I have had this problem on two separate midrange samsung phones now: after about an hour of browsing, firefox slows down considerably. Pages take a long time to load and tapping input registers erratically, sometimes i tap a link and after a few seconds a different link opens, as though the tap was registered from a different spot on the screen. This is happening even on a brand new phone, and after emptying the cache. I wish I could keep using this app because of privacy concerns but it is genuinely unusable for me now. This problem has cropped up in the past half a year

I just lost several hundred tabs on Firefox mobile right after it updated itself. The most recent tabs show only ten of those tabs, which were all opened and closed today and aren't part of what I need to restore.

How do I get my tabs back? I've seen no 'restore previous session' option. My laptop only shows the few I have open now. What do I do to restore them?

how to stop android firefox google from auto redirect to YouTube when clicking on a drop-down search result

When googling stuff they changed something to where it now opens youtube and autoplays a video when I click on a search result drop-down arrow(image 1). It just it to dropdown to give more info and I could choose to watch the video if I wanted to, like it used to(like image 2). It is getting annoying to switch back to Firefox every other time. For clarification, I don't want to completely disable redirecting but just change it back to how it was. Can't find any setting to change it, does anyone know how to fix this?

Open a website via an installed link on home screen -> History not saved

My favourite weather app is not working on my phone, but they also have a website, so I decided to use the 'install' option from the menu to install a direct link to the website.

When I use this website in Firefox, the first question I get is my location. When I open the website again this is not asked again.

But when I use the installed link on the homescreen it ask's my location every time, like this is not saved or something like that, a bit the same as 'ingognito mode'.

Is there a possibility that when I used the installed link on my homescreen that it save's my location (history) so that it not asked every time I open it ?

Firefox just used almost a GB by just opening it! I only typed a Google search, and the next moment my phone tells my I'm out of data!

Note that this is foreground data, not background data. I googled and found answers about media playing in the background, but I haven't watched anything recently, so no streaming link should be active. I installed Ublock origin so I hope that might help.

Attach is my Firefox data usage for the past week of barely using it, except for an occasional Google search.
