Open Tabs, no add-ons to save externally, how do I extract the open tabs?

I have too many tabs to go through, too many to individually open in synched Mozilla desktop (this process is laborious as there is not a dedicated window for open tab management in synched devices, each time you click one of the synched open tabs it shuts the synchronized tabs box down so going through them all is not feasible, not to mention long as hell!

There is no longer tab management add-ons because Mozilla android is now being "curated" with Mozilla add-ons or something other. So I don't have a one stop solution which will help me to deal with these tabs.

What do I do? Is there a internal tab management system that I can access, copy the URLs to save in text format? This would help a lot. OR... Just let us use the normal add-ons, which you have left available for the desktop version... Like wth?

Downloading large file over WiFi (via 'Dowload link') shows no progress (% completed) and often fails in Firefox for Android leaving no traces in the Firefox Downloads list

Hi! Have been using Firefox for Android for years. Cannot solve the following issue: trying to download a large file over (slow?) WiFi displays no signs of a download in progress (except for WiFi activity indicator in the top panel) and nothing happens (no files in the download folder, no records in the Firefox downloads list). If I retry it sometimes works. If I start another browser (Samsung Internet) the download works fine. The device is Samsung Note 8 with the latest updates installed (Android 9). The problem does not reproduce over mobile data connection (4G internet mostly, faster than the WiFi connection I use). Firefox is 92.1.1 but I have seen the issue with all previous versions in the last couple of years.

Sample scenario to reproduce: 1. open https://echo.msk.ru/programs/observation/2909078-echo/ 2. tap and hold the download tab above the video 3. a popup windows appears with the https://cdn.echo.msk.ru/snd/2021-09-25-observation-1210-3532210.mp3 title, select "Download link" (is there any other way in Firefox to download the link?) 4. the popup window disappears and nothing seems to be going on... If I go to "3 dots" menu > Downloads the file is not listed there. 5. Sometimes the download does succeed. In this case I see a notification from the Download manager in the top panel which reads 2021-09-25-observation-1210-3532210(3).mp3 was downloaded where the '(3)' suggests the previous 2 attempts to download the file did try to create the file on the device! The file is about 63 MB.

Thanks, Dmitry

After Video Background Play Fix came back in versions 82-84 on Android I tried to listen to YouTube music on my Android 11 phone with FF 84. However, YouTube videos stop playing in the background every 2-5 minutes. When I bring the YouTube tab back to the screen, the page is always blank, like “about: blank”. It's very consistent. I have tested the playback in the foreground of the same videos. No problems. I have tested background playback on my old Android 8 phone with FF 67. No problem. Then, I disabled Video Background Play Fix and was surprised. I came across some weird facts. The FF 84 can play YouTube videos in the background even without this add-on, except for audio albums with multiple audio tracks like in the two examples below: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Hfnk8fLNURc&t=2138s https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=F4v45a_N4HY . When I am playing such albums YouTube stops at the end of each track. Pressing the "Play" button resumes playback but stops again at the end of the track. Playing the same albums in the foreground is no problem again. So, I have a few questions. Is this add-on compatible with the version 84? Why am I seeing a blank screen? Why does the version 84 play YouTube without this add-on? Should it? Why does Youtube stop playing audio albums on every track?

Thanks,

 Yury

Are there any ways to make the default home screen dark in Android version of Firefox 68.10.1?

I've set my default home screen as about:home which I assume is default by default. I was wishing for a darker colorscheme/custom colorscheme! Because during day time, I tend to the use light a.k.a. the default colorscheme, however, at night, the light colorscheme literally puts strain in my eyes, and Im pretty sure any nightowls could hands down agree with that. Now, I've tried an extension called Dark background white text extension and it puts a darker color on my home screen, which is amazing, however during a search, the background unexpectedly changes to bright color. Also, the menus and the settings tab could also use a darker coloescheme! I've tried firefox nightly on my android, and liked it because of its darker colorscheme, but the basic Firefox that I'm using now, feels more comfortable (: If there's any way to implement dark mode on the app that'd be dope! Aside from that, keep up the good work!

Hi

I have been using Dashlane and 1Password for the past year. I have recently switched to firefox and I immediately noticed that autofill is not reliable as a chromium-based browser like brave, chrome, Vivaldi. It is glitchy sometimes. At a time it not showing an autofill prompt for some website. For better understanding, I have dropped a Dropbox link. I have recently checked out ver 89.1.1 and still, the issues persist.

Comparing Firefox and Brave

Thanks Hoping for a fix.

So, Startpage search string will not pass-on the actual string when using "?q=%s" (any longer?) and we have to use the full query, according to Startpage Support, "Make Startpage the default search on Firefox mobile (Android, iOS)"
