On my OnePlus One Firefox display a bit like the desktop app: Tabs across the top, back/forward buttons next to the address bar.

I just upgraded to a OnePlus 6 and the UI is totally different. I actually like the desktop-like UI. How do I toggle between the two interfaces?

Screenshots attached.

Am I just being dumb or is it not yet implemented?

Automatic sync not working on Firefox Android?

I've noticed my open tabs do not sync automatically like it does when I move from desktop to my Android device. Example scenario to explain this better:

I'm on my desktop Firefox with several open tabs. Then I pick up my Android device (4.2 Jelly Bean) and open Firefox Android, and I go to open new tab and chose the "Sync" menu, unfortunately the tabs it shows from my desktop device are not up to date at all.

In fact the only way I've found to sync up these tabs is to go on my Android device under Sync -> Firefox Sync -> Menu Button -> Sync Now. Then my tabs update perfect, but shouldn't this just happen automatically, or at least from a "Sync Now" button right in Firefox Android? Am I completely missing something obvious?

Thanks!!

Can I use the Firefox tablet UI on my phone? (i.e. individual tabs visible)

Hi,

I use Firefox for Android on my Nexus 7 (2013) tablet and my Nexus 6 phone. Since these devices are nearly the same size, I would like to get the tablet interface (which I prefer) on my phone as well, so that I don't have to hit a button to see my open tabs. Is there any way to do this? Anything I can change in about:config, or install a different APK, or anything like that? I love that Firefox for Android is more customizable than Chrome, so I'm hoping for just a bit more of that.

Thanks!

When you press the number in the upper right hand corner, you're shown a gray screen with 3 options at the top - i understand the mask for private browsing, the sync icon for syncing, but why the bell icon?

Thanks for any illumination you can provide!
