I'm totally amazed to find that the very first and natural way of refreshing contents... doesn't exist on Firefox.

As a replacement you need to find the refresh option in the "3-dots" menu. Ergonomy ? What's this place again ?

I really don't understand how such feature is just not there. It should be one of the most obvious gesture to implement.

Is this possible to make it happens ?

Thx.

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.

Hi, I'm trying to install a certificate to use adguard with Firefox for Android (a .crt file) , but it will not work. It always says that it failed to install. Attached is a screenshot of what happens when I try to use adguard with Firefox for Android.

Adguard has 2 workarounds for this. However, one involves about:config, which the new Firefox for Android does not have, and the other workaround requires ADB. See link below:

For some reason every time I open FF on Android the default mode is now "private" (incognito). Not exactly a problem but under these circumstances my notification shade always has "close all private tabs", which I pretty much never want to do.

Pixel2XL running Android 11, this behavior only stated 2 or 3 days ago.

Thanks in advance!

I'm not sure where to post this since it isn't a question.

I normally keep a lot of tabs open on mobile Firefox, and recently updated to a new version which changed the design of the browser drastically. One thing it changed is the open tab viewer, which now opens from a window at the bottom of the screen. The problem is that when you start to scroll your finger down (so that you can view older tabs higher up) it pulls the whole tab viewer down and away. It is so annoying to use and has no real way to open scroll immediately.

The closest thing I have found to a solution is opening the tab viewer, scrolling up (so the page goes down) so it bumps against the bottom of the page, then scroll down only while the scroll is visible. An easy solution for this is to make it require 2 fingers to close the tab viewer while over the tabs, or 1 finger when on the notch at the top.

I dont get why you removed the ability to see the history of the window I'm in, by using the back or forward arrows. It made it very convenient to go back to where I had started from or to see what do you original topic was that I had started the window for. Why would you remove this excellent feature?

On my Windows laptop, the latest Firefox doesn't work right with the Wi-Fi login page for Hughes Internet at my local Denny's Restaurants. I have had to make Chrome the default browser so that I can get logged in and then I have to switch to Firefox. If you need a specific URL, contact me at stuff hat Phil Wells daught Net

This third comment may not be Firefox asphalt, but I need to ask - why does Dashlane, V password manager I use, not work with Firefox for Android? It works for other versions of Firefox and it works for Chrome on Android. Is that their problem or yours?

lastly, why is there not a simple email address that I can write to with questions It's not like I do very often, but being able to send a question or even an observation that might be helpful to you, to support at firefox.com, or whatever, would be easier for us users and would mean that we could keep a copy of the message that we've sent.

An and, did you know that with, at least Firefox for Android, this form won't let the user put the cursor in the middle of the text to add or delete something? If I put the cursor in the middle of the text someplace and I hit delete where I start typing, the action wants up occurring at the very end Of the message. Something's very wrong.

I, at one time, could pin a page to the new tabs screen where it would pin an icon that I could click on and immediately access that web page. I want to pin additional pages to that screen but I don't know how. I can't remember what I did to do it. I've attached a snippet of a screenshot circling the pins to give more insight into what I'm referring to.

If there are limitations or requirements, I would appreciate anyone advising of what they are. If you can guide me to the appropriate information or provide the information, any help would be appreciated!

Hello, in the last few days I have been seeing a weird issue when browsing webpages on Firefox for Android. Horizontal bars, alternately in white, black or grey, obscure small parts of the page, usually disappearing after a short while. This seems to happen particularly often when I'm highlighting text on the webpage.

This hadn't happened before.

Images are added for reference.
