I'm not sure why Firefox still bothers to call tabs, "tabs". A tab was originally called that because of its similarity to a filing cabinet's physical tabs where you can see the tab markers and use your thumb to quickly select one. As far as I can see Firefox for Android no longer has tabs. There's no tab bar (and even the URL bar is auto-hidden) and to see the 'tabs' you have to drag down, then select a button and then flip your brain from expecting to see a horizontal row of tabs to a vertical list of them. Similarly, to create a new tab used to involve taping on a plus sign in the same place, right next to the other tabs in the bar. Now, to make a new one you have to redirect your attention from the top of the screen (where tabs have always beenl to a plus sign down the bottom. This smacks of just changing things for the hell of it.

So.... The big ask..... is there any way to get back to the system and layout I'm used to and that I still use without a moment's though when I use Chrome? (Which I'd still rather not do all the time...). I'd like my tabs back please.

On my Android phone I cannot type in a URL and have Firefox take me there directly. Google (or some other search engine) sees and processes everything I type. On my desktop Firefox I can type a URL into the address bar without Google seeing it. (AFAIK.)

I don't want any search engine knowing a URL I type in. I want Firefox to drop it on the Internet to be resolved by the DNS.

Is there a way to delete all saved logins and passwords in Firefox for Android at once?

I've managed to delete them all at once from Firefox for Windows 10, but for Android it seems like the only way is to delete logins one at a time and 3 taps per login.

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Firefox for Mobile needs to sync Collections too.

My wife typically trusts me to make the tech decisions in my household, and is fine with using and supporting Mozilla and Firefox. Overall, she likes the new Mobile Firefox too, as do I.

She's a typical Tab Hoarder kind of user. On her last phone, I introduced her to Collections. Much easier to use and get to than Bookmarks, easy to understand, good at helping her control the immense amount of tabs she otherwise has open. She basically fell in love with the feature.

A few days ago she got a new phone. We still have her old one, but the screen is 1/3 cracks and it no longer holds a charge well. "Well loved", for sure.

Install Firefox on new phone --> sync over her stuff --> all good... Well, wait... Where are her collections with her hundred-or-more tabs in them for various stuff?

Turns out they don't sync?

I've been helping her manually move over the tabs from the collections on her old phone to the new phone, but I feel *extremely* lucky we still have the phone. If she'd lost her phone instead, that would be quite the amount of time she'd spent getting acquainted with and using this feature just to find it doesn't save anywhere.

This was all essentially written as a real-life use-case, for the following plea:

Please, *please* add Collections to what is able to be synced with the Firefox Sync feature.

Hello everyone!

I have been stuck on Firefox version 82.1.3 on Android since 2020-11-09. Firefox 83 was released some time ago and Firefox 84 got released a couple of days ago. No matter how many restarts or refreshes I do of Google Play, the most current version shown is 82.1.3.

- Does anyone know what's going on? Is this as it should be? - If this is as it should be, why does Mozilla keep announcing new versions without informing the users that version releases on Android are lagging?

Thanks!

I have a Samsung A2 and I'm having trouble adding sites to my home screen. I am able to add YouTube.com to the home screen by going to YouTube.com, clicking the menu, then clicking Add to Home screen. I then have a saved Firefox launcher on my home screen that when clicked goes directly to YouTube.com.

However when I try to add other sites there is no option to add to the home screeen. I'm trying at the moment with Lichess.org and there's no Add to Home screen option in the Menu.

I found this post (see attached) https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1267519 which suggests going into about:config to change a setting, but when I enter about:config into the browser I just get a black screen.

These are the addresses of the two sites. http://m.youtube.com/# and https://lichess.org/. Is it not working because the Lichess site isn't a m-dot site?

What is going on here and how can I fix it?

I am logged in on both my laptop (windows 8) and android, using my email. I want to sync my tabs so that I can open the same page on my phone and my laptop. I have three tabs open on my android, I go to firefox desktop, click the three lines in the top right corner, click library, click synced tabs, there is nothing there but "view synced tabs sidebar" (which is empty), "manage devices" (when I click it opens a blank page), and "sync now" (nothing happens when I click this). In my settings, under connected services, I see both my desktop and my android device, so it is recognizing that I am logged in to both places. Somehow I managed to migrate my bookmarks from my laptop to my phone, but it doesn't update when I add anything new (should it? I can't find a 'sync bookmarks' button). If it's important, I had to sign in on my phone with my email address, as the QR code on my laptop doesn't show up, instead says "pairing unsuccessful, try again". Nothing changes when I click this. Please help, this is very frustrating and I can't find anything that will explain why this is happening or what I'm doing wrong.
