How to have open tabs presented as a list, rather than a bunch of thumbnails?

Hi,

I've just had to restore my Pixel 4 from a Google backup after a hardware fault. When I go to the screen to open a new blank tab, Firefox has reverted to displaying thumbnails for all the existing tabs. I like to keep quite a few tabs open, so I had changed a setting so that Firefox displayed a list of already open tabs, rather than showing them as a series of thumbnails. Unfortunately, as a result of having to re-install Firefox, I've lost that particular change.

Can someone remind me what I have to change to get back to the list display. I had it working just fine, but I cannot remember how I did it, and I can't even find the solution after a fair bit of Googling.  :-(

Thanks,

Mike

My Galaxy S10e only displays two or three days' worth of browsing history. I can find no setting either on my phone or in Firefox related to browsing history, although I can see how to delete history. I don't want to delete my history, instead I want access to it. Is my browsing history being deleted or can I just not see it? What do I do?

Look, all I wanted to do was change my primary email address to my gmail account, when I moved. This should have taken what?, two-three minutes!

It's been over a month fighting with the blasted thing, so I don't remember everything I originally did.

But at the time, I successfully changed the email on my cell phone & laptop. But 'something' hiccupped & went wrong, & it was not changed on my tablet.

Firefox eventually locked me out of my account after repeated attempts to log in. I recall asking for the six digit verification code, only to be told when I entered it, that it was incorrect, so got another, and another, repeatedly, each time being told the code was incorrect! Something like nine-ten times, I believe. I've literally spent hours & days at this, looking for a solution, to no avail.

When I tried to log into sync on the tablet today, Memorial Day, my old email address STILL shows up, and the snarkty thing just tells me I need to use my primary email address, & won't let me in. when I look at my accounts settings on another device, everything looks hunky dory! Yet my tablet still tells me, every day, that it hasn't been synced for "X" many days. Argh!

Worse, in order to post this request for help, on the same tablet, Firefox asked me to log in, DID show my primary email address, and logged me right on in, OPEN SESAME!

I was so annoyed & seriously ticked at this, it just felt like the Firefox program had just extended a virtual, certain single digit, in my general direction! If I can"t get this fixed soon, I'm going to remove sync, if I have pull it out by the roots!

H-E-L-P !!!

Firefox always freezes when i go to this site stocktwitz/earnings and i was forced to uninstall the app in my phone who meant i lost many of my bookmarks in the app. Why is firefox always so clumsy to handle many sites who can very often freeze this browser, Google Chrome don't have the same problem. Also not long ago i was using my netbank and there was a question there with a box who was important to mark so i could send money but that text wasn't seen in firefox, i saw it in all other browsers. You have a major problem

Firefox Is Automatically Dowloadimg Files But I Don't Want It To!

Hi.

I've tried searching for the answer to this problem for hours but everything's telling me how to make Firefox download things automatically but I want to stop it doing that.

I've always had my 'phone (Samsung S9+) set to ask me every time how I want to open files when I tap on them. However, this afternoon, when I tapped on a pdf link and it popped up to ask if I wanted to download the document or simply view it (in Google Viewer, I think it was), download was already highlighted and I accidentally (and very stupidly) tapped 'Always'.

Now, every time I tap on a pdf link in Firefox, my 'phone is automatically downloading the file, instead of offering me the option to simply view it without downloading it, which is what I want to do.

I've tried deleting cache files, uninstalling and reinstalling Acrobat Reader (in case it forced something to give me options again) and if I was using the Windows version of Firefox, the solution appears to be no more than a couple of clicks away. However, that doesn't seem to be the case in Firefox on my Android 'phone!

Please could someone help because I don't want to waste any more of my life searching for the solution to a single errant finger tap!

Hello, I am an avid user of Firefox Preview Nightly for Developers on Android and have used it for many months now. Recently for about the past month I have had constant crashes every single time the app is opened(usually through the Google app), that never used to happen. I understand the times where it happens for a day or two since it's a Nightly beta build, but this particular issue has never been patched. What can I do to help you get the information you need to fix this, and if that is no an option, then what can I do to better understand the cause of this? I am a software developer so I am happy to do any testing or send any logs I can, I am using a Samsung Galaxy S20 Ultra with the latest software version and using version "Nightly 200524 06:01"

I upgraded my phone from the Samsung Galaxy S7 to the S10e.

I have my desktop and laptop set up to sync Firefox and both are running the most current versions.

My s7 also was set to sync and was working just fine.

I downloaded the most version of Firefox for Android on to the S10e. I've been successful at connecting the device to my account (it shows in the list of devices).

However, it is unwilling to actually synchronize. When I go to accounts, it says "sync: never" and the categories to be synced are grayed out (bookmarks, history, etc).

I've uninstalled/reinstalled, I've restarted the device, I've clicked sync in the laptop version.

I don't know what else I am missing?

Firefox Browser 68.8.1 on the S10e Firefox 76.0.1 on the Apple MacBook Pro (I don't know the version on my PC desktop, but pretty sure it's up to date)

Firefox for Android is constantly messing up cookies and signing me out of all my accounts.

I'm not using an ad blocker.

I am not using the Do Not Track feature.

I'm using Firefox from one location, my home.

And still, I have to sign back into my accounts over and over and over each hour.

Many websites don't work at all. They'll complain that cookies are unavailable. They'll 500 and infinite redirect and land on blank pages.

What's wrong with my Firefox on Android 10???
