Hi,

So in the "old" Firefox on android there was a possibility to have links opened in the background. This was removed with the overhaul update and I have been missing it ever since.

Right now I'm using pocket to have the links opened in the background but pocket outright sucks, it never shows the whole proper article and reddit pages are not shown properly either, it even makes those pages unreadable and its not showing the comments.

So to this point I am about to ditch pocket again. But I want to know if Firefox will bring back the background opening or did it purposely removed it so people would use pocket more?

If Firefox is sadly not bringing it back, I do believe Firefox is no longer my go to option and sadly forced to look for a browser that still have the background option.

Please let me know if Firefox will bring this feature back in the near future or not.

I have the Samsung 21Ultra. I had a lot of apps, chrome saved web links along with Firefox web links. I was setting up the phone and all the web links via Firefox disappeared. Not any app nor the Chrome links, just Firefox. Is there a way to get them reloaded automatically? Thanks in advance

Only a few add on. Just make add on feature like old version where a host of add ons were available which helped in avoiding separate softwares / apps..

Also the download progress bar. Missing. Very important. Not sure who in his sane state ordered this to be removed. Very sad

The previous answers (ex: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1185193) all say to go to 'settings > general > home > top sites'. There is no 'top sites' sub area. The sections are as follows:

'Set a Homepage': 'about:home' Also use for new tabs (off) Panels (unclickable label) Add-ons (unclickable label) Content updates: Wi-Fi


Please let me know how I can turn off the suggestions from Pocket and Highlighted pages. I still want it to show my Top Pages that I visit. I do not care to see any recommendations. I use other services to discover content and certainly don't need it every time I try to open a new web browser window.
