Is there some way doing it without an extension? I used Tab Mix Plus but now I don't really see the point of using it because it's the only feature left that I didn't set up using about:config.

I downloaded the update for Firefox 17.0 and installed it with no problems. After completion, I discovered that I could not open additional tabs as with previous versions of Firefox. I tried various methods, including the File pulldown menu, clicking on the tab stop next to an already open website, and using Ctrl+T. Nothing worked. I can open additional windows, but find it much more convenient to use tab stops, and am currently unable to do so using the latest version of Firefox.

It used to be that when I opened a new tab in Firefox (16?), the cursor would go to the URL bar and I could type in any URL i wanted. Now, it disappears and I have to position the cursor in the URL field manually. What happened? I really need the cursor to jump right to the URL field when I open up a new tab.

when addons are updated, FF restarts and the websites of the updated addons open in tabs to let u know those addons were updated and to be able to check their website fa further info (changelog, etc)...

however firefox is now opening addon sites (first only from download helper and now including tab mix plus), even tho those addons werent updated...

i have a screenshot i can send if its possible...

this only happens when firefox first opens, as long as its open, any other instances of firefox open correctly with just a blank tab and no other website tabs...

i downgraded to FF v16 bc i cant get tab mix plus in 17 and i hate how firefox handles tabs, so i will not upgrade until tab mix plus works with v 17...as an aside...i always use the previous version of FF until tab mix plus works with whatever th current version is...

The Tab Groups function seems like a handy feature but to switch between groups I don't want to press alt+shift+e and then click a tab in the right group. I want to have a context menu on right click on Groups icon with list of Groups titles. It will be very useful and convenient.

How to Save particular Tab Group as a Session?

I want to be able to save Tab Group in Panorama as a Session, that is not only URIs but also a History of every Tab in Group and all the rest usually saved session attributes (like Tab Position within Group etc).

  • click the Tab Group button at the Tab Strip
  • right click on a Group
  • select Save Group

then you should have saved session named after this group (plus date, possibly).

There certainly should be such a basic functionality as saving/restoring Tab Groups for later use but I cannot find it in the UI. Perhaps it's just hidden somewhere?

PS

  • and yes, I already (have to) use Session Manager addon (because Adobe Flash player plugin still crashes FF and session restore may be inop);
  • also, I know about 'right click on a tab, 'Bookmark all tabs' feature -- it only saves tabs' URIs and clutters my bookmarks.

I have had Firefox on my Vista OS desktop for some time. When I start Firefox it opens Google as my home page. However, today I was not able to have anything open when typed into the Google search bar. Thinking it might be a Google problem I opened up Internet Explorer and accessed Google and brought up the main search screen. I typed something into the search bar and Google responded as expected. So the problem is not Google's but mine!

What have I done? I do not believe I have changed my settings but others have had access to this computer so I can't say for sure if something has been changed or not. I do not want to un-install/re-install Firefox for fear of losing my bookmarks and pre-set tabs.

Please advise!

Bob

Whenever I click on a tab and drag it to either the left or right in its original window or attempt to drag it so it's own its own browser window, I get the cursor along with the thumbnail of the tab I'm moving, but I can't drop it anywhere. The only way I can get back to functioning is to force-quit Firefox.

We've tried deleting the old Firefox, loaded Firefox 17, restarted, enabled in options, changed the home page, etc. Tried all the usual suspects and still just get a blank page. When I try and go to my bookmarks, the "New Tab" says conecting for a quick second and goes right back to "new tab". We can't go anywhere or see anything other than a blank page.

After the update to FF17 I can no longer move a new tab into the Pin As App section without first pinning the tab. I liked how it worked before, where if you put it to the front or between 2 pinned tabs it would just pin itself and place it where you told it to... Is there an option to restore this? If not, no big deal, more of a minor annoyance really.
