Hi everyone,

I have a problem (I guess) with sending tabs on android. As I understand the help-articles it is supposed to function like this: I select one or more tabs on my old device, tap on the share button, select my new device and after some seconds once I open Firefox App on the new device the tabs sent should appear.

So far the theory. I'm logged into both devices, all synced, but the expected behaviour doesn't show. All I get is a notification for every single tab received but when I open the App they are not there. They only open, when I tap on the notification, one by one. On my old device however, notifications are turned off. So as I tried to send the other way around nothing happened.

How do I fix this issue? It's most annoying. Please help.

(Oh and sent Facebook tabs open in my facebook app instead of Firefox when I tap on the notification - wth) Btw. I do have the latest versions installed. Old device is Galaxy S7 with Android 8 and new device is Galaxy S10 with Android 11.

Thanks in advance!

1. Firefox was a bit sluggish, so I closed it from Task Manager, expecting to be given the option to restore the session as usual, I wasn't, couldn't restore it from the History menu and it wasn't there in the sessionstore-backups folder either. 2. Now each tab has its own window.

In this post, the wrong solution is given to a problem and question about removing the tab mute button: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1092509

The correct solution is to change this variable: browser.tabs.showAudioMuteIcon

I hate it when a subject is closed with the wrong solution given, reminds me of reddit.

I had so many problems with it, I went through downloading different "session save" add-ons, I know what solution you guys will give me, I've done most of the posts' instructions, this is more of a complaint post.

When Windows boots up and you had Firefox open before you shut down last time, it will open anew, automatically, with your previous session, but it's on the end of the list of things that launch on startup.

Forgetting you had it on and clicking the browser again, will open a new session with the home screen instead of the previous session, then when actual session Firefox launches it's a 50/50 whether it will be in home screen as well, or actually in your previous session. Now here is the fun part. If you close the new window with just the home tab, that will now become the latest session, so your previous one will be deleted.

How to get around that? Move your home tab into your session instead of closing the window, it works 100% of the time... But can we, not start a new session if you close the home screen, or if you close just 1 tab it doesn't count as a different session. I dunno, just throwing ideas out there.

Hope this reaches those with the same issue, or people in positions to fix the issue, if anyone wants to use session saving add-ons, I took fancy to Tab Session Manager and Easy Session Manager, though not perfect, I don't advise for over 150 tabs.

I'll try to be as active on this thread as I can be, thanks for reading through! :>

There are no more borders around the tabs except the active one. It is hard to click click fast to change to another tab - special with pinned tabs with some icons blured with the theme I love. Also the theme-icons got deactivated and there is now the lower bar empty without the tabs. They went up into a new bar higher added. How can I fix that with boardred tabs located downwards and the intuitiv easier clickable icons back?

Hello My private tabs sometimes abruptly disappear when I come back to the browser, even though I do not do anything unusual. I cannot discern any predictable pattern. But when I go to the crash report section in the settings, there is no record of it, I suppose because the private navigation crashed within the browser not the app itself.

Hello, I'm using Firefox 90.1.2 on android. Whenever I open a site and hit the back button and open another site it just opens a new tab and loads the previous page on another tab for no reason, if I open several pages after getting back from previous page the browser just opens several tabs and open all the other sites I visited previously. This is really annoying, please fix this issue. Thank you.

Recently there was a change in the way bookmarks are displayed. If I go into Manage Bookmarks they are sorted in the order I want them to be shown, but the bookmarks offered to me appear to be random, or possibly most recently used. That is totally useless when I want to find a particular bookmark.

How do I get Firefox to display bookmarks in the order I have them in the Manage Bookmarks tab? Alternately is there a way I can get the manage bookmarks window to show up as a column on the left or right of my desktop? That would allow me to easily find a bookmark, and also to add a bookmark in the correct location to assist me in finding it later.

Firefox over the past couple years has proven inconsistent. For days or weeks it will display the open tabs I intentionally left open, then without warning, without asking me, without my permission it closes them and provides no means of restoring them. As a result, I have discontinued all use of Firefox because the problem has been known for years yet continues.

So, if I want to open a tab that exists in my current open Firefox to a new window, or a new private window(Good for accessing an alt account without logging out a main account), I have to right-click the taskbar icon for it, or the desktop icon, firefox's settings menu, or a keypress; navigate to the page, and log in.

It would be super convenient to send a tab to a new window or private window from right-clicking the desired tab, and selecting an option. Currently, (90.0..1), there is just a send to container option, which doesn't exactly accomplish what I am looking for.

This is purely QoL, but it would speed things up quite a bit.

There is a large info box popping up in the bottom of the screen when I close tabs. I usually press 'x' and close tabs starting with the last one but this info box that says 'tab closed' and has an undo button on it, is covering a big portion of the last tab including it's 'x' button. It is even larger in landscape mode. This is very annoying and if I want to close another tab I'd have to wait for it to disappear or try to press around it. It's a useful feature but could the experience be made more better?

Hello.

Cycling through unpinned tabs is easy, Ctrl+Tab does the job.... But what about pinned tabs?

People are more likely to have more pinned tabs open and saved to their browser than unpinned tabs, like myself, as surely, that is the point of pinned tabs.

So I cannot for the life of me understand why I can't find a keyboard shortcut to cycle through these!! Is it really possible for developers to overlook this simple but extremely useful and effective shortcut?!

Can anyone help?

Mike.

I had to reinstall Windows because of a blue screen of death I couldn't fix. My firefox and everything else was gone. I want to restore my Firefox tabs. I've clicked on history, manage history, then Import and Backup, then Restore, and then I tried choosing the file from before I had to reinstall, but when I click on that file and click open, I get the message, this will replace all of your current bookmarks with the backup. Are you sure? I click ok, but nothing happens. These are the files in the sessionstore-backups folder: previous.jsonlz4 recovery.baklz4 upgrade.jsonlz4-20210504152106 upgrade.jsonlz4-20210527174632 upgrade.jsonlz4-20210622155641
