Hello

I thought it was a phone or keyboard issue in my phone and it might be.

But I have noticed that in Firefox for Android it auto-capitalises password fields. This is not a good feature. I continually enter passwords wrong as a result. It may happen in other apps but I've noticed it is not the case in all of them. And I have new devices that have the same problem. Has anyone an idea of how to turn it off please?

I have a Samsung Note10 Lite. I have a Swedish layout and English layout on the keyboard. Swiping on the spacebar switches language. I mainly use Swedish. Each time I start Firefox, the layout goes to English. I have set Firefox to Swedish, but the keyboard still switches to English all the time. Really annoying an causing typing errors. No other app on my phone does that.

Hi, since migrating to FF daylight, the tabs I specifically want to display under their Desktop version always reset to mobile version. Prior to updating FF, the option would remain specific to each tab and unchanged regardless of closing the app or just switching tab. Now it always resets by default to Desktop version. This is very annoying.

I'm using Firefox v79.0.5 on Android 10, and a browser behavior has apparently changed.

Used to be that if I opened a link that was active on a tab, that tab would become current.

Now, when I open a link, it always opens a new tab, so that I have 2 (or more) tabs displaying the same link.

Is there a control/setting I can use to restore the old behavior?

Thanks in advance.

I have a new phone and I'm experiencing a strange problem with Bing search engine on Firefox for Android. When I get my search results in Bing and I want to go to images or videos tab, my keyboard appears briefly, and nothing happens. I cannot open any search results, nothing. I have to refresh the page in order to click on any search results. Images and videos tab still not working and if I try to click it again everything will be frozen all over again.

I'm still learning how to use a touchscreen Android device (Moto G4 phone, just used as a device, at home, no SIM card). I don't yet know the names for various functions on the device so apologies for using the wrong terms. When I "Quit" Firefox Daylight v 84 7 Jan, on Android 12 (the latest version my Moto will take) (swipe down, press the 3 dots icon next to the tabs icon, select Quit, and it closes then deletes my browsing history as set in settings and appears to close down), the next time I press the square Moto icon (in the group of three - the back arrow, the circle for minimising, and the square to reveal which apps are running, up pops Firefox again, along with any other running apps. If I then press the x at the top rhs of the not maximised firefox window, it goes away and does not reappear again unless I start it with the home screen icon or click a browser link. It appears as if "Quit" doesn't close firefox but the x on the non-maximised window does? Can anyone explain this to me - please be gentle. Does Quit not mean quit? Should I really be closing Firefox by pressing the x icon and just ignoring the Quit command? Thanks for the help.
