Locking this thread, please continue here: [/questions/1444052]
I had to delete Firefox on my iPhone because links in emails wouldn't open anymore. Yes, it was set for default.

When I re-installed it, the tabs don't close. I hit the X to make a webpage go away and open a new tab. Hit that X when I'm through. Then close an empty Firefox on my phone.

When I reopen Firefox, I get all these little miniature webpages of the tabs I closed. I don't want them. I closed them because I was through. You guys are wasting my time making me close them again and again ...

Please tell me how to set Firefox on my iPhone so that when I open it I get my homepage with shortcuts I have chosen and nothing else.

Thank you, Roxanne

I recently upgraded to Windows 11 and installed the newest Firefox 111.0. I'm familiar with about:config and all general settings in programs involved.

I used to have any link open in a new tab, but stay focused on the current one. DuckDuckGo search results opened new tabs but stayed on the search results page. I can no longer do that and can't figure out what changed or how to return it to this behavior.

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.

Restore Previous Session

Although I had long ago selected "Open Previous Windows and Tabs" in Start-Up, my windows and tabs were not restored when I inadvertently quit Firefox this morning and restarted. I then went to the three horizontal bar Application Menu > History to look for "restore previous session", but that button was missing.

So I have two questions: 1. Why didn't my selected preference, "open Previous Windows and Tabs " at Start-Up work? Is there a fix? 2. What has happened to my "restore previous session button in the History tab of the Application Menu, upper right of toolbar? Has Firefox deleted the "restore previous session" button? Can I reinstall it in some way?

I'll be grateful for advice. Thank you

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.

So for starters I am fully aware of the "When you open a link, image or media in a new tab, switch to it immediately" setting, it is turned off.

What I want to do is be able to open new tabs from my bookmarks bar without immediately switching to them. Regardless of middle mouse click or right click and open new tab. Considering the mentioned setting is turned off I would assume that would solve the problem but it hasn't. It has however made it so when I'm browsing or looking through search engine results it doesn't open a new tab right away. But when I have a home/new tab open and am opening tabs from my bookmarks bar, it unfortunately switches to the new tab immediately. I have had this working on a previous install but am stumped as how to replicate.

Any help appreciated, thank you!

For a few days now this thing with the tabs is driving me crazy. When I click on some link a new tab opens, then I click on another link another tab opens. Following some instructions I went to about:config where I was asked to look for neww, then change the default from 3 to 1. That solved the issue with opening multiple tabs, but now when in gmail and I click on a link it remains in the same page and I have to keep getting back to gmail to continue reading my emails.

That was not the behavior before. When I clicked on a link in my email I was taking to a new tab. Which was OK. But then lately every time I click on something it keeps opening new tabs. This is so annoying.

What can I do to go back to the settings I had a week or more ago.

This is FRUSTRATING!!!!

Thanks so much for your help on this matter.

when I open a new tab why does it open this website (https://search.rspark.com/?ytm)????

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.

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've been using multi-account containers for a long time. I've always used 'ctrl + shift + # of container' to open new tabs in a specific container. Recently, that feature has stopped working - but only for some containers? I can still open containers 1 and 2 using that shortcut, but my other containers just don't respond.

I've tried deleting the unresponsive containers and creating new ones, but that doesn't fix the problem. They work great otherwise - I can still open them with my mouse. Is there a fix for this?

3 days ago I closed my main Firefox Windowby accident, while other windows were open. To restore, I just used the normal "recently closed windows" option and reopened my windows. Immediatly, all my tabs that were assigned to "Containers" were duplicated, and I lost the "Simple Tab Groups" order. For each tab on a container, a second was created without an assigned container. Fine, i thought, just closed 130 tabs that were unassigned, and moved them to the right Groups again. Next day, i open firefox, same thing. All tabs duplicated (but now on the proper groups). Closed 130 duplicated tabs and moved on. But I can't spend 5 minutes each day doing it! Testing more, I realized that every time I close and reopen Firefox, all the tabs assigned to a Container get a copy. If i close and reopen firefox 10 times, i will get 10 copies of all tabs, with no assigned containers to them, ending up with 1300 unnecessary tabs.

I just cant figure out how to fix it. Any advice?

On some websites (namely, twitter), middle clicking a post opens it in a new tab. However, whenever this happens, the new tab is always focused, is there a way to prevent this from happening?

This does not occur on websites such as Youtube.com, where middle clicking a video opens it in a new tab, but does not focus it. This is the preferred result.

Likewise, when middle clicking a bookmark, the newly created tab is also immediately focused. Is this preventable aswell?

Thank you for your time.

This is the first time, that an update lost all of my tabs. Is there a way to access previous sessions, other than the most recent one? I would like to access a session from last week, and see if I can get my tabs back. I'm very unhappy about this and I've not been able to restore my tabs. The current tabs are place holders, and they do the reflect what I had before the update.

Hello. I have had an issue with new tabs not opening in Firefox for about two days. My browser is updated to the latest version. The best way to describe the issue is like this: every time I boot up the browser, everything will be working fine. Then, within 4-5 minutes, tabs will stop opening. Every time I want to open a new webpage in a new or already existing tab, it will get eternally stuck on the loading stage. However, if I have something like a youtube playlist running in one of the tabs, it will switch from video to video with no problem. If I close the browser and try to open in again, it won't open (although I've already figured out that the latest issue can be solved with an administrator mode). Other browsers are working fine and don't have such issue.

I have tried reloading the browser, reloading the computer, cleaning cache/history/cookies, running the browser without any addons, running the debug mode, reinstalling the browser (twice), running the antivirus check, creating a new firefox profile. Nothing helps. Also, the problem persists in the debug mode - when I open it, the pages load for 3-5 minutes and then the tabs stop opening as well.

Please suggest what can I do to fix this issue.
