Hello I am German and not used to write in english. I use Firefox on my Xperia device. Within the last Update I got the new function to collect the tabs. I created several collections and named them. After I put in the tabs and deleted them in the list. So they were only in the collections. Today I wanted to use one Tab out of the collection. But the whole collection Was not any more there, same with 2 Others! Where are these collections and the tabs now? I did not delete them and I need them.

Where are they and how can I use them again?

Kind regards

Mischa

by many users downloads in the current version of Firefox are broken. For formal reasons a moderator decided to close the thread (that Google invariably directs you to) based on a "solution" by another moderator that is a bad joke. So I'm following the advice to open another thread.

The new Firefox for Android version 79.0.5, why was it released from Beta with only nine extensions, and no way to search for more?

I know there are a lot of people, who never add a extension. But most of us get one or more extensions. I really like searching for them. I install them one at a time, and test them. If they crash Firefox, I go back and let them know, and they fix it. Also when you go to install a extension, it says which versions of Firefox it is compatible with. As this new version has been in beta for about a year there should be a lot more than nine extensions available for me to test. There should be so many by now that it should have its own search page separate from the old Firefox for Android search page. But you let it come out of beta with only nine recommended extensions, and no search page, and no way for me to install the extensions that I like to use, to test if they will work with the new version. So for now I have to wait for how many updates, before I get a update that has a link to a search page for the new Firefox for Android Extensions. Then I can search for my favorite extensions and find out if they say they are compatible with this version, then I have to test them! you guys are really being slow about this!

How to disable auto update in FireFox on Android ?

Hi,

I updated to the latest, utterly, preposterously, appallingly, awfully, obnoxiously bad version of FF on Android and immediately bailed back to V68.11.0 which I found on the web. Imagine my shock and horror at finding the new version back on my system again, without my intervention, a few hours later !!

Please can someone tell me how to set up my system so that it doesn't update FFA to any later versions, and so that the latest update is not shown in the Play Store under "My apps & games" as otherwise it is likely that the software abomination that is the latest version of FFA will find its way back onto my tablet.

I have spent hours on this, setting up and re-setting up my browser and I really have no idea what on earth was going on in the minds of the developers of this latest crock. Is it the secret intention of the leadets of this project to kill FF completely ? It seems that every change tnat is made makes browsing less intuitive and easy and there is absolutely zero payback in terms of useful functionality. Seriously, is it your intention to kill FF altogether ? It really seems like it.

But if you could answer my other questions as the higher priority, that would help.

Thanks,

My firefox was perfect, set up exactly how I wanted it and since the latest update it's all screwed up... for starters, when I open the browser I just want it to go to Google.ca and for some reason I can't find where to set a home screen up anywhere. So it loads to a blank page, not even Google, and there's no home button, so every single time I open up my browser I need to put in google.ca... annoying. Secondly no matter what I select in the options, it seems to want to bring back my previous tabs every time I close the browser, I just want it to close out and open a new tab each time... why is this so difficult? If there is any advice out there, please help... I'm sure I have more, but if those could get fixed for now it would just make using it so much better... image is of my new "home" screen... terrible...

hello ...

yesterday Firefox updated itself on my tablet ( hung on the charger while I was at work ). In the evening all my open tabs were closed, the bookmarks were gone and FF was set as default browser. Where did my tabs and bookmarks go ? Auto update is / was disabled - default browser is another browser for good reason. FF runs / ran there actually permanently and was only sent into the background. Because the tablet should not be synchronized because of special software, the bookmarks only exist there. Why were they removed during a normal update ?

When trying to download anything the download apparently begins, since a notification appears on the notification panel, but it just does not properly start. It keeps trying but no progress is shown. After a while a failure message replaces the progress notification.

This isn't a network problem, since I've tried it with different connections. There used to be no problem before.

Anybody else experiencing a similar issue?

This morning I woke up to the new "Fenix" update (v79) of the Firefox Android app. Lots of UI/UX changes, missing addons, too many steps for basic functionality and an overall "stripped" feeling/experience.

Why was this big update not announced well ahead of time, like with Firefox Quantum? It feels like a completely different browser and a jarring experience to get this pushed into the stable channel without prior notification.

Don't get me wrong; I've been using Firefox for at least the past 10 years and it's always been my favorite browser experience on both desktop and mobile. This update feels like it's packing too many changes at once. I'll hold off the update until it's proven stable, extensible and featureful.

For people who didn't yet receive the update: it might be a good idea to read up on the upcoming changes and if you want to move to Fenix.

For people who already had the update: what are your thoughts on the new Fenix experience?
