For some reason most addons stopped being available on android, I'm not sure if this happended because of the build I'm using or is it like that for everyone Is there any way to fix this?

I read something about Firefox Nightly having an option to install all addons, but that doesn't work for me either

Using Firefox 68.12.0ESR. I know 78 is available, I just haven't had the time to test it yet. I delete cookies when I exit Firefox. I want to keep some for sites that I trust, such as this site. I've added exceptions to Allow these trusted sites as documented on a thread somewhere else, but it doesn't work. All cookies are deleted.

Is it possible to keep cookies only for a select group of sites. eg. support.mozilla.com, tomshardware.com, mydigitallife.net, speedtest.net and so on.

Thank you.

Firefox keeps taking me to Yahoo search despite Google being the choice

Hi guys, I'm on Firefox QUantum 68.11.Oesr and I have a problem with my searches. NO matter what I do, it keeps taking me to Yahoo search which I hate but I can't figure out how to fix that. I've had that happen before and a buddy helped me fix it but I can't get hold of him.

Google is set in the options so that's not the problem. This is driving me nuts 'cause I search for stuff frequently and I hate Yahoo.

Thanks

George

I am facing the problem to open the sites. When I used the network, it show the following error:

Hmm. We’re having trouble finding that site.

We can’t connect to the server at www.google.com.

If that address is correct, here are three other things you can try:

   Try again later.
   Check your network connection.
   If you are connected but behind a firewall, check that Firefox has permission to access the Web.

Please let me know your suggestion and comments.

Are there any ways to make the default home screen dark in Android version of Firefox 68.10.1?

I've set my default home screen as about:home which I assume is default by default. I was wishing for a darker colorscheme/custom colorscheme! Because during day time, I tend to the use light a.k.a. the default colorscheme, however, at night, the light colorscheme literally puts strain in my eyes, and Im pretty sure any nightowls could hands down agree with that. Now, I've tried an extension called Dark background white text extension and it puts a darker color on my home screen, which is amazing, however during a search, the background unexpectedly changes to bright color. Also, the menus and the settings tab could also use a darker coloescheme! I've tried firefox nightly on my android, and liked it because of its darker colorscheme, but the basic Firefox that I'm using now, feels more comfortable (: If there's any way to implement dark mode on the app that'd be dope! Aside from that, keep up the good work!

Firefox ESR crashes at watching videos with "alsa_stream_get_position: Assertion `delay >= 0' failed"

hello, i have a Raspberry Pi 4 with 4GB and Raspberry Pi OS installed. (2020-05-27-raspios-buster-armhf.zip)

when i use the stock Firefox ESR (installed via sudo apt install firefox-esr) and watch videos (e.g. on Youtube, Vimeo, ...), Firefox does crash some times. according about:crashes, i already have submitted about 60 crash reports.

but watching the reports one thing is missing. when i open firefox from the console i can see some output, that is not appearing in the reports.

... firefox-esr: /build/firefox-esr-RgOFaD/firefox-esr-68.11.0esr/media/libcubeb/src/cubeb_alsa.c:1255: alsa_stream_get_position: Assertion `delay >= 0' failed. ExceptionHandler::GenerateDump cloned child 3366 ExceptionHandler::SendContinueSignalToChild sent continue signal to child ExceptionHandler::WaitForContinueSignal waiting for continue signal... Exiting due to channel error. Exiting due to channel error. Exiting due to channel error. Exiting due to channel error. Failed to open curl lib from binary, use libcurl.so instead Firefox ESR crashes when playing videos on Raspberry Pi OS (Debian)

during watching videos in firefox there is more different output to see that seems to be harmless. but always and only this line is printed to console, just befor Firefox crashes: firefox-esr: /build/firefox-esr-RgOFaD/firefox-esr-68.11.0esr/media/libcubeb/src/cubeb_alsa.c:1255: alsa_stream_get_position: Assertion `delay >= 0' failed. so i assume this is the main reason, why Firefox crashes on my system.

any idea how i can get these issue fixed? at the moment when i want to watch videos reliable i am be forces to use the external VLC Player by copy the url to VLC - at least for Youtube videos. but i want to watch videos from other web pages as well and i prefer to watch videos in firefox directly.

Hi. As I explained to everyone if I update Firefox you block an website that I been using for 5 years or more here is the web site https://gogoanime.so/ . Even after disabled the safety settings. So what is the point of updating Firefox except for the safety feature and blocking of a site I used for years. https://gogoanime.so/ . Try going in to the website in the updated version of Firefox with the safety settings on and off then tell me how to access the website I used for years

Hello,

My time is wrong in Firefox. When I see the time stamps of my productivity on any social or business site, they are about 4 hours ahead. In other browsers (Chrome & Edge), everything is fine. In Windows, my time is properly set. This includes my Time Zone in Control Panel as well.

I have uninstalled Firefox, restarted, and did a fresh install. I am having the same issue.
