>when i visit youtube or any other page as well as download small files on BOTH my super computer and my android it works completely fine. when i visit the accounts page and sync page on firefox on my super computer it works fine.

>when i try to visit the sync page issued from the menu in firefox android on samsung it completely blocks it

bottom line:: samsung is violating ianna law to be overzealous about backdoor security.

DuckDuckGo found a Tracker?

Hello, I apologise if this information is already available somewhere, but I just couldn't find it.

I recently installed the DuckDuckGo app on Android 12 (Samsung One UI 4.1) which has a feature that blocks trackers from other apps.

While using Firefox it seems to have found and blocked a tracker simply called "Adjust" (this is where usually a brand name to whom the tracker belongs would be, e.g. google or amazon). It asks for: Device model, OS compilation number, type of connection, screen pixel density, country, OS version, unique ID, app name, CPU name, cookies, device language, post code, device make/brand, app version, e-mail address, android advertisement ID.

I don't really know what to think about all this, but I wouldn't expect firefox to track me in any way, I've trusted mozilla so far, and am inclined to continue to do so, but I'm confused by this and don't know what to make of it. The DuckDuckGo app doesn't really offer more information, and I might try asking them as well, idk. Googling didn't really help me, so I'll be thankful for any answer.

Lastest update added the "pull to refresh" gesture but i dont like that. Please add a option to disable it. Also, I close a tab and exit the program, when I reopen firefox, the tab comes back. Finally, it is not good for the Firefox account mail address to appear in the Firefox menu, it would be better to write "Firefox Account" instead of mail. (Sorry for my poor english, I used some translation.)

Hi there,

Is the script in this product bypassing Firefox privacy fences? I do not understand what they promote, but I have not a good feeling after reading their explanation. https://confection.io/scripts/click-engage-xbox-com/.

But I hope Firefox can do something against this possible new threat.

Hello! I noticed FireFox Android now reports my real OS version but FireFox Android has auto spoofed the useragent OS version from version 122? The install was via apk through Aurora app store if that makes any difference. I would like to fix this if its an error, if the spoof has been disabled then it will obviously remain. Thanks in advance!

I've been deleting my saved passwords in Firefox, after migrating to a standalone password manager. It's been anything but easy (deletions are not synced, and bulk deletion process is inconvenient to say the least).

What worries me is that my "deleted" passwords kept coming back as soon as I enabled Sync, until I realised I had duplicate devices in my Mozilla account control panel. I still have, though, some other connected services (Add-ons, Mozilla Support, Mozilla Monitor...).

Is what I've done enough to ensure they're gone? Where exactly are synced passwords stored, and how can I be sure that they aren't lying around in a Mozilla server, awaiting a future data breach? I don't have the time and energy to change 200+ passwords.

Hi there, I just downloaded the Firefox mobile app for iOS and when I opened the app for the first time got a terrible surprise. The home page was displaying a list of "recently visited pages" but (1) they weren't recently visited, and (2) they were pages I'd visited using a private tab on another Firefox browser (that wasn't supposed to save cookies). It felt like a BIG violation of my privacy. When I searched online for info about this, I found a Reddit/r/firefox thread with others describing the same privacy breach 4 months ago. PLEASE FIX THIS.

Hello

Is it possible to enable a password protection when starting the Firefox app on Android ? In special when saved passwords are used they are entered automatically and there is no additional protection of those when going on a website for which the password was saved. E.g. when somebody unlock your device the person is able to start Firefox and going through chronic or pages where you might enabled automatically password fill in. Can this be protected by pin or fingerprint?(like in the Firefox Password manager)

Thank you

If Firefox cares so much about privacy, why is there no way to automatically delete website data upon exit, including the dozens of cookies not related to the sites I’ve visited, like I can do in the Linux and Windows versions? I have to manually go into data management to do so each time, or they never go away. Many of that website data sure does look like tracking company cookies. :-( TIA!
