My power died recently, after which I opened Firefox, expecting to be greeted with the about:sessionrestore page but it was just a blank white page for some reason. The tab name still had "about:sessionrestore" but it was just blank, no window to select and restore. I backed up the sessionstore-backups folder and found the session I need to restore (recovery.jsonlz4). I dunno why, when I uncompressed that file, it saved that broken session as well. So the file looks like {Session with broken about:sessionrestore page -> Broken about:sessionrestore tab -> Session I want -> Tabs I want}

Is there any way to manually restore this nested session? I attached some images to help clarify. I don't really know how to work with json files, I'm using a freeware viewer to read the uncompressed session file. Thanks for any help.

I remember being able to fix this before, but I can't find the config category for it now. Basically, no matter what is already open in other tabs, I always want Firefox to follow my directions and open whatever website I type in the URL in my current tab. I don't care if, say, Twitter is already open in an earlier tab. If I type in twitter.com, I want it to open in that tab, not switch to the previous tab. For example, there may be some sites that update regularly, but I want to hang onto the older version for a bit, so I leave it open. But then if I want to see the newer updated page, Firefox will not allow me to do it. What do I have to search for to switch to True or False to change this?

Hi, I'm trying to find a way to disable Firefox from automatically switching to new tabs when I click "open to a new tab" (I do a lot of research so I like to open a bunch of links in a row, and constantly having to switch back is annoying lol) but I've been browsing all the advice/tutorials (most seem to be from 2018) but I seem to be missing some of the options? Specifically the option for this preference in the tab settings. Have they been removed or just moved? or is there something more I need to do to find them?

I'm also looking for the option that lets you toggle firefox warning you about closing multiple tabs

(the image with the fb container add on is my setting, the other is from a support site/tutorial)

my windows 10 20h2 computer crashed 8/29/2021. Firefox was up to date. I built a new computer. I have access to the files off the old hard drive. I have 5 Firefox windows open with over 100 tabs of items I am researching How to I get all the tabs and windows to open in chrome on the new computer? I copied the entire profile directory of files into the new profile folder on the new pc and it still opened only the 1 standard home tab. Since Firefox did not shut down properly I expected the restore pages prompt to come up. Current version of Firefox is 93.0 (64-bit)

Hiya I want to be warned when quitting multiple tabs BUT I do not want the session restored when opening again. This used to be possible but now in Settings if I untick Restore previous session even though Warn you when quitting the browser is ticked it does not give a warning when I quit Firefox. So this means if its unticked then if I accidently hit the close button I loose all the open tabs in firefox. If ticked I have to close all the tabs manually each time I close firefox to prevent thm opening when I start Firefox again. Im on Windows 10 Pro 21H1 with Firefox 93.0 any idea if I can change this behaviour in the advanced prefs? (about:config) thanks for any insights A

Hello. I've just recently refreshed Firefox. Before I did that, I had a home icon next to the round refresh icon on the upper left of the menu. Now I don't have it. And I can' click to the home icon to get a new home page of Firefox! And I am NOT a happy camper. Did you all forget to put that on there or what?

Yes, I am fully aware that I can click the plus sign to get a new page. But I love the home page icon. Is it coming back by any chance?

Recently after the last update I lost all the tabs and also the possibility to recover them through "restore recently closed windows", as it wasn't clickable anymore all of a sudden. Moving files in the firefox profile folder isn't making any difference, perhaps I'm not doing it correctly. Anyway I only have files from the day in which I lost everything, so nothing from days earlier as it seems. Please help, the tabs vanished all by themselves, I didn't have a role in it, though I absolutely need to get them back

If I assign a certain site to a container and close and reopen Firefox, the site still loads but is not assigned to the container anymore. It only does when I set a site to always open in a specific container. Is it supposed work like this, or can I change this somehow? It is fairly inconvinient if I have to reassign every site to the right container every time I start Firefox. Thanks in advance.

I set "Open links in tabs instead of new windows" and it opens the bookmark link in a new tab in W10. It opens the bookmark link in the current tab in W11. Both are v93.

My preference would be the W10 way.

Not sure why this would be an OS related issue but there we are.

In the current version of Firefox, if (which is very rare) I go and open more than 17 tabs, some go off the one end of the top of the screen, and I must scroll over to find them. If I remember, on a very old version it was either 15 or 11 tabs before that happened.

Is there a way for me to change the 'limit number of tabs before they go off the end'? I would rather like to do that, but I have not found how. I would be most grateful if you can help.

Thanks,

System: MSI B640 Tomahawk. I5 10600KU 32GB RAM

Video: MSI 3070 X3

System Drive: 250GB fast Samsung SSD, with 50% free.

System OS: W10Pro_x64 21H1, Defender, no Firewall, no extra AV. Firefox_93.0_x64

Network: TYPE: Dedicated FIBER LAN Provider: Telenet Account Type: FIBER_200 Plus +


Addons: Adblock + µblock FBPurity Block Sender New Tab Override Cookie Manager and Cookie quick Manager Auto-High-Quality for youtube Ant Downloader Video Downloadhelper Cute Save Button WebP Image Converter Translate Web Page

Additional Information: Open Pinned Tabs: In between 25 and 60, depending on my current activities.

Tried: Disabling each add-on until all were off. Safe Start. Nothing helps.

Understandings: 1) No browser is made to run up to 60 open tabs (possibly even more)!!! 2) I run a "plethora" (compared to most users) if add-ons; these also bring the use speed down. 3) Resource used: 2GB (with "mere 30 pages" open.

BUT: DESPITE that: I ALSO understand that, considering my system and Network Type, it should not even be problematic with 200 pages open at once. 2GB over 32GB of RAM? Not the slightest issue (and it often runs at 4GB RAM in use). My CPU never runs half high, even when I have like 60 pages open: Should not be an issue then either. My Video Card has plenty resource over as well when at highest for me usage." Again, it should be no issue. My Fiber Netware? Telenet BVBA, Mechelen Test results: Ping: 5ms Jitter: 2ms Download: 904.2 Mbps Upload: 038.3 Mbps Not the best, not the worst, but for simple browsing, more than, I would assume, plenty.

So, what gives, what is the issue? No extreme strain on the system, no background high-resource issues, sure: one or two add-ons in Firefox but these as well do not strain my system, no AV issues, no Firewall issues (I turned that off, I fail to get the need for one as a house-dog-tree user), yet slow performance. Also, while 30'ish tabs running, 2GB used of RAM? My my, what the hell do they do as Site Admins to have these amounts (and NO, I do not do porn, thank you.  :P I am well aware of other people having insane issues surfing porn, as I helped many of these folks)? Sure, Deviant is a larger one that is open, being a graphical site, but like Quora, FB, Hot- and G-Mail and similar, these ain't, so to get a 2GB usage is weird, I would assume. I said, assume: yes, I am not specifically an internet know-all, I know of networking as a former NOVEL Netware Supervisor under UNIX (also Spupervisor), but Networking in a company is not the same as internet.

So, what is going on, why is my browser so slow? Having turned of all and 1 page open it's lightning fast, but now ... So, it is the open tabs, and the add-ons, though when turned off, I see no real difference. Brings it to tabs. How come, it is this "heavy", even for my system, please?

Thank you. Xog.
