Firefox on my android tablet was just upgraded, but now I cannot see all of my open web pages next to each other on top of the screen anymore! Now I first have to press the number at the right and then I see all the tiles on the left, but it was much quicker to see all of the open web pages at the same time at the top, so I could switch much quicker. Is there a way to get the old layout back? Thank you!!!

Since today, my updated Firefox for Android doesn't just open the tabs I always enjoy. In stead it comes up with a highly annoying collections menu. Is there a way to stop this behaviour?

When I open my browser, I want it to open the few tabs I closed it with. I do not want new choices, new clicks etc.

Zooming in/out broken in the new Firefox Browser

Hi, After the new browser launched, I have had a lot of problems with zooming in and out of websites. When zooming, the whole webpage can scroll all the way to the top or bottom after the release of the fingers. If am am very careful, only lifting one finger at a time, I can avoid this. But this worked perfectly in the previous version, so I hope someone can look at this. This happens to all kinds of webpages. And no, I have not activated the setting to force zoom in all webpages.

Also, when zooming in, waiting a little bit and then zooming out, the portion that was previously out of frame is now just a white plain when zoomed out, until I make some corrections by zooming more.

When zooming, it also breaks websites that uses overlays to show something. For example the slideshow of pictures here: https://www.nrk.no/urix/verden-i-bilder-_-2020-1.14845569?index=0#album-1-15131194

Thank you for all the great work that is put into this browser! :D

Hello, my smartphone always says 'low on memory storage'. When I check the settings I see Firefox is using more than 1.2 gigabyte of storage. I have less than 15 bookmarks and Firefox should delete history, cache and opened tabs when it closes. What is the content of the data ('données' in French) folder which is 1.2 GB ?. I don't dare to clean it because I guess it would clear me allu bookmarks and other settings, but my personal settings should not have a 1 GB size... How to free this space securely ? Thank you.

Hi,

first of all, thank you for sparing your free time working on the FF. The new Dark Mode is great. Unfortunately that's the only improvement in this version 79.x.x.

I'm using FF for over a decade now and used it on Android as soon as it was possible. Unfortunately with the 79.x.x "update" for Android, especially in the release arc, imho you lost your way. FF has always been a browser with many customization and tweaking options and I had hoped it would get closer and closer to the possibilities of the Desktop version with every update you guys provided. So I hope you can understand that this feels to me, like I got kicked in the groins and, when lying on the ground in agony, I got hit with a 6KG sledgehammer right to the face.

If you provide these kind of major updates, especially to the UI, at least give the user a chance to just go back to the previous design and features (i.e. the tabs layout, the freaking "Exit" button, where cached data could be deleted on exit, and of course the "about:config" in all versions and not only in nightly)

Please consider a downgrade option or an ESR of the previous FF version for Android.

Thank you for taking your time reading this.

Best regards IronGibbet

P.S. sorry for ranting in public, I couldn't find an appropriate email address.

If a website sends some kind of message, the displayed link of the website in the address bar stays the same but the content of the page is some other tab. You can continue browsing in the wrong tab. After clicking a link it shows the new link in the address bar.

Problem : no continuous work possible, after every message you have to change the tabs back to the tab you are in

I have just been updated to the completely new Firefox Android. How can I make bookmarklets work in the whole new Firefox Android?

I use(d?) Zotero's bookmarklet daily on Firefox Mobile on Android: https://www.zotero.org/downloadbookmarklet

Since the new update, bookmarks do not show up over the current page when tapping the address bar: they only appear as a separate new tab, preventing JavaScript bookmarklets to work.

Does anyone has a workaround? Am I missing something? This massive, unasked for, feature-breaking update of Firefox on Android is really disruptive.

Thanks for any help!
