How do we permanently block and keep a website from being able to return bk into a person's life after the site was the cause of an immense amount of financial and emotional hardship. By having something that does this, like the Duck browser does, our clients, friends and family will feel more safe, right?

Hi community,

Hopefully, someone can help me with this strange issue:

I've installed Firefox for iOS (iPhone) and would like to add DuckDuckGo as my default search engine but there seems to be an issue with the query string as shown on this support page.

When entering DDG to the list in Settings using the suggested query string "https://www.duckduckgo.com/search?q=%s", every search in the URL text field (in this case "vin") sends me to the DDG start page where my string is changed to "search" in the search field (see image) and below with a bunch of search engines. Then I have to enter my initial search string one more time.

Hopefully, this explanation makes sense.

What can I do? Any help is very much appreciated.

Kind regards,

Peter

Sometimes I have a need to copy or edit part of very long URL that includes many passed parameters and tokens in address bar of FireFox for Android. Having to swipe twenty times to get to required position in string is not very convenient comparing to ease of such procedure on PC where you have mouse and Home/End keys.

I'd like to request for a new feature of on/off toggle for address bar in FF for Android that could switch it into multiline edit mode where all URL would be visible and easily navigated and edited. I just don't know where to submit it.

Is this a feature? If not, can it be? I frequently use reading mode, especially on horrifically laid out sites such as news and magazine sites. I frequently have to scroll up and down a bunch of times to get the address bar to come back so I can use it. How do I disable this hiding behavior? If I can’t, why? With modern phones being so absurdly tall it’s not like the bar takes up crucial real estate, people should be able to keep it visible if they want.

Thanks T

I'm trying to go to the URL "http://192.168.31.8:32004". Instead it searches, which of course has no hits. I'm baffled as to why Firefox would search when the address bar contains a valid URL. And no, I'm not hitting the search button. I hitting on-screen keyboard's right arrow, which is my only other choice. I have tried turning off all address bar options in settings with no effect.

The only solution I have found is to use a different browser. Chrome has no problem going to this URL when asked.

I see the very noticeable Android navigation bar blink while opening a keyboard from the Firefox address bar. Unfortunately, this bug persist in the Stable, Beta and Nightly Firefox versions both on my Nothing Phone and Pixel 7 Pro.

Firefox is the only app with such behavior on these devices.

initially wrote this in the Google reviews and got told to put this here, I will copy my text:

```of course the only browser currently usable mobile or otherwise. I am mostly here to report an issue, fairphone 4 / android 13 app freezes on tapping search bar

steps to reproduce : open browser and use normally for some time click search bar

this is not a brilliant diagnosis I know but it seems to be a memory issue and I don't have the toolkit to properly check. large amount of tabs open and long media consumption and fast opening and closing of tabs all seem to impact the speed of this occurring so this made the most sense to me

restarting usually fixes the issue but deletes the last ~2min of activity. very strange all in all, I will again suggest a memory leak as the problem```

When the browser tries to Autofill a URL it often goes to some popular website I never use or care about. This is a deal breaker and will have to switch to a new browser if this isn't fixed and I can't find anything in my settings to correct it. How do I fix this?

When I tapped on the firefox widget on my phone this morning, it showed "google.com" in the address bar but the page was blank. I checked this on my wife's phone and my tablet and the exact same thing happens. I tried turning off my two add blockers to see if that would make a difference but it did not. I then uninstalled and reinstalled firefox on my phone from the Google Store and logged back in and it still acted the same way. For fun, I then turned on "Desktop site" in the menu and then my normal google.com page opened up. When I turned off 'desktop site', it went back to a blank screen with the "home" icon, the address bar, number of tabs open box and the 3 dots menu bar showing on top, but nothing else. I then opened my computer and works fine on my desktop. So, not sure what is happening but definitely some problem with "google.com" address on firefox (unless I toggle on "desktop site".) I also cleared my cache (which of course, was completely empty when I deleted and then added on the firefox app at the google store). Seems like might be a problem on your end? Especially since seems to happen on all four android devices that I have. I've also attached screenshots of the two pages I get, the first regular, the second with 'desktop site' toggled on.
