I like to stay logged in on a certain site. But everytime I close FF all my cookies are gone. I don't want to keep all my cookies just for the one site. I have enabled the option to remove all cookies when using 'Exit' when closing FF app. I don't want to change this. In FF on my laptop I can store certain cookies I like to keep. I have Ghostery set to 'Trust Site'. Searched all over the Internet. Does anybody have suggestions?

I want to manage cookies on android, but all I can do is delete all the ones I have or keep them all. I want to delete cookies by site, but I can't find an option for this.

Add-on cookie managers don't work on android - including on android beta.

How can I manage cookies, and other local storage settings by website or even individual cookies?

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).

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.

Ever since the revamp I have a lot of trouble with typing a search phrase in the address bar. After hitting enter, nothing happens. Hitting the magnifying glass: nothing. Selecting an alternate engine: nothing.

I have not noticed a definite pattern, but I want to say that it is more frequently occurring when I'm searching from a previously-opened tab (maybe something to do with trying to search from a tab that never fully opened? Just a guess.) It is not a connection problem- I switch to chrome: no problems. I want to continue using firefox, so I am writing this, but it is annoying enough that I will be forced to uninstall and use another browser if the problem persists. Good luck folks, I support Mozilla's mission and want y'all to continue to succeed

How can we get Firefox to roll back the recent, very unpopular updates? What was the greatest browser is now unusable. They took a great product and utterly destroyed it. At least give us the option of a Firefox Classic.

After the updating to the last version of Firefox in Android, the browser started to save the downloaded gifs and videos to some different location, so they are not displayed in the phone gallery. With previous versions this was not happening. Due to this issue, it is being harder to share these contents as you have to locate them by manually searching through the file explorer, while before you could just get them easily through the messaging apps. I couldn't find any setting to fix it.

So I just downloaded the Firefox mobile app for Android and I am lost. I am trying to find what I would consider a homepage like on chrome or edge and I'm not finding anything. Where do I find it or how do I begin using Firefox mobile app? Where do I go to like set up.my homepage the way I want it? And how do I view it what's the URL? Like I said I'm totally lost this looks like a different universe to me. I did just to find a support site that I'm hoping we'll answer some of my newbie questions. The link is https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/new/mobile. Attached are the only two screenshots that I have because I just can't seem to navigate Firefox app.
