Hey there, Firefox team. I've been going through the Play Store checking the reviews of the new firefox (android) browser updates. And the people are mad I know, lol. As for me, I've loved the update. I know you guys are at it 100% for making it best for everyone, I just felt like sending this note to the whole team in the middle of all the mad and angry support questions you guys must be getting to make you feel you're not alone and a good percentage of people are finding the new update 5 stars worthy. :)

I hope this message reaches the team. Also, a note to the reader - Don't be selfish, share the note with the whole team. YOU DO YOU, MOZ TEAM! 5 STARS TO ALL OF YOU!

If I set the Menu + Desktop Site toggle, then select a bookmark, the Desktop Site toggle is ignored, and reset.

This makes it impossible to load a bookmark targeted for a desktop site.

Thanks in advance for your attention to this oversight.

I don't know if this is an issue being encountered by anyone else, but few days ago all of a sudden twitter.com stopped opening on Firefox for Android. I trying disabling all my add-ons and turning of protection as well, nothing.

The windows browser is having no issues at all. But for some reason the android just won't open twitter. Everytime I try I get the error: "Cannot Complete Request

Additional information about this problem or error is currently unavailable."

Tried on a different network and a different mobile browser, all seems to be working. Any ideas?

Yesterday I tried downloading a document but it failed to do so. Since then, the 'Download failed' message keeps popping up as a warning in Android. I can't acknowledge it by clicking on the message, but I can swipe it away until it comes back within about 2-30 minutes. The message seems to appear only when Firefox is not running in the foreground. There are no tabs open and this download is not available in the Downloads list. I can't clear the downloads list by the way, which is weird.

I already forced a shutdown of the app and cleared the cache. I haven't tried to clear all data as I don't want to set up the app all over again. I'm sure that works but that's not the solution for this.

restore old tabs view

I'm not sure why Firefox still bothers to call tabs, "tabs". A tab was originally called that because of its similarity to a filing cabinet's physical tabs where you can see the tab markers and use your thumb to quickly select one. As far as I can see Firefox for Android no longer has tabs. There's no tab bar (and even the URL bar is auto-hidden) and to see the 'tabs' you have to drag down, then select a button and then flip your brain from expecting to see a horizontal row of tabs to a vertical list of them. Similarly, to create a new tab used to involve taping on a plus sign in the same place, right next to the other tabs in the bar. Now, to make a new one you have to redirect your attention from the top of the screen (where tabs have always beenl to a plus sign down the bottom. This smacks of just changing things for the hell of it.

So.... The big ask..... is there any way to get back to the system and layout I'm used to and that I still use without a moment's though when I use Chrome? (Which I'd still rather not do all the time...). I'd like my tabs back please.

Hello, recently I've saw that the add-on google search fixer is on the recommended list for android but it's not available in the add-on manager for us to install it. Will this change with a newer version of an android release or is it a mistake?

I want to remove or set my home screen to something else other than the Firefox default.

I've managed to remove everything from the default home screen, which is a start. But I don't want a home screen at all.

Ideally, Firefox would just resume as it was the previous time it opened. That's how it worked until a recent update.

The only advice available right now is using Nightly version as if I'm ready to sacrifice stability over about: config access. The main question is, why was it removed? Is it really accessible in Nightly if the advice was for 79 and I'm on 81 already that I guess should have included changes from Nightly of two versions prior.
