Hi I'm using Firefox Android version 106.1.0 (Build #2015909131), on an Android 12 Lenovo tablet. Every time I search and open a link, a new page opens, not a new tab. I know there is an option for opening links in new tabs in the Windows version, is the same setting available in the Android version. If so, where can I find it, please.

  1. 1. I want to able to change the order of the tabs, for I'm unable to really use the browser this way. Chrome and 1DM both have the ability to change the order of the tabs by holding each one and moving it above or after a specific tab.
  2. 2. Another thing is to remove the full-screen notification in the bottom, or add a setting that makes it go away faster when someone toggles the full screen on a video player.

I sometimes get the preview picture of the last closed tab shown on another tab when viewing the tab list.

This also happens so that a private browsing page that I've closed before shows up as a preview picture on a non-private browsing tab, which I'm think is a bit of a privacy concern.

This has happened to me many times and for a long time.

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.

When I want to open a bookmark in a new tab, there's no Settings button. If I'm in a tab I wish to keep open, the Settings button is there. I'm able to use it to open the new tab, and then I can't go anywhere unless I know the address, because I can't access my bookmarks. I've been waiting a long time for this to be fixed. I don't see any logical reason for this, so I wonder if I'm missing something or if a setting got changed. Please help me access my bookmarks from a fresh tab.

Hi all,

I've read a bit before, and it seems to be impossible to get the tabs available directly (FF Android), as it used to be : a real pitty in my opinion (I did tried to get used to the new Firefox, but really, I am wasting my time to switch on my many "tabs") I guess that this option won't be available again?

Here is my additional question then : how to switch between tabs in one click, or how to a dedicated close a tab in 1 click? - yes, I know that I can swipe left of right, nice feature, but it doesn t do the job efficiently - I know too the "tab" menu but it means at minimum 2 clicks

I've been using ff almost since the beginning as default browser, but since the tabs had been suppressed , I am less and less on my tablets. Let's hope now you are not planning to perform the same with FF for pc...

PS : as "tabs" are not any more tabs (don't trust me, just search "tabs for paperwork" and compare with the so called "tabs" now in FF), I strongly suggest that you rename your feature to something else)

PS2 : really sorry if my post appears a bit angrier, i mean no offense as I do recognize the amazing work whic had been performed along al those years, but seriously, suppressing basics stuff is the worst idea (it reminds me a bit opera, which used to be outdated, but which I am using again now as they improved a lot, and thanks to the FF no tabs policy)

When I open firefox on my laptop, it does exactly what I want it to do, and displays a blank tab. No pockets, no bookmarks, no past tabs, nothing. Just a tab, and a blank background. In order for this to work, I had to change multiple settings and set [browser.sessionstore.resume_from_crash] in about:config to "false."

Firefox on my mobile devices is missing most of these settings, and of course, mobile Firefox does not have about:config (a fact which I find incredibly frustrating). The only setting I have found that stops tabs from reopening in a new session is dot menu > settings > general > tabs which offers me these choices:

o Never x After one day o After one week o After one month

Given that I use Firefox multiple times a day, even selecting the shortest possible setting means that my tabs will always reopen when I start a new session. I do not want tabs restoring! If I want to restore a session, I will use "restore previous session." I don't need the app doing it for me, unless I ask. How can I turn off this incredibly irritating feature?
