Hi, I am pretty hopeful about the new FF with GeckoView. Using it for a bit it seems pretty good, but there are a few issues (79.1.0-beta.1)

First of all, there have been some layout issues, particularly noticeable on Twitter (I do not use apps where a viable mobile site exists). On Twitter, if I press the "retweet" icon it has a little slider that comes up from the bottom with options to just retweet or retweet with comment. In this version, but not in 68.11.0, that slider jitters up and down a bit. Usually if you scroll up or down slightly it then stabilizes, but even then it can be hard to hit the correct option, as if the visual and the interaction area are not quite aligned.

Aside from that there are some UI/UX issues.

On site where there are apps available (bing, twitter, FB, others), FF puts a blue dot notification badge on the triple dot dropdown menu, if you open it it will have an item to "open in app" or "download app" (depending on if installed or not). I don't mind the menu item being there, even though I almost never want it, but I need a way to turn off that blue dot - all such notification badges are very distracting to me, I either respond to them right away (e.g. messages) or I turn them off totally.

The other big issue is tabs, the newer tab layout wastes far too much space, the one in FF 68 was much better... and though I mostly hate taking UI direction from Chrome, mobile tabs is one rare case of them doing it well. Either of those layouts would be much better than the FF79 tab layout.

Oh, and just to make sure... whatever you do, please don't get rid of the option to put the address on the top, I really need that one. I hate to use a Blink browser, but I *will* switch if the URL bar is forced to the bottom.

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.

Hi all,

I want to propose a simple, but very convenient feature. The issue is when a user downloads something, then download icon appears and available to click. After clicking on this icon context menu appear with a list of downloads and "Show All Downloads" button, but without the "Clear Downloads" button! So the user has to click "Show All Downloads" to open downloads window, then click "Clear Downloads", and then close the downloads window. 4 clicks vs 2 clicks. And this is a common action, very annoying to do this every time. Can I hope to see this in Firefox someday?

I'm using DWService.net (a Teamviewer-like System) to access my computers and server.

The screensharing function is fully webbased and also works from mobile browsers.

Today, my Firefox for Android got updated to version 79.0.2 (Build #2015755339), and since then I noticed a weird behavior:

When I connect to a computer with Dwservice and do a click, the cursor re-centers to the screen of the mobile phone.

On the 1st picture, I clicked the minimize button and right afterwards the cursors jumps to the position shown in the 2nd one.
