I'm still learning how to use a touchscreen Android device (Moto G4 phone, just used as a device, at home, no SIM card). I don't yet know the names for various functions on the device so apologies for using the wrong terms. When I "Quit" Firefox Daylight v 84 7 Jan, on Android 12 (the latest version my Moto will take) (swipe down, press the 3 dots icon next to the tabs icon, select Quit, and it closes then deletes my browsing history as set in settings and appears to close down), the next time I press the square Moto icon (in the group of three - the back arrow, the circle for minimising, and the square to reveal which apps are running, up pops Firefox again, along with any other running apps. If I then press the x at the top rhs of the not maximised firefox window, it goes away and does not reappear again unless I start it with the home screen icon or click a browser link. It appears as if "Quit" doesn't close firefox but the x on the non-maximised window does? Can anyone explain this to me - please be gentle. Does Quit not mean quit? Should I really be closing Firefox by pressing the x icon and just ignoring the Quit command? Thanks for the help.

I'm using Firefox v79.0.5 on Android 10, and a browser behavior has apparently changed.

Used to be that if I opened a link that was active on a tab, that tab would become current.

Now, when I open a link, it always opens a new tab, so that I have 2 (or more) tabs displaying the same link.

Is there a control/setting I can use to restore the old behavior?

Thanks in advance.
