When visiting some Chinese commercial websites with firefox, I often encounter errors as shown in the screenshot. But other browers like Chrome have no such problem. I know this is because the websites didn't obey the protocol, but does anybody know how to resolve this problem?

Some example webpages are listed below: https://www.jianshu.com/p/1e09fbcfe21b https://m.bilibili.com/video/av9833732 Any link in this page: https://m.huxiu.com/moment/1721.html

I know the reason: more and more Chinese business websites are trying forcing users to install and visit their websites via their own apps rather than universal brower, so that they can raise their visiting flow, and then they can attract more investors.

When I click the Share symbol on Youtube videos Forefox no longer has a "copy link" function, instead it offers me a dozen different ways to share the video that aren't relevant.

If I want to paste a youtube link or imbed a video onto a forum, I have to click on share, text message it to myself, and then copy and paste the link from the message.

This is insane. Just let me copy the link like it used to.

Does anyone know how to fix this?

This is not really a question so much as a suggestion for a future release. If there's a better place for this, please let me know and I'll post it there.

I love the new Firefox Mobile with the address bar on the bottom, but it would be better if the address bar pushed the web content up instead of hiding it.

I have an example site that shows what I'm talking about: https://waxphilosophic.sdf.org/test/ (Couldn't get my mobile to cooperate for screenshots, so I have nothing but mobile emulation to offer for images.)

It's just a template I mocked up. My intention was to do something minimalist. In the template, there is a background image taking up the entire screen. The header is placed at the very bottom of the page, 10vh high. As the user scrolls up, the rest of the site content is revealed. The header is sticky and locks in place at the top.

It's a nice effect on desktop and mobile emulation. (See attachments.)

Unfortunately, with Firefox mobile's address bar being on the bottom and covering web content, the initial placement of the header is completely hidden from view, leaving the user to wonder what they're looking at. I am aware that the address bar can be configured to be at the top, but the average user is not going to do this.

I think it would be better to have the address bar push the web content out of its way rather than overlaying and hiding what's underneath. If that's possible, I'd love to see it as an enhancement.

If you go to https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/android/ where I would expect only supported add-ons to appear, it seems not a single recommended add-on is compatible.

If you then follow the hyperlinks at the top of the page, "To learn about add-ons compatible with Firefox for Android, click here", which eventually links to the "recommended Extensions program" at https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/search/?recommended=true&type=extension, none of those work either. Even though I have uBlock installed and its recommended, when I open the extension page I still get the prompt "Not available on Firefox for Android..." It seems like that extension was only installed because it was tied to my mozilla account.

I cannot find a list anywhere of apps that are supported on Firefox 80.

On the previous Firefox browser I had on my Android phone, I set it to close all my tabs when I closed the browser. I've just updated to the new Firefox on Android and I can't find the option to do this. I have to manually close all the tabs every time I close the browser. Surely they haven't given us less options and features in the new version?!

Pressing quit in the app closes the tabs but it doesn't also close the app down on my phone.

I recently lost my computer in a storm. I had all kind of password stored on my Firefox browser. I had to get a new phone and have never used the my previous phone for Firefox or anything on the internet. Now that I am in the situation that I am in I did get a phone that has internet access and I desperately need to access my passwords. I have logged into Firefox under my name and email address. it's supposed to be easy just push a button here push a button there but I don't have any button that I see on my Android phone that leads me to my account information. If someone would reach out and help a feller that don't have any sense when it comes to the computer, I would be greatly appreciative

Hi,

Since the lastest 79.0.5 Firefox for Android version was installed on my mobile phone (Samsung Galaxy Note 4), autofilling connexion fields (logins + passwords) on every websites I visit is not possible anymore.

All logins and passwords are still there, and Firefox still maintains the list up to date (if I enter a wrong password for example, FF proposes to update its list). But this list isn't usable anymore for autocompletion.

This page on Mozilla support is not up to date on this purpose, because the switch to activate autofill function has disapeared from this version :

https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/logins-sync-autofill-saving-firefox-preview#w_turn-on-autofill

Here is a screenshot of what I see (french version), and no switch there...

Is it a bug, and how to get it back ? Thank you for your help.

Valerie

I'm not sure what category this falls under. I feel stupid, this seems like it should be real obvious, but I don't see a way to get to the homepage. There's no little house icon, nothing in the pulldown menu, and I can't fimd info about it. Has it always been this way and I'm just now noticing it? I've been using the Collection feature, but can't go to those sites if I can't get to the homepage.

On the new Firefox for Android there are a much more limited set of search engines you can use. I am assuming that will get better as there is more development. I used to use Startpage, which I am struggling now to add in as a default, because it is not available as a standard search engine or a add-on.

The main question I have, however, is whether there are any plans to be able to choose what search engine you use each time you enter something in the address bar? One of the best features of the old android app, where I had Startpage as my default search engine, was that I could type something into the address bar and just press enter to use my default search engine or I could choose to revert to Google or Wikipedia straight from the address bar, depending on what search I needed.

I'm really upset! The new v79 has half the features and sync wasn't running: always shows "last sync on 1970" and didn't let me select what to sync. I cleared the cache, not solved... I cleared all my data, reconfigured, but still no sync! So I removed the app and manually installed the old one. Guess what? It still doesn't sync!!! Now I'm left with the Firefox I know and love but I can't use it because I have NO credentials and no bookmarks... I would like to kick someone...
