Hello.

When I try to sign into websites, and being prompted for my webauthn, I usually receive a popup asking me to swipe my yubikey to confirm my identity.

Now when I try to sign-in, it immediately says "invalid key" without a popup window asking me to swipe my NFC key to complete the login.

How so I sign into my accounts? I really don't want to use Chrome or Google. And Firefox is my only alternative.

Firefox sideloaded to Nvidia Shield - Controller doesn't work! (It works fine on Vivaldi)

Hello All, For some unknown reason, the browsers available on Play Store for Nvidia Shield are crap - so far I've not found any that allow me to easily sync bookmarks etc between Shield/PC/Mobile.

I therefore tested and found Opera and Vivaldi sideloaded to my Nvidia Shield TV Pro both worked perfectly.

I wanted to use test Firefox as I was about to use this as my main preferred PC/mobile browser, but first I wanted to check it all worked OK.

I was able to sideload and set up Firefox, but as soon as I open a webpage the Controller stopped working.

How can this be fixed please?

Please don't suggest a browser that's intended for AndroidTV on the Shield Play Store - they are all crap due to the reasons I mentioned, the controller with Right Joysick acting as mouse pounter works perfectly on Opera and Vivaldi, so I don't understand why this it doesn't work on Firefox.

I hope this can be fixed/resolved as I would like to use Firefox as an alternative.

Thanks and regards!

Hi,

I am a frequent user of Firefox on multiple platforms, including Android 14, where I frequently use DeX.

However, I am many times forced to use Chrome or Samsung Internet on DeX to get a professional computer desktop experience.

Firefox does not recognize different mouse button clicks and neither does it view websites with high resolution, not even after selecting "Desktop mode", but instead shows a zoomed-in phone view. (I gave tried selecting various zoom levels in settings.) There may be other shortcomings as well.

Perhaps some of the issues can be avoided by changing some settings? However, please address the issue of providing a full desktop experience in DeX. Thanks for a great browser in most other respects on multiple platforms.

Firefox Android autofill with external app

I use an external password manager on my Android phone - Nextcloud Passwords. It works with Google Chrome, Firefox Focus, DuckDuckGo, and other browsers. However, the main Firefox browser does not allow me to use the autofill feature with this manager app. Here are the steps to reproduce:

  1. On a page with a username/password field, select one of the fields (give it focus)
  2. The soft-keyboard appears and an "Autofill" popup appears (good!)
  3. Pressing on the "Autofill" popup opens my password manager (good)
  4. Selecting the password to fill in the manager app returns me to the page
  5. Another popup should appear with the name of the site password selected in the manager app, and it looks like it does briefly, but another "Autofill" popup appears immediately. No username/password is filled.

This results in an endless loop of pressing the "Autofill" popup, selecting the password in the manager app, then the "Autofill" popup appears again.

System Information: Samsung Galaxy S22 Android 13 Kernel version 5.10.136 Build number TP1A.220624.014.S901U1UEU3CWGI Firefox Android version 117.1.0

Hello, I recently changed my password for my Firefox account and now I was unable to enter my new password to log in. I logged out of my account to see if it would work, but to no avail, and now I am signed out completely with the all my attempts to sign back in resulting in a forever-loading page.

Installing another version of Firefox does not work, as it tries to redirect me to the Google Play Store (which Amazon devices do not support). The method I tried to use is in the following link: https://www.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/all/#product-android-nightly. If this is the way to do so, would I have to uninstall my current version of Firefox?

Thank you.

Is there a way to have Firefox respond/be the default for the Google Assistant instead of Chrome?

Are there any other voiced activated assistants that can do this?

Can I use Bixby like Google Assistant, and have these things done.

I would also like all home page shortcuts to open Firefox. even those that were placed there by Chrome.

How can I resolve the issue of my website not displaying properly on Mozilla Firefox browser, specifically with regards to the layout and formatting? Are there any specific CSS or HTML codes that need to be modified to ensure compatibility with Firefox, and are there any known compatibility issues between Firefox and certain web development frameworks or libraries that I should be aware of?

On Windows, although there is no downward arrow like in other browsers, the options do come up when I click into the input field.

On Android, nothing.

For sometime now I have been unable to access my Bell email on Firefox except if I use private browsing and then it allows me to get to my login and by default allows me to enter my login and password. But if I don't use privacy browsing mode, I cannot get to my email. This is on my android Samsung phone btw. Bell tells me it's a browser issue and that I'm to contact Firefox or switch to Chrome or Edge, but I'd rather do it through Firefox. Can anyone assist as to how I can correct this issue?
