As a default, the new tabs screen should be blank, just like it always was.

I do not want a work around, or to have to mess with this.

I DO NOT want to see google, or any other product, showing up by default when i open a new tab.

This feels like the Microsoft strong arm tactics of the late 1990s. If I want to use google I will...BUT I DO NOT WANT IT FORCED ON ME!!! I trusted Firefox and allowed their updates and today they abused my trust by trying to shove products down my throat. I am furious.

Google seems to be the new evil empire, just like Microsoft used to be....

"MEET THE NEW BOSS, SAME AS THE OLD BOSS".

It looks like it is time to find a new browser, it looks like Firefox has sold out to Google, this is sad day.

I do not want a work around, I want new tabs and windows blank by default.

I hope this is fixed in the next day or so, otherwise I switch to the new browser my friend told me I should be using anyway.... JUST LIKE WHEN I LEFT INTERNET EXPLORER LONG AGO.... AND I NEVER LOOKED BACK and I have never opened IE again.

Please don't make me reboot my whole system and clean it all out.... I would rather stick with Firefox, but you need to fix this. I need to be able to trust you.

I don't know when this started, probably a few versions ago, but it is driving me mad! And before you ask, I already checked about:config and both warning options are true. After searching a bit, I have found that the cause of this may be that I also have "Show my windows and tabs from last time" selected. Are these two options really incompatible, or is this just a common bug? If they are, is this by design? I close Firefox on accident all the time because Windows does not always automatically set the most recent or top-most window as active, and it is very annoying to have to wait for xmarks to sync when I don't even want to close FF in the first place. If there is currently no way to have firefox warn before closing and restore your tabs, are there any easy work arounds or addons that solve this? Sorry about all the questions but this is so frustrating.

Using FF 29.0 or 29.0.1, session storage seem badly broken.

All commands for restoring previous sessions are disabled (whether or not they are from an extension), and even when the browser gets restarted (for example when an extension is installed or updated) all the sessions get lost: I click Restart in the extensions tab with 10 different tabs opened, and the restarted Firefox window contains NOTHING but the default startup page (on which, by the way, the search box doesn't work at all).

Before someone asks, I've already tried all the standard suggestions:

1) Tried with a new empty profile with NO extension at all 2) Tried deleting ALL profile info, uninstalling FF, then reinstalling and using the default empty profile with NO extensions whatsoever

And the problem is still there: session storage does not function (sessionstore.js doesn't get created).

The only thing that solved the problem was reverting back to FF 28, which I have done.

(By the way, this bug led me to discover another thing which I consider a total ergonomic failure: in FF28 the "check for updates" button in the about dialog MUST be called in another way: this button DOES NOT check for updates, it INSTALLS updates! In fact, if clicked, it does not check and tell me if a new version is available: if the new version is available, having clicked "check" is interpreted as "Download and immediately install the update", and NOTHING can be done to stop this when clicked; even closing FF results in the updated version being installed as soon as downloaded, and the only way to get back to the previous version is to download the specific installed from mozilla and reinstall it! This is NOT a version check, this is a forced update a la M$!)

Any other suggestion form the experts?

Some resources online mention setting warnOnRestart to "true," but there is no such option. When I quit with CMD+Q or through the Firefox menu, there is no warning before quitting and Firefox just quits even when I have multiple tabs open. I have restarted both Firefox and my Macbook after changing these settings. I would appreciate if anyone knows of a way to get Firefox 57 on macOS to warn before quitting.

This is not so much a question, as an answer that some people desperately need.

Ever since Version 34, Firefox has done a superb job of restoring the tabs that the user has created, either on restarting Firefox (if that option is chosen) or on request.

The details of how to restore tabs are covered in Firefox's basic help online, and even how to deal with several crashes in a row (such as in an addon) ruin the normal backup file are also well explained.

However, today I accidentally pressed Alt+F4 twice on my poorly-designed keyboard and closed my main window, with 93 tabs, and another Firefox window as well. I'm not sure this is exactly what happened, but I lost all 93 of my tabs.

I read many of the postings in which people give various suggestions, but none worked. Every time I restored a version of the sessionstore.js file I saw the same lonely empty tab. Restoring prefs.js did nothing, and neither did making changes in the internal configuration constants.

I tried refreshing/resetting Firefox (which preserves bookmarks), but I still couldn't restore the tabs. It was now clear that the problem was in sessionstore.js (and all its backups) for sure.

I'm writing this for people who must restore their windows or tabs, and don't mind getting technical about it. That was my situation.

The solution was to realize that the sessionstore.js file contains JSON code, which is an efficient way to represent integers and strings arranged in a tree structure.

I figured there must be a JSON editor somewhere, and it turns out there is a great one available online, at www.jsoneditoronline.org . It can read a file on your computer, edit it, then save it back on your computer.

As soon as I viewed sessionstore.js in the editor, it was obvious how easy this was going to be. The top level of the tree is understandable. I simply grabbed the data representing the window with 93 tabs, and dragged it from the list of closed Firefox windows to the list of open windows. This automatically moved the history of each tab, and even the strings entered into forms.

After copying sessionstore.js back to the Firefox profile, I started Firefox one more time. The playing of Pandora signalled that my tabs were back and functioning once again.

Now, editing JSON code is not something that everyone is ready for. And your problem might not be reflected in the JSON tree so simply. But, for technical-minded people who don't want to lose their tabs or windows to a mistake or a crash, this technique can be just what's needed when everything else fails.

Environment: MAC OSX 10.9.5 Firefox 32.0.3

Firefox keeps consuming lot of memory when you keep refreshing a tab after an interval.

I opened a single tab in my firefox and logged into my gmail account on that. At this stage the memory consumption was about 400MB. I refreshed the page after 10 seconds and it went to 580MB. Again i refreshed after 10 seconds and this time it was 690MB. Finally, when i refreshed 3rd time after 10 seconds, it was showing as 800MB.

Nothing was changed on the page (no new email, chat conversation, etc. nothing). Some how i feel that the firefox is not doing a good job at garbage collection. I tested this use case with lot of other applications and websites and got the similar result. Other browsers like Google chrome, safari, etc. they just work fine.

For one on of my application with three tabs open, the firefox literally crashed after the high memory consumption (around 2GB).

Can someone tell me if this is a known issue in firefox? and is firefox planning to fix it? Right now, is there any workaround or fix for this?

The "Firefox is already running, but is not responding" is really hostile and unhelpful. I don't want to mess with multiple Firefox profiles. I want to record the local file in the active Firefox history.

Just add the local file in new tab on the Firefox that is already active. Should work like click a bookmark in firefox, so why not treat this the same way? Needless to say, that this is what Chrome does.

Would be okay if Firefox pops up a prompt like "do you want to open the local file in a new tab or window?"
