Hello, Recently I encounterd a strange bug wherein I simply cannot open a new tab in Firefox for Android. Everytime I do so, it just resets the same page to the default homepage. Same on both regular and private browsing.

I have gone through the forums and found nothing useful for this situation. So far I've tried: 1. Removing all extensions 2. Completly reinstalling Firefox from both the Play Store and F Droid. 3. Upgrading to the beta and Nightly versions to see if it's just a bug

No luck, I'm honestly stumped as what to do. Currently the jank setup I have is to open some random link in a new tab and then look up what I want in said tab, but this cannot continue.

I'm on a Poco F1, running Android 11 with Firefox for Android v87.0.0-rc.1

The grid view is back on mobile, but the tabs cannot be rearranged. Collections are not very useful. Will this be improved?

Without any difference in functionality the grid view doesn't make much sense to me. For a long time Firefox was the preferred browser on my phone, mainly because it was the only one that supported manual tab reordering. The fact is that I often have a lot of Web pages open in tabs, and I plan to read them later. With Firefox I could quickly set the priority of reading, moving tabs up or down. Suddenly Mozilla made the tabs unmovable and introduced collections instead. Collections are convenient, but don’t replace manual tab reordering. They are great for routine tasks. But on phones, the vast majority of routine tasks are performed by their own applications, so, collections can only be useful for news and forums. However, even while reading the news, I open several tabs that I often need to rearrange. Thus, Firefox became much less attractive to me. Around the same time, Google’s Chrome made tabs movable and even introduced groups of tabs to make browsing more convenient. I recently realized that I now prefer Chrome. I only open Firefox when I need to listen to music videos in background or access my bookmarks and Firefox accounts. Will Mozilla team ever again return manual change the order of tabs?
