I don't know when this started, probably a few versions ago, but it is driving me mad! And before you ask, I already checked about:config and both warning options are true. After searching a bit, I have found that the cause of this may be that I also have "Show my windows and tabs from last time" selected. Are these two options really incompatible, or is this just a common bug? If they are, is this by design? I close Firefox on accident all the time because Windows does not always automatically set the most recent or top-most window as active, and it is very annoying to have to wait for xmarks to sync when I don't even want to close FF in the first place. If there is currently no way to have firefox warn before closing and restore your tabs, are there any easy work arounds or addons that solve this? Sorry about all the questions but this is so frustrating.

Using FF 29.0 or 29.0.1, session storage seem badly broken.

All commands for restoring previous sessions are disabled (whether or not they are from an extension), and even when the browser gets restarted (for example when an extension is installed or updated) all the sessions get lost: I click Restart in the extensions tab with 10 different tabs opened, and the restarted Firefox window contains NOTHING but the default startup page (on which, by the way, the search box doesn't work at all).

Before someone asks, I've already tried all the standard suggestions:

1) Tried with a new empty profile with NO extension at all 2) Tried deleting ALL profile info, uninstalling FF, then reinstalling and using the default empty profile with NO extensions whatsoever

And the problem is still there: session storage does not function (sessionstore.js doesn't get created).

The only thing that solved the problem was reverting back to FF 28, which I have done.

(By the way, this bug led me to discover another thing which I consider a total ergonomic failure: in FF28 the "check for updates" button in the about dialog MUST be called in another way: this button DOES NOT check for updates, it INSTALLS updates! In fact, if clicked, it does not check and tell me if a new version is available: if the new version is available, having clicked "check" is interpreted as "Download and immediately install the update", and NOTHING can be done to stop this when clicked; even closing FF results in the updated version being installed as soon as downloaded, and the only way to get back to the previous version is to download the specific installed from mozilla and reinstall it! This is NOT a version check, this is a forced update a la M$!)

Any other suggestion form the experts?

I have several windows open, and some of them have multiple tab groups. Is there an easy way to move these tab groups between the windows? I saw the workaround of making bookmarks of all the tabs in one group, move to the target window and open the bookmarks there.

Not even an exaggeration. It's only 9 pm and I've already submitted over 80 crashes for today alone.

For Hardware Acceleration, I've tried to disable and enable and disable it again with no change. I tried to read around and turned on "Prevent accessibility services from accessing your browser" as well, hearing that some people have tried that with results. I do not have an actively scanning antivirus running, nor firewall. I had this issue before the upgrade to Quantum. I did a completely clean upgrade in hopes of fixing it, and I'm still having issues. Daily. It's been ongoing for several months at this point.

New tabs are preserved but existing tabs are not opening the URL they were last closed at.

For example, If I am on page 1 of a forum/comic on a tab and I move to page 3 and then close the browser. When I open it is at page 1 again. If I then press next to page 7 as the forum/comic has moved on, read the latest and then maybe close the browser a day later, on re-opening it will open to either 1 or 3.

This is across 3 firefox installations, ON 3 PCs.

I just noticed that Open Tabs were set to sync but I actually have no tab crossover between the browsers and they don't restore unless you choose to being them over so each browser with a particular tab open should update that one on re-open, not take it from an instance that does not have that tab open.

Anyway, it is really starting to pee me of as when I re-open my home instance it is not opening Cyanide and Happiness about 30-40 commics behind the last one read.

It all worked perfectly before Quantum and none of my settings have changed.

Cheers,

Rob.

I have an android phone running android 9 (Pie) and I had over 100 tabs on it open (mostly news articles and stuff). It is signed into my Firefox account. I realized that's a lot of tabs and the past 2 days I've been actually sorting them and closing some of them. I realized I could do this on my desktop as well. Anyways my phone froze while I had Firefox open, and I realized my tabs on there were all missing... I decided not to panic yet because I could still get to them on my desktop. Turns out when I open the "synced tabs" pane on my desktop which is logged into the same firefox account.. none of the 100+ tabs are there anymore either. How do I actually contact someone that can revert my sync status or whatever to a previous state so I can get my tabs and stuff back that I had open? Firefox crashing on my phone SHOULD NOT EVER somehow close all of those tabs on BOTH the phone and the computer. I guess the crash of firefox somehow wiped them out, and then my desktop synced with that account, realized those tabs were "closed" and cleared the list there as well.

First, I just had a major system crash, had to re-install Linux Mint and through my own stupidity, relied on the wrong backups for my firefox configuration. So I lost my Firefox 52 install with all of my extensions (that still worked). Now, I'm running v. 57 Quantum, and a few things aren't working correctly.

First, the MAJOR problem: when I open a link from a bookmark, it's clobbering an existing tab that I was using (that's why it was open, obviously). That is completely unsat and can not be allowed to continue. How do I correct this? I can't find the option under settings-->tabs to fix this problem.

Second issue (major annoyance): I can no longer create a bookmark directly in a bookmark folder on the bookmark toolbar. I used to be able to open that bookmark folder, and the first option was to bookmark the currently open tab. That option has vanished, and i use that all the time. How do I restore that?

Actually, one more issue: I have two tabs that are pinned and are supposed to be protected (i.e., nothing can clobber them, and I can't close them without deliberately turning the protection off (context menu right-clicking on tab). I need that back, because for some reason, firefox thinks it's ok to open a bookmark in those tabs, too, when it most definitely is NOT ok.

Sometimes, if Firefox has crashed, it asks if you want to recover your previous tabs, but only if it crashed! I would like an option to force that same recovery when you open Firefox and all your previous tabs are gone and replaced by one stupid tab you really didn't even want in the first place and not have to find every previous tab one at a time. If there was a recent history of sessions or at least the previous 2 sessions we could recover all the lost tabs from that first session! This has happened many, many times to me and if very frustrating to loose all my open tabs and have to start opening all my old tabs that i use all the time!
