After updating from version 68 (where I could enable autoplay in general) to version 79, I could only enable audio autoplay for Wifi access. The alternatives were to disable autoplay for both audio and video or to enable autoplay for video only. However, I am also heavily using my Android web browser to play music from my own media center over cellular networks, and with version 79, I could find no way to enable audio autoplay for cellular networks. This makes the new browser version basically unusable for my use case, so I now have actually downloaded and installed an old version 68 APK to re-gain the ability to use the Firefox web browser as audio player, no matter where I am.

Maybe I somehow missed how I can enable audio autoplay independent of the access network. If this is the case, I would be happy if you could guide me how to get there. Otherwise, I think the designers/developers should consider to add a fourth option for generally enabling audio autoplay to support this use case.

Either way, your feedback is highly appreciated. Thanks a lot.

BR, Christ

Since the update of the new Firefox for android I am experiencing the worst possible experience opening a new tab. Let's say that I have

Foo Bar Baz

In my Tab panel

If I open a link from Bar in a new tab and open the Tab panel I still see

Foo Bar Baz

But, if I scroll, I "found" the new Qux bar on the top of the list!

This is very frustating... I expect that opening the tab pane I see Qux on the bottom of the list!

Btw with the new version there is no about:config anymore so I don't know how to customize this behavior

The Chinese font in Firefox Android always looks very strange, and makes readers very uncomfortable. Please see the screenshot below, especially the characters I highlighted -- I think all Chinese readers understand what I'm saying, and the characters 关 and 复 even has only 1/2 width of normal. Really weird. Some characters looks somewhat like Japanese font. From about:config, I find the font's name is ROBOTO, which is a western character font designed by a Google staff, and doesn't cover Chinese character. So I have no idea where the font shown comes from.

Firefox android seems to be the only browser that has such problem. In old versions, we can change the font with the Stylish addon, but there's no such addon in recent new version. As a Chinese user, I almost can't tolerate this problem anymore. In my opinion, the solution is very simple: just use the system font of Android, which is enough.

Hope the developers take this problem into account.

I accidentally added a tab to firefox sync that I do not want to appear in the synced tabs list, and now I can't remove it. I searched for a solution and found a topic from four years ago suggesting to go to Settings > Clear Private Data to find the option to clear synced tabs, but that didn't seem to work. Is there any method to remove your a synced tab or at the very least clear all sync data?

We now have both bookmarks and collections. Both seem to fill the same ecological niche, i.e. allow me to remember pages that I might want to visit again in the future.

What is the idea behind having both? When should you use bookmarks over collections? When should you use collections over booksmarks?

Agony is not being able to see changes in the browser during web development.

There must be a way.

Is it just me, or does Firefox for Android come to us with about:config a feature to hope to have someday, but planning on today is agony-enhancing?

Honestly, I am very pleased when my programming efforts seem to have no effect. It makes my existence have no meaning, creating a stress-free sensation of uselessness, until the brutal pressure of my boss and creditors encroach my blissful bubble.

I like to enjoy seeing my efforts yield nothing while roasting my feet slowly over red hot coals as I sit in my boxers on a 200 pound block of dry ice poking my eye with a freshly-sharpened pencil.

If I could clear cache for just one site, without affecting others, all this would be put into abeyance.

Click on the search bar of the Firefox browser, and enter a string of numbers with “.” in it, or a mixed input with English symbols [.], such as Firefox 80.13, and the search page will not open open.

Logically speaking, here should be the result of opening a search, not a web page.

I hope someone can see and give feedback to the engineer to fix it.

I have a Galaxy Note9 and images downloaded from the Firefox(v80.1.3) app have no date information. This causes them to not show in the gallery app, not until I restart my phone or rename the image in my local storage/downloads folder.

It seems to only affect Firefox as I have tested it on chrome and the Samsung browser and they all work fine. I've even tested different images and sites, all to the same effect. This all appeared after Firefox recently did an update on the app, which is why I suspect its a Firefox issue.

Is there anyway to resolve this issue.

Ever since I upgraded my Motorola phone (running Android 5.1) from Firefox 68.12esr to Firefox 80, both my computers running the desktop browser have listed both Android Firefox instances in their synced tabs list.

  • They show the two tabs open on the old version at the time of the upgrade as well as the different tab open on the new Firefox version right now.
  • This is true of both my new Windows 10 machine running Firefox 80.0.1 (see screenshot) and my older macOS El Capitan computer running Firefox 78.2.0esr. Given how different these two systems are, I would imagine this is happening to a lot of Firefox users.
  • However, only one instance of my Motorola phone appears on the "Devices & apps" list.

Additionally, at some point when my phone upgraded to Firefox 80.1.2, it deleted all my tabs open at the time and reverted to those two tabs open at the time of the upgrade. I'm afraid that will happen again if this bug is not corrected. Is there any action on my end that must be taken?
