In the android tablet firefox, when we hit the "+" sign to add new tab, we're automatically taken to the "topsite/bookmarks/history" page. In order to get to the FF Start screen, we'd have to either look for it in the bookmarks or manually type "about:home".

Is there a way to get right to Firefox Start screen at launch of a new tab? After all, it's called the "Start screen".

On my OnePlus One Firefox display a bit like the desktop app: Tabs across the top, back/forward buttons next to the address bar.

I just upgraded to a OnePlus 6 and the UI is totally different. I actually like the desktop-like UI. How do I toggle between the two interfaces?

Screenshots attached.

I've noticed my open tabs do not sync automatically like it does when I move from desktop to my Android device. Example scenario to explain this better:

I'm on my desktop Firefox with several open tabs. Then I pick up my Android device (4.2 Jelly Bean) and open Firefox Android, and I go to open new tab and chose the "Sync" menu, unfortunately the tabs it shows from my desktop device are not up to date at all.

In fact the only way I've found to sync up these tabs is to go on my Android device under Sync -> Firefox Sync -> Menu Button -> Sync Now. Then my tabs update perfect, but shouldn't this just happen automatically, or at least from a "Sync Now" button right in Firefox Android? Am I completely missing something obvious?

Thanks!!

Hi everyone,

I'm using Firefox 18 for Android and I'd like it to restore my previous browsing session on startup. I'm aware of the link on the default home page, but that is not very efficient (and is unusable when firefox is reopened from a link). I've tried setting browser.sessionstore.resume_session and browser.startup.page to no avail. I'd very much appreciate any help.

Thank you.
