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?

"Don't like PWA, please bring back 'add to homescreen' bookmarking/shortcut option."

I have the exact same problem as the poster, but only in last month or so. "Shortcut" doesn't open in normal browser (what's a PWA?) and page doesn't have a menu/URL bar, so useless. Normal app either gives "Add to Home Screen" or "Install" option, but both result in PWA (I guess), not a shortcut which opens in app. i. e. menu option irrelevant. Not happy (Just been reading a GitHub stream on the subject - deliberate Mozilla choice! Nobody likes PWA, get rid!!!)

When I used to open to the homepage, I would only see my pinned sites, but now my browsing history/most visited sites are added next to my pins. It goes away when I delete my history but there's no way to remove it completely (they just keep coming back when I browse again). The help section for this is also incorrect as there is no slider in the settings anymore to turn it off.

Also: when I go to the homepage I can no longer access my tabs/settings? I have to visit a site for these to pop up in the top right corner.

Configure FireFox for Android to allow port 10080 - "Guest" SSID- will Nightly allow port 10080?

I am hitting a brick wall.

I have a house guest (my housemate's girlfriend) that I want her to only use the Guest SSID on my Linksys Model EA6900 router for her Android phone. The guest SSID uses port 10080.

I have been able to configure FireFox (for PC) on my laptop (as trial) to allow port 10080 as access for Guest SSID using "about:config" and it works. My problem is finding a browser for Android that will allow me to reconfigure it to allow port 10080 for her to use.

I was informed that possibly "FireFox Nightly" may allow this configuration. Attempting to configure FireFox on an Android using "about:config" does not work.

Will FireFox Nightly allow me to configure it to use port 10080 so she can access the guest SSID? If so what is the configuration instructions and where do I download Firefox Nightly.

If I am able to reconfigure FireFox Nightly to allow port 10080 for the guest SSID I assume that she will not have access to any other devices on the main/home SSID which is my main concern.

Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks.

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"
