I installed Firefox APK on MI Box S 4K (offical github latest non-beta release on firefox support site). Everything is OK except it is installed as a system app, meaning that I can't add it to my favorites on the Mi Box welcome screen. So I have to go to parameters/app each time and run it :-( and it is very bad... I have installed other APKs (file system, player and so on) and none was installed as a system app they all was ready for favorites. Did I something wrong ? Wahat can I do to get it in my favorites ? Thank for your help, it is a bore to install it OK and be stuck like this !

On the previous Firefox browser I had on my Android phone, I set it to close all my tabs when I closed the browser. I've just updated to the new Firefox on Android and I can't find the option to do this. I have to manually close all the tabs every time I close the browser. Surely they haven't given us less options and features in the new version?!

Pressing quit in the app closes the tabs but it doesn't also close the app down on my phone.

I'm getting Secure Connection Failed error on every single website I try to visit. Including sites such as microsoft.com, duckduckgo.com, google.com, etc. (Strangely, mozilla.org works fine.) Try Again never works, and Advanced - Accept risk works sometimes, but not always and if I close Firefox app and re-open it's back to the error page. I can't believe this is a common problem, so there must be something about my phone that's causing this. Android 11. Happens whether or not WiFi is enabled. What could it be?

Cannot access about:config on Firefox android. This seems to be an intentional action as there is an archived thread where other users had the same problem and Firefox did crikets and did not resolve the issue.

Without the ability to access about:config it is almost impossible to prevent browser hacks and spying through microphone and camera using the Firefox's always on webrtc due to this.

For anyone reading this search for "webrtc leaks" . Then read about the dangers of having webrtc on by default as Firefox does with impunity.

This needs to stop and it is a huge security hole.

Firefox developers needs to enable about:config so that users can switch off shouting vulnerabilities like this.

There has been threads before like this, but developers do nothing about this issue which is very very curious.

Should we believe they want to leave webrtc on permanently, knowing that it can be used maliciously as reported?

Most mobile sites are of a lower quality than their desktop counterparts. Less features and constant requests to download unnecessary apps are annoying and waste screen space. How do I force the Firefox app to only open desktop sites?

Because when I do the toggle bar it only works for one tab and when I open links to new tabs, it switches them back to the mobile version. Which for some sites that prevents me from being able to read or access things because the mobile version switches to a page that is just a prompt to download the app and clicking the desktop toggle doesn't bring me back to the page I wanted.

I saw there used to be an addon that would have been useful. It's dead now. Is there any useful replacement add on? Any convenient workarounds?

Websites are fine, but if I open up the address/search bar firefox instantly begins to lag and there is a serious (5 seconds or so) delay between typing and the text appearing.

I have tried disabling search features (search from history, search bookmarks), I have tried disabling add-ons, and I have tried clearing the app cache

Weirdly enough, this problem persists on Firefox Nightly, which I had never downloaded before just now.

Please help.

The latest Android+Firefox update has Firefox opening in Immersive Mode (full screen, hiding Navigation bar and Status/notification bar). I am frequently navigating between apps, so this requires me to do a lot of extra gestures in my daily interactions with Firefox. Also, I miss being able to quickly check the time and my battery life in the status bar. I know some people like immersive mode, but there are many use cases where forced full screen is not desirable, so there should be a setting to toggle this off.

Since an update a few weeks ago, every time I enter an address or tap one of my most visited sites, instead of continuing on from the previous site, it opens a new tab.

I've scoured the settings but can't find anything. Surely this is a bug? I end up with 10 tabs within minutes. Can't understand what the purpose of this change is

Hi,

With the up-to-date version of Firefox Androind 84.1, Youtube videos(m.youtube.com) won't play in the background (on a tab that isn't on the foreground or in another app) any more. Downgrading to an older Firefox version does allow background playing. Is disabling updates the only option to maintain this function?
