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!

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.

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.

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 used to edit edit my saved logins and passwords in Firefox (some websites use numeric keypad to enter the password). But since the last update in Android platform, I can only copy or delete... In your [saved login article], I don't see a section for password edition, but it is present in the article description ("Learn how to change or remove saved login information in Firefox for Android.").

Is it a deleted feature ?

Of course I'm talking about posting pictures in the Forum on these two sites. I can tell that other people are posting freely. https://www.rawstory.com/ https://www.crooksandliars.com..

I hate, yes hate the latest Firefox upgrade! In its infinite wisdom Mozilla has taken a perfectly fine browser and fucked it up! I can't find things. I can't get to screens I was used to. I can't figure out how to bookmark a page! And the icons are so small in my list of top sites that the list is now useless! (And I suspect these changes were made to make the browser better for cell phones, and we tablet users are now shit out of luck!

You people and your stupid fucking updates that are supposed to make my 'user experience' better. Well, you've failed miserably!

So, how can I uninstall this update and reinstall the version that was working for me? Or, is there some sort of 'classic mode' option to allow the browser to look and feel and function as it used to? Or will I - as I suspect - now have to look for another browser to use?

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
