In the browser, how to access the tabs sidebar without going to the top of active page

Posted

Sometimes I like to browse a page with several links - like reddit -, open a few links on a separate tab, read them, and then go back to the main page to resume reading from the point where I was before.

The problem is when I'm far down on the page, I have to scroll way back to the top in order to the address bar and "show tabs" button to appear. Is there an alternate way to do that? Maybe a gesture or some hidden button to show the sidebar with the tabs?

Hi felipekfcosta,

Thanks for this suggestion, we don't currently have a way to get to the tabs without scrolling to the top.

But, we do have a longer-term plan to add a gesture to the browser that enables you to swipe to another tab, no matter where you are on the page. Thanks for using Firefox OS and sending your feedback & questions.
