Hi,

I used to be able to select multiple tabs and send them to my desktop. Then, the selection was still there so I could close the already selected tabs.

NOW, the feature is out. It just jumps to my current tab.

Please help to fix this.

Say I have 50 tabs open and I accidentally close the bottom tab and hit "Undo" in the popup. Instead of placing the tab back into the spot it was previously in the list, it is placed at the very top of the list so I have to scroll way up to the top to open it. This wouldn't be the end of the world but you also can't rearrange tabs....

I'm on android nightly 94. Some recent changes started grouping tabs in two different way, both of which have degraded my experience in the app.

The first is grouping inactive tabs, I have Firefox set to not automatically close inactive tabs but I'm still kind of paranoid Firefox is going to close them anyway. Even if it won't, then it's just hiding them from view and makes me forget about them. I would rather they got some kind of icon or label instead.

The second is the very new search term labeling. This isn't a bad idea, but in practice it's absolutely miserable. My search terms are full to the brim with typos that google gracefully handles but firefox just leaves as incoherent labels on my tabs that makes no sense. Plus I will frequently reuse an open tab for a new search, meaning the label is completely irrelevant to what's now in the tab. The worst part is that the vast majority of my tabs are in a group labelled "other", meaning this feature just poinlessly segregates a handful of tabs and pulls them all the way to the top of the list. When it does decide a tab gets a label, that also means they're no longer in recently created order, so I have no sense of static positioning in the tab list. Plus it makes the tab list way longer overall.

Attached is a screenshot exhibiting my inability to type accurately on a phone keyboard and the search labels inability to correctly match the contents of a tab.

All in all, I think these features a huge downgrade in terms of usability, I have a short term memory disorder and I know it makes things much harder on me. I would like to be able to disable them somehow, but I can't find any toggles or anything anywhere.

Why can't I automatically close tabs after I close firefox or automatically refresh every time I log in? Closing after one day isn't the best option because the tabs don't refresh themselves automatically and I end up having to close them manually to refresh them wich is kinda troublesome. Please assist.

Good morning, I am writing this post because I am rather fed up with the behavior of Firefox on Android when pressing the back button. Whenever I press the back button on my device to return to FF's standard homepage, what actually happens is that the current tab goes in the background and a new blank home tab is opened instead. This ends up in having to manually close tabs to avoid them piling up in the background. Is there any custom settings to avoid this? It is REALLY annoying. I know I can tell FF to automatically close tabs after a while, but this is just a bad patch and not the solution to the problem. By the way, old FF did not behave this way before last year's major update, and I've been waiting for at least a year for this problem to be fixed. Thank you in advance for your attention and your support.

For example, you have like 50 tabs in your Android phone and only 5 are active, the other 45 are inactive tabs that you want to keep just there for quick switching.

The problem is, when you want to switch from an active tab to another active tab, the tabs list/grid view always started from bottom of the inactive tabs list. Meaning you have to scroll up all the way to active tabs list. Another way without having to roll is to rotate your phone between potrait to landscape or vice versa while in tabs list view. This will skip back to the top of active tabs list.

Previously, tabs list when opened always started by showing the tabs you are on at start (sort like when you click #name on hyperlink).

"Tab Closed, Undo" Button Directly Over The Ability To Close The Next Tab. ALSO STILL CAN'T REORDER TABS IN TAB LIST.

There is a design flaw in a recent update of firefox for android. When I am trying to close tabs quickly from the bottom, the "tab closed, undo" button is now positioned directly over the X mark on the next tab to close the next one and I have to wait until it goes away to close the next tab. This is extremely frustrating and I am hoping this is fixed soon. It is taking 3 times as long to close my tabs in the order I would like to. The button just needs to be very slightly thinner and the X mark for the next tab will not be blocked anymore.

I ALSO WANT TO ADD THAT I STILL CANNOT REORDER MY TABS ON ANDROID AND IT IS DRIVING ME INSANE. PLEASE FIX!!!!

I often have to cross-reference websites and web pages, occasionally keeping a tab up as a "note to self" for later. While I quite often use Firefox's bookmark feature, not all of my research or gaming tabs are something I plan to need in a day's or week's time. Right now I have over 40 tabs up. I go through my tabs multiple times a day, to see which ones I can go without. When Firefox updated, it changed the tabs on Android to screencaps with no text labels, and thus because several of my cross-references are often from the same websites, it is impossible to tell my tabs apart, without visiting every single one. As screencaps, the tabs also take up more room than in list form, meaning I have to scroll up and down several pages, clicking on similar pictures until I find the right tab. This has made both my scientific research, as well as my game experiences, a lot harder, and the only advice for it that I could find, was a suggestion to install previous versions of Firefox, after all the possible vulnerabilities have been announced in each update. All I want are my tabs back. Also for some reason, this page deletes all text, after two sentences, so I had to type all this in a text program.

Hi everyone,

I have a problem (I guess) with sending tabs on android. As I understand the help-articles it is supposed to function like this: I select one or more tabs on my old device, tap on the share button, select my new device and after some seconds once I open Firefox App on the new device the tabs sent should appear.

So far the theory. I'm logged into both devices, all synced, but the expected behaviour doesn't show. All I get is a notification for every single tab received but when I open the App they are not there. They only open, when I tap on the notification, one by one. On my old device however, notifications are turned off. So as I tried to send the other way around nothing happened.

How do I fix this issue? It's most annoying. Please help.

(Oh and sent Facebook tabs open in my facebook app instead of Firefox when I tap on the notification - wth) Btw. I do have the latest versions installed. Old device is Galaxy S7 with Android 8 and new device is Galaxy S10 with Android 11.

Thanks in advance!

Hello, I'm using Firefox 90.1.2 on android. Whenever I open a site and hit the back button and open another site it just opens a new tab and loads the previous page on another tab for no reason, if I open several pages after getting back from previous page the browser just opens several tabs and open all the other sites I visited previously. This is really annoying, please fix this issue. Thank you.
