I keep closing webpages when I am done and when I restart my computer ALL the pages reopen in my browser. I closed 300 tabs, went to Firefox view and cleared the "recently closed tabs" from there. I restarted my computer and 400 were opened again. These tabs keep reappearing again. How can I close these and not have them open again?

For a week or so now, spam pinned tabs keep appearing in my Firefox browser. They're always for coupon2deal.com. They appear already pinned, at random times while I'm browsing. Firefox is up to date, and I have Webroot antivirus running and have made it do a scan of my computer.

Firefox keeps pinning ads for random pages that I have never visited. It happens inconsistently, but sometimes when I open Firefox there will be a random ad page pinned. Even if I unpin it, and reopen Firefox the same ad page will be pinned again. I have tried looking it up in settings but could find anything, that make it pop up.

Hi, In the last month or so(always with latest FF) I've lost all my tabs 3 times.

When starting FF it will just show one new tab and not my previously opened tabs. After a few hours of working, somehow, FF will suddenly (I don't think I even closed and reopened FF) will bring back my tabs.

This morning it has happened again and I'm super frustrated.

I am trying to manually restore the previous session. In my Profile folder there is no sessionstore.jsonlz4 file. I tried copying an older one from the "sessionstore-backups" folder to my Profile folder, renaming it to sessionstore.jsonlz4 and deleting the "sessionstore-backups" folder but when I start FF I still get a new windows with 1 new tab and that's it.

I ran "firefox.exe -P" and I only have one profile. Ideas???

Hello, I have a big problem with Firefox (109.0.1 64bit). I start Firefox with the help of devilspie2 to a certain position. But Firefox jumps to a different position than specified every time I start it.

I found out now that it only happens when "Open previous windows and tabs" is active in the settings! If I deactivate the setting, the startup works as it should.

I would like to start with multiple tabs, is there any way to get this problem under control?

Thanks and greetings!

So Amazon audible popped up a firefox session with a talking book after I shutdown. So firefox saved this session to restore next time.

I shut down firefox while I:

1. I understand the file sessionstore.jsonlz4 in session store is a backup of the old tabs. So I saved it

2. I then copied it to the sessionstore folder under the profile. (I only have one folder under the profile folder so it must be the correct target). As a precaution, I also copied the file and renamed it previous.jsonlz4 and recovery.jsonlz4

But I cant get firefox to load it. Firefox stubbornly loads the tabs i just used and then creates new files called previous.jsonlz4 and recovery.jsonlz4 which overwrites my backed up files

So my question is how do I make firefox use the backup file I saved?

TIA/gary

The default browser behavior when I click on a link on a page is to open a pop up window in the current tab. In these cases I'm clicking a link on the pg to my social media account in order to publish a new post linking to my own content.

The new unwanted behavior on clicking the link is for it to open my social media account in a new tab. I want clicking that link to open a pop up of my social media account in the current tab. Is there any about:config setting controlling this, which I can change?

Hi,

First of all, I should ask: Is there a such feature gained with settings or addons that highlights my previous tab, that I didn't closed, but moved from to current tab?

For example: I have 20 tabs opened. And I'm lurking between them so I need to know what was the previous tab where I was before moved to the current tab.

If this feature does not exists I kindly offer to implement it.

Thanks

When you open a web site, a tab is created. And, obviously, if you have more then one site open, they're all there. But I just noticed that with the fourth tab, they stop being visible, and there's arrows on the far left (and right). So if you have five or six pages open and you want to go back to the first tab/web site, you have to hit the arrow on the far left to make that tab visible, and then click on the tab.

So they went from one step/click to two. Why do they do this? If it aint broke, don't fix it!

I don't want it like this. I want all the tabs there, without any arrows. Just like it always was. How do I get it back to what it was?

If I click on any link to Facebook, Facebook then takes over that tab so I cannot return to where ever I was before i clicked on the Facebook link. For example, I have a tab for DuckDuckGo. If I do a search and a link to Facebook appears, and I click on it, I go to the whatever the link is pointed to - but the BACK Button will NOT take me back to DuckDuckGo. The history for that Tab only shows the Facebook page. How can I correct this?
