Sometimes when closing Firefox, something has opened a new browser session that i didn't know about, and I close it too, and since it only has one tab open, it becomes the save session with only that open tab, thus i lose all my tabs from the first session, how do i recover all my tabs them from the first session? Sometimes, if Firefox has crashed, it asks if you want to recover your previous tabs, but only if it crashed! I would like an option to force that same recovery when you open Firefox and all your previous tabs are gone and replaced by one stupid tab you really didn't even want in the first place and not have to find every previous tab one at a time. If there was a recent history of sessions or at least the previous 2 sessions we could recover all the lost tabs from that first session! This has happened many, many times to me and if very frustrating to loose all my open tabs and have to start opening all my old tabs that i use all the time!

This has gone on for months now, but I was patient because I figured other people would also see it and solve it. Alas, no.

I am running 74.0 (64-bit) on Win7 Home Premium SP1.

Only every other tab that I create works. The URL simply remains in the address bar and nothing can persuade the browser to contact it (e.g., Enter, ctrl-R). If I repeat whatever action caused the invalid tab, I get a new tab and it works fine. There is no difference how I open the tab: click a hyperlink in Thunderbird, ctrl-click a hyperlink on a webpage, right-click+open_in_new_tab on a hyperlink on a web page.

While we're on the every-other pattern... The browser has trouble coming up in a workable condition after boot; I currently blame that on overly-aggressive A/V behavior but it does work after I close it and restart it.

Has anyone else seen behavior like this?

First, I just had a major system crash, had to re-install Linux Mint and through my own stupidity, relied on the wrong backups for my firefox configuration. So I lost my Firefox 52 install with all of my extensions (that still worked). Now, I'm running v. 57 Quantum, and a few things aren't working correctly.

First, the MAJOR problem: when I open a link from a bookmark, it's clobbering an existing tab that I was using (that's why it was open, obviously). That is completely unsat and can not be allowed to continue. How do I correct this? I can't find the option under settings-->tabs to fix this problem.

Second issue (major annoyance): I can no longer create a bookmark directly in a bookmark folder on the bookmark toolbar. I used to be able to open that bookmark folder, and the first option was to bookmark the currently open tab. That option has vanished, and i use that all the time. How do I restore that?

Actually, one more issue: I have two tabs that are pinned and are supposed to be protected (i.e., nothing can clobber them, and I can't close them without deliberately turning the protection off (context menu right-clicking on tab). I need that back, because for some reason, firefox thinks it's ok to open a bookmark in those tabs, too, when it most definitely is NOT ok.

When I use Firefox search engine, first tab opens, then I open a second tab, it overrides the first tabs page, I cannot search from it nor can I bounce between tabs. I have to close the second tab but then the first tab is blank. I have to close both and open up the browser again. I am not a google fan and want to migrate away as much as possible. It might be my dated windows so instead of spending hundreds of dollars on a new version, can I take firefox back to the version I had before this stupid new version. Which sounds like people are having a lot of problems with.

I have an android phone running android 9 (Pie) and I had over 100 tabs on it open (mostly news articles and stuff). It is signed into my Firefox account. I realized that's a lot of tabs and the past 2 days I've been actually sorting them and closing some of them. I realized I could do this on my desktop as well. Anyways my phone froze while I had Firefox open, and I realized my tabs on there were all missing... I decided not to panic yet because I could still get to them on my desktop. Turns out when I open the "synced tabs" pane on my desktop which is logged into the same firefox account.. none of the 100+ tabs are there anymore either. How do I actually contact someone that can revert my sync status or whatever to a previous state so I can get my tabs and stuff back that I had open? Firefox crashing on my phone SHOULD NOT EVER somehow close all of those tabs on BOTH the phone and the computer. I guess the crash of firefox somehow wiped them out, and then my desktop synced with that account, realized those tabs were "closed" and cleared the list there as well.

HELP??

Not even an exaggeration. It's only 9 pm and I've already submitted over 80 crashes for today alone.

For Hardware Acceleration, I've tried to disable and enable and disable it again with no change. I tried to read around and turned on "Prevent accessibility services from accessing your browser" as well, hearing that some people have tried that with results. I do not have an actively scanning antivirus running, nor firewall. I had this issue before the upgrade to Quantum. I did a completely clean upgrade in hopes of fixing it, and I'm still having issues. Daily. It's been ongoing for several months at this point.

Here's some of the IDs of the last reports: 10 each. Unsubmitted reports:

Out of nowhere, a Mozilla Firefox opened in fundal with some weird name like wqkt12essddfg34sdsdgdse24awsd42312.... and I couldn't maximize. After like 20 seconds it disappeared. But when I started up my pc the Mozilla tab appeared again, made everything black and I had to restart windows explorer to regain access to my computer.

I tried to scan with Malwarebytes, Bitdefender, Avast, etc and nothing. I reinstalled my windows after I formatted all my hard drive, and after I installed only google chrome and graphics card driver, the Mozilla tab popped up again. And I don't even installed Mozilla Firefox on my new windows. I don't get it. I posted a picture to see that it looks like an old version of Firefox, not a new one.

Despite incessant FF versions/updates and obvious complaints and demands from FF users, FF Quantum fails to provide FF users with simple settings for changing font/font style/font size of FF tabs/bookmarks/toolbars! Prior to Quantum FF57, the easy to use add-on Theme Font & Size Changer worked but yet despite FF user complaints, no Quantum version (now FF62!!!!!!!) integrates the accessibility features and functionality of such add-on. We need FF tabs in arial black font, e.g.! Inexcusable! Pisses us off! Time to switch browsers!

Just installed firefox for the wife. She plays flash games on plinga. When using Chrome she open 2 separate tabs with two separate games and put one tab on one monitor and the other tab on the other monitor. She make each full-screen using the settings in the game.

Now with firefox for some reason, when she tries to put one tab or game in full-screen mode the other tab automatically closes full-screen. She can't have both games in full-screen like in Chrome.

How can I fix this for her before I go and switch back to Chrome again.

New tabs are preserved but existing tabs are not opening the URL they were last closed at.

For example, If I am on page 1 of a forum/comic on a tab and I move to page 3 and then close the browser. When I open it is at page 1 again. If I then press next to page 7 as the forum/comic has moved on, read the latest and then maybe close the browser a day later, on re-opening it will open to either 1 or 3.

This is across 3 firefox installations, ON 3 PCs.

I just noticed that Open Tabs were set to sync but I actually have no tab crossover between the browsers and they don't restore unless you choose to being them over so each browser with a particular tab open should update that one on re-open, not take it from an instance that does not have that tab open.

Anyway, it is really starting to pee me of as when I re-open my home instance it is not opening Cyanide and Happiness about 30-40 commics behind the last one read.

It all worked perfectly before Quantum and none of my settings have changed.

Cheers,

Rob.

I've been having this issue recently with whenever I open firefox my search engine is reset to Yahoo, so I decided to remove all my addons and and restart firefox to see if the addons where the cause behind it.

To my surprise FireFox only retored the last window that I closed instead of all the Windows I had open at the time.

Those old windows had some very important tabs that I need for an upcoming project.

I've tried opening FireFox again to look for a potential solution but no such luck, I have the found the old recover.bak file that I think has my old browsing data.

C:/Users/username/AppData/Roaming/Mozilla/Firefox/Profiles/9ds7hi8q.default/sessionstore-backups

You would think given the constant development that this would be a standard tool to get feedback.
