Hello! This is an odd one.

I often read stories on the app, and the app (most of the time) starts the page at the top. Doesn't matter if I was halfway through or almost down at the bottom of the page. 'Opening the app' is also a term I'm using very broadly right now, sometimes the page 'refreshes' if I lock the screen and unlock it a minute later, sometimes it can be me switching to another tab, sometimes it can be me switching to another app and then back a few seconds later. Hell, sometimes I'm just checking out my Recent Apps screen and then, boom, Top Of The Page. So, the app doesn't close, but the page behaves like it does. Site that it happens mostly on is AO3.

Add-ons in use are uBlock origin, Privacy Possum, Privacy Badger, HTTPS Everywhere, Bitwarden, Decentraleyes. Power Saving mode is enabled.

Amid countless issues I have with the new Android version of Firefox, a few stand out as most important:

The tab system. I can no longer move tabs around, this was an essential function. Also, they load from the bottom, even though I immediately switched my address bar back to the top. Also, they don't fill the whole screen. Why? The order of the tabs is newest on top. This makes no sense. Newest tab should always be on the bottom of the list.

Opening a new tab. In the old version, I just had to doubleclick the tab next to the address, and it opened a new tab in less than a second. Now I have to hold the button down and then press again for new tab. It's so much slower.

Bookmarks. In the old version, I could swipe left or right on the new tab screen and go into bookmarks/history immediately. Now, I have to open them through the menu. Also, they open very slowly, 3-4 seconds or so, instead of instantly. Another thing is that the size of the font in bookmark tab is bigger for no apparent reason.

Overall, it's a worse user experience in every way I can imagine. The only thing I don't hate about it is that they didn't remove the option to put the address bar back on top. The old Android version was almost perfect in my eyes, with only 1 issue I can even remember having with it, and it wasn't that important. It's a shame that it's been discarded for this mess.
