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).

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!

In previous versions I had to do this to go to a bookmarked site without ending up with more open tabs:

1) Click on the address bar 2) Click on the desired bookmark

After the latest update I have to: 1) Click on the square with the number of open tabs 2) Click on X to close the present tab 3) Swipe down the tab list 4) Click on the three dots 5) Click on 'Bookmarks' 6) Click on the desired bookmark


The release notes says "... dramatically redesigned to be faster, easy to use..."!?

How can one see a website's certificate details on Firefox (Android). I went to a website and the certificate says verified by "Godaddy.com\,Inc.", whereas on Chrome it says Godaddy.com,Inc.", so there is an extra backslash on Firefox. Is this normal behavior on the Android browser version (79.0.4)?

Hello, today my Firefox for Android was updated from v68 to v79. Unfortunately the saved passwords were not migrated, due to a set master password.

How do I get my passwords back? The option to unset the master password is not available in v79

And no, I do not have synced the passwords with Firefox Sync

I'm shocked about this "upgrade".

As a user who used Firefox before it was called Firefox... And mobile version as soon as it was beta, I'm horrofied.

Wow, is there any chance for Mozilla to work on going back? At least Design decision wise?

How on earth can they think this is better, force this Update without warning on people?

No about:config Tabs list is way worse then before! Favorites! So complicated now It may be very important add-ons in that list of 9 supported Apps, NINE! But that is unacceptable. NO warning of loosing all saved passwords! Yes, I do NOT synch! Now I would have to re-enter the loggin data if I use this abortination of an upgraded Firefox.

I'm pretty much done with Firefox Android. If this is done to desktop...
