This thread will probably get archived and locked, but I'll restart another one anyway. Firefox seems to be degenerating in terms of UX an stability, and especially if people are running custom OSs like lineage OS, it's unlikely that the latest android version will actually install at all. As a result, a lot of people are installing older versions of firefox, especially versions which allow access to "about:config" so firefox can be modified to be usable.

When googing for this, there are a lot of non-mozilla websites offering downloads, filled with God knows what malware added. It would be better if there was a permanent archive of all the previous versions, including the nightlys, so that people could at least access the older, working, versions from a trusted source. You might think this would be a bad security choice, but the current situation is worse.

Hello there :)

I recently switched from Chrome to Firefox on my Android device and I still have some usability issues. Every time I open a new bookmark, FF opens a new tab which results in 6-7 tabs after a short time as I often switch between different websites (e.g. to browse news on different websites). Is there a possibility to open a website from my bookmarks in the same tab? I didn't find anything in the settings...

Thanks very much

I constantly get these annoying popping up messages asking to send some crash log. I don't care for that and I don't need them popping on top of my screen. Is there a way to disable them?

How did you even manage to get them displayed on top of a launcher?

I WANT TO SYNC MY FIREFOX TO MY NIGHTLY. Android 10 SAME device. WHY DOES THIS NOT WORK? I have spent ALL NIGHT screwing around with something that SHOULD work. ALL I WANT IS THE BOOKMARKS to add to nightly. I have USED FIREFOX FROM THE BEGINNING of Firefox. This is OUTRAGEOUS. No the "customer help" does NOT have the ANSWER. Either you give me a solution, or I am unbelievably changing all my browsers, all my password saving from your locker application. HELP ME sync my BOOKMARKS from Firefox to NIGHTLY! SAME DEVICE. OTHERWISE make it so you can WRITE the damned FILE. WHY did you TAKE THAT AWAY?

Hello, I'm using Firefox 90.1.2 on android. Whenever I open a site and hit the back button and open another site it just opens a new tab and loads the previous page on another tab for no reason, if I open several pages after getting back from previous page the browser just opens several tabs and open all the other sites I visited previously. This is really annoying, please fix this issue. Thank you.
