In Firefox Android a few search engines are included by default. And we can also add other search engines. Brave Search is new best search engine but if I add it via other option it doesn't detect that Brave is default search engine means every time I search something, Brave search says me to make it default even if it already is so!

So if Firefox keeps it built in and we can add just by clicking on Brave, it would be better.

I downloaded Firefox lockwise to my laptop. I am running windows 7. Then i hit sync to my mobile phone, which does not have firefox on it. Now my phone is asking for a password to unlock the phone. I have tried numerous passwords and still can't unlock the phone. My landline phone number is showing up on the screen when I push the on button, but when I swipe the screen it shows enter password to unlock. How do I get back to normal on my phone and delete sync from the phone? I have disconnected sync on my laptop with no success. Help ASAP please. email:

Lost inactive tabs due to crash - any possibility to restore?

Dear Community,

I used for three days the function sync on firefox. In this procedure I wanted to transfer my android tabs to my desktop pc. On my desktop pc I have seen all tabs of my android phone. So I have started to transfer the tabs to my desktop pc. After a short time my mozilla firefox on android crashed and after my restart of my android firefox all inactive tabs were gone.

So this was my first time, when I made this bad experience in over more than 15 years of using firefox. Meanwhile I searched for different solutions, but nothing fitted to my challenge.

I hope really, that somebody could help me:

  • Is there any possibilty to see the cache on the desktop pc from the android data, which was seen in the sync tunnel?
  • Is something saved on the sync cloud, where I could get data from?
  • Is a cache file existing of the sync data?
  • Is there any option of old session restore? If yes, where can I find different backup files on android?
  • Can I connect with e.g. SDK in the developer mode and get files of sessionstore.js? A JASON file of the inactive tabs would be really nice.
  • Any other developer modes, which could be helpful? Trouble Shooting?
  • Can I root the mobile phone afterwards and get hidden files of firefox?
  • Are there any other unvisible places, where the data of deleted inactive files could be find?
  • Can I access data through the android firefox browser?
  • Perhaps you will have a solution through SDK?
  • Do you have other devtools to try? I am fine with remote debugging through usb, if you will have a solution for it.

I appreciate your support and hope to find a solution for my request. I loved firefox for a long time.

Thank you so much.

Kind regards

Hey guys, why does the firefox android could not click a very simple small button? For example an "x" button (cancel) and etc. As long as it's small the firefox would not interact with it properly, instead when i click it firefox thought that i long pressed that small button and its kinda annoying because what i need to do is to zoom in for that button just so the firefox could properly click that and not long pressed. Problem is almost all the websites i visit has a button like that and so does it mean i will literally need to zoom a simple "x" button or any kind of small details on a webpage just for firefox could properly identify them? Example of whats happening link Browser: latest firefox android Device: Realme 6 , 8/128

Firefox Daylight (94.1.2) > Secret Settings > Use third party CA certificates (Allows the use of third party certificates from the Android CA store)

1. Hay dispositivos con Sistema Operativo Android que NO disponen de la posibilidad de instalar certificados en el Almacenamiento del Usuario.

1. There are devices with Android Operating System that DO NOT have the possibility of installing certificates in the User's Storage.

2. Parece que Firefox NO reconoce y acepta aquellos certificados que hayan sido instalados en el Almacenamiento del Sistema.

2. It seems that Firefox does NOT recognize and accept those certificates that have been installed in the System Storage.

Digo "parece que no" porque desconozco la raíz del problema. Sin embargo, así viene sucediendo desde que aparecieron las "Secret Settings": Firefox NO atiende los certificados instalados en el Almacenamiento del Sistema.

I say "it seems not" because I do not know the root of the problem. However, this has been the case since the "Secret Settings" appeared: Firefox does NOT serve the certificates installed in the System Storage.

Y esto origina un gran problema a todos los usuarios de Firefox cuyos dispositivos Android sólo permiten instalar certificados en el Almacenamiento del Sistema.

And this causes a big problem for all Firefox users whose Android devices only allow to install certificates in the System Storage.

En esa situación, Firefox no funciona correctamente cuando debe interactuar con otra magnífica aplicación como es AdGuard AdBlocker.

In that situation, Firefox does not work properly when it must interact with another magnificent application such as AdGuard AdBlocker.

Por favor, observen que no hablo de AdGuard como "add-on" de Firefox...

Please, note that I do not speak of AdGuard as a Firefox "add-on"...

Y, por lo que más queráis, os ruego que, aunque el planteamiento de este problema pueda ser algo difícil de comprender, pongáis toda vuestra atención en el hecho de que Firefox parece fallar a la hora de utilizar cualquier certificado que haya sido almacenado en el Sistema.

And, for what you want more, I beg you that, although the approach to this problem may be somewhat difficult to understand, put all your attention on the fact that Firefox seems to fail to use any certificate that has been stored in the System.

Sólo trato de advertir a todos sobre este gran fallo con la esperanza de que ustedes, los de Mozilla, puedan y quieran arreglarlo.

I'm just trying to warn everyone about this big bug in the hope that you, guys at Mozilla, can and will fix it.

Recently my Google pixel phone got the Android 12 update. Since then I'm having issues with Firefox loading websites like Walmart, Sams club, Lowes. It seems to be serving the desktop versions and it is hard to navigate. The toggle switch for "Desktop Site" is off, so not sure why it is showing the desktop site. The attached images show how Walmart site shows in Chrome and Firefox. My firefox version is 94.1.2. If anyone has any suggestions, please let me know.
