I want FF to open multiple sites when I first load the program. But, I don't want them all to be included as a home page selection. I can do this in Chrome and Edge, but I don't see how in FF. Currently, every time I hit the home icon in FF, all tabs are reloaded to the same tabs that are already open.

I can do this with the mouse, but I would like to use the keyboard to move the current tab to the end. The manual says : Ctrl + Shift + End - requires the currently selected tab to be "in focus" for instance, by hitting Alt + D to focus the address bar, and then Shift + Tab until you reach the browser tab bar ... This doesn't seem to work, or it doesn't work when you have 1.000 tabs open ... Trying to open the right-click menu using the keyboard doesn't work either (or cannot be done ?). If I could open the right-click menu of the tab, then I would be able to navigate to Move Tab -> Move to End, but that can't be done either ...  :-( Any help ? Would this be inspiration for a feature request ? Or defect fix ? (short-cut key doesn't work)

Question: Is there a way to save the personalized session screen under a reference name?

I have created a screen with some 10 fixed tabs that i use each day in a fixed order. It enables me to quickly swap from 1 tab to another.

In preferences I opted for restore sessions, and it works, but sometimes (e.g. after OSX upgrade) i loose the session set-up and have to re-organize all the tabs again.

Thks in advance for helping me out. EvK

Website always opens in container, "Reopen in Container" => "No Container" doesn't work

Desktop FireFox browser v. 84.0.2 (64-bit)

I made the mistake of asking to always open a site in a container and for it to remember my choice. Now I can't get it to open in no container. The context menu choice to "Reopen in Container" => "No Container" seems to ignored.

The issue: I have to different logins for a site (dev.azure.com). I open one in the work container and the other in no container. I didn't realize the open in container would operate only on the domain, which makes sense in hindsight. However, now the site is broken for one of the sites, and I can't find where to reset this choice. How do I do that?

Before shutting down Firefox I deleted history/cache/passwords etc from the past day

I do this all the time but since I had restore previous tabs selected they always get restored when I start up again

However this time they weren't restored when I restarted

Without closing Firefox I navigated to the sessionstore-backups folder to see what was there but the files were only 2KB - much too small for the number of tabs.

So I installed ShadowExplorer & Shadowcopyview to see if I could recover older versions I was able to locate jsonlz4 files from a few days ago that were around 11000KB in size so I assumed they would have most of my tabs

However when trying to use the files nothing happens - I tried 2 different steps that I read here had worked for others

1 - Renaming previous.jsonlz4 to sessionstore.jsonlz4 , moving to the profile folder (deleting the old one first) and restarting FF

2 - Deleting sessionstore.jsonlz4 and copying the recovered previous.jsonlz4 / recovery.baklz4 /recovery.jsonlz4 / upgrade.jsonlz4-20201014125134 files to the sessionstore-backups folder and restarting FF

I also repeated the steps after creating a separate profile

None of these worked so I tried examining the jsonlz4 files using https://www.jeffersonscher.com/res/scrounger.html but I got an error message 'Session history file contents could not be read?'

Now I've previously used recovered Jsonlz4 files to restore tabs with no issues but this time they won't work

I read here https://support.mozilla.org/bm/questions/1189759 that updates may cause compatibility issues and the upgrade.jsonlz4-20201014125134 file indicates they was a recent update

The recovered file sizes indicate they contain data so I want to know how I can recover it - if not through FF then through some other software

I searched this forum but couldn't find an answer. I have "restore last session" turned on, but I'd like Firefox wouldn't reopen my last visited site after I close the browser by closing the last tab. In other words: if I close the browser by a regular means (by clicking the rightmost upper X, or by right-clicking the taskbar and choosing close window) it goes to the last viewed site when I reopen the browser – and that's ok – but when I close the last tab and the browser closes, I don't want to see this site again when I reopen Firefox. Is there a way to achieve this? By the way, this is the standard behavior in Google Chrome.

It been now the second time that upon opening firefox, it doesn't open the previous session but a new one. It's the second time that I loose ALL my tabs. The "restore previous session" is greyed, I tried the about:sessionrestore but it doesn't give me the possibility to restore the previous session, and on my computer, the sessionstore backup just has the restoresession from today. Is there any way to avoid this?

When I paste an URL with a port number in the address field of a new tab and press return, then the port number gets removed.

Example: I paste "http://localhost:5707/typo3" and press return Firefox then tries to connect to "https://localhost/typo3/", which is SSL and has no port number.

How can I disable that behavior?

This happens with Firefox 84

Sometimes when I open a new tab and go to search something it will just close and bring me back to the previous tab after I press enter. This also happens when I open a link in a new tab so its not a problem with my enter button closing it. If I choose top open a link in a new tab sometimes it will close without me even clicking on the tab.
