please i am Begging you let me put the forward/backward buttons on the search bar why do i have to open a separate menu to do this

ability to Choose what gestures do (for example, swiping on the search bar in either direction to navigate history rather than tabs) would also be acceptable, if slightly less convenient (as i suspect something like that would only allow moving forward/back one page at a time, as opposed to simply press-and-holding to pull up all your options to jump to)

i am losing my mind a little bit here i don't understand why it has to be so roundabout

Just updated Firefox to version 112.2 on my iPad which has iOS 15 Did the update via the apple App Store. Relaunched (restarted) Firefox and ALL tabs that were open are Gone! I can’t find the “restore previous session” option anywhere.

Can you tell me where to find it? How do I get the previous session back?!?

I’ve been using Firefox for years. Firefox not starting up after the update with all the previous tabs open is devastating to me. I need to get the previous session restored. Please help

I want to open multiple pages at the same time in Android 12, but Firefox for Android does not seem to support multi-instance (like in the attached image). I also tried beta and nightly but none of them worked either. As other browser apps (Chrome, Edge, Samsung, etc.) support it, I switched my default browser app to Samsung internet on Android (temporarily).

I don't want to use multiple apps (Stable, beta and nightly) just for opening multiple pages in a single screen. Is there any plan to support multi-instance in the future version of Firefox?

I am trying to set the home page on my Samsung S21 with android v13 and firefox v117. I cannot find any means for setting the home page. The customize homepage in the top (3 button) menu has no option for setting a different home page.

The homepage option under settings gives you exactly the same options as above.

The customize option under settings applies only to the theme and has no options for managing the home page.

Unfortunately every version of firefox is different and all the instructions I have found apply to different versions of firefox than the one I am using.

Hello!

Look, i just cannot find a way to install my own small addon for firefox android that i made on my own device. I dont need it to be publicly available. I dont need noone to install it. I just want to install it on my own phone, and that's it, nothing more! That's just a small, few-lines-of-code addon which blocks annoying ads on a certain site me and my wife are using. All i want to install it on our phones. I dont care if it will be firefox nightly release for devs, or anything. If there's any way to install it, like using web-ext, adb, or maybe anything other than that - please let me know. I just spent 50x time more trying to install it on my own phone than actually writing it. Please, i really hope you can help. Thank you in advance!

Recently, I switched to Edge on iOS while I am searching for a browser with adBlock function implemented. Safari with the extensions does not really block all the ads on some websites, especially the shady ones. Edge is able to block the ads with Adblock Plus integrated in their setting. It basically works all the time, but sometimes it blocks the video sources too, but no worries there is a whitelist you can manually add.

Is it possible for Firefox iOS to add this kind of adBlocker in the app? I hope so because I really like Ff desktop and Android, but I had to use iOS.

I’ve been trying to install an ad blocker for FF on my iPad and I’m stuck in an endless loop. I navigate to the add on store and it says I have to install FF, even though it’s installed and set as default. The store has the “open” button, not install or download. I have a 5th gen iPad running 16.6. FF is at ver 117.0.

I ran across a bunch of posts about addons not working but they were from about 4 yrs ago. Here are some screenshots of what happens. Are addons prohibited on an iPad?

Is there a way to force "dark mode" for websites on mobile WITHOUT using an extension like Dark Reader?

I am comparing this to coming from Brave, where I am using their "experimental" Night Mode settings (which works great). For the desktop browser, I've gone to Manage Colors and swapped text/background white/black to make most websites appear as if they have a dark mode, but that option doesn't seem to exist on mobile.

I've attached 4 images that show the differences across the two browsers on mobile. Even Google's own Dark Theme doesn't seem accessible through whatever method FireFox uses, so I can't even use that dark theme without an extension at the moment.

If this is not currently possible, I'm hoping it's planned for future implementation. I can't suggest it either since the feature suggestion page appears to be down at the moment (being reworked?).
