Is there no way to save tabs each time I now close my browser? I don't want to bookmark them as almost all are not to be saved. I used to close my browser and be able to reopen the save tabs when I started my browser the next time, now I can't, it's totally crippled my abilities online and what I am using my browser for and leaving me lost now.

I was just upgraded to Firefox 91.0. Immediately, pdfs only open in browser tab window after update, no matter what my settings say to use. I have tried "Save File", "Always ask", "Use Windows default app", and my usual choice "Use Adobe Acrobat". Makes no difference. The pdf always opens in a browser tab within Firefox. It was working in 90.0.2, which was the previous installed version before the 91.0 update.

Any suggestions as to how I can fix this?

Hi! I'm going nuts. I have Firefox set to NOT remember sessions when I close and re-open. But every time I re-open the (latest) Firefox on my (up to date) Mac, 3 tabs reappear. It doesn't matter how often I delete history or cookies or empty caches. They are not even 3 tabs from the most recent session! They are from a week ago. And no, they are not pinned tabs!

And yes, I have reinstalled Firefox.

Any idea what I should do?

Many thanks!

I have built a new PC. Both PC's are logged into the same Firefox Account.

The old PC has over 100 tabs open I need to have open on the new PC.

When I sync, it does not open the old PC tabs on the new PC.

I will need to use the old PC C drive eventually as the new PC D drive, but obviously cannot do so until the New PC has all the tabs open from the Old PC.

I cleared the browser console before attempting a sync - there are no error messages generated in the browser console after I tried to sync.

Please advise

Hello, I switched to Firefox from Chrome, however, the browser is missing one of the most important features I use almost all the time - swipe left to go back and swipe right to go forwards. I checked about:config and browser.gesture.swipe.left is set to Browser:BackOrBackDuplicate but it does not work. All answers on Mozilla Support and elsewhere are outdated or do not answer the question at all. Please fix this, it is the reason why I switched back to Chrome twice before. Any help is appreciated.

I truly cannot fathom why a browser, in this day & age, cannot put the list of open tabs & windows in the drop-down menu, in even SOME KIND OF ORDER! But no, it's nothing more than a long list, impossible to filter in any way, that is not in chronological, alphabetical, order of most recent used, no option to list via website or page title, etc. This is so ridiculously frustrating, along with the molasses lack of speed in opening up windows or tabs, that I'm on the verge of just chucking this entire app, for good. Why do our state-of-the-art advanced technological devices and apps, feel more like we're going backwards, and not forward??

Whenever I press a key on my keyboard (except when I'm typing) it starts finding the letter I pressed in the page I'm currently in. So whenever I press a hotkey on a website, it starts finding that letter instead of doing what that key was supposed to. I'm pretty sure this is a new feature because I never had this problem before.

I just had to both do a refresh and an update on my firefox browser, and after which, the + button to open a new tab is gone. For me and my work, this is infinitely more convenient than using ctrl + t, so I'm pretty desperate to get it back to the point that I will jump ship to Chrome if I can't.

It's not available to add on in the customization screen either, so I'm really concerned that firefox just removed it entirely with this update.

I'm not sure why they keep changing the template, but for me, this is a hill I'll die on. Please help.

When working I may have many, 20+ , tabs open. If I open a new tab it often gets totally lost. Yes it goes to the end of after Related current tab but this is not at all helpful. Sometimes the Related ones may be many and have to go hunting for it. I want to have have the old option of Opening Right Next to the Current tab. Not everyones choice but it needs to be an option.

The current setup can make using Firefox nearly unusable. Yes have gone into about:config page and changed the browser.tabs.insertRelatedAfterCurrent = true

It needs a browser.tabs.insertAfterCurrent = true No Related option

The problem occurs when I either open a new tab (ctrl+t) and type something in the bar, or open link in new tab (ctrl+link). The tab shows the html link only (no site title), without the site logo, no new tab firefox logo or anything loaded from the page. It doesn't even try to load and have a loading circle, but instantly giving up on loading. It appears tabs like this (previously not loading) won't load anything. If I open a new tab with the same query, it executes just fine. The problem also happens at random, with no pattern detected by me. It is an annoying problem when opening multiple new tabs having to search which one did not load. I tired changing browser.sessionstore.max_serialize_back to <10>50 number but with no effect. Using the current version 91.0.1 (64-bit). I don't want to delete cache and cookies, since it is not a real solution.

After searching in the browser bar, and then getting results, i click on hyperlinks from the results and new tabs open. I explore the subsequent open tabs, and then at some point, the search functions quit working in all tabs, and i need to restart firefox to correct the issue (searching in the main browser bar ).

If i type an actual address - it will sometimes "clear the glitch" and the "searching in the broswer bar" may start working again...

Any ideas why the search function would not respond from time to time?

And my computer was started and re-started several times during it's service. Is there a way to find tabs that I CLOSED yesterday????? Please help

bold textRecently Firefox has started opening a new tab all by it's self. I didn't ask for one, don't need one. It's also switching to an open tab without input from me. For instance, I am here trying to ask a question and it jumped to a tab that I have open to check the weather. My mouse hasn't moved, I haven't hit the tab key, nor have I touched the screen. What is going on? I uninstalled and reinstalled and it's still doing it. It's driving me nuts. I'm running the latest version on Windows 10 64 bit.
