On the previous Firefox browser I had on my Android phone, I set it to close all my tabs when I closed the browser. I've just updated to the new Firefox on Android and I can't find the option to do this. I have to manually close all the tabs every time I close the browser. Surely they haven't given us less options and features in the new version?!

Pressing quit in the app closes the tabs but it doesn't also close the app down on my phone.

Automatically received the latest major firefox update on my Samsung galaxy tab s3. I don't know what Mozilla did to this release but I can't find any functions to do basic browser controls like going back to the previous page, going to the next page, or refreshing a page. I really love firefox but it's kind of unusable without these controls. I'm going to have to use chrome which I'd prefer not to do until this is fixed. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

I can't find the command to save the web page either as html or pdf etc. Could someone please tell me where it went? I'm using v79.0.5. Searching didn't reveal an answer so I must be missing something. I'm finding this new UI very confusing.

I'm using Firefox v79.0.5 on Android 10, and a browser behavior has apparently changed.

Used to be that if I opened a link that was active on a tab, that tab would become current.

Now, when I open a link, it always opens a new tab, so that I have 2 (or more) tabs displaying the same link.

Is there a control/setting I can use to restore the old behavior?

Thanks in advance.

Unwanted update to beta version on Android?

Suddenly Firefox updated on my Android phone and now none of my addons work, including my password manager and cookie manager. When I open the support link it opens to Firefox for Android beta Solutions. Addons are one of my main reason for using Firefox. Every article I've seen says there is no way to downgrade. If that's true I'll be switching to another browser that supports Chrome extensions, whether this version (79.0.4 (Build #2015757667)) is actually beta or not. Forced, irreversible updates with no warning that break critical functions. This is why I don't like the whole app store system, and again if true, this is totally inexcusable. I know this free software is a labor of love on the part of the developers, but I don't think I can deal with this update. A bunch of patronizing articles explaning why "we know what's best" is no better than Google or Microsoft. Anyway this was a major inconvenience coming without even a warning.

Hi,

Now when i click the address bar at the top I'm met with a Blank Screen whereas before the update I had my Top Sites "pinned" for quick & easy access. I now have to faff around going into the bookmarks which is pointless when this feature was working perfectly well, why remove it?

Also when i start Firefox fresh i see small icons for the top sites but they're so small the URL/Name doesn't show up so i have no idea which icons lead to which sites. These need to be bigger like post update and put back line they were before.

If it ain't broke don't fix it. This update is a massive fail, please revert ASAP.

The latest update of Android Firefox is absolutely becoming an annoying issue. Not being able to set my view back to the old style theme is absolutely ridiculous. I don't like the new Firefox, everything about it is garbage, I hate to say that. I've used Mozilla apps since the organization existed and made apps. This is going back ten years ago. I haven't once disliked this web browser. Sorry to say but this update to the android is not enjoyed, I'm sure many feel the same way. New Android Firefox update, needs a function to restore old, but better functionality, with the previous look/theme. The options that were there for personal use are now removed and has less functionality. The options given now; are absolutely unnecessary and doesn't at all help anyone get the old look back. But only encourages you to stick with the simple new look that is absolutely backwards from the previous versions of Firefox. Having no favorite star on the top bar of the browser is a joke. Having everything you need in a tiny menu now, is very annoying. Especially how Firefox will now open tab after tab, and not close them either. Every single page I visit sits in the background of the app until I manually close them. There is no options to change that function to automatically remove tabs when exiting. As I said, all the options I used to to use, are now gone and I now am disliking Firefox for the fist time in my life. my whole point of this post is to show Mozilla team my concern for the latest Android Firefox update, how they need to allow us users to change options we in the past version had. Also allow us to change the look/theme back to the old style and forget this new look. I'm not ready to be limited on my web browser, I need my functionality back and so does many others who care, as I do. Please do consider my question and thoughts, hopefully this matter can be resolved.

The last update of Firefox Android completely broke base functionalities such as tabs, and you now have to go into sliding sub-menues just to open up new tabs, or even switch between tabs.

For the longest time, I've been trying to stave off using Chrome, even as more and more pages seem to flat-out not work, but with this latest update, I really can't excuse using Firefox anymore, as even basic usage now becomes a constant back-and-forth, trying to fight against the application itself.

Is there any way to resolve this, or am I forced to migrate?

Or, if this is not possible and Firefox Android 79 is indeed unusable, how do I upgrade to 68 (which I believe was the previous version) without losing my pre-existing tabs (of which I have oh-so-many).

Running on Samsung Galaxy A5 Android 8.0.0 Samsung Experience 9.0

On pages that used to show reader view yesterday, the icon is now missing. What has changed in the upgrade that disables this very useful feature? And I know for sure the website has not changed, so it's definitely because of the upgrade.
