Hi, I found on the page https://support.mozilla.org/de/kb/firefox-preview-such-widget a note for using the search widget by asking a question using the Mic symbol.

The page referring to a "Sprachbibliothek" which must be installed.

The German word Sprachbibliothek (which is not exact enough in this context) can be translated into language library or speech library.

I assume the page is talking about speech recognition.

What speech library must be installed. Where can it found? Is Google speech recognition meant when saying speech recognition library need to be installed?

  1. Add couple of sites to a collection
  2. Use "open tabs" option from collection options
  3. Close all tabs
  4. Repeat step 2. after some time (couple of hours, next day etc.)

Tabs are opened, but with old pages (seems like cached ones from step 2.)

NOTE: Removing cache / app data / reinstall does not fix the issue.

I am usually careful to keep the number of open tabs in my browser to an absolute minimum, to conserve memory. Is this not an issue with Firefox Preview? It seems to invite open tabs with Collections, as well as opening a new tab with every search. Should I not be concerned? Thanks for your guidance.

I'm fairly certain I discovered what's going on with the Firefox sync. It's not that it isn't working properly, it's that the mobile website you're viewing is a different address than the desktop site. For example, if I go to Kohl's on my desktop, the address is https://www.kohls.com. If I visit the site on mobile,it's https://m.kohls.com. Apparently the two sites are also entirely different, in that your desktop credentials won't work with the mobile site. Why that is I do not know, but this is not the first time I've discovered this problem with this, as well as other websites. The conclusion here is that this is not a Firefox problem, but rather a problem between some disparate websites which are not properly sharing login information between the desktop and mobile versions, and so if you run into this issue the only thing you can do is contact the owner of the website to let them know. It's also possible that this is simply a security feature and that you have to authorize mobile access, but of course the only way to find out is to ask. Enjoy the rest of your memorial day weekend.

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.

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.

I noticed that there is no option to see and manage all of my downloads except a notification that shows the progress of the download. Also, I noticed that the download percentage in the notification becomes negative as time passes, and I don't think it's supposed to do that. Is this being worked on, or am I the only one experiencing it?

When using Firefox for Android, I can open links from another app (e.g. Feedly, Proton Mail) and only a small notification box says they are opened in Firefox, without leaving the app I'm in. Once I open Firefox a list of tabs will open for all those links I clicked externally.

Firefox Preview instead opens every time I click a link from an external app. This means I need to keep switching back and forth between the two apps if I'm trying to bulk open many links, such as from a reading list.

Can this functionality, to open external links in the background, be added into Firefox Preview?

Hello,

When I try to add Twitter as a shortcut on my Android home screen, it only allows the PWA option. However, within the PWA option, it is not optimized for dark mode, given that the navigation and top bar turn white, unlike the Android Preview app. Any way to fix either of these options?
