Hello,

What can I do about the new privacy agreement between Facebook and WhatsApp users in Europe? Are there viable ways not to be tracked by both. I want to use both, but I do not want to be a glass customer?

Greetings,

Hi, since migrating to FF daylight, the tabs I specifically want to display under their Desktop version always reset to mobile version. Prior to updating FF, the option would remain specific to each tab and unchanged regardless of closing the app or just switching tab. Now it always resets by default to Desktop version. This is very annoying.

I have a Samsung Note10 Lite. I have a Swedish layout and English layout on the keyboard. Swiping on the spacebar switches language. I mainly use Swedish. Each time I start Firefox, the layout goes to English. I have set Firefox to Swedish, but the keyboard still switches to English all the time. Really annoying an causing typing errors. No other app on my phone does that.

Hello

I thought it was a phone or keyboard issue in my phone and it might be.

But I have noticed that in Firefox for Android it auto-capitalises password fields. This is not a good feature. I continually enter passwords wrong as a result. It may happen in other apps but I've noticed it is not the case in all of them. And I have new devices that have the same problem. Has anyone an idea of how to turn it off please?

Hi,

When I am sending a tab from my Android phone to my PC it all works fine (the tab shows up in a second), but when I send the tab from the PC to my Android device the tab won't show up until I go to Firefox settings-> Firefox account on my android and I click on sync now (even though sync is enabled all the time).

Is there a way to make the Android auto sync all the time without me clicking it?

I never understood why FF eliminated the “open with” option within Android. So as a work around I bookmarked my files by navigating to “file:///storage/emulated/0/Download/”. But now you can no longer navigate to “file:///storage/emulated/0/Download/”, it appears blank. My bookmarked files at these locations return a blank screen as well. Why does FF continue to make it more difficult to open local storage? How can I bookmark an HTML file saved on local storage?

Send Tab to Device from Desktop (v85.0) to Firefox for Android (v84.1.4) tab notification does not appear on mobile

Sending tabs from Firefox desktop (version 85.0, Windows 10) do not arrive to Firefox for Android (version 84.1.4) - phone does not show notification about new tab.

What I do On desktop: Right click on tab > Send Tab to Device > Firefox on <device>. Next I see blue notification on desktop saying "Sent!"

Problem After I send from desktop I do not see notification on mobile device with new tab arriving. Notification simply never arrives.

Workaround On mobile device: (three dots menu) > Settings > Accounts (My Account) > Sync now. All the tabs that I sent previously will arrive now. I have to do this every time I send tabs from desktop.


What I have tried

  • Restart Firefox for Android
  • Disconnect and connect mobile device to account.
  • Check for updates

Are there some additional troubleshooting steps that I can do, e.g. collect logs?

Other notes

  • This has been happening for a while now, at least couple of months and I am unable to pinpoint when it started.
  • Sending tab from Firefox for Android to Desktop works instantly.
  • Bookmarks, Synced tabs and History always sync as expected.
  • When I am doing the workaround, in Account settings, below "Sync now" text it always says: "Last synced: 0 minutes ago".
