Dear Community,

I used for three days the function sync on firefox. In this procedure I wanted to transfer my android tabs to my desktop pc. On my desktop pc I have seen all tabs of my android phone. So I have started to transfer the tabs to my desktop pc. After a short time my mozilla firefox on android crashed and after my restart of my android firefox all inactive tabs were gone.

So this was my first time, when I made this bad experience in over more than 15 years of using firefox. Meanwhile I searched for different solutions, but nothing fitted to my challenge.

I hope really, that somebody could help me:

  • Is there any possibilty to see the cache on the desktop pc from the android data, which was seen in the sync tunnel?
  • Is something saved on the sync cloud, where I could get data from?
  • Is a cache file existing of the sync data?
  • Is there any option of old session restore? If yes, where can I find different backup files on android?
  • Can I connect with e.g. SDK in the developer mode and get files of sessionstore.js? A JASON file of the inactive tabs would be really nice.
  • Any other developer modes, which could be helpful? Trouble Shooting?
  • Can I root the mobile phone afterwards and get hidden files of firefox?
  • Are there any other unvisible places, where the data of deleted inactive files could be find?
  • Can I access data through the android firefox browser?
  • Perhaps you will have a solution through SDK?
  • Do you have other devtools to try? I am fine with remote debugging through usb, if you will have a solution for it.

I appreciate your support and hope to find a solution for my request. I loved firefox for a long time.

Thank you so much.

Kind regards

This feels like it's a bug to me and it's kind of annoying to have to minimize the keyboard every single time. Whenever you click on the top site link from your homepage, it automatically opens the keyboard when it opens the side at the same time and you have to manually minimize a keyboard. Keyboard. It shouldn't have to open the keyboard at all because you're already clicking a bookmark link to visit the site.

When I hit the share button on a site (I discovered this on an album on Flickr), it does give me the option to share to every single app possible on my phone, but I can't just copy the link and place it in my clipboard. That's so frustrating because it is sometimes so much easier to just copy the link into the clipboard and paste it later, even when you want to share it to multiple places so much easier to copy it.

I'm using a OnePlus 9 pro running android 11 (OxygenOs 11.2.9.9.LE15BA).

Using 94.1.2 FF Daylight on Android. Everytime a link is clicked a new tab is made, perhaps every new search too. Whatever it is, too many tabs are being generated by my browsing and I spend a lot of time controlling and reducing way too many tabs. And there's no apparent way to just say go to the link in the same tab, not in settings and about:config is disabled in Daylight FF. I like less tabs and just use the back button. It might be my imagination but newer versions of FF seem setup to make more tabs vs older versions? Anyway, I ask for a way in settings to make less tabs. Thanks.

In Firefox Android a few search engines are included by default. And we can also add other search engines. Brave Search is new best search engine but if I add it via other option it doesn't detect that Brave is default search engine means every time I search something, Brave search says me to make it default even if it already is so!

So if Firefox keeps it built in and we can add just by clicking on Brave, it would be better.

I have a Moto g5 one ace (if that matters), and i cant hear sound at all on android Firefox. Ive been on multiple sites to make sure it wasn't an exception, and every site i go to doesn't have any sound. Videos can play, but there's no audio. My phone has an easy audio mixer tool that show every app i have open, but Firefox doesn't appear when i open it. Sound works everywhere else on my phone perfectly fine. Ive looked it up but i can't find anyone else with the same problem. I know my phone has some issues when connecting audio via bluetooth but i don't know if that matters at all. Maybe its just my phone? Please help.

Hello everyone

I couldn't find the answer looking here at support page.

Scenario:

1.Link received by WhatsApp 2.Hit the link launched Firefox (which is my default phone browser) and Firefox displayed the google form 3.Google form API automatically filled the form email field with google account email

Question: from where google form get the email address data'

I made several tests and I can confirm Firefox allows google form API to read my phone settings. Cos, If I send the link to another phone with a different google account the behavior is the same: once link is open the google form autofill the email field with the google account email on that phone.

Isn't supposed FF will block tracking stuff?

This is not related with auto fill settings. I also made that test too, by wiping history data and results are the same. In fact the google form displays the message 'not your account? change it'

I would like to know if I can change this behavior on FF and if possible, why is not enabled by default. This kind of settings does not provide privacy at all.

Hey guys, why does the firefox android could not click a very simple small button? For example an "x" button (cancel) and etc. As long as it's small the firefox would not interact with it properly, instead when i click it firefox thought that i long pressed that small button and its kinda annoying because what i need to do is to zoom in for that button just so the firefox could properly click that and not long pressed. Problem is almost all the websites i visit has a button like that and so does it mean i will literally need to zoom a simple "x" button or any kind of small details on a webpage just for firefox could properly identify them? Example of whats happening link Browser: latest firefox android Device: Realme 6 , 8/128

Hi all!

To test this I did a complete fresh install of Firefox on Android. After installation I paired Firefox with my account via firefox.com/pair. On my PC the main password is activated and supposed to protect my passwords via encryption. After pairing and enabling the password sync option all my stored passwords are available on the Android phone. And I even can have a look at them in clear text.

This is a huge problem since it never asked me for my main password. This password is supposed to be required to decrypt this data. Which means this data is not encrypted on the Firefox servers. Which in turn means even my passwords I use on the PC are not secure.

According to all documentation I read until now I was assuming my data is only stored encrypted and can only be restored with the main password. Right now I don't really know what to do. I require a secure password store.

Many Greetings! Remo
