If I'm using Private mode and I close Firefox completely. Next time I start up Firefox, it starts up with the Private browsing page. I have to click on the Private icon to switch to Public mode.

Basically looking for an option to "Always start in Public mode", "Always start in Private mode" or "Always start in Last Close Mode"

Is there a way to increase the touch target (the "tappable area") of the "X" button that closes a tab?

When closing multiple tabs in a row, it's really hard to press with accuracy, and I often find myself tapping into the tab "square" itself and opening/switching to that tab by mistake.

Dear Community.

The Login on the Android app doesn't seem to work for me.

After scanning the QR-Code and Login in. It shows me my logged in Firefox Account. But somehow doesn't apply it onto the app.

What could be the cause of the problem? I've already reinstalled the app.

Thanks for your help.

The Guardian website: 40 second hangs when using tabs (FF Android)

Hi!

Version: FF Android 101.2.0 (plus other version stuff I can provide if needed), Android 12

Just thought I'd report this because it appears to be a consistent, reasonably long-standing issue (months) on a popular news site. Or is it "just me"?

Website: https://www.theguardian.com/uk (several million uniques visitors per month)

Expected behaviour: I am able to open various links on this website as backround tabs and continue browsing.

Actual behaviour: 1. After a couple are opened, Firefox for Android hangs for very close to 40 seconds then does a deep redraw/repaint of all tabs and continues to function until I next try to open another background tab from that website. 2. During the hang tab interface continues to redraw, but the pages are not repainted and no taps events work. 3. At the end of this hang time, the pages appear to redraw from scratch and the context pop-up for the third long-press appears on top of whichever tab I was looking at.

It is 100% repro for me -- long-press fails when attempting to open the 3rd background tab, but repaint failure occurs earlier. There is something toxic happening.

Curiously, when I next view my Android Home screen, there is some sort deep refresh/repaint, as if it has been swapped-out or GC'd etc.

e.g. Is there some massive memory blow-out happening?

Context/workarounds: 1. I have tried clearing all browsing data and using a guess account on the phone. 2. I have no addins installed. 3. Neither Chrome nor FF Desktop exhibit this behaviour. This ia FF Android specific

Thanks!

I am a student using Android I installed Firefox believing in privacy and features. Now I feel like cheated because it doesn't provide the necessary options of print to PDF and option-full share menu.

I wonder why on earth such a famous browser doesn't provide these basic very basic necessary options !

I really don't want to leave Firefox because I love it in a way ! Yet I am being forced to move to another better browser because it's my routine requires it.

I am waiting for the next update without hope.

I would post the com but I didn't read if that was a TOS violation here...
