Hi.

Maybe I havent yet got used to the new tabs, and with time it will be fine, but currently my experience is rather annoying. Yeah, sorry, it sounds silly to use "annoying" as an argument, ...but:

# Ideological issues:

  • Why would you completely change from conventional UI at all, without even any pros in the new solution!? E.g., the only reason why most text editing tools share the same interface over decades is the fact that "most text editing tools share this interface". Thus it is apriory intuitive to use. Some people may use something like Vim, ...but then thay install Vim. And you wount appreciate to get your favorite Notepad turning into something like Vim (you will be simply annoyed due to broken ituition (lets ignore here the pros of Vim)).
  • If I remember correctly, in previous versions tabs were hidden (unless you scroll upwards), so most of the time thay didn't block the view ...so what is the reason/purpose of moving them away from the top pannel to begin with? ...here I must mention that I use it on tablet (and I dont have a smartphone to check it out there), and I can believe that it is easier to navigate in the new vertical layout compared to the horisontal one (if people prefer to hold the phone in vertical orientation; I dont know, seriously). But still, why wouldnt you just accomplishe old interface with that small square button to open the new tabs interface, rather than replacing it completely?
  • What is the point of Collections? ...they are Bookmarks?

# Real issue:

  • When I open tabs being on the, e.g., second page counting from the end(or top in that vertical layout), and I scroll upward to find the next tab (I have to scroll since the topmost visible tab in that layout is the current tab) the whole widget (the box with the list of tabs) gets collapsed by half (so that the top of the widget is at the middle of the screen). It seems like another silly complain, but when you need to switch between a few latest tabs often, you'll be ready to smash you device with the wall. Note: maybe you need to open many tabs to reproduce it.

I love Firefox, and Im not going to switch from it in any case. I just hope to help you in this strange way (...also it is not the most efficient one).

Best Regards, Ivan

Desktop mode GoogleDrive videos are not true desktop mode video!

Whenever I try to play a GDrive video in desktop mode, the video player doesn't show more control options as they show in desktop or in other browsers if desktop mode is enabled. I'm sending screenshot of a GDrive video in Firefox desktop mode and Opera desktop mode to help you understand the problem better. You will see that opera desktop mode has more video player options as if it's true desktop mode but same isn't the case with firefox as it doesn't show options to control speed of video or change resolution.

Android Facebook Desktop mode won't "show more" to page down

I'm using an Android phone, Android 8.1.0.

Facebook pages besides my home and profile pages in desktop mode allow me to click on "Show more" to page down on a page I'm visiting, but it remains on the first page or goes to the first page.

I can't get past the first page unless I switch off desktop mode. Then it doesn't allow anything but "like" as an interaction with a post.

This might be hardware specific since I just switched back to an older phone from an Android also version 8.1.0. This is a Motorola E5 (XT1920DL) software variant tracfone, kernel (gcc version 4.8) The phone without the issue is an LG L423DL software version L423DL10p.

I don't expect an answer since it's so specific to this odd case. I want you to be aware so testers can poke around.

Thank you very much for your help and hard work. I appreciate you.

My search on your web site produced dozens of recommended pages for "safe mode firefox android" yet a 3rd party site states there is no safe mode for Firefox on phones or tablets. After apparently wasting time following your suggestions regardless of the feature why can't you simply directly return that result? If it's not possible direct me to the page that states that. I've got a broken login problem now on 2 sites with no explanation or browser response. I see your historical statement page on Firefox apps lists some dates and references "this year" in an article like so many that's not dated. Any information is only as valid as it's date. It's disappointing that Mozilla doesn't recognize and require that.
