With the newest firefox (72.0.2) I notice the tabs changing color as the mouse passes over them. A sort of greyish overlay appears over the background that is present before the mouse crosses into the tab. The selected tab does not change color; all the others do. This is really distracting to me; I never noticed it before. How do I get it to stop? (userchrome methods are fine.)

Is it a bug or a design decision. I mean if I have a lot of opened tabs and I intend to close just one tab, then a slight delay in releasing the key combination would result in closing rest of the tabs. Shouldn't it be like Press and Release key combination to perform the corresponding action which would ensure the action is performed just once. That is what it was like on Chrome and Edge.

if I "Open in New Tab", how can I (in that new tab) eliminate the address of the 'opened from' tab which always appears after a question mark?

For example, a BBC news article cites a report from the U.N. Opening the link to the U.N. report in a new tab leads to an address such as “http://www.un.org/budget/?bbc etc” when what I need for citation is to the UN report is just “http://www.un.org/budget/”. In citing reports for an article it is time consuming to open in a new tab, highlight the actual address (but not the ? and referred-from address which follows) then open the actual address in a new tab so it can be entered as a footnote in what I am writing. I would like the address to open in a new tab without the referred-from info.

I don't see why Mozilla just can't let people put the tabs where they want and be done with it. Stuff like this used to be one of the great appeals and strengths of FF. It just feels like, which each new update, FF loses more and more of its soul.

I've had no problem with Firefox until yesterday. When I right-click the Firefox icon it won't open a new window. I've never had this problem before. At the time this occurred I started having problems with the Windows 10 start up not opening and not displaying my apps and the Windows Picture editor presenting me with a black screen and not allowing me to import photos from my camera or iPhone. I uninstalled and re-installed Firefox and it still doesn't open a new window when I right click the icon. I can't find information on how to solve this anywhere and am hoping someone here can help me. Thank you for any help you can provide.

I had multiple Firefox windows open in which I had organized different categories of things I was working on. The first window in the group was my primary window, in which I had all of my active projects, which the tabs help me remember to do.

Last night there was apparently a power outage, and when I opened my laptop the windows were out of order, with the primary window at the end of the group. Naturally I kept navigating to the wrong window because of this, so I attempted to close the windows one by one, intending to reopen them in the correct order.

I accidentally closed the last window, however, thus closing Firefox entirely. When I reopened it, the Windows and Tabs history were completely erased (see attachment). Is that supposed to happen? Is there no way to maintain a backup of this history that can be restored, like a snapshot that is generated once a week or so? Moreover, is there no way to recover my closed windows?

I have just done a Windows System Restore, but it had no impact at all on my Firefox windows or history. Is there anything else that I can attempt?

This has been happening over the last month or so. I'll be browsing with multiple tabs open and then for no apparent reason a few of my tabs will just close themselves. I'm not clicking on anything or using any shortcuts. Without any input on my part a group of maybe 3 or 4 tabs just suddenly close themselves, while the rest of my tabs remain. It doesn't seem to matter what pages the tabs are open to: google, amazon, whatever... Anybody have any ideas what's causing this? I've already tried updating, restarting, and disabling add-ons.

I regularly have 4 to 6 pinned tabs open, but would still like to be able to open my regular tabs with the `cmd+1–9` shortcuts. Is there a way to configure Firefox to use a different shortcut for the pinned tabs? It would be great to be able to have something like `cmd+option+1–9` be the pinned tabs, with `cmd+1–9` be the regular tabs.

Is it possible to always show the tabs list menu button in Firefox?

When a window has only a few tabs open, the menu button for the list of tabs, which appears at the right hand end of the tab bar, is not shown. This menu button only seems to appear once you have more than around 15 tabs open in the window.

However, before you reach that number of open tabs, the individual tabs become quite narrow and it is still easier and quicker to choose a tab from the menu than by hovering over the narrow tab titles.

Is there an about:config setting or extension that will make this tab list menu button stay visible at all times?

First, I just had a major system crash, had to re-install Linux Mint and through my own stupidity, relied on the wrong backups for my firefox configuration. So I lost my Firefox 52 install with all of my extensions (that still worked). Now, I'm running v. 57 Quantum, and a few things aren't working correctly.

First, the MAJOR problem: when I open a link from a bookmark, it's clobbering an existing tab that I was using (that's why it was open, obviously). That is completely unsat and can not be allowed to continue. How do I correct this? I can't find the option under settings-->tabs to fix this problem.

Second issue (major annoyance): I can no longer create a bookmark directly in a bookmark folder on the bookmark toolbar. I used to be able to open that bookmark folder, and the first option was to bookmark the currently open tab. That option has vanished, and i use that all the time. How do I restore that?

Actually, one more issue: I have two tabs that are pinned and are supposed to be protected (i.e., nothing can clobber them, and I can't close them without deliberately turning the protection off (context menu right-clicking on tab). I need that back, because for some reason, firefox thinks it's ok to open a bookmark in those tabs, too, when it most definitely is NOT ok.
