Firefox is no longer new window when I drag the contents of the active window outside the browser.
After just upgrading to Firefox 9 of Firefox 3.6, I noticed that a certain element is missing. In the old version, I could drag the contents of the tab out of the browser or the active window and it would automatically force this content in its own window again. I found this feature extremely useful, and I can do it no longer. That's happened? There just is no longer supported or is this a bug? If it is not supported, how can I reopen the current window/tab in a window again like before?
It works if you drag the tab slightly downwards in the browser window?
When using Firefox on a Windows system, I can get a url (no hyperlink) open in a new tab by dragging the address bar while pressing the Alt key on the keyboard.
Now I use Firefox (latest version) on a Linux system (Linux Mint 14, specifically), but I can't do the same thing. is there a solution of reproduc this behavior?
Thanks in advance
Dragging the URL/text next to a tab should open in a new tab. It does not?
You should be drag text to the area shown on this screenshot.
I keep my browser set to remember my tabs open when I close Firefox. Since the last update, but I couldn't get there. I checked my preferences and the option to keep the tabs in Firefox closing is always selected. When I go to for closing of Firefox, however, I get the 'you are about to close X tabs' message and all the tabs are forgotten. When I open Firefox again the tabs I had open are all gone. I tried to re-selecting the option 'save my tabs' several times, but he did not a difference in Performance Explorer, even if the settings are still correct when I check again. I'm not sure what to do about this, but it's quite maddening and I would really like to find a solution, best before frustration leads me to find another browser to use.
Use "Firefox > output" (Windows: Firefox/file > quit;) Mac: Firefox > quit Firefox. Linux: Firefox/file > exit) to close Firefox if you are currently doing by clicking on the X close in the title bar of Firefox.
In the case you use 'clear history of Firefox closing. "
- do not erase browsing history
- Tools > Options > privacy > Firefox will be: "Use the custom settings for history": [X] 'Clear history of Firefox closing' > settings
Firefox update and retrieve files in the sessionstore-backups folder and create a sessionstore.js file when you close Firefox?
You can use this button to go to the current Firefox profile folder:
- Help > troubleshooting information > profile directory: see file (Linux: open the directory;) Mac: View in the Finder)
Everytime I open Firefox I get my home page, but a second tab opens automatically to the options screen. I don't want or need that, and I can not figure out how to stop.
You can check the setting of the home page to see if the subject: preferences page is attached (| subject: preferences #general).
This can happen if you click on "use current page (s) ' to set the home page.
You can check the home page setting
- Tools > Options > general > startup: Homepage
Firefox supports several home pages separated by ' |' symbol (pipe).
You can pin the tab with the subject: the preferences page to avoid including: preferences for layout home page if you want to use this button.
To set a page as the home page, you can drag the globe/lock for the Home button.

That may be a problem with the DDE.
Try to undo and redo Firefox as default browser.
Make a different browser like IE browser by default and then let Firefox do it again.
Firefox guard open a new window every time when I click on a tab to open it. Happens quite a few times per day now and it's annoying.
Versions of Firefox 3.5 and later have a feature called tabs.
You can detach a tab in the current window and open in a new window by dragging a tab in the browser window.
You can drag the tab to the tab bar in the original window to cancel this detachment.

Start Firefox in Firefox to solve the issues in Safe Mode to check if one of the extensions or if hardware acceleration is the cause of the problem (switch to the DEFAULT theme: Firefox (Tools) > Add-ons > appearance/themes).

I often have 7 or 8 tabs open in Firefox. Sometimes, when I click on a tab, Firefox opens in a new window instead of going to this tab. I did not understand a boss when it does.
A will (usually at lower) very light movement causes the tab to "tear" / "snatch" in a new window. You can drag the tab to the window of the new window origin.
You can install this add-on to stop the behavior "tear off" / "tear off":

You must update some plug-ins:
- Plugin check: https://www-trunk.stage.mozilla.com/en-US/plugincheck/

- Next-generation Java plug-in for the Mozilla browser: install or update Java in Firefox
Before the last update Firefox, running on Ubuntu if it makes a difference, I was able to select close on the file menu (and if memory is also by clicking the x on the last tab) to exit an instance of Firefox open via file new window.
With the 9.x update this no longer seems to be possible. If I choose the file altogether starting an instance that was launched via the new window, all instances of Firefox away!
It's embarrassing because I have to leave all the instances that have been launched.
I tried closing last tab add on, and it allows me to close the last tab content but still leaves the instance running with a blank tab.
Is there a setting somewhere that I missed to restore the operating mode to exit the additional instances of Firefox without killing all the previous configuration?
Each window must have its own close button (big X in the right corner.)
But it depends on the 'Theme' that you use in Ubuntu. This large X chould be a round point when you hover over the color changes. It could be on the left instead of the right site.
This screenshot shows the close the left side, but always an X button.
CTRL + SHIFT + W closed the window Active.
CTRL + W closes the current tab.

Cor - el will no doubt come with suggestions. I will list the accident report Details incase they help someone. The accident occurred when a component associated Windows is in use. Have you ensured you have no background task running, and no unnecessary plugins Firefox are running.
No reason to expect to be directly related, but a previous incident with the same signature took place when bookmarks were used, and the solution in this instance was:
I found out that an option in Microsoft File Explorer caused the crash. To solve this: - Go to "Organize" - Choose "Folder and search options" - uncheck "Automatically expand to current folder"
Now Firefox won't crash again!
Your reports for s CrashID all have the same signature

All windows disappear except Composition and Windows calendar when you drag the time indicator current (CTI). When I let go of the mouse, all the windows reappear. I'm sure I've accidentally changed a parameter overview, but I can't find where this setting is. I want just all the Windows I normally opened to stay there while I drag the CTI. Any ideas how to solve this problem?
I have NVidia Quadro FX 3800, driver version 341.92, which is one of the most recent drivers, but that made me think. In the NVidia Control Panel, I checked manage 3D settings and restored all global and set default settings. Now it does not work properly. I think that I have stayed a while to solve something for a different application, and who touched somehow AE. Thanks for the help!
When I open the browser, I get an extra tab in addition to my home page that opens. I want my home page to open.
Have you checked the target line in the properties of the desktop shortcut?
You can check the suspicious extensions or recently installed unknowns.
Start Firefox in Safe Mode to check if one of the extensions (Firefox/tools > Modules > Extensions) or if hardware acceleration is the cause of the problem.
- Put yourself in the DEFAULT theme: Firefox/tools > Modules > appearance
- Do NOT click on the reset button on the startup window Mode safe
I select save files, but when I close the browser and open it again, he was always ask me where to save files. Whenever I closed and re-opened my browser it goes back to ask me where to save files.
Start Firefox in Safe Mode to check if one of the extensions (Firefox/tools > Modules > Extensions) or if hardware acceleration is the cause of the problem (switch to the DEFAULT theme: Firefox/tools > Modules > appearance).
- Do NOT click on the reset button on the startup window Mode without failure.
If you do not keep the changes after a reboot or have problems with preferences, see:
If you like Advanced SystemCare software that could restore some files from older versions to protect files against the changes and then check their settings or uninstall this software.
