One reason I have always used Firefox on my phone is that I HATE tabs staying open. It worked great for me to swipe away Firefox, and opening it again I could click my Shopping List, my Canvas for school, my image backup...everything I wanted. Now I can't and it's really frustrating.

Can Firefox PLEASE make all tabs close every time you close or swipe away from Firefox? I do NOT want to use the stupid Quit button every time.

PLEASE IT'S WHY I USE FIREFOX

Issues when opening tabs from collections

More of a piece of feedback than a question: when opening tabs from a collection (using firefox Beta), it seems that the browser treats this as restoring a previously closed tab rather than opening a new tab and navigating to a site/bookmark. This ... is problematic. And causes some weird behaviour. - Oftentimes (and seemingly at random, can't tell whether this is due to updates or if it just changes at will) tapping a site in a collection causes it to be opened in a background tab, instead going to and refreshing whichever open tab was last displayed before opening the new tab. This makes the new (collection) tab appear at the top of the tab list rather than the bottom, and is overall extremely annoying. - Sites added to a collection seem to remember (some?) previous navigation history, meaning that visiting that site and then navigating "back" to get to the home screen instead navigates to whatever was visited previous to saving the site to the collection. This is entirely consistent for the collection entries where it happens. This is not how an equivalent of a bookmark should work. - Often when opening a site from a collection, it seems that what is opened is a cached version from the previous rather than actually refreshing the site from the web. I previously had this issue for a very long period, before it finally went away, but has recently returned again. Checking a news site or forum and having to remember to refresh it manually after opening is, again, extremely annoying.

How do I stop Firefox from open a new tab for every action?

I have the newest version of Firefox on my OnePlus 6. Since the browser updated itself, every action short of clicking a 'next' link opens a new tab. Why? What is the rationale behind this? Why doesn't clicking the 'back' button close the newly opened tab? Is there a security or safety reason for this change? And most importantly HOW DO I TURN THIS OFF? Having a function that automatically closes tabs after a day/week/month/whatever doesn't resolve the issue, it's a tiny band-aid over a gaping wound. 5 minutes of browsing through bookmarks should NOT result in 12 open tabs that need to be closed.

I would like to have my Tabs across the top of the screen on my Samsung Tab s7. The users guide inticates that tabs were removed for screens of less than 7" but this is an 11" screen and has plenty of resolution and space for tabs.

Please look at Chrome for the same tablet- they do show tabs....

Please advise as to how to restore tabs else I will no longer be using Firefox- which I hate to do as Ihave been using it since its' genesys!

TIA, Ray LaBrecque

I believe with the new update, all of my tabs are now in reverse order. When I open a new tab, it goes to the bottom of the list instead of the top. I know it's not a major issue but it's a convenience issue. Is there a way to change this? I want my new tabs to show at the top of the list, not at the bottom. Thank you!

Firefox introduced collections and removed the grid view with the ability to reorder tabs, which was one of the advantages of FF over Chrome. Honestly, I don't understand why collections are better than bookmarks. But at the time, Google introduced a grid with tab groups in Chrome. Thus, the previous win turned into a losing point in the competition with Chrome. Is Firefox planning to return the grid view?

Firefox for Android used to have the built in feature where when starting up, it would show the last open tab, just like Chrome for Android. Currently, it seems to open a new tab and put you at the selection page.

I now routinely end up with many tabs since any searches are done automatically in a new tab, since reusing a previous tab now takes several taps. It's also frustrating if I accidentally close the app to have to navigate to the tabs and find it rather than just having it be there.

It would be nice to have a setting to just switch to the previously opened tab on startup. If there is a setting for it, sorry I missed it and please disregard everything.

Thanks!

Is there no way to open address bar searches, links etc. in the current/same tab? Thank you.
