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. This url is an example : https://www.tvanouvelles.ca/2020/05/22/la-pandemie-a-transforme-pour-le-mieux-le-reseau-de-la-sante-selon-le-dr-vadeboncoeur I think that considering data usage on mobile phones it's essential to make this improvement. More, using our phones anywhere can cause medias playback to be annoying for users and/or people around. Thanks

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.

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)

Firefox Android not syncing with hosted sync server

Hello everyone,

I successfully configured my own Firefox sync server on a Ubuntu server with Apache2. (see https://mozilla-services.readthedocs.io/en/latest/howtos/run-sync-1.5.html#howto-run-sync15) It syncs OK between different Firefox client (Linux, Windows 10...) but not with Android version. I configured the identity.sync.tokenserver.uri like on the desktop versions by looking at about:config. I double-verified configuration, but nothing sync. All the checkbox are grayed (see attached images) As there isn't sync log like on desktop versions (about:sync-log), I looked at my Apache log instead, and it seems that something goes wrong. Indeed, when a desktop client starts to sync, there are lines like: 192.xxx.xxx.xxx - - [23/May/2020:18:48:50 +0200] "GET /token/1.0/sync/1.5 HTTP/1.1" 200 3122 "-" "Mozilla/5.0 (X11; Ubuntu; Linux x86_64; rv:76.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/76.0" or 77.xxx.xxx.xxx - - [23/May/2020:06:54:40 +0200] "GET /token/1.0/sync/1.5 HTTP/1.1" 200 3122 "-" "Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 10.0; Win64; x64; rv:76.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/76.0" but when android client starts to sync, it seems that url is incomplete (there isn't /token/1.0/sync/1.5 after GET): 92.xxx.xxx.xxx - - [22/May/2020:21:03:45 +0200] "GET / HTTP/1.1" 200 2579 "-" "Mozilla/5.0 (Android 6.0.1; Mobile; rv:68.0) Gecko/68.0 Firefox/68.0" I suspect this is the problem, but I can't understand why. Your help would be greatly appreciated! Thanks a lot in advance.

Hello,

Whenever I type a few letters, in order to search for something or visit a website, I get an unwanted suggestion (advertising ?) that isn't always from my bookmarks/history.

Suggestions aren't activated in settings > search

Is there a way to get rid of that ?

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.

I upgraded my phone from the Samsung Galaxy S7 to the S10e.

I have my desktop and laptop set up to sync Firefox and both are running the most current versions.

My s7 also was set to sync and was working just fine.

I downloaded the most version of Firefox for Android on to the S10e. I've been successful at connecting the device to my account (it shows in the list of devices).

However, it is unwilling to actually synchronize. When I go to accounts, it says "sync: never" and the categories to be synced are grayed out (bookmarks, history, etc).

I've uninstalled/reinstalled, I've restarted the device, I've clicked sync in the laptop version.

I don't know what else I am missing?

Firefox Browser 68.8.1 on the S10e Firefox 76.0.1 on the Apple MacBook Pro (I don't know the version on my PC desktop, but pretty sure it's up to date)

My Galaxy S10e only displays two or three days' worth of browsing history. I can find no setting either on my phone or in Firefox related to browsing history, although I can see how to delete history. I don't want to delete my history, instead I want access to it. Is my browsing history being deleted or can I just not see it? What do I do?

Hello, I recently installed firefox for android browser and I have the security app "Sophos Intercept X For Mobile" which is named as the default browser in my phone settings(android 10) so that the "web filtering" and "link checker" features can function accordingly so my question is: If I click on a link for instance in an email etc.is there a way to force it to open in firefox instead of the chrome browser? I don't like using chrome at all because they have poor privacy habits. The " web filtering"opens in my firefox browser only when I manually open firefox app browser but if I am clicking a link to open, Sophos Security always opens in the Chrome Browser. Should I disable chrome browser so that these options will open in firefox for android?? Thank you in advance for your time

Hello!

We have an LMS website from the school that we use to get handouts in PDF format. I am having hard time using it on Firefox for Andoid because opening a PDF link always directing Adobe Acrobat app. The PDF mentioned is using session for it to be dowloaded, but since it is opened in another app, the session is invalid resulting to failure to open the PDF. Long-pressing the link only gives share option, open in new tab and open in private tab. I just hope it can be downloaded without redirecting to default apps.

Thank you!

Regards,

Joé
