What is the most recent version of Firefox for Android on Google Play Store?

Hello everyone!

I have been stuck on Firefox version 82.1.3 on Android since 2020-11-09. Firefox 83 was released some time ago and Firefox 84 got released a couple of days ago. No matter how many restarts or refreshes I do of Google Play, the most current version shown is 82.1.3.

- Does anyone know what's going on? Is this as it should be? - If this is as it should be, why does Mozilla keep announcing new versions without informing the users that version releases on Android are lagging?

Thanks!

Hello!

I'm currently using Firefox nightly for Android, simply for the reason of installing custom add-ons, rather than having to choose from the given list.

I've followed this guide so far: [https://www.ghacks.net/2020/10/01/you-can-now-install-any-add-on-in-fi...]

And I've added the 3 extensions I need at, by signing in with this very Firefox account: [https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/fire.../collections/]

My problem is when I attempt to add a custom Add-on collection, it asks me: Collection owner (User ID) What is my User ID? How do I add my custom collection so I can use my own add-ons? Apologies in advance if this is a silly question and I'm missing something obvious.

I have three android devices and since u upgraded to the current version it has now become unuseable. I have tried to go backwards to an apk but sadly the software upgrades it daily. I have had firefox since it started and am now sorry to say that I have had to delete it off all my mobiles. The only useable version is the ios on my apple phone...that is still the same but if that manages to get upgraded then that will go. I have worked in IT for 30 years and this is the biggest blunder I have seen in a long time.

I use Firefox on my Samsung Galaxy Tab S2. It works fine but Firefox on my wife's identical Tab S2 will not let her post photos to her Facebook group page. She clicks on posting a photo, the expected page appears but, when you click the photo icon, instead of going to documents nothing happens. Using the Samsung Internet browser it works fine so I believe there is a corruption within her Firefox. My solution is therefore to uninstall Firefox then reinstall it which I can do. However, I do not want my wife to start with a blank slate Firefox. How do I reinstall it keeping all the bookmarks, etc? Of course, if there is a better way to address the core issue of not being able to post photos on Facebook I'd be happy to hear it.

Firefox only displays a blank web page

Hello,

my Firefox on Android running on Xiaomi Redmi Note 3 suddenly stopped working after five years. It does not display the content of the web page even though it loads it completely. I can see only blank page. I concluded that the website is fully loaded because on a “blank” page I can tap on any link that is then loaded, but the website still ends up being completely blank.

I tried the following: - clean firefox cahche - reinstall firefox - reboot the phone several times - install other versions of Firefox (nightly, firefox for Android Beta, Quantum)

Nothing helped.

Chrome browser is running normally.

I haven't changed anything from the settings on my mobile phone, nor have I added any new apps. I've had a problem for the last week since, I guess, since the last update was released.

I'm in a bad situation because Firefox is my favorite browser that I use on five devices connected to the cloud.

P.S.

By searching this forum I found that it was some kind of bug in Firefox, but that was more than two years ago and the problem was marked as fixed.

Please help and advice.

Hello everybody,

I hope you're doing well in theses days, and your health is good ! A few months ago, I installed with success my own Firefox sync server. It is working like a charm with both desktop Windows and Linux version, but it doesn't work with Android version. I discovered that the client try to reach a bad URL (see my preceding post: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1288028). Moreover, with the last version, we can't modify anymore the identity.sync.tokenserver.uri In the Nightly version, this parameter isn't present. Have we any chance to use Firefox android version with a custom sync server ? Thanks a lot in advance for your help.

Hello,

at first I want to thank you to help me and excuse my English because I am not a native.

My problem is that I can press the "sync now" button in Firefox but nothing happens and it should do the sync automatically. Should. Before I started todays sync the last was on the 17th of December. And to start the sync I have to manually close the Firefox via the Android-App-Info, disable my VPN (Blokada) and then maybe it works. But just the first time I use it. Later on, even with no Blokada (disabled), I would have to close FF again to make the sync work.

My Phone is a Xiaomi Mi 10 Lite 5G and I am located in Germany. It is up to date and runs Android 10.

Firefox is the latest out of the Play Store.

Beforehand I used a galaxy S5, and had no such problems, I also had the Account in the settings of the phone. The Xiaomi does not let me add a explicit Firefox-Account, which also could be a problem, but I didn't find a solution yet (google, reddit and so on, this is why I am asking here).

Thank you very much and stay safe & healthy, Philipp

Websites are fine, but if I open up the address/search bar firefox instantly begins to lag and there is a serious (5 seconds or so) delay between typing and the text appearing.

I have tried disabling search features (search from history, search bookmarks), I have tried disabling add-ons, and I have tried clearing the app cache

Weirdly enough, this problem persists on Firefox Nightly, which I had never downloaded before just now.

Please help.
