Firefox preview 5.2.0 (this issue is new to this latest version). Android 9.

Refreshing the site shows it loading, but doesn't get rid of the white screen. I've been having to switch tabs, close Firefox, etc to get it to show the site. It's happened enough times now that it's annoying enough for me to report.

Mind you this isn't specific to any site, I believe it's related to the rendering engine or such. Not sure what's causing it at the moment. Will edit if I figure anything else out.

Hi. I use Firefox on multiple devices/platforms, and I've not had problems with sync before, but I'm not sure what I wanted is possible.

Specifically on my old Android phone I used Firefox beta. But this phone died a few days ago. I got a new Android phone and installed Firefox beta, signed into my account and did sync.

Bookmarks and history seem to have synced. But I was wanting - top sites - open tabs - collections to be synced from my old phone.

Are these not included in the synch process? Or is the fact my old phone died the problem?

Thanks in advance.

Too many Add to Home Screen (A2HS) notifications

I just started getting a lot of A2HS notifications today (29/05/2020) on my Firefox Nightly on Android, in a few websites a get one per page I visit, it is too much! Is there any way to block A2HS notifications from certain website (or even all of them)? I feel this overuse of A2HS will definitely lead to people deeply disliking the feature, specially due to websites that blast them every page you load, there should be a limitation or a way to block new requests from the same website.

Edit (04/06/2020): This issue lasted a day, and the many notifications were due to the news website reloading every 4 minutes or so, other websites only had it being displayed once. After that day I haven't had any more A2HS notifications.

Does Firefox allow other browsers to add stuff to its menus?

If you install for example Edge or Opera and long press on some text in Firefox you get (in the case of Opera) a "Search privately" instead of Search with Firefox (it has become hidden in the overflow menu).

Is this something Firefox allows or is it Android? To me this is a takeover of another app which Google doesn't allow so I'm guessing it is either an Android built-in feature or in Firefox. Makes me want to instantly uninstall both Firefox and the browser taking over the menu.

Could someone shed some light on this?
