I love the option to open pages in there native apps, but when I go back to FireFox the page is still there and goes back to the native app. Is it possible for FireFox to close the page once it opens the app?

Basically what's happening is I get an email from ebay. I click on a link and it goes to FireFox. Firefox opens a page then opens the ebay app. Works perfect. But if I go back to FireFox it'll open ebay again.

Thanks.

Hello!

I recently synced my firefox on my laptop to the app I downloaded for my android phone, and I followed all the steps to be sure Ecosia would stay as my search engine. I added it, I even deleted other options, but couldnt delete all the default ones, and still the last default remaining is what automatically comes up when I go to search something and I have to manually change it to Ecosia every time. I cant seem to find a way to make an added search engine act as my default in the app. Any help?

Also, considering Mozilla's honorable reputation, I think adding Ecosia to the list of default options would be a really cool idea for people to learn about another organization with similar pure motives!! Plant more trees<3

    • attached picture: under customization of search engines, clicking the three dots by Ecosia and clicking edit, my only options do not include making it a default browser**

Hi,

There used to be recommended sites when opening a new tab which I believe belonged to Pockets. I really enjoy this feature on my Desktop FF. On Android it disappeared with a major release sometine this year. I was hoping this feature would be reintroduced since FF can monetize on their Ads as well. Current installation is v.82.1.1

Regards.

Following scenario:

  • using the auto hide navbar setting (bottom nav bar) - navbar is hided
  • touching the display to scroll up the website (moving my thumb upwards)
  • BUT then the (hidden) navbar appears and I'm not able to scroll or to click a link on this website. Screen seems frozen. I need to touch the screen again! It's very annoying!

Probably I'm moving my thumb a very little bit downwards (only 1,2,3 pixel) before I move up...

In my opinion this auto hiding function is too sensitiv! Let the hidden navbar appears after some more pixels movement...

FFfA перестал загружать файлы. При загрузке вначале долго бегает ползунок, за тем выдает ошибку. Все надлежащие разрешения у приложения имеются. Проблема началась после обновления неделю назад. Так же наблюдается проблема, в том, что проигрыватель видео на некоторых ресурсах перестал корректно отображаться при воспроизведении в полном экране, некоторые элементы выходят за пределы экрана.

I need to export a collection of Firefox bookmarks from an old Android tablet. The latest version of Firefox that will run on this system is 68.0.2, which apparently did not have the ability to sync bookmarks or any option in the settings to export bookmarks. I would be happy if I could get the bookmarks in an HTML file or a plain text file. Or perhaps if I knew the directory in Android where Firefox stores the bookmarks, then I could copy it to a desktop computer.

This tablet will only run Android version 4.4.2. If I could find a way to view the support forums from a date when version 68 was still supported, I am sure I could find the answer myself.

Thanks very much! Lloyd

This new version is designed for a particular way of browsing. Is there a video that shows how to use the browser as the design intends? Right now, it's infuriating.

From what I can tell every saved URL opens as a new tab. Each Top Site, each item in Collections, each Bookmark all open as a new tabs. You can swipe side to side to change tabs, which is nice. So having a few tabs open is helpful when using this feature. But help me understand why we want every saved website open as a new tab....on a mobile phone?

Collections allows "Open Tabs". If you have 12 items in a collection.....it will open different 12 tabs. Why would you want to do this? Is this a strategy to help with ad revenue across the board?

I have short cuts for websites on my phone desktop. With the previous version when I opened a short cut Firefox would exit cleanly, now it collects every thing I open in tabs and exits to Firefox rather than my desktop. I do not like the behavior, I find myself manually deleting the tabs during the day. Is there a fix for this?

Hello again. As I suspected I would have the majority of my day consumed with this issue but I can see that Firefox has mad some type of adjustments and I thank you greatly. So I revoked my "special" from my Firefox account, signed all devices out except the one I'm using in the web session, reset my password and checked my devices. I was signed out on my two Samsung's but the android device was still signed in on the Device. The password however hadn't been updated yet so I removed sync and account from the Android. I signed in on the 2 Samsung's and synced. I then went to my firefox account and was signed into my account on the two Samsung's and 6 other web sessions that don't match my Samsung's. What do I do other than disconnect them? Can I somehow only authorize access for the devices I have? Due to the end resolver and VPN MY ip changes but the type of device is wrong. Also google said I had logged out of my account while handling this and I haven't even looked at Google. But when I did ck, it says I'm logged in with 4 devices. I only have 3 registered on google play and the login activity was all done in the last 15 mins and I haven't messed with my other 2 phones except to confirm logins for firefox. Somebody PLEASE tell me I'm missing something here?????

I get thrown out of my acct as soon as I tap post. I will be happy to go into it all again if I can talk to someone. I'm not getting my emails now. Server not found error. I'm using cloudflare 1.1.1.1 with vpn installed on a new device. I was hacked 4 months ago and have been as careful as I know how. While viewing on galaxy play my phone started downloading a paid app. I checked dns log n tried to send to cloudflare but couldn't get a connection. I tried opening borrington logs and was forced to use chrome/google which are at risk so I didn't want any of my information going through them but had no choice. Someone PLZ REPLY IF THIS POSTS. I have another device that's synced with this one Im getting emails as of now. I will stay by my phone. I'm afraid to tap anything other than post as I will b thrown out.

I used to be able to open a new tab directly to Google. Since updating, the new tab states 'Server Not Found' even though the original tab is working fine, so the server is in fact not only found but working in Firefox: this statement shows that even Firefox can't work with Firefox settings! The tab addins don't work in Android. I locked updating on my PC because each update broke things. It would appear the same problems exist on the Android version too. Have Firefox not heard of beta testing? Can I lock Android updating too? If Firefox have broken it and can't repair it then it's time to jump ship. Chrome and Samsung Internet have no issue with the server.
