Hi,

I've asked in Hungarian about this, but I don't know if that is the same forum or not. So I tickle the forum in English.

Prev. I used older ff on my android. If I'm right ff 52 was that, later ff 68. No I have 103.2 from playstore. on old ff wifi-tickle caused error on browsing and router blocked as SYN-FLOOD if I remember well.

My question is, that is the current version has network.tickle-wifi.enabled or not and How can I disable it, because there is no about:config available?

Thanks,

Ty,

Yeah, that's why I would like to know if it is affected or not, and how to disable.

Also I made a try and all the pages comes and router haven't logged events like, just some (site specific):

Aug/19/2022 17:24:21 firewall,info Firewall:: Firewall: SYN flood SYN-Protect: in:bridge-local out:ether1-gateway, src-mac mydroid-mac, proto TCP (SYN), mydroid:52187->targetdomain:443, len 60

also I've revert to ff 52 https://user-media-prod-cdn.itsre-sumo.mozilla.net/uploads/images/2022-08-19-10-25-29-853cb7.png and there is the UDP flood: Aug/19/2022 19:20:21 firewall,info Firewall:: Firewall: Drop input: in:bridge-local out:(unknown 0), src-mac mymac, proto UDP, mydroid:34785->myrouter:4886, len 28 .... Aug/19/2022 19:20:21 firewall,info Firewall:: Firewall: Drop input: in:bridge-local out:(unknown 0), src-mac mymac, proto UDP, mydroid:34785->myrouter:4886, len 28

So the 103.2 looks works well, only some website requests too many times (e.g. too much ads, media, ...). Just the simple question is:

- is ff 103.2 has wifi-tickle enabled or not?

I've tried ff nightly. about:config said, that tickle-wifi is enabled. But No problems detected in router log.

Hi

I have shared your question with our open Firefox Android Community on Matrix - I do not know what the function you mention is.
