The "top sites" feature is a nice idea, but most of the time I don't use it.

So I was wondering if it's possible to disable or remove it.

If not, could a extension be created, to disable or remove it?

Nexus 10, Android 4.3

If I respond to reddit threads there are times when I hit the text field and it shows a cursor, but as I type the text will not show. The text is being entered and I can see it in the keyboard suggestion. I have to blind type some text, hit the switch app menu and select Firefox again to see what I typed.

It also has a hard time determining where the cursor actually is ( this text box I'm typing in just did this when I tapped a word to edit it ). If I try to move the cursor it seems to be stuck where it last was no matter how many times I click to move it. It visually appears to move, but if I start typing the text replaces or types where I last was. Swapping to the app selection screen and back seems to reset the cursor properly after I tap again.

On top of that, there are times when I close a tab ( I know, not related to slowness,etc.) the content of the closed tab will show up overtop of the tab that should be showing.

Also, it doesn't matter if I set the about:config flag the the smart bar or whatever it's called, touching tre page makes my tab bar slide closed and I want it to remain open like the last version.

This latest version is just really bad and it's starting to piss me off!

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.

Hi,

Since the lastest 79.0.5 Firefox for Android version was installed on my mobile phone (Samsung Galaxy Note 4), autofilling connexion fields (logins + passwords) on every websites I visit is not possible anymore.

All logins and passwords are still there, and Firefox still maintains the list up to date (if I enter a wrong password for example, FF proposes to update its list). But this list isn't usable anymore for autocompletion.

This page on Mozilla support is not up to date on this purpose, because the switch to activate autofill function has disapeared from this version :

https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/logins-sync-autofill-saving-firefox-preview#w_turn-on-autofill

Here is a screenshot of what I see (french version), and no switch there...

Is it a bug, and how to get it back ? Thank you for your help.

Valerie

First of all I had all the right to complain in my last post for 2 reasons 1) you expect everyone to have perfect internet to keep up with the cache limit in android Firefox. 2) I typed out a very long email to the email listed in app store. I see other people that are not even part of a company able to read emails, Firefox should have no issue reading emails from users in app store. I mean seriously, if you can't support it you are doing something very wrong, you would think FOSS/FLOSS would have this issue worse than your company but they don't.

Firefox for android has no download indicator bar, it only says downloading.

No way to tell how long will it take and how fast it is downloading.

Please do add and a download indicator with the download progress numerical indicator, just like what you did for firefox for windows.

As mentioned in [1], Firefox "Fennec" has reached "end of support" (Version 68.11.0 is the latest you can get). Its successor is Firefox Daylight (codename "Fenix"). But I can't find a place at Mozillas webservices, where I can download an APK to install Firefox Fenix on my Android mobile device.

Using Google Play is no option to me, since I want to run a privacy friendly mobile device without any Google services. Privacy is my main reason, why I would like to use Firefox on my mobile device.

@Mozilla: Please provide such an APK download location for Firefox Daylight (Fenix), as you did with Firefox Fennec!

There is already a discussion about this topic in https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1293461, but this topic is about "Fennec APK download" and is marked as "solved", since a "Fennec APK downloads" had been provided. And there is https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1293483, talking about "Fennec nightly APKs".

Using https://github.com/mozilla-mobile/fenix/releases to download APKs seems to be a bit unreliable, since not every build has attached APKs.

So I start this new question, in order to find a solution for Firefox Daylight (Fenix) APK downloads.

Thanks you!
