Hello I am German and not used to write in english. I use Firefox on my Xperia device. Within the last Update I got the new function to collect the tabs. I created several collections and named them. After I put in the tabs and deleted them in the list. So they were only in the collections. Today I wanted to use one Tab out of the collection. But the whole collection Was not any more there, same with 2 Others! Where are these collections and the tabs now? I did not delete them and I need them.

Where are they and how can I use them again?

Kind regards

Mischa

Automatically received the latest major firefox update on my Samsung galaxy tab s3. I don't know what Mozilla did to this release but I can't find any functions to do basic browser controls like going back to the previous page, going to the next page, or refreshing a page. I really love firefox but it's kind of unusable without these controls. I'm going to have to use chrome which I'd prefer not to do until this is fixed. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Since an update a few weeks ago, every time I enter an address or tap one of my most visited sites, instead of continuing on from the previous site, it opens a new tab.

I've scoured the settings but can't find anything. Surely this is a bug? I end up with 10 tabs within minutes. Can't understand what the purpose of this change is

Hello,

Is there a way to refresh a page on Firefox for Android by dragging down the viewport?

I use it all the time on Opera for Android and it's really helpful.

Wondering if you can enable that option or where to request that feature for a new version of the browser.

Thank you!

I am unable to save images from a Google images search. This has been an ongoing issues for many months now, possibly closure to 1 year now. Previously, I was able to search in google images, click the image to enlarge, long press and have an option to save that image. Now, I search the image and have no way to save it. Long press and nothing happens, or it highlights the words below the image. No options come up at all. I can save the image if I switch to desktop view or if I click the images link and go to the source location of the image and save from that website. I simply cannot save from Google images. It's extremely frustrating. Have uninstalled and reinstalled and updated during this time. No current updates available. Firefox Android Version 93.2.0

How to stop Firefox mobile form refreshing every time I leave the app and come back?

How do I stop Firefox mobile from refreshing every time I leave the app and come back? This wouldn't be such a big issue expect for the fact that I use bitwarden as my password manager. So every time I want to enter my password bitwarden leaves Firefox so I can unlock my vault. Then when I re-enter Firefox Bitwarden is unable to fill in the username and password cause the page is refreshing. Sometimes it even takes me out of the password page because the login screen for the site is a pop-up. Not a separate window.

This also becomes super annoying when filling out any forms and I need to grab info from another app cause a lot of time on form pages when you refresh the page the form gets cleared. It's at it's worst if I have to leave Firefox to copy and paste multiple items because then I copy one item, re enter Firefox paste, leave Firefox to copy the next item, re enter Firefox and the thing I pasted before is gone because the page refreshed! STOP REFRESHING THE PAGE EVERY TIME I LEAVE AND RENTER THE APP!!! It doesn't matter if I leave for mear seconds or used the recent app section to quickly switch between Firefox and another app.

I am on a Samsung Galaxy S20 FE.

I've Googled this a few different ways and the results don't seem to be up to date, because I'm not seeing what I should be.

I'm using Firefox on Android, and I want to download a page to view offline, but can't see how. Google results tell me to go to the menu to find the option, which must refer to the three dots in the top right, but it's not there. I'm attaching a pic of what mine looks like for reference.

Thanks in advance for the help.

Hello everybody, I use Firefox for some days now, but I'm a little annoyed with the back button / back gesture usage with tabs. On all browsers I already tried, pressing back button finally close the tab after going back to the first website opened. But with Firefox, it only go to home and let the website open without closing taba. So we have to often close manually opened tabs. Is there a way to change that please ? Sorry for my bad english, I hope it's clear.

Thanks in advance.
