I am using Firefox version 105.1.0 . I just want to make sure that all web sites not suitable for kids up to 12 years old are blocked. I did some searching. People say that there is no parental control build in for Firefox on Android. I have to use add-ons. I started Firefox and select Add-on. I can see a list of "Recommended". I saw no Parental control and there is no search option. Can you tell me how to do this ?

Hello,

Quite à few month ago, after update, my new Firefox for Android does not allow me to access to the print option. I cannot find the page nor the tools options using my mobile. When using edge, chrome or other browser, I still do have this option and therefore able to print pdf copies of the resources I do want to archive. Is it possible to know why these printing options are unaccessible on Firefox using Android ?

Regards

How do I make firefox mobile add bookmarks to my desktop bookmarks by default (Desktop Bookmarks\Bookmarks Toolbar) instead of mobile ones, so I can share them all with my desktop?

I realise you can do this manually by selecting the folder to save it to but it's something I do often and am used to not having to do this with a certain other browser

Thanks

I used to put a YouTube video with autoplay turned off, so whenever I fell asleep, the screen of my phone would turn off when the video was over.

Suddenly, some weeks ago, whenever the YouTube video stops, the screen remains on. And it drains the battery all night long.

I already completely uninstalled and reinstalled Firefox, and also tried the Video Background Play Fix add-on, but this problems persists, and it's ONLY on YouTube.

What can I do?

Hello, the firefox autofill for apps on my android phone is not working properly. I have firefox selected in autofill service. I have 'autofill in other apps' selected as well. Sometimes the 'search firefox' prompt appears. When it does I usually have to use biometrics to log in, restart the desired app, and search for the password when prompted again. If I have gotten this far, I am often only able to input the username and not the password. Is there a way to manually pull the prompt? Is there a way to copy the password from the android password manager once it is pulled up? Thank you

Trying to sync Android firefox app with laptop. Firefox Android app installed. Check. Open android settings, turn on sync. Check. QR code on laptop screen. Check. Touch "scan" button at lower frame of Firefox

    Android app, scan code on laptop. Check.

Error message: "Did you use the system camera? You must pair from within a Firefox app." No, I did not use system camera. Yes, I did activate it from the firefox app/scan button - REPEATEDLY. Somehow, firefox does not recognize it's own activation of my system camera. Please help, I need the bookmarks off my phone and onto laptop. Thank you.

System: Windows 10 32-bit laptop

Problem: non-responsive UI on one laptop only. This includes inability to configure local options. nothing works. Menus drop down, but no matter what is selected, the selection does not highlight, menu hides normally but no action is taken by the browser

If I manually type in the url it sits there. no spinning cursor, nothing.

Browser does NOT crash... It simply sits there doing nothing. All other browsers work fine.

What I have done Restart the laptop Double check Firewall permissions Ran a scan before and after installation (0 threats found) Logged in as administrator as well as user account Ran performance monitor nothing alarming noted Uninstall and Reinstall. (Problem still exists)

I noticed that image quality on Facebook for Android is quite low, compared with other browsers like Chrome, I've searched for a solution on tech support and I've found the explanation on a 2019 thread (Facebook renders lower image quality on purpose). I think I've found a good solution and I'd like to share it: I've simply installed a user agent switcher extension on my Firefox for Android app and I've selected Windows/Chrome mode. Now the image quality is comparable to Chrome's.
