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 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.

I like Firefox Preview and would like to switch over to it on my Android device but I cannot get bookmarklets to run.

The main one I use on the 'normal' Firefox on Android is Zotero (https://www.zotero.org/download/bookmarklet), but it would also be good to be able to run Hypothesis (https://web.hypothes.is/help/installing-the-bookmarklet/).

Is this functionality there but I've missed it? Is it planned to add this later?

Thanks, Richard

Multiple Firefox Previews in Send To menus

On my Android phone I currently have Firefox Preview Nightly, Firefox Beta (which just today updated to the new Preview-type) and current (non-Preview-type) Firefox installed. I did previously have Firefox Preview installed too, which I had occasion to uninstall/reinstall once or maybe twice before finally uninstalling it.

In the Send To section of the Share menu in any of my current Firefox apps, and even in the Send Tab To Device menu on my laptop Firefox, I have FOUR Firefox Previews - when I don't have Firefox Preview installed at all - alongside the correct one Firefox Preview Nightly, one Firefox Beta, one Android Firefox and the one desktop Firefox.

Does any one know how I can get rid of these four extraneous Firefox Preview Send To targets? Happy to hand edit e.g. profile files if necessary if I know where in what file(s).
