I'm a physical keyboard user for Android and find it impossible to use Firefox, there doesn't seem to be any documentation on simple keyboard shortcuts for access the addressbar or menubar, getting to search in the page, or access fine-grained tools for navigation like there is on the desktop version.

Where are these features documented? The Android Talkback feature doesn't cut it for me.

Hi there

On some sites I use, their aps are next to useless as are their mobile sites. I want to be able to access the REAL websites but when I change the URL (e.g. change m.twitch.tv to just twitch.tv) it simply redirects to the mobile site again. How can I force it to show me the full web page instead please ?

Many thanks

Zoe

Hi,

I'm using Linux and the distrib has inclueded ff 91.12. It has remote debugging in it. I would like to try it but I see I have to install this version of android ff to my device to work.

Where can I found safe/virus free older versions?

I have android-sdk/android studio installed to Linux and works well. Can I download ff android source somewhere or isn't it open source?

Hi,

My apps are automatically updating so I cannot tell what triggered these crashes. But Firefox now crashes continuously, as soon as I start the app.

I am running an up to date iOS 15.6 on iPhone XS.

It is impossible to use Firefox on my iPhone, not even for one second.

I hope you can fix this.

Hello,

Today I wanted to switch from Chrome to Firefox(103.2.0) on my mobile and after logging in everything seemed fine until I had to login into an account. I discovered that none of my saved logins have been synchronised. On desktop I use Firefox(104.0)

  • I do not use a master password
  • I tried to synch manually through settings
  • The browsers across all platforms are up to date

How can I synch my content through my Firefox account?

Thanks.

On any site I have tried (including this one right now) the Enter button of my digital keyboard does nothing. I am on a Kindle Fire HD 8 (7th generation). The Enter button works just fine in other apps, and worked in the browser apps I used before Firefox. I just checked and it's still working in the native Silk browser.

Hi. I downloaded the latest issue of Firefox (104.0.1) to my mobile phone and since then I have been unable to connect to the internet via 4/5G - but it is OK using wifi. This is highly annoying when I need to connect whilst out and about. Weirdly, the calculator on the phone and Samsung Notes have also disappeared and I am unable to download from the Play Store! All the usual things like rebooting, cleaning caches etc do not work. Is it possible to roll back to an earlier version? Any ideas would be useful, given the lack of phone contact available, thanks

I originally was able to create the home page shortcut to Piped with Chrome, but the shortcut launched Chrome, even though Firefox is my default browser?

Piped [https://piped.kavin.rocks/https://pip.../|Piped]

So I deleted the shortcut. Now, Chrome no longer even offers me the option to "Add to Home Screen" from the Piped page, but it still does for other sites. Within Chrome, It now offers me the option to open the page in Firefox, even if I make Chrome the default browser.

How can I get a shortcut to Piped on my home page that will open in Firefox?
