MANY Websites refuse to adjust to mobile screen size, including Google Mail. Text is not wrapped or shrunk to screen width.

Your "help fix" suggestion turn on and off desktop mode doesn't work.

It was working in previous version before updating to latest Firefox build earlier this week.

The latest stable Android release running on Android 11 with latest updates: >> 98.2.0 (Build #2015868577), 2b529a583+ AC: 98.0.12, 9ad94b2a33 GV: 98.0.1-20220313140707 AS: 91.0.1 << Example Screen shot attached from Google Mail.

I've searched and read several "fixes" for this problem, but they either don't make sense, are old, or don't work.

I have enabled sync on both devices. I have selected logins to be synced on both devices. I am not using primary password on either device. Still, I cannot get my passwords to show up in my android device.

Please help and keep it simple, because some of the answers elsewhere made no sense to me. I apparently need very small words to understand.

Hello,

Quite à few month ago, after update, my new Firefox for Android does not allow me to access to the print option. I cannot find the page nor the tools options using my mobile. When using edge, chrome or other browser, I still do have this option and therefore able to print pdf copies of the resources I do want to archive. Is it possible to know why these printing options are unaccessible on Firefox using Android ?

Regards

I am trying to disable auto-refresh on my tabs when I minimize them, but when I type 'about: config' into the address bar, it just shows search engine results instead of opening it as an actual URL. I have already gone into settings and disabled all search suggestions, and it's still doing it anyway.

What am I supposed to be doing here? I spent tons of time in the support community looking for fixes to my problem and all I found were people telling me to use Nightly, but I don't want to give up basic capabilities like printing etc.

Thanks!

My tabs have been ballooning like crazy because of this. I like the feature firefox has to resume browsing where you left off, however, it's been very frustrating to manage lately because of this.

Basically, say i have 10 tabs open, i close out of 5 of the tabs and then exit the app, when i reboot the app, those 5 tabs will be back open and i will have 10 tabs open once again!

Any ideas what might be up with this?

Add a deep link shortcut to my Android home screen when "Add to home screen" menu item is missing

I want to add a shortcut to my Android home screen which deep links to a page within a site I use. However, the "Add to home screen" menu item I'm accustomed to using for this is missing.

It turns out that if the website in question is configured to be used as a "progressive web app", then "Add to home screen" is replaced by an "Install" menu item. For my situation, this is unhelpful, because the resulting home screen icon only links to the website's home page, not to the carefully selected URL that I want to deep link to.

SOLUTION

This can be worked around by turning on airplane mode first, then visiting the desired URL. The page, obviously, will not be found, but this causes the "Add to home screen" item to be reinstated. Use it, then turn off airplane mode again. Voilà!
