Put the share button at the top level

Personally, when I use Firefox on my phone, it's to do a quick search. From there I only need 2 options: - close the tab, because I got my answer. - share my search to friends, programs, tasks ... And I find that in Firefox mobile UI, having to click two times for the share button is annoying. If I could find in the top level bar the share and close page button it would be great. When do you think?

Switch tab by sliding finger horizontally on address bar

I would love to have an option to switch tabs by sliding a finger horizontally on address bar. It makes the user experience much more easy and flowy as you do not need to two extra taps to go where you want.

Need to get companies to accept transactions on Firefox

I have had difficulty on several company websites in completing transactions using Firefox.  First experience was with paying Lowe's credit card bills.  Kept reversing month and day.  Yesterday it was placing an order for a part with LG.  When I resorted to a phone order to a very noisy call center, they confirmed that Firefox doesn't work for them.  It kept erasing my information so I couldn't complete the order.  Maybe that's a good thing.  Was finally able to reload the dreaded Chrome and...

Support Pen Input for dragging tabs

I cannot drag tabs, either within a firefox window, or to its own window, while using a pen input such as my Wacom tablet. It works with a mouse just fine. I don't like having to switch over to a mouse to use this feature, as I do use it quite frequently.

Please make the hotkey for "restore previous session" work everytime

Please make the hotkey for "restore previous session" work everytime. Right now ctrl+shift+t restore previously close tab if you still have at least one tab open. but if you close all tab at once, or close the only tab you have open thus closing firefox, when you open firefox again the hotkey doesn't work. I have to go through the open application menu->history->restore prev session again everytime close firefox. Please make the hotkey work at firefox opening. Thanks

Screenshot "copy"/ "transfer"/ "Cancel" be also on top
