Hi everyone,

I've enabled the Restore previous session feature (in Settings->General->Startup). All nice and good, except the fact that FF is serving pages from cache when starting up and restoring the session. I would very much like FF to refresh the pages so I can see the live content by default.

Any ideas? Maybe an about:config flag?

Thanks, Mircea.

Dear Sir/Madam,

After the recent firefox update I have the particular problem. When I am creating a new tab then I could not make a click in the middle of the browser as usual to make a web search (through google, please check attached file) but it is allowed only through the address bar.

Yours sincerely, Panagiotis

Between Focus, and Nightly I am unsure which one I should go with. I've read how unhappy everyone is with the original version of the app and I have no idea about these other 2 versions or if there are any other versions of Firefox that could be better.


I'd like to hear from those that have experienced all the versions of firefox please. Thank you.

hello, in the previous versions of Firefox, it was possible to send an article just by clicking on the three small dots in the address bar, I don't find this possibility to send an article and its url to someone by email, almost with a single click. Is there another way to access this feature that was very interesting? thanks !

I request for this option to be buried in an advanced panel somewhere. Firefox's ability to render desktop websites very well is attractive for power users in Android, because there are many websites that work much better in desktop mode, and some websites don't work at all on mobile. There is the ability to specify a user agent override manually, and some outdated add ons but these are very hack ish and janky.

To add insult to injury, I couldn't even use Firefox very own password reset without having one dialog box get in the way of another because of UI issues.
