I have several windows open, and some of them have multiple tab groups. Is there an easy way to move these tab groups between the windows? I saw the workaround of making bookmarks of all the tabs in one group, move to the target window and open the bookmarks there.

To be honest I found this one a slow and messy way to do things and hope to find a better solution or raise this as a feature request.

using up-to-date Firefox (26.0 at the time of writing)

Hi everybody.

As already mentioned, i would like to wrap the tab-titles to more lines so i am able to display more information of the title. Unfortunately i cannot find a way to do this except the more or less poor addon "tabtweak". I have tried manipulating the style via userChrome.css but all of my efforts wont have any effect on the length/overflow of the displayed text.

Here is what i have tried so far:

/*@namespace url("http://www.mozilla.org/keymaster/gatekeeper/there.is.only.xul"); /* set default namespace to XUL */

.tabbrowser-tab:not([pinned]) .tab-text {

                               border: !important; 
                               word-wrap: break-word !important;
                               word-break: normal !important; 
                               white-space: wrap !important; 
                               height: 3em !important;
                               overflow-y: visible !important; 
                               overflow-x: visible !important; 
                               overflow: visible !important;
                               text-overflow: visible !important;
                               display: inline-table !important; 
                               max-width: none !important;}

It would be awesome if someone is able to help out here. Soultice

Windows 7, firefox 40.0.3

My computer crashed and thus, firefox did not close properly and lost all of my tabs. Under Menu -> History, the Restore Previous Session is greyed out. Why is this? Shouldn't I be able to restore from there?

I've found replies from "jscher2000" and my sessionstore-backups\previous.js file looks like the one I want to use to restore my tabs. However I do not see how to use this file to restore my tabs.

How do I use previous.js to restore my tabs and tab groups?

Every time I'd open a new tab, my download manager would pop open asking to save an mp3 file. The mp3 file was from a web site that would automatically start playing the music anytime you went to it's home page. <insert long story of chasing numerous ways of clearing cache files and stored settings that didn't work> Yes, a new profile (devoid of any important saved information) worked. But that wasn't a solution, just an avoidance. ... The solution: My new tabs were configured to show my top sites. By sheer luck I happened to notice the source web site of this mp3 file being displayed within my top sites. Clicking the X to remove that site solved the issue.

If I open a new tab and type a url in or select a bookmarked page, or the quick navigation options for recently or frequently visited pages that shows up on opening a new tab, none will never load. The only way i can have multiple tabs work is to google the page i want, right click the link and open in new tab and google the next page i want to view. So for example to listen to some music on youtube and scroll through facebook, i would have to open firefox, search for youtube, open it in a new tab, perform a second search for facebook and open it in a new tab for them to load. The entire time i have been typing this i have been trying to load something from a bookmark and nothing has loaded yet. Using windows 10, firefox says version 56.0b9

This is my manifest file: {

 "description": "Test",
 "permissions": ["tabs"],
 "manifest_version": 2,
 "name": "Test",
 "version": "1.0",
 "background": {
   "scripts": ["background.js"]
 },
    "applications": {
     "gecko": {
        "id": "test@test.com"
     }
  },
  
 "browser_action": {
   "default_icon": {
     "16": "icons/icon.png",
     "32": "icons/icon.png",

"48": "icons/icon.png"

   }
 }

}

For some reason, attempting to use browser.tabs.Tab won't work. It just returns "undefined". It seems that the tabs permission isn't being given to background.js for some reason.

Out of nowhere, a Mozilla Firefox opened in fundal with some weird name like wqkt12essddfg34sdsdgdse24awsd42312.... and I couldn't maximize. After like 20 seconds it disappeared. But when I started up my pc the Mozilla tab appeared again, made everything black and I had to restart windows explorer to regain access to my computer.

I tried to scan with Malwarebytes, Bitdefender, Avast, etc and nothing. I reinstalled my windows after I formatted all my hard drive, and after I installed only google chrome and graphics card driver, the Mozilla tab popped up again. And I don't even installed Mozilla Firefox on my new windows. I don't get it. I posted a picture to see that it looks like an old version of Firefox, not a new one.

57.0.4 Browser crashed, Recently closed tabs and Recently closed windows are gone, blindsided by the updated FF version. I installed a new Mysession manager plugin but that doesn't restore the ones I lost. Where are the old sessions stored and how can I restore them? The browser is not offering that function any longer! Please understand I'm not a developer or programmer and complex solutions don't work for me.

I had 3 windows that I only actually have one window that had about 15 tabs the other two windows opened because of what I was working on. I carefully (or so I thought) closed the 2 windows with only one tab and then closed the window with the 15 tabs. But now of course I am only able to open one window with one tab. Can you help me maybe re-open my window with the 15 tabs? Or should I just kiss that window goodbye?

I've been having this issue recently with whenever I open firefox my search engine is reset to Yahoo, so I decided to remove all my addons and and restart firefox to see if the addons where the cause behind it.

To my surprise FireFox only retored the last window that I closed instead of all the Windows I had open at the time.

Those old windows had some very important tabs that I need for an upcoming project.

I've tried opening FireFox again to look for a potential solution but no such luck, I have the found the old recover.bak file that I think has my old browsing data.

C:/Users/username/AppData/Roaming/Mozilla/Firefox/Profiles/9ds7hi8q.default/sessionstore-backups

I would really appreciate any help anyone could give me here, I've tried following the instructions given to other users with no such luck

When I use Firefox search engine, first tab opens, then I open a second tab, it overrides the first tabs page, I cannot search from it nor can I bounce between tabs. I have to close the second tab but then the first tab is blank. I have to close both and open up the browser again. I am not a google fan and want to migrate away as much as possible. It might be my dated windows so instead of spending hundreds of dollars on a new version, can I take firefox back to the version I had before this stupid new version. Which sounds like people are having a lot of problems with.

This started today, maybe 45 minutes ago. Firefox will continuously open new tabs endlessly every 10-15 seconds. If i go through task manager and directly end the program it immediately starts back up and continues. I also tried resetting firefox and going into safe mode. Nothing works and even now I have to pause typing every 10 seconds to close a window. This is incredibly annoying and if I cant fix it soon will be uninstalling firefox. Can someone help please?

I would like to know, a simple link and not a statement like, 'please refer to'.....

all of the tools mentioned to try and see tab memory usage are not accepted by this build

is there not a memory tool that you use?

I just want something simple..like tab1 is using 30%... etc......

memory addons listed in video can not be installed

You would think given the constant development that this would be a standard tool to get feedback.

I did a complete refresh of firefox this morning, last night it locked up so badly I had to unplug from wall in order to turn off.
