Is there a way to use Firefox without a tab bar or any tabs showing? In the past it has been possible to do something like untabbed browsing and maybe have several windows on the task bar but no tabs. the new tabs and their bar are pretty large and take up alot of space on the screen, I've tried several "themes" and none seem to restore the utility of the older view. Thanks.

In version 89 running on windows there is no "options" setting in the three bar file. Previously I had things running so that if I opened a new window it came up with my chossen browser (Startpage). Now if I do that it opens a new tab instead of a window and does so in Firefox. So then I try to find "options" but its not there. So I go to settings and it offers me an option to open in tabs instead of new windows. Implication is that the default is a new window. SO I make sure thats not ticked and I close firefox and reopen it. No difference. Then I come at it the other way ie to tell the tab to despay my home page but it wont let me do that either. Choices there are only a blank page or (yes you guessed it) Firefox. All help gratefully recieved.

As the title suggests, sometimes when I launch a site marked for a container, it will open a new tab and show the URL but not load the page. Refreshing doesn't fix it, and I have to copy/paste the URL into a new container tab. This only happens when opening from a shortcut, not from history search or typing the URL. It seems to be happening across all containers I have. I'm using Windows 10 and the latest Firefox. Any help appreciated!

For the 5th time now an update has moved my tabs to the top. And congrats guys, this latest update deleted all my bookmarks and my logins. If this version is to win back "defectors" I really doubt you will. You're getting worse rather than better. So anyway, I have read many solutions on the forums and none have worked. Can someone please send me the code I need to put into userchrome.css that will get my tabs back below the address bar. And if you want to get more users, why not add an option in the menu for tab placement?!? How many browsers require the users to know code for something as simple as that? Or maybe the other browsers don't allow for tabs below. If that's the case I suppose I should be grateful. lol. Thanks either way.

I'm absolutely furious about behaviour of tabs in the latest firefox update. I haven't change anything and I cannot play youtube videos and I've been able to do it normally until this last, bloody update! I've tried to disable media.wmfv9 or some other crap and it didn't work. I've tried anything in terms of mozilla support and it didn't FKN worked!!! I cannot stand another "oops, your tab has crashed" or "oops, firefox just eat ur ram and doesn't give a damn about them features, please restart it". You have like 2 weeks to fix it or I'm migrating to comodo dragon. FK U EOT. Just fix it.

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.

This has been happening for the last several Firefox updates, and it's an incredibly frustrating issue that makes me not want to ever exit the browser or update it. I'm not sure when or why exactly it started happening, but I believe it was after an update at least 3+ months ago.

For some reason, when the browser opens from having been closed due to restart or update etc, and it restores my prior browsing session - it only ever restores 3 pinned tab as pinned. For some reason, it's always specifically just 3 tabs, and it's usually whatever the first 3 pinned tabs were. I always have at least 10 pinned tabs open due to the nature of my job. The tabs that are no longer pinned are restored in what looks like a random order, mixed in with my other tabs. Also, other tabs that weren't pinned, are restored out of order. This makes it difficult to find a tab and get it back to the order it should be in.

I always just have a single window open. There are many tabs open as I work with a lot of cloud software at the same time.

i have tried starting a whole new session from scratch, even uninstalling and reinstalling the browser. Doesn't seem to help, the issue returns on every launch. This looks like a bug to me, but I didn't find anything on it.

I've followed the advice in all the threads I can find from the last three years about how to handle a situation where you cannot use "restore previous session" in history.

As of approximately 7am this morning my computer was fine, I closed the lid (to let it sleep) while I was at work etc, but found that my laptop had restarted when I went to wake it up tonight around 8pm. It appears as though at 7:47 there was a crash of some sort.

It doesn't look like a "sessionstore.jsonlz4 " was created, and when I try to see previous versions of literally anything in "(c:) > users > [my info] > app data > roaming > Mozilla > Firefox > Profiles" ALL are without one despite the folder properties showing a "created" date that fits with when I created a firefox account two -ish years ago.

Every folder in the second profile (which shows that it was created today) is empty.

Has anyone else heard of an update overwriting all history like this? I had a, frankly, problematic number of tabs open (across three windows, each with a different general theme, ie general stuff in window a, weird hobby in window b, and A Lot of tabs for a personal project that I mostly didn't have bookmarked in window C), and have never had anything remotely like this happen before.

Is this a hopeless cause? What can I do to prevent this from happening again?????

Any advice would be appreciated. The tabs lost in my "personal project research" window represent about six months of weekends worth of effort and I'm so upset about it that I can barely articulate how stupid I feel for having passively allowed this to happen because I was tired last night when I got home from work and ignored the "update" prompt in the top right corner (normally I make sure to save my session and update, but I thought "eh, I'll do it tomorrow when I get home from work").
