After updating to Beta 122.0b3 (64-bit), the active tab is now highlighted with a simple white outline instead of the coloring surrounding the address bar. My selected theme has not changed, and the same goes for all of my extensions. I could not find this change in the 122.0b Release Notes.

If this behavior is intentional, is there any option to return to the previous behavior (including in about:config)?

With 'Back up your Firefox data' it says it saves all open tabs.

What is meant by 'open' tabs? Is it tabs that I have clicked on during my session?

I have just over 300 tabs, will Firefox save all of those tabs in the cloud or only the tabs I clicked on during a session?

Hi, least night I was using Firefox and all was fine. I closed it as usual. This morning all of my tabs were gone! I still have my bookmarks but the tabs are gone. Is there any way to get them back? I can only assume that this is from the recent update?

Thanks, Steve

Lately, far too many websites I try to open, simply won't! Sometimes it's via links from my home page, sometimes it's links within various websites, like a newspaper, or social media, just whatever, no rhyme nor reason, nor consistency. Even when I manually input the url, nothing happens, the browser just sits there, nothing happens. I've restarted, I've refreshed websites, clicked on "open in new tab/window", nothing gets it to work.

How to make "Reopen Closed Tab" actually reopen closed tabs again?

Up until Firefox 116, Reopen Closed Tab (Ctrl+Shift+T) would reopen closed tabs, and Reopen Closed Window (Ctrl+Shift+N) would reopen closed windows. There was a clear bifurcation, so I could freely close windows and not worry about it polluting my tab history in another window.

The latest change has thrown out that advantage, and now Reopen Closed Tab reopens both tabs and windows, while Reopen Closed Window still just reopens windows. This makes the later essentially useless and the former much more difficult to use for me.

I assume this was done to just continue copying Chrome in all respects since that's how it handles it, but the changelog just vaguely states, "This change is in anticipation of upcoming changes to recently closed tabs."

Does anyone know if there's a setting to separate the two functions again?

Hi,

I have an issue that about:config > browser.link.open_newwindow keeps setting itself to '2', so I have to repeatedly go in and reset it to '3'.

Not entirely sure what could've caused this, all I've been able to find is this here support article with another bloke having the samme issue, but what seemed to be only once.

I haven't done much in way of troubleshooting, as I'm not really sure how to go about doing that for a browser.

If I had to guess, it would be either something updating, or an extension yanking my chain, so here's the list of every extension I have installed:

1Password - Password Manager Allkeyshop - Compare Game Prices Bitwarden - Free Password Manager Buster: Captcha Solver for Humans Dark Reader Disable YouTube Cards Duplicate Tab Shortcut Fast Copy Links Honey NordVPN - A VPN Proxy Extension for Firefox Return YouTube Dislike Tab Reloader (page auto refresh) uBlock Origin

Whenever I open Firefox, it opens every tab from my previous session. I don't want this - if I closed the window, it was because I wanted it closed, and I don't need any automated system to re-open everything on the off chance I was wrong. I believe the setting for this is on the General tab, but as you can see in the attached screenshot, it's definitely off, yet the feature won't go away. I also tried changing the config settings, as listed here:

https://askubuntu.com/questions/1285172/firefox-always-restores-windows-and-tabs-after-reboot

, but it had no effect.

How do I stop Firefox opening these tabs without permission?

It is ABSURD https://bigthink.com/neuropsych/tab-overload/

Why browsers UI didn't change from 1999, when we know it causes tab overload, brain has to constantly filter everything it sees and how we engage with information is cruical in this age. All we get after 24 years are 4 categories to group tabs. I had even 3000 tabs peaking, average 1000+ reading philosophy. Einstein said: "human stupidity is infinite"...

Bookmarks are atrocious, you cannot even scroll panel with mouse holding bar, cannot cltr+f for existing folders, bookmark manager doesn't find existing folders, it sorts folders with bookmarks together contained under a folder... Doesn't have even tags, with thousands of bookmarks and folders, it would take 10 minutes to find fitting folder... I didn't also find any good 3rd party solutions really...

There are tab manager addons, but if you have again a lot of different tabs, it won't help you, it is useful for short-term workloads, but then you have nothing to store things in more permanent way. Also making notes all the time with reading would cost too energy especially if you need to research many things together... There is prototype of AI that saves all things based how you hover cursor over text etc. It would be great if it supported AI tracking and then highlights important info and makes notes, it is not publicly available yet in some solution...

Note taking programs suffer from same issues, missing core features, chat with AI is still very rudimentary and won't help you bring some small notes or piece of info you read 2 years ago, or something specific on-demand... When note taking program cannot even collapse notebooks on main view and you have seeing like 100ths different entries, or doesn't show available tags and selecte multiple of them quickly together under each notebook...

bottom line: there is no tab management really and all addons are really basic and doesn't support long-term intelligent storage for a lots of tabs so you find what you look for later, bookmarks are unuseable after certain amount (again no good third party solutions i saw...). Note taking programs all suffer from same issues, missing core features, again it is impossible to navigate any else way except using tags, but then if you have many then what, you cannot use tags to find thing nested under 20 other things, some specific bit of info, it will still be vehement to sort, if you cannot use multiple things together like jump to notebook and then see all tags what are there available, which would work better, you cannot remember all tags in each notebook you have... All solutions that exist missing core features and are overly simplistic and vehement... This gave me executive dysfunctions...

And if i give feedback to devs of absolutely logical core things, or what could be better and is missing and what stems from purpose and function and is self-evident: they tell me i am brilliant, it is ABSURD... Don't know what to say... 2023 there is still not way to efficiently make notes, capture knowledge... Even my former 160IQ friend said he had millions of files on disk basically has no idea where anything is... Learns everything from memory as he reads it before he goes to next things... It is really dumb in information age, so much interesting things from what we read is permanently lost, there is no really good way to capture info and link it and bring it easily later... Just diet, or healthy lifestyle can be complex and many different areas that are related and are under 20 other things... IT is impossible to find something later... It is absurdly bad how devs don't realize these things and normal ppl tell you you are crazy if you have over 10 tabs, while it was shown today work can generate easily over 100 tabs and it is important to manage information well... Yet there are no solutions, would have to hire programmer for every small thing i notice somewhere is missing, or is vehement useless basically...

Hi

Trying to make sync work the way I want. Initial question:

I've synced tabs between Windows desktop and Android. Now I would like to bookmark all those tabs in the desktop browser, without opening them first. I've found out how to view them in the side bar, but I see no option to bookmark all tabs.

It would be nice to have synced Tabs in the Library window and Options panel.

Yesterday I had Picture-In-Picture (shortened into pip for next mentions) working on youtube, then after one day, PIP no longer works on any of the websites, including youtube. I tried disabling and enabling pip, entering troubleshoot mode, and none of them worked. Not reinstalling because it will be annoying to log in everywhere I've had account at.

After the latest update (117.0 64-bit) I now do not see the '+' sign in the tab bar. I have 40 tabs open (please, no negativity - it's always worked for me), but if I close all of the tabs it reappears. Re-open the original 42 tabs and it's gone again. Close them and it reappears, etc. Now for the fun bit: starting from scratch with a new window - the '+' is there, but open 20 more tabs and it goes.
