After a recent update, maybe 95 or possibly 94, I've begun to experience a small but very annoying issue with using the URL/searchbar.

I'll usually just enter my query, e.g "test", but this now opens 2 tabs, 1. with the actual search result page and 1 tab that opens a new search result page. This happens when using different search engines. I've tried re-installing the app, clearing all cache, storage, removed my Firefox Sync account etc. with no changes.

I've recorded a video of the behaviour: https://photos.app.goo.gl/ZLEZ2omVJaWXTEaM8

In v.96.2.0, when a new tab is opened (either with the "+" or menu "new tab"), I do get a new tab - but in this version I no longer get the 3 vertical dots beside the address bar to allow me to, for instance, access my bookmarks or history. My choice is limited to the bookmarks already on the homepage. This was not the case with previous versions.

If, after I create the new tab, I do select one of the homepage bookmarks - say, Google search - the 3 vertical dots reappear and Incan get at my bookmarks ... but now I've got an unwanted extra tab open.

Weird.

Since an update a few weeks ago, every time I enter an address or tap one of my most visited sites, instead of continuing on from the previous site, it opens a new tab.

I've scoured the settings but can't find anything. Surely this is a bug? I end up with 10 tabs within minutes. Can't understand what the purpose of this change is

How can I permanently disable multiple tabs on mobile Firefox? Or force it to only use 1 tab? Multiple tabs is so 9ncredibly annoying and pointless, it just clutter things up, and I don't want to have to go through extra steps to get a refreshed page or continually close tabs Im not using but that clutter the screen.

There MUST be a way to disabke them???

Hello My private tabs sometimes abruptly disappear when I come back to the browser, even though I do not do anything unusual. I cannot discern any predictable pattern. But when I go to the crash report section in the settings, there is no record of it, I suppose because the private navigation crashed within the browser not the app itself.

I appreciate the hard work, for developing and continue developing the MOZILLA FIREFOX. I am an information seeker. I usually search for information about various things, when I found it out, I simply minimize the browser and when I get free time I will jump into the results. So my problem is the TAB AUTO REFRESHING. I am aware of the add-on 'TAB AUTO REFRESH' but it's not available in ANDROID (I am using one), so anyone have alternative way, please respond. I value your feedback very much.

P.S :- Thank you for your time and response in advance.

In Huawei and that firefox newer version, if you open many tabs, like 8, you cannot slide between them, uponopening Firefox again, let's say tomorrow. It does not allow to slide with finger and switch from let's say first tab to eight. You see info in right bottom corner that there are 8 tabs, but you can not get those to open. You can not switch from visible tabs to those it visible at the moment.

Phone model: Blackshark 2, Android 10

Firefox Nightly 92.0a1 (Build #2015826123)

When opening the tabs with between over 60 ~ 70 tabs in potrait screen, the tabs will defaulted to List option despite the setting is set to Grid option. To switch into Grid view correctly, the tab must be opened in potrait mode then rotate the phone to landscape and back into potrait view. However, closing the tabs view and reopen will switched back into List view again. Reinstall or restarting the app while in Grid setting doesn't work.

Landscape screen mode can switch between and keep according option chosen in the setting correctly.

Like a week ago an update came and made tabs become inactive on Firefox nightly Android. That wouldn't be a problem, you can just turn on a setting so that they never get closed, but it's really anoying when your scrolling through the many open tabs and your new tab is at the very bottom in the inactive tabs section. If you open and activate the tab than it become active, but if I open many tabs or if I don't want to activate a tab that I just opened I will have to search for in in the inactive tabs. Does anyone know how to change that behavior or just disable the inactive tab feature entirely?

"Tab closed" popup covers button to close last tab in Firefox for Android

I believe this is a bad interaction between my Device's theme and Firefox's behavior. In Firefox for Android, whenever I close a tab, a "Tab closed. Undo" popup comes up. This in and of itself isn't too bad, but the problem is it's *exactly hovering over the last tab*.

So if I want to close multiple tabs in a row, I can do that for any tab *except* the last one. If I want to close the last two tabs, for instance, which I often do, I have to tap close on one of them, wait 5 seconds for the popup to close, then tap the second.

I've tried tapping on this popup, but it does nothing. It would be nice if tapping on the popup closed it. But ideally, the popup would not obscure the "close tab" button on the last tab

Maybe the popup could push the tabs up, so it's under them rather than on top of them? To be honest, I don't care what the solution is, just offering some.

Sorry to rant - it's just very annoying for what I find to be a very common UI interaction with Firefox for Android. I'd really like to just be able to close my tabs in any order, without thinking about it, and without waiting 5 seconds between tabs for a popup...

I'm using Firefox 90.0.12 on a OnePlus Nord N200 5G running Oxygen OS 11.0.0.0.DE17AA (Android 11).
