Firefox would be the best browser if Mozilla ALLOWED US TO MOVE TABS AND BOOKMARKS so that we could keep tabs about the same topic together.

But Mozilla doesn't seem to be concerned with such a simple and basic function, nor the users that request it. We used to be able to move tabs (like in my list of 55 tabs), but with the last update...

Not only can we not move tabs to group them, but an accidentally closed tab that is "undone" is put at top of page, away from its other related tabs. Many good changes, but one really bad one. Please allow us to move tabs.

My browser opens new links in new tabs. I want them to open new links in the same tab.

Others inquire about the same issue get a response saying:;

"Did you try it? Some sites add a target="_blank" attribute to links. Links with these attributes are supposed to open in a new window when left clicked. However, Firefox by default opens these links in a new tab in the current window. By setting browser.link.open_newwindow to 1, these links will instead open in the current tab/window."

I need step-by-step help understanding what I need to do to set the browser are suggested in the above response.

Hi,

Just got version 89.0 installed. And I totally don't like what happened to the tabs. They are visually disconnected from the page they belong to and transformed to some kind of buttons (at least when selected. When not slected only the caption is visible) . I cannot even imagine why such a useless change is done, but in terms of UI design this is not a good step. It makes things less clear.

I would like to have to old tabs back, but cannot find a theme which can do this.

Is there a setting with which I can set to old tabstyle back?

Thnx

Closing tabs individually creates a too large info box

There is a large info box popping up in the bottom of the screen when I close tabs. I usually press 'x' and close tabs starting with the last one but this info box that says 'tab closed' and has an undo button on it, is covering a big portion of the last tab including it's 'x' button. It is even larger in landscape mode. This is very annoying and if I want to close another tab I'd have to wait for it to disappear or try to press around it. It's a useful feature but could the experience be made more better?

"Tab Closed, Undo" Button Directly Over The Ability To Close The Next Tab. ALSO STILL CAN'T REORDER TABS IN TAB LIST.

There is a design flaw in a recent update of firefox for android. When I am trying to close tabs quickly from the bottom, the "tab closed, undo" button is now positioned directly over the X mark on the next tab to close the next one and I have to wait until it goes away to close the next tab. This is extremely frustrating and I am hoping this is fixed soon. It is taking 3 times as long to close my tabs in the order I would like to. The button just needs to be very slightly thinner and the X mark for the next tab will not be blocked anymore.

I ALSO WANT TO ADD THAT I STILL CANNOT REORDER MY TABS ON ANDROID AND IT IS DRIVING ME INSANE. PLEASE FIX!!!!

I rely on the previous sessions being restored after (the more and more frequent) updates for my work, as I usually need to keep track of many tabs.

Is there a way to save and restore all the currently opened tabs across multiple browser instances? (WITHOUT sharing this outside my computer!)

If you're going to tell me it does this 'automatically' well, yes, it usually does, except for the times when it doesn't.

I recently switched from a Huawei P20 to a Samsung Galaxy S21 Ultra. Under tabs settings I have grid selected on both phones. The Huawei phone shows the tabs 1 pane wide and 2 high and you scroll up and down to view them all. As such, the tabs are very easy to read. The Samsung shows the tabs 2 panes wide and 4 high. The panes are small, difficult to read and show far too much info to be comfortable (at least for me). Is there any way to set the size of the grid layout or is this a preferred layout for Huawei. I recently gave up on Google Chrome because they disabled the "tile" feature for their tabs.
