On android each time I click on a link from bookmark it is opened in a new tab.
After I have done reading the tab I push the back button, and I'm moved to the home page, but the tab I have just read isn't closed! After a while I have lots of old tabs that I don't need anymore, and I have to close them. It's so annoying!
Previous version of Firefox (fennec) used to close the tab after I pushed the back button. Please restore the old functionality.
Thanks for submitting an idea to the Mozilla Connect community! Your idea is now open to votes (aka kudos) and comments.
An idea could be to long press (hold) the back button to close tab. Then you won't close the tab accidentally.
Well, isn't this annoying?
If this is how Mozilla is going to wear it's Open Source cape, I don't see how it's going to come out of the downward spiral it's already in.
Gathering traction for an idea before considering it is one thing. OP is barely an idea. Stripping out a feature and playing hide-n-seek with the community, making the userbase (or whatever is left of it) go desperate for basic features is the secret recipe for a product implosion.
@SbernecchiaAny idea of the version number which still had this feature?
yes please. back goes away from the page, but it stays open. it should either stay on the open page (and require long press) or (better) close the page when leaving. it could be an option in settings.
