I have created some firefox collections but have difficulty getting to the collections screen. On a collections help page it says "In the Collections section on the Home screen" but my android phone does not show a collections section, just icons. What is the problem? I also cannot figure out how to find the version of firefox that is installed, if that may be the issue.

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!

The latest Android+Firefox update has Firefox opening in Immersive Mode (full screen, hiding Navigation bar and Status/notification bar). I am frequently navigating between apps, so this requires me to do a lot of extra gestures in my daily interactions with Firefox. Also, I miss being able to quickly check the time and my battery life in the status bar. I know some people like immersive mode, but there are many use cases where forced full screen is not desirable, so there should be a setting to toggle this off.

Hello everybody, I use Firefox for some days now, but I'm a little annoyed with the back button / back gesture usage with tabs. On all browsers I already tried, pressing back button finally close the tab after going back to the first website opened. But with Firefox, it only go to home and let the website open without closing taba. So we have to often close manually opened tabs. Is there a way to change that please ? Sorry for my bad english, I hope it's clear.

Thanks in advance.

Since an update a few weeks ago, every time I enter an address or tap one of my most visited sites, instead of continuing on from the previous site, it opens a new tab.

I've scoured the settings but can't find anything. Surely this is a bug? I end up with 10 tabs within minutes. Can't understand what the purpose of this change is

I need to do local admin work on the router in my motorhome. Not surpisingly, its admin is on 192.168.0.1:80. Everything I type gets sent to Google search instead. How can I just enter a IP address without going to a Internet search engine. Just tell me it's easy in the latest Firefox for Android and I'll finally update LOL. Currently on Firefox 68.11.0 on Samsung Android 9

Yesterday I tried downloading a document but it failed to do so. Since then, the 'Download failed' message keeps popping up as a warning in Android. I can't acknowledge it by clicking on the message, but I can swipe it away until it comes back within about 2-30 minutes. The message seems to appear only when Firefox is not running in the foreground. There are no tabs open and this download is not available in the Downloads list. I can't clear the downloads list by the way, which is weird.

I already forced a shutdown of the app and cleared the cache. I haven't tried to clear all data as I don't want to set up the app all over again. I'm sure that works but that's not the solution for this.
