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?

something strange happened. I think firefox updated or something. I turned on my computer and loaded firefox only to find all my tabs from previous session were gone. I followed the instructions on how load previous session but it was greyed out. I went to options and changed the setting to show previous session when starting. I searched through all my history trying to find all my previous tabs (which took me over an hour). After I closed firefox and tried again all the tabs were missing again. I repeated the same process and found that the setting had changed back to show my homepage, which is mozilla. This is really annoying!!! I just want it to load up my previous session when I open the browser!! Is it really that difficult to do? Please help because I am really irritated that I have to keep searching the history everytime that I want to see my pages.

so after the new firefox update all of my settings were changed back to default, and I often use alot of different windows and tabs and leave them open, and then some times close them to speed things up and so the computer does not crash or over heat do to running multiple windows at once, then if i need to find a tab from another window i closed, i will go into the history panel and reopen that closed window that contained the tab or set of tabs.

I had my firefox set so it would hold on to the last 10 or so closed windows, but after the update it got set back to default so it only saved the last 3, and last night (7/1/19) it erased one of my closed windows (i had 4 windows open and then closed one) after i closed another window and then that window took the place of it and the other was just erased. i looked around and could not find an answer to solve this issue. i found one question that was similar and they were told to use 

'jeffersonscher'

i used that with all of my different json files and json update files and all the tabs were and sessions were showing up but i could not find any of the tabs from that one window that was closed and erased 

is there a way to reopen or find that closed window that got erased?

Formerly, one could reorder tabs in a Firefox browser window by clicking and dragging. One could also click and hold a tab and move it to create a new window or take a tab from one window, click and drag it to another window. I am no longer able to do this on my Mac laptop, after updating to Firefox 71. I can't seem to find a special setting in Firefox 71. Is there one or a way to allow tab movement? Or do I need to revert to the previous version of Firefox?

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 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/

New tabs are preserved but existing tabs are not opening the URL they were last closed at.

For example, If I am on page 1 of a forum/comic on a tab and I move to page 3 and then close the browser. When I open it is at page 1 again. If I then press next to page 7 as the forum/comic has moved on, read the latest and then maybe close the browser a day later, on re-opening it will open to either 1 or 3.

This is across 3 firefox installations, ON 3 PCs.

I just noticed that Open Tabs were set to sync but I actually have no tab crossover between the browsers and they don't restore unless you choose to being them over so each browser with a particular tab open should update that one on re-open, not take it from an instance that does not have that tab open.

Anyway, it is really starting to pee me of as when I re-open my home instance it is not opening Cyanide and Happiness about 30-40 commics behind the last one read.

It all worked perfectly before Quantum and none of my settings have changed.

Cheers,

Rob.

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.

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!

Hi there I had a Firefox session of 30 tabs open this morning, some running for several weeks. When restarting I opened the main home page plus a page about darts (which i dont even like) - and accidentally closed it again before restoring the session.

Upon reopening and attempting the usual 'restore previous session' it now thinks the previous session is the one with just the homepage and the darts story - not my orignial 30 tabs. 

How do I restore the 30 tabs!? Surely there must be a way. I'm not very firefox savy so haven't tried renaming files etc.

Sometimes when power to my machine is cut Firefox does not restore the previous session. Missed to check the restore file on the primary profile, it was still there on the secondary so I just restored it there. Last time this problem came up (29, Australis Update) it was independent of profile but occurred randomly on either of them. From what I remember on any other crash (freeze, kill task) restore works fine, it's just on hard crash that it doesn't.
