I would like to restrict which extensions can access data / run on which web sites. For instance I would like to restrict all extensions when I am using my bank's website, I would allow add blocking on all sites but I would not allow extensions that access my data on ebay, paypal, gmail, etc. Is there a way to do this per extension and per web site?

I like to open all urls and links in a new tab because then I don't loose the original tab's contents. So I have set browser.tabs.loadBookmarksInTabs to true. Alas if I click on a link in the history library it still replaces the actual tab. I know that I can do a middle click or a right click to get a new tab but I would appreciate if I could set the standard behavior to open a new tab. Is there a setting for this?

I am constantly getting signed out of all my logins simultaneously. When I try to log back in I get error messages saying "sorry you'll have to log in first" or "sorry we couldn't find that, try searching for something else." The only way I can fix it is by restarting my phone. It's driving me insane, I have cookies enabled so this shouldn't be happening. Please help

External links overriding current tabs instead of opening a new tab

Hello,

I've recently switched to Firefox mobile on my Android (Samsung Galaxy 7) because the Samsung browser had a few issues. However, I'm having a few issues with tabs. There seems to be no setting for forcing an external link (from another app) to open in a new tab in Firefox. Instead, it overrides a current tab. Most people keep tabs open for later use, so I can't understand why Firefox would be designed to override that behavior. It's like going back in time before tabbed browsing became commonplace. I've tried editing about: config, but the setting "browser.link.open_external" is already set to 3, which as far as I can tell is supposed to open links in a new tab (why is there no manual/database somewhere with all the current about:config settings listed? How do people memorize what each number means? Why is this not more user-friendly?)

As you might be able to tell, I'm pretty frustrated as this is a very minor thing that should be easy to adjust in normal everyday settings. Everyone opens links in a new tab these days. It's much easier to close an extra tab than it is to find a site you were saving for later that got overridden by clicking a link.

Thanks for any help.

I'm not able to see stocks charts on google search and Google Finance is not opening when I use a Android device with Firefox. I tried with the latest versions of Firefox Focus, Nightly and Firefox standard. If I choose the desktop version, Google Finance works but it is with a very awful layout. On my Android, with Brave and Chrome the Google Finance site also opens. With my Mac, Firefox opens the Google Finance site. Any suggestions? Thanks

tel: link href in HTML "anchor" tag fails when web-page is accessed from local file system via file:// protocol

I'm using Firefox v68.7.0 on Android 9.0 and my Samsung A10e. I've crafted a web-page that includes the following HTML snippet:

<a href="tel:2125551212">Phone Jim</a>

The page is located on the local Android file system, accessed via a URL of the type "file://...". Clicking on the displayed hyperlink fails to load the phone's dialer with the listed number.

This works correctly on Chrome v81.0.4044.117, Edge v45.03.2.4955, and Opera v57.2.2830.52651 on the same Android phone.

Thanks in advance for any clarity you can provide.

Version: 68.8.0 Firefox for Android Release

May 5, 2020

Firefox account is verified and syncs on Linux (Debian, firefox esr). On android (actually android compat on sailfishos) the account can be signed into but is always flagged as requiring verification. Have purged app data to no avail. Tapping the box does not send a verification email. Not sure what else to try.

Greetings and thank you for your time. I am so tired of every update changing how Firefox Android handles video and audio file types ~ MIMEs. I want a permanent setting to propting us , to ask us what I want to do when we click on a video or audio link. Maybe everyone else just wants to play it. But I don't and I'm sure I'm not alone. -_-

It would be wonderful if Firefox Android would have the same answers as Firefox for desktop specifically: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/change-firefox-behavior-when-open-file#w_download-actions

Maybe I'm not searching correctly but I spent hours searching for a solution before posting this question. Also for previous FFA versions this question is always being asked after every update! WHEN will we as a community stop disabling the ability to control what we do with audio and video links! -_-

Please do not suggest a third-party plugin when this is an innate browser function!

Thank you for your time and consideration.

It's good to have those built-in shortcuts, but it's stupid you can't modify them. When I use this website I can't input the division sign by pressing / on the keypad because it's the shortcut for Quick Find. I guess this is because the place to input is not a normal text box like in WolframAlpha , but part of the whole webpage(?). Add the function to customise shortcuts is much easier than let Firefox recognise and deal with this situation, I think. In fact, most software supports customising shortcuts, so I'm surprised to find there's no way for Firefox to do that.
