In the previous version of Firefox Beta for Android downloaded from Google Play Store, I could toggle the esni option to true, under about:config. Now this version 85.0.0-beta.2 the option is removed. I have enabled trr.mode to level 3, also the trr uri is unchanged and using Mozilla Cloudflare DNS. But when I use Cloudflares ESNI checker, Firefox Beta fails the ESNI test. Why was this option the network security esni mode? Or is under a different name? This issue is also present in the Firefox Nightly Build for Android from Google Play Store.

I accidentally downladed a program (Weather Home) that did weird things to my icons. I got rid of the Weather Home icons, but my Firefox icon was now in a big white box, which I didn't want. I deleted that icon, thinking I could download the regular Firefox icon, but I can't figure out how to do that. (At this point, I would even take the icon in a big box back.)

I can't seem to find an option to change my search engine to Duckduckgo from the default (Google).

I found a post on reddit, but it seems to be for an old version since I can't see a Search menu option in Options.

I'm on Oculus 2, FF Reality 12.2.

Thank you!

I have two different items in my Collection, but both have the same name, which seem to have been taken from the page title. The only difference in the URLs should be the parameters. These items display two very different sets of information.

How to I tell them apart? I can't find a way to rename them.

I tried long-pressing on them, but nothing happened. I can't even see the full URLs.

Hey Folks - I really liked how you could listen to YouTube clips even with a locked phone before the major upgrade of Firefox Mobile for Android. I see that now most of the plugins including the "Video Background Play Fix" are not available. Is there another plugin with which the same can be achieved or just another way?

Hello, in the last few days I have been seeing a weird issue when browsing webpages on Firefox for Android. Horizontal bars, alternately in white, black or grey, obscure small parts of the page, usually disappearing after a short while. This seems to happen particularly often when I'm highlighting text on the webpage.

This hadn't happened before.

Images are added for reference.
