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.

Even though these two systems offer very similar features, they can’t work across platforms. This means that new features like Message Reacting, Typing Bubbles, and Read Receipts will not work when an Android is texting an iPhone, or vice versa. This does not mean that iPhones and Androids can’t text, however.

This happens completely randomly. Only way to make that website work is to close tab and reopen a new one.

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al those years, but seriously, suppressing basics stuff is the worst idea (it reminds me a bit opera, which used to be outdated, but which I am using again now as they improved a lot, and thanks to the FF no tabs policy)

When I open firefox on my laptop, it does exactly what I want it to do, and displays a blank tab. No pockets, no bookmarks, no past tabs, nothing. Just a tab, and a blank background. In order for this to work, I had to change multiple settings and set [browser.sessionstore.resume_from_crash] in about:config to "false."

Firefox on my mobile devices is missing most of these settings, and of course, mobile Firefox does not have about:config (a fact which I find incredibly frustrating). The only setting I have found that stops tabs from reopening in a new session is dot menu > settings > general > tabs which offers me these choices:

o Never x After one day o After one week o After one month

Given that I use Firefox multiple times a day, even selecting the shortest possible setting means that my tabs will always reopen when I start a new session. I do not want tabs restoring! If I want to restore a session, I will use "restore previous session." I don't need the app doing it for me, unless I ask. How can I turn off this incredibly irritating feature?

Hi, this is an idea: To be able to sort the order of tabs.

Often I'll be browsing for something one day, then move on to something else and continue browsing/researching the first thing again later or the next day. Suddenly I have lots of tabs on differrent subjects open and no way to organize the order of them, with using bookmarks/collections, which would be timeconsuming. Being able to reordering them would be really helpful, and also make the „swipe between tabs“ a lot more useful, without having to scroll back and forth through tabs within different subjects.

And especially on my tablet, where I have lots of tabs open when researching this would be great. :)

Hope you'll consider this.

Hi Firefox-Supporters,

I use Firefox for Android for long time. I use

  • Firefox for Android Version 104.1.0 (Build #2015898515)
  • Addons: uBlock Origin, Privacy Badger, NoScript, Decentraleyes
  • Autocomplete URLs (Settings - Search - Adress bar): active
  • Firefox for Android linked with a Firefox account and my Firefox Windows installation

Since about two weeks I sometimes get mail.ru as an Autocomplete URL suggestion when I am starting to type 'm', which should show mydealz.de as my by far the most visited website with letter m (visits: 10 or more / day). Sometimes the Autocomplete Feature still suggests mydealz.de. For months and years, it always suggested mydealz.de as expected, I have never seen any suggestion for mail.ru . Now I am wondering why sometimes mail.ru is suggested, as I did not make any (intentional) changes to my setup. Do you have any tips on finding the source for that suggestion? I was wondering if any app/addon or similar is opening the website in the background, as I did not open it intentionally.

Things I already checked/actions I made to find the potential source or at least fix the issue

  • Searched bookmarks (Android and Windows) for mail.ru - no bookmark set
  • Searched search engines (Android and Windows) for entry for mail.ru - no entry set
  • Searched history (Android and Windows) for visits of mail.ru - no entry
  • Delete browsing data (Android): works short-term, first suggestion after deletion is is monero.org with letter m, mail.ru showed after a few times typing 'm' in the adress bar.
  • Searched for newly installed apps on android phone - max. 1-2 new apps installed within the last weeks, would classify them as reliable.
  • Searched for newly installed apps and total scan for viruses on Windows Laptop - no new Apps installed, no virus found by MS Windows integrated scanner.

Would be glad if anybody got any tips on this.

Kind regards

I suspect that this out of the hands of Firefox and is down to a change in the memory management in Android 13, but with Android 12 (and earlier) private tabs would stay in existence for quite a while.

With Android 13, I barely need to run another program for them to vanish.

Firefox is reloading content whenever switching between ravs

I'm running Firefox Beta for Android 104.0b7 (Build #2015898507), e305d4cd2+ AC: 104.0.7, cc0e6a515c GV: 104.0-20220816121120 AS: 93.7.2

Whenever I switch between tabs it appears as though Firefox is reloading page content from the server. Not only is this annoyingly slow but it makes it near impossible to copy information from one website to another.

Example: I have all my passwords stored in the secure password app on my nextcloud server. I access a website like usnews.com chose to login via their web page, open a new tab to load my nextcloud, find usnews.com and copy my username, change tab again, us news returns to original page and I have to chose login again, and I paste my username, return to nextcloud tab, usnews.com isn't nopen I have to search again to find it and then copy my password, change tab back to usnews again the page is reloaded and I have to chose login again, and my username has been lost so pasting my password does not help much.

Is this a bug? If so how can I help capture data to assist with its resolution? If reloading is a feature, is there something I can do to disable it?

Hello.

Every time I click on my shortcuts, a new tab opens.  Opened tabs accumulate during the day and cause the browser to slow down.
Is it possible for me to open shortcuts on the same page without opening different tabs?
For example: When I click on the twitter shortcut from the login page while on the Facebook page, is it possible to enter Twitter on the same page without opening a new tab?

I have probably over 1000 tabs on my Android that I wanted to start to bookmark in my desktop. I find that most of them are inactive now, which I appreciate the intent, but I never asked for. Now when I have time to deal with them, I have tried multiple ways to bring them to my computer or bookmark them from my phone, but nothing seems to work. It doesn't seem like there is much of anything that you can do with inactive tabs even if you share them to your desktop.

It is my understanding from trying to research this, that the Collections you create on your phone are not synced to my Firefox account so that doesn't seem helpful. Is there an extension that could solve this for me? It doesn't work to try to bookmark them from my phone because they don't show up in my desktop bookmark folder that I assigned.

The thing that has worked best so far is to Share my tabs to a temporary folder [Phone Inactive Tabs] on my desktop then search (for example: recipe) then open some in tabs and bookmark them. However, after I have categorized them into the proper bookmark folder (Food/Recipes), they disappear from that folder when I try to delete them from my temporary folder. It does the same thing if I save tabs into OneTab first.

Can someone please help me so that I don't lose years of things that I really want to keep? I would appreciate it! It would be helpful if I could even share all my inactive tabs (or even URLs) into a folder on my desktop so that I could search and bookmark them at a later time without it deleting all that work. Thanks in advance!
