Steps to reproduce:

1. Start to write something on Facebook (same issue when writing in this form for this bug report).
2. Tap the Tabs icon (to get the list of tabs).

Actual results:

I get  a grey screen except the Android status bar at the top.

Expected results:

I should have got the list of tabs.

100% reproducible. Note: if I tap somewhere else first to remove the focus from the text area before tapping the Tabs icon, then I get the list of tabs as expected.

I actually need to tap the Tabs icon twice before getting the grey screen (the first tap gives nothing). This is with Firefox 61.0.2 on the Gemini PDA (not reflashed).

I cannot reproduce this bug with Firefox 62.0b21 on my Samsung Galaxy S7.

Was not able to reproduce in neither Beta or Nightly on Google Pixel C (Android 8.0.0)
What kind of device and Android version do you have?
Are you able to also reproduce the issue on a fresh install of FF or after clearing the appdata?
Do you have any particular addons that might be causing this?

Gemini PDA, with Android 7.1.1 (the one that came with it + upgrades).

After quitting Firefox, clearing the cache & apps data, starting Firefox again, choosing and selecting the focus in the form, I still get the same problem:
1. Tapping once on the Tab icon does nothing.
2. Tapping a second time yields a grey screen.
3. If I tap the Android Back button and tap a third time, this is OK.

I haven't installed any add-on for Firefox on this device.

Same issue with Firefox Beta (62.0b21).

Could you get a log and attach a screenshot with the problem from your device please?

I've seen this rarely. Never been near a computer when it happens so no logs.
Ever confirmed: true
