Hello, I'm really big into emulation, and I was trying to download some ROMs/ISOs from vimm.net, except it would almost instantly return a download error every time. It let me download other files that were smaller (pictures, etc.), so my theory is that I can't download files over 100 MB. Can someone confirm this or give me a solution?

Agony is not being able to see changes in the browser during web development.

There must be a way.

Is it just me, or does Firefox for Android come to us with about:config a feature to hope to have someday, but planning on today is agony-enhancing?

Honestly, I am very pleased when my programming efforts seem to have no effect. It makes my existence have no meaning, creating a stress-free sensation of uselessness, until the brutal pressure of my boss and creditors encroach my blissful bubble.

I like to enjoy seeing my efforts yield nothing while roasting my feet slowly over red hot coals as I sit in my boxers on a 200 pound block of dry ice poking my eye with a freshly-sharpened pencil.

If I could clear cache for just one site, without affecting others, all this would be put into abeyance.

Just received 79.0.5 update. I have disabled all autocomplete options but if I type 'f' in URL bar it autocompletes as 'facebook'. Similarly, 't' completes as 'twitter', 'i' as 'instagram' etc. I really don't need or want my browser doing this. I tried about:config which seems to be disabled. Next I tried nightly which has about:config enabled but still couldn't disable autocomplete. I'd rather not use nightly tbh so a fix for ordinary Firefox would be appreciated.

Since the update of the new Firefox for android I am experiencing the worst possible experience opening a new tab. Let's say that I have

Foo Bar Baz

In my Tab panel

If I open a link from Bar in a new tab and open the Tab panel I still see

Foo Bar Baz

But, if I scroll, I "found" the new Qux bar on the top of the list!

This is very frustating... I expect that opening the tab pane I see Qux on the bottom of the list!

Btw with the new version there is no about:config anymore so I don't know how to customize this behavior

The Chinese font in Firefox Android always looks very strange, and makes readers very uncomfortable. Please see the screenshot below, especially the characters I highlighted -- I think all Chinese readers understand what I'm saying, and the characters 关 and 复 even has only 1/2 width of normal. Really weird. Some characters looks somewhat like Japanese font. From about:config, I find the font's name is ROBOTO, which is a western character font designed by a Google staff, and doesn't cover Chinese character. So I have no idea where the font shown comes from.

Firefox android seems to be the only browser that has such problem. In old versions, we can change the font with the Stylish addon, but there's no such addon in recent new version. As a Chinese user, I almost can't tolerate this problem anymore. In my opinion, the solution is very simple: just use the system font of Android, which is enough.

Hope the developers take this problem into account.

Click on the search bar of the Firefox browser, and enter a string of numbers with “.” in it, or a mixed input with English symbols [.], such as Firefox 80.13, and the search page will not open open.

Logically speaking, here should be the result of opening a search, not a web page.

I hope someone can see and give feedback to the engineer to fix it.

Ever since the revamp I have a lot of trouble with typing a search phrase in the address bar. After hitting enter, nothing happens. Hitting the magnifying glass: nothing. Selecting an alternate engine: nothing.

I have not noticed a definite pattern, but I want to say that it is more frequently occurring when I'm searching from a previously-opened tab (maybe something to do with trying to search from a tab that never fully opened? Just a guess.) It is not a connection problem- I switch to chrome: no problems. I want to continue using firefox, so I am writing this, but it is annoying enough that I will be forced to uninstall and use another browser if the problem persists. Good luck folks, I support Mozilla's mission and want y'all to continue to succeed
