Installation fails for Yomichan add-on on Nightly for Android

I'm trying to get Yomichan by FooSoft to install on Nightly for Android (v117.0a1) to no success. Here's what I've tried:

  1. 1. Add Yomichan to a custom add-on collection.
  2. 2. Go to the add-on manager and tap on install.
  3. 3. A little toast that says "Failed to install Yomichan" comes up instantly (see screenshot attached). Nothing is even downloaded.

Notes and information:

  • a. The development of Yomichan has ceased and the version on AMO is behind by 3 years (June 4, 2020).
  • b. The latest version of Yomichan (October 23, 2022) is only available as an XPI file on the add-on developer's GitHub page. Unfortunately, it is not possible to install add-ons from XPI files on Nightly for Android, so I have no idea if this version would work on Nightly for Android.
  • c. Another user (Occupied Octopus) uploaded a rebranded version of Yomichan's latest release in 'note b' called "KiYomi" to AMO. Unfortunately, installation fails on Nightly for Android too, with the same results as in the screenshot after attempting to install it.
  • d. Installation of other add-ons (e.g. uBlock Origin, SingleFile) succeeds.

Is there a way to force "dark mode" for websites on mobile WITHOUT using an extension like Dark Reader?

I am comparing this to coming from Brave, where I am using their "experimental" Night Mode settings (which works great). For the desktop browser, I've gone to Manage Colors and swapped text/background white/black to make most websites appear as if they have a dark mode, but that option doesn't seem to exist on mobile.

I've attached 4 images that show the differences across the two browsers on mobile. Even Google's own Dark Theme doesn't seem accessible through whatever method FireFox uses, so I can't even use that dark theme without an extension at the moment.

If this is not currently possible, I'm hoping it's planned for future implementation. I can't suggest it either since the feature suggestion page appears to be down at the moment (being reworked?).

I’ve been trying to install an ad blocker for FF on my iPad and I’m stuck in an endless loop. I navigate to the add on store and it says I have to install FF, even though it’s installed and set as default. The store has the “open” button, not install or download. I have a 5th gen iPad running 16.6. FF is at ver 117.0.

I ran across a bunch of posts about addons not working but they were from about 4 yrs ago. Here are some screenshots of what happens. Are addons prohibited on an iPad?

Suggestions for Firefox for Android

Since the built-in password manager is not good enough in terms of security and functionality, (and I don't think it will be good enough for the foreseeable future), it would actually be a good idea to build an app instead of the built-in one, or to choose a third party app as a partner as an official recommendation, and so forth.

I find the browser's ad-blocking features to be very unorganized, repetitive, and not easy to use. I wish you could build a comprehensive enough and personalized built-in pan-ad blocker.

And please allow the beta version's custom "add-ons collection" to be added to the official version

Anyway, there are many problems and many solutions, I hope Firefox will be better and better.

Thanks.

Hello!

Look, i just cannot find a way to install my own small addon for firefox android that i made on my own device. I dont need it to be publicly available. I dont need noone to install it. I just want to install it on my own phone, and that's it, nothing more! That's just a small, few-lines-of-code addon which blocks annoying ads on a certain site me and my wife are using. All i want to install it on our phones. I dont care if it will be firefox nightly release for devs, or anything. If there's any way to install it, like using web-ext, adb, or maybe anything other than that - please let me know. I just spent 50x time more trying to install it on my own phone than actually writing it. Please, i really hope you can help. Thank you in advance!

Hi, google.co.uk search page appears differently in Firefox when compared to other browsers. Specifically there is a menu option missing. For me this is a significant inconvenience so I'm hopeful you can tell me what I'm doing wrong. I have attached two images to highlight what I'm asking about, I've circled in red the menu items that don't display (for me) in Firefox.

Many thanks... Mark

The Firefox for Android add-ons section (yes, I made sure I was in the 'for Android' add-ons web address, as opposed to the 'desktop add-ons' web address) is saying "You'll need Firefox to use this extension" and not allowing me to install add-ons as the page employs a download firefox link that leads to an "Open" button in the Google Play Store, as I already have Firefox installed. I have tried many different add-ons to test if the issue is isolated to a single add-on and to test if it is an add-on compatibility issue, and it seems to be a consistant issue with all add-ons. Yes my underlying operating system (Android), and the Firefox for Android app are both up-to-date with the latest versions. I have located the Firefox support page labeled "Unable to install add-ons (extensions or themes)" and was able to work through the the list of potential issues and their solutions, to determine that every item on the list was either inapplicable or not the problem/solution. What am I missing?
