Old closed tab randomly reloads - multiple devices

Many, many months ago I did mundane search and opened a webpage in a new tab, as per normal. Nothing particularly stood out about this search and when I was done, I closed the tab. I didn't do anything different. I didn't save a bookmark or change any settings. I just looked at the webpage and then closed it when I was done. (It was a web article on some random tech site, if that matters)

Anyway, now whenever I open up my Firefox browser there seems to be a random chance that this previously closed tab will open on loading. And when I say random chance, I'd say about 1 in 5 chance. It doesn't always happen.

Just to be clear: I do have the browser set to restore my previous sessions. This is a setting I want to have on. However, this tab was not part of my previous session as I specifically closed it - and continue to close it every time it opens itself. Also, my Homepage is set to default and nothing else.

Not only that, but there are two very peculiar details about this case that make it very, very strange: 1. When I originally opened (and closed) this tab, I was using normal Firefox. I have since switched to Firefox Nightly. All of my other tabs that I like to keep open had to be searched and loaded up manually, one by one, after I did the switch. This one tab, however, is just showing up on its own. 2. Opening Firefox on a separate devices (second desktop PC, laptop, android phone) will occasionally load up this tab.

I do have my browsers set to sync, which is what I'm assuming is why it's following me around. But I don't understand why nor how to stop this specific page from loading after I keep closing it time and time again. Plus, why aren't any of my old tabs from my old Firefox browser following this same behavior after moving to Nightly? - I've closed hundreds, if not thousands of tabs. Why is this one following me around?

I recently switched from Brave to FF. An annoying problem is that whenever I click web links in external programs such as Microsoft Teams, Outlook etc Firefox always opens it in a new window instead of a new tab like Brave did. Also the window it opens does not have my extensions enabled, indicating that it is some form of incognito or web view window or something? These are my settings.

How can I solve this issue?

After restarting my pc, signed in on another windows account, which does not have Firefox installed. Then, signed in to my account, opened Firefox (Developer Edition 112.0b9 (64-bit)), however, all of the tabs, pinned tabs and history were gone. Can't restore from the menu, can't restore from the Profile folder, because files in it were overwritten when I signed in to my account (according to time modified). Anybody been in the same situation? Any advice? Thx

Since the last Firefox update to 108.01, or that is when I first noticed this problem. When I have many tabs open right to the end of the tab bar the new tab + disappears off the screen. The more tabs I open it does correctly automatically reduce the width of the tabs but pushes the + tab off to the right, this never use to happen before it always kept the new tab + in view.

Whenever I close my app, it doesn't restore my tabs. Since I checked "Confirm before closing multiple tabs", any attempt to close Firefox will warn me. It should not be doing this. I have been using Firefox for almost a decade now, and it started acting differently all of a sudden (most likely after an update).

When I go into Firefox & I bring up my bank for example if I go to another tab to bring up something else most times it won't do it. So then I have to shut it down & open it up again which is intensly annoying. This never used to happen say a year ago.

Suddenly today my browser had switched any current tab to the bottom of my window, but it also only lets me see one at a time..which means I can't see multiple tabs open unless I close the current one. My tab bar is gone entirely and was up-top as it's always been, just under the URL box.

I didn't hit any key combos that I know of that would cause this, and I can't seem to find anyone else with the same problem when I search for a solution. Does anyone know what I can do to fix this?? It's very odd and annoying, I've never had it happen before now..

I took a screen-shot of the problem, showing what happens when I open a site or any tab:

Thank you very much for taking a look and any help with this strange issue,

Ctrl + T no longer opens a new tab, but instead brings me to the third tab I have open. If I have less than 3 tabs open, it either does nothing (for one tab) or brings me to the second/third (for two or three tabs). Other keyboard shortcuts are not glitched like this. Why is this happening and how I can fix it?

I have already reinstalled Firefox and restarted my computer, but neither of those have done anything.

I am running Apple OS High Sierra, 10.13.6 on an older iMac Mid 2011. My Preferences have always been set, or checked, General_Tabs "Open links in Tabs instead of NEW Window."

The result is a Firefox screen full of Single Windows with Single Tabs. Some Windows I may continue to add Tabs to but most of the time I copy the link from the NEW Window and paste the link on the older Window. If I am in a hurry the result will be many many Opened NEW Windows with one or two NEW Tabs. See attachments. This has been going on for at least 6 months now.

Note your checkbox titled "Email me when someone answers the thread" does not work but please email me at "[email removed from public]".

Thanks in advance!
