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 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).

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.

Hi there,

I live the bottom toolbar from a usability perspective. Though for me it's hiding the page bottom. For some forums that means for example the reply button is barely visible. Anyone else has that issue? Is it a known one? The search didn't give me any results, so I thought I'd report on here.

Thanks!

I just got the nw upgrade for Firefox on Android, version 79.0.5 (Build #2015758619) AC: 48.0.15, 8755ac0cd GV: 79.0.1-20200813192915 AS: 61.0.10

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.

Hi, I use Facebook and Instagram through a browser. However, ever since the (forced) "upgrade" to version 79.0.5, neither site seems to allow me to upload media anymore. Can anyone explain to me how to get FF to allow uploading again, or otherwise explain to me this is a "feature"? I'm nearing the point of abandoning FF for all the - widely reported - problems with the latest version for Android. Bo
