I have data(Bookmarks,saved logins etc) on my android device I need synced to my PC. But the sync option in android doesn't work. The option to scan QR code doesn't work at all. The camera just shows black. Login through email just shows a non-responding Sync now option and greyed out sync choices. Please help me somehow sync it or at least export the data to my PC.

'Support" in gPlayStore said to come here for help. So far, NO JOY.

When you suddenly stripped away access to about:config, you also wiped out my previously working PROXY SETTINGS? WHY??? What gave you the right to screw that up as part of "updating???"

Rather than fascisticsally removing about:config, WHY NOT CREATE A MECHANISM TO BACK-UP, RESTORE, RESTORE-TO-LAST-KNOWN-GOOD and OFFLINE EDIT :config SETTINGS. THAT would be USEFUL IDIOT-PROOFING, rather than taking away about:cofig.

If idiots are wrecking their FFforA by breaking things in about:config, LET THEM UNINSTALL/REINSTALL and START OVER FROM SCRATCH.

Why PUNISH EVERYONE ELSE???

The Devs are smarter than this. So are Power Users. Forcing Nightly and/or Beta is overbearing and arrogant.

Login window for Basic Authentication disappears after returning from the password manager

Hello everybody, Since the last major update (the address bar can be seen at the bottom of the display since the update), the login to a website via Basic Authentication no longer works if I use the Keepass2Android password manager to enter the password. If I want to log into a website using Basic Authentication with Firefox, the dialog box for entering a username and password appears first. In the Username field, instead of entering the name, I choose the function "Fill in with Keepass2Android". It then switches to the Keepass2Android app and I select an entry there. After the selection, it will switch back to Firefox for Android. The input field for username and password is filled and can only be seen for a fraction of a second before it disappears. However, it is not possible to register without pressing the "OK" button and I cannot access the website. I've already tried every possible setting in both Firefox and Keepass2Android. Unfortunately without success. A new version of Keepass2Android has not been released in the meantime, so that the cause is very likely to be due to the new Firefox version. I'm using a Samsung A50 with Android 10. Thank you in advance for your support. I am at your disposal for questions. regards Michael

Hello, I am curious how we can customize the share options that show up on any webpage after tapping the 3 mashed potato balls at the top right. You can see that for me it brings up two options: discord and samsung messages. The most convenient method for me is to just copy the link. There used to a be an icon I could tap that did this but now it's gone. I assumed that the two suggested sharing methods cycle based on frequency of use. However the option to Copy Link is not even in the list of all possible sharing methods when you tap the 3 balls. It's quite a long list of essentially every app and sharing method on my phone including stuff nobody uses (like flipboard).

tl;dr how can I put the Copy Link share method/button in the top right of any page?

Thank you and have a nice day.

Hello. I use sync on two devices only, a PC and an android device. Today it has ceased to sync data to and from the android device. It just says "Last sync: never" even after clicking the sync button. The only thing I found online was to not have over 5000 bookmarks (which I don't) and to update Firefox. (I'm on the latest version)

So far I've tried clearing the data of the app, which didn't work so I tried reinstalling it entirely. That also didn't help. I've removed all duplicate devices from my account settings too.

Not sure what more I can do

EDIT:

Fixed itself of course only after I post here. I waited a few hours too..

Hi. Nowhere can I find a place to comment on the update. I am writing this in the hope that Technical Support will read this and will implement improvements in the future.

I update Firefox to version 79.0.5 on Android. The question is whether it is possible to restore this sharing in some options or do I just have to install an earlier version for it to work?

Before the update, when I shared any page from any browser, I had the option to "share to device" without having to launch the page on Firefox. It helped a lot, flipping the pages to the computer for reading later. Now, this option is unavailable.

Now, in the share menu I only have a "Firefox" icon and the page opens in my browser where I need to find the share icon and then find my device. It takes much more time and is less intuitive. The second thing, previously, the choice of the device was easier to read because the entire name was displayed. Now there is only the beginning part of the name.

I made a screen of what it looked like before (white theme) and now (black theme). Best regards.

Hey I think version 69 still had the 'Recently closed tabs' view, but I cant find it on version 81. I already searched this site and also googled it.

I closed a tab accidentaly that i opened some time ago. So searching through my history won't do it since it was an article of a site where i opened and read like 20 articles, I also cant remember the name of it.

I guess it was removed in favour of a more simplistic UI? If so I would really like the devs to consider adding that back in, I know that there is an option for reopening the tab right after closing it, but it is possible to miss it or your device just bugging/slowing down on you when you do this. This happened a few times to me.

Thanks in advance!

Hello. Thanks for such good free software. Firefox for PC/win is very good and have not any problem and android version was very good but this is several month it changed and become a bad web browser for expert users. about:config not worked and many add-ons too. several useful abilities not in new. I install Firefox nightly and it has ability of about:config but not good like older android Firefox.

A very bad problem: in older version when i was clicking on a .html file in file manager or ex file explorer these showed several app (all web browsers and several editors app) and i was choosing Firefox for opening .html file. But now Firefox and Firefox nighty are not shown on file manager menu and i can not open any .html files or .txt file by Firefox. only by type address-bar (file:///storage/emulated/0) can open .html. My android is 10. Please solve this problem. Thanks.

Since I installed Firefox on my android phone, I cannot download anything directly from the browser. Anything I try to download returns with the "Download Failed" message, it being a photo, a .zip file, a pdf file or anything in between.

I'm using a Xiaomi Redmi Note 4 with Android 7.0. Chrome on the other hand seems to work flawlessly. Firefox is set as the default browser for the device, given all the permissions (storage, camera, microphone, etc) and set to unlimited data usage on both WiFi and mobile data. What is rather peculiar is that my friend's Xiaomi Redmi Note 4x that has firefox installed, downloads any file without error.

Attached are pics showing the issue.
