I used to be that if you clicked a link and "Opened in a New Tab" that this child tab would appear to the right of all existing tabs.

In the later versions of FF, these child tabs are inserted directly after the parent tab that created them.

This may make logic sense to some people but, maybe because I'm dyslexic, position is critical and all my existing tabs beyond this child have just been moved up one place, which I find very confusing.

I often Open a New Tab for temporary tangents, so I don't lose my place in an existing page, but this means that my primary tabs are tromboning right and left as I open/close.

Is there a parameter that I can change in Config to set the behaviour back to adding new tabs to the end of the list?

Recently I've been experiencing a weird bug when hovering over tabs (see attached screenshot). This started not too long ago, maybe a month or so. It happens randomly and disappears if I relaunch Firefox. Initially I thought that this only occurred when my computer is connected to an external display, I'm using an old MacBook Pro with an integrated Intel graphics chip. So I figured maybe it was struggling with the resolution of my external monitor. But now it happened without it being connected to the monitor. Has someone experienced this?

Problem began with not being able to open a new tab. I updated to FF 78.0.2.

Now I still cannot open a new tab and my tabs are superimposed on my bookmark folders. Clicking on that menu bar opens a folder, not a tab. FF is unusable.

Also, the three coloured buttons, appear down on the webpage rather than in the menu bar. In order to get them out of there, I have to create a title bar that holds only them and the title of the page I'm on which seems a waste of space. Can I get them on the bar next to the search box?

Image attached.

Thanks for any help. Greatly appreciated.

I had like over 100 tabs lol but I had a Windows Update. My laptop froze while I had Firefox open. After the laptop restarted, I realized the new patches didn't get applied before Windows started up again, so after Windows started back up, (I did not open Firefox at all during this cycle) I went to Windows Update and hit Restart to apply the updates. After the updates got patched in and Windows restarted, I went to open Firefox and it just opens the home page.

I do have Restore Previous Session upon Startup checkmarked.

Tried restoring from the 3 line Menu button but the Restore option is not there.

Did try under History in the Menu bar but my Recently Closed Windows and Recently Closed Tabs are greyed out.

Tried the Library icon's Recently Closed Windows and Recently Closed Tabs within History and they both show up as (Empty)

Went to my Profile's folder into the sessionstore-backups folder and there's only 2 small 44kb files there both that were created when I started Firefox up: recovery.baklz4 and recovery.jsonlz4 ... the sessionstore-backups folder itself was also created when I started up Firefox after my Windows Update.

I read thru stuff like https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1204253 I do not have any files that have previous.jsonlz4 or upgrade.jsonlz4 like mentioned in my sessionstore-backups folder... not sure if they may be somewhere else like in 1 of the Temp folders somewhere else in Windows folder.

If I uninstall last Windows Updates, would it revert my Firefox Profiles folder to what it previous was or does Uninstalling last Windows Updates have no effect on the Firefox folder?

When Firefox has been running for some time it becomes very unresponsive. This is a very well known and very longstanding problem. The only solution is to simply restart Firefox. Unfortunately, if one has multiple tabs open, restarting Firefox will not reload those opened tabs. This is a gigantic PITA as this user usually has more than ten tabs open, many with various and sundry search results. Which I then have to laboriously open new tabs for and re-enter all the different search terms.

Is there any way to restart Firefox WITH those tabs ?!?!??!?!

After more than ten very satisfactory years of Firefox use do I really have to switch to another browser that doesn't require constant restarts and pray that I can find equivalent privacy and ad-blocking extensions ?

How to set Firefox to open new tabs on the left, not on the right of the tab list?

Hyperlink is ok, it opens on the right of the current tab, but not the Ctrl+T or when opening link from the pinned tab. Tab is placed to the far right. Current setup is not logical. If pinned tabs (important ones which you visit often) are on the beginning, and the tabs you are actively working on are on the opposite end of the tab bar. You want to open new tabs near the pinned ones.

I'm having a weird problem with Firefox for a long time now.

I'm using the latest version, for windows, x64bits - 81.0.2

Sometimes, I press Ctrl+T to open a new TAB and I type an address or paste an address and it just won't load the page... It stays loading, loading and it does nothing.. BUT If I open another tab (Ctrl+T or in the plus sign) and paste or type and address, everything works... This can happen again on the same window or in another window... I just don't know what is happening... I haven't switch to another browser because I love Firefox to much, but I'm getting a bit tired of this problem...

Any hints on why this is happening ?

I had the "Restore previous session" checked at the Startup, so every time I closed and reopened Firefox my previous tabs used to appear. However, this last time I closed Firefox, when I reopened I saw Firefox is installing update message (81.0.2), then none of the previous tabs came back.

Startup still has the same 'restore previuos session' checked.

"Recently closed tabs" is grayed out.

How do I get my tabs back?

I've been having some issues with firefox trying to restore tabs from previous sessions. I've already turned off the option in the settings menu and it doesn't normally do it but occasionally my pc will crash when I have 4-5 tabs open (though that's because I got a bit of a potato laptop because of not reading the fine print but that's neither here nor there) and when this happens and I go to reopen firefox it will try to open those few tabs at once which creates a cycle of my computer freezing up. I tried looking at a couple of firefox help articles and have been directed to this page (https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/restore-previous-session) but I can't find the info relevant to my problem.
