Hello

Unfortunately firefox hasn't translate on page for Simplify searching,reading articles and etc. This is clearly that We can use Google translate for find definitions of words but it's not useful. As you know part of references aren't English. We need complete translate resemble Google translate on page.

App passwords don't autofil

I have FF 93.2.0 (Build #2015839747) AC: 93.0.12, e39f5dba3f GV: 93.0-20210927210923 AS: 82.1.0 installed on my Samsung S8 and syncing with FF on my windows 10 laptop. Mo… (read more)

I have FF 93.2.0 (Build #2015839747) AC: 93.0.12, e39f5dba3f GV: 93.0-20210927210923 AS: 82.1.0 installed on my Samsung S8 and syncing with FF on my windows 10 laptop. Most of the time FF will autofil passwords on the phone for sites I've previously set up logins for on the laptop. However, it refuses to autofil, or even suggest, passwords for apps for the same companies, despite this feature being enabled in settings. For instance, I am offered autofil for Sainsburys as a browser page, but not the apps. Any ideas? Also, FF for android wont suggest passwords for new sites. I have to set up new accounts on the laptop first. Then FF for android will make the passwords available. Are these issues linked and how can I resolve them?

Firefox for Android 7.0, Firefox 94.1.2 and Logins and Password

"Autofill in other Apps" selection never appears in the menu for the above set up but does appear in an Android 8.1 version with the same Firefox version of 94.1.2.

The 7.0 Android version never offers a valid saved login for external apps.

The 8.1 Android version will pop up a text box below the User ID entry that says "Unlock Firefox" but selecting the text box does nothing. The same text box also appears below the password box after manually entering the User ID and selecting CONTINUE to get to the Password entry box (but only in 8.1) If you Long Press the User ID or Password box in 8.1 it offers a Paste selection but it's not a UID or Password, just the last Cut item.

In Android 10.0 Long Press on the UID or Password box will bring up an "Autofill" box but it does nothing and does not offer a UID or Password anywhere for external apps.

Something is clearly broken in External App password from Firefox for Android. All the available settings are as they should be set. The Password fill works as it should from the Web Page of the same App entity, say Amazon for example.

So.....whose problem is this?

Hello,

as the Firefox Sync is not working with incognito tabs (which is sort of intended), I sometimes stumble on the problem that I opened an URL in incognito mode but find it useful to safe for later reference (be it rereading, quoting or whatever).

Since some time (a few weeks maybe) I found the option to share the incognito tabs gone. I can share regular tabs but the option is not there for the incognito tabs. To test this, I go to the list of open tabs and long-press one of the tabs of interest. Recently, I was able to select some tabs and tap the share icon. This no longer happens.

Was this intentionally removed? I do not see the use-case, especially as it allowed to selectively close multiple tabs quickly.

Thanks

i find it absurd and self-contradictory of Mozilla to only have firefox available through "google play store". This fact makes mozilla's claims of "privacy ethics" FALSE ADVERTISING.. I think that firefox SHOULD NOT EVEN HAVE GOOGLE AS A SEARCH ENGINE. In my opinion, Mozilla SHOULD NOT INCLUDE GOOGLE AT ALL; OR STOP CLAIMING THEY PROVIDE PRIVACY WHILE NAVIGATING THE INTERNET....(Needless to mention that any link to google is like a parasite's tentacle feeding off every users privacy...typical "typical catch /22": if a user wants to use even a megabite google's services....one must sacrifice our priceless

I have mainly switched and using firefox due to its ease of use "multiple search engine". It's been a couple of years, however I'm still unable to figure out how

Text to url Text to text works?

I mean let's say i'm gonna search "firefox now requires double click to switch search engines"

Text to url becomes like this- https://html.duckduckgo.com/html?q=firefox%20now%20requires%20double%20click%20to%20switch%20search%20engines


And text to text becomes like this- firefox now requires double click to switch search engines

Main point: In case of "text to url", search engine has processed and showed result. I click "search bar" and can copy url.

However I'm not sure how text to text works.....many times I immediately click search bar after clciking Enter or Go and the search text stays as it is.

Starting this morning I have been blocked from all Reddit pages. There's no error message, just the one word “Blocked" in the upper left corner.

I've"quit" the browser and reopened, did not fix the problem. Turning off Tracking and U-origin Ad Block also didn't help.

Curiously I can still access Reddit using my tablet, which is running the same latest build of Firefox and using the same wifi network.

I've sporadically experienced being unable to access other mainstream websites, though I can't remember which ones right now.

Any suggestions? Thanks

How the [removed] do i block pop-ups, on Android mobile phone, if i type about:config it shows a lock and says not valid and won't go anywhere. If there is no easy way to turn off pop-up ads on android mobile devices, firefox should openly say so, so people like me won't have our time wasted. I will delete the app if its not possible to block popups. Crazy that you cant access it on the menu, incredibly poor designing.

I use the Keepass2Android password manager on my Samsung S9+ smartphone. For some time now (6 months perhaps) the pop up window from Keepass2Android for filling in usernames and password fails to appear. Sometimes it appears briefly and then disappears. I have contacted the Keepass2Android developers and they say it is a problem with recent versions of Firefox for Android. Keepass2Android does work OK with other Android browsers (like Chrome, Edge, & Samsung internet browsers).

Are there any suggestions or solutions?

(The following is translated by Google Translate) I am an Android user. In the web page, click the password input box, the web page will automatically enlarge and automatically move the password input box to the center of the screen. Firstly, I do not like this design. Secondly, there are some problems with the automatic enlargement of the web page, for example, the web page will be fixed after enlargement and cannot be narrow, then,the page automatically enlarge, causing 1Password's floating window to misplace,(1password is a password manager),When you click the password input box,1password's floating window will appear,However, at this time, the web page of Firefox will automatically enlarge when entering the password,and automatically center the password box,but the floating window of 1password won't move, and it remains in place,and then there was a problem. In addition to these two problems, there is another small problem,All in all, I don't like this design, not only because I don't like it, but also because it has many problems.Therefore,I hope that we can turn off the automatic enlargement of the webpage, turn off automatic center the password box on the screen
