I want to make this my default Browser in my phone, I have a Samsung S20 but it's kind of impossible. Why can't I get Firefox to open a link from a Facebook page in the Facebook app, or an Instagram, Amazon, eBay one? I have the apps installed for a reason. I want to press a Google link and get the browser to open the related app.

Is there a way to change default navigation from a Firefox Google search? Searching in browser is more reliable than searching with Google maps or Waze, but when you tap the navigate button it prompts me to download a different navigation app that I don't want. Is there any way to change this?

Like in Firefox Focus, trying to access local storage using `/sdcard` is denied or returns an error, however on the Firefox common, accessing /sdccard storage is pretty simple. Although that's pretty helpful in certain cases, however I would like that to manually disable. Are there any ways to do so, such that putting in /sdcard in the address bar returns a N/A result. (:

Hello, I've tried Adobe Acrobat and lots of other pdf-viewers, all the same: I cannot open or download any pdf from a website... When trying to open the pdf an error-message occurs (I try to translate from German): "file could not be downloaded. Save the file in your local storage/memory and try to open it afterwards". (and actually I have no clue how to save or download it when instantly after pressing/clicking this error message occurs^^ (even if I press a long time on the pdf, no menu appears offering a download (just one to save the website as a pdf))

Opening and saving pdfs works fine from other apps or from mail-accounts, and - I just tried it for the first time - as well from the chrome-browser (I was asked then if I'd like to use adobe or any other pdf-reader to open)

As I'd like to stick with Firefox and don't want to change to any other browser, has anyone a solution or hint? Thanks and Regards, Sholto

Using: Android 10, Firefox 68.11.0 and a Sony Xperia XZ2 compact

Created an account. Time has passed, the codes are lost. Created a new one again to another mail. I decided to point the additional mail to the same mail. Which is on the old account. Does not work. How do I delete my old account? How do I contact support? I can confirm the mail. Of course, you can create more mail, but why if I have. Perhaps you can change?

Hi everybody,

I've upgraded to firefox 79.0 last night. The first time I started the browser it begins to import my old data, but then it crashes and cause my phone to restart (Sony xperia z1c, ACIP 14.0, Android 9). After that, the phone starts to loop restarting every 2-3 minutes. It is clear to me that it is an underground process of firefox that it is causing that, because after having uninstalled firefox and replace it with an older version from my backup (68) everything is working fine again.

I've also tried to fresh install Firefox, by deleting it first and then installing it, but the same problem has happened.

Any idea how to solve this?

Many thanks!
