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.

I was surprised to discover that when I switch from a tab to another tab, the first tab is no longer active. That means that if I'm listening to a sound clip (web radio, youtube etc.) I'm not allowed to be surfing at the same time, or else the clip will stop playing and will resume only when I switch back to the original tab. This is very frustrating, and somewhat strange, too. Opera is the only browser that seems to offer this possibility. Is there a way to do that in the current Firefox version, and if not, could you see to it in the next ones?

Tab Saving Issue on FF for Android

Greetings,

This is my first time posting here, so I apologize if my posting format is incorrect in any way.

My issue is that ever since the update to FF for Android around the first of the year, my open tabs are no longer being saved. The only way to avoid that occurrence seems to be to switch between apps using task manager - however, if you have to return to the home screen for any reason, the tabs are wiped out when you return to Firefox.

(Just to let you know, I don't use Sync because it screws with my Xmarks account.) Any assistance would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

When I want to Open Mozilla to use google which is my default search for the WWW I get Mozilla wanting me to Download something. I don't because I don't use Moble or Android. I get angry because I have to click it off and i have filled with the Tabs which i know nothing about and wish I didn't have any because i don't mind just using my Bookmarks and clicking them off when i have finished. Please tell me because this has only happened recently without my permission. Bette

How do I move my tabs to the right of my browser instead of the left? I am using a 10" Android tablet and can't find anything about it in the Q&A sections. In the video clips of the answer sections they all show the tabs on the right side of the browser. It would be a lot more convenient! Thx

why can't firefox automatically reopen tabs from last session, like pc version? although i get a selection on start up to open previous tiles, this doesn't work

four issues (android version only) 1- firefox will kill itself when tablet is put to sleep - not shut off - for a few hours, when that happens 2- previous tabs are closed when firefox is restarted, so you press 'open all tabs...' which doesn't really open all the previous tabs, but 3- opens tabs from the same url with identical pages. eg, if you are on mozilla website, and have one tab on one page, another tab on a different page, when you reopen later using 'open all tabs...' you get two tabs for mozilla, but both on the same page. and lastly, 4- when you reopen using 'open all tabs...' you lose your 'back' history. when you select 'back', you go to mozilla's start up page. very frustrqting.

i must say, i really like firefox, use it through out our office and home computers, so i have a fair amout of experience using firevfox. i just find this one issue frustrating, and cannot see the logic i n disabling the cho8ce of reopening all tabs from last session, like your windows browser.

Hi everyone,

I'm using Firefox 18 for Android and I'd like it to restore my previous browsing session on startup. I'm aware of the link on the default home page, but that is not very efficient (and is unusable when firefox is reopened from a link). I've tried setting browser.sessionstore.resume_session and browser.startup.page to no avail. I'd very much appreciate any help.

Thank you.

In the android tablet firefox, when we hit the "+" sign to add new tab, we're automatically taken to the "topsite/bookmarks/history" page. In order to get to the FF Start screen, we'd have to either look for it in the bookmarks or manually type "about:home".

Is there a way to get right to Firefox Start screen at launch of a new tab? After all, it's called the "Start screen".
