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?

Hello I am German and not used to write in english. I use Firefox on my Xperia device. Within the last Update I got the new function to collect the tabs. I created several collections and named them. After I put in the tabs and deleted them in the list. So they were only in the collections. Today I wanted to use one Tab out of the collection. But the whole collection Was not any more there, same with 2 Others! Where are these collections and the tabs now? I did not delete them and I need them.

Where are they and how can I use them again?

Kind regards

Mischa

Hi, I wish to use firefox to read my html files stored on the sd card.

  1. If I try to open it with a file browser such MIUI file browser, X-plore or Total Commander, Firefox doesn't shows up in the options (I have Chrome, MIUI browser and others too).
  2. If I try to navigate to it with file:///...myfile.html in the address bar (actually copy-pasting the url from one of the file browsers, no chanche to remember it otherways) it launches a serach on duckduckgo instead of opening the file itself.

I have a Xiaomi Redmi Note 4 with MIUI 11.0.2, firefox86.1.1, and the archive permission already set for firefox. My wish is to enable the first option, of course, the second would be just a work around. Thank you

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.

Firefox only displays a blank web page

Hello,

my Firefox on Android running on Xiaomi Redmi Note 3 suddenly stopped working after five years. It does not display the content of the web page even though it loads it completely. I can see only blank page. I concluded that the website is fully loaded because on a “blank” page I can tap on any link that is then loaded, but the website still ends up being completely blank.

I tried the following: - clean firefox cahche - reinstall firefox - reboot the phone several times - install other versions of Firefox (nightly, firefox for Android Beta, Quantum)

Nothing helped.

Chrome browser is running normally.

I haven't changed anything from the settings on my mobile phone, nor have I added any new apps. I've had a problem for the last week since, I guess, since the last update was released.

I'm in a bad situation because Firefox is my favorite browser that I use on five devices connected to the cloud.

P.S.

By searching this forum I found that it was some kind of bug in Firefox, but that was more than two years ago and the problem was marked as fixed.

Please help and advice.

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!

Hi,

I'm working on a website and cannot get FF mobile to clear cache. It just keeps loading old CSS, so I cannot see the effect of my changes. "Delete browsing data" doesn't seem to do anything. On Chrome mobile it works just fine. What's wrong with what I'm trying to to, or with FF mobile? Restarting actually helps, but I don't want to do that for every little change of my files.

Ideally there'd be a setting to switch off all cache completely. I'm dreaming ...

Thanks!

Hello, I have been using Firefox for so long, and it's one of my favorite web browser on Windows as well as on Android. Firefox update for Android has become frustrating for many people including me, as most of the features aren't available in this new FF. One of them is about:config system settings, where i use to change some usefull features by going through that option. Sadly, this isn't available in the new update as of now. So, I would like to request you that please add this option as soon as possible in the coming updates. Another request would be, to be able to change the dns within the browser for using secure dns like DoH. As this option is available in desktop browser, i will be happy to get this option even on Android as well. Thank you.....

When trying to download anything the download apparently begins, since a notification appears on the notification panel, but it just does not properly start. It keeps trying but no progress is shown. After a while a failure message replaces the progress notification.

This isn't a network problem, since I've tried it with different connections. There used to be no problem before.

Anybody else experiencing a similar issue?

In the Nov 20th and Nov 21st Nightly builds, when I enter a URL in the address bar (either by fully typing it and tapping Enter, or by partially typing it and tapping on one of the autocomplete suggestions), the onscreen keyboard remains in place.

The behaviour in previous builds (and in my view the desired behaviour) was that the onscreen keyboard disappeared in order not to take up screen space that the web page could use.
