this is always a pain in the neck. Bought new phone, Android 11, I need to read a file, named file.htm, in memory with firefox (or other browsers). This should be my home. I authorize FF to read memory (unfortunately there is only the checkbox for multimedia files, I do not know if this is an issue), and in the address I type

file:///storage/emulated/0/file.htm

No way, no message, just white page. Also with previous phones the first time I did this was a problem, but this time seems really hard. I tried also with 4 and 5 slashes but nothing changes.

Tried also to launch the file from the file manager but it does not propose me FF even if it is the default browser, just some crap like pictures and similar app.

NOTE someone said the FF has removed the possibility for security, but at least on my pc I can do it without a glitch

Thanks in advance to whomever will reply

Let me know what app update for android will eliminate the concealment of the use of app where Firefox exports to some web desktop application but does not inform the user.

I have mainly switched and using firefox due to its ease of use "multiple search engine". It's been a couple of years, however I'm still unable to figure out how

Text to url Text to text works?

I mean let's say i'm gonna search "firefox now requires double click to switch search engines"

Text to url becomes like this- https://html.duckduckgo.com/html?q=firefox%20now%20requires%20double%20click%20to%20switch%20search%20engines


And text to text becomes like this- firefox now requires double click to switch search engines

Main point: In case of "text to url", search engine has processed and showed result. I click "search bar" and can copy url.

However I'm not sure how text to text works.....many times I immediately click search bar after clciking Enter or Go and the search text stays as it is.

Hi all. Cam anyone tell me if there will be a print to PDF feature added any time soon? I really miss the feature for printing receipts etc but it's been missing since the new Firefox interface arrived. I keep having to switch too Chrome to print.

I've had a Google but it doesn't seem to be something that's available even by an add-on.

I'm using a Pixel 6 with the latest Firefox available in the Play store.

Suggestions please :)

Thanks

Firefox with Virtual Desktops on Windows 11 - restoring tabs per desktop

I am using Windows 11 and I have 3 virtual desktops. In my Firefox settings "Open previous windows and tabs" is checked. One time I'll close Firefox and reopen it later and it opens up in all 3 virtual desktops and restores the tabs for each. Great! The next time I reopen it, it loses all the tabs and opens up in the current virtual desktop to the web page I have set as home. Not so great. The behavior seems kind of random. How do I get it to work the way I want all the time? Is there some additional setting or plugin that would do it? Or do I have to close Firefox in a certain way to get it to reopen the way I want? Is it affected by my use of Firefox on other devices with synced Firefox settings?
