Firefox MacOS : How to "unstick" Firefox from a space ?

Hello,

Whenever I try to open Firefox, it shows up rapidly on the current space but then disappears to move to the space where it has been closed the last time I used it.

For example : I have 3 spaces. I am on space 2 with Firefox open, I close it. I go back on space 1, open Firefox -> it will open on space 1 and then immediately the window will disappear to appear in the space 2. If I move Firefox to space 3, and close it (CMD+Q), the next time I'll launch it, the window will appear in space 3 no matter from which space I launch it.

Not my native language I hope I've been clear enough sorry.

And of course, when I right click Firefox on the dock, under Options, the value of "Assigned To" is "None". (already tried to assign it to a space then go back to none but it doesn't work).

This behaviour only concerns Firefox. All others apps behave like it should : open in the space I'm in.. If you have any idea..

My current macOS version is : macOS Catalina 10.15.4 Firefox version is : 75.0 Attached: a screenshot of my mission control settings (which are not the problem I think but just in case)

Thanks and have a nice day,

Amine

IS there a way to disable Switch to Tab PERMANENTLY? IT would be SLIGHTLY less annoying if it REFRESHED the old tab when it brought you to it. But for some really dumb reason, it doesn't. I don't want to have to remember to press Alt every time because I literally can't think of a single time I would ever want it.

I am not ALLOWED to ever find the location of the firefox address or navigation bar. The "people" of firefox use these two names all over this site, and not once will anyone tell me the location, or how they may be accessed. If the most basic data is EXCLUDED, because EVERYONE ALREADY KNOWS EVERYTHING ABOUT FIREFOX, how is the new user to find anything? I have spent 7 hours on your website, because this browser idles at almost a gig of RAM on the browser homepage, I researched and found out I'm supposed use the "navigation bar" unfortunately someone forgot include it's location. It's great that you include the data that the "minimize memory usage" button exists as a tool, BUT WHERE IN THE HELL WAS IT HIDDEN? I have never experienced a product that intentionally excludes instructions, and there is no way to get any help or service, and I'm left with this poor excuse for customer service with leaving questions that will never be answered. Thanking you in advance for NO HELP OR SERVICE, James Erb(email address).

One of the reasons I prefer Firefox to Chrome is that when I right-click on a link, I can open the link in a new tab.

I usually read news in Chrome because, on some sites, I open 20 new tabs without moving from the main news page. I can then move to the tabs, read one, close it, move to the next, etc.

I would like to move my news reading to Firefox, but I would like to be able to choose whether (or not) to open a new tab at the time the tab is being opened.

Is this possible?

I'm trying to move away from Opera. Especially after the antivirus told me it was accessing my webcam on my laptop. I WANT to use Mozilla. However, I've become addicted to the easy bars of "top sites" on the Opera main page, always there, the only bug is every 2 months or so, they add Booking.com and I have to delete it.

I'm having three issues in getting Mozilla to work for me:

1. The icons won't display after I put in the links, so half of them read as a blankish looking "A".

2. Mozilla keeps adding garbage I don't want, daily, in spades.

3. My sites are disappearing. WTF is the point of spending 1-2 hours tailoring my home page only to have it disappear?

I'd like to stop using Opera, but I want the convenience of what I use being front-paged and easy to see at a glance after I switch browsers. Granted, I don't need the myopically large icons of Opera, but something identifiable without scrutiny would be ideal. Is there a way to do this, or are we not there yet with Mozilla?

I use multiple profiles for work and personal browsing, and it's very important that I know which window will open a link when I click it.

I do this today on Chrome by focusing on the browser I want to receive the link before clicking it. Otherwise you have to constantly copy/paste a link from one window into another, which is a huge time waste.

This is today, the only thing that is stopping me from moving from Chrome to Firefox. Perhaps I missed something when I tried doing this in the past. Is there a setting or something else that can get Firefox to have a similar behavior?

So, I'm not really sure how to describe this, but I go to a few websites a lot, but I go to specific sections of their site and skip the home page entirely, I just moved over from chrome and it always knew what I wanted when I typed in the first 3 letters of the page, but firefox brings me to the actual page...which is technically correct but pretty annoying due to my habits.

For example, I go to android messages for web, the home page is worthless, but I want the web chat I type in 'mes' and brings me to the home page, not the actual useful page of messages for web

I have a couple of websites that keep popping up from time to time unexpectedly. There must be a way to simply add websites names e.g. www.ihatetheseguys.net to someplace on my Firefox browser, something like a BANNED LIST. And once added that website can never open on my browser again.

This seems like it should be a very simple to thing to do.... it would be like the exceptions list we can access in options where we add websites to a list and they are allowed to open, but this would be the opposite.

I have searched around and it seems there are some add-ons/apps/programs I can download and run on my computer, one called BLOCKSITE. But I dont want to download anything. This seems like it should be a very simple to thing to do on the option page. Simply add a BANNED LIST where we can type in websites and when they try to nope they get noped away to oblivion.

I had ms outlook mail which I uninstalled, on my toolbar, but now have MS Office 2016 as my email or should I say outlook 2016. The 'mail' icon in FF customized toolbar, still brings up the old outlook, which of course is a blank page. I've moved the mail icon back to the 'bookmark toolbar items', restarted ff browser and moved the 'mail envelope' back into the toolbar. Same problem. It brings up an old email that no longer exists except for 'Choose which account to send the email from' and 'cancel'. I can't type in the blue box and there's no place to add the correct email. I hope I'm explaining this right so someone can steer me in the right direction.

Hi.

I was looking how to restore the old ctrl+tab behavior and found https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1241201#answer-1174594 . This answered my first half of the question.

However, I do find the new ctrl+tab behavior useful, however not as a replacement of the old behavior, but as an additional feature.

Is there any way I can have ctrl+tab/ctrl+shift+tab behave in the old way, while binding a custom keybinding to the new recently used order tab behavior? (say, e.g. binding it to win+tab)
