I used to close my browser and be able to reopen the save tabs when I started my browser the next time, now I can't, it's totally crippled my abilities online and what I am using my browser for and leaving me lost now.

Hi!

I had two Firefox windows open at the same time, one with a lot of tabs open in it, and one with only a few open. I was going to close firefox in order to restart the computer, and closed the window with many tabs in it first, and then I closed the window with only a few tabs in it. The next time I started Firefox, only the window with a few tabs in it loaded, and not the other window in which I had the vast majority of all opened tabs. And I can't find any way to restore the tabs from the other window either. I have looked under the History menu, but I don't see any option to restore a previous session there, so I'm guessing that Firefox thinks that it already has restored the previous session when I opened it up again.

So, how can I restore the tabs I had in the other window, with a lot of tabs opened?

My browser opens new links in new tabs. I want them to open new links in the same tab.

Others inquire about the same issue get a response saying:;

"Did you try it? Some sites add a target="_blank" attribute to links. Links with these attributes are supposed to open in a new window when left clicked. However, Firefox by default opens these links in a new tab in the current window. By setting browser.link.open_newwindow to 1, these links will instead open in the current tab/window."

I need step-by-step help understanding what I need to do to set the browser are suggested in the above response.

My POS system is set to open in firefox as defult page. So it would be nice if I could open it in full screen by default.

So Can I know, Is there any way to make the firefox window open in full screen by default?

I know that Firefox can expand to fill my entire screen with its Full Screen feature by togglling Full Screen keyboard shortcut of F11 key. But just I want to enable that feature by default.

Any suggestions on how to revert to full screen by default would be greatly appreciate.

Thanks in advance.

Hi. I would like to restore my previous session when I open Firefox (last version of the browser installed). The option is turned on, but nothing happens when I close the browser and I open it again. The support says I should see "Restore previous session" after "New Private Window", but this option is not there. In the history, the list of recently closed tabs is always empty, there are juste one or two links in the recently closed windows (it seems to be a random list). Can someone help me ? I don't understand why it doesn't work. Thank you :)

Firefox was acting normally keeping my open tabs when I open the browser this morning. I don't know what happened. I left the computer for a couple hours this afternoon. I opened Windows and found a "new desktop" which I didn't want. I clicked on it and it took me back to my normal desktop. I had left Firefox minimized. Maybe this is what has removed my settings in Firefox. Now when I open Firefox, my saved tabs are gone. I've tried twice putting them back in. I check Options to make sure that restore session is checked. Each time I close, I get a single tab and have to re-open all of my favorite pages all over again. My Windows 10 version is 20H2.

What can I do in options that will allow my open tabs to stay saved?

Please reply.

Hello, I switched to Firefox from Chrome, however, the browser is missing one of the most important features I use almost all the time - swipe left to go back and swipe right to go forwards. I checked about:config and browser.gesture.swipe.left is set to Browser:BackOrBackDuplicate but it does not work. All answers on Mozilla Support and elsewhere are outdated or do not answer the question at all. Please fix this, it is the reason why I switched back to Chrome twice before. Any help is appreciated.

I searched this forum but couldn't find an answer. I have "restore last session" turned on, but I'd like Firefox wouldn't reopen my last visited site after I close the browser by closing the last tab. In other words: if I close the browser by a regular means (by clicking the rightmost upper X, or by right-clicking the taskbar and choosing close window) it goes to the last viewed site when I reopen the browser – and that's ok – but when I close the last tab and the browser closes, I don't want to see this site again when I reopen Firefox. Is there a way to achieve this? By the way, this is the standard behavior in Google Chrome.

I tend to use the following workflow. 1. hit ctrl-t for a new tab and start typing search query into address bar 2. realize i do not need it 3. hit ctrl-w to close the tab

This workflow works great on my old install, on a new laptop this workflow fails to work, ctrl-w now just clears the address bar instead of closing the tab. These are both fedora 35, firefox 95 and it is a profile independent behavior on these installs. Anyone knows what's going on here and how to make new installs actually close the tab on ctrl-w even when address bar is focused?

I had so many problems with it, I went through downloading different "session save" add-ons, I know what solution you guys will give me, I've done most of the posts' instructions, this is more of a complaint post.

When Windows boots up and you had Firefox open before you shut down last time, it will open anew, automatically, with your previous session, but it's on the end of the list of things that launch on startup.

Forgetting you had it on and clicking the browser again, will open a new session with the home screen instead of the previous session, then when actual session Firefox launches it's a 50/50 whether it will be in home screen as well, or actually in your previous session. Now here is the fun part. If you close the new window with just the home tab, that will now become the latest session, so your previous one will be deleted.

How to get around that? Move your home tab into your session instead of closing the window, it works 100% of the time... But can we, not start a new session if you close the home screen, or if you close just 1 tab it doesn't count as a different session. I dunno, just throwing ideas out there.

Hope this reaches those with the same issue, or people in positions to fix the issue, if anyone wants to use session saving add-ons, I took fancy to Tab Session Manager and Easy Session Manager, though not perfect, I don't advise for over 150 tabs.

I'll try to be as active on this thread as I can be, thanks for reading through! :>

I have a new Windows 10.0 Pro computer and installed lates version of fire fox. Now I try to implement automatic "open link in new tab" as I had in my previous PC. My internet search was unsatisfactory. The only solution I founf was to right click the link and use the option "open link in new tab". This works but is cumbersome compared to the old version. I also found some help to change certain values in "about:config" from false to true. But they did not work. Does the new version of firefox block the desired adjustment?
