When typing letters of a bookmarked URL into the adress bar and that URL is already opened in another tab, "Switch to Tab" appear behind that suggestion. Clicking mouse-wheel on that suggestion is not possible currently, please implement ability to click on it with middle mousewheel to open the URL in a second tab aswell :)

Browser should save our website cookie so we avoid popup on visited pages

As you all know when you visit a website the first time you see a popup asking if you want to accept all cookies or only the ones that allow the website to function.  But many people use the feature to delete all cookies when their browser is closed to protect their privacy. And next time the person open the same website again the popup ask if you want to allow cookies or not.  Well it would be nice if firefox somehow could remember our last choice example in our "online firefox account"...

Use arrow keys to select search suggestions rather than search history

When searching, you used to be able to use the arrow keys to navigate between suggested searches. This feature was useful. Now using the arrow keys jumps past these sugestions so I have to take my hands off the keyboard to select one of them, greatly slowing down productivity. Please undo this change or add a setting to change it back.

Get the results we searched for

Come up with a Mozilla search tool to filter results, only return results that are relevant to our search terms.  Example - Searching for a radio class, don't want hundreds of pages of results offering Rado watches with no results for radio classes. Include search options like, "contains only all terms" , "contains exact phrase" , "exclude word" ,   Searching for a phone #? Only get results of web sites having that number, not a list of phone book sites.  Looking for a specific company...

Add a new private window option to the top right menu

In the top-right kebab menu (Firefox Nightly and presumably regular mobile), add a new private tab option. Unless I'm missing a route for doing so, it currently takes 2 presses to do this. Chrome has this option for incognito, and it is convenient.

Unable to set home page to about:blank or a blank page not an option in Firefox for iOS

There is no setting that allows me to have a blank home page in Firefox for iOS (possibly Android as well?) I would like to have the option to set my “home” to be a blank page. I don’t want the home with shortcuts and other nonsense. I’m an experienced internet user and I find the lack of being able to set this option both frustrating and borderline insulting.  Please put me back in the driver’s seat ty.

Tab-scroll: intuitive mobile tab managment

When using your mobile phone, scrolling through long webpages is one of the most intuitive ways of reading entire websites. Once you want to switch to a new tab, this "intuitivity" dissappears completely. To switch to a new tab, you need to go to the up/downside of your phone, click on the tab management and scroll through a long line of open tabs, resulting in the need of a second hand when using your phone or a needless loss of time and difficulties when holding your phone in one hand, by...

Add a check box to Automatically Find in Page

Sometimes I accidentally follow a link to a video on YouTube instead of opening it in a new tab.  When I come back from the link to my subscriptions, the browser shows only the first block of YouTube videos, when I might have been on the 15th block (from scrolling to the bottom of the subscriptions page 14 times) before I accidentally followed the link.  It would be nice if there was a checkbox on the Find in Page controls at the bottom of the screen to automatically search the current page...

Markdown files should become first class citizens, like HTML.

For example this opens up security issues that could be handled natively in the browser and replace this kind of extension: https://github.com/simov/markdown-viewer#advanced-options

Search suggestion language setting

I would like it if Firefox's address bar search suggestions had a setting that let me choose a language for my search suggestions, because I'm tired of dealing with the popular culture of my country, because it's not nice and it's often disgusting and severely harmful to me, even without leaving my room and even worse without internet.
