Is there no way to save tabs each time I now close my browser? I don't want to bookmark them as almost all are not to be saved. I used to close my browser and be able to reopen the save tabs when I started my browser the next time, now I can't, it's totally crippled my abilities online and what I am using my browser for and leaving me lost now.

Hi,

Google Chrome have just dropped an update featuring Tab groups. Holy smokes it is good.

As somebody who frequently has over a thousand tabs open, this is such an awesome feature. Any chance of Firefox getting it?

PS Love Firefox, great browser!

My browser opens new links in new tabs. I want them to open new links in the same tab.

Others inquire about the same issue get a response saying:;

"Did you try it? Some sites add a target="_blank" attribute to links. Links with these attributes are supposed to open in a new window when left clicked. However, Firefox by default opens these links in a new tab in the current window. By setting browser.link.open_newwindow to 1, these links will instead open in the current tab/window."

I need step-by-step help understanding what I need to do to set the browser are suggested in the above response.

I searched this forum but couldn't find an answer. I have "restore last session" turned on, but I'd like Firefox wouldn't reopen my last visited site after I close the browser by closing the last tab. In other words: if I close the browser by a regular means (by clicking the rightmost upper X, or by right-clicking the taskbar and choosing close window) it goes to the last viewed site when I reopen the browser – and that's ok – but when I close the last tab and the browser closes, I don't want to see this site again when I reopen Firefox. Is there a way to achieve this? By the way, this is the standard behavior in Google Chrome.

I had so many problems with it, I went through downloading different "session save" add-ons, I know what solution you guys will give me, I've done most of the posts' instructions, this is more of a complaint post.

When Windows boots up and you had Firefox open before you shut down last time, it will open anew, automatically, with your previous session, but it's on the end of the list of things that launch on startup.

Forgetting you had it on and clicking the browser again, will open a new session with the home screen instead of the previous session, then when actual session Firefox launches it's a 50/50 whether it will be in home screen as well, or actually in your previous session. Now here is the fun part. If you close the new window with just the home tab, that will now become the latest session, so your previous one will be deleted.

How to get around that? Move your home tab into your session instead of closing the window, it works 100% of the time... But can we, not start a new session if you close the home screen, or if you close just 1 tab it doesn't count as a different session. I dunno, just throwing ideas out there.

Hope this reaches those with the same issue, or people in positions to fix the issue, if anyone wants to use session saving add-ons, I took fancy to Tab Session Manager and Easy Session Manager, though not perfect, I don't advise for over 150 tabs.

I'll try to be as active on this thread as I can be, thanks for reading through! :>

Firefox was acting normally keeping my open tabs when I open the browser this morning. I don't know what happened. I left the computer for a couple hours this afternoon. I opened Windows and found a "new desktop" which I didn't want. I clicked on it and it took me back to my normal desktop. I had left Firefox minimized. Maybe this is what has removed my settings in Firefox. Now when I open Firefox, my saved tabs are gone. I've tried twice putting them back in. I check Options to make sure that restore session is checked. Each time I close, I get a single tab and have to re-open all of my favorite pages all over again. My Windows 10 version is 20H2.

What can I do in options that will allow my open tabs to stay saved?

Please reply.

Hello folks,

How about if you remove that extra step to choose the option of closing other tabs. At the moment we have to right click on the tab, choose "Close Multiple Tabs" and then choose the actual option. Because this option is used quite a lot, I think it would be better to see that option as soon as we right click.

Thanks, Marco

If I click on that button where it says "Open Network Login Page," I get another screen where that button is gone, and it says "You must log in to this network before you can access the internet."

Here is the URL: https://detectprotal.firefox.com/success.txt

Both of these pages has a question mark in a circle, but this is not clickable.

When i switch on my computer i have to make sure that i open Firefox and restore the previous session before i do anything else.

For example, if you click on a link in an email - and if Firefox is not open - then it will open Firefox and you have lost access to your previous session tabs.

Yesterday, when i switched on the computer Adobe wanted to remove a program - so i uninstalled the program and then it opened a page in Firefox so i lost 50 tabs. Sigh.

SUGGESTION As well as having the option to restore the previous session could we please have the option to restore the session before that? I think this will make a lot of people very happy.

Recently there was a change in the way bookmarks are displayed. If I go into Manage Bookmarks they are sorted in the order I want them to be shown, but the bookmarks offered to me appear to be random, or possibly most recently used. That is totally useless when I want to find a particular bookmark.

How do I get Firefox to display bookmarks in the order I have them in the Manage Bookmarks tab? Alternately is there a way I can get the manage bookmarks window to show up as a column on the left or right of my desktop? That would allow me to easily find a bookmark, and also to add a bookmark in the correct location to assist me in finding it later.

There is a little robot in my search bar, that makes my search bar orange with a lighter orange stripe pattern. When I hover my mouse over the robot it says "this browser is under remote control". I have googled and looked everywhere for more information about this, as I am completely unaware on what it is. Could someone tell me what it is and what it does? I really just want to make sure it isn't a virus, and that I don't need to keep covering my camera anymore.

Thank you so much.
