It'd be helpful to have a new tab button next to the address bar on mobile for easy access.

Currently, opening a new tab requires two clicks - one to open the tab window, and another on the "+" button to open the new tab. This also requires interaction with two different parts of the screen that are far apart from each other (top right vs bottom right), which is hard to do one-handed or in a hurry, especially on larger phones.

 

I'm a heavy tab user, and the option to have a "+" button directly next to the address bar would make it easier to open a new tab quickly.

Yess, this is so important for me, would save a lot of time, please just replace the home button with a new tab button that leads you to the home.

Signed up just to support this.  I want to switch on mobile, but this is a huge roadblock.

I also would like a new tab button and don't need the home button.

Joined the community, just to respond to this post. Please add New tab button. Feb/2024 still nothing. Also, I have no problem if it is only added to nightly version. Its can inside customize -> Show new tab button. Just do it, maybe not as default enabled but an option to add it if user needs it.

I want that feature too.

Please add also: ctrl+tab, shift+ctrl+tab, ... and other shortcuts like in the desktop version.

Please add the option to open new tab automatically,  like the Firefox has on windows for pc.

One touch new tab on mobile

I have to long press the tab switcher and then press new tab. I’d like to be able to open a new tab with one tap or gesture

I’m moving from Chrome to Firefox, and I’d really like to keep using Firefox. However, this is just an essential feature to me.

This is such a clear pain point and such an easy fix. I'm bewildered!
