Firefox (Beta & Nightly) for Android seems to have multiple windows / instances running. This breaks gesture navigation, as returning to a "previous app" actually goes to the "other" Firefox, which is weirdly the same window.

Hi David

I hope I can help, but not quite sure what you mean. Are you referring to different tabs?

Hi

Please see this video. Android thinks there are 2 copies of the same Firefox open and gesture navigation is broken because of it.

Hi David

I have had a look on the GitHub page where we are managing the work on our new browser and it does look like we have further work to do to support gesture navigation in the new Firefox for Android. You can follow this work at https://github.com/mozilla-mobile/fenix/issues/10585.
