I want to see all web pages in desktop view, without having to change the setting for each page I go to. This is an option in other popular browsers. Why not this one?

And please don't tell me why mobile view is better or why I don't really need the feature I'm asking for. I know what I want. And I know exactly why I want it. And I know I'm not the only one who wants it. in July 2021 someone asked for the same thing and Paul replied, "This is something that we are currently working on and hope to include in a future update very soon (it is currently in our Nightly version while it is being tested)." A year and a half later, it's still not available, including (as far as I can see) in the Nightly version. Yet in both instances of this feature being requested, the topic is marked "Solved" and archived. I guess the "solution" is to ignore what users want and force us to use the product in the way you think we should. Very Apple/Google of you!

Between this, no ability to export bookmarks from mobile, and very limited extension support, I'm finding myself ready to give a very bad rating in the play store and switch to another browser.

Since the last update the Android status bar (top bar with the notifications, time, WiFi, battery info, etc) disappears when start browsing in the light mode. When launching the Firefox app everything is OK but as soon I start browsing the icons on the bar just turn white. ( Please see the images below) Before the last update it worked well. Any suggestions to solve this issue?

Yes I'm aware there's an option to hide toolbar when scrolling, however on website like Google maps or FlightRadar, firefox doesn't recognize scrolling and toolbar stay visible, which take up a lot of screen real estate when in landscape mode. Please add option to show webpage in full screen or hide toolbar by default.

I saw similar question has been asked but it was a year ago and archived with no answer.

I am using the Homepage on Firefox Android to store some very important bookmarks/shortcuts. I only have three.

But whenever I start surfing, the shortcuts get cluttered with all pages I recently visited. I do not want this, also for privacy issues.

In the Homepage screen, I only have shortcuts enabled, e.g. recently visited is 'off'. These would be displayed in a separate section anyhow.

Apparently there used to be a setting under Customize - Home "Show most visited sites", as described here: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/customize-firefox-home-screen?redirectslug=use-awesome-screen-search-web-bookmarks-and-more#mobile::m108

But Firefox 1.05 does not have that setting and an about:config also seems not available.

Is there anyway to turn this off?

The android version of firefox should follow the "system" for its auto dark mode instead of following the "battery saver". Just like chrome and other chromium browsers do.

The major advantage this gives is that it allows even older android version users to experience auto dark mode, since there are ways for them to initiate system wide dark mode through 3rd party apps (like this one for example: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=systems.maju.darkmode&hl=en&gl=US) But since Firefox follows battery saver, this never works on android version lower than 10.

Therefore, I'd like to request the developers to implement the uato dark mode in firefox android to follow the system instead of the battery saver status.
