I use Firefox with Video Background Play Fix. It worked properly on my old phone, but doesn't work on my current phone. Playing unexpectedly stops sometimes, usually when I launch another app, but sometimes in my pocket.

I tried to add to about:config (in firefox nigtly) browser.tabs.unloadOnLowMemory = false . There is no such option in current version. I tried to add manually, but it didn't help.

Hi, I can use firefox anymore, because it is not usable. If I switch between programs in Android, example firefox to mBanka, then back to Firefox, tab in Firefox will reload and cannot complete forms! All lines are clear. Next problem: If I reuse tab, I cannot load new page, I must close this tab and use new one.

Hi,

I face this two issues:

1- if you open a photo inside google search, you can't change the browser to Desktop mod

Here is a video: https://share.stars-host.com/firefox/1.mp4


2- I was registering on one of the sites and i leave for second on another app... When i return i found that all the data that i enter to register was removed because firefox refreshing the page 🥲

Here is example video: https://share.stars-host.com/firefox/2.mp4

The second issue need to be fix because i use another browsers when i want to register for Governmental things, for example, that require me to enter the passport number, which is in the photo gallery...

There is a lot of data that you entered and then it is deleted in an instant when you move to another application for a few seconds (there must be a strong temporary storage space

OVER THREE YEARS PEOPLE HAVE BEEN DEMANDING THIS. When I tap a link in an app, I want it to open IN FIREFOX. Not some custom tab. Not some special pseudo in-app environment. IN. FIREFOX. EVERY OTHER browser on Android can do this. Don't give me some BS answer about removing Firefox as my default browser, either. That causes it to either open in the app I'm using, or the phone's built-in browser, NEITHER OF WHICH ARE SECURE. If you really care about security, like you're trying to sell us you are, you will fix this yesterday.

I downloaded some files while in private browsing. I'm absolutely positive they fully download as I was able to see them in my gallery and set some as a phone wallpaper. After I closed the tab/private mode, all the files were just gone. I do not have the setting to delete on exit enabled.

One file that I chose to delete myself was able to be restored so I was able to see I wasn't going crazy, but all the other ones don't even come up as deleted in Total Commander or anywhere else on my device.

Have this issue where when I click on a link for Amazon, it doesn't open the App, but keeps trying and opening new referral link tabs infinitely.

For some reason Firefox doesn't let me run an automatic bug report for submission so in this case, I clicked on a link on a website, which opened a tab with this URL (after report). But then it doesn't open the app, and just keeps opening more and more of the same tab. I stopped it after a hundred tabs opened.

So, I have 3 devices I have sync turned on, two laptops, and android phone. Laptops are where I do most of my actual work work, but the phone is where I get ideas and orders and things like that from, so where I do a lot of that stuff from. Now, I know how to open all on the laptops, but, I have only found a way to do this one tab at a time on android.

and I have been slowly opening the tabs one at a time, but i have around 840 tabs left to open.

I know this will severely slow the phone down for a while, while it attempts to do this, but I am more than willing to set my phone down over night for this...

Experiencing a peculiar issue with the latest version of Firefox for Android where search tabs get duplicated – notably, this problem is exclusive to Firefox and not observed in Firefox Beta. This duplication occurs when searching through the address bar – the first tab is the clicked link, and the second is a duplicate of the search page. Clicking on a link in the second tab leads to further duplications. This problem is more noticeable with Google searches in the search bar, but typing google.com and searching seems to works fine. Additionally, it's worth mentioning that this duplication issue extends to DuckDuckGo and Bing when searching via the address bar. It's a bit complex, as not all search links trigger the duplication, but most do. Any insights or solutions would be appreciated!

Is there a way to search through my open tabs? If not, PLEASE create that feature.

Also, is there a way to see the previous pages that have been opened in a tab? Right now, I have to just keep backspacing through previous tabs hoping to find the one I'm looking for. If not, please ad d a way to view and select previously opened tabs before I start backspacing through them.

Is there a way to sort open tabs, at least alphabetically? If not, that would be a very nice feature to have.

I'm using Android 12.

Thank you for your help.

I remember Firefox on android used to open up tabs immediately after I send them from another device, now there's a bunch of notification popping up on my phone/tablet and I have to click them one by one. It's not a bad change but if I send about 5-10 tabs over in a clump, I would prefer if the notification can bundle them all into one single item. Is there a way to fix this?

Because of that, when I go to Mozilla again I'm landing in another app again, because of the go-to tab. This is very annoying and will force me to use another browser.
