I used to have bookmarks and other sites I've pinned to the home page on firefox android.

Now every page I visit is showing? Not just the site, but every page on that site, every search result. It's just junk pages filling my home page.

I'm hoping this is a bug and not some attempt to decide for me what I want on my home screen. It's really frustrating.

The only way around is to clear history on exit - but history is used - i just dont need every page i see being on my home screen.

(also the language at the bottom doesn't allow me to choose my language - English - ENGLISH. I don't speak US english.)

Before a recent update, I had my xnew tab page" set up the way I wanted it, so it only showed a few pinned bookmarks and nothing else. After the update, my new tab page is now showing items from my history after my pinned bookmarks.

I have the "recently visited" toggle turned off in "customize homepage", but they're still there.

So, how do I get rid of this clutter?

I recently got a new phone and having an issue where, for example, if I open a link on someones Instagram story, the link opens in Chrome instead of Firefox even though Firefox is my default browser. On my old phone I didn't have this issue. Actually, links opened in the app instead of browser and somehow I can't figure out the settings in this new phone to work similarly. How can I get everything to work with Firefox instead of Chrome?

Following question asked by petitechisa 7/31/21, 3:24 PM answered but not solved, by jscher2000 - Support Volunteer, then archived.

"Don't like PWA, please bring back 'add to homescreen' bookmarking/shortcut option."

I have the exact same problem as the poster, but only in last month or so. "Shortcut" doesn't open in normal browser (what's a PWA?) and page doesn't have a menu/URL bar, so useless. Normal app either gives "Add to Home Screen" or "Install" option, but both result in PWA (I guess), not a shortcut which opens in app. i. e. menu option irrelevant. Not happy (Just been reading a GitHub stream on the subject - deliberate Mozilla choice! Nobody likes PWA, get rid!!!)

When I used to open to the homepage, I would only see my pinned sites, but now my browsing history/most visited sites are added next to my pins. It goes away when I delete my history but there's no way to remove it completely (they just keep coming back when I browse again). The help section for this is also incorrect as there is no slider in the settings anymore to turn it off.

Also: when I go to the homepage I can no longer access my tabs/settings? I have to visit a site for these to pop up in the top right corner.

Configure FireFox for Android to allow port 10080 - "Guest" SSID- will Nightly allow port 10080?

I am hitting a brick wall.

I have a house guest (my housemate's girlfriend) that I want her to only use the Guest SSID on my Linksys Model EA6900 router for her Android phone. The guest SSID uses port 10080.

I have been able to configure FireFox (for PC) on my laptop (as trial) to allow port 10080 as access for Guest SSID using "about:config" and it works. My problem is finding a browser for Android that will allow me to reconfigure it to allow port 10080 for her to use.

I was informed that possibly "FireFox Nightly" may allow this configuration. Attempting to configure FireFox on an Android using "about:config" does not work.

Will FireFox Nightly allow me to configure it to use port 10080 so she can access the guest SSID? If so what is the configuration instructions and where do I download Firefox Nightly.

If I am able to reconfigure FireFox Nightly to allow port 10080 for the guest SSID I assume that she will not have access to any other devices on the main/home SSID which is my main concern.

Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks.

Can I configure FireFox Nightly or Beta to allow port 10080 on an android phone for router "Guest" access

Forgive me. I may have posted this question already but I can't find my post.

As we know port 10080 has been blocked by many if not all internet browsers and port 10080 is the port that most routers use for their "Guest" SSID access.

I have been told that it may be possible to configure FireFox "Nightly" or "Beta" to allow port 10080 access which is what my router uses for the Guest SSID.

This would be for an Android phone to be able to connect to the Guest SSID on my router using port 10080.

Does Nightly or Beta allow this and if so what are the reconfiguration instructions so I can allow port 10080 access on the Android phone?

Thank you for your help.
