Hello,

With the last version of Firefox for Android, when you open a link, the link/bookmark is open in a new tab.

How can I open a link/bookmark in the same current tab ?

Thanks for your help.

I'm on Firefox 79, Windows 10. I get jarred by the new tab navigation behaviour, where Ctrl-Tab brings you to the most recent tab rather than the next tab shown along the top. However, I can see its merits. I would like to be able to use both, effortlessly, without having to delve into the preferences to switch behaviour. Is there a way to do this?

My visual limitations make it difficult for me to look up, so the tabs at the bottom are very helpful. Why this effort to place them above? I use them a lot ... and now I have to strain my eyes. Sure you see perfectly well. You could think of people with poor eyesight and older people who are forced to bend their necks. They are two centimeters, yes, but at my age that breaks my neck. I used to use Firefox because I could have tabs down. Not now. It is not ergonomic. Is it time to abandon it? Think about the needs of others. Of all of them.

I can't figure out how to find Collections in my updated version of Firefox Android (8-16-20). I keep reading the directions and can't find it. I only see 3 dots at the top, and can't find anything related to Collections in those menus. Help please! I've been spending a lot of time on this. Thanks.

To create new collections:

   Open a new tab by tapping the + icon in the Open Tabs section on the Home screen.
   Enter a keyword or URL in the address bar.
   Tap the three dots at the bottom of the screen.
   Tap Save to Collection.
   Tap Add new collection.
   Skip this step and proceed to the next step if this is your first time creating a collection since the Add new collection button will not display.
   Enter a name for the new collection in the text field that displays.
   Tap Done from your virtual keyword. 

The collection now displays within the Collections section on the Home screen.

Hello. I've just updated Firefox on my Samsung galaxy tab s5e and noticed that the old toolbar where tabs used to stay is gone. The top bar on the app now has a button that opens a tab switcher, just like the version for android phones, a design that makes sense on smaller screens but kind of hurts productivity when working on a tablet with a larger screen. Is there any way to get the interface to behave a bit like it used to before the update? Thanks!

Hello,

I got the following problem. When I shutdown my PC and let's say have 20+ Tabs open from a study session, after booting again all these tabs are opened when I stat firefox.

In many cases this may be the intended behavior, but I really do not like it. I would like that my Firefox behaves in the following manor:

At any given time, when I open my browser for the first time my default setting is shown. 

At any given time, when I open my browser, no older tabs from a session before should be opened

Thank for help in advance I am aware that this might be the stupidest question ever and I have to jump through hoops to make it happen.

Hi, because of the illness of my girlfriend I searched 4 days for options to help her. In the end I had about 40 tabs open with important informations. Then yesterday my display broke and I really need to have access to the open tabs. Where are they stored on the internal storage? Unfortunately, I hadn't activated the sync :-(

I apparently hit something unintentionally that changed the layout of tabs in my tab tray. They've always appeared as a double column of icons small enough to see, what, 6 or 8 at a time? Opened my tray a couple of hours ago to find a single column of large icons with two per screen. (Screenshot attached) What oh what did I do and how to undo? Thanks!

In English : Hello, I use several hundred tabs (don't judge me ^^). And I would like to be able to list open tabs like you can do with bookmarks and history. You can indeed filter and select in bookmarks and history. For example, I would like to filter all open tabs containing "foo", and select the ones I want to close among those. And not to do it one by one. Is it possible ? Thank you.

En Français : Bonjour, J'utilise plusieurs centaines d'onglets (ne me jugez pas ^^). Et j'aimerais pouvoir lister les onglets ouverts comme on peut le faire avec les marque-pages et l'historique. On peut en effet filtrer et sélectionner dans les marque-pages et l'historique. Par exemple, j'aimerais filtrer tous les onglets ouverts contenant "toto", et sélectionner ceux que je souhaite fermer parmi ceux-là. Et non pas de le faire un à un. Est-ce possible ? Merci.

When I start trying to open multiple tabs at once Firefox autofills the address bar with the address I was at when I hit CTRL+T. I don't know if I'm just doing it too fast, or what is going on but it's really frustrating.

For example, I'll go to reddit, while reddit is loading hit the hotkeys for a new tab, and it'll have reddit autofilled when I want it to be blank because I want to go to twitter or something. It's pretty frustrating and I wind up opening more tabs than I'd like and closing the incorrect ones. Would appreciate some assistance please.

Hello everyone,

after the most recent update for Firefox on Android, the order of the tabs have kinda changed (for the worse in my opinion). When I open a new tab, it is over the older one, which is kinda weird for me. Is there a way to change it back to the old order, where new tabs will be BELOW the older one?

Thank you all in advance.
