Hi,

I use the latest FF for MacOS.

When I "close" Firefox by clicking the red cross in the top left corner of the window, I lose all open tabs when I start again despite having the option of restoring the previous session checked. When I "close" the whole thing (right click on FF in the Dock, Quit, and then re-open), all my tabs are back normally.

So basically every time i click this red cross, by mistake or not, I lose anything that's open.

Feels like I did not have this issue before.

Anyone has a workaround or experiences a similar issue?

Thanks!

I have pinned various shortcuts in the New tab to link to websites I frequently use. I use two different laptops and both are configured the same. However the New tab randomly clears the pinned shortcuts. I have attached two screenshots illustrating the changes.

I'm not aware of anything I do that caused the shortcuts to be deleted. When they are pinned I think they should be there permanently.

Any other ideas that may help? I'd appreciate it.

We already can add a custom url for new windows, so why not for tabs.

Firefox is taking weird directions.

Hello. I experience a problem that occurred 2 days ago. Firefox seems to ignore my preferences of opening previous windows and tabs, also it ignores pinned tabs. Some of websites disappear from the history (let's say i opened few windows to check if tabs will be saved by firefox, closed browser, opened it after few minutes: tabs are gone, history has only few of websites that were open. I tried to look for the problem by myself but failed. I will be grateful for your reply, thank you in advance.

Hello! Can you help me sort out a little problem? I am reaching out to seek assistance with a specific issue I am encountering in the Firefox browser.

In my previous browser, when opening new tabs, they were considered active even if I did not immediately switch to them. This behavior allowed me to open multiple tabs, for example, by using the mouse wheel to open several videos from the main YouTube page. Subsequently, when closing the main page, the videos would be available in the order they were opened, facilitating a seamless viewing experience.

Upon transitioning to Firefox, I have attempted to configure the browser to replicate this behavior using the Sidebery extension. However, even with the extension, new tabs are not recognized as active unless I explicitly switch to them, making it challenging to maintain the desired tab activation order.

I have explored various settings and experimented with the Sidebery extension but have not been successful in achieving the desired result. In contrast, the Yandex browser, with the "Switch to the previous active tab when closing a tab" option enabled, behaves in the manner I am accustomed to.

Could you please provide guidance on how I can configure Firefox to consider new tabs active immediately upon opening, regardless of whether I switch to them immediately?

I added pictures to make it clearer what I'm talking about.

Thank you for your time and assistance.

It only backs up the tabs from your last close, so if you had a problem and closed twice, all your tabs are gone. There are many many easy ways to change it so this can never happen to people anymore. Why has this not been fixed after all this time? I am a retired IT pro and this has even happened to me. It is horrible. What can users do to not have this happen, since the developers apparently can't be bothered? And please don't tell me not to keep so many tabs open JUST because the browser sucks at protecting them. Any good news appreciated. Thanks.

Ctrl+Shift+T opening new tabs instead of restoring closed ones

I'm facing a bewildering problem with Ctrl+Shift+T, which has only started in the past few hours and persisted through troubleshooting.

In short, it's opening a default new tab when I press that combination, rather than reopening the last closed tab, as is its normal function. The problem is not that the tabs themselves are lost -- the "Reopen Closed Tab" drop-down menu entry is still available on right-click, and seems to function as expected. Similarly, I checked about:config to see if there was a problem with sessionstore or sessionrestore, both of which are at their default settings and can't be causing this. Rather, something about the combination itself is no longer working.

I ran Firefox in Troubleshoot Mode to see if any of my settings were causing this. The problem persisted there, so that doesn't seem to be the case.

A little over a month ago, I got a new phone and synced up my desktop and mobile (Android) Firefox tabs, which I hadn't done previously. This is really the only thing I can think of that would lead to any issues, but it's impossible to match the timeframes -- I noticed this problem today, five hours ago. (The failure for ctrl+shift+t to work includes tabs that were opened from mobile sync.) I make heavy use of this keyboard shortcut and would've noticed it earlier if it started earlier.

Something about Ctrl+Shift+T itself is not properly being 'translated'. Ctrl+T works as expected (opens a blank tab), which is the same thing the Shift version is doing. Both my Ctrl and Shift keys are working fine in other respects (e.g. shift key capitalizes letters and adds special characters), so it's not keyboard hardware. It's not "inconsistent" -- it consistently works for everything else, and consistently doesn't work for this.

I'm using Firefox 122.0 on Windows 11.

I have used Firefox for 10 or 20 years and have not encountered this before.

New computer running Windows 11 Home. New Firefox install. If I am writing a message in any forum or social media site, and I need to look-up some info or the name of a place or product and I use another tab to do that, when I return to the original tab, Firefox reloads the entire page again instead of just returning me to the post that was being written without reloading the entire page. It can be a severe waste of time trying to find the post I was in the middle of once the entire tab reloads when the site is a busy place with lots of new and updated posts.

I've been through Firefox settings but did not see anything that seemed to be related to this issue, but perhaps the wording/description of the needed setting wasn't clear.
