Please, please, please... bring back the pre v. 100 ability to not remember History, and to completely Close Apps when closing Firefox!!! (& to really not remember history, or tabs)

High data use and freezing makes that I have to go into Settings/Apps/Firefox/Storage/cache and delete all, because Firefox froze at each use, as it was suddenly remembering every site opened, despite my checking the boxes not to remember upon closing. Many sites are opened accidentally, as Firefox is the default browser. Not really closing any site, so I run out of data room? (Deleting app data fixes the unresponsive app.)

I really miss the pre 100 versions, when Firefox was dependable, fast, and lean in data use. And tried all the other new versions, but they all have the same site cookies hoarding problem. That is a very data heavy way to be fast, that leads to a lot of crashes where internet infrastructure is minimal.

Thank you for reading. CB

Just a white screen today.

  • Restarting device didn't help
  • Settings > Apps > Firefox Nightly > Force stop didn't help

Android has an option to clear a cache, but I don't know whether that is safe. Would prefer not to clear data if possible to avoid.

Hi. I downloaded the latest issue of Firefox (104.0.1) to my mobile phone and since then I have been unable to connect to the internet via 4/5G - but it is OK using wifi. This is highly annoying when I need to connect whilst out and about. Weirdly, the calculator on the phone and Samsung Notes have also disappeared and I am unable to download from the Play Store! All the usual things like rebooting, cleaning caches etc do not work. Is it possible to roll back to an earlier version? Any ideas would be useful, given the lack of phone contact available, thanks

Hello,

Quite à few month ago, after update, my new Firefox for Android does not allow me to access to the print option. I cannot find the page nor the tools options using my mobile. When using edge, chrome or other browser, I still do have this option and therefore able to print pdf copies of the resources I do want to archive. Is it possible to know why these printing options are unaccessible on Firefox using Android ?

Regards

So I have installed Firefox on my Galaxy S20 Plus running Android 12. All permissions are granted and everything is working except the camera. When testing it with https://webcammictest.com/ it ask for permission to use the camera and mic. I of cause allow the use and afterwards it says: The device is not found.

I have tested the mic alone and it is working. The test site is also working in Chrome, Edge, Vivaldi and Brave. So chromium browser do not have any issue with the camera or mic. I have also tried other tests sites with the same result.

I first noticed it when I had to call my doctor which sent a link to a site with camera feedback on. I was surprised and stressed about it wasn't working. Having a doctor waiting and a sick child, while installing Chrome to get it working, was not a fun experience.
