After I updated Firefox on Android to version 89, at random times it crashes when I open it and nothing works excepts reinstalling it (Android says it's crashing continuously and the only thing I see after is the crash reporter). Problem is that everytime it happens I lost my collections and settings (those seems not to be synced like bookmarks).

I suspect its related to sync, I currently have 3 devices in sync, a linux desktop, an android 5 phone and an android 9 phone (I consider it the main firefox for me). It started after updating both the phones and the desktop to 89.

Firefox: 89 Android: 9 Device: Asus Zenfone Max Pro M2

Between Focus, and Nightly I am unsure which one I should go with. I've read how unhappy everyone is with the original version of the app and I have no idea about these other 2 versions or if there are any other versions of Firefox that could be better.


I'd like to hear from those that have experienced all the versions of firefox please. Thank you.

I tried setting socks 5 configuration with my firefox nightly browser on my Samsung j5 prime android phone which was successful based on the error message my browser displayed. After that I couldn't use the configurations for browsing the internet. I don't have any ads on installed like ads guard or any other installations and settings since I recently started using firefox browser.

Add URL to home screen instead of using PWA "Install"?

Hello. I would like to force the creation of an Android home screen item which opens Firefox to a specific URL though the desired site is using Progressive Web Apps. Since the site uses PWA, Firefox for Android replaces the menu item "Add to Home Screen" with "Install". Using "Install" creates a home screen item which links to the website's home page, not to the specific URL. I would like to bypass the PWA and create a simple link to the URL. I am using Android 11 running Firefox 89.1.1. The URL I would like is deep within Weather Underground.

In early 2020 on a different phone, I used Firefox "Add to Home Screen" to create a home screen item which opened Firefox to the desired URL at Weather Underground. This was on Android 10 with some older version of Firefox. That URL still works on Android 10 running Firefox 89.1.1.

I am calling it a "home screen item", but is it actually a Widget? The Android 10 and 11 Widget menus (with Firefox 89.1.1) do not let me create a new URL. How was this done in the past? I still have the item on my Android 10 phone, so can I move it to Android 11?

Recent development in the past couple months. Inputting text to input text form fields can often be slow, and is often scrambled.

I found a temporary fix of clearing cache. This needs to be addressed. Two separate phones. Firefox rose to awesomeness again a few versions ago, now, every update seems to make it worse. UI elements look worse to me now.

Hello everybody, I use Firefox for some days now, but I'm a little annoyed with the back button / back gesture usage with tabs. On all browsers I already tried, pressing back button finally close the tab after going back to the first website opened. But with Firefox, it only go to home and let the website open without closing taba. So we have to often close manually opened tabs. Is there a way to change that please ? Sorry for my bad english, I hope it's clear.

Thanks in advance.

i have some custom search engines on Firefox Android 89 (settings > search > add search engine > other).

i noticed that Firefox seems to be ordering the search engines in an arbitrary order.

when i first add the searches, they appear in the order that they are added.

but after the phone is restarted (note: not the browser, the phone), the search engines are ordered in a different way.

this same order shows up in both the settings search engine list (settings > search) and also the search engine selection list (url bar > search engine)

i have observed: - it is not sorted by alphabetical by engine name - it is not sorted by alphabetical by engine url (with or without protocol prefix) - it is not sorted by order added - it is deterministic: if i delete an engine and re-add it, even if i name it something different, after a phone restart it'll still return to the same position it was before

so my questions are: 1. how exactly does Firefox sort the search engines? 2. how do i set a custom order for the search engines?

thanks!

See how in history, all the stuff I search just shows up as Google URLS and google icons. I cant find the website that I visited without opening them all up one by one to see what they are.

Is This just a google search problem? What is this feature called?

OR is there a way to make firefox display the actual URLS?

Im on Android 11, galaxy s20, firefox app.

There is a large info box popping up in the bottom of the screen when I close tabs. I usually press 'x' and close tabs starting with the last one but this info box that says 'tab closed' and has an undo button on it, is covering a big portion of the last tab including it's 'x' button. It is even larger in landscape mode. This is very annoying and if I want to close another tab I'd have to wait for it to disappear or try to press around it. It's a useful feature but could the experience be made more better?

Whenever i have to input passwords, the dashlane app overlay appears for a split second but then goes away and it's almost impossible to use. Please don't tell me about bitwarden, I don't want to use it and that's not a solution. I also have no way of importing passwords into the browser or exporting them. For now I'll just stick with chrome but it hurts inside because i wish Firefox was better.

Every time I "tab out" to another app on my phone, and tab back in yo Firefox, it causes the page to reload.

I'm using a Galaxy S20+, so there is no shortage of RAM or any system specification - and this issue does not happen with Samsung Internet or Google Chrome.

Can this be fixed - else I will have to return to Samsung Internet.

It's very annoying having to redo forms etc. just because I switched back and forth between apps.
