So Amazon audible popped up a firefox session with a talking book after I shutdown. So firefox saved this session to restore next time.

I shut down firefox while I:

1. I understand the file sessionstore.jsonlz4 in session store is a backup of the old tabs. So I saved it

2. I then copied it to the sessionstore folder under the profile. (I only have one folder under the profile folder so it must be the correct target). As a precaution, I also copied the file and renamed it previous.jsonlz4 and recovery.jsonlz4

But I cant get firefox to load it. Firefox stubbornly loads the tabs i just used and then creates new files called previous.jsonlz4 and recovery.jsonlz4 which overwrites my backed up files

So my question is how do I make firefox use the backup file I saved?

TIA/gary

The default browser behavior when I click on a link on a page is to open a pop up window in the current tab. In these cases I'm clicking a link on the pg to my social media account in order to publish a new post linking to my own content.

The new unwanted behavior on clicking the link is for it to open my social media account in a new tab. I want clicking that link to open a pop up of my social media account in the current tab. Is there any about:config setting controlling this, which I can change?

Firefox keeps pinning ads for random pages that I have never visited. It happens inconsistently, but sometimes when I open Firefox there will be a random ad page pinned. Even if I unpin it, and reopen Firefox the same ad page will be pinned again. I have tried looking it up in settings but could find anything, that make it pop up.

Updated to version 89 and am not pleased with the visual/graphic interface changes. The tabs are very difficult to read. The new graphic layout fails to clearly identify each tab as a distinct entity or thing to be selected. The text just looks like a long string of text and in some instances of long names on a tab the text just fades away to nothingness.

Please make each tab a "distinct thing by creating a different colored edge on three (3) sides of the tab. Or perhaps have 3 levels of lightening/darkening the table to differentiate it from the background on which it is displayed.

Does the development team have a graphic designer and/or have the changes reviewed by a group of graphic designers?

Please change this please or put the user in charge of how they want it displayed.

So i updated Firefox, and now the Tabs are not being shown at the top, in fact they are at the bottom but i can only see and select them when i go to customize toolbar, so how do i fix this and move them back to where they were?

Also seems i can't add a new tab unless i open a link in new tab.

images show what i mean in how i can only see other tabs in customize toolbars and the other when its not in customize

is it possible to configure all new tabs in v89 to be the same as my homepage, which in my case is Google.com? I don't like the Firefox home because when you start to enter a search, you get thus list of visited websites etc ... which is very annoying and gets in the way of my work (not all search methodologies are the same).

Patrick thank you

So the new tab bar has been dissolved together into a mush of text, there is no definition between the tabs and the background.

My eyesight isn't great and the new update has made Firefox very difficult to use. Please bring back the tab defining features and the contrast between the tabs and the background. 'Modern' doesn't always mean better!

It would also be nice if you would respect the general Windows settings that make these components visible. Discontinuity between different apps makes it very difficult to navigate the browser.

All of a suddenly my webpages are about 2" square. I can force them to zoom, or stretch them but I'd really like to skip these steps and have things back the way they were before the latest update. I've tried several suggestions to no avail. Once fully opened, the rest all open fine. Anyone? TIA Alexa

Subject says it all. "How to revert to 'browser.tabs.ontop=false' functionality in Firefox 89.x?" I hate the Proton layout where tabs are now positioned at the top. I want to revert to what I had before — via an add-on, I think — because the new style creates visual dissonance. I HATE the new style. I want a layout that does not do my head in. I do not care that someone(s) in the development team thinks tabs.ontop is better; it is not better for me.

Hi all,

when opening a new tab, i activated the Google Search engine to search for content, yet when i start typing in that Google Search, the cursor immediately jumps into the address bar and searches there (which i dont want of course, this breaks the search engine altogether).

Is there a way to make the Search engine work and not let the cursor go into the address bar? Even copy and paste into the Search engine doesnt work anymore.

Regards

Help! In Firefox 89 (as in all previous) all open tabs lined up at the top (first screen shot). When I updated to 90, they disappeared and only one (current) tab shows up at bottom right (second screen shot). I cannot find a way to see all open tabs as before - only when I close the current tab will the entire lineup of open tabs show for a moment and then go back to the single current open tab. I can't work this way and it's driving me crazy. I've searched online, tried changing settings in about:config and nothing seems to want to put all open tabs back up top where they were. What am I missing? (More - I am trying to upload a screen shot and just get the spinning gear. The file is below the upload size limit. I'm going to try submitting this anyway.)
