After many failed attempts with add-ons I come to this forum to ask this basic question. How can I sort bookmarks either alphabetically or manually? I don't understand how such a basic function can be missing from any browser????

Also there seems to be some problem in the Firefox "system" where it thinks I'm looking for desktop applications despite the fact that all of my queries are initiated through the Android browser.

Following the latest firefox update ,Jan 2020 my browser has practically stopped. I have used firefox for many years and have had no issues whatsoever. I have not added any extensions etc. To firefox in at least a year, or changed my antivirus. I have read that there was a high security update/patch very recently which I believe can slow firefox down, but I cannot work with the current speed. It is so bad I have had to use Microsoft edge! Can anyone help to get me back onto firefox? Many thanks, Paul

I am constantly getting signed out of all my logins simultaneously. When I try to log back in I get error messages saying "sorry you'll have to log in first" or "sorry we couldn't find that, try searching for something else." The only way I can fix it is by restarting my phone. It's driving me insane, I have cookies enabled so this shouldn't be happening. Please help

Pocket button disappeared in the three-dots menu. It is replaced by a Bluetooth button.

Now, I searched for solutions obviously. However, the about:config page has not one listing with the word 'pocket' in it, so I can't just reactivate it.

I'm would like this function back and I was wondering whether one of you could help me!

External links overriding current tabs instead of opening a new tab

Hello,

I've recently switched to Firefox mobile on my Android (Samsung Galaxy 7) because the Samsung browser had a few issues. However, I'm having a few issues with tabs. There seems to be no setting for forcing an external link (from another app) to open in a new tab in Firefox. Instead, it overrides a current tab. Most people keep tabs open for later use, so I can't understand why Firefox would be designed to override that behavior. It's like going back in time before tabbed browsing became commonplace. I've tried editing about: config, but the setting "browser.link.open_external" is already set to 3, which as far as I can tell is supposed to open links in a new tab (why is there no manual/database somewhere with all the current about:config settings listed? How do people memorize what each number means? Why is this not more user-friendly?)

As you might be able to tell, I'm pretty frustrated as this is a very minor thing that should be easy to adjust in normal everyday settings. Everyone opens links in a new tab these days. It's much easier to close an extra tab than it is to find a site you were saving for later that got overridden by clicking a link.

Thanks for any help.

Hi, Really liking the Firefox preview for android. I've switched over from Google (chrome mainly) due to a bug in their sync feature which caused me to lose everything.(300+ passwords, bookmarks etc) Now I'm going through all the websites I used and resetting my passwords to use Firefoxs password manager I was on a..Live cam website one where you can CHAT and BATE specifically, and the videos are incredibly laggy and slow. Chrome,Edge etc work perfectly. Any suggestions?

Also is it possible to change the hold duration to something a bit shorter? For example holdings a link to open in a new tab

Cheers!
