Hi,

So in the "old" Firefox on android there was a possibility to have links opened in the background. This was removed with the overhaul update and I have been missing it ever since.

Right now I'm using pocket to have the links opened in the background but pocket outright sucks, it never shows the whole proper article and reddit pages are not shown properly either, it even makes those pages unreadable and its not showing the comments.

So to this point I am about to ditch pocket again. But I want to know if Firefox will bring back the background opening or did it purposely removed it so people would use pocket more?

If Firefox is sadly not bringing it back, I do believe Firefox is no longer my go to option and sadly forced to look for a browser that still have the background option.

Please let me know if Firefox will bring this feature back in the near future or not.

Hello My private tabs sometimes abruptly disappear when I come back to the browser, even though I do not do anything unusual. I cannot discern any predictable pattern. But when I go to the crash report section in the settings, there is no record of it, I suppose because the private navigation crashed within the browser not the app itself.

I appreciate the hard work, for developing and continue developing the MOZILLA FIREFOX. I am an information seeker. I usually search for information about various things, when I found it out, I simply minimize the browser and when I get free time I will jump into the results. So my problem is the TAB AUTO REFRESHING. I am aware of the add-on 'TAB AUTO REFRESH' but it's not available in ANDROID (I am using one), so anyone have alternative way, please respond. I value your feedback very much.

P.S :- Thank you for your time and response in advance.

In Huawei and that firefox newer version, if you open many tabs, like 8, you cannot slide between them, uponopening Firefox again, let's say tomorrow. It does not allow to slide with finger and switch from let's say first tab to eight. You see info in right bottom corner that there are 8 tabs, but you can not get those to open. You can not switch from visible tabs to those it visible at the moment.

Phone model: Blackshark 2, Android 10

Firefox Nightly 92.0a1 (Build #2015826123)

When opening the tabs with between over 60 ~ 70 tabs in potrait screen, the tabs will defaulted to List option despite the setting is set to Grid option. To switch into Grid view correctly, the tab must be opened in potrait mode then rotate the phone to landscape and back into potrait view. However, closing the tabs view and reopen will switched back into List view again. Reinstall or restarting the app while in Grid setting doesn't work.

Landscape screen mode can switch between and keep according option chosen in the setting correctly.

Like a week ago an update came and made tabs become inactive on Firefox nightly Android. That wouldn't be a problem, you can just turn on a setting so that they never get closed, but it's really anoying when your scrolling through the many open tabs and your new tab is at the very bottom in the inactive tabs section. If you open and activate the tab than it become active, but if I open many tabs or if I don't want to activate a tab that I just opened I will have to search for in in the inactive tabs. Does anyone know how to change that behavior or just disable the inactive tab feature entirely?

"Tab closed" popup covers button to close last tab in Firefox for Android

I believe this is a bad interaction between my Device's theme and Firefox's behavior. In Firefox for Android, whenever I close a tab, a "Tab closed. Undo" popup comes up. This in and of itself isn't too bad, but the problem is it's *exactly hovering over the last tab*.

So if I want to close multiple tabs in a row, I can do that for any tab *except* the last one. If I want to close the last two tabs, for instance, which I often do, I have to tap close on one of them, wait 5 seconds for the popup to close, then tap the second.

I've tried tapping on this popup, but it does nothing. It would be nice if tapping on the popup closed it. But ideally, the popup would not obscure the "close tab" button on the last tab

Maybe the popup could push the tabs up, so it's under them rather than on top of them? To be honest, I don't care what the solution is, just offering some.

Sorry to rant - it's just very annoying for what I find to be a very common UI interaction with Firefox for Android. I'd really like to just be able to close my tabs in any order, without thinking about it, and without waiting 5 seconds between tabs for a popup...

I'm using Firefox 90.0.12 on a OnePlus Nord N200 5G running Oxygen OS 11.0.0.0.DE17AA (Android 11).

Hi Everybody! I use Firefox Nightly 91 for Android and I wish to know how I can reverse the ordering of my tabs.

I don't want to rearrange my tabs (which seems not possible and has been answered here several times already). I just want to have the possibility to reverse the ordering: currently, my "latest" tabs are at the bottom of the list but I want them to be at the top. Just that.

By the way, if I remember well it was like I wish it to be on a previous version but was suddenly reversed after an update.

If there is an appropriate entry for that in about:config, I'll be a happier user!

Thanks in advance!

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

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

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.
