As of this evening, Firefox for Android no longer opens links from webpages. This was working just fine yesterday, but any attempt to solve the issue has resulted in failure.

  • I can still open links manually by copy-pasting them into a new tab.
  • I have tried disabling all add-ons, to no effect.
  • I discovered this through my regular browsing, but I have also tested a random Google search page, as well as various links in Mozilla Support.
  • Javascript appears to be unaffected.

Current version is Firefox for Android 106.1.0.

Is there any way from stopping firefox mobile from refreshing itself whenever I go to different app to respond someone's message or copy some info?

I had turned off/on any settings regarding battery usage for this app and it didn't help. I use redmi note 12 and I had same problem on my previous phone redmi 8. I also use Firefox app on iPad air 4 and don't have such problems.

It's literally the only thing that bugs me regarding Firefox, I have no other complaints just this foreced refresh.

Dear Firefox Team,

Whenever I have multiple tabs open in the Firefox iOS app and then exit the app to use a different one, I’ve noticed that all my tabs close. Thankfully, I don’t lose the webpages I was browsing or my browsing history, but it’s quite frustrating to have to go to the tabs section of the app and reopen them manually every single time I switch between apps.

I believe that this behavior could be improved to enhance the overall user experience. It would be fantastic if the Firefox iOS app could retain the open tabs, similar to how other browsers on iOS handle this situation. This would save users valuable time and provide a smoother transition between apps, which is especially important in today’s fast-paced digital environment.

I wanted to bring this issue to your attention in the hopes that it could be considered for a future update to the Firefox iOS app. I believe that making this adjustment would make Firefox even more user-friendly and help retain users who value a seamless mobile browsing experience.

I was browsing through Firefox and as usual I had more than 30 tabs open. I have set them to never close and move old tabs to inactive ones. I was watching a video in a tab and closed Firefox then open another app in cellphone and then after some hours I reopen Firefox and there was only 1 tab (wordreference.com) What happened to the other 30 tabs? They're nowhere. I looked for support and there are many threads and videos for the desktop version but almos inexistent for Firefox Android version. There must be an explanation for this issue and perhaps a solution or workaround. Thank you.

Hello! I’m a bit concerned because firefox has been functioning perfectly fine up to last week, when it started not crashing, but losing the opened sessions. I had many tabs that I would go back to after closing firefox. And then suddenly, when I opened it, there were no tabs at all. This happened again yesterday. And today again. I cannot find the option “restore previous session” like on the computer, so I go to history and manually restore the lost tabs, and of course it isn’t possible to remember everything, so lots are being lost. Could you help me? Many thanks!

On an Android phone you can go to open tabs and close all open apps tabs, etc. On my Android phone I am able to open the folder, empty all open apps and tabs, except for Firefox. Which was my default browser for the past 20yrs. When I open the folder and close everything, Firefox tabs remain with a large lock in the lower right hand corner. Anyone know what's going on?

I would like to know every single option I could possibly turn on or off, or adjust, or do literally anything to, in order to ensure that my tabs stay the [removed] open. I just returned today to find my 70+ tabs, which I regularly use, completely gone. Normally, if Firefox crashes, it at least has the decency to ask me if I’d like to reopen my tabs, but apparently not this time, for whatever reason. Having to scour through my history to reopen all of my tabs one by one is a frustrating endeavor, and while this is slightly uncommon, it still happens consistently and frequently enough to be a major irritant.

I apologize for my somewhat aggressive tone, but I’m about this close to just using another browser if it keeps pulling this [removed]. So to reiterate, I’d like to know every single possible option I could adjust in some way or to some capacity to ensure that my tabs just stay open.

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.

When I opened the Mozilla app just now all of my open tabs were gone. I’ve accidentally clicked the “close all” icon before but I know this was not the case this time. There is nothing available in “history/recently closed”. My regular history appears to be intact, as are my bookmarks. I don’t have the “inactive tabs” setting switched on so they shouldn't have been moved because of that.

Is there any way to restore my open tabs? I had around 90 of them and would be very sad if they’re lost forever.

There has also been an annoying bug recently where whenever I open the app it opens the very first open tab, instead of the one I last used (which is what I have in my settings).

Closed tabs do not stay closed. If I close one or more tabs then close the app, closed tabs will be opened again when I open the app. Even clearing them from history doesn't stop Firefox from reopening closed tabs. This has been an issue since the update on late April - early May 2023. If I navigate to a new site then close the tab, the old site will be reopened on start up.

I have had hundreds of tabs open both on the normal and private side but now when i scroll back to try to access them, they appear blank. For some of them, the title shows, but for others, they are completely blank. I have tried to refresh them but it does not solve the problem, i still cannot see them. I also, cannot hit back / forward to navigate the the previous page for a particular empty tab. This is extremely frustrating because I have things that I need to go back to but now when I do, it is empty. Can you please help to resolve this issue as I really do not want to loose this information that I had on these tabs. I am providing some screenshots to display the issue.

Hello,

This morning, I have accidentally close all my tabs (60+ tabs, which were open for more than 5+ years), while I wanted to reopen a recently closed tab. I suppose that this mistake was due to the sensitivity of the touch screen, since both option are next to each other in the menu.

I see multiple problems here: - There was no dialog asking me if I wanted to close all my tabs. While on Desktop this dialog exists. So for a long time I had no clue what just happened. - As I remember, Firefox did not gave me the opportunity to undo my action.

Now, the question is: How can I reopen all my closed tabs ? The menu "Recently closed tabs" have only 10 items, and those do not belong to the 60+ tabs that have been closed.

Is there a way to reopen all the tabs that I accidentally closed (I do not use Firefox Sync) ?

Thanks in advance

In the last couple of days I noticed that if I open Firefox on my Android phone and let's say open up a couple of new tabs, leave them there and close the app the next time I open up the app randomly some of the newly opened tabs disappear (they are there in the history as visited but the tab isn't open). Also in if I let's say use a tab that already have been open and use it to browse some website when I reopen the app the webpage loaded sometimes doesn't load the last visited site but one that was visited before that one (but still the actual site is in the history). For example let's say I open a tab and I go to site 1, then site 2, then site 3, close and reopen the app the tab I last used could randomly either be missing, instead of site 3 actually load site 1/2 or with equal chance actual work and load site 3 where I left off.

The issue where Firefox on Android does apparent background restarts is still occurring in the most recent release builds.

This was first discussed in the now archived topic https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1379604

It is 100% reproducible. Steps:

1. Go to https://www.theguardian.com/uk 2. Open in background tab one or two internal links to stories in that website 3. Firefox is hang for e.g. 40s then reloads from scratch all open tabs including to other sites 4. The device will behave as if it was recently restarted with all other apps doing UI refresh activity when you next access them

The repro steps are truly simple.

Should we raise this as an iss with the website instead? e.g. Chrome does not and never has had a problem like this on that website.

Cheers,
