So I usually read long books that are only divided in chapters online, so no page numbers, using the reader mode in dark mode to make it nicer to read. The problem is that it does not save where I stopped on the page last time while reading like firefox used to as far as I remember. This makes things annoying as I need to remember and find where I stopped reading. Again, long browser pages with no page numbers to remember. I don't even close the pages on my phone and it happens both when I close the browser or just minimize it. I remember that it used to save it without problems. Is this a bug or just a removed feature? Hopefully someone here can help as I didn't find anything helpful via google. If there are more details neededI will add them on request.

When is Mozilla bringing back the "page" feature (or just a "print" command) so that users can print directly from the browser? This missing feature has been noted by countless support requests over the last two years. It's clearly something your user base wants. If Mozilla doesn't want its browser to go the way of Internet Explorer, it needs to listen to its customers.

So I am trying to download some large files, but the server I am downloading from are extremely slow. My place doesnt have stable internet connection and during my download, almost 100% of the time, it fails. Now there is a "Try again" button that can continue downloading the file in firefox after the connection is back. When I press the button, it resumes the download from where it was, but I noticed that the files are not downloaded correctly. The file size is noticeably smaller than what it should be, and it is non-functional. My phone uses android 11 custom rom (lineage), but the same issue is also present on an older, stock anroid phone I have. This issue has been present for at least half a year and I dont know a solution. Can anyone suggest a solution?

This is a question I found posted a few years back and was hoping there has been an update in the last few year "Why can't I find autofill under settings? I have to manually fill in my information each and every time. I have followed the instructions by going to Settings and then to choose Autofill but there is no Autofill or Lockwise option. Thx"

Firefox for Android - WebExtension development

Hi,

Where can I find up-to-date information about WebExtension development for Firefox for Android?

If I go to pages like https://extensionworkshop.com/documentation/develop/developing-extensions-for-firefox-for-android/ or https://extensionworkshop.com/documentation/develop/differences-between-desktop-and-android-extensions/ I am getting info that is veeery old and with a bunch of warnings.

So my questions are: 1) What sort of environment should I set up to develop and debug extensions? 2) More importantly: where can I find a full documentation of APIs that I can use in my extension in the latest version of FF for Android. 3) Where can I expect to find timely support if I run into problems developing an extension?

Thanks.

I've noticed that starting yesterday that Firefox for Android times out whenever I try to access any website with it. I've only been able to fix it by uninstalling and reinstalling it but after I connect with Firefox Sync it fails to be able to connect to any site and everything times out.

I'm not sure what is causing this, I don't see any add-ons enabled under Firefox but perhaps Firefox Sync is automatically enabling something that is breaking the browser. Any further trouble shooting steps to diagnose would be welcome. I'm having an existential crisis using Chrome.

Update: I can confirm this happens w/o logging into Sync. For some reason Firefox for Android just starts giving The connection has timed out after being installed for a period of time. I'm running Android version 11 and have ample ram and storage space on the phone.
