I'm running version 118.02.2 (64-bit) of Firefox on Windows 12. I *always* have the 'Open previous windows and tabs' checked. Starting yesterday, Firefox opens with nothing other than a blank page. Luckily for me, this has happened in the past and I have a Bookmarks Menu folder with my default tabs saved. Even so, it's still frustrating.

In the new version of the Developer Edition the options "close tabs to the right" and "close other tabs" are in a sub-menu named "Close Multiple Tabs" inside the context menu. Is there's a way to change this so that they will appear directly in the main context menu? I use "close tabs to the right" often and I find this very annoying.

I just reinstalled my operative system, and with that my Firefox settings got reset. I know there is an entry in about:config to prevent ads from opening new tabs and pop ups without authorization, even from legit websites like the login pop-up windows when doing a sign in in Google, in those cases to allow the windows it's needed to click on the lock icon next to the URL bar and allow it from there. The problem is that I don't remember the name of that setting and I have spend an hour looking for it on Google.

I have my tab bar below the other toolbars. I have a userChrome.css to help set things up the way I use them. System is Linux 64-bit.

Just updated Firefox from a few-months-older version to 91.6.1esr from the official repos and my tab bar is now blank. No tabs, no nothing. When I open a "new tab" I just get the new page; the "Back" arrow is greyed out, so it presumably is a net tabsheet. But I have no tab to get back to the previous page, all is blank.

The tab bar is there at the top OK in Troubleshooting Mode. En/dis-abling all my extensions etc. makes no difference in either mode.

Fixes for related issues tend to focus on userChrome.css but none offers a straight code sample to fix this issue. Here is an extract from mine, I have no idea whether any of it is relevant:

#nav-bar { /* main toolbar */
  -moz-box-ordinal-group: 1 !important;
  box-shadow: none !important;
}
#PersonalToolbar { /* bookmarks toolbar */
  -moz-box-ordinal-group: 2 !important;
}
#TabsToolbar { /* tab bar */
  -moz-box-ordinal-group: 3 !important;
  padding-top: 0 !important;
}

/* FIX TO MOVE TAB BAR BELOW TOOLBAR /*

#navigator-toolbox toolbar:not(#nav-bar):not(#toolbar-menubar) {
  -moz-box-ordinal-group: 10 !important;
}

#TabsToolbar {
  -moz-box-ordinal-group: 1000 !important;
  display: block !important;
  position: absolute !important;
  bottom: 0 !important;
  width: 100vw !important;
}

#tabbrowser-tabs {
  width: 100vw !important;
}

*|*:root:not([chromehidden*="toolbar"]) #navigator-toolbox {
  padding-bottom: calc(var(--tab-min-height) + 1px) !important; /*adjust*/
}

/* Firefox 65-73 */
*|*:root[tabsintitlebar]:not([inFullscreen="true"]):not([sizemode="maximized"])
 #toolbar-menubar[autohide="true"] ~ #TabsToolbar{
  bottom: var(--tab-min-height) !important;
  padding-top: calc(var(--tab-min-height) - 20px) !important; /*adjust*/
}

/* TABS: height */
*|*:root {
  --tab-toolbar-navbar-overlap: 0px !important;
  --tab-min-height: 25px !important; /*adjust or omit to use density*/
}

*|*:root #tabbrowser-tabs {
  --tab-min-width: 80px !important; /*adjust or omit to use default*/
}

#TabsToolbar {
  height: var(--tab-min-height) !important;
  margin-bottom: 1px !important;
  box-shadow: ThreeDShadow 0 -1px inset, -moz-dialog 0 1px !important; /*omit*/
  background-color: var(--toolbar-bgcolor) !important;
  color: var(--toolbar-color) !important;
}

I had a number of tabs open today (~40). Because Firefox started to malfunction, I had to restart Firefox. It happened to me before and I knew that I can restore my previous session so I safely closed the tabs.

When I restarted it, I opened a tab and then I tried to open the Application Menu, but accidentally closed the window. Now, when I've re-opened Firefox and attempted to restore the previous session only that last tab appeared.

Is it possible to recover the pre-previous session? I use Ubuntu 18.04. Where is this information located? and how can I retrieve it?

How to stop firefox from forcing a new tab for "new" web pages?

Apologies if this is a bit limited, during typing it I ran into the issue I'm about to describe which navigated me away from this page and lost all the progress of my post as I was wrapping up :')

The issue I'm having right now is Firefox forcibly opening pages it thinks are a new site in new tabs, despite the site itself not requesting new tabs or windows. Specifically this is happening with sites between different "iterations" of itself while still being the same and having fully integrated layouts and UI.

For example: Most pages on the site have an update "https://www1" prefix, but some pages have the old "https://" only. Firefox keeps opening new tabs when navigating between these different pages despite them being the same website. I know the pages themselves are not sending new tab requests because this doesn't happen in Chrome.

So far, my "solution" has been to go through about:config to adjust the browser.link.open_newwindow value to 1 instead of 3, which forces all links to stay within the same window. This unfortunately causes a whole host of other issues though.

Because its an override, it also means any links opened from an external program (like discord) forcibly open in the last active tab, navigating away from the page. This is obnoxious and annoying in and of itself because it means to save the tabs I already have open I need to manually open a new tab in FF before clicking any link, which I never remember to do. (Goodbye post progress (': )

If that weren't bad enough, when trying to hit the back button to get to the previous page FF ends up in some sort of weird redirection loop "between" pages, where the last page will disappear but FF won't navigate to the link it was trying to open either, so its just a blank infinitely loading page with the URL of the link that was opened. The only way to stop this from happening is to navigate back 2 pages, losing the current page, before it starts the redirect loop. If the loop starts before this happens, the tab locks up and needs to be hard-refreshed with f5 or completely closed due to the weird lag it causes.

Literally all I want Firefox to do here is not assume a new tab needs to be opened just because the URL "seems" different to it. Is there ANY way to get this behavior?

This is the first time, that an update lost all of my tabs. Is there a way to access previous sessions, other than the most recent one? I would like to access a session from last week, and see if I can get my tabs back. I'm very unhappy about this and I've not been able to restore my tabs. The current tabs are place holders, and they do the reflect what I had before the update.

Hello,

I know that it's possible with Chrome, but I cannot do it with Firefox. Is there preferably) a trick to do it or any add-on ?

Access the history from a tab and then copy one of the link. It's very useful to keep current page open and paste old link (in a mail, a new tab, etc...).

History > Manage history doesn't show anything (but might be normal due to my settings).

Thanks !

Hello, For no reason I can easily identify, the plus symbol labeled tab to open new tabs from the browser has disappeared. I can still easily use the right click of the mouse or the control t keyboard trick, but I would much prefer the convenience of the ever available and accessible plus tab option. Your help to restore this feature would be very much appreciated. I use a Dell pc laptop with Windows 365 and Firefox. Thank you, Milagra Tyler [email removed from public]
