i have some custom search engines on Firefox Android 89 (settings > search > add search engine > other).

i noticed that Firefox seems to be ordering the search engines in an arbitrary order.

when i first add the searches, they appear in the order that they are added.

but after the phone is restarted (note: not the browser, the phone), the search engines are ordered in a different way.

this same order shows up in both the settings search engine list (settings > search) and also the search engine selection list (url bar > search engine)

i have observed: - it is not sorted by alphabetical by engine name - it is not sorted by alphabetical by engine url (with or without protocol prefix) - it is not sorted by order added - it is deterministic: if i delete an engine and re-add it, even if i name it something different, after a phone restart it'll still return to the same position it was before

so my questions are: 1. how exactly does Firefox sort the search engines? 2. how do i set a custom order for the search engines?

thanks!

Hi everyone, I searched far and long but couldn't anywhere find anything about how to actually report scam/phishing/fraudulent pages of any kind to Mozilla to enable their automated blocking or at least a warning in a safe-browsing manner. I thought where is any kind of a report a page-button which I could use to report threats so others don't fall for it. Isn't there such a feature to enable secure browsing? Something preferably working in an interdisciplinary cross-browser like fashion, including chromium based ones, safari, opera and whatever else is available too. A warning system, where community-shared fraud warnings become a red fullscreen warning shown, when anyone tries to navigate a suspicious page with bad reputation.

I already reported a scam e-commerce store recently to the European Union anti-fraud page (https://ec.europa.eu/anti-fraud/contacts/fraud-reporting-form_en), but I don't know how to warn other users about it, or how to get all common browsers to show warnings on pages which have been reported as unsafe by others and are likely dangerous and should be avoided.

Often older people fall for online scams, especially those not natively grown up with the internet, how do we protect them?

This issue of a missing reporting function applies to all mobile platforms Firefox is available for, not just Android, unless I've been missing a well-hidden functionality...
