Does having inactive tabs, such as news articles with embedded videos playing, consume data?

In my location, my only option for internet access is a mobile hotspot with limited data. Consequently, I am always mindful of my data usage when using my laptop. Despite primarily browsing static pages, email, and other low-data activities, I often find my data usage higher than anticipated. The main culprit comes to mind to be videos embedded in news articles. Sometimes, with multiple tabs open, I switch to an inactive tab only to find a video playing. Although I've configured my Firefox preferences not to autoplay videos, it seems that YouTube videos still override these settings.

So, my question is, when a tab is inactive, does Firefox stop all data transfer for that tab in the background? And if not, what are the solutions to stop any background data other than continually closing all tabs?


Also, any suggestions on this topic are appreciated, especially from and to users who also live in remote areas without fiber, DSL, etc.

Starting with the most recent update, 123.0, when I ctrl-click a link in Twitter or Blue Sky, the link opens in a new tab, but Firefox does NOT jump to the tab automatically. In any other site, the browser performs as expected. My options are set correctly, and all the relevant about:config settings are set to False. Using Windows 10, 22h2.

For ages I've had my tabs automatically restored when opening Firefox. But as of the last few days it won't. The old links are saved so I can restore them one by one through history but that's not automatic. And if I click on restoration in History it will bring up a whole bunch of old tabs not neccessarily from the last session.

I'm on the same computer as I've been for over a year, so I don't know what what the problem is. I've searched on it and tried to re-check the box for this function. But it won't apply...

Hi Windows 11. Every time I open a new tab and make a search I get a field under the bookmarks for my google account. I do not want this. On the web it says I should go to account settings and scroll down to the Linked Accounts section. I cannot find that section. Elsewhere I read that I have to do something in my google account as well. How do I get rid of the field for my google account when searching in firefox, please?

I've been trying to reply to my previous question here: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/que.../1440060, but my reply ends with an error - c attached. Therefore, I'm starting this new thread.

First, thank you for the answers. I have run into an issue and also have a follow-up question.

Follow up question: A while ago, I changed the autoplay settings in about:config, but I noticed they reverted to default. Do these settings reset with major browser updates? Or could it be that the settings' names changed, resulting in the default value being applied? Should I periodically check these values to ensure they haven't changed?

Issue: I updated the settings in about:config as mentioned in https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1440060 by cor-el. It appears to have stopped the autoplay of videos. However, after browsing Google News and Yahoo News articles for about 30 minutes, my browser crashes. This happens under the same usage pattern as before. The browser becomes unresponsive, and if I click on anything, I see the rainbow Apple spinning wheel. Eventually, I have to force quit the browser. See attached.

Thank you!

This is happening near a year and I can't find a way to consistently replicate this issue but;

While Private Mode is open, if I open the Normal Mode, visit some sites then close it, when I reopen the Normal Mode it is restoring the last session.

This wasn't happening when the Private Mode was separated, like umm, it wasn't have it's own icon at the Task Bar.

So far I tried setting these values to false in about:config browser.sessionstore.resume_from_crash toolkit.winRegisterApplicationRestart

but it doesn't help with this problem. It only works if the Firefox actually crashes or closed abruptly like powering off the PC. But doesn't stop it's restoring when done this way.

If you type "% [search term]" in your search bar, it will try to search your existing tabs for any tabs that fit the criteria. The problem is, firefox is making odd decisions on what to display in the search results. I was under the impression that Firefox would prioritize the most frequently used tabs in the search results, but this no longer appears to be true, or the criteria used is more complex than that.

As an example, in the attached screenshot, i am searching for tabs with the keyword "Stellaris". But for some reason, Firefox refuses to show me any reddit tabs with "Stellaris" in them, and is instead showing a list of tabs that are much less frequently used.

Is there any way to get the search results to prioritize the most frequently used tabs, change what shows up in the search results, etc? I know i can type "stellaris reddit" to narrow down the search results, but i would prefer that the search results prioritize the msot frequently used tabs.

Using Firefox 115.7 ESR btw.

Note: Please read my reply to the post, below, for an update.

I like to have new tabs open at the end of my tab stream so that each new tab opens in consecutive order. This is only inconvenient when I have a lot of tabs and need to scroll to the end for the latest. Because I was working with a lot of tabs today I toggled the following to "true" in about:config —

browser.tabs.insertAfterCurrent = true browser.tabs.insertRelatedAfterCurrent = true

The issue I'm having is that after toggling back to false, new tabs continue to open after the current tab, rather than at the end as before.

I'm not clear on the difference between related and unrelated, so I've experimented toggling one on, one off and neither or both but for some reason the behavior continues to default to opening new tabs after current in each case.

I have also tried restarting both Firefox and the computer, but this has not had any effect, either.

I have included a screen shot of the present settings and behavior.

I have been using the "Restore Previous Session Option" fairly often for years, but within the last few weeks the option is no longer there.

I had tried to use the Settings > Open Previous Windows and Tabs as a workaround, but it doesn't appear to be consistent.

Did something change in a recent update, or is my installation broken somehow? I tried refreshing Firefox but that didn't bring it back.

The article here shows what I am referring to and has a screenshot of where the "Restore Previous Session" option was: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/restore-previous-session#w_when-session-restore-occurs

This isn't a constant issue for me, but occasionally the browser will suddenly break such that when I switch tabs, nothing actually updates until I do something like restore/maximise the window. I can still interact with the page itself, but whether using the mouse or keyboard shortcuts, changing, opening, or closing tabs, or even typing in the navigation bar, won't do anything until I resize the window again. I haven't been able to figure out any pattern to when this state triggers, but after it does, it doesn't clear up without closing and reopening the browser. I have recorded a video showing this behavior but I am unable to upload it here, and still images would not properly convey the issue.

I would like to use the Firefox Container tabs. I understand how they group tabs in different catagories keeping cookies separate and making your browsing more private.

I'd like to be able to select one container and have all of the tabs in that container open at once.
