Lately, Firefox for Android has started "forgetting" active tabs. I have changed absolutely nothing in the settings. Most of the Active Tabs I've had for years are gone. Now I only have about 5 left & they get corrupted every couple of days. For example, the 3rd one in the attached Screenshot: I'm playing "catch-up" on old Guardian crosswords, currently on 15,179. At irregular intervals, say every couple of days, it gets replaced with an older one, 15,166 for example. I suspect it must have been changed in the Version released on March 19, 2024 (124.0)

Private tabs disconnects the second I switch to another app or turn off screen. And when I switch back tabs basically opens again. So if I try to listen to a podcast from a private tab, it will stop, if there was any data typed, it will be lost. I disabled all power saving settings on the phone, it didn't help. And I didn't find anything in Firefox settings I'm using redmi note 10 with miui 14 global. Firefox from Google play. And UBlock and Privacy Badger are installed

How to save inactive tabs to desktop

I have probably over 1000 tabs on my Android that I wanted to start to bookmark in my desktop. I find that most of them are inactive now, which I appreciate the intent, but I never asked for. Now when I have time to deal with them, I have tried multiple ways to bring them to my computer or bookmark them from my phone, but nothing seems to work. It doesn't seem like there is much of anything that you can do with inactive tabs even if you share them to your desktop.

It is my understanding from trying to research this, that the Collections you create on your phone are not synced to my Firefox account so that doesn't seem helpful. Is there an extension that could solve this for me? It doesn't work to try to bookmark them from my phone because they don't show up in my desktop bookmark folder that I assigned.

The thing that has worked best so far is to Share my tabs to a temporary folder [Phone Inactive Tabs] on my desktop then search (for example: recipe) then open some in tabs and bookmark them. However, after I have categorized them into the proper bookmark folder (Food/Recipes), they disappear from that folder when I try to delete them from my temporary folder. It does the same thing if I save tabs into OneTab first.

Can someone please help me so that I don't lose years of things that I really want to keep? I would appreciate it! It would be helpful if I could even share all my inactive tabs (or even URLs) into a folder on my desktop so that I could search and bookmark them at a later time without it deleting all that work. Thanks in advance!

This applies to the latest Firefox for Android version (this issue did not occur with the previous version). I manually closed my tabs and closed the Firefox app when I exit. However, when I open the app again, the previously closed tabs are there as if they were never closed. This is fixed if I delete browsing data but, obviously, this is not an ideal solution. I have tried to attach a short clip of this issue in action but it will not upload. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.

Hello,

I've been using Dolphin for a few years because of its interface, where tabs are displayed above the address bar.

But it hasn't been updated in over a year, so would like to move to Firefox… but FF on Android doesn't support that feature out of the box while it does in the web version.

Is there an add-on available?

Thank you.

I want to view the linked page in a new tab. Not the page of search results.

Since release 114.0 the tabs tray doesn't completely open in horizontal mode on my device(s) (Pixel 2 & Zenfone 9, Android 13). I click the tabs button, then swipe the tray up to open it now. Screenshots show what happens when I click the tabs button. This happens in Firefox and Fennec (F-Droid)

As best I can tell, this started happening after Improve collapse animation of the tabs tray FAB & scrim / 444597e.

I am trying to move all the synced tabs brought in from android chrome and Firefox pc into the current active tabs I have on Firefox android.

I've only been able to get 1 at a time to move over, but I have well over a hundred open in putting the two other browsers together..

Everything I've been able to look up about it only deals either the syncing part.


And, is there a way to have am active sync? As in, I open a tab in Firefox on laptop, it opens that tab on my Firefox mobile? And vice versa.

URL autocomplete shows mail.ru

Hi Firefox-Supporters,

I use Firefox for Android for long time. I use

  • Firefox for Android Version 104.1.0 (Build #2015898515)
  • Addons: uBlock Origin, Privacy Badger, NoScript, Decentraleyes
  • Autocomplete URLs (Settings - Search - Adress bar): active
  • Firefox for Android linked with a Firefox account and my Firefox Windows installation

Since about two weeks I sometimes get mail.ru as an Autocomplete URL suggestion when I am starting to type 'm', which should show mydealz.de as my by far the most visited website with letter m (visits: 10 or more / day). Sometimes the Autocomplete Feature still suggests mydealz.de. For months and years, it always suggested mydealz.de as expected, I have never seen any suggestion for mail.ru . Now I am wondering why sometimes mail.ru is suggested, as I did not make any (intentional) changes to my setup. Do you have any tips on finding the source for that suggestion? I was wondering if any app/addon or similar is opening the website in the background, as I did not open it intentionally.

Things I already checked/actions I made to find the potential source or at least fix the issue

  • Searched bookmarks (Android and Windows) for mail.ru - no bookmark set
  • Searched search engines (Android and Windows) for entry for mail.ru - no entry set
  • Searched history (Android and Windows) for visits of mail.ru - no entry
  • Delete browsing data (Android): works short-term, first suggestion after deletion is is monero.org with letter m, mail.ru showed after a few times typing 'm' in the adress bar.
  • Searched for newly installed apps on android phone - max. 1-2 new apps installed within the last weeks, would classify them as reliable.
  • Searched for newly installed apps and total scan for viruses on Windows Laptop - no new Apps installed, no virus found by MS Windows integrated scanner.

Would be glad if anybody got any tips on this.

Kind regards

Hi,

All of a sudden I started getting a strange download indication which didn't show up when I looked for it. Since then, when I press "+ New Tabs," a new tab doesn't open. A new tab opens only when I've clicked on a new link for a topic.

I cleared the cache, restarted my phone twice and un-and re-installed Firefox twice. I was originally synced with Firefox on my other phones, but I don't want to sign in again with that email until this problem is fixed. I haven't opened Firefox again on my previous phones since this all started. I'm going to cry if those versions are "infected" with this problem as well. I just can't erase all the data I've previously accumulated within Firefox on those devices, either.

Now I've looked in Firefox Support for this problem and I've looked again and again for a way to restart in Safe Mode, but I can't find it. Could someone please help me diagnose and fix this issue?

Closed tabs do not stay closed. If I close one or more tabs then close the app, closed tabs will be opened again when I open the app. Even clearing them from history doesn't stop Firefox from reopening closed tabs. This has been an issue since the update on late April - early May 2023. If I navigate to a new site then close the tab, the old site will be reopened on start up.
