Just updated Firefox to version 112.2 on my iPad which has iOS 15 Did the update via the apple App Store. Relaunched (restarted) Firefox and ALL tabs that were open are Gone! I can’t find the “restore previous session” option anywhere.

Can you tell me where to find it? How do I get the previous session back?!?

I’ve been using Firefox for years. Firefox not starting up after the update with all the previous tabs open is devastating to me. I need to get the previous session restored. Please help

Hi,

All of a sudden I started getting a strange download indication which didn't show up when I looked for it. Since then, when I press "+ New Tabs," a new tab doesn't open. A new tab opens only when I've clicked on a new link for a topic.

I cleared the cache, restarted my phone twice and un-and re-installed Firefox twice. I was originally synced with Firefox on my other phones, but I don't want to sign in again with that email until this problem is fixed. I haven't opened Firefox again on my previous phones since this all started. I'm going to cry if those versions are "infected" with this problem as well. I just can't erase all the data I've previously accumulated within Firefox on those devices, either.

Now I've looked in Firefox Support for this problem and I've looked again and again for a way to restart in Safe Mode, but I can't find it. Could someone please help me diagnose and fix this issue?

Hello, I'm writing to describe a recurring problem I'm facing while using Firefox on my Android device, and I need your help to find a solution.

The issue is that my tabs keep getting accidentally deleted when I scroll up and down. The touchscreen on my device is highly sensitive, and simple scrolling often triggers the "left or right swipe" action, causing the current tab to close. This is incredibly frustrating as I like to keep my tabs organized, and having to reopen them repeatedly is time-consuming.

I've tried looking for a solution in the Firefox for Android settings config:about, but I haven't been successful so far. Is there any way to disable or adjust this feature so that left swiping no longer closes my tabs?

I'm a dedicated Firefox user and would like to continue using this browser, but this problem is significantly impacting my browsing experience. I would greatly appreciate it if you could provide me with a solution to this issue.

Thank you in advance for your assistance!

Best regards, Denise

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)

I'm on Firefox 127.0 (42448) ios and all my private tabs were closed on update and now whenever I make a private tab it disappears after the app is closed or refreshes. It's kind of behaving like the setting where private tabs are closed automatically but when I looked in the privacy settings of firefox ios it's not there anymore. Does anyone else have this issue? I know theres an existing problem with tabs for firefox but I don't think this is exactly the same because my normal tabs are totally fine.

I'm having the same problem as this guy.

I have a large number of open tabs in Firefox on my iPhone, a mixture of old and very old. I've been trying to go through the tabs and deal with them -- in some sense they are all todo items that I left open at least semi-deliberately.

If I tap on a thumbnail to load a tab, Firefox instead loads a blank page. If I tap the address bar after that, Firefox loads the new tab page, not the site corresponding to the tab that I selected. If I tap and hold a tab's thumbnail, Firefox crashes.

It was the case temporarily (possibly a bug) that some of these tabs would place a TLS failure icon in the left of the address bar when selected, while the blank page was displayed. Tapping on that would display the tab title, but not the tab URL. No longer is that TLS failure icon ever visible.

Hi, this has happened twice recently where I have had a number of tabs open on firefox on my phone and suddenly they all vanish. They do not show up in recently closed. If they were marked inactive I have no way to access them. I have no idea what happened but it’s really frustrating as between the two times this has happened I have lost probably 150+ tabs.

When I am finished with a tab and close it, and then close down Firefox app, when I click back into Firefox the tabs that I have closed are still there open. How can I stop this from happening without having to "quit" and clear cache etc all the time? Surely when you close a tab it should stay closed?

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?

Is there a way to search through my open tabs? If not, PLEASE create that feature.

Also, is there a way to see the previous pages that have been opened in a tab? Right now, I have to just keep backspacing through previous tabs hoping to find the one I'm looking for. If not, please ad d a way to view and select previously opened tabs before I start backspacing through them.

Is there a way to sort open tabs, at least alphabetically? If not, that would be a very nice feature to have.

I'm using Android 12.

Procedure 1. Open Firefox iOS 2. Open some pages 3. Force-close the app 4. Open Firefox again

Expected result - The tabs that previously opened is kept and possible to access

Actual result - The tabs exists, but displaying default new tab page, cannot visit the page - pageback/forward is not working - All tabs are affected

note - By pressing down pageback/forward, there is history which says "internal://local/sessionstore?url=..." is generated. - There are some people on my local app store (JP) complaining the same issue. - After erasing and reinstalling the app, this issue happened again.

The app is almost unusable because of this bug.

I've had this problem of on my iPhone 14 Mac Firefox (now v113.2 where )tabs are taking long to delete and they freeze once I try to. After waiting awhile, anywhere up to 30 seconds or more, they either finally delete, but still slow or the app crashes and that seems to make the deletions fast, like they originally used to be. I've seen that other people seem to have this problem and I just wondered if a solution for this has finally been found?

Thanks in advance to anyone who knows how to fix this...

I saw a few others posting about this on reddit, with no solution. I usually try to keep my open tab count low on my phone, because this happened one time maybe a year ago. My recently closed tabs only shows those from this current browsing session. From my pc, synced tabs only shows the few that are still left open. I don't have the Inactive Tabs option switched on. My pc's open tabs are unharmed (phew). I DID clear cache and cookies on my pc earlier today, but that shouldn't close tabs on another device!!
