bug report for new android app

more options

Hello all! This is a bug report for the new android app 2020-08-23

1. Adding to collections is simple, however to see the collection list you have to close all tabs to get back to the starting page and minimise the keyboard. Can you code this so if you tap the url without having to close all the tabs, the collection list appears on the page above the scan and shortcut buttons?

2. When you close all tabs and open a site from the collection list, it opens a cached copy of the page. You then have to tap the 3 buttons on the top right and refresh to get the latest version of the page.

3. Add a feedback button to the app so users can give feedback like this without having to sign up to the community forum

4. This last one is for the Mozilla website rather than the android app: On the help pages, there are thumbs up or thumbs down buttons. If you press thumbs down there is no option to type in feed back.

Thank you!

Hi, the best place to report issues of the new android app is https://github.com/mozilla-mobile/fenix/issues

If you want to talk about specific help pages, it looks like we're responsible for it, so you can tell us, what's wrong with it, or you can edit it by yourself.

Thanks I'll report to the github.

Regarding the help pages, I looked up help on the "collections" feature and it had no info on a quick way to open the collections (looks like you have to close all tabs to get the firefox default start screen to open collections?).

So I wanted to give feedback to the collections help page and pressed the thumbs down button hoping it would let me type feedback about the missing content but it didn't give the option to type anything.

No, you have to only touch the tab icon (with a number), then the plus sign. You don't have to close anything.

Instead of closing all the tabs, try creating a new tab. I'm aware of two methods for that. Either:

  • tap the tabs button (the boxed number) on the address bar, and then the + button
  • long press the tabs button (the boxed number) on the address bar until a context menu appears, and then tap "New tab"
