Hi,

I used to be able to select multiple tabs and send them to my desktop. Then, the selection was still there so I could close the already selected tabs.

NOW, the feature is out. It just jumps to my current tab.

Please help to fix this.

"Tab Closed, Undo" Button Directly Over The Ability To Close The Next Tab. ALSO STILL CAN'T REORDER TABS IN TAB LIST.

There is a design flaw in a recent update of firefox for android. When I am trying to close tabs quickly from the bottom, the "tab closed, undo" button is now positioned directly over the X mark on the next tab to close the next one and I have to wait until it goes away to close the next tab. This is extremely frustrating and I am hoping this is fixed soon. It is taking 3 times as long to close my tabs in the order I would like to. The button just needs to be very slightly thinner and the X mark for the next tab will not be blocked anymore.

I ALSO WANT TO ADD THAT I STILL CANNOT REORDER MY TABS ON ANDROID AND IT IS DRIVING ME INSANE. PLEASE FIX!!!!

Hi all,

I've read a bit before, and it seems to be impossible to get the tabs available directly (FF Android), as it used to be : a real pitty in my opinion (I did tried to get used to the new Firefox, but really, I am wasting my time to switch on my many "tabs") I guess that this option won't be available again?

Here is my additional question then : how to switch between tabs in one click, or how to a dedicated close a tab in 1 click? - yes, I know that I can swipe left of right, nice feature, but it doesn t do the job efficiently - I know too the "tab" menu but it means at minimum 2 clicks

I've been using ff almost since the beginning as default browser, but since the tabs had been suppressed , I am less and less on my tablets. Let's hope now you are not planning to perform the same with FF for pc...

PS : as "tabs" are not any more tabs (don't trust me, just search "tabs for paperwork" and compare with the so called "tabs" now in FF), I strongly suggest that you rename your feature to something else)

PS2 : really sorry if my post appears a bit angrier, i mean no offense as I do recognize the amazing work whic had been performed along al those years, but seriously, suppressing basics stuff is the worst idea (it reminds me a bit opera, which used to be outdated, but which I am using again now as they improved a lot, and thanks to the FF no tabs policy)

Hi,

So in the "old" Firefox on android there was a possibility to have links opened in the background. This was removed with the overhaul update and I have been missing it ever since.

Right now I'm using pocket to have the links opened in the background but pocket outright sucks, it never shows the whole proper article and reddit pages are not shown properly either, it even makes those pages unreadable and its not showing the comments.

So to this point I am about to ditch pocket again. But I want to know if Firefox will bring back the background opening or did it purposely removed it so people would use pocket more?

If Firefox is sadly not bringing it back, I do believe Firefox is no longer my go to option and sadly forced to look for a browser that still have the background option.

Please let me know if Firefox will bring this feature back in the near future or not.

There is a large info box popping up in the bottom of the screen when I close tabs. I usually press 'x' and close tabs starting with the last one but this info box that says 'tab closed' and has an undo button on it, is covering a big portion of the last tab including it's 'x' button. It is even larger in landscape mode. This is very annoying and if I want to close another tab I'd have to wait for it to disappear or try to press around it. It's a useful feature but could the experience be made more better?

Firefox would be the best browser if Mozilla ALLOWED US TO MOVE TABS AND BOOKMARKS so that we could keep tabs about the same topic together.

But Mozilla doesn't seem to be concerned with such a simple and basic function, nor the users that request it. We used to be able to move tabs (like in my list of 55 tabs), but with the last update...

Not only can we not move tabs to group them, but an accidentally closed tab that is "undone" is put at top of page, away from its other related tabs. Many good changes, but one really bad one. Please allow us to move tabs.

Tabs Keep Randomly Disappearing at 100+

I had a little over 100 tabs open on Firefox, and they disappeared when I opened the app. I did not close them, I have auto-close set to never and inactive tabs turned off. They're not in my recently closed section, although the tabs I did close during my last session were there. The individual websites are still in my history.

This has been randomly happening for almost a year now, but this is the second time this month. My tabs keep disappearing with no warning and no apparent way to get them back, and it's always when I'm over 100 tabs. The weird thing is I've been over 400 tabs before with no issues, so idk why barely over 100 now is an issue. Why does this keep happening? Is there a way to get my tabs back?

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.

Good morning, I am writing this post because I am rather fed up with the behavior of Firefox on Android when pressing the back button. Whenever I press the back button on my device to return to FF's standard homepage, what actually happens is that the current tab goes in the background and a new blank home tab is opened instead. This ends up in having to manually close tabs to avoid them piling up in the background. Is there any custom settings to avoid this? It is REALLY annoying. I know I can tell FF to automatically close tabs after a while, but this is just a bad patch and not the solution to the problem. By the way, old FF did not behave this way before last year's major update, and I've been waiting for at least a year for this problem to be fixed. Thank you in advance for your attention and your support.

Hi everyone,

I have a problem (I guess) with sending tabs on android. As I understand the help-articles it is supposed to function like this: I select one or more tabs on my old device, tap on the share button, select my new device and after some seconds once I open Firefox App on the new device the tabs sent should appear.

