I have unwanted URLs autocompleting when I am using the search bar on my Android firefox browser and only my Android firefox browser and despite the many guides showing people how to removed them in the windows version, such as deleting them one at a time by typing part of a URL them pressing the down arrow to highlight the unwanted URL then press delete, but I havn't found anything showing that shows people how to removed unwanted URLs.

Because my unwanted URLs are only showing up on my Andriod firefox browser I can't use the desktop solutions then sync my browser's to get rid of them. Is there a way to get rid of my unwanted URLs that autocomplete in Andriod firefox browser only using the Andriod firefox browser?

Thank you for your help

The Add to home screen button is not showing up in firefox mobile v87.0.0-rc.1 (Build #2015799099).

For the purpouse of this ticket, I'll be using the example a2hs website at https://mdn.github.io/pwa-examples/a2hs/ https://mdn.github.io/pwa-examples/a2hs/.

When opening the website in Chrome mobile, it has the option to Install the PWA as an application (picture 1), but in firefox there is no such option (picture 2). Also, the official guide suggests that there should be a "home icon with a +", which is not the case for me (picture 3).

The firefox application has permission to add homescreen shortcuts in the system (picture 4).

When connecting to debug via USB, I can see the serviceworker is running and the manifest was recognized (picture 5).

I've also tried reinstalling the mobile browser and removing all addons, to no effect.

I'm running Android 10 on a Poco X3 using MIUI 12.0.7.

I don't know else I may be missing.

best, Roberto.

Firefox works poorly on phone with 2GB of memory

I'm running version 87.0.0-rc.1 on my phone (Galaxy J7, android version 9). It has 2GB of memory and 16 GB of storage. I'm running AdGuard adblocker add-on, but same issues without that add-on.

I find that Firefox crashes moderately often when showing videos. I ran this one in full-screen mode, and it crashed before it cycled through 10 times.

https://www.google.com/url?q=https://twitter.com/LilySimpson1312/status/1376500968141979653&sa=D&source=hangouts&ust=1618277028064000&usg=AFQjCNFcfUYRMQ4H67yZQM5zHkrXAu_FXw

Also, I find it highly frustrating that when I tap my Android home button while on a web page, and then go immediately back to Firefox, the web page I was viewing does a full refresh, which often requires me to log in again (private viewing). Example web page that refreshes is:

https://getpocket.com/explore?src=ff_android&cdn=0

It seems to me that these both may be related to internal Firefox memory management issues. I have an old phone running Android 7 that has 2.5GB of memory, and it does not seem to have these issues, and it has far fewer other apps running on it.

I have "sync: addons" enabled in my sync settings (on all relevant devices).

1. Neither uBlock Origin nor its settings appeared on my Android tablet (I can't recall if this worked on my other computer, but I'm 90% sure it did). Does this not work for syncing between mobile and Linux browsers (two Ubuntu machines)?

2. I tried using uBlock Origin's "Enable cloud storage support" (https://github.com/gorhill/uBlock/wiki/Cloud-storage) to move my site whitelist, but it appears to have a different bucket across my Linux and Android devices. I turned it off again after attempting to sync both (Firefox sync) and then get uBlock Origin to read its settings from there.

3. Now that I've migrated my settings manually, I no longer need the cloud sync data from uBlock Origin. Unfortunately, there's no apparent setting in my browser's (either Ubuntu or Android) Account menu to view or edit synced data. Is some amount of unnecessary data now floating there forever, unable to be accessed?

4. If there IS a method to view the contents of sync, how do I find it? Back when I used Chrome, it had a nasty habit of duplicating stuff at the server and occasionally pushing it back to duplicate all my bookmarks. I'd like to see what I've got stored and what (if any) storage quota I'm near. I have an absurd amount of stuff I need to keep synchronized between machines and I'd like warning if I'm using it inefficiently (see: undeletable data from that addon, small though it is) or if there are duplicate entries.

I think it would be more useful to use the collection as your own navigation. This needs to be 1. The ability to adjust the order of collections 2. Can purchase and adjust the order of the internal website of the collection set 3. The ability to rename the names of various websites in the collection. I'm a big fan of using favorites for sites I visit frequently such as YouTube, BBC Home.... I always categorize them to make it easier to find and visit them. I know Firefox can add sites to popular sites, but these sites are out of order, all at the top, and hard to find when using them.

Without any difference in functionality the grid view doesn't make much sense to me. For a long time Firefox was the preferred browser on my phone, mainly because it was the only one that supported manual tab reordering. The fact is that I often have a lot of Web pages open in tabs, and I plan to read them later. With Firefox I could quickly set the priority of reading, moving tabs up or down. Suddenly Mozilla made the tabs unmovable and introduced collections instead. Collections are convenient, but don’t replace manual tab reordering. They are great for routine tasks. But on phones, the vast majority of routine tasks are performed by their own applications, so, collections can only be useful for news and forums. However, even while reading the news, I open several tabs that I often need to rearrange. Thus, Firefox became much less attractive to me. Around the same time, Google’s Chrome made tabs movable and even introduced groups of tabs to make browsing more convenient. I recently realized that I now prefer Chrome. I only open Firefox when I need to listen to music videos in background or access my bookmarks and Firefox accounts. Will Mozilla team ever again return manual change the order of tabs?
