When I'm browsing articles or news stories or what-have-you on the web, I would like to be able to read the information I came from without all the distracting stuff on the sides and top (or worse, the kind of pop-ups that can't be blocked, because they are JS-generated in the same page). Article mode is great for this, but can I have it automatically enable to help prevent me from distracting myself?

I would like to use the amazon.com (and wikipedia.com) search engine and keyword. But since I have installed a non-English version of Firefox (or maybe because the default language of my OS is non-English), I get defaulted to amazon for a different country (and the Wikipedia for that language).

How do I get the US / international version as default?

Hi,

I see instructions for rearranging top site pins in s custom order. But this doesn't appear to work on Android.

  • Long press never activates a drag & drop UI.
  • The context menu has no rearrange option.
  • The new tab UI has no other settings widget.
  • The Android Firefox settings UI has no such top site rearrange option.
  • about:config displays a blank page.

Please, I would like to reorder my pins. Without having to delete them and recreate from scratch.

Fenix - Firefox Android - Modifying App's Default Search Suggestions

I'm modifying the Firefox Android App (Fenix). I'm trying to change the search suggestions feature from Google to another search engine in the source code (not through the app once it is installed).

To do this, there are 2 files need to be modified.

The first file I change is: fenix/app/build/intermediates/merged_assets/debug/out/search/list.json

The second file that I add to the searchplugins folder is as follows, after I've deleted all the other ones: app/build/intermediates/merged_assets/debug/out/searchplugins/test.xml

After I make these changes and run the app in the emulator to test it out, the changes that I make are reversed/undone/overwritten, and the notice pops up saying "Files under the "build" folder are generated and should not be edited". The search folder and searchplugins folder go back to the way they were before I made the changes.

How are these files generated in the search and serachplugins folder? What should I do to modify them so that I can change the default search engine in the source code (not through the "add a search engine" option within the app)? When I make this same modification in the Firefox iOS app, I don't have this problem.

The sidebar that is brought up by clicking on the sidebar button normally shows whatever you choose on its dropdown menu (Bookmarks, History, or synced tabs). And it used to be, if you choose Bookmarks on that menu, it shows bookmarks the next time you open it. But since a few weeks, it is always showing History when clicked, even though I only ever use it for Bookmarks. Is there any way to stop this behaviour?
