Hi!

I used to be able to activate an audio file on a webpage, then switch tabs or minimize the app or even turn off the screen and still be able to hear the music or whatever I was listening too.

With the new version of Firefox, this doesn't seem possible anymore, but maybe I am missing something?

Is it possible for this to work like before the update?

Many thanks! -Max

I'm using Firefox on Android and after the latest update I have a few issues... Now I'm running 79.0.2 (Build #2015755339).

- When I press the adress bar a completely white page appears (see attached image). Previously my bookmarks used to show up. Why did you remove that feature? - When I long-press a link to, for example, open it in a new tab, the link-description was shown as header for the pop up menu. Now the shortened and often cryptical link is shown instead. Why? - When opening links pointing to anchors in pages (for example first unread message in a forum thread) the browser jumps to the bottom of the page. I dont know if this is due to removed ads, but it worked before the last update.

Hello. I am using the newest google play version of the firefox browser from Hungary. With the new update a lot of things have changed, i like them. But i have a problem. Every time, when i choose a new bookmark from the menu, the app opens a new tab. Because of this, it could happen that i have 6-7 or more opened tabs, which i have to close one by one. When i used the previous versions, the app opened only one tab, this feature wasnt present. Is this a bug or a new feature? If its a feature, how can i turn it off?

I have a basic html index page being served by Ubuntu/Apache at `https://localhost/test.html`. I have `browser.enabled.ssb` set to `true` in about config.

When I open a regular browser window (Firefox 78.0.2) I can navigate to, and load `https://localhost/test.html` no problem but when I run `firefox --profile /home/ubuntu/.mozilla/firefox/a5pwja44.default-release --ssb https://localhost/test.html` I get a connection error. (This is the same profile I'm using when I open a new browser window).

Anybody know why this doesn't work or how to fix?

When you try to scroll down when selecting text and get closer to the end of the page you suddenly get teleported up to the middle of the website. To describe the process. I want to copy part of this page content. I press down on the screen and get one word selected. Then I use the blue bubble to drag down the page. As I do this and get close to the end I get teleported up and can never then select the last part..

Hello, I have a Galaxy Tab S6 tablet and before the recent update tabs was opening above the address bar. But after the update all tabs are opening under that square icon with number, like on the small mobile phone. The whole UI is in this mobile mode, like if it fails to recognize my device as a tablet. Is there anything I could try to fix that? I read some discusions about firefox failing to switch to tablet mode but it used about:config which doesn't seem to even work on the newest firefox.

The problem is spotting the start of a logical grouping in many tabs open at once in a window. I arrange them in order when researching something. So, there's 20 tabs open, 4 different categories of the subject topic. There has to be a way besides a sidebar, to signify fast which group starts where. Best case scenario would be marking the 1st tab of a group with a flag, or static pop-up - a short, 15 character-limit description to signify which group it is (like '4k', '1080p', '720p', for video resolution values). 2nd-best would be a mouse-hover message, i.e. a flag or balloon to pop-up with the 15-character description. Finally, I could color-code the 1st tab of a group, or even the text .I saw some good extensions that did these - looks like Firefox disabled them with the latest browser upgrade. Are there any cross-browser or Firefox persistent apps or add-ons that will let me mark up individual tabs, with either icons, messages, or background colors?
