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.

So just saw this was released, looking forward to seeing new features for my favorite web browser on Android. However, I'm wondering if/when Add Ons will be coming to the Preview, as I use uBlock Origin and Privacy Badger, as I like enhanced privacy/anti-tracking above and beyond what Mozilla already has built-in.

I can turn on sync between Firefox Preview and Firefox Desktop. Bookmarks and History works great. But I use a lot the Android's "Share" to send links to my Firefox Desktop and "Send tab to Device" to send links back to the phone, and now these aren't working. I've uninstalled Firefox for Android, cleaned my Devices list and re-signed/synced multiple times using both the user pwd and the QR scan.

Why does Preview lack clear history as a first-class operation, and optionally on Quit like the other Firefoxes?

In both Firefox for Android and Firefox Nightly, there is dedicated UI for clearing the history, and an option in the preferences to enable clearing history on invocation… (read more)

In both Firefox for Android and Firefox Nightly, there is dedicated UI for clearing the history, and an option in the preferences to enable clearing history on invocations of Quit

Preview buries this functionality in the deep menus, and makes it a very tap-heavy and latent operation.

Why was this feature omitted?

I read some information on this page and I want to look up with some other things, but I will comeback , instead of use the same tab and backward don't know how many times to the original page, most people open a new tab.

I would like to see after I type some keywords at address bar, I can long press / swipe search suggestions and open it in a new tab without ask what to do.

Or just add 'new tab' in action bar. If there's no space, please replace 'share' with 'new tab', 'new tab' is much more frequently used I think.
