On my S7 with Android 8.0, every time I start Firefox (even after rebooting the phone), it loads the previous session's pages. In several places I have read that I should click on the three bar menu icon in the top corner and select "options". I have a 3 dot (not bar) icon. When I click on it, I get a menu that includes "settings" but there is no "options". The menu I do get has, "New tab, New private tab, History, ... Settings, Help"

Any help will be greatly appreciated.

I have different keyboards using your browser. When typing in the address bar, the keyboard has a colon in the bottom line next to the spacebar. Not only is this key never used, its frequently inadvertently hit, perhaps the most annoying thing Ive ever seen. Any help is appreciated.

Hello!

How can I disable these messages and snippets from appearing in the first place?

I have attached some screenshots as examples just in case.

How can i set my new mobile password manager for my android phone to copy all my passwords from my desktop's firefox? Right now, i notice there are only about 8 listed passwords. But my desktop's saved password manager has about 50 listed. This makes me think that the android app is only choosing to remember what i saved directly with my android. I want it to grab all my saved passwords from my desktop too. I tried rechecking my firefox sync options, but only confirmed that i do have that set to automatically sync all my data (including passwords.)

Hello! I love Firefox, especially when I can hide all unwanted distractions. I always want a blank homepage, but this is currently impossible to obtain without completely disabling History. I always want History to exist in the Firefox Menu, but I still want to have a blank homepage. As it currently exists, I'm forced to be distracted by this big, oftentimes useless menu every time I open a new tab. Please enable this ability, it makes no sense as its currently designed.

The previous answers (ex: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1185193) all say to go to 'settings > general > home > top sites'. There is no 'top sites' sub area. The sections are as follows:

'Set a Homepage': 'about:home' Also use for new tabs (off) Panels (unclickable label) Add-ons (unclickable label) Content updates: Wi-Fi


Please let me know how I can turn off the suggestions from Pocket and Highlighted pages. I still want it to show my Top Pages that I visit. I do not care to see any recommendations. I use other services to discover content and certainly don't need it every time I try to open a new web browser window.

Is there any way to adjust the size of the address bar in firefox for android? It is silly to have that tiny little box with things I don't use like voice search and QR code search taking up so much room.

Also, many sites seem to display in desktop mode in FF when other browsers properly show them in mobile view. Toggling desktop view doesn't fix it.

I recently installed latest Firefox for Android from Play store and the pages are usually rendered in a very tiny, unreadable font. I have Extra Large text size in Settings - Display, and the checkbox for Request desktop site is off. None of them have helped to increase font size. If I pinch out, the entire document is zoomed, so I'd have to pan left and right to read the whole line, and that does not help either. I'll appreciate a hint to make pages render in larger font sizes, like in less characters per line.

Hello I use since some months Firefox Beta, at the moment version 37 for Android. There is this gesture to swipe horizontally on a tab and switch tabs:

https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/use-gestures-in-firefox-android and there: For Android 4.1 Jelly Bean and up: You can also swipe left and right on the Awesome Screen to flip through the three tabs.

But this is a pain in the glass! The gesture is not only horizontally but also nearly vertical, so nearly each time I want to scroll down a site, the gesture to switch the tab is wrongly recognized and the tab is gone, I have to switch back.

I am on Samsung Galaxy S4 with 4.4.2 (root).

It would be of great help if it would be possible to just disable this gesture in settings or by any add-on, because this is the most annyoing bug in Firefox beta for Android.
