- youtube mobile view (not the app) full screen is not loading correctly , its to the right and off screen using phone hand held and up and to the right on Dex App (pic shown).

- listening to streaming podcasts with andriod phone , stops streaming as phone goes into screen saver.

Ive never had these issues prior to newest update. Also no issues with my samsung internet browser which is slowly becoming my default and prefered app. This happens using both phone hand held or Dex App mode.

for the awful piece of garbage being passed off as an update to what was once the best browser around?

This pos is wrong in soooo many ways and the patronising statement that Mozilla is 'listening" is just an insult.

Downgrading isn't an option because previous versions aren't available. Windows yes, Android no. That must be because no one would stay with the latest version, so we're forced to stay with it. NOT Me. After 20 years I'm dumping Firefox. This latest version is crap and I'm not willing to settle for reduced productivity or ease of use out of blind loyalty. I had to install Opera to do something that FF couldn't. It's faster than FF, less page conflicts, shares bookmarks between devices and is far better than the crapgrade that is FF80.1.x - far better.

The best thing is for Mozilla to go bust, that way there's a chance that whoever buys the remains realises that satisfying customer needs rather than their own weird ideas is what's important.

Maybe if enough readers vote for this post it'll send a message that this crapgrade isn't fit for use and is hated. They would do well to abandon it and reinstate the previous version, but that would mean admitting their mistake, and Mozilla has never done that, preferring instead to brainwash us that we'll like it when we're use to it. Bull.

Time is running out. Market share has fallen consistently and the competition has improved whilst FF has deteriorated. This crapgrade could be the straw that breaks it. It is for me. I'm importing my bookmarks into Opera and configuring it on desktop and Android. Sadly, after being with FF since the beginning (at work and home) and with Netscape Navigator before that, it's the end of the road for me. The world needs a variety in apps, but whatever this one has to offer, the price is too high.

Because you removed two crucial addons, I reverted to an earlier version of FF. At some point, I will remove FF and switch to another browser altogether.

Been a loyal user of ABP for too many years to give up. I tried UBlock, which is terrific, but tells you it occasionally stops working. The first time I ran into that mess, I uninstalled it. Cookie-Editor is crucial to my browsing.

I have nothing more to say, except I am very disappointed.

redesign firefox mobile with VISIBLE multiple Tabs.

Currently lacking in ALL mobile browsers whether it be iOS or Android is the ability of the app to have multiple tabs that are visible at the same time just like a PC or Apple version of Firefox.

However, there is one mobile browser (Android Habit Browser) that has the ability to have multiple visible tabs are seen simultaneously & viewed immediately by touching tabs just like a PC or apple computer. It makes mobile browsing so simple and fun as opposed to the current designs where only 1 tab at a time is visible & you have to touch to view multiple thumbnails then switch to that single tab.

Also Habit Browser is very fast and completely customizable like Firefox pc and apple computer browsers.

So what I'm proposing is for Firefox redesign similar to this design and also this habit browser is not equipped with all the safety features that Firefox has and actually probably is not in financial sanding to make large Improvement. If I were Firefox I would buy the company and the technology and use it in their new browsers with all the security rich features that they're planning in the future and they would blow away all of the other browsers that are mobile with a superior usability and speed.

It will probably take a lot of people to ask for this for Firefox to consider this type of designs and it would be so much fun for Firefox to have that because I've been supporting them for years. I have always used the PC Firefox browser for a couple of decades.

This can only happen if there's a large support so I would encourage those who are interested in a superior mobile browser to go ahead and download The Habit browser and there are multiple settings and customizations and you'll see how easy to tabs work and how fast it is and how a Firefox browser with these capabilities would be fantastic!

Cheers,

Chris

I've noticed that the number of collections is limited to only 20. That low number itself is a pity. But adding the 21st and in consequence delete the oldest one from the 20 I don't understand and don't accept. Could you please issue an error message and state that a further collection is not possible due to having reached the maximum of 20. I should add that I noticed that behavior before I've registered for a Firefox account. Maybe people with and without an account are treated differently.

Best regards, Frank

Greetings, about week or more ago whenever I would open Firefox two instances would pop up and to fully close Firefox I would have to exit out of both. While it is a rather small inconvenience having to swipe twice to fully quit the app it's slowly becoming more annoying especially when I am going through my open apps and two Firefox browsers get in the way of me finding the app I need or when I am trying to look at something from another open app quickly. Any help would be appreciated. I have a Pixel 3a running Android 11 and Firefox is updated to the most recent version. Also, I do not have any add-ons or pluggins. I have included a screen shot of what it looks like Thank you!

I got version 80.1.2 and I am still missing the options to view page source code and to copy like video URLs by holding on them when not in fullscreen. This was possible in previous versions. Am I missing an option to enable those or am I doing something wrong? I really need those options. If they are not present and not coming back I would very much like to understand why. Glad for any advice, Dennis

I have some suggestions about firefox for android. But I don't konw how to deliver it. I have found a similar question which was posted several years ago and I got this link: https://qsurvey.mozilla.com/s3/FirefoxInput/. But I can't find any way to contact Firefox except reporting program issues in the brand new Firefox browser. Two questions: 1. Is this link still works? I mean do Firefox staff really read everyone's feedback there and consider it seriously? 2. Are there any way by which I can contact Firefox staff directly? For example by email. Thanks for answering.
