Please either revert back to the normal behavior or give us the option to disable open new home page tab on close or after two hours.

This absolutely wrecks my workflow to the point where I am ready to upend my workflow investment in Firefox and move to a overall worse browser just to fix this issue.

Please make this right!

Update to iOS15 followed by Firefox app crashes

After update to iOS 15 this week, my previously rock-solid FF app (on auto-updates) is now crashing repeatedly on switching to the app or opening the app. I keep 6-8 tabs open for quick access which are not full of video, music, or animations. IPhone 12 mini has plenty of storage.

Quick reference between other tasks is not quick when switching to or opening FF brings up the “this is embarrassing” message and then I have to wait for tabs to reload.

Have not updated iPad yet.

Firefox Daylight 34.0 (4920) on iPad Air (4th gen) iPadOS 14.6 Cannot close tabs by touching x in the tab header. This applies only to tabs opened after startup. Tabs opened by browser at startup, e.g. to resume session, can be closed normally. This is new with the latest FF update. Thanks for any help.

I realize that this may seem trivial, but, while I don’t mind the idea of a home button being accessible on the toolbar, surely it could have been placed in a less inconvenient place. Every time I go to refresh the page I end up on my home page instead. On my desktop, I purposely have the page forward, page back and page refresh separated from my home button. And my home button and bookmark button separated from everything else so as to not inadvertently click on those buttons when I meant to click something else or vice versa. So, while having a home button on the toolbar may seem like a nifty, handy idea, not so if it costs moving the page refresh button from it’s more common placement to an obscure part of the header bar where you are more likely to end up on that pinned tab page or in reader view when trying to refresh. Please put the page refresh back where it was.

Every time I open the app, it starts a new window/tab in lieu of opening to the last window/tab used. This is something that has started since the last update to version 37. Is there a way to disable this?

Does clean start close tabs? (Firefox for iOS)

The release notes for the latest update for Firefox for iOS mention "clean start", stating that Firefox will start on your home page every time you reopen the browser after a couple of hours to avoid being distracted by the tabs of your last session.

The first thing I want to know is whether this clean start means (1) that all previously open tabs will be closed, or (2) that a new tab will open to the home page IN ADDITION to the previous tabs.

Is there an option to turn off this clean start behavior?

(I do want to keep my open tabs; it's why I leave some open. I close tabs I don't want any more. I can use history, but I hope I don't have to, because I don't want to have to scroll through history and remember what I wanted to keep every time I don't use the browser for some hours -- especially after every night's sleep! If this functionality closes tabs, then I don't want to upgrade. If it's optional, that's fine, and good for those who want it.)

I tried sending a tab from desktop FF to iOS, but absolutely nothing happens on my iOS Firefox. When I try sending the tab in other direction (from iOS to desktop), iOS Firefox shows blue 'Tab sent' bar, but nothing opens on desktop.

Both devices are signed into a same account, syncing other stuff (bookmarks etc.) seems to work, all apps are updated.

Any idea what's wrong? Thank you!

Is there a way of turning off the "start on homepage"? It claims it will only happen after a hour or so but it's almost every time. Surely there must be an option to turn this very annoying feature off.
