when i have more than 10 pages open the app starts crashing, won't let me go back as well and sometimes just reloads. There were also situations in which he grabbed me without me doing anything. I have about 4-5 extensions (in the photo). I'm using Samsung Galaxy S24, my previous was A52 (I had no problem with it)

I am experiencing a problem where when I exit the Firefox for Android app with a tab open, and then reopen the same tab later, the tab search bar becomes unresponsive. I can type in a new search query or new website URL but upon pressing search, it loads indefinitely. The issue is seems specific to that tab as it doesn't persist if I open a new tab and put in the same contents into the searchbar - this works fine. This doesn't happen every time I close the app and then want to make a search from an existing tab, but it happens fairly regularly.

It's a pretty small issue as far as bugs go, but it is annoying from time to time and I would love if there was a fix :-)

I recently updated to a new version of the Firefox Android app through the Play Store, and it changed the look of the lab list so that tabs were larger. However, it also seems to have changed the tolerance for my swiping to scroll through the list. Now, when I swipe to scroll up with my right thumb, it often closes the tab under my thumb rather than scrolling. This seems to be because my swipe is at an angle due to the way I am holding my phone, but before the update I never had this problem. It would be nice if the tolerance was adjusted back to the way it was or if I could disable the swipe to delete tab feature.

I've made a video to show the issue.

I am writing to request assistance with an issue I am encountering on the latest version of the Firefox browser for Android. My goal is to open specified pages in the same tab using Intent from a third-party custom application. However, I have observed that different URLs open in separate tabs, contrary to my expectations.  Current Implementation:  Here is the code snippet I am currently using: java: Intent intent = new Intent(Intent.ACTION_VIEW); intent.setData(uri); intent.putExtra(Browser.EXTRA_APPLICATION_ID, packageName); startActivity(intent); Expected Behavior:  I expect different URLs to open in the same tab without opening new tabs. This functionality is crucial for my application.  Issue Background:  I have researched similar issues and found that users have had comparable needs using Browser.EXTRA_APPLICATION_ID. Unfortunately, it appears that Firefox has not fully addressed this functionality. The EXTRA_APPLICATION_ID is a feature that modern browsers should ideally support to enhance user experience and maintain continuity within a single tab.  References:  I have referred to the following discussions and issues for additional context:  Mozilla Support Forum: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1364869 GitHub Issue: https://github.com/mozilla-mobile/fenix/issues/23329 Request:  I kindly request that the Firefox team consider adapting this functionality officially or provide an alternative solution if it has already been addressed. Any relevant documentation or guidance on achieving this behavior would be highly appreciated.  Thank you for your time and assistance.

Firefox on Android - Active tab reloads the moment I go back to it from another application

Hello,

I'm running Firefox on Android 13 (Phone is Poco x3 pro). Running version 126.0.1

As soon as I tab out of Firefox and go to another application, for example, a 2FA app or ProtonPass to retrieve a password, then go back to Firefox, the tab will reload.

This basically means that I'm unable to log in to any site which requires 2FA or where I don't know the password by heart.

The phone has 6 GB of ram and I've set Firefox to have no battery restrictions, yet it's not helping.

I don't know what's causing this, but surely this can't be intentional? I've had to go back to Chrome because I'm literally unable to log into most websites.

I've tried reinstalling but no change. I deactivated all extensions (ublock & privacy badger) but that didn't help either.

After attempting to save about 100+ Tabs on a window frustratingly by hand, I would like to request a way to group Tabs, be able to save them to sessions and have "Select all" when holding a tab for options.

I hope someone or some of the devs can see this, because the lack of support is quite vexing, enough to switch to another browser for good, if it wasn't for the ad-free browsing

On my Android phone, the "close private tabs" notification keeps reappearing no matter how many times I tap it or swipe it away. Only way to get rid of it is by force stopping Firefox. Weird thing is that this issue doesn't repro 100% of the time either.

This is happening on Firefox 126.0, on my S23 Ultra running Android 14/One UI 6.1

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.

Whenever the app leaves the foreground, even for half a second, or if I switch tabs and then return to the original tab, it refreshes and I lose all the data on it. When I need to copy information to fill out a form, or get a code from a 2fa app, I lose all the the progress. This is driving me crazy and making it almost impossible for me to use Firefox as my main browser. I shouldn't have to restart a whole form because I got a phone call and went to the call screen for a second. Battery optimizations are all disabled.
