I am trying to install an addon collection for firefox nightly that I created. In order to do so, I need to enter the User ID of the collection owner (so my User ID) and the name of the collection. I do not know where to find my User ID though. At first I thought this was my username but the User ID consists of just numbers. Can someone tell me where I can find my User ID? Thanks in advance!

I currently have Firefox for Android that I was able to download a couple months ago via fennec (version 68). I do not have nor do I wish to have a Google Account, which is required in order to utilize Google Play. Does anyone have a safe, secure way to get the later versions? The fennec link is still at version 68, and it appears that it will not be changed. Thanks

Hi,

Now when i click the address bar at the top I'm met with a Blank Screen whereas before the update I had my Top Sites "pinned" for quick & easy access. I now have to faff around going into the bookmarks which is pointless when this feature was working perfectly well, why remove it?

Also when i start Firefox fresh i see small icons for the top sites but they're so small the URL/Name doesn't show up so i have no idea which icons lead to which sites. These need to be bigger like post update and put back line they were before.

If it ain't broke don't fix it. This update is a massive fail, please revert ASAP.

So, I have been struggling to figure out how to send all my bookmarks from the Firefox app on android to Firefox Nightly app. I attempted to sync via email, but when I do, it signs me in and sends me to the basic account page with no options to sync. I attempted to sign in via browser, but all that did was sync my tabs from my desktop browser and not the app itself. Is it really that hard to send bookmarks from one app to another, or am I just overcomplicating things?

Hi, I am not really that happy with the latest version of Firefox android and i have used it for years.

I used to really like that my bookmarks were the first thing that showed when i opened Firefox and i never had the issue i am having now either.

Before this new version i would tap on one of my bookmarks and a new refreshed version of that site would always load, i am finding that to make things a a bit quicker and still have some sort of bookmarks on my home screen i have had to add sites either to collections or to what you now call top sites.

I don't know why i can't just have my bookmarks on the front as they are the sites i always go to and the way you have changed it has just made it hard to do things, i feel like i shouldn't have had to setup collections and top sites just to have the same thing?

The main issue is that when i tap on sites from top sites or collections a copy of the last time i visited that site shows and i have to refresh it every time to get the latest content, this is especially a nuisance for news sites such as bbc etc. this didn't happen prior when i used to just select the site i wanted from my bookmarks?

I know tapping on the top right and going to bookmarks isn't exactly hard, but you have made it all 'feel' harder than it was before, it was easy to open multiple sites from bookmarks before as well and now that feels hard to having to long press and then select all the sites i want to open first.

Is there any way the issue regarding sites not opening with the latest contents be fixed and if this isn't an issue as such as far as you see it, could there be at least an option in settings so that people then have to option to load an old cached copy of sites to make loading faster or to load new contents so that the user has the option?

Regards

James

I was trying to download a pdf from my banking app which never had an issue before. I get the download failed in the notifications dropdown men. I don't know if it makes any difference but it's always 2 messages and they recur every day. Not sure what It was that I was trying to download this last time but it's still trying to get the file. (pdf) I just want it to stop. I will use Dolphin or something to get files until it is fixed in Firefox. I delete cache, quit, close all tabs etc. I had already tried the uninstall & reinstall to no avail. Whatever it's still trying to get its a pdf also. Note 9 One UI 2.0. Android 10

On Android, I used to be able to view and save notes in Notes. I know this was scheduled to be discontinued on November 1, but this is October 3 and I can no longer see any of my notes. When I authenticate it says I am sync'ing, but never stops. Did someone pull the plug one month early? My browser is 81.1.2 build 2015767041.
