Hello! I was wondering if it's possible to configure the Firefox in such a way that the new tabs open exactly the same URL that is typed in the Options. I tried to set browser.newtab.url to about:home but it gives me Firefox Google custom page instead of the startup page that I've set in the Options. Another way I tried is to set the browser.newtab.url value in about:config to the same URL as the startup page URL, but then if I change the URL in the options the new tab URL is not changed. So the question is whether it's possible to make the Firefox read the URL that is used for the startup page and go there when opening a new tab.

Firefox always used to open a new tab with a simple url, which if I clicked in it would automatically become selected, so it was easy to overtype an different url.

Lately each new tab is opening with along string like this: http://www.google.com.au/firefox?gfe_rd=ctrl&ei=jlGcUpi5JquN8Qfz5YGYDQ&gws_rd=cr

And when I click in it the cursor is placed at the end of the string, so I have to select the whole string with Ctrl and A or backspace to get rid of it. What changed and how do I get my short url with auto click / select back

Also, I have opened in safe mode without any addons, didn't make any difference.

Thanks

I'm feeling sick of Firefox because it's wasting my time -- I do a lot of online research, and I just want to simply click on a link and go to the site! Instead Firefox browser opens a new tab every time I click on a link. Which means I have to wade through a pile of old tabs, and spend precious moments closing them.

Is my brower not working right? Or can the settings be changed? Or is that just the way Firefox works nowadays? I've tried various Tab Options -- but none of them simply make it so a link goes straight to a site, without opening a new tab or window.

Help!

I began on the Web with the NCSA Mosaic browser. I then progressed through Netscape Navigator and into Mozilla ("Mosaic killa") and the original Firefox betas. O, how I wax nostalgic for the "good old days" back before Satan discovered the Internet and decided to condemn us all to eternal damnation via the advent of tabbed browsing.

I gave tabs a chance. They only caused clutter, confusion and consumption of screen real estate. Anything that could be done in a new tab could be done much better in a new window. I've been biding my time, waiting for the majority of Web users to realize that tabs were useless and foolish, but alas, the majority of Web users are apparently... useless and foolish.

The next great crime to be committed was for the first Firefox option to change from New Window to New Tab. It took me nearly a year to overcome my habitual clicking on the first option, unintentionally opening a new tab, then having to waste time closing it and going back to carefully scroll down to the next option of New Window.

We were given SOME reprieve with the options to uncheck "Always show the tab bar" and "Open new windows in a new tab instead," but what we really needed was an option to "Open new TABS in a new WINDOW instead." Better yet, one that would say, "Completely disable tabbed browsing and remove all 'tab' options from menus and hotkeys."

Now the Apocalypse is upon us, and with Firefox 23, we are forced to have a stupid TAB at the top of our browser window. We should NOT need to use an add-on or manual code to make it go away. I have trodden the path of righteousness for as long as I could muster, but yea, I grow weary, and the Dark Side is calling me to finally click that box that says "Install Google Chrome."

As for my question.... If I were to join a dating site, should I be upfront and admit my shameful browser choice to prospective partners in my profile, or wait until we know each other better so they are more willing to accept such a flaw in my moral character?

Search.conduit.com has hijacked my newtab.url setting in about:config. I have tried to change it back to about:newtab but it acts as though it is read-only. I have uninstalled the sweet pack and tried the SearchReset add on (Other solutions suggested on this support site). I even uninstalled FIrefox and reinstalled it, to no avail. It also hijacked my homepage, but I was able to set that back to my preferred page.

Does anyone have a solution to this issue?

Hi, I have firefox version 72, I run the browser in normal mode, where I have about 90 cards open. Additionally I opened firefox in incognito mode today and worked there on facebook pages. I closed the browser in normal mode first, then the one in incognito. Now when I open the normal mode I don't have those 90 cards. I have "Restore previous session" enabled, I was logged in to my firefox account at shutdown. Is there any way to restore these many cards? I do not have the "Restore previous session" button in the drop-down menu.

Hello,

  I've been having problems with FF when I right click a link on any site, and I want to "Open Link in New Window", but it never happens. Then I tried to right click the same link and I "Open Link in New Tab", which works. What happened? Did the programmers/developers change something? I even tried it in "Safe Mode" with the same problem. Can anyone suggest anything? I almost tried everything imaginable, even running Windows 7 Ult SP1 in Safe Mode as well, with no help. 

Thank You. David

At the moment I have 4 pages open in tabs.

But each of them except the current page have lost their content and if I switch back each tab has to reload the page.

This just started happening after the lastest update. 67.0

For example I am on support community page if I tab back to Youtube which was open, it is now blank, has the tab description but reloads the page.

It's the same for all the tabs.

Any ideas. It's very annoying and thinking perhaps time to switch to chrome.

The newest Firefox update (63.0.3 64bit) changed the way we switch tabs. usually it was CTRL + TAB to get to the next tab and CTRL + SHIFT + TAB to get to the previous tab.

Now it switches to the last tab which was opened (similiar to some IDEs). Also multiple switches between tabs shows a preview of the tab first instead of just switching.

Is there a way, maybe some about:config change, to get the old behaviour back?
