After the last update of firefox for android, I find that the uBlock Origin Addon is no longer in the list of recommended addons, but it can still be seen in the addons for android website. I tried to install it through the website, but after downloading the addon xpii file it says, “cannot open this file.” Does uBlock Origin no longer support firefox for android? Or is there any way to install it. My firefox version is 84.1.4

I want searches from made from the home screen widget to open the query in a new tab. Right now it just uses whatever was the last tab I had open, which is annoying when multitasking. I can't find how to do this anywhere.

I get the error "could not open file" after downloading a pdf file in Firefox for Android. This happens for most, but not all, pdf files. It seems Firefox does not use the default Android pdf viewer. In chrome it works perfectly. Before this error occurred the pdf file was opened in a navigation app, useless.... I tried many things: Changing default pdf app in android Removing the navigation app. Reinstalling Firefox Installing Firefox nightly, Trying to Change the default pdf viewer in about:config (not possible in Firefox daylight). Unable to change this. How to fix this bug? Why doesn't Firefox use the default pdf viewer of android? Thanks!

Apparently my external download manager ponydroid 1.5.10 is not supported? It does not show up when external download manager enabled in advanced settings. Is there a way to make it an option? Barring support can you provide a complete list of compatible external download managers so I can be sure to select one that works.

I'm very upset by the fact that they decided to not allow the Firefox for Android users to be able to access about:config to make changes as basic as change in the downfall default folder. Is there any other way to change the default folder for downloads? It's ridiculous that the config was taken away from users. Especially when basic changes, like change in the default download folder, is not possible in their settings menu.
