Hello. I am using the android app well. But while using it, the tabs pile up too much. A new tab also appears when searching in the address bar. A new tab will appear even if you open the parent site. I would like to open a search page or a bookmarks page in an existing tab.

Hello,

as the Firefox Sync is not working with incognito tabs (which is sort of intended), I sometimes stumble on the problem that I opened an URL in incognito mode but find it useful to safe for later reference (be it rereading, quoting or whatever).

Since some time (a few weeks maybe) I found the option to share the incognito tabs gone. I can share regular tabs but the option is not there for the incognito tabs. To test this, I go to the list of open tabs and long-press one of the tabs of interest. Recently, I was able to select some tabs and tap the share icon. This no longer happens.

Was this intentionally removed? I do not see the use-case, especially as it allowed to selectively close multiple tabs quickly.

Thanks

I'm trying to force myself to be able to manage my Firefox tabs better and not just let open tabs pile up over time, and I was interested in the auto-close feature. It would probably be a good idea to have tabs I don't come back around to within a certain period of time auto-close. However, I would also like if some number of tabs could stay open permanenetly without auto-closing. Is there anything specific that can be done to achieve that? Would having tabs auto-close but putting tabs I want permanently open in a tab collection/group work, for example? Or is there no way to achieve this currently?

When I click on any link from the Firefox homepage, the link opens in a new tab. For example, if I:

  • Tap the address bar from an existing tab to get the homepage
  • Tap the Wikipedia link from the "top sites" section of the homepage

Then the Wikipedia page will open in an additional tab. I want it to open in the same tab, because my Firefox session gets cluttered with many tabs that were all opened this same way.

Is it possible to avoid opening new tabs when following links from the homepage (after reaching the homepage from tapping the address bar as described)?

Lost inactive tabs due to crash - any possibility to restore?

Dear Community,

I used for three days the function sync on firefox. In this procedure I wanted to transfer my android tabs to my desktop pc. On my desktop pc I have seen all tabs of my android phone. So I have started to transfer the tabs to my desktop pc. After a short time my mozilla firefox on android crashed and after my restart of my android firefox all inactive tabs were gone.

So this was my first time, when I made this bad experience in over more than 15 years of using firefox. Meanwhile I searched for different solutions, but nothing fitted to my challenge.

I hope really, that somebody could help me:

  • Is there any possibilty to see the cache on the desktop pc from the android data, which was seen in the sync tunnel?
  • Is something saved on the sync cloud, where I could get data from?
  • Is a cache file existing of the sync data?
  • Is there any option of old session restore? If yes, where can I find different backup files on android?
  • Can I connect with e.g. SDK in the developer mode and get files of sessionstore.js? A JASON file of the inactive tabs would be really nice.
  • Any other developer modes, which could be helpful? Trouble Shooting?
  • Can I root the mobile phone afterwards and get hidden files of firefox?
  • Are there any other unvisible places, where the data of deleted inactive files could be find?
  • Can I access data through the android firefox browser?
  • Perhaps you will have a solution through SDK?
  • Do you have other devtools to try? I am fine with remote debugging through usb, if you will have a solution for it.

I appreciate your support and hope to find a solution for my request. I loved firefox for a long time.

Thank you so much.

Kind regards

Using 94.1.2 FF Daylight on Android. Everytime a link is clicked a new tab is made, perhaps every new search too. Whatever it is, too many tabs are being generated by my browsing and I spend a lot of time controlling and reducing way too many tabs. And there's no apparent way to just say go to the link in the same tab, not in settings and about:config is disabled in Daylight FF. I like less tabs and just use the back button. It might be my imagination but newer versions of FF seem setup to make more tabs vs older versions? Anyway, I ask for a way in settings to make less tabs. Thanks.

Hi,

So in the "old" Firefox on android there was a possibility to have links opened in the background. This was removed with the overhaul update and I have been missing it ever since.

Right now I'm using pocket to have the links opened in the background but pocket outright sucks, it never shows the whole proper article and reddit pages are not shown properly either, it even makes those pages unreadable and its not showing the comments.

So to this point I am about to ditch pocket again. But I want to know if Firefox will bring back the background opening or did it purposely removed it so people would use pocket more?

If Firefox is sadly not bringing it back, I do believe Firefox is no longer my go to option and sadly forced to look for a browser that still have the background option.

Please let me know if Firefox will bring this feature back in the near future or not.
