Hello,

I am writing a Bachelor thesis on the Theme "Data privacy analysis on mobile Android Browser". Therefore I chose Firefox for Android and Firefox Focus ass two of the browsers to compare.

While a lot of information is online available or is presented in the app itself it seems that the following points are not:

- Does Firefox for Android support and implement by default a safe browsing API like Firefox Focus? (https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/safe-browsing-firefox-focus)

- Does Firefox for Android or Firefox Focus support Secure DNS as the desktop version? If so are these enabled by default?

- Does Firefox for Android or Firefox Focus preloads pages while using a search engine in order to increase browsing speed?

- Does Firefox for Android saves Auto-fill form data? If so, how can this data be deleted again?

- Most browsers block in their Site settings "Pop-ups and redirects". Firefox for Android blocks pop-ups and Firefox Focus does not block them. Although I could not find any information regarding the "redirects" aspect. Is Firefox on mobile Devices allowing those?

Thanks in advance for any information!

Add the title of the topic mentions, whenever I use the send tab option to send Tabs from my PC to my Android phone something weird happens. I send a tab that is open (in normal mode) on my PC to my Android phone using the send tab option. For some weird reason it goes and opens that sent tab in the private browsing section on my Android, even though it was a normal tab on my PC that I normally sent to my Android and want it to open in the normal section of my firefox on Android along with all other tabs that I may have open in the normal suction on, but it doesn't. The tab just goes and opens in the private browsing section. Why does that happen? Is it just happening on my phone or is anyone else having the same problem? It's there a fox to this?

I want the sent tabs from my PC to open in normal section on my Android phone instead of automatically opening in private browsing section. That's all

Is there some option of changing download folder from internal storage to external storage when downloading under Firefox for Android!! I wonder why the Firefox developers did not provide under android the facility to change download folder in "Settings" or "Tools“ from internal storage to change it to external SD Card storage. Will be very useful, and I will be very thankful to you! Otherwise, the browser is excellent, very quick and magnificent

Hello, I have been using Firefox for so long, and it's one of my favorite web browser on Windows as well as on Android. Firefox update for Android has become frustrating for many people including me, as most of the features aren't available in this new FF. One of them is about:config system settings, where i use to change some usefull features by going through that option. Sadly, this isn't available in the new update as of now. So, I would like to request you that please add this option as soon as possible in the coming updates. Another request would be, to be able to change the dns within the browser for using secure dns like DoH. As this option is available in desktop browser, i will be happy to get this option even on Android as well. Thank you.....

How to disable gestures in Firefox on Android?

Dear Mozilla Support,

I'm using an android tablet in online teaching, presenting PDF documents via BigBlueButton (in case that the application matters). I had issues with the Chrome browser, because very often when writing manual notes on the PDF, BBB lost connection with the pen (although the browser still reacted to the pen).

I found that Firefox worked much better, i.e., the pen-related incompatibility between BBB and Chrome has never occurred with Firefox. Thank you for that!

However, after upgrading the tablet a few days ago, a very annoying problem occurs in Firefox: It now tries to understand "gestures". The consequence: When I present a PDF file, that I turn to landscape full screen on the tablet, and try to write on the left half of the PDF file, Firefox apparently interprets my handwriting as gestures and thus keeps switching tabs. It already gave me several angry fits during my lectures.

The local support at my university told me that gestures could in the past be disabled via "about:config", but alas, the new firefox version does not allow to open "about:config".

I believe it is two bad choices of the Firefox developers to use gestures by default and to prevent the user from changing the default. But criticism aside: How can I solve the problem, or at least work around the problem? The local support told me that using the nightly build might be a solution. Would it? If yes, how to obtain it?

Best regards, Simon

Ever since the Firefox for Android 79 was released I cannot upload an image to any website. For example the form where I am typing this question has a field Add images (optional):. When I click the Browse button below it, the system select dialog appears, I select an image and when I click Done, Firefox returns to the page and re-renders it as if the app is restarted, and the chosen image does not appear in the field. I noticed that if I spend very little time in the select file dialog, e.g. choose one of the recent images, the file selection is successful – it appears in the form field and can be uploaded. I don’t know if is connected to this issue but when I switch quickly (like less than 5 seconds) to a messaging app to retrieve anaccess code for example, the page is re-rendered again. Tried installing and uninstalling to no avail. Reinstalled the last version before the Firefix Daylight upgrade, 69.11.0, and there I had no problem. I am using Samsung Galaxy A10 with Androud 10.

Firefox for android rarely loads webpages correctly and I am constantly being redirected when it does, it's been happening since August/September 2020 but I can't recall which version I had at the time (I have version 88 at present). Most of the time I get the error telling me to try again, it may do this several times before page loads and most times I'm redirected. I have add-ons HTTPS EVERYWHERE & UBLOCK ORIGIN. I've disabled my add ons a few times to rule them out but I still had some of the same issues. Any suggestions would be so helpful. Thank you in advance for your help and time.
