Recently Firefox has not been responding to my touches when I'm browsing on the internet. I have to tap 10 to 20 times before it will register that I have touched an element on the web page. This happens in no other apps, and has been going on for about a month now. I love the recent updates but this has broken the app for me, almost makes it unusable.

OnePlus 7 pro. Latest playstore version of app.

Hi guys, I'm trying to locate the settings section that allows me to alter cookie prefs for Firefox android. All the websites I've found say the same thing: Three dots or gear icon, Settings, privacy, cookies. My Firefox menu doesn't have that.... I have three dots, settings, and then a big list of selections with 4 headings: General, privacy and security, advanced, about. None of these seem to contain an option to alter cookie preferences... please help!

Thanks in advance for taking the time to read and/or answer :)

P.s. does this page skip about for you guys too? Trying to move the cursor in this box, scroll down the page, etc, the page just jumps all over the place!

If you download a PDF file in the current Firefox beta on Android, the options that come up for opening the PDF are not the correct ones for a .pdf file.

None of the suggested apps can open PDFs and therefore you can't open the downloaded file from Firefox. I have tested this with chrome and do not have the same problem.

Screenshot shows apps suggested for opening PDF from Firefox, missing are the correct ones, Google Drive PDF viewer and OneDrive PDF viewer.

Hi,

Firefox and Firefox Nightly on Android have a problem for me where I have to tap multiple times on a link for it to register.

This is driving me nuts.

It appears as if the touch target for links is too small. My phone is a Nokia 8 with Android 9. I have Dark Reader and UBlock Origin add-ons installed. I can see the tap is registered by the phone as the toolbar pops up but taps on links take multiple taps to respond.

Chrome does not display this behaviour.

Any fix for this as I am a Firefox fan?

Thanks Mark.

Hi, I always used to have my bookmarks on my opening screen prior to the new version of Firefox but now I have been using top sites as pretty much the same thing but I am finding for instance news site like BBC news, I will go to it from to sites and it always shows what was the the last time I visited the site and have to reload to see latest content.

I'm not sure if it's just top sites but the latest content always did show before.

Today I searched Firefox for the answer to a puzzle on the game Kami2. A website claiming to have the answer, rerouted me to an awful porn page, which opened up two more extremely graphic porn pages with ads. I copied the link ( https://appclarify.com/kami-2/ ) but I searched all through my settings and several pages on the forums, to no avail; is it actually possible to report fake websites to Firefox? If it's not, I'll likely delete the app, since I don't want this hijacking of my tablet, again. If it is possible, can you make it more easily accessible?
