For some reason most addons stopped being available on android, I'm not sure if this happended because of the build I'm using or is it like that for everyone Is there any way to fix this?

I read something about Firefox Nightly having an option to install all addons, but that doesn't work for me either

As of Firefox 77.x on macOS 10.14.6 I cannot access or see any of my add-ons in the browser page interface.

• I've 'reset' Firefox. • I've trashed the .plist file for Firefox. • I've gone through the traditional routine of trashing favicons.sqlite, favicons.sqlite-wal, places.sqlite, places.sqlite-shm, and places.sqlite-wal. • I've verified that all my add-ons are currently valid ON and valid. • I've turned off and on extensions to see if one of them is causing the problem. • I've Quit and rebooted Firefox between each of these steps.

Nothing is helping. This apparently is an entirely new situation from when I was seeing this problem in previous versions of Firefox when I was always successful at solving this specific problem.

What changed and what do I do now? This severely hobbles my ability and willingness to use Firefox browser. Please end this madness. I'm to the point of irate, after all this trouble with add-ons.

After many failed attempts with add-ons I come to this forum to ask this basic question. How can I sort bookmarks either alphabetically or manually? I don't understand how such a basic function can be missing from any browser????

Also there seems to be some problem in the Firefox "system" where it thinks I'm looking for desktop applications despite the fact that all of my queries are initiated through the Android browser.

Is there a setting to get the contrast back on the Gmail web page? When I load the site I can't see the select icons/boxes down the left hand side, nor the action icons at the top of the page like delete, mark as read, report spam etc. They are there because when I hover over where they should be with the mouse I get the text showing. They are quite faint in Windows but not showing at all in Linux. I have tried changing colours and different themes but nothing works.

Restoring mobile/Android tabs after accidentally "Close All Tabs"

Hi,

Unfortunately I lost over 130 tabs today after accidentally hitting "close all tabs" while trying to open up a private session. The lack of failsafe asking if I'm sure or offering to undo this means weeks of research down the drain.

Some of the tabs have been open for weeks, and others just for days... which means finding the older tabs through my history is almost an impossibility.

I have Mozilla Synch activated and was hoping there might be a way to sync tabs onto my desktop browser from a few hours ago, or even from a day ago. Is this possible? Do any other methods exist to restore these tabs? I've tried scouring forums for answers and I'm getting desperate.

Thank you

hello, i have a Raspberry Pi 4 with 4GB and Raspberry Pi OS installed. (2020-05-27-raspios-buster-armhf.zip)

when i use the stock Firefox ESR (installed via sudo apt install firefox-esr) and watch videos (e.g. on Youtube, Vimeo, ...), Firefox does crash some times. according about:crashes, i already have submitted about 60 crash reports.

but watching the reports one thing is missing. when i open firefox from the console i can see some output, that is not appearing in the reports.

... firefox-esr: /build/firefox-esr-RgOFaD/firefox-esr-68.11.0esr/media/libcubeb/src/cubeb_alsa.c:1255: alsa_stream_get_position: Assertion `delay >= 0' failed. ExceptionHandler::GenerateDump cloned child 3366 ExceptionHandler::SendContinueSignalToChild sent continue signal to child ExceptionHandler::WaitForContinueSignal waiting for continue signal... Exiting due to channel error. Exiting due to channel error. Exiting due to channel error. Exiting due to channel error. Failed to open curl lib from binary, use libcurl.so instead Firefox ESR crashes when playing videos on Raspberry Pi OS (Debian)

during watching videos in firefox there is more different output to see that seems to be harmless. but always and only this line is printed to console, just befor Firefox crashes: firefox-esr: /build/firefox-esr-RgOFaD/firefox-esr-68.11.0esr/media/libcubeb/src/cubeb_alsa.c:1255: alsa_stream_get_position: Assertion `delay >= 0' failed. so i assume this is the main reason, why Firefox crashes on my system.

any idea how i can get these issue fixed? at the moment when i want to watch videos reliable i am be forces to use the external VLC Player by copy the url to VLC - at least for Youtube videos. but i want to watch videos from other web pages as well and i prefer to watch videos in firefox directly.

Is there a way to turn it on or to fix this issue? Please see below the screenshot when using Chrome browser.

Are there any ways to make the default home screen dark in Android version of Firefox 68.10.1?

I've set my default home screen as about:home which I assume is default by default. I was wishing for a darker colorscheme/custom colorscheme! Because during day time, I tend to the use light a.k.a. the default colorscheme, however, at night, the light colorscheme literally puts strain in my eyes, and Im pretty sure any nightowls could hands down agree with that. Now, I've tried an extension called Dark background white text extension and it puts a darker color on my home screen, which is amazing, however during a search, the background unexpectedly changes to bright color. Also, the menus and the settings tab could also use a darker coloescheme! I've tried firefox nightly on my android, and liked it because of its darker colorscheme, but the basic Firefox that I'm using now, feels more comfortable (: If there's any way to implement dark mode on the app that'd be dope! Aside from that, keep up the good work!

Just planning ahead here...

I have Firefox 68.9.0esr (the latest esr version). I have Firefox set to “check for updates but let me decide whether to install them.” I have read that a new version of esr based on Firefox 78 will be released on June 30, 2020, but that there will be an approx 3-month overlap period during which one can alternatively choose to use additional 68.xx esr updates.

If I want to take advantage of this overlap period and keep using an up-to-date 68esr as long as possible, how would I do so? After June 30, will I be offered only 78esr versions, or will I be offered the “overlap” 68.xx? If the answer is that I will be offered 78esr as of June 30, how can I obtain the overlap 68 esr updates instead?

Thanks.
