Hello,

My Firefox Android tabs in grid view constantly get reset.

I can open 5 new tabs and them be in order and at the bottom, since they are the last viewed. Then when I reopen Firefox they are gone and tabs I had closed before are back there.

My history tab is also always blank unless I search.

I appreciate any help :)

For some reason my browser occasionally jumps over to a private browsing tab and I may never realize Firefox has performed this action. I may continue with my research for any length of time when I may need to look at something other than my browser, say jump over to a Note or some other function not having to do with Firefox, when I return I find maybe an hour of research has automatically been closed and of course there is no record of that lost work. This function is really frustrating additionally it's tricky that a link to another site or page of information can cause the Firefox Browser to open the following tab in Private Mode, then automatically close when it becomes necessary to look at some other functions on my Android device, everything is wiped out gone lost no way to retrieve the info.

What ever happened to Lazarus, the app that always brought back lost work, private or otherwise? That was an excellent and very helpful tool. Is there some other way unknown to me where I can retrieve those closed private tabs, how do I stop the links from auto-opening privately, and I'd like to know how to stop private tabs from closing when I leave those tabs to focus on something other for a split second.

Please advise. Thank you.

When I try to use the share menu, it's not functioning and blank of options to select.

I used to be able to restart FF and it would restore the menu. Lately, not only does restarting lose my most recent tabs but it also fails to restore the share menu.

I REALLY need to be able to consistently save tabs to my reading app and Google Keep as a part of my daily PKMS processes.

FYI (and Unrelated) the share menu's Print does function (brings up printing screen) but Print to PDF just hangs in a neverending download process. This also happens when attempting to download certain .ics files from Gmail. Might be related, might not be.

When the share options are available, it works as intended.

TIA!

Any way not have a history or automatically prune the history on Android? Without deleting all other data?

What I want is: 1. History should either not be saved, or alternatively auto-deleted after a certain time (e.g. only keep history of the past hour), or as a last resort get deleted when closing the browser. 2. I want to keep the ability to restore recently closed tabs. I realize this is a bit in conflict to not having a history, but just remembering the last few closed tabs would be enough, or all tabs closed in the last few minutes. 3. When I restart the browser (after pressing "Quit"), I want it to restore my previously open tabs 4. When I restart the browser (after pressing "Quit"), I want to keep cookies and logins (i.e. not get logged out everywhere, and have the cookie dialogues after restarting the browser). 5. Not super important, but ideally I want to keep my saved favicons/website logos in the bookmarks and on the new tab page after a restart.

So basically I just want to way for the history to be empty or automatically pruned, without sanitizing any other data on exit or browsing in a kind of permanent private mode.

I haven't yet found the correct configuration to do this. If there is an extension or about:config option for doing this, please also let me know (I'm happy to switch to Firefox Beta or Fennec F-Droid which have full extension support and expose about:config functionality.)

Thank you in advance!

Hi,

Taken the following quote from your FAQ regarding Firefox Android:

"Delete a specific webpage from your browsing history"

This quite simply does not work. I am trying to delete a webpage, but it still shows up on "Firefox suggests" when typing similar words in search bar in browser.

Additional info just in case:

  • No, not confusing this with my google search history.
  • No, I am not syncing the history back in the android browser.

Any suggestions?

Tldr: it would be much more usable to have the back button return to History search results, and also to be able to right click those results to open in a new tab.

When using the history feature, most of the time I am looking for something but I have done a bunch of looking for that thing and so my history is kind of polluted with false results.

These results might be a month back. If I'm trying to go through those false results, I need to open more than one. The history search feature, though, doesn't persist beyond a single click, and does not have the opening new tab function. So, if I am to go through those results, I have to keep redoing the same history search.

The new search setting on the address bar is great especially after you decided to diminish your app by only showing me 2 history in an update a year ago. Now i can just search my history again with more than 2 results. However, i want it defaulted to search my history. Why is Google the default and how can i change it?

cleared browser history and cookies, history is empty but when i search in it is shows some websites that persist https://imgur.com/a/H8nBmEk and the website shows in autocomplete search suggestions (I know I can technically disable history suggestions in settings but I want them, they are useful)obviously what I showed in the video is pretty much not harmful but I also have this problem with an adult site which can be annoying when someone uses your phone to search stuff. so, any way to fix that problem? currently checked that on 166.0a1 nightly, also latest beta probably also a problem in regular Firefox

I'm on version 112.2.0 and I cannot disable the "feature" that haphazardly shoves my history in to groups that have nothing to do with each other but Firefox THINKS are related. The support post I've found discussing this promised there'd be a "disable search groups" option in version 97, but I'm on version 112.2.0, which (for those of you counting) is 5 mainline iterations afterwards. How do I fix this? It's constantly breaking my History.
