So, I just switched to firefox on android 10 as my default browser and I've got this bug where the suggestions remain opened even after the search is complete and it's showing the results (see screenshot). I can interact with the search but I can't see what I'm pressing for obvious reasons. I have tried clearing the cache and even reinstalling it but with no success.

Firefox focus works without any problem.

Ever since the major new version of Firefox for Android came along, I have not been able to have Firefox for Android sync bookmarks and history with my desktop sessions. The "Sync now" button still shows August 31, 2020 as the last date I synced my device, and it has remained that way since then.

Pressing the sync button shows a loading icon for a few moments, then stops and everything remains the same. I logged out for some months, but in logging back in the problem still persisted.

However, despite this problem, I've still been been able to send and recieve tabs to and from my desktop devices without any problems, so Sync is working in some regards. Regardless, Firefox for Android refusing to sync bookmarks and history is still a big problem.

I'm on android nightly 94. Some recent changes started grouping tabs in two different way, both of which have degraded my experience in the app.

The first is grouping inactive tabs, I have Firefox set to not automatically close inactive tabs but I'm still kind of paranoid Firefox is going to close them anyway. Even if it won't, then it's just hiding them from view and makes me forget about them. I would rather they got some kind of icon or label instead.

The second is the very new search term labeling. This isn't a bad idea, but in practice it's absolutely miserable. My search terms are full to the brim with typos that google gracefully handles but firefox just leaves as incoherent labels on my tabs that makes no sense. Plus I will frequently reuse an open tab for a new search, meaning the label is completely irrelevant to what's now in the tab. The worst part is that the vast majority of my tabs are in a group labelled "other", meaning this feature just poinlessly segregates a handful of tabs and pulls them all the way to the top of the list. When it does decide a tab gets a label, that also means they're no longer in recently created order, so I have no sense of static positioning in the tab list. Plus it makes the tab list way longer overall.

Attached is a screenshot exhibiting my inability to type accurately on a phone keyboard and the search labels inability to correctly match the contents of a tab.

All in all, I think these features a huge downgrade in terms of usability, I have a short term memory disorder and I know it makes things much harder on me. I would like to be able to disable them somehow, but I can't find any toggles or anything anywhere.
