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

Previous version of Firefox beta for Android I was able to go to the list of browser tabs, press and hold a tab to then drag the tab to change its position in the list of open tabs. This feature seems to have either disappeared (if so, a reason for me to delete Firefox Preview and switch to a new browser) or it's still possible but is completely unclear how to do it now.

I'm totally amazed to find that the very first and natural way of refreshing contents... doesn't exist on Firefox.

As a replacement you need to find the refresh option in the "3-dots" menu. Ergonomy ? What's this place again ?

I really don't understand how such feature is just not there. It should be one of the most obvious gesture to implement.

Is this possible to make it happens ?

Thx.

I have added custom certificate authority to the Android system certificates store. But it seems that Firefox doesn't use native store unlike other browsers do. I have to click to advance and allow every time I visit our "unsafe" university web.

Why there is no option to use native Android certificates store or to install CA into browser? That's quite security issue.

I have uBlock Origin installed, but I can't see how that would block about:config. I see some SSL error text in that big URL blob, not sure what that's about.

For some reason every time I open FF on Android the default mode is now "private" (incognito). Not exactly a problem but under these circumstances my notification shade always has "close all private tabs", which I pretty much never want to do.

Pixel2XL running Android 11, this behavior only stated 2 or 3 days ago.

Thanks in advance!

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'm not sure where to post this since it isn't a question.

I normally keep a lot of tabs open on mobile Firefox, and recently updated to a new version which changed the design of the browser drastically. One thing it changed is the open tab viewer, which now opens from a window at the bottom of the screen. The problem is that when you start to scroll your finger down (so that you can view older tabs higher up) it pulls the whole tab viewer down and away. It is so annoying to use and has no real way to open scroll immediately.

The closest thing I have found to a solution is opening the tab viewer, scrolling up (so the page goes down) so it bumps against the bottom of the page, then scroll down only while the scroll is visible. An easy solution for this is to make it require 2 fingers to close the tab viewer while over the tabs, or 1 finger when on the notch at the top.
