Android 13, ff 107.1.0..... on previous Android phone, when I clicked a link in an email, the web page would open, and I could click an X on the tab and return to the email message. Now this requires several steps to get back to the email. How do I get back to the X on the tab to return to email message?

An email message with several links becomes pretty tedious in this new version.

Whenever I tap a button on any website that is supposed to start uploading process nothing happens. I don't get to see a file browser with which I am supposed to pick a file or anything else, only a slight website UI animation of the button responding to my tap if the website/button has one.

This has been the case from the moment I installed Firefox. It is the same in both regular and private browsing. I have looked at Firefox and Android app permission settings and haven't found anything and allowed everything relevant for Firefox to use (access to files, internet). I have no problem downloading files. I am using MIUI 13 Global.

I have no idea if it's even possible, but on Desktop I can sort my history in the order I've visited them, from the latest being on top to the ones visited a long time ago towards the bottom (and this should really be the default method for sorting history).

How can I achieve this on Firefox Nightly for Android?

My home screen icons no longer have any names! It's impossible to tell different shortcuts from one another if they share the same image. There's nothing in the customisation options about hiding text, and I wouldn't have enabled any such feature if I had found the option. Help!? I know there were names there before.

I have used links to websites added to home screen. These shortcuts recently stopped working. If I use bookmark on Firefox Android it opens. If I copy url to Chrome and create a shortcut link on home screen it works. Is there a Firefox setting that changed? I've used these shortcuts without problem on this phone until past week or so.

I'm on Android 11 updated to Oct 2022. Xiaomi Poco X4 Pro 5G. Firefox 107.1.0 with "add shortcuts to home screen" enabled.

Thank you for guidance.

In this article, it specifically says "Listen to videos in the background If you minimize Firefox while playing video/audio, it will continue to play in the background, so you can multitask on your phone."

Hi,

I'm using Firefox for all my devices. I activated synchronization of all items from all devices. But the History is not synchronized between devices. Meaning, from my Windows Firefox, I'm not able to see the history from my Android device, and vis versa.

I'm using last versions of FF from all my devices (I always update to last version when one is available).

Is there something I'm missing?

Many thanks for your help.

Best regards,
