Formerly, one could reorder tabs in a Firefox browser window by clicking and dragging. One could also click and hold a tab and move it to create a new window or take a tab from one window, click and drag it to another window. I am no longer able to do this on my Mac laptop, after updating to Firefox 71. I can't seem to find a special setting in Firefox 71. Is there one or a way to allow tab movement? Or do I need to revert to the previous version of Firefox?

As long as Firefox has added the containers feature in the last updates, the actual behavior of the new tab button needs to be updated, or at least configurable. If you're in a specific container, new tab opens a no-container tab. I believe this should be the actual container of the active tab, instead of a no-container.

I'm using firefox developer edition. The latest version: 76.0b2 I have firefox.cfg set up to overwrite new tab content with locally stored html. The code in firefox.cfg that worked until recent update:

/* set new tab page */ try {

 var newTabURL = "file:///G:/Documents/Newtab.html";
 aboutNewTabService = Cc["@mozilla.org/browser/aboutnewtab-service;1"].getService(Ci.nsIAboutNewTabService);
 aboutNewTabService.newTabURL = newTabURL;

} catch(e){Cu.reportError(e);} // report errors in the Browser Console

In the browser console there is an error message displayed:

[Exception... "Cannot modify properties of a WrappedNative" nsresult: "0x80570034 (NS_ERROR_XPC_CANT_MODIFY_PROP_ON_WN)" location: "JS frame :: firefox.cfg :: <TOP_LEVEL> :: line 7" data: no]

Any idea what that error message means and how to resolve it? Does anything changed regarding new tab overwrite?

Used to be able to move a tab into a different window by dragging it there. No longer works (Win 7, FF75 and now 76) despite your help article that says to do just this--so how can I do this? I'm trying to consolidate a bunch of tabs currently in their own windows, into just one window which will hold all the tabs on a related subject.

Hello!

I have firefox 74 (64-bit), after one of the bluescreens that sometimes happen for my laptop, my Firefox tabs became very, very transparent.

This is it how it looked before: https://puu.sh/Fnzh1/b606c91b73.jpg

This is how it looks now: https://puu.sh/FLYyk/63fb3fab0e.jpg

As you can see, in both cases I have 3 tabs opened and some other firefox window below. However, opacity is very high in the first case and you almost don't see anything else aside of the 3 tabs opened, while in the current situation is like non-existent and if not the difference in the size of the tabs, you wouldn't even notice that these tabs are not from the current window, but from some other window below!

Can someone help me understand how it happened and, more importantly, how to fix this problem? I tried searching options for things like 'transparency', 'transparent', 'opacity', etc., but couldn't find anything :-(

Just wondering if anyone else is having the same issues, every so often, when I open a new tab and enter a website name and hit enter the tab closes and returns me to the main tab that I had open. It never happens twice in a row and is often unpredictable when it happens. Unsure if it is a bug or just some setting that might be causing it? I am using an up-to-date browser in a windows 10 environment. Thanks for any comments or suggestions.

After needing to do heavy maintenance due to a malware/malvertising issue that cropped up, I needed to restart and refresh Firefox a couple of times. While all the tabs are still present, they are now "discarded". I am fully unable to restore them, currently. Googling has not given me any real insight as to what is going on.

I did have Tab Suspender extension/app in use, so perhaps I should have disabled that and refreshed all the tabs. Impossible to say now, and hindsight is not exactly helping me restore any of this.

I have a lot of tabs, and I have managed to copy the titles of each tab, so I should theoretically be able to find each one again. However, if there is an easier method to restore all my tabs, I'd prefer that.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Hello Community,

I always used Firefox as PDF-Viewer and it worked fine. But since the last update it is not possible to view PDF-files anymore: whenever I click on a PDF or a link to a PDF - Firefox creates new tabs endlessly. When I quit Firefox and restart it I have lots of new and empty tabs in the browser, but no PDF. It's very annoying because I have to close them all manually and can't view PDFs anymore.

I have not installed any new software, no registry hacks, have changed nothing in the browsers config, so I suppose it has something to do with the update to 76.0.1

Any ideas? Thanks in advance.

Imagine the following scenario: 1. I go to a search engine and look for "dogs". 2. From the result page I click on a link to a dog page. 3. I close the browser. 4. I open the browser again later. 5. The tab that is supposed to be the restored dog page is the dog result page of the search engine instead.

It seems like firefox sometimes isn't saving the actually last page but instead some of the previous ones.

I am using Firefox 76.0.1 with addons uMatrix, uBlock, OneTab

Thanks for the help, cheers

Firefox 76.0 64 Bit for Linux Mint 1.0 Mint 19 Cinnamon3.8.9

How can I prevent a single tab from closing?

I would like to prevent the keystroke Ctrl W from closing the active tab.

My understanding is that it is impossible to change keybindings in Firefox.

I thought an alternative might be to set Firefox to warn before closing a tab.

I had no luck in finding such an option.

Is there such an option?

If not, any other ideas?
