I love Firefox and usually work with a well organized set of about 40 tabs that are pinned for easy access. Occasionally i will open a page in "new window" so that I can make better use of multiple screens. If I inadvertently or quickly close the window with all my pinned tabs first, and then close the singular "new" window, all my tabs are gone. and of course the open previous or recently closed window only opens the on with no tabs. Is it possible to save the all tabs, or a "master" or "default" window?

It's so frustrating that the keyboard shortcut for closing tabs is right beside the one to quit Firefox. I've lost countless hours because of this, and it's so easy to accidentally do. Is there a way to keep this from happening? A simple "Are you sure" confirmation dialog would be great, or I really like the Chrome "hold command-Q" to exit feature. This seemingly simple function is proving extremely difficult to accomplish.

Yes, I'm aware of session restore, but (1) It does not preserve my window arrangement. I use multiple desktops for various tasks, and they each have related browser windows. (2) I need to see webpages exactly as they were when I opened them. Sessions expire, dynamic pages are refreshed, content is removed etc. That is all lost.

I do not want to disable session restore completely. It can still be useful. But, I do not want to trigger session restore automatically every time. Manual activation is ideal.

regarding: "browser.tabs.warnOnClose" I do not want a warning for closing multiple tabs. I often have many windows open and that warning gets annoying. It also doesn't prevent me from accidentally quitting when I only have one tab open.

I tried setting browser.warnOnQuit to true, but it's ignored.

I simply want a confirmation when I use the keyboard shortcut to QUIT. That's it. No side effects. Can Firefox do this?

Hey!

First time I get that, I usually lose my tabs due to my mistake but this morning after starting my PC all the tabs were gone with no option to restore or any error message. I backed up my previous session json and other files by hand but every time i copy it back into my profile folder and rename it sessionstore.jsonlz4 it just gets deleted after I open firefox and none of my old tabs get loaded. I scrounged the files before and saw that they contain my lost tabs, I just can't seem to restore them. I tried reinstalling firefox too but that didn't help.

Did the restore system change or is the backup corrupt ? Thanks!

Hey There!

I have set photos.google.com to automatically open in a tab container called "Google."

Now I would like remove this automatic function, as i might be opening that website in different container tab, since i have a mutipule google accounts spread across different google accounts.

Is there a way to remove or unlearn the "Always Open This Tab in a Container" for a specific domain?

As far as I can tell you can only change the container the automatically opens, but you can't just unlearn it.

Any suggestions?

Maybe add a unlearn option to the menu in the attached picture?

I had so many problems with it, I went through downloading different "session save" add-ons, I know what solution you guys will give me, I've done most of the posts' instructions, this is more of a complaint post.

When Windows boots up and you had Firefox open before you shut down last time, it will open anew, automatically, with your previous session, but it's on the end of the list of things that launch on startup.

Forgetting you had it on and clicking the browser again, will open a new session with the home screen instead of the previous session, then when actual session Firefox launches it's a 50/50 whether it will be in home screen as well, or actually in your previous session. Now here is the fun part. If you close the new window with just the home tab, that will now become the latest session, so your previous one will be deleted.

How to get around that? Move your home tab into your session instead of closing the window, it works 100% of the time... But can we, not start a new session if you close the home screen, or if you close just 1 tab it doesn't count as a different session. I dunno, just throwing ideas out there.

Hope this reaches those with the same issue, or people in positions to fix the issue, if anyone wants to use session saving add-ons, I took fancy to Tab Session Manager and Easy Session Manager, though not perfect, I don't advise for over 150 tabs.

I'll try to be as active on this thread as I can be, thanks for reading through! :>

Hi,

I know this is been asked and discussed multiple times over the years. But the current [CTRL+TAB] and [CTRL+PGUP/PGDOWN] are less that optimum for people who use Mac's.

We like to use CMD+[CTRL/SHIFT]+Left/Right. If there would a menu item for the two operations then it's quite easily do do via keyboard settings. But as that has been removed we're stuck with something which doesn't really work on notebook as there aren't any PGUP/PGDOWN keys ....

Please make it programmable or add the "Next Tab..." and "Previous Tab..." back to the Window menu.

Cheers.

There is a little robot in my search bar, that makes my search bar orange with a lighter orange stripe pattern. When I hover my mouse over the robot it says "this browser is under remote control". I have googled and looked everywhere for more information about this, as I am completely unaware on what it is. Could someone tell me what it is and what it does? I really just want to make sure it isn't a virus, and that I don't need to keep covering my camera anymore.

Thank you so much.

Hello, please forgive my language since it's not my native one, I hope it will be understandible...

Since the last firefox update, I've got an issue with my tabs. I use a lot of them (3000+) and it wasn't a problem until now : when I started my computer, firefox launched all the tabs of my previous session, but they loaded only when I selected one of them. I could still launch other program, play games etc

Now when I launch my computer, my memory is sucked dry by firefox (50% to 80%), firefox take a massive amount of time to launch and load my previous session (5 secondes before update, 5-10 minutes now) and I can't use it without some serious lags. If I try to open new tabs it's getting worst and worst. I've try to restart it, repair it etc, but when I try to reload my tabs with a backup, the same issue happen again...

Does someone has an idea to fix this ? Or what the problem can be ?

as seen https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1233468

Managing container still isn't easy. You can reopen a tab in a "no container" by clicking ON the tab itself but this option isn't available in the "always open this site in"

There NO option to move the "X coloc" tab to a "no" container.

For site that open new tab it doesn't open new tab in the same container

Exemple : Spotify i managing 2 account (one for me, one for the kids). I chose to alway open it in the "green" container, but as i try to login with Gmail while in the green, it open in a new "no container" tab instead of opening in a "green one". Worst i can see it going from green to orange no black.

So, only way to really do it for not : "X coloc tab" an use a private browsing

Mac OS 10.10.2 Firefox 78.9

Problem: When I go back from full screen mode, the half top of tabs(more like the 2/3 part to the tab) becomes not clickable. Only way to solve it is just to restart the browser.

There is another thing that could provide a bit more info. No matter whether I've ever made it full screen or not, the 2/3 top area of the tabs will never turn grey when I put my mouse on it.

No add-ons and themes installed. Tried safe mode and it didn't works.

The same bug exists on the other Mac, which runs an older version of firefox.
