Firefox isn't warning me when closing multiple tabs, and it should be, and the option to save the tabs is missing

Hello all,

Not sure if this is something with Firefox 30, but this problem seems new.

Actually, first when I was closing the browser with multiple tabs open, it was warning me with the little popup, but it wasn't the "Do you want Firefox to save your tabs for the next time it starts?" It was just the warning about closing that says "You are about to x tabs. Are you sure you want to continues?"

So, that was problem #1 recently. I want the option to save and quit. But just in the last few days, it seems, it's not even showing that close warning now. With multiple tabs open, it just closes down the browser. Upon opening Firefox again, the tabs were restored, so at least that's one good thing, albeit bizarre.

I'm wondering how to make it go back to asking to "Save and Quit" or "Quit" or "Cancel" like it used to.

To answer some potential inquiries, here's some information that you may be wondering, which I've already double-checked: - the appropriate about:config settings are all set to true already, such as browser.tabs.warnOnClose and browser.showQuitWarning - in Tools > Options, "Warn me when closing multiple tabs" is checked, and "Show my windows and tabs from last time" is selected for when Firefox starts. Nothing has changed! - running in safe mode doesn't solve the issue; Firefox still just closes if I exit or hit the red X. - "Always use private browsing mode" is not checked. - I hadn't run a program like CCleaner in between sessions

I haven't changed anything, but this problem is happening! I hope someone can help me fix this and get back to the way it was, where accidentally closing Firefox could be avoided and restoring the previous session was possible.

Thanks!

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.

Hello !

So I have seen this question posted before but the author decided to just switch version, which is not exactly a future proof solution

So Firefox changed the way ctrl-tab works to display the last tab used, and while I don't think this is a bad idea, I'm just very used to quick switching by mashing ctrl-tab/ctrl-shift-tab, and I don't really want to try and remember the exact order I used my many tabs to navigate between them.

Isn't there somewhere where I could toggle this ?

Thanks !

What *is* a container/"container tab"? (Please be consistent with the nomenclature)

Do I open tabs within these containers? I just opened a container/"container tab" and did a search from the search bar: it opened a new tab that does not appear to be contained or related to the container/"container tab" in any way. Am I supposed to be able to move tabs into these Containers? Maybe not, because sometimes they are referred to as Container Tabs themselves. Is this the desired behavior, and if so, why?

I find the color change in this version 57.0 (64-bit) To a black background with white letters is vary harsh on my eyes. Reversing the colors with the Tab that is open. It is easier to tell which Tab is open. I have a mac-book pro and it's tool bar is black so your browser just blends in and seems like part of the desk top making it a little harder to separate the two and easier to click on a drop down then a tab. This change is harsh on my eyes and more fatiguing, a subtle blend of colors is always easier on the eyes. If the color can't be changed how do I go back to the previous version? Thank you for any assistance. John McLeod

Im In a difficult situation, I have updated firefox to the new version 2 weeks ago. This version disable my 'session manager' add ons, without my knowledge. Yesterday I closed my firefox with 150 tabs and shut it down, hoping that when I start firefox again today, and click on 'restore previous session' that my 150 tabs will appear before me like they normally do. Except what happened was that I opened firefox, the main page opened, and before I was able to click' restore previous session' and restore my 150 tabs, I accidentally closed the firefox window. I then reopened firefox again, and clicked 'restore previous session' and all it would do is open the main window, and all my 150 tabs are lost now. I thought i shouldnt worry, because I did see an article last year about how to restore the firefox session that existed before the previous session, and there was something in that article about a sessionstore,js file and a .bak file that needs to be renamed. I went to my Firefox Profile Folder, there I clicked on the 'Sessionstore-backups' folder, and found these files:

1.previous.jsonlz4 2.recovery.jsonlz4 3.recovery.baklz4 4. upgrade.jsonlz4-20171002220106 5. upgrade.jsonlz4-20171024165158 6. upgrade.jsonlz4-20171112125346

I saved a copy of these files in My documents, but I dont know what to do with these files, I tried to rename the .baklz4 file to sessionstore.js, but it didnt work, I tried renaming it to recovery.jsonlz4 but it still didnt work, It is 23rd november today and I have given up hope that I would be able to recover all 150 tabs from yesterday, but the file in point 6 which is called ' upgrade.jsonlz4-20171112125346' seems to be a backup file from 15th November, so I thought Id try and rename this file and recover my tabs from 15th November instead ( about 120 tabs in total). I have tried renaming this file to , recovery.jsonlz4, previous.jsonlz, session.jsonlz4, sessionstore.js, but everytime i restart firefox, it doesnt read this file, and gives me that one blank tab instead. Can anyone tell me how to restore the 15th November file and how to load the 120 tabs in that file please?

Thanks

Today I updated my Firefox Developer Edition to version 89.0b2 and now I just can not look at this browser anymore, "Inspired new tab design" is taking too much space and now became largest and at the same time least information-dense panel in my entire desktop! I searched around the web for a bit in hopes that I will find a theme or an add-on that will revert this particular change but no luck. I really want to revert to old UI look (at least tabs bar), there should be default theme or option to get back to old style. After some investigation I found userChrome.css but don't really want to install it (maybe this is actually the way of doing this kind of styling). Please help me revert UI design to old one.

I normally have FF save my previous session and I had quite a number of useful tabs open. For some unknown reason, FF crashed and when I was able to load it again, all my open tabs were gone and I'd like to recover them. I read in a post (https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1057949) that "Open and closed tabs are stored as part of the session data in the sessionstore.js file in the Firefox profile folder."

Fortunately, I backup my entire HDD weekly and had a backup only two days old, so I mounted that backup as a separate drive letter and went to my FF profile in that backup, but there was no sessionstore.js file to be found. What I want to do is to go into my FF profile on the mounted backup and find the file containing my tabs as of my last backup two days ago, then copy that file into my FF profile on my C: drive. That way, my hope is to be able to reboot FF with all my tabs as they were at that time, as that will give me over 90 percent of the tabs I've lost.

For reference, I'm running FF45 under W7 Pro 64-bit SP1.

Thanks in advance for any and all help.
