I'm moving to a new browser that works better for my needs, but I can't export my data using Firefox sync due to me not having access to a computer (my laptop is currently unusable). So, is there any way to export my data quickly without using Firefox sync? I looked this up already, but couldn't find any solutions. Hopefully you guys have a solution?

Thanks! Victoria ♡

I used the Firefox mobile app for a while now and I noticed a high battery usage from it. If 10% of battery gets drained during the night, at least 75% of that is used by Firefox (according to the battery stats of my Pixel 6)

Is it possible to slow down the background sync or maybe dont sync at all during the night if the phone is locked?

Thanks.

Hello there,

I changed my Mozilla password and naturally had to log in again into my account on Android. The whole process worked flawlessly, I can get into my account, the device is shown in the active sessions, everything seems fine. However, when I open the settings on Android, Firefox tells me to log in into my account to sync the data - so I am simultaneously logged in and not logged in. I have restarted Firefox, restarted my phone, un- and reinstalled Firefox, nothing updates the app to finally acknowledge that I am logged in. Is there anything else I can do?

The official instructions say to put a bookmark in a folder click on three dots, click to edit, then click on either a particular folder or some non-existent generic folder button. In my version of android Firefox, neither alternative is possible. If I go from the edit bookmark screen to the preceding general screen (where the folders are listed) and click on a folder, both happens, the bookmark is not transferred to the folder. As for the second, one is told to open the edit function and then click on the folder button. But there is no folder button. How to do it? I'm running android 14 on a Galaxy A14.

My computer was compromised And as a result I had to repair and re install my Microsoft operating system windows 10 pro. That procedure wiped out my Firefox browser and now I have no record. Is there a backup that the browser keeps on a cloud.

going to the battery usage shows that firefox is using a lot of cpu no background refresh, high number of wifi data.

developers of Firefox could add few options for users

1. if there are multiple tabs make all inactive and only the active tab consume data

2. use compression engine so that less data is sent over the wire 3. dont auto play audio or video 4. use new os level power management https://developer.android.com/about/versions/14/behavior-changes-all

My phone is hacked through my formal email,the email is disabled already,the hacker of my email used another email for my recovery which I don't have access to. The hacker has been remotely controlling my phone since August and I haven't had my privacy. The encrypted files on my phone and all the legal made on my phone was done by the hacker because the hacked email is my business email which I puts all my data into. They hacked the email,used the email for frauds and encrypted the email and make it look like I am the one did it. Please safe me from the hacker please. When I signed up new email,the same thing keep happening. It's frustrating and stressful not to have a privacy. I am not working under any organization,I am self employed and I am from Nigeria. Am a priest,a guidance counselor and a business man. I am a family man, married with a kid. Please help me Mozilla. You have been helping me, please continue helping me and help me fully please. I have deleted the encrypted files but it will still comes back but these are the what I saw on my phone settings which I know that is not normal.
