Hello, on Firefox Desktop you can create custom password fields, putting the manual website, username and password; I use this possibility to store personal data, like pins and other codes. Why on Android there isn't the possibility? I see there is on Lockwise, but password stored there remain on Lockwise, they aren't synced with Firefox ecosystem, adding that I find Lockwise useless, as it never syncs new Firefox passwords, losing its primary use. Thank you, waiting for your answers.

as said on title, whenever the Full-screen browsing is enabled, the viewport will jump up and down. This is: when the user scolls down the page (moving away from the top of the website), the Firefox toolbar (URL bar + menu dots) hides upwards, and the viewport makes a sudden downward jump of the same length of the toolbar´s height. At this time you can continue to scroll normally, raise your finger, interact with something else, zoom in or out, etc, and scroll more as far as you go in that direction. Whenever you scroll in the opposite direction, lets say upwards (so going back to the top of the website), the firefox toolbar scrolls down visible again, but as soon you lift the finger, the screen will jump back again in the opposite direction... so its the same bad behavior but with the reciprocate effect... i attached a screen record to point this up. finger taps are shown on the screen. the page in this case is just a picture from facebook viewed in full size mode, but this bug can shown up with every page available. in the case shown the page was zoomed in and out to show that the behavior is present regardless of zoom state or horizontal scroll. I hope the devs could find and solve this minor bug, love so much this proyect!!

HI all. Was hoping to find/enable "go to website" feature while taking screenshots in firefox. For those who are not familiar when you take a screenshot while being on the web page you usually have little "go to website link" while viewing your screenshot and if you click on the link/ icon your screenshot will take you directly to the website this screen was taken at.

Attaching pics of the feature below.Please advise if you know what could cause that and how to enable "go to website" feature on screenshots?

Ever since update 86.1.1 any time I try to enter anything into the address bar it instantly freezes until the menu pops up saying the app is unresponsive until I have to force close it.

I have tried clearing the cache on my phone and for Firefox. I have also uninstalled the app, restarted my phone, then reinstalled. Even with a fresh install the problem still occurs.

On a regular basis (few times per week) when trying to enter a comment on a YouTube video, or enter something in the search, the keyboard refuses to appear. Only solution seems to be to restart Firefox completely. Attached image shows a search attempt, where the text cursor is in the field, but no keyboard is appearing. All other sites seem to be fine.

How to collapse bookmarks folders on Android ?

Hello all,

I have my bookmarks synced between android and desktop. On my desktop, I have literally hundreds of folders and subfolders.

When i'm on Android, and want to save a bookmark in one of my folders, the list of all folders and subfolders show up expanded (uncollapsed).

When they are expanded, it is almost impossible to find the folder i need. I have to scroll down dozens of "pages" of folders and subfolders everytime I simply want to bookmark a page in the right folder.

Please see the image attached. This is only a tiny portion of the list. It goes on like that for dozens of pages.

Is there any solution for that ?

The simple solution would be that Firefox collapses all the folders by default, and when we click on one it expands. Basically what is done on most systems of folder/subfolders.

Kind regards,

Adrien

Good day! Dear Sirs, How I can stop downloading of the file from the opened page? I have started to download the pdf file from opened page of a site. I have confirmed the download by Mozilla Firefox. The downloading has begun and has reached the 99% of the volume according to the announcement of my phone and the push-notification. I use Android. But after that the volume of downloading remains on the same level of 99% of the file. The push-notification/ announcement of my android phone shows that downloading continues and doesn't finish! What does it mean? What is the problem? And what can I do or should I do in order to stop the process of downloading? Please, help me! Thanks in advance! Kindest regards! Alexander

I have a Samsung Galaxy Tab A7 ( SM-T505), new 2020 with Android 10.

This is as follows ( N.B this is quite annoying/frustrating):

1. If I choose other language than the factory recomended in wich country you bought the device in. For an ex If you are asked to choose Swedish ( for tablet bought in Sweden), but If you choose English either UK or US the device thinks that you are in either UK or US. According to the search results wich will guides you to sites from this countries.

2. That If you choose other language than the factory recomended,and add multiple languages Firefox gets nuts. Besides that Firefox constantly crashes( will get back to startmenu), closes down tabs. But whats most annoying ( bug or lack of compatiblility) is that the device constantly will aut change my input language to the next upcoming in the list. As I would describe it that the layout ( input language) will be changed to for an ex English layout insted of Swedish. But at the same time If I will delete all of the existig input languages,and just keep my native keyboard layout it works fine.

3. That many sites constantly crashes,and that I can't add myself to many social media sites( not such as FB,Twitter. Since I don't have any account at this platforms). I will also get error messages when a site has capture codes. Wich will result that I can't add myself there. 4. If I ask for Desktop version Firefox thinks that I'm using Linux. Note that all sites will work fine,but better than the standard mobile ver. 5. That Firefox at many Tablets from Samsung ( but since I only have exp with Samsung devices) have poor compatiblity to many webmail services. I myself know that protonmail works badly. Since non of the functions that I have at a regular Pc works. It's both when I will open an existing mail, but at the same time when I will add a new mail it's where my issues are most. What will hapend is that nearly the whole screen will be covered with the keyboard,and that neither of the basic functions ( such as formating text) will work.

5. I' ve also noticed that the keyboard have a bad respons, and that the device interpetate my sweep gesters over the screen that I will flip scren mode ( to a vertical instead of horisontal mode). But at the same time if I lock my screen to a horisontal mode it works better.

6. As an average Firefox ( to my device) have a bad compatiblity to many sites. But at the same time Firefox for a regular PC( either Win 7,8,10) works better.

7. That Firefox installed at my device have non of the other functions that I have for my regular Pc is compatible( that I can change functions such as cookies etc)

8. Every time when I update to a newer ver firefox aut deletes all of my bookmarks ( saved online websites). Why isn't it possibel to have an option to save them ( manualy delete),or save them to a memorycard or different folder.

9. Why isn't it possibel as it was in previous ver to just download a specific lang ver. For an ex English (UK or US). Since I know that the most stabel versions are English ( in particular UK). My point is that why should Firefox follow the device set language. For myself I'm more used to english computer softwares rather than Swedish. Why isn't is possible to have an option to an advanced ( custom install).
