Firefox for Android

My tab list has suddenly reversed. New tabs now appear at the bottom of the list. It was something I did. I mistapped something. I cannot find a way to restore the previous behavior, with new tabs at the top of the list and older tabs below. Can someone please help?

After a recent update, maybe 95 or possibly 94, I've begun to experience a small but very annoying issue with using the URL/searchbar.

I'll usually just enter my query, e.g "test", but this now opens 2 tabs, 1. with the actual search result page and 1 tab that opens a new search result page. This happens when using different search engines. I've tried re-installing the app, clearing all cache, storage, removed my Firefox Sync account etc. with no changes.

I've recorded a video of the behaviour: https://photos.app.goo.gl/ZLEZ2omVJaWXTEaM8

Now that you've elected BidenFox Android as your browser you will receive free tabs every day, all day. You get free tabs if you open a Bookmark and free tabs if you open Top Sites. And because you've upgraded without questioning our policies, we'll give you free tabs whenever you open anything in any Collection.

That's right, we've given you Collections! We want you to stop using those Trumpmarks, the trusted and private URL's you rely on throughout your day. We didn't spend anytime on making Trumpmarks more useful, like the ability to rearrange them in any order, something you've asked for year after year. So forget Trumpmarks and use Top Sites or Collections because you can never get enough free tabs.

And a bonus: If you have shortcuts on your phones Home Page, every one will open a new tab. More importantly, we now govern the behavior so it exits to Firefox, not back to your phones Home Page like past versions.

Thank you for electing BidenFox for Android as your browser. Only 4 more years until the next one.

In Huawei and that firefox newer version, if you open many tabs, like 8, you cannot slide between them, uponopening Firefox again, let's say tomorrow. It does not allow to slide with finger and switch from let's say first tab to eight. You see info in right bottom corner that there are 8 tabs, but you can not get those to open. You can not switch from visible tabs to those it visible at the moment.

Hello, Recently I encounterd a strange bug wherein I simply cannot open a new tab in Firefox for Android. Everytime I do so, it just resets the same page to the default homepage. Same on both regular and private browsing.

I have gone through the forums and found nothing useful for this situation. So far I've tried: 1. Removing all extensions 2. Completly reinstalling Firefox from both the Play Store and F Droid. 3. Upgrading to the beta and Nightly versions to see if it's just a bug

No luck, I'm honestly stumped as what to do. Currently the jank setup I have is to open some random link in a new tab and then look up what I want in said tab, but this cannot continue.

I'm on a Poco F1, running Android 11 with Firefox for Android v87.0.0-rc.1

Like a week ago an update came and made tabs become inactive on Firefox nightly Android. That wouldn't be a problem, you can just turn on a setting so that they never get closed, but it's really anoying when your scrolling through the many open tabs and your new tab is at the very bottom in the inactive tabs section. If you open and activate the tab than it become active, but if I open many tabs or if I don't want to activate a tab that I just opened I will have to search for in in the inactive tabs. Does anyone know how to change that behavior or just disable the inactive tab feature entirely?

You used to be able to reorganize tabs and other items by doing a "long press" then a "drag". You can't do that anymore.

Also "collections" cannot be reordered. The newest one is always at the top of the list.

Items within collections cannot be reordered. Whatever is added is appended to the bottom.

When you open a link from a collection, or a series of links, or if you move between tabs a lot, the new tabs that get opened are seemingly in random places. It would be much better if they all opened at the "top" of the tab list, or at least grouped together somehow.

People who heavily rely on tabs to keep track of things really have no hope in the new Android layout. Basic tools to manage and maintain organization are missing. It's pretty bad if you need to have a lot of tabs open, and you have no way to group, reorder, or prioritize them.

In the latest (1/27) version of Firefox Nightly, a newly created tab always shows the "most visited sites", even when this feature has been switched off in Settings >> Customise >> Home.

On all previous versions, this worked correctly.

What's the best way to raise this with the developers? GitHub and/or Bugzilla?

Hi Everybody! I use Firefox Nightly 91 for Android and I wish to know how I can reverse the ordering of my tabs.

I don't want to rearrange my tabs (which seems not possible and has been answered here several times already). I just want to have the possibility to reverse the ordering: currently, my "latest" tabs are at the bottom of the list but I want them to be at the top. Just that.

By the way, if I remember well it was like I wish it to be on a previous version but was suddenly reversed after an update.

If there is an appropriate entry for that in about:config, I'll be a happier user!

Thanks in advance!

Hey I think version 69 still had the 'Recently closed tabs' view, but I cant find it on version 81. I already searched this site and also googled it.

I closed a tab accidentaly that i opened some time ago. So searching through my history won't do it since it was an article of a site where i opened and read like 20 articles, I also cant remember the name of it.

I guess it was removed in favour of a more simplistic UI? If so I would really like the devs to consider adding that back in, I know that there is an option for reopening the tab right after closing it, but it is possible to miss it or your device just bugging/slowing down on you when you do this. This happened a few times to me.

Thanks in advance!

In v.96.2.0, when a new tab is opened (either with the "+" or menu "new tab"), I do get a new tab - but in this version I no longer get the 3 vertical dots beside the address bar to allow me to, for instance, access my bookmarks or history. My choice is limited to the bookmarks already on the homepage. This was not the case with previous versions.

If, after I create the new tab, I do select one of the homepage bookmarks - say, Google search - the 3 vertical dots reappear and Incan get at my bookmarks ... but now I've got an unwanted extra tab open.

Weird.

How can I permanently disable multiple tabs on mobile Firefox? Or force it to only use 1 tab? Multiple tabs is so 9ncredibly annoying and pointless, it just clutter things up, and I don't want to have to go through extra steps to get a refreshed page or continually close tabs Im not using but that clutter the screen.

There MUST be a way to disabke them???

I appreciate the hard work, for developing and continue developing the MOZILLA FIREFOX. I am an information seeker. I usually search for information about various things, when I found it out, I simply minimize the browser and when I get free time I will jump into the results. So my problem is the TAB AUTO REFRESHING. I am aware of the add-on 'TAB AUTO REFRESH' but it's not available in ANDROID (I am using one), so anyone have alternative way, please respond. I value your feedback very much.

P.S :- Thank you for your time and response in advance.
