Windows 7x64 desktop PC, FF 90.0(64), Startup set to 'restore previous session'.

When researching subjects I can often run with 60 - 80 tabs open. Frequently, if I take time out to do some other pressing task (in response to email etc.) and that task opens a new window, sometimes closing my main window without my knowledge, this appears to cause a problem for FF in that if the new window is closed after I've finished the task and now find that my main window has already been closed, the restore tabs procedure restores the last session tabs and appears to have dumped my main session tabs. As you will readily understand, this makes it a long drawn out problem trying to restore my working point from history when I can't remember exactly which tabs were still open or which page I had landed on. I do hope you follow all that. My question is how can I prevent this from messing me up again in future? Is there a way to retain session details so I can select them again after other windows have been opened and closed? Can you please avoid techie answers cos' they'll be over my head ;-), Thanks in advance.

Hi,

I know this is been asked and discussed multiple times over the years. But the current [CTRL+TAB] and [CTRL+PGUP/PGDOWN] are less that optimum for people who use Mac's.

We like to use CMD+[CTRL/SHIFT]+Left/Right. If there would a menu item for the two operations then it's quite easily do do via keyboard settings. But as that has been removed we're stuck with something which doesn't really work on notebook as there aren't any PGUP/PGDOWN keys ....

Please make it programmable or add the "Next Tab..." and "Previous Tab..." back to the Window menu.

Cheers.

Hallo,

ich bin entsetzt nach der neuen Version.

Wie bekomme ich die TABs von der Taskleiste wieder nach oben unter die Lesezeichen und vor allen stört mich, dass nur der TAB sichbar ist, der im Zugriff ist.

Ich sehe nicht mehr wie viele TABs geöffnet sind bzw. ich kann nicht gezielt meinen Wunsch-TAB anklicken, sondern mich mit >Strg< und >Tab< zum richtigen klicken.

Ein angehefteter TAB unten links, no go, wir lesen ja nicht von unten nach oben.

Meine alte USERChrome.css funktioniert nicht mehr und im WWW finde ich nichts was hilft.

Für Eure Hilfe vielen Dank im Voraus.

For some reason, for the past few months, every now and then when I open Firefox, all of my tabs have been closed, and the only tab that opens is the Bing search page. It's become more regular lately, happening every Monday. I can't use the restore tabs function for some reason, either. Whenever this happens, Bing also becomes my default search engine, and I have to switch it back over to Google. Is there any way to stop this? It's driving me nuts. Thanks!

When I open a new tab, Firefox shows Google search in a bar in the middle of the page. If I try searching in it, it starts searching in address bar instead with a black background and white script. How do I stop that and search in the Google bar? Settings does not give an option to stop this new annoying "feature". Also, why can't new tab go to my home page instead (which is Google advanced search)?

Running Windows 10 64 bit with the latest updates on Firefox of 89.0.2. I cannot open a new tab to the google search bar by just opening a new tab. It defaults to showing a google search bar, but Firefox will not allow me to type into it. I am constantly redirected to the address bar to write my google searches or to a separate "search" in the same address bar, depending on which option I selected in settings.

I only have two options in Settings: 1) Use the address bar for search and navigation or 2) Add search bar in toolbar. I have Google set as my search engine.

Your previous version of Firefox did allow me to do exactly what I wanted. Now I cannot.

Under "New Tab" you only allow for 2 selections; Firefox home or a blank page, the latter of which does not show the personalized "rows". If you allowed a Google option there, it might resolve my problem.

I attached a picture of my new tab; it shows the search bar for Google, but it now says "Firefox" where it use to have the ever changing "Google" Logo. I do not mind the Firefox logo, but I seriously am upset that I am forced to type searches in the address bar. Who does that?

Furthermore, by forcing me to type in the address bar, its much harder to see what I am typing and allow for me to make corrections. Once I hit enter, it sends me to a typical Google search page, where I can then make changes, but this seems like an annoying step.

Am I missing something, some setting someplace where I can type in the search bar I indicated on my attachment?

On a side note: Thank you for adding a "Personalize" button on a new tab. It now allows me to add rows for shortcuts. Before I had to:

1. Load about:config?filter=browser.newtabpage.activity-stream.topSitesRows in the Firefox address bar. 2. Double-click on the preference browser.newtabpage.activity-stream.topSitesRows and change its value to the desired number of rows and click ok. 3. Check the New Tab Page to see the change right away and modify the number of rows accordingly if needed.

Which I technically have yet to change, because I prefer more than the 4 row limit you set. You will see those shortcuts in the attachment for the new tab.

Thank you for your time. Be safe and have a good day. :)

With the new "tab line", all the tab-line looks the same across multiple Firefox windows: they have the same background color, and the only difference is that those "inactive windows" shall have tab-names in a slightly fainted color.

Attached is a screenshot with a "custom theme", as configured here: https://color.firefox.com/?theme=XQAAAAIWAQAAAAAAAABBKYhm849SCia2CaaEGccwS-xMDPsqufDOWr6IhCp9RnjnsdP9GNu2SjSQBIXJelHlUb_p3iV0Tk_tp5WixtO7xQnun54TM0zzonAd6w0T64epRIX-MPh_WdfDW_w-yhADmUgnb68gPKrs8qenrbJlNLa8ExfeSsKaaHfQ-9sW8GyKyObiSlDh9ijHuiE5lJEM3vAAjTa46EQ7ytUeVh0LL3__uhviAA

Please advise if I am missing something super simple to configure: basically, I'd like to apply a different background color when the Firefox window is inactive. (The Solarized dark theme does part of the job, by leaving an noticeable boarder when the Firefox window is not maximized.)

It also helps if I can completely disable this new "theme" feature and restore to the the old way that these "tab-lines" are rendered.

Thanks a lot!

I have two opened Firefox windows and automatic restoring of the previous browser session at startup enabled. Once I closed one Firefox window and restarted Firefox (the other window remained open), the session didn't get restored. Also, the button "Restore Previous Session" in the history didn't appear. So, there was no way to restore my session. It would be nice if you could fix this bug since my last session contained some important tabs which are all lost now :(
