On the Firefox Android app, after closing few tabs, exiting the application and re-entering the application, the closed tabs reappears as if they weren't closed at all. I found this is a well known bug and there are few open threads on bugzilla on this topic. Someone said that's related to a corruption of the closed tabs' json file.

PS. It's difficult to share a screenshot, probably a video is more explanatory

Hi, this issue has been present for a long time for me, and with many versions of Firefox Nightly for Android.

I'm always using the latest nightly for browsing Youtube only, with a set of specific settings and addons (since we can't use profiles on Android yet)

My problem is I've configured the Homepage to never show anything but a few URLs I chose to pin, you can see my settings and my homepage in the screenshots attached.

Despite the "Recently visited" setting being disabled, sometimes, but not everytime, the last pages I visited are added to the Homepage, after the pinned sites. I have no idea what triggers it or not, if I'm doing something wrong or if it's a bug.

Thanks for your help !

My computer restated itself with an update. Now Firefox and all my bookmarks and saved log in info is gone. I normally can solve this by simply logging in and syncing from my phone. Firefox will not open a log in page from any of the icons on any Firefox page. I can log in using Chrome but of course sync from there is not possible. I can log in on my phone also. The problem is either my Mac settings or the Firefox settings on that computer. I have searched FAQ etc. No clear solutions can be found.

I use the mobile version of Mozilla firefox and it choose to "remove" the open in other app feature for certain apps.

If I open youtube.com mozilla would ask to "open in other app" as an option instead of just opening it in the browser, youtube, twitter/X, reddit, etc. are fine, but for certain apps such as Pixiv and Patreon the option just dissapeared entirely, not even in the tripple dots at the bottom right does this option appear, can anyone help?

Triggered usually by any Website with a (google) map.

   Chrome on Android 13 on the Oukitel RT5 displays these Websites properly.

'Split Screen' functionality & gestures useless. The appear they might work until finger contact with the touchscreen is discontinued, then every attempt rebounds to half the screen still black.

  The only 'way out' of 'split' screen is to exit FF.
There appears no way to 'disable' Android's split-screen functionality

Hello there! I have an issue with the context menu, which appears on selecting a word on any web site (you can see it on the screenshot attached one after another as it appears)

The context menu is too long, and most frequent options like copy text are in the end (I should switch it many times to copy anything, it appears only on the third tap, and some weird functions like search in Edge appears before the really useful ones). How could it be fixed?

Lately, Firefox for Android has started "forgetting" active tabs. I have changed absolutely nothing in the settings. Most of the Active Tabs I've had for years are gone. Now I only have about 5 left & they get corrupted every couple of days. For example, the 3rd one in the attached Screenshot: I'm playing "catch-up" on old Guardian crosswords, currently on 15,179. At irregular intervals, say every couple of days, it gets replaced with an older one, 15,166 for example. I suspect it must have been changed in the Version released on March 19, 2024 (124.0)

Dear Firefox team,

Since the two or three latest Updates of your browsers, a strange bug occours everytime watching a video. When I pause it and let it play again, the video goes under quite some lagging/stuttering. The audio is fine, but the video is not on screen is not. I have to go back on the video bar, so it runs smoothly again.

And before it comes, I already tried the usal methods, such as clearing the cache, clearing browser history, cookies, used privat tab, deibstalled adblocker etc. Nothing worked, and it happens even with different versions, such Firefox normal, nigtly, waterfox etc. And with every video player, not just a specific one. And I teued it on two different smartphones. Is there any solution or planning to fix this?

Hello,

My Firefox Android tabs in grid view constantly get reset.

I can open 5 new tabs and them be in order and at the bottom, since they are the last viewed. Then when I reopen Firefox they are gone and tabs I had closed before are back there.

My history tab is also always blank unless I search.

I appreciate any help :)
