Firefox Android V102 (and previous version) crashing when selecting "switch" after selecting "Open link in private tab". This occurs frequently though not inevitably, perhaps 80% of the time.

If instead one selects the new tab by going to the tab box in the upper right corner (see attached image) then no crash.

Device is Samsung Galaxy Tab S6 tablet model SM-T860 with Android version 12.

Hi,

When using Firefox recently I've noticed my android 12 phone (running on LineageOS 19) is getting noticeably hot within a short period of time of launching Firefox. Additionally I notice a battery drain of roughly 20% in a time span of 20 minutes.

By estimate this started happening about 2 updates ago as of the time of writing this.

I'm using a OnePlus 6T and have root acces, not an expert user. Though I do know my way around software and hardware. Feel free to ask or send short instructions on how to help you guys solve this performance bug.

If you guys need a log or any other information please tell me and I'd be happy to help.

Best regards, Vincent

Firefox Passwords

Password autofill in other apps is just pain. 1. No autosaving? When using Google password manager, all passwords in other apps are automatically saved. I don't know if Google is using some proprietary API like GMS, but if not I would appreciate this in Firefox. 2. Autofill in other apps looks terribly, because every password is tied to a domain, not an app. We need to have passwords linked to an application, so they can be saved (and autosaved) when entered.

A recent update (v102) to Firefox for Android has broken "search browsing history". Before, I was able to type "tw" and see a list of ~20 Twitter results from my browsing history, arranged by frequency of visit; now, it only shows one. Is this new behaviour a deliberate change (if so, it's really bad compared to the ease of usability of the feature previously - please revert it!) or a bug?

Android - random tab navigation when I close multiple tabs

On Android say I have more than 10 tabs open and I want to start closing them. I'm currently on tab A, and then I scroll up to see the rest of the taba and start closing then by either swiping or clicking the X button. After I close 3 or more, Firefox will randomly navigate to another tab.

I would expect for Firefox to stay on the tab A which is the one I has open and never closed, instead of jumping to other tabs at random.

I synced my new phone today and ever since I have whenever I add a bookmark, they are now being listed in descending order. Newest at the bottom so I guess that's descending. I have searched the database and did an online search looking for a solution and the only thing that came up with was using the collections option

They were listing in ascending order this morning July 1st 2022
