Hello,

This problem exists for quite some time now. Sometimes when I download a PDF file, i cannot open it in Adobe acrobat via Firefox download "open". When i tap on "open" Firefox says there is no PDF viewer installed or it cant open the file. Although the viewer is installed and sometimes it works as it should. But some PDF files cant be opened. When I access them through my file manager i can open them without any problem.

Firefox Daylight on an up to date Samsung S10e. But same problem on Xiaomi Mi9 SE or Galaxy Tab S6 lite.

85.1.3 (Build #2015792283) AC: 70.0.20, d282b98ef GV: 85.0.2-20210208133944 AS: 67.2.0

Firefox for Mobile needs to sync Collections too.

My wife typically trusts me to make the tech decisions in my household, and is fine with using and supporting Mozilla and Firefox. Overall, she likes the new Mobile Firefox too, as do I.

She's a typical Tab Hoarder kind of user. On her last phone, I introduced her to Collections. Much easier to use and get to than Bookmarks, easy to understand, good at helping her control the immense amount of tabs she otherwise has open. She basically fell in love with the feature.

A few days ago she got a new phone. We still have her old one, but the screen is 1/3 cracks and it no longer holds a charge well. "Well loved", for sure.

Install Firefox on new phone --> sync over her stuff --> all good... Well, wait... Where are her collections with her hundred-or-more tabs in them for various stuff?

Turns out they don't sync?

I've been helping her manually move over the tabs from the collections on her old phone to the new phone, but I feel *extremely* lucky we still have the phone. If she'd lost her phone instead, that would be quite the amount of time she'd spent getting acquainted with and using this feature just to find it doesn't save anywhere.

This was all essentially written as a real-life use-case, for the following plea:

Please, *please* add Collections to what is able to be synced with the Firefox Sync feature.

Add-on active in temp window but cannot access it

I have Firefox set as my default browser on my Pixel phone running the latest security update from Google. When I click a link that opens in app, it gives me a temporary window/browser for just use with that app. This is how it should work. My problem comes in with my use of NoScript and it doing it's job (often leaving the page unable to load,) but I have no access to the addon to ok any scripts without transferring the whole thing to the primary browser, which to me is self-defeating. I currently have NoScript set to run in both private and regular tabs. Is there a way to access the add-ons from that temporary window browser? OR Is it only running in it because I have it set to run in private tabs as well?

This is as much a question as it is feedback from someone who is running Firefox as my primary browser on Android.

Thanks for your time, Damon

Hello, when i dowload a pdf file with my Samsung A71 and want to open it, i don't get acrobat as a proposition to download it. Instead i get a proposition of applications which are useless for this purpose like garmin connect, stocard etc. I search on the internet but didn't find any solution. I would be grateful for your help as i really would like to stay with firefox instead of using Samsung internet where i don't have this problem.
