I'm on android nightly 94. Some recent changes started grouping tabs in two different way, both of which have degraded my experience in the app.

The first is grouping inactive tabs, I have Firefox set to not automatically close inactive tabs but I'm still kind of paranoid Firefox is going to close them anyway. Even if it won't, then it's just hiding them from view and makes me forget about them. I would rather they got some kind of icon or label instead.

The second is the very new search term labeling. This isn't a bad idea, but in practice it's absolutely miserable. My search terms are full to the brim with typos that google gracefully handles but firefox just leaves as incoherent labels on my tabs that makes no sense. Plus I will frequently reuse an open tab for a new search, meaning the label is completely irrelevant to what's now in the tab. The worst part is that the vast majority of my tabs are in a group labelled "other", meaning this feature just poinlessly segregates a handful of tabs and pulls them all the way to the top of the list. When it does decide a tab gets a label, that also means they're no longer in recently created order, so I have no sense of static positioning in the tab list. Plus it makes the tab list way longer overall.

Attached is a screenshot exhibiting my inability to type accurately on a phone keyboard and the search labels inability to correctly match the contents of a tab.

All in all, I think these features a huge downgrade in terms of usability, I have a short term memory disorder and I know it makes things much harder on me. I would like to be able to disable them somehow, but I can't find any toggles or anything anywhere.

As many times as it has been asked, and as many times the question has been incorrectly answered, why not make it easy to add this simple feature?

As much as I love Firefox on my PC, and as much as I hate Google, I'm going back to it as my browser.

Why would a company knowingly frustrate it's customers?

Hello,

I use firefox on my tablet. I prefer the desktop version of all websites. 

I have tried changing the useragent, however I still get the mobile zoom and need to flip the toggle. There isn't a mobile extension, as the list is limited and personal extension collections is still beta.

If I recall correctly, iPad OS has a setting that allows me to force the desktop version. Is there a plan to add that setting to android?
