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.

There is an answer about holding `Alt`, but that is a workaround.

I have two computers, one for personal use and one for business. Somehow the tabs between the two computers are being shared and I cannot disable it. Both browsers are signed into different Firefox accounts, Sync is turned off on both, and there are no connected devices. Yet despite that, when I go to one computer, it pops up a Firefox icon (see attached) in the taskbar that lets me open the tab open on the other computer. This is incredibly frustrating and Firefox should not automatically share this information, and should not make it so difficult to disable.

When i have like 50+ tabs pinned then firefox breaks and we cannot scroll tabs anymore. Of course closing tabs doesn;t work with Ctrl+W, but then we need some different shortcut for closing pinned tabs (like for example Ctrl + Shift + W) or just you fixing this bug ;) I attach 2 screenshots that show what happens with Firefox when having too many tabs pinned. I can't navigate through tabs anymore.

If you have multiple tabs open and you hit Ctrl-T to open a new one, it opens it at the end of the tabs, and the cursor focus moves to the URL bar so you can start typing in an address/search.

If you right-click on any of those tabs, it opens a new tab to the right of that tab, instead of at the end (which is what I want, as right-clicking on a specific one to open a new tab, to me, means you are linking those tabs in layout and want them together) BUT the cursor focus DOES NOT move to the URL bar.

This seems pretty counter-intuitive, and means that so many times I right-click, Open New Tab, and start typing a URL and then see that I have to stop typing, click in the URL bar, and start typing all over again.

Is there an about:config to force the focus to the URL bar, or is this a bug? If there's no setting for this, I would definitely consider this a bug because you have 2 different behaviors for New Tabs.

Hi; Search engine does not open in new tab. This is not how it used to work. Not sure when this started, possibly when windows updated to Win11(2 weeks ago), but not sure. I think there used to be a setting for opening a search in new tab, but I can not find it. I have "Add search bar in toolbar" checked. I use DDG as search engine. I did lookup in FF help but found 10yr old answers. I am sure many things have changed since then.

Also when searching FF help is there a way to sort by newest first?

TIA

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.

Hello,

I am desperately trying to recover lost tabs from Firefox Browser after 2 crashes, freezing and forced shutdowns. I need the tabs for my work, and as usually happens, this has occurred at a time when I'm running to meet a critical deadline.

I've tried going to history, but the "recently closed tabs" option was greyed out:-( I've tried searching for other solutions, but cannot fine any that fit my situation. I'm not an IT expert - I know my way around what I need to use (i.e. professional worker), so clear & simple explanation would be much appreciated.

Can I recover the lost tabs from backed up data or a previous system image? My system is Windows 7, and I'm currently running Firefox version 115.0.2. All suggestions welcome!

Thanking you in anticipation off prompt assistance, MLH

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?

I had a number of tabs open today (~40). Because Firefox started to malfunction, I had to restart Firefox. It happened to me before and I knew that I can restore my previous session so I safely closed the tabs.

When I restarted it, I opened a tab and then I tried to open the Application Menu, but accidentally closed the window. Now, when I've re-opened Firefox and attempted to restore the previous session only that last tab appeared.

Is it possible to recover the pre-previous session? I use Ubuntu 18.04. Where is this information located? and how can I retrieve it?

Its really annoying that these kind of tabs get opened automatically, and then I have to switch back. Is there a way to disable this autoswitch or better, let the authentication happen automatically since the password is already stored ?

When I pressed the "+" symbol at the right side of my tabs with the left mouse button, a new tab opens at the most right place. So far, so easy.

When I pressed the same "+" symbol using the middle mouse button, the new tab opened right beside the active tab. Now, middle mouse button and left mouse button do the same thing.

Work around could be to open the context menu (right mouse button) of a tab, choose "new tab" an get a new tab right beside the tab chosen with the mouse pointer while pressing the right mouse button.

Did something recently change?

Hello i've been having some problems on the latest software of yours i'm most of the time watching livestreams but from update v.100 of your software it became weird tab suspends after some in activity which is a problem for me

i found a solution through ABOUT:CONFIG and disabled these 3 for videos 1 - media.suspend-bkgnd-video.enabled 2 - media.resume-bkgnd-video-on-tabhover 3 - browser.tabs.unloadOnLowMemory

for videos and live streams it was good it didn't suspend but my problem now since update v.102 is that video plays but the CHAT stops and doesn't reload until i reopen firefox to the front of my programs

although it is runnning in the background and NOT MINIMIZED

even when the live stream has some lags and re-buffer it doesn't rebuffer or refresh the page to reconnect to the live stream until i force my firefox in front of my programs or games and again it was not minimized

if there is an option in the about:config to change this please tell me i'm already losing my mind as i missed one of my friends live stream because of that suspension

thank in advance
