Previous version of Firefox beta for Android I was able to go to the list of browser tabs, press and hold a tab to then drag the tab to change its position in the list of open tabs. This feature seems to have either disappeared (if so, a reason for me to delete Firefox Preview and switch to a new browser) or it's still possible but is completely unclear how to do it now.

Just wanted to say it works great. But in future updates an option to have all bookmarks on home screen and remove collections from home screen as collections are annoying, seems like a useless option when bookmarks are more streamlined. Also in the old version the way the open tabs were shown was more streamlined than the slide up window that shows open tabs.

I saved bookmarks in a file ; Firefox says go to start menu and type in link shown in Firefox 's how to recover your bookmarks but my start menu does not have a search box or place where I could do that. Please tell me how to get the search box I need. My Start button only has the programs I use use above the Start button.

I cannot use email -- too old to learn

HDD was failing in my other computer. Put in a new HDD and transferred bookmarks (FFox. 16.++ on both) but don't remember how to transfer my saved passwords. Some folks helped me with this when I rebuilt this PC (the one I am using to send this info), and I remember most of the path and method but not well enough to attempt it without some guidance. The other PC is an ASUS G50VT-X5 laptop.

Firefox website shortcut icons on my desktop now look like the first choice one sees when right clicking a shortcut icon , then left clicking "properties", and then clicking " change icon" -- they should look like a white square with the firefox logo in the center instead of a white square with a little box containing 3 tiny symbols.

I'm running XP Pro SP3

How do I get Firefox to check add-on compatibility first, then ask me if I want to continue the Firefox update? The update process currently only tells me that an add-on has been disable after applying the Firefox update. The Options > Advanced > Update tab switch, "Warn me if this will disable any of my add-ons", does not seem to work.
