Hello, Google search not offering "track package" on Android Firefox unless I switch to "Desktop mode", I assume this is function Google blocks using my user agent that says mobile. Is there a work around when using Google search? The only two obvious ways I do use is either Duckduckgo or Desktop Mode. Thanks for any input

screen shots are of mobile vs desktop mode

Hi!

There has been this weird text overlap whenever I use google image search in Firefox Android, I've tried: - Restarting the app - Reinstalling the app - Updating to the latest version (107.2.0)

But still the issue persists.

This only occurs on google image search in Firefox. This doesn't happen in Chrome and not on other search engines inside Firefox.

Any idea what might happen and how to fix this?

Hi, google.co.uk search page appears differently in Firefox when compared to other browsers. Specifically there is a menu option missing. For me this is a significant inconvenience so I'm hopeful you can tell me what I'm doing wrong. I have attached two images to highlight what I'm asking about, I've circled in red the menu items that don't display (for me) in Firefox.

Many thanks... Mark

Can't connect with the just downloaded version 66.0.4 to virtually any site - not to Google, not to NYT, not even to Mozilla - Firefox won't accept ANY certificate! Following errors appear (examples): "Did Not Connect: Potential Security Issue Firefox detected a potential security threat and did not continue to addons.cdn.mozilla.net because this web site requires a secure connection. What can you do about it? addons.cdn.mozilla.net has a security policy called HTTP Strict Transport Security (HSTS), which means that Firefox can only connect to it securely. You can’t add an exception to visit this site. The issue is most likely with the web site, and there is nothing you can do to resolve it. If you are on a corporate network or using anti-virus software, you can reach out to the support teams for assistance. You can also notify the web site’s administrator about the problem.

Or: Warning: Potential Security Risk Ahead Firefox detected a potential security threat and did not continue to www.nytimes.com. If you visit this site, attackers could try to steal information like your passwords, emails, or credit card details. What can you do about it? The issue is most likely with the web site, and there is nothing you can do to resolve it. If you are on a corporate network or using anti-virus software, you can reach out to the support teams for assistance. You can also notify the web site’s administrator about the problem.

The explanation is as follows: Someone could be trying to impersonate the site and you should not continue. Web sites prove their identity via certificates. Firefox does not trust www.nytimes.com because its certificate issuer is unknown, the certificate is self-signed, or the server is not sending the correct intermediate certificates. Error code: SEC_ERROR_UNKNOWN_ISSUER

No problems whatever with other browsers. I'm sending this with Safari.
