When this happens I'm also actually completely unable to close tabs without using ctrl+f4, the close button on tabs no longer works. I also tend to have a lot of tabs open so the close button doesn't show until the tab is selected, but when I try to select the tab and rightclick it to access the close option in the dropdown menu, the option is not present. I'm given a different menu that looks like the one that appears in View>Toolbars.

I haven't been able to reliably reproduce it, but it happens pretty often and with no apparent trigger other than Firefox being open for some amount of time. The number of tabs open doesn't seem to affect it at all.

Help would be appreciated!

Sometimes I open my browser without restoring tabs from the previous session. The problem with this is that I end up closing the browser without restoring the tabs from the previous session, being unable to restore them next time I start the browser. This has happened to me at least at least 5 times this year. Is there anything that I can do to keep tabs from more than one session in case I close the browser without restoring tabs?

I don't like how firefox treats sessions in the new versions. I mean in 3.6 I could easily restore a session, I could pick what pages/windows I don't like to be restored. And most importantly, I could keep more sessions. Example, lets say I have 10 tabs and I terminate firefox, next if I don't restore the tabs, I can keep that restoresession tab, and by following this I can have unlimited restore sessions so I can backup everything I need. So my question is: how can I change back to the old way firefox treated sessions. plus, I liked the 3.6 design better, though I managed to get a look that is very similar to 3.6, I just might go back to 3.6 just because of the restoresession thing.

When opening a new tab, I keep getting 'The Address isn't valid'. Went through all the fixes given in previous threads, changing the url in about:config, running Firefox in safe mode (problem still exists with plugins disabled) resetting Firefox, changed newtab settings to about:home etc, restarted, deleted cookies. Nothing seems to work. Some other program seems to be overriding the Firefox settings. May be a virus. I am using the latest McAfee software.

I once had an add-on that brought up thumbnails with a new tab but I removed that a while back. On the right hand side search bar of firefox I can see that Bing is one of the dropdown search engine choices not that it should make a difference but I thougth they were sometimes a bit aggresive.

Anyhow, would love to know if there is a solution as it's making me suspicious of having an undetected visus or hijacking.

Whenever I click a link, it opens in a new tab. This just started almost a week ago, but I didn't change any settings or click anything--it just started doing it by itself. It is extremely irritating, because it just increases the number of tabs I have.

This has happend to me for some days,

I access some pages that have links from where you can access messages and other things by opening them on new window. But for some days now I click on these links and nothing appears and this is only happening with Firefox because with my other browsers everything is fine, I can access these pages. I've tried and proved this with flashscore.com and other social webpages but I just can't open links on new window.

Where is the problem.

When I close and reopen firefox, it restores my tabs, but it restores tabs from hours or days ago, not the ones that were open when I closed the window - why?

I normally keep my Firefox window open for long periods of time because I have a lot of active tabs. When I close the window and reopen it, I am still able to restore tabs, but as of a few weeks ago, it has stopped restoring the most recent version. Normally, when I would close and reopen, the tabs would be the same ones that were open when I closed the window. Now, it restores to a version from a few days ago instead of the current version. I have to revert to pulling my more recent tabs out of the recent history. I checked my options and I can't figure out any way to control this. How can I fix it so that I can count on my Firefox window to restore the tabs that I actually care about?

I have a complex home tab set up. It consists of 8 tabs. every day when I re log into my system and start firefox the home tabs are erases and I get Yahoo as my home screen. I re set my browsers tabs to my desired urls and go to options and say use current tabs as home. Every time I do this the next day it happens again. I will add that my home system is a Mac and work system is a PC they are synched. I am running 17.0.1. I am flipping out. How do I stop this problem
