Any else seeing this lately?

1. **Navigation Issues**: Firefox fails to correctly navigate forwards or backwards through browser history. It often does not load the intended previous page, skips pages, or refuses to load a page entirely, requiring the user to close all tabs and manually re-enter the URL.

2. **Loading Issues with External Links**: When opening links from external applications (e.g., email clients), Firefox frequently fails to load the expected webpage. Sometimes, it does not load any page, or it loads to a blank or the home page despite the URL being visible and highlighted in the address bar.

I'm having the same problem as this guy.

I have a large number of open tabs in Firefox on my iPhone, a mixture of old and very old. I've been trying to go through the tabs and deal with them -- in some sense they are all todo items that I left open at least semi-deliberately.

If I tap on a thumbnail to load a tab, Firefox instead loads a blank page. If I tap the address bar after that, Firefox loads the new tab page, not the site corresponding to the tab that I selected. If I tap and hold a tab's thumbnail, Firefox crashes.

It was the case temporarily (possibly a bug) that some of these tabs would place a TLS failure icon in the left of the address bar when selected, while the blank page was displayed. Tapping on that would display the tab title, but not the tab URL. No longer is that TLS failure icon ever visible.

My tabs keep crashing and every time I reopen Firefox I have to reclick all tabs, public and private. Last week, I had to delete the app because nothing worked. But since I reinstalled it, I have had to constantly reclick all tabs both public and private at least 5 times a day because it disappears.

Frustration with Tab Behavior in Firefox iOS App

Dear Firefox Team,

Whenever I have multiple tabs open in the Firefox iOS app and then exit the app to use a different one, I’ve noticed that all my tabs close. Thankfully, I don’t lose the webpages I was browsing or my browsing history, but it’s quite frustrating to have to go to the tabs section of the app and reopen them manually every single time I switch between apps.

I believe that this behavior could be improved to enhance the overall user experience. It would be fantastic if the Firefox iOS app could retain the open tabs, similar to how other browsers on iOS handle this situation. This would save users valuable time and provide a smoother transition between apps, which is especially important in today’s fast-paced digital environment.

I wanted to bring this issue to your attention in the hopes that it could be considered for a future update to the Firefox iOS app. I believe that making this adjustment would make Firefox even more user-friendly and help retain users who value a seamless mobile browsing experience.
