I had to remove all instances of this on my mobile devices as my antivirus (ESET) flagged the app as containing a malware Trojan. What the heck? This only affects the latest update off the play store. Anyone else run into this and is there going to be a fix?

I almost always have to tap multiple times....like 7 or 8 times ... to get a link to open. This happens on almost all sites...google, mozilla.org, my own site. Responses are immediate if I go into FireFox settings and tap around. Also, all other taps are immediate...like mail, calculator, etc. That includes tapping a link in an email. The page will open with one tap but then any links on the page will take many taps.

The phone is a Sony Model G8441 running Android 9. Build number 47.2.A.11.228

Hello I am German and not used to write in english. I use Firefox on my Xperia device. Within the last Update I got the new function to collect the tabs. I created several collections and named them. After I put in the tabs and deleted them in the list. So they were only in the collections. Today I wanted to use one Tab out of the collection. But the whole collection Was not any more there, same with 2 Others! Where are these collections and the tabs now? I did not delete them and I need them.

Where are they and how can I use them again?

Kind regards

Good morning. I have no problem with Firefox on my desktop accurately showing my location. If I pop onto a store site it automatically shows the right zip code. However I am NY and whenever I use my phone to access somewhere that requires location it defaults to usually somewhere in New Jersey. My Android on Firefox is up to date, my phone (Samsung Galaxy A10E) says all it's software is up to date and I am allowing access to location for Firefox correctly, I believe. But it is frustrating that every time I am out I have to manually change the zip and sometimes go through the step of making a store 'my store' just to get an idea of inventory in my area. Thanks for any help you can provide in advance.

When trying to login to addons.mozilla.org to add add-ons to my collection, for Firefox Nightly - it prompts me with an e-mail verification. This mail is never sent to the specified address, no matter how often I retry. I just can't seem to enter accounts.firefox.com on Firefox, on my Android device.

Ironically, there are no issues logging in using Chrome, on the same Android device, nor on other (desktop) devices. They just ask me for my 2FA code and then I'm logged in.

- I did not forget my password - I have two-factor authentication using an authentication app (Google Authenticator) - I did previously manage to log in to accounts.firefox.com (months ago) - I'm running Firefox Nightly - the latest available version from the Google Play Store - I'm signed into Firefox Sync in Firefox, with the same account - I'm also using Lockwise, with the same account

I don't know when this started, as my last login was months ago, before my botched attempts yesterday.

After upgrading to Android 10, Firefox has been using strange fonts on some pages - please see the attached image from a clean install of Nightly (https://lobste.rs). The mainline release has the same issue. It didn't happen with Android 9.

It's always the same fonts with that script one for headings, and only some pages are affected. Chrome displays them correctly with the normal sans fonts.

My phone is a OnePlus 5, ONEPLUS A5000_23_201029, OxygenOS 10.0.1.

Affected: Firefox Nightly 201201 17:01 build #2015778891 Firefox mainline 83.1.0 build #2015776403

Can someone please help me understand the list of what is "Blocked" and "Allowed" on my browser. I've included a screenshot below. What I'm not understanding is where Enhanced Tracking Protection has the sites listed under "ALLOWED" and why those sites are allowed instead of being Blocked. I hope this doesn't mean what I can only assume it means in which case I personally would never allow. Thank you in advance for your time and support.

File downloads through Firefox on Android is not working on my phone. For example, here is a file in an email accessed through FireFox on Android

I tap download and nothing happens. I have used Astro File Manager to search for the file. It is found no where in the file system of the phone.

Is there a way to fix this?

Thank you.
