This happens when I'm on Firefox on Windows and send a tab to my Android device.

Sent tab does not come through as a notification until I manually refresh (from history/synced devices and pull down to refresh) in the Android app.

Is there anything I can do to have the sent tab to come through without refreshing the sync?

Love this feature. Thank you.

Is there a way to sort bookmarks or require the newest bookmark to be at the top of the list? I keep adding bookmarks and the program puts the newest ones in the middle of the list somewhere. I can't figure out how to stop it from putting them in some random order. (Firefox for Android)

When I click on a link that is a pdf file in firefox, it won't open. A Adobe begins to open but then I get an error message. It says it cannot be downloaded, try saving to local storage and retry. However, I am clicking on the pages option to save the pdf already. I haven't located anything in the menu or settings to fix this issue.

Look, all I wanted to do was change my primary email address to my gmail account, when I moved. This should have taken what?, two-three minutes!

It's been over a month fighting with the blasted thing, so I don't remember everything I originally did.

But at the time, I successfully changed the email on my cell phone & laptop. But 'something' hiccupped & went wrong, & it was not changed on my tablet.

Firefox eventually locked me out of my account after repeated attempts to log in. I recall asking for the six digit verification code, only to be told when I entered it, that it was incorrect, so got another, and another, repeatedly, each time being told the code was incorrect! Something like nine-ten times, I believe. I've literally spent hours & days at this, looking for a solution, to no avail.

When I tried to log into sync on the tablet today, Memorial Day, my old email address STILL shows up, and the snarkty thing just tells me I need to use my primary email address, & won't let me in. when I look at my accounts settings on another device, everything looks hunky dory! Yet my tablet still tells me, every day, that it hasn't been synced for "X" many days. Argh!

Worse, in order to post this request for help, on the same tablet, Firefox asked me to log in, DID show my primary email address, and logged me right on in, OPEN SESAME!

I was so annoyed & seriously ticked at this, it just felt like the Firefox program had just extended a virtual, certain single digit, in my general direction! If I can"t get this fixed soon, I'm going to remove sync, if I have pull it out by the roots!

H-E-L-P !!!

Since updating to latest Android, Firefox requires me to select quit from the menu rather than just using the Android close all option as normal. If I don't do that, I can't use Firefox again until I do it that way. In short, it doesn't work the way it used to or anything at all like other Android apps.

Can someone fix that, please?

Здравствуйте. Я вот недавно с Яндекс Браузера решил перейти на ваш браузер и столкнулся с проблемой. Я вот читаю мангу часто и меня мягко говоря раздражает что когда я переключаюсь на следующую страницу то сайт обновляется. На Яндекс Браузер сайт не обновляется а картинки прогружаются. Все дополнения попробовал отключить и все равно. На FireFox Preview, FireFox Focus такая же проблема. Можете помочь? https://youtu.be/Uq62cnX5eps - видео с примером

Firefox for Android is constantly messing up cookies and signing me out of all my accounts.

I'm not using an ad blocker.

I am not using the Do Not Track feature.

I'm using Firefox from one location, my home.

And still, I have to sign back into my accounts over and over and over each hour.

Many websites don't work at all. They'll complain that cookies are unavailable. They'll 500 and infinite redirect and land on blank pages.

What's wrong with my Firefox on Android 10???

Hi.

I've tried searching for the answer to this problem for hours but everything's telling me how to make Firefox download things automatically but I want to stop it doing that.

I've always had my 'phone (Samsung S9+) set to ask me every time how I want to open files when I tap on them. However, this afternoon, when I tapped on a pdf link and it popped up to ask if I wanted to download the document or simply view it (in Google Viewer, I think it was), download was already highlighted and I accidentally (and very stupidly) tapped 'Always'.

Now, every time I tap on a pdf link in Firefox, my 'phone is automatically downloading the file, instead of offering me the option to simply view it without downloading it, which is what I want to do.

I've tried deleting cache files, uninstalling and reinstalling Acrobat Reader (in case it forced something to give me options again) and if I was using the Windows version of Firefox, the solution appears to be no more than a couple of clicks away. However, that doesn't seem to be the case in Firefox on my Android 'phone!

Please could someone help because I don't want to waste any more of my life searching for the solution to a single errant finger tap!

Hi, I don't want videos and sounds to start playing automatically on my Android phone when I open any webpages. I enabled the Firefox parameter to block videos from playing, but it doesn't work.

More, using our phones anywhere can cause medias playback to be annoying for users and/or people around. Thanks
