Whenever a disk is full and you download, the download fails without explanation.

Instead of the download simply failing, Firefox should tell the user that the disk is full.

The first time it happened I thought that the problem was with the downloads, until I saw that my removable disk was full.

But if a warning message appears, no guessing will be needed.

We use the same browser for work, for a school study, while shopping or while trying to book hotels for a vacations. It's not uncommon to move between these contexts, which leaves the typical tabline with dozens of tabs open.

Performance issues aside, it makes using the browser feel cumbersome.

I believe working on such a feature would be great. A similar concept can be shown here https://refresh.study/

The tab dropdown menu normally has a bar down the side which shows which tabs are onscreen at the moment. With the latest update this has disappeared, to be replaced by a single bar marking the currently open tab.

It seems silly, but that bar made it easier to control and limit my number of open tabs (which is quite anxiety-inducing, at least for me).

Is there a skin to restore the old appearance, or (even better) an option to restore the setting?

Sorry for the title/question name.

I have used FF for a long time now. A **LONG** time ago, I could install an addon which is since not supported.

Some of the things I miss which I would like to see added to FF: Although there is now an "Open in new tab" option it is still a bit short of offerings.

1 - "Open in new tab and switch" 2 - Add names to tabs. Sometimes it would be nice to search for a tab with a more appropriate name. 3 - (Though maybe asking a bit too much) Coloured tabs. Un-loaded, Loaded but not active, *THIS* tab. Though *THIS* tab is sort of easy to see, when I am researching something and have a lot of tabs open seeing "where" (which) tab is the active one is handy. Explination of the three colours: -- Un-loaded - (When loading a previous session) This tab is not yet loaded. -- Loaded but not active - You have been to this page this time, but it is not the active tab. -- *THIS* - well, just so it is easy to separate from the other loaded tabs.

I have RA with fine motor control problems.

At times I have difficulty in getting the cursor on the pinned tabs. I don't have problems seeing so don't need to zoom in to make everything larger, I just need wider pinned tabs.

I use FF 63.0.1 on my Win10 laptop and need to make the pinned tabs wider for ease of use.

I found information about making unpinned tabs wider in about:config but can't find anything for the pinned tabs.

Thank you for your time.

Suggestion to reimagine tabs-bookmarks relationship

Hi there! I always end up having many tabs open in several windows and today I clued into how much time I waste trying to find the right window. I currently have 128 tabs open over 5 windows and every time I shut down and start up Firefox I "restore previous session". I started looking today for a way to label my windows so that I can have them as categories like "Music", "School", "Health", "General Learning", etc. I use a Macbook and use the 4 finger swipe down or up all the time and wanted to see my windows labeled to clearly see the types of tabs I have open regardless of what tab was up front. There are a few plug ins that do that but I don't like the permissions that they need like "Access your data for all websites". it seemed excessive for just a label.

Then I thought. well it's basically a visual bookmark system. but I don't use bookmarks because everything disappears once I put it in bookmarks - it becomes less relevant when it's next to things from 8 years ago. here's what I imagine:

Primary idea:

- windows and bookmark folders are virtually the same thing, and tabs and bookmarks are virtually the same thing.

- I can command-click or option-click on one of the bookmarks in a folder and it opens in a window that is labeled as the bookmark folder name

--- I can command-click-drag to open several bookmarks as tabs in a window that is labeled as the bookmark folder name

--- new bookmarks I open from that folder open as tabs in the window of the same name if it's already open


Secondary thoughts for better flow:

- button in top corner of window will open a list of all the tabs open in that window but the list will be wide enough that you can actually read what the tab is instead of just the first 5 letters.

--- this way I can easily reorganize my open tabs.

--- below list of open tabs in that window is a list of the other bookmarks in that folder that aren't opened that I can click on to open or drag up into the the "open" list and drop it where I want that tab to open up.

--- if you want to get real fancy I can drag the tab from the list back up to the top corner and the other open window lists open up so I can move it to a different window - alternatively I can right click on it and select "move to" or "copy to" and choose a window or bookmark folder.

