Is there a toggle to turn off the purple theme in private windows? As an elderly person I find it hard to see things and it's quite irritating to say the least. This only started showing up in my Windows 10 and my linux systems in FF Version 106 and is also violating my preferences to have a totally blank page when a new private window is opened. Suggestions would be most appreciated.

Hey,

I had to replace my Android phone and send the old one in. I had the google cloud backup activated + used the transfer data and apps function when migrating (Android to Android). However, it seems like my bookmarks are gone, I guess there is no way to get them back. Is this correct behavior?

I understand that there is Firefox sync and save feature (which I use on my personal device). However my understanding was that migrating phones with the "copy apps & data" function should migrate things seamless without having to worry about custom logins in each app. Did I do something wrong? Or is this understanding wrong? If so, would this be different in ios (this was a very painful experience that I don't want to repeat)?

Thanks for your help & sorry if this is only partially Firefox specific and partially about my general understanding.

I am using the video background fix addon but whenever i minimize firefox, it will play the current video untill the end and will not autoplay the next one. I have to bring forefox to the screen again and then it starts the video.

On my much older Android device, i am using the same setup and have no problem with autoplaying the next video, even when firefox is minimized. Any suggestions?

Hi. I downloaded the latest issue of Firefox (104.0.1) to my mobile phone and since then I have been unable to connect to the internet via 4/5G - but it is OK using wifi. This is highly annoying when I need to connect whilst out and about. Weirdly, the calculator on the phone and Samsung Notes have also disappeared and I am unable to download from the Play Store! All the usual things like rebooting, cleaning caches etc do not work. Is it possible to roll back to an earlier version? Any ideas would be useful, given the lack of phone contact available, thanks

I've now installed Firefox several times including at least one clean install. I've worked through all the support pages on how to fix the problem, including system scan using MalwareBytes, and removing extensions, but the problem persists.

To be more precise, sometimes it just crashes immediately leaving the notices shown in the image. Sometimes it opens and stays for a while but then crashes with a similar notice.

Crash reports:

bp-945b32f1-96b3-4233-ba19-03c310221026 26/10/2022, 12:02 bp-2af09469-4ba1-4531-8406-5e0f70221026 26/10/2022, 12:02 bp-d7d56904-ca94-4397-812d-a39260221026 26/10/2022, 09:55 bp-7e88f783-318e-4401-b825-89a810221024 24/10/2022, 18:50

Hi,

I'm using Linux and the distrib has inclueded ff 91.12. It has remote debugging in it. I would like to try it but I see I have to install this version of android ff to my device to work.

Where can I found safe/virus free older versions?

I have android-sdk/android studio installed to Linux and works well. Can I download ff android source somewhere or isn't it open source?

How to save inactive tabs to desktop

I have probably over 1000 tabs on my Android that I wanted to start to bookmark in my desktop. I find that most of them are inactive now, which I appreciate the intent, but I never asked for. Now when I have time to deal with them, I have tried multiple ways to bring them to my computer or bookmark them from my phone, but nothing seems to work. It doesn't seem like there is much of anything that you can do with inactive tabs even if you share them to your desktop.

It is my understanding from trying to research this, that the Collections you create on your phone are not synced to my Firefox account so that doesn't seem helpful. Is there an extension that could solve this for me? It doesn't work to try to bookmark them from my phone because they don't show up in my desktop bookmark folder that I assigned.

The thing that has worked best so far is to Share my tabs to a temporary folder [Phone Inactive Tabs] on my desktop then search (for example: recipe) then open some in tabs and bookmark them. However, after I have categorized them into the proper bookmark folder (Food/Recipes), they disappear from that folder when I try to delete them from my temporary folder. It does the same thing if I save tabs into OneTab first.

Can someone please help me so that I don't lose years of things that I really want to keep? I would appreciate it! It would be helpful if I could even share all my inactive tabs (or even URLs) into a folder on my desktop so that I could search and bookmark them at a later time without it deleting all that work. Thanks in advance!

When I have "Open links in apps" turned on, for some reason all links to xda-developers.com URLs are directed to the Nextcloud app — which obviously doesn't know what to do with them.

I enjoy the "open in app" feature but this is frustrating. I checked in the app information settings that the Nextcloud app doesn't open any URLs by default, and certainly not specific to xda-dev...?

Firefox displayed a pop-up box on 10/30/22 or 10/31/22 that I accidentally agreed to. The appearance of all my tabs and screens changed. I'm not interested in any other themes. Community support said to install "System" theme to get the default back, but it's not completely the same. For example, checkboxes on forms display as white checkmarks which are hard to see. In my email, the messages and replies display oddly and are hard to read as the contrast is poor. HOW DO I GET ALL MY DEFAULT BACK?
