I, at one time, could pin a page to the new tabs screen where it would pin an icon that I could click on and immediately access that web page. I want to pin additional pages to that screen but I don't know how. I can't remember what I did to do it. I've attached a snippet of a screenshot circling the pins to give more insight into what I'm referring to.

If there are limitations or requirements, I would appreciate anyone advising of what they are. If you can guide me to the appropriate information or provide the information, any help would be appreciated!

When switching tabs, Firefox allows you two behaviours: Recent Order or Tab Order but you have to choose between them. This is a trick to have THE TWO BEHAVIOURS TOGETHER Catch: AutoHotkey is required.

In Firefox Options/Preferences -> General -> Tabs" mark enable recent order (ticked) Then compile the next script in Autohotkey and keep it running.


  1. if WinActive("ahk_exe firefox.exe")

^Q::Send, ^{TAB} ^Tab::Send, ^{PGDN} +^Tab::Send, ^{PGUP}

  1. if

Now with Ctrl+Tab and Ctrl+Shift+Tab you move right and left between Tabs and with Ctrl+Q you move to last viewed Tab. I choose Q because is next to Tab but you can change it in the second line of the script. Cheers!

I feel ridiculous but I have always set FireFox to open a new window when I clicked on a link. For some reason it stopped doing that today. It just follows the link in the existing window. I cannot find the option to get the old action. Searches bring up methods from many obsolete versions. Even this site brings up over 2800 hits but I can't find the one I need.

If you download a PDF file in the current Firefox beta on Android, the options that come up for opening the PDF are not the correct ones for a .pdf file.

None of the suggested apps can open PDFs and therefore you can't open the downloaded file from Firefox. I have tested this with chrome and do not have the same problem.

Screenshot shows apps suggested for opening PDF from Firefox, missing are the correct ones, Google Drive PDF viewer and OneDrive PDF viewer.

Today I searched Firefox for the answer to a puzzle on the game Kami2. A website claiming to have the answer, rerouted me to an awful porn page, which opened up two more extremely graphic porn pages with ads. I copied the link ( https://appclarify.com/kami-2/ ) but I searched all through my settings and several pages on the forums, to no avail; is it actually possible to report fake websites to Firefox? If it's not, I'll likely delete the app, since I don't want this hijacking of my tablet, again. If it is possible, can you make it more easily accessible?

Recently Firefox has not been responding to my touches when I'm browsing on the internet. I have to tap 10 to 20 times before it will register that I have touched an element on the web page. This happens in no other apps, and has been going on for about a month now. I love the recent updates but this has broken the app for me, almost makes it unusable.

OnePlus 7 pro. Latest playstore version of app.

Because of the location where I live, most of google services are blocked on the internet. Yesterday I wanted to download a device driver from www.m-audio.com but the driver's page stopped loading. I noticed a message at the bottom left of the Firefox window saying "waiting for www.google.com" or something similar. Because of that wait, I could open the page only after 4 tries and waiting way too much time. Can I filter page contents from google so Firefox skips them?
