OK, so I have a website that works fine on Chrome, Safari, Opera and it works also fine of Firefox. But the problem is that when it loads on firefox, for a tiny second, it loads like this https://snipboard.io/8OFki3.jpg

I tried optimizing the site, and its working great on other browsers, but firefox user experience is not what I want, any suggestions to fix this.

This is the website I am talking about: https://www.easygrader.net/

Thanks, Amir S.

This only happens on mobile. Whenever I leave the Firefox app (without closing) and reopen it, the website reloads and everything I had done beforehand is lost. This makes it impossible to use Firefox along with other apps at the same time. The same issue also occurs when I have to open another app (from Firefox) to upload a file; after selecting an image to upload, I'm back to Firefox, but the website reloads and forgets I was uploading something.

TLDR; websites reload upon leaving Firefox, without closing the application

Sometimes when i am on the tab view and click in a tab instead of going to that tab i go to a nonexistent homepage (as in it doesn't appears in tab view), i then need to go back to the tab view and click in the tab i want again to actually go there.

I notice this mostly when going from a private tab to a normal one

Is this a intencional behavior, a setting i can change, or a bug?

This problem happens on firefox nightly for android

If I am in a site such as bbc news and I back swipe it goes back to the app home screen and I can then select another shortcut or type in an address. However the bbc news homepage remains open as a tab. If I backswipe right back to the home screen I would expect it to close the tab not leave it open.

Android - random tab navigation when I close multiple tabs

On Android say I have more than 10 tabs open and I want to start closing them. I'm currently on tab A, and then I scroll up to see the rest of the taba and start closing then by either swiping or clicking the X button. After I close 3 or more, Firefox will randomly navigate to another tab.

I would expect for Firefox to stay on the tab A which is the one I has open and never closed, instead of jumping to other tabs at random.

Is there any way to extend the visibility of the pop-up switch notification which reads "New tab opened Switch"? I mean another half second or two?

I'm talking about the momentary button on the bottom of the screen which provides a way to immediately switch over to the newly opened tab.

I usually don't switch, but I'm usually too slow to click when I DO want to switch.

D told me to ask support here.

my Browser was running slow with having hundreds of tabs open (mostly in inactive section), especially after mobile browser update.

Then I just open Firefox, and everything is Gone.

I go download Firefox on my desktop to attempt to backup up any copy of open tabs.

there are none.

luckily I have my history from my mobile saved on to my desktop.

but from what I read and my understanding, there is no way to backup Firefox history, only bookmarks.

what am I suppose to do? any fix? any recovery to access open tabs? or backup history?

(Note; I have tabs on my mobile browser to Never delete tabs. this glitch is Firefox's problem. I probably would've backed up my tabs if it was still working to fix the slowness issue.)

Hi, hope someone can help! When I close tabs on my Android (not all tabs but usually a few) when I open the app later I find the tabs have returned, is there anyway to make the tabs stay closed? Sometimes I'll close a few then find them randomly back next time I use Firefox. I've been using Firefox on Android for a long time and this has only just started happening. My laptop is not physically switched on so it is not syncing to that. Thanks in advance!

I love using firefox on android because of its add-ons support and firefox acount but the ram management seems to be awfully bad compared to other chromium based browsers, even if left for 20 minutes tabs refresh[irrespective of the number of tabs] and it happens way too often that now it is annoying. I do not want to switch browsers because i like using my FF account and sync feature but this annoyance is really getting to my head. Help is hugely appreciated!!!

Hi!

Version: FF Android 101.2.0 (plus other version stuff I can provide if needed), Android 12

Just thought I'd report this because it appears to be a consistent, reasonably long-standing issue (months) on a popular news site. Or is it "just me"?

Website: https://alightmotionapk.co/mod/

Expected behaviour: I am able to open links and download files on this website as backround tabs and continue browsing.

Actual behaviour: 1. After a couple are opened, Firefox for Android hangs for very close to 30 seconds then does a deep redraw/repaint of all tabs and continues to function until I next try to open another background tab from that website. 2. During the hang tab interface continues to redraw, but the pages are not repainted and no taps events work. 3. At the end of this hang time, the pages appear to redraw from scratch and the context pop-up for the third long-press appears on top of whichever tab I was looking at.

It is 100% repro for me -- long-press fails when attempting to open the 3rd background tab, but repaint failure occurs earlier. There is something toxic happening.

Curiously, when I next view my Android Home screen, there is some sort deep refresh/repaint, as if it has been swapped-out or GC'd etc.

e.g. Is there some massive memory blow-out happening?

Context/workarounds: 1. I have tried clearing all browsing data and using a guess account on the phone. 2. I have no addons installed. 3. Neither Chrome nor FF Desktop exhibit this behavior. This is FF Android specific

Thanks!

After updating to the latest version, I am not able have more than one tab open. When I try to open a new tab or switch between open tabs, the browser starts rapidly switching the original tab and new tab not allowing you to use either. It only stops when all but one tab is closed. This occasionally happened in the old version but only when the original tab hadn't completely loaded before opening the new tab. The icons in the address bar (reader view etc.) are also constantly flashing regardless of how many tabs are open. Any fixes?
