Just wondering... what information does Firefox Focus give out? OK... so it blocks trackers and deletes cookies when you exist the browser... Does it tell the end websites everything about you? Like what mobile and other details?

I checked out a page on a website called privacy.net. This tells you everything the websites can know about you. They give you an encrypted string score based on all information collected.

I tried using Firefox Focus with different IP's. Each time I ran the test with a new IP, I still got the same encrypted string.

That's just scary.

I tried to attach a file to an email when in my Protonmail account using the Firefox Focus browser. I simply could not attach. I would touch the paperclip icon, but nothing happened.

Later I tried to attach a file to an email with in my Outlook account using the Firefox Focus browser. I simply could not attach. I would touch the paperclip icon, but there was no response.

I wonder if there is a solution to this problem. I have taken the problem personally, for some reason, and perhaps I should not have.

I have been using Firefox Focus as my primary browser on Android for a couple of weeks now and the one feature I truly miss is the Reader View. Any chance of incorporating it into a future release? For now the easiest workaround is to open the page in regular Firefox and use the Reader View there. I've also tried sharing the page to Pocket but both of these options are not as convenient as simply clicking on the Reader View button in the Title Bar.

Any comments or suggestions?

I am trying to remote debug Firefox Focus

On my PC windows desktop, I have the latest Firefox. 78.0.1 ( 64 bit ) On my Samsung Galaxy S8 I have Firefox Focus 8.5.0 (Build #341821556 78.0-20200625152958)

Firefox Preview is working, meaning I can have access to the html elements and console etc ... Firefox Focus is not working meaning in the about:debugging#/setup page only show the Firefox Preview connect option, no Firefox Focus connect. Even when Firefox Focus is opened and Firefox Preview is closed. Even when re-starting my cell or my desktop.

In Firefox Focus, under developer tools, Remote debugging via USB/Wi-Fi is activated.

In regular Firefox on Android, if I save a page to my home screen, it uses the favicon of the website as the icon of the shortcut. But in Firefox Focus, I get a purple square with the first letter of the domain name instead. Is there any way to change the icon to something more appropriate?

When closing a tab a button shows up at the bottom of the page. The button contains "Tab closed UNDO"

It won't go away. It is on the bottom of this page right now. If I switch tabs it stays on every page. Generally have to switch to another app on Android and come back to make it go away.
