Every time I "tab out" to another app on my phone, and tab back in yo Firefox, it causes the page to reload.

I'm using a Galaxy S20+, so there is no shortage of RAM or any system specification - and this issue does not happen with Samsung Internet or Google Chrome.

Can this be fixed - else I will have to return to Samsung Internet.

It's very annoying having to redo forms etc. just because I switched back and forth between apps.

Recent development in the past couple months. Inputting text to input text form fields can often be slow, and is often scrambled.

I found a temporary fix of clearing cache. This needs to be addressed. Two separate phones. Firefox rose to awesomeness again a few versions ago, now, every update seems to make it worse. UI elements look worse to me now.

i have some custom search engines on Firefox Android 89 (settings > search > add search engine > other).

i noticed that Firefox seems to be ordering the search engines in an arbitrary order.

when i first add the searches, they appear in the order that they are added.

but after the phone is restarted (note: not the browser, the phone), the search engines are ordered in a different way.

this same order shows up in both the settings search engine list (settings > search) and also the search engine selection list (url bar > search engine)

i have observed: - it is not sorted by alphabetical by engine name - it is not sorted by alphabetical by engine url (with or without protocol prefix) - it is not sorted by order added - it is deterministic: if i delete an engine and re-add it, even if i name it something different, after a phone restart it'll still return to the same position it was before

so my questions are: 1. how exactly does Firefox sort the search engines? 2. how do i set a custom order for the search engines?

thanks!
