Hello everybody,

Firefox v122 is running on an Android 8 tablet.

1. Are the "about:config" configuration settings still supposed inaccessible for this version?

2. Will these "about:config" configuration settings eventually become available again?

3. Is the interim solution still to install the Nightly version?

Thank you.

Thank you very much for your concise and quick response. Apart from installing Nightly or Beta, is there any other way to access the config setting "browser.tabs.loadDivertedInBackground" with which to enable the diverting of tabs from another app (e.g. news feed reader, or email) to load and queue them in the browser in the background?

This is a desktop setting, I don't think it would work in Android.

Thank you, TyDraniu.

To be sure, it did work for me in the earlier versions of Firefox when "about:config" was still accessible. Hence, the frantic search for a solution (other than installing Beta, or Nightly). However, not having tabs getting queued in the background is major obstacle to my workflow — so much so that installing the Beta version is now under heavy consideration. In anticipation though, I wonder if someone who is using either the Beta or the Nightly version, can verify that the desired "browser.tabs.loadDivertedInBackground" can indeed be set, profitably?

Adding it doesn't do any difference for me, unfortunately.

Thanks for checking it. Did you use Nightly, or Beta? And, did you enable, or disable, the setting?

I'm using Nightly. This setting wasn't on the list. I added and enabled it.

Thank you, you've been most helpful, and did save me a whole lot of trouble too.
