Can't access any website with firefox nightly after socks configuration

more options

I tried setting socks 5 configuration with my firefox nightly browser on my Samsung j5 prime android phone which was successful based on the error message my browser displayed. After that I couldn't use the configurations for browsing the internet. I don't have any ads on installed like ads guard or any other installations and settings since I recently started using firefox browser.

Hi

I am guessing that you have made changes to about:config?

With the move to GeckView as the underlying engine in Firefox for Android, some settings are baked in when the app is built and as a result the about:config settings may not have the desired effect.
