Hi,

Now when i click the address bar at the top I'm met with a Blank Screen whereas before the update I had my Top Sites "pinned" for quick & easy access. I now have to faff around going into the bookmarks which is pointless when this feature was working perfectly well, why remove it?

Also when i start Firefox fresh i see small icons for the top sites but they're so small the URL/Name doesn't show up so i have no idea which icons lead to which sites. These need to be bigger like post update and put back line they were before.

If it ain't broke don't fix it. This update is a massive fail, please revert ASAP.

Please tell me how to go back to Firefox "regular" or Ff Beta from Ff Nightly for Android.

I can't stand not being able to bookmark easily and *especially* miss adding bookmarks to my home page(s) and the endless update is interruptive. My phone is very slow as it is. 

Thanks. I am afraid to migrate Firefox "backwards" from Nightly to beta or just ordinary. I lost all my bookmarks a year ago by uninstalling Instagram which somehow wiped out Firefox as well.

Many thanks.

Greetings everyone,

Sorry to be creating a thread about this, but it's a serious question I need help with.

I was just about to install Firefox for my old Android phone. However, before installing Firefox it warns me that it requires access to a bunch of my personal data... :(

Why is this the case?

I currently use Google Chrome on this Android phone.

I'd really appreciate any advice.

The last update of Firefox Android completely broke base functionalities such as tabs, and you now have to go into sliding sub-menues just to open up new tabs, or even switch between tabs.

For the longest time, I've been trying to stave off using Chrome, even as more and more pages seem to flat-out not work, but with this latest update, I really can't excuse using Firefox anymore, as even basic usage now becomes a constant back-and-forth, trying to fight against the application itself.

Is there any way to resolve this, or am I forced to migrate?

Or, if this is not possible and Firefox Android 79 is indeed unusable, how do I upgrade to 68 (which I believe was the previous version) without losing my pre-existing tabs (of which I have oh-so-many).

When I search Google from the address / search bar in Firefox Android, the progress bar goes to about 30% and stops for a long time before loading the page.

Worse, every page I click in the search results behaves the same way.

Same behavior just opening www.google.com.

Other sites load fine, just anything that starts with a Google URL is severely hobbled.

Same on mobile and Wi-Fi. Desktop PC on same Wi-Fi network is not affected.

I downloaded some Mozilla apps last week, apps that control mainly privacy plus Dark Screen. The next day I attempted to log in to my bank account and I couldn't. I got a message saying that Java Script was needed. This is very confusing because I did not knowingly disable Java script. I tried my other bank and got same message. I tried to log in using my Duck Duck Go browser and everything worked as it should. So how did this happen? I'm trying to figure out your instructions on how to enable Java script again, but can't find the menu for my Firefox browser. Sorry but I'm not tech savvy!

I keep finding people answering this question with click here click there.

Clear browser on exit suppose to automatically clear history, this is a serious problem.

Why is this being ignored, this browser is no longer safe to use, clean install on Android phone

Yes, Android, not any other system that people keep telling me to check, and they talk as if the windows version is the same.

Has the team stopped Firefox for Android?

I give up now, need to use a safe chrome browser now
