Like the title says but first some context Since the horrible android browser REDESIGN this has happened, never before, im using the latest version and this has happened with every update since that unneeded and unwanted NEW firefox came out Before i could have up to 60 tabs in normal navigation, and the same amount in private, watch videos and animations at least ten tabs of those on each browsing section, the worst that could happen eas all private tabs would close and that was on rare cases Now it (closing)tends to happen 3 days or so, no matter how many on normal navigation or even private but the recurring thing is, opening videos sometimes work, but sometimes the entire browser crashes and with each crash all normal tabs dissapear as well and since you removed so many options including about:blank and other abouts that j knea how to use to recover pages, now is simply an entire session GONE and this has happenes 3 entire times already, the first time it happened i lost months of browsing i had prior to the dreaded update, they were gone and since, i try to use even less the browser, but is the only one with addon support(same addons i installed firefox years ago on android and guess what, none of them were active when the redesign installed the first time or worked and still the crash happened, so if none of your technicians can provide anything other than the boiler plate reaponse of " please update to the most recent version" (which both already are, firefox and android system) "disable addons" which they were the first crash, and reinstall(which i did when i tried to migrate to opera before i realized i can't install a good adblocker on their android version), then DO NOT BOTHER on answering(also, even webm format as well as many others seem to crash it JUST FINE)

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,

Quite à few month ago, after update, my new Firefox for Android does not allow me to access to the print option. I cannot find the page nor the tools options using my mobile. When using edge, chrome or other browser, I still do have this option and therefore able to print pdf copies of the resources I do want to archive. Is it possible to know why these printing options are unaccessible on Firefox using Android ?

Do I need to keep Chrome and Android System Webview updated even though I no longer use Chrome?? I'm a faithful user of Firefox For Android and I don't have any use for Chrome/ASW but I've never been 100% certain that I could leave chrome behind without updates. I'm in that long slowgoing breakup with Google Products but at the same time I want to be certain I'm not causing any harm or security issues with my devices while doing so. Thank you in advance for your time and help

Open Tabs, no add-ons to save externally, how do I extract the open tabs?

I have too many tabs to go through, too many to individually open in synched Mozilla desktop (this process is laborious as there is not a dedicated window for open tab management in synched devices, each time you click one of the synched open tabs it shuts the synchronized tabs box down so going through them all is not feasible, not to mention long as hell!

There is no longer tab management add-ons because Mozilla android is now being "curated" with Mozilla add-ons or something other. So I don't have a one stop solution which will help me to deal with these tabs.

What do I do? Is there a internal tab management system that I can access, copy the URLs to save in text format? This would help a lot. OR... Just let us use the normal add-ons, which you have left available for the desktop version... Like wth?

Most mobile sites are of a lower quality than their desktop counterparts. Less features and constant requests to download unnecessary apps are annoying and waste screen space. How do I force the Firefox app to only open desktop sites?

Because when I do the toggle bar it only works for one tab and when I open links to new tabs, it switches them back to the mobile version. Which for some sites that prevents me from being able to read or access things because the mobile version switches to a page that is just a prompt to download the app and clicking the desktop toggle doesn't bring me back to the page I wanted.

I saw there used to be an addon that would have been useful. It's dead now. Is there any useful replacement add on? Any convenient workarounds?
