Hi, I'm trying to install a certificate to use adguard with Firefox for Android (a .crt file) , but it will not work. It always says that it failed to install. Attached is a screenshot of what happens when I try to use adguard with Firefox for Android.

Adguard has 2 workarounds for this. However, one involves about:config, which the new Firefox for Android does not have, and the other workaround requires ADB. See link below:

I dont get why you removed the ability to see the history of the window I'm in, by using the back or forward arrows. It made it very convenient to go back to where I had started from or to see what do you original topic was that I had started the window for. Why would you remove this excellent feature?

On my Windows laptop, the latest Firefox doesn't work right with the Wi-Fi login page for Hughes Internet at my local Denny's Restaurants. I have had to make Chrome the default browser so that I can get logged in and then I have to switch to Firefox. If you need a specific URL, contact me at stuff hat Phil Wells daught Net

This third comment may not be Firefox asphalt, but I need to ask - why does Dashlane, V password manager I use, not work with Firefox for Android? It works for other versions of Firefox and it works for Chrome on Android. Is that their problem or yours?

lastly, why is there not a simple email address that I can write to with questions It's not like I do very often, but being able to send a question or even an observation that might be helpful to you, to support at firefox.com, or whatever, would be easier for us users and would mean that we could keep a copy of the message that we've sent.

An and, did you know that with, at least Firefox for Android, this form won't let the user put the cursor in the middle of the text to add or delete something? If I put the cursor in the middle of the text someplace and I hit delete where I start typing, the action wants up occurring at the very end Of the message. Something's very wrong.

So, I recently got the update for Firefox for Android. Really like it so far! But I've discovered a *REALLY* weird glitch with collections...

So I added a forum I visit a lot to a Collection for quick access, right? But whenever I go to said forum by means of said Collection, the site doesn't update, showing me new posts/threads, until I hit the logo at the top, taking me back to the start of the forum (the same page I have in the Collection, but this seems to be the only way to get it to update the page). Originally I thought this was maybe just an issue with the forum, right? But then I discovered that I can *ALTER* the state of the page in the Collection (the version that isn't updating automatically) by visiting the same page through a Bookmark. If I do that, then the nect time I visit the site through the Collection, it remains in the same state it was in when I visited it through the Bookmark. So this is clearly an issue with Firefox, not the forum itself. Is there a specific e-mail or something I should message to alert about this weird glitch, or is posting here enough?

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 read some information on this page and I want to look up with some other things, but I will comeback , instead of use the same tab and backward don't know how many times to the original page, most people open a new tab.

I would like to see after I type some keywords at address bar, I can long press / swipe search suggestions and open it in a new tab without ask what to do.

Or just add 'new tab' in action bar. If there's no space, please replace 'share' with 'new tab', 'new tab' is much more frequently used I think.

In new 2020 update of firefox for android, I use ublock origin as the only addon.

For most websites, it works as intended. For some, it breaks the page. Which is ok, content blockers may corrupt a page. Naturally I disabled the extension for that specific page.

Refreshed, but page still broken. Fine, if I remove the addon completely, maybe then it will work. Refreshed, still broken. Maybe some piece of code from ublock remains in current session. Close firefox from recent apps. Restart, refresh, no success.

Did I find a solution? Yes: clearing all app data for firefox from Application settings.

After this fresh start, the webpage loads as intended. Just out of curiosity, I installed the addon again and guess what :) back to the beginning.

There is one more thing: instead of disabling ublock on that specific page, if I disable javascript on that page using ublock, at least page becomes readable

I used ublock origin in previous version of firefox and never had this issue of "never being able to disable" that is why I think this is a firefox issue, not a ublock issue.

Dear mozilla please fix this, or anyone from the forum please help me figure this out.

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?

In "collections" I saved some important websites which I open regularly. When I open those websites from collections I always get the old page version from the day I saved it in collections. (For example cnn.com)

When I save the same websites in bookmarks, the webpages open to the current version at this present moment.

Are sites saved in collections supposed to open the old website versions like that? It's frustrating because then I need to try to refresh and make sure I'm getting the up to date page version.
