Hello I am German and not used to write in english. I use Firefox on my Xperia device. Within the last Update I got the new function to collect the tabs. I created several collections and named them. After I put in the tabs and deleted them in the list. So they were only in the collections. Today I wanted to use one Tab out of the collection. But the whole collection Was not any more there, same with 2 Others! Where are these collections and the tabs now? I did not delete them and I need them.

Where are they and how can I use them again?

Kind regards

Mischa

The new Firefox for Android version 79.0.5, why was it released from Beta with only nine extensions, and no way to search for more?

I know there are a lot of people, who never add a extension. But most of us get one or more extensions. I really like searching for them. I install them one at a time, and test them. If they crash Firefox, I go back and let them know, and they fix it. Also when you go to install a extension, it says which versions of Firefox it is compatible with. As this new version has been in beta for about a year there should be a lot more than nine extensions available for me to test. There should be so many by now that it should have its own search page separate from the old Firefox for Android search page. But you let it come out of beta with only nine recommended extensions, and no search page, and no way for me to install the extensions that I like to use, to test if they will work with the new version. So for now I have to wait for how many updates, before I get a update that has a link to a search page for the new Firefox for Android Extensions. Then I can search for my favorite extensions and find out if they say they are compatible with this version, then I have to test them! you guys are really being slow about this!

hello ...

yesterday Firefox updated itself on my tablet ( hung on the charger while I was at work ). In the evening all my open tabs were closed, the bookmarks were gone and FF was set as default browser. Where did my tabs and bookmarks go ? Auto update is / was disabled - default browser is another browser for good reason. FF runs / ran there actually permanently and was only sent into the background. Because the tablet should not be synchronized because of special software, the bookmarks only exist there. Why were they removed during a normal update ?

When trying to download anything the download apparently begins, since a notification appears on the notification panel, but it just does not properly start. It keeps trying but no progress is shown. After a while a failure message replaces the progress notification.

This isn't a network problem, since I've tried it with different connections. There used to be no problem before.

Anybody else experiencing a similar issue?

Hello,

I am using the DataWedge App from Zebra on few devices of ours.

The App is capable to send Actions or Intents to apps by scanning predefined barcodes. I would like to use this feature to control the FireFox App this way. The most important Functions would be.

-Exit all Tabs and reload a fresh one from the Default Startpage settings. (So basically I just need a command for exiting all Tabs or exiting and re-launching FF itself, as the startpage setting already works)

-Load a specific Webpage which is forwarded by the action or intent.

-Please also tell me if and how can I limit the users ability to alter the adress bar - can I lock / grey out the adress bar and setting access somehow?

Thanks so far.

Before upgrading from version 68, as instructed I first removed the master/primary password I'd been using for years. I had thought this was going to be replaced with the phones own biometric fingerprint check.

Now if I open the list of stored passwords via settings option, that is actually the case. But in normal use, when going to a website with a login page, the stored password is just being auto filled in without any kind of security check being asked for. Is that how it's intended to work? If so, in my view it's not very secure at all.

(Yes, I've posted this question once already, but had absolutely no replies. Could some mozzilian PLEASE break off from making all those improvements you keep promising, just to say yes, that's how it's meant to be, we think it's safe, or no, something's not right there. Thanks.)
