Each time I download the latest Firefox version, it becomes useless and all previously opened tabs can't open. Why so? The operating system of my MacBook MacOS Monterey version 12.6.7

Explain me why Firefox becomes useless when I download a new version

How to make "Reopen Closed Tab" actually reopen closed tabs again?

Up until Firefox 116, Reopen Closed Tab (Ctrl+Shift+T) would reopen closed tabs, and Reopen Closed Window (Ctrl+Shift+N) would reopen closed windows. There was a clear bifurcation, so I could freely close windows and not worry about it polluting my tab history in another window.

The latest change has thrown out that advantage, and now Reopen Closed Tab reopens both tabs and windows, while Reopen Closed Window still just reopens windows. This makes the later essentially useless and the former much more difficult to use for me.

I assume this was done to just continue copying Chrome in all respects since that's how it handles it, but the changelog just vaguely states, "This change is in anticipation of upcoming changes to recently closed tabs."

Does anyone know if there's a setting to separate the two functions again?

When I try to open a link from an external software, in my case mostly discord, that which I click on, I get the profile manager opened, ask for which profile I should open from. If I already have the Firefox window for that profile open, I have to close the whole window and then it opens with all the tabs with a tab for the link I clicked on.

I would like to open tabs like how Chrome does, not asking for profile (yes, I know, I can just make things open on only one profile but I want to choose which one I want it to every single time without manager) and instead opens up from the profile window that I just had on.

I would like to open external links on an existing window and not close to open it.

So, ultimately, make my Firefox open link from the latest profile window I was on, and it does not require to close an existing window to open the link.

It is ABSURD https://bigthink.com/neuropsych/tab-overload/

Why browsers UI didn't change from 1999, when we know it causes tab overload, brain has to constantly filter everything it sees and how we engage with information is cruical in this age. All we get after 24 years are 4 categories to group tabs. I had even 3000 tabs peaking, average 1000+ reading philosophy. Einstein said: "human stupidity is infinite"...

Bookmarks are atrocious, you cannot even scroll panel with mouse holding bar, cannot cltr+f for existing folders, bookmark manager doesn't find existing folders, it sorts folders with bookmarks together contained under a folder... Doesn't have even tags, with thousands of bookmarks and folders, it would take 10 minutes to find fitting folder... I didn't also find any good 3rd party solutions really...

There are tab manager addons, but if you have again a lot of different tabs, it won't help you, it is useful for short-term workloads, but then you have nothing to store things in more permanent way. Also making notes all the time with reading would cost too energy especially if you need to research many things together... There is prototype of AI that saves all things based how you hover cursor over text etc. It would be great if it supported AI tracking and then highlights important info and makes notes, it is not publicly available yet in some solution...

Note taking programs suffer from same issues, missing core features, chat with AI is still very rudimentary and won't help you bring some small notes or piece of info you read 2 years ago, or something specific on-demand... When note taking program cannot even collapse notebooks on main view and you have seeing like 100ths different entries, or doesn't show available tags and selecte multiple of them quickly together under each notebook...

bottom line: there is no tab management really and all addons are really basic and doesn't support long-term intelligent storage for a lots of tabs so you find what you look for later, bookmarks are unuseable after certain amount (again no good third party solutions i saw...). Note taking programs all suffer from same issues, missing core features, again it is impossible to navigate any else way except using tags, but then if you have many then what, you cannot use tags to find thing nested under 20 other things, some specific bit of info, it will still be vehement to sort, if you cannot use multiple things together like jump to notebook and then see all tags what are there available, which would work better, you cannot remember all tags in each notebook you have... All solutions that exist missing core features and are overly simplistic and vehement... This gave me executive dysfunctions...

And if i give feedback to devs of absolutely logical core things, or what could be better and is missing and what stems from purpose and function and is self-evident: they tell me i am brilliant, it is ABSURD... Don't know what to say... 2023 there is still not way to efficiently make notes, capture knowledge... Even my former 160IQ friend said he had millions of files on disk basically has no idea where anything is... Learns everything from memory as he reads it before he goes to next things... It is really dumb in information age, so much interesting things from what we read is permanently lost, there is no really good way to capture info and link it and bring it easily later... Just diet, or healthy lifestyle can be complex and many different areas that are related and are under 20 other things... IT is impossible to find something later... It is absurdly bad how devs don't realize these things and normal ppl tell you you are crazy if you have over 10 tabs, while it was shown today work can generate easily over 100 tabs and it is important to manage information well... Yet there are no solutions, would have to hire programmer for every small thing i notice somewhere is missing, or is vehement useless basically...

If I right click a folder of bookmarks and select "Open All Bookmarks", the focused tab switches to the first bookmark in that folder, despite the fact that I do not have the following General preference item: "When you open a link, image or media in a new tab, switch to it immediately". While that item doesn't specifically describe the "Open All Bookmarks" situation, it's kind of the same idea. I have groups of bookmarks that I often visit, and I don't my focused tab switched every time request one.

Hi

Trying to make sync work the way I want. Initial question:

I've synced tabs between Windows desktop and Android. Now I would like to bookmark all those tabs in the desktop browser, without opening them first. I've found out how to view them in the side bar, but I see no option to bookmark all tabs.

It would be nice to have synced Tabs in the Library window and Options panel.

So I had a laptop that had to go under repair (device A), so had to use a different computer (device B). I sign into Firefox, and I can see the synced tabs from device A. For various reasons, the very next day I had to transfer to another computer (device C), so I logout of device B, and login into Firefox in device C. The synced tabs are no longer visible, even though in my account it says device A is still connected to the sync.

Bookmarks and such still load up just fine, I just can't see the device A synced tabs at all. Any clue why this is happening?

Also, is it normal that my email is still showing on the device B menu? Even though it says I logged out successfully, and device B is not showing in sync anymore, in the actual computer it's still showing on the menu above the "new tab" option. How do I remove my email from showing in that particular browse? Uninstall the program entirely?

Hello! Since updating to the last version (119.0.1), Firefox started keeping my open tabs between sessions. This is a behavior I don't want, and the only solution that I found told me to enable "clear history on close", however that is also not ideal, because I don't want to clear my history. The "Open previous windows and tabs" setting is off and my homepage is set to Firefox Default. I don't know where else to look for such a setting, except in the about:config, but even there I'm not sure which one is causing the issue. Any assistance would be appreciated.

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.

The website https://my.strathspey.org/dd/dance/12838/#cribs displays an image, which had a typo [Triangles used to be Traingles]

I am using Firefox 119.0.1 under Windows 10 Home Version 22H2 OS build 19045.3693

I had the page open in Firefox before the owner corrected the typo.

Immediately after the correction was online, all other browsers displayed the corrected version. But even now, hours later, after many resets by "Reload Tab", the Firefox tab still displays the typo-version.

I consider this to be a malfunction. "Reload tab" should bypass all caches, and reload the whole page directly from its server. - Is this a known bug? - If "Reload Tab" does not go to the source bypassing all caches, what doe it do? - Is there a workaround?

Hi everyone, long time returning user here, thanks for your help!

The default setting of middle click on new tab button (the "+") and middle click on empty space on tab bar are both "open blank new tab".

With the "browser.tabs.searchclipboardfor.middleclick" option in about:config, I am able middle click on new tab button (the "+") to open a new tab and search for the content of my clipboard at the same time.

However, I am looking to middle click on the empty space on tab bar to search for content of my clipboard. Essentially swapping the function between middle click on "+" and middle click on empty space on tab bar, when "browser.tabs.searchclipboardfor.middleclick" is set to "true".

I know how to use userChrome.css in general, but I have not figured out a way to achieve above goal...
