Been using Nightly for a while and have always had "Close Tabs Manually" set. Noticed this morning that many tabs were missing and others were 'inactive' and soon to be closed.

The setting is still "manual", and changing it to monthly/back to manual still shows the 'inactive tabs' panel.

My favorite add-ons aren't available with this newest version. I while ago I had prevented the update so that I could help using them. Now I've gotten a new ANDROID device and I don't know what version I need. I do know that I was able to look for add-ons unlike this version that appears to just show me some I can pick if I want, but there's no add-on browsing page likes there was.

Mozzila VPN on Android sometimes appear to automatically turn itself off.

The explaination could be in your settings on Android: Go to settings, - select Apps, - - choose Mozzilla VPN in the list, - - - go to Battery and select background Use,

go back to Mozzilla VPN in the list, - - - go to Mobile Data, - - - - turn On "Allow Background Data Usage" - - - - turn On "Allow App while Data saver is On"

now your VPN shouldn't turn off any longer.

When restarting your phone the explaination why the Mozilla VPN is OFF is that to keep your security, the app requires re-authenticating with their servers (new encryption key).

I didn't find a suggestion section, please move the post there.

Please, return icons for search engines as was in Firefox <69 and how it's implemented in Vivaldi. I really avoid to update Firefox to "big update" when you changed everything such as interface and addons and themes support. Use themes as earlier would be nice, but without normal search engines icons UI became unusable: list of engines takes more space, search suggestions in list take more space, I must click twice (type a request, click on search engine, click "search").

I'm using Firefox Nightly for Android and am able to use "unsupported" extensions via custom add-on collections. I'm adding extensions to my collection using the search bar but apparently only Desktop extensions show up. This particular extension is the most essential for me but I can't find it via the search bar. https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/android/addon/android-pdf-js/

How can I add it to my collection? Looking at this collection gave me the impression that it's possible: https://addons.mozilla.org/de/firefox/collections/5149765/android/ but how?

Hello everybody, I use Firefox for some days now, but I'm a little annoyed with the back button / back gesture usage with tabs. On all browsers I already tried, pressing back button finally close the tab after going back to the first website opened. But with Firefox, it only go to home and let the website open without closing taba. So we have to often close manually opened tabs. Is there a way to change that please ? Sorry for my bad english, I hope it's clear.

Thanks in advance.

Most mobile sites are of a lower quality than their desktop counterparts. Less features and constant requests to download unnecessary apps are annoying and waste screen space. How do I force the Firefox app to only open desktop sites?

Because when I do the toggle bar it only works for one tab and when I open links to new tabs, it switches them back to the mobile version. Which for some sites that prevents me from being able to read or access things because the mobile version switches to a page that is just a prompt to download the app and clicking the desktop toggle doesn't bring me back to the page I wanted.

I saw there used to be an addon that would have been useful. It's dead now. Is there any useful replacement add on? Any convenient workarounds?

Is there any way to disable the urlbar autofill on mobile? It used to be possible to just turn off `browser.urlbar.autofill` in `about:config`, but that's no longer available. Even if I use Firefox Developer or Nightly so that I can actually get access to `about:config`, the option is no longer there. I absolutely despise the autofill, and, up until the new version of the mobile browser, Firefox was the only browser that actually let me turn it off. I was disappointed when the update broke that, but I waited, figuring that it was still new and there were some kinks to work out. And now it's been months and it's still missing. Is there still some other way to turn this off, or am I missing something?

Has anyone else faced the issue, that about:config resets all changes made on a daily basis? I use AdGuard for Android, which performs HTTPS filtering via a local VPN. Since Firefox handles certificates differently that all other browsers, I'm forced to use the beta branch, where I can access the about:config menu. There I can set security.enterprise_roots.enabled to true. Unfortunately I have to keep setting this feature on a daily basis, since it resets every night.

When I type a hostname without a TLD into the address bar, Firefox automatically appends .com to it. I have several local devices in my network that I want to access using their hostnames instead of remembering a bunch of IP adresses, so this is very annoying. On Firefox Desktop, I can disable this behavior by setting browser.fixup.alternate.enabled to false in about:config. How can I do this on Firefox for Android? There doesn't seem to be an about:config page.

I know this is not the right place for suggestions, but I also think this setting is important enough to deserve an entry in the regular settings menu.
