Dear folks-- I am working on several large, complicated research projects with a lot of moving parts and many technical aspects that I barely understand. When I raise a question, I normally open a bunch of tabs to papers, stackexchange sites, etc. I usually don’t end up with an unambiguous answer in a single session. I close the tabs that appear not to be useful, and leave the others open. So open tabs represent unfinished tasks to which I expect to return. Every time I try to close a bunch of tabs, I find unfinished tasks that still require research. I pretty much always end up creating more tabs than I close. And at some point it becomes easier to just search again than to find the open tabs I remember. I have tried to use open windows as sort of like thematic groups, with a little success. I work with three big monitors, and it is normal for me to have four or five Firefox windows open, each with its own tab set (all this under MS-Windows 10).

I just accidentally hit close and was asked if I was sure I wanted to close 4643 tabs. Yikes!

This isn’t getting out of hand, it's already out of hand. However, my tabs represent a summary and history of about six years of research. I want to keep them. But I don’t want to keep them like this.

I see that there are tab management capabilities built into Firefox that I have not been using. I also see that there are multiple extensions that offer additional capabilities. However I am more afraid than probably makes sense of adopting a solution that I do not fully understand, and either losing my tabs through inadvertence, or spending weeks organizing them under a new system only to discover that it lacks some crucial capability that I didn’t think to check for.

So I throw myself on the mercy of you, the wonderful Firefox help team, both volunteer and professional. I have tried to imagine a system that would let me organize my 4000+tabs with a sane amount of time and effort. I have produced a list of features that I think would let me do that. I would like to know if I can do all these things, either with native Firefox, or with Firefox and at most one additional add-on extension. Please forgive me if I am not using the proper terminology. I’ll try to be as clear as I can about the capabilities I am looking for.

1. Select multiple tabs at once and assign them to a new or existing tab group. 2. Name a group, have the name be visible in the tab bar, and assign a distinctive appearance to all the tabs in that group (maybe by color). 3. Collapse a group to one tab and reopen the tab to the group quickly and easily. 4. Save and close a tab group, and reopen it from some menu of saved tab groups. Save and close should eliminate the resource demand of the closed tab group. Collapse need not.

I could live with (4) without (3), provided the menu of saved groups has good visual design to remind me of what is there.

5. Convert an open window to a single tab group (if it is not already subdivided into groups). 6A. Name and save a window containing multiple tab groups. Close a single window. Open a closed named window, recreating the tab groups it contained. 6B. Alternatively, allow grouping tab groups into supergroups, name and save the supergroup, close and open supergroups, and convert a window containing tab groups into a supergroup. 7. Open any saved group in any open window. 8. All the instances of saving previously described should survive computer crashes, closure of an individual window, and closure of Firefox. Maybe sync to some cloud location? It is OK if closure of Firefox or a Firefox window throws away the tabs provided you get a warning and an opportunity to save, or provided that tab groups are periodically autosaved by default.

I really want something like all the capabilities described above, though I would accept equivalent functionality arranged in different categories than I have used. Here are three more that I regard as nice-to-have rather than must-have: 9. Sync my tabs with my back-up computer, another MS-Windows box with a lot of RAM. 10. Sync my tabs with my Android phone and tablet. 11. Multiple supergroup grouping layers.

I know I’m asking for a lot, but I really do think this is roughly the feature set required to maintain a large collection of tabs and tab groups across multiple Firefox windows. So I hope and believe that time invested in answering this question would be helpful to others similarly (if less extremely) situated, and perhaps to tab management extension designers as well.

Thanks! I look forward to hearing from you.

Hi,

Has anyone encountered random disappearing of the tool bar? Most of the time I have the browser in full-screen so I can't move it, while the top part disappears. I don't have access to the tabs, settings, address bar, bookmarks etc. I noticed that it first started happening this week, and again today, after the update. I even checked for malware/viruses but nothing was detected. It's definitely not a problem with the monitor/screen, as I can move windows on top of the white area without any issues.

For ages now I have been using about:config to stop the URL bar becoming bigger when you click it in (see attached image), but my Firefox automatically updated yesterday and I no longer have the option to stop this from happening. As well as becoming bigger when you click in it, the thing I find most annoying is that it automatically enlarges and flashes the cursor in the search bar when you click the new tab button, which I don't want as I mostly open a new tab to use the bookmark bar so have no need of the search bar at the point. Is there any way to stop this happening, please? I've been through loads of the options on about:config that used to work but seemingly no longer! I find it such a nuisance and just want it gone - any ideas?

Hi

I have set Enhanced Tracking Protection to Strict. Some sites may throw you out if you select "I do not accept" (cookies). Some sites make a statement along the lines "By using our service you are deemed to have accepted cookies". If in the former case I select "accept" or in the latter continue to use the site, would that override the Firefox "Strict" setting or would the Firefox Strict setting still block cookies etc?

