i have Firefox on my laptop and Firefox browser on my tablet. I am writing this on my tablet. The one on my laptop is a mess - won't open most of the time and when it does, won't look for the sites I want. When i close it, it looks closed but really isn't. Can I delete it and reinstall it without losing my bookmarks because i have the browser on my tablet? This would give me a clean version. I am writing this on my tablet.

Why does the app icon on my phone show a red dot, I can't find anything within settings to get rid of it. Presumably it's some sort of notification but it's not much use if I can't find out what it's notifying me about!

The latest Android+Firefox update has Firefox opening in Immersive Mode (full screen, hiding Navigation bar and Status/notification bar). I am frequently navigating between apps, so this requires me to do a lot of extra gestures in my daily interactions with Firefox. Also, I miss being able to quickly check the time and my battery life in the status bar. I know some people like immersive mode, but there are many use cases where forced full screen is not desirable, so there should be a setting to toggle this off.

How to stop Firefox mobile form refreshing every time I leave the app and come back?

How do I stop Firefox mobile from refreshing every time I leave the app and come back? This wouldn't be such a big issue expect for the fact that I use bitwarden as my password manager. So every time I want to enter my password bitwarden leaves Firefox so I can unlock my vault. Then when I re-enter Firefox Bitwarden is unable to fill in the username and password cause the page is refreshing. Sometimes it even takes me out of the password page because the login screen for the site is a pop-up. Not a separate window.

This also becomes super annoying when filling out any forms and I need to grab info from another app cause a lot of time on form pages when you refresh the page the form gets cleared. It's at it's worst if I have to leave Firefox to copy and paste multiple items because then I copy one item, re enter Firefox paste, leave Firefox to copy the next item, re enter Firefox and the thing I pasted before is gone because the page refreshed! STOP REFRESHING THE PAGE EVERY TIME I LEAVE AND RENTER THE APP!!! It doesn't matter if I leave for mear seconds or used the recent app section to quickly switch between Firefox and another app.

I am on a Samsung Galaxy S20 FE.
