I'm using Firefox 23 for Android, and when I'm on Google's search pages there are no Search Tools so I'm unable to refine the search time frame, or location, or adjust the results. How do I get this feature without using the "Request Desktop Site" option as that page causes the browser to run slowly.

Zooming on DeX (Desktop mode)

I've been trying to use Firefox as my main browser on my Samsung Galaxy S8, but I ran into a problem on DeX (desktop mode). The browser scales pretty well in a DeX window (showing the tablet interface, not the phone one), but there seems to be no way to zoom in or out.

Normally you zoom by using 2 fingers, but of course in DeX you only have one mouse pointer, so this isn't an option.

Other browsers like Samsung Internet and Chrome deal with this by allowing you to use Control + mousewheel just like on the desktop. But Firefox doesn't have this feature. There's also no option in the menu.

Did anyone find any way to zoom in DeX mode? Many pages come up way too big or too small which is unusable.

PS: I tried Firefox Preview as well but same deal there.

I currently have approximately a dozen tabs open, of which most are required to be viewed in a particular order. Is there a way to change the order of these tabs? If there is not, holding onto one of the tabs without sliding it sideways could become a method of "unlocking" the selected tab, allowing it to be moved up or down the list (I sure think it sounds like a good, and mostly easy, possible future addition to the app).

Thanks for your time, Adam

hi: absolutely love love the new "pin tab" feature. maybe it's not new. I just stumbled on it.

I like it's sizing. neat and compact.

my desire is to use it, but Firefox not try to open page until I click on the tab (so it's really acting as a bookmark located on my bookmark toolbar )

I don't want Firefox to try and open page as I have 9 tabs and it takes sooooo long to load ... and wastes data. I am on broadband but still 9 at once taxes my beloved Firefox

OR

if cant do above, I'd line to resize my bookmark toolbar just on left say first 10, to be the - compact neat (so no separator space) - icon only and no text

how do I do either of these?