My apologies if this is already answered elsewhere. I have looked at the help pages but much of this stuff is over my head.

Hi, Firefox rearranged my options/settings, it's probably easy to set up,but I do not know how to do it. To the point. I searches for something in browser, I click on the link ...and a new tab opens for me. Now browsing the internet, I have a million open and unnecessary tabs. I DON'T LIKE IT. How can i set it up as i had before i.e. clicking on the link, the page opened in the same tab and window??? I could use the buttons: go back to the previous page, or go to the next page.

I am experiencing a Captcha problem on numerous websites. For example sending an email or query on a website where it is provided to do so under the Contact Us tab. I would type everything, hit submit, and the first notice that Captcha was required is the alert to say Captcha or reCaptcha has not been recognized (or other wording to that effect). Is it possible that the add-on from Firefox for this app is causing the problem on my Windows 10 desktop computer.

I created a 2nd profile for use at work. Initially my new profile came up with my personal bookmarks toolbar - which I use a lot. I assumed (bad idea) this was a copy and that I could edit it and modify it for work. It turned out that I was changing bookmarks toolbar for both profiles. I was hoping to use two different bookmarks toolbars one for each profile.

If my assumption was correct and I should be able to have independent profiles where did I go wrong?

When I updated to the latest version of Firefox (83.0), I noticed that the process searching with the address bar had changed a bit. Before the update I would type text into the address bar, click one of the search buttons, and then see the results right away. Now I have to type text into the address bar, click one of the search buttons, and then press <ENTER>. How can I get the previous behavior back? Those buttons along the address bar drop-down are called one-click search buttons for a reason.

So, my mouse has thumb buttons, when I press them the browser either goes back a page or forward. When I play a Youtube video in full screen and press the 'Back-Button' it should load the youtube main page, the address bar shows youtube.com, but it just reloads the video I was playing. I think this has somethig to do with cashing, but I'm not an expert in that field.

I want to change text encoding so it defaults to Unicode. If I use the [alt] key then the View tab I can change it from Western but it reverts back after closing the page. Sometimes that does not work because the Text Encoding option in the View tab is greyed out. The About Firefox window says I am up to date with 83.0 (64bit).

Prior to the release of update 78 I used to be able to click on the address bar and it would bring up my top 20 or so site. I don't know why, but this extremely easy to use and accessible feature was removed. We are now on update 83 and the problem has only gotten worse. I've attached 2 pics in an attempt to showcase this tragedy that Firefox has created. I don't understand why I'm limited to the number of sites in the dropdown. Worse yet, only 1 of my most frequent sites are listed in the 6 sites I can choose from.

If you're attempted to make things easier for me, you've utterly failed... miserably! Also, not only am I limited to sites I DON'T use, I now have "Sponsored" web sites. GET OUT OF HERE WITH THIS NONSENSE! I now have 8 site to choose from, 1 of which I use. Remember, I use up to 20 web sites per shift so Firefox showing me 7 I don't use is extremely time consuming and frustrating. If only I could pick from my top 20 sites, like I could since I started using Firefox more than 15 years ago, then perhaps 2 "Sponsored" sites at the bottom of my list wouldn't be such a bad thing. Remember the good ole days when Firefox was customizable.

I understand that SPACEBAR is now the way for me to view my most frequent websites and that is a longer list and more accurate that the initial dropdown. Why do I have to click spacebar? This is unnecessary. Is there a way to make this spacebar view the default dropdown view when I click on the address bar?

Lastly, since, update 78 I have made several attempts to remove the "Search with..." at the top of the address bar. Can someone please come up with a viable option for me to move this redundant feature? The address bar itself can perform searches. I have the default search bar clipped into my browser. That's 2 places I can search... I don't need a 3rd search option in a dropdown that already takes me to where I want to go.

I swear, it's like no one over at Firefox even cares about the users anymore they just keep making changes that limit options and give us no recourse to correct their "fixes" that break my experience and productivity.

So I have a dual monitor set up. It flickers on my main monitor whenever I do something that causes movement. For example hovering over tiles for youtube videos I can select, switching tabs, selecting the address bar, etc. But on my secondary monitor this issue doesn't exist (and I've tried to replicate it). I have tried the same actions and websites on google chrome on my main monitor to see if I can recreate it and narrow it down to a monitor problem however I couldn't get the flickering to occur once on chrome on my main monitor. If I place firefox in a neutral position (split between both monitors) and create the flickering it only flickers on the main one. This happens when the window isn't taking up the whole screen as well.

My main monitor is 1440p, 165 hz, gysnc, my secondary is 1080p 60hz. Any idea what the issue is?
