I hit something in error and now my search results are dark. Only the google screen as attached. if I go to the links on the search page they will be light. I read someone say that by touching the top of the screen can do that?. I may have done I was half asleep.

There is no about:config

The theme is light in settings/ customise. Latest FF in android 12 on an Honor x6

Also it is only FF, Brave shows search results as light.

I hate that dark look and want the ligh one back

In Firefox Focus for Android Version 110.1.0 Build#370591223 the option 'Add Shortcut' does not appear in the menu anymore. It was there prior to the update yesterday. I still have several shortcuts listed on the home page when Focus opens which I cannot remove, but that's a different issue.

Has this feature been removed from Firefox Focus for Android?

I have downloaded Firefox and set it as the default browser in my iPhone 13. However, whenever I use the internet, the search engine is still Google. I know that Google is a search engine and Firefox is a browser, but is there a way to make Firefox my homepage?

Option to Rename Shortcut While Installing Web App (as Add to Home Screen behaves)

When Adding a Shortcut to the Android Home Screen, it allows you with a pop-up option to Rename the Shortcut before placing it on your Home Screen.

However, when attempting to Install a Progressive Web App (from compatible Web App web sites), and clicking Install, it does NOT give you the opportunity to Rename the Shortcut.

In contrast, Chrome/Android allows the name change in both cases (non-Web App and Web App sites).

Is this feature in the works on FireFox Android?

Is there a work-around to Rename Shortcuts either before or after placing them on the Home Screen ?

Idk if this it's common knowledge or not, but I couldn't find anything anywhere about this! I accidentally opened a menu that let me change the background of my homepage on Firefox Nightly (Android)

I was just tapping around and a drawer poped up with a bunch of options including some limited edition ones at the bottom

I didn't think to screenshot the drawer but I did pick one I liked the looks of from the preview. I'll include a screenshot of the default homepage grey and the purple gradient I got through the theme drawer

The only other thing I remember is something about "add a splash of color" (it was spelt the American way specifically I remember)

Does anyone know how I can get this menu back? I want to try the different themes and theme my main Firefox app too

Recent "tab closed [undo]" Firefox iOS popup after closing any tab

This really annoying popup is a newer feature in Firefox iOS and it's very irritating because there doesn't seem to be any toggle to turn it off. If I close a tab I very consciously closed the tab, I don't need the popup to prompt me to reopen it. The popup also blocks the bottom nav menu in the app so you have to wait 1-2 seconds for the popup to go away before you can use the nav menu. Please make it possible to remove this firefox popup.

As the title says, is it possible for reader view to follow the system's light/dark mode?

Currently, I can manually choose white on black, sepia, or black on white. That's great, though I'd prefer if the black/white or white/black would switch according to whether the system is in light or dark mode.

Apart from that, thanks for Firefox, I love it!

Starting last week, or earlier, Firefox in my iPhone renders some websites in night mode colours. This seems most frequent in sites accessed by Google. I have tried turning night mode on and off in as many places as I can find, without improving the situation.

Home screen might be considered a specialized bookmark I suppose but the categories don't directly apply above. Browsers for decades have allowed a custom Url to be entered or "use current page" as home screen. I can find no option under firefox settings for Android enter it. What's the trick?

I picked last tab but that isn't the same as a fixed URL such as my bank website or Facebook page I would always want to see first.

Hey I'm using FF for android (v103) I know I can set FF to open links in external apps or to open links in FF. The problem starts when I want to open some links in FF and some in the external app.

For example: I like the way YouTube is played in FF and want YouTube links to stay in FF, while messanger.com links don't work at all in FF and I want to open them in messanger app.

Can I configure this to happen automatically? Choose which links opened externally and which not?

Hi,

When using the Edit bookmark feature I can no longer see the button that allows me to actually save changes. I took a screenshot of the edit bookmark window and have attached. As you can see while the window pops up, it no longer contains any buttons to make the edit changes. As a result I can neither edit, or add new bookmarks any longer

Thanks,

Yes I'm aware there's an option to hide toolbar when scrolling, however on website like Google maps or FlightRadar, firefox doesn't recognize scrolling and toolbar stay visible, which take up a lot of screen real estate when in landscape mode. Please add option to show webpage in full screen or hide toolbar by default.

I saw similar question has been asked but it was a year ago and archived with no answer.
