A website I am trying to use requires JavaScript to use. From what I've seen, JavaScript should be enabled by default, but I want to make sure and/or reset it to see if the website will work then. However, when I tried to figure out how to do that, the only suggestion on here was to change it through about:config, which doesn't do anything. I tried to look that up as well, and I believe someone said that had been taken out so it doesn't work anymore.

I am using FireFox on my Android phone. I've just installed the app, so I'm not missing an update or anyrhing like that.

So how do I make sure JavaScript is enabled? And if it is, how do I troubleshoot to figure out what is actually wrong with the site?

Thank you!

Yahoo is not offered as one of the choices for the homepage and the instructions as to how to enter it or in Chinese as far as I'm concerned. I've tried to copy what it says to do and it just does not work for me. Does anybody know how to help me do this before I lose my freaking mind? I have a Motorola Moto g Play phone and it is the worst piece of garbage I have ever bought in my life. I have never had this problem with any other phone I have owned

I had a simple use case, I had an (important) receipt I needed to save as pdf. Why isn't there/what happened to the save as pdf in firefox? I see there was a way to save as PDF before.

I'm pretty technical, I'd like an in depth answer if possible. Was there some library which couldn't compile on newer versions of android perhaps?

Is there another way to save a page, like a receipt, in firefox?

Pocket, etc. simply doesn't cut it, I need the actual html page saved, as-is, not some link service.

Hello there,

The problem that i am getting is that when i am downloading a file from the browser , it only shows on the screen notification panel but not in the 'downloads' section of the browser. And when i pause the download, even after having downloaded more than 50 percent it would completely disappear and then i find no option to resume the download.. This is a major issue kindly help me sort it out.

My tabs have been ballooning like crazy because of this. I like the feature firefox has to resume browsing where you left off, however, it's been very frustrating to manage lately because of this.

Basically, say i have 10 tabs open, i close out of 5 of the tabs and then exit the app, when i reboot the app, those 5 tabs will be back open and i will have 10 tabs open once again!

Any ideas what might be up with this?

Hello, the firefox autofill for apps on my android phone is not working properly. I have firefox selected in autofill service. I have 'autofill in other apps' selected as well. Sometimes the 'search firefox' prompt appears. When it does I usually have to use biometrics to log in, restart the desired app, and search for the password when prompted again. If I have gotten this far, I am often only able to input the username and not the password. Is there a way to manually pull the prompt? Is there a way to copy the password from the android password manager once it is pulled up? Thank you

There currently seems to be no way at all to completely disable the search feature of the address bar. When I type in a wrong address it should say the address is invalid or could not be reached instead of sending it to some search engine. This is a major privacy issue!

It tried all the about:config settings suggested in other similar threads. Nothing works. I can't delete the last search provider.

I also can't add an empty search provider that resolves into nothing, as the interface actively tests whether the search provider is reachable.

The url bar will always try to send my precious spelling errors of embarassing urls I want to visit to some search provider. This is a privacy nightmare...

It is an ADDRESS BAR after all and a HUGE security risk to find search in the same area

Download Link doesn't work (or at least that's what I think)

Hi,

If I go to a page that has image previews that link to the full size image, I expect "Download Link" on Firefox Android to download that full size image, like how it is in Desktop version, but it doesn't and just downloads that preview image, like how "Save Image As..." works on Desktop. Am I missing something?

I _don't_ mean Google Image Search, In other words I'm talking about a gallery website that has thumbnails and those are links to full size images and instead of opening them one by one and saving, I want to be able to hold my finger on the link and download the image that it leads to, like how Firefox desktop works but it's not happening in the Android version and it downloads the thumbnail instead.

For example, if you go this website: [https://www.myfacehunter.com/2015/04/.../chrissy-teigen-shows-off-legs-for-2015.html] and click on the first image, it opens up [link] but instead what Firefox Android currently does is to download the thumbnail instead which is [https://3.bp.blogspot.com/-hsciP7o0JF.../Chrissy-Teigen%2B-2015-White-House-Correspondents-Association-Dinner--01.jpg|this]

I made this post yesterday but didn't get the answer, hope this clears things up.

I'm using the latest version and am on Android 10.

Cheers.

Firefox account is verified and syncs on Linux (Debian, firefox esr). On android (actually android compat on sailfishos) the account can be signed into but is always flagged as requiring verification. Have purged app data to no avail. Tapping the box does not send a verification email. Not sure what else to try.

Understanding the release calendar -- when does addon support go away?

Hi! I understand that Add-On support for Firefox for Android is going away soon, per https://blog.mozilla.org/addons/2020/02/11/faq-for-extension-support-in-new-firefox-for-android/ and similar pages, but I cannot find a clear timeline.

I'm worried that one day I will take a Firefox update on my Android device and suddenly the addons I rely on (e.g. Tampermonkey) will stop working with no warning and I'll have no good recourse.

How do I prevent that from happening?

How do I find out when Firefox Android will drop add-on support (I guess this is like asking when the current Firefox Preview will become the release channel?)?

I have not been able to find an equivalent of https://wiki.mozilla.org/Release_Management/Calendar for Firefox for Android.

Thanks!
