Hi everyone,

I set up my Firefox for Android to delete cookies and cache when I click on "Close".

I was happy with it but I realized several months ago than websites as leboncoin.fr, amazon.fr, decathlon.fr (yes i'm french), didn't keep me loged in but remember what I had looked for and where I was. This problem is permanent.

I don't have this problem with Firefox for Windows.

So it seems something is nor cleared from the app when I close it.

Thank you very much for your help !

I was trying to customize the toolbar and I can't recall how, but I lost access to my extension shortcuts through the menu list button on the toolbar. I've been since trying to get the button back or replace it, to access my extensions that way but I'm not finding any options to get the button back which I find ridiculous because the button is very helpful on the toolbar in utilizing your extensions. I'm kind of a newbie so I'm looking for help in how to get the button back on my toolbar so I can utilize my extensions that way, please. Thanks.

My picture-in-picture feature on my Galaxy S22 does not work on the Firefox app. The feature is clicked 'on' on my device, and is also turned on for the Firefox app specifically, yet the button does not appear on any video on the app. When I click the 'menu' button or the 'back' button on the device, the video simply stops playing. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated, thank you.

Phone: Oneplus 8 Android version: 12 Build number: IN2015_11_C.21 Firefox version: 105.1.0

Steps to reproduce: - Open Firefox - Go to a website - Click the triple vertical dots - Add to home screen - Press add - Press add

The app isn't on the home screen, but attempts to add it again fail with the message "This shortcut already exists".

How do I remove these invisible shortcuts? Can I do this through the file explorer? If not, can this be fixed?

Streaming video on websites using Firefox or Firefox Nightly like YouTube, Tubi TV etc on my Android smartphone results in a low, sluggish frame rate that can be hard to watch. When using a chromium powered web browser for media consumption like Kiwi Browser, the same video from the same website plays perfectly smooth every time.

The only extension I have installed on both the Firefox and Firefox Nightly apps on my phone is UBlock Origin.

Does anybody know of any settings or optimizations I can make that can help smooth out video streaming playback on Firefox?

When trying to close Mozilla firefox on Android, it just doesn't happen. I can "swipe" it away in app-selector, but it is still open in the background.

It is also refusing to go away from the notification bar, and I am going out of my mind, having to restart my phone each time I use the browser.

Do anyone here have a suggestion? I already tried re-installing FF and rebooting my phone obviously.

It started happening about 1 month ago.

When I open firefox mobile I have pinned short cuts and now i have history items littering the home tab. Under the customization option there is no way to prevent this and it is a massive privacy issue for me. Is there a way to stop history items from showing up on the home tab other than having it delete all browsing history and site data on exit.
