Hello I am German and not used to write in english. I use Firefox on my Xperia device. Within the last Update I got the new function to collect the tabs. I created several collections and named them. After I put in the tabs and deleted them in the list. So they were only in the collections. Today I wanted to use one Tab out of the collection. But the whole collection Was not any more there, same with 2 Others! Where are these collections and the tabs now? I did not delete them and I need them.

Where are they and how can I use them again?

Kind regards

Mischa

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.

I want to remove or set my home screen to something else other than the Firefox default.

I've managed to remove everything from the default home screen, which is a start. But I don't want a home screen at all.

Ideally, Firefox would just resume as it was the previous time it opened. That's how it worked until a recent update.

Like the title says but first some context Since the horrible android browser REDESIGN this has happened, never before, im using the latest version and this has happened with every update since that unneeded and unwanted NEW firefox came out Before i could have up to 60 tabs in normal navigation, and the same amount in private, watch videos and animations at least ten tabs of those on each browsing section, the worst that could happen eas all private tabs would close and that was on rare cases Now it (closing)tends to happen 3 days or so, no matter how many on normal navigation or even private but the recurring thing is, opening videos sometimes work, but sometimes the entire browser crashes and with each crash all normal tabs dissapear as well and since you removed so many options including about:blank and other abouts that j knea how to use to recover pages, now is simply an entire session GONE and this has happenes 3 entire times already, the first time it happened i lost months of browsing i had prior to the dreaded update, they were gone and since, i try to use even less the browser, but is the only one with addon support(same addons i installed firefox years ago on android and guess what, none of them were active when the redesign installed the first time or worked and still the crash happened, so if none of your technicians can provide anything other than the boiler plate reaponse of " please update to the most recent version" (which both already are, firefox and android system) "disable addons" which they were the first crash, and reinstall(which i did when i tried to migrate to opera before i realized i can't install a good adblocker on their android version), then DO NOT BOTHER on answering(also, even webm format as well as many others seem to crash it JUST FINE)

I don't know if this is an issue being encountered by anyone else, but few days ago all of a sudden twitter.com stopped opening on Firefox for Android. I trying disabling all my add-ons and turning of protection as well, nothing.

The windows browser is having no issues at all. But for some reason the android just won't open twitter. Everytime I try I get the error: "Cannot Complete Request

Additional information about this problem or error is currently unavailable."

Tried on a different network and a different mobile browser, all seems to be working. Any ideas?

First and foremost I am trying to find the homepage. I have read articles on how to set the homepage but the images don't look like my Android app. I will attach screenshots I have my settings and nowhere does it say anything about home. Any ideas of how to set a homepage so that I will have one place to go to when I first start when I open Firefox that would be awesome cuz right now I don't like the way it set up. it takes me to my account page and I can't do anything.

My next question is tabs. I don't see anything about opening a new tab or setting a new tab so any information on that would be most appreciative.

Thanks for anyone who will assist.

Just received 79.0.5 update. I have disabled all autocomplete options but if I type 'f' in URL bar it autocompletes as 'facebook'. Similarly, 't' completes as 'twitter', 'i' as 'instagram' etc. I really don't need or want my browser doing this. I tried about:config which seems to be disabled. Next I tried nightly which has about:config enabled but still couldn't disable autocomplete. I'd rather not use nightly tbh so a fix for ordinary Firefox would be appreciated.

So I just downloaded the Firefox mobile app for Android and I am lost. I am trying to find what I would consider a homepage like on chrome or edge and I'm not finding anything. Where do I find it or how do I begin using Firefox mobile app? Where do I go to like set up.my homepage the way I want it? And how do I view it what's the URL? Like I said I'm totally lost this looks like a different universe to me. I did just to find a support site that I'm hoping we'll answer some of my newbie questions. The link is https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/new/mobile. Attached are the only two screenshots that I have because I just can't seem to navigate Firefox app.

Hey I think version 69 still had the 'Recently closed tabs' view, but I cant find it on version 81. I already searched this site and also googled it.

I closed a tab accidentaly that i opened some time ago. So searching through my history won't do it since it was an article of a site where i opened and read like 20 articles, I also cant remember the name of it.

I guess it was removed in favour of a more simplistic UI? If so I would really like the devs to consider adding that back in, I know that there is an option for reopening the tab right after closing it, but it is possible to miss it or your device just bugging/slowing down on you when you do this. This happened a few times to me.

Thanks in advance!

I was trying to download a pdf from my banking app which never had an issue before. I get the download failed in the notifications dropdown men. I don't know if it makes any difference but it's always 2 messages and they recur every day. Not sure what It was that I was trying to download this last time but it's still trying to get the file. (pdf) I just want it to stop. I will use Dolphin or something to get files until it is fixed in Firefox. I delete cache, quit, close all tabs etc. I had already tried the uninstall & reinstall to no avail. Whatever it's still trying to get its a pdf also. Note 9 One UI 2.0. Android 10
