I can’t find the Auto-fill settings in FF on iOS. I found instructions here for where they should be and they are not there. Was this feature taken away recently. It’s VERY tedious not having this feature. Am I doing something wrong?

I just downloaded firefox nightly for the sole purpose of being able to use the about:config editor. My question is, how can I disable the blue dots in both the screenshots attached? I find it annoying to be bothered when any application notify me that an update has been installed. Where in about:config should I search to disable this behavior?

Hi there

On some sites I use, their aps are next to useless as are their mobile sites. I want to be able to access the REAL websites but when I change the URL (e.g. change m.twitch.tv to just twitch.tv) it simply redirects to the mobile site again. How can I force it to show me the full web page instead please ?

Many thanks

Zoe

Recover inactive tabs

Hello all,

As the subject suggests, I’m trying to figure out how I can recover about 180 tabs I lost while the inactive tabs setting was enabled. I don’t remember Firefox crashing - I just noticed a few days ago that all my inactive tabs were gone and have since been trying to find a way to recover them, with no success.

Which is why I’m here. Is there a way to access Firefox’s iOS files? From my research, I’m thinking it’s possible info on tabs might still be stored somewhere in those files.

Thanks in advance!

I finally ditched chrome for the last time. Reinstalled Firefox on all my devices. Now, on my Android phone, the browser is correctly in English, but my account.firefox.com information is in Spanish. My phone has no Spanish keyboard installed, nothing Spanish. On my PC, account.firefox.com displays in English. Some of the emails I receive are in Spanish and some in English. Any suggestions appreciated. Firefox is picking up on something I can't find. I've set my account info from system default to English. No help.

What's going wrong with pinning websites to the desktop? On my old Tesco Hudl2 tablet, I could pin any website I wanted to the desktop.

On my new Lenovo tablet, I am able to pin sites like toolstation.com and Tesco groceries, but not yell.com or groceries.asda.com

On my phone (a Xiaomi X3 Poco NFC), I had successfully pinned traveline.com and yahoo.co.uk, but both of those pins disappeared recently, and now I can't re-pin them. Both remain pinned on my tablet.

Am I doing something wrong? Why is this feature so inconsistent?

Both the Phone and Tablet are running Firefox 104.1.0 (Build #2015898515), 99759dd72+ AC: 104.0.8, 3dc0ff00e7 GV: 104.0-20220816115024 AS: 93.7.2 The phone runs Android version 11 RKQ1.200826.002 The tablet runs Android version 9 TB-X705F_S210164_201119_ROW

I use Dashlane password manager which only half works in Firefox on my Samsung s22 Ultra. I have to manually open Dashlane copy a password and paste it into Firefox. At that point it would automatically fill. But that's not the real problem. I opened up the clipboard and found a whole collection of my passwords. How do I set up Firefox to clear the clipboard on exit?