- colouring or aging can show how recently each tab or bookmark was opened - This link shows what I mean https://trello.com/power-ups/55a5d917446f517774210012/card-aging

- Turn on an option that when I hover over the title it shows a small render of the site (in bookmark menu or tab list)


Troubles to think about:

- Discerning between short term bookmarks (stored tabs) and long term bookmarks (regular bookmarks) - perhaps add a "lock" to the bookmarks you want to keep.

--- some bookmarks i want permanently saved until I delete the bookmark (how it works now)

--- some I want to be more transient so that when I close the tab it means I'm done with it (how I treat tabs now)

--- when implementing the "move to" or "copy to" suggestion above, you may want that move or copy to be a permanent or transient bookmark. I suggest keeping the "bookmark" word to mean permanent so perhaps a "bookmark to" option.

--- Perhaps closing a window doesn't remove them from the bookmarks folder, but closing the tabs individually does unless it's "locked"

All of this will help me to keep my tabs to a minimum when I start firefox and when I want to pick up on a different subject I can easily open all of the relevant tabs - most of which aren't "bookmark" worthy at this point, they're just there till I deal with them and close them. If you have any questions please feel free to reach out. I feel this would dramatically increase my organization and workflow so I'm here to help

Sincerely, Rick

This is for the mozilla firefox developers: I wonder why firefox is getting less and less customizable by default as it was in earlier days. Now with Firefox 65 again you repeadedly change a lot so we have to look around for new tuning tips again, that is no fun!

Please, implement a customize option to get the Tabs bar on Bottom (under the bookmarks toolbar) without having to tune the chrome.css, also tab height and width should be customizable for everyone. For all users. Also the functions how tabs and links open is too less so we always have to install addons or tune about:config if possible. Like: - New tabs from all entries url bar, searchbar, bookmarks - open tab (also new ones) next to current

Firefox should be different from chrome and other browsers and should give the user more options to customize. Thanks Claudy

Mozillas regularily forces updates in some applications, regardless if plug-ins will run in the updated version. This mechanism is obviously not meant to be blocked by the user in any way.

For me - and I think, I am not alone - Firefox is only the browser of choice thanks to certain plug-ins. Speed, security, design, usability - Firefox and Thunderbird are worthless, if my essential plug-ins are absent.

I design my systems to be near maintenance free, so the last thing I need is a browser update that smashes everything and makes my users mad. Workarounds for the annoying screwed up update policy is costing me ever more time.

Please, can you: - build in a routine to check the availbility for selected plug-ins BEFORE updating - advanced: if there are multiple target versions, automatically select the newest one that

 supports the whole set of selected plug-ins

- ask the user if he wants an update

and first of all:

- refrain reliably from updating when the USER or ADMINISTRATOR does not want it; ask him so.

 --> Do not update just because someone clicked on 'About'

PLEASE.

This is not an issue of being inflexible to change. Some people are unable to function without text for identification. Icons need to have three options. Text. Text under icon. Icon. This was previously available, and MUST be returned to the interface. Likewise, the ability to use pages, not tabs, and to have the tab disappear when it is a single tab, is a function that is necessary. The narrow screens that now exist lack vertical real estate, and anything that wastes that space is a fault, not a perk. Until Firefox fixes these issues, I have ceased using it, and now use other, more adaptable, browsers.

Hi, A few hours ago I cleared the last hour of recent history, FYI I checked browsing & download history, form & search history and cache when doing it but after that I realised all my closed windows and tabs were lost except the ones being opened.

In the session backup folder there is only 2 files, recovery.baklz4 and recovery.jsonlz4. Actually I just checked, there is 3 now, previous.jsonlz4, but they're all pretty much the same, after I lost those windows and tabs, and the former two seem to be constantly saving themselves, not sure why, is this supposed to be happening?

Usually there were upgrade backup files such as [upgrade.jsonlz4-date] but I don't have them in [sessionstore-backups], has something changed or is there something wrong with my browser?

When I realised my closed windows were gone I immediately made a backup but it was too late, they were all after I've lost the closed tabs and windows, and there were only two files (the files constantly saving I mentioned earlier).

So how should I proceed? I want to get my session restored but the last usable session backup I've made was months ago.
