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

Option to Rename Shortcut While Installing Web App (as Add to Home Screen behaves)

When Adding a Shortcut to the Android Home Screen, it allows you with a pop-up option to Rename the Shortcut before placing it on your Home Screen.

However, when attempting to Install a Progressive Web App (from compatible Web App web sites), and clicking Install, it does NOT give you the opportunity to Rename the Shortcut.

In contrast, Chrome/Android allows the name change in both cases (non-Web App and Web App sites).

Is this feature in the works on FireFox Android?

Is there a work-around to Rename Shortcuts either before or after placing them on the Home Screen ?

Hello,

This morning, I have accidentally close all my tabs (60+ tabs, which were open for more than 5+ years), while I wanted to reopen a recently closed tab. I suppose that this mistake was due to the sensitivity of the touch screen, since both option are next to each other in the menu.

I see multiple problems here: - There was no dialog asking me if I wanted to close all my tabs. While on Desktop this dialog exists. So for a long time I had no clue what just happened. - As I remember, Firefox did not gave me the opportunity to undo my action.

Now, the question is: How can I reopen all my closed tabs ? The menu "Recently closed tabs" have only 10 items, and those do not belong to the 60+ tabs that have been closed.

Is there a way to reopen all the tabs that I accidentally closed (I do not use Firefox Sync) ?

Thanks in advance

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?

When I am finished with a tab and close it, and then close down Firefox app, when I click back into Firefox the tabs that I have closed are still there open. How can I stop this from happening without having to "quit" and clear cache etc all the time? Surely when you close a tab it should stay closed?

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.

D told me to ask support here.

my Browser was running slow with having hundreds of tabs open (mostly in inactive section), especially after mobile browser update.

Then I just open Firefox, and everything is Gone.

I go download Firefox on my desktop to attempt to backup up any copy of open tabs.

there are none.

luckily I have my history from my mobile saved on to my desktop.

but from what I read and my understanding, there is no way to backup Firefox history, only bookmarks.

what am I suppose to do? any fix? any recovery to access open tabs? or backup history?

(Note; I have tabs on my mobile browser to Never delete tabs. this glitch is Firefox's problem. I probably would've backed up my tabs if it was still working to fix the slowness issue.)

The browser for android is excellent in a lot of ways, but I find it really irritating when I open the app and see tabs I already closed in my previous sessions open in the new session. You end up having to close the same tab multiple times because each time you leave the app and return, the tabs are automatically reopened. Sometimes as many as 2 or 3 previously closed tabs are reopened automatically whenever the app is opened next. I just find this quirk highly annoying and I wonder if there's a fix for this

I already use Firefox for Desktop and I'm currently moving from Chrome to Firefox on Android, one feature that I miss is the possibility of splitting the screen with two instances of browser each side.

Firefox allow splitting but you can only open a different app on the other side. I'd like to open Firefox on both sides and move tabs from one side to another.

I've attached one image to show how it look like on Chrome.

I was browsing through Firefox and as usual I had more than 30 tabs open. I have set them to never close and move old tabs to inactive ones. I was watching a video in a tab and closed Firefox then open another app in cellphone and then after some hours I reopen Firefox and there was only 1 tab (wordreference.com) What happened to the other 30 tabs? They're nowhere. I looked for support and there are many threads and videos for the desktop version but almos inexistent for Firefox Android version. There must be an explanation for this issue and perhaps a solution or workaround. Thank you.
