Hi,

I just downloaded Firefox on my new PC (laptop) but for an unknown reason opening a link in a new tab doesn't work. Opening a link in a new window doesn't work either, and opening the link in a new private window does not work either. It is getting frustrating to say the least, as I've never encountered this problem before and I have no idea what to do. :)

Thank you kindly in advance for your help!

For last few weeks whenever I open a new web browser in firefox the screen display now open slightly off screen with the top having moved up (and also a little to the right) making the scroll bar barely visible and tabs not visible. I can grab and move sometimes but it has become a consistent problem and I do not know why. Nothing has changed that I am aware of. How can this issue be fixed? Thank you

I HAVE SYSTEM RESTORE ON MY FIREFOX. When I purposely restarted my computer, for an unknown reason, a session came up but my previous session did not automatically restore as usually it does. I did something in that window and was thinking about something else and deleted it, ie: the session. OH S _ _ _! Just lost my restore previous session opportunity..... I opened another session (and restore previous session was grayed - not available) and have not closed my session nor re-started since. Is there any other way to go back and recover my lost session windows and tabs? .... not from the previous session that I accidentally closed, but from the session before that? Thanks in advance. George

Hi there

since a few weeks it happens daily that by accident I transfer a tab into a new firefox window obviously by moving/clicking the mouse quickly in a way that leads to this new window. then I need to copy the email adress, close the new window and make in the original window again a new tab and paste it there and place it on the right spot. not really handy... not sure what changed in firefox since this did not happen in the past. did there change sth or how better said how can I avoid that this is happening, can I lock tabs that they will not get a new window. does someone know this problem? Thanks Andy

[Both antimalware operations run - Malwarebytes premium trial, and RogueKiller (in Safe Mode) came back as there being no detections / clean, BTW; does that mean any infection hasn't migrated to my PC from FF?]

Tried accessing 'places' file on my desktop as seemingly directed; cannot open with another browser (Opera) nor otherwise - to further clarify, malicious tab in question will not allow me to: close it - by either clicking on its 'x', or right-clicking to use 'Close Tab' option in pulldown menu, nor use the previous page arrow, or return to home / the Google search engine screen, ANY other tab which is part of that session.....is there any way to change the default function so it DOESN'T automatically land every time on THAT precise tab upon reopening, and I can then go to History / previous sites visited to delete? Again, there are a LOT of webpages the links of which I haven't had a chance to copy & paste into an email for myself, and I'm hoping that completely eliminating them all, can be avoided......thanks

In chrome if you drag a tab away from the tab bar it becomes its own window while still dragging and as such you can drag a tag out and snap-it to the screen edge in one motion.... But... in Firefox a dragged tab only become a window after you left it go and the windows title bar isnt even positioned where it was dragged to.

So is there a way to make my firefox tabs behave like chrome tabs do?

I move my tabs around a lot and this is literally the only reason i use chrome instead of firefox.

Hi! I have a lot of tabs in Mozilla browser. Sometimes I open one of them separately - but mostly I work in one window. I closed that window with loads of tabs - but after I started it again - Mozilla showed me just 1 tab. I entered History and tried to restore closed windows - and got all 1-tab-windows for the last couple of days - but not the window with all my tabs! I tried to restore the reserve copy - https://skr.sh/i/301220/1VuOM7Wm.jpg?download=1&name=%D0%A1%D0%BA%D1%80%D0%B8%D0%BD%D1%88%D0%BE%D1%82%2030-12-2020%2013:58:34.jpg - but none of them works!

Hello, For some reason my Firefox upgraded without my permission last night. I usually refuse the pop ups because every time there's an update it takes me forever to get things back the way I like them.

That said, this time around I can NOT get the tabs to reposition underneath the address bar. HELP?

I have this in my userChrome.css which I believe is where the setting / option should be.


@namespace url(http://www.mozilla.org/keymaster/gatekeeper/there.is.only.xul); /* TABS: on bottom */

  1. navigator-toolbox toolbar:not(#nav-bar):not(#toolbar-menubar) {-moz-box-ordinal-group:10}
  2. TabsToolbar {-moz-box-ordinal-group:1000!important}
  1. TabsToolbar {
position: absolute !important;
bottom: 0 !important;
width: 100vw !important;

Why? I note there are over 2300 people who have reported this issue. The Extension, Tabs Backup and Restore looses saved sessions and replaces them with sessions with only a few tabs. 1. What can I do until someone fixes FF? 2. When it is going to be fixed? Is there an extension that works to restore pinned tabs?

I have now spent several hours re-pinning tabs.

Hello guys, I have trouble for a few days, when I open a new Tab, Firefox automatically switched to it, whereas this behavior is disabled in the settings, for a long time... As you can see on the screenshot. I try to reactivate it, and nothing happened, so I disabled it, but no result either.

Do you guys notice the same trouble ?

As a webgroup site manager I usually have a single window open dedicated to multiple pages within the site. I can have as many as a half-dozen tabs ALL with the same name - (then the page-in-use). But all I can see/read is the first part. Is there a way to 'customize' the contents/name/words showing on a tab? Or a way to change the color of the tabs to help differentiate which one is which? I'd like to be able to change "main@beta.groups.io | Messages" to just "Messages" because "main@beta.groups.io | Pending Messages" looks exactly the same until out-of-sight in the tab. Or, I'd be happy enough to make "Messages" green and "Pending Messages" to orange.
