In regular Firefox on Android, if I save a page to my home screen, it uses the favicon of the website as the icon of the shortcut. But in Firefox Focus, I get a purple square with the first letter of the domain name instead. Is there any way to change the icon to something more appropriate?

Hello,

I use Firefox Focus (Firefox Klar) as my main browser on Android 11 since some time now. It clearly states that history is deleted when the browser is closed. However, it doesn't state anywhere how cookies and local storage. I have third party cookies blocked, but I can't find information about the handling of cookies and local storage upon closing Firefox Focus anywhere, not even in about:config. Are these also fully wiped?

I came to think about this question when I logged the background network actitvity of my installed apps, and Firefox Focus appeared to be sending informations outwards, without any website being opened. (Also not sure if cookies could be sending something in the background?) Is there regular background activity to be expected? What sorts?

Would be greatful for some clarification.

Cheers!

I am trying to remote debug Firefox Focus

On my PC windows desktop, I have the latest Firefox. 78.0.1 ( 64 bit ) On my Samsung Galaxy S8 I have Firefox Focus 8.5.0 (Build #341821556 78.0-20200625152958)

Firefox Preview is working, meaning I can have access to the html elements and console etc ... Firefox Focus is not working meaning in the about:debugging#/setup page only show the Firefox Preview connect option, no Firefox Focus connect. Even when Firefox Focus is opened and Firefox Preview is closed. Even when re-starting my cell or my desktop.

In Firefox Focus, under developer tools, Remote debugging via USB/Wi-Fi is activated.

Regards

Kindly allow add-on support in Firefox Focus. As Firefox nightly is not safe to use it's seems to be because in nightly version there is mentioned "enjoy at your own risk" so kindly provide add-ons to the firefox focus.

So I can use it (firefox focus) in the place of Firefox nightly (which is risky)

This is not in relation to either of the above two options, again I am confused. I have today decided to start using Firefox because I have heard that it is safer than google etc. However, I have never been so confused. This site has me worried sick about breached email adresses on websites that I cannot even remember using and are over a year ago. I am quite used to using the internet and have happily gained BSc (Hons) and many other quals and training. I have Google chrome at the moment and although it appears to be accessing and using all of my info - it is still many times easier to get around than Firefox. What I am attempting to fedback is, Firefox is simply the most difficult to understand as I browse through my security options. For example teo-step verification. How on earth does this work? Where is the simple text verification? What I get is some barcode message with lots of information that is far from easy to navigate. I was forced to come out of it as I could not understand how to use it. Why do you assume that we know as much as you about how this works? Firefox looks good, and I liked it until all the rest of the info came along. I have it synced to my phone too. But, I'm afraid I will need to wipe it all off because I am unable to understand quite how to use it. Email Firefox relay... does the alias email address pop up in my yahoo account? Where do I access this fabulous alias email address? Onve more, you do not take the time to fully explain how it works. I mentioned earlier about the breached email addresses. I have sent hundreds of thousands of emails since I supposedly was hacked. What am I to do? Why do you make this quite so mysterious and difficult. Please will you kindly make it simple and actually explain how one accesses the various aspects of Firefix please, as I am going to give up right now and return to my DuckDuckgo on Chrome.
