Hi there

Since the new version of Firefox on Android launched, everytime I select a new Bookmark it opens a new tab.

If possible, I'd like to change it so opening a new Bookmark simply opens it in the last tab I was using.

Is there a way of doing this

Regards

With the previous Firefox on Android, I could go into open apps on my phone, swipe to close Firefox, and it would close the app and all the tabs I had open would close as well. I've recently updated to the new Firefox on Android and this no longer works. Doing this will close the app but not the open tabs.

You can set it up so that if you press 'quit' within the app, this will close all the open tabs and the app. However, it only looks like it closes the app and if you go into open apps on your phone, you'll see Firefox as still being open.

So rather than being able to close the app and all open tabs in one quick action, I now have to go into the menu in the app, press quit, then check open apps and swipe to close Firefox. Please sort this out and make it as simple and easy as it was before.

Tabs are impossibly clunky, the two tap to change tabs is not enjoyable, I preferred the tab bar and it was much easier and intuitive to use. Why would you change such a fundamental change? Poor decision.

Can I turn off the using tabs and collections part of the program. I do like the fact they don't close and stay open in the back ground for many reasons. I keep having to close 20 or 30 tabs i find . Do not want to make any collection of them. I would like them to close when I close browser or window. Just go with open new window not tabs. It is eating up data and memory leaving them hanging around. Also leaving open web pages is hackers entrance.

The latest version of Firefox for Android has changed the default behavior on opening the browser. Before, it would open the tab/screen that was open when the previous session was ended. Now, it opens a Firefox home page.

How do I get it to open the tab that was open when the last session was closed? I've searched through the settings and there doesn't seem to be one to configure this.

If I have more than 3 tabs open, and I'm viewing tab 1, 2 or 3 I can't scroll back up to tabs 4, 5, ect. It wants to lower the tabs viewer instead of letting me scroll back up. If I'm viewing tab 4 or greater, I can see all the lower numbered tabs, but not tab 5. The only workaround I have now is, ironically, opening a new tab, tapping on the three dots in the upper right and tapping "Help," which opens a new tab and allows me to see the tabs below it.

Lost tabs, along the top. Can't find a way to get them back. Nothing else is as easy to switch back and forth.

Also javescript not enabled. It was, was using a cert in screen, now the same screen won't open, due to JavaScript. Try about:config, won't open either. Any help?

Since the update of the new Firefox for android I am experiencing the worst possible experience opening a new tab. Let's say that I have

Foo Bar Baz

In my Tab panel

If I open a link from Bar in a new tab and open the Tab panel I still see

Foo Bar Baz

But, if I scroll, I "found" the new Qux bar on the top of the list!

This is very frustating... I expect that opening the tab pane I see Qux on the bottom of the list!

Btw with the new version there is no about:config anymore so I don't know how to customize this behavior

Hi I have been happy a Firefox user for 15 years. The reason I moved to Firefox from Internet Explorer all those years ago was that a friend showed me how to have several tabs open in one browser window on my PC. Great! I was hooked. I now use Firefox on my laptop, phone and tablet. On my Android tablet, a Samsung S5e, the recent update has just taken my tab bar away and that has made it unusable for me. Real shame as I will now move to another browser on that. On my Android phone, the tabs are still accessible, but instead of being tiled, there is a list so I only see half the number (typically 5 instead of 10). That is not ideal, but just about manageable.

Can you fix the tab issue on my tablet, or can I revert back to the previous version of Firefox for Android?

Many thanks Martin

I seem to recall there used to be a section of history that allowed you to reopen recently closed tabs if you accidentally closed one, but I can't find this option in new Android Firefox. Additionally, I can't find a way to search the history and history appears to only go back 24 hours anyway.

Has this feature just been removed?

I used to be able to arrange my open tabs in the previous version of firefox by pressing for a few seconds and then dragging to the location I wanted to park it. Now I can't figure out how to do that in the newest version of FF Android. I haven't been enjoying using the new version at all. Where's a good tutorial? Thanks.

Hello,

Can I somehow configure the sequence in which the new tabs are opened?

It would be nice to have new tabs opened in downwards order, instead of upwards. I think that older versions of Firefox for Android supported that by default.

If not, can we atleast configure that if we i.e. open x amount of new tabs, to have the first link ordered as the first upward tab, second opened link as the second upward tab and so on... Default configuration places the last opened link as the first upward tab in the sequence and the first opened link as the xth tab in the sequence.

Best regards.
