Hello, I have a Galaxy Tab S6 tablet and before the recent update tabs was opening above the address bar. But after the update all tabs are opening under that square icon with number, like on the small mobile phone. The whole UI is in this mobile mode, like if it fails to recognize my device as a tablet. Is there anything I could try to fix that? I read some discusions about firefox failing to switch to tablet mode but it used about:config which doesn't seem to even work on the newest firefox.

When you try to scroll down when selecting text and get closer to the end of the page you suddenly get teleported up to the middle of the website. To describe the process. I want to copy part of this page content. I press down on the screen and get one word selected. Then I use the blue bubble to drag down the page. As I do this and get close to the end I get teleported up and can never then select the last part..

I have a basic html index page being served by Ubuntu/Apache at `https://localhost/test.html`. I have `browser.enabled.ssb` set to `true` in about config.

When I open a regular browser window (Firefox 78.0.2) I can navigate to, and load `https://localhost/test.html` no problem but when I run `firefox --profile /home/ubuntu/.mozilla/firefox/a5pwja44.default-release --ssb https://localhost/test.html` I get a connection error. (This is the same profile I'm using when I open a new browser window).

Anybody know why this doesn't work or how to fix?

Hello. I am using the newest google play version of the firefox browser from Hungary. With the new update a lot of things have changed, i like them. But i have a problem. Every time, when i choose a new bookmark from the menu, the app opens a new tab. Because of this, it could happen that i have 6-7 or more opened tabs, which i have to close one by one. When i used the previous versions, the app opened only one tab, this feature wasnt present. Is this a bug or a new feature? If its a feature, how can i turn it off?

I'm using Firefox on Android and after the latest update I have a few issues... Now I'm running 79.0.2 (Build #2015755339).

- When I press the adress bar a completely white page appears (see attached image). Previously my bookmarks used to show up. Why did you remove that feature? - When I long-press a link to, for example, open it in a new tab, the link-description was shown as header for the pop up menu. Now the shortened and often cryptical link is shown instead. Why? - When opening links pointing to anchors in pages (for example first unread message in a forum thread) the browser jumps to the bottom of the page. I dont know if this is due to removed ads, but it worked before the last update.

Hi. In the previous version you could always get to the start page by clicking in the address bar one time. In the new one, you have to push backstep several times to get there. It is through the start page that you navigate ! When you click in the address bar in the new version, you are forced to search on google instead. It says..thry google this time.. This is very annoying. As i said its through the startpage you want to navigate. Regards Olle

Because of the location where I live, most of google services are blocked on the internet. Yesterday I wanted to download a device driver from www.m-audio.com but the driver's page stopped loading. I noticed a message at the bottom left of the Firefox window saying "waiting for www.google.com" or something similar. Because of that wait, I could open the page only after 4 tries and waiting way too much time. Can I filter page contents from google so Firefox skips them?

I run Firefox with multiple profiles, as there are several people that use this computer. I start firefox with -p <profilename> -no-remote.

This all works fine except if I'm in try to open a link from for instance in an email, I click on the link and it opens the profile manager. If I select a profile that already has an open window I get an error message stating

"Firefox cannot use the profile "Rick" because it is in use. To continue, close the running instance of Firefox or choose a different profile."

Is there anyway to have it open the link in a new tab of an already running profile, rather then having to close the profile and then click the link.

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
