When I want to open a bookmark in a new tab, there's no Settings button. If I'm in a tab I wish to keep open, the Settings button is there. I'm able to use it to open the new tab, and then I can't go anywhere unless I know the address, because I can't access my bookmarks. I've been waiting a long time for this to be fixed. I don't see any logical reason for this, so I wonder if I'm missing something or if a setting got changed. Please help me access my bookmarks from a fresh tab.

Why is video streaming so laggy and choppy using Firefox on Mobile?

Streaming video on websites using Firefox or Firefox Nightly like YouTube, Tubi TV etc on my Android smartphone results in a low, sluggish frame rate that can be hard to watch. When using a chromium powered web browser for media consumption like Kiwi Browser, the same video from the same website plays perfectly smooth every time.

The only extension I have installed on both the Firefox and Firefox Nightly apps on my phone is UBlock Origin.

Does anybody know of any settings or optimizations I can make that can help smooth out video streaming playback on Firefox?

I know that I have seen tons of forums already regarding this issue. However, I still don't understand the reason for me being unable to sync my logins and passwords to my smartphone device via the desktop version of Firefox Browser I have. I switch to this browser from Chrome because of the AdBlock, but I still don't understand how it is so much easier and simpler with them to sync while here I am having a hard time to get all logins and passwords to be available on all of my devices.

I was happy with it but I realized several months ago than websites as leboncoin.fr, amazon.fr, decathlon.fr (yes i'm french), didn't keep me loged in but remember what I had looked for and where I was. This problem is permanent.

I don't have this problem with Firefox for Windows.

So it seems something is nor cleared from the app when I close it.

Thank you very much for your help !

Phone: Oneplus 8 Android version: 12 Build number: IN2015_11_C.21 Firefox version: 105.1.0

Steps to reproduce: - Open Firefox - Go to a website - Click the triple vertical dots - Add to home screen - Press add - Press add

The app isn't on the home screen, but attempts to add it again fail with the message "This shortcut already exists".

How do I remove these invisible shortcuts? Can I do this through the file explorer? If not, can this be fixed?

My picture-in-picture feature on my Galaxy S22 does not work on the Firefox app. The feature is clicked 'on' on my device, and is also turned on for the Firefox app specifically, yet the button does not appear on any video on the app. When I click the 'menu' button or the 'back' button on the device, the video simply stops playing. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated, thank you.

When I open firefox mobile I have pinned short cuts and now i have history items littering the home tab. Under the customization option there is no way to prevent this and it is a massive privacy issue for me. Is there a way to stop history items from showing up on the home tab other than having it delete all browsing history and site data on exit.

When trying to close Mozilla firefox on Android, it just doesn't happen. I can "swipe" it away in app-selector, but it is still open in the background.

It is also refusing to go away from the notification bar, and I am going out of my mind, having to restart my phone each time I use the browser.

Do anyone here have a suggestion? I already tried re-installing FF and rebooting my phone obviously.

It started happening about 1 month ago.

Firefox 105.1.0 (build #2015904299)
