For some reason most addons stopped being available on android, I'm not sure if this happended because of the build I'm using or is it like that for everyone Is there any way to fix this?

I read something about Firefox Nightly having an option to install all addons, but that doesn't work for me either

I have created some firefox collections but have difficulty getting to the collections screen. On a collections help page it says "In the Collections section on the Home screen" but my android phone does not show a collections section, just icons. What is the problem? I also cannot figure out how to find the version of firefox that is installed, if that may be the issue.

In previous version of Firefox (the one with regular tabbed browsing for normal and private browsing) if use https://api.whatsapp.com/send?phone=0919848012345, I used to get a button continue chat and clicking on it used to take me to WhatsApp directly.

Attaching pics : 1. Firefox showing message that WhatsApp isn't installed 2.selecting URL doesn't show WhatsApp option 5. On Chrome, Clicking on chat button directs me to WhatsApp. 3,4. On different mobile with same version of Firefox, Selecting URL shows option to open and clicking on it gives option of whatsapp

Firefox beta - can I sync 'Top sites', 'Collections', 'Open tabs' from my old dead phone to my new phone?

Hi. I use Firefox on multiple devices/platforms, and I've not had problems with sync before, but I'm not sure what I wanted is possible.

Specifically on my old Android phone I used Firefox beta. But this phone died a few days ago. I got a new Android phone and installed Firefox beta, signed into my account and did sync.

Bookmarks and history seem to have synced. But I was wanting - top sites - open tabs - collections to be synced from my old phone.

Are these not included in the synch process? Or is the fact my old phone died the problem?

Thanks in advance.

After many failed attempts with add-ons I come to this forum to ask this basic question. How can I sort bookmarks either alphabetically or manually? I don't understand how such a basic function can be missing from any browser????

Also there seems to be some problem in the Firefox "system" where it thinks I'm looking for desktop applications despite the fact that all of my queries are initiated through the Android browser.

I can't download anything through the browser. Images, PDF's, even the extensions recommended by Firefox. Whenever I try to download something I get an indication that Firefox is trying to download it. Then it always fails and tells me to try again. And then it fails again.

I downloaded chrome to be able to download things. That works. But running two separate browsers to get the basic features of one working browser is an annoying fix.

Restoring mobile/Android tabs after accidentally "Close All Tabs"

Hi,

Unfortunately I lost over 130 tabs today after accidentally hitting "close all tabs" while trying to open up a private session. The lack of failsafe asking if I'm sure or offering to undo this means weeks of research down the drain.

Some of the tabs have been open for weeks, and others just for days... which means finding the older tabs through my history is almost an impossibility.

I have Mozilla Synch activated and was hoping there might be a way to sync tabs onto my desktop browser from a few hours ago, or even from a day ago. Is this possible? Do any other methods exist to restore these tabs? I've tried scouring forums for answers and I'm getting desperate.

Thank you

Yesterday I tried downloading a document but it failed to do so. Since then, the 'Download failed' message keeps popping up as a warning in Android. I can't acknowledge it by clicking on the message, but I can swipe it away until it comes back within about 2-30 minutes. The message seems to appear only when Firefox is not running in the foreground. There are no tabs open and this download is not available in the Downloads list. I can't clear the downloads list by the way, which is weird.

I already forced a shutdown of the app and cleared the cache. I haven't tried to clear all data as I don't want to set up the app all over again. I'm sure that works but that's not the solution for this.

Are there any ways to make the default home screen dark in Android version of Firefox 68.10.1?

I've set my default home screen as about:home which I assume is default by default. I was wishing for a darker colorscheme/custom colorscheme! Because during day time, I tend to the use light a.k.a. the default colorscheme, however, at night, the light colorscheme literally puts strain in my eyes, and Im pretty sure any nightowls could hands down agree with that. Now, I've tried an extension called Dark background white text extension and it puts a darker color on my home screen, which is amazing, however during a search, the background unexpectedly changes to bright color. Also, the menus and the settings tab could also use a darker coloescheme! I've tried firefox nightly on my android, and liked it because of its darker colorscheme, but the basic Firefox that I'm using now, feels more comfortable (: If there's any way to implement dark mode on the app that'd be dope! Aside from that, keep up the good work!

I hate, yes hate the latest Firefox upgrade! In its infinite wisdom Mozilla has taken a perfectly fine browser and fucked it up! I can't find things. I can't get to screens I was used to. I can't figure out how to bookmark a page! And the icons are so small in my list of top sites that the list is now useless! (And I suspect these changes were made to make the browser better for cell phones, and we tablet users are now shit out of luck!

You people and your stupid fucking updates that are supposed to make my 'user experience' better. Well, you've failed miserably!

So, how can I uninstall this update and reinstall the version that was working for me? Or, is there some sort of 'classic mode' option to allow the browser to look and feel and function as it used to? Or will I - as I suspect - now have to look for another browser to use?
