I wonder if there is an option to set the url bar to autohide after the page is loaded? Using firefox on a 3.5" screen is less user friendly, since the url bar takes up enough space to bug the users (well at least me). Can't it be made as it is on the default Android 4.0 browser or similar?

I've installed a few search engines as add ons in Firefox Mobile, and want to change the order they are listed in.

I'd expect this to be a simple drag and drop (I believe Opera Mobile allows search engines to be reorded by drag and drop), but that doesn't work.

How to I change the order in which search engines appear?

Hi there,

Can anyone tell me how to stop firefox for android unloading tabs it thinks are in the background and not being used?

Here's the situation - I had about 5 tabs open in firefox on my Galaxy Note (around 1GB memory) and no other applications open. 4 were from a forum site (few/no graphics, nothing fancy in the page layout, shouldn't have large RAM requirements). I was writing a long post, I opened the fifth tab and performed a google search, dipped into wikipedia to check something, then went back to my post. I went through each of the other tabs to get there as the thumbnails all looked the same. Each one had been unloaded from memory (zombified) and was reloaded fresh, losing all the stuff I had been writing and seemingly knocking the others out of memory. This meant that by the time I found the right tab again what I had been writing was lost.

This behaviour is annoying, not just because you lose form data, but also for slow connections and metered connections it re-grabs the entire page, wasting time and data allowance. The entire point of background tabs (for me) is that the data is there waiting to be read, it is not just a bookmark.

I understand why the developers did this, to save memory on android devices, but it's far too aggressive.

Is there an about:config setting that allows me to stop this behaviour? Is there any way to stop firefox doing this?
