All of a sudden, I can no longer open new tabs in Firefox just by clicking the top bar (sorry, don't know how to describe this: the space that sits just below the line with 'File', 'Edit', 'View', 'History', etc. (Menu bar?) Formerly, when I had a tab open I used to be able just to click that line and a new tab would open. To open a new tab now I have to look to the right of the screen, and press the '+' button (Open a new tab Control+ 1) that appears in that same area just below the that is there. Not nearly as convenient. Please tell me how to fix this as simply as possible (I am not very computer literate). I have done nothing to change anything in the Firefox settings, so don't know why this happened all of a sudden. Very frustrating. My bookmarks all disappeared too, by the way, thoughI figured out how to resstore them to top of screen. I am using Windows 10 Thanks in advance, A frustrated Cynthia

I'd like to turn off the recommended articles that I see when opening new tabs. I find them to be quite bothersome, and the link pocket provides to learn more about this features a nonexistent article on how to disable these recommendations. Could you help me disable these?

Greetings, for some reason lately over the last couple weeks I have noticed that when I open a link to a site that I've had in my bookmarks for years it now opens that link or that page and then within a couple seconds another tab will open for advertisement or possibly even the duplication of the originally called upon link in the previous tab. I would like to stop these additional tabs from opening automatically without my request.

thanks in advance,

Hi, I recently tried to update my video driver, and afterward I was unable to login to Forge of Empires. They said I needed to restart Firefox, which I did. Unfortunately, I accidentally clicked on it twice, opening two instances, and then closed one without allowing either one to finish loading first. The one I didn't close only had one tab, so I went to Recently Closed Tabs to see about restoring my previous session, but it was empty. I also found all of the tabs in my Simple Tab Groups extension were gone so I couldn't restore it from there. My bookmarks still remain. I followed instructions I found to use the .jsonlz4 files, but they also only had the one tab. As suggested in another support page, I also searched for index.dat files, but found none relating to Firefox. Should I have any hope of recovery, or do I need to start over from scratch? Please help. Thanks, Geoffrey

Today when I closed Firefox and reopened it the option to restore previous session was not shown, as a result I have lost half my pinned tabs (I managed to redo the rest from bookmarks) which were vital. I tried going into history but the option was greyed out.

This happened yesterday too but after redoing half my tabs I went to open gmail and it restored all my tabs, I tried the sane today but it failed so am stuck with half my tabs.

Please do not suggest I use synch as I only use one device.

This started a few hours ago and I can't get it to stop. I've tried restarting Firefox, restarting my computer, reducing the tabs I have open. It basically freezes up and then every single tab has the loading icon.

It doesn't appear to be crashing and restarting because I don't see the windows disappear at any time.

I've tried looking online but I can't find anybody else encountering this.

Gah. Your tab just crashed. We can help! Choose Restore This Tab to reload the page.

That is what I keep getting.

My laptop updated system just now without closing the browser. After restarting, there is no restore option for firefox. No recently closed taps and windows. But the history is correct stored. I had opened 3 windows with many tabs. I/m wondering if there is any method to restore the windows instead of click the history one by one. There are hundreds of tabs....

Nothing changes. When I start Firefox, it simply won't load all tabs. How do I fix this?

Every day I have to work and use my pinned tabs. But now, they disappear every time Firefox restarts, notwithstanding that your settings indicated Firefox will reopen all tabs on the next session. Why? Where I live there are blackouts every day, especially during the night. So I have to close all my programs, turn off my computer, and restart it early in the morning in order to work. Please turn back to reopen pinned tabs every time Firefox reopens!

I use to be able to open a new Tab and automatically get the home page to appear, now it seems that I either get a generic Firefox home page or a blank one. This is not what I want nor need, if it was I would have chosen it. What is the point of having a home page if you cannot use it??? Having the home page icon now becomes a special icon for a page one just likes to use every time they open a new tab that you have to click on every time you need it. It just happens to be EVERY TIME I open a new tab.

Thanks for your help.

hello, i been runing esr releases of firefox for long time now because i really don't like many changes that get thrown in from time to time and i at least feel like my computer at home will not attack me But even esr sometimes makes me "happy" by force and now my tabs don't fit the window i am currently on firefox esr 115.3 64 bit and it must have updated from previous long support version recently because i simply can't figure out how to use it in a state as it is I kep multiple tabs open all the time, but they don't all fit on one window width and up untill yesterfday i had small scrolling buttons now the buttons are gone and tabs are all fixes size the biggest possible and simply don't fit the window , they spill into infinity on the right size and i can't even get to the tabs that got out on the right because neither scrolling by mouse or arrow buttons don't work and there is noleft/right button to press on top of the tabs
