Recent development in the past couple months. Inputting text to input text form fields can often be slow, and is often scrambled.

I found a temporary fix of clearing cache. This needs to be addressed. Two separate phones. Firefox rose to awesomeness again a few versions ago, now, every update seems to make it worse. UI elements look worse to me now.

See how in history, all the stuff I search just shows up as Google URLS and google icons. I cant find the website that I visited without opening them all up one by one to see what they are.

Is This just a google search problem? What is this feature called?

OR is there a way to make firefox display the actual URLS?

Im on Android 11, galaxy s20, firefox app.

i have some custom search engines on Firefox Android 89 (settings > search > add search engine > other).

i noticed that Firefox seems to be ordering the search engines in an arbitrary order.

when i first add the searches, they appear in the order that they are added.

but after the phone is restarted (note: not the browser, the phone), the search engines are ordered in a different way.

this same order shows up in both the settings search engine list (settings > search) and also the search engine selection list (url bar > search engine)

i have observed: - it is not sorted by alphabetical by engine name - it is not sorted by alphabetical by engine url (with or without protocol prefix) - it is not sorted by order added - it is deterministic: if i delete an engine and re-add it, even if i name it something different, after a phone restart it'll still return to the same position it was before

so my questions are: 1. how exactly does Firefox sort the search engines? 2. how do i set a custom order for the search engines?

thanks!

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.
