Hello guys, greetings!

Firefox for Android is pretty cool, however, when I change for another app and I come back to the browser, it reloads the pages. It's annoying when you need to paste external information (I must to fill a form again or whatever activity). Could you please help me with this issue?

Thank you so much in advance!

Is there a way to search through my open tabs? If not, PLEASE create that feature.

Also, is there a way to see the previous pages that have been opened in a tab? Right now, I have to just keep backspacing through previous tabs hoping to find the one I'm looking for. If not, please ad d a way to view and select previously opened tabs before I start backspacing through them.

Is there a way to sort open tabs, at least alphabetically? If not, that would be a very nice feature to have.

I'm using Android 12.

Thank you for your help.

I open a new tab (link from email or a other page usually). I read the bloody thing. I click the number of open tabs to display all open. I close the tab with the x. It goes away (closes). It gives me the option to undo. I wait until that goes away. I wait few more seconds and swipe down on the "open tabs" frame. It closes and the number says 7. It agrees with what I see open, and the visible content is from tab #7 I wait 5 minutes. I close Firefox and wait 5-10 minutes. I open Firefox... I'm up to 22 now. This has been going on for about a week (at least) now.

In the past before this started happening, occasionally if I was moving too fast it would happen, so I would go slower (I thought cache) and it would work. Now, it's ridiculous.


NOTE : there are 7 tabs I want to keep open for now... I've been trying to close all the rest for some time now!

Hi,

I have a plenty of tabs accumulated in my FF on Android, v119.1.1 (Build #2015984795), 2a75e15258+ GV: 119.0.2-20231108221453 AS: 119.0.

Within Tabs menu there is Share all tabs option. When clicked, the Save as PDF, Print, and typical android sharing options are presented.

Click on Save as PDF does nothing. Sharing to other apps works partially (text list is shared, but some parts of it are not kinks but a concatenated text of tabs titles combined together, not clickable, not https:// part).

The phone has lots of tabs, many of which are deactivated.

I want to backup them and review on bigger screen, but can't do that :)

Sharing to other devices connected via Mozilla account shares only subset of tabs, not sure about the logic, the most recent ones for sure + some deactivated but not all of them.

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.

Hi,

I'm having this issue with clicking on links where when I click a link it opens a new tab but the new tab contains the current page. The link I'm trying to reach opens in the tab I was originally on. I can't see anywhere in the settings a solution to this and haven't seen anyone else have the same issue. Does anyone have a fix or is this a bug?

Thanks

This applies to the latest Firefox for Android version (this issue did not occur with the previous version). I manually closed my tabs and closed the Firefox app when I exit. However, when I open the app again, the previously closed tabs are there as if they were never closed. This is fixed if I delete browsing data but, obviously, this is not an ideal solution. I have tried to attach a short clip of this issue in action but it will not upload. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.

Hello,

This morning, I have accidentally close all my tabs (60+ tabs, which were open for more than 5+ years), while I wanted to reopen a recently closed tab. I suppose that this mistake was due to the sensitivity of the touch screen, since both option are next to each other in the menu.

I see multiple problems here: - There was no dialog asking me if I wanted to close all my tabs. While on Desktop this dialog exists. So for a long time I had no clue what just happened. - As I remember, Firefox did not gave me the opportunity to undo my action.

Now, the question is: How can I reopen all my closed tabs ? The menu "Recently closed tabs" have only 10 items, and those do not belong to the 60+ tabs that have been closed.

Is there a way to reopen all the tabs that I accidentally closed (I do not use Firefox Sync) ?

Thanks in advance

Kinda just throwing this out here. I have over 5 thousands tabs open on mobile. If I had to wager a guess I'd say I have at least 10,000 if not 20,000. I did actually count to the 5,000 for certain. My main question is I just wanna know if there is a way to definitively know how many I have. I know on the desktop version you can and I have done so, but that wont tell you how many are open on mobile. When ever I try to share all tabs my firefox immediately crashes, all the tabs will reopen afterwards. I just really wanna know how many tabs I have so I write down the number and get to closing them. Thank you for reading.

I'm not sure if this behavior is intended or not.. but it seems unusual and like some sort of glitch.

Firefox re-opens tabs after the browser is closed. Say I hypothetically open the app to make a Google search, open a few tabs from the results, do some research, then close the most recent 4 tabs and then immediately close the entire app.

Upon my next opening of the app, I'm served the New Tab screen. Tapping the square icon that brings up my list of currently open tabs, reveals that those 4 tabs from my previous session have returned. This has persisted through the last few updates, and I've just been living with it for a month or two. If I close a bunch of tabs at once and then keep browsing, sometimes I'm able to keep some of them dead, but some will come back I think. It's inconsistent and strange.

Any help is appreciated.
