While browsing, if I long-click a hyperlink and select "Open in a new tab" from the ensuing menu, even though it opens the tab it also follows the hyperlink in the original tab. How do I prevent it from opening the link in my current tab?

I used to be able to open a link into a new tab on my phone by long pressing on it to get the context menu and then selecting Open in New Tab. Your Support docs even says this is how it's done. https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/using-tabs-firefox-android#w_open-a-link-in-a-new-tab

What has started happening recently though is that it instead selected the link texts and the context menu now only gives me the options to Copy, Share, Select All, and Search.

How do I open a link in a new tab now?

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

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.

Usually when I click the new tab or '+' button there are tabs for top sites, bookmarks, recent tabs and history. I recently updated my browser and the recent tabs option is gone. I use it embarassingly often. How do I get it back or has firefox done away with it? All the other tabs are still there.

Hi,

With the up-to-date version of Firefox Androind 84.1, Youtube videos(m.youtube.com) won't play in the background (on a tab that isn't on the foreground or in another app) any more. Downgrading to an older Firefox version does allow background playing. Is disabling updates the only option to maintain this function?

Restoring mobile/Android tabs after accidentally "Close All Tabs"

Hi,

Unfortunately I lost over 130 tabs today after accidentally hitting "close all tabs" while trying to open up a private session. The lack of failsafe asking if I'm sure or offering to undo this means weeks of research down the drain.

Some of the tabs have been open for weeks, and others just for days... which means finding the older tabs through my history is almost an impossibility.

I have Mozilla Synch activated and was hoping there might be a way to sync tabs onto my desktop browser from a few hours ago, or even from a day ago. Is this possible? Do any other methods exist to restore these tabs? I've tried scouring forums for answers and I'm getting desperate.

Thank you

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

Hey I think version 69 still had the 'Recently closed tabs' view, but I cant find it on version 81. I already searched this site and also googled it.

I closed a tab accidentaly that i opened some time ago. So searching through my history won't do it since it was an article of a site where i opened and read like 20 articles, I also cant remember the name of it.

I guess it was removed in favour of a more simplistic UI? If so I would really like the devs to consider adding that back in, I know that there is an option for reopening the tab right after closing it, but it is possible to miss it or your device just bugging/slowing down on you when you do this. This happened a few times to me.

Thanks in advance!

I just bought a Galaxy Tab s2 loaded with android 6.0.1. Using Firefox for search, my wife opens the firefox home page and gets a series of tabs called 'top sites', some of which are transfers from her old machine BUT a few are new....Twitter and Facebook . I do not see a delete ability on that page. How do we get rid of the bloatware for social media we neither want nor can get rid of??

Is there a firefox support hotline for a self-sustaing fee with paid service prsonal to support the mozilla project as well as get a fast answer on a question?

For Example I want to have real tabs on my android tablet, like in opera and chrome. The support here just says the tabs are hidden behind the summarizing tab number. Very likely that change is possible, but it would cost me some more hours of research (or only one googeling, but i do not know it) Because Mozilla is a non-profit organisation I would be OK to spend a little money to avoid the unsure research attempt. A part of the money for mozilla, the other part for the service guy, fast and precise information for the calling Asker -> that would be a triple win :)
