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!

In v.96.2.0, when a new tab is opened (either with the "+" or menu "new tab"), I do get a new tab - but in this version I no longer get the 3 vertical dots beside the address bar to allow me to, for instance, access my bookmarks or history. My choice is limited to the bookmarks already on the homepage. This was not the case with previous versions.

If, after I create the new tab, I do select one of the homepage bookmarks - say, Google search - the 3 vertical dots reappear and Incan get at my bookmarks ... but now I've got an unwanted extra tab open.

Weird.

Why is login information prefilling in all sites except Patreon.com?

Until today, whenever I used Firefox on Android to access sites requiring login, the login credentials always prefilled. While that might be obsolete technology, I liked it.

Now, Firefox for android has been upgraded, enhancing the system by continuing to prefill login credentials, except www.patreon.com

I realize this is ingenius, but the benefit is something I have been unable to figure out, which is why I am here instead of sleeping.

The links at the start of this quetion lead to screen shots from Android, which I could not upload from Android, but I was able to hack them into this question by sending the android screen shots to a computer, from which I was able to upload the pictures and thereby complete my hack, by linking to tghe uploaded files.

I have reason to believe the images linked above might possibly provide clarification of the nature of my problem, in the event you look at them.

Thank you for any assistance you can provide.

p.s. Regarding the version of Firefox I am running, I followed instructions for checking for updates on android firefox. The way it works is it says there are no updates but it does not say what version I have. That is an excellent way to minimize exposure to end users what version they are running. It just makes me wonder why you ask what version I am running, since that information is not available so far as I know.

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.
