Basic browser functions in newest Firefox Android upgrade

Automatically received the latest major firefox update on my Samsung galaxy tab s3. I don't know what Mozilla did to this release but I can't find any functions to do basic browser controls like going back to the previous page, going to the next page, or refreshing a page. I really love firefox but it's kind of unusable without these controls. I'm going to have to use chrome which I'd prefer not to do until this is fixed. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Thanks a lot. That helps. I still like the way it used to work.

Hi

You can use the Android back icon to go back a page and the forward icon in the Firefox for Android menu to go forwards a page, close to which is the Refresh icon.

I hope that this helps.

Hello everybody, I have the problem too. I can't find the back icon anymore. Could you please tell me where and how I can adjust it? I made a screenshot of my toolbar, where normally I could find the icons back, forward and refresh. Now 'back' isn't there anymore. For people who are not really able to adjust technical things it's very irritating to loose basic functions!

The android back icon...where can I find this? I use a Samsung s5 and I have a backwards function integrated in the smartphone, but in my eyes it's laborious to use this if you often want to go back and forward. I would prefer to have the Firefox icon back next forward and refresh. Best regards

The Android back button only allows you to move back ONE page at a time, the old feature let you select through the menu exactly where you wanted to go. Always seems like the more improvements the less functionality.
