Hey

Im trying to switch to Firefox on my Android but one thing I'd really like is some less obscure navigation buttons.

The tablet ui got actual buttons on the toolbar so I forced tablet ui with Xposed App Settings which actually worked but resulted in every time I pressed the addressbar the app would crash. Not sure why. Happened in both Normal, Beta and Nightly.

Is there an alternative method of getting those buttons?

What a bummer.

For a Firefox, this mobile app is pretty limited.

Still .. it's almost there when just forcing tablet mode. It just inexplainably crashes when you press the addressbar and it shows all the suggestions, etc.

There's really no way of getting back those back/forward buttons? Maybe even a refresh button? I mean, honestly, what do we need that wide-ass addressbar for?
