Hello - the behavior I'm seeing for Android firefox is that everytime I manipulate the url/search bar, whether to do a new search or to edit the existing url, it launches a new tab. This makes my tabs grow exponentially when I'm on a googling chain, and it's irritating. I can't find a setting to change this behavior, does one exist?

Something changed. I often highlight an address when searching, and a menu pops up. That menu has always included google maps. I am no longer getting that option. I have tested it with Chrome and Brave, and it still works. I sync my firefox account between desktop & android, but this is so annoying that I will likely switch to Brave. Trying to remain loyal to firefox, but this is probably a deal breaker.

I'd like to select a small part of a URL that doesn't fit in the address bar. To do a selection, I first do a long click. The issue is that only the right handle appears. The left handle is invisible.

I can move the right handle toward the beginning of the URL in order to get the left handle. But for very long URLs, e.g. if I want to select something near the end of the URL, that's not practical.

Firefox on my Android phone now refuses to connect to my local web server. When I enter the URL, http://mycomputer.home/, Firefox responds with "Address not found" and when I touch the address bar to see the actual address, Firefox has changed it to https://www.mycomputer.home/. How do I get Firefox to just use what I tell it to?!? Other mobile browsers (Chrome, Brave) find and display the page without any problem.

This only recently started happening, possibly after an upgrade. FF version is 92.1.1.
