Hi, I am using FF v80.0.1 on ubuntu 18.04.

I noticed that whenever a tab is loading there is now a static (non-spinning) icon. Previously it was spinning. I want it to spin.

In changelog for 80.0 it says:

> For users with reduced motion settings, we’ve reduced a number of animations such as tab loading to reduce motion for users with migraines and epilepsy.

Is there a way to disable this feature?

This refers to Firefox version 80.01.1 (64 bit), on a Windows 10 platform, OS build 19041.450.

I tend to open pdf files in a new tab.

Later if I choose to download that file, I will paste the URL in the file as record.

Now with this version of Firefox, the URL is not shown with the pdf file, but rather a local drive temporary location! (e.g. file:///C:/Users/User/AppData/Local/Temp/recycling-02-00003.pdf)

This does not happen all the time, but at some sites, e.g. https://www.google.com/url?sa=t&rct=j&q=&esrc=s&source=web&cd=&ved=2ahUKEwjWlPex8trrAhUh6XMBHf5bAbQQFjACegQIAxAB&url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.mdpi.com%2F2313-4321%2F2%2F1%2F3%2Fpdf&usg=AOvVaw3fTZswGqS5KjqCNjFbe2HE

How can I force Firefox to stop doing this? Thanks!

Hi,

I synced my tabs from my old laptop to my android device. All the tabs were there in the "synced tabs" folder. I did not open the tabs in my phone thinking they are all safe there (I didn't know about the 7 day sync period, although I restored well within that period).

When the laptop got repaired, I tried to sync back the tabs from the android device. But as soon as sync was done, within few minutes, the synced tabs were gone from both the phone as well as the newly repaired laptop..!! Apparently the sync was again done and overwrite/erased the saved tabs in my android phone. This happened since I did not open any of the tabs in my android device. All of the saved tabs were gone.

I feel, this feature of saving open tabs is a myth. There should be some feature to restore the synced tabs from an older date. Just like a restore point in windows work.

Due to this 'myth', i lost a lot of work that was done over many months.

Before rolling out a feature, thorough testing should have been done. Loopholes like these should have been taken into consideration and patched.

Thanks Aj

I would like to restore the warning of closing multiple tabs before closing. I am on Firefox 80.0.1. There is not box under Menu > Options > General tab of "Warn me when closing multiple tabs". When going into about:config and searching browser.tabs.warnonclose the value is true.

I'm not sure where else to look to restore this option.

Can anyone Help? Thanks

PayPal pops up a window, which I want to dock as a tab in the main Firefox window.

How do I do that? The "natural" way was to grab the popped-up window and drag it onto the hamburger menu. A quick search only revealed a preference setting to force pop-ups to be tabs, but that is before-the-fact, whereas I would like an after-the-fact solution.

Thanks in advance.

A lot of times, I'll have a lot of tabs open while working on a project. This takes up a lot of memory, and when I need to switch what I'm working on, I'd rather not keep the window open to improve performance. However, I'd like to easily reopen the tabs that I had before. I know there is a "previously closed windows" feature, but that only seems to save them for a while and is unreliable; additionally, I don't want to dig through my history to find the sites I was on before. Is there any way to do this?

Relatively minor problem, but: lately, if I enter text too quickly after opening a new tab, the text that I entered into the search bar gets deleted. Maybe half a second or so after opening the tab, this stops and the text enters normally. But, this is frustrating for navigating or searching from new tabs.

Any way to fix this? I am using Firefox 80.0.1 on a Mac. I am also using the Tabliss extension, if that matters.

The main focus of my issue is that Firefox's sudden new behaviour of it opening normally when it launches, with my previous tabs remembered as I set is immediately followed by the browser quickly re-launching within seconds. While this isn't a big concern when I open Firefox from its shortcut, it's become a serious issue when I launch Firefox from an external URL, like from an email, or when viewing an original picture posted in a Discord chat channel.

When the relaunch happens, it's always without the tab that caused Firefox to launch automatically on clicking said external URL. I realize that I need to do an addon check, but that's a long process, so I was rather hoping this was a known issue that someone knows the solution to, or what addon is involved and how.

Hi, I re uploaded FireFox and when I used to open a new tab, it used to show all the previous sites I had been on like Yahoo, Amazon, Ebay and such. Even though I checked the Top Sites (4 rows) to show up when I click on a new tab..the 4 rows of sites I have viewed are not showing up yet..

So, how I do fix this and or when will I be able to see the 4 rows of sites I have just viewed?

Thank you.
