It would be very helpful if

1. in the search field, it should be possible to search not only within the active tab but also within all open tabs (for example, with a corresponding checkbox to determine whether all tabs should be searched).

2. it should be possible to search in the history not only for the URL itself but for the entire website content. After all, who hasn't experienced this: You have read something, but can't remember where. But you still know approximately when it was. So it would make sense to be able to limit the time range accordingly, for example to be able to select the range on a timeline. In the background, Firefox would then presumably have to load and search all the pages that were visited in the said time interval and are no longer in the cache.

Kind regards from Switzerland,

Search open tabs, especially useful Mobile browsers, better than auto close 2 week old tab by far, "collections" unhelpful because only basic website name, not specific name of page

a "Search all tabs" field would be a lovely addition to the top of the new "Firefox View"
