When reading certain Web pages such as this one https://www.telegraph.co.uk/business/2021/06/17/economy-needs-prosperous-london-whether-north-likes-not/

the screen width changes to match the graphic when it gets loaded, meaning that from that point onwards you have to scroll the page left and right to be able to read it. You could also zoom out, but that usually makes the text so small it's unreadable.

This doesn't happen on Chrome browsing the same page, the graphic is scaled to fit the screen width rather than the screen width scaling to fit the graphic.

If you are worried about the graphic becoming unviewable if it is scaled to the screen width, perhaps it can be kept at original scale but so can the rest of the text on the page, so you can continue to read sensible sized text without scrolling left/right, and only need to scroll/zoom if you want to see the full width graphic.

The first two screen shots attached are from FF, the second two are the same page but in Chrome.

The three dots for menu on bottom bar have very less space. Its hard to touch it especially from left hand thumb. It would be nice if horizontal space is increased for menu button. So many times it happen, on an attempt to touch menu item from left hand thumb, tab option is clicked. It would be even better if instead of three dots any other icon is chosen.

Among other things, I didn't like the bright theme of the browser UI in the newer version. I prefer the browser itself to have darker theme. However, I didn't expect it to affect websites, and I don't want it to. How do I set the browser to a dark theme that has no affect on sites' themes?

On mobile phone, it is far easier to read sans serif fonts.  These even display for a second before a web page imposes its fonts.  FF Android used to allow (about:config) the user to choose between system or other font, or web font.  The switch is obviously still there - this could easily be incorporated into a simple Settings option.  This is a big deal-for me it affects both the legibility and loading speed of all web pages.  Rather than the limited, often wizzy add-ons now permitted, FF might focus on making pages legible and at least giving us the choice.  Either a settings change or allow an add-on (there are several) to manage this.  Not a problem in the desktop version;  only FF Android.  It has gotten so bad, I have switched to Kiwi as a browser which allows full customization.  But I would far prefer to use FF as it is more secure and would simplify synching.  Cannot understand why this is so difficult to tweak.  Thanks

Most mobile sites are of a lower quality than their desktop counterparts. Less features and constant requests to download unnecessary apps are annoying and waste screen space. How do I force the Firefox app to only open desktop sites?

Because when I do the toggle bar it only works for one tab and when I open links to new tabs, it switches them back to the mobile version. Which for some sites that prevents me from being able to read or access things because the mobile version switches to a page that is just a prompt to download the app and clicking the desktop toggle doesn't bring me back to the page I wanted.

I saw there used to be an addon that would have been useful. It's dead now. Is there any useful replacement add on? Any convenient workarounds?

Hello,

1) I am using web apps on Android and the button "Print" within any web app works on all browsers, in case of Firefox it's not working at all. 2) Moreover, whenever I select text or anything on web and press on "Share" Firefox has no option of Print, while all other browsers have it.

Could you please tell me when are you going to fix these two? And if you please suggest me which version of old Firefox app to use, where these both versions were working on Android. Currently, we are heavily relied on other browser apps and can't get back to Firefox.
