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,

I have installed Firefox on my kids Android tablets and the tabs bar is missing and I am not able to turn it on. Without the tabs bar they cannot easily switch between tabs, they also don't immediately see what pages they have open - without clicking the tabs button. The tablets are 10" and running Android 10 and the latest Firefox.

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?

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

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

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 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 the latest (1/27) version of Firefox Nightly, a newly created tab always shows the "most visited sites", even when this feature has been switched off in Settings >> Customise >> Home.

On all previous versions, this worked correctly.

What's the best way to raise this with the developers? GitHub and/or Bugzilla?

You used to be able to reorganize tabs and other items by doing a "long press" then a "drag". You can't do that anymore.

Also "collections" cannot be reordered. The newest one is always at the top of the list.

Items within collections cannot be reordered. Whatever is added is appended to the bottom.

When you open a link from a collection, or a series of links, or if you move between tabs a lot, the new tabs that get opened are seemingly in random places. It would be much better if they all opened at the "top" of the tab list, or at least grouped together somehow.

People who heavily rely on tabs to keep track of things really have no hope in the new Android layout. Basic tools to manage and maintain organization are missing. It's pretty bad if you need to have a lot of tabs open, and you have no way to group, reorder, or prioritize them.

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

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?

Multiple tabs is so 9ncredibly annoying and pointless, it just clutter things up, and I don't want to have to go through extra steps to get a refreshed page or continually close tabs Im not using but that clutter the screen.

There MUST be a way to disabke them???

Now that you've elected BidenFox Android as your browser you will receive free tabs every day, all day. You get free tabs if you open a Bookmark and free tabs if you open Top Sites. And because you've upgraded without questioning our policies, we'll give you free tabs whenever you open anything in any Collection.

That's right, we've given you Collections! We want you to stop using those Trumpmarks, the trusted and private URL's you rely on throughout your day. We didn't spend anytime on making Trumpmarks more useful, like the ability to rearrange them in any order, something you've asked for year after year. So forget Trumpmarks and use Top Sites or Collections because you can never get enough free tabs.

And a bonus: If you have shortcuts on your phones Home Page, every one will open a new tab. More importantly, we now govern the behavior so it exits to Firefox, not back to your phones Home Page like past versions.

Thank you for electing BidenFox for Android as your browser. Only 4 more years until the next one.
