when i have more than 10 pages open the app starts crashing, won't let me go back as well and sometimes just reloads. There were also situations in which he grabbed me without me doing anything. I have about 4-5 extensions (in the photo). I'm using Samsung Galaxy S24, my previous was A52 (I had no problem with it)

Hello,

I choose to use FireFox when viewing video content. Only I have this persistent issue when I'm watching/listening a video/podcast and I need to goto a different Tab/Page or use an App or perform a different task, when I return to the tab with paused video it will reload and then the video page will refresh or re-open back to the video list/menu. This causes me to lose my position in the timeline and must find my place again manually. I've noticed this happens after a certain amount of time has passed, not much though, like 60 seconds or so, maybe more. This is frustrating and time consuming and I've noticed this doesn't occur in many chromium based browsers. That said, I strive to avoid google altogether and would rather stick it out with Firefox.

Thank you for reading my question, any advice is appreciated.

On the mobile app for Android (Google Pixel 2 XL, Android version 11), there's this really annoying issue where tabs are constantly duplicated. Normally, it's when I search something on Google (through Firefox). It pulls up the search results, of course. But when I hit a link, here's what happens: the tab is redirected as it should be, but simultaneously another tab is opened, which is a duplicate of the original tab (the one with the search results), and Firefox switches to view that tab, tab 2. So I have to go back to tab 1 to see whatever, and usually I then close tab 2. After this, once I've been hit a few links on a single tab, caused that tab to redirect a few times, it stops doing this. I've also noticed a similar issue, specifically with Google images in Firefox. Sometimes, when I open a picture to view it, every time I go to the tab with the picture, it opens a tab of the Google images page (before I selected a picture). This will happen endlessly sometimes, every time I open the tab to view the picture, meaning I never actually get to see the picture.

I am writing to request assistance with an issue I am encountering on the latest version of the Firefox browser for Android. My goal is to open specified pages in the same tab using Intent from a third-party custom application. However, I have observed that different URLs open in separate tabs, contrary to my expectations.  Current Implementation:  Here is the code snippet I am currently using: java: Intent intent = new Intent(Intent.ACTION_VIEW); intent.setData(uri); intent.putExtra(Browser.EXTRA_APPLICATION_ID, packageName); startActivity(intent); Expected Behavior:  I expect different URLs to open in the same tab without opening new tabs. This functionality is crucial for my application.  Issue Background:  I have researched similar issues and found that users have had comparable needs using Browser.EXTRA_APPLICATION_ID. Unfortunately, it appears that Firefox has not fully addressed this functionality. The EXTRA_APPLICATION_ID is a feature that modern browsers should ideally support to enhance user experience and maintain continuity within a single tab.  References:  I have referred to the following discussions and issues for additional context:  Mozilla Support Forum: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1364869 GitHub Issue: https://github.com/mozilla-mobile/fenix/issues/23329 Request:  I kindly request that the Firefox team consider adapting this functionality officially or provide an alternative solution if it has already been addressed. Any relevant documentation or guidance on achieving this behavior would be highly appreciated.  Thank you for your time and assistance.

I have Firefox sync set up for my desktop and Android. For the past moth or so Firefox on Android can't send tabs to my desktop as it says "No devices connected". Despite this I can send tabs from my desktop to the Android install.

I am using the latest ESR on Windows, and have used both the latest main release and beta versions of Firefox. This issue has been ongoing for several versions. Full uninstall and removal of local files for both devices has not helped, neither has signing in an out. It seems that the Android side simply cannot see there's other devices period.

How do I dublicate a tab in the android app as I would in the flatpak/desktop application?

(I do know that I can create a new tab, copy the adress from the old tab, paste it into the adressbar of the new tab and hit enter, but this doesn't keep the "forward/backwards history" as on desktop, and it is really slow.)

I have to use a payroll app for android that logs in on the default browser, mine being Firefox. After logging in on Firefox, I am redirected to the app. The issue is the tab on Firefox doesn't close, so every time I open Firefox it takes me to the payroll app before I can close the tab or even do anything. Restarting my phone seems to fix the issue, but that's unrealistic to have to do that every time I open an app that logs in through the default browser.
