What is Firefox doing to harden/strength/guard/ privacy .... or "preemptively" protect consumer or public citizens from data mining or machine learning capabilities that are being performed by Government or private Business class entities outside of the public citizen sector?

More importantly when this technology potentially crosses into the pubic multiverse from a private or Government sector, is Firefox doing anything now to strengthen our first line of defense against cloud data leakage or miss configured data mining technologies? This question is somewhat different than a TOR browser bug or vulnerability.

I am asking if there is any form of shielding or upcoming boost of added privacy protection above TOR configurations or SOCK type VPN's that will offer protection against misguided cloud data usage either maliciously, criminally or pure accident?

When editing bookmarks, you can choose the folder you want them in. All of the folders and subfolders are shown. Is there a way to collapse some folders to make the list shorter? It gets tedious scrolling down if you have a lot of folders.

Since I have been trying out Firefox Preview more and more duplicate devices have been getting added to my sync and there are currently 9 of them. I have not found a way to remove these devices since they do not show up in the Firefox device management page. The way they seem to have been added is when I have been signed out of sync on Firefox Preview and I have had to sign back in.

Sites don't choose very good names for their pages. I have a number of bookmarks with train journeys and in Firefox i can rename them "a-b", "b-a", "a-c" etc. In firefox you cannot so if you have them in a collection you'd have 10 bookmarks all called "train journeys online" with no way of knowing which was which.

So just saw this was released, looking forward to seeing new features for my favorite web browser on Android. However, I'm wondering if/when Add Ons will be coming to the Preview, as I use uBlock Origin and Privacy Badger, as I like enhanced privacy/anti-tracking above and beyond what Mozilla already has built-in.

I can turn on sync between Firefox Preview and Firefox Desktop. Bookmarks and History works great. But I use a lot the Android's "Share" to send links to my Firefox Desktop and "Send tab to Device" to send links back to the phone, and now these aren't working. I've uninstalled Firefox for Android, cleaned my Devices list and re-signed/synced multiple times using both the user pwd and the QR scan.

Why does Preview lack clear history as a first-class operation, and optionally on Quit like the other Firefoxes?

In both Firefox for Android and Firefox Nightly, there is dedicated UI for clearing the history, and an option in the preferences to enable clearing history on invocations of Quit

Preview buries this functionality in the deep menus, and makes it a very tap-heavy and latent operation.

Why was this feature omitted?

These are some of the issues I ran into using Firefox preview. 1) PDF files won't download properly. A file is created but it is only about 70kb and it cannot be opened. 2) tabs reset. After sometime instead of pointing to the page or maybe reloading it, about:blank is displayed. 3) Facebook videos won't play in Facebook page instead they open in their own page. This is especially inconvenient when you consider that buy pressing back button you will go to the top of Facebook feed not where you were. 4) linked that are supposed to be open by other apps don't work. For example in google maps when you send location by email, if default browser is preview, it gives an error message.

Positives: Location of address bar, privacy features, speed

Excellent work and please let me know if there are anything I can do to help.
