First Of All, Thank you for such a wonderful Browser. I have been using Firefox Mobile for a while now. Everything is perfect for my needs. Except for one thing.

Less Number Of Search Suggestions.

Firefox Mobile shows less number of search suggestions. So, I tried to check in Firefox Focus. I used Google as my Only Search Engine in both Firefox Mobile and Firefox Focus. I have enabled every search suggestions settings in both. While searching for anything in search bar, Firefox Mobile shows only 3 suggestions for my search whereas Firefox Focus shows 10 suggestions. Even Firefox Beta and Firefox Nightly shows 3 Suggestions. This is stopping me from using Firefox Mobile. I can't switch to Firefox Focus as there is no support for Extensions.

If it's a mistake from my side, Please, Suggest Me, what do I need to do to get Firefox Focus like Search Suggestions in Firefox Mobile.

If it's an issue in Firefox Mobile, Please, Fix it as soon as possible.

I want Firefox Focus like Search Suggestions on Firefox Mobile. I wish to Donate to Firefox Mobile and continue my journey with it. Please, Help Me With This.

Your Humbly Firefox Lover.

Why has my otherwise serviceable Firefox for Android suddenly begun redirecting my input of "nnnnn.com" to "https://www.nnnnn.com/sa/ar/Home.page.com" ; forcing me to edit the url to include

" ... /us/en/ ... " in order to reach the English language website? 

I occasionally research Arabic language websites and those are rarely if ever Saudi Arabian as the redirect imposes. Update: Troubleshooting I did on Firefox Android shows that my issue is only in Private Mode. Typing the affected URL in regular mode gets me to the correct US English home page with no redirect to the Arabian version.

So I got directed here after leaving an unfavourable review due to an ongoing issue that google had no answers for. The screenshot should show the problem. I don't not know what causes it, only that it feels random when it breaks. Cashe/data clearing doesn't help, only a full reinstall seems to fix it, but this gets annoying pretty quick. The issue is search boxes on websites become black, and the text looks weird. The only add-on I use is UBlock, and when I left the review, the app broke after just an hour after being reinstalled, before I even installed UBlock.

My phone is a Samsung Galaxy S20Ultra if that helps, though I'm due for an update, and haven't had the time to sort it.

I currently have MozillaVPN & would like to also get Relay, but for some reason I can't take advantage of the current combo price deal for both. Is it even possible, since I have the VPN already? If it is, what's the process I should follow to be able to have both services at the currently offered special price? If it matters, I'm on the monthly payment schedule for the VPN & will need to continue that if I can bundle with Relay. My finances are limited, so a lump-sum yearly subscription is out of my league. Many thanks to anyone who reads this & can offer me some advice or at least point me in the right direction! (Even if the answer is "That's not possible.")

I'm on version 112.2.0 and I cannot disable the "feature" that haphazardly shoves my history in to groups that have nothing to do with each other but Firefox THINKS are related. The support post I've found discussing this promised there'd be a "disable search groups" option in version 97, but I'm on version 112.2.0, which (for those of you counting) is 5 mainline iterations afterwards. How do I fix this? It's constantly breaking my History.

in any other open tab, auto-hide addressbar/toolbar properly goes into hiding as soon as i begin scrolling, portrait or landscape.

ONLY IN AN ABOUT:CONFIG TAB, auto-hide addressbar/toolbar requires that i 1) scroll all the way to end of page and then 2) vigorously & multiply scroll down, through the stuck bar. any upward scroll & i have to start from scratch. portrait & landscape.

this Android alpha cancer has metastacized to Android beta. danged annoying.

please fix this bug & don't regress it back in.

If I visit a website that supports OpenSearch, how do I add it as a search engine?

The article Use gestures in Firefox for Android says I can long tap on a Web Address to add a site as a search engine: however on Android 10 this only gives me the standard "Open", "Cut", "Copy", "Paste", "Share", and "Read aloud".

Manage my default search engines in Firefox for Android has a section on adding a search engine, but it is cumbersome (manually adding the URL and "%s" for the query string). Plus it then lacks useful features of the OpenSearch standard, e.g. displaying an icon.

Since yesterday’s update, whenever I try to touch the address bar to enter in something (anything at all), it flashes for a bit and doesn’t do anything. It’ll show the search engine and go back to its usual state. I’ve never had this issue before.

I’ve tried redownloading the app on my iPad (Silicon iPad from 2022. Firefox and my iPad are at the latest version.), but nothing’s worked.

I’m out of options. Can anyone help?

Hello, since the latest update, the entire app is really slow. Especially when typing in search terms into the universal browser window. I've also noticed freezing of the app which requires closing out the app and opening again to fix. I have lots of tabs I do not want to lose so deleting the app completely is not an option. Please advise. I believe this has been reported multiple times in the app store with users experiencing the same or similar issues. Thank you

I keep trying Firefox browser once in a while for many reasons such a giving it a try to see the improvements, to give it a chance to become my daily driving browser but small niggles such as below doesn't give confidence to make it a default browser.

In website gsmarena.com on mobile Firefox browser when you type in search field, while website tried to dynamically show all matching phone models to a letter that you just typed, browser and keyboard just starts to lag and freeze before it can accept any further input of letter typing. Don't have this issue with other browsers.
