I had a little over 100 tabs open on Firefox, and they disappeared when I opened the app. I did not close them, I have auto-close set to never and inactive tabs turned off. They're not in my recently closed section, although the tabs I did close during my last session were there. The individual websites are still in my history.

This has been randomly happening for almost a year now, but this is the second time this month. My tabs keep disappearing with no warning and no apparent way to get them back, and it's always when I'm over 100 tabs. The weird thing is I've been over 400 tabs before with no issues, so idk why barely over 100 now is an issue. Why does this keep happening? Is there a way to get my tabs back?

I tend to use multiple tabs at once - not an extreme amount, maybe 10-20, so I can rapidly task switch. But recently, each tab does a full reload EVERY time I switch to it or it otherwise gains focus. Not only does this slow me down immensely (my DNS is not very fast) but it wastes quite a lot of my time waiting and often causes data loss if I had been entering data on the tab that reloads.

My research says that there is a config option about "disable autoreload", but I can't access about:config. When i type it in the address bar it just treats it as a normal search.

This is incredibly infuriating. I've been using Firefox since the Netscape/Mozilla days, do I finally have to switch to Chrome?

I have Firefox sync set up for my desktop and Android. For the past moth or so Firefox on Android can't send tabs to my desktop as it says "No devices connected". Despite this I can send tabs from my desktop to the Android install.

I am using the latest ESR on Windows, and have used both the latest main release and beta versions of Firefox. This issue has been ongoing for several versions. Full uninstall and removal of local files for both devices has not helped, neither has signing in an out. It seems that the Android side simply cannot see there's other devices period.

When attempting to share the current tab from Firefox Nighly Android to my linked Linux Firefox no devices appear. I have previously had the issue where too many devices were listed, duplicates and old/one time logins. The unavailability of devices started around the time Firefox on Linux got the new "tab zero" or whatever it's called, the left most pinned styled tab that displays previously closed tabs from all devices (which works well and is a great idea). Anyway this is more of a bug report cuz this has been bugging me for a while.

Merry Christmas all, much love!

Hello, How is it possible to run different instances of Firefox on Windows and on Android? I would like to have for the same user e.g., Firefox_1 with one set of open tabs and Firefox_2 with a different set of open tabs. Is this possible, and if so, how to do it on Windows and how on Android? Or, is there another way of selecting in Firefox between two (or more) windows with different sets of open tabs? Thanks and regards, Marcel

Android 13, ff 107.1.0..... on previous Android phone, when I clicked a link in an email, the web page would open, and I could click an X on the tab and return to the email message. Now this requires several steps to get back to the email. How do I get back to the X on the tab to return to email message?

An email message with several links becomes pretty tedious in this new version.

As of this evening, Firefox for Android no longer opens links from webpages. This was working just fine yesterday, but any attempt to solve the issue has resulted in failure.

  • I can still open links manually by copy-pasting them into a new tab.
  • I have tried disabling all add-ons, to no effect.
  • I discovered this through my regular browsing, but I have also tested a random Google search page, as well as various links in Mozilla Support.
  • Javascript appears to be unaffected.

Current version is Firefox for Android 106.1.0.

Hello,

I've been using Dolphin for a few years because of its interface, where tabs are displayed above the address bar.

But it hasn't been updated in over a year, so would like to move to Firefox… but FF on Android doesn't support that feature out of the box while it does in the web version.

Is there an add-on available?

Thank you.

Hi all,

I've read a bit before, and it seems to be impossible to get the tabs available directly (FF Android), as it used to be : a real pitty in my opinion (I did tried to get used to the new Firefox, but really, I am wasting my time to switch on my many "tabs") I guess that this option won't be available again?

Here is my additional question then : how to switch between tabs in one click, or how to a dedicated close a tab in 1 click? - yes, I know that I can swipe left of right, nice feature, but it doesn t do the job efficiently - I know too the "tab" menu but it means at minimum 2 clicks

I've been using ff almost since the beginning as default browser, but since the tabs had been suppressed , I am less and less on my tablets. Let's hope now you are not planning to perform the same with FF for pc...

PS : as "tabs" are not any more tabs (don't trust me, just search "tabs for paperwork" and compare with the so called "tabs" now in FF), I strongly suggest that you rename your feature to something else)

PS2 : really sorry if my post appears a bit angrier, i mean no offense as I do recognize the amazing work whic had been performed along al those years, but seriously, suppressing basics stuff is the worst idea (it reminds me a bit opera, which used to be outdated, but which I am using again now as they improved a lot, and thanks to the FF no tabs policy)

When I open firefox on my laptop, it does exactly what I want it to do, and displays a blank tab. No pockets, no bookmarks, no past tabs, nothing. Just a tab, and a blank background. In order for this to work, I had to change multiple settings and set [browser.sessionstore.resume_from_crash] in about:config to "false."

Firefox on my mobile devices is missing most of these settings, and of course, mobile Firefox does not have about:config (a fact which I find incredibly frustrating). The only setting I have found that stops tabs from reopening in a new session is dot menu > settings > general > tabs which offers me these choices:

o Never x After one day o After one week o After one month

Given that I use Firefox multiple times a day, even selecting the shortest possible setting means that my tabs will always reopen when I start a new session. I do not want tabs restoring! If I want to restore a session, I will use "restore previous session." I don't need the app doing it for me, unless I ask. How can I turn off this incredibly irritating feature?

Hi, this is an idea: To be able to sort the order of tabs.

Often I'll be browsing for something one day, then move on to something else and continue browsing/researching the first thing again later or the next day. Suddenly I have lots of tabs on differrent subjects open and no way to organize the order of them, with using bookmarks/collections, which would be timeconsuming. Being able to reordering them would be really helpful, and also make the „swipe between tabs“ a lot more useful, without having to scroll back and forth through tabs within different subjects.

And especially on my tablet, where I have lots of tabs open when researching this would be great. :)

Hope you'll consider this.
