I think it was update, my pc restarted. But it usually asks weird. I lost all windows and all tabs. Yet in library/history under restore windows, there is nothing! There was some json file, from which you could get tabs. I tried it last time and it didn't work. Also firefox wasn't even running at that time and previously i had all windows and tabs... Are you kidding me???

I lost like hundreds of important tabs.... Aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa............

Hi,

I just downloaded Firefox on my new PC (laptop) but for an unknown reason opening a link in a new tab doesn't work. Opening a link in a new window doesn't work either, and opening the link in a new private window does not work either. It is getting frustrating to say the least, as I've never encountered this problem before and I have no idea what to do. :)

Thank you kindly in advance for your help!

Using 83.1.0. I have it configured such that whenever I start the browser, it starts in private browsing mode. It always has this explanation of what private browsing is about. I can't tell it to stop showing that text, which I don't need to see any longer. And I can't see the home page. If I go to non-private mode, there is the home page. However, I am unable to click on anything in the home page and have it open in a private tab. It always opens in a non-private tab.

Please fix the browser so that I can see the home page in private browsing mode, and if I click on a link on the home page, it will open in a private tab, too.

For last few weeks whenever I open a new web browser in firefox the screen display now open slightly off screen with the top having moved up (and also a little to the right) making the scroll bar barely visible and tabs not visible. I can grab and move sometimes but it has become a consistent problem and I do not know why. Nothing has changed that I am aware of. How can this issue be fixed? Thank you

I HAVE SYSTEM RESTORE ON MY FIREFOX. When I purposely restarted my computer, for an unknown reason, a session came up but my previous session did not automatically restore as usually it does. I did something in that window and was thinking about something else and deleted it, ie: the session. OH S _ _ _! Just lost my restore previous session opportunity..... I opened another session (and restore previous session was grayed - not available) and have not closed my session nor re-started since. Is there any other way to go back and recover my lost session windows and tabs? .... not from the previous session that I accidentally closed, but from the session before that? Thanks in advance.

When I open a link in a New Tab, Firefox continually returns a blank page. (Previously, Firefox would happily open up to 10 or more Tabs for reading later, without batting an eyelid)

Firefox even declined to open my Home Page a short while ago.

The only extension I am using is Adblock Plus, and even disabling it, or restarting in Safe Mode, makes no difference.

I am using Firefox release 83.0 - and I've tried turning off Hardware Acceleration - again, no difference.

Any help/advice much appreciated Robin

Hi there

since a few weeks it happens daily that by accident I transfer a tab into a new firefox window obviously by moving/clicking the mouse quickly in a way that leads to this new window. then I need to copy the email adress, close the new window and make in the original window again a new tab and paste it there and place it on the right spot. not really handy... not sure what changed in firefox since this did not happen in the past. did there change sth or how better said how can I avoid that this is happening, can I lock tabs that they will not get a new window. does someone know this problem?

Firefox for Android used to have the built in feature where when starting up, it would show the last open tab, just like Chrome for Android. Currently, it seems to open a new tab and put you at the selection page.

I now routinely end up with many tabs since any searches are done automatically in a new tab, since reusing a previous tab now takes several taps. It's also frustrating if I accidentally close the app to have to navigate to the tabs and find it rather than just having it be there.

It would be nice to have a setting to just switch to the previously opened tab on startup. If there is a setting for it, sorry I missed it and please disregard everything.

Thanks!

Firefox introduced collections and removed the grid view with the ability to reorder tabs, which was one of the advantages of FF over Chrome. Honestly, I don't understand why collections are better than bookmarks. But at the time, Google introduced a grid with tab groups in Chrome. Thus, the previous win turned into a losing point in the competition with Chrome. Is Firefox planning to return the grid view?
