To day 07.09.2023 at 12 Mid Day electricity went down. I was in the process of buying via internet at my PC the" enhanced tucking protection shield of Firefox. , I was several times over the past month reminded that it EXPIRED and needs renewal I gave details of my credit card, but am not sure if the transaction got completed. Because afterwards I could not find any trace of this transactipn at my PC and at my Firefox account, I am questioning ,if it was legal ?. Why is the " enhanced trucking protection " at present NOT LISTED between Furefox's products? please clarify.

Was it a legal transaction or a scam ? Was it completed or abounded ?

Please help to entangle these issues

Editing a search engine in Firefox Focus

I have recently added a new search engine in Firefox Focus, but I find out that something may be wrong with the URL after trying a few searches. I went to the search engine settings page in the app, only to find out that I cannot edit search engines which I have already saved. This means that to test different URLs, I would have to delete the search engine, paste the url again, edit it, name the search engine in case it works that time, and then go back and test if it works. This really shouldn’t be the hassle that it is right now.

I added a search engine. I had the right %s URL string. When I added it, Firefox Focus said "make sure you replace the search string with %s". That made me think it was checking the URL, so I added https:// in front, BUT I accidentally removed the first letter of the URL. It let me add it, but then searches didn't work. It letting me use the typo implies it doesn't check the URL.

A novice user may not realize that the error really means "add https://" not the catch-all "check your %s". Not sure where to report bugs, so I'm adding it here.

The workflow to fix my typo could also be improved upon. It's dark-pattern adjacent to have to go in to search settings, change the default to another engine (assuming there is one), get kicked back to main settings, then have to go back to search engines, remove the one you added, then add it again. Could be fixed by having Focus actually try the URL when adding one. I think adding offline would be a very infrequent use case, but you could make it prompt "Hey, I can't load this URL are you sure you want to add it?"

Google captcha fails on Safari when Firefox Focus enabled as content blocker

Hi, I have an account with https://www.theguardian.com . On iOS 16.4.1 with the latest Firefox Focus as of today 25 April 2023 (112.0) I kept getting sign-in failures because of Google Captcha issues. Initially I thought it was an issue with Google or the Guardian but this was lasting for many days. I could sign in fine using Safari on Mac Venture 13.3.1 . So I finally had the idea of disabling the content blocker - Firefox Focus, and then the Guardian's sign in page with the Google captcha worked fine and I was allowed to sign in on Safari, plus the iOS app The Guardian as it is using Safari for signing-in. Please fix this. Thank you

Especially for some sites, such as the Washington Post, when attempting to clear Focus by tapping the trash can, Focus freezes, then (both) the iPad or iPhone go black with a small spinning circle, rebooting to iPad's/iPhone's entry screen. This started happening recently, in early 2023, after updating iOS. Very very very (did I say "very"?) annoying. If this is not a current Focus bug report, it should be.

Since today, tapping and holding a link would use the same preview method as Safari, where it would show you a preview box that could show either a preview of the website or just the URL, switched by tapping the top right of the box. Now it uses its own preview mechanism and there is no option to show only the URL and nothing else. Could you please add such an option on the box? Thank you in advance.

Hello dear Firefox Focus team,

At the moment I see a bunch of interface languages available for the Firefox Focus application. At the same time the list is far from full in comparison even with Firefox app itself.

Personally I wish Belarusian language to be added to the app so that I would like to clarify the following:

1. Is there any way I could personally help with this and perform a translation from English to Belarusain (I'm a native speaker and a software engineer)? If yep who is the best contact point to kick-off the process? 2. Where can I raise the feature request if external contributions are not available?

Thank you.
