Since the last update, whenever I click a hyper link to open (email and sites) to read/see the info for said link. The tab opens but that is all and it's either just blank or stats that I am not connected to the internet (especially when searching on google.) when I am.

The tabs I had open were important to me and I went on a deep dive into the history of China and I'd like to reopen all of those tabs even if they are to be made public as I don't know if I can remember to reopen all of them.

Is there a way to find the tabs I had opened???

Any help would be appreciated!

Sometimes when loading a page, and the page is slow to respond, I will see a strange situation: The page is totally blank (the F12 tool does not display page content). The refresh button is gray (disabled), or sometimes although the refresh button enabled, the url textbox is "about:blank", which means I cannot actually reload the page I want to read. I have to re-navigate to the page through the link in the previous link. I'm not sure whether I got across. I hope the issue can be fixed.

Is there a way to save a session or your set of tabs? My "Open previous windows and tabs" is checked on. But occasionally the app will erase the tabs when you've relaunched or quit the app. Such an easy request for Mozilla never to implement into the feature of this web browser.

Can't read transparent tabs in Firefox 91

Please, please, please, stop changing things that were working just fine. Every time you make one of these pointless UI changes it pushes me towards Chrome. I really prefer Firefox and have used it almost exclusively for over a decade. But how am I supposed to be able to use it when I literally can't read the interface? With every update I am sent to google various solutions posted by other users trying to remedy problems caused by the latest update. I shouldn't have to dive into about:config every time the FF developers decide to play with the source code. I shouldn't have to install UI addons to maintain intuitive workflow. I shouldn't have to append userChrome.css with code copy-pasted from some forum. And this is to say nothing of the users that are inexperienced enough or unwilling to make such changes. Most just switch to Chrome. Sure, some of it is personal preference. "Do you like large tabs or small tabs? Do you like square tabs or rounded tabs?" But when I LITERALLY CANT READ THEM, that's not something ANY user should have to google or fix on their end. That is the developers dropping the ball. Fix this. Firefox developers, YOU fix this. Because I am DONE with midnight scrambles to repair what someone else broke.

This morning all of my tabs from the previous Firefox session were lost. When I tried to restore the session, I'm seeing that this option is not available from any of the menus. My preferences haven't changed, so I don't know why the tabs were lost when I closed the session last night, to begin with. I'm running 94.01 on Mac OS Mojave 10.14.6.

So, I just got the new firefox update, v91 I think? and the tabs are absolutely driving me insane. I can't quite find how to fix it.

Last time, I had the proton tabs disabled and that was pretty much all I needed to fix the issue. But right now I've got two problems: 1. I really dislike the floating look to them, is there any way to again block the proton update/feel etc? 2. This is the one that's truly got me bananas: the volume icon that one usually got in the tab by default when sound was being reproduced... now only shows when the cursor hovers above it, otherwise it disappears. Is there any way to bring this function back?

Please, please help.

I adore Firefox, have been using it pretty much since 2004 or thereabouts, and would not change it... but sometimes these changes drive me to tears. I'd love it if there was a manual or something that would teach one how to change these things without having to bother anyone else :(

Thank you guys!!

I got extremely used to switching between tabs with Ctrl+(number) when I was on Windows, and now this feature is kind of broken for me on Linux. I have checked and can confirm that I don't have a shortcut already set to this key binding, so there is no conflicting going on.

The weird thing is that I am able to use all the other numbers (2-9) with no problem, and they work as intended. If anyone knows how to fix this problem, I'll be happy to hear the solution.

In previous versions, I could open an image within the same tab, now you can only open it in a new tab and if it's on a malware site, tough luck. Also, for one Firefox process there used to be a single window in the taskbar, now it's one for each tab, and that's completely pointless.
