Hi, I've been using Firefox on my Huawei P30 for about 2 years now. A few month ago, I installed an update for Firefox. Since then, I've been quite annoyed, because: when I quit the app (I don't close it completely) and re-open Firefox a few minutes later, I don't get back to my last tab but to a starting page with 'frequently visited websites'. I have to go to the tab-overview and reopen the tab I visited last. I don't want that, I want to get back to my last opened tab by default. That was possible before the update and I liked it much better.

I couldn't find anything in the settings of Firefox or by using Google to fix the problem. Pls help, I don't want to switch to Chrome.

After I updated Firefox on Android to version 89, at random times it crashes when I open it and nothing works excepts reinstalling it (Android says it's crashing continuously and the only thing I see after is the crash reporter). Problem is that everytime it happens I lost my collections and settings (those seems not to be synced like bookmarks).

I suspect its related to sync, I currently have 3 devices in sync, a linux desktop, an android 5 phone and an android 9 phone (I consider it the main firefox for me). It started after updating both the phones and the desktop to 89.

Firefox: 89 Android: 9 Device: Asus Zenfone Max Pro M2

Recent development in the past couple months. Inputting text to input text form fields can often be slow, and is often scrambled.

I found a temporary fix of clearing cache. This needs to be addressed. Two separate phones. Firefox rose to awesomeness again a few versions ago, now, every update seems to make it worse. UI elements look worse to me now.

Use back button to close tabs

Hello everybody, I use Firefox for some days now, but I'm a little annoyed with the back button / back gesture usage with tabs. On all browsers I already tried, pressing back button finally close the tab after going back to the first website opened. But with Firefox, it only go to home and let the website open without closing taba. So we have to often close manually opened tabs. Is there a way to change that please ? Sorry for my bad english, I hope it's clear.

Thanks in advance.

i have some custom search engines on Firefox Android 89 (settings > search > add search engine > other).

i noticed that Firefox seems to be ordering the search engines in an arbitrary order.

when i first add the searches, they appear in the order that they are added.

but after the phone is restarted (note: not the browser, the phone), the search engines are ordered in a different way.

this same order shows up in both the settings search engine list (settings > search) and also the search engine selection list (url bar > search engine)

i have observed: - it is not sorted by alphabetical by engine name - it is not sorted by alphabetical by engine url (with or without protocol prefix) - it is not sorted by order added - it is deterministic: if i delete an engine and re-add it, even if i name it something different, after a phone restart it'll still return to the same position it was before

so my questions are: 1. how exactly does Firefox sort the search engines? 2. how do i set a custom order for the search engines?

thanks!

Closing tabs individually creates a too large info box

There is a large info box popping up in the bottom of the screen when I close tabs. I usually press 'x' and close tabs starting with the last one but this info box that says 'tab closed' and has an undo button on it, is covering a big portion of the last tab including it's 'x' button. It is even larger in landscape mode. This is very annoying and if I want to close another tab I'd have to wait for it to disappear or try to press around it. It's a useful feature but could the experience be made more better?

Every time I "tab out" to another app on my phone, and tab back in yo Firefox, it causes the page to reload.

I'm using a Galaxy S20+, so there is no shortage of RAM or any system specification - and this issue does not happen with Samsung Internet or Google Chrome.

Can this be fixed - else I will have to return to Samsung Internet.

It's very annoying having to redo forms etc. just because I switched back and forth between apps.
