i really need to PERMANENTLY DISABLE the infernal, default auto-refresh session on return to already opened tab. tyranny of the default on Android.

if/when i want to refresh that session, i'll do so MANUALLY.

i want this, not only in alpha, but beta & standard, too. so, it just can't be buried in about:config, which is nanny-state removed from standard. it must be exposed in UI Settings.

i'm not the first or only to request this.

When I fill out and submit a form on Firefox for Android, the data doesn't appear as suggestions the next time I fill out the form. However, it works well on the desktop version, where I get suggestions like my first name.

Landscape fullscreen not taking full screen height

I'm using Firefox Nightly 130.0a1 on Samsung Galaxy S23 FE. When I open a video in fullscreen and it rotates to landscape, there is a large gap between the video and the edge of the screen. Interestingly, this gap is affected by the setting "Customize -> Address bar location" - If the address bar is set to appear on top the gap is on top, and if the address bar is set to appear on bottom the gap is on the bottom. I've included screenshots from both settings. This happens on both YouTube and Dailymotion, so it is a browser issue and not a site issue.

I've just happened to learn that Firefox on Android no longer uses a master password to protect passwords. That was a feature that has kept me on Firefox forever.

It is insufficient, dangerous, and insecure to rely on my device PIN. PINs are not long, can be brute forced, and law enforcement can compel discloser.

I am baffled by this choice. If it is how its going to be I have no particular reason to use Firefox and I certainly can't financially support it.

I really like FireFox mobile, but the amount of misspelled words is starting to become an actual problem for me.

I use a Samsung S8 with Android 9 and whatever predictive text functions it has are turned off because I find them beyond grating and it's just not how I check for spelling errors.

The reasoning to this function being ommitted was (last time someone asked the question) due to space.

Why can't this be an official plugin that people can add?

I'm supporting FireFox entirely for ethical reasons (the only non-chromium browser that still cares about privacy) but I just can't type like this anymore.

Will something be done about this function missing?

Firefox is getting to be more trouble than its worth. ACTIVATE FIREFOX doesnt work NOW the latest trying to log in and getting made to feel like iM a Suspicious Character.

Just tell me how this haappened. One minute my longstanding account is no longer active then PRESTO MAGICO it is active.

Matter of fact passwords and internet and TWO FACTOR ID have taken any semblance of entertainment off the board. WHY INACTIVE the active within seconds?
