When I open a link in a New Tab, Firefox continually returns a blank page. (Previously, Firefox would happily open up to 10 or more Tabs for reading later, without batting an eyelid)

Firefox even declined to open my Home Page a short while ago.

The only extension I am using is Adblock Plus, and even disabling it, or restarting in Safe Mode, makes no difference.

I am using Firefox release 83.0 - and I've tried turning off Hardware Acceleration - again, no difference.

Any help/advice much appreciated Robin

When I access Task Manager from the Firefox menu or just type about:performance the screen comes up, but it only shows information for Task Manager itself (low impact) but doesn't show information about open tabs / websites or add-ons. I was trying to use it to see if one of my open tabs was impacting browser performance. I have the latest version of Firefox.

I just came back to Firefox after about 2 months, as Microsoft crushed my OS with their fall feature update. I could not get many items running, and just had to start from scratch.

That being said, I surely do not recall that every time I clicked a link, it would open in a new tab. I mean, every single time. Who ever thought that was a good idea.

Anyone have a clue as to what's happening here? I usually only want a new tab to open when either I choose it as a right-click option, or when builders have invested it specifically in their code, as they know it will navigate away from their site, etc...

I would be most thankful to get this baby back running like normal. Your help is appreciated!

Btw, fresh windows 10 install. The only extensions I have running are adblock, lastpass, blur, downloadthemall and new tab homepage (which just let's me determine the page address.)

When Firefox is launched on my Mac desktop, it takes a long time to display a browser window, and the window is filled with innumerable tabs whose origins I can't understand. I have tried many of the remedies suggested for dealing with too many tabs, and none seem to work. I trashed the Firefox application and the folder /User/Library/Application_Support/Firefox, restarted the Mac, and Firefox works well for a while, but when I do a Google Search the browser window is suddenly populated with huge numbers of tabs that seem similar to what I have seen in past occasions, and Firefox stalls. Are there some other files containing a record of all these tabs that I can delete, to stop this from happening?

I can't "Refresh Firefox", because Firefox is unusable at the point when the problem occurs.

I have Firefox set to restore tabs from the previous session. That works great ... until I set Edge as the default browser in order to do some troubleshooting. Then I set FF back to the default browser, started FF, and the tabs weren't there from the previous session. There was only one tab, the which was the Homepage. Is there some way that I can restore all of those tabs when I start FF?

I found when pressing Alt+Enter in the address bar, the link will open in a new tab, which is nice. But if I press Alt+click a link in the page, the link does not open in a new tab (while Shift+click can open in a new window as expected). I'm not sure if it's a problem, but I hope Firefox can have this feature so that opening a link in a new tab can be more convenient.

Besides, in some browsers, drag a link to a nearby place will open in a new tab. However, in Firefox, this manner does not work, unless I drag a link to the tabs bar.

I have open half a dozen or so tabs related to one subject. I would like to put them all into one "super tab", such that only the super tab shows as an open tab. Then, by clicking on that tab, it would show the tabs within it, any one or more of which could be selected. Is this possible, and if so how is it done? Perhaps there's an add-on or extension that would do this.

I have already created a multi-tab bookmark that sorta, maybe accomplishes the same thing. But it's not as convenient as what I envision as described above.

Thanks for any advice or words of wisdom.
