CustomTabs don't redirect to app

I'm developing an android app that uses the OAuth2.0 auth code flow to authenticate users. The app launches a CustomTab which in turn, responds with a redirect to the app's redirect scheme. Chrome redirects immediately, closing the CustomTab. Firefox does nothing regardless of the state of the "Open in app" setting.

In order to reproduce this: 1. Create an android app with a redirect scheme 2. Create a webserver that simply redirects to that scheme 3. From the app, open a CustomTab to the webserver 4. Observe the CustomTab not redirect

For a more concrete example, I can reliably reproduce using the sample app from https://github.com/kalinjul/kotlin-multiplatform-oidc and an [Authentik](https://goauthentik.io/) server but I'm sure something like Auth0 would have the same problem.

I want my context menu in Firefox for Android to be as clean as possible. But there are annoying actions in it: Search in Edge and "Create Note" that runs Microsoft Edge and Microsoft OneDrive respectively. I need these apps from time to time so I don't want to uninstall them. Is there a way to turn off this integration between Firefox and Microsoft-related apps?

Thanks.

Hello...my question is if I should go ahead and cancel my account? Ive been hacked and they are even changing my settings - as well as in my add ons. They've even added some that I did not choose. They are adding many site addresses and marking them as trusted when they shouldn't be. I even am not able/allowed to clickk on certain boxes...likke when I try to add a proxy. I think they operate in real time. I just think it mighht be best to cancel for my own security. I don't know what they are capable of doing.

I didn't even create my account. But it had my email addresses. So I changed the password immediately. I know it is some sort of organization because I always receive error messages saying "Access Denied", "Contact your Administrator" or "Contact your IT Department."

Are you at all able to possibly help me? I do plan to file a police report, but it would be very advantageous to me if I could offer them more information and hopefully press charges because this has been going on since I moved to the Netherlands 7 years ago. And no antivirus/antimalware works. Even repairs, factory resets and buying new phones haven't helped me either. As you know, there are very strict privacy laws here.

Ok, thank you very much for your time and any assistance or advice.

I am trying to add some screenshots (where it says to add images) and it won't even allow me to do that.

When I click on the scan feature next to the FireFox's search box, FireFox only shows a black screen. Same issue exists when I try to sign in to my FireFox account using the QR code scanner option. My camera outside FireFox works fine.

Sync to Android phone broken

I've had no issues with Firefox Sync on desktop but frequent issues on Android.

I've reported issues previously here: https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1879003

Yesterday, it failed in a different way, announcing that I needed to sign into Sync. I've tried a dozen times yesterday and today using both QR scan and email confirmation. All fail in various ways. For example:

  • After scanning QR code: "500 Error Oh dear, something went wrong there"
  • After scanning QR code: "Pairing not successful. Error while creating the pairing channel"
  • After scanning QR code and approving on mobile device and desktop, desktop says success, but phone stays on "Approval now required from your other device" Interestingly this page isn't open in the normal browser. If I click the three dot menu, it says "POWERED BY FIREFOX, Open in Firefox"
  • After going through all the steps and it saying "You're signed into Firefox," yet when I go to share a tab, it asked me to sign in.

Any tips on getting Firefox Sync to work? I don't see any troubleshooting sections in the online help articles.

I have installed Firefox on both my tablet and Phone (Android 13 and 14). I cannot get a QR code on my desktop when I follow the link but I did get a QR code from another source but I was required to give a code on my Microsoft Authenticator but none appeared. I have set up two-stage authentication but am not receiving the required codes. Can you help ?

Thank you

About:config is not available and my phone on vpn at ipleak.net says webrtc detection shows 10.41.0.162 IANA private or special address and 2001:db8:123:10a0 IANA private or special address.

Aren't they internal LAN ip's? How can they be seen even without a VPN when I have NAT.

Hey, Can't seem to find the master password feature on android that's on the desktop version. Saw a previous thread from a year ago that implied that it was cause the unlocking of the phone was enough, but that didn't make sense to me, because you have to unlock a computer as well?

I just worry that if my phone gets hacked, they would just be able to easily pull the firefox passwords, and I wouldn't mind that extra layer of protection. Any chance I missed the setting or of this getting added? Or is this something I shouldn't worry about due to the way the data is secured?

Anyway, thank you for any perspectives in advance!

The Salt Lake Tribune apparently uses tinypass.com as part of its reader access to their e-edition. This morning the access was not functioning. Tribune staff says one "must use Chrome or Google" not Firefox. This is from my Samsung phone. I'll have to check whether the Win10 desktop has the problem.

Regular usage of Firefox results in crashes; usually have no more than 4 tabs on, but also crashes even with only one tab on. Using other mobile browsers (Brave, Chrome) with the same or even more level of usage does not result in crashes, leading me to believe the problem is with Firefox.

This problem was already asked previously (https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1431267) but has been archived without a solution that worked for me.
