I like to collect my tabs and delete my all tabs. Collection feature in Firefox let me collect tabs of my name choice, I really like this feature a lot but this feature has a bug

  • Suppose I made collection of 3-4 number of tabs as list 1.
  • Then i delete all the tabs
  • Now when I go to my collection list 1 and select the open tab option from list, the tab comes back but again when I select open tab second time it also bring back all the tabs which was not even in the collection, and it keeps on bringing all the tabs you ever made irrespective of the collection list, though they not add to my collection list but when I open tabs from collection list it brings all the tabs which was deleted and they (tabs) even come back after clearing the browsing history also.

Please fix this problem, the solution which i recommend is

1. Collection of tabs should be separate form other browsing activity it should be like a copy which I can curate accordingly. 2. Collection list should not delete even after clearing the browsing history only by manually delete the collection list does so. 3. Give is the option of select all option for selecting tabs its very hard to select tabs one by one and then group them into my collection

Please fix this problem it's very annoying i have used collection feature in safari try to take hints from them.

My phone is Nokia X100 with android 11. CPU is 480 5G UFS 2.1 storage Ram is 6gb I already did some tweaks in about:config but it is still slow to load webpages especially going from one site to another site. Any flags recommended? I know there is the option to reduce animations but they split into many animations flags I just don't know which are supposed to be able to speed up the speed by disabling them. Please share your view

The videos look blurry and it seems like a little zoom part can be seen from one corner of the video to zoom in more. The whole video is not controlled within the skin. Nothing in the video can be seen after playing the video due to problems. I have started the application by deleting it several times in a row. In the first case it stays good for a few days and then it causes problems in video play. After browsing all kinds of websites, the videos get blurry. Hopefully that will solve the problem.

Any time I move my Samsung phone (without even passing security fingerprint) a message box appears then quickly disappears until moving the phone again

Cannot take screenshot of problem (pop up ms from Amazon via Firefox) . . as soon as I pick up the phone or attempt any action whatsoever, the message box disappears. And since I have a fingerprint access option on, the moment my finger touches the screen for full access there is no record of the message for screen capture. Also, if I do nothing, the screen goes black (normal, with time/date etc visible) within a few seconds after the message appears . . though it is waiting for me to touch the screen at which time it reappears again for a few seconds. So it is pick up the phone . . trigger motion detection . . message box appears . . wait a couple of seconds . . black screen . . touch or pick up the phone . . message box . . black screen etc. I can of course do the fingerprint scan and have full phone features, but the preliminary nag "box message" all the time bugs the hell out of me. In the text of my "complaint" I quoted what the message says, it is not from Firefox but does have a tiny Firefox logo upper left. The small rectangular window also has a left/right "full return" arrow (grayed out each one) with a black "pause" button in between the two arrows, and it is not grayed out. However nothing happens if I touch it. In very small print under the main text (first few words of my Amazon review) is a link to the Amazon page where I posted a review of a product. The message itself that I refer to is NOT from Firefox, but is comprised of the first few words of my review headline (not all of it but most) on the Amazon product comment review page. So even though the "content" of the unwanted message is from Amazon, the Firefox logo nevertheless appears (very tiny) in the upper left of the rectangular window, so it appears to be a composite error interaction between Firefox and Amazon. How to tell Firefox to stop posting it? Or how to tell Amazon that their software is somehow involved? I haven't a clue . . ! This is a re-written complaint . . the original one resulted in an email request from "Seburo" who asked for a screenshot, but did not provide a return email address that functioned. So I am posting here a second time, thanks.

When visiting this page, https://pluralkit.me/commands/#system-commands, and using "find in page" the find it page prompt just randomly closes. It happens a few ways. A few times I've been halfway through typing my search query, and on the third letter, the prompt & my keyboard disappear. Every other time I hit the "next item" button a few times and on the 1-6th time, the prompt disappears. I can re-open it but it loses my search query, and it's annoying.

I'm using Firefox

98.3.0 (Build #2015870331), b1a12ce69+ AC: 98.0.13, a31f2c481a GV: 98.0.2-20220322144853 AS: 91.0.1

On Android 12 (SP2A.220305.013.A3) on a Pixel 6 Pro. No add-ons. I've tried restarting the Firefox app.

Does not appear to happen on a few other websites I've tried.

i try to login on bahn.de. they redesigned the login-procedure recently. and with the new login it crashes the Firefox tab reproducible on my phone. i get the `Firefox can't load that page` message. on of the crash reports can be found at https://crash-stats.mozilla.org/report/index/d3962d01-f863-4f6c-908d-3d4af0211103

i have cleaned up with `Privacy and Security` - `Delete browsing data` (all options set) and also did clean the cash for the firefox app from the system settings.

the url is (i removed the nonce and state values) https://accounts.bahn.de/auth/realms/db/protocol/openid-connect/auth?cancel_uri=https%3A%2F%2Ffahrkarten.bahn.de%2Fprivatkunde%2Flogin%2Fidmredirect.post%3Flang%3Dde%26country%3DDEU%26scope%3DCANCEL&showRegisterWithBahnCard=true&kc_locale=de&showSoftLogin=true&scope=openid&response_type=code&redirect_uri=https%3A%2F%2Ffahrkarten.bahn.de%2Fprivatkunde%2Flogin%2Fidmredirect.post%3Flang%3Dde%26country%3DDEU%26scope%3DRETURN&state=0&showReloginMessage=false&nonce=0&client_id=fe_esuite

the original url was 551 characters long.

my first impression was that the url may be to long.. i tried to shorten it - https://accounts.bahn.de/auth/realms/db/protocol/openid-connect/auth?cancel_uri=https%3A%2F%2Fbahn.de&kc_locale=de&showSoftLogin=true&scope=openid&response_type=code&redirect_uri=https%3A%2F%2Ffahrkarten.bahn.de&state=0&nonce=0&client_id=fe_esuite (247 characters) this one worked in the desktop browser but also crashes in firefox android. the crash happens latest when i click on the `Angemeldet bleiben` checkbox. on a next try it happened shortly after the loading without user interaction.

Firefox Version: ``` 93.2.0 (Build #2015839745) AC: 93.0.12, e39f5dba3f GV: 93.0-20210927210923 AS: 82.1.0 ```

OS ``` Android 7.1.2 LineageOS 14.1 ``` and yes - i know this is a very outdated OS version...


the main problem is that this login is needed to authenticate in the *db navigator app*.

with some workarounds i managed to do a successful login in the app:

  • switch system default browser to the *stock browser* app
  • click login button in *db navigator app*
  • stock browser opens with login page
  • fill in & click login
  • stock browser does not know how to handle returned url (example below)
  • copy returned url to clipboard
  • open firefox
  • past url
  • open menu and click on *open in app*
  • *db navigator app* launches and accepts the login
  • i am happy again ;-)



hopefully this is only the case for such old OS versions and this way does not effect anyone else...


are there any other things i can do for better fix the issue in the first place?

after updating to Firefox android 97.1.0 I face this error. while playing youtube video in full screen, bottom navigation bar is visible making it half baked full screen mode. later found it is same in other video playing websites too... Firefox goes fullscreen mode automatically while navigating in youtube and quite buggy in navigation bar.

I had no issues with previous version. I shouldn't have updated. I received only bugs in this update and no improvements. using Firefox in LG G8X running Android 11.

please fix this bug or share any possible solution available.
