Hello at Mozilla Support,

I'm having this issue where sometimes, when I double-click to download a link or open a downloads item, it opens the same bookmark page instead. This is the page, and not sure if it's alphabetical, since this pages starts with an 'a' "https://authorspublish.com/#optin" Wondering how I can get this to stop changing the page I am on and opening the bookmark.

Thanks, Sonya

Hi

Running Firefox 71.0 (64 bit)

Well seems Firefox has been messing this up again.

Anyone have the new work around solution to get my tabs back on the bottom again. They were fine this morning then shut down and went out to lunch and when I came back they were back on the top again after months of being where I wanted them below my bookmark bar.

Thoughts on this?

Thanks Dave

Firefox updated and now my tabs are above the address bar, I hate it. I have went through all the information I could and created a new chrome folder, downloaded the css and changed user preferences but it sets the tabs to the bottom of the screen not just below the address bar. I think I need a different set of code for the css but cant find a copy. Does anyone know what to do?

I can't understand why the Windows menu shows us all the open windows, in no order whatsoever. Not chronological or alphabetical, just random placements, making finding anything a dizzying & time consuming experience, as I have to look up and down each & every time. I don't know of any other browser that gives no option as to how to sort this lis.

Since the last Firefox update, I've noticed an issue whenever I launch the browser. I have it set up so that I have multiple tabs open, and it's set up so that when Firefox starts up, it opens all of the previous tabs and starts me on the tab I was on when I closed the browser previously.

Now whenever I start Firefox, it opens to the last tab I was on, but said tab opens on my current homepage instead of the website that tab was on previously. I experimented by changing my homepage to "Youtube.com", picked a different open tab, closed Firefox and opened it again and sure enough, the tab was now on the Youtube page instead of what it had been previously.

Is this just a bug of the current Firefox version, or is there something in settings I can do to fix this?

Tabs, history, bookmarks, basicly anything and everything that was crucial are gone, seemingly after recent update. I had similar problem a couple of month ago and didn't find clear solution back then, but it all got sorted out maybe in couple of days (probably with next update or something?). Well who would've thought i would get screwed like that a second time.

So i can't tell for sure whats caused it or how it got fixed. What i manged to figure out both times this happend is that somehow i have 2 versions of Firefox Profiles judgin by the dates of the cursed updates. So i guess my stuff is still there but i can't acces it.

Also worth mentioning is that both times i've got screwed by updates, my FF shortcuts from Quick Acces pannel stoped working and i needed to drag'n'drop em all over again.

Im at totall loss here, i know the info i've provided is almost nonexistant but if anyone knows whats up i would be greatly apreciative if you could tell how do i fix this and prevent it from happening in the future.

Yesterday I had Picture-In-Picture (shortened into pip for next mentions) working on youtube, then after one day, PIP no longer works on any of the websites, including youtube. I tried disabling and enabling pip, entering troubleshoot mode, and none of them worked. Not reinstalling because it will be annoying to log in everywhere I've had account at.

Any solution?

I had two Firefox windows open. One had 100+ tabs open, the other had around 5 open. Like a klutz I accidentally closed the window with the 100+ tabs open instead of the other window. Now when Firefox restarts it opens the version with the 5 tabs.  :-( I read about lost tabs in Firefox. I have found a file with the 100+ tabs in it. It is called: upgrade.jsonlz4-20221007134813. But what do I do next to restore Firefox to restart with the 100+ tabs version? Thanks.

I usually work with between four and twenty tabs open on a page in FireFox. Now what I see above the address bar where they used to be: Firefox Icon < button > button entire top under menu is empty where tabs used to be far right is a + for a new tab and a down button to give me a menu of tabs.

I want to see the tabs, even if they are squished or scrolled when I get a bunch of them.

The drop-down is not a bad addition but it should not replace the horizontal display!

Since the last Firefox update to 108.01, or that is when I first noticed this problem. When I have many tabs open right to the end of the tab bar the new tab + disappears off the screen. The more tabs I open it does correctly automatically reduce the width of the tabs but pushes the + tab off to the right, this never use to happen before it always kept the new tab + in view.

I recently came across this [https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/que.../1276091|question] when searching for a solution to unintentional detaching of tabs. The responses included mention of an addon as well as a new setting added in version 74 that sounded like the perfect solution for me by retaining the ability to detach a tab to a new window if explicitly requested via context menu.

I configured allowTabDetach to "false" but today had a tab unintentionally move to a new window because I clicked on a tab too quickly while the mouse was in motion. I'm not sure if there was a regression in behavior for this setting or if perhaps it does not combine well with the Tree Style Tab extension.

Image interactibility has changed since the last Firefox update.

It used to be I could do a Google search and I could click on the images on the main search result page (under the 'All' section, not the 'Images' section) and they would open in a new tab immediately.

Since the update when I click on an image it docks the image to the right...when I need it to open in a new tab.

If I can't get this fixed I will be going back to a previous version.

I restarted firefox today, and now I have the following behavior: I have a window with many tabs open, enough that I have the little '<' and '>' scroll buttons in the field. Whenever I move the mouse pointer into the tab area (including the scroll buttons, but not the '+' (new tab) button to the right), unless I am actively clicking, the tabs start scrolling rightward until only the rightmost set of tabs are visible. The window being viewed does not change. I can use the 'v' tab selector to the right, and it will select the chosen tab and make that visible in the window, and make the selected tab visible in the tab bar, but when I again move the pointer into the tab area, it starts scrolling to the right. Similarly, I can click on the '<' scroll left button, or double or triple click on it, and it will scroll the tabs leftward; but immediately after completing the action, the tabs will scroll rightward to the end again.

It seems my problem is the same one as in this thread but there was no solution given there (the problem persists after restarting Firefox in troubleshooting mode). I see the same behavior as that poster with the tooltips in the tab bar, but drop-down menus such as on this submission page seem to be working normally for me.
