Hi, I had around 6,500 tabs open in my Firefox on Android v97.2.0. Unfortunately I decided to check how close all tabs works. All my tabs were closed without showing any confirmation warning. And the pop-up to undo seemed to animate in and out without leaving any chance to press it.

I don't know why Firefox keeps making these bad interface decisions. Please treat our tabs with more importance. Regardless of whether someone has 65 or 6,500 tabs open, the close all tabs button should not lose them so easily. And you place close all tabs right under the recently closed tabs button. Close all tabs should be hidden in tab settings, not openly accessible to make a mess. If you insist on keeping it out in the main menu, please ask twice and warn about the number of tabs which will be closed.

I have another idea, for which I have sent feedback and nobody seems to have read it. I think if a Firefox user is signed into Firefox sync, app their open tabs should be actively saved to bookmarks as they open and close them. This way I should have a folder of open tabs from Android and desktop. And that should have its own failsafe where it shouldn't just sync an accidental close all tabs action.

Please bring these ideas to the attention of the people who fix bugs or design new features for future releases. I may not check this support request too often as I may end up opening 100s more tabs in the next few weeks.

Please make it easier to submit feedback on Firefox for Android. And please take this request seriously. Firefox is approaching v100 and you still make it so easy for people to lose hundreds and thousands of tabs with one click. You seriously need to go back to basics and first respect our open tabs. Prevent them from being accidentally or purposely closed. If I have 6,500 tabs open, when I close all, the undo button should display for 6,500 seconds. Scale it up so I can recover it easier.

Better would have been if you had spent time adding a simple confirmation dialog which asks am I sure I want to close thousands of tabs.

Next, Firefox needs to make a tab system which is like Google Docs combined with Firefox sync for open tabs. Don't just show open tabs synced across devices. Any device can be lost or have close all tabs initiated. Go one step further and have a living automatic bookmark system so that every device feeds into my Firefox account. This way I could have all tabs automatically bookmarked and saved and at least have them accessible if things go wrong.

And this support page should be smart enough not to lose everything I've typed here. Pressing back should not wipe this text box.

Please start designing Firefox to be smarter and actually preserve my tabs and browsing session. Either don't close tabs so easily or automatically bookmark open tabs so even if my phone falls into a lake, I can go home, open Firefox on my laptop and see my open tabs from my phone saved as a folder. Once I get a new phone, Firefox should offer to restore that browsing session of open tabs from that saved folder. This is where you could integrate close tabs automatically for anyone who wants to keep their open tabs and bookmarked open tabs clean and tidy of old tabs.

Going forward I hope you will test Firefox better with people who keep hundreds and thousands of tabs open. Also each stable release in future should work towards my idea of asking confirmation before possibly doing something stupid like closing all 6,500 tabs without checking I'm sure I want to do that. Hopefully that should be possible with one release.

And then over a few releases, please make live open tabs automatic bookmarks a reality. I'm quite sad now that I've lost 6,500+ tabs I had saved to read later, over the last 3 years

Great, half of what I wrote wasn't even submitted above. This support website is really infuriating. I should have copy pasted my feedback into a Google Doc or a calendar event before submitting. I should trust that Firefox has bad design and systems in place to screw up my good ideas.

Please show a character limit and count here while I type feedback.

And this support website should show my local time in the time stamps for my posts. Or show the time zone code next to the time you're using here.

Hi,

The people who answer questions here, for the most part, are other users volunteering their time (like me), not Mozilla employees or Firefox developers. If you want to leave feedback for Firefox developers, you can go to this link. Your feedback gets collected by a team of people who read it and gather data about the most common issues.

You can also file a bug report or feature request. See File a bug report or feature request for Mozilla products for details.