So far the theory. I'm logged into both devices, all synced, but the expected behaviour doesn't show. All I get is a notification for every single tab received but when I open the App they are not there. They only open, when I tap on the notification, one by one. On my old device however, notifications are turned off. So as I tried to send the other way around nothing happened.

How do I fix this issue? It's most annoying. Please help.

(Oh and sent Facebook tabs open in my facebook app instead of Firefox when I tap on the notification - wth) Btw. I do have the latest versions installed. Old device is Galaxy S7 with Android 8 and new device is Galaxy S10 with Android 11.

Thanks in advance!

Using a 5.1 inch screen that when held horizontally only has 1 tab preview viewed at a time when the tab list is in use. There is too much unused space in the tab list. Is there a way to change the mobile ui to revert to the old updates ui? That one did not have this problem with at least 3-4 tab previews being visible at one time. The image I uploaded is an example of how much space is taken up by the blocky design and only 1 tab is visible here.

Updated after not having done so for a while expecting bug fixes. Got a very unpleasant experience, instead. I don't like the newer version, and want the old version of the UI back.

If possible, please tell me how to enable a tab bar like the old one, that you could scroll side to side, had X's on all the tabs, etc.? How to get the tab grid view to behave like the old one, with the drag and drop to rearrange function? Return the navigation buttons next to the URL bar?

If that cannot be done, then even if absolutely not recommended, please tell me how I can "downgrade" (if that word even really applies here) to the last version with the previous, likeable UI, without losing my history, cookies, etc.?

I had heard the new version was bad sometime last year, but it has been many months since then, and I really expected far better.

The + button in the menu that normally opens a new tab doesn't work anymore. The only way to open a new tab is by hitting one of the buttons on the top that normally show the history. When I press the + button either nothing happens or some Chinese add will load, and that ad takes me to a jd.com link that actually doesn't load. I have tried installing a virus scanner, clearing the cache, and reinstalling, but it didn't help. I am using an oppo find x2 pro and am living in China if that helps.

Close All Tabs should ask confirmation with a count of total tabs before closing

Hi, I had around 6,500 tabs open in my Firefox on Android v97.2.0. Unfortunately I decided to check how close all tabs works. All my tabs were closed without showing any confirmation warning. And the pop-up to undo seemed to animate in and out without leaving any chance to press it.

I don't know why Firefox keeps making these bad interface decisions. Please treat our tabs with more importance. Regardless of whether someone has 65 or 6,500 tabs open, the close all tabs button should not lose them so easily. And you place close all tabs right under the recently closed tabs button. Close all tabs should be hidden in tab settings, not openly accessible to make a mess. If you insist on keeping it out in the main menu, please ask twice and warn about the number of tabs which will be closed.

I have another idea, for which I have sent feedback and nobody seems to have read it. I think if a Firefox user is signed into Firefox sync, app their open tabs should be actively saved to bookmarks as they open and close them. This way I should have a folder of open tabs from Android and desktop. And that should have its own failsafe where it shouldn't just sync an accidental close all tabs action.

Please bring these ideas to the attention of the people who fix bugs or design new features for future releases. I may not check this support request too often as I may end up opening 100s more tabs in the next few weeks.

Please make it easier to submit feedback on Firefox for Android. And please take this request seriously. Firefox is approaching v100 and you still make it so easy for people to lose hundreds and thousands of tabs with one click. You seriously need to go back to basics and first respect our open tabs. Prevent them from being accidentally or purposely closed. If I have 6,500 tabs open, when I close all, the undo button should display for 6,500 seconds. Scale it up so I can recover it easier.

Better would have been if you had spent time adding a simple confirmation dialog which asks am I sure I want to close thousands of tabs.

Next, Firefox needs to make a tab system which is like Google Docs combined with Firefox sync for open tabs. Don't just show open tabs synced across devices. Any device can be lost or have close all tabs initiated. Go one step further and have a living automatic bookmark system so that every device feeds into my Firefox account. This way I could have all tabs automatically bookmarked and saved and at least have them accessible if things go wrong.

And this support page should be smart enough not to lose everything I've typed here. Pressing back should not wipe this text box.

Please start designing Firefox to be smarter and actually preserve my tabs and browsing session. Either don't close tabs so easily or automatically bookmark open tabs so even if my phone falls into a lake, I can go home, open Firefox on my laptop and see my open tabs from my phone saved as a folder. Once I get a new phone, Firefox should offer to restore that browsing session of open tabs from that saved folder. This is where you could integrate close tabs automatically for anyone who wants to keep their open tabs and bookmarked open tabs clean and tidy of old tabs.

Going forward I hope you will test Firefox better with people who keep hundreds and thousands of tabs open. Also each stable release in future should work towards my idea of asking confirmation before possibly doing something stupid like closing all 6,500 tabs without checking I'm sure I want to do that. Hopefully that should be possible with one release.

And then over a few releases, please make live open tabs automatic bookmarks a reality. I'm quite sad now that I've lost 6,500+ tabs I had saved to read later, over the last 3 years
