I had to delete Firefox on my iPhone because links in emails wouldn't open anymore. Yes, it was set for default.

When I re-installed it, the tabs don't close. I hit the X to make a webpage go away and open a new tab. Hit that X when I'm through. Then close an empty Firefox on my phone.

When I reopen Firefox, I get all these little miniature webpages of the tabs I closed. I don't want them. I closed them because I was through. This is wasting my time making me close them again and again ...

Please tell me how to set Firefox on my iPhone so that when I open it I get my homepage with shortcuts I have chosen and nothing else.

Thank you, Roxanne

I would like to use the Firefox Container tabs. I understand how they group tabs in different catagories keeping cookies separate and making your browsing more private. I use an add-on tool that groups tabs so that I can open an entire set of tools at once. Can I use the Firefox Container tabs in a similar way? I'd like to be able to select one container and have all of the tabs in that container open at once.

I've been trying to reply to my previous question here: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/que.../1440060, but my reply ends with an error - c attached. Therefore, I'm starting this new thread.

First, thank you for the answers. I have run into an issue and also have a follow-up question.

Follow up question: A while ago, I changed the autoplay settings in about:config, but I noticed they reverted to default. Do these settings reset with major browser updates? Or could it be that the settings' names changed, resulting in the default value being applied? Should I periodically check these values to ensure they haven't changed?

Issue: I updated the settings in about:config as mentioned in https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1440060 by cor-el. It appears to have stopped the autoplay of videos. However, after browsing Google News and Yahoo News articles for about 30 minutes, my browser crashes. This happens under the same usage pattern as before. The browser becomes unresponsive, and if I click on anything, I see the rainbow Apple spinning wheel. Eventually, I have to force quit the browser. See attached.

Thank you!

Starting with the most recent update, 123.0, when I ctrl-click a link in Twitter or Blue Sky, the link opens in a new tab, but Firefox does NOT jump to the tab automatically. In any other site, the browser performs as expected. My options are set correctly, and all the relevant about:config settings are set to False. Using Windows 10, 22h2.

Hello! I'm trying to configure Firefox not to switch from the current tab, when I open multiple bookmarks by either middle click bookmark folder or right click the bookmark folder and select Open All Bookmarks. I've already set about:config browser.tabs.loadBookmarksInBackground True browser.tabs.loadDivertedInBackground True browser.tabs.loadInBackground True

If I'm browsing a page, and then decide to open several bookmarks that are in a bookmark folder, either via middle click or right click->Open All Bookmarks, Firefox will still switch to the first open bookmark.

I've tried Shift+Middle click and this one opens the bookmarks, without switching from the current tab. And Ctrl+Shift+right click->Open All Bookmarks and this one opens the bookmarks, without switching from the current tab.

So how do I configure Firefox to just use middle click on a bookmark folder, and then not have it switch to the first open bookmark? Thank you!

Hello I find it hard to select the tabs, the cursor has to be just in the right narrow area for selection, which is just under the tab name's text. Same for selecting the "X" to close the tab, the cursor has to be just under the X for selection, anywhere else does not work. Thanks much Daniel

If you type "% [search term]" in your search bar, it will try to search your existing tabs for any tabs that fit the criteria. The problem is, firefox is making odd decisions on what to display in the search results. I was under the impression that Firefox would prioritize the most frequently used tabs in the search results, but this no longer appears to be true, or the criteria used is more complex than that.

As an example, in the attached screenshot, i am searching for tabs with the keyword "Stellaris". But for some reason, Firefox refuses to show me any reddit tabs with "Stellaris" in them, and is instead showing a list of tabs that are much less frequently used.

Is there any way to get the search results to prioritize the most frequently used tabs, change what shows up in the search results, etc? I know i can type "stellaris reddit" to narrow down the search results, but i would prefer that the search results prioritize the msot frequently used tabs.

Using Firefox 115.7 ESR btw.
