After the update, Firefox android doesn't respond to button commands (I hold down the home button for the menu as customised in my launcher, which is easier than reaching for the three dots in the upper right corner). This used to work in Firefox and still works anywhere else... I hope this will be fixed.

I don't really see any other real changes, except for fewer options, bottom/top toolbar and ghostery + to top add ons not working....

Somehow Firefox's address bar gets worse and worse every year (I've been using Firefox since 2004). I have it set both on my desktop computer and my Microsoft Surface to just show my bookmarked pages (since I can no longer control what pages show up on the drop down menu otherwise); this used to be fine (other than not being able to bookmark a ton of pages to keep it from being cluttered), but now nothing shows up on my Surface unless I type in the address bar. If I click the bar, nothing happens. It works fine on my desktop. I've messed with different settings trying to figure it out.

I used to use an addon called Oldbar or something to have some control over my address bar like the old days, since Mozilla saw it fit to take that control away from us, but now that addon no longer works. I just want a controlled list of my frequently visited websites. Why bother having a search bar if the address bar STILL tries to do searches? If I wanted to do a search, I would use the search bar. FIX THE ADDRESS BAR.

I tried setting webpage through the method I knew, i.e Go to Menu->Preferences->Home and set the Homepage and new windows settings to the URL you want.

But the bug is that, when I close Firefox and then open it fresh, it starts a blank page and does not load my required homepage. I have to click the home button.

When I already have Ff window open and I start a new window then it loads up my home page but, that redundant, since I could have opened the page I want in the first place.

Is there a solution to this?

Please help. Thank You.

I'd like to help you all at Mozilla in the evenings. I have just one issue with that. I have installed Linux Mint Cinnamon and made my theme dark and downloaded the add-on "Dark Background and Light Text". It is almost 100% wonderful. Redshift is activated too, in order to avoid the blue light, so that I will keep the rhythm of my sleep. I love it.

However. Every time I start a new window in Firefox or click the "+" my whole screen turns WHITE!!! This is VERY annoying. I want it to be dark, of course. This is also an issue if I am going to help you out at Mozilla in the evenings. Dark Background and Light Text does not work in your own forum. Why not integrate this add-on into Firefox?

In my opinion this is a very high priority issue, not only for this reason, but considering that we will all would save energy, batteries and the environment when using AMOLED technology together with Firefox, especially if it is very easy for the users to discover and to activate.

Hi

I want to be able to stop autofill for a single website but keep it on for everything else.

I run a website that means I have to input a lot of data into boxes and Firefox annoyingly wants to auto fill every box meaning the data gets messed up from time to time.

Is there anyway to disable it for single sites?

Thanks

Hi, I am pretty hopeful about the new FF with GeckoView. Using it for a bit it seems pretty good, but there are a few issues (79.1.0-beta.1)

First of all, there have been some layout issues, particularly noticeable on Twitter (I do not use apps where a viable mobile site exists). On Twitter, if I press the "retweet" icon it has a little slider that comes up from the bottom with options to just retweet or retweet with comment. In this version, but not in 68.11.0, that slider jitters up and down a bit. Usually if you scroll up or down slightly it then stabilizes, but even then it can be hard to hit the correct option, as if the visual and the interaction area are not quite aligned.

Aside from that there are some UI/UX issues.

On site where there are apps available (bing, twitter, FB, others), FF puts a blue dot notification badge on the triple dot dropdown menu, if you open it it will have an item to "open in app" or "download app" (depending on if installed or not). I don't mind the menu item being there, even though I almost never want it, but I need a way to turn off that blue dot - all such notification badges are very distracting to me, I either respond to them right away (e.g. messages) or I turn them off totally.

The other big issue is tabs, the newer tab layout wastes far too much space, the one in FF 68 was much better... and though I mostly hate taking UI direction from Chrome, mobile tabs is one rare case of them doing it well. Either of those layouts would be much better than the FF79 tab layout.

Oh, and just to make sure... whatever you do, please don't get rid of the option to put the address on the top, I really need that one. I hate to use a Blink browser, but I *will* switch if the URL bar is forced to the bottom.

Hi!

I recently switched the options listed below to bring some sanity to the way Firefox handles selections in the URL bar.

  • browser.urlbar.clickSelectsAll - true
  • browser.urlbar.doubleClickSelectsAll - false

Shortly after, I noticed that this change messes up the primary selection of the X window system. Now every time I open a new tab the previous tab's URL is copied to the primary selection, therefore overriding the information already there.

This behavior was observed in both the Tor Browser and Firefox ESR.

Is there another option I should've set along with the other two or is this an actual bug and I should open a bug report instead?

Thanks

I have installed 79.0.2 for Android.

  1. 1. Did Not recognized previous settings, like Dark.
  2. 2. Does Not allow to change Settings/customize menu back to old/previous Tab display.

Usually when browsing most websites like ebay, or looking files in OSX or Windows,

allows to view items/files/folders in different ways...

New Firefox has Gallery View, Previous version had Box view, It should allow user to select how to view/display tabs.

  1. 3. And Dark, should be Hollow Dark.

Tabs background look semi dark purple. Should have more Dark versions...

Like CF.lumen App.

Im gonna roll back / downgrade to v78. Sorry, this version is too weird.

I have 2 keyboards setup. Default is Finnish and secondary for English. For some reason firefox has started to default to english and even though I change it from scrolling on spacebar, it defaults back to english every single time i open / close the keyboard (aka. start typing something again)

I am using the default Samsung keyboard (S20). I tried to remove the English keyboard completly and my phone is now running a single keyboard with FIN only. But for some reason firefox still keeps defaulting to EN-US.

This is really annoying. Any ideas on fixing the issue? This is the only app that keeps doing this.

Hello!

     So this might be a very simple thing I've clearly skimmed over in the many times I've searched. Or perhaps I didn't enter the magic words into Google just that special way to get the help I desire...

     I'm playing with Addon and Extentions weighing the pro's and con's of different Addons serving the same relative purpose. It's pretty irritating the method I am currently using, downloading an Addon and then going in, and then disable the one I downloaded to grab the next to avoid bad results that can arise from overlapping Addons working on the same functional area. I wanted to know if there was a means in which I could disable the automatic enabling of Addons when I add them from the default Firefox site?

A week ago I had a smoothly running Thunderbird automatic daily backup facility which worked really well. After installing a new hard drive this week and reinstalling Thunderbird v78, I find that there does not appear to be any backup, import or export add on that will work with this version. Am I mistaken or should I be looking for alternative email software as this facility is important to me with 7 email accounts?

I prefer to read my message in separate windows (as opposed to inline in the main window). So I often end up with quite a few of them hanging around. When I quit Thunderbird, they do not close with the main window.

I looked in options and looked for an add-on. Is the someway to have Thunderbird close all the sub-windows when the main one is closed?
