In the new version of the Developer Edition the options "close tabs to the right" and "close other tabs" are in a sub-menu named "Close Multiple Tabs" inside the context menu. Is there's a way to change this so that they will appear directly in the main context menu? I use "close tabs to the right" often and I find this very annoying.

When you open a web site, a tab is created up top under the "File," "Edit," "View," etc. tabs. And, obviously, if you have more then one site open, they're all there. But this week I noticed that with the fourth tab, they stop being visible, and there's arrows on the far left and right. So if you have five or six pages open and you want to go back to the first tab/web site, you have to hit the arrow on the far left to make that tab visible, and then click on the tab.

So they went from one step/click to two, or three, or four! Sometimes I have to click around to find the tab I want. Also, there's times I just want to see if a site/tab is there. Now, I have to click the darn arrow and find it!

Why do they do this? If it aint broke, don't fix it!

I don't want it like this. At all. I want all the tabs there, without any arrows. Just like it always was. How do I get it back to what it was?

Hi

Running Firefox 71.0 (64 bit)

Well seems Firefox has been messing this up again.

Anyone have the new work around solution to get my tabs back on the bottom again. They were fine this morning then shut down and went out to lunch and when I came back they were back on the top again after months of being where I wanted them below my bookmark bar.

Thoughts on this?

Thanks Dave

The option to restore tabs and windows is no longer working for me. I normally have a dozen tabs I work thru every day. Yesterday when I shutdown Firefox, all those tabs were there. Today when I open Firefox it only had to single Firefox default homepage. Checking under History there is no option to restore previous tabs, and the recently closed tabs was empty.

To test, I opened an IMDB page and pinned it. I then went to Wikipedia. This gave me a pinned and unpinned tab. I shutdown Firefox via the "X" to close the window. When I restarted Firefox there was only the default homepage. Neither IMDB nor Wikipedia showed up under recently closed tabs and no option to restore the previous session was available.

I have operated Firefox this way for several years. I don't know why this behavior is no longer being supported.

Hi!

I had two Firefox windows open at the same time, one with a lot of tabs open in it, and one with only a few open. I was going to close firefox in order to restart the computer, and closed the window with many tabs in it first, and then I closed the window with only a few tabs in it. The next time I started Firefox, only the window with a few tabs in it loaded, and not the other window in which I had the vast majority of all opened tabs. And I can't find any way to restore the tabs from the other window either. I have looked under the History menu, but I don't see any option to restore a previous session there, so I'm guessing that Firefox thinks that it already has restored the previous session when I opened it up again.

So, how can I restore the tabs I had in the other window, with a lot of tabs opened?

Hello,

When FF on my Windows 10 machine crashed FF asked if I wanted to refresh FF. I said yes, and FF reopened as usual with all my tabs. After I closed and reopened FF the next time, it reopened without any of my tabs. I then discovered that FF had unchecked the “Startup Open previous windows and tabs” box, which I had previously religiously monitored to be sure it was checked. So I lost all my previous tabs.

In my sessionstore-backups folder I found the file upgrade.jsonlz4-20 as last in a list of three more recent file names. I then dropped the file upgrade.jsonlz4-20 in the scrounger tool on this site: https://www.jeffersonscher.com/ffu/scrounger.html. It expanded in the big window, and when I clicked on Save uncompressed JSON as text, I see all the URLs run together in a text file.

How can I use this information to recover my tabs, please? If so, how? Or is there a better way to use the Scrounger – or another – tool?

Otherwise if I delete the three more recent file names in the list above the upgrade.jsonlz4-20 file, and restart FF will I recover the missing tabs? If so would I the check or uncheck the Startup Open previous windows and tabs box?

Lastly, can I restore my missing tabs using Windows’ “System restore” tool from 3 days before the crash?

Many thanks for any help!

Hello,

I really need some help, I don't know if I can still do anything, but at least I'm asking here. Last night, my computer crashed really bad and I went to sleep, today, my Firefox tabs were all gone. I had more than 200 open tabs with stuff to keep in mind, stuff to do later and other things... The weirdest part is that I still had some tabs opened, but it was tabs from 21/012021, how bizarre is that?

I tried everything I could find on here or on other website, but nothing helped. I even tried a recovery of my computer to a week ago, in vain. The only useful thread was this one : https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1310742

With ShadowExplorer I found two files from the 23/01/2022 in sessionstore-backups : recovery.baklz4 recovery.jsonlz4

But trying the methods from the previous thread never worked. I also tried to just copy my whole profile folder from the 23/01/2022, and again, no result.

I'm stuck now, I really don't want to lose my tabs and I KNOW they're somewhere.

Thanks in advance.

Today when I closed Firefox and reopened it the option to restore previous session was not shown, as a result I have lost half my pinned tabs (I managed to redo the rest from bookmarks) which were vital. I tried going into history but the option was greyed out.

This happened yesterday too but after redoing half my tabs I went to open gmail and it restored all my tabs, I tried the sane today but it failed so am stuck with half my tabs.

Please do not suggest I use synch as I only use one device.

Earlier today I changed my settings in "Privaty & Security" to "Clear history when Firefox closes". In that setting I selected to only delete "Browsing and download history."

I assumed this would just delete my browsing history from the URL bar, but now after I closed Firefox, it also deleted all my tabs!! There were many important tabs that I don't want to lose. But I also can't find them under 'recently closed tabs', and I also tried a solution from this forum, namely to find the recovery file and upload them to https://www.jeffersonscher.com/ffu/scrounger.html -- but they don't contain my old tabs either!

Is there still something I can do to recover my lost tabs??
