After my firefox got upgraded to the newest version 81.0.2 in android tablet, the firefox is missing from 'Open with' list. Previous, when I try to open my downloaded or saved html file, the firefox app is one of the 'Open with' list. However, after the firefox is auto upgraded, the firefox app is gone from the open list. I tried to installed serveral file manager, all of them can not see firefox. Is there a bug or some setting I missed? I tried set firefox as default app, which does not help.

Bookmarks v81 - Just Access, Not Create Another Tab

Hi All,

I want to access ABC News, then change to viewing NBC News, etc. I just want to go from one bookmarked site to another with the least amount of hassle - just like how the desktop version works.

Q #1) With android v81 I tap the menu 3dots, select Bookmarks dropdown, tap on the Bookmark name/URL, it opens but as a new tab (3 steps). I must eventually close this tab >Select tabs icon, tap X to close that tab, then select the tab I just left. This is now SIX STEPS. I just want one open tab and change that URL to other bookmarked sites. I can't find a way to do this, or setting to change.

In the previous version I would I would tap the address bar, it defaulted to viewing Bookmarks tab. I selected a bookmark and the page would open - Done. This was TWO STEPS.

Q #2) BOOKMARK ORDER: "We listened to what features you want...blah blah". Is there a way to reorder bookmarks? Our bookmarks migrated into v81 are not alphabetical, by date saved, by URL, or even in their order from the previous version. This is just odd. Does anyone know the criteria on how v81 reordered bookmarks?

The previous version put new bookmarks at the very bottom of the list. People hated this and asked year after for the ability to rearrange their order. It's a tiny ask, 60 minutes worth of code. Many just don't want to push their highly personal bookmarks through a server (Create account -Sync with PC). To get their list order Android users would remove all bookmarks then add them by one in the order they want, doing this several times a year as the list changes. Mozilla has allowed the reorder of Bookmarks in the desktop version since it's inception. So there's has to be an ulterior motive why they won't allow this with mobile devices.

I'm using the latest version of Firefox on Android.

I downloaded a file which I eventually thought is of no use so I thought that it should be deleted. For that, I tried to delete it from the downloads section of the app itself.

But I noticed that no file(s) could be deleted from the application because the long press menu functionality is not working. Furthermore, there is no option to delete multiple downloads at once by selecting them from the list itself.

I have attached a screenshot under this post. I tired to delete the last file by long pressing it. But nothing happened. However if I enable the "External Download Manager", I am able to delete or love the files. But that's obviously increasing steps unnecessarily for a simple task. Please have a look over it and you will understand how there is no response when I tried to use a normal functionality.

Thank You. Kind Regards, VIVEK RAO ANAND

Hello again. As I suspected I would have the majority of my day consumed with this issue but I can see that Firefox has mad some type of adjustments and I thank you greatly. So I revoked my "special" from my Firefox account, signed all devices out except the one I'm using in the web session, reset my password and checked my devices. I was signed out on my two Samsung's but the android device was still signed in on the Device. The password however hadn't been updated yet so I removed sync and account from the Android. I signed in on the 2 Samsung's and synced. I then went to my firefox account and was signed into my account on the two Samsung's and 6 other web sessions that don't match my Samsung's. What do I do other than disconnect them? Can I somehow only authorize access for the devices I have? Due to the end resolver and VPN MY ip changes but the type of device is wrong. Also google said I had logged out of my account while handling this and I haven't even looked at Google. But when I did ck, it says I'm logged in with 4 devices. I only have 3 registered on google play and the login activity was all done in the last 15 mins and I haven't messed with my other 2 phones except to confirm logins for firefox. Somebody PLEASE tell me I'm missing something here?????

Hello!

I recently synced my firefox on my laptop to the app I downloaded for my android phone, and I followed all the steps to be sure Ecosia would stay as my search engine. I added it, I even deleted other options, but couldnt delete all the default ones, and still the last default remaining is what automatically comes up when I go to search something and I have to manually change it to Ecosia every time. I cant seem to find a way to make an added search engine act as my default in the app. Any help?

Also, considering Mozilla's honorable reputation, I think adding Ecosia to the list of default options would be a really cool idea for people to learn about another organization with similar pure motives!! Plant more trees<3

    • attached picture: under customization of search engines, clicking the three dots by Ecosia and clicking edit, my only options do not include making it a default browser**

When I open a few pages in new tabs and then switch apps or lock the screen or press the home button (ie. minimize Firefox), all the opened pages which I haven't seen would just vanish.

For example, I opened 10 articles from search results while doing some research, see two of those tabs and then make a quick switch to a messaging app. When I come back to Firefox, it'll show only the two tabs that I've seen and the other 8 would've vanished.)

This has been happening for multiple weeks now, but still hasn't been fixed even though it's a pretty major issue. Tried on multiple devices running Android 10 and got the same results.

I used to be able to open a new tab directly to Google. Since updating, the new tab states 'Server Not Found' even though the original tab is working fine, so the server is in fact not only found but working in Firefox: this statement shows that even Firefox can't work with Firefox settings! The tab addins don't work in Android. I locked updating on my PC because each update broke things. It would appear the same problems exist on the Android version too. Have Firefox not heard of beta testing? Can I lock Android updating too? If Firefox have broken it and can't repair it then it's time to jump ship. Chrome and Samsung Internet have no issue with the server.
