Hello,

as the Firefox Sync is not working with incognito tabs (which is sort of intended), I sometimes stumble on the problem that I opened an URL in incognito mode but find it useful to safe for later reference (be it rereading, quoting or whatever).

Since some time (a few weeks maybe) I found the option to share the incognito tabs gone. I can share regular tabs but the option is not there for the incognito tabs. To test this, I go to the list of open tabs and long-press one of the tabs of interest. Recently, I was able to select some tabs and tap the share icon. This no longer happens.

Was this intentionally removed? I do not see the use-case, especially as it allowed to selectively close multiple tabs quickly.

Thanks

Can't force landscape with Firefox Android

I usually view websites in landscape. However, when switching between portrait and landscape, firefox seems to refresh the page. This is a problem between browsing sessions, where I just want to continue where I was at. I may be 1/2 way down a page, exit the browser, come back to it a couple of hours later.

The app will start in portrait and then change to landscape. During this process, the page refreshes twice and when it finishes reloading, I will be on a different position on the page and have to find my way back to where I was reading.

So... I want to force firefox in landscape mode to prevent this problem. However: 1. There seems to be no menu item to allow this. 2. A web search says this is available in about:config, but about:config seems to have been disabled a couple of years ago.

Can anyone help with how to force Firefox for Android in landscape?

I enjoy playing Bridge and use a site called Bridge Club Live. I can log in fine but when i go to the playing page, it loads incorrectly and the writing is enormous, with only a tiny part of the screen shown. I have tried to resize to no avail. The technical people at BCL have no idea why its doing this and neither have I. Can anyone suggest anything? I have the latest Firefox Browser and it works fine on Chrome but I'd much rather use Firefox. I am using a Samsung tablet. Hope someone can help. thank you.

I have tried to upload a photo but the upload just keeps going round and round and never finishes.

I switched to Firefox from yandex browser recently on both desktop and android recently and have been really enjoying it, but pages on android 11 (galaxy a52) load very slow for some reason. It is much slower than yandex, and i find it weird, because it's the other way around on desktop, and i've heard good things about firefox's speed as well. Maybe the issue isn't in the browser. I run latest version of it, and tried google search and duck duck go. It was alright on google, still slower, but bearable. On ddg it's just barely working. The internet speed is fine, and i don't use any vpn or proxy. Speed remains slow both using wifi and cellular.

(The following is translated by Google Translate) I am an Android user. In the web page, click the password input box, the web page will automatically enlarge and automatically move the password input box to the center of the screen. Firstly, I do not like this design. Secondly, there are some problems with the automatic enlargement of the web page, for example, the web page will be fixed after enlargement and cannot be narrow, then,the page automatically enlarge, causing 1Password's floating window to misplace,(1password is a password manager),When you click the password input box,1password's floating window will appear,However, at this time, the web page of Firefox will automatically enlarge when entering the password,and automatically center the password box,but the floating window of 1password won't move, and it remains in place,and then there was a problem. In addition to these two problems, there is another small problem,All in all, I don't like this design, not only because I don't like it, but also because it has many problems.Therefore,I hope that we can turn off the automatic enlargement of the webpage, turn off automatic center the password box on the screen
