Firefox 67 no longer warns about closing tabs to the right or all other tabs.

Doesn't seem to matter the number, and browser.tabs.warnOnClose and browser.tabs.warnOnCloseOtherTabs are set to 'true'.

I updated firefox and i am guessing the settings defaulted IDK... but when i try to print labels from etsy or any selling plantform they do not open up in a new tab. instead, they open on the same page so I have to always use the "Go Back Page" button which is annoying. Previously I was just able to purchase the label and it would either download to my desktop or open in a new tab. But that doesnt happen anymore. Someone please help.

Thanks in advance

For some reason it updated without asking/notifying me about it. Then after it restarted it reset EVERYTHING. I don't see the Apps anymore, the shortcuts on toolbar are gone/back to defult items & I can't restore any of the past backedup sessions from the past week! I had at least 150+ tabs in 4 windows. And I already tried the "History> Closed tabs"restore thing. It only restores the LAST session, since I've been trying to fix/figure this out for at least 12 hours & nothing has restored the tabs from about 13 hours ago. Note: My Bookmarks & History (I've previously set to saved before the sessions I've had to restart during) are fine, it's only the many tabs that I can't restore is my sudden problem.

I have to manually shut down the computer to make it stop loading new tabs with the phone number. When I re-start I need to close all the tabs it created (last time it was over 60 tabs). I think it is a bug in Firefox, or my version is defective. I have not yet tried to re-install Firefox.

Last night I decided to check the monthly weather forecast just before going to bed. I googled, "weather" then clicked through to a website before realizing it wasn't the one I meant to click. I backed out and clicked another link further down the list. I thought to myself, "That's going to screw me up in future because the wrong website will be a visited link and I'll mistake it for my preferred site."

I'm a long-time Firefox user and upgraded to Quantum when it first came out. I had made a cursory inspection of some of the new features at that time, and remembered the little counter-clockwise arrow in the toolbar was supposed to be a shortcut for deleting a set time frame of browsing history. Remembering this, I clicked it and a little menu popped up with options for how much history to forget. I clicked the option to forget 5 minutes.

I'd had multiple windows with multiple tabs open and they all disappeared instantly. I don't know if the browser crashed or simply intended to restart itself, but when it reopened there was only one window with no tabs.

I quickly hit the three bar menu button in the top-right and navigated to Library > History > Recently Closed Windows. Both this menu and Recently Closed Tabs were entirely empty.

My secondary Windows were of secondary importance, but my first and primary window had a large number of pinned and ordinary tabs that I did not want to lose. Tabs that I have been saving for months - some more than a year. Many that I migrated from Firefox I to Quantum. In the past, they have always been recoverable through the History. Now they seem to have been erased without a trace because I clicked, "Forget 5 minutes" from the toolbar.

I tried using Window's System Restore to reset my computer to a restore point from yesterday, but this had no effect on my Firefox session. Is there any way to reverse this and recover the session I've been using daily since before Quantum had been released? Is it anywhere?

Using 61.02 (64 bit) Firefox Quantum.

I have rheumatoid arthritis in my hands. Need help on three things.

1. Clicking on the smaller, pinned tabs have become more difficult over time. I need to make the pinned tabs large so I can continue to use them. How do I do that?

2. I have my pinned tabs in a certain order but, many times, after reopening FF, the pinned tabs are in a different order. How can I stop this?

3. This last one has been driving me ABSOLUTELY BONKERS for the past few months!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! And has tempted me to stop using FF because I'm sick and tired of things, that work well, being taken away.

I had FF setup so, when clicking on a link in a parent tab, the link would open directly to the right of the parent tab. An update a few months ago stopped this from happening.

I need it back pronto!

I have scoured the internet looking for a fix for this. Something FF already had and it worked wonderfully before being yanked away (like so many other good things on FF)/ But I can't find a fix. I am using the Open Tabs Next To Current add-on but it isn't the same and can randomly do strange things like opening the child tab to the left of the parent tab, or preventing a tab from being moved.

I need this option back.

FF - STOP taking things away from your users. You need to ask your users what is and is not acceptable before just changing things because you think it's a good idea. It ticks us off and makes us reluctant to keep using a product that makes things so difficult. Do you know how much time your users spend on tweaking FF to get it just the way they want before you go an change it on them?

Would you find this acceptable behavior if it was your car?

You spend a lot of time getting your car the way you want it - you have it repainted, redo the upholstery, install the perfect stereo system, get just the right hubcaps, etc. Only to find one day your car isn't the same. It now looks different. The paint is a different color, you've never seen the upholstery pattern before, the stereo has been replaced with something that no longer works, the hubcaps are broken or mssing, and the speed/gas mileage isn't the same.

You'd want YOUR car back. After all, you spent all that time and effort on it. You start to hate your "new" car, And you didn't have a say in the tweaking of it. Someone else decided the changes were necessary. So then you have to spend more time tweaking it to suit you...AGAIN. Rinse and repeat ad nauseum.

I've used FF for roughly 2 decades. Do you know how many times this has happened to me? I get FF just right and you change it on me. Progress may be inevitable but you need to allow your user input on your changes.

And STOP TAKING AWAY THINGS THAT WORK WELL!

My home page is myyahoo.com and I have a ton of links which do not open in new tab. The ONLY one that does work is opening up mail with the right click and Yahoo mail opens in a new tab. Please advise how to fix this terribly annoying issue with Firefox. BTW, open in new window does work. Thank You.

I am a user that opens a lot of tabs at a time from any given page, and firefox will attempt to load them all at the same time. This chokes out my bandwidth or will give server side errors causing problems for both firefox, my router and even the visited websites.

I would like to see an about:config option that would allow a variable option to open the tabs up but keep them unloaded until n-tabs prior have finished being loaded.

This feature will greatly balance the network load, and improve firefox's performance.

Thank you.

P.S. An example of this can be found at the LONG outdated firefox addon https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/load-tabs-progressively/

I normally have a lot of tabs open and I am quite tired of how Firefox jumps wildly all over the place whenever I:

• Make a new tab

• Open a link in a new tab

• Close a tab

I would just like Firefox to behave like browsers have always behaved: new tabs appear immediately to the right. And when a tab is closed, focus goes to the tab immediately left.

I don't remember when Firefox started behaving differently but these days it seems to remember the order the tabs were opened or viewed, which causes it to jump all over the place when you simply open or close tabs.

I really think it's about time that Firefox allowed customization of these settings.

For the record, in my about: config, I have browser.tabs.insertRelatedAfterCurrent set to true, but it doesn't seem to make any difference.

I've also tried installing the add-on "Open Tabs Next To Current" but it behaves quite erratically with new tabs, and doesn't have any affect at all on links opened in new tabs.
