Hello,

I'm not able to upload files to certain websites using Firefox on Android.

When selecting a file for the phone's file manager, the file upload simply not starting.

However, Firefox on iOS doesn't have that issue.

Firefox version used is the latest one and it is the one from Google Play.

Tried another browser and it works great.

Some addons can't be installed on Firefox Nightly for Android (redux)

This is a follow-on to https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1401783, I have the same problem - I've followed https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/extended-add-support (which is for some bizarre reason marked "no longer maintained"), to create the custom collection https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/collections/17515772/raxod502/ so that I can override the arbitrary blocking of third-party extensions that Mozilla applies by default.

This allows me to install most extensions but for some reason https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/duochrome/ is not showing up in the interface on Firefox for Android, despite being in the custom collection. No information is given about why it is not showing up. I am not aware of any reason why it would be blocked. Here's the manifest.json: https://github.com/FreshSupaSulley/Duochrome/blob/main/firefox/manifest.json

How can I fix this and use whatever extensions I want to use, or at least get a valid error message about why Mozilla is blocking the extension?

Creating a new thread since the older one just says "Even using that approach, not all add-ons are supported in Firefox for Android at the present time", which doesn't help at all - there is no reason why any addon should be blocked for mobile usage unless it is explicitly configured as such, and even if that were reasonable, it doesn't help explain what specifically is wrong with the extension I'm trying to install.

Both 'Enhanced Tracking Protection' and 'Site permissions' show exceptions and an explanation of what they are (for 'Enhanced Tracking Protection' anyway) but seem to have no way to add an exception.

How are exceptions added 'Enhanced Tracking Protection' and 'Site permissions' in Fennec?

Thanks

Issue 1: Why does Mozilla heat up so fast even though my device has no problems at all, and when will it be fixed? Because I've used Edge before, and it works very well and consumes little of my device resources. Issue 2 After the last update of Mozilla version 127.0.1, the use of in private mode became more difficult to use, and with my habit of keeping tabs open in private mode for a long time, sometimes up to 3 months. And I'd like to know when Mozilla will make it better for people who like to use it privately, because I don't like to use general mode, it's like there's constant surveillance for Mozilla users, and there are also cookies, so I don't like these and use them in privacy mode all the time I surf the web.And why is it harder for me to use it in In private mode? I have a hard time adjusting the buttons. I don't like the button that comes in place of the homepage button.

I've seen too many threads about this issue. This has been around for four years straight. No one ever managed to solve this problem and developers didn't care either. I've tried everything I've found so far: 1. Force sync on Android after sync on Desktop; 2. Disconnect and reconnect everything; 3. Uninstall and install again Firefox on both devices; 4. Clear data on both devices; 5. Login in different ways (e-mail, qr code, etc.); 6. Turn off one device, sync and turn on later; 7. Disconnect all other devices that isn't related with this problem; 8. Activate and deactivate 2 Factor login; Anyways, this sync feature doesn't seem to work at all. Almost all threads ended up abandoned, just like the app itself. Do anyone ever found a reliable solution for this?

Firefox for Android gets frozen when using it to open large PDF files. I have been meaning to change my default PDF viewer app, but once Firefox has been set as the default PDF viewer for Android, there will no way to change this default; as Firefox default's don't have the option to be deleted through Android's App Info menu.
