In the previous version of Firefox on my phone a long press on the back button showed a list of pages I had visited akin to the dropdown on desktop Firefox. This functionality seems to have disappeared from this new version, are there any plans to bring it back? There are still many sites out there that are not following a single-page approach to web design.

I tend to keep a lot of tabs open in Firefox. Some of them are there as reminders of things I need to do. These ones I like to move to the top of the list so I don't forget them but I can't work out how to do this in the new Firefox Preview.

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.

I would like to have in next version of Firefox a checkbox, when I click on a text field which has saved username, then I would only see saved usernames for this current website. Now I see saved usernames for all websites.

So when I click on a checkbox, the saved usernames in blue reactangle on picture below, won't be shown. I will only see usernames "From this website".

This can be useful, when there are many saved usernames for many websites.

In the past, I have bookmarked frequently used pdf's. Retrieving the bookmark always loaded the file into acrobat. Now, however, the file is loaded into the Firefox pdf reader. If I open the pdf from windows explorer it opens into acrobat. Is there a way to go from bookmark to acrobat?

Hi I've read [page] and try to apply the instructions but somehow I can't get it to autocomplete to the domain I want. These work the way I want them to for example, when I type gm it autocompletes to gmail.com; when I type y it autocompletes to youtube.com. It used to never autocomplete for gmail.com but then I used the arrow key to select gmail.com from the drop menu, and hit Enter (per the instructions on the above mentioned page) and since then it autocompletes to gmail.com. So that worked as intended. But when I type ik it autocompletes to ikea.com while I want it to autocomplete to ikea.nl. The latter does show up in the drop menu and no matter how often I use the arrow key to select it and press enter, it still keeps autocompleting in the address bar to ikea.com. Am I missing a crucial step?

Thank you

edit: I've tried deleting ikea.com with Shift Delete, but it keeps coming back after I've closed the tab/browser

After the latest update, it's no longer possible to press and hold the back-button to see a list of all pages you've been to in the current tab. Will this function come back soon?

To me, it feels like the new update (downdate?) has taken away everything I found useful with firefox, (gridded tabs; so you could see a preview of the tabs, the possibility to organize/rearrange tabs, press-and-hold "back" to see where you've been - all gone).

The problem is spotting the start of a logical grouping in many tabs open at once in a window. I arrange them in order when researching something. So, there's 20 tabs open, 4 different categories of the subject topic. There has to be a way besides a sidebar, to signify fast which group starts where. Best case scenario would be marking the 1st tab of a group with a flag, or static pop-up - a short, 15 character-limit description to signify which group it is (like '4k', '1080p', '720p', for video resolution values). 2nd-best would be a mouse-hover message, i.e. a flag or balloon to pop-up with the 15-character description. Finally, I could color-code the 1st tab of a group, or even the text .I saw some good extensions that did these - looks like Firefox disabled them with the latest browser upgrade. Are there any cross-browser or Firefox persistent apps or add-ons that will let me mark up individual tabs, with either icons, messages, or background colors?
