There should be a way.

A way = An option if enabled, this happens:

The browser starts to remember the state of the tab he/she was in.

For example, if I am learning by watching "How to build a portfolio website?" video on YouTube or some website in FullScreen, then if I switch to next tab pressing "Crtl + Tab", where I can see my portfolio website which I am editing from VS Code realtime. Now if I press "Ctrl + Tab" again, I want to see my YouTube video in same way, it was left before (i.e FullScreen).

Please, for the love of God, give students like us this functionality where students are not annoyed by having to go to fullscreen again and again.

(If you don't understand what I am trying to say then, do watch see this: https://imgur.com/a/yjibtLG )

Remember the state of fullscreen-ness, your highness. It's a painful process to repeat every single time.

Students learn millions of things every single time through the internet these days. The total amount of time that we save by providing this option is just mindblowing.

Let save time. Let make Firefox intelligent. Pass this idea at least.

There should be some sort of option in about:config where the browser starts to remember the state of Fullscreen videos especially when he/she does this by pressing Ctrl + Tab.

I have Tweetdeck in a pinned tab. There are a lot of columns, which I navigate by swiping left/right on my Magic Mouse. When I swipe to the left, to return to the first column, it often swipes a little bit too far and Firefox interprets that as a request to "back arrow" to the previous page, which is my Firefox home screen.

Is there any way to disable this behavior, so that a long left swipe will move the screen all the way to the left edge and stop there, without going all the way back to the Firefox home screen?

Hi.

Maybe I havent yet got used to the new tabs, and with time it will be fine, but currently my experience is rather annoying. Yeah, sorry, it sounds silly to use "annoying" as an argument, ...but:

# Ideological issues:

  • Why would you completely change from conventional UI at all, without even any pros in the new solution!? E.g., the only reason why most text editing tools share the same interface over decades is the fact that "most text editing tools share this interface". Thus it is apriory intuitive to use. Some people may use something like Vim, ...but then thay install Vim. And you wount appreciate to get your favorite Notepad turning into something like Vim (you will be simply annoyed due to broken ituition (lets ignore here the pros of Vim)).
  • If I remember correctly, in previous versions tabs were hidden (unless you scroll upwards), so most of the time thay didn't block the view ...so what is the reason/purpose of moving them away from the top pannel to begin with? ...here I must mention that I use it on tablet (and I dont have a smartphone to check it out there), and I can believe that it is easier to navigate in the new vertical layout compared to the horisontal one (if people prefer to hold the phone in vertical orientation; I dont know, seriously). But still, why wouldnt you just accomplishe old interface with that small square button to open the new tabs interface, rather than replacing it completely?
  • What is the point of Collections? ...they are Bookmarks?

# Real issue:

  • When I open tabs being on the, e.g., second page counting from the end(or top in that vertical layout), and I scroll upward to find the next tab (I have to scroll since the topmost visible tab in that layout is the current tab) the whole widget (the box with the list of tabs) gets collapsed by half (so that the top of the widget is at the middle of the screen). It seems like another silly complain, but when you need to switch between a few latest tabs often, you'll be ready to smash you device with the wall. Note: maybe you need to open many tabs to reproduce it.

I love Firefox, and Im not going to switch from it in any case. I just hope to help you in this strange way (...also it is not the most efficient one).

Best Regards, Ivan

I got updated to the new Firefox for Android on my 10" tablet, and it seems the old tab bar I had in the "tablet experience" variant of the old interface is gone. And it seems there's no way to get it back? The help page on tab management makes no mention of it, only talking about the phone interface "tab tray". Is there really no way to get the traditional tab bar on a tablet with the new Firefox for Android?

I have verified that the settings are to open links in a new tab but they still open in a new window and the new window has tabs I previously closed. This problem arose after Microsoft did an update to Windows 10 in which my default browser (Firefox) was replaced with Edge. When I reset Firefox as my default the problem appeared. Prior to the update links opened in a new tab as I intended.

Is it possible to have several PiPs running simultaneously in separate 'windows'?

The PiP view is actually really useful just for losing all the window decorations - panels, info/status/bookmark/title/tab bars etc.

It would be useful to be able to pop out two, three or more different videos (e.g. multiple youtube videos) to arrange them around the screen with optimal scaling/space usage to fit them all in.

The title basically says it all already. In the documentation of the new tab page it tells you how to remove them, but not how to add them. There should be a way however. For some reason, the pocket suggestions disappeared from my new tab page, and I haven't found a way to get them back. I know from another machine that under settings there should be a check box that you can tick to enable or disable pocket suggestions on the new tab page, but on the system in question, this option is simply not there. How to fix?

using the CTRL+TAB to show open thumbnails tabs visually is a great feature firefox have over other browsers and what encouraged me to leave chrome. have only 6 inst very effective - this needs to be dynamic (for at least 10-15 tabs) and going over the web is seems a lot of people asked this feature.

Is there a way to change this? if not where can I ask a feature request?

Tried it with and without these running and FF fails to save my tabs, regardless of shutting down the browser or the OS. This does not occur on Win10 or my Linux distros. I've been trawling forums and help pages and the Interweb casually for weeks now, without success, but getting quite frustrated now; so posting this as a last resort. Thanks in advance of any suggestions.

All the thumbnails except for the starting page are blank when restarting the browser. I need to click on each and every tab to make the thumbnails show.

Is there a way to change this? It drives me up the wall, especially when having to restart multiple times -which happens a lot due to several factors. I have vision problems and need the thumbs to show to find my way around quickly.

Had a browser crash while changing watching a sports program online. Using FF v79 on W7. I want to change the tabs to a more rounded look. I had a theme installed that did this, a light weight theme. Since the crash I can no longer find the theme to install. The crash folder did nothing to restore these rounded tabs.

As usual, the latest Windows 10 update has caused a few annoying issues. One is that whenever I share something to Facebook from an external site like a newspaper, after the share popup has disappeared I am left with a completely empty tab. Is there any way of stopping this happening? I'm not an expert and don't feel confident about messing with codes, so a simple fix would be appreciated. I've added the troubleshooting information as offered on this page, but have no idea whether this would be helpful!
