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

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.

I have done a clean reinstall of the latest versions of Firefox on both systems, and also tried registering and syncing new accounts. Each time I get the same problem: both systems claim to have synced, but the data is not available to view on the phone.

None of the other similar issues in the help section had solutions which resolved my problem. Any help you can offer is greatly appreciated.

Best, James

On my OnePlus One Firefox display a bit like the desktop app: Tabs across the top, back/forward buttons next to the address bar.

I just upgraded to a OnePlus 6 and the UI is totally different. I actually like the desktop-like UI. How do I toggle between the two interfaces?

Screenshots attached.

I have followed the instructions here https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/open-links-background-later-viewing-firefox-android so it's set up OK. When I click on a link (usually in Outlook app) I get the initial notification panel at the bottom of the screen and if I click on Open now it works fine, however if I decide not to open it immediately and I move onto the next email and the next etc, clicking links to be queued. When I go to Firefox I don't have a notification panel as shown in step 4 saying that I have x tabs waiting consequently I am unable to find or view all the queues tabs.

Samsung Galaxy S3. Until today I could see a "stack" of thumbnails representing my open tabs when I click the "page" icon in the upper right corner of the browser window. This would allow me to easily jump from one tab to another. Now when I click on the "page" icon I see only the thumbnail representing the currently open page. If I scroll up in the thumbnail area I will scroll through the open tabs. Scrolling down closes the selected tab. I can not get Firefox back to its original settings. Please help or I will have to uninstall Firefox and install another browser.
