I generally have loads of tabs open, and until recently this wasn’t an issue (perhaps until last upgrade?), but now, I can hardly move between tabs, the drop down list showing tab selection doesn’t work, nor does the left/right arrows. When I delete a tab, it leaves a ‘space’ where the tab was, only ‘back filling’ after I’ve opened up another tab to full screen mode and then minimised it again, at which point it goes to the very left-most tab and the only way I can get to tabs further down the list, is by deleting them in the manner described. I’ve actually got 2 laptops (Win 7 & 8.1), and it’s now happening on both of them. This might have something to do with memory management/the computer’s page file, but as things stand, I’m SERIOUSLY going to be switching to another browser - despite sticking with Firefox for many-a-year. BTW, I’m actually writing this on my phone, as I couldn’t now do it on either of my laptops (hence I’m currently unable to attach anything/provide screen grabs etc. I guess the only way to ‘clear’ this issue, would be to either close/restart Firefox or my laptop - neither of which I really want to do. Is there a way that I can use an earlier version of the browser and prevent it automatically updating? Yours, a now very frustrated longtime user,

In most standard Windows applications, the title bar and tab colour follows the default Windows settings, e.g. (in my case) the title bar and tab colour of active application windows is blue. This is true even in Thunderbird. Since FF 89, title bar and tabs are something between white and light gray, which is extremely user-un-friendly. FF developer team should return to the previous colour scheme. Yes, I know the circumstances of free software but this is NO excuse to alienate millions of users. Developers that change fully functionable software just, well, just to CHANGE it should consider that they are doing WRONG. Could anyone tell them? I am just user, not developer and I am not willing to learn developer tools like BugZilla just for this simple guiding principle.

Apparently Firefox doesn't realize the importance of Tabs to many of its users. As a Senior, I depend on the separation of the tabs. I see many others complaining about this issue, including those who rely on the separation for business purposes. FireFox chose to answer one user's request by saying they're moving on and basically, the user is just going to have to deal with it.

I love(d) Firefox, but it's time to say good bye. The tabs are a make/break issue for me. I've started the migration back to Microsoft Edge, which does allow tab separators, at least for now.

I hope that Firefox will reconsider at some point and allow us to put separators in just as it does on the Favorites Bar.

Thank you.

Ok I'm a big time safari user and have a pile of pinned tabs 50% were for work and the other 50% were personal. With the latest release of firefox with the security of cross site tracking you offered I moved all of my personal tabs to firefox.

My problem is that when I open firefox the pinned tabs are gone. I've added them 3 times they are pinned therfore I want the to stick around. why does firefox seem to throw them away.

I have very specific urls that I want to keep open and pinned tabs allow me to do this, If firefox can't keep them for me I will have to just go back to safari (no I don't want chrome)

The setting Restore previous session, on settings, general, is marked. History is kept, and the previous tabs are on the history menu (no restore session option is available, however).

Things I tried: Started on safe mode. Deleted startup cache. Refreshed the profile. Turned off add-ons.

So far, nothing works. When I close the browser with tabs open and I open it again, it starts with my homepage only.

Hiya,


I'm having a minor inconvenience with firefox 91.0.2 for a few months now. It's popped up a few months ago and hasn't resolved itself in between updates.

I'm guilty of having many (well over 20) tabs open at the same time and around the 20th or 30th tab even, usually one of the (newly opened) tabs, simply never loads. If I open the same link in another tab, the link (any url) does load. See the screencap below.

This is on a windows 64 bit machine OS build: 19043.1165 (21H1) Windows Feature Experience Pack 120.2212.3530.0

I'm running Norton 360 Antivirus software.

Will try running in safe mode, to see if it still happens and confirm in a reply to this message.

Hoping you guys might have some suggestions.

BTW: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1317506 is probably the same problem, unfortunately the thread has been archived. This one: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1285104 also seems similar.

Three times now I have lost over 150 open tabs on Firefox and have spent hours trying to recover them but to no avail.

I have tried absolutely everything I have read in multiple support posts such as clicking on the 3 lines, trying to go into history, etc. The best I can do is go into my history to see thousands of website that I have been to in the past several months, but seemingly no way to restore only the 150 tabs that I had open.

Several of the posts refer to trying to find previous files with names in them such as "session..." and "json..." etc. but I cannot find any of these files on my hard drive.

MESSAGE TO FIREFOX DEVELOPERS: Please please please add an option to load a previous set of tabs that were open a week or two ago. Not an option to open the websites I was on, but the actual saved tabs. Very frustrating!!!!!! It's not reasonable to expect someone to go through 3,000 web pages in the history to find the 150 that I opened and left opened for a reason. A couple of hundred hours of my time in research down the drain.

Please help. I'm using the latest firefox browser on Windows 7. Thanks.

The tabs are no longer visible anywhere. Every single update makes Firefox worse. Who the hell is doing this? How am I supposed to use this browser? If you want me to switch browsers, just say so. Just pop up a dialog box that says "we do not want people using Firefox, please download another browser."

I was just upgraded to Firefox 91.0. Immediately, pdfs only open in browser tab window after update, no matter what my settings say to use. I have tried "Save File", "Always ask", "Use Windows default app", and my usual choice "Use Adobe Acrobat". Makes no difference. The pdf always opens in a browser tab within Firefox. It was working in 90.0.2, which was the previous installed version before the 91.0 update.

Any suggestions as to how I can fix this?
