Please reinstate media blocking

Woke up this morning and my stupid phone had updated to the new, awful, Firefox on Android: ‎ 119.0 (Build #2015980915), 367d60e851+ GV: 119.0-20231019122658 AS: 119.0 … (read more)

Woke up this morning and my stupid phone had updated to the new, awful, Firefox on Android: ‎ 119.0 (Build #2015980915), 367d60e851+ GV: 119.0-20231019122658 AS: 119.0


To my horror I was seeing images on webpages, totally ruining my browsing experience. The main reason I use firefox on Android is because it allows me to turn off media. I don't want to see any of that, almost always entirely irrelevant, distraction. Now I'm going to have to use Samsung internet and continually click reader mode. This is NOT about ad blocking, it is not about saving data. It is about drastically improving the browsing experience. Please reinstate blocking of all images and videos.

I need to change the download folder from my phone intern memory to my SD card, but I don't see the option to do it, I've seen forum post of people saying It can be done by entering about:config in the browser, but that doesn't work.

I have used Firefox on many systems - MacOS, Linux, Winblows and mainly Android Cellphone.

"about:config" on a Cellphone has never worked, never worked consistently, or mainly been confused with Desktop Firefox :P

Hello?!? The future is mobile not stationary desktops  :P But I digress. Please dont misunderstand me - I love FF - but when I want "about:config" on A Cellphone - I WANT IT to actually work on a freaking cellphone  :P

Is the software config too much for International Mozilla to understand? Or has Mozilla had way to much input from everyone on the planet thus watering down an otherwise great browser?

Kind of rhetorical - I know it will never be fixed in favor of locking in a dieing desktop setup  :P

On desktop we can click the padlock to view the actual SSL certificate but on Mobile this does not work.

Viewing the SSL certificate is a very important and useful ability and should be supported the same way as viewing a web page's HTML source or viewing an email message's headers.

I really like what Mozilla tries to do, and atm I'm working on becoming a Firefox user. I'm trying to use services from the big five as little as possible. Especially Meta and Google, but since I'm trying to use Apple services less as well, I'm trying to move from Safari to Firefox. However, the mobile experience has really let me down.

I had been trying the Orion browser for a while, but since it felt a bit unfinished (it's in beta after all), I thought maybe a major browser like Firefox would give me a more polished experience. And while the desktop (MacOS) app is OK, the iPhone and iPad experience is very poor.

Is there anything I can do to improve it?

My main problem is around tabs, and that I can't seem to be able to change the fact that almost every click opens the page in a new tab - BUT NOT ALWAYS. It's really inconsistent. This is also made worse by the fact that Firefox is late to the party when it comes to easy, swipeable, tab switching. On iPad it's made worse by the fact that it doesn't really support trackpads. If you scroll up and down with a trackpad, the menu bar on the top (and all the tabs) are hidden, even if you scroll up again! Are there any options I'm missing?

Can anyone help me make the experience better? Any (at least) semi-happy iOS/iPadOS users out there? This is really poor from Firefox, IMO. And this isn't actually Apple's fault, as this has nothing to do with the restrictions they put browsers on their platforms.

Around 3 years ago, I made a request to bring back Firefoxs amazing image toggling feature to allow users to toggle on and off images while browsing the web.

https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1303546#answer-1348088

Some may think the only purpose of this feature is to save data and that is a good reason. But it has other uses as well. The internet can be triggering, it can be overstimulating. A power user can take control of that, and honestly, after my thread from 3 years ago was closed, the last word was, "Due to your request, The Team has decided to add this permissions (images, web fonts, javascript) somewhere around the end of this year."

It was even put on github as an issue to work on. https://github.com/mozilla-mobile/fenix/issues/11460

But 3 years later, here we are. Still no Images selection in the Permissions menu.

I'm back asking for it again. I'm tired of using Opera mobile as the only mobile browser that has this feature. I want to come back to Firefox. And if someone won't do it, please point me in the direction for how I myself can alter this open source software so that I can add this old feature back.

What is Mozilla waiting for to improve their browser for iOS? By them allowing add-ons to work on iOS, they could gain significantly more market share, which they desperately need.

And I know extensions on iOS is possible because there’s a new browser that’s come out that allows you to install Firefox and Chrome extensions. Some are buggy, but it still works. It’s called Orion browser.

If Mozilla did it, they could probably come out with a better version.

Hello! I suggest the option in the settings that enables the display of websites in desktop mode by default. This option can be found in Microsoft Edge for Android and iOS as well as in Brave Browser for Android and iOS. When enabled in the settings, the browser will always display websites in full (desktop) mode.
