens web site to manage my many prescriptions without problems. Now, most of the Walgreens web site still works but the two menu options that need to display my personal prescription details fail with the display "Sorry, an unexpected error occurred. Please try again later." I initially thought that a Walgreens update might be in progress so just waited. Walgreens support gave me the same answer that there was probably web site maintenance in progress. After 4 days of the same problem and answer, I ported enough information to login in to Walgreens with the Microsoft Edge browser and access to my prescription information worked without a problem. I believe this problem with Firefox started around the time I updated to 117.0.1 but I might not have this perfectly correct. I was just notified to update to 118.0 and did so. Firefox access still fails and Edge access still works. Thanks for any help you can provide. Windows 10

Since 117(Beta)I have an issue with Firefox refusing to apply the update it downloaded. I've tried searching left and right on the internet for a solution and one does work which is installing the newer version of the browser each time myself. But this is ofcourse not a solution in the long run.

It tries now to apply the update 118b9 to stable version 118 and it did downloaded just fine and asked me if I wanted to close the program to let it update which always worked. I've tried different DNS to see if that could be the problem, tried a clean default profile to see if that helped, I haven't tried uninstalling it and reinstalling it, due to me losing my passwords and what not.

I also tried to run the stable version to see if the issue was still there and it is still there, so me using the beta channel isn't the issue here.

When I have Firefox minimized (with several tabs) and I click on its icon in the taskbar, FF does not immediately open, but little icons for each of the FF tabs show and I have to choose one of the tabs before FF fully opens. This is very annoying. If the program were to fully open, the one tab I was recently using would open and I could continue with my work. Is there any way to make FF fully open when I click on the FF icon in the taskbar? I am using FF 118.0 (64 bit) in Windows 11. Thanks for your help. Jerry

PS: the icon below shows what happens when I am clicking the FF icon and shows the two tabs open in FF.

Every time I update firefox, the same thing happens. In the past you have disregarded my issue.

I have four Gmail accounts. I'll call them A, B, C and D at gmail com.

When I update firefox, it signs me out of all my Gmail accounts. When I laboriously sign back in, I'll start with A. I sign in and get my most recent emails. Then I sign into B. When I click on the inbox, I get A's gmail, not B.s When I sign into C, and click on the inbox, I get A's gmail, not C's. When I sign into D, and click on the inbox, I get A's gmail.

THis happens in both bookmarks as well as normal sign in.

I've complained aobut this before and you have told me I am imagining things. I am not, and it's why I seldom update firefox.

WHY are you doing this, Why have you not fixed it in the several years I've had firefox and HOW DO I GET IT FIXED.
