Suggestion

Dedicated home button

A few years since I last used Firefox on Android, now I'm back and I'm missing a dedicated home button on the toolbar/ address bar like the one on Opera and Chrome.

Getting from an active page back to the speed dial is not one tap but three taps, which doesn't seem to be a very efficient way to do things?

Google search tells me I'm not alone wishing for a dedicated home button on Firefox Android so perhaps something to consider seriously in a not so distant future...?

Hello,

When I try to e-mail a topic from the Firefox browser, I don't have access to my default email program - Microsoft Outlook.

I've tried: Applications Choose how Firefox handles the files you download from the web or the applications you use while browsing by choosing the mailto option but no luck accessing Outlook. I would appreciate any help, please.

Hi, I hope someone can help - this is starting to get a little annoying. I'd like my New Tab page to display my Bookmarks in the Highlights section. I only check the setting to show Bookmarks since what I'm looking for is something a bit like Speed Dial. The Highlights section can populate Visited sites just fine, but no bookmarks show up. My bookmarks are saved in the default Other Bookmarks folder. Safe Mode makes no difference.

This worked when I first set it up, but now the section is blank (again). It seems to happen after PC has been shut down, but I haven't tested that properly. Trying the steps mentioned in this post https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1282646 did nothing. Last time I fixed it by deleting my bookmarks completely and re-adding them, but that's not really a long-term solution.

How to restore the blue star bookmark button in URL bar

Hi, I deleted my "save bookmark" little star (that turns blue) in the URL bar. I have tried various options to restore it, but cannot find it anywhere. I have tried the advice to go to "customize" and drag and drop the option, but the option does not exist in there (as per this question posted about 5 years ago)

https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1076141

Also watched this video, but again, the star he sees present in the customize options, does not exist for me. Perhaps it does not exist anymore at all in newer versions of Firefox. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UtsMaYzxPq0

How do I restore the star?

As an aside, I really wish that, when yo click on the star button, it wouldn't come up with a tiny "keyhole" size window in which to save my bookmarks, insert tag/search words for future searches etc. I have a huge range of saved web pages, and I rely heavily on being able to search my library of bookmarks using these key search words. It would be best if the full blown Bookmark window popped up whenever you saved a bookmark, and you could put in all your search words/phrases etc. A Description entry point would be useful too, eg "Aunt Sally might like these flowers for her birthday, I was thinking of the blue ones". Just some feedback on an otherwise really solid browser, thank you.

After a deletion of a profile; an attempt to sync back the preferences results in the search bar having the default engine not synchronised. It is overwritten to Google, despite doing sync for DuckDuckGo. I have done a parallel test on the "tracking protection" and the preference for that one does sync. Thank you for any suggestions!

EDIT: The DuckDuckGo addon accomplishes the desired effect. However, it only hides the problem.

After the last update a few days ago, I have had to go into privacy and security and reset everything, plus go into about:config and reset media.autoplay also. Still, even if the main video on a page is blocked, the little floating video remains and the sliding and floating ads and such still remain. I really need a fix for this. I do research online for a living, and having to close all these annoyances all the time is costing me time, thus money.

How do I now stop all this? Even on this page, an annoying drop-over is annoying me. Time is money, and every second counts in my work. Any help would be appreciated. TIA

Now that Microsoft has moved to a Chrome based browser with the newest release of Edge, automatic, and fully functional website translations are now standard in both Edge and Chrome. I am a US Citizen, living in Mexico, that is not yet fully fluent in Spanish. This has severely limited my ability to use Firefox, which honestly, is a pretty big deal for me. I prefer Firefox for multiple reasons, but privacy is my major concern. Is Firefox working on a solution to this massive hole in Mozilla's browser product offering? Two major competitors are now offering automatic translation. What gives?

It used to be that downloading something like a pdf and then clicking on it through the downloads dropdown would immediately open the pdf in the default system pdf viewer. Now I get a pop-up telling me the Portal "Open with" is ready which then presents me with a set of options for where to open the file. I have looked around for anyone else with this problem but haven't found anyone.

Additional info: If I use the show enclosing folder feature it actually shows me a temp folder (image attached)
