A website I am trying to use requires JavaScript to use. From what I've seen, JavaScript should be enabled by default, but I want to make sure and/or reset it to see if the website will work then. However, when I tried to figure out how to do that, the only suggestion on here was to change it through about:config, which doesn't do anything. I tried to look that up as well, and I believe someone said that had been taken out so it doesn't work anymore.

I am using FireFox on my Android phone. I've just installed the app, so I'm not missing an update or anyrhing like that.

So how do I make sure JavaScript is enabled? And if it is, how do I troubleshoot to figure out what is actually wrong with the site?

Thank you!

Yahoo is not offered as one of the choices for the homepage and the instructions as to how to enter it or in Chinese as far as I'm concerned. I've tried to copy what it says to do and it just does not work for me. Does anybody know how to help me do this before I lose my freaking mind? I have a Motorola Moto g Play phone and it is the worst piece of garbage I have ever bought in my life. I have never had this problem with any other phone I have owned

Hello there,

The problem that i am getting is that when i am downloading a file from the browser , it only shows on the screen notification panel but not in the 'downloads' section of the browser.

This is a major issue kindly help me sort it out.

Thanks !

Version: 68.8.0 Firefox for Android Release

May 5, 2020

Firefox account is verified and syncs on Linux (Debian, firefox esr). On android (actually android compat on sailfishos) the account can be signed into but is always flagged as requiring verification. Have purged app data to no avail. Tapping the box does not send a verification email. Not sure what else to try.

Hi! I'm looking for a way to remove the Android helper icon from the Firefox address bar (it lets me know the URL I have accessed can be opened in another app). I don't need it. I haven't found anything in the settings or anything obvious in about:config. The search functions here didn't return anything on this topic either - can anyone point me in the right direction?

Greetings everyone,

Sorry to be creating a thread about this, but it's a serious question I need help with.

I was just about to install Firefox for my old Android phone. However, before installing Firefox it warns me that it requires access to a bunch of my personal data... :(

Why is this the case?

I currently use Google Chrome on this Android phone.

I'd really appreciate any advice.

The last update of Firefox Android completely broke base functionalities such as tabs, and you now have to go into sliding sub-menues just to open up new tabs, or even switch between tabs.

For the longest time, I've been trying to stave off using Chrome, even as more and more pages seem to flat-out not work, but with this latest update, I really can't excuse using Firefox anymore, as even basic usage now becomes a constant back-and-forth, trying to fight against the application itself.

Is there any way to resolve this, or am I forced to migrate?

Or, if this is not possible and Firefox Android 79 is indeed unusable, how do I upgrade to 68 (which I believe was the previous version) without losing my pre-existing tabs (of which I have oh-so-many).

Hello. I use sync on two devices only, a PC and an android device. Today it has ceased to sync data to and from the android device. It just says "Last sync: never" even after clicking the sync button. The only thing I found online was to not have over 5000 bookmarks (which I don't) and to update Firefox. (I'm on the latest version)

So far I've tried clearing the data of the app, which didn't work so I tried reinstalling it entirely. That also didn't help. I've removed all duplicate devices from my account settings too.

Not sure what more I can do

EDIT:

Fixed itself of course only after I post here. I waited a few hours too..

How can one see a website's certificate details on Firefox (Android). I went to a website and the certificate says verified by "Godaddy.com\,Inc.", whereas on Chrome it says Godaddy.com,Inc.", so there is an extra backslash on Firefox. Is this normal behavior on the Android browser version (79.0.4)?
