I'd like to be able to clear my tabs when I exit the browser on Android. I hate having old tabs open when I start up Firefox on my phone.

Currently to make my tabs close I had to go into my settings, toggle the settings 'Delete browsing data on quit', and toggle everything off except tabs. Except, now it's still a pointless process, I have to go to the 3 dot menu, and tap quit? Why can't there just be an option to clear everything when I close the app (fully from the app draw). It seems to be an option for most other browsers. Clearing after a day isnt ideal either, I'm not sure if it's intentional but the tabs I had open from last night will still be there the next morning.

68.2.1. I used to see the tab list in two columns,about 8 on a screen, now they are in a single column can I can only see 2 on a screen. I have "compact tabs" turned on in the settings and I imagine that is what is supposed to make them in two columns.

Is there any way questions here get migrated to the issue tracker?

We have a media center type computer, with no password to lock it. Sometimes I'd like to send a tab from my phone to this computer. I don't want to log in with my Firefox account on that computer because it's shared. Is there a workaround for my situation?

How to always display tabs on mobile like on a tablet or laptop ?

Hi, I use lineage OS and it allows me in the settings to be in a sort of "high dpi" screen mode and it shrinks all app layouts and it looks great. In firefox it actually enables a sort of "tablet mode", ie when firefox detects that your screen is large enough it displays the tabs at all time in the menu bar at the top. Otherwise on mobile you have to click on a button to make the tabs appear. So the LOS settings tricks firefox into thinking you have a bigger screen (it causes absolutely no issue whatsoever, there is pixel to spare)

I am looking for a way to do this without lineage os's settings, so is there a way to trick firefox into thinking the screen is bigger to make the tabs always on display ?

I tried looking on reddit, in about:config and addons but to no avail.

Do you have any idea ?

Thanks !

Wanting to recover previous tabs.

How can one close the browser then change the sessionstore.js file back to the previous group of tabs named sessionstore-1.js if that is what needs to be done? The browser seems to loose tabs fairly often when exit to another app or after other actions perhaps.

I used to be able to surf the web using Firefox why having some YouTube music playing in the background. I will be on a Google search engine while YouTube play music in the background in another tab. Now when I try to do that and go to another Tab in a Google search engine, the YouTube music shuts off completely. What happened to this? I really like that feature so much. Can you guys bring it back? So i can play my music and surf the web at the same time. Simultaneously. And if you do bring it back when will you bring it back? Thank you.
