I think it would be more useful to use the collection as your own navigation. This needs to be 1. The ability to adjust the order of collections 2. Can purchase and adjust the order of the internal website of the collection set 3. The ability to rename the names of various websites in the collection. I'm a big fan of using favorites for sites I visit frequently such as YouTube, BBC Home.... I always categorize them to make it easier to find and visit them. I know Firefox can add sites to popular sites, but these sites are out of order, all at the top, and hard to find when using them.

Without any difference in functionality the grid view doesn't make much sense to me. For a long time Firefox was the preferred browser on my phone, mainly because it was the only one that supported manual tab reordering. The fact is that I often have a lot of Web pages open in tabs, and I plan to read them later. With Firefox I could quickly set the priority of reading, moving tabs up or down. Suddenly Mozilla made the tabs unmovable and introduced collections instead. Collections are convenient, but don’t replace manual tab reordering. They are great for routine tasks. But on phones, the vast majority of routine tasks are performed by their own applications, so, collections can only be useful for news and forums. However, even while reading the news, I open several tabs that I often need to rearrange. Thus, Firefox became much less attractive to me. Around the same time, Google’s Chrome made tabs movable and even introduced groups of tabs to make browsing more convenient. I recently realized that I now prefer Chrome. I only open Firefox when I need to listen to music videos in background or access my bookmarks and Firefox accounts. Will Mozilla team ever again return manual change the order of tabs?

I've used Chrome for years but I considered using Firefox for android because of add on feature. But I found it frustrating to use because it was frequently slower to load websites like Twitter and had issues with videos crashing. I'm also trying Firefox nightly which works slightly better, but still has issues with video playback on websites

So, the problem is exactly what the title describes. Videos would start playing immediately upon opening in a new tab. The issue appeared a couple days ago. I haven't changed any settings in firefox or in YouTube. Also, a friend of mine tried on his own computer to play videos in a new tab using chrome and the same thing happened, videos don't start. I guess it's a YT problem, but I would like a more experienced opinion. Googling didn't help, as every result was either very old, or it had to do with browser/account settings. Any help is appreciated, thanks a lot in advance!

Websites that try to stick elements at the top of the screen, produce a jittery gap effect when you scroll up and down on Firefox Android.

Happens for Reddit threads, for example. This gives me a headache.

This issue mostly occures when I'm using my tablet (Tab S6) horizontally. I do not notice this on my mobile phone (Note 9) currently, it used to happen a few months ago after the major changes were made. It occures 100% of the time on YouTube when not in fullscreen mode. It occurs every once in a while when in fullscreen mode.

For other websites it occurs randomly.

Switching between desktop mode and mobile mode does not make any difference. Restarting the browser does not make a difference. Reinstalling the browser does not make any difference.
