Android 14, One UI 6.0, Samsung S22+

Firefox is using a large amount of battery while idle. You can see my app runs open a lot of the day, but not in use much. It has drained 20 percent of one days battery, and I am watching YouTube videos on another app (Grayjay btw check it out!) and it has used far less battery. If I set Firefox into a sleeping state, the app still drains a lot of battery. When in deep sleep,it stops draining as much power, but then Android keeps auto pushing their own browser to be my primary browser. I'm not sure what to do in this case, as it's too much of a hassle to have links not auto open in Firefox when in deep sleep. This excessive battery drain doesn't make sense, and I was wondering if there was any fix for this. Thanks for taking the time.

For the past month or so, when scrolling on Facebook, everytime I stopped momentarily to look at a post, when I continued scrolling, the post would reappear. Mildly annoying. Starting today, however, when I scroll down a few posts, it takes me back up to the top of the page. Any solutions would be appreciated. Thanks.

I have two questions.

1. Can I import bookmarks into Firefox for Android using an html file?

2. Is the following article correct for Firefox for Android?

https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/import-bookmarks-html-file

I have Fx 123 for Android. I expected to see "Manage Bookmarks" at the bottom of the bookmarks menu like what is found in one of the article's screenshots. However, "Manage Bookmarks" doesn't appear.

Thank you for your time.

Hi, I have a problem with my firefox app. Everytime I play or skip a port of a video, it plays stuttering and return normal only If I rewind some second (if I pause it nothing change). Anyone knows why? Is there some way to solve this problem? I have deleted every data, cookies etc, every add-on and reinstalled the app but nothing changed. I also formatted every setting of my device but same result. Oh, also, this problem don't happen with other apps like gallery or chrome video (I hope bitrate doesn't cause problems).) .

I gotta ask... why isn't there a setting to remove private browsing on firefox? Now yeah sure it's free security but we got add ons for that. I've always felt like private browsing and incognito stuff is just a way to go to pornhub feeling secured from criticism. That's why I quit Chrome (+ being able to watch YouTube with ads for free) so I gotta ask again... why isn't there a setting to remove private browsing on firefox?

I am writing to request assistance with an issue I am encountering on the latest version of the Firefox browser for Android. My goal is to open specified pages in the same tab using Intent from a third-party custom application. However, I have observed that different URLs open in separate tabs, contrary to my expectations.  Current Implementation:  Here is the code snippet I am currently using: java: Intent intent = new Intent(Intent.ACTION_VIEW); intent.setData(uri); intent.putExtra(Browser.EXTRA_APPLICATION_ID, packageName); startActivity(intent); Expected Behavior:  I expect different URLs to open in the same tab without opening new tabs. This functionality is crucial for my application.  Issue Background:  I have researched similar issues and found that users have had comparable needs using Browser.EXTRA_APPLICATION_ID. Unfortunately, it appears that Firefox has not fully addressed this functionality. The EXTRA_APPLICATION_ID is a feature that modern browsers should ideally support to enhance user experience and maintain continuity within a single tab.  References:  I have referred to the following discussions and issues for additional context:  Mozilla Support Forum: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1364869 GitHub Issue: https://github.com/mozilla-mobile/fenix/issues/23329 Request:  I kindly request that the Firefox team consider adapting this functionality officially or provide an alternative solution if it has already been addressed. Any relevant documentation or guidance on achieving this behavior would be highly appreciated.  Thank you for your time and assistance.

Since updating to Android 14, I have had this issue twice now. I notice that my phone has way less battery than normal at the end of the day. When I check what has used all of the battery, I see that firefox has used over 10% with only like 3 minutes of screen on time. Reinstalling the app seems to fix it, but I don't want to keep reinstalling.

Firefox has been a great browser on my new S22 however I have noticed recently that it has been dropping my battery percentage extremely fast, and I notice its lower almost every minute I check. This is confirmed in the battery settings menu where it shows an abnormally high amount of usage, when I mainly use Firefox for general browsing and close background tabs.

With the removal of a 'speed dial' from the recentish big update of Firefox for Android I thought I could use the Shortcuts (on the somewhat limited homepage options) to do the same job.

But these don't seem to sync with Firefox for Windows and there's no Shortcuts option in the sync menu. I switch between two platforms a lot and having those shortcuts sync is really important as I add pages for looking at at different times on different devices.

I *know* I could use bookmarks, but that's another couple of clicks every time I want to go to a webpage - over the course of a day that could be hundreds.

It's used to be possible to have a syned homepage in Firefox for Android. It's still possible in Vivaldi, Opera & Brave. But I'd like to use Firefox.

Anyone any info on how I can sync the homepage Shortcuts across Firefox for Android and for Windows?

Or is there another way of having a synced speed dial-style homepage on Firefox on different platforms?
