Hi,

Now when i click the address bar at the top I'm met with a Blank Screen whereas before the update I had my Top Sites "pinned" for quick & easy access. I now have to faff around going into the bookmarks which is pointless when this feature was working perfectly well, why remove it?

Also when i start Firefox fresh i see small icons for the top sites but they're so small the URL/Name doesn't show up so i have no idea which icons lead to which sites. These need to be bigger like post update and put back line they were before.

If it ain't broke don't fix it. This update is a massive fail, please revert ASAP.

The new version is ugly, slow, user unfriendly and all my tabs were closed, my configuration was mixed up. It reinstalled google and bing search again. So I want to go back to the previous version (if possible) or I need another browser that is better than the actual firefox. Does someone has tips for me where to find the previous version or what browser is at last okay to use?!

Before the Daylight update I was able to disable loading of all images from the advanced settings options in the settings.

That's gone now. That feature isn't in any of the major competitors either. Vivaldi, Edge, Brave, Chrome. No setting for that. I'm very frustrated with that. What now?

I'll be a lone voice on some help forum where my request for the return of this simple feature will be ignored for years?

This feature going to come back anytime soon?

hello ...

yesterday Firefox updated itself on my tablet ( hung on the charger while I was at work ). In the evening all my open tabs were closed, the bookmarks were gone and FF was set as default browser. Where did my tabs and bookmarks go ? Auto update is / was disabled - default browser is another browser for good reason. FF runs / ran there actually permanently and was only sent into the background. Because the tablet should not be synchronized because of special software, the bookmarks only exist there. Why were they removed during a normal update ?

The lastest version of firefox for android just does not work on my phone, whats the last version of mobile firefox where i actually have the abillity to stop these updates. As of now i have to reinstall an old version every time i walk past an open wifi but i dont know how far back i have to go before i can disable updates.

Removing the abillity to stop updates is crippling if you have issues, this is a major oversight and it should never have been taken away.

The last update of Firefox Android completely broke base functionalities such as tabs, and you now have to go into sliding sub-menues just to open up new tabs, or even switch between tabs.

For the longest time, I've been trying to stave off using Chrome, even as more and more pages seem to flat-out not work, but with this latest update, I really can't excuse using Firefox anymore, as even basic usage now becomes a constant back-and-forth, trying to fight against the application itself.

Is there any way to resolve this, or am I forced to migrate?

Or, if this is not possible and Firefox Android 79 is indeed unusable, how do I upgrade to 68 (which I believe was the previous version) without losing my pre-existing tabs (of which I have oh-so-many).

Hello,

Since the update to the new Firefox for Android (79.0), some of my saves usernames and corresponding passwords are not prefilled anymore. Some others are. The credentials are all still there - I can see and review them in the Settings -> Logins and passwords -> Saved logins.

Some credentials are for HTTP basic authentication (2x), some are for simple login forms (2x). From the basic authentications, both are *not* prefilled. From the regular HTML forms, one is and one is not.

Is this a know bug? If so, how can I help to diagnose the problem? If not, what am I doing wrong?

Thanks in advance, Frans-Willem

There have been so many complaints and one star reviews about version 79, would it really be so hard to reintroduce version 68 back onto the play store under a new name like "Firefox legacy" or "Firefox classic", so we could run that side by side with 79 until the dismal failure that is version 79 has at least been fixed to the extent that people can decide it's worth changing over, i.e., when the things that are most important to them have been fixed? For me that is a customisable home page because I've set up my own site to be my home page on all browsers on all platforms because (so I thought) nobody would be stupid enough to release a browser that doesn't allow that to be customised, and more access to important addons like adblock plus and the home page button, and, of course, a back button.

You could add a big disclaimer that there would be no security or other updates in the description.

Hi,

today, I got the upgrade to Firefox for Android 79. There were several changes I noticed but didn't pay any attention to it. Many changes aren't important to me, some changes showed their importance only after I read some responses to this upgrade.

First and foremost: I miss the feature to gather links in the background and open them when I switch to Firefox. For me that's almost a dealbreaker as this was the feature that made me switch from Chrome to Firefox. Are there any plans to get "Open URLs in background" back?

A few responses mentioned that now we were unable to resort the list of open tabs. The tab list is not my favorite but I could live with it (the option to change it to tiles would be nice, though). But there are always situations when I want to reorder my tabs. Are there any plans to reintroduce tab sorting?

In respect to other missing features: Are there any plans to reintroduce them? Where can we find your roadmap for Firefox for Android (featurewise, technical details are mostly unimportant for end-users)?

I appreciate all the effort that went into this major overhaul of Firefox for Android. But I really miss a clear and concise communication of the changes, which features will be gone forever and which will be delivered in a later update. Your help articles not being up to date aren't helping either (https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/open-links-background-later-viewing-firefox-android). There are some welcome new features in this release and I will give them a try. But I don't need a browser that does everything as all other major browsers. Scrolling through different apps and being able to send URLs to Firefox without losing focus seemed kind of unique to me.

Bests, Masin

I am appalled that I had to create ANOTHER freaking useless account just to post feedback here. I don't want a Firefox account. I don't collect web sites. I don't want you to suggest web sites. I don't want you to save my passwords. I don't want you to autofill my fields. I don't want to store anything in the "cloud" (aka someone else's computer). I don't want to sync anything across multiple devices. I don't want my browser to access my microphone, camera, contacts, location, or anything else except the damned internet. I don't want my browser to choose ANYTHING for me. I just want it to do what I tell it to. And do it well.

I WANT TO SET MY OWN HOME PAGE. I want my browser to be able to load web sites. I want my browser to be able to play videos. I want my browser to be able to upload and download files. I want my web browser to be functional and fast. Lightweight, small footprint, mobile friendly. I don't want it to be a data repository, or a personal assistant, or a password vault, or a crutch, or a tracker, or another THING that I have to manage.

This applies to both desktop and mobile.

I want Firefox to be the lean, mean, browsing machine like it was when it first burst onto the scene.

HOME. PAGE.

What in the name of all things Holy was the team who wrote the update to the Android for Firefox smoking when they posted the newest updates? They took a familiar UI on my tablet and turned it into a study on how to remove any hint of intuitive. It has become a study in ponderous and how to add additional steps to simple activities. For example, there is only one tab visible at a time, and switching between even just two tabs takes an extra step or two..and really, there are no tabs anymore. A separatepop-up window??? Really? That was supposed to be better? Are all the programmers in rehab?

I can understand that, on a phone, simplicity is sometimes required, but the same interface for a tablet is just the most ignorant thing I have seen in my 35+ years of computing. When I was teaching and built a computer lab in a junior high school in the early 80's, the Commodore Vic20s we used were more intuitive than the new Android FF.

The best way to describe the new version would be: "Looks like Mozilla.org if finally trying to rid itself of Android users so they can dump it all together and write it off on their taxes."

The creators of this version should all be sentenced to one year of nothing but Windows 3.0 on a 386 PC with no posobility of parole..
