I have a son who is just starting to use the internet. Do you have a kids-safe version of Firefox for Android that I can put on his tablet so that I can restrict the sites he goes to? I do not want him to have full internet access. Thanks Terry

Hello Is there a some way to install add-on which not belongs to recommended? I'm a OGAME player and this game supports very helpful add-on called Antigame Reborn. Playing without it is weak. Of course it working great on Windows FF version, unfortunately on mobile - not. Why you blocking such possibility?

I am not sure this is the right forum to be asking all of the questions below but .. I am starting here and will be guided by your feedback if only some questions can be answered here.

All my questions pertain to Firefox Nightly on Android. 101.0a1 (Build #2015874793) It is my hope that the Q&A might help other users of Firefox Nightly on Android.

  1. (generic) Where will I find discussion of or documentation (specifications, user manual, usage notes, self-documenting source code, etc.) for the various Firefox settings accessible via about:config ?
  2. (specific) What is the intended use scenario for the media.volume_scale setting?
  3. (specific) What is the intended use scenario for the media.default_volume setting?
  4. (specific) What is the intended use scenario for the media.hardwaremediakeys.enabled setting?
  5. (generic) Is it reasonable to expect that a browser be able to determine either the RMS or Peak loudness of the src for a media element and mute (i.e. set ~.volume=0) if that loudness is above some user specified level? For example:
    • Might there be metadata within the file header that describes loudness just as there is metadata that describes duration?
    • Might parsing just the first 3-5 seconds of the file be sufficiently manageable to estimate loudness without grossly impacting page load-time or grossly taxing the CPU?
    • Might the default action be to set ~.volume=0 until such time as the browser has parsed the entire src to determine actual RMS loudness .. and only then restore ~.volume to user-prescribed maximum permitted volume iff RMS loudness is below a user prescribed threshold? (the bigger the file the longer that media is muted before it can be potentially unmuted!)

Thank you, in advance, for any time you spend responding to my questions. I am especially appreciative of links that I can follow to find answers for myself rather than being spoon-fed answers on a specific case by case basis.

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?

When I have typed a few words in the Firefox search bar, I can't find a way to select an individual word to cut, copy or delete it. I have to move the cursor to the word end and backspace. I'm using SwiftKey keyboard on a Samsung s20, Android 12, FireFox 99.2

In textboxes such as this one, I can select individual words. Its only a problem with single line text fields such as the search bar, Google search bar, duckduck , name entries, etc.

Apologies in advance in case this post comes out as a mess!

Finally, Firefox does not require camera access for me to browse the file system to choose a screenshot image to upload at this support forum. So why block image attachment upload until the user grants Firefox access to the device's camera? Not cool!

When visiting this page, https://pluralkit.me/commands/#system-commands, and using "find in page" the find it page prompt just randomly closes. It happens a few ways. A few times I've been halfway through typing my search query, and on the third letter, the prompt & my keyboard disappear. Every other time I hit the "next item" button a few times and on the 1-6th time, the prompt disappears. I can re-open it but it loses my search query, and it's annoying.

I'm using Firefox

98.3.0 (Build #2015870331), b1a12ce69+ AC: 98.0.13, a31f2c481a GV: 98.0.2-20220322144853 AS: 91.0.1

On Android 12 (SP2A.220305.013.A3) on a Pixel 6 Pro. No add-ons. I've tried restarting the Firefox app.

Does not appear to happen on a few other websites I've tried.

I am trying to disable auto-refresh on my tabs when I minimize them, but when I type 'about: config' into the address bar, it just shows search engine results instead of opening it as an actual URL. I have already gone into settings and disabled all search suggestions, and it's still doing it anyway.

What am I supposed to be doing here? I spent tons of time in the support community looking for fixes to my problem and all I found were people telling me to use Nightly, but I don't want to give up basic capabilities like printing etc.

Thanks!
