Hi, this issue has been present for a long time for me, and with many versions of Firefox Nightly for Android.

I'm always using the latest nightly for browsing Youtube only, with a set of specific settings and addons (since we can't use profiles on Android yet)

My problem is I've configured the Homepage to never show anything but a few URLs I chose to pin, you can see my settings and my homepage in the screenshots attached.

Despite the "Recently visited" setting being disabled, sometimes, but not everytime, the last pages I visited are added to the Homepage, after the pinned sites. I have no idea what triggers it or not, if I'm doing something wrong or if it's a bug.

Thanks for your help !

There are three problems, all related, that are frustrating me with Firefox on Android. I have a Samsung Galaxy 24+. I am trying to get Firefox to use a local HTML file that are my bookmarks, but I am stymied at every turn:

1) when I click on the local, Galaxy, HTML file, I get the standard "Open with" pop up, but they only list: Chrome, HTML View, Android's Internet browser, and Samsung Print Services. Why doesn't Firefox show up there? This is important to me. Is Firefox failing to register its browser properly in Galaxy products?

2) The next thing I try to do is to sync bookmarks so that I can use my hundreds of bookmarks (rather than adding them into Firefox one at a time). So, I click on the famous three vertical dots and there is no "Sync" function in that menu, see attached. So I cannot import my bookmarks from my PC's bookmarks.

3) Thirdly, I try to type into the URL field what Chrome uses to access local files, which is for example: "content://media/external/file/1000005061" but Firefox android does not recognize that. When I change it to "file://media/external/file/1000005061" that does not work either.

Can you fix the three issues above? Thanks. Rick. see attached.

Hello there! I have an issue with the context menu, which appears on selecting a word on any web site (you can see it on the screenshot attached one after another as it appears)

The context menu is too long, and most frequent options like copy text are in the end (I should switch it many times to copy anything, it appears only on the third tap, and some weird functions like search in Edge appears before the really useful ones). How could it be fixed?

Hello all,

I had been using firefox as the standard browser for years, but since the DNS-over-HTTPS feature I have had trouble with protecting my family on the web via DNS filtering. Currently the only solution that has worked is to use a different browser (the Spin browser, for whoever is interested). I have Firefox blocked using the Android family link feature (and they can't install new apps without permission). Personally, I would love to move everyone back to Firefox, but I can't find a way to do it safely. Is there a way to effectively disable DNS-over-HTTPS such that it can't be changed (kids are pretty quick at figuring out that they can just go to the settings and figuring out that they can turn the feautre back on). A parental control feature would be ideal, so I can just set the DNS-over-HTTPS to use the family DNS filter in a way they can't turn it off. Does anyone have an helpful solution, or is Firefox dead for family protection?

Respectfully, Andrew

I gotta ask... why isn't there a setting to remove private browsing on firefox? Now yeah sure it's free security but we got add ons for that. I've always felt like private browsing and incognito stuff is just a way to go to pornhub feeling secured from criticism. That's why I quit Chrome (+ being able to watch YouTube with ads for free) so I gotta ask again... why isn't there a setting to remove private browsing on firefox?

this is relevant to privacy & security, as well as websites

browser fingerprinting is a serious threat to privacy & security.

fenix 123.0 & 1240a1 eventually achieved "non-unique browser fingerprint" in std pbmode as tested via covefyourtracks.eff.org

however, since 124.0 & 125.0a1, browser fingerprinting protection has slid all the way down to "partial." orbot-hostile Brave Andro always achieves a fully "random browser fingerprint." all i want/expect from fenix is a robust & reliable "non-unique browser fingerprint."

my fenix UI P&S is always set to Strict & GPC enabled. i haven't changed anything. no 3rd party cookies. caches cleared, etc, & always uses expert mode orbot proxy.

why this very unwelcomed fenix backslide?

Home screen might be considered a specialized bookmark I suppose but the categories don't directly apply above. Browsers for decades have allowed a custom Url to be entered or "use current page" as home screen. I can find no option under firefox settings for Android enter it. What's the trick?

I picked last tab but that isn't the same as a fixed URL such as my bank website or Facebook page I would always want to see first.

I'm everyone working on Firefox is absolutely sick and tired of hearing from us Android users bellyaching, usually about incredibly ubiquitous, very basic features, which somehow only affect our OS, so let me apologize before I begin, and yes I do know it's a bug, and read a rumor Firefox 57 may fix it, to keep your reply as minimal as necessary.

I recently migrated back to you, and while it hasn't been any complex issues, I spent an figuring out I couldn't simply open my browser to a specific URL, though yes I did apply the quasi-work around option of making it a permanent page/icon, which I can click, though this took another investigation in itself, because for some reason Google News(web based url) doesn't doesn't even list as a website in the hamburger menu, which changes it to an app. Yeah, it is indeed an app, but I'm using the URL so this just seems like it was built to confuse, which thankfully a post on Reddit made crystal clear, along with plenty of company of other confused people.

Now my next issue I now know I can't even fix, but simply would appreciate an idea of when/if the bug will be stomped. I, of course, have a couple of fillable pdf files I need to fill in and email, so during my breaks yesterday I finally found(tons of answers out there obviously between old builds/OS) out this was a bug, and Android users simply cannot use web based pdf editors till it's repaired (I'm an old school programmer, detest downloading any app I'm not power using, especially if there's a web based version, even Google News that I read constantly, I stick w/website, because as you know we already have more apps than our hardware's performance can handle. Found a github post, stating this might be fixed in Version 57? I looked at the About Firefox, and saw a 119 number, but it wasn't clear if that was build, or what number there was. I just downloaded Firefox, so do you have any idea when/if any of these very basic features are going to be fixed?

From my reading, it sounds as if this new Android build is still very much in it's infancy, and understand it takes time and updates to get things high and tight, and I wouldn't even be bothering you had I found anything here or elsewhere that wasn't utterly vague. So perhaps first, when is the next build due, and second, is there any specific info as to what we can expect to see fixed and third will there be a homepage button, that we can put a specific url in along with regaining the ability to view/edit pdf files that are web based? I, obviously am just going to have to use my old ad ridden browser to accomplish this, but I'd sure like to stay default with your browser after spending all this time making it just that, and forbthe fact that otherwise, Firefox Android has accomplished everything else I was hoping to nip in the butt,along with finally getting back my ability to highly customize my browser. Sorry again if there's an answer here to all of this, I really did make an effort to find something too, and thank you for your time.

I have Fx 123 for Android. I expected to see "Manage Bookmarks" at the bottom of the bookmarks menu like what is found in one of the article's screenshots. However, "Manage Bookmarks" doesn't appear.

in any other open tab, auto-hide addressbar/toolbar properly goes into hiding as soon as i begin scrolling, portrait or landscape.

ONLY IN AN ABOUT:CONFIG TAB, auto-hide addressbar/toolbar requires that i 1) scroll all the way to end of page and then 2) vigorously & multiply scroll down, through the stuck bar. any upward scroll & i have to start from scratch. portrait & landscape.

this Android alpha cancer has metastacized to Android beta. danged annoying.

please fix this bug & don't regress it back in.
