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.

I use the Feedbro-Addon, which creates an own tab. Its url is: moz-extension://285d678c-ecb3-4003-923d-835fc9d8e0bc/reader.html

If I use it as a normal tab (instead of a pinned tab) ... it survives a Firefox restart. But if I use it as a pinned tab (which I want) ... it disappears after a Firefox restart.

I suppose it has to do with it being an addon-page instead of a "normal" page.

Is there a way to make it stay permanently pinned?

I have custom URL's set when opening my homepage. For the last few weeks, Firefox has been opening tabs from the last session. I've checked the URL's and they are correct in the settings but for some reason they're not loading properly.

These are the correct URL's in the setting page. https://www.etsy.com/your/shops/UiJewelryMaui/tools/listings/state:sold_out,sort:sold_out_date,stats:true|https://www.etsy.com/messages?ref=seller-platform-mcnav|https://www.shopify.com/|https://maui.clareityiam.net/idp/login|https://outlook.office.com/mail/|https://calendar.google.com/calendar/u/0/r?pli=1|https://www.microsoft365.com/?auth=2|https://www.canva.com/|https://hawaii.infinitecampus.org/campus/portal/parents/hawaii.jsp|https://mauinews.org/pub920.htm|https://www.mauicounty.gov/Bids.aspx?CatID=19|https://hiepro.ehawaii.gov/vendor-dashboard.html|https://us2.admin.mailchimp.com/campaigns?ref=plums_nav&_ga=2.43380451.756894218.1698551103-1299448220.1698551096#f_bucket:recent;t:campaigns-list|https://hawaiicovid19.com/

However, the pages that load at start up are not these URL's, instead they're opening with the ones in the photo I provided. How do I fix this or do I need to select a different default browser?

Since one of the last updates the behaviour for the tab re-sizing got messed up.

When there are only a few tabs with full size, those as well as the additional plus icon is shown. But when there are more tabs and they are re-sized, then the right side gets cut off. First the new tab icon dissapears and then also the last tab get's cut off.

I attached a screenshot with three firefox browser windows showing the problem, as well as a forth one with only 3 tabs open, which are shown in full size including the new tab icon.

This is a new problem as the tab resizinng and the new tab icon used to work perfectly fine no matter how many tabs were opened.

If you have multiple tabs open and you hit Ctrl-T to open a new one, it opens it at the end of the tabs, and the cursor focus moves to the URL bar so you can start typing in an address/search.

If you right-click on any of those tabs, it opens a new tab to the right of that tab, instead of at the end (which is what I want, as right-clicking on a specific one to open a new tab, to me, means you are linking those tabs in layout and want them together) BUT the cursor focus DOES NOT move to the URL bar.

This seems pretty counter-intuitive, and means that so many times I right-click, Open New Tab, and start typing a URL and then see that I have to stop typing, click in the URL bar, and start typing all over again.

Is there an about:config to force the focus to the URL bar, or is this a bug? If there's no setting for this, I would definitely consider this a bug because you have 2 different behaviors for New Tabs.

Hi all,

I've read a bit before, and it seems to be impossible to get the tabs available directly (FF Android), as it used to be : a real pitty in my opinion (I did tried to get used to the new Firefox, but really, I am wasting my time to switch on my many "tabs") I guess that this option won't be available again?

Here is my additional question then : how to switch between tabs in one click, or how to a dedicated close a tab in 1 click? - yes, I know that I can swipe left of right, nice feature, but it doesn t do the job efficiently - I know too the "tab" menu but it means at minimum 2 clicks

I've been using ff almost since the beginning as default browser, but since the tabs had been suppressed , I am less and less on my tablets. Let's hope now you are not planning to perform the same with FF for pc...

