Hello, This is the second time all open tabs were closed after a update. What the hell! In the past there were never that kind of problem. You don't know how much work that is for to reopen all tabs again. Why does that happen?

Option to Rename Shortcut While Installing Web App (as Add to Home Screen behaves)

When Adding a Shortcut to the Android Home Screen, it allows you with a pop-up option to Rename the Shortcut before placing it on your Home Screen.

However, when attempting to Install a Progressive Web App (from compatible Web App web sites), and clicking Install, it does NOT give you the opportunity to Rename the Shortcut.

In contrast, Chrome/Android allows the name change in both cases (non-Web App and Web App sites).

Is this feature in the works on FireFox Android?

Is there a work-around to Rename Shortcuts either before or after placing them on the Home Screen ?

The new search setting on the address bar is great especially after you decided to diminish your app by only showing me 2 history in an update a year ago. Now i can just search my history again with more than 2 results. However, i want it defaulted to search my history. Why is Google the default and how can i change it?

I was browsing through Firefox and as usual I had more than 30 tabs open. I have set them to never close and move old tabs to inactive ones. I was watching a video in a tab and closed Firefox then open another app in cellphone and then after some hours I reopen Firefox and there was only 1 tab (wordreference.com) What happened to the other 30 tabs? They're nowhere. I looked for support and there are many threads and videos for the desktop version but almos inexistent for Firefox Android version. There must be an explanation for this issue and perhaps a solution or workaround. Thank you.

Firefox for Android re-opens tabs

I'm not sure if this behavior is intended or not.. but it seems unusual and like some sort of glitch.

Firefox re-opens tabs after the browser is closed. Say I hypothetically open the app to make a Google search, open a few tabs from the results, do some research, then close the most recent 4 tabs and then immediately close the entire app.

Upon my next opening of the app, I'm served the New Tab screen. Tapping the square icon that brings up my list of currently open tabs, reveals that those 4 tabs from my previous session have returned. This has persisted through the last few updates, and I've just been living with it for a month or two. If I close a bunch of tabs at once and then keep browsing, sometimes I'm able to keep some of them dead, but some will come back I think. It's inconsistent and strange.

Any help is appreciated.

Kinda just throwing this out here. I have over 5 thousands tabs open on mobile. If I had to wager a guess I'd say I have at least 10,000 if not 20,000. I did actually count to the 5,000 for certain. My main question is I just wanna know if there is a way to definitively know how many I have. I know on the desktop version you can and I have done so, but that wont tell you how many are open on mobile. When ever I try to share all tabs my firefox immediately crashes, all the tabs will reopen afterwards. I just really wanna know how many tabs I have so I write down the number and get to closing them. Thank you for reading.

The browser for android is excellent in a lot of ways, but I find it really irritating when I open the app and see tabs I already closed in my previous sessions open in the new session. You end up having to close the same tab multiple times because each time you leave the app and return, the tabs are automatically reopened. Sometimes as many as 2 or 3 previously closed tabs are reopened automatically whenever the app is opened next. I just find this quirk highly annoying and I wonder if there's a fix for this

share all tabs PDF saving doesn't work

Hi, I have a plenty of tabs accumulated in my FF on Android, v119.1.1 (Build #2015984795), 2a75e15258+ GV: 119.0.2-20231108221453 AS: 119.0. Within Tabs menu there is S… (read more)

Hi,

I have a plenty of tabs accumulated in my FF on Android, v119.1.1 (Build #2015984795), 2a75e15258+ GV: 119.0.2-20231108221453 AS: 119.0.

Within Tabs menu there is Share all tabs option. When clicked, the Save as PDF, Print, and typical android sharing options are presented.

Click on Save as PDF does nothing. Sharing to other apps works partially (text list is shared, but some parts of it are not kinks but a concatenated text of tabs titles combined together, not clickable, not https:// part).

The phone has lots of tabs, many of which are deactivated.

I want to backup them and review on bigger screen, but can't do that :)

Sharing to other devices connected via Mozilla account shares only subset of tabs, not sure about the logic, the most recent ones for sure + some deactivated but not all of them.
