Using the new Firefox 79 for Android, I find myself with dozens of open tabs. I don't recall this happening with the previous version (like several other things...).

Is there no way to open address bar searches, links etc. in the current/same tab? Thank you.

So, I received version 79.0.5 for Android. Without disrespecting all the fine folks and hard work that went into it, I have to say "Its a mess, not remotely ready for release".

I appreciate the extra tracking protection.

Other "features", not so much.

Is it faster? I have a slow, old device, so one would think an improvement in speed would be noticeable. It's not.

It has new features. But one cannot control them. For example 1. The home screen/page has changed. Firefox has populated it with some things I previously pinned, and added some other things of it's choosing. Like Microsoft does. OK, but where are the previous things that I carefully pushed onto that home screen/page? The last time Firefox changed things I had to adapt to get my home screen/page setup how I like, now it's done it again. It *IS* like Microsoft, trashing my settings whenever they choose. 2. We have Collections. Good idea. But. They cannot be re-ordered. And items inside the collection cannot be re-ordered. The feature is just not ready for release. 3. Log press on a link produces a popup menu that does a weird floppity flop before the stabilizing. 4. Two finger zoom on a page is a disaster. Hard to control, suddenly reverts to the previous state. Again, simply not ready for release. 5. Help has no About. How does one find the version? Answer: from the home screen/page, press the three dot menu icon, press Help (getting one to a Firefox for Android Support page), now press the three dot menu again, press Settings, scroll wa-a-ay down to the bottom, press About Firefox. In testing this "feature" I found that the Settings menu is available on any page that is open EXCEPT the home page/screen. Have I mentioned that it's not ready for release? It's not ready for release.

Sorry to be the bearer of the bad news.

I have installed fennec browser from firefox website. I am able to launch fennec browser through Menu & clicking on firefox icon. and absolutely working fine.

Whereas When I tried to launch the same fennec through command line from X-terminal. it executes and comes out no error messages nothing and still the browser will not be launched. Surprisingly!! the above problem happens only as root user(I mean "sudo gainroot" on N900 X-terminal). Fennec launches well with normal user login. But i need it as a root user to perform it. Help would be greatly appreciated.
