I sometimes invoke firefox on Linux by running the command

`firefox --new-tab` (with no argument to the new tab flag, I have this hooked to a keyboard shortcut).

This has always worked fine (opens a new instance of firefox if none is running; opens a new tab in the open window if there is one). Today I upgraded to Firefox 79.0, and unfortunately it seems that now running the above command opens a new window even if I already have one open. I guess this is a regression?

When I start Firefox only the focused page is loaded. All other pages are blank as I set 'Clear history when Firefox closes' to 'automatically clear' the cache on exit. If I click on another tab it refreshs it. How do I to get every page to load on startup? Firefox treats pinned and normal tabs differently. On restart I have to 'Select all Tabs', then 'Reload page' every time. It used to load all pages automatically but now it doesn't. | Is there an extension? Or an About:Config entry I can change or insert? Private browsing is not used. Pages are open in tabs not windows. I have 20+ tabs open all the time. About half are pinned. Side Note - I would be happy to see the "Reload All Tabs" menu option reinstated.

The firefox menus and messages suddenly started to appear in Arabic (see image1). I followed the instructions on the Help section and checked the language definition there (menu/ Options/ general/Language). The only language defined there is English! No arabic anywhere, not even as an alternative (see image2). Pressing OK and restarting Firefox didn;t help either.


How do I get rid of the Arabic and return to English menus?

Thanks!

One website, Discord, has a broken Favicon in the tab. A photo is attached. I read another support thread that said to clear the favicon files from the user profile by opening the Directory from About:Profiles. I did this. It did not fix the issue. What is more strange is that the home page for Discord doesn't have this problem. It's only when I log in and go to the list of channels available that this happens.

But, I think whatever bug I'm experiencing is not solely a favicon bug, because I also have a weird graphical issue when visiting this website: https://james.darpinian.com/satellites/ One icon should say "You" and any traveling satellites should be labeled with the satellite's name. I've tried clearing any browser cache/data related to that website and it's not fixed. I've attached a screenshot from Microsoft Edge on the same computer showing how it's meant to look.

Just now, I went to the about:profiles and opened the hidden "default profile" in a new window. Going to the Discord website or the satellite does NOT reproduce these graphical errors. How can I sort of "clean up" my primary profile to fix these things?

I use Firefox 79. I have removed all the extensions except my antivirus (Avast Ultimate) which includes a VPN but the VPN is currently turned off. I have Firefox 79 installed on two computers, one of which connects by CPL ("powerline adapters/homeplugs") and the other connects to the router by an ethernet cable. My Firefox settings are identical on both machines and I have no Captcha problems with the one using the ethernet cable. I also completely turned off my home network and reset it - fibre optic box, router, both computers, and unplugged the CPLs - and then restarted them from the optic box forwards one by one. It made no difference, the CPL problem still exists.

I sought help on the Microsoft Community Forum and sent the two blokes I was working with all the above info and they concluded that the problem wasn't with the CPLs which, incidentally are TP-LINK, model TL-PA7010P(KitFR) with the Version 3 software. All three lights on each of the CPLs are solid green. I have also informed TP-Link France of the problem and I'm waiting for their reply. Following advice from one of the blokes on the MS Forum, I ran a Speedtest.net on the CPL machine and the results were: downloading 91.99Mbps and uploading 87.47Mpbs and the Ping response was 20. (This is all nonsense to me but may help you.) Both people on the MS Forum concluded that the problem does not lie with the CPL.

I'm going to replace the CPLs with a 30m ethernet cable (less aesthetically pleasing and more encumbering) to see if that resolves the issue.

I use the the bookmarks toolbar extensively, I have nested folders in the toolbar. Recently one of my folders disappeared, I blame my wife but it could have been me... I am hoping it got dragged to another folder but have not been able to find it yet. I used the "show all bookmarks" page and searched and found one of the links in the missing folder but I am unable to tell where the bookmark is stored in my hierarchical organization. Can anybody give me some pointers on finding my missing folder?

Thanks!

It sounds like peak laziness, but I'm not a fan of opening a menu every time I want to change search engine nor do I want to use a prefix (though I suppose I wouldn't mind 'g' instead of '@google', 'ddg' instead of '@duckduckgo').

I'd like to have more than one search bar akin to the one you can choose adjacent to the address bar--each with its own search engine. If such a tweak doesn't exist browser-side or even addons-side, I suppose I wouldn't mind dabbling with the code if someone can tell me what file I'd have to go to in order to do this.

I regularly bounce between Google, Bing, and Duckduckgo as the search results vary with each (and, imo, Google has been less reliable as time goes by). Such a tweak would make browsing a lot more convenient for me.

Hello,

Something was altered with the Firefox browser. My default page shows a Google Search bar. When I type something in the bar to do a search and hitting enter then brings up https://search.yahoo.com with my search. I didn't intentionally change anything within Firefox and if I go to the "Options" page under my Firefox page, it shows that my default search engine is Google.

How do I fix my searches to use Google and not use Yahoo?

If I use a different browser like Chrome, or Microsoft Edge, they both use Google search correctly.

This problem just started yesterday August 13, 2020.

Hello!

When I add a bookmark, I often find myself in the situation that I would like to adjust the URL. Alas, this cannot be done in the pop-up dialog that appears when clicking on the star button in the address bar.

Then again, it's quite tedious to find that bookmark in the bookmarks library to edit the URL there.

Am I missing something here or is this a missing feature?
