Samsung S21 with the latest version of Firefox installed, Switched to desktop view to access an option in my email thats not available on the mobile site and now firefox wont switch back to the mobile site.

If i enable desktop mode outlook.com will go to the full desktop version, but disabling the option gives me a merged version thats halfway between the two with broken buttons/links overlapping and basically a non usable site.

I used to have bookmarks and other sites I've pinned to the home page on firefox android.

Now every page I visit is showing? Not just the site, but every page on that site, every search result. It's just junk pages filling my home page.

I'm hoping this is a bug and not some attempt to decide for me what I want on my home screen. It's really frustrating.

The only way around is to clear history on exit - but history is used - i just dont need every page i see being on my home screen.

(also the language at the bottom doesn't allow me to choose my language - English - ENGLISH. I don't speak US english.)

Before a recent update, I had my xnew tab page" set up the way I wanted it, so it only showed a few pinned bookmarks and nothing else. After the update, my new tab page is now showing items from my history after my pinned bookmarks.

I have the "recently visited" toggle turned off in "customize homepage", but they're still there.

So, how do I get rid of this clutter?

Can I configure FireFox Nightly or Beta to allow port 10080 on an android phone for router "Guest" access

Forgive me. I may have posted this question already but I can't find my post.

As we know port 10080 has been blocked by many if not all internet browsers and port 10080 is the port that most routers use for their "Guest" SSID access.

I have been told that it may be possible to configure FireFox "Nightly" or "Beta" to allow port 10080 access which is what my router uses for the Guest SSID.

This would be for an Android phone to be able to connect to the Guest SSID on my router using port 10080.

Does Nightly or Beta allow this and if so what are the reconfiguration instructions so I can allow port 10080 access on the Android phone?

Thank you for your help.

I can get the sync to work on my laptop but when it comes to the Android box, it just keeps spinning [ blue circle ]. It states on the laptop what devices are syncing but I cannot sign in onto the android because it takes me to no page... just spinnnnnnnning! *sighs* Why can't you guys just leave Firefox alone and quit making all these changes. If anyone has a better browser idea, let me know.

Recently (version ~100) sites that I visit are being added automatically to my homepage as shortcuts. I've tried all different options under Settings -> Homepage but no matter what it adds them.

Attached I have a screenshot of my settings. The only two sites that should appear on the homepage are the 'Resnet' and 'WRGA' but whenever I browse it adds the additional sites and I have to keep going back and deleting every single entry one at a time.

This is a new issue for me. I don't have any plugins installed. I have tried clearing FF cache, data, and even reinstalled. I also tried disabling FF sync.

I've noticed that starting yesterday that Firefox for Android times out whenever I try to access any website with it. I've only been able to fix it by uninstalling and reinstalling it but after I connect with Firefox Sync it fails to be able to connect to any site and everything times out.

I'm not sure what is causing this, I don't see any add-ons enabled under Firefox but perhaps Firefox Sync is automatically enabling something that is breaking the browser. Any further trouble shooting steps to diagnose would be welcome. I'm having an existential crisis using Chrome.

Update: I can confirm this happens w/o logging into Sync. For some reason Firefox for Android just starts giving The connection has timed out after being installed for a period of time. I'm running Android version 11 and have ample ram and storage space on the phone.

This is a question I found posted a few years back and was hoping there has been an update in the last few year "Why can't I find autofill under settings? I have to manually fill in my information each and every time. I have followed the instructions by going to Settings and then to choose Autofill but there is no Autofill or Lockwise option. Thx"

Hi,

Where can I find up-to-date information about WebExtension development for Firefox for Android?

If I go to pages like https://extensionworkshop.com/documentation/develop/developing-extensions-for-firefox-for-android/ or https://extensionworkshop.com/documentation/develop/differences-between-desktop-and-android-extensions/ I am getting info that is veeery old and with a bunch of warnings.

So my questions are: 1) What sort of environment should I set up to develop and debug extensions? 2) More importantly: where can I find a full documentation of APIs that I can use in my extension in the latest version of FF for Android. 3) Where can I expect to find timely support if I run into problems developing an extension?

Thanks.
