When visiting some Chinese commercial websites with firefox, I often encounter errors as shown in the screenshot. But other browers like Chrome have no such problem. I know this is because the websites didn't obey the protocol, but does anybody know how to resolve this problem?

Some example webpages are listed below: https://www.jianshu.com/p/1e09fbcfe21b https://m.bilibili.com/video/av9833732 Any link in this page: https://m.huxiu.com/moment/1721.html

I know the reason: more and more Chinese business websites are trying forcing users to install and visit their websites via their own apps rather than universal brower, so that they can raise their visiting flow, and then they can attract more investors.

When I click the Share symbol on Youtube videos Forefox no longer has a "copy link" function, instead it offers me a dozen different ways to share the video that aren't relevant.

If I want to paste a youtube link or imbed a video onto a forum, I have to click on share, text message it to myself, and then copy and paste the link from the message.

This is insane. Just let me copy the link like it used to.

Does anyone know how to fix this?

On the previous Firefox browser I had on my Android phone, I set it to close all my tabs when I closed the browser. I've just updated to the new Firefox on Android and I can't find the option to do this. I have to manually close all the tabs every time I close the browser. Surely they haven't given us less options and features in the new version?!

Pressing quit in the app closes the tabs but it doesn't also close the app down on my phone.

I'm not sure what category this falls under. I feel stupid, this seems like it should be real obvious, but I don't see a way to get to the homepage. There's no little house icon, nothing in the pulldown menu, and I can't fimd info about it. Has it always been this way and I'm just now noticing it? I've been using the Collection feature, but can't go to those sites if I can't get to the homepage.

I'm really upset! The new v79 has half the features and sync wasn't running: always shows "last sync on 1970" and didn't let me select what to sync. I cleared the cache, not solved... I cleared all my data, reconfigured, but still no sync! So I removed the app and manually installed the old one. Guess what? It still doesn't sync!!! Now I'm left with the Firefox I know and love but I can't use it because I have NO credentials and no bookmarks... I would like to kick someone...

When I open a new tab and then try to switch back to a previous tab the previous tab is obscured by a blank page. I can drag the page down slightly to see part of the underlying tab but if I release it it covers it up again. Anyone else have this problem?

for the awful piece of garbage being passed off as an update to what was once the best browser around?

This pos is wrong in soooo many ways and the patronising statement that Mozilla is 'listening" is just an insult.

Downgrading isn't an option because previous versions aren't available. Windows yes, Android no. That must be because no one would stay with the latest version, so we're forced to stay with it. NOT Me. After 20 years I'm dumping Firefox. This latest version is crap and I'm not willing to settle for reduced productivity or ease of use out of blind loyalty. I had to install Opera to do something that FF couldn't. It's faster than FF, less page conflicts, shares bookmarks between devices and is far better than the crapgrade that is FF80.1.x - far better.

The best thing is for Mozilla to go bust, that way there's a chance that whoever buys the remains realises that satisfying customer needs rather than their own weird ideas is what's important.

Maybe if enough readers vote for this post it'll send a message that this crapgrade isn't fit for use and is hated. They would do well to abandon it and reinstate the previous version, but that would mean admitting their mistake, and Mozilla has never done that, preferring instead to brainwash us that we'll like it when we're use to it. Bull.

Time is running out. Market share has fallen consistently and the competition has improved whilst FF has deteriorated. This crapgrade could be the straw that breaks it. It is for me. I'm importing my bookmarks into Opera and configuring it on desktop and Android. Sadly, after being with FF since the beginning (at work and home) and with Netscape Navigator before that, it's the end of the road for me. The world needs a variety in apps, but whatever this one has to offer, the price is too high.
