I can't figure out why Firefox Focus for Android is opening Amazon links by default. It isn't set as the default browser, as far as I can tell it doesn't have anything set to open by default. Usually I have the option to choose which browser to open a link with because I have multiple browsers installed.

I'm using a Galaxy s22 Ultra running Android 13. Any suggestions would be appreciated

Hello Mozilla community,

I've been a dedicated user of Firefox Focus for its privacy-centric browsing experience. However, I feel like I'm only scratching the surface of what this browser has to offer in terms of protecting my online privacy.

I'm interested in delving deeper into the privacy features that Firefox Focus provides. Could someone please share some insights on how to make the most of features like tracking prevention, automatic data clearing, and the overall enhanced privacy settings? Are there any lesser-known tips or settings I should be aware of?

Moreover, I'm curious about the compatibility of Firefox Focus with various platforms and devices. Does it function similarly across desktop and mobile? Are there any differences in terms of privacy features or settings between the two?

I believe that by learning more about Firefox Focus, I can take better control of my online privacy and security. Thank you for sharing your expertise and helping me make the most of this fantastic browser.

Hey, just wanted to bring awareness to the popout video player being broken in FFfocus on android (on my samsung S21, anyway) as of the latest stable FFfocus update.

As i move the video box up my screen, the video shrinks down, and the box gets filled by a black border. By the time the video player is at the top of the screen, the whole box is pure black.

P.S. this is a throwaway email (sorry), so i wont be able to respond. I just wanted to give a heads up, and the google play rep, told me to make a post here.

Some other potential worthwhile info Android 12 Samsung OneUI version - doesnt seem to matter Web video player doesnt matter

Thanks for making the best web browsers for the past 20 years!

I have made two Complaints to Google!! I explained in Detail that i have Stopped the many Google Play Store Permisions and why? I installed Google Go and gave the App all the Permissions it asks for! I downloaded it from Google Play! Their own site! I was amazed to see a question Do Not Use This For Search? Then i changed search engines as Google were Emailing me Non Stop! So i put focus as my Default Browser and they would not let me Backup my Phone but i have a 2nd email even though my main email for 35yrs is the same? Then if i dont give Permissions to Google Play Wallet wont work and on it goes! Its Blackmail pure and simple i never asked for thd App to begin with? Do i change everything back??

After using Firefox focus for a while on the Samsung Galaxy S23 Ultra I will sometimes start seeing screen flickering which will affect the entire OS. Opening my keyboard and doing app switches will show tons of flickering as well but closing Firefox focus seems to make the issue go away.

Simple: Will there ever be more than four shortcuts within Firefox Focus for Android? This is the only limiting factor I don't understand. I love this browser for everything else it does better than the standard Firefox, but this is the limiting factor... I would understand if the screen would be full, but it is not. A 4x6 matrix, maybe adjustable in the options how much, fits perfectly on probably all mobiles. The "put shortcuts on mobile desktop" is not a solution, that is already full enough as it is.

Hello,

I'm using Firefox focus for a long time but i wondered why there weren't any add-ons like ublock origin. So i taught maybe the beta or nightly version haves it but that's a no too. So i was wondering if mozilla is gonna work further with firefox focus or did they just dropped it because there weren't really any updates lately except bugs things. Another question how do i remove firefox focus beta and nightly out of the play store?

Hi All,

I have been experiencing problems with search suggestions in the search bar for over a year now, with delays or none showing up.

Since it did not occur only on my Fire Tablet, which was left old due to manual update, I investigated from which version it occurred and found that it occurred from v97.0.0-beta.3 and did not occur until v97.0.0-beta.2.

This version seems to have some changes related to the search bar. https://github.com/mozilla-mobile/focus-android/compare/v97.0.0-beta.2..v97.0.0-beta.3

The conditions known so far are

  • It only occurs in a specific fixed-line WIFI environment.
  • The problem occurs on an IPv6/MAP-E line using IPoE.
  • Changing DNS providers produces the same result.
  • Even in the above environment, the problem does not occur when a proxy server is used.

Please help.

I feel like this would be a better approach to adblockinv on Firefox Focus. I love this browser but it's built-in adblocker will often block important elements by mistake, or leave out certain things. Ublock Origin is a very powerful and memory effecient adblocker already part of the main Android app. It's more intuitive to use, has lists which are constantly updated and it can block elements with an element picker. I'm suggesting for it to be used instead as I think it'd be a much better approach to adblocking on Firefox Focus. What do you think?
