With version 124 of Firefox, the ‘Dark Mode’ theme no longer works. Whether I set the theme to “Use System Light/Dark Mode” or if I manually set the theme to dark, it still always shows ‘light’ mode. FYI, my iPad settings are set to ‘Dark’ mode.

I prefer to read white text on a black background - much easier on the eyes! In earlier releases of Firefox, I was able to enjoy reading stories. Now I must set my iPad (manually whenever I want to use Firefox to read) to ‘Smart Invert’ (which will switch the Firefox window to dark mode), then turn off ‘Smart Invert’ to do anything else on my iPad.

Any assistance would be appreciated. Thanks.

I have been using Firefox for Android Beta for several years in various phones. I recently bought a new phone and the browser no longer shows an option to "Quit" when I touch the three dots on the right side of the search bar. As a result, some websites stay connected after the browser is closed. When I restart the browser I am still logged in to the websites. How can I change this? The previous phone was using version 123.0b3. The current phone is using version: 123.0b7 Thanks. Jim Hampton

I am moving to a new phone. On my old phone, Firefox can browse to links on twitter.com without opening them in the native app. This is what I want. I have been unable to get the same to happen on the new phone.

As far as I can tell the versions are the same, and I've been through the settings. Both phones are set to not open links in native apps. I have disabled "open by default" for Twitter on the new phone, even though it is not disabled on the old phone.

How can I prevent Firefox from launching the Twitter app?

Is there a way to increase the touch target (the "tappable area") of the "X" button that closes a tab?

When closing multiple tabs in a row, it's really hard to press with accuracy, and I often find myself tapping into the tab "square" itself and opening/switching to that tab by mistake.

What files must I edit from Firefox's Github repo to add wireless keyboard support for mobile/AOSP? I waited over a decade for code that should take a half hour to write.

Please help me help you. I will do all of the work for free, just tell me what files to start with. CTRL+S, CTRL+U, CTRL+S, CTRL+F, F5, resize shortcuts, nothing works.

Cheap wireless keyboards came out a decade ago, but mobile had no support, so I thought "okay, it will just take a few weeks." But weeks became years. Over a decade passed, still no progress. I will do it for you for free if you let me. If the problem was Firefox, I would just switch to Chrome, but building Chromium for Android is even harder and it also needs patched to get keyboard support.

So on my phone i have installed mona sans font via miui themes (seems like its not caused by miui themes)

I'm have tried font manager magisk module before and after knowing that it wont really work on my device, i revert to default font and uninstall it

And for some reason the fonts just look like this... (everything works fine)

Is there anything that can fix this?

Tried method: using another version of firefox [stable,beta(current),nightly] Use revert to roboto fonts on miui themes

Chromium dont have this issue

There is temporary fix for it by using font changer add-ons

I want it to fix without usint any add-ons

When are we getting the bookmarks bar? Users have been asking for this feature for YEARS, and yet you keep ignoring us, why? Why is it so hard to make?

You don't want to give us the bookmarks bar? Fine, how about fixing the home screen? Only 2 rows and 2 pages of bookmarks? Are you guys joking? How about, I don't know, 10 rows and five columns, and 10 pages? You don't have to resize anything, you just have to use the space more wisely.

Also, can you get rid of the top left logo? It's a waste of space, I already know I'm using Firefox, you don't have to remind me every time.

Also #2, move the "private browsing" icon to the 3 dots menu.

Also #3, remove the pin icon from the bookmarks tags.

Also #4, remove the grey border of the favicons, it's more space wasted, you really love wasting space and our time don't you?

Sometimes I feel like you are you do things wrong on purpose, is Google paying you to be this bad? Honestly I can't find another answer, I hope I'm wrong.

Again this is MOBILE Firefox on Android and all the backing out using arrows does is leave me with yet another empty folder. F*** that arrow button!!! It really needs to be more straight forward like making YouTube playlists or even how bookmarks work with Firefox on PC.

I really do want it to work but I have never had so much difficulty adding bookmarks to folders on any other browsers mobile or PC, this sucks!

So one more time, you select edit on a bookmark then checkmark the folder you want and arbitrarily back out without using any kind of confirmation button and then go back into said folder and expect that bookmark to be there. Am I getting that right?

Cause it would super sick if there was actually a bookmark in the damn folder when I went back to it. All I have now are empty folders so what am I missing???

Thanks for the help I greatly appreciate it and I would really like to like to keep using Firefox

Hello,

I am using Firefox Nightly for Android, and it now auto zooms when I enter text. When this happens, there is no way to zoom out without closing the keyboard and then zooming out. Once the keyboard opens again, it zooms in, making maneuverability on web pages impossible. It also has broken a few web pages such as www.bpm-lux.com.

Even when activating the "Make all websites gesture-able" there is no way to zoom back out.

There used to be a setting or access to the configuration for Firefox, but no more.

Is there a way to stop this auto zooming when entering text?

rampant false positive pull down to refresh gesture

Firefox Nightly 110.0a1 (Build #2015925675), Sony Xperia 1 mk3, 61.2.A.0.382 release-keys Android 13

Been having issues with the refresh gesture, namely it activating when just trying to scroll up the page.

I'm not certain of the proper behaviour, but I've had pull down to refresh initiate with all kinds of downward swipes; fast, slow, short and long; and in various locations on the screen; centre, sides (close enough to also start back gesture), lower third; and even seen it wanting to refresh when simply tapping to stop inertia scroll, as well as when pressing and holding to keep screen alive for seconds before pulling down to return to the top.

Noticing it initiate, then releasing upward to cancel, then repeating the previous downward swipe intermittently triggers it again; sometimes it's gone, sometimes it triggers another once or twice, and one time it just would not stop and I couldn't scroll up the page no matter where on the screen I began to swipe down.

I'm presuming it's only meant to activate in upper third or even quarter, but regardless, this is a relatively recent (several days to a week, idk) issue that I'm dealing with, although it has become rife tonight.

Some websites seem better than others, and I was considering it was a fault of some designs, but alas I couldn't find any spots where I could consistently get it to happen; not even dragging from the top of the screen is working right now, so I have no idea what's going on.

https://ok2fly.com.au/ was a nightmare; tap anywhere to open a pop-up, scroll to bottom, then try to scroll up. I've got a great little screen record to demonstrate how inconsistent it is, if anyone wants.

Lemme know if there's anything else I can do to help diagnose this.
