Ever since the revamp I have a lot of trouble with typing a search phrase in the address bar. After hitting enter, nothing happens. Hitting the magnifying glass: nothing. Selecting an alternate engine: nothing.

I have not noticed a definite pattern, but I want to say that it is more frequently occurring when I'm searching from a previously-opened tab (maybe something to do with trying to search from a tab that never fully opened? Just a guess.) It is not a connection problem- I switch to chrome: no problems. I want to continue using firefox, so I am writing this, but it is annoying enough that I will be forced to uninstall and use another browser if the problem persists. Good luck folks, I support Mozilla's mission and want y'all to continue to succeed

Greetings, about week or more ago whenever I would open Firefox two instances would pop up and to fully close Firefox I would have to exit out of both. While it is a rather small inconvenience having to swipe twice to fully quit the app it's slowly becoming more annoying especially when I am going through my open apps and two Firefox browsers get in the way of me finding the app I need or when I am trying to look at something from another open app quickly. Any help would be appreciated. I have a Pixel 3a running Android 11 and Firefox is updated to the most recent version. Also, I do not have any add-ons or pluggins. I have included a screen shot of what it looks like Thank you!

- youtube mobile view (not the app) full screen is not loading correctly , its to the right and off screen using phone hand held and up and to the right on Dex App (pic shown).

- listening to streaming podcasts with andriod phone , stops streaming as phone goes into screen saver.

Ive never had these issues prior to newest update. Also no issues with my samsung internet browser which is slowly becoming my default and prefered app. This happens using both phone hand held or Dex App mode.

I've noticed that the number of collections is limited to only 20. That low number itself is a pity. But adding the 21st and in consequence delete the oldest one from the 20 I don't understand and don't accept. Could you please issue an error message and state that a further collection is not possible due to having reached the maximum of 20. I should add that I noticed that behavior before I've registered for a Firefox account. Maybe people with and without an account are treated differently.

Best regards, Frank

Dowloaded Images not showing in Gallery

Hi there,

I have recently returned to Firefox for android and I've noticed a bug on my Huawei P30.

When downloading images (from any website) those images do not show up in the Huawei gallery. I can see them in my file manager, and only upon moving them to a new location do they show up. However if copied back to the download folder, the image now appears in Gallery. It is as if the gallery does not have permission to view the file, or the image file is somehow locked.

I have tried switching the location in Nightly and Beta versions using about:config but the issue persists and this is of course not possible in the release version.

Any ideas or help? It is frustrating to have to navigate to my downloads folder in my file manager every time I wish to access or share a photo I've downloaded.

Since the update of the new Firefox for android I am experiencing the worst possible experience opening a new tab. Let's say that I have

Foo Bar Baz

In my Tab panel

If I open a link from Bar in a new tab and open the Tab panel I still see

Foo Bar Baz

But, if I scroll, I "found" the new Qux bar on the top of the list!

This is very frustating... I expect that opening the tab pane I see Qux on the bottom of the list!

Btw with the new version there is no about:config anymore so I don't know how to customize this behavior
