Hello I am German and not used to write in english. I use Firefox on my Xperia device. Within the last Update I got the new function to collect the tabs. I created several collections and named them. After I put in the tabs and deleted them in the list. So they were only in the collections. Today I wanted to use one Tab out of the collection. But the whole collection Was not any more there, same with 2 Others! Where are these collections and the tabs now? I did not delete them and I need them.

Where are they and how can I use them again?

Kind regards

Mischa

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).

When I want to Open Mozilla to use google which is my default search for the WWW I get Mozilla wanting me to Download something. I don't because I don't use Moble or Android. I get angry because I have to click it off and i have filled with the Tabs which i know nothing about and wish I didn't have any because i don't mind just using my Bookmarks and clicking them off when i have finished. Please tell me because this has only happened recently without my permission. Bette

On the previous Firefox browser I had on my Android phone, I set it to close all my tabs when I closed the browser. I've just updated to the new Firefox on Android and I can't find the option to do this. I have to manually close all the tabs every time I close the browser. Surely they haven't given us less options and features in the new version?!

Pressing quit in the app closes the tabs but it doesn't also close the app down on my phone.

Hi.

Thia is about Firefox on Android.

I use browser tabs to keep a visual list of topics I am working with at the moment. One-click move froma tab to another and the continuoua visual view of tabs are essential.

This morning FF android updated and moved tabs our of sight and out of mind. Also, switching between tabs was one click, one finger movement. Now it is at least two.

There is a way to get tabs back. It is called Chrome. Is there another way with Firefox?

W10 version on laptop looks still ok .. so far.

Hi everyone,

I'm using Firefox 18 for Android and I'd like it to restore my previous browsing session on startup. I'm aware of the link on the default home page, but that is not very efficient (and is unusable when firefox is reopened from a link). I've tried setting browser.sessionstore.resume_session and browser.startup.page to no avail. I'd very much appreciate any help.

Thank you.

this is an annoying situation I encounter a lot. steps to encounter this problem: 1. open 3 or more tabs, for this example they are called tab1, tab2, and tab3 in spot1, spot2, and spot3. 2. go to tab1 and close the tab switcher. 3. open the tab switcher, and close tab1 by sliding it sideways. 4. after tab2 jumps to spot1, tap it to switch to tab2. 5. observe the bug: firefox for android skips tab2 and instead opens tab3.

this happens to me a lot and I often don't notice it in time. after this happens I close the tab in spot1 (tab2) thinking that was the tab I just viewed.

Hello,

I have just updated on 2 Androïd devices Firefox to the latest version (eg 55). Unfortunately, after this update I have lost all my previous tabs :-( It's really a pity! This is the first it happens to me after an upgrade !

So I think it's a bug: could you confirm please ?

Is the anyway to recover those tabs after this upgrade if we don't launch firefox (waiting a new Firefox release which would fix this issue)? Or those tabs are lost even if we don't launch Firefox ?

Generally speaking, the tabs restoring on Android was not as handy as it is on Windows platform for example.

As a strong feature request: is it possible to have an "restore previous session" option somewhere in order to have something equivalent to what we have on Windows platform ? Or to have access to session.js or something like that on android platform ?

Best regards.

One of the Windows 10 devices shows as ASUSLaptop but the other 2 windows 10 devices' names on the android device are blank They shoulld say something like DESKTOP-ABCDE1 AND DESKTOP-UVWXY9 as those are their names. When sending a tab from any of the desktop devices ALL device names are shown complete. Sync is current. Admittedly, I have not logged out of firefox in a day or so but "things" do seem to be working otherwise.

After update to firefox 79 I only have the phone design on my Samsung Galaxy Tab S3 with android 9. I can't switch to the tablet mode and I can't change any settings for tabs because there is no button for tabs in the menu. I don't like that I have to use the counter-icon every time I want to switch to another tab so I want to get the tabs back but every description I find tells to use the tab settings which are not shown in the menue. What can I do?

How do I get in contact with anyone for personal support?? I have browsed the webpage abd the internet and am pannicking a bit here. I found an article regarding my problem in the support section, but it doesn't correlate with the settings available on my phone. Please help.

I have a Samsung Galaxy S20 and I want the feature where I can use the Google search bar widget and when I tap the links, they queue in the background in Firefox. I have this setting on my Samsung Galaxy A3 (2017) but can't figure out my new phone to do the same thing. The help page that I can find says that there is an option in settings for this, but i can't find it, it is not where it's described to be.

Why can't I contact someone directly on Firefox for support? I have autism and using support forums really makes my anxiety shoot through the roof. They are great for browsing, but what do you do when the answer or solution isn't there?? I would like to have the option of contacting support instead of writing this post into the void and just hoping for someone out there to maybe have a solution. :'( It's really very stressful.

Hope someone can help me.
