Firefox has started hiding all tabs in a window except the active tab. This has happened in two different windows. I have no idea how to hide tabs and don't want to. How can I unhide the tabs. When I try to do it one by one, the first tab rehides when the 2nd one appears. Can I unhide multiple tabs at once? Do I have to unhide them one by one, and if so how? How do I stop Firefox from hiding tabs?

I have a little annoying problem with google and firefox that appeared (don't know if it is firefox bug or a google new policy) In the past when i did a research on google with firefox, the "sharing my location" popup only appeared when i did a location related request (weather, shop/restaurant, roadmap, local news, etc) or only once for few days, but now (like few weeks or months) i have this annoying popup appear basically everytime, even for random search like math formula or fictional stuff (does pikachu or naruto jutsu really need my location?), and even when i type the same research twice, firefox ask for location again, like if it has a golden fish memory of few seconds. How to stop this popup appear when it is not needed without having it permanently enabled or disabled for google site.

I have a new PC running Kubuntu 22.04, with Mozilla Firefox 120.0.1 (64 bit) installed. Standard, the system window title bar was hidden. But I wanted access to the "Move to desktop" menu and wanted the title in the title bar. So, in "Customize toolbar" I checked "Title bar". The title bar reappeared, but a complete border along the Firefox window became inaccessible, and when clicking in that zone, it effectively clicked in the window behind. In particular, the complete menu bar is inaccessible, as well as the scroll bar on the left and in the bookmarks sidebar the fold/unfold. And Mozilla Thunderbird 115.5.0 has the same annoying behaviour. Even when hovering over some menus in the Mozilla window, you can sometimes see reactions from the window under the Mozilla window. On older Kubuntu computers (up to 18.04) with older versions of Firefox (up to 113.0.2) and Thunderbird (up to 102.11.0) I do not have that problem. How can I get at the same time access to both the system title bar and the menu bar ?

Hi, for the past few Firefox releases, I run into a problem where the mouse cursor does not change into a "hand" when hovering over something clickable. Instead, it continues to keep its arrow form. This is not simply a cosmetic issue, as it appears to cause issues with websites that rely on hovering for drop-down menus, as well as clicking on YouTube videos, for example.

The issue briefly resolves itself when I restart or reset Firefox, but it always comes back within a few hours. I have also tried disabling all extensions to see if there is any improvement.

Firefox since 102 or 103 has a giant issues with gifs, movies ect after resuming from hibernation. In the Dev mode there are errors like this:

MediaLoadExhaustedCandidates = no any media can be loaded

Invalid URI. Load of media resource %S failed

Why does it happen only in firefox? Even in FF 120 Windows.

Hello,

I made a download 10 months ago, it failed OK.

But every other week that same old download keeps on restarting and failing.. its some kindof bug.

It then piles up with all failed downloads from the last year and they all try to load again and again automatically.

I tried to reinstall firefox and all but its a weird bug.

I have screenshots if needed.

Best regards

Alex

I followed the instructions at [[Unload inactive tabs to save system memory in Firefox|https://mzl.la/3AdRbLx]] but I still occasionally see the tab refresh when I select it. I start with a search on Bing, click an article to open a tab, follow links from there, back to the first tab and select another. I repeat this until there are several tabs open. Sometimes the page refreshes when I switch back to one that I previously reviewed. Is that controlled by the option browser.tabs.unloadOnLowMemory? if so, it doesn't appear to be working. [Edit] - The last time this happened I checked my system and found 10gig used of 64gig installed. I'm using the most current version of FF 120.0.1 on Windows 11 Pro v 22H2.

When I receive important gmail emails, I get notifications both sound and a popup in the lower-right corner, even if no Firefox window reaches that spot. Next to that popup X there's a ⋯ button and clicking it has 2 settings options and neither of those leads to something which could point to how I get notified. In about:config I entered "gmail" and got "extensions.webextensions.ExtensionStorageIDB.migrated.checkerplusforgmail@jasonsavard.com" but it's not showing in enabled extension.

How can I dis/enable it and possibly change the settings of what notifies me of important gmail emails?

Thank you kindly for your help

I recently installed Firefox version 120.0.1 on Linux Lite 6.6 and logged in to my Mozilla and Firefox accounts, then synced my data. In the past, when I used Ubuntu Desktop 22.04, this method would display all the bookmarks I had saved on other devices that also use Firefox. However, for this case, syncing did not successfully display bookmarks in the Firefox toolbar.

I then tried exporting bookmarks to an HTML file, then importing them into the newly installed Firefox using the Bookmarks Manager, but the window for selecting the HTML file did not open, so I couldn't import bookmarks.html into the new Firefox installed on Linux Lite 6.6. I also tried restoring from the Bookmarks Manager, but the window for selecting the HTML file did not open either.

Is there another way to transfer these bookmarks to the newly installed Firefox on Linux Lite?
