  1. W10 opens seperate tab for firefox when opening with main firefox icon


    Hello,

    lately I've been having an issue where Windows will open a separate tab for Firefox when i open it with the original pinned icon on my task bar.. I've tried opening firefox and unpinning the pinned shortcut and pinning the opened one and restarting firefox and it didn't solve my issue.. ( i saw this fix on google ) and it turned out not to work.

    I attached a screenshot of the problem, Thank You.

    :)

    Is there a way to enable tab previews for the app icon like aero tab previews option in Firefox

    In Firefox there's an option that allows you to view the open tabs when hovering over the application icon Internet Explorer style. Is there an option in Edge for that?

    Thanks

  3. Browser opens in MSN (Firefox)

    Then, to recap, when Firefox opens

    [1] one tab is MSN and one tab is the ISP homepage?

    Or

    [2] One instance of Firefox opens to the homepage and another instance of Firefox opens to MSN?

    Have you checked Firefox add-ons to see if there's a MSN add-on?

    Have you checked the Firefox home page(s)?

  4. W10 opens seperate tab for firefox when opening with main firefox icon

    Solved!

    Just uninstall Firefox and install it with the default settings ( basically let it create a desktop icon and such.. ) and it'll work just fine! changing where it installs is completely fine as well!
