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.

Hello,

I've been using Dolphin for a few years because of its interface, where tabs are displayed above the address bar.

But it hasn't been updated in over a year, so would like to move to Firefox… but FF on Android doesn't support that feature out of the box while it does in the web version.

Is there an add-on available?

Thank you.

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.

How to save inactive tabs to desktop

I have probably over 1000 tabs on my Android that I wanted to start to bookmark in my desktop. I find that most of them are inactive now, which I appreciate the intent, but I never asked for. Now when I have time to deal with them, I have tried multiple ways to bring them to my computer or bookmark them from my phone, but nothing seems to work. It doesn't seem like there is much of anything that you can do with inactive tabs even if you share them to your desktop.

It is my understanding from trying to research this, that the Collections you create on your phone are not synced to my Firefox account so that doesn't seem helpful. Is there an extension that could solve this for me? It doesn't work to try to bookmark them from my phone because they don't show up in my desktop bookmark folder that I assigned.

The thing that has worked best so far is to Share my tabs to a temporary folder [Phone Inactive Tabs] on my desktop then search (for example: recipe) then open some in tabs and bookmark them. However, after I have categorized them into the proper bookmark folder (Food/Recipes), they disappear from that folder when I try to delete them from my temporary folder. It does the same thing if I save tabs into OneTab first.

Can someone please help me so that I don't lose years of things that I really want to keep? I would appreciate it! It would be helpful if I could even share all my inactive tabs (or even URLs) into a folder on my desktop so that I could search and bookmark them at a later time without it deleting all that work. Thanks in advance!
