Hello! I love Firefox, especially when I can hide all unwanted distractions. I always want a blank homepage, but this is currently impossible to obtain without completely disabling History. I always want History to exist in the Firefox Menu, but I still want to have a blank homepage. As it currently exists, I'm forced to be distracted by this big, oftentimes useless menu every time I open a new tab. Please enable this ability, it makes no sense as its currently designed.

Hello!

I have just migrated from chrome to Firefox, and I am completely loving Firefox. However, there is just one big drawback for me.

On chrome, you can swipe across the bottom/top tab bar to easily switch to a different tab. Howevee, this does not seem to be available in Firefox.

It would be the perfect browser if it could do this!

Please let me know if there is any way to request this as a feature, or if I'm being stupid and not noticing a setting!

Thanks,

Oliver

The previous answers (ex: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1185193) all say to go to 'settings > general > home > top sites'. There is no 'top sites' sub area. The sections are as follows:

'Set a Homepage': 'about:home' Also use for new tabs (off) Panels (unclickable label) Add-ons (unclickable label) Content updates: Wi-Fi


Please let me know how I can turn off the suggestions from Pocket and Highlighted pages. I still want it to show my Top Pages that I visit. I do not care to see any recommendations. I use other services to discover content and certainly don't need it every time I try to open a new web browser window.

Hi. I'm using Firefox Preview for Android. Thanks for developing it.

I'd like to ask someone to change button layout in page menu. It means the buttons to move forward, to bookmark, to share, and to reload. I think that if the layout is changed, I will glad to it. I suggest an order: move forward, reload, bookmark, and share. I'm not able to explain why I'm feeling uncomfortable, but I often wander about finding where the share button is.

Thank you for reading it.

Hi,

I've just had to restore my Pixel 4 from a Google backup after a hardware fault. When I go to the screen to open a new blank tab, Firefox has reverted to displaying thumbnails for all the existing tabs. I like to keep quite a few tabs open, so I had changed a setting so that Firefox displayed a list of already open tabs, rather than showing them as a series of thumbnails. Unfortunately, as a result of having to re-install Firefox, I've lost that particular change.

Can someone remind me what I have to change to get back to the list display. I had it working just fine, but I cannot remember how I did it, and I can't even find the solution after a fair bit of Googling.  :-(

Thanks,

Mike