PS : as "tabs" are not any more tabs (don't trust me, just search "tabs for paperwork" and compare with the so called "tabs" now in FF), I strongly suggest that you rename your feature to something else)

PS2 : really sorry if my post appears a bit angrier, i mean no offense as I do recognize the amazing work whic had been performed along al those years, but seriously, suppressing basics stuff is the worst idea (it reminds me a bit opera, which used to be outdated, but which I am using again now as they improved a lot, and thanks to the FF no tabs policy)

Hi, I'm using the latest Firefox on a Windows 10 Dell laptop. Typically I have a lot of tabs open - 500+ sometimes. When I think this number of open tabs is getting absurdly large I do some housekeeping and close tabs individually that I do not currently need. Those I might want later I bookmark and then close. When I shutdown my computer I close Firefox first When I close Firefox I get the message "closing 5xx tabs". If there is an option I confirm. When I start my computer again, and then start Firefox, all of the previously open tabs are restored, which is awesome. Less awesome is that all the "housekeeping" individually closed tabs (which were not open when I shut down Firefox) are also restored. How do I prevent these individually closed tabs reopening while still having the tabs which were open at shutdown restored?

Thanks so much.

In my location, my only option for internet access is a mobile hotspot with limited data. Consequently, I am always mindful of my data usage when using my laptop. Despite primarily browsing static pages, email, and other low-data activities, I often find my data usage higher than anticipated. The main culprit comes to mind to be videos embedded in news articles. Sometimes, with multiple tabs open, I switch to an inactive tab only to find a video playing. Although I've configured my Firefox preferences not to autoplay videos, it seems that YouTube videos still override these settings.

So, my question is, when a tab is inactive, does Firefox stop all data transfer for that tab in the background? And if not, what are the solutions to stop any background data other than continually closing all tabs?


Also, any suggestions on this topic are appreciated, especially from and to users who also live in remote areas without fiber, DSL, etc.

Like: set a number of memory usage(for example 256000KB),when reach this number trigger the "minimize memory usage".Then it will be like "auto minimize memory usage". Or,you can just set an UI button on the toolbar to trigger "minimize memory usage".

If I have many tabs open, and pull one away, instead of the previous tab saying in focus, it clicks to a different tab.

If I have 5 tabs open:

  4. Tab 4
  5. Tab 5

I'm focused on Tab 3. If I pull Tab 5 away, it snaps me into Tab 4 even though I was previously on a different tab.

Good morning, There are multiple questions. 1. Now everytime I click on a link in an article it opens a completely different page of firefox instead of just making a tab on the line with all the other tabs. It also loads that new page half way off the screen on the right hand side and I have to drag it over, open it full sized and then screw around with cutting and pasting the url into a new tab on the old firefox page. How do I stop it from doing this? It's realllllly annoying.

2. It is screwing up some of my graphics by putting horizontal lines into the picutres to where you can't view it. Specifically on jigsaws from jigsawplanet.com. I work on a gaming site and this really impacts my ability to do my job (or have fun).

3. One one particular site HEXrpg.com, I set my view at 120% and every page I go it it reverts it back to 100%. This did NOT used to happen and it only seems to be happening on that particular site..... However, it could be on other sites as I've had to set my entire computer to 120% now so I can read the posts on that one site and now everything is too big for my screens in the other sites.

I don't know what you guys were trying to do, but whatever it was, can you please put it back to the way it was before this last (possibly last 2) updates. If not I'm going to have to switch to Edge or Chrome and I really don't want to have to do this because I've been with Firefox forever. HELP!?! Deborah DeVane

Hello,

Recently Firefox tends to start autoplaying a YouTube video if I am on the tab.

Before it would not play the video if i am on the tab unless I physically press play.

It still works if I open a YouTube video in a tab that is not active, it will not autoplay, but as soon as I hover over and click on that tab it will start playing, however I do not want this to happen, I want it to pretty much always be autoplay blocked regardless if tab is active or not and I want to physically press play in order for it to start.

How to revert it to that state?

My block audio and video setting in firefox is already turned on, not sure what to do, pretty sure I did nothing on my end.

Right now I have to use extension called "disable autoplay" just to get by.

Thanks guys!
