Error message showing. Browser will not open no matter which search engine I use.

https://www.google.com/search?q=adguard%20app&ie=utf-8&oe=utf-8&client=firefox-b-1-m has a security policy called HTTP Strict Transport Security (HSTS), which means that Firefox Focus can only connect to it securely. You can’t add an exception to visit this site.

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.

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.

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 added a new Search Engine, however they use different endpoints for the normal search string, and autosuggestion string. As a result, the normal Firefox Focus "Get Search Suggestions" doesn't necessarily work for this engine.

The normal endpoint is /search/?q=%s, but their autosuggestions are at /api/autosuggest?q=s

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!
