(Firefox Nightly) The tabs and menu buttons seem to have been relocated to a fixed pane on the bottom of the browser window. I can't tell if this was part of an update or some accidental swipe. My attempts to fix this:

Longpressing these ui elements doesn't show any contextual options.

Settings seems to only allow relocation of the url bar top/bottom.

Nothing in the configuration editor (json or xml or whatever seems to cover this, but I am not particularly fluent in browser widgetspeak.

Suffice it to say, tapping tabs and menu (for extensions) is a high frequency activity so having these irreversibly(?) relocated is frustrating.

I am using Firefox nightly on Android. About two weeks ago I noticed that my toolbar got moved to the bottom after some update, while address bar is still at the top. I tried looking for it in settings but couldn't find anything about toolbar, that's weird since I was able to customize it a few years ago when I installed Firefox for the first time. So I looked it up on the internet and they say that it's in Settings/Customize/Toolbar, but in my browser settings instead of Toolbar there is Address bar settings. Has toolbar's settings been moved somewhere else? It looks like in previous versions it was under Customize section.

As of today in Firefox Nightly for Android the buttons noted in the subject line above have now taken up a section of my screen instead of being tucked away in a menu, which is my preference. I cannot figure out how to put it back as I have no need for these to be persistent in any way. Please instruct me on how to reassert the previous settings.

Home screen custom wallpaper selection, new themes ( blue, white or smth else ), new open tabs section style. Please bring a few more features like this, because Firefox can be made much more beautiful (I think so). Especially custom wallpaper should come as quickly as possible. This is just one user's opinion, I hope you take it into consideration.

Hi Firefox Developer Team,

I hope this message finds you well. I wanted to suggest a feature that I believe would enhance user experience: the option to use custom wallpapers or backgrounds in Firefox. Having the ability to personalize the browser with custom images would make it more appealing and engaging for users. Could you consider implementing this feature in a future update?

Thank you for your hard work and dedication to improving Firefox.

Hi I'm using speed dial 2 on Firefox desktop. On Firefox Android I have not this possibility to set custom dials/sites on Start page and new tabs. When I try to use the built-in function I see pages from history. It's a big must and huge update to integrate a facility like this.

1. When we press Home button in the app toolbar, It opens a new tab and sends the active tab in background instead of closing the tab. The correct working of Home button is to show Homepage in current tab. For opening new tab, we can use "New Tab" option. Because of this all tabs keep getting stored in background and it's quote irritating.

2. Same for back swipe gesture, the tab gets stored in background instead of closing. For example, I clicked on an Article in Google Feed, it redirects to Firefox, now after reading the article, I swiped back to go back to Google Feed. Now swiping back gesture doesn't close the active tab, instead it stored the tab in background. Because of this too much tabs gets stored in background and need manual effort to remove the tabs.

So, Fix these two features.

  1. Sometimes I use the browser while the system is in dark mode.
  2. Then I switch system to light mode. FF recognizes it and switches to light mode accordingly.
  3. Then I use it in light mode for a little more.
  4. Then some time passes (maybe a few hours), I don't use FF during that time.
  5. Then, I tap on FF icon, the browser starts, but immediately switches back to dark mode, while the system is still in light mode.
  6. I have to close FF by swiping on it in task switcher, and then tap on the app again.
  7. FF now uses light/dark theme according to system.

Device: Motorola Edge 30 Neo with stock Android 14.

I am using Fennec: 124.1.0 (Build #1241020), 516df33ca9+ GV: 124.0.1-20240326023132 AS: 124.0

Home screen might be considered a specialized bookmark I suppose but the categories don't directly apply above. Browsers for decades have allowed a custom Url to be entered or "use current page" as home screen. I can find no option under firefox settings for Android enter it. What's the trick?

I picked last tab but that isn't the same as a fixed URL such as my bank website or Facebook page I would always want to see first.
