This applies to the latest Firefox for Android version (this issue did not occur with the previous version). I manually closed my tabs and closed the Firefox app when I exit. However, when I open the app again, the previously closed tabs are there as if they were never closed. This is fixed if I delete browsing data but, obviously, this is not an ideal solution. I have tried to attach a short clip of this issue in action but it will not upload. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.

I often download multiple files daily. Firefox has a confirmation box that pops up every time, so I have to type twice for each download. I also have to tap OK for the first confirmation before it will let me tap to download again. Is there a way to turn this off for mobile, even if it's limited to a single trusted site? Or is this possible in Nightly?

I normally have Dark Mode always enabled.

This week it's constantly switching to "Follow Device Theme" which then makes it the Light theme.

Interestingly, my phone's theme is also set to Dark mode so the Follow setting doesn't appear to work.

Thanks!

I remember sites with related terms not always being grouped up not too long ago. The change isn't bad but would like to know how to disable it. The main issue being ever since this change was implemented, it breaks some functionality. It keeps you from being able to look through the rest of your history until you delete the group. Either it prevents you from continuing to scroll down. Or when you do keep scrolling, it keeps looping the sites already shown.

After a recent update, maybe 95 or possibly 94, I've begun to experience a small but very annoying issue with using the URL/searchbar.

I'll usually just enter my query, e.g "test", but this now opens 2 tabs, 1. with the actual search result page and 1 tab that opens a new search result page. This happens when using different search engines. I've tried re-installing the app, clearing all cache, storage, removed my Firefox Sync account etc. with no changes.

I've recorded a video of the behaviour: https://photos.app.goo.gl/ZLEZ2omVJaWXTEaM8

https://www.mozilla.org/en-US/security/advisories/mfsa2022-09/

Looking at the security advisory above this was fixed in the releases just 3 days ago, but on Google Play FF beta has not been updated since 24 February. The website to download it on Mozilla.org only links to Google Play and not directly to any updated APKs. Firefox Stable for Android shows an update but not beta. How does FF Beta for Android handle zero day bugs like this without timely updates?
