There is a large info box popping up in the bottom of the screen when I close tabs. I usually press 'x' and close tabs starting with the last one but this info box that says 'tab closed' and has an undo button on it, is covering a big portion of the last tab including it's 'x' button. It is even larger in landscape mode. This is very annoying and if I want to close another tab I'd have to wait for it to disappear or try to press around it. It's a useful feature but could the experience be made more better?

"Tab closed" popup covers button to close last tab in Firefox for Android

I believe this is a bad interaction between my Device's theme and Firefox's behavior. In Firefox for Android, whenever I close a tab, a "Tab closed. Undo" popup comes up. This in and of itself isn't too bad, but the problem is it's *exactly hovering over the last tab*.

So if I want to close multiple tabs in a row, I can do that for any tab *except* the last one. If I want to close the last two tabs, for instance, which I often do, I have to tap close on one of them, wait 5 seconds for the popup to close, then tap the second.

I've tried tapping on this popup, but it does nothing. It would be nice if tapping on the popup closed it. But ideally, the popup would not obscure the "close tab" button on the last tab

Maybe the popup could push the tabs up, so it's under them rather than on top of them? To be honest, I don't care what the solution is, just offering some.

Sorry to rant - it's just very annoying for what I find to be a very common UI interaction with Firefox for Android. I'd really like to just be able to close my tabs in any order, without thinking about it, and without waiting 5 seconds between tabs for a popup...

I'm using Firefox 90.0.12 on a OnePlus Nord N200 5G running Oxygen OS 11.0.0.0.DE17AA (Android 11).

Hi Everybody! I use Firefox Nightly 91 for Android and I wish to know how I can reverse the ordering of my tabs.

I don't want to rearrange my tabs (which seems not possible and has been answered here several times already). I just want to have the possibility to reverse the ordering: currently, my "latest" tabs are at the bottom of the list but I want them to be at the top. Just that.

By the way, if I remember well it was like I wish it to be on a previous version but was suddenly reversed after an update.

If there is an appropriate entry for that in about:config, I'll be a happier user!

Thanks in advance!

Using a 5.1 inch screen that when held horizontally only has 1 tab preview viewed at a time when the tab list is in use. There is too much unused space in the tab list. Is there a way to change the mobile ui to revert to the old updates ui? That one did not have this problem with at least 3-4 tab previews being visible at one time. The image I uploaded is an example of how much space is taken up by the blocky design and only 1 tab is visible here.

Hi,

When using Firefox for Android, I've noticed this pesky issue, where, upon deleting a tab, a somewhat-handy, purple pop-up appears on my screen, allowing me to "undo" the deletion of the tab that I just deleted. I like this functionality, overall, but I do not like that it blocks me from deleting the next lowest tab. The pop-up is obstructing the screen, preventing me from hitting the next x-out button.

The solution for this, from the designers perspective, would be a minor adjustment to the placement of the pop-up: making it smaller, or moving it a bit further into the lower bottom/right of the screen.

After this post, I will try looking for a setting that will make my UI appear a bit smaller; however, I do not know if this setting even exists in the first place.

Lastly, I apologize if this is the wrong place to post this complaint, I didn't know where to go.

Thank you, Mason

A couple annoyances that could be improved upon:

Restoring a closed tab goes to the top/back of the tab list instead of to its previous position at the front/bottom. If you have a large number of tabs open this is pretty frustrating.

Also, when you close a tab there is a pop-up alert with the option to Undo. The pop-up blocks the lowest tabs in the list, which means if you want to close several tabs in succession it is very slow if they become blocked.

I am building a web app where I need to open blank tab for redirect its working on desktop but not in android.

/**

    * New Window
    */
   const newWindow: any = window?.open(, '_blank');

   if (!newWindow) return;
   /**
    * Loading Text
    */
   const textNode: any = newWindow.document.createElement('h1');
   textNode.appendChild(document.createTextNode('Loading ...'));
   newWindow.document.body.appendChild(textNode);

When the open parameter is empty it should open blank tab but instead its opening the current location. When put 'about:blank" in open parameter, it open blank page but the createNode function & other codes are not running.

Hi, I've been using Firefox on my Huawei P30 for about 2 years now. A few month ago, I installed an update for Firefox. Since then, I've been quite annoyed, because: when I quit the app (I don't close it completely) and re-open Firefox a few minutes later, I don't get back to my last tab but to a starting page with 'frequently visited websites'. I have to go to the tab-overview and reopen the tab I visited last. I don't want that, I want to get back to my last opened tab by default. That was possible before the update and I liked it much better.

I couldn't find anything in the settings of Firefox or by using Google to fix the problem. Pls help, I don't want to switch to Chrome.

Firefox would be the best browser if Mozilla ALLOWED US TO MOVE TABS AND BOOKMARKS so that we could keep tabs about the same topic together.

But Mozilla doesn't seem to be concerned with such a simple and basic function, nor the users that request it. We used to be able to move tabs (like in my list of 55 tabs), but with the last update...

Not only can we not move tabs to group them, but an accidentally closed tab that is "undone" is put at top of page, away from its other related tabs. Many good changes, but one really bad one. Please allow us to move tabs.

There is a design flaw in a recent update of firefox for android. When I am trying to close tabs quickly from the bottom, the "tab closed, undo" button is now positioned directly over the X mark on the next tab to close the next one and I have to wait until it goes away to close the next tab. This is extremely frustrating and I am hoping this is fixed soon. It is taking 3 times as long to close my tabs in the order I would like to. The button just needs to be very slightly thinner and the X mark for the next tab will not be blocked anymore.

I ALSO WANT TO ADD THAT I STILL CANNOT REORDER MY TABS ON ANDROID AND IT IS DRIVING ME INSANE. PLEASE FIX!!!!

I recently switched from a Huawei P20 to a Samsung Galaxy S21 Ultra. Under tabs settings I have grid selected on both phones. The Huawei phone shows the tabs 1 pane wide and 2 high and you scroll up and down to view them all. As such, the tabs are very easy to read. The Samsung shows the tabs 2 panes wide and 4 high. The panes are small, difficult to read and show far too much info to be comfortable (at least for me). Is there any way to set the size of the grid layout or is this a preferred layout for Huawei. I recently gave up on Google Chrome because they disabled the "tile" feature for their tabs.

I recently quit using Google Chrome on my android phone. I have always used tabs in a tiled format and they recently changed to a grid format in the tab menu (2 tiles wide). While others find this convenient, I definitely don't. It's too difficult to read. So, I switched to Firefox and fount that in tab grid view it was only 1 tile wide....perfect. it was nice and easy to read. The other day, I upgraded to a Samsung S21 Ultra, and now the tab grid view is 2 tiles wide....just like Chrome. Can I change if back to 1 tile wide? If not, I may as well go back to using Chrome.

On Androis, Firefox Daylight gives a popup message when closing a tab in the list of tabs. If the list of tabs is longer than the screen, it blocks the bottom most tab's close icon. Therfore closing two (or more) tabs in rapid succession is not possible.

This is something I often do, when I noticed I left open a lot of tabs that I don't need anymore I always have to wait for the popup disappears to close the bottom most tab.


The popup could be smaller or block the tab from moving behind it.
