I'm not sure why Firefox still bothers to call tabs, "tabs". A tab was originally called that because of its similarity to a filing cabinet's physical tabs where you can see the tab markers and use your thumb to quickly select one. As far as I can see Firefox for Android no longer has tabs. There's no tab bar (and even the URL bar is auto-hidden) and to see the 'tabs' you have to drag down, then select a button and then flip your brain from expecting to see a horizontal row of tabs to a vertical list of them. Similarly, to create a new tab used to involve taping on a plus sign in the same place, right next to the other tabs in the bar. Now, to make a new one you have to redirect your attention from the top of the screen (where tabs have always beenl to a plus sign down the bottom. This smacks of just changing things for the hell of it.

So.... The big ask..... is there any way to get back to the system and layout I'm used to and that I still use without a moment's though when I use Chrome? (Which I'd still rather not do all the time...). I'd like my tabs back please.

Greetings and thank you for your time. I am so tired of every update changing how Firefox Android handles video and audio file types ~ MIMEs. I want a permanent setting to propting us , to ask us what I want to do when we click on a video or audio link. Maybe everyone else just wants to play it. But I don't and I'm sure I'm not alone. -_-

It would be wonderful if Firefox Android would have the same answers as Firefox for desktop specifically: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/change-firefox-behavior-when-open-file#w_download-actions

Maybe I'm not searching correctly but I spent hours searching for a solution before posting this question. Also for previous FFA versions this question is always being asked after every update! WHEN will we as a community stop disabling the ability to control what we do with audio and video links! -_-

Please do not suggest a third-party plugin when this is an innate browser function!

Thank you for your time and consideration.

Downloads Tab or option removed & "Save as PDF" also Removed in the Recent Firefox android Update! Removing Downloads option is not good by any mean, because how am i suppose to resume the paused file or a failed file due to network issue...? second point is about removing the " Save as PDF" Option where i was able to download a webpage as PDF. That was an awesome feature, which is now unavailable.

So, what are you going to do about this..?

I am located in Canada and I have an android device which has a language selection of "English" it does not say US or British, nor Canadian for that matter. I have completed the process of language selection on my phone from scratch and downloaded Mobile Firefox for Androids. Here is the problem: the US english version installs and this is unacceptable. Is there any way to install another version of English manually?

How to change search behavior?

For years I have been a big Firefox fan for desktop, but I have an intolerable problem holding me back from using the mobile version.

When I want to do a search and I type something in the Search/Address bar, and hit the Go/Enter button on my virtual keyboard, Firefox tries to connect to a site with an address equal to what I typed in the Search/Address bar. For instance if I type, "best web browser", Firefox unsuccessfully tries to connect to http://best web browser. Every other browser performs a search using your default search provider, which is a better and more logical implementation of the Search/Address bar.

I know how to perform a search, by clicking my search string that appears next to the search provider I want to use for that search. That is a horrible search method, and hopefully not the only way to perform a search using Mobile Firefox. It might be tolerable on phones with extremely small screens, but I have one of the larger phones screens on the market. My wife also came to this same conclusion on her own, and unprovoked. We would both use Firefox, but can not tolerate the search implementation.

In case this problem is device or carrier specific, I have a Verizon Note 3. My Phone is rooted, and if this is a problem caused by Verizon, I would not be apposed to changing a framework file, or whatever I need to do. My wife has a Verizon Galaxy S4, with identical Firefox behavior. I really hope someone can help me resolve this issue, as I have searched on my own and fiddled around for hours to no avail. The tracking behavior of Chrome leaves me feeling nauseated. Please help.

Hi Could anyone suggest me, how can I configure Firefox on Android to open supported URLs in local applications by default (immediately on page opening, instead to manually touch special button)? Will be perfect, if we can set this option only for some URL patterns/apps

I tried to search in about:config with "app", "extern", "open" but fail on it =(

Firefox has become literally offensive. Alternately, what are some free open source browsers that don't force these on me?

When I select an MP3 file from a podcast site instead of offering me the option to download or automatically downloading, it starts playing in some default player. I almost always want to download so I can play it in a better player that won't crash when I stop and start it often. I have a Razr HD and have this problem with Chrome also. My old Sprint EVO 4G browser would always ask if I wanted to download or play the file. It was great! Please help!
