Downloads Tab or option removed & "Save as PDF" also Removed in the Recent Firefox android Update! Removing Downloads option is not good by any mean, because how am i suppose to resume the paused file or a failed file due to network issue...? second point is about removing the " Save as PDF" Option where i was able to download a webpage as PDF. That was an awesome feature, which is now unavailable.

So, what are you going to do about this..?

There have been so many complaints and one star reviews about version 79, would it really be so hard to reintroduce version 68 back onto the play store under a new name like "Firefox legacy" or "Firefox classic", so we could run that side by side with 79 until the dismal failure that is version 79 has at least been fixed to the extent that people can decide it's worth changing over, i.e., when the things that are most important to them have been fixed? For me that is a customisable home page because I've set up my own site to be my home page on all browsers on all platforms because (so I thought) nobody would be stupid enough to release a browser that doesn't allow that to be customised, and more access to important addons like adblock plus and the home page button, and, of course, a back button.

You could add a big disclaimer that there would be no security or other updates in the description.

Hi folks,

Firefox updated automatically to 79 (Android). Now it ignores the passwords that I entered in former times and does not ask for saving, if I enter new passwords again and again. Yes, the setting is "Ask for saving passwords".

Any ideas? Thanks in advance, Bernd.

Before the Daylight update I was able to disable loading of all images from the advanced settings options in the settings.

That's gone now. That feature isn't in any of the major competitors either. Vivaldi, Edge, Brave, Chrome. No setting for that. I'm very frustrated with that. What now?

I'll be a lone voice on some help forum where my request for the return of this simple feature will be ignored for years?

This feature going to come back anytime soon?

Hello,

Since the update to the new Firefox for Android (79.0), some of my saves usernames and corresponding passwords are not prefilled anymore. Some others are. The credentials are all still there - I can see and review them in the Settings -> Logins and passwords -> Saved logins.

Some credentials are for HTTP basic authentication (2x), some are for simple login forms (2x). From the basic authentications, both are *not* prefilled. From the regular HTML forms, one is and one is not.

Is this a know bug? If so, how can I help to diagnose the problem? If not, what am I doing wrong?

Thanks in advance, Frans-Willem

Hi,

Now when i click the address bar at the top I'm met with a Blank Screen whereas before the update I had my Top Sites "pinned" for quick & easy access. I now have to faff around going into the bookmarks which is pointless when this feature was working perfectly well, why remove it?

Also when i start Firefox fresh i see small icons for the top sites but they're so small the URL/Name doesn't show up so i have no idea which icons lead to which sites. These need to be bigger like post update and put back line they were before.

If it ain't broke don't fix it. This update is a massive fail, please revert ASAP.

There are a number of add-ons "not yet available" with this automatic upgrade on Android. Password management add-ons should be high priority for support.

Add-on developer confirms that this particular one works. What is the reason for the non-support?

https://github.com/palant/pfp/issues/117

Is there a way to enable "not yet available" add-ons in the meantime? Especially if this is more policy related and not necessarily technical.

Thanks!
